From La Boulaie to Grey Gardens on One Life to Live

You won’t wanna miss the August 3 episode of One Life to Live, when Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati transform La Boulaie into Grey Gardens! When Blair (Kassie DePaiva) starts to worry neither she nor her meddling Aunt Dorian (Robin Strasser) will ever find love again, she imagines what life could end up like for the pair, envisioning a tragically-comic scenario inspired by Grey Gardens, the documentary and later HBO telepic about a mother/daughter pair of Bouvier relations of former First Lady Jackie Kennedy Onassis, who end up living in a rundown mansion after exhuasting their trust funds. Isn’t it inspiring how OLTL manages to continue to put out a top quality, visually appealing, creative product even in the throes of a recession?

    OLTL, AMC, and GH have the best sets on daytime.

    Congratulations to the OLTL production staff for their wonderful, creative designs. Bravo! Bravo! Bravo!

    In contrast, Y&R may be the soap to make the most cash, but it has worst sets. The homes of it wealthy citizens are dark, dated, and unrealistically pint-sized. Neither the Chancellor Estate nor Neil Winter’s home has been updated in over a decade.

    Isn’t it great when a group of intelligent, creative people are still dedicated to the preservation of the genre they work in? I for one can’t wait to see that show. Kudos once again to OLTL for continually giving me a reason to tune in.

    I can’t wait for this episode. When OLTL is good it’s really good. Blair gets on my nerves when she’s with Todd but I love the Cramer women.
