Is OLTL Getting Rid of the Stacy Morasco Fiasco?


Could One Life to Live be getting rid of Stacy Morasco (Crystal Hunt)? According to post made on Carolyn Hinsey’s Facebook page it could be happening. She wrote,

"hears OLTL is getting rid of Stacy…."

Personally, I think that Kim (Amanda Setton) has done amazing things to rehab the character of Stacy, but I know not everyone agrees.

Would you be happy if One Life to Live gets rid of Stacy?

    I’d like to see the character rehabilitated by the love and fight for custody of the baby. I’d like Rex and Gigi to find out sooner rather than later that the baby is not his.

    Kim has made so Stacy so bearable, and I just love Kim on her own; however, Stacy needs to go…so I think the best way would be for Stacy dying in chidbirth, and Kim stringing along Rex, Oliver and Schuyler along for a game of "who’s the daddy?"

    Kim brings out the worst in Stacy, so I hope she’s gone too. I hope they’re clearing house to make room for Thorsten Kaye…

    I think we can see where this story is going. Mitch will kill Stacy and take the baby, thinking it’s his grandchild.

    As I said in the forums, Crystal Hunt’s not bad, but Stacy is so awful. She’s like a lame wannabe version of Sami Brady circa 1995. Honey, you ain’t that fly.

    No!  Kim is great and she brings out the best in Stacy. 
     
    As for this being a way to clear room for Mr. Kaye and Ms. Minshew, I have mixed feelings.  If they good bring viewers to the show then, I could grit my teeth and bear it. 

    But since OLTL will be adding Gina T. and Daniel C. fresh off the plane from Springfield, IL, can this show pay for 4 more major stars?  What happens to our favorite actors and their screen time?  I don’t want  to see less of the current cast to make way for 4 new cast members.

    That would be awesome to me. I wish Kim would go to but I don’t think so. Now if only Gigi and Rex, man those actors need to relearn or learn to act. It’s painful to watch scenes with them.

    I know that lots of people think OLTL is the best show right now and it’s certainly better than the other show I watch: GH, but the focus needs to be on great stories. the Stacy story hasn’t worked because it required everyone around her to lose IQ points and the addition of Kim gave her a “friend” who feeds her delusions. I think it would work if Stacy’s secret came out and she and Kish became friends until she gave birth and there was a custody battle which Stacy loses but Kish allow her to be part of the baby’s life. She wouldn’t become Pollyanna but like Carly on GH she could recognize that her biggest enemy is herself and attempt to behave better.

    As for moving people off the canvas, it’s too much to hope that Todd would ever go and Dani has sl potential with Matthew and Destiny but Tea could go and it looks like Ross is a goner. I’d love a lot less of Starr/Cole/Langston/Markko lets send them off to college in recurring land. Am I the only one who doesn’t care about Rex and Gigi and if they’re going they should take Shane and Schuyler, I like Scott Clifton but what does Schuyler add as a character, and finally another actor I like but character I don’t: see ya Kim.

    By the by, didn’t Daniel Cosgrove sign on somewhere else?

    My thought on Gigi and Rex is that they are together so much between on screen and off that they are mirroring each others ticks and the longer it goes on the worse it gets.  Since I see Gigi as the weak link, I would like to see her leave and Rex be tried with someone else.  I like his scenes with Natalie, Roxie and Bo – I just cant stand him in the scenes with her.

    To make room for Gina, Dan G (who I hope returns) Zendall, a recast Joey and the return of Cassie, I would happily lose Gigi, Greg, Rachel, Tea, Stacy and Kim.  If they dont bring back Cassie, keep Rachel and play on the Kevin/Rachel history.

    I used to hate Stacy, now I looove her. And if Stacey is going does that mean Kim is gone too? Because that would suck big time. Kim is like soo much fun!

    You know…with Mitch Laurence back, and this mysterious character visiting him at the prison, I keep having this feeling that there are closet cultists lurking in Llanview. Ultimately, with Mitch being Rex’s father and Stacy believing she can fool anyone and all of a sudden she has this appreciation for Mitch, if Stacy becomes involved with Mitch, she is practically lamb for the slaughter and that could be her ticket out of Llanview. Would Kim be one of Mitch’s followers? I think if Stacy is leaving it’s going to tie in nicely. 
    This year has been good…as for Stacy, I was behind when everyone said she was a character that on the canvas was nothing but overkill; I disagree on that. After catching up, come on guys she wasn’t on that much! Crystal Hunt played her very well – I really hated her, and sometimes you need somebody on a soap to hate just for the sake of keeping a mental balance. No seriously, Stacy is a great filter for all the other skanks and jerks that can populate your life; her character is a great outlet.
    The only issue I have with the character, is the way she is written in the sense…we never fully find out why she does what she does. I mean there has to be more motivation than just having been in love with Rex since high school. Stacy really needs to talk about her life; her self esteem issues need to be magnified a bit more for me.
    Also, I don’t want her or Gigi to go. I want to find out that Stacy and Gigi are the daughters of some legacy characters from the show’s history. At first I thought Mimi King, because than Gigi would have a deeper connection to Bo, as Mimi was one of Bo’s favorite lovers back in the early, mid 80’s. The more I thought about it…it would be fly if Gigi and Stacy, who I always thought were a warped version of Karen and Jenny Wolek, were the daughters of Karen Wolek and Steve Piermont. How fun would it be to have Judith Light show up for a day with her real life husband who played Steve. Maybe they faked their deaths, upon which Stacy thought they were dead, to go back on the run and want to make a mends with Gigi. Judith Light could share some scenes with Erika Slezak, thank Viki for being a surrogate mom…wouldn’t that be an awesome?

    It’s a Christmas miracle!

    Stacey is just unbearable in every way. I do enjoy Kim. Though, I don’t see her purpose if Stacey isn’t around. So I’m willing to lose both just to get rid of one.

    I could care less about Stacy but I love Kim.  They have to find a way to keep her.  She is the ONLY reason I watch now since the hatchet job they did to Ross.

    But if Stacy isn’t around who will be Kim’s friend?

    If Kim manages to tie herself to the canvas via Clint then i’m ok with losing Stacy. But if losing Stacy means also losing Kim, then i’ll endure through Stacy cause Kim is a breath of fresh air on that show.

     Llanview76, your idea about Kim being one of Mitch’s followers is inspired.  Now that’s she’s infiltrating the Buchanans, she could do a lot of juicy damage.  Also, the way she was targeting the Buchanans seemed a little too "out of the blue", and this would explain it.  Very interesting idea!

    I haven’t really liked Kim (even as a villain), but I think that’s because I’ve lumped her in with the horrendous and one-dimensional Stacy.  Perhaps on her own, she can become a real force for delightful evil in Llanview.

    Kim is so ugly. I’m sorry to be so superficial, but she looks like a mutt. I’ve never really disliked a soap star based on their looks before, but I can’t stand looking at her.

    Without Stacy, she serves no purpose on the show. I think it’ll be a two-for-one deal and Kim’ll be out too.

    I used to hate Stacy too, but she has become more bearable since Kim showed up. I don’t really care one way or another about Stacy leaving, but PLEASE keep Kim! By the way, I think she is gorgeous! I’m not sure how anyone could consider her ugly, but to each their own I guess!

    since kim came on screen, i’ve really enjoyed stacy. stacy & kim are way better to watch than rex or gigi. them to just suck and annoy the hell out of me. stacy & kim make me laugh & i think once the baby comes that stacy it will change stacy & maybe she could befriend kish & raise the baby w/ them. as for rex & gigi, i just hope they break up at this point. even their kid is annoying me. even if you hate a person, you shouldn’t be a total a** to them when their pregnant. someone needs to swat that boys behind. shane, rex, & stacy just need to leave my screen till they stop sucking.

    I’ve hated Stacy for months and they decide to get rid of her now that she’s somewhat tolerable.  I hope Kim sticks around. 

    I’m actually looking forward to Kim and Clint.

    I’m okay if it’s for her to be a sacrificial lamb for the "Kish" baby (i.e. her dying during/after child birth). It’d be a bummer if they scrap the ENTIRE story line…. regardless of how much I can’t stand Stacy (although she’s been slightly more tolerable recently).

    I hope they keep Amanda Setton (Kim). She adds a little feisty, sex-kitten/comedic relief into the mix.

    If ONE LIFE is cancelled, I will be crestfallen. That show has been my everything lately. I marvel at the talent, and the way the writers actually listen to what the fans are in need of. They embrace story, tradition, diversity. It’s such a fantastic show!!!!
    Somebody pray with me!

    Guys, listen Nelson as much as I like him tends to overhype things. I think if it was a cancellation you know  DC would be all over it. It could be a popular actor leaving their soap or maybe getting a new HW for OLTL. . So stay calm guys, we don’t want any soap to get cancelled.

    Besides, Nelson’s bad news may have nothing to do with an ABC soap at all.  I think the next big shoe to drop in the soap world is the cancellation of ATWT.

    Didn’t NB note, a few weeks ago in TSR, that it looked as if ATWT would get another year?

    If so, something must have changed in the past week or two.

     I’m all for cutting bait with trying to make Stacy an interesting part of the canvas at this point.  However as someone said, the interesting connection/twist to the KISH storyline would be the biggest loss.
    Kim’s involvement with the Buchanans would be a lesser loss, but the idea to tie her to Mitch Lawrence solves that AND makes sense.  Her arrival in Llanview is timed right for her to have been sent as an advance spy for the cult of Mitch.

    But how ONE LIFE TO LIVE is that…a cult member turned stripper…I love it. ♫ Here’s what do when you don’t find the rainbow’s end…♪♪

    And I do feel bad for ATWT…maybe Ellen Wheeler is a better director. It’s not like they made her the show’s EP or head writer.

    It does seem like OLTL is trimming fat. Jared’s gone, but Natalie can easily be paired with John. Stacy’s going, but they still have the Rex/Gigi/Schuyler triangle.

    I’m thinking they are clearing room for Gina Tognoni and Thorsten Kaye. If Patrick returns, Natalie and John are a total greenlight because Marty will instantly leave John for her husband.

    Officially OLTL is denying that Stacy/CH is going anywhere.
    BUT Carolyn Hinsey just wrote this on facebook a few minutes ago: "hears OLTL is getting rid of Stacy… but Amanda Setton (Kim) is staying!"

    I hope this isn’t true, I *love* Stacey and Kim! I think there’s a lot of potential in Stacey’s storyline, a custody battle between Stacey and Kish, explanation into her back storey, there has to be some reason why she is the way she is. I love Kim as well and want to see her plan to mix it up with Clint, though I really hope we get to see some scenes between Stacey and Mitch. That should be really awesome!
