An Open Letter to Frank Valentini



Dear Mr. Valentini,

I love One Life to Live, I really do. I haven't written much recently about your show on Daytime Confidential because there is so much going on at any given time that it can be hard to get a handle on which areas to focus. This is not a bad thing. You and your head writer Ron Carlivati have fashioned a fast moving, entertaining, and thoroughly engaging hour of daytime television that has catapulted it to the top of ABC's afternoon lineup. Bravo! There is far more good than bad on OLTL and in this case, no news can usually be good news. There is, however, one little thing that bugs me and it occurs to me that you — and only you — can fix it:

For the love of Harding Lemay, please put a merciful end to the disastrously choreographed fights between Gigi & Stacy!

Voight Responds to Roseanne Barr’s Blog



Angelina Jolie's father, Jon Voight, is taking on Roseanne Barr after she bashed brangelina on her blog calling Jolie the "evil spawn" of Jon Voight and Brad Pitt “vacuous” after Jolie said she likes McCain but hasn't decided which Presidential candidate to support.

In the letter to Extra Voight reponded that  "... My allegiance to Senator McCain becomes stronger with any assault that tries to deter my loyalty to him. I can only pray that good people see her for what she is (sick of mind)."
