JWoww is ready to dive right into a myriad of soap stereotypes and cliches via her new job on One Life to Live. The reality TV starlet was interviewed by E! on the red carpet for Logo's NewNowNext Awards. Here's a snippet of what she had to say about being cast as bartender Nikki:
"I originally found it pretty hysterical and I was like, ‘Oh my god, it would be awful,'" JWoww, who plays a bartender on the show, told us this weekend at the Logo NewNowNext Awards in Hollywood. "But now I'm madly in love with it. I'm totally obsessed. I want to live, die, get killed, come back as my evil sister." READ MORE
Okay, okay, I will be the first to admit it. I was more than a little cynical when I first learned Prospect Park was making a second stab at bringing back All My Children and One Life to Live. There, are you happy?
With only a matter of days left before the soaps return on April 29, I have to say, I am hella impressed with what I'm seeing so far! Today, TOLN revealed a trailer video for the new season of All My Children. Although I will argue anyone down that it was only my pollen allergies, a couple of tears were a' shed.
My DARLING, BIANCA (Eden Riegel)!!!!! ANGIE (Debbi Morgan)!!! DIXIE (Cady McClain)!!! PETEY (Rob Wilson)!!! PETEY (Rob Wilson)!!! Did I mention, PETEY (Rob Wilson)??? Watch the video after the jump.
Since news of Prospect Park's plans to reboot One Life to Live and All My Children first began to trickle out, one big question has remained — how would our neighbors to the North watch the sudsers? That question has finally been answered. FX Canada has signed an exclusive, North American deal to air the resurrected soaps!
That's right Canucks, you will be able to catch every scandalous hook-up and over-the-top return from the dead when OLTL and AMC return on April 29. AMC will air every day at noon EST/2 pm PST on the cabler. OLTL will air at 12:30/2:30 PST.
“All My Children and One Life to Live are a unique addition to FX Canada’s slate of provocative and critically-acclaimed dramas,” said Scott Moore, President of Broadcast, Rogers Media. “As the only television channel in North America broadcasting these new series, FX Canada continues its commitment to deliver exclusive, premium content to its viewers.” READ MORE

Soap opera's grandest dame is ready for her second act. I recently caught up with six-time Daytime Emmy winner Erika Slezak to discuss the return of her beloved One Life to Live. How is television's—and soon-to-be the Internet's—Viki Lord dealing with her second life to live? After Prospect Park's first attempt to reboot the sudser fell through, what made Slezak sign on for a second time?
She answers those questions, as well as providing insight into what her legendary father, Walter Slezak, would make of soaps on the web. Slezak also goes into detail on why she feels Brian Frons isn't responsible for OLTL and All My Children being cancelled by Disney-ABC.
Daytime Confidential: How does it feel to slip back into the role of Viki?
Erika Slezak: I’m very excited. After the whole thing kind of fell apart almost two years ago, we thought, “Oh boy, what a shame.” Because it was such a good idea. When it came back, I thought, “You know when you die on daytime, you don’t really die!” You can always come back, even without a head! So why can’t that be true for the show? Even though someone said to me, “The show’s dead.” I said, “You’re never really dead in daytime. Ever!” So it turns out we’re not dead. READ MORE
