One Life to Live's Kassie DePaiva just sent the interwebs into a frenzy with the following Facebook update:
It's good to be Blair!!! Love both my Todds!
Now, a quick look at DePaiva's earlier posts reveals she had been reminiscing via You Tube, posting old Todd and Blair clips from when Roger Howarth was in the part. Could it simply have been a cyber stroll down memory's lane, or was Soap Opera Network on to something when they reported setsiders had informed them that Howarth was "returning to the ABC soap in the near future" and would be seen onscreen as "early as December or January"?
Soap Opera Digest columnist Carolyn Hinsey all but debunked the rumor, when she answered back with this on her Facebook page to readers asking about SON's story last month:
“Seriously, stop with the Howarth misinformation here please. He is not coming back to OLTL. Case closed.
And now, not to leave Hinsey out on a ledge by her lonesome. I too checked with my moles who said SON's story was bunk, and that Howarth had turned the show down, however One Life to Live was desperately hoping he would change his mind. So, yeah, what IS the deal with Howarth?! All I gotta say is whatever goes down, Trevor St. John better STAY Todd! Also, if Howarth does make it back on set in time to wipe snowflakes off Blair's nose, then I will lead a blog post with "SOAP OPERA NETWORK GOT IT RIGHT BITCHES!" and have Luke put it at the top of the page for one full day.
