'One Life to Live' Dumps the Gay Love Story

one_life_to_live_abc_oliver_and_kyleIn January, things weren't looking good for ABC's 'One Life to Live.' It wasn't just that 'All My Children' was getting the move to Los Angeles, leaving 'OLTL' the lone ABC soap in New York. It wasn't just the delay in going to HD, nor the flagging ratings.

It was the stagnant story telling. The emphasis on gay marriage in Dorian's mayoral campaign was over the top, as was the romance of closeted cop Oliver Fish and ex-lab tech Kyle. The Kyle-Fish relationship developed a fan base. The proponents of 'Kish' were all for the twosome become like Cam and Mitchell on 'Modern Family,' a gay married couple with broad-based appeal.

That's not to be. This past week, 'One Life to Live' dumped the duo. Actors Brett Claywell and Scott Evans were let go because their characters are being written off the show, according to the New York Post.

Boston Legal's Julie Bowen has a boy

Julie BowenI usually don't do posts about TV stars getting married or having babies, because, let's face it: it's no big accomplishment. Millions of people get married and pop out kids every day of the year; just because a celebrity did it shouldn't be considered news. But I want to mention Julie Bowen's blessed event for two reasons: a) I've enjoyed watching her since her Ed days, and b) I wanted to highlight how the Boston Legal star had her son, which is the first for Bowen and her husband Scott Phillips. They named the boy Oliver McLanahan Phillips.

As we saw in the most recent BL episode, Bowen was pretty far along, but still a few months away. Ever the trouper, she decided to work all the way up to her big day; her water broke while she was filming a scene (let's hope they include that part when the episode airs next month). So either Julie was really healthy all the way through her pregnancy or just slightly crazy. Either way, it'll be interesting to see how she changes as the weeks go on.
