November Sweeps Teases for World Turns and More!

Natalia Livingston and Tyler Christopher by Ron Tom/ABC

As the World Turns: And Baby Makes Five Paul (Roger Howarth) and Rosanna (Cady McClain) get hitched, but Paul may have impregnated Craig's gal Meg. Naturally, somebody will mess with the paternity test. Holden and Lily head for divorce court. Nutty moms Barbara and Iris team up for villainy. General Hospital: Murder at the Ball Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) throws a black-and-white ball climaxing in the death of a top character. The story rewinds 11 hours, then each episode moves forward one hour — à la 24 — to reveal what really happened. Who's going bye-bye? There's much buzz that it's Nik's ex-wife Emily (Emmy winner Natalia Livingston), but ABC is strictly mum. One Life to Live: What a Drag Baby snatcher Marcie (Kathy Brier) evades the law via an offbeat underground railroad that finds her performing with drag queens in Georgia and getting help from a Katrina family in New Orleans.

Grande Dame Viki Has Found Another Life to Live

Erik Slezak by Heidi Gutman/ABC

Everyone in Llanview thinks Viki Davidson is in Paris. And she is. Just not the one in France. The wealthy One Life to Live doyenne — played by six-time Emmy champ Erika Slezak — was last seen Aug. 17 emotionally frazzled and asking for a ticket on the first flight out of town. Since then, she's been sending e-mails back home, intimating she's in Gay Paree. But in the Oct. 19 cliff-hanger, it's revealed that Viki is working as a waitress at the Bonjour Diner — in Paris, Texas. "And she's loving every minute of it," Slezak says. "Her new family at the diner has no idea who she is, what she's running from or that she has money. She has none of the problems and responsibilities of home. I think the fans will enjoy this — doesn't everybody have that wish to get away from it all?" Slezak, who has a stellar track record when it comes to romantic chemistry on OLTL, is getting a new love interest — the always terrific Brian Kerwin. He joins the cast Oct. 25 as Charl... read more

"Disturbed" OLTL Star Charged in Assault; ABC Reviewing the Details

Nathaniel Marston by Yolanda Perez/ABC

One Life to Live's Nathaniel Marston (Michael) was charged with felony assault, reckless endangerment, criminal possession of a weapon and resisting arrest after allegedly attacking three men with a crate — breaking one guy's leg — in the wee hours of Sunday morning in New York City's Hell's Kitchen neighborhood. According to the New York Daily News, Marston flailed his arms and kicked at police officers as they tried to arrest him. He later was taken to Bellevue, where he was labeled "emotionally disturbed" and then released. Police say that Marston appeared to be under the influence of narcotics (possibly cocaine) at the time of the melee. Asked to comment on how this might affect Marston's status on the show, an ABC rep would only tell TVGuide.com, "We are aware of the incident and are reviewing the details."It is not known what triggered the assault, but Marston reportedly had been on edge all week and recently blew up on the OLTL set. "He's got a split personality," a... read more

Hickland Gives One Life an "Amazing" Breakdown

Catherine Hickland by Lou Rocco/ABC

Catherine Hickland, who's been wowing us with Emmy-worthy work on One Life to Live, will pull out all the stops on Sept. 24. That's when her character, Lindsay, has a mental breakdown in the courtroom after pleading guilty to the murder of Spencer (Paul Satterfield). Lindsay will then get carted off to the local nuthouse, St. Ann's, where she previously spent time after accidentally killing her ex-husband Sam."My room is always waiting," cracks Hickland, who wasn't laughing the day of her mad scene. "I felt sick when I left the studio because my emotions were so wrung out and my eyes were bulging out of my head. But it was the most amazing day of my acting career. This is my big Susan Hayward 'I Want to Live!' moment!" (And if you're too young to get the reference, too bad.)Lindsay will also reveal what she had caught creepy Spencer doing when she stabbed him 10 times.

One Life Star's Child Visits All My Children

Kassie DePaiva by Yolanda Perez/ABC

One Life to Live star Kassie DePaiva (Blair) is letting her 10-year-old son James Quentin — aka JQ — do a guest stint on All My Children. "But I'm not pimping out my child here!" she assures us with a laugh. "There were just too many positives about this to say no."JQ, who was born deaf, can hear with the aid of cochlear implants. The three-day role (airing Sept. 20, 21 and 24) ties into a plot that has Kendall (Alicia Minshew) devastated because her little son Spike has lost his hearing in an accident. "Kendall has a conversation with Jason [JQ] backstage at Erica Kane's talk show and thinks he's just an average kid," reports DePaiva. "Later she's shocked to find out he’s deaf." Mom can't tout the implants highly enough: "Without them, JQ wouldn't be able to hear a bomb go off. With them, he's just a regular kid having a wonderful life. It's miraculous." — Reporting by Michael Logan read more
