Last week I was fortunate enough to snag a ticket to Tuc Watkins's (David, OLTL) new play, White's Lies, at Manhattan's New World Stages. It was such a treat to see one of my favorite OLTL actors in a completely different medium (and only four rows away).

I hope everyone is tuning in to OLTL this week because today and tomorrow are the last days of its special musical, Starr X'd Lovers. Friday it got off to a great start with all the girls at Foxy Roxy's singing The Go-Go's classic "Our Lips Are Sealed," and Starr, Langston and Danielle singing Pat Benatar's "We Belong." Well, today's episode really kicked things up a notch, and not just with its rousing opening number, "I Gotta Feeling" by Black Eyed Peas, but with any number of major story point-turning moments.

I gotta feeling ... this year's Llanview High musical is going to be off the hook! I just got back from a special preview of Starr X'd Lovers at the OLTL studio and the resounding reaction from actors, press, crew, etc. was "Amazing!" Executive Producer Frank Valentini and Co. got a standing ovation, and we didn't even see every musical number from this three-day event, which begins on May 14.

Tonight is one of the "final three" episodes of ONE TREE HILL, a show that is dangerously teetering on the edge of cancellation (word is it's up against LIFE UNEXPECTED for a time slot next season).

Since the start of what looked like a John and Natalie reunion on ONE LIFE TO LIVE, I've maintained that a) it's too soon for Natalie to be moving on from losing her husband, Jared (sniff, sniff), and b) John's relationship with Marty is so ho-hum that creating a triangle with Natalie won't really have an impact. I still stand by those two arguments, yet I found myself moved by Natalie's unexpected confession on Friday's episode.

Although OLTL's Trevor St. John did not establish the role of Todd and his bizarre rivalry/obsession with Marty that had me riveted in the 1990s, his chemistry with Susan Haskell has drawn me in since her 2008 return. After chewing Marty out for her own son's behavior in today's episode, he suddenly began to act like her patient, asking how he could possibly win Danielle's affection.

I've been meaning to blog about this for some time but wanted to wait until it played out on-screen, which has only further reinforced my feeling that Alexis's affair with the mayor on GENERAL HOSPITAL is a bunch of poppycock.

Oh, yes it's Ladies' Night! And the feelin's right. Oh, yes it's Ladies' Night ... in Springfield! I loved the twist that Doris is a lesbian on today's GUIDING LIGHT.

Ladies and gentlemen, may I introduce you to Ms. Rachael Yamagata? This talented singler/songwriter/pianist is the latest in a string of top performers to grace the stage of an OLTL nightspot and I had the pleasure of watching her tape yesterday! She may not be sharing the spotlight with Beyoncé but you're sure to recognize her songs from shows like ONE TREE HILL and THE O.C. and films such as Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. OLTL magic man Paul S. Glass, who's responsible for luring amazing acts to Llanview, revealed that her performance will accompany a moving montage at the end of the April 2 episode.

Sunday morning in Brooklyn went something like this: work out, go to church, visit the bakery, cry with Genie Francis. Yes, I DVR'd Saturday night's Hallmark premiere of THE NOTE II: TAKING A CHANCE ON LOVE, the follow-up to the 2007 tearjerker, THE NOTE, also starring Francis. This is seriously the sweetest series.
