I have two words to say regarding the 7/26 and 7/28 episodes of ONE LIFE TO LIVE: Hot Stuff. For months, I've been raving in the magazine and on this blog about the potential of a John and Blair hookup. Unfortunately, I was stuck waiting for a flight out of L.A. when the long-awaited love scenes aired AND the cable went out in our Digest offices, so imagine my disappointment when I discovered my recording of Monday's episode was all static! But of course, JoBlair fans had already posted the scenes in a montage on YouTube.com. Not in a long while, I think, has there been a pairing on this show with such organic, sizzling chemistry. These characters bring out a lighter side in each other, but also a totally sexy, take-me-I'm-yours side! That moment when Blair walked away from John on the rooftop, and he stood up and considered his next move for a beat, then pulled her in, was priceless. I only wish that the show hadn't cut to them in bed the next day so quickly. Maybe John just isn't a candles-and-soft music kinda guy. But that Kassie DePaiva is one lucky lady when it comes to hot leading men! (In fact, you can hear her thoughts on that in the August 26 issue of Digest, which comes out on August 19.) So JoBlair fans, if you want to see this love affair play out, let TPTB at OLTL know how you feel! As DePaiva indicated in the August 5 issue, "Whether this is a short-term event, I don't know. Fans will dictate that."
