OLTL's Kassie DePaiva Speaks Out About PP Deal

On the heels of Prospect Park's November 23 announcement that the company is suspending its plans for the online relaunch of OLTL and AMC, Kassie DePaiva (Blair) has issued a statement to fans on her Web site to set the record straight about what she knows, from the show's ABC cancellation in April to the latest turn of events. "Words just don't express how sad I am at hearing that Prospect Park has dropped the deal to move forward with ONE LIFE. I think what upsets me the most is how this whole deal has been handled from the get go," she wrote. "The last two weeks have been emotional for me…. My hat goes off to [Head Writer] Ron Carlivati…. He has written really powerful stuff and I think the fans are going to love it. I especially want to thank [Executive Producer] Frank Valentini who has fought the hardest to make the transition happen. He has been amazing and I want you fans to know how hard he worked to continue giving you the show you deserve. It's been the best 18 years of my life. I hope you will continue to watch ONE LIFE until the bitter sweet end." DePaiva went on to say that she and Valentini heard about the shocking PP news via a "media report."
