Hillary B. Smith: I am so sad for the fans

Emmy winner Hillary B. Smith took to Twitter this week after Prospect Park released a statement saying the company was suspending efforts to bring ONE LIFE TO LIVE and ALL MY CHILDREN to the web.

I want to b careful what I say right now. I am so sad for the fans. I am so sad for all of us who were robbed of the 7 months to plan. I wish there had been more communication. This was not about AFTRA! The guilds and unions were talking. The endings were changed to accomodate the move. I wish they would have left us alone. So sad!!!! Endings were changed! So unprofessional. You will al still be satisfied. The ride to the end is still worth it!!! I promise. Meanwhile, LONG LIVE VENICE!!! I still feel that ABC will regret this decision. I love you all! I m sorry! But the show is worth the ride. Enjoy through January!!!
Smith's VENICE premiered on Wednesday just hours after the Prospect Park announcement. She won the 2011 Indie Soap Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress for the role. She also stars on web hit FUMBLING THRU THE PIECES.

  2. Hillary, This is devastating news for us fans who thought our soap had been saved!!!! I have watched OLTL since I was a teenager from the very day the show debuted. I still cannot imagine my days without you all. I am truly heart-broken and sick to lose OLTL!! I do NOT understand how ABC can do this to people who have kept this show going for over 40 years!!!! NO show they replace OLTL with is going to have that longevety. It is such a slap in the face to the fans and all the cast and crew. I will watch to the very end and cherish every last moment with you all. Best of luck to everyone involved. We will never forget the joy you brought to our days. Love to all the cast. Thanks so much for the memories!!
