Three stars from The OnLine Network's soaps are scheduled to appear on ABC's THE VIEW on Thursday, April 25, with co-host Gretchen Wilson.
ALL MY CHILDREN's Vincent Irizarry (David) and Thorsten Kaye (Zach) will join ONE LIFE TO LIVE legen Erika Slezak (Viki) as guests that day.
Other guests on the episode are Self Magazine's Best Beauty winners, and Carla Bruni (album, "Little French Songs").
Inside sources tell the New York Post that THE VIEW booking was made a long time ago, and that officials think "it makes great programming."
"They think it would take acrimony to a whole new level if they canceled [THE VIEW] appearance," the source says. "THE VIEW is a great platform to promote the shows . . . and Prospect Park holds no prejudice toward ABC."
Officials at THE VIEW had no comment, but insiders there say the show’s co-hosts won’t mention the ABC-Prospect Park litigation on Thursday’s show.
“ABC is excited about the launch of the [online soaps] and wants them to be successful because it has a vested [financial] interest in them,” says a source — who also revealed that OLTL cast member Tuc Watkins will appear on ABC’s daytime show THE CHEW this Monday when the two soaps make their online premieres.
Watkins will also be a guest on MARIE on Monday.
ALL MY CHILDREN and ONE LIFE TO LIVE premiere on The OnLine Network via Hulu, HuluPlus and iTunes in the United States on April 29. Canadian viewers will watch on FX Canada.
