News Round-up: Bo & Nora, Crystal Hunt, Luke & Laura

NY DAILY NEWS: Bo and Nora share kiss at son's school
It's been a long, bitter run for ONE LIFE TO LIVE's Bo and Nora, but next week the former marrieds kiss and make up.

"Matthew decides he wants to go back to school," says Hillary B. Smith (Nora), referring to Bo and Nora's paralyzed young son. "Cut to Bo and Nora sitting in a car together and suddenly you realize they're sitting outside Matthew's school. They have followed his bus."

While spying on their son, they share their pain over his car accident.

"They start talking: 'I know this is ridiculous, but I would rather wait for him outside this building than go to work.' 'I feel the exact same way!' It's very emotional. These two people are finally connecting. It's a little control freaky on both their parts to be watching Matthew, but they don't want to let go."

As time goes on, they're not watching just Matthew.

"Nora has this moment where she says, 'It's all too much,'" says Smith. "Bo just lifts her chin and looks at her: 'Oh my God, what could this be?'"

A kiss - unless they are interrupted, of course.

88-year-old GUIDING LIGHT fan gets visit from Crystal Hunt
88-year-old Clearwater resident Charlotte Weintraub remembers listening to the show on the radio, and says she has been a dedicated follower of the show for close to 57 years. Thursday when she sat down to watch the show she will be visited by GL alum Chrystal Hunt. Hunt played the character Lizzie Spalding on the show for three years.

Anthony Geary on the Luke and Laura phenomenon
"First of all, you don't romanticize a rapist, which is what the character was," Geary told the Deseret News. "That would never happen. (The writers) just intended to do a tough story about a guy who was in love who lost his mind one night and attacked a girl that he was in love with," Geary said. "Nobody expected the reaction that we got. It just seemed to be a cultural signpost of some kind, I suppose. That daytime at that time became the hip thing to watch. It was all in the timing, I think. It was a phenomenon that probably wouldn't happen today."
