NEWS: John-Paul Lavoisier, Darius McCrary, Morrison, Cumming

John-Paul Lavoisier Clarifies Statement on ONE LIFE TO LIVE's cancellation
"The point wasn't to make anybody mad or anybody happy. The point was for everyone to interpret my comments in any way they want to, at least the last part of the quote. If you're not happy with my quote, think of it sarcastically. And if you're happy with my quote, take it literally. It's a neutral quote that can be taken in either way. But the rest of the quote can be taken literally. Farah [Fath, Gigi] and I are going to L.A. We are going to pound the pavement and I was very blessed to have worked on the final nine years and seven months of a long-running, great show that has a great family. As an actor, it gave me fun stuff to do. The first day that Brian Frons became president of ABC, he could have fired me right off the bat. I spent every day working for ABC under the possibility that Brian could have fired me. So I do thank Brian for not firing me during his reign. I thank him every day that he never made the decision to fire me and I do thank him for bringing on Farah. But everyone needs to understand that you can't bite the hand that feeds you. There is a lot of world left to live and a lot of jobs to still be had and you never know who's going to become the president of what. I don't want to burn future bridges with the professional people who will someday hire me for other jobs."

  1. JP... kinda douche bag clarification. Have the guts to say what you mean and mean what you say. Otherwise, don't issue statements followed by clarifications.
