Soap Opera news -- The latest scoop on daytime drama, from ''The City'' to ''One Life to Live''
Proving there are two sides to every story, this week we find some dark clouds among the silver linings. Good News: ABC has smartly decided not to change the name of Loving to LOVNYC. Bad News: Its new title, The City, isn’t much better. And when Morgan Fairchild joins the show, she won’t play a bitch; instead, the writers say, she’ll be a ”very complex woman.” Why hire one of TV’s top naughties and make her a nicey? Good: Although ABC won’t confirm, the rumor mill says that All My Children‘s Michael (Chris Bruno) may soon come out of the closet. A gay soap character? Great. Bad: Using his sexuality as a plot twist is a cliché. After all, being gay in the ’90s isn’t such a big deal. Good: One Life to Live has incorporated a Latino story line. Bravo. Bad: Talk about stereotypes — did they have to be a maid and gang members? What is this, West Side Story?
