“No more drama” in Llanview? Not!


As previously scooped in Soapdom’s Suds Buzz, Grammy Award-winning recording artist Mary J. Blige will appear on ABC Daytime's "One Life to Live" on FRIDAY, JULY 28 (taping Thursday, June 22 at the "OLTL" studio in New York City). She will perform two of her hits from her double-platinum album, "The Breakthrough."

"The cast and I, being huge fans of Mary J. Blige's tremendous talent, are thrilled that she will be appearing on 'One Life to Live,'" says executive producer Frank Valentini. "Music has always been a pivotal part of 'One Life to Live,' and Mary J. Blige helps us continue the tradition."

On "One Life to Live," Blige will appear as herself and perform at Antonio Vega's (Kamar de los Reyes) club, Capricorn. "One Life to Live" has a history of showcasing music on the show, including such artists as Jeannie Ortega, Lifehouse, Tito Puente Jr., Simply Red, Chris Botti and Erykah Badu.

Released on December 20, 2005, "The Breakthrough" soared to the top of the Billboard chart to debut at #1, scanning 727,163 units and earning the honor of being the best opening week for a solo R&B female artist in SoundScan history. Blige is set to kick off her summer tour, "The Breakthrough Experience," on July 1 in Houston, TX. Her six prior platinum and multi-platinum hit albums include such classics as "No More Drama," "What's the 411," "My Life," "Share My World," "Mary" and "Love & Life."

Past Blast

Days of our Lives' Brendan Michael Coughlin enjoys playing Tad and being a new dad

When asked what it is like to play Tad on Days of our Lives, Brendan Michael Coughlin shouts exuberantly, "I love him!"

Coughlin has been playing the so-called behind the scenes instigator for the last two years. He has no family that is ever mentioned on the show, but he is there. He came on as Will's (Guy Wilson) best friend, but when it became clear that Will was gay, Tad did everything but bash and degrade and mock him. The irony? At the recent wedding of Will and Sonny (Freddie Smith), he was best man. Go figure!

"I know. It has been a wild ride. I did a whole turn around, and I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed doing the wedding. I really enjoy playing this guy. He is a total goof-off. He means well, but is always on the wrong side of the rope." Coughlin said. "I have grown to love him. He is comic relief. I always had dramatic roles, so this is fun."
