Gary talks about Brad's propensity to get emotional and mourns the demise of 'One Life to Live.'

on Jan 9, 20120

Next week we go to the house where I grew up in Queens for Sunday dinner (always at 2) with both families, really looking forward to seeing that one. Let me know what you think, OK? But please keep it positive, I'm also sensitive.

And on a sad note, for any of you out there that watch soaps, you might have heard me mention I was watching One Life to Live on last week's episode. Well, I've been watching One Life almost my entire life and this Friday it goes off the air for good. I'm totally bummed. (When I wrote for Will & Grace I made Karen a One Life to Live fan and on Family Guy Stewie has referenced watching it.) I don't know what I'm going to do without Viki! And for those of you who haven't seen Judith Light as Karen Wolek admit to being a prostitute on the stand or Erika Slezak struggling with Viki's many alters or fighting with Dorian over the decades you don't know what you missed! So this is my little salute to One Life to Live -- you will be missed!

Best,

Gary

I absolutely love you and Brad! I have really enjoyed the season so far. I too have been mourning OLTL! I still have the last weeks episodes on my dvr! If you haven't you should really look into all the groups on Facebook as well as Silas Kain at delibernation trying to help save the genre as well as get OLTL back on the air.

I went to IMDB to see which episodes of "Will & Grace" you had written and they were some of my favorites. How talented you are! I must admit, my entire family has the propensity to quote our favorite movie and television lines and any given time. Our definition of an appropriate time would be "any time that it's funny". I have to say it's wonderful to put a face to the writer of some of our favorites. I sincerely pray, however, it was not your idea for the "Mom..Mommy...Mom...Mommy...Mommeeee....", that my teenagers have been torturing me with for, what, 10 years now? I am looking forward to seeing your family. Good luck with the show and a sincere thank you for all of the entertainment you have provided us over the years. Job well done.

I have to agree with you. I remember being in high school and watching Judith Light's scene on the witness stand when she confesses to being a prostitute. (For that scumbag pimp Marco). It gave me chills.

So long to One Life

I agree with the other pots, you and Brad are adorable together! I am also a huge OLTL fan, and have been watching since I was a child - broken hearted!

I look forward to next weeks episode. Boy you are putting it all on the line and with family support. I agree, America will miss the soap opera. I was an AMC fan and I so miss it. Real acting talent is being taken over by comic 3D animation.

I know you hear this over and over again, but Will and Grace was such a wonderfully well written show. During the holidays, I watched a few episodes and found myself laughing out loud all over again. I miss it! You are very talented and thanks for opening your private life with Brad to all of us! Of course, I would be interested in seeing how writers work! (not like 30 Rock!)

You two are so great together. Better than any straight couples I know with all their pathologies like Kim the gold digger, Phaedra dragging poor Apollo into the funeral business, poor lout. You two are the best. Refreshing. Better than Zoe dragging her husband through hell with all the underlying hostility even over who holds the baby. You could teach straight couples alot. Or maybe straight couples are a bad idea. I worry though that the fashion business for anyone is too much of a hard grind.
