Kish Off

On the heels of getting rid of Daphne Duplaix (Rachel) and Scott Clifton (Schuyler) comes the news that One Life to Live is letting Scott Evans (Fish) and Brett Claywell(Kyle) go. The show executive producer, Frank Valentini had this to say:

“We are concluding the story that we set out to tell with Kyle and Fish. We are very proud to have broken new ground with a same-sex couple on daytime.”

Allegedly, the network officials were concern the couple didn’t catch on with a larger audience. If this is true, it is funny because this story brought the 41-year-old soap mainstream attention that it has rarely received among the three ABC soaps.

Evans and Claywell are expected to exit in mid-April
