One love to scam on 'One Life to Live'
By CAROLYN HINSEY
David proposes to Alex this week on "One Life to Live," but love has nothing to do with it.
"Just a couple of idiots trying to pull the wool over each other's eyes," says Tuc Watkins, who plays the gold-digging groom.
Unbeknownst to David, he is Asa Buchanan's son and is therefore entitled to a piece of his fortune. Alex overheard this, which explains her sudden attraction to David and the cockamamie plan to marry him. "David is working at Dreamland, which is a high-priced rehab center to the stars," says Watkins. "He figures he will meet some rich starlet and after a couple massages, she will invite him to live in her pool house."
But Alex gets there first.
"She has checked in due to a sex addiction, which really turns him on," adds Watkins. "Also, David remembers she is Asa's ex and has had several other exes, so she must have tons of dough. He turns on the charm and convinces her that he can treat her, even though he has absolutely no qualifications."
The proposal isn't exactly poetic.
"He says, 'You really ought to marry me because I'm the only guy who will stand by you while you're enduring this horribly embarrassing addiction.' She's easily won over because she has ulterior motives. She knows David is the heir to a bunch of dough. David doesn't know that, though."
"I think David's going to be the last person to know that," says Watkins. As for the wedding, "They get married in matching white track-suits at Dreamland. It's obviously a very classy ceremony. They make the vows up as they go along. David's have mostly to do with, 'As long as she stays healthy, I won't take her money. 'I don't even think Alex says 'I do,' but they endup with rings on their fingers when they go to Texas."
They head to Texas for the reading of Asa's will, where Alex hopes they'll come into some money. "They never even consummate the marriage," chortles Watkins. "They are both so eager to get money out of each other they forget to lie down together. I believe this will be the only marriage in 'One Life to Live' history that doesn't lead to a sex scene
