Blind Items: Major ABC soap star is considering departing her show; Have we seen the last of OLTL's Florencia Lozano?

Soap Opera Source has learned that a MAJOR ABC soap star is considering departing her show once her contract expires. "She's tired," says a source. "Once her contract is up that's it. There are no plans to re-sign at this time."

In the days of shrinking revenue and budget cuts, this departure could save the show a lot of money, but at the same time, create a large hole in the canvas that would be very noticeable.

How Dead Is Dead?

Think you've seen the last of One Life to Live's Florencia Lozano (Tea)? According to a setside source, the actress was still taping scenes as recently as last week. Is OLTL pulling a switcheroo?

Blind Items

What west coast actress is about to get a pink slip? Sources say the actress' attitude is to blame for her impending exit. "She's obnoxious to work with," says one source.

What show continues to reach out to one of its former stars, even though said he is working on a rival soap? Sources say they continue to try to coax him into returning, but he's made it clear he has no desire of going back. A source close to the actor says, "They should have treated him better when he was there."

Lucci, Slezak, Strasser.

I cant think of anyone "major" over on GH thats been there a long time. Do they work Kelly Monaco alot? I could see in their warped priorities her leaving fucking them over.

I think it's Strasser, but I'm just guessing.

I don't think it's Strasser. Last year, she was really passionate about staying on the show, saying they'd have to carry her off the set or something like that. I don't think that kind of attitude would change so drastically in just one year.

My bet is on Lucci or Slezak.

Slezak leaving would be a wet dream for Frons.

Wow. That's a little surprising. Maybe it's Lucci, she did pretty good in Primtetime.

The fall is supposed to have a MAJOR story for Slezak, Strasser and Zimmer so I'm thinking no to that.

I think Lucci would have bailed during the move, if it was her.

She might be missing New York now and wanting to get back, though....

She was pretty close to quitting when she moved to LA. Who knows? IMO the show would suck without Lucci.

If it's Lucci then AMC won't be far behind. I can't see them lasting without her.

The sad thing is the show easily could if they centered the show on the right people and brought back someone like Taylor Miller (Nina Warner) to fill the void.

AMC would be fine without Lucci, the show has been balanced and cohesive lately. I really don't see what would be the big deal about her leaving, other than the fact that she is Susan Lucci, and has been there since Day One. Quality wise, AMC wouldn't suffer at all.

Lucci is AMC's star. I don't think they'll do as well without her. I only watch for Erica and her family. Lucci is the heart of AMC, she's been there since Day one. We'll at least IMO.

SL didn't move out to LA did she? I thought I remembered reading something about she tapes a few days a week and then goes home to NYC for the rest of the time. IF that's so, that has to be hard on a person period. If the blind item is about her, I could understand her being so tired.

One more question, are all of the blind items about just ABC soaps? I wasn't for sure about that.
