Patricia Mauceri: Out on One Life to Live; Gay Storyline the Cause?

at . Comments

The Internet is buzzing over this development.

Patricia Mauceri has reportedly been fired from the recurring role of Carlotta Vega on One Life to Live. According to various sources, the star was allegedly upset over Carlotta's small role in the upcoming gay storyline between Kyle (Brett Claywell) and Fish (Scott Evans).

An insider told Daytime Confidential:

"Carlotta was supposed to have a small role in the upcoming "Kish" storyline. She objected to Carlotta's positive attitude about homosexuality, saying it conflicted with her personal beliefs."

Saundra Santiago (Guiding Light, The Sopranos) has been cast in the role. She taped her first scenes late last week.
