Nick Santino (Soap Actor) Commits Suicide After Puppy Euthanized

NICK SANTINO AND ROCCO RIP

Soap Actor Nick Santino has committed suicide on his 47th birthday according to, New York Post. Brooklyn-born Santino whose TV credits include  “The Guiding Light” and “All My Children”

Santino adopted his dog Rocco from a shelter after being  raised in an orphanage and foster homes, he began to write about his pet on Facebook, writing, “I did not rescue Rocco, Rocco rescued me.”

But in 2010, his building at 1 Lincoln Plaza announced strict new dog regulations, including a ban on pit bulls. The ban didn’t apply to pit bulls already in the building, but friends and neighbors said Santino began to be harassed.

“People were complaining about his dog,” said neighbor Kevan Cleary, 63, an adjunct professor at Brooklyn Law School. “It was open season on him.”

Rocco couldn’t ride in the main elevators and wasn’t allowed to be left in the apartment alone for more than nine hours.

Santino was then threatened with a $250 fine for having a barking dog, neighbors said.

“The dog was not a barker, but somebody complained that the dog would bark,” Cleary said.

“He felt like he was in this battle because he was the only guy in the building with a pit-bull mix,” Cleary added.

Another neighbor, Lia Pettigrew, who runs a pet-care company, said, “Everybody knows that he had been harassed by the building management.”

The building’s management refused to comment yesterday.

After months of increasing anguish, Santino had the healthy dog put to sleep Tuesday.

Neighbors said a tearful Santino brought dog treats to the building’s doorman and said: “Give these to the other dogs. Rocco is no more.”

Dog owner James Steven Grant said Santino left two rawhide bones on his doorstep and earlier was seen tearfully giving away Rocco’s fluffy bed.

“Rocco was the sweetest dog in the world. Rocco wouldn’t hurt a fly,” Grant said.

A veterinarian told Santino that Rocco was becoming aggressive — and Santino blamed it on his own depression.

He spent Tuesday in agony over what he had done to Rocco.

“He was distraught and remorseful about putting down his best friend,” Cleary said.

The last phone call he made was to a former girlfriend at 2 a.m. Wednesday. Later that day, police found his body in his bedroom. He had overdosed on pills.

Rocco has been cremated, and friends said Santino’s remains will be, too, and they will be reunited.

“One way or another, their ashes will be together forever,” Sarnoff said.

This is so sad,  Santino should have moved where he and Rocco both would have been welcomed with open arms or, give maybe find a temporary home for Rocco.  It’s a heartbreaking story on his birthday.

UPDATE: ACCORDING TO TMZ: A member of the condo board that Nick Santino said pressured him to euthanize his pit-bull — a decision that drove him to suicide — says the condo board is NOT responsible for his death.

Board member Marilyn Fireman says she is sorry that Santino is dead, but says it has nothing to do with the building’s no-pet policy. She tells the NY Post, “You just assumed that [his suicide] was a result of a board’s decision.”

Fireman did concede Santino routinely complained about the building’s anti-dog policies.

Santino’s sister tells the paper the family is holding off on funeral arrangements until the dead dog’s ashes are brought home … saying, “They’ll be buried together.”

Santino had his beloved and healthy pit-bull Rocco put to sleep on Tuesday, Santino’s 47th birthday. A few hours later, he overdosed on pills.

RIP Nick and Rocco – De De Tillman

Congratulations to actor J.R Martinez and his girlfriend Diana Gonzalez-Jones are expecting their first child next spring.

“We found out just last week it’s a girl and we are over the moon,” Martinez, 28, says. “Diana has a little baby bump now and it’s the cutest thing ever. With the holidays coming up, this is the biggest and best gift we could get.”

Martinez and Gonzalez-Jones met while working as an assistant to AMC soap’s executive producer. The two became close friends, but it wasn’t until last year that the pair decided to take their friendship to the next level.

“2011 has been full of a lot of surprises and opportunities and ultimately, a lot of blessings,” says Martinez. “Diana and I were just asking ourselves, ‘How is 2012 going to top 2011?’  Well, we have our answer!”

Actor Darnell Williams is best known as “Jesse Hubbard” on All My Children. I stumbled upon this album by Williams.  The background female voice sounds like Williams co-star actress Debbi Morgan (Angie Hubbard) who portrayed Williams wife on “All My Children. The title of the 1983 album is entitled “Pure Satisfaction.”

The song is so beautiful and it’s approx. 7 minutes. In addition to acting and singing Williams was also a dancer on the classic dance show “Soul Train.”

HOLLYWOOD – We are losing our Daytime Dramas everyday and it’s not right! My 3 favorite soaps are “Days Of Our Lives” , “One Life To Love”,  and General Hospital.”  No matter which Soap you watch, we must save them all. The only ones we have left are:

1. Days Of Our Lives

2. One Life To Live

3. All My Children

4. General Hospital

5. The Young & The Restless

6. The Bold & The Beautiful

One of these shows may not be your favorite, however, we must band together to keep our Soap Writers and Actors working. We enjoy our villains and we love when they get what’s coming to them. Reality shows, cooking shows, and others are forcing our Daytime Shows off the air.  Please sign all petitions, write the Sponsors, and let them know you’re not going to buy their products if the soaps are canceled. Please do not watch NON- Celebrity reality shows.

I met Anthony Geary and Stuart Damon, they both were so sweet, took their time laughing and talking to me. Damon made a special trip just to see me because I was talking to him on the telephone and I did not know it was Damon.

I do like or watch The Bell Family Soap, however, I did watch the show when Actress Victoria Rowell was on there. I love the character Victor Newman. Furthermore, a lot of stars have been on their favorite soap,  My Cousin Aretha Franklin is a HUGE Victor Newman.

PLEASE  SAVE  THE  REST  OF  OUR  DAYTIME DRAMAS – SOAP OPERAS.

Daytime Soap General Hospital Demolished

LOS ANGELES-  First All My Children and One Life To Live, now General Hospital can be added to the list of Soap Operas on the chopping block.  ABC is trying their d-mndest to fill Oprah’s upcoming time slot, so to do that  more news may be added and there are talks that CBS Katie Couric will be offered her own show on ABC, for that to happen  ABC will have to get rid of General Hospital.   I hate to say it but It does not look good for General Hospital. It seems ABC wants to move on without Daytime Soaps.

In the meantime let’s continue supporting the following shows on ABC and to h-ll with the rest of their programs.  For ABC to get Katie Couric they will have to pay her a HEFTY salary at Soap Opera fans Expense.

GENERAL HOSPITAL DEMOLISHED

Jada Pinkett-Smith And Will Smith On Oprah’s Final Show

Posted: May 11, 2011 @6:40pm

SAN FRANCISCO_  It seems to be the Smiths may be the ones celebrating with Oprah on her last show.  I know it’s Oprah’s show and she can do whatever she wish,  why not have the cast of “All My Children and “One Life To Live” on her final show and her biggest fan “Ellen DeGeneres”

If Oprah just want and need and have to have a Black Couple on her last show,  all she has to do is ask her best friend Gayle for help.  Hollywood has more Black married couples other than Will and Jada.   I love Will, he is a great man with a great attitude,  Jada urks/Irks the living sh-t out of  me, Yes she is super drop dead gorgeous however, I DO NOT have respect for her because,  when Will was married Jada should have stayed out of it,  the marriage may not have survived but,  we will never know.

I was given a call to work on “Pursuit Of Happyness” but,  I turned it down, I was not able to make it however,  My daughter “La Tray” was on the set with Smith and said he was so so so sweet and very good-looking.

I am certain if Oprah looks hard enough she will find another Black Hollywood Couple to be on her last show.. or, Just have Wiil on there.

PETITION LINK BY: CHRISTINA

HERE IS THE LINK  http://www.petitionspot.com/petitions/saveOLTLAMC/

  • Fans are coming out from all over the US voicing how they feel about ABC/Disney taking away All My Children and One Life To Live.  Petition and Boycotts are forming to let the network know that their fans are hurt and upset at this non-sense action and the fans are not taking it anymore.  Here are comments on what AMC and OLTL Fans have to say.

From: Mike Morelli

I hope that all our signatures will not only save One Life To Live but All My Children as well. To see either one or both of these shows go off the air is like losing 2 family members. The cast of both shows are amazingly talented, they are extremely educated more so than movie stars in movies. Movie stars make movies a few times a year. These stars make these shows everyday for 5 days a week, 12 months a year. They deserve to be treated with the highest of respect and not to be one day told that their hard work is no longer needed because their shows are going off for talk shows and food related shows. These new shows will undoubtfully have lower ratings and no other show will ever last 40+ years, I don’t care what they put on, they will never be another All My Children or One Life To Live. We will miss Tad, Greenlee, Ryan, David, Jesse, Angie, Madison, Randi and the rest of AMC, a wonderful gifted cast along with the wonderful cast of One Life To Live including but not limited to Robert S.Woods. Save these precious shows….nothing can take their place.

From: Dee

The producers need to wake up and smell the coffee. The viewers of All My Children are avid fans. They are tired of all the reality talk shows. Everyone is thirsty for an escape from the real world and the soaps allow us to do that. Now it’s being stolen from us without caring what the fans want and not even asking them. I will never watch your reality shows and hope that no one else does too. I hope all the commercials pull out too.
Wake up!!!!

From: Adrianna

leave our soaps alone I have tivoed then forever and would appreciate after a hard day being able to sit , relax and enjoy my show.

From: Delores Richmond-Ray

Please save one life to live I have watched one life to live for as long as i can remember. I am retired now and need my soaps moreso. John and natalie must get back together jessica and brody have to reunite. Vicky and clint need to get back together he is the only man can meet her standards. Todd has to get well and have a happily ever after with tea. Blair needs to find a true love maybe cristian ford and langstan.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!   If ABC/Disney cannot find space/time for Daytime Dramas All My Children and One Life To Live  well it’s time to BOYCOTT the other shows such as “Dancing With The Stars” and others.  I love DWTS however if they cancel ONE show cancel them all.

It is NOT RIGHT to bring on the new shows and kick our shows to the curb The only fair thing for we fans and Actor to do is BOYCOTT THE WHOLE D-mn network….  Write the sponsors and let them know you are NOT going to buy their products and STOP WATCHING ABC  SHOWS…

Soap Operas Ending

Topic: Daytime Dramas – Soap Operas

It’s been a nice long journey,  we let Soap Operas into our living room everyday,  we  connect with the characters. If a character was called ‘Uncle” we called him Uncle.  Many home would put on a big pot of coffee, call their friends to hurry over because it was show time!   In January,  there will be no more soaps in New York.

The chopping block has landed here in California where the rest of the soaps are being cancelled.  It saddens me to know that my view of the Soaps are not appreciated and that Disney does not give a d-mn about our feelings.

Disney will replace our long beloved soaps with other shows, it great to have those shows on the air,  it’s enough room for all of us.  I do not understand why Disney is hurting us this way.  I am sorry but,  I WILL NOT be watching the new show.

I’m from the old school when I was a kid I would watch The Edge Of Night” with my family, today my favorite Soaps are “ONE LIFE TO LIVE and “DAYS OF OUR LIVES”

We can write the sponsors of the new shows and let them know we are NOT buying their products,  for all SOAP FANS who are hurt by this,  do not give them the satisfaction of giving the new shows high ratings.   There is nothing wrong with “One Life To Live”  Young viewers are tuned in everyday because, they have a young cast as well as a mature cast.  Good bye Soaps We were there with you and for you,  your fans did not let you down.  THE END OF THE ROAD.

NOTE: TO SAVE ONE LIFE TO LIVE AND ALL MY CHILDREN, WRITE THE SPONSORS OF THESE SOAPS AND STATE THAT YOU WILL NOT BUY THEIR PRODUCTS IF THEY CONTINUE TO CANCEL THESE SOAPS.

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT ON HOW YOU FEEL AND THANKS

All My Children & One Life To Live Ends

 

All My Children
One Life To Live

I did a blog a long time ago letting everyone know that All My Children was cancelled and that One life To Live would be moving to California if that happened,  I would have love to see One life To Live move here to California instead being cancelled,  Now that both are getting axed so that Disney can put other shows in that spot.   I am a Huge fan of One Life To Live and Days Of Our Lives.  So many fans are going to be disappointed,  so many jobs will be lost.  I enjoyed watching Susan Lucci,  Debbie Morgan and Darnell Williams from All My Children.   Earlier I did a blog saying that it would be great if someone could write a show for Debbie and Darnell (angie and jessie hubbard) .

 
I guess the Bell family will be happy that all the  soaps are gone in New York, it’s strange that their shows has been so-called number 1 in the Soap Digest.  Moving on from the Bell family because I am NOT a fan of their 2 shows.  It is not the show,  it’s their up nose attitude I do not care for.  When you speak to the main stars, you will not get a “Hello” back if you don’t have a name,  Just ask Aretha Franklin what happened to her when she spoke to the star and did not get a hello back UNTIL she was told that was “Aretha Franklin”
 
This is what happens when STUPID shows are watched such as Jersey Shore,  Real housewives that not one gives a da-n about,  NON  CELEBRITY REALITY SHOWS…  Non Star are the reason REAL STARS are losing jobs.
 
I do wish each and everyone on  AMC and OLTL all the best and another job ASAP.  I also hope they will not support NON STARS REALITY SHOWS…  The Non Sense Stuff..  Host Kelly Ripa got her start on All My Children.
 
Whatever Disney put on in the place of these 2 soaps,  I will not be watching,  Disney is saying GOODBYE TO SENIORS….. and don’t give a da-n about the ones who put money in their pocket since the beginning.
THE END

SOAPnet IS HISTORY…DAYTIME DRAMAS ARE HISTORY

By:  De De Tillman

HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA

SOAPnet is coming to an end!   Fans of Daytime drama will no longer have SOAPnet that spot will be occupied by families.   All My children has moved from New York to California which was a big mistake,  now there are talks of ” One Life To Live” moving  to California.    If this is the case,  there will be no more soaps in New York.

I am going to miss SOAPnet,  I guess for those who are unable to view their favorite show will have to find them online. Maybe I should get a head start and stop watching  Daytime Drama all together due to the fact they are ending anyway.  My favorite Daytime Drama  is “Days Of Our Lives” and  “One Life To Live”

The Actors on Daytime  Drama are FAST LEARNERS , very smart and hopefully they will find work right away.  My lifetime dream was to be a Star on one of the Soap Operas then I found out how fast they had to learn those lines. YIKES lol  No problem!  I will continue Acting and writing my films.. lol  I think I could handle the “FIVE LINES OR LESS” on Daytime Drama lol

My favorite one to be on would be ONE LIFE TO LIVE…. Wow, that would be a wonderful dream…  Okay!  I have to wake up now and stop dreaming.  Why?  because,  Daytime Dramas Are Ending.

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT ON WHICH SOAP OPERA/DAYTIME DRAMA DO YOU WATCH?   WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE STAR?  THANK YOU.
