Two women familiar to soap audiences are at the epicenter of this lawsuit first reported by The Wrap! It involves former One Life to Live and Days of our Lives star, Holly Gagnier and former The Bold and the Beautiful star Hunter Tylo (who has seen her share of legal woes in the past).

According to The Wrap, “Gagnier has been slapped with a lawsuit by 80-year-old Patricia McCoy, who claims to have been the actress’ ballet teacher for 15 years, from the time Gagnier was six years old.  In her complaint, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court last week, McCoy claims that Gagnier tried to sabotage a potential movie deal between McCoy and Hunter Tylo, based on McCoy’s 1999 book “The American Dream Has Put Our Souls to Sleep.”   The book, according to the complaint, chronicles McCoy’s professional relationship with Lorene Yarnell of Shields and Yarnell, who McCoy claims to have helped make the transition from mime to a ballerina.

McCoy claims that she struck up a deal with Tylo for a script based on the book, with Tylo starring in the potential movie. However, according to the suit, in September Gagner called Tylo’s manager and trash-talked McCoy in an effort to spoil the agreement.

According to the suit, also “Gagnier told Tylo’s manager that McCoy has a history of  ‘luring celebrities into contracts and setting them up with the intention of suing them for breach of contract,” and that McCoy was mentally and verbally abusive to Gagnier.   Gagnier also allegedly told Tylo’s manager that McCoy’s training creates a “cult” atmosphere that’s damaged many of her students.  And that McCoy “is promiscuous with men as well as a lesbian.”

    Don’t know about the legal drama, but I remember Holly Gagnier’s Cassie. I prefer her to the Laura Bonarrigo-played Cassie, who’s remembered by most. She was a smokin’ firecracker, kind of a Blair precursor. Those Cramer women, lol.

    Drama seems to follow Hunter Tylo. A lawsuit isn’t the solution to every problem!

    I thought Holly Gagnier fell off the face of the earth. I remember her on DOOL as Ivy.

    Some old lady trying to sell a script and a washed up fired actress trying to get publicity for a movie project …Tylo and Macoy might have some luck with their script at the Comedy Store, but the court house, I don’t think so.
