One Life to Live fans remember the heartbreak, drama, and romance between Kristen Alderson’s Starr Manning and the original Cole Thornhart played wonderfully by Brandon Buddy.

However, when fans last heard about Buddy it wasn’t good news. Brandon got busted for a DWI, and spent time in jail from an incident in Texas back in January of this year.  Cops allegedly found a semi-conscious Buddy at that time.  And that followed an earlier situation in the month, when police reported that Brandon was under investigation for possessing dangerous drugs, which were prescription medications.

Today, Buddy emerged on his Twitter page for the first time since December of 2014, sending out an update on his life when he tweeted: “The beautiful thing about being lost is that then you can be found!!! About 7 months ago I was breaths away from death and now I’m stronger than I’ve ever been!!! I want to thank you all for your prayers!!! Words cannot describe how sorry I am for all the broken promises, for letting you down and for the hurt that I might have caused!!!! I have been blessed with a fresh start and understand the importance of it!!!….I was rescued from the pit of my hell not to better my life but to help others! Thank you all for your love and support. Talk to you soon!!”

    I remember liking him as Cole.
    I hope this has been a wake-up for him and he has truly turned his life around. Sounds like he has. I wish him well and if he chooses to return to acting, I’d be happy to see him on my screen again.


  2. Sole_Hope says:

    I take it to heat…he knows that he reached a low point and took those actions into account. Brandon took it all to heart and let the ones that love him know that yea I had a crazy moment but I’m back and better than ever. I would to see him be acting and to have Brandon and Jristen together be wonderful.


  3. Dana says:

    Everyone deserves a second chance. Glad Brandon learned from his mistakes. Wish him a very happy and prosperous life.

    Good for him. It takes courage to emerge from the pits and go on, renewed. Best wishes!

    It sounds like he’s in a good place right now and that’s the best we can hope for. I thought he was a great actor and enjoyed his time on One Life but the most important thing for him is to be healthy and happy. This business isn’t the be all, end all. It has it’s highs that can be very rewarding but just living and authentic life can be a reward in itself. Many blessings to him on his journey…

    I hope he truly finds himself better and better as months go by. I hope he’s seeing someone and some VERY good. Each day throws something different but stick to it.
