CourtesyFOX

Get ready One Life to Live fans, tonight on Monday April 16th at 9PMEST/8PMCST, six-time Daytime Emmy winner, Erika Slezak (Viki, OLTL) makes her return to television in a guest-starring role on Fox’s new medical drama, The Resident.

The Resident also stars some very familiar soapy faces including: Emily Van Camp (Ex-Emily, Revenge) and Melina Kanakaredes (Ex-Eleni, GL). Tonight’s episode is entitled “Haunted” and in the log lines for it, the series relates: “Conrad is hit by a bike and badly sprains his ankle, but works through it when he takes the case of his old medical professor, who is hallucinating visions of her old patients. Devon is tasked with admitting Conrad, who refuses any sort of treatment. Nic tries to navigate her emotions while mourning the loss of a patient and Bell operates on a foreign dignitary with unforeseen complications. Meanwhile, Lane and Bell’s relationship grows closer.”

Erika plays Dr. Eileen Jacoby.

So glad you posted this. I had not even heard of the show. It was so great to see Erika Slezak and be reminded why she won so many emmys. I would highly recommend watching this episode, and I am going to start watching regularly. I would love to see Erika as a series regular-and if not on this show, then another. Made me cry.

Matt Czurchy also enjoy-used to watch him on the good wife, and Emily Van Camp-used to watch her on Brothers and Sisters-which was a pretty good show and abruptly cancelled. Melina- I remember her from another show-not GL-what was that? Anyway, Erika looks beautiful and can still act with the best of them.

Loved Matt on the Gilmore Girls. Also watched Emily on Brothers and Sisters; great show. She then went on to star in Revenge…a complete departure from B&S. Another great show.

Couldn’t get into The Resident from this one episode. I checked it out only only to see Erika. Loved seeing her but won’t be tuning back in. Shame because I love the other actors mentioned but it just didnt hook me.

You and I are thinking the same, Phyllis. I love the show!

Hello, Boop. I want to love the show. I enjoy medical dramas. Tuned in for Erika-was mostly focused on her-will tune in again as great cast-I need to figure out who is whom and so forth-how long has it been on? Maybe I can find the other episodes and catch up.
Larkin-thanks! I loved Providence.

One show I will not be tuning back into-and found it demeaning, depressing, and demoralizing- Are you smarter than a 5th grader? Apparantly not. Who knew the tongue was an organ? Have you ever heard of a tongue transplant-if you have-please-keep it to yourself. Just kidding. None of my answers made the cut. Thank goodness my final answer-click click on the remote-solved the problem. Wow. that is still blowing what obviously little brain matter I have left. Perhaps I should brave another episode or two to see if any rehab is possible. Brutal.

Wow! Melina not the sweet good girl anymore-at all! Love it. Love the high-level machinations and back-stabbing. Can’t wait for next week.

I’m glad she’s finally getting some work since she’s one of the best and always gave nuanced performances on OLTL.

It was so great to see Erika Slezak again. As usual, she gave an excellent performance. I hope the cashing people of other shows wise up and use her more often. She is a natural.

Everyday my heart aches for Viki and our beloved One Life to Live!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was wonderful to see her again. there was a nice little blip when the doctor said she had worked for “40 years.” Most likely a wink to OLTL because she was there for almost 41 years. I’ve been waiting for this episode for several weeks so it made my night.
I hope maybe she’l be back on for an episode nest season. or on something else. She’s still a good actress.

It was SO good to see her in a new episode of something. This was such an imaginative role and I know she enjoyed performing it. I sure enjoyed watching. Now, her character just needs to come back to the hospital to teach and share her immense knowledge. Then we will get to see her on a more regular basis. She is so missed.

Heather Locklear Sent To Hospital For Psych Evaluation After Threatening To Harm Herself

Former Dynasty and Melrose Place star, Heather Locklear is back in the news Monday morning with another troubling report from TMZ.com.

Reportedly, Locklear was hospitalized in Thousand Oaks, California on Sunday.  Her mother called 911 claiming the actress was threatening to kill herself, and acting erratically.

In the dispatch audio call that was made public by TMZ, it seemed that her mother claimed that Locklear was “agitated and violent.”  She also added that Heather was, “trying to hurt herself and looking for a gun to shoot herself, even though she does not have access to any weapons.”

Both the Ventura Country Fire and Sheriff’s Department were dispatched to Locklear’s home.

A source close to Heather reportedly said that the actress was agitated during the day, so her parents went over to her home to check on her. According to the report, that’s when Locklear got violent, choking her mother and hitting her father.

Locklear was arrested months ago on a felony charge for domestic violence and three counts of misdemeanor battery on a police officer following a domestic dispute with her boyfriend.  The domestic abuse charges were dropped in March. Locklear was in rehab in April, while her attorneys pleaded not guilty to battery on her behalf.

Back in 2008, there was a report that Locklear was also suicidal. The Melrose Place and Dynasty star has had a history of substance abuse.

So, what do you think of the latest troubles for Heather? Comment below.

Apple Inks Multi-Year Partnership Deal With Oprah Winfrey For New Original Content

In an effort to go head to head with streaming giants Netflix and Amazon, Apple announced today a marquee signing that will give it a leg up on the competition. In an effort to ramp up its original content portfolio, they have signed multi-Emmy winner, Oprah Winfrey.

Apple said the new deal will not affect Winfrey’s contract with OWN, the television network she launched in 2011. Oprah has a contract there till 2025.

In a statement, Apple related: “Together, Winfrey and Apple will create original programs that embrace her incomparable ability to connect with audiences around the world. Winfrey’s projects will be released as part of a lineup of original content from Apple.”

As for how the deal will utilize the many talents of Oprah, it is expected she will have an on-camera role as a host and interviewer, and could be in some of her projects.

For Apple landing this deal with Winfrey and other big names will keep audiences checking out content on their iPhones and Apple TV, and potentially bring in more consumers who want to see the exclusive content from O.

Reports say that new deal with Oprah will include everything but the kitchen sink from: film, applications, books, and content that can be easily distributed across all Apple platforms.  Winfrey’s “Harpo Films” will apparently own any and all content produced under the Apple partnership.

So, what do you think of new Oprah content and programs coming to Apple? Comment below.
