Erika Slezak is also MY favorite actress. I was glad to see your interview with her. Some reporter(I suppose) was asking her question who I don’t think even knew anything about her. I love your articles & interviews. Erika was so beautiful that night as always a lady. Thank you again Michael for bring this wonderful lady to us on screen.

Susan m, There are a lot of general hospital fans saying that the One life to live cross overs aren’t working out , I like them, I think they are fitting in good, Did you hear the new opening to general hospital? it goes so fast I heard 12 second of it, I can’t make a comment till I hear more.

I think the OLTL cross overs are fitting in okay. I don’t understand why some gh fans are saying that..I don’t see what the problem is..New opening does go very quick..I like the old opening best….When you hear the old opening you know GH is on without a doubt…

Would love to have seen you interview Erika after the show to get her take on Lucci and the OLTL tribute. Michael, you should do ALL of your interviews dressed like this. You look so much more professional.

You know what david? She is such a wonderful good person that I don’t think she has a mean bone in her body, I bet she would give Ericka Kane a pass, I just don’t think that Ericka Slezak would say anything, shes that nice and sweet, I miss her so much. Susan Lucci ruined any changes of us seeing how Ericka Slezak has been and because of susan lucci’s self centered behavior the other night we all got robbed. I would love for her do a interview just to see how she is doing.

Can’t find the right site but anyway some soap fan said OLTL characters aren’t fitting in on GH….I disagree…That simply isn’t true….That’s what I think….I think they are doing great………I miss OLTL and I enjoy seeing them on GH……………..

What a class act. Erika was robbed of her 7th emmy and OLTL should have been named best daytime drama.

Michael,
After welcoming “One Life to Live into my home since the very first episode, I feel the space that was left after the show’s cancellation everyday. I miss it terribly, as well as all the characters and especially, Erika Slezak’s “Victoria Lord Buchanan. ”

Every time I’ve heard the name “Victoria Lord” mentioned on General Hospital recently it causes me to hope more and more that we will see her on General Hospital soon.

B&B’s Kimberlin Brown and Tanner Novlan Talk on Sheila’s Motherly Love for Finn and the Next Move Against Steffy & the Forresters

The Bold and the Beautiful’s mother/son duo of Kimberlin Brown (Sheila Carter) and Tanner Novlan (Finn) chatted with Michael Fairman during a virtual interview for the Michael Fairman Channel; about the return of soap super-villain Sheila to the CBS daytime drama series, and its impact on newlyweds Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and Finn, and their newborn son, Hayes.

When daytime fans learned that Brown was returning to B&B, they were very excited to see back on-screen as one of the greats, who’s character has caused so much trouble for the residents in both Genoa City 0n The Young and the Restless and in Los Angeles on The Bold and the Beautiful with her various crimes, deceptions, and plots over the years.

However, this time, viewers learned that Sheila is the biological mother of good doctor, Finn and her entrance into the story (at the wedding reception for Finn and Steffy) threw disruption into the lives of the Forresters and for her the son she never-got-to-know that she gave up at birth.

During this entertaining and candid conversation, Kimberlin and Tanner reveal many behind-the-scenes tidbits including: what went down during the  taping of the scenes where Finn learns Sheila is his mother as she steps out of the shadows, the confrontation at the wedding when the Forresters learned this shocking bit of intel, how Sheila plans to continue to manipulate and weave her way into her grandson and son’s life, and how she sees her vendetta with Steffy as an off-shoot of her vendetta with her grandmother, the late Stephanie Forrester (Susan Flannery).

In addition, Tanner weighs-in on Finn’s apparent ignorance of Paris’ (Diamond White) growing attraction to him, how that might trigger a Sheila/Paris partnership, or the possibility that Sheila does the unthinkable and somehow gets Steffy hooked back on opioids, or makes it looks like she has. There were many theories bantered about, and the actors share their speculative thoughts.
