Why don’t they bring her to Y&R make her Katherine’s long list sister let’s get this show a kick in the ass and she is the perfect actress to do it !! Offer her the moon whatever it takes

She loves daytime she is a great actress my gosh what are you people waiting for? You are drowning here let’s get with the program

I totally agree. I think part of the problem is that all of daytime now shoots in LA and I believe she stated in an interview awhile back that she does not want to live in LA or commute there for an extended period of time. Believe me, I would love nothing more than to see her on my screen on a regular basis again. I miss OLTL to this day.

You are correct Aaron. From what I’ve read, Erika’s home is in Connecticut and she has no desire to leave the east coast. Not a day goes by that I don’t miss our beloved One Life to Live.

I know commuting is horrible but we can dream can’t we? I just miss her and many others

Me too !

What a fabulous idea?!

I can’t wait to watch. I wish they would pair her with Tom.

I agree, this is my favorite show on TV. I keep a bunch recorded and watch them back to back when I can’t find anything else good. I think Ms.Slezak’s last time on B.B was featured with Gramps, Frank’s dad. Can’t wait to see this appearance.

This is super news. It’s always wonderful to see Erika Slezak in action. I’ll definitely tune in to see her. I’ve hoped that she would make another visit to the Fox drama, The Resident. A few years ago, she was wonderful as a former medical school professor with a newly diagnosed, progressively deteriorating medical condition. I’m not a regular viewer of that show, but I’d love to see Erika as that character again. Let’s face it, I’d love to see Erika Slezak in just about anything.

I too, wish Ms. Slezak would slide into a Young and Restless role worthy of her talent. Josh Griffith would need to be given his walking papers first. I don’t trust is headwriting abilites in the least.

Love her character looking forward to seeing her again

Always look forward to seeing favorite soap stars on prime time shows! They are great! I think it would be great if she had a thing with Pop!

Great! She would make an excellent addition to the family. Her character played off of Len Cariou’s Henry Reagan perfectly. A love interest for Henry, a step-mother, step-grandmother for the family. There’s room at the Sunday for her.
