Very sad to see her go… she is fabulous and very talented and always fun to watch!

i can not believe her reign is coming to an end………………smh

Such a very sad thing to lose such a bright star. Today had me in tears and I’m going to be crying buckets again tomorrow. Especially with the Dori/Vicki scenes.

WTF IS GOING ON WITH ABC?!? I’m watching the episode where Dorian is supposed to say goodbye to Vicki today, and after the commercial break at 1:25pm, they start playing the previous day’s episode….and continue to play it, like they don’t know this is a mistake. Are they purposely trying to screw with the OLTL viewers?!? I mean, seriously what is going on over at that network? OLTL & AMC will be so much better off when they are with Prospect Park!!!

Also, I find it very interesting that on Robin Strasser’s last air date, this happens. We all know that she has been honest of her opinions of Brian Frons and his decision to cancel AMC & OLTL….I’m not doubting that this was done on purpose. Brian you are the biggest douche on the planet!!!

Thank God, this did not happen on the West Coast.

She is coming back!

The loss of Robin as Dorian is heartbreaking. The last scenes between Dorian and Viki today were as compelling and beautiful as ever. Has there ever been a more fascinating or complicated friendship than Viki and Dorian’s? As I watched the clips of past years I couldn’t believe the number of times they had slapped each other, intermingled with laughter and fun. I love Robin’s performances as Dorian Crammer Lord. There’s something about the actress and the character that’s unforgettable and deeply satisfying.

In a TV Guide (Feb 9, 2009) interview with Robin, Nelson Branco said, “In today’s uncertain times, a viewer can always rely on La Strasser for a Maria Callas-sized performance as the deliciously complicated yet entertaining Dorian Lord. Strasser provides more bang for your soap- viewing buck than anyone else on daytime . . . While Erika Slezak puts the soap in opera, it’s Strasser who puts the opera in soap. Her brilliant and incomparable performance as Dr. Lord has helped make One Life one of the most treasured shows on TV.”

I couldn’t agree more. I will never forget you. I miss you already. Thank you for sharing your incredible talent. I pray you return to OLTL, where you rightfully belong, as soon as possible.

I had to watch Dorian’s finale online yesterday,as I was one of those affected by the “insert” of the previous days episode.
Oh,I cried a few tears….it was bittersweet watching the montage of Viki and Dorian through the years.
Robin Strasser will be missed…..let’s hope she is not missing for long,and PP picks her up.


REPORT: Matthew Atkinson Back to The Bold and the Beautiful

When we last saw The Bold and the Beautiful’s Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson), he headed out of Los Angeles with his son, Douglas (Henry Joseph Samiri) and headed to Paris. The decision to leave was prompted by Hope (Annika Noelle) turning down his marriage proposal once again, and by prodding from his sister, Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood).

Many Thope fans have wanted to see Hope and Thomas reunite and figure out where to take their relationship next, but he has been nowhere insight, and so has his portrayer, Matthew Atkinson.

However, in a new report from Soap Hub, their sources indicate that Atkinson will be back on screen next month by mid-June. In a tease, Atkinson posted a photo on his Instagram story (which has since disappeared, since IG story posts only stay up for 24 hours), where he was pointing at a TV screen behind him that showed Carter (Lawrence Saint-Victor) and Eric (John McCook) in a scene. No telling the true meaning of that snap, but it could be he is back at the show.

As Hope and Finn (Tanner Novlan) are getting closer, the timing could just work out in the most dramatic way if Thomas were to return. Since Hope and Finn are bonding over their parents, Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) and Deacon’s (Sean Kanan), upcoming nuptials, will the doctor and the designer hit the sheets and Thomas walks in on it?

Now let us know, when Thomas returns do you want to see him reconcile things with Hope, or do you want him back to the obsessed Thomas of the past who hatched plots to get what he wanted? Comment below.

General Hospital

General Hospital’s Maurice Benard Defends Sonny Going Postal, “It Could Definitely Happen”

Last Friday’s May 17th cliffhanger of General Hospital saw Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) beating up Dex (Evan Hofer) and threatening to shoot and kill both Dex and Jason (Steve Burton), who is restraining him outside the ballroom at the wedding reception of Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) and Chase (Josh Swickard).

For months, Sonny has been taking less than his prescribed dosage of medication to control his bipolar disorder.  The mobster has no idea that he has been duped by Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart), who is the one that set this dangerous situation in motion, in an effort to eliminate Sonny and eventually Jason from interfering in Pikeman taking over the territory.

One fan questioned the validity of Sonny’s reaction to Dex and Jason after the pei, when he took to X and expressed, “People off their medications don’t necessarily go around hitting people and being out of control. This was the WRONG message to send. I don’t expect anything from Frank Valentini and General Hospital anymore, but you could’ve (and should’ve) stopped it cold.”

Maurice Benard replied back to that comment and defended the actions of Sonny given the circumstances. The three-time Daytime Emmy-winner shared, “This is true but when you have a character like Sonny who’s volatile and is drinking and is manic and his thoughts are taken him over it could definitely happen like I said, ‘bipolar ain’t pretty.”‘

GH has portrayed Sonny’s battle with mental illness and the importance of keeping on your meds, plus the issues surrounding it for years. However, some fans have not been pleased by this latest plot point.


The pick-up of the story begins tomorrow on Monday, May 20th where teasers for the episode share: Sonny is horrified. Blaze consoles Kristina (who walked in on her dad threatening Jason and Dex) and Jason summons Carly.

So, what did you think of the plot point of Sonny threatening to kill Dex and Jason, after beating up Dex, given his growing paranoia? Comment below.
