In honor of this week being One Life to Live’s 45th anniversary, MORE One Life to Live has a great sit-down interview with Llanview’s supercouple, Dorian and Viki, better known as Daytime Emmy winners, Robin Strasser (Dorian) and Erika Slezak (Viki)!

The two icons of One Life, discuss their Daytime Emmy victories, where Erika has won a record six in the Lead Actress field, and Robin has won once.  But as you will see, the ladies have good time with that one!

Later, Robin opens up about her very first day on the set, and how difficult it was for her to remember all the names of all the characters,  but Erika told her she would be very good in the part.   It’s an emotional, lovely moment that long time fans of the series will appreciate.

After the jump, watch two great clips of Erika Slezak and Robin Strasser dishing with each other … about each other! Then, share your thoughts on the on-screen chemistry between Viki and Dorian that has lasted for decades (and that has been so integral to the show),  and if you enjoyed these two clips from their new interview!

I remember one of Robin’s first scenes when she took over the role: She was talking with Gwendolyn Abbott (who was being played by Eileen Letchworth, presumably filling in for Joan Copeland) in the Lord living/drawing room. I always LOVED Robin’s work, but I would by lying by saying I didn’t adore Nancy Pinkerton and Claire Malis in the part. (It was only until they resurrected the part of Melinda — then played by Jane Badler — that I adjusted to Claire.) Robin soon won me over — she infused Dorian with verve and energy, and it was great to… Read more »

Wow I really am old I guess for I remember Nancy Pinkerton as Dorian, and I thought she was superb but vacated the role when the producers only offered her a modest raise, and she had “worked her socks off” making Dorian an interesting character. Back then, you didn’t know for sure if Dorian was sincere or not. Nancy Pinkerton managed to keep the viewers guessing by keeping Dorian’s appearances somewhere between nice and not so nice. Claire Malis followed her in the role, her portrayal was all right but never overly impressed me. Today, Dorian is played much more… Read more »

I’m right there with you. I remember Nancy Pinkerton and Claire Malis as well and definitely enjoyed their work. But, I have to say Dorian took on a whole new life with the advent of Robin Strasser. Robin has added so many layers and complexities to Dorian. You love her,. You hate her. You want to ring her neck. Then you feel for her because of her hurts and insecurities. With all due respect to the late Ms. Pinkerton and Ms. Malis and to Elaine Princi, no one can out Dorian Robin Strasser. Whenever Dorian and Viki are together, whether… Read more »

All My Children

Mark Consuelos on the All My Children Primetime Reboot: “I Know They’re Going to Bring Back Some Fan Favorites”

On Friday, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) was a guest on the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, where he shared his excitement and some insight into the upcoming All My Children primetime reboot, Pine Valley, in development at ABC..

As previously reported, Mark and his wife Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) are two of the executive producers on the project.

Consuelos shared on the reboot:All My Children was such a big part of my life and my wife’s life. And you know, I met my wife there obviously, had kids, became a young man on that show, and we got the opportunity to reboot the primetime version and the idea was brought to us, and we’re so excited.  Of all the things that we’ve ever announced that we’re going to do, this is one of the biggest responses we’ve got from our fans. They’re so excited.  It’s a big piece of TV that’s been missing for such a long time, and we’re going to bring it back.”

When avid soap fan and The Talk co-host, Sheryl Underwood, posed a major question to Consuelos that has been on longtime All My Children fans minds, she got a solid response from him.

Sheryl was trying to get some tea on who might appear in the reboot, when she asked, “Is it going to be the Cortlandts and the Warners? Is it going to be everybody?” Consuelos then responded with: “I know they’re going to bring back some fan favorites, and it will take place in Pine Valley, and I’m really, really excited.”

You can watch a portion of Mark’s virtual visit on The Talk below.

Then let us know, which AMC characters do you want to see back and on the primetime series, Pine Valley?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

General Hospital

Lexi Ainsworth Teases Her Return to General Hospital

With her father Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) presumed dead (although viewers know he is very much alive with amnesia), it looks like Kristina is on her way back to Port Charles – which would be a welcome return to the role for Daytime Emmy winner Lexi Ainsworth.

Rumors began circulating on Inauguration day Wednesday, when Ainsworth shared a pic on her Instagram Story of her watching the ceremonies from a dressing room at Prospect Studios in Los Angeles, where GH is taped.

Later, after reports had surfaced on social media that Ainsworth might be returning to her signature role, the actress shared some of those on her Instagram Story as well, which was seen as her way of confirming she is back on the show.

Lexi has been recurring on General Hospital for the last several years, so there is no telling how long she will be on-screen this time.

While there has been no official confirmation from GH, chances are that if there is a funeral ahead for Sonny, Kristina of course would be there to mourn her father. Stay tuned.

So, excited that Lexi will be back on-air on GH? Comment below.
