Erika has alway’s been my all-time favorite on OLTL ! She is the heart & soul of OLTL. Without her it wouldn’t be OLTL plus I think the soap couldn’t go on if she weren’t there.

Erika Slezak is the best! She is a treasure..

On another note – it looks like they fixed the doors on OLTL.

They now open IN to Tea’s house – will be watching at La Buleigh.

Didn’t they have a tribute to AMC on last year’s show? Why wasn’t there anything for OLTL on this show? They would’ve had plenty of time if they had cut out that horrible singing! And Carrie Fisher was a waste of time too! They messed up the tribute to Monty Hall and they still went overtime!

As usual, Erika is the epitome of grace and class. Her father would be proud (is proud from heaven!). Love her positive outlook and her loyalty to Robin Strasser. My favorite emmy win for Erika will be NEXT YEAR! 😉

That was a terrific interview. She was one of the few presenters who appeared to know what they were doing on the Emmy Award show. She is my favorite on OLTL. I feel better about the future of OLTL and that the labor dispute will be resolved after listening to her interview.

The reason she knows what she is doing is because she has been in the business and loves daytime. I wish that ABC would do the right thing and bring them back home I applaud PP for what they have done but it is still not the same. Erika did look lovely!

Melissa Reeves Talks On DAYS Time-Jump; Paul Telfer & Eric Martsolf Chat Between Their Scenes On ‘Inside Salem’ Podcast

On the latest episode of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, the special guest is enduring DAYS star, Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), who found herself as the catalyst for the year time-jump and flash-forward that fans are now watching play out on the daytime drama series.

Last week, Jennifer was pushed off a balcony following her wedding to Jack by Princess Gina.  And on last Friday’s cliffhanger, Jennifer woke up out of a coma to learn from Jack that she has been asleep for a year.

Now with a year having passed in Salem, Jennifer learns bits of information of what has happened to her loved ones.  Meanwhile, Eve is in lock-up for the crime against Jennifer, and it appears Jennifer cannot put the pieces together of who pushed her on that fateful night to clear Eve.

In addition during the podcast, Melissa chats with host Michael Fairman on the passing of John Clarke (Ex-Mickey), and being one of the core characters tied to the legacy of the Hortons – the first family of Salem.

As to the initial reaction to the time-jump, Melissa reveals that the entire cast was very excited, but all the pressure of the attention to detail was discussed with make-up, hair, and in the writing and production.
