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.

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

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!
