This week, Radar Online teamed with TOLN.com to share some very exclusive photos directly from the personal collection of six-time Daytime Emmy winner, Erika Slezak (Viki) of One Life to Live via her long time fan club president, Walter Miller!

The 12 photo gallery has photos of Erika through the years including: some images as her as Viki’s alter Niki Smith, the first time she played her, with Allan Miller who played lawyer, Dave Siegel, a picture of Erika at the Daytime Emmy where  one afternoon the ceremony was held outside on a boat in which her hair is ruffled up. and a beautiful picture of Erika shortly after she joined OLTL in which she writes, “Boy, was I young!”

In addition to the photos in that gallery, TOLN.com has even more photos with Erika from her collection from her early courtroom scenes on One Life, to photos with her on-screen then love interest Lee Patterson (Joe Riley), to some of her soap magazine covers, to Erika’s second Emmy win in 1986, and more!

Take a look at the galleries, and then let us know which one of the images was your favorite, and what is your favorite memory of Erika as Viki on One Life to Live?

She’s so beautiful and talented. Heartbroken that I am not getting my daytime dose of Viki, and the marvelous Erika.

while i will agree to an extent somewhat , with you about the reboot (some of it was good, some of it i wasnt too happy with BUT still supported it) i will completely disagree with you that shes yesterdays news; she is a very talented woman; why does she need to retire? because of her age, or because oltl is temporarily shelved for the moment? either way, that wouldnt be right; shes so loyal to her show that shes jumped on board both times when the reboot was attempted and is still patiently waiting for things to get straightened… Read more »

And Maybe it wont be cancelled. You are a rude disrespectful person to fans and to Erika Slezak. I am not a fan of OLTL but know Erika is a legion and is one of the most talented actresses to grace our screens. When she wants to she will retire but if she still loves acting, why should she. General Hospital has the highest ratings in the most important demo 18-39 and the improvement that Frank & Ron keep brining on. I have never cared for the CBS soaps but I do watch Y&R when Tristan is on. All for… Read more »

Erika is a daytime legend…whether or not OLTL returns she’ll never be forgotten by millions of fans who love and adore her…she’ll always be remembered while a few will ask ‘Anna who?’…nobody cares! I dont mean to sound a little harsh but the truth is Erika has a lot of fans and followers who like her which i know out number the rare few who dont!!! OLTL wasnt as good as it couldve been but it still was a good effort. You have a right to your opinion as i do as well!!!

Anna I totally disagree on every thing you said. Very harsh comments. If OLTL comes back on after settling the dispute. Maybe you shouldn’t watch it since you have such a low opinion of it… OLTL will always be my #1 favorite soap and Erika Slezak will always be my #1 favorite on OLTL! Erika is a sweet person and one classy lady ! I liked all the pictures of Erika. I remember those scenes that go with each picture. She is a beautiful woman inside and out. When I think of OLTL what comes to mind is that it… Read more »

There is no “Anna” – it’s the same jackass that’s always on here making brainless comments – I wish this person would kindly croak and do the rest of us a gigantic favor – you can tell it’s always the same person because she/he/it cannot construct one single sentence that makes any kind of sense.
Erika Slezak is a great actress and person, very classy in every way, and I do hope the One Life can return at some point in the not too distant future.

We’ll care what “Anna” thinks when she can write one sentence that isn’t a fragment of a brainless thought.

Erika is a daytime legend… over 40 years of giving us the very best of everything. Her record breaking 6 daytime emmys for outstanding lead actress is daytime proves it. OLTL will be back and I believe will be stronger than ever.

I’m not a OLTL fan. I do think Erica Slezak is rather commanding, as was
her father.

I thought I should tell anyone who may care, ES’s father was Walter Slezak,
whom starred in one of my favorite movies; LIFEBOAT. He played the
geman captain. To me, he was brilliant and the apple does not fall far from
the tree!

If you want to be entertained and see part of her acting gene pool, then watch
Alfred Hitchcock’s Lifeboat. The film was released in 1944.

I hope you all enjoy the movie and long live Erica Slezak!!!

Ive seen Lifeboat…one of my favorites…Walter…Erikas father made an appearance on OLTL in the early 1970s…both father and daughter…great actors! And speaking of Lifeboat…there was a young actress who costarred in the movie named Mary Anderson which is the same name of a character that was on Days Of Our Lives for many years until murdered by the Salem Strangler in the early 1980s…actress Mary Anderson…imo…kinda resembled Barbara Stanger, one of the several actress who played the character of Mary Anderson on Days ( Barbara played the role during the late 70s to early 80s b4 the role was recast… Read more »

4got to mention…Mary Anderson who played nurse Alice in ‘Lifeboat’ appeared in the 1960s primetime soap ‘Peyton Place’ as Catherine Peyton Harrington(i believe Mary is still with us and in her 90s now)…and the late Tallulah Bankhead from ‘Lifeboat’ was a big fan of the daytimes crime/mystery soap ‘Edge Of Night’…i once read an article that she once called Edges studious suggesting one of the female characters should shoot her bastard husband for cheating on her… soooo funny!!! i didnt know if you knew of these two Lifeboat actors soap opera connections!!!

That did not bore me at all!!! The more info, the better. Thank you
for the heads up. Tallulah was a riot, but I did not know about her
EON connection. I did hear of the character named Mary Anderson
on DOOL. As for actress Mary Anderson, she played sweet very well!
And maybe I will find the father/daughter duo on youtube! Thanks !!!

B&B’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Talks Motherhood, Steffy’s Opioid Addiction and Love Life on ‘Home & Family’

Daytime Emmy Award winner and a nominee again this year for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Daytime Drama Series, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) chatted with Home & Family.

During her segment, Jacqui discussed becoming a mom again for the second time and welcoming her new son, Lenix, and balancing raising two boys with playing the day to day perils of Steffy Forrester.

As soap fans know, last year’s storyline where Steffy became addicted to painkillers provided her with meaty material which landed her as one of the frontrunners for next week’s 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards to air on Friday night, June 25th on CBS.

MacInnes Wood became emotional when telling how Steffy’s addiction intervention helped others, relating: “I was flooded with all of these messages, and this one woman reached out to me and she said her son… it still gets me emotional … but her son was addicted and that intervention was the same thing with her family, and it touched me in such a way and she said luckily that he is sober now.”

Jacqui also talked about Steffy’s on-screen love life …. and her real-life love and husband, Elan Ruspoli.

You can watch the full interview segment here.

So, what do you think of Jacqueline raising a new baby boy, being a mom to the other, while playing Steffy’s emotional storylines? Comment below.

B&B’s Don Diamont Granted Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Don Diamont (Bill Spencer) was granted a temporary restraining order in L.A. County Superior Court against 37-year-old Quincy Adams; who Diamont says has been harassing him and his family since back in January.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Diamont alleges that Adams took to YouTube saying Don was a Satanist and responsible for COVID, 9/11, and the Iraq war.  In addition, Adams claimed to be connected to him some way from birth.

It was then that Don grew increasingly concerned when the man shared online that he knew where Diamont and his family lived.

Then came June 2nd, when Adams showed up at their front gate and Don received a call from his wife, Cindy.  The police handled Adams from there, but Don was very worried that Adams might harm him, or his family, so he was granted the temporary restraining order against him.

We wish Don and his family nothing but safety in the days ahead.

So what do you think about the claims and actions of Adams on Diamont? Comment below.
