Phoro:ABC

Erika Slezak (Viki), the six-time Daytime Emmy-winner and beloved iconic star of One Life to Live, sent out and posted her annual holiday letter to her fans and her fan club updating them on her life during Covid-19 while living in her homes in Vermont and Connecticut.

She related that she had been doing,”what most of the world, have been doing…isolating, staying home, wearing masks, and desperately trying to stay away from other people, which is not always possible.”

Slezak expresses that she feels things are looking up now that three Covid-19 vaccines are on the horizon and that she, for one, “will definitely be fighting to be first in line to get a vaccination.”

 

In November, Erika detailed she had surgery on her left foot after 42 years on TV and in high heels. but is recovering fine.  She also most imporantly notes she has been happy to have her son, daughter, and her husband around her during these challenging times.

Finally, Erika shared her heartfelt message for the upcoming holidays: “I wish all of you a wonderful holiday season and a healthy happy 2021, with prayers that it will be much improved over this last year, which surely was one for the books.  With love and best wishes to you all.”

It is always a great pleasure to hear from the fabulous Erika Slezak. I am so glad to know that she and her family are staying safe and well. I certainly agree with her about wanting to be the first in line to receive a vaccination.

Thank you Michael for sharing her beautiful holiday message.

Glad you recovered from your surgery, heels seem to be a sad requirement in our society for some careers. After wearing heels for many years owning a small chain of saĺons, my grandma could not stand flat in bare feet, along with other foot maladies. Loved you in OLTL, and miss you all, happy holidays and a healthy and happy New Year!

According to Soap Opera Digest, Look for Konefal to first appear back on-screen during the January 28th episode of the NBC daytime drama series.

However, reportedly this this will be Ciara in the flesh, not a conjured up or “Vision” of her that comes to Ben in his time of need.

What do you think has happened to Ciara since the car explosion she was supposedly part of? Glad to know Victoria is on her way back on-air to DAYS? Comment below.

Will AMC Favorite Josh Duhamel Replace Armie Hammer in JLo’s Film, ‘Shotgun Wedding’?

After a controversial few weeks, which saw Armie Hammer exit his leading role opposite Jennifer Lopez in Liongate’s upcoming romantic-comedy/adventure film Shotgun Wedding, it appears the motion picture has found its replacement if the ink is signed.

Former All My Children and Daytime Emmy winner Josh Duhamel (Ex-Leo) has been picked as Hammer’s replacement.

The film tells the story of a couple that gathers their families for a destination wedding even as they get cold feet. If that wasn’t enough, the entire party then gets taken hostage.

Lopez and Hammer were headed for the film shoot in the Dominican Republic when salacious DM’s rumored to be attributed to  Hammer came to light on social media and derailed the films for now.  However, if Duhamel signs on to the film, they could can retain its start date in February

Hammer had responded to the allegations against him and the DM’s by sharing: “I’m not responding to these bullshit claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic,”

A Lionsgate spokesperson  also responded to Hammer and his exit sharing: “Given the imminent start date of Shotgun Wedding, Armie has requested to step away from the film, and we support him in his decision.”

The Hollywood Reporter first broke the casting news update.

So what do you think of Duhamel as Hammer’s replacement to play opposite JLO? Comment below.
