OLTL’s Erika Slezak Shares: “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”

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!

Kimberly McCullough Gives Clues That Have GH Fans Suspecting She Was Back for John Reilly’s Tribute Episode: “Saw Some Old Friends and Reminisced about an Absent Dear One…”

General Hospital fans began taking note of a couple of tweets sent out by beloved longtime cast member, Kimberly McCullough (Robin Scorpio), over the last 24 hours on the actress-director’s Twitter feed.

First, Kimberly shared: “I did something really cool today that involved wearing make-up and heels all day, which I clearly wasn’t prepared for.”

After that she followed it up with, “Here’s a clue – saw some old friends and reminisced about a dear absent one ….”

If you combine that with the fact that Jackie Zeman also tweeted: “Good day shooting @GeneralHospital I was invited back for a special episode today. As Y’all know I rarely post a selfie but it’s been awhile since I’ve had ‘Bobbie’ hair and makeup done. Thank you Karen, Carl, and Ari. Have a wonderful weekend, Everyone,” it would appear that both McCullough and Zeman were back for the upcoming tribute episode to the late John Reilly, who for many years played Sean Donely.

In story, Robin’s parents, Robert (Tristan Rogers) and Anna (Finola Hughes) were very close with Sean, as well.  So it all makes sense that Robin would be part of this as well.

So, if this is proven to be true, are you excited to see Kimberly back on a special episode of GH?  Comment below.

Sharon Osbourne in First Interview Since Leaving ‘The Talk’ Tells Bill Maher She’s ‘Angry’ and ‘Hurt’

In Sharon Osbourne’s first interview since her exit from The Talk, following her remarks in the controversial exchange with Sheryl Underwood on the March 10th episode of the CBS afternoon series, the former co-host told Bill Maher how she was feeling at this juncture.

The conversation between Bill Maher and Osbourne aired last night on Maher’s HBO series, “Real Time”.

At the beginning of her appearance while addressing what has happened to her, Osbourne told Maher that the controversy has left her “angry”and “hurt”.  She went on to say, , “I’ve been called so many things in my life, I am so used to being called names, but a ‘racist’ is one I will not take.”

Maher seemed to incite the flames of the entire situation when ‘summed up’ the incident that occurred that ultimately led to Osbourne’s downfall.  As viewers recall, Osbourne came to the defense of Piers Morgan for his right to have his view on Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey, where he did not believe what Markle had said about the royal family and her accusations.

Morgan walked off the set of his hosting gig at Good Morning Britain, and eventually lost the job to it as well.  So, with that Maher said of Morgan to Osbourne, “He was called a racist and lost his job, and you were called a racist and lost your job. Do I have it right?” Maher continued, “Who’s the racist and why? This is what I’m trying to figure out.”

Osbourne responded, “Me too.”  She went on to say, “Disagreeing with someone does not make you a racist.”  When the two brought up her alleged use of racial slurs against former ‘Talk’ co-hosts, she referred to those accusations as remarks from ‘disgruntled ladies.’

This interview has already been widely panned by the press, because Maher and Osbourne did not pointedly discuss  Osbourne’s treatment of Underwood on the March 10 episode that began the entire scenario, while ‘The Talk’ did address it on this past Monday’s episode when the show returned from its hiatus.

Watch a clip from Osbourne’s interview with Maher below.  Then let us know what you thought about her remarks and Maher’s via the comment section.

Cameron Mathison Shares He Will Make Summer Debut On GH and Says: “Incredibly Grateful to Frank Valentini and the Writers at GH for Including Me on Such an Iconic Show”

Longtime All My Children favorite and current co-host of Hallmark’s Home & Family, Cameron Mathison, took to his Instagram account on Friday to share his enthusiasm and excitement for what’s to come this summer when he joins ABC’s General Hospital.

No word yet as to what role Mathison will play – and whether it will indeed be Pine Valley’s Ryan Lavery, a new character, or a recast character from the past such as how Kim Delaney took over the role of Jackie Templeton, who has not been seen on the canvas for decades since Demi Moore made that role soap-famous.

In his post today, Cameron expressed thanks to GH EP Frank Valentini and the writing team,  noting: “Almost 10 years after All My Children went off the air I am so excited to be joining General Hospital this summer! I was a member of the abc family for over 15 years and soon I’ll be back: Incredibly grateful to Frank Valentini and the writers at GH for including me on such an iconic show I feel like a kid on Christmas, as I’ll also continue making Hallmark movies and continue to be part of that family as well😀🙏🏼 So so excited… thank you!!!! (More details to come😉)”

So, who do you think Cameron will play once he hits Port Charles?  Let us know and make sure to take our poll below on how you want Mathison to be integrated into the story as Ryan, a new character or a recast character blast from the past? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
