REPORT: Erika Slezak and Robert S. Woods Have Made Deals To Join One Life To Live!

Huge report out this afternoon from Showbiz 411.com that reveals that their sources are telling them that both six-time Daytime Emmy winner, Erika Slezak, and a Daytime Emmy winner himself, Robert S. Woods, have signed with Prospect Park to reprise their roles as Viki Banks and Bo Buchanan!

This exclusive report from Roger Friedman at Showbiz411.com says the following: “I talked to Robert S. Woods today, the great actor who plays Bo Buchanan. He told me he’s met with the Prospect-ors, and they’ve made a deal for Woods to join the new show. Sources also say that Erika Slezak, the nominal “star” of “OLTL” has made her deal, along with Jerry verDorn (Clint Buchanan). It does seem like Prospect Park is going to make a ‘go’ of this.  Woods says he thinks they’ll be back to work by mid February.”

Now we are waiting on official word from the actors themselves, or from Prospect Park!  If this holds true, the prayers have been answered for many One Life fans who were hoping that the revival of One Life would include the biggest series longtime stars … Slezak and Woods!

On-Air On-Soaps will have more on these developments forthcoming.  In the meantime, what do you think of the report on Erika and Bob joining Prospect Park’s One Life? Let us know!

Rex and Gigi will not be there, this is going to be a half hr show so it will be scaled down, it was announced today that Matthew and Destiny will be recast, probably to make them a little older college students or something.

Cindi

Blair, Todd, John, and Starr are on General Hospital, so you know they won’t be back, but OLTL is on SoapNet every morning Monday thru Friday. I watch it everyday. It’s from 2009 and it’s still great…lol.

Robert
Guest
Robert

Depends on their contracts as to whether or not they’d consider coming back. I can live without Destiny and Natalie and Rex and Gigi.

OMG! YESSSSSS! The Core Four! Woo Hoo!

Robert
Guest
Robert

Dorian? Are you sure? That makes 3 1/2 prayers answered. Viki, Clint, Dorian, and Bo is the 1/2 prayer. I always liked him, it’s just that Bo and Nora became sooooo boring. I would prefer Bo come back without Nora at this point. Can we say Lindsay?????

Bea
Guest
Bea

I like lindsay b/c she is a little bit crazy and I like a little crazy. lol

Robert
Guest
Robert

a little bit crazy and a whole lot bitchy makes the perfect combination for me. I’ve always liked my soap women to be strong, which doesn’t translate into bitchy, but let’s face it, Dorian holds the cards on bitchy and Lindsay holds the cards on crazy, and I love them both.

Jody

This was what I was waiting for to end my one year funk……..have never posted here before; could not be more thrilled

Now……Hilary B Smith for the win……

Right there with you! From your lips to Hil’s ears!

BonnieJ

Hilary works on another soap and an online soap. I guess f she wants to leave one of those she ould comeback..other wise I guess Nora and Matt are someplace else maybe raisin the baby

Michael (not Fairman)
Guest
Michael (not Fairman)

She works on, I think, three online soaps (both of Crystal Chappell’s and “Fumbling thru the Pieces”), so it must be that they are not exclusive deals, and she’s recurring on Bold and Beautiful but not on contract. So I don’t think any of that really precludes her from joining the reboot (but I’m not sure).

This is great news for OLTL fans all we need now is for HBS and KdP to sign. Then our show will be back.

Where is Hillary, can’t have Bo without Nora. That is like having peanut butter without jelly. You can’t have one without the other.

We NEED “NORA”.

Bmonika

Nora is on B and B on CBS 🙁

Bmonika
Guest

Very disappointed that Rex and Gigi (forget there actor/actress name) won’t be signing. They were my favs

TRW
Guest
TRW

You may get Nora, but it will probably be a re-cast then. HBS is only recurring on BB though so she can go back to OLTL, but might not make sense for her to do that.

stephanie
Guest

Besides Marlena on Days, Viki on OLTL has always been my favorite leading lady. Deidre and Erika are phenominal! Glad that Bob Woods signed too!

Viki, Clint, Bo and Dorian!! It brought tears to my eyes. I can’t wait for One Life to Live to be back on!!! I’ll take it in any form they want to give it to me. I’m hoping that Prospect makes an announcement soon how they’ll stream it so we know the best device to purchase.

Marci
Guest

They are reprising the story line from defunked soap Port Charles. I think its funny!

Olivia
Guest
Olivia

Michael Easton played Caleb on Port Charles long before he played John on OLTL. They’re either doing a little nod to PC fans or they’re finding a way to keep Michael Easton and release John McBain. You can’t make an actor move across the country for an online show if he/she is under contract with someone else and doesn’t want to be released. There are many fans who love OLTL and GH & who have been longtime viewers for decades. I’m one of them and while o loved John on OLTL, I want Michael Easton to remain on GH.

However, I am OVERJOYED for those of you who will be watching and who never lost hope that you would get these shows back.

I did watch both OLTL and AMC for many years and I know OLTL would be nothing without Erika Slezak.

Hi Michael!! The most thrilling news I got all day! I am so happy for the returns of our legendary Bo Buchanan & Victoria Lord. Now, as these reports progress, a good official comment from Mr. Woods and Ms. Slezack would make the icing on the cake! We may have more actors accepting their returns and possible talks after this. I’m still a bit hesitant on the second 2.0 revival, but as new developments are increasing, my hopes are starting to go up! I may get to see my beloved Vicki, Clint, daring Dorian, and the best R. Woods!!

As a long time time fan of One Life To Live, I am looking forward seeing my friends again. The reasons I say friends is because, I have watched the show since 1973. I got to meet them at fan luncheons, soft ballgames and other events. So I am hoping this is true that Prospect Park is actually picking up the show and we aren’t going to get disappointed again. I am looking to the day when it will begin again. I know this is little early saying thank you for bring back my favorite soap of all times.

Absolutey …. need Vickerman. One of the great things about OLTL was always the balance between drama and fun. They took their stories seriously but not themselves. They know that we, like them, need to have fun and lighthearted moments.

I am very much excited to hear that Erika Slezak, Bo Buchanan, Jerry VerDorn and Robin Strasser may be returning to OLTL on the Web TOLN. I miss these stars very much, every day, and nothing could make me happier than to know they will be on board when OLTL returns. What a fantastic Valentine’s Day this will be for all the OLTL cast and their fans!!!!!!!! Wow – my heart beats with joy!!!!!!!

Public Relations Exec & Former CBS Watch Guru, Jeremy Murphy, New Book with Special Nod to ‘Santa Barbara’ Avail for Pre-Order

If you want an inside look into the colorful, often back-stabbing world of PR and entertainment, but with a very candid yet very humorous take, you are going to want to order and pick up your copy of Jeremy Murphy’s new book, F**k Off, Chloe, and as it turns out, the author himself includes a surprising tribute to the beloved Santa Barbara!

Murphy, who spent 14 years at CBS where he the creator and editor in chief of the high-profile magazine, CBS Watch, later launched a successful career with countless clients in his boutique PR agency, 360 bespoke.  The agency is known for clients in the fields of luxury, the arts, fashion/ beauty, hospitality, travel, media, start-ups and entrepreneurs.  In fact, former Days and RHOBH star, Lisa Rinna beauty brand, Rinna Beauty, has been one of his clients.

In the log lines for this new book, available for pre-order from Simon & Schuster, it details: ‘Public relations’ snarkiest publicist Jeremy Murphy expertly chronicles his hatred, love, indifference, amusement, and scorn for the profession in F*ck Off, Chloe. From entitled millennials to surly reporters, obnoxious clients, and cumbersome, color-coded “trackers,” Murphy takes a scalpel and glass of Châteauneuf-du-Pape to the PR industry in a searing, hilarious, and pissy voice that his own psychiatrist finds “deeply concerning.” His collection of annoyances shed light on the industry’s idiosyncrasies, insanities, contradictions, and past due invoices, providing an illuminating window into the dirty world of public relations not even Xanax can help. Complementing the scathing prose are color-in illustrations by artist Darren Greenblatt, creator of the “Ugly Lives of Beautiful People” sketch series.’

Murphy told Michael Fairman TV as to why soap fans may want to check out the book: “Any Santa Barbarian will love this because it finally says what needs to be said: best.show.ever.”  Jeremy is in indeed a hard core Santa Barbara fan.

On a personal note, Michael Fairman shared: “I used to work with Jeremy when he was an editor-in-chief and commissioned me to write profiles of celebrities, and it was always a fun journey to collaborate with him. This new book spoofs PR, journalism, TV and media, in an honest, unapologetic, but hysterical way.”

To pre-order, F**k Off, Chloe click here and look for its release in store and everywhere in March of 2022.
