Robin Strasser and Robert Woods Added as Guests on "The View's Salute to OLTL"!

Courtesy/ABC

Thank Goodness, The View had the forethought to include (and not forget, because that would have have been a HUGE mistake) the incomporable Robin Strasser (Dorian) to their tribute show on One Life to Live!

It will be great to see Robin and Erika Slezak (Viki), who is slated as the episode’s special co-host, reunited on The View Salutes One Life to Live airing January 13th just a few hours before the final episode of OLTL airs across the county!

In addition, another stellar One Life star, Robert S. Woods (Bo Buchanan) has also been added to the line-up!  We had also heard via Twitter from Hillary B. Smith (Nora Buchanan) last week that she would also be appearing on the episode.  So, get out your hankies for this one folks!  And, we will keep you posted over the next few weeks as the line-up for the show continues to evolve!

Hats off to The View for getting “it” right… too bad ABC can’t do the same and renew One Life To Live!

She is kind of like fireworks isn’t she? Love it! Wish Tuc Watkins would be on the show with her.

Very good! It would be great to see the actors who play Tina, Cord, Alex, Gabrielle, Max, Todd, Blair, Victor, Tea, Starr, Matthew, Rex, Gigi, Clint, Troy, Lindsey and Nigel all on there also.
I seriously hope that Dorian taped for the last episode somehow. I wish it was a surprise that none of us would know about and would be surprised about. I can dream.

It means a lot to me as a Dorian Lord and Robin Strasser fan to see her on the last day OLTL airs since she will not be in the finale. Awesome news!

I so enjoyed The View’s tribute to AMC, and I look forward to their tribute episode to One Life To Live. I am sure it will be spectacular, as I enjoy everyone on that show. I am happy that TBTB at The View had the insight to invite Robin Strasser, as when you say One Life To Live, Robin and Erika are the first two that come to mind. I am happy that Bo and Nora will also be on. I hope Michael Easton and others are on the show as well. I honestly still cannot wrap my head around… Read more »

It’s disturbing having to say goodbye because the stories are really getting good these days. Unlike Guiding Light and All My Children who were nothing more than shadows of their former selves during their final years, One Life to Live is still the same great soap that we have come to enjoy over the past 25 years.

I could not agree more. I had pretty much quit watching GL, ATWT & AMC by the time they went off the air but I was very upset to lose them because you can always go back to them when they “cycle through” & get good again. Just to know they are still there & I still kept up with them even if I wasn’t watching daily. But I have never lost a show that was FANTASTIC every single day, a show that I never, ever miss & sometimes even watch again at night on Soapnet. Losing OLTL will be… Read more »

I enjoy watching ‘The View’. So glad to read of the salute by them to OLTL cast and farewell show. Marking it on my calender as a MUST WATCH! (((*_*))) ~ It is so sad that ABC’s Soap Operas are now ‘a thing of the past’. I sooo agree {with other fans} that see the solution is for OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) to research the dollars, sponsorship, and cost of making her OWN ‘high definition’ will blow-up her network ratings and our favorite soap can remain on television. Hail Hail to cable!!!!!

Kelly Ripa Talks On Her New Memoir ‘Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories’

Talk show host and All My Children alum, Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley) is opening up about her life and times in her highly-anticipated memoir available now, Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories.

Ripa chatted exclusively with PEOPLE who got some of intel and dish on what’s included in the book.

Kelly told PEOPLE, when she landed the gig as the new co-host of Live with Regis and Kelly, with the late Regis Philbin back in 2001, she felt like she was “getting shot out of a cannon.”  Ripa was also appearing on All My Children at the same time.

She tells the story of when her agent called with the offer, Ripa was told: “They want you to know who your boss is. It was very ominous, and it did not feel good.”  Her agent also said the show didn’t want her, “bringing an entourage.” She brought two people. “I came with hair and makeup,” Kelly says. “It was not an unusual thing for people on a television show to show up with.”

She added that Regis greeted her with executive producer, Michael Gelman, saying: “Uh-oh, Gelman, it’s got an entourage.” It?!  Kelly expressed that she “felt horrible.  He was probably trying to be funny, but at the same time it felt like a pile-on.”

As for Philbin’s attitude at the time, Kelly shared, “I understand that probably he didn’t want a co-host, but the network wanted me to be the co-host and I didn’t think I should pass up that opportunity. I don’t think it was fair to him. But it was also not fair to me.”

The actress-talk show host-producer also talked on her marriage to Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo), whom she met while both were on All My Children, sharing that they were, “too young to get married! On paper it should not have worked and when it didn’t work, we really worked at it. We fought for our marriage when it would have been easier to quit and throw in the towel.”

According to the book publisher, HarperCollins:  “In ‘Live Wire’, her first book, Kelly shows what really makes her tick. Whether recounting how she and Mark (Consuelos) really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment) Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.”

Days Of Our Lives

Roark Critchlow on His Return to DAYS and Working With Cady McClain

It’s been 12 years since Roark Critchlow appeared on Days of our Lives as Dr. Mike Horton, the brother of Jennifer Horton Deveraux (Cady McClain). However, fans have been excited to see him back on their screens when the series teased his appearance in the extended fall preview.

Now with Jennifer spiraling downward (now that her pill-popping addiction is back), it seems like a good time for Dr. Mike to return to Salem to help his sis. (And if the promo for this week’s DAYS is any indication, it certainly looks like Jennifer is going to be involved in a car crash and need medical assistance or at least some brotherly love.)

Photo: JPI

Roark initially appeared as Mike back in 1994 and left the soap back in 1999. He returned in 2010 for a few episodes honoring the late Frances Reid (Alice Horton) who was Mike’s grandmother.

In an interview about his return with Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Roark talks about working with McClain as Jennifer, when he previously worked with Missy Reeves in the part.

Critchlow expressed on sharing scenes with McClain: “Her character is going through a lot. She and I dropped in really easily, I felt. It was a very nice, natural care for each other. It wasn’t difficult, that’s for sure. Obviously, Missy is a super-duper person. But you don’t compare people. Cady and I chatted. We got on good. In terms of story, I thought we pulled it off nicely as being people who’ve known each other their whole lives.”

Look for Roark to make his DAYS re-emergence on the upcoming October 3rd episode of the Peacock streaming series.

So, looking forward to seeing Roark and Cady sharing scenes together? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first check out this week’s promo for DAYS below.

John Cena Sets World Record After Granting 650th Wish for the Make-A-Wish-Foundation

There is nobody more requested at the Make-A-Wish Foundation than John Cena. The 16-time WWE wrestling champ-turned-actor for years has granted the wishes of children with critical illnesses for the non-profit foundation.

Now comes the news from the Guinness Book of World Records that Cena has broken the record for granting 650 wishes to children who have put him as the person they want to meet the most.

To put this into context, no other celebrity has ever granted more than 200 wishes in the 42-year existence of Make-A-Wish.

According to a press release, Cena started granting wishes back in 2002 and completed his 100th in 2012, now he is at 650.

Recently this past June, John visited Misha, a teenager with down-syndrome who fled Ukraine after his home was destroyed. In order to keep Misha’s spirits up, his mother told him they were on their way to find John Cena. You can watch their story below, followed by a video package honoring Cena’s 500th milestone with the organization.

On a personal note: as someone who at one time worked as the Director of Communications for the Make-A-Wish-Foundation at a locale chapter in the U.S, I know the smiles and the impact a visit from a child’s personal idol can make to help lift their spirits when trying to cope with critical health issues.

Congratulations John!
