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!

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!!!!!

‘Days of our Lives’ to Honor James Reynolds’ 40th Anniversary as Abe Carver with Special Episode

As DAYS viewers witnessed on Friday’s episode, Abe has been shot in the park, after Carmine pulls out a gun, and Jake (Brandon Barash) tries to apprehend him.  Jake rushes to Abe’s side and calls an ambulance and he is rushed to University Hospital.  Once there, Abe eventually flatlines, while Lani (Sal Stowers), Paulina (Jackee Harry) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are besides themselves with worry.

This sets the stage for Monday’s episode where Abe will go into the light, as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) works to save his light and while he hovers between life and death, DAYS fans are treated to the special 40th anniversary episode of James Reynolds as Salem’s Abe Carver.   The Daytime Emmy-winning actor, (he won Lead Actor in 2018) began his Salem journey when he first aired back on October 29th, 1981.

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?
