Yes!! And Yes!! IMO it’s not OLTL without Dorian and Viki. TPTB made a huge mistake when they let her go to Passions years ago but they recognized this and brought her back. Now we need to get Clint ad Bo too.

I agree. I heard Susan Lucci on QVC and I realized how much I missed hers and Viki’s voice. I’m 47, been listening the them all my life. Like losing family.

I am Very Happy that Robin Strasser has signed on for the OLTL reboot with PP!!! Dorian was a very important part of OLTL and was Greatly missed when she made her exit due to a back injury before OLTL left ABC. The Cramer women are a great group! Here’s to hoping that Kassie Depaiva will sign soon too!
And Dorian needs her Buddy Vicki to tangle with! Come back Erika Slezak!!

It’s great that she’ll be on the show. One of my fave OLTL storylines was Dorian and Joey. I know, a long time ago. I don’t watch OLTL anymore, but I def think the show needs Robin and Dorian!

The good news just continues to keep pouring in! Can’t wait to hear who else is signing on. And of course, with Clint and Dorian’s wonderful portrayers on board, I’m just biting my nails waiting for them to announce the next logical person to tent pole this show: Erika Slezak as Victoria Lord!

I really hope OLTL gets Sleazak. She is perhaps the best actress on daytime tv and very credible. I know some will get mad at this but realistically I think she will return. she hasn’t had a lot offers for the last year. I think the saddest thin is that I know some hate Susan Lucci or Erica Kane or her acting – I suggest the problem might be Susan has become Erica on tv and her character is a bit out there. I have seen her and she can but the entertainment world wants Erica Kane not mousy Susan Lucci which we saw on Dancing with the Stars (which ironically shows the girl can act!) but I am not sure she can come back. She has two current contracts and I am not sure Devious Maids will spare her right now. One would hope they could make this a win win situation with Devious and AMC and heck, Deadly Affairs – Susan’s show about real life affairs that end in death. Susan is the queen of daytime – Deirdre, Melody, Robin, Erika, Genie, Kristian, Kelly et al are great divas but they do not have the star power of Susan Lucci. She is iconic and so identifiable with the AMC brand – they just have to do something to assure her comeback.

MBmomof3

I agree Skater Boy. I’m personally not a huge Erica Kane fan, but LaLucci is the face of the AMC brand IMO. AMC without Susan Lucci is like a PBJ with just the bread. Glad she has other gigs, but AMC needs her too. Hope they can make it so.

Erica Slezak is the best on daytime tv but maybe she will feel that she was slighted by PP and not come back. Maybe she just plain retired and is enjoying her life. I hope to see her back. As for SL, she irritated the heck out of me too but when she was not on AMC, it just was not the same. Hopefully Michael E. Knight will sign aboard. Any word on the AMC folk?

Best news ever! Now we need Vicki [ES]! They are essential.

I am so encouraged by this.

Rose

Dorian and Clint are back as definites. Now we need Vicki, David, Tea, Victor Jr., Tina, Bo (but I know that would be impossible since he retired.). There are way too many to list but there are some that we can do without. Starr stands out. Danelle would be great and Matthew. I would love to see that story line evolve. Oh my, I almost forgot Sean… definitely need him back on. I am so very fricken happy right now. I will take AMC and OLTL as a half hour show. Now the question is can we tape them or would we be able to buy the episodes on itunes.

Rose
Rose

think they will move the taping of AMC back to NYC?

Jim

Both shows will be taped in Stamford, Connecticut, a bedroom suburb of NYC so any necessary AMC actors who didn’t permanently relocate to LA could easily work on the shows.

Jim

Of course they need Erika back! And I hope they cast for Jack and Sam LORD. Jack can work at The Banner with Viki to spite “uncle” Todd.

Jo

I am so excited. I was really sad when OLTL went off. It would be great if all of the original cast would be back as well. I wonder when it will be back on. I heard it was for online only and not TV.

Jussie Smollett Cut From Rest Of Season Of EMPIRE; Tells Cast He’s Innocent Of Charges

Following the turn of events for Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon, Empire) where he was arrested and charged on multiple felony counts and then posted bail, the producers of Fox’s sudsy primetime drama have decided to pull him from the remaining two episodes of the season.

“The events of the past few weeks have been incredibly emotional for all of us,” executive producers Lee Daniels, Danny Strong, Brett Mahoney, Brian Grazer, Sanaa Hamri, Francie Calfo, and Dennis Hammer said in a statement this morning following the legal fallout for Jussie Smollett and his arrest stemming from an alleged hate crime reported on January 29th that he staged on himself.

The producers went on to say: “Jussie has been an important member of our Empire family for the past five years and we care about him deeply. While these allegations are very disturbing, we are placing our trust in the legal system as the process plays out. We are also aware of the effects of this process on the cast and crew members who work on our show and to avoid further disruption on set, we have decided to remove the role of ‘Jamal’ from the final two episodes of the season.”

This happened even after Smollett returned to work on Thursday, and even after the actor/singer reportedly apologized to the cast and crew of Empire for any embarrassment the recent allegations may have caused, but at the same time, sources reported, that he maintained that he was innocent,

According to CNN: “The person at the meeting said they were shocked and dismayed that Smollett stuck to his story of innocence. For the most part, the source said, Smollett paraphrased what was in the statement that his attorney put out that afternoon, blaming the legal system and the media for his woes.”

So, what do you think of the Empire producers decision to cut Smollett from the last two shows of the season? What do you think of Jussie still maintaining his innocence to the cast? Comment below.

‘Empire’ Star Jussie Smollett Turns Himself In After Being Charged With Allegedly Filing False Police Report & Facing Criminal Charges

In major developments in the last several hours, Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon, Empire) turned himself in to Chicago police early Thursday morning, just hours after he was charged with disorderly conduct for allegedly staging a racist and homophobic attack against himself late in January on the streets in Chicago.

In a press conference currently being conducted by the CPD supervisor, Eddie Johnson and Commander Edward Wodnick, they revealed that Smollett turned himself in quietly and without issue.   In addition, the Chicago PD are outlining the events and timeline that led to Smollett’s arrest.

Smollett turned himself in at the Central District police station in Chicago at 5 a.m., police reported.  Thursday morning, Smollett was scheduled to appear for a bail hearing Thursday at 1:30pm central time on a felony charge of a class 4 disorderly conduct, and with that charge Smollett could face up to 1.5 years in prison.

Jussie’s attorney’s released the following statement on Wednesday night after Smollett was charged by the Chicago PD: “Like any other citizen, Mr. Smollett enjoys the presumption of innocence, particularly when there has been an investigation like this one where information, both true and false, has been repeatedly leaked. Given these circumstances, we intend to conduct a thorough investigation and to mount an aggressive defense.”

Smollett reported that he has been attacked as he was walking home around.  He claimed two masked men shouted racist and homophobic slurs as they beat him, put a noose around his neck, and poured a chemical on to him.

Enter two brothers, Ola and Abel Osundairo, who Smollett knew, who were arrested last week, but later released as suspects. The two brothers told police they helped stage the attack with Smollett.  They were paid $3,500 to orchestrate the attack by Smollett.  In their press conference, the Chicago PD revealed that they have the check as evidence were Smollett paid the brothers that sum.

The brothers left for Nigeria hours after the attack, and were arrested days later when they returned to Chicago.   On Wednesday, they testified to a grand jury. Smollett was later charged with disorderly conduct.

What do you think now about the events and the arrest of Jussie Smollett?  Comment below! But first watch the Chicago PD police department.live feed of the press conference on Smollett’s arrest.

Thad Luckinbill Back Taping At The Young and the Restless

Well, well, well! Look who is back on set at The Young and the Restless!  Thad Luckinbill, who is presumed dead as J.T. Hellstrom, was seen walking around the sound stages at CBS Television City on Wednesday.

That is because Thad is taping again at the number-one soap opera!  In a tweet put out by the series Twitter account with a photo of Thad (see below), they reveal: “Spotted On Set! J.T. Taking a coffee break. Stay tuned!”

So now the mystery begins!  Will J.T. be alive after all, which would exonerate Nikki, and her gal pals in crime, Phyllis, Sharon and Amelia from a murder rap?

Could Thad just be back to appear as a ghost?  Will he come back alive and continue his abusive ways towards Victoria?

When Luckinbill returned to the show in late 2017, fans were in for a shock when once nice guy, J.T. was turned into a spousal abuser.

So, what do you think of J.T. coming back to Genoa City … or is he? How will this story play out now that it is in the hands of head writer, Josh Griffith? Comment below,
