The one and only Robin Strasser (Dorian, One Life to Live) took to her Twitter account this morning to share her feelings on Prospect Park’s shelving of One Life to Live, and her unpaid salary she says is owed  her as part of her contract with the production company who brought back to the life the canceled ABC soap opera and moved it online.

Robin went on to say:  “OK-I’ll step IN it:) I signed a PPP contract for a full year! When they “shelve” OLTL pending lawsuits w/ ABC I did NOT think: cancelled.  SHELVED doesn’t mean CANCELLED. Vet me w/dictionary-W/guarantee of a # of weeks work during a year-I worked 11 until “SHELVED” stay tuned…NAIEVE is not a word often applied to me LOL but I want OLTL and AMC  to be REVIVED & STAY THAT WAY! SUE ME:) & if I’ve mis-stepped-they WILL:) I RESPECTFULLY requested to be paid the balance of my 1YR contract on or about 2/14 if production didn’t resume.  PPP sed w/due respect: NO, I LOVE PPP OR any entity that goes the DISTANCE:) for OLTL AMC 🙂 I’d go recurring if ABC  gets smart again LOL I’m so smart I’m stupid:) Back to conclude point: Legally PPP  has in their contract the term: ceases production. Ergo: shelved=’s no dough for many:( shelf=cancelled. Does this mean “give up”? or start hunting down meanies? I’m too exhausted & chubby for that:) But I remain BIG on Soaps& FANS who LOVE’em.”

So, what do you think about Robin’s series of tweets?  Let us know!

She’d be perfect as Julian Jerome’s mommy on GH but i can hear fans groaning ‘OLTL pet no.4 hits GH’…lol

I agree with you. ROBIN strasser would be very good, as Julian Jerome’s mama. GH producers please hire Robin strasser now.

Can somebody who speaks Twitter please translate this? She is “too exhausted & chubby”??? WTH!!!

Joshua…I think Robin is calling herself overweight…LOL…saying she’s too tired and out of shape to start hunting them down to get what they owe her…I THINK that’s what she means…it’s not Twitter speak…it’s Robin speak. She’s always playing on words and double entendres when trying to get her point across.

Yes! Robin would be PERFECT as Julian Jerome’s mother! Just perfect! Who cares if GH hires another OLTL vet. In this case it would be a smart decision, even if she were just hired on a recurring status basis.

After year of reading her dizzying quotes and calling her train-wreck of a telephone hotline, I am convinced that THIS WOMAN IS CERTIFIABLE!

C’mon now, it’s Twitter! filled w/lots of abbreviations. I understood precisely what she was saying. And, I most certainly am not certifiable.

I agree Thad. I understand she was devastated when OLTL was canceled and she took to Twitter for emotional/fan supports. But it seems odd to me that that’s her outlet…she holds nothing back…

I personally think she’s harming her chances of gettiing more work; she never “tweets” with any of her former co-stars or any soap actors…but makes known every disappointment which of course TPTB probably read.

While it’s entertaining to get her “inside view”…I think she needs to curb back if she doesn’t want to come off as a tad errrr…over the top!

support…not supports. LOL…Michael…is there ANY way to get an edit tab on these comments! Verrrry frustrating when you can’t go back after you’ve noticed you’ve made an error! 🙂

It happens I just finished reading the Llanview In The Afternoon book by Jeff Giles last night. (Great read by the way.) The last chapters are devoted to ABC’s cancelling OLTL and then the hope of the PP relaunch only to have PP pull the rug out from everyone at the very last minute a second time.

All of the actors who took part in the re-relaunch took a great leap of faith with PP only to have the rug pulled out from them a third time.

I don’t think Twitter was the place for Robin Strasser to address this but I can’t blame her or anyone else for wanting PP to make good on what they guaranteed the actors who took a chance on them.

PP looks especially tacky because they don’t seem to be the least bit shy about suing ABC for an exorbitant amount of money for supposedly breaching their contract with PP yet PP doesn’t seem to feel any need to honor their own contracts with anyone else.

What tools.

Hard to follow her, she is certainly great as Dorian Lord on ONE LIFE and if it ever gets another re-launch since it’s not officially “cancelled” it will be great to see her as that unforgettable character. However, I, like many fans, am not holding my breath until that day – sorry, I don’t like what ABC-TV did with the show and I surely did not like Prospect Park’s non-communicative tactics at all, so it’s difficult to know WHAT to hope
for at this point.

I’m a fan. Robin Strasser brought me many years of entertainment on OLTL, AW & Passions. Miss her on my screen. Hang in there Robin.

where PP went wrong..
On the internet PP should have never ever had that totally lame dance opening.. it was lame ..
Any NEW to the soap, a younger person would click out as soon as they seen that horribly lame song & dance opening..

A person will judge and decide to watch or not watch in the first few seconds, and OLTL opening said old fashioned lame stuff ..

If you have a drama you need a drama opening to represent the product..
OLTL song and dance open shouted LAME!!

Jack Evans

Oh brother I totally agree with that statement, that on-line Opening for One Life to Live with that atrocious dance routine was embarressing to watch – even the old old introduction with the sun rising over a mountain, corny as that may have been, would have been better that that horrendous intro – the music was horrific, the movements were stiff, I tolerated it just to have the show back but any Fan with some know-how could have come up with a better Opening.

Her tweets Are amusing and she is keeping her name out there. Of course PP is not going to pay for production that never happened. The actors made very little money for all the fuss and bother but that is show biz and that is life.

Y&R needs Robin to fill the Jeanne Cooper void. Jill & Nicki aren’t the ones.

I think ABC should revive ALL My Children and One Life To Live again, or at least one of them. If both, make it the serial 30 minutes instead of an hour. Thirty minutes of All My Children and 30 minutes of One Life To Live – an hour block. Put it up against Days Of Our Lives.
If ABC doesn’t want to put All My Children and One Life To Live back on the air anymore (but yet they want the rights back), then let CBS, NBC or OWN have it.
Their always is the idea to make a brand-new soap opera.
But, alas, they say it’s too expensive to put on soap operas now and the ratings are not Super Bowl.
One more thing to throw in: They never did make a Days of Our Lives spin-off. Would it be less-expensive for a 30 minute format?

terri

i agree….i wish abc would grow a brain…or at least a little common sense and realize they made a mistake and correct it by reviving both – even if in 30 minute formats.

Jack Evans

They should combine OLTL and AMC and call it “Pine Valley” or call it “Landview” or call it ALL MY CHILDREN EACH HAVE ONE LIFE TO LIVE (Kidding there) but they should combine the best elements of each and have one show that would satisfy fans of both shows – it would be the best solution since not all the actors are available anymore. It’s a great idea and would work, but alas, instead they will probably come up with another boring Talk show filled with cooking recipes that no one cares about. If ABC-TV gets the rights back, it will be interesting to see what happens – if Prospect Park gets the rights back, Lord only knows what will occur – only time will tell.

Ginny

I agree 100% with her. I love and miss both shows. Did not care for the drastic changes when online (language and sexual conduct), that really shocked me. Oh well,guess its just me expecting the same old shows as they were on abc.

Please, please, someone, bring back OLTL and AMC too. Love you Robin.

I agree with Robin’s statement. If PP isn’t going to produce these shows I wish ABC or OWE would. OWE has 2 soaps already. I hate to hear the shows aren’t coming back especially OLTL they were so interesting.

WATCHED BOTH THESE SHOWS SINCE DAY ONE !! THEY WERE PART OF MY LIFE !!

ABC MADE A CRUCIAL MISTAKE CANCELLING THEM.. HATE THE CHEW…

THOUGHT PP BROUGHT A NICE TOUCH TO THE SHOWS WITH THE ADDED ADULT CONTENT…

SUCKS IF THEY NEVER COME BACK ……

Networks are just foolish not to get OLTL back on the air. It had better ratings than GH before the Soap resurgence. So now it should hit it out of the ball park!

‘The Bachelor’ New Key Art Revealed Playing Up Colton Underwood’s Virginity

The upcoming season of The Bachelor does not roll out till January, when season 23 gets underway on the 7th of that month, but ABC today released its key art first poster for promotion of their latest ‘Bachelor’ Colton Underwood.

Chris Harrison host and EP of the series, posted via Instagram: “It’s now officially official and I have the official exclusive poster to prove it. Colton’s dramatic season of #TheBachelor premieres Mon Jan 7th.”

The poster has the slogan: “What does he have to lose?” and one would assume its a nod to Colton’s noted and much discussed virginity.

Courtesy/ABC

Viewers first met Colton in Becca Kufrin’s season 14 of The Bachelorette, where he came in as fourth runner-up.  He continued on the franchise on Bachelor In Paradise, and his controversial on and off again relationship with Tia Booth, Becca’s friend.

Just how will Colton handle kissing a bevy of ladies, the fantasy suites, and more?  Guess we will find out,and if his season will be a doozy compared to the lackluster season of Arie Luyendk Jr., until Arie dumped his choice for love Becca and went back on his word and fell back in love with the runner-up  – his now fiancee and expectant mother of his chid, Lauren Burnham.

So, what do you think of the poster art for the new season of The Bachelor? Will you be checking out Colton during his effort to find true love? Comment below.

Robin Givens Tapped As Lead For OWN’s New Soapy Family Drama, ‘Ambitions’

There is a new soap in town from creator/executive producer Jamey Giddens from an idea by executive producer Will Packer, and they have found their leading lady for the ensemble cast. 

Robin Givens (last seen in the soaps on B&B and CW’s Riverdale) has been tapped to play the role of Stephanie Carlisle in Ambitions set to premiere on OWN in 2019. 

Stephanie is the wife of Atlanta Mayor Evan Lancaster (Brian White), whose true loyalty is to her own family’s prestigious law firm, where she is the latest in a long line of distinguished lawyers. Stephanie desperately wants to be in charge of the Carlisle family law firm and quietly fumes about her father Stephen’s condescending assertion that she’s simply not ready yet.

The series is billed as a multigenerational family saga centered around one woman who, having recently relocated and intent on revitalizing her marriage, finds herself going head to head with some of the most powerful and deceitful players in the city.

According to Deadline, rounding out the series regular cast are Essence Atkins (Marlon, Half and Half), Brian White (Ray Donovan, Scandal), Kendrick Cross (Acrimony), Brely Evans (Being Mary Jane) and Erica Page (Ozark, Bad Dad Rehab).

The show is currently in production in Atlanta, Georgia.

Karla Mosley Back To Work At B&B; Hunter Tylo On The Way Too?

Fans of The Bold and the Beautiful this week got some fun intel from two sources, the actresses themselves! First, Karla Mosley has returned to taping all-new episodes of the CBS daytime drama series, following her maternity leave.

That means Maya Avant will be back in action.. In an Instagram post holding a script from the series, she noted, “Back to work!!!! Having all the feels.”

Mosley gave birth in August to her daughter, Aurora Imani.   Maya was last seen on the canvas in that month as well.  No word yet if Maya’s return will also bring with it Rick Forrester (Jacob Young) who went on recurring status with the show and is off doing other projects.

In other news, looks like fan favorite Hunter Tylo (Taylor) may be back on Bold, in time for the holidays, if her tweets are any indication of that.  Having a twitter exchange with fans of the series, one who seemed disgruntled again, Tylo posted this!

This would indicate Tylo is on her way back for holiday episodes and maybe more of the soap as Taylor!  She also tweeted on the Bill, Ridge, Katie custody drama and shenanigans, “Think I need to go to go straighten these people out?”.  The thread on Hunter’s twitter page continued with a “Stay Tuned” GIF and more.

So, excited to see Maya and Taylor back on the canvas at The Bold and the Beautiful? What would you like to see happen for the characters in story? Comment below.
