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.

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!

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… Read more »

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.

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!!

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.

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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

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.

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!

‘Port Charles’ Star Jay Pickett Dead at 60

UPDATED:  Just heartbreaking news over the weekend.  Former Port Charles star and soap veteran, Jay Pickett died suddenly while filming a movie.  His cause of death was not immediately known, although in a post on Sunday from Travis Mills it appears to have been from a heart attack. Pickett was 60-years-old.

In addition to his most remembered role on daytime as Frank Scanlon on the GH spinoff, Port Charles, where he appeared in over 762 episodes, Pickett also appeared on GH replacing Ted King as Lorenzo Alcazar and came back to the show in 2006-07 in the recurring role of Detective David Harper.  Jay also spent time on Days of our Lives as Dr. Chip Lakin and appeared on primetime’s Desperate Housewives and Queen Sugar countless other TV series and films.

Word of Pickett’s death first came via Facebook from Jim Heffel who is the film’s co-producer, who shared along with these images (see below): “Yesterday I lost a good friend and the world lost a great person. Jay Pickett decided to ride off into the Heavens. Jay died sitting on a horse ready to rope a steer in the movie Treasure Valley in Idaho. The way of a true cowboy. Jay wrote the story and starred in it. He was also coproducer with myself and Vernon Walker. He will be truly missed. Ride like the wind partner.”

Michael Dietz, who played Pickett’s on-screen brother, Joe Scanlon on Port Charles shared his grief on the news on Facebook, expressing: “My greatest friend has sadly left this world. We met when we were cast as brothers on Port Charles many, many years ago. He played my big brother on TV but that carried over into real life and an amazing friendship that was one of a kind. He was an incredible husband, father, friend, and godfather to my daughter. Everyone that knew him loved him. I love you, Jay. Keep smiling my friend. All my love to his family, who truly became our family as well. You will be forever missed.”

Kin Shriner (Scott, GH) and Jay’s former co-star at Port Charles shared: “The sudden passing of my pal Jay Pickett Is very sad . He loved acting and Westerns , and when we got together we laughed a lot . R.I.P. Jay”

Kelly Monaco (Ex-Livvie, PC and now Sam, GH) shared on her Instagram:  “My heart goes out to the family and friends of Jay Pickett. If you knew him, you loved him. Words can’t describe…”

Travis Mills from the film Treasure Valley, in which Pickett was filming at the time of his death, shared on Sunday morning this updated message on Facebook: “Many of you have already heard about the tragedy that happened two days ago. Jay Pickett, our leading man, writer, producer, and creator of this movie passed away suddenly while we were on location preparing to film a scene. There is no official explanation for the cause of his death but it appears to have been a heart attack. Everyone present tried as hard as they could to keep him alive. Our hearts are broken and we grieve for his family who are so devastated by this shocking tragedy.  As so many of us know, Jay was an incredible man. He was kind, sweet, and generous. He was one of the best actors I ever worked with and it was an honor to collaborate with him. Everyone who met him, even for the briefest moment, could feel his warmth, his wonderful spirit. It is difficult to find the words right now to say more. His closest friends have said that he was very happy making Treasure Valley and my hope is that he truly was. He was doing what he loved: acting, riding horses, making movies. And he was magnificent.”

Jay is survived by his wife, Elena, and their three children, Maegan, Michaela and Tyler.

We will have more on this continuing story as remembrances for Pickett are shared, and updated on news of his passing.
