Oh no! Say it isn’t so! The amazing Robin Strasser (Dorian) of One Life to Live took to twitter just a few hours ago and announced that due to unforseen health reasons she will have to exit Llanview as Dorian sooner than later, and before the end of the series!

Strasser tweeted: “I’ll have to leave OLTL sooner than the cancellation date, for compelling health reasons. Unable 2 meet high standards I owe our great show.  BUMMER! Darn right. WISDOM indicates a GRACE-full exit, before I fall on my bum. “Always leave ’em laughin”. With Tuc and luck, hope I will!”

We just can’t imagine Robin gone from the final episode, but who knows? Maybe they can pre-tape some of her scenes.  Don’t know, but no one in the soap business has given their all like La Strasser!  And, health should be her first priority.  Stay tuned.

Hopefully Robin Strasser will read all the post that are sure to follow this article. Please find some way to be there for the final shows. You will be greatly missed if your are absent from the final days of this wonderful show.

That is terrible news. I pray she gets well, and that she can somehow return for the final scenes. Robin is definitely the MVP of the show. I have had the pleasure of meeting her in person at a fan club event. I was so nervous to meet her, but she was one of the warmest actresses I have ever met. She elevates every scene she is in. I am still bummed she didn’t get nominated this year. I hope they write her an amazing exit. I hope that somehow we get to see more of Robin in the future.

wow, I can’t imagine the last OLTL with out Robin. It has to be serious for her to exit early. I’m sure she would have stuck it out to the end otherwise. I really hope things go well for her healthwise.

She wants to leave em laughing – Dorian/David – let’s hope so.

I hope before Robin leaves that they’ll find a way to bring Anthony Call back to share some scenes with her. Herb and Dorian had the most wonderful multi-layered chemistry which went on for years even when the characters were no longer married. So I hope they find a way for them to cross paths again before the show ends. tony and robin were amazing acting partners.

I hope whatever health issues she has, they improve and she will be very missed as will all the AMC and OLTL casts. She gave her all to that show.

Mishael Morgan Reveals Why She’s Taken ‘A Bit of a Step Back’ From Y&R and Gone on Recurring Status

This past June, we all celebrated the groundbreaking victory of The Young and the Restless‘ Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair) as the first Black actress to ever win in the Lead Actress in a Drama Series category during the 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

In the months that followed, Mishael has not been seen as much on the top-rated CBS daytime drama, plus when fans noticed she was no longer in the opening main credits, it got them wondering just what is Morgan’s status with the show.

Finally today, via video on her Instagram story, Mishael shared some news after finishing her day of taping in Genoa City.

The Emmy-winner revealed she has indeed gone on recurring status with the show: “I just wrapped my last scenes back at Y&R, and I just wanted to let the cat out of the bag a little bit.  A lot of people have noticed that my name is not on the main credits anymore, and I wanted everybody to know that it was my decision.  I decided, actually, back in December, that I wanted to take a bit of a step back from the show.  I just felt like at this point in my life and this point in my career, I wanted to mix things up a little bit. But Y&R will always be home. I have so appreciated this safe place to land that they have given me, so I know that I can be back. They are like family to me, and coming back just reminds me of that.”

Morgan also thanked the loyal viewers and her followers expressing, “I’m so appreciative of you guys, and all the fans who have supported me along this Y&R journey. But I’m still on it, I’m still going to be recurring, so you’ll still catch me in Genoa City.”

The talented star ended with a tease of projects and roles to come, telling her fans to, “Keep looking out for new things.”

So will you miss not seeing Mishael as much on Y&R?  Are you exciting to see what roles and projects she gets involved with next? Are you glad she is still recurring with the show and will continue to make appearances in stories? Comment below.

GH’s Nancy Lee Grahn Shares Excerpt From Her Upcoming Memoir

In celebration of beginning her 27th year as Alexis Davis on General Hospital, two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, decided to mark the occasion by revealing to her longtime fans an excerpt from her upcoming memoir due out in 2023.

Taking to her official Facebook page, Nancy shared the excerpt starting with contained some of the back-history of her soap opera alter-ego : “I play the role of Alexis Davis. I am a public defender, prosecutor, personnel injury, civil, malpractice, tax and family attorney. I am the bastard child of Mikos Cassadine who died after being thrown into his own weather machine which he designed to freeze the world. My mother, Kristen Bergman was a famous opera singer whose throat was slit by my father’s wife, Helena. Unhappy with the turn of events, I hurled my frail 75 year old stepmother off a five hundred foot parapet slamming her onto jagged rock only for her to walk away unscathed. Even more determined, I shoved her off a thousand foot cliff into the frigid subzero ocean. Helena not only survived unscathed, she apparently scaled 1000 feet up the cliff and continued to wreak havoc on Port Charles.”

Nancy closed the excerpt with some special acknowledgements: “Always so grateful to have an ongoing contract, my own parking space and people I’ve never met who come up to me regularly and tell me how much younger I look in person. It’s a gift that I have been able to and still get to do what I love to do for such a gloriously long time. I love my job the most because it is the job that gave me the security I needed to greenlight Kate as a single mother, raise her while being able to give her the things I dreamed of giving her, put her through school all the way through college, and will hopefully allow me to spoil my grandchildren. The enormous love & gratitude I have for ABC and Disney for allowing me the privilege of working for them is immeasurable. But the real truth is without the support from all of you, this day would not be what it is. As always, I see you and thank you.”

Make sure to read the entire excerpt.  Now let us know, are you looking forward to what Nancy will share in her upcoming memoir? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
