Robin Strasser tweets she has to leave OLTL before the end of the series!


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.

Godspeed Robin….and Bless you for your years of dedication to your character and your craft.
I hope all will be well with you….

Again Thank You !!

hi Robin, I will definitely say my prayers for you that all will be well. I had the privlege of meeting you many years ago at a fan club gathering for Judith. I remember how I made you laugh and still see it. you are so beautiful or should I say stunningly gorgeous. Please stay well. m.e. xx

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.

Robin, you are truly one of the memorable ladies of soaps.Take care of your health first and thanks for all the great years you gave your all!Your fans love you!

Robin so so sorry to here that ‘OLTL’ just will not be the same without You ! I wish God Speed to get well very very soon all my best to You !

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.

Ms. Strasser, You are a class act and I will miss your performance as Dorian Cramer, Lord, Callison, Hayes, Laurence, Vickers. Take care and the best to you out west!

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.

This was very hard to hear Robin leaving soo and with health problems. I do wish her well and hope whatever she is dealing with health wise will be a quick recovery. Robin, you are the best and one of the finest actresses to grace any stage. God bless!

We Love You Madly, Robin! Please Feel Better! 🙂 🙂

‘The Talk’ Renewed For 15th and Final Season to End in December; Does Its Cancellation Make Room for ‘The Gates’?

Things just got very interesting over at CBS daytime with the announcement today that The Talk is going to end its run on the network after its 15th season, and that season looks to be shortened as the series will come to its conclusion in December of 2024.

In a joint statement, Amy Reisenbach, President, CBS Entertainment and David Stapf, President, CBS Studio, shared, “The Talk broke new ground when it launched 14 years ago by returning daytime talk to CBS with a refreshing and award-winning format. Throughout the years, it has been a key program on CBS’ top rated daytime line-up as it brought timely, important and entertaining topics and discussions into living rooms around the globe.”

Reisenback and Stapf added, “It goes without saying that hosting and producing a year-round talk show is no easy task, and we express our sincere gratitude to our amazing hosts Akbar Gbajabiamila, Amanda Kloots, Natalie Morales, Jerry O’Connell and Sheryl Underwood, our Executive Producer/Showrunner Rob Crabbe and the hardworking producing team and crew.

Giving props to those who co-hosted or worked on the show through the years including: Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen Moonves, Carrie Ann Inaba Leah Ramimi, Marissa Janet Winokur, Holly Robinson Peete, Eve, Aisha Tyler, and Sharon Osbourne, the joint statement added, “We also want to acknowledge our former show hosts and colleagues who contributed throughout the seasons. We truly appreciate the skill, creativity, and dedication everyone involved brought to the show every day.  And of course, we thank the numerous guests who appeared, and the millions of viewers who tuned in daily. For the final season, we plan to celebrate the show and give it the proper sendoff it deserves when it concludes in December 2024.”

While no firm decision or announcement has been given at this time, it seems most likely that The Talk’s time slot could be given to the new soap opera in development The Gates from CBS Studio Ventures and from longtime soap opera writer. Michele Val Jean.  As previously reported, The Gates features the lives of a wealthy Black family who reside in a posh, gated community.

The Talk was originally the brainchild of Sara Gilbert, who had developed the show when it launched back 2010 and it replaced the beloved As the World Turns which went off the air after 54 years when CBS canceled it.

So, what do you think of The Talk being canceled? Will this make room for The Gates to begin to air in its spot beginning in 2025? Share your reactions to the news via the comment section.
