Thank you Michael! I am never going to get over the loss of OLTL! Heartbreaking! I am still in disbelief and the thought of going through this again in September. I wish the best for all involved with OLTL! They have been awesome! I am really going to miss them so much! They have been a part of my life since the 60’s. Reality will really set in on Monday the 16th! UNBELIEVABLE!

All of this is so sad, Today on one life to live when vicki was talking during the end of fraternity row,I cried ,erika slezak has made me cry so many times I will miss her ,all the wonderful stories ,the insane stories, the love ,the hate, the fighting ,This is not going to be easy,saying goodbye never is,the thought of never seeing this cast together in this wonderful place called landview ,Im at a loss for words,to explain how I feel.Its like your reading a good book then it comes to the end and you feel a little sad,that its over,this book in landview with so many pages has been open for 43 years,I still cant believe that tomorrow at this time ,the book closes,its over ,the end.

Did you know Erika Slezak herself said recently that a soap is like a good book that you never finish? It never ends & that is so true-every day is a new exciting chapter to look forward too. Haven’t we all slowed down at the end of a good book & clasped the book to our chests after the final page, feeling the emotion of it all? Why is our good book of OLTL ending tomorrow? WHY?

I can’t begin to tell you how sad I am that the show is ending I have been there from the beginning, and for it to end this way is so upsetting not only for myself, the fans, the cast, and crew members. With so many people losing their jobs this is just another example of the mighty dollar winning. I want to thank of you for the great job you have done over the years Erika Selezak you are a great actress and will be missed, and far as Michael you are one of the lucky ones to go onto GH (I already watch that show my cousin Tony Geary is on it) Best of luck to all the cast and crew.

I’m extremly sad as well, Mad too…….This is sooooooooo wrong. IMO the most horriffic thing ever done to Television…To destroy a program, that, Imo, happens to be the Best Soap on. I haven’t watched GH since They made every single show about Sonny..
Tony Geary was The best Actor on that Program..Love when he is on..But can’t stand the same ole Sonny, Jason Mob Garbage.. I just can’t. Same Looks, same storyline..YUK.
I think Geary Should have had never been off of that show..When he left..I did too.
I know he came back…and caught some of those episodes, But ALL ABOUT SONNY…enough……
The Last Show of OLTL is about 15 hours away…VERY VERY SAD.
I HATE FRONS AND DISNEY.

Thanks Michael!!! They could do hours of those kind of moments. It’s really sad and the end is too close. OLTL will be missed!

Maybe the next time Jeanne Cooper is out ill… Erika S could fill in for her… she would be great in that role. I do not wish any illness on Ms Cooper… just think it would be interesting.

While I feel your pain of not seeing the one of a kind dearly loved Erika Slezak every day on OLTL-girl, she is only 65 years old! Jeanne Cooper is 80! Lord, Erika is WAY too young to play Katherine. But I thought Michael Learned did a great job recently replacing Jeanne temporarily. I guess the next oldest women on Y&R would be Jill, Gloria, Niki-they are late 50s to early 60s? There is not really that many women on that show of Erika’s age.

Ooh-what if she replaced Stephanie on B&B??? Not wishing illness of her either-but give Erika a chance to play a real “B”? She could pull if off! Funny to think about. And I am desperate for something funny to think about right now.

Forgot to say… thank you Michael for the best soapy site! While we are sad to see our stories go… this is the best place to come and find content and share with like minded people who love the genre and it all starts with you and your love and care of the genre and your fab site! Thanks again Michael!!! This has to be one of your biggest weeks for hits!

Michael… why don’t you do your favorite OLTL moments over the 40+ years you have been watching? That would be fun for all of us. Why doesn’t ABC ask the fans their favorite moments and make a DVD of them for us to have and remember? A DVD of more of the casts favorite moments and then the fans favorites would be great. I’d pay for that! Soapnet could put out the request and compile the list and they could run those episodes on Soapnet and then make some compilations of clips.

I just read that after all of the Damage Brian Frons Has done, He is Leaving abc Disney…This Month!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

What he has done to Millions of Viewers, thousands of Actors, writers, etc with these shows..at a great Financial Loss to Those people..Many from AMC sold their homes, relocated to L.A..Then Cancelled The show.

He has destryed the Lives of many from OLTL..
I hope KARMA GETS HIM.

Do you have an address or emails where I could send a fan letter to Erika Slezak and Jerry Ver Dorn? As they’re no longer at ABC Studios I can’t send it there. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated, Thanks much!

I have dreaded this day and want time to stand still. I don’t know how I’e made it through the last two weeks, watching the final shows. I want to see the end but yet I don’t because if I don’t it won’t happen, which of course is ludicrous. I feel so bad for the people who will lose their jobs, and wish I could tell each one how sorry I am. I will miss the show so much, wil miss the characters who I have grown to love: Vickie, Clint, Bo, especially, but all the others too. God bless them all and my b est wishes go out to these wonderful actors. Thank you for they years of enjoyment you have given us all.

In one of these comments, Carol Painter said that the perpetrator of this dastardly deed is leaving ABC soon. If that is true, I hope Brian Frons is unable to ever find another job and is forced to live under a bridge and eat roadkill!

Just remember “Slick”, Karma is a bitch!!!

Remember on Monday, don’t even turn you TV to ABC! I know some might get curious about how bad the new show will be, but the best way to really stick it to the network is not to watch at all. Let’s show ABC, just how big of a mistake they made by canceling OLTL!!!

Felicity Huffman Reports To Prison To Serve Sentence For College Admissions Scandal

Former Desperate Housewives star, Felicity Huffman, reported to a federal prison to start to serve her 14-day sentence for her participation in the college admissions scandal that saw affluent parents use illegal means including bribery to get their children into elite educational institutions.

On Tuesday, Huffman surrendered herself to authorities at the low-security Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California which is said to be 35 miles east of San Francisco.  Felicity actually entered the prison facility earlier than her court-ordered date of October 25th.

Coincidentally, the prison that Huffman is serving her sentence also housed very well-known inmates including: Patty Hearst, Heidi Fleiss, and Sara Jane Moore, who attempted to assassinate President Gerald Ford in 1975.  Forbes Magazine named the facility one of America’s top 10 “cushiest” prisons back in 2009.

Unlike former Edge of Night actress, Lori Loughlin, who was also caught up in the scandal and has plead not-guilty to charges levied against her and her husband, Huffman did pleaded guilty to paying $15,000 to arrange for her daughter’s SAT score to be falsified.  In addition, Huffman was fined $30,000, and must perform 250 hours of community service and spend a year on probation.

U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling of the District of Massachusetts, who is the the supervising prosecutor, said Loughlin should expect a tougher sentence than Huffman if she is convicted during an interview on a Boston TV station expressing: “I don’t think I’d be giving away any state secrets by saying we would probably ask for a higher sentence for her than we did for Felicity Huffman.”

Felicity actually was the first parent sentenced in the entire admissions scandal that broke several months ago.

Huffman told the judge during her sentencing, “I was frightened. I was stupid, and I was so wrong.”

So, what do you think of the 14-day sentence and that Felicity is already beginning her jail time? Comment below.
