CourtesyFOX

Get ready One Life to Live fans, tonight on Monday April 16th at 9PMEST/8PMCST, six-time Daytime Emmy winner, Erika Slezak (Viki, OLTL) makes her return to television in a guest-starring role on Fox’s new medical drama, The Resident.

The Resident also stars some very familiar soapy faces including: Emily Van Camp (Ex-Emily, Revenge) and Melina Kanakaredes (Ex-Eleni, GL). Tonight’s episode is entitled “Haunted” and in the log lines for it, the series relates: “Conrad is hit by a bike and badly sprains his ankle, but works through it when he takes the case of his old medical professor, who is hallucinating visions of her old patients. Devon is tasked with admitting Conrad, who refuses any sort of treatment. Nic tries to navigate her emotions while mourning the loss of a patient and Bell operates on a foreign dignitary with unforeseen complications. Meanwhile, Lane and Bell’s relationship grows closer.”

Erika plays Dr. Eileen Jacoby.

So glad you posted this. I had not even heard of the show. It was so great to see Erika Slezak and be reminded why she won so many emmys. I would highly recommend watching this episode, and I am going to start watching regularly. I would love to see Erika as a series regular-and if not on this show, then another. Made me cry.

Matt Czurchy also enjoy-used to watch him on the good wife, and Emily Van Camp-used to watch her on Brothers and Sisters-which was a pretty good show and abruptly cancelled. Melina- I remember her from another show-not GL-what was that? Anyway, Erika looks beautiful and can still act with the best of them.

Loved Matt on the Gilmore Girls. Also watched Emily on Brothers and Sisters; great show. She then went on to star in Revenge…a complete departure from B&S. Another great show.

Couldn’t get into The Resident from this one episode. I checked it out only only to see Erika. Loved seeing her but won’t be tuning back in. Shame because I love the other actors mentioned but it just didnt hook me.

You and I are thinking the same, Phyllis. I love the show!

Hello, Boop. I want to love the show. I enjoy medical dramas. Tuned in for Erika-was mostly focused on her-will tune in again as great cast-I need to figure out who is whom and so forth-how long has it been on? Maybe I can find the other episodes and catch up.
Larkin-thanks! I loved Providence.

One show I will not be tuning back into-and found it demeaning, depressing, and demoralizing- Are you smarter than a 5th grader? Apparantly not. Who knew the tongue was an organ? Have you ever heard of a tongue transplant-if you have-please-keep it to yourself. Just kidding. None of my answers made the cut. Thank goodness my final answer-click click on the remote-solved the problem. Wow. that is still blowing what obviously little brain matter I have left. Perhaps I should brave another episode or two to see if any rehab is possible. Brutal.

Wow! Melina not the sweet good girl anymore-at all! Love it. Love the high-level machinations and back-stabbing. Can’t wait for next week.

I’m glad she’s finally getting some work since she’s one of the best and always gave nuanced performances on OLTL.

It was so great to see Erika Slezak again. As usual, she gave an excellent performance. I hope the cashing people of other shows wise up and use her more often. She is a natural.

It was wonderful to see her again. there was a nice little blip when the doctor said she had worked for “40 years.” Most likely a wink to OLTL because she was there for almost 41 years. I’ve been waiting for this episode for several weeks so it made my night.
I hope maybe she’l be back on for an episode nest season. or on something else. She’s still a good actress.

It was SO good to see her in a new episode of something. This was such an imaginative role and I know she enjoyed performing it. I sure enjoyed watching. Now, her character just needs to come back to the hospital to teach and share her immense knowledge. Then we will get to see her on a more regular basis. She is so missed.

Kelly Ripa Shares Her Grief and Remembrances of John Callahan on ‘Live with Kelly and Ryan’

There was always something special about the wonderful actors and the cast pictured here from ABC’s All My Children.  After all, this is where Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) met her husband, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo) and where Eva LaRue (Ex-Maria) met her ex-husband John Callahan (Ex-Edmund).

Then, over this past weekend this family picture from Pine Valley was forever changed, when the soap world was rocked by the news that John Callahan passed away at only 66/

Heartbreaking remembrances poured in on social media …. and none more so than from Eva LaRue, who also shares a daughter with John, named Kaya.  Eva and Kaya rushed to John’s bedside where he has been put on life-support following a reported massive stroke.

Now on Monday’s episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan, which is being done remotely from the hosts individual hosts due to the coronavirus pandemic, Kelly Ripa shared her grief over the loss of her dear friend John Callahan with Ryan.

Kelly said “I had a really a bad weekend this weekend.  A very dear friend of mine for many, many years, almost 30 years, passed away over the weekend. He was a great actor, a really good friend. One of the funniest people I’ve ever met. He was the ex-husband of my first-born son’s godmother, Eva LaRue. His name was John Callahan. He was 66 years old—way too young to be taken from us.”

Ripa went on to to tell her co-host: “A gentleman of, I mean, Ryan, you two would have loved each other. He would say the funniest things and we were all going through our brains about all of the funny, like the funny ‘Callahan-isms’ over the years. He was just one of these guys and you know and he just died way too soon. His daughter and my daughter are good friends, they’re the same age and I just want everyone to know, Eva and Kaya, that we are thinking of you and we are just so sad and so devastated. So, I apologize in advance if I seem out of it. I really actually am, I’m terribly out of it. You know, forgive me for it.”
