"Viki" voted "The Character You Will Miss the Most from One Life to Live!"



On last night’s OLTL Finale Special – After the Show with Michael Fairman, Michael announced the results of our final poll for One Life to Live.  And that was, “What Character You Will You Miss the Most?” And, as expected the majority voted for Victoria Lord Lord Riley Burke Buchanan Buchanan Carpenter Davidson Banks, played by Erika Slezak.  Viki received 29% of the votes!

The runner-up was Natalie Buchanan played by Melissa Archer, followed-by (in third), Victor Jr. played by Trevor St. John. Fourth place in the voting went to Tea played by Florencia Lozano, and fifth place went to Todd played by Roger Howarth.  Take note that there were only a few vote difference in these spots, and very close.

Most notable was also the comments from fans in the write-in option who informed us that it is impossible to choose since all the characters of Llanview will be missed the most! Ain’t that the truth!

Let us know what you think of the top five picks as voted on by the fans of On-Air On-Soaps and OLTL?

Really for me since Brandon Buddy left OLTL , the show lacked something really SPECIAL. The canvace was never the same without the cutest couple being together on daytime tv.
Thought it was so sad when he couldn’t return, and of course this second time after really showing interest.
I just wish ALL of them the best.

To me Vicki personified OLTL…when I thought of OLTL I thought of Vicki first. And Erika Slezak played her with poise and dignity for many years. What a wonderful actress playing a wonderful character. She and the show will be greatly missed!

i can not believe how sad and upset i am .OLTL was and is FAMILY to me
love and hugs to all of you

Going to my My Roxy ….I just loved her on Ryan’s Hope and here as well……

To all My children and One Life To live……

You have been there for me in the good times and in the bad. I worked my jobs around your time slot and when I had no choice I had my Lunch along with all of us that loves you from the heart. All the while it was being recorded on my TV.
We have long conversations in the Brake rooms and on the cashier lines. With our co workers and our customers. We cried we laughed and sometimes Shouted You Bastards! to the Villains and mostly when The News would brake for things like who’s who in Hollywood Now !!!! Woke to watch it at 3 :00 AM when it was to air what we missed . Thanks God ! I am insomniac!

In between commercials washed the dishes . Vacuumed and dusted., prep dinner As well as Nursed All Of My Children.

I even Once owned a Sliver server set on top of my Coffee table for Years ! Now its replaced with an issue of People magazine Tribute to Soap Cast All My Children. Hands OFF! unless you are a TRUE SOAP FAN.

I Learned Many Fancy Words. And dainty ways of sitting and placing my napkin. I learned how to be Strong and Bold. Learned to Check my Breast and understand that Beauty is only in the eye of the beholder.

Abstinence is best. And when you do. Make sure you don’t forget That if he Truly loves you he WILL take Care of You. But remember You are Nobody’s Fool….. As well as Its OK To Tell.

(((((( Buddy Love Hugs & Glamorous Cheeky Cheek Kisses )))))))

P. S. Yes This was proof read and posted during the Commercials…..

It is a great list. It was too hard to pick one. I would have liked to see Robin Strasser and Tuc Watkins on the list..

Viki will definitely be missed! I can only hope the Bucannons move to Port Charles too – why not, they fit in with the Quartermaines and afterall, Todd is going! Hoping they all do! Hope they take over Port Charles! I am going to miss them so much but very thankful we are at least getting a few of them – it’s better than nothing! OLTL is just my all time favorite Soap! So in love with OLTL and will never stop!

Victor LIVES!!! TNT LIVES and ROBOT GOES DOWN! Best ending EVER!!!!! Toooo Happy that we will see some of our OneLifers on GH! Toooooo Happy!

this does not surprise me at all ,she was the backbone of one life to live,the heart and soul I love her,she always was ,is my favorite .and tomorrow at 2 ,the thought of not being able to go to landview, is very depressing.

Well I will miss Viki and the rest of cast especially Natalie, Nora, Bo and Dorian. These are the few characters that stayed consistent which is what I loved. It feels really horrible and there is indeed a loss I feel today, which I wasn’t expecting as much or soon. I think our ES/Viki summed it up quite nicely so these stories /characters/actors have come to be a part of our everyday lives….. So yes there is a big void from losing so many people. My only hope is OLTL can still be saved. I only say that because with hope because I do believe of all other canceled soaps, this one left a impact on Network that soaps are still appreciated/love/wanted/desire. There was a large valuable fan viewership that was just tossed in the garbage. In this time with so many options yet we still tuned into ABC to view. How insulting but more importantly how foolish to cancel this show…. Thank you OLTL I didn’t like some of the storylines or the characters sometimes but I still hung in there with for I knew you would get back on track and you always did…….What a great ending…

I just can’t pick one character. I will miss Bo so very much. He was not always given a lot of action, but he has so much heart. I thought Robert S. Woods gave the best performance of anyone on the last show. And if it wasn’t really a performance, if it was all coming naturally from the heart, so much the better. Tuc Watkins’ David was a delight. I will miss the character Brody. Besides being very good looking, when he was mentally fit he was just a good guy. Really it’s the interactions between the characters that makes the show so wonderful. One character I miss very much is Evangeline. Such a shame they killed her instead of keeping her in a coma, so maybe if the show continues in some way she can come back. How can we have John go off without Nataie and his son. And that baby has got to be the cutest boy i’ve ever seen. I love Sean, such a warm, softie, but no pushover. I could go on and on.

Trevor I think you did Todd the best!! You had the moves, facial expressions and I just think you played it perfect. I know the long die hard fans watched Roger back and he’s okay but he is certainly no Trevor St. John. Thank you for all the years you played such a wonderful Todd

We Always Will Love Viki & OLTL Forever & Ever Here In Evanston, Illinois!! 😀 😀


REPORT: Matthew Atkinson Back to The Bold and the Beautiful

When we last saw The Bold and the Beautiful’s Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson), he headed out of Los Angeles with his son, Douglas (Henry Joseph Samiri) and headed to Paris. The decision to leave was prompted by Hope (Annika Noelle) turning down his marriage proposal once again, and by prodding from his sister, Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood).

Many Thope fans have wanted to see Hope and Thomas reunite and figure out where to take their relationship next, but he has been nowhere insight, and so has his portrayer, Matthew Atkinson.

However, in a new report from Soap Hub, their sources indicate that Atkinson will be back on screen next month by mid-June. In a tease, Atkinson posted a photo on his Instagram story (which has since disappeared, since IG story posts only stay up for 24 hours), where he was pointing at a TV screen behind him that showed Carter (Lawrence Saint-Victor) and Eric (John McCook) in a scene. No telling the true meaning of that snap, but it could be he is back at the show.

As Hope and Finn (Tanner Novlan) are getting closer, the timing could just work out in the most dramatic way if Thomas were to return. Since Hope and Finn are bonding over their parents, Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) and Deacon’s (Sean Kanan), upcoming nuptials, will the doctor and the designer hit the sheets and Thomas walks in on it?

Now let us know, when Thomas returns do you want to see him reconcile things with Hope, or do you want him back to the obsessed Thomas of the past who hatched plots to get what he wanted? Comment below.

General Hospital

General Hospital’s Maurice Benard Defends Sonny Going Postal, “It Could Definitely Happen”

Last Friday’s May 17th cliffhanger of General Hospital saw Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) beating up Dex (Evan Hofer) and threatening to shoot and kill both Dex and Jason (Steve Burton), who is restraining him outside the ballroom at the wedding reception of Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) and Chase (Josh Swickard).

For months, Sonny has been taking less than his prescribed dosage of medication to control his bipolar disorder.  The mobster has no idea that he has been duped by Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart), who is the one that set this dangerous situation in motion, in an effort to eliminate Sonny and eventually Jason from interfering in Pikeman taking over the territory.

One fan questioned the validity of Sonny’s reaction to Dex and Jason after the pei, when he took to X and expressed, “People off their medications don’t necessarily go around hitting people and being out of control. This was the WRONG message to send. I don’t expect anything from Frank Valentini and General Hospital anymore, but you could’ve (and should’ve) stopped it cold.”

Maurice Benard replied back to that comment and defended the actions of Sonny given the circumstances. The three-time Daytime Emmy-winner shared, “This is true but when you have a character like Sonny who’s volatile and is drinking and is manic and his thoughts are taken him over it could definitely happen like I said, ‘bipolar ain’t pretty.”‘

GH has portrayed Sonny’s battle with mental illness and the importance of keeping on your meds, plus the issues surrounding it for years. However, some fans have not been pleased by this latest plot point.


The pick-up of the story begins tomorrow on Monday, May 20th where teasers for the episode share: Sonny is horrified. Blaze consoles Kristina (who walked in on her dad threatening Jason and Dex) and Jason summons Carly.

So, what did you think of the plot point of Sonny threatening to kill Dex and Jason, after beating up Dex, given his growing paranoia? Comment below.
