20 December 12th, 2011 Robin Strasser and Robert Woods Added as Guests on “The View’s Salute to OLTL”!

Thank Goodness, The View had the forethought to include (and not forget, because that would have have been a HUGE mistake) the incomporable Robin Strasser (Dorian) to their tribute show on One Life to Live!

It will be great to see Robin and Erika Slezak (Viki), who is slated as the episode’s special co-host, reunited on The View Salutes One Life to Live airing January 13th just a few hours before the final episode of OLTL airs across the county!

In addition, another stellar One Life star, Robert S. Woods (Bo Buchanan) has also been added to the line-up!  We had also heard via Twitter from Hillary B. Smith (Nora Buchanan) last week that she would also be appearing on the episode.  So, get out your hankies for this one folks!  And, we will keep you posted over the next few weeks as the line-up for the show continues to evolve!

    Hats off to The View for getting “it” right… too bad ABC can’t do the same and renew One Life To Live!

    She is kind of like fireworks isn’t she? Love it! Wish Tuc Watkins would be on the show with her.

    Very good! It would be great to see the actors who play Tina, Cord, Alex, Gabrielle, Max, Todd, Blair, Victor, Tea, Starr, Matthew, Rex, Gigi, Clint, Troy, Lindsey and Nigel all on there also.
    I seriously hope that Dorian taped for the last episode somehow. I wish it was a surprise that none of us would know about and would be surprised about. I can dream.

    It means a lot to me as a Dorian Lord and Robin Strasser fan to see her on the last day OLTL airs since she will not be in the finale. Awesome news!

    I so enjoyed The View’s tribute to AMC, and I look forward to their tribute episode to One Life To Live. I am sure it will be spectacular, as I enjoy everyone on that show. I am happy that TBTB at The View had the insight to invite Robin Strasser, as when you say One Life To Live, Robin and Erika are the first two that come to mind. I am happy that Bo and Nora will also be on. I hope Michael Easton and others are on the show as well. I honestly still cannot wrap my head around the fact that this wonderful show will soon be – no more.

    It’s disturbing having to say goodbye because the stories are really getting good these days. Unlike Guiding Light and All My Children who were nothing more than shadows of their former selves during their final years, One Life to Live is still the same great soap that we have come to enjoy over the past 25 years.

    I could not agree more. I had pretty much quit watching GL, ATWT & AMC by the time they went off the air but I was very upset to lose them because you can always go back to them when they “cycle through” & get good again. Just to know they are still there & I still kept up with them even if I wasn’t watching daily. But I have never lost a show that was FANTASTIC every single day, a show that I never, ever miss & sometimes even watch again at night on Soapnet. Losing OLTL will be a huge loss in my daily life & I dread it so much. There are dozens of exciting things that we will never see, never know. I love everyone on that show & will miss it more than I can say.

    I enjoy watching ‘The View’. So glad to read of the salute by them to OLTL cast and farewell show. Marking it on my calender as a MUST WATCH! (((*_*))) ~ It is so sad that ABC’s Soap Operas are now ‘a thing of the past’. I sooo agree {with other fans} that see the solution is for OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) to research the dollars, sponsorship, and cost of making her OWN ‘high definition’ will blow-up her network ratings and our favorite soap can remain on television. Hail Hail to cable!!!!!
