(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — As we previously reported, Robin Strasser announced earlier this month that, due to impending back surgery, she would be forced to leave "One Life to Live," where she has played fan favorite Dorian Lord off and on for nearly thirty years, before the show is scheduled to wrap production in mid-November. Now Strasser reveals the date she will tape her final scenes for the show, putting a sense of finality on one of Llanview's most legendary characters. Sounding upbeat, the outspoken soap vet again took to her Twitter page last Friday to announce "HONORABLE DISCHARGE JUST SIGNED AND FAXED. Mutually agreed to, I will tape my last show July 1. I look forward to my life AFTER 'One Life.'" And while it has been speculated that Dorian and her new hubby David (Tuc Watkins), who is returning to Llanview in late June, will leave the show together, Strasser...
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — In a move that should surprise no one, Tuc Watkins will be returning to "One Life to Live" for the umpteenth time this summer as his onscreen alter ego David Vickers Buchanans comes back to Llanview fresh from taping his biopic "Vicker Man," to settle into married life with Mayor Dorian Lord (Robin Strasser). That's right, Watkins is making another world-wind trip to the "One Life" revolving door. The actor began filming his scenes several weeks ago, which was recently confirmed by both Strasser, and Jim Romanovich (President of Worldwide Media and Entertainment) who tweeted on May 20 that, while he was visiting the "One Life" studios, he saw "Tuc Watkins back on 'OLTL' set. He is one of the funniest guys I have ever seen." However, like nearly all of Watkins' stints on the show, don't expect him to hang around for very long. It has been speculated...

My View of Llanivew: May 30 Edition

Monday, May 30, 2011 12:01 AM EDT
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Hate Nate? Welcome to the club. My hate of Nate didn't start on any particular date, but instead I feel it was simply an act of fate. At any rate, whenever I see him on TV, my feelings of ill will toward him cannot be contained by a flood gate. But wait, even though it's late, there's more.

Humor aside, however, I really do detest the character of Nate. His actions this past...
