  • Where does Robin get her info? She had tweeted in the past Prospect only wants people under 50. HA

    • Jewell I would assume that she is one who will be taping on the new sets, her tape time changed, she has been ill maybe just misunderstood her email?? cold meds will do that to ya LOL 🙂

    • Elizabeth

      It was Jennifer Bassey who tweeted that, not Robin Strasser.

  • I hope that the writer will finally tell the fate of Victor Lord Junior and the crazy woman who is holding him prisoner. I can’t wait to see the return of All My Children and One Life To Live. Good luck in April 2013.

    I wonder if Prospect Park will put up with Robin’s hotline and at times the trouble it starts?

    • Zelka

      the hotline wasn’t the problem. the problem was that someone misconstrued what was said on the hotline.
