’s” (ex-Dorian Lord) is known for being very open on regarding the cancelation, revival, and then shelving of “.” While most of the other “One Life” actors have decided to remain more tight-lipped, Strasser has often taken to the social media site to make her feelings known.

Earlier today on Twitter, she revealed that she recently asked Productions to pay out the balance of her one-year contract. According to Strasser, she only worked and was paid for eleven weeks before production was halted, despite signing on for a year. “#PPP sed w/ due respect: NO,” Strasser tweeted. She explained that legally Productions had in their contracts that if the show ceases production, then the company isn’t required to pay out the rest of the agreed-upon salaries. “Ergo: shelved = no dough for many,” Strasser continued.

Still, Strasser said “I LOVE #PPP OR any entity that goes the DISTANCE for #OLTL #AMC.” When a fan responded that Prospect Park not paying out her contract was horrible, Strasser even defended their decision. “NO it’s BUSINESS…and it’s called Show Business…I applaud smart producers- as long as they don’t ‘give me the business’ LOL.”

But the former Dorian Lord isn’t giving up on seeing “OLTL” back on the air somewhere. She even offered up a possible solution to the current legal drama between ABC and Prospect Park. “#ABC & #PPP negotiate compromise – #AMC #OLTL back on network – PP gets fair $hare MAGIC?” She even admitted that if ABC were to “get smart again,” she’d return to the show on recurring status.

Strasser’s tweets in full are below.

    The one thing that made OLTL so great was the legendary actresses on the show. Through the years, viewers got the pleasure of watching brilliant performances by Erika Slezak, Judith Light, Andrea Evans, Kassie DePaiva, Jacqueline Courtney and of course, the eternally beautiful Robin Strasser. The series needs to be back, either on ABC or in syndication.

    If Robin Strasser is owed money then she could get it.Prospect Park signed her to a one year contract and unless there was something in it that said PP doesn’t owe anything because they suspended production and they only have to pay her for when she worked they might be screwed.

    I applaud Robin Strasser for her positive attitude and determination. There is no reason for OLTL to be off the air. PP never wanted to cancel OLTL or AMC. They are dealing with a huge company that has not done a thing to help them succeed. This big mess is completely abc’s fault. I hope the people in charge will listen to Robin. We want more Dorian!

      ABC is fault for many things but it’s up to Prospect Park to pay anybody they owe money to and not ABC.Plus if they don’t pay Robin or anyone they owe money to that could hurt their image with actors.Plus now that Robin has kind of opened the door lets see how many people come forward with claims for money.

    She’ll get paid if, when, PP can extort money from ABC.

      Ha! Let’s be realistic shall we? ABC has been playing around and not following their own contract with PP from the get go. They never really wanted these shows aired anywhere. I hope they don’t get them back,because when they do,you might as well kiss AMC and OLTL goodbye.
