“One Life to Live’s” Robin Strasser (ex-Dorian Lord) is known for being very open on Twitter regarding the cancelation, revival, and then shelving of “OLTL.” 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 Prospect Park 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 Prospect Park 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.

After more than 25 years and over 6,450 episodes, CBS’ “The Bold and the Beautiful” will say goodbye to one of its own as Susan Flannery says farewell to the drama series when her character, Stephanie Forrester, succumbs to lung cancer on the Monday, November 26 episode. In celebration of Flannery’s tremendous career at the soap, Executive Producer and Head Writer Bradley P. Bell will Tweet live with fans via the soaps official Twitter handle @BandB_CBS.
With a lineup consisting of soaps “The Young and the Restless” and “The Bold and the Beautiful,” game shows “The Price is Right” and “Let’s Make a Deal,” and talk show “The Talk,” the home of daytime television’s most watched soap opera and broadcast game show, announced just before the Thanksgiving holiday that its daytime division is now available on Facebook.
The CBS Daytime Facebook page launches months after the network first brought the daypart into the social media age with its very active Twitter page, which now has over 7,000 followers. Both social media sites promise to bring fans of the lineup up close and personal with behind the scenes coverage of current events. Earlier today the Facebook page posted a picture of Lee Phillip Bell, co-creator of “Y&R” and “B&B,” playing the role of DJ last month as the younger soap celebrated Susan Flannery‘s final day taping at Stage 31 in the CBS Television City Studios in the role of Stephanie Forrester.
Although fans of ABC’s “General Hospital” got their first glimpse of Sean Kanan back on screen as AJ Quartermaine on the Friday, October 26 episode, they didn’t learn much about why the character had returned to Port Charles. Kanan himself may be able to shed some light when he joins fans for an upcoming live Twitter chat during the east coast broadcast of the daytime drama series.
With Monica (Leslie Charleson) appearing overjoyed after seeing at least one of her sons still alive (Jason “died” just last week), one has to wonder who else will be happy to see AJ back, if anyone, as the character (last portrayed by Billy Warlock) was killed off in a murder mystery storyline that resulted in everyone discovering it was Michael’s psychiatrist that murdered the alcoholism plagued Quartermaine back in 2005. It’s not likely Carly (Laura Wright) or Michael (Chad Duell) will be happy to see the man back in town, much less still alive, but his return will sure help drive some juicy storytelling for all of Port Charles.
As part of “ABC’s Trick or Tweet” week, which began on Wednesday, October 24, Kanan joins a number of ABC’s primetime and daytime stars as they tweet live during Halloween-inspired episodes of their shows. On Monday, October 29,From 2:00-3:00 PM ET/11:00 AM-Noon PT, Kanan will be answering questions submitted by fans who use the official #GH hashtag via his Twitter page (@SeanKanan).
Beginning Monday, September 10 ABC’s “General Hospital” moves to a new time period (2:00 PM ET/1:00 PM PT/CT) and in celebration the network is hosting a weeklong twitter chat with cast members of the drama series.
Fans of ABC’s hit drama “General Hospital” will be able to submit questions (#askgh) and receive real-time responses from fan favorites who will be on Twitter during the East Coast broadcast of the show 2:00-3:00 p.m. ET/11:00 a.m.- noon PT.
