TV Guide Magazine: Despite Viki's nine marriages, we don't think of her as an emotional fruitcake — like we do, say, with Erika Kane — or that Viki is disastrously unlucky in love. If, anything she's been a sensational partner.
Slezak: She's been very lucky in love, I think because she always marries for love. Well, except when she married Steve Burke. But other than that, she always goes into marriage with the very best of intentions. And with very real intentions. She's truly loved her men. Also, don't forget her marriage tally is high because a bunch of her husbands have died — Joe [Lee Patterson], Sloan [Roy Thinnes], Ben [Mark Derwin]. The only one she divorced over and over was Clint [Clint Ritchie].
Tune in to One Life to Live on April 26 when the show pays tribute to Slezak with a special episode.
One Life to Live’s Frank Valentini, Erika Slezak and Ron Carlivati (pictured above), along with the OLTL writing team, attended the 63rd Annual Writers Guild of America Awards this weekend. The awards were held on February 5 in New York City at the AXA Equitable Center. See more photos of Erika Slezak with the OLTL writing team after the jump!
OLTL's Robin Strasser On Viki/Dorian's Truce: "Heaven Forbid This New Friendship Becomes Permanent!"By Jillian Bowe on December 16, 2010
TV Guide Magazine: Will this Viki-Dorian friendship endure or are they just biding time between blow-ups?
Strasser:I don't think it makes for as exciting a show when they get along. I guess we could both go off and do a very funny Thelma and Louise thing — "Viki and Dorian: the Road Trip." But heaven forbid this new friendship becomes permanent! Those two ladies being at odds has always been my bread and butter. Robin Strasser will be out of a job if Viki and Dorian ever truly have a meeting of the minds! READ MORE
The once and future Countess Echo DiSavoy seems tickled pink to be back on set with costars Robin Strasser and Erika Slezak at One Life to Live. In this past Friday's online edition of the New Jersey Star-Ledger, soap legend Kim Zimmer talked about returning to OLTL, where she cut her soap operatic teeth, before going on to soaperstar status as Guiding Light's "Slut of Springfield" Reva Shayne Lewis.
Here's what Zimmer had to say about working with Strasser and Slezak again:
“But I’ll be with my old friends Robin Strasser and Erika Slezak from when I was first on the show,” she says. “Not that the scripts will have me and Erika as friends. Now that Echo’s back in Springfield, having finished with being a faux-countess, she’s there to stir up trouble — taking an interest in Erika’s husband.”
Now see there, ain't that nice? This is how all soap divas oughta get along! Why, I bet Strasser will even offer to invite Zimmer and Slezak over for a slumber party/chatline dish! (Snort) READ MORE
