Giving Twitter a Rest

Robin Strasser Retires from Twitter

Posted Image


Robin told fans on Saturday that she was retiring from Twitter much to the disappointment of many of her 18,000 followers, many of whom urged her to stay. While admitting that Twitter has been a difficult habit to break, she promised herself that she'd give up Twitter if her tweets exceeded her followers.

ONLY 43 #TWEETS B4 I retire my #Twitter I'LL MISS IT TERRIBLY but I made an oath-that once my #tweets exceeded my #Followers I'd make a gracious & grateful exit...Just seems stupid exceeding the number of persons in my "audience" Doesn't mean I don't love it-or won't miss y'all:)


Strasser began Twitter in 2011, when it was announced ABC had canceled OLTL. Like on her Hotline, a telephone service that allowed fans to call her and listen to her speak to them directly, Strasser discussed current events, classic movies and in general whatever was on her mind.

Frank Bartek tweeted:

We'll miss you @robinstrasser ! You are a great actress and have many entertaining tweets! I've watched you since OLTL, and enjoyed you on Coach, Knot's Landing, Murphy Brown, and Passions. Dorian, of course, was my favorite character of yours.


Strasser replied:
Quote:
 
#DorianCramerLordCallisonHayesBuchanan have I remembered them correctly Frank? She married some-loved others-Felt #DorianLord was her rightful name! A self-loathing narcissist, a status seeking shopaholic without boundaries-I adored playing her--She was my favorite too;-)


In recent weeks, Strasser had been missing from Twitter but returned earlier this month. She confided to having "heavy family issues." She reminded fan followers to continue to be advocates for good storytelling and daytime dramas.
Quote:
 
#SOAPS need all the advocates they can get! Don't give up hope-but DO something! Advocacy requires ACTION...How did #theSpew stay on for 7 yrs? 7?! #CorpThink's $marter than that-KEEP IT UP FANS:) Good STORY-TELLING's always a good investment...

Bring Back Vladia (Murphy Brown)

Bring Back Murphy Brown's Russian Counterpart--Vladia!



Posted Image


Back on the "Bring Vladia to Murphy Brown" train. It can't be said enough that with the return of "Murphy Brown" being prompted by the current political climate--integrating Russia into the reboot is a natural fit. Hey what if Murphy's son falls for Vladia's daughter, a Russian spy trying to entrap the president? Just sayin'... the potential is there along with a history to support it, which always makes the best kind of show. Robin Strasser is also willing to come back as Vladia and return to New York where the CBS comedy is filmed. Don't know if it is still the case, but Strasser previously announced that she was represented by Mavrick Talent Agency. If anyone cares to do so, writing a letter to show creator/writer Diane English and CBS is also a way to support Strasser.

Strasser Posts an Important Message to Fans

Strasser Tweets Fans to Ask for Help if They Need It

Robin Strasser tweeted to her fans: "Ask for help...you don't have do this alone." Her posts were in light of news that fashion designer Kate Spade was found dead in her apartment of what appears to be a suicide. Strasser also posted information about resources for help:

Life Line (Suicide Prevention Hotline):
You are enough. If you find yourself struggling, remember that the Lifeline is here for you, 24/7, at 1-800-273-TALK (8255)

Black Dog Institute (see information below)

"May God bless the soul of #KateSpade," Strasser wrote," and help her family and friends deal with their loss..."

Strasser has told fans in the past that her father, Martin Strasser, was a WW2 veteran who took his life. When the actress left One Life to Live in 2011, members of this board contributed to Life Line in his honor. (Robin Says Thank You.)

Dorian faces her demons and greatest fears once again as Llanview is met with severe weather and she is forced to take cover; but there is more to face after the storm has passed. Dorian, Ray, Viki, Langston, Starr, Lola, Moe, Noelle.

Author's comment: This was my first true One Life to Live fanfic and is my favorite to go back and read again. I used a lot of symbolism in it and really delved into Dorian's psyche and relationships. I think it is an easy read if you're looking for something between a short story and a novel!
