I was slowly making changes, corrections (due to incompatible codes) and additions but I've halted that until the board is converted to Tapatalk.... In short, there is work going on behind the scenes to keep this board for fans. This update is to let you know that you may visit soon and the site will look different. Hang in there!!! I am not going anywhere if I can help it.... DIVA was created in 2006. Be sure to check out Celebrating 10 YEARS of DIVA.... Robin Strasser is currently represented by Mavrick Artists ...

Celebrating 10 YEARS of DIVA

Posted Image YEARS Somewhere around April 22, 2006, I began creating this board with the intent of opening it by Robin Strasser's birthday on May 7th. Really, there was little doubt as to what I would call it as Ms. Strasser as Dorian Lord is the quintessential DIVA. It seemed Divine Providence when on May 6, 2006 Ms. Strasser made the comment below on a Soapography:
Quote:
 
Yes, thank you. I am a diva. And a diva if you look at the Latin root of the word is about being close to the divine, not about excluding other people and energy from what it is that makes you shine, OK?

Posted ImageAmen. DIVA is a gateway for her fans to discuss, support and celebrate Ms. Strasser's incredible work that has spanned several decades. I didn't create the DIVA board alone. I had help from Christy(RSRocks) and Beth(RSfan83). Christy had a Dorian videos website and Beth had been a longtime collector of magazine articles and photos that featured Ms. Strasser. With their help I was able to feature videos and photos as I built the board. When DIVA finally opened on May 7th, I was elated when I got word that Ms. Strasser had seen the board, liked it and bestowed her appreciation. That was cool, but the coolest was talking to fans who enjoyed Dorian and supported Ms. Strasser as much as I did.

Over time, I've written features on co-stars, built forums for fan fictions, fan interviews, music videos, and created a DIVA channel on Youtube and a Home page on Google. Even though One Life to Live is no longer on the air, I've not stopped in my devotion to following Ms. Strasser and having a place for her fans to visit for up-to-date happenings related to the actress or soap world. In my opinion, it's the least I can do for the entertainment Ms. Strasser has provided me, especially during times of despair that we all face in life. So CHEERS to 10 years and GOOD WISHES for 10 and many more. Thank you to all who have contributed to the board's existence and continuation but most importantly, your support of Ms. Strasser. A special SHOUT OUT to the most active board participants and contributors:

You're welcome. Thank you too for your contributions, especially the fan fic, The Darkened Glass, which is a personal favorite.

Tribute to Robin Strasser
"I've worked with many a fine actress in the course of my journey, but none more remarkable than Ms. Strasser. Brilliant and utterly brave, with the work ethic of a warrior. I would love to come back and work with her again." - A Martinez, OLTL Examiner, 12/09
