ROBIN STRASSER, ONE LIFE TO LIVE
We didn't think at this stage in the game that anyone would need the lecture on "Why We Should Treasure Our Divas" again. But clearly, OLTL has been sleeping in class. Divas are high-maintenance. They're long-time actresses who can be, uh, challenging backstage, but on-screen are the jewels in soaps' crowns. So why did Robin Strasser get treated like cubic zirconia? Without Strasser's Dorian, grande dame Viki is left without a foil, the Cramer family has no figurehead and Llanview is left without a self-serving, manipulative center, which is just as bad as if it had lost its moral core. For now, Strasser is whipping up a storm as PASSIONS's Hecuba - but we sense fences could be mended once she finishes up there. Llanview needs its Dorian, and OLTL needs its rotten-core foundation.
