But cant ABC "Require" a certain # of publicity appearances if they choose? I mean if you are under Contract to NBC and contracted to personal appearance jobs, Couldnt they face serious problems if they simply refuse just becuz the timeslot once belonged to a former Soap ?
But it doesn't sound like she was promoting GH, just her winery. So I doubt she was "forced" into this promotional appearance by GH or TPTB.

I can see both sides of the argument!

I think Robin is entitled be pissed off. Only for the mere fact that, GH could have easily been cancelled before OLTL, if the cancellations were based on things like rating instead of favoritism. I didn't see anyone from OLTL on The Chew after AMC got cancelled. (Unless I missed it because I wouldn't watch that shit-fest lol) I would guess she has a mind set of "United We Stand, United We Fall". If the roles were reversed and OLTL made it and GH was cancelled for one of those stupid shows and Robin went on that show, I am sure she would have been blast by people as well.

Then on the other hand I can see Laura Wrights side too. I mean what if ABC made her go on that show? Perhaps since she owns a winery she was the most "suitable" choice to do it! I can't blame anyone for doing appearances on shows in order to promote a part of their livelihood. Because let's face it, one day all the soaps will be gone and these people are going to have to make a living just like every other Tom, Dick and Harry who has lost their jobs!

Just noticed Robin Strasser made this tweet about Laura Wright's recent appearance on THE CHEW:

https://twitter.com/robinstrasser/status/208249886519459840

@LauraWright is WRONG praising the Chew, confusing protecting her own job with love/fun/or that bad food. 800 jobs lost when OLTL cancelled.
I'm surprised that she didn't chew Josh Duhamel (Leo, AMC) out for going on "The Chew" last week--(pun intended!) LOL. After all, it was his former soap, the one that HE claimed gave him his first real break & is so near and dear to his heart, that got whacked for "The Chew"...Way to go Josh. :shrug:

Seriously, HLN or the Emmy academy or whoever is coordinating this weekend's Emmys need to get it together and do something smart and strategic that will get at least a few extra fans to tune in: re-arrange the presenting schedule and have Robin Strasser and Laura Wright present the Outstanding Drama Series trophy together.

No, it won't save the Emmys and/or bring in millions of more viewers, but it will be a moment somewhat reminiscent of the 1994 MTV Video Music Awards when Madonna and David Letterman presented an award together.

Doubt Robin would kiss Laura on the cheeks, though. Ha
