The cast and crew of ONE LIFE TO LIVE celebrate Erika Slezak's (Viki)
30th anniversary with the show by throwing a party at a Manhattan restaurant on
March 15th, and then enjoying some speeches and a cake on the set on March 16th.
"The time has gone by like that," marveled Slezak with a snap of her fingers.
SAVE YOUR QUARTERS
A representative from Mayor Rudy Giuliani's
office proclaimed it "Erika Slezak Day" which prompted Slezak to quip, "No
parking tickets all day!"
THE NEW BUCHS
Robert S. Woods (Bo), Phil Carey (Asa) and
Mark Derwin (Ben) had a blast at Slezak's party -- until Carey got his hand
caught in a heavy slamming door. "I have to wear this bandage," lamented the
cowboy holding up his right hand the next day. Derwin yelled out, "Davidson!"
when Viki's last names were recounted and did not include her latest husband.
Lisa Peluso (Gina) flanked by James and Kassie
DePaiva, (Max and Blair) said she's been enjoying her quality time with Slezak
in the basement. "I feel so blessed to be working her her. She really eyeballs
you in the scenes, not to mention being sweet and supportive."
THE MOTHERS CLUB
Linda Dano (Rae) and Patricia Elliott (Renee)
toasted Slezak, who gave a speech about knowing the crew longer than she has
known her husband.
