Erika Slezak Goes to Heaven One Last Time on One Life to Live

Erica Slezak and Jessica Tuck

ABC's One Life to Live will come to an end next week after 43 years on the air. But, first, Victoria Lord will have one more chance to visit Heaven. The grande dame of Llanview — played by six-time Emmy winner Erika Slezak — is famous for her near-death, out-of-body experiences that land her at the Pearly Gates. She's back there again Monday, Jan. 9, along with her soulmate Clint (Jerry verDorn), after the two of them are shot in a shocking denouement to the Statesville Prison break. This time, Viki will be escorted to the afterlife by her late daughter Megan, played by returning fan fave Jessica Tuck, best known these days as the bitchy vampire activist Nan Flanagan on True Blood. TV Guide Magazine spoke with Slezak about Viki's latest brush with death and — dare we say it? — a possible reprieve for OLTL!

Catherine Hickland Returns to One Life to Live

Catherine Hickland

ABC's landmark soap One Life to Live will end its run January 13 but not before several of the show's most memorable badasses escape from Statesville Prison and return to Llanview to raise some eleventh-hour hell. Among them: Mitch Laurence (Roscoe Born), Troy MacIver (Ty Treadway), Cole Thornhart (Van Hughes), and our fave of faves, Lindsay Rappaport, the camptastic murderess played by Catherine Hickland. Yes, the very same Catherine Hickland who got spitting mad last spring when OLTL and All My Children were cancelled and took to her blog to blast ABC and its (then) daytime chief Brian Frons for destroying the soaps with their "character assassinating, lame storytelling and micromanaging." TV Guide Magazine caught up with the bodacious Hickland, who is now a certified hypnotherapist living in Las Vegas and is two years into a very serious relationship with businessman Todd Fisher (brother of Carrie, son of Debbie). Needless to say, she was extremely surprised to find herself... read more

Exclusive: Chandler Massey Delivers Scoop on His Days of Our Lives Coming Out Plot

Chandler Massey

He's sure no poster boy for GLAAD. Will Horton, the Days of Our Lives teenager played by Chandler Massey, is gay and deeply, desperately in denial about it. And his coming-out story won't take the politically safe route. Days currently has another young gay character — Will's friend Sonny, played by former 90210 star Freddie Smith — who is out and proud and inspiringly comfortable in his own skin. But Will's saga will be packed with guilt, rage, violence, drinking and blackmail — and that's weeks before the kid even has his first gay kiss! TV Guide Magazine spoke with Massey to get some exclusive deets on where this landmark plot is headed. Spoiler warning!

"Jim Shannon [Jason O'Mara] is hit by the blast and wakes up three days later to a very surreal scene — Phoenix soldiers have taken command of the colony."
