Daytime legend Erika Slezak (Viki, ONE LIFE TO LIVE) used her official website to reach out to fans to update them on how she’s doing with self-quarantining during the coronavirus pandemic and also to urge them to watch her in the upcoming ABC special presentation The Story of Soaps. “ABC and People asked me to participate in this project, and did a very long interview — about two hours — out of which they will probably use maybe five minutes,” the actress joked. “I hope you enjoy watching.”
Slezak also took the opportunity to assure fans that she is weathering the pandemic just fine, as are husband Brian Davies and her children, Michael and Amanda. “We are all doing well here in Connecticut and managing just as best as we can,” she reported. “We are lucky in that we have a home and food in the cupboard and the fridge and we are staying in. I haven’t been to a store in 60 days. Michael does all the errands like grocery shopping, etc., and fortunately, he is very careful and staying healthy.
“The weather has, for the most part, been totally miserable,” she continued. “We have had maybe two or three really nice days, and it’s been cloudy and rainy the rest of the time, so there is really no reason to go outside anyway. I’ve been doing lots of reading and cleaning the house and clearing out of cupboards, etc., which keeps us busy. I hope everyone is well and that we come out of this in one piece.”
