MY (DEAD) EX-WIFE IS BACK AND…

Dixie corrects Adam when he rationalizes that his medication is causing him to hallucinate. Dixie informs Adam that she won’t be leaving his side until he reveals the truth about Kate to Tad. JR and Krystal worry about Adam’s mental health. Adam turns to Opal for help. Dixie taunts Adam as Opal tries to oust the unknown spirit Adam claims is haunting him. Opal soon becomes fed up with Adam’s attitude and leaves him to fend off his ghost for himself. Dixie continues to play tricks on Adam. Adam realizes that Dixie still loves Tad. Adam asks a concerned Stuart to talk to Dixie and get her to leave him alone.

Tad and Jesse track down Dr. Madden’s assistant, Hazel, to a seedy bar she runs just outside of town. Unaware that the two men set the scene up, Hazel is putty in Jesse’s hand after he protects her bar from being robbed. Hazel is clued into what’s really going on when her bouncers drags a snooping Tad into her bar. Hazel can’t help but be affected by Tad’s emotional plea. Tad is sure he’s on track to finding Kate; meanwhile Julia makes plans to move to Australia with Kathy (Kate) after receiving a job offer. Tad and Dixie share a cosmic connection.

Babe confronts the duo and pretends to believe Richie’s claims of innocence. Babe tells JR about her encounter with Richie and Treena and apologizes to her ex-husband for jumping to the wrong conclusion about him.

Greenlee and Kendall are aghast when footage of them pole dancing shows up during a presentation. Greenlee would fire Annie on the spot but to everyone’s shock the businessmen respond to the footage by offering Fusion a major contract. A disappointed Annie pulls Ryan into a kiss that just ends up leaving her more frustrated. Ryan tells Zach that he wants to move on with his life regardless of the amnesia. Facing blackmail of his own, Richie blackmails Annie for money and threatens to expose her lies to Ryan.

CASUALTIES OF WAR?

Zach explains the situation in Darfur to Ryan. Ryan and Zach work together to come up with a plan to help Aidan rescue Jake. Meanwhile, in Darfur, instead of taking the opportunity to escape, Jake chooses to save the life of the wounded rebel leader. Aidan is successful in his plot to be captured by the same rebels holding Jake hostage. Zach surprises Greenlee when he tells her he’s arranged for a way for them to monitor Aidan’s whereabouts. Aidan and Jake plot a risky escape. Greenlee, Kendall, Zach and Ryan look on in horror as they watch Aidan and Jake on the monitor. The group awaits word on Jake and Aidan.

‘AMC’ May Sweeps Notebook

By Angela Rosa


(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — “All My Children” keeps the drama moving on-and-off-screen.

AMC Logo

CONTRACT ACTOR NEWS

- The role of Colby Chandler, daughter of Adam Chandler (David Canary) and Liza Colby (Marcy Walker), has been recast. Twenty-five year old Brianne Moncrief will replace nineteen year old Ambyr Childers in May.

Childers began playing the role of Colby Chandler in July of 2006. After a rough start, Childers managed to do an admirable job in turning the young Chandler into a fan favorite and many fans of the ABC soap will be dismayed to see the actress go. Childers will last air on Monday, March 5.

Moncrief will show up as the new face of Colby starting on Wednesday, May 7. Moncrief’s television credits include appearances on CBS’s “Guiding Light” and HBO’s “The Sopranos.”

An “All My Children” spokesperson relates that the actress switch was storyline dictated. The educated guess here is that the soap felt that Childers’ look was to young to fit into the young adult storyline her former character is headed into with Frankie (Cornelius Smith Jr.), Dre (Sterling Sulieman) and Cassandra (Yaya DaCosta).

- In a letter to his fans, Jeff Branson recently confirmed that his relationship with “AMC” will not continue past his current contract which expires in June 2008. Don’t expect a goodbye scene for the youngest Lavery brother; much to everybody’s surprise, including Branson’s, Jonathan Lavery last aired on December 18, 2007. The Emmy nominated actor will hold an event in June to say a proper farewell to his fans, for more information on that event follow this link: http://www.fourthhourproductions.com/jeffbransonparty08.html

- Leven Rambin, Branson’s oft-time on-screen leading lady, is wanted at “AMC” but clearly doesn’t seem to want the ABC drama back. As far back as last summer, the actress announced her intention to leave the show at the end of her contract cycle. Her characters, Ava Benton and Lily Montgomery, have not aired on “AMC” since February and will continue to stay off-screen for the foreseeable future. Rambin is having little problem with staying in the spotlight without the soap. The seventeen year old Emmy nominated actress recently guest-starred on NBC’s “Lipstick Jungle” and is keeping the gossip pages busy as she gives out Brooke Shield’s (the star of “Lipstick Jungle”) alleged tanning secrets and is romantically linked to men twice her age. Rambin’s contract with “AMC” will expire in June.

Ricky Paull Goldin premieres in the contract role of Jake Martin this week. Yaya DaCosta premiered as Angie’s (Debbie Morgan) daughter, Cassandra Foster (also a contract role), on April 25.

– Watch for another rare Palmer Cortlandt (James Mitchell) appearance during the week of May 5, and expect to see a larger dose of Opal (Jill Larson) than normal during the next several weeks.

RECURRING ACTOR NEWS

- Speaking of contracts, it has come to Soap Opera Network’s attention that Elizabeth Rodriguez role of Carmen Morales is not a contract role. Upon breaking the news of the hiring, Soap Opera Digest had reported the role as being contract and SON initially ran with that information. The actress is among “AMC’s” top three favorite recurring characters of the moment, the other two of course being Mario Van Peebles (Samuel Woods) and David Rasche (Robert Gardner).

MAY SWEEPS: SPECIAL GUESTS, RETURNS, AND LOCATION SHOOTS

- R&B band B5 serenaded Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) outside of her prison lock-up on April 25th.

- Cady McClain will reprise the role of Dixie Cooney Martin starting on May 2nd for a limited run. Expect the bulk of her scenes to be with, but not limited to, Adam Chandler. Though back on a mission of healing and reunion, it seems as if ghost Dixie will also get to exact a nasty case of karma on her ex-husband who aptly got her locked up in the loony bin with his nasty tricks twenty years earlier!

- Look for Caroline Stephanie Clay to return as Hazel for a couple of episodes. To get information about Tad’s (Michael E. Knight) long missing daughter Kate, Tad and Jesse try to worm their way into the heart of the deceased Greg Madden’s trusted former nurse. Starting on May 6th, look for the best buddies to confront Hazel at her new gig at The Sunshine Bar.

- Billionaire Warren Buffet will play himself on May 8 and 9. Expect Buffet to offer his old pal, Erica, some surprising advice.

- Laurence Lau, who played Greg of AMC’s super couple Jenny (Kim Delaney) and Greg from 1981-1986, will return for a couples of episodes starting on May 20. He’ll be reunited with Tad, Angie and Jesse for some reflection and of course to attend Angie and Jesse’s second wedding. Tad is his former brother-in-law and Greg and Jenny were Angie and Jesse’s best buddies.

- R&B singer Ne-Yo will serenade not-so newlyweds Jesse and Angie at their wedding reception. The singer-songwriter will perform “Closer” and “Stop This World” during his May 21 and May 22 guest stint.

- Big weddings usually beget big drama, and this case is no different. The new Mrs. Hubbard will be swooped into a helicopter by Robert Gardner for a kidnapping instead of a honeymoon. TV Guide Canada is reporting that Knight, Williams, Morgan and several other “AMC” cast members were spotted in sunny Los Angeles over the weekend and reported that they were there for a location shoot.

“All My Children” airs weekdays on ABC and weeknights on SOAPnet. Check local listings.

    Natalia Livingston

    (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — “General Hospital” says goodbye to two hospital staffers as Natalia Livingston and Seamus Dever exit Port Charles for good.

    On Monday, May 5, Emily Bowen-Quartermaine (Livingston) will say her final goodbye to truelove Nikolas Cassadine (Tyler Christopher) as Nikolas’ visions of her end after undergoing surgery for a tumor that causes him to hallucinate. Nikolas has been seeing Emily’s spirit from time to time since she was maliciously killed off during the Black and While ball in November 2007 by Diego Alcazar (Ignacio Serrichio).

    Livingston joined “General Hospital” in April 2003 as Emily, the adopted daughter of Monica and Alan Quartermaine (Leslie Charleson and Stuart Damon). She took over the role from Amber Tamblyn, who portrayed the character from 1995 to 2001 on the ABC soap. “General Hospital” will present a special montage of Emily’s life during the episode as the character meets her heavenly end.

    In other news, Seamus Dever’s Dr. Ian Devlin is departing “General Hospital” on Tuesday, May 6 as the character takes his last breathe during a battle for the truth with Jason Morgan (Steve Burton). Dr. Devlin is responsible for the shooting of Michael Corinthos (Dylan Cash), son of Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and Carly Jacks (Laura Wright). The bullet was meant for Sonny but ricocheted and hit Michael in the head instead. The character is currently in a coma and understood to be brain dead.

    Dever joined the cast in the recurring role of Dr. Ian Devlin in January 2008. Devlin was a college buddy of Dr. Patrick Drake’s (Jason Thompson). His exit doesn’t come as a surprise to fans of the soap as the character was written into a corner, which wasn’t helped by the 2007-2008 Writer’s Guild of America writers strike which lasted for four months (November 5, 2007 to February 12, 2008). The character was most recently providing Nikolas Cassadine with an illegal drug that he promised would help him keep seeing Emily and get rid of his tumor.

    “General Hospital” airs weekdays on ABC and weeknights on SOAPnet. Check local listings.

    Update: Natalia Livingston last aired on Wednesday, May 7. In the article above it was stated that she would last air on Monday, May 5.
