On Wednesday, November 27, don’t forget to tune into CBS’ “The Young and the Restless” as Eileen Davidson returns to Genoa City when her character Ashley Abbott surprises her family for Thanksgiving.
When asked in a recent interview with Soap Opera Network whether she’d be interested in making return visits to “Y&R,” Davidson said, “I would be open to doing any show… It’s really about schedule.” She added, “I have such a wonderful history with ‘The Young and the Restless.’ I don’t have any weird feelings or bad feelings, so they don’t really have to do much to win me back to come back for a couple of days. I’m happy to do it, and it’s fun for me. I don’t really want to be working any place right now full time, so this is actually kind of perfect, to be able to come back and see people. [And it’s] an amazing experience: Nobody gets bored with me, nobody is tired of seeing me. It’s like, ‘Oh yay, she’s back!’”
Davidson most recently appeared in late October to support Ashley’s brother, Billy Abbott (Billy Miller), who lost his daughter from a hit-and-run.
You’ve already heard from Debbi Morgan and Cady McClain, but what about the other stars of “All My Children” who’ve recently learned that Prospect Park will not be forging ahead with a second season of the supposed “anytime” soap opera. Putting together all the tweets (at the time of this posting), Soap Opera Network has compiled a list of what some of the actors are saying about the demise of “AMC” 2.0 on social media.
Eric Nelsen (AJ Chandler) tweeted earlier today, “Thank you for all the love and support re #AMC. We’d be nothing without u guys so for that reason I am grateful. This is only the beginning.” His tweet was retweeted by Denyse Tontz (Miranda Montgomery), who has yet to officially comment herself.
On Friday, November 8, Soap Opera Network reported that SOAPnet, now the old way to watch soaps, would cease operation on December 31, 2013 at 11:59:59 ET. In a piece by the Los Angeles Times, Ben Pyne, president of global distribution for Disney Media Networks, said, ”SOAPnet had a great run.” He added, “It served an audience of super-soap fans. And when given the opportunity, all of our affiliates kept the channel up and running.” The affiliates Pyne refers are the cable and satellite operators including DirecTV and Cablevision, et al that have kept the cable network on their channel listings whether a new deal with Disney and the carriers was signed or not.
In a posting on her Facebook page, “All My Children’s” Cady McClain (Dixie Cooney, pictured right with “AMC” co-star Denyse Tontz) reiterates Debbi Morgan‘s (Angela Hubbard) confirmation that “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” have been canceled. “If you aren’t hearing anything about the ending of ‘AMC’ as we know it, it’s really out of shock. I am also trying to allow PP to have the moment to contact all the actors and explain what is and has been going on with ‘AMC,’ and then gather themselves to try and explain it all to you, the fans.”
She added, “I can confirm what Debbie Morgan has shared already, that we were given assurances that we would be continuing with the series and then were very recently contacted and told that, with great regret, ‘AMC’ won’t be going back online this year, or in this particular incarnation. Certainly hope springs eternal that we will yet again, spring from the dead.”
On Friday, November 29, “The Young and the Restless’” Jerry Douglas (John Abbott) will be performing alongside comedian Rich Little at The Canyon in Agoura Hills, and again on Saturday, November 30, also with Little, Douglas will be performing at The Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills.

In the new book, “Llanview in the Afternoon: An Oral History of One Life to Live,” actress Ellen Holly (ex-Clara “Carla” Hall) accused former co-star Erika Slezak (Viki Lord Buchanan) of getting her fired off of the ABC soap back in the 1980′s. The actress says Slezak used the words, “Get those two black bitches out of my face,” in reference to Holly and Lillian Hayman (Sadie Gray) during an anniversary party for the show in 1983. Until now, Slezak had not commented on the matter since the book hit Amazon and other outlets in early September.
Per her official website, Slezak emailed author Jeff Giles on November 7 to give her side of the story (see below), which will be edited into all new and future editions of the book (both digital and hard copies). “Please know that the quotes attributed to Erika from Ellen Holly are absolutely not true,” Slezak’s website stated.
Eric Martsolf (Brady Black, “Days of our Lives”) is scheduled to take part in the 33rd annual “WPXI Presents: My Macy’s Holiday Parade” (previously “Celebrate the Season Parade”), the NBC affiliate announced last week.
Scheduled to take place on Saturday, November 30 from 9:00 to 11:00 AM, the annual parade will kick off the holiday season in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania beginning at the Liberty Technology Center, 2200 Liberty Ave., Strip, and proceeding to Grant Street, right onto Fifth Avenue, left onto Liberty Avenue, and then left onto Stanwix Street.

With “All My Children’s” Debbi Morgan confirming that her show (and likely “One Life to Live”) has been canceled after getting word from Prospect Park’s lawyers in the last couple of days, Soap Opera Network once again reached out to Prospect Park to find out if A) Are both shows now officially canceled. B) Is Prospect Park possibly seeking/able to try another reboot down the road. C) How does this cancellation relate to their rights to the shows and D) Do the rights now revert back to ABC.
A representative for the company would only say, “We are not commenting.”
