(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — SOAPnet takes Valentine’s Day to heart with “All My Children’s” Kendall Hart.

Pine Valley’s own Sleeping Beauty, Kendall Hart Slater, played since 2002 by Alicia Minshew, wakes up from her nearly four month long coma on Friday, January 30. (The actress was on vacation). On Saturday, February 7, SOAPnet celebrates the sugar, the spice and everything nice about Erica Kane’s (Susan Lucci) first born.

The “We Hart Kendall” marathon, which airs from 3 to 7 PM EST, coincides with SOAPnet’s six-week long (January 7 – February 14) anti-establishment Valentines Day celebration entitled “Sugar Free Valentine’s;” a celebration of Valentine’s Day without the usual amount of goo.

The four “All My Children” episodes were specifically chosen to highlight the many fundamental sides that make up Ms. Hart: rebellious daughter of Erica Kane, loyal sister, generous friend, outrageous flirt and simply an all-around strong woman who’s longing to be loved.

List of Episodes:

  • 3 PM (Original Airing 1/9/02): Kendall meets, flirts and spars with her future lover, fiancé and baby daddy Ryan Lavery (Cameron Mathison). Ms. Hart also finds a few moments to exchange “pleasantries” with her mother, Erica Kane, who pays her a surprise visit that ends in an arrest.
  • 4 PM (Original Airing 11/14/03): Kendall covers for her sister after a pushy Ryan finds Bianca’s sonogram. No good (albeit crazy) deed goes unpunished as Kendall soon finds out after confronting her paranoid sister. Don’t worry, the sisters make up as passionately as they fight!
  • 5 PM (Original Airing 8/15/05): Kendall takes friendship to a whole new level when she offers to carry the baby of her arch enemy and best friend, Greenlee (Rebecca Budig), and the “deceased” man the aforementioned stole from her.
  • 6 PM (Original Airing 12/15/05): Desperately in need of a vacation after all that drama, Kendall finds herself in paradise with her in-name-only husband, Zach Slater (Thorsten Kaye), for what might be Pine Valley’s most romantic divorce ever.

“All My Children” air Weekdays on ABC. Weeknights on SOAPnet. Check local listings.

    (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Out with the old, in with the news.

    When Barack Obama takes the oath of office on January 20th, 2009 and becomes our nation’s first African American President, the cable news outlets and broadcast networks will provide wall-to-wall coverage of the landmark event. As history is made in the United States, the eight daytime dramas will take a back seat to politics.

    It happens once every four years, and only 55 times in American history. And on January 20th, 2009, it will happen for the first time since 2005. The United States of America will transfer power from one Presidential administration to the next. And on his way to White House to begin the job of running the country, President-Elect Barack Obama will travel by train from Philadelphia to Washington, D.C., where he will be sworn in as the 44th President on the steps of the U.S. Capitol building, echoing the journey President Abraham Lincoln made nearly a century and a half ago. In addition, Obama will be sworn in using the same Bible Lincoln used when he first took the oath of office in 1861.

    Although the swearing in ceremony will not take place until noon est, numerous events have been scheduled throughout the day and into the evening, concluding with ten ceremonial Inaugural Balls. Following the oath of office, President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will make the traditional journey down Pennsylvania Avenue as part of the annual Inauguration Day Parade.

    Television coverage of the 56th U.S. Presidential Inauguration, themed “A New Birth of Freedom,” will result in the pre-emption of local newscasts and all regularly scheduled daytime programming on the four major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX) on Tuesday, January 20th. However, soap fans needn’t worry. All soaps will return on Wednesday, January 21st and no episodes will be missed.

Furious that Victor is once again entering himself in the picture, Brad decides to confront Ashley on the matter.

Brad is not pleased to hear that Victor has a close bond with the young teen.
    Things get worse for Brad when Victor demands that he step down from his position on the board of directors. Brad tells Victor he’s not about to step down from the board and tries his best to shake it off before having another bonding moment with not only Abby but Colleen. As they are talking, Abby lets slip that Victor has gone to her parent/teacher conference. Brad once again hides his anger and ends their lunch date early. At the conference, Ashley points out to Victor that he doesn’t need to attend the conference, but Victor insists that he wants to be a father in Abby’s life. The moment Brad shows up, it’s on. Brad and Victor have a heated exchange with one another, where Brad tells him that he will never take his place as Abby’s father. Seeing the argument, Ashley quickly steps in and tells Victor that he has to realize how Brad is feeling about his presence. After things have cooled down for Brad, he decides to take matters into his own hands. He has another visit with Abby and he asks her if she would like to come live with him.
