Over and Out on ‘AMC’

Wednesday, February 4, 2009 4:59 PM EST | By Angela Rosa


(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Now you seem them, now you don’t.

“All My Children” just continues to break new ground. Immediately following daytime television’s first same-sex marriage between Bianca Montgomery (Eden Riegel) and Reese Williams (Tamara Braun), you may get a front seat to daytime television’s first same-sex marriage annulment. Is the ABC drama also aiming to beat the record for shortest daytime marriage on record?

Eden Riegel exits from the role of Bianca Montgomery on Tuesday, February 24. Riegel returned to “AMC” on October 17, 2008 with a four-month contract. This will be Riegel’s eighth departure from the show. The Emmy-winning actress started in the role of Erica Kane’s (Susan Lucci) youngest child in the summer of 2000.

An embittered Reese will stick around Pine Valley for a while longer.

Dr. Sinclair’s misdeeds will come to light in the not too distant future. McKenzie Westmore’s bitter and vengeful character seems to vanish after getting a taste of her own medicine on Thursday, February 19. Is the not so nice doctor gone for good? Possibly; although the latest issue of ABC Soaps In Depth reports that at press time the “Passions” alum was very close to extending her recurring stint with the show. The 31-year old actress began airing in the role of Annie Lavery’s (Melissa Claire Egan) psychiatrist on December 12, 2008.

Aidan and Ryan agree to work together to get the goods on Sinclair and to get Annie the help she needs. Ryan talks his way out of a close call with Sinclair by badmouthing Annie and defending Richie. Before leaving, Ryan tells Aidan that he found out that the missing years in Sinclair’s records match the time when Richie was in prison. Aidan phones Ryan after hacking into Sinclair’s computer and finding a letter from a Chicago prison admonishing her for improper conduct with an inmate. Sinclair breaks Annie down with a recording of her earlier conversation with Ryan. Aidan tries to hide his concern when Sinclair confronts him with Annie’s taped confession. Sinclair uses Aidan’s departure to further dig into Annie. Greenlee becomes upset after learning that Ryan, Aidan and Tad have been trying to help Annie, who with the help of an unlocked door walks right out of Oak Haven, again.

Kendall wonders why Zach went ahead and made the choice to father the child knowing that she wouldn’t have wanted him to.

Kendall tells Bianca she’ll go to her wedding under the condition that she, Reese and Gabrielle leave town following it; elsewhere, Zach suggests the same to Reese. Zach and Kendall discuss the details of their conversations with the brides-to-be. Kendall’s vitriol intensifies at the rehearsal dinner and ends in a scathing toast on Thursday, February 12.

    ‘AMC’s’ Mortality Count

    Sunday, February 1, 2009 11:49 PM EST | By Angela Rosa

    (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Who’s not going to wait to die another day in Pine Valley?

    Soap death comes in sets of…six? Babe (Amanda Baker), Di (Heather Kenzie), Myrtle (Eileen Herlie) and Josh (Colin Egglesfield) are about to get some company (that’s a spoiler alert for those of you that enjoy being surprised).

    Laura Koffman is out as Rebecca. Jesse Hubbard’s (Darnell Williams) surprise ex-wife’s brain tumor isn’t as stabilized as everybody thought. Jesse and Natalia (Shannon Kane) will deal with Rebecca’s sudden death during the week of February 9. Koffman first appeared on “AMC” in the recurring role of Rebecca on October 28, 2008.

    Wait just a minute! Don’t put your best black outfits away quite yet.

    Before Rebecca’s (off-screen, of course) funeral can even be arranged, Greenlee Smythe finds herself in great peril when she takes off on her motorcycle into an extremely volatile situation. Rebecca Budig finished taping at “AMC” this past week. Unlike the aforementioned five, Ms. Smythe is expected to face one of those rather ambiguous deaths – remember Leo’s (Josh Duhamel) exit? Although Budig’s Greenlee disappears during the week of February 16, sources close to Soap Opera Network report that come March “AMC” fans can expect one more sighting of one of Pine Valley’s favorite vixens.

    Budig made the decision to return to “AMC” for one year during the crippling 2007 Writers’ Strike. In January 2008, the Emmy-nominated actress replaced Sabine Singh who was unceremoniously bounced from the role of the cosmetics mogul after approximately nine months of service. Budig originated the role of Greenlee Smythe in August 1999 and remained in the role until November 2005.

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