ABC Soaps in Depth

In the newest issue of ABC Soaps In Depth, "General Hospital" star Julie Marie Berman has announced in an exclusive interview that she is leaving the series after seven and a half years portraying Lulu Spencer. "I always have a desire to grow and challenge myself in other mediums. And there are enough reasons now that my gut is telling me this is the right time to finally let go of 'GH.'" Berman says she informed her bosses back in July of last year that she had plans to leave the series. "I gave my notice in July to leave when my contract was up in November last year," said Berman, who also explained that she decided to stay a little while longer after subsequent discussions between her management team and "GH" executive producer Frank Valentini.

There has been much discussed about "All My Children" 2.0 following a report by Soaps in Depth in which the magazine reported on its website that "All My Children," as conceived by the minds behind the scenes at Prospect Park, has been placed on hold. This of course is after months of rumors and speculation stating that the company had planned to launch the show just days following its September 23 ABC finale and again in January 2012 following the network finale of sister soap "One Life to Live," which in addition to "AMC" was licensed to Prospect Park for its Online Network (TOLN) in a deal brokered with the Disney/ABC Television Group back in July of this year. But is this really news to the fans or were we all just hoping something else was going on behind the scenes that would suddenly pace the show on the same trek as "OLTL?"

As we first reported last night, thanks to a tweet from a "One Life to Live" crew member, it was looking as if Amanda Setton, who currently plays Penelope Shafai on "Gossip Girl," was making her way back to Llanview as the former stripper and Buchanan wife Kimberly Andrews. This afternoon, both Soap Opera Digest and ABC Soaps in Depth confirmed the news, stating that the actress was indeed returning to Llanview.
Earlier today, Soap Opera Digest posted breaking news on their website when they reported that actress Cady McClain would be returning to ABC's "All My Children" in the role of Dixie Cooney. Shortly afterward, Soaps in Depth posted their own version of the news. Who to believe? At this point, it doesn't matter as long as Dixie's back! Then again, Cady did return in early 2010 when Dixie, who died via poisoned pancakes (what were the writers thinking?), and her ghost/spirit was used to usher out Palmer Cortlandt, who had "died" on the soap a few months after his real-life portrayer, James Mitchell, passed away.
