Earlier in the winter it was announced that former "Real Housewives of New Jersey" cast member Dina Manzo has joined the cast of the upcoming online soap opera, "Tainted Dreams." With drama that can only rival the antics seen on soap operas encompassing the New Jersey edition of the popular Bravo "Real Housewives" franchise, Manzo decided that enough was enough by the close of Season 2 and bid adieu. [Manzo's siblings, Caroline and Chris, remain regulars on the series.] Following her "Real Housewives" exit, Manzo landed the more easy-going reality series "Dina's Party" on HGTV. On her impending move to scripted serial drama, Manzo - a long-time "One Life to Live" fan - exclaims to Celebuzz.com that she is "excited to be part of a project centered around the rich, proud heritage of NYC-based daytime drama."

On today's edition of "The View," Susan Lucci revealed that the return of her alter ego, Erica Kane, to the online relaunch of "All My Children" is currently not in the cards. Fans of the popular soap opera and the legendary character should not despair though. The petite diva enthusiastically added, "I want with all my heart to return." Lucci further elaborated to the women of "The View" that all the parties involved are "working so hard to make that [return] happen."

On Monday, February 11, Paos Revolution, the team behind the upcoming "On Air" film starring "All My Children's" Jordi Vilasuso (Dr. Griffin Castillo) and Alicia Minshew (ex-Kendall Hart) announced the launch of their official website. "The launch of paosrevolution.com is the first step of our plan to connect fans to the soap actors and insiders they love. Founding partners Jordi Vilasuso, Dock (Jeff Dockweiler) and John Homa are committed to creating an interactive actor friendly environment," said a press release announcing the launch.

With Prospect Park now signing agreements with key unions SAG-AFTRA (actors), the DGA (directors), and the WGA (writers), with an expectation to begin filming episodes of "All My Children" as soon as next month, we wondered who you wanted to see act on the soap when it moves to the web. Your choices can include past actors as well as wishful casting (recast and new characters are welcomed). We also wondered who you want to join the writing team now that thousands of writers are at Prospect Park's disposal courtesy of their agreement with the WGA, as well as who you want to direct episodes of the series. Keep in mind that Agnes Nixon, who created both "AMC" and "One Life to Live," is currently working as a consultant for Prospect Park, according to Foz McDermott, head of production for TOLN (Prospect Park's The Online Network). Also note that actors Jordi Vilasuso (Dr. Griffin Castillo), Darnell Williams (Jesse Hubbard), Debbi Morgan (Dr. Angela Hubbard), Vincent Irizarry (Dr. David Hayward) and Lindsay Hartley (Dr. Cara Castillo) are all confirmed as signing on to return to "AMC" when it moves to the web. Alicia Minshew (ex-Kendall Hart) has reported that she's been approached, while Cameron Mathison (ex-Ryan Lavery) hope's he can be involved. There's no word yet on the status of Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane), who was the only original cast member from the first season of “AMC” that had remained with the show without interruption from its debut on January 5, 1970 through its final ABC broadcast on September 23, 2011.

In a posting on her Twitter page just a short time ago, former "All My Children" star Alicia Minshew revealed that she has been approached by Prospect Park to return to the soap in the role of Kendall Hart. "I'm so happy for all of you getting your 'AMC' and 'OLTL' shows back!" Minshew commented. "Many of you have asked me-Yes I have been approached. No news yet!"

"I wish she'd tell me what she was thinking" are the first spoken words in the teaser trailer for the upcoming  film "On Air" by Paos Revolution, a new production company formed by Jordi Vilasuso ("All My Children," "Guidiing Light") and acting coaches from "AMC" and "General Hospital." The film will tell the fictionalized story of life after a popular soap opera gets canceled and how the stars of the program are forced to move on.

Alicia Minshew (ex-Kendall Hart Slater, "All My Children") is currently off filming her new movie, "Desires of the Heart" in Savannah, GA and now Soap Opera Network is happy to report the film has unveiled its Facebook page for fans to take a look at the journey to making the film.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, former "All My Children" starlet Alicia Minshew (ex-Kendall Hart) has landed a major role in the new film "Desires of the Heart," which began production in Savannah, GA on Monday, August 13.

Walking in on your beau bedding your best friend... Halting your wedding because your evil twin stole your spot at the altar... Discovering that your mortal enemy is really your long-lost sibling. These may seem like the plotlines of a delicious daytime soap, but sensational stories are anything but fiction on Investigation Discovery. Dishing out the drama of blindsided betrayals, mistaken identities, and deadly deceptions, ID is staking its claim on real-life soap operas with the launch of daytime programming block DAYS OF OUR KNIVES on Monday, August 20 from 1-4 PM E/P.

Noting the nations thirst for New Jersey based reality entertainment, in the summer of 2010, the cable network Oxygen jumped into the fray with "Jersey Couture." Except for being based in New Jersey, viewers will not see much similarities between this series and the eccentricities of Bravo's "Real Housewives of New Jersey" and MTV's "Jersey Shore." "Jersey Couture" rather takes a page from TLC's "Say Yes to the Dress." Both programs share the same producers. This reality series follows the fun and drama surrounding the Scali family (and their customers) as they run Diane & Co., one of New Jersey's premiere dress boutiques.
