All My Children

Daytime soap opera airing on Weekdays on ABC. Weeknights on SOAPnet.

There must be something in the water, because former soap stars just can’t seem to stay out of trouble these days! First there was word that Crystal Hunt (ex-Stacy Morasco, “One Life to Live;” ex-Lizzie Spaulding, “Guiding Light”) was charged with felony assault for allegedly smashing a glass in a woman’s face, then came news that Aiden Turner (ex-Aidan Devane, “All My Children”) was charged with domestic violence after allegedly throwing a remote control at his girlfriend, and now comes word that Colin Egglesfield (ex-Joshua Madden, “AMC”) has been arrested for disorderly conduct!

Hot on the heels of the news that Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea Newman, “The Young and the Restless”) will be appearing on Hallmark’s “Home & Family” on Tuesday, April 1 comes news that two additional soap stars will be dropping by the talk show this week: “Days of our Lives’” Deidre Hall (Marlena Evans) and “All My Children’s” J.R. Martinez (ex-Brot Monroe)!
If you’re one of the fans impatiently waiting for Cady McClain (ex-Dixie Cooney, “All My Children”) to make her debut as “The Young and the Restless’” Kelly Andrews on Wednesday, April 16, then you’ll be happy to know that the actress has shared some fun behind-the-scenes info on her new gig!
“All My Children’s” Amanda Seyfried (ex-Joni Stafford) was just 15 years old when she joined the soap world as “As the World Turns’” Lucinda Montgomery, and the actress has definitely done a lot of growing up since making it big in Hollywood! The “Mean Girls,” “Les Miserables” and “Lovelace” star is featured in the April edition of W magazine, where she makes it very clear that she’s not a little girl anymore!
Anyone who’s been watching “The Young and the Restless” as of late knows that Nicholas Newman’s life is about to be blown to smithereens. Not only has his father been tricking the love of his life into thinking she’s been seeing and speaking with her dead daughter, he’s on the verge of finding out that the very same woman he loves has been lying to him about the true paternity of his daughter! The drama is all pretty typical for Nick’s portrayer, Joshua Morrow — who’s been dealing with twisted Genoa City plots for nearly 20 years — but the drama he faces in his latest stint in the political drama thriller ‘Tentacle 8?’ Not so much! Soap Opera Network spoke with the actor about momentarily stepping away from his ‘Y&R’ craziness to film the exciting project, which is available on DVD in stores and on Amazon today. And we also got him to spill on all of the Victor (Eric Braeden), Sharon (Sharon Case) and Adam (formerly Michael Muhney) drama, too!
As we reported yesterday, Prospect Park Networks — the company behind the online re-launch of soaps “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” — has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. And as news of the latest PPN vs. ABC twist spread, further details were revealed: The production company reportedly owes ABC $1.7 million, and it also owes some big name actors large sums of money, as well!
There’s been some behind the scenes buzz that perhaps Jon Lindstrom (Kevin Collins, “General Hospital”) and Cady McClain (Kelly Andrews, “The Young and the Restless;” Dixie, “All My Children”) recently had a secret wedding ceremony, but it’s a mere rumor no longer: Lindstrom has revealed that McClain is in fact his brand new wife!
Queen of Soaps Susan Lucci (Genevieve Delatour, “Devious Maids;” Erica Kane “All My Children”) is adding one more accomplishment to her long list of admirable achievements: She’ll be returning as host for the 13th Annual UCP of NYC Women Who Care luncheon!
The official Drama Performer Pre-Nominations for this year’s Daytime Emmy Awards were announced earlier today, and fans of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” may have noticed something peculiar: Both online versions of the shows were much less represented than their network counterparts.
Melody Thomas Scott may be celebrating her 35th anniversary as “The Young and the Restless’” Nikki Newman, but that doesn’t mean her Genoa City alter ego is the only acting challenge on her plate: She’s booked a guest starring role on CBS’s “The Crazy Ones!” And guess what? The Los Angeles native will be playing a boozy librarian — which won’t be a far stretch, considering Nikki is a recovering alcoholic!
