For the special appearance, the Queen of Soaps will be discussing her experience filming for the Marc Cherry created and Eva Longoria (ex-Isabella Williams, “The Young and the Restless”) produced Lifetime soap, “Devoius Maids,” as well as — you guessed it — whether or not she’ll actually be returning to “AMC.”

Port Charles is about to get a new resident in the form of daytime actor William deVry, who took to Facebook to announce that he has joined ABC’s only sudser in a contract role. “Finally!

And I come to town as the character of Derek Willis.”
With “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” having successfully re-launched earlier this year via Hulu, Hulu Plus, iTunes and iTunes Canada by Prospect Park’s The OnLine Network (TOLN), it was only a matter of time before “A Tribute to Pine Valley” and “Loving Llanview” no longer became necessary. Today, Celebrity Events Group announced that now is your last chance to purchase merchandise featuring the ABC incarnations of both soaps on T-shirts, mugs, champagne glasses, sweatpants, magazines, and more. “Our Warehouse is Closing!” read a message sent out to subscribers of its mailing list.
OWN announced today plans to air a mini-marathon of its summer fling consisting of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live.”
As previously reported, both “AMC” and “OLTL” will join the OWN lineup airing Mondays through Thursdays. However, on Monday, July 15, both soaps will launch with a marathon of back-to-back half-hour episodes airing in different timeslots. The first three episodes of “AMC” will air from 12:00-1:30 PM ET/PT, with the third episode repeating at 1:30 PM ET/PT. From 2:00 PM-3:30 PM, “OLTL” will air its first three episodes with the third episode repeating at 3:30 PM ET/PT.
Beginning today, July 1, The OnLine Network has begun releasing episodes of both “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” Netlfix style with Mondays now known as “Soap Mondays,” where each week the company will post to both Hulu and iTunes new episodes of each soap and “MORE” on Mondays. In addition, episodes will now be published by episode number instead of by weeks as had been the case since the shows launched in late April.
If you haven’t tuned in to see “All My Children’s” Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane) on her new series, “Devious Maids,” then now might be the perfect time: She and her fellow castmates will be tweeting with fans during this Sunday’s broadcast!
As a result of OWN picking up the cable rights to the first 40 episodes of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live,” many wanted to know what that meant for “MORE,” the series that gives fans just that at the end of each week, or on Mondays now that it, along with “AMC” and “OLTL” will release new episodes Netflix style beginning Monday, July 1. Soap Opera Network has the answer.
Next week on all-new episodes of “All My Children,” which beginning Monday, July 1 will now be released on Mondays instead of the previously scheduled Mondays/Wednesdays, Jesse gets more than he bargained for when he comes face to face with Uri, JR tries to persuade Kyle and AJ/Miranda have a tender moment.
