All My Children

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

Days after being declared one of the Sexiest Men Alive by People Magazine in the Special Double Issue on newsstands right now, J.R. Martinez achieved what many fully expected and took home the mirror ball trophy on "Dancing With the Stars." Tonight, season thirteen's most charming - and naturally talented - contestant beat out talk-show host and film actor Ricki Lake and her professional partner Derek Hough as well as reality television personality Rob Kardashian and his professional partner Cheryl Burke to help bring his professional partner Karina Smirnoff her first "DWTS" win in no less than ten attempts.

"Days of our Lives" and "General Hospital" continue to make changes to their writing staffs.

Soap fans across the web aren't sure what to believe anymore as there are reports that Prospect Park is now without enough funding to support both "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" on its Online Network (TOLN), but considering both soaps were just a small part of the overall planning behind the network does that now mean that the Online Network itself is dead as well?

In a new Facebook posting that went up just a short time ago, actress Susan Lucci has taken to the social networking service to clear the air regarding the status of "All My Children" and its move to the internet and plans for her inclusion in the online version of the long running ABC soap.

On Monday afternoon, Vincent Irizarry learned of Jamey Giddens (of Daytime Confidential) rather strong implication on Twitter that [Irizarry's] lack of cooperation along with Agnes Nixon and Lorraine Broderick's "story projections" were a major reason production company Prospect Park decided to reportedly halt early production efforts to move "All My Children" to the internet. Read on to find out how the none too pleased Daytime Emmy Award winner responded to the claim on Facebook on Monday evening.

Prospect Park decides to move forward with plans for "One Life to Live," while delaying the launch of "All My Children" for the time being. But why the sudden change of plans?

It was Tuesday, October 4 when Soap Opera Network first reported on the current status of union discussions between the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA) and Prospect Park following word back in July that Prospect Park would be launching "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" on the web. Now more than a month later, and with news that "AMC" is being delayed for various reasons, an AFTRA rep tells Soap Opera Network that they are "still in discussions with [Prospect Park]." This at some point could place a damper on the company's plan of launching "One Life" online in January if a deal isn't reached in the next several weeks.

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 "One Life to Live" winds down production on its television run, the show has landed the mother of all returns -- literally. Agnes Nixon, who created "OLTL" and sister soap "All My Children," will make an appearance on the show as, what else, a soap opera scribe.
