If you tuned into the new OWN/Tyler Perry series, “If Loving You Is Wrong,” during its premiere Tuesday night, then you’re all too aware that the steamy drama series is nearly too hot to handle! Scandalous sex scenes, drugs, affairs, love, families and friendship are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the topics offered on the show, which ended up being the most-watched series premiere in OWN history! Since former “All My Children” star Aiden Turner (ex-Aidan Devane) is smack dab in the middle of the excitement as the stuffy-yet-lovable character Brad, Soap Opera Network met with him to get the lowdown on working with creator/writer/director Tyler Perry, his embarrassing first meeting with Oprah Winfrey and what lies ahead for Brad on the sizzling series!

In conjunction with the new season launch of "Deadly Affairs" starring Susan Lucci ("All My Children," "Devious Maids") on Saturday, August 16 at 10:00 PM ET/9:00 PM CT, Investigation Discovery has announced the return of its daytime soap block hosted by several adored past and present soap stars. The block consists of encore episodes of some of the network's most scandalous series, such as "Wives with Knives," "My Dirty Little Secret," "Scorned: Love Kills" and "Evil Twins." Taking in the soap block as hosts are "General Hospital’s" Lynn Herring and Kin Shriner, "Days of our Lives’" Mary Beth Evans and Wally Kurth, Lamon Archey from "The Young and the Restless," Darnell Williams from "All My Children" and telenovela actress Katie Barberi ("Dona Barbara"). The block kicks off Monday, August 25 with "Sinful Secrets Week."

WTNH, better known as ABC8 in Stamford, CT, recently toured the set of The OnLine Network's "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" and got some inside scoop on what's happening on your favorite internet dramas.

The OnLine Network has announced that Matthew Cowles is returning to "All My Children" as his now undead character, Billy Clyde Tuggle, who resurfaces to cause some trouble as the owner of an escort service. The actor, who debuts on Thursday, May 16, will play a role in helping find Cassandra Foster, Angie and Jesse Hubbard's (Debbi Morgan and Darnell Williams) daughter, who was recently kidnapped as part of a sex trafficking ring. The character will also interact with Dixie Martin (Cady McClain), who fans will recall Billy Clyde was trying to get to marry him before he plunged to his "death" more than 20 years ago.

"Due to unforeseen circumstances the Jacksonville, Nashville and Cleveland shows have been cancelled. Refunds are available at the point of purchase," is the message posted on the official website of A Tribute to Pine Valley, which has held events around the country honoring the 41 year life and history of ABC's "All My Children."

A character proclaims, "Pine Valley lost a part of its soul that night, but today the sun shines bright." That day in particular is Monday, April 29, when "All My Children" premieres with all new episodes via Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes with Pine Valley's citizens having picked things up five years after that traumatic night Adam Chandler (David Canary) and Brooke English (Julia Barr) celebrated their engagement and a shot went off. Fans will quickly be able to jump right back into the soap where "cute, sexy, action and adventure, romance and sex" may be a simple way to summarize the storytelling on any given daytime soap, but on "AMC" things are just all the better.

Those fans who were a little concerned with the news that Prospect Park’s “All My Children” will be racier, edgier and filled with profanity when it debuts on iTunes, Hulu and Hulu Plus on Monday, April 29 may be able to breathe a slight sigh of relief: According to Darnell Williams (Jesse Hubbard) and Debbi Morgan (Angie Hubbard), the risqué language started strong, but has since taken a bit of a backseat!

For more than 41 years ABC's "All My Children" entertained millions of viewers each and every weekday, week after week, year after year. Sadly, the network canceled the soap in 2011 and the series aired its then final episode in September of that year. Now, in anticipation of its return on Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes on Monday, April 29, The OnLine Network has released a recap of the series as narrated by Debbi Morgan (Angie Hubbard).

If you haven’t yet had a chance to meet some of your favorite “All My Children” stars via the very popular A Tribute to Pine Valley tour, then you’re in luck: Three more dates and locations have been added to the successful tour!

Soap Opera Network has learned that television newcomer Caitlainne Rose Gurreri has landed the heavily recurring role of Eileen on TOLN's "All My Children."
