“All My Children” makes its online debut this spring, and Prospect Park is pulling out all of the stops to make sure it’s a success. Several actors have tweeted that the new writing for the show is outstanding, and fans were happy to hear that some of their beloved actors — Eden Riegel (Bianca Montgomery), Alicia Minshew (Kendall Hart Slater) and Cady McClain (Dixie Cooney) — were headed back to the show. But could Josh Duhamel (Leo DuPres) be another familiar face headed back to Pine Valley?
Viewers keeping up with the latest "All My Children" comings and goings news know that Daytime Emmy nominated actress Alicia Minshew has been in discussions to return the internet revival of the soap opera she starred in from 2002 to 2011. TV Line broke the news on Thursday afternoon that the return of the eldest child of Erica Kane (Susan Lucci), Kendall Hart, as portrayed by Minshew is now a done deal. Minshew will make her return sooner than expected; she tapes scenes opposite Eden Riegel, who plays Kendall's little sister Bianca Montgomery, later today as "AMC" wraps up its first round of taping. Seconds before TV Line put up the news bulletin, Minshew took to Twitter to exclaim to fans her impending plans: "Guess who is popping into Pine Valley for the day?...um me! Excited to see the gang tomorrow! Gonna wear Kendall's sassy shoes!!"

Prospect Park has asked “All My Children” cast members to keep a lid on details regarding the new Pine Valley — but did you really think they’d be able to keep quiet about everything for long? Heck no! There’s plenty of behind-the-scenes buzz flying around Facebook and Twitter, and from what we can tell, AMC 2.0 is going to rock your world!First of all, there’s a rumor going around that we may — just may — catch a glimpse of Dr. David Hayward’s yummy tush. If your heart is pumping a little faster over that bit of delicious news, he’ll no doubt be glad (he is a cardiologist, after all)! Could we also be privy to seeing Pine Valley’s other sexy doc, Griffin, in the nude? “I don’t know!” tweets portrayer Jordi Vilasuso. “I’ve heard things, but I haven’t been asked for the Full Monty.”
Deadline is reporting that Eden Riegel is returning to TOLN's "All My Children" to once again portray Bianca Montgomery for a cameo guest arc. Riegel last appeared on "AMC" in January 2010.

Kamar de los Reyes left ABC's "One Life to Live" in 2009 after portraying the uber popular role of Antonio Vega off and on for nearly 14 years. When he joined the soap in 1995, the character was introduced as a former gang member recently released from prison after serving time for killing a man. As the eldest son of Carlotta Vega, Antonio was able to prove the crime was in fact an act of self defense with help from Nora Buchanan. In "Call of Duty: Black Ops II," which was released in November 2012, de los Reyes portrays Raul Menendez the terrorist behind a new world at war that is set in the year 2025. The game, also starring some of Hollywood's biggest stars including Sam Worthington, Michelle Rodriguez and Michael Keaton with appearances by former soap stars Eden Riegel ("All My Children") and Brianna Brown ("General Hospital"), grossed over $500 million on its first day of release. The team at Treyarch Invention made the game so real-life like that de los Reyes is now immortalized as a very recognizable video game character, despite the evil things the character induces.

It was recently announced that Darnell Williams would be joining the cast of "The Young and the Restless" in 2012. The two-time Daytime Emmy Award winner becomes the forth "All My Children" actor to land on the high rated CBS daytime dramas since the 41-year old ABC soap went off the air in September 2011. He joins Jacob Young who returned to "The Bold and the Beautiful" last September, and past and future co-stars Debbi Morgan and Melissa Claire Egan.
"All My Children" ended its television run on Friday, September 23, 2011, but pop-culture artist David O'Keefe has captured the essence of what made the soap opera special to millions of viewers for more than 41-years courtesy of his new painting "A Tribute to 'All My Children' - Pine Valley," which took two months from concept to fruition.
Early this afternoon, Entertainment Weekly broke the news that daytime's number one drama, "The Young and the Restless," has put another former "All My Children" star on contract to join Genoa City's ranks. This happens just several weeks after wooing the ABC Daytime drama's acclaimed and long-time casting director, Judy Blye Wilson. The CBS drama and Wilson have snatched up one of Wilson's most popular Pine Valley finds, Melissa Claire Egan. Beginning on November 11, Egan will debut in the contract role of mystery woman Chelsea.

Sometimes you can't be two places at once. Thankfully, there are people willing to lend a hand. Professional photographer and sometimes writer Thomas Montalto was on hand for the annual Absolute Eden Riegel fan event last month and helped Soap Opera Network cover the event with pictures (see below) and even an interview. Unfortunately, just after this interview took place we would learn that Riegel was being let go from her contract role as Heather Stevens on "The Young and the Restless" before the actress was even told! Twitter broke the story to the actress before she was told by her bosses. In light of the actress completing filming at the CBS soap on Thursday, September 29, Soap Opera Network presents to you one of Riegel's last interviews before she marks her grand exit from Genoa City in the coming weeks.
