If you’ve seen the scandalous “All My Children” love scene between Robert Scott Wilson’s Pete Cortlandt and Brooke Newton’s Colby Chandler, you’re well aware that the online sudser isn’t just pushing the envelope — they’re damn near shoving it! The shockingly sexy episode was even too much for YouTube, having been up only a short time before the website yanked it down. Soap Opera Network caught up with Wilson to get his take on the steamy scenes, as well as some other dirt regarding Pete’s escapades in Pine Valley.
“All My Children” made headlines with the oh, so steamy sex scene between Pete Cortlandt (Robert Scott Wilson) and Colby Chandler (Brooke Newton) last week, but can they replicate it this week when Cassandra Foster (Sal Stowers) is literally needing revival by the town punching bag, David Hayward (Vincent Irizarry), or when JR (Ryan Bittle) does something special for Cara (Lindsay Hartley)? You’ll have to tune into “AMC” during the weeks of June 17 and June 24 to find out, but Soap Opera Network has your first look at what’s ahead in those coming weeks!
With the 40th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards slated to happen today (Sunday, June 16), the entire daytime industry has been abuzz with excitement and preparation. Friday’s Creative Arts Emmys kicked off the weekend-long celebration, and some of soap operas biggest stars came out to support the behind-the-scenes teams responsible for bringing “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “Days of our Lives,” “General Hospital,” “One Life to Live” and “The Young and the Restless” to life! Read on for the scoop on that, as well as to find out how some are prepping for today’s star-studded event!
The Wednesday, June 12 episode of “All My Children” featured a hot and somewhat controversial sex scene between Pete Cortlandt (Robert Scott Wilson) and Colby Chandler (Brooke Newton) that was so steamy that it violated YouTube’s Terms of Service. TOLNSoaps, the official YouTube page for The OnLine Network, uploaded the scene to their page only to find the message “This video has been removed because its content violated YouTube’s Terms of Service.” Viewers were advised to click on the YouTube TOS page to learn more.
Robert Scott Wilson has taken “All My Children” by storm as Opal Cortlandt’s (Jill Larson) son, Pete Cortlandt. So much so, that he’s fast becoming a Pine Valley tycoon even his own father, Palmer, wouldn’t have messed with!
“He’s such a businessman; he loves a challenge, and he loves to… just have that winning attitude,” says Wilson of his alter ego’s go-get-em attitude — a frame of mind that is definitely already starting to get the junior mogul into a lot of trouble. For instance, not only is he chasing after Celia (Jordan Lane Price), a girl who comes with heaps of typical soap baggage, he’s also already struck a deal with the devil — David Hayward (Vincent Irizarry) — a mere few weeks after viewers saw him cruise into town! The latter of which the actor says has created quite a buzz from fans. “They take it so personal,” he says with amusement, adding that it’s been an insanely fun storyline to play. “It’s just crazy to know all of the storylines that took place and how snaky [David] is about everything, and riding that fine line makes it really fun to play, because we’re both trying to get something from each other — but at the same time, we both have our ulterior motives.”
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.
If you thought Oprah Winfrey giving away cars was a big deal, wait until you see what CBS Daytime has in store for the week of April 22 through the 26, when “The Talk,” “The Price Is Right,” and “Let’s Make a Deal” participate in the network’s exciting Big Money Week!
To kick off the major moolah event, “The Price Is Right” host Drew Carey and “Let’s Make a Deal” host Wayne Brady are joining up for a live online chat on CBS.com, which will take place on Monday, April 22 at 2:00 PM, ET/11:00 AM, PT.
The OnLine Network’s “All My Children” has a new logo, a new home, new actors and of course, a new theme song. Fans have already been privy to details on the first three fresh and shiny elements on that list, and low and behold, it looks like we may have all been subtly introduced to the last one, as well!
Gun shots, punches, returning sons and frightened daughters, “this is not some one way mirror looking at the world we’re in,” but it is “All My Children.”
“Seeing my cast come in one-by-one. Seeing David Canary, seeing Cady McClain, seeing Jill Larson, Debbi Morgan…it just made it all the more real,” says Ginger Smith, executive producer, “All My Children,” in the newly released “First Day of School” video by iTunes set to music by Raphael Lake/Ben Fisher with their song “Light It Up.” The EP and her cast members comment on the show returning to production nearly six weeks after it was first announced by Prospect Park’s The OnLine Network that the soap along with “One Life to Live” would be returning to the airwaves in more than one shape or form once again this spring (later revealed to be April 29, 2013 via Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes).
