Before taking on the Kardashians in the Hamptons later this week, "All My Children's" Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane) was in Anaheim, California on Friday, August 14 to receive her Disney Legends Award, which was presented by Bob Iger, Chairman and CEO, The Walt Disney Company.

Susan Lucci, former star of "All My Children" (ex-Erica Kane) and a "Dancing with the Stars" contestant, will be joined by Blondie legend Debbie Harry, Christie Brinkley and Brooke Shields for a comedic reading of the 2010 release, "Kardashian Konfidential," reports The New York Post. The ladies will each be taking on the role of one of the Kardashian sisters - Kourtney, Kim and Khloe - as part of the Celebrity Autobiography performance show on Friday, August 21 at the Guild Hall in East Hampton.
The 10th anniversary edition of "Dancing with the Stars" will launch on Monday, March 16 at 8:00 PM, ET/PT, ABC recently announced.

It seems like forever ago since we reported Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane, "All My Children") got a wonderful surprise while visiting NBCUniversal's syndicated daytime talker, "The Meredith Vieira Show," via a reunion of sorts with former "AMC" co-star, Walt Willey (ex-Jackson Montgomery). In your first look at the episode, airing Tuesday, December 2, Lucci tells host Meredith Vieira how her character on the ABC Daytime soap opera helped many immigrants learn to speak English. Later the two take part in a Soap Opera Showdown, which included Willey as a surprise participant alongside Lucci.
An odd question for sure, but while on his book tour promoting his newest title, "The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Year," Bravo TV executive and "Watch What Happens Live" host Andy Cohen was recently posed the question, "If Susan Lucci [ex-Erica Kane, 'All My Children'] showed up at your door naked, what would you do?" For reference: He'd give her a robe!
Susan Lucci portrayed the iconic role of Erica Kane on ABC's "All My Children" for more than 41 years. Sadly, the character would last be seen on September 23, 2011, when a shot rang out during an event that brought Pine Valley's most prominent citizens together. Despite Prospect Park bringing back the series for a short-lived online iteration in 2013, Lucci was unfortunately not part of the cast. Currently pulling double duty as host of the Investigation Discovery series, "Deadly Affairs," and starring in Lifetime's "Devious Maids," Lucci recently told Soap Opera Network, during an Investigation Discovery/Glamour Magazine event honoring actresses Rosario Dawson, Marcia Gay Harden, Tamara Taylor and Stephanie March, that she remains proud of her daytime run as Erica Kane and that's she's having a great time with where her career has taken her since.

“Days of our Lives’” Kate (Lauren Koslow) wasn’t the only one who was shocked when Jordan (Chrishell Stause) hauled back and slapped her across the face for sleeping with Rafe (Galen Gering): Viewers were a bit surprised to see the formerly timid physical therapist continue to grow her backbone, as well. And when Soap Opera Network recently caught up with Stause, she revealed that this is only the beginning of her alter ego’s catty side.

In 2012, Soap Opera Network published our own version of the annual TV Guide Magazine "TV's Highest Paid Stars" issue.

Although we were unable to continue our report in 2013 due to circumstances beyond our control, we thought it would be a great opportunity to continue producing the soap opera edition of one of TV Guide's best selling issues with the release of the 2014 edition.
