She may be the Queen of Soaps, but Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane, “All My Children;” Genevieve Delatour, “Devious Maids”) didn’t let the royal title stop her from donning quite a peculiar piece of clothing during her time in the “AMC” spotlight.
The Emmy-winning actress attended the NFL Women’s Apparel’s fashion presentation Tuesday at Grand Central Terminal in New York, where she not only wowed in a sequined New York Giants top and glittery floor length skirt, but also revealed her quirkiest item of clothing. “I don’t want to get rid of it; I’ve had it a long time,” she tells Newsday. “It’s a little yellow cropped jacket and it’s a life vest — it has lights and a whistle — and when things got really long and crazy at work on ‘All My Children,’ I would put on my life vest.”
Not exactly the crown you’d expect from La Lucci, but then again, you just never know when it comes to her and fashion — especially because her couture mantra is to be quite daring. “Don’t be afraid to try things,” she urges. “You’ll know if it works, and if it doesn’t, at least you’ve tried.”
Dying to know what’s going to happen between “All My Children’s” Brooke (Julia Barr), Adam (David Canary) and Dimitri (Michael Nader)? Well wait no more, because the-soon-to-be (or not-to-be) onscreen Mrs. Chandler has revealed what’s in store for the savvy journalist’s future with the two men and more!
Longtime “All My Children” fans couldn’t believe it when news broke that Michael Nader would be bringing his popular alter ego, Dimitri Marick, back to the show. And even though it’s been over a month since his June 12 onscreen debut, it’s still a little bit hard to believe that he’s really back in Pine Valley — even for the actor himself! And it turns out, it was a return that nearly didn’t happen.
“I got a call from my daughter, who said, ‘Dad, I just got an email from someone named Ginger in regards to ‘All My Children.’ She wants to talk to you,” says the actor about how he and executive producer Ginger Smith got in contact. “And lo and behold, [Ginger] said, ‘I’d been trying to find you for three weeks, and I just told the writers that mostly likely I’m going to have to pull off of writing for you, because we couldn’t find you. You’ve been well hidden, Mr. Michael.’”
Susan Lucci has been busy filming “Devious Maids” and “Deadly Affairs,” all the while trying to swing by her old stomping grounds, “All My Children,” where she played Erica Kane from 1970 to 2011. She’s also taken the time to help promote the Smithsonian’s upcoming daytime television exhibit, and she appeared on “Katie” Wednesday. But that’s not all the Queen of Soaps has been up to! Soap Opera Network just got word that the New York native has been in talks to host this year’s Rock the Dock Summer Bash benefiting the Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor, NY, and she has officially been announced as the event’s MC!
Set your DVRs folks, because Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane, “All My Children;” Genevieve Delatour, “Devious Maids”) is headed to the daytime talk show, “Katie!”
For the special appearance, the Queen of Soaps will be discussing her experience filming for the Marc Cherry created and Eva Longoria (ex-Isabella Williams, “The Young and the Restless”) produced Lifetime soap, “Devoius Maids,” as well as — you guessed it — whether or not she’ll actually be returning to “AMC.”
Continue after the jump for a sneak preview of the episode, which airs on Wednesday, July 10 (check local listings for time and station).

The OnLine Network has announced that on Wednesday, July 10, “All My Children” fans will finally get a chance to catch a glimpse of Alicia Minshew as Kendall Hart, who we recently discovered had divorced Zach Slater (Thorsten Kaye) between the end of the ABC incarnation to the current TOLN version of the soap.

With word that “All My Children’s” Eden Riegel (Bianca Montgomery) was with child, you’d think that would be enough for the writing team of The OnLine Network’s popular anytime soap to handle (deciding whether to somehow write it in or to not, if even remotely possible), but now comes word that another actress is also with child!
