Dorothy’s ruby red slippers are to movie buffs what “All My Children’s” Cluck Cluck Chicken Shack suit is to soap opera buffs: Memorable, iconic and totally museum worthy. And thanks to a recent partnership between The Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History and the National Academy of Televisions Arts & Sciences, things like Tad Martin’s (Michael E. Knight) bright yellow suit — along with many other daytime TV artifacts and memorabilia — just may be appearing alongside those “Wizard Of Oz” slippers!
“General Hospital’s” Jack Wagner (Frisco Jones) has been a busy man. In addition to his upcoming Sunday, March 17 appearance on “Celebrity Apprentice” with “All My Children’s” Susan Lucci (Erica Kane), which you can read more about here, he’s also set to appear on Nick at Nite’s original series, “See Dad Run”!
The live-action family comedy follows David Hobbs (played by Scott Baio), who, after ten years of starring as America’s favorite TV dad, becomes a stay-at-home father to honor the deal he made with his soap star wife (Alanna Ubach), so she may return to the spotlight.
If you’re over the moon about the fact that Eden Riegel has reprised her role as “All My Children’s” Bianca Montgomery on TOLN’s version of the iconic soap, someone has you beat: The actress herself! “I’m so excited to be back playing Bianca again; it’s so surreal,” she exclaims. “I feel like I’m living in a dream.”
If you think “All My Children’s” Susan Lucci (Erica Kane) and “General Hospital’s” Jack Wagner (Frisco Jones) have done it all, think again: The two are now joining forces — or rather facing off — on NBC’s hit reality competition program, “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.”
“All My Children” makes its online debut this spring, and Prospect Park is pulling out all the stops to make sure it’s a success. Several actors have already tweeted that the new writing for the show is outstanding, and fans were happy to hear that some of their favorites — 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 this spring?
Viewers keeping up with the latest “All My Children” comings and goings news know that Daytime Emmy Award nominated actress Alicia Minshew has been in discussions to return to the internet revival of the soap opera, which she starred on from 2002 to 2011. TVLine 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 TVLine 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!!”
He wooed the ladies on “General Hospital,” and now Ingo Rademacher is set to woo America as a contestant on the 16th season of “Dancing With The Stars.” Paired with dancer Kym Johnson, Rademacher will be competing against a very diverse cast, including country star Wynonna Judd, “American Idol” alum Kellie Pickler, actress Zendayz Coleman, comedian Andy Dick, Olympic skater Dorothy Hamill, comedian D.L. Hughley, football player Jacoby Jones, boxer Victor Ortiz, Olympic gymnast Alexandra Raisman, and reality star Lisa Vanderpump.
On today’s edition of “The View,” Susan Lucci revealed that the return of her alter ego, Erica Kane, to the online relaunch of “All My Children” is currently not in the cards. Fans of the popular soap opera and the legendary character should not despair though. The petite diva enthusiastically added, “I want with all my heart to return.” Lucci further elaborated to the women of “The View” that all the parties involved are “working so hard to make that [return] happen.”
Daytime legend Susan Lucci, who portrayed Erica Kane on all 41 years of “All My Children,” will be appearing on the Monday, February 25 edition of ABC’s “The View.” The actress is expected to sit down with the ladies to discuss her new Lifetime series “Devious Maids,” and the second season of her Investigation Discovery series “Deadly Affairs.”
Earlier today, Prospect Park announced that actress Julia Barr will reprise her role of Brooke English on TOLN’s “All My Children,” which resumes production on Monday, February 25.
Barr, who last appeared during the finale episode of the soap opera’s ABC run in September 2011, has signed on as a series regular, a Prospect Park representative tells Soap Opera Network. The actress had previously appeared on the soap in a recurring capacity after being dropped from contract status in December 2006.
