(SoapOperaNetwork.com) – Susan Lucci has taken to Twitter by announcing that she is heading into her final week of taping at ABC’s “All My Children,” although she doesn’t make it clear whether or not she will be moving on to the Prospect Park version of the soap when it debuts in January 2012.
Heading towards my last week of All My Children..very emotional time yet excited to see David Canary & Julia Barr again! – Susan Lucci
Wednesday, August 31 is the last day that cast and crew of “All My Children” will be employed by the network, leaving Prospect Park to sign deals with the soon-to-be unemployed talent in order to properly re-launch the show in the coming months. There is no official word on who is staying, although we already know that Debbi Morgan (Angie Hubbard) and Jacob Young (JR Chandler) will not be part of the soap when Prospect Park takes over as each are heading to “The Young and the Restless” and “The Bold and the Beautiful,” respectively.
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — On Thursday, July 21, ABC Soaps in Depth reported that Kelly Sullivan had been hired as a recast Kate Howard after more than a year since we last saw the character (last played by Megan Ward). Now Soap Opera Network has learned when you can catch your first glimpse of the actress.
In In Depth‘s posting they indicated that Kate “will be looking a bit different after all that time recently spent in Paris and Milan,” but that’s only half the story! Just wait until Kate comes face-to-face with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard), her high school boyfriend and supposedly the loves of each other’s lives, or she was until Sonny remembered Brenda Barrett (Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo) at this point last year.
In addition to “GH,” Sullivan has appeared in episodes of “As The World Turns” and “One Life to Live” along with a guest-stint in “Law & Order: Criminal Intent.” She’ll appear in the film “333″ co-starring with “The Young and the Restless’” Camryn Grimes (ex-Cassie Newman) which is set for release in 2012.
Sullivan’s first airdate is scheduled for Monday, September 12.

IT HAPPENED TODAY…
Lily was upset that Cane broke his word about staying away from her and the babies. He told her not to blame the nanny, he happened to come upon them but he wasn’t going to turn away from seeing his children; he missed and loved them. Lily stressed to them that their relationship was over with. He understood but it was clear that he missed her. While still in the park, a man approached Cane and served him with divorce papers.
Daniel was still waiting for Lily to return back to Jimmy’s bar. He wondered what was taking her so long. Eden and Kevin were keeping him company when Noah, Hunter and Devon walked in. Eden wasn’t pleased at seeing the pretty blonde near her ex-boyfriend. Noah introduced Hunter to Kevin and Daniel, and they all wished Daniel a happy birthday.
Katherine was with Paul at the house discussing what he’s found out regarding Tucker’s long lost son. He told her based on the forensic analysis, they have a good chance of learning the timeframe of the actual letter. Paul deduced that Tucker’s son had to be around the age of 26. Paul, however, warned Katherine not to get too happy on what he’s found out so far; it was still a long shot in finding her grandson. As they were talking, Paul discussed that the mother of Tucker’s son was someone that may not have been just a one- time fling.
Colin assumed that Jill would be pleased with him that he was proving that he loved her by telling Genevieve that their marriage was over. Jill, however, didn’t buy it. She thought it was all an act to win her over. When he got up to leave, Katherine arrived and chastised Jill for hanging around him. Katherine sat down and Jill told Katherine that she wasn’t at all with him. Meanwhile back at her house, still seething in anger at Colin’s bombshell, Genevieve was nursing her hurt hand, vowing that that Colin wouldn’t be leaving her; it would be the other way around.
Tucker was doing his best to go over business documents when Sofia arrived. She brought over new contracts for him. He was telling her that he was making progress in understanding a bit more clearly. He, however did become frustrated at still needing help. Their conversation took on a personal note when Tucker admitted that Ashley and he weren’t on good terms. Sofia in turn shared that Malcolm and her were no longer together, either. She told him about the baby possibly not being his and admitted to have slept with Neil.
Cane met Colin at Crimson Lights. His father wanted him to go spend some time with Genevieve. Cane didn’t want to do that, but when Colin told him that he was going to divorce her, he immediately jumped on him for doing it just to get closer to Jill. Once again, Colin stressed for Cane to go see his mother, telling him that she’s going to need someone to lean on. Cane agreed and headed over there. When he arrived, Genevieve came down the stairs and figured that Colin was the one that sent him to check up on her. Cane told her he was aware of the divorce. A bitter Genevieve told her son that she didn’t need anything from the likes of her husband. Cane told her that being divorced from Colin was the best thing for him. She shot back if he would feel the same way when Lily ended their marriage. He got upset and was ready to leave when she stopped him. She learned that Lily in fact did serve him with divorce papers. Meanwhile, Colin met with his divorce lawyer, determined to get things moving on ending his marriage.
Lily made her way back to Jimmy’s and privately told Daniel about her run in with Cane. He thought that she would want to have some private time to herself, but she told him that she wanted to celebrate his birthday with him. After they enjoyed birthday cake with their friends, the two of them departed. She took him to a private suite at the Athletic Club. Daniel became flustered, not realizing that Lily was truly ready to move forward with what was going on between the two of them. She soon started to kiss them, and they were ready to have sex with one another. As things started to heat up, Lily suddenly started to think about her times of sex with Cane and instantly pulled back, telling Daniel that she couldn’t go through with it.
Devon asked Hunter if she had her internship yet with Restless Style but she said even when it came through, she would still need a job to cover the cost of living there. Noah found a sure solution by telling her that there was a job opening at Crimson Lights for a barista. When he gushed how they could spend more time together while she was working there, a jealous Eden quickly blocked the girl’s joy by telling her that the job was no longer available. She told a crushed Hunter that she took the job. Kevin skeptically went along with it but pulled his sister to the side and questioned her suddenly wanting the job. She said she changed her mind but Kevin said she only did it because she didn’t want to see Noah getting closer to Hunter.
Paul called Katherine and let her know that he found several pictures of Tucker and a woman together. He wondered if the woman could be the one that is kept her son from him. He told her that he would be looking into who the woman was.
Cane entered Jimmy’s to pick up his check. Devon asked him why he was there if it was his night off. When Cane told him, a skeptical Devon asked if he know that Lily was going to be there. Cane said he didn’t know she would even be there. A nerve was hit when Devon told him that Lily and Daniel left the bar together.
Katherine and Jill were still together at Gloworm when Genevieve showed up. Jill told her that if she was there to talk about Colin divorcing her, it had nothing to do with her. Genevieve coolly shared that before he made his phone call to end his marriage, hours earlier, he was with her, having sex together. Jill didn’t believe her. Genevieve told her whether they got divorced or not, Colin would never be over her.

IT HAPPENED TODAY…
Sam went to see Sharon in the jail visitation area. Avery showed up to meet them. Sam told her that it would be hard for her to get anywhere with Adam but thought the best place to start would be with Phyllis, who was keeping tabs on him from the very beginning. Sharon disagreed with that idea, pointing out that Phyllis would do anything to twist things and pretty much couldn’t be trusted. Sam said it was worth a shot.
Phyllis ran into Daniel at Crimson Lights and wished him a happy birthday. It was obvious things were tense between the two of them. She wanted to do something with him but he declined. Lily arrived at that moment and asked Daniel if he was ready to go celebrate. Phyllis wasn’t pleased that the they wre together, and started listing off how it was a bad idea, since she was still married. Lily told her that she was getting a divorce. The two of them left before Phyllis could have anything else to say.
Kevin was at Gloworm with Eden when Gloria spotted them, instantly going into mother mode. She wanted to cheer him up since it was his anniversary of being married to Jana. He told her he was doing just fine. When she mentioned Chloe, he broke the news that they were not together anymore. She tried to play match-maker but a freaked Kevin said he didn’t need anyone in his life. He and Eden quickly exited the restaurant.
Across the way, Cane was on his way out when Jill approached him. She wanted him to sit with her and talk. She admitted that while she was still heartbroken and angry at how he treated her, she missed him. She shared the news about Chance and Billy, on how she was unable to talk to him, and admitted that she missed talking with him. He apologized for what he put her through and promised to not do it to her again. While she admitted she was a fool to trust him again, she would slowly let him back into her life, but if he ever betrayed her, it would be over.
Colin went to see Genevieve. He wanted to know if the two of them could have a truce; he no longer wanted all of their fighting to give people more reason to hate them. Genevieve pointed out that he brought out all of his troubles on himself. As for Colin, he wanted to know if she was going to continue to punish him for Samantha’s death. The two exchanged heated barbs with one another. He snatched her by the arm and the two fell into a heated kiss. When she pulled away and attempted to walk upstairs, he cornered her again, kissing her. The two soon headed upstairs to have sex.
Phyllis was back at Restless Style when one of her co-workers told her about a man coming by to see her. Phyllis assumed that it was Deacon but was wrong when Sam appeared, asking her to come see Sharon with him. She balked at the idea, but went anyway. When she got there, Sharon was less than pleased to see her. While Phyllis admitted that she didn’t believe that Sharon killed anyone, she took her to task on her lack of mothering skills, especially to hook up with Sam and let all believe she was dead. Sam tried to get them back on the actual subject at hand: helping clear her name. When Phyllis got a bit antsy, Sam told her to be patient and wait for Avery, Sharon’s D.A. to come back. Meanwhile, Avery clearly wasn’t in any rush to head back to the jailhouse to meet up to hear what Phyllis had to say.
At Jimmy’s Daniel and Lily were settling in for a quiet time together for her birthday. While she stepped away, Eden and Kevin arrived. Daniel was surprised at how much she’s changed. Kevin felt awful for forgetting his birthday, but Daniel understood. Eden joined them and set up a birthday karaoke party for all of them. They all got ready to set up things when Lily got a call. The nanny called to ask about Maddie’s blanket and Lily headed out to go give it to her. While she was on her way, Cane, who was in the park, spotted the nanny with Maddie and Charlie. He started to talk to them and bond with them, telling them how much he missed the two of them. It was at that moment Lily showed up, wanting to know why he was there with the kids. Back at Jimmy’s, after singing some karaoke, Daniel started to wonder where Lily was, unaware that she was detained dealing with Cane.
Colin showed up at Gloworm and wanted to know how Jill was doing. She commented that he just missed his son. Colin quipped how it was nice that she was making amends with Cane and wondered if she would ever feel the same way about him. Jill told him that wasn’t going to happen. Colin continued to profess how much he loved her and in an attempt to prove it, called Genevieve to tell her that he was divorcing her. After getting off the phone with him, Genevieve, who was at the house, went into a fit of rage, destroying the house.

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — As previously reported, the cast of “All My Children” have received offers from Prospect Park to return to the series upon re-launch in January 2012, nearly four months after the series completes its ABC run. According to Deadline Hollywood‘s Nellie Andreeva, Prospect Park is offering Susan Lucci (Erica Kane) virtually the same salary she’s currently receiving from ABC.
In her Deadline.com posting, Andreeva states Lucci “is currently mulling the offer. While there will probably be some budget trimming due to the medium switch, it looks like AMC and OLTL‘s’ new producers are stepping up to keep the shows’ biggest stars and fan favorites.AMC and OLTL are scheduled to relaunch online in the first quarter of 2012. Prospect Park is also in talks with cable networks about carving out a traditional TV window.”
Should Prospect secure Lucci, it will mark the first public sign of confidence from an “AMC” actor since news of the deal between Prospect Park and Disney/ABC Television Group was announced on Thursday, July 7. The series has already lost Debbi Morgan (Angie Hubbard) to “The Young and the Restless” and Jacob Young (JR Chandler) to “The Bold and the Beautiful,” although for Morgan she made her deal with the the Sony Pictures Television produced “Y&R” before news of Prospect even came to light. Young announced his post-”AMC” plans on Monday, August 15.

IT HAPPENED TODAY…
Paul and Ronan looked over the latest evidence: the pillows that were placed in Diane’s room. They both wondered if the killer was dropping out clues. Abby arrived and asked if they arrested Tucker yet. Ronan said no, more evidence was needed. When he suggested she wear a wire, she balked.
Tucker stopped at Ashley’s suite with her mail. She told him that she was going to go to the funeral for Diane. He said they should go together. He wanted her to come back home but she wasn’t moving back. She said she didn’t know how they could go forward after the way he treated Abby and placed a rift between the two of them.
Jack and Kyle were getting ready to head to the church for the funeral. Kyle asked if anyone would come to pay their respects to his mother. Jack couldn’t answer that. Meanwhile, at the church, Lauren was the first to arrive. She looked up and saw Adam walk in. He wanted to pay his respect to Diane before everyone else arrived. Lauren suggested that he stay but Adam said that he knew that people wouldn’t like him being there, after all he had little friends there. Lauren suggested he stay anyway.
Victoria and Nick had coffee together at Crimson Lights. She was still shaking off her mood regarding Billy not being there. Nick suggested they do something else together but Victoria said she was going to head to the funeral. She said she wanted to be there for Kyle since his uncle, Billy, could not be. Nick gave his sis his new cell phone number, telling her that he got it changed to avoid constant telemarketers calling. Victoria was set to go get ready but Nick said that he’d go in her place at the funeral. When she left, he received a call: the mystery person played the recorded message again of Nick threatening to kill Diane.
Deacon showed up at Restless Style. He wanted Phyllis to know that he saw her and Diane arguing and then her chasing Diane through the park holding a rock. She wanted to know if he was trying to get something off of her, but he told her that he only wanted one thing from her: a date with her. He said he was attracted to her and wanted a date. Phyllis scoffed at his demand but they were interrupted when staffer came in. He told her he’d call her to see what they could do.
Detective Mauro let Ronan and Paul know that a security camera was stolen from the park. They both figured it was during the night of Diane’s murder. Ronan suggested they go to the funeral to see who would or wouldn’t show up. In the meantime, back at Ashley’s suite, she opened up an envelope as was shocked to see a photograph of her at the park during the night she confronted Diane.
Jack learned from Kyle that he hid his Harvard class ring when the police were over searching his home. As they were set to head to the funeral, others were already coming. Michael wasm’t pleased to see Adam there but Lauren told him that she suggested he stay; they needed to all show support for Kyle. Ronan and Paul arrived, followed by Victor. Victor approached Adam and continued to point the finger at him, while Adam did the same thing.
Ashley found Nick and told him about the photograph. From a distance Tucker watched the two of them, as well as Phylllis. Ronan approached Nick and Ashley. He told Nick that he has his phone records and knows that he called Ashley during the night of the crime. Across from them, Tucker told Abby that he knows that she was the one that went to Ronan on him and that nobody would believe her. He promised that despite her trying to get him in trouble, he’d remain quiet about her running him down.
The funeral got under way. Jack was first to go up and speak about Diane. He told him that while Diane was gone, she was very much with him through Kyle. Michael also shared words for his friend. When the funeral wrapped up, Ronan caught everyone off guard by having them stay. He started to list off the things he found while processing the crime scene. He mentioned that there were footprints, jewelry and a key that were found. He also tossed out that he knows based off of Diane’s phone records, she called a good half of those in the room to see her that night. Ronan asked if those there are willing to put their trust in someone that could be setting them up to take the fall to cover their own tails. He left, obviously doing what he set out to do: making each person very nervous.
Kyle and Jack went back into the church to have a private moment to say good-bye to Diane. Victor approached and handed a picture of the three of them together. Kyle hugged and thanked Victor and followed Lauren to get the condolences book, Alone, Victor taunted Jack about the custody of Kyle. Jack said he wasn’t going to allow that to happen. Victor walked away and Jack softly cursed Diane for trying to keep Kyle away from him, even in death.
Phyllis questioned Nick and Ashley’s sudden need to talk to one another; Tucker did the same with Ashley. Adam confronted Paul and Ronan, wanting the letter that would clear him from the SEC scandal. When Ronan questioned him about the large sums of money in a Swiss bank account, Adam got huffy and said they’d be talking to his lawyer. Paul and Ronan both readied themselves to see who else would draw attention to themselves.

IT HAPPENED TODAY…
Lauren and Michael are at Crimson Lights together. Kevin tells them that he and Chloe broke up. Michael wanted to go talk to him but Lauren suggested they give him some time. Picking up the newspaper, they talked about Diane’s murder. Lauren commented on how hard it must be for Kyle to deal with losing his mother. As for Kyle, he and Jack are at home. He wanted to see the place where his mother was killed but Jack didn’t think it was a good idea. When the young boy got upset, Jack agreed to take him there to the park.
Nina was at Gloworm getting coffee when she spotted Ronan. When she snarkily wished him a happy birthday, Ronan requested her not to wish him one. Nina expressed her anger at how he used both her and Chance and left town. She was unable to continue talking to him and left him before he could muster a word to her.
Katherine showed up at Tucker’s demanding to know what Ashley and he were up to. When Tucker asked her what she was talking about, she told him about how Ashley agreed to have their marriage annulled as long as Katherine left his company alone. Tucker at first didn’t believe her, but when Katherine accused Ashley of doing it to get something in return, he grew angry. Meanwhile, Abby went to see Ashley and learned that she and Tucker weren’t together. She was happy that she was away from him and assumed that Ashley would be ending the marriage. When Abby realized that her mother was hesitant, she blurted out that she believed that Tucker killed Diane. She told her about the poison sumac rash on his arm and continued to deduce that he killed Diane after she blabbed about the one night stand. Ashley told her that there was no proof of that, but Abby told her mother she was going to tell the police about it.
At the park, a heartbroken Kyle wanted to know what his mother did to make someone want to kill her. Jack was unable to answer that question, but tried his best to comfort his son. They soon headed over to Crimon Lights where they ran into Michael. He offered his condolences to Kyle. When Jack got a phone call, he stepped away. Alone with Michael, Kyle wanted to know why everyone hated his mother. Jack returned and told Kyle that they could head to Diane’s suite to collect his belongings. Before letting them leave, Michael offered to do the funeral arrangements.
Nina returned back to the Chancellor mansion and saw Paul there. He was there to meet Katherine on his search for Tucker’s son. Things became tense between the two of them. Paul wanted to know if they should just realize that things weren’t working out between them as a couple. She softened a bit, and the two talked. He received a call from Ronan, who wanted to see him at the police station. Nina told Paul she had seen him and wondered if it were wrong to have such distain for her son. Paul comforted her with a hug. Nina told him she missed her best friend.
At the police station, Ronan questioned Detective Muro about leaking the crime scene photographs. She told him that her department would never do that. He didn’t believe her. Abby walked in at that moment and told Ronan that she had to tell him about Tucker. She told him about the poison sumac on his arm and his constant use of calamine lotion to try to get rid of the itch. She also brought up his affair with Diane and how he had perfect opportunity and reason to murder her. Ronan took that into account and decided to pay Tucker a visit.
Katherine told a concerned Neil about her wanting to regain complete control of Jabot. He said it would be tricky to do but she told him that she wanted to make sure she saved Tucker from himself no matter what. Neil left to go talk it over with the board. When he returned back to the restaurant, he told Katherine that they were very concerned with her proposal but were willing to take the gamble.
Ashley returned to Tucker’s suite. He quetioned her about her agreement to annul the marriage. She told him that she did it because she didn’t want him to lose everything he worked for. She in turn told him that she was aware that he confessed his affair with Diane to Abby. He admitted to being the cause of Abby spiraling out of control. He told her that he was a better man because of her, willing to change his ways. Ashley, however didn’t know if she could believe him. While they were talking, Ronan arrived, wanting to question Tucker a bit more. Ashley left the two of them alone. Ronan immediately started questioning him about his bandaged arm. Tucker continued to lie that it was carpal tunnel. He didn’t believe him. Tucker told him that if he didn’t have a warrant of any kind, he could leave. As he was departing, Ronan told Tucker that calamine lotion can’t cure the rash he has.
Katherine returned home to find Paul and Nina together. Nina left the two of them alone. Paul filled Katherine in on what he’s found out so far about Tucker’s son. Paul grew concerned when Katherine wanted to keep going further with the search for Tucker’s son, without filling him in.
A park employee came to the police station to report that ther security camera was stolen. Mauro took down the information, realizing that the camera was here at the time of the murder. It is shown that a mysterious person has the camera hooked up to a laptop, looking at footage of Ashley the night of her confrontation with Diane.
Abby is Gloworm having a drink when she suddenly has a flash of memory. She remembers being in the Genoa City Athletic Club washing dirt off of her hands.
Jack and Kyle went to Diane’s hotel suite. Ronan told them that they gathered whatever evidence they needed to, but they could gather up whatever items belonged to Kyle or what he wanted as a rememberance of his mother.
