“All My Children” stars Vincent Irizarry (David Hayward) and Jill Larson (Opal Cortlandt) have both sent messages to fans via social media sites about Prospect Park’s decision to cut the frequency of ‘AMC’ and “One Life to Live” episodes in half, and now Cady McClain (Dixie Martin) is joining the bandwagon. In a detailed blog post on her official website, the Pine Valley veteran assures fans that when it comes to the future of both shows, “Every little thing gonna be alright now!”

“Based on our shared history of our beloved show being sent down the tubes [via ABC], radical changes mean loss,” she writes. “Loss feel like shit, let’s just cut to the chase. When someone ‘pulls the rug out’ or does a ‘bait and switch,’ you feel a natural, physical, ‘punch to the gut’ kind of feeling. I know. I had it too. But it is a reaction based on the past, not the facts of the present.

“In my past, I was fired. Then I was forgotten,” she continues. “At various times, I have been loved and then treated like shit. I still have a wincing reaction when any news about the show comes out, like someone is about to punch my grandmother. But that is not happening. No one is punching Grandma. The fact is, nothing is wrong. Let me say it again. The show is not going anywhere.”
