“Good Morning America” is set to reveal the new “Dancing with the Stars” cast live on Tuesday, March 8, between 7 am and 9 am, on ABC. Over the years the competition series has featured an array of daytime stars, most memorably first season champ Kelly Monaco (Sam McCall, “General Hospital”).

Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane, “All My Children;” Genevieve Delatour, “Devious Maids”) opened up about her grandson’s battle with cerebral palsy on a recent episode of “The Dr. Oz Show.” Together, Lucci and her daughter, Liza Huber (ex-Gwen Winthrop, “Passions”), shared the emotions they went through upon learning Liza’s son Brendan, now 7, had the non-progressive neurological disorder.
Best known for his starring role as Steve Elliott in the CBS sitcom “Petticoat Junction,” actor Mike Minor has died.

He was 75 years old.
Since being brought back to ABC’s “General Hospital” in a recurring capacity in 2013, actress Lynn Herring has proven time and time again how viable her role as Lucy Coe is to the legacy of the daytime drama series, particularly in regards to the annual Nurses Ball event. Sadly, the soap hasn’t provided the actress with enough story potential for her character, whose married so many men in Port Charles that she rivals only Pine Valley’s Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) from “All My Children.” Herring recently took to Facebook to share her desire to do more than an average day player appearance on the soap.
Ryan McPartlin (ex-Hank Bennett, “Passions”) is the latest soap alum to join the “Devious Maids” cast. The actor has signed on for a recurring role in season four of the Lifetime mystery drama series.
The death of former “All My Children” actor David Canary (ex-Adam/Stuart) has touched many in the daytime world, among them soap superstar Susan Lucci (ex-Erica).

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!
