Over the past three days including today, there has been a mass media-blitz happening in print, television, online, radio to make the public aware of the excitement of the return of All My Children and One Life to Live tomorrow!

On-Air On-Soaps has put together a round up of some of our favorite quotes from various news sources that have run since Friday with One Life’s Robin Strasser, Jennifer Pepperman, Jerry verDorn and Shenaz Treasury and AMC’s Vincent Irizarry, Rob Scott Wilson, Ginger Smith, as well as Prospect Park’s Rich Frank.   Here they are below!

One Life to Live’s Robin Strasser (Dorian) spoke to Huffington Post about her feelings on ABC killing OLTL only to have Prospect Park resurrect it!  “I enjoy holding a grudge. I carry grudges like excess baggage. OK, I’m not wishing personal or family harm, but a badass mistake was made that shot down a lot of jobs, careers and two fabulous shows. If, at some point, they own their mistake or karma’s a bitch and comes around, then so be it. At least I’m sane enough to know I’m not in charge of that.”

One Life to Live’s executive producer, Jennifer Pepperman told The Associated Press when discussing the exciting online return of the beloved series,  “This is a second chance.   It is a wonderful gift.”

Prospect Park’s Rich Frank explained to The Associated Press how the new OLTL and AMC are very much like TV shows! “These are not webisodes. We are shooting television as everyone knows it. This is traditional TV storytelling distributed a different way — and it’s a superior way.”

All My Children’s executive producer Ginger Smith told The Associated Press how she was able to lure top-notch talent back to Pine Valley:  “With every former member of the cast, staff and crew, when I called them they said, ‘We want to get in the trenches with you.’ When I called Cady McClain, she said, ‘Where do you want me and what time do you want me there?’”

All My Children’s Vincent Irizarry (David) spoke to Today about the series ABC finale cliffhanger that will resonate on the new revival:  “That moment took on significant impact in David’s life.  We’re going to see the effects of that (based on) what took place that night at Brooke and Adam’s party. That event continues to propel David forward in the weeks, months and years ahead. He’s going to be that character that viewers know and love to hate.”

One Life to Live’s Jerry verDorn (Clint) spoke to the New Jersey Herald on the shows comeback, the ABC cancellation and getting to be with the core cast of Llanview once again :  “It (the show) looks better than on ABC. The way the show looks it is high quality. I am very pleased …  It (the cancellation) was emotionally tough. I was sorry for the crew … I was elated to be rejoining my friends! … This is very dear to my heart. I remember when I was breaking in, actors would tell me about the transition of shows from radio to television  ….I think this is similarly historic. I’m glad to be part of the changing of the guard.

All My Children’s Rob Scott Wilson (Pete Cortlandt) spoke to The Boston citing,  “Working with Jill Larson, 
who plays my mom on the show, is a blessing.  She makes it so much easier. I have great conversations. I’m in love with Cady McClain and Julia Barr. They welcome us with open arms. If we are overwhelmed, they calm us down.”  Wilson also spoke of his knowledge of soaps! “I grew up with my mom and my grandma, so I watched a lot of daytime.  I was forced to watch with them when I was a little kid. Now, I get to reminisce about that. I know my mom and my family are so excited for me to be a part of this.”

One Life to Live’s Shenaz Treasury (Rama) told Variety in regards to the new shooting schedule which often times goes well into the night:  “It has a feel like it’s new and fresh.  I don’t think we’ve cut back on anything.  16-hour day feels like a luxury for me!”

So AMC and OLTL fans, which quotes did you like the best from the above?  Are you optimistic that the shows can have some legs once they are up and running with all-new episodes tomorrow?  Share your thoughts!

Gotta Love Robin! All the quotes were awesome! Loved them all! Thanks Michael!


Leave it Robin to have the sassiest quote. Love it!


Robin had the nerve to say what she feels without worrying about any Disney/ABC bridges she may be burning. Props!

I also love that the new One Life To Live gave her a line “Screw your reality show. This is my life!”


Rich Franks and Jerry verDorn were the best!!! Thanks Michael… can’t wait!!!


i love robin strasser. she is straight to the point. abc made a huge huge mistake in cancelling one life to live and all my children. i will be watching on monday one life to live and all my children. i live in vancouver bc canada. i will watch it on tv. fx canada. thank you prospect park for bring back our soaps. abc i hope you choke on it. karma is a bitch.

Can ‘t wait!!!!!


I love Robin Strasser also, she tells it like it is like Kim Zimmer! lol


I’m counting the hours. Will probably have to watch the first episodes several times because I know I’ll be overcome with tears of joy. I have missed OLTL like my dearest relative. And why won’t I? I’ve watched since the original debut, July 15, 1968. I’ve watched AMC off and on over the years and now will become a regular viewer.

All the quotes are wonderful. Robin Strasser, you took the words right out of my mouth. I love you.

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
