Victor Alfieri is debuting this week on All My Children in the role of a photographer named Ciro.  Alfieri no stranger to daytime fans from his role on B&B and DAYS, chatted with We Love Soaps to give fans a sneek peak as to what is behind this mysterious new character and how will it affect the lives of the women of Pine Valley!

Victor Alfieri on this role of Ciro: “He lives in his own world.  He doesn’t follow any rules, he doesn’t respect anybody, but in a good way.  He’s a very famous photographer.  He thinks he is The Man and that people should just go to him.  It’s funny to play because he’s a little cocky, but I’m playing him likable.  He will make you laugh.  He’s fun to play, and I think he’s fun to watch.  He provides that comedic relief that every soap needs.  So I read the material, I called my agent and manager said, “Yes, I want to do this, this is crazy, this is fun.”  It happened very quickly.  I accepted the first week in March, and started working March 10th.  I met with the producer and the casting director, and both ladies are super nice.  I felt right at home.  I felt good inside.  Like, “Wow this is a good family.”  I showed up on set and all these ladies were so beautiful.  I figured, “I’m going to stay here awhile.” 

Victor Alfieri on which of the ladies of fusion or women in Pine Valley that Ciro will take a liking to:  “I shot a lot of episodes with the character of Natalia, Shannon Kane.  I don’t know where they are going with that, but it’s obvious Ciro has a thing for her.  She is beautiful.  Sometimes I become speechless. Like, “My God.”  They are all beautiful.  On the first day I was working with the character of Randi, played by Denise Vasi.  She has those beautiful eyes and that complexion.  I asked her, “Are those real?” And she said, “What? The eyes?” Yes, they are so blue, so beautiful.  Also the girl who plays Amanda is so beautiful.  I feel like I’m in the candy store.  I’m very happy.  There is beauty on the outside, but they are very beautiful on the inside.  I have to say, with all honesty, they are really nice people.  I got to know the girl that plays Madison [Stephanie Gatschet].  We have all hung out already.  And with J.R., who plays Brock, we’ve gone to dinner a couple of times already, and it’s like wow, I’ve never done this before on other soaps.  They are very nice nice people.”

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.

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…)
