Are cutie patoodie duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos, formerly of All My Children on a roll or what?   The husband and wife creative partners have sold another show to ABC via their Mijolo Productions company!  And this one is called … Poor Pam!

Exclusively revealed today via Deadline.com , “Ripa and Consuelos have teamed with writing duo Andrew Leeds and David Lampson, creators of last season’s pilot Brenda Forever, for a half-hour comedy project with a female protagonist, Poor Pam.  

The shows centers on Poor Pam, that friend everyone feels bad for.  Single, unemployed, almost broke, living in the shadow of her famous sister — everyone has it better than Pam. But that doesn’t get her down. Poor Pam always looks on the bright side of life, and she’s always ready to go another round, no matter how many times she gets dropped on her ass.

Leeds and Lampson will write the script and executive produce with Ripa and Consuelos. The project was developed internally at Ripa and Consuelos’ Milojo Prods with Albert Bianchini, who oversees the company’s projects. This marks Milojo’s second sale to ABC in the past month. The company, also as previously reported, has a multi-cam comedy  written by former General Hospital: Nightshift head writer Sri Rao.”

So, who should play the title role in Poor Pam? What do you think about hot television executive producers, Ripa an Consuelos?

What is wrong with ABC? She stinks on that dreadful talk show and was even more horrible (if that’s possible) on Hope & Faith. She even said she has no talent of any kind. And her idiot husband, what can you say here that won’t be deleted? IMO they were never cute, nauseating is more like it. There are so many more talented people to choose from, like everyone else. More money for the chronically over paid and terminally un-talented. What does she get for that talk show? $40 mil? Does she need the money to do ads for Electrolux… Read more »

Yes..Hayley was pivotal on AMC…that said…I liked her on Regis & Kelly…I can’t stand Kelly & Michael or whatever it’s called…I did like her sitcom Faith & Hope or Hope & Faith..whatever it was…I think she’s just a likable enough person who’s made it during the time period she wanted to make it..that was the plan…and she wanted to get away from being in front of the camera at some point…which I thought was coming about now…so …I think Mark Consuelos is very smart when it comes to business…and the two of the together were funny when hosting Regis &… Read more »

WHAT is with all the Kelly Ripa hating posts on here?????? She was one of the most popular and beloved heroines on AMC for 12 years. She has since gone on to great things and has always honoured her soap background. I hope all her new ventures succeed. I just can’t believe how needlessly mean spirited people can be!

wow I have to agree with Johnny. I don’t get all the Kelly hate. she was a very beloved heroine as Johnny mentioned, there was always a Poor Hayley moment back in the 90’s and she was paired up in some great pairing back then too. In any case as for not well known characters? SHe was Adam Chandler’s daughter for goodness sakes! It has been fun watching her and Mark transition from Soaps into other things. that’s not always easy and I commend them for their continued success. can’t wait to see what they will accomplish in the future

agree. I just don’t like the Kelly & Michael show. But Hayley was pivotal on AMC…and I think she and Mark Consuelos are an example of a celeb marriage that seems to be working…and I think he’s very smart…he’s got a great business mind…she said she wanted to get away from being in front of the camera when her children hit their teens and they’re there except for the youngest…so………who knows…

What’s with all the Kelly HATE?

I have quit watching her show because I don’t like her with Strahan, but I don’t understand why everyone hates her so much.

I won’t be watching these comedies because I don’t like any comedies anymore…EXCEPT Modern Family. To me, the rest of them are too stupid to waste my time with.

But I say, “Congratulations” to Kelly & Mark for their apparent success with their production company.

They should cast a real life sister of a famous actress who can act.

Sorry to say this but ever since Regis & Kelly stopped being Regis & Kelly and the show became Kelly & Michael her sweet demeanor ended and out popped this “My Show, My Way.” Always playing with her hair and whats this coming out every day dancing. LOL Give it a rest, you can’t dance!

Hi Deb. The fact is…it is her show. She was second banana for over a decade to a man who had long ceased to be relevant or entertaining anymore. I think she earned it. She is funny, self deprecating, enthusiastic, and charming. I just don’t get the hate. Lol.

She was better paired with Regis…I liked the way they worked together. I think she and Mark were very funny when they hosted together. But she and Michael—not so much. I don’t think it’s right to say Regis stopped being relevant or entertaining…he and Kelly together were great fun and it just worked. What is there to be relevant about in a morning show..with light host chat and entertaining guests…I mean what is relevant about that? It’s light entertainment. Not meant to be Meet the Press.

YOU AND ME BOTH, KATE!!! YOU AND ME BOTH!!!! I will NEVER forgive ABC or Disney…and btw I followed Jacob Young to B&B and now Thorsten Kaye is taking on a major role on B&B…so…that’s great…but I am SO sorry he is not returning to AMC via TOLN. I DO hope it returns..I thought the first season was wonderful…loved it…I thought it worked really well!

Kelly and Mark must be doing something right. They are on the air, unlike AMC and OLTL. So get over it ladies. You all wish you had 10% of the talent these 2 have.

Kelly Ripa’s First Book On the Way in 2022

Former All My Children star, now co-host of Live with Kelly and Ryan and a successful executive producer in her own right, Kelly Ripa, will add writer to her list of credits.

New this week is that Ripa is sharing a look at her real-life in a book, that will be released next spring in April of 2022.

According to the intel, the book entitled Live Wire will feature sharp, funny, and honest collection of real-life stories from Ripa, showing the many dimensions and crackling wit of the beloved daytime talk show host.

As soap fans know, Ripa has been married to Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) and the two share three children together.

The loglines for the release share: “In Live Wire, Kelly shows what really makes her tick. As a professional, as a wife, as a daughter and as a mother, she brings a hard-earned wisdom and an eye for the absurdity of life to every minute of every day. It is her relatability in all of these roles that has earned her fans worldwide and millions of followers on social media. Whether recounting how she and Mark really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment) Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.
Surprising, at times savage, a little shameless and always with humor… Live Wire shows Kelly as she really is offscreen—a very wise woman who has something to say.”

So intrigued to read Kelly’s book when it is released next year? Comment below.

Imagine being in the hot seat and having some of your soap opera favorites trying to stump you with trivia, while trying to best your competition.  Well, that’s what four contestants faced as they battled it out in the ultimate soap trivia game, Soap Opera Know-It-All.

Later in the episode, there is a very special appearance by Eileen Davidson (Y&R, Ex-Days, Santa Barbara and B&B).  It is Eileen who reveals and asks the final question of the game to determine the eventual winner.

For this edition, host Michael Fairman welcomed longtime soap fans: Michael Cochran, Sean McKinley, and Robert Davis along with returning champion, David Bursky for this soap deep-dive competition.
