ABC Daytime Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS Finale! – Photo Gallery



The curtain came down on a fantastic 7-year run for ABC Daytime Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS event last night in New York when the stars of All My Children, General Hospital and One Life to Live headed to the stage to sing, dance, and perform their hearts out to a packed crowd.

We hear that over $301,000 was raised for this year’s event and that during the entire run of this special one night showcase, the event has now raised over $1.8 million towards the fight against HIV and AIDS.

Kudos to All My Children publicist, Michael Cohen for creating the ABC Daytime salute, and this year there were some fresh faces plus some of the regular ABC Daytime superstars who served up an entertaining evening.  Some of the highlights included: GH’s Tony Geary performing, I Am What I Am from La Cage Aux Folles, Jonathan Jackson’s, Endless Night, OLTL’s Kristen Alderson performing, Trouble, and her on-screen mom, Kassie DePaiva singing, I’ll Never Fall in Love Again.  Llanview’s resident heartthrobs, David Gregory, Nic Robuck, Lenny Platt, Tom Degnan, Josh Kelly, and Mark Lawson were involved in some solo numbers, and then some of the guys took to a skit titled, “Dude, Where Is My Shirt?”  Soap fan Jan Morrison won the opportunity to perform in it by being the highest bidder on the online auction for the event.  Susan Lucci made a very special surprise appearance near the end of the show.  It is  bittersweet to have to see this powerful and creative event have to come to a conclusion, but before we do, take a look at our special photo gallery below from the red carpet arrivals to the performances that rocked the house!

I would have given everything to see Tony Geary sing “I Am What I Am” in drag no less!…

Can some of these people (Tom Degnan, Nic Robuck, and Josh Kelly) ACTUALLY carry a tune, or were they just good sports and winged it out for a special cause?

OK, so I see JK’s picture above the article! So, is this guy really a good singer if anyone was there that night at BC?

Kelly Ripa To Guest Star On CW’s Riverdale

Here’s a fun bit of casting news!  Live with Kelly and Ryan and former All My Children star, Kelly Ripa  (Ex-Hayley) is joining her real-life husband, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) on the hit CW soapy drama Riverdale.

Consuelos already plays the the role of Hiram Lodge, and now Ripa will plays his mistress, Mrs. Mulwray.

Kelly shared the inspired-casting choice on Instagram relating: “It’s a family affair …23 years of auditioning for a role i was born to play. Coming soon to the CW;s Riverdale.”’

The CW released a statement on the casting of Ripa, adding: “Kelly Ripa will guest star on Riverdale as Mrs. Mulwray. Confident and tough, she is Hiram Lodge’s alleged mistress. She’s a beautiful, icy, femme fatale who gets caught up in a conspiracy that’s much bigger than she initially realized.”

Film buffs take note!  Ripa’s character name is borrowed from Faye Dunaway’s Oscar-nominated role in Chinatown (1974), Evelyn Mulwray.   Those who saw Chinatown know that Evelyn was a femme fatale as well caught up in a conspiracy!

And there is more “All in the Consuleos Family” casting.  The couple’s son Michael is portraying the teen-aged version of Hiram on tonight’s all-new episode.

Riverdale airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT
