The What If’s webisodes are almost here!  That’s right soapers.  Now finally, you can see characters from one your favorite ABC Daytime dramas interacting with a character from another.  It’s a one of a kind soap opera style mash-up!

The new series of What If webisodes will debut on abc.com and soapnet.com on Monday, July 12th.  The innovative series will answer the question, “What would happen if two characters from different soaps ran into each other, what would they say?” In a 10-part series that will also air in cut-down-versions on ABC Daytime and SOAPnet, viewers will see well-known characters from All My Children, One Life to Live and General Hospital interact with one another, and will be privy to their conversations. The webisodes will be derivative of the characters and their unique past, but are not related to current storyline. One Life to Live’s executive producer, Frank Valentini, is director for the webisode series.

The schedule is as follows:

Week 1 (July 12th):

  • “All My Children’s”  Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and “General Hospital’s” Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard): When Sonny’s plan to use Erica as an alibi goes awry, his claustrophobia gets the best of both of them.
  • “All My Children’s”  Ryan Lavery (Cameron Mathison) and “General Hospital’s”  Carly Jacks (Laura Wright): Carly gives Ryan a refresher course on how to channel his inner bad boy.
  • “One Life To Live’s “ Todd Manning (Trevor St. John) and “General Hospital’s” Damian Spinelli (Bradford Anderson): Spinelli’s fear of flying frustrates Todd to no end and unexpectedly changes their flight plan.

Week 2 (July 19th):

  • “All My Children’s” Greenlee Smythe (Rebecca Budig) and “General Hospital’s” Jason Morgan (Steve Burton):  A drunk Greenlee pours her heart out (and more) to a very sober Jason Morgan.

Week 3 (July 26th):

  • “All My Children’s” Angie and Jesse Hubbard (Debbi Morgan and Darnell Williams) and “One Life To Live’s” Starr Manning (Kristen Alderson): When Angie and Jesse argue about a dry spell in the romance department, Starr reminds them what matters most in life.

Week 4(Aug. 2nd):

  • “One Life To Lives’” Tess (Bree Williamson) and “General Hospital’s” Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna): When Dante and Tess realize they’ve met before, she tries to seduce him for old time’s sake.

Week 5 (Aug 9th):

  • “General Hospital’s” Luke Spencer (Anthony Geary) and “One Life to Live’s” Viki Banks (Erika Slezak):  Bonded by their respective heart problems, Viki and Luke commiserate over lost love.

Week 6 (Aug 16th):

  • “General Hospital’s” Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms) and “One Life to Live’s” Rex Balsom (John- Paul Lavoisier): Maxie and Rex debate the pros and cons of young love, while suddenly faced with their own mortality.

Week 7 (Aug 23rd):

  • “One Life To Live’s” Blair Cramer (Kassie DePaiva) and “All My Children’s” Tad Martin (Michael E. Knight): After comparing notes on their messy love lives, Tad and Blair realize they dance to the same tune.

I am wildly excited for Michael Easton and Kelly Monaco working together on the What If. This has been my dream since Port Charles was cancelled. But, good grief, we have to wait until August 30th! Well, the wait will be worth every second that ticks off on the clock! I know this wlll only whet my appetite for more of them acting together again. They are my very favorite acting pair ever! I loved Caleb and Olivia so much! I think they work together better than anyone I have ever seen on daytime! This is a blessing for us… Read more »

Mark Consuelos on the All My Children Primetime Reboot: “I Know They’re Going to Bring Back Some Fan Favorites”

On Friday, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) was a guest on the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, where he shared his excitement and some insight into the upcoming All My Children primetime reboot, Pine Valley, in development at ABC..

As previously reported, Mark and his wife Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) are two of the executive producers on the project.

Consuelos shared on the reboot:All My Children was such a big part of my life and my wife’s life. And you know, I met my wife there obviously, had kids, became a young man on that show, and we got the opportunity to reboot the primetime version and the idea was brought to us, and we’re so excited.  Of all the things that we’ve ever announced that we’re going to do, this is one of the biggest responses we’ve got from our fans. They’re so excited.  It’s a big piece of TV that’s been missing for such a long time, and we’re going to bring it back.”

When avid soap fan and The Talk co-host, Sheryl Underwood, posed a major question to Consuelos that has been on longtime All My Children fans minds, she got a solid response from him.

Sheryl was trying to get some tea on who might appear in the reboot, when she asked, “Is it going to be the Cortlandts and the Warners? Is it going to be everybody?” Consuelos then responded with: “I know they’re going to bring back some fan favorites, and it will take place in Pine Valley, and I’m really, really excited.”

You can watch a portion of Mark’s virtual visit on The Talk below.

Then let us know, which AMC characters do you want to see back and on the primetime series, Pine Valley?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Will AMC Favorite Josh Duhamel Replace Armie Hammer in JLo’s Film, ‘Shotgun Wedding’?

After a controversial few weeks, which saw Armie Hammer exit his leading role opposite Jennifer Lopez in Liongate’s upcoming romantic-comedy/adventure film Shotgun Wedding, it appears the motion picture has found its replacement if the ink is signed.

Former All My Children and Daytime Emmy winner Josh Duhamel (Ex-Leo) has been picked as Hammer’s replacement.

The film tells the story of a couple that gathers their families for a destination wedding even as they get cold feet. If that wasn’t enough, the entire party then gets taken hostage.

Lopez and Hammer were headed for the film shoot in the Dominican Republic when salacious DM’s rumored to be attributed to  Hammer came to light on social media and derailed the films for now.  However, if Duhamel signs on to the film, they could can retain its start date in February

Hammer had responded to the allegations against him and the DM’s by sharing: “I’m not responding to these bullshit claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic,”

A Lionsgate spokesperson  also responded to Hammer and his exit sharing: “Given the imminent start date of Shotgun Wedding, Armie has requested to step away from the film, and we support him in his decision.”

The Hollywood Reporter first broke the casting news update.

So what do you think of Duhamel as Hammer’s replacement to play opposite JLO? Comment below.
