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 Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.
