I wish her well on “Tainted Dreams.” She will be missed on AMC, but you never know what the future holds. Maybe one day she’ll be back.

ill always wonder now if ABC hadnt moved AMC from New York to California if PP wouldve been able to convince some of AMCs other former stars to join the reboot like they have with OLTL, that didnt make the move, and has a better selection of its vets. I dont mind cameos, and AMC is getting back some faves of mine for longer stays like Dixie, David, Brooke, Angie and Jessie and hopefully some new favorites will interest me but OLTL feels more like the serial i remember than AMC does. However, im still giving both equal chances to… Read more »

I think it’s great that Alicia has other projects going on. She was very good in the role of Kendall Hart, but I still think (I’ve said this before) that if the writers feel that Kendall is a key character in Pine Valley, they should consider a recast – that is strictly my opinion. If they feel they want to “write around” her until Alicia becomes available, that’s fine too. As for Susan Lucci, who of course plays her mom, Erica Kane, if she can’t come back, write around her or write Erica out of the show for a while,… Read more »

Totally agree! They should recast the role of Kendall Hart….Alicia was a recast. It took me a while to warm up to her, because I was a huge Sarah Michelle Gellar fan, but I eventually caved and began to enjoy Alicia’s portrayal of the character. They could easily find someone to take on this role. Quit treating this actors like they are irreplaceable…..She will be missed, but soap fans have always been resilient, and we will move on and accept a new actress in this role.

Great fun interview. I’m so excited about Tainted Dreams and can’t wait until it airs. I love the theme of “behind the scenes at a soap” and knowing the story is written by Sonia makes it even more exciting because it will be realistic. I can’t wait to see Alicia Minshew in that role and I hear there are other great actors on board too, i.e., Austin Peck and Walt Willey.

I am an AMC fan and will miss Kendall, but right now I’m more excited about Tainted Dreams. Can’t wait.

I’m very happy for Alicia and looking forward to Tainted Dreams. And I most definitely want her back on AMC as Kendall Hart Slater! She is Kendall.

I’m still hopeful we’ll see Alicia on AMC. I get the feeling she still feels attached to the role of Kendall and AMC seems to want her on the show, too. In the meantime, I wish her well on her new projects. It’s great to see her so busy, happy and looking amazing.

Great interview with Alicia and Sonia. I am happy for Alicia, she has so many projects in front of her. Can’t wait to see her in Tainted Dreams. Maybe with Sonia, a producer at AMC and creator of Tainted Dreams, she can work it out so that Alicia can appear again in AMC while doing Tainted Dreams.

I hate to agree, but I do. I wonder if AMC is successful on line, how many of the hold outs would ask to come back? I say they should focus on the cast they have and make AMC a greatshow.

I was wondering if there will be any vampires on the webs Tainted Dreams? Tainted Dreams was the title for Port Charles vampire story that was on years ago and its theme was the song by the same name, so i wonder if there will be a connection or was the vampire stuff finished on GH? Im joking…

I like the idea of going behind the scenes of a soap and the soap-in-a-soap concept. I’m looking forward to watching Tainted Dreams. I think Alicia Minshew will be great as the “Sonia” of the show. It sounds like Sonia knows what she is talking about when it comes to soaps and is proud to be working on them. This sounds like a great series.

Thanks for posting the interview.

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.
