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 renew my interest in them but if not i still hope they both succeed.

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, she could be chasing Jack out on the West Coast or in Europe, who knows.
I wonder if other fans are getting as weary as I am of hearing these “who can’t come back right now” stories. I’m a LONG time fan of the show (longer than I should admit)
but hey, there are Casting Agents and actors dying for work. I am sure there are a thousand pretty Brunette actresses who could play Kendall.

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.

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
