Alicia Minshew Chats On An AMC Finale Return That Did Not Happen! And, Playing Angelica on Tainted Dreams!

Fan favorite Alicia Minshew dished with Tainted Dreams exclusive blogger and noted soap opera journalist, Carolyn Hinsey, shortly after wrapping her scenes in Sonia Blangiardo’s upcoming series Tainted Dreams!

Minshew who let fans in on the fact that ‘Dreams’ is, “sexy and funny and sad and deals with social situations like bullying and autism”,  also shared that she was asked to come back to film scenes for the All My Children season finale.  However, things did not work out sharing she was approached by AMC EP Ginger Smith to, “Tape a few episodes at the end, a fun little thing that would be part of the season finale. I said, ‘Sure, I’ll do it.’  But that taped a long time ago, so I guess I’m not a part of the finale (laughs). I get it, things happen.'”

As far as the character of Angelica, the Senior Producer in Tainted Dreams, and how the rest of the fictitious on-screen production team would kind of stack-up job wise to real life comparisons, Minshew noted, “Angelica is the hands-on producer of Tainted Dreams. To compare it to (the old) All My Children, I’m the Ginger Smith, Grant Aleksander is Julie Carruthers, and Bobbie Eakes is Brian Frons (and Nathan Purdee is Anne Sweeney). I can’t say that I modeled Angelica after any one person. I took bits and pieces of everybody like Sonia and Ginger, people that are caretakers – myself included.”

So would you have liked to see Kendall return for more episodes of All My Children in season one?  Are you looking forward to seeing Tainted Dreams?  Has Alicia’s comments piqued your interest even more to see what is in store when Tainted Dreams is finally released?  Share your thoughts!

Stupid of AMC not to use her when they could use her!

There is no reason for Kendall to be in the new AMC, she is not available and could not be full time or even part time..
There is no sense to a couple scenes appearance..
lol it would be for ‘lokk-see” , only … So why not look at her once again, and wish her luck with her project. 🙂

Kendall has been an integral part of Pine Valley and AMC for many, many years. She’s also a Kane, and she shot a scene that started to explain where she has been recently but left anything else open ended, so there are many reasons for her to be there–just as much as there is for Tad who made a brief appearance in the finale but other than a few mentions, hasn’t been on the whole season. As for her availability, she wasn’t available when the show started to film, but she has been since, so there’s a very good possibility… Read more »

Absolutely I would have liked to have seen Alicia return as Kendall for more of AMC’s first season, but I’m hopeful we’ll get to see a lot more of her in season 2. I’m happy for her that she got to have so much fun playing a role that is different than Kendall and look forward to seeing her in Tainted Dreams as well.

I can’t wait for Tainted Dreams, the show sounds really good. I would like to see Alicia back on AMC for Season 2,. I want to see team Slater reunited. Thanks

I hope to see Alicia on AMC as a regular, PV needs her and so does Zach. I miss her gorgeous face and what she brings to the table as Kendall. I’m glad Alicia enjoyed her time on TD. I look forward to seeing it.

I’m looking forward to Tainted Dreams and happy that she has a starring role on the show, but Alicia will always be Kendall to me and I wish she had taped those additional scenes! Still, I’m hopeful that there’s more to Kendall’s illness and Bianca taking care of her for the new season than we’ve seen so far. I love that Alicia is so loyal to AMC even when her schedule is busy. As long as she’s willing to show up from time to time, I’ll be happy to see Kendall on AMC, and hopefully reunited with Zach!

I am also hopeful that we will see her in Season 2. I would love to see her and Thorsten together again. I have missed my favorite couple. It was great to hear that she had a great time filming Tainted Dreams and I look forward to seeing the show.

Absolutely I would have loved Alicia to be in AMC and still hope she will be in season 2. I also look forward to seeing her in Tainted Dreams. It may be possible for her to do both due to staggered shooting schedules . Hope so! Can’t wait to see her

I love Alicia and loved seeing Kendall, however brief, on the new AMC. I wish both she and Bianca could have been on more. I hope to see Kendall next season and hope she and Zach reunite.

If AMC comes back, and that’s a BIG IF, I’d love to see her as a regular member of the cast and not just a “drop-in”. I’ve really missed her on the show and if she did come back, I’d be sure to watch the next season. As it stands right now, I’m not sure if I’ll bother watching again.

Definitely looking forward to TD but truly hope she returns to AMC. Without a Zach/Kendall reunion AMC will not hold my interest.

If you have been watching, then AMC has been holding your interest 🙂
Time passes things change and one change is Zach/Kendall are no longer a couple..
Enjoy AMC it is awesome, not all who once were are needed..
AMC is rockin the top 10 without them 🙂 ..

I hope Zach finds a sophisticated high-roller woman who will challenge him and give him great stories, the FBI fluffy is beneath him, in many ways=DULL
((zach seems to be her babysitter lol)

And sometimes, things change back and couples reunite. It could happen. I’ve been watching and it’s holding my interest because Zach still loves Kendall and is still wearing his wedding ring. Kendall has always been a great challenge for Zach. She’s high-roller enough for Zach.

I’m thrilled that Alicia has other projects outside of AMC and she deserves to be successful (and she is). I’m very disappointed that AMC did not use the scenes in the Season 1 finale — I was so hoping she would be the surprise appearance that was hinted at. Let’s hope that AMC brings her back for Season 2 to tell the story of Zach and Kendall, and finally reunite this great couple. I miss Zendall very much and, for me, AMC is not the same without Kendall (of course with Zach). There is no doubt in my mind that… Read more »

Never cared for Minshew’s Kendall. Sarah-Michelle Gellar owned that role and still does.

Tony Polar

Well by all means if you can get Sarah-Michelle Gellar to return as Kendall Hart Slater go for it. In the meantime, if Minshew can’t return as Kendall then they certainly should re-cast Kendall. I can understand that they can’t re-cast Tad so easily nor can they ever replace the iconic Susan Lucci as Erica, but I think fans would accept a new Kendall if necessary. At any rate, I would be happy to see AMC return regardless of who does, or does not play Kendall and right now I think all us AMC fans just would like to see… Read more »

I would not accept a recast of Kendall. and Sarah-Michelle Gellar never played Kendall as good as Minshew. And it’s Mnshew who has the great chemistry with Thorsten kaye, not Sarah-Michelle Gellar who I can take or leave.

Well, some people say they won’t accept a recast of Kendall on ALL MY CHILDREN. If the character re-emerges, chances are pretty good that the role will HAVE to be re-cast, since Alicia has gone on to several other projects.
Of course, viewers of ALL MY CHILDREN will be thankful just to see if the show comes back and with Prospect Park’s “sketchy” remarks, who know if it will come back and when. Naturally, I am hoping it does return regardless of who plays Kendall.

I’m looking forward to watching “Tainted Dreams”. It has a wonderful cast of daytime actors and especially Alicia Minshew, who has a starring role. I’m disappointed that Kendall was not part of the final episode of AMC’s Season 1. I do hope that Alicia will be available for Season 2 and brings back Kendall to Pine Valley to reunite her with Thorsten Kaye’s Zach. AMC needs Zach and Kendall….it’s magical super couple.

If Bobbie Eakes is playing a Brian Frons role, does this mean Tainted Dreams will be cancelled and replaced by the talk show reboot of The Revolution…lol

So she shot some scenes that didn’t make it into the season finale, hmm? GOOD!!! That means they might use them next season. If she’s able to return, I hope she & Zach can light up the Zendall magic that captivated SO MANY fans – myself included. If she can’t return full-time, I hope they get some good soapy scenes of Zach holding Kendall as she dies in his arms, saying their good-byes and I love yous as tears stream down their faces (and ours), plenty of flashbacks, plenty of good soapy romance – AMC needs that, in my opinion.… Read more »

I think Alicia is a TREMENDOUS talent and the PTB at AMC over at Prospect Park would be wise to find a way to re-introduce her into the Pine Valley canvas just as things begin to get hot and heavy between Zach and the new female lead (FBI Agent). I think that Kendall is the love of his life and this would make for an interesting dynamic once some of these other stories are meshed out in the upcoming season.

Alicia Minshew is a multi talented actress and I am grateful she made the time to come back for AMC 2.0. It was so nice to see her and I hope we can see more of her for the second season. I look forward to seeing her on Tainted Dreams. Thank you Michael for this 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.
