A true legend and a talented writer/creator. She will be sorely missed. Soap writers of today, take a page from Ms. Nixon. The word visionary totally describes her.

Truly the end of an era. Ms Nixon changed the face of the American soap opera. And as long as social media stays with us, we can always look at a clip of her work and be reminded of the incredible legacy she left behind. Rest in peace Ms Nixon. Thank you for sharing your one life with us.

AMC was the first soap I watched as an adult, after my son was born, and I was home during the day.
Agnes conceived and wrote the most compelling stories which few others have ever matched.
So sorry she’s passed.
So sorry her wonderful shows were shamefully dumped by ABC!

Agnes Nixon and Irna Phillips were 2 of a kind — daytime visionaries! We will miss Agnes. Sad that she saw ABC cancel AMC and OLTL.

Thank you , Agnes Nixon for the many, many Yeats of entertainment you gave us. All My Children was the best soap EVER! I wish so much it would return to weekday afternoons.

I’ll never forgive ABC for cancelling All My Children & One Life To Live simultaneously. Their ratings and replacements have never recovered those loyal audiences. Then CBS kills Guiding Light and As The World Turns. Just think of the losses of daytime viewers.

TOTALLY AGREE.. THE VIEWERS HAVE BEEN THE BIG LOSERS..THE NETWORKS ARE ONLY INTERESTED IN THE $.

Forever grateful how she touched my beloved CBS (P&G) shows: #AsTheWorldTurns, #GuidingLight and #SearchForTomorrow … and respectful of her creation and nurturing of her ABC serials #AllMyChildren, #Loving and #OneLifeToLive. Truly, the approaching end-of-an-era (…with only Lee Phillip Bell to connect us to that glorious past!) Safe passage, Aggie. #Godspeed

Life ending no matter what has a touch of sadness and bittersweetness. She may not have solved poverty,hunger or AIDs but her talent brought us smiles, tears, some social awareness and some great escapism. Some may say she brought us, created, the one and only Erica Kane – enough said. She will be missed but has led a full life and her memoirs are now finished too. She is one of the few writers/creators that was so well known publicly. So full of life, class and style – putting her family first – rumour has it a great mentor to… Read more »

I have watched all of the ABC soaps since I was a child. I am now 52 and all that I have left to watch every day is General Hospital. I gasped when I saw their tribute of the October 4th, 2016 episode dedicated to her, as I had not heard that she had passed. That amazing woman created years of laughter, joy, tears. and love for me and all of her fans worldwide. I knew of Agnes Nixon fondly, and never have heard a negative word mentioned about her. May we all go through this life led by her… Read more »

What a beautiful tribute Windy! My feeling are similar to yours as is my story. I’m 54 years old and like you, grew up watching the ABC soaps. We are left with GENERAL HOSPITAL which always had a big following but never was as great as Ms. Nixons creations.

Wish you happiness Windi!

I was so saddened, to see the very last episode of OLTL, which I had watched/recorded, every single day, since 1992, and, wasn’t quite sure, just how I felt, about Prospect Park. Didn’t really matter, though, as I prefer television viewing to online viewing, so…that, for me, was the end of OLTL; however, I have become very attached to GH, and, enjoy every single episode.
Agnes- you were blessed with such a gift…and, now…you have your wings!

Rest In Peace,

Candi

Who can forget her creations? Rachel, Ada, Sam, and Lahoma on “Another World”… Phoebe Tyler, Nick Davis, Margo Flax, madcap Edna Thornton, and Tyrone the Pimp on “All My Children”… Carla and Sadie Gray, Vinnie, Anna, and Larry Wolek on “One Life to Live”… What I’ll remember most is the humor she injected into the soaps. Who didn’t chuckle at Nick Davis’ natty and outrageous mid-1970s outfits? Margo’s obsession to reclaim her youth and to land Paul Martin? Sadie and Anna’s heart-to-hearts? Phoebe’s insufferable snobbishness? For me, these characters and friendships were secondary to the love stories and plot twists.… Read more »

What strikes me of the millions of American women and to a lesser extent men who were her core audience in the 60’s, 70,s and 80’s have passed. That core audience was entertained and educated in the Empire begun by the great Ms Nixon. I was lucky enough to meet the great Ms. N which in New York in January 12 , 2012. The eve of OLTL last airing. She was with Ron Carlivati. She was weak but not frail. She clung to him like a loving mother, he caring for her like he was the watchman of a priceless… Read more »

Chrishell Stause and Singer G Flip Confirm Relationship

During the premiere of Friday night’s Selling Sunset reunion show on Netflix, there were several major moments, but one of them surprised many.

Former All My Children, Days of our Lives, and ‘Young and the Restless’ star, Chrishell Stause confirmed that she is in a relationship with Australian singer, G Flip.

Stause revealed that she is seeing the non-binary singer after the moderator, Tan France asked Chrishell if she was seeing anyone. The former soap star expressed: “I recently have been spending a lot of time with someone that’s very important to me. Their name is G Flip. They’re non-binary, so they go by they/them,” adding, “They are an extremely talented musician.”

Leave it to her soap background to play a part in the ultimate connection between Chrishell and G Flip. Stause explained: “It started because I was just going to be in their video. And it’s about this chaotic love story. I come from soaps, I love acting. And with the job that we have, I don’t always get to do it. At first of course I was like yes, let’s do that.”

G Flip’s latest single GAY 4 Me is out now and her new single is dropping on May 13th, GET ME OUTTA HERE.

Previously, Chrishell was dating her ‘Selling Sunset’ boss, Jason Oppenheim, who opined about the break-up of their relationship on the special. In a scene shown on the Netflix special, Oppenheim shared, “This is not the time of my life where I want to have a family.”  Months back, reports had surfaced that the couple had differences they could not overcome.  However, now Jason expressed that Stause was “the love of my life” and said he may regret forever the fact that he let her go.

Now back to present time.  According to PEOPLE.com, Stause is enjoying the company of G Flip, and the two were seen out and about at West Hollywood’s nightclub/bar, The Abbey, this past Thursday cozying up to one another.

In addition, it appears that Stause and G Flip are now living together in Chrishell’s Los Angeles home, which reportedly was purchased, in part, by her selling her wedding to her ex husband, This Is Us star, Justin Hartley.

Over the last 24 hours, Stause took to her Instagram story clad in a bikini, and showed us the renovation progress of a large closet at her home.  She closed the IG story withm “I’m gonna come out of it now,” to which several of her former DAYS castmates had fun with the ‘play on words’ response and shared some comments back to her.

So, what do you think of Chrishell entering into a relationship with G Flip? We wish them the best. Share your thoughts below.
