When people were all abuzz about one of the stars of All My Children being pregnant, there was much speculation!  But that ended over Daytime Emmy weekend, when Daytime Emmy winner, Eden Riegel (Bianca) announced via her Twitter page that she is indeed pregnant for the second time!

Riegel revealed,  “I’m thrilled to announce today, on Father’s Day, that I’m going to make @MillerLoLife, the greatest dad I know, a father all over again!”  Of course, Eden is referring to her husband Andrew Miller.

Eden’s long time All My Children co-star and on-screen sister, Alicia Minshew (Kendall) also jumped into the preggars announcement by exclaiming:  “Yaaaaaaayyyy! Congrats my friends! So happy for you both! A new Miller to squeeze!!”

So what do you think of the news of Eden and Andrew about to have their second child?  Share your thoughts and well wishes here!

Congrats to her. I wonder if this was the actress who AMC said was pregnant who was in the middle of a new romance. Maybe that has not aired yet and they were hooking her up with Jane or someone new on the show. I was hoping for more of ER and not less. I am happy for her and her family though.

Before the show started airing again, they said Riegel was only there for a story arc.. which made it sound like she’d do this for a while and leave indefinitely. Given the shooting schedule and the lack of anything to do in LA, don’t see why Riegel can’t continue on AMC for the forseeable future. David Canary(Adam) hasn’t been on in weeks, and he lives in the area.. maybe Riegel can get a come n’ go as she pleases deal too. Speaking of which, Alicia Minshew has an awful lot of free time to tweet.. why doesn’t she fill that free time and fill the role of Kendall Hart!

Agreed about Alicia! Kendall is one of the characters that is really missed. I don’t buy Zach with this Latino girl FBI agent. There is zero chemistry. I want my Zendall back. I hope ER can have a flexible deal with the show too.

I’m with you about Alicia. But she’s still Kendall Hart Slater to me. Divorce or no divorce, she’s the love of Zach’s life and I’m not going to call Kendall by her maiden name, no way and no how.

Alicia Minshew will be on AMC…not sure how long but I believe it’s July 11th. But not sure if that is the air date or film date but either way even if it’s temporary it will be good to see her again 🙂

Happy for her – and as for Bianca Montgomery, her character, well it doesn’t seem like she has much to do on AMC anyway ~ she had that one blow up scene against J.R. Chandler, and really, that was about it. So, if Eden needs some Maternity leave, they can either ‘write around’ her character for a while, or have a substitute Bianca temporarily if there are scenes already written.

I’m very happy for Eden, but she’s not the actress who was the subject of the pregnancy rumors. Eden herself actually tweeted that she hadn’t revealed the news to AMC, so no one could have been speculating about her or “changing course” in story, as another soap reporter had said was happening. The other pregnant actress, who has admitted it, is the one who plays Leah, the world’s most clueless FBI agent. LOL

‘The Masked Singer’ Runner-up, Ex- AMC’s Jesse McCartney, Recalls Working With David Canary

If you caught the finale of The Masked Singer this week, you know that “The Turtle” was revealed to be none other than former All My Children star and recording artist, Jesse McCartney.

While McCartney came in as the runner-up, losing out to Kandi Burress, he spoke to Digital Journal about his latest single, “Friends’ and recalled his time working with the one and only David Canary (Ex-Stuart/Adam) on the now defunct ABC daytime drama series.

As a young JR Chandler from 1998-2001, that put him sharing on-screen time with Canary, who played his father.  Jesse remembers all of the lines of dialogue thrown at him at a young age was not fun.

When speaking of his time with Canary, McCartney shared: “He was one of the sweetest guys on the planet and he was such a kind soul. He played my father, Adam Chandler, and not only was he the star of the show but he played his own twin brother, Stuart. He had double the lines of any character on the show, and in my three years on the show, he never messed up a line even once. There was a time when David helped me when I was having a moment and I struggled with remembering my lines, so as a result, the soap world for me is very sentimental.”

ABC and PEOPLE’s ‘The Story of Soaps’: What Was Your Review Of It?

Tuesday’s night airing of ABC and PEOPLE’s two-hour special The Story of Soaps featured many notable daytime and primetime soap stars, past and present, clips from backstage to classic memorable moments, and some participants who were providing commentary on the erosion of the daytime soaps in our culture.  Still others, maintained and realized that everything today is serialized from the news we watch, to some of Netflix’s most binge-watchable series, and of course, the birth of reality-programming.

Throughout the airing of the special, The Story of Soaps was trending on Twitter and social media either at the #2, #3 or #4 spots for the entire duration of the broadcast presentation, and the cancelled and beloved All My Children was also at one point trending.

However, known soap writers, journalists, ardent fans, and actors of the genre, were all on Twitter last night live-tweeting their thoughts as the special went down, and there was definitely mixed reactions and reviews, when all was said and done.

What the special did not shy away from, but tackled, was Luke’s rape of Laura at the campus disco on General Hospital. and how that moment now, as Genie Francis (Laura), so eloquently put, would be considered as ‘date rape’ in our culture.  The series even included a pivotal moment where Laura addresses Luke (Tony Geary) about the rape years later, after helping Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) through her rape ordeal.

John Stamos (Ex-Blackie Parrish, GH) got a bevy of “Right On’s!” for his comment that the soaps do not get the credit that they deserve and clearly came through as one of the soaps greatest supporters, as did former The Doctors and Knots Landing star, Alec Baldwin.

However, throughout the two-hours, Andy Cohen’s commentary was thread throughout; mostly citing soap’s demise and the creation of reality-programming and his “Real Housewives” franchise, that the special touted as the new soap operas.  It continued on the narrative that people preferred to see real-life drama then made-up drama on a fictional soap.  And while, that has been a trend in American culture for decades, the commentary came off as often out of place in a celebration of the soaps; and bringing in a lot of negativity to the special that soap fans were tired of hearing.

In a lighting rod moment, Cohen stated: “I know Susan Lucci doesn’t agree with me, but I think that the Housewives have replaced soap operas because truth is stranger than fiction. Soaps became kind of unnecessary because you could do it with real people, and they’re writing the drama themselves.”

The special did also address the cancellations of All My Children and One Life to Live, (which many were not sure they were going to do – given this special was airing on ABC), where One Life’s leading lady and six-time Daytime Emmy winner, Erika Slezak (Ex-Viki) said what we all wanted to sa ywhen the ax fell on the towns of Llanview and Pine Valley, “People were horrified”.

Clearly, OJ Simpson and his murder trial and reality-programming were also given a chunk of time to show where the once mighty landscape of daytime soaps which once had 13 shows on the air, dwindled town to 4.  But, it would have been nice to see more time spent on how in this day and age, the people in this current landscape of the genre work so hard to get episodes done at an unbelievable pace, and how in that climate the performers still deliver gut-wrenching performances.

Former Loving, OLTL and Breaking Bad star, Bryan Cranston, did point out how the once powerful soaps, just don’t have the dollars they used to, and need to, to help with production costs and their taping schedule.

Viewers were reminded of soaps’ socially relevant storylines including hankie-inducing moments from: Robin (Kimberly McCullough) and Stone’s (Michael Sutton) HIV/AIDS storyline on General Hospital, to Billy Douglas being a gay teen coming out on One Life to Live, played by a young Ryan Phillippe.

There also did not seem time spent on the contributions of William J. Bell; one of the most prominent writers of the soap genre of all-time.

For many commenting on social media last night, there seemed to be a feeling of some glaring omissions of participants who could speak on this genre, who have been in the trenches as soap producers, soap writers, pundits, actors, and more, who were not included in the special.

So, what was your review of The Story of Soaps? How would you grade it? Do you feel it accurately reflected the history of the genre?  Were you happily surprised,  or when it came to the end where you over it, or somewhere in between? Sound off in the comment section below.  Below are some tweets from notables who have worked as an actor, a writer, and a journalist in the soaps.
