In an interview out today with the Chicago Tribune, All My Children, creator Agnes Nixon discusses her life in soaps, her two guest appearances in Pine Valley starting today reprising the role of Agnes Eckhardt, and the series upcoming move to the web via Prospect Park!  Nixon confirms she will remain a consultant with the series when it move online, and she had some very interesting things to say about how the show will tie up its story!  Here are a few excerpts below:

Nixon on staying with the show when it moves to the Internet: “Yes, I’ll be the creative consultant. Sometimes there are writers who don’t want my help, but for the most part I have the big ideas. We’re going to have a hiatus, you know, for three months. And the head of Prospect Park (the production company taking over the shows) said, “We’ve got to have a big cliffhanger for that three months.” And so I came up with one which I can’t tell you. But they loved it.”

Nixon on AMC being replaced by a talk show called “The Chew”: (Nixon starts laughing before the question has been fully asked and keeps chuckling as she answers.) “I know.  It seems an odd choice. I think the name is — what are they chewing?”

Agnes is one classy and talented lady. AMC has been 1,000% better with her and Loraine doing the writing rather than the old GL team. Love her comment about “The Chew”- too funny.

What to you want to bet that Ricky isn’t really dead and he comes back at the end and Jack and Erica are finally getting married and everyone in town is there. Maybe he will set a bomb off and we won’t know who lives or who dies until January.

Since I have not watched AMC since the 80’s I hope it works out for all of you AMC fans but I am sorry this Dr. Hayward resurecting everyone from the dead well all I can say is REALLY!

Agnes I watched from day 1 when AMC came on tv. Of course they didn’t have vcrs, tito, dvrs in those days so I could only watch when I was on vacation or on a sick day. I love AMC and all the cast members. I just hope that most of the cast will go to Prospect Parks show. If not AMC will be in my heart forever and thats for creating such a wonderful show. AMC FOREVER!!!

I will not be watching anything on ABC after “All My Children” ends. I am sick of moronic reality shows, etc. written to meet the dumbing down of society. Furthermore, I am considering cutting off cable TV and just watching DVDs.

This show has so much gas left in the Tank. Agnes really needs to pull some skeletons out of the closet …specifically from the past. Why not bring Margo back from the Caribbean (she married a Banana Baron) with Claudette’ s twin (Paulette) ? Margo could fill the Phoebe void and Paulette could be Erica’s new rival. Cast Terri Ivens as Paulette daughter for multi generational cat fights.

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.
