All My Children’s Rebecca Budig (Greenlee) caught up with TV Guide to discuss the intriguing mystery of not only who “killed” David Hayward, but what on earth is the real story on if Vincent Irizarry is once and for all truly finished as the dastardly Dr. David H!  Here are a few juicy excerpts below:

Budig on if she is certain that Greenlee is innocent of the crime: “I don’t absolutely know for sure. I really don’t think she did it. Then again, I could read the next script and it’ll say she’s guilty. Right now she thinks Ryan did it and she’s protecting him because she cares about him and doesn’t want him to go to jail. That’s why she forged the letters.  She thinks that if people believe David committed suicide then everyone will be better off for it. There aren’t a lot of David fans in town, and even the people who did care about him will have some peace. I think that’s her intention anyway. I’m anxious to see how they work it out. I’m glad they’re not forgetting about the relationship Greenlee had with David, that she’s not just pooh-poohing his memories, because I think she did love him. We start shooting the trial pretty soon and I’ve been nervous about that. Are they really going to kill Greenlee now? Are they going to send her away?”

Budig on all the Irizarry drama… if he is gone for good, or not!:  “I don’t know! He was very mum about everything on the set. I didn’t even know he was leaving until I read it in a script and I’m like, “Vincent…?” And he said, “Yeah, babe, I’m gone.” And that’s all he’d say. I was really taken by surprise and I’m sure everyone else at the show was, too. I’m amazed it stayed a secret as long as it did.”

Budig on if she were to lose her gig on AMC, would she try and go to Y&R?:  “I don’t know if they’d have me.  I think I’d try to get on General Hospital before I’d go to Y&R. [Laughs] I might go picket outside the GH studio until they cast me. I want to be one of Sonny’s chicks!”

If Vincent leaves AMC, OLTL should pick him up. He would make a great Eddie Ford. He has the good looks that would make it believable to be the Ford dad. Plus, we have seen him play evil so well, so it would be perfect casting. Can’t you see he and Dorian mixing things up? I think he would a nice distraction for her while David is in jail. You know Dorian being intrigued by this mysterious man who turns out to be a con man, which of course she discovers only after getting close to him. Back to AMC:… Read more »

Gee Rebecca, tell us how YOU REALLY feel about Y&R huh?! If you end up losing your job at AMC and GH, DOOL, or B&B don’t pick you up, you’ll just have shot yourself in the foot. Take note Y&R producers and casting……….don’t hire Rebecca if she’s going to diss my favorite show! Oh, and she was horrible on GL too.

Sorry Becca, but you’ve just PO’ed one Y&R fan who hopes you never find work on that show or any other show again should AMC ever let your skanky ass go!

I don’t think that their just going to kill (David)off like that! I mean seriously then who is going to be the bad guy in Pine Valley? There truely isn’t anybody better at playing the bad guy lke him. But i would like to see who’s got the guts to try and do it and make it look and feel as good as Irzarry did.

Mark Consuelos on the All My Children Primetime Reboot: “I Know They’re Going to Bring Back Some Fan Favorites”

On Friday, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) was a guest on the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, where he shared his excitement and some insight into the upcoming All My Children primetime reboot, Pine Valley, in development at ABC..

As previously reported, Mark and his wife Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) are two of the executive producers on the project.

Consuelos shared on the reboot:All My Children was such a big part of my life and my wife’s life. And you know, I met my wife there obviously, had kids, became a young man on that show, and we got the opportunity to reboot the primetime version and the idea was brought to us, and we’re so excited.  Of all the things that we’ve ever announced that we’re going to do, this is one of the biggest responses we’ve got from our fans. They’re so excited.  It’s a big piece of TV that’s been missing for such a long time, and we’re going to bring it back.”

When avid soap fan and The Talk co-host, Sheryl Underwood, posed a major question to Consuelos that has been on longtime All My Children fans minds, she got a solid response from him.

Sheryl was trying to get some tea on who might appear in the reboot, when she asked, “Is it going to be the Cortlandts and the Warners? Is it going to be everybody?” Consuelos then responded with: “I know they’re going to bring back some fan favorites, and it will take place in Pine Valley, and I’m really, really excited.”

You can watch a portion of Mark’s virtual visit on The Talk below.

Then let us know, which AMC characters do you want to see back and on the primetime series, Pine Valley?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Will AMC Favorite Josh Duhamel Replace Armie Hammer in JLo’s Film, ‘Shotgun Wedding’?

After a controversial few weeks, which saw Armie Hammer exit his leading role opposite Jennifer Lopez in Liongate’s upcoming romantic-comedy/adventure film Shotgun Wedding, it appears the motion picture has found its replacement if the ink is signed.

Former All My Children and Daytime Emmy winner Josh Duhamel (Ex-Leo) has been picked as Hammer’s replacement.

The film tells the story of a couple that gathers their families for a destination wedding even as they get cold feet. If that wasn’t enough, the entire party then gets taken hostage.

Lopez and Hammer were headed for the film shoot in the Dominican Republic when salacious DM’s rumored to be attributed to  Hammer came to light on social media and derailed the films for now.  However, if Duhamel signs on to the film, they could can retain its start date in February

Hammer had responded to the allegations against him and the DM’s by sharing: “I’m not responding to these bullshit claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic,”

A Lionsgate spokesperson  also responded to Hammer and his exit sharing: “Given the imminent start date of Shotgun Wedding, Armie has requested to step away from the film, and we support him in his decision.”

The Hollywood Reporter first broke the casting news update.

So what do you think of Duhamel as Hammer’s replacement to play opposite JLO? Comment below.
