Fans of All My Children who have been wondering what took Debbi Morgan (Angie Hubbard) off the soap for “personal reasons” and have voiced their concern since the actress made an unexpected exit from the show last month, now have some answers.

Recently, during Morgan’s visit on The Tom Joyner Morning Show, she admitted it was because she was diagnosed with Lyme disease.  According to Soap Central.com,  Morgan stated, “I had to take a leave of absence because I was diagnosed with Lyme disease. It’s nothing fatal. Lyme disease is an infection caused by the Borrelia bacteria from a tick. It’s a chronic condition and I’ve had it in my system for over 15 years. I had two pit bulls when I lived up in the hills of L.A. and could’ve gotten [bit] from [a tick on] them.”

Morgan assured fans that she was on the mend, and revealed that her All My Children return is imminent. Morgan is said to be reporting back to the AMC Studios in Los Angeles around the second week in February.

Good news, now maybe finally Angie can get her sight back?

Lyme Disease truly sucks. I have had chronic Lyme for 10 years now..they need to do more research and educate the primary doctors because they’re misdiagnosing entirely too many people and its truly a shame. I have to drive 2 hours to my “Lyme Literate” doctor because most physicians treat Chronic Lyme as if you just got bit but faarrrr from the reality. You cannoot treat Chronic Lyme with one dose of Doxycycline. Lyme is an epidemic. Spread the word.

Hi, I suffer & battle Lyme & it`s co-infections daily. So I feel so for you to try to be on screen that you are fine. Pretending takes so much en-gerny. No 1 knows that part. I do why better by myself do not have pretend. You could make good voice for us. Lyme is fastest growing epidemic in WORLD. People are in dark due to cover-ups. Jesse Ventura on his program finally let all out bag. Pres. Bush had but lied about can look up on net. Why people did not see him his final year. He got treatment… Read more »

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.
