Daytime Emmy winner Julia Barr (Brooke English), along with many other beloved performers from the original All My Children have been getting their feet wet over the past few weeks in the iconic soaps new home and studio, through the efforts of Prospect Park to bring the fictional town of Pine Valley back to life!

In a new interview with TV Line, Barr spoke of the new sets, new production schedule, whom she has worked with thus far and that all important question; what happened to Brooke and Adam (David Canary), and the others, after JR fired a shot from a gun on the final ABC episode of AMC?  Here are a few interesting excerpts from Julia!

Julia on how when AMC fans last saw Brooke, life was good as Adam proposed to her, and then a shot rang out:  “That’s right. And it knocked a big old vase off the mantelpiece. (Laughs) I’m kidding. I’m sorry, I’m not at liberty to discuss what happened but it’s actually a great opening script that lets you know a certain amount of things that happened and who they happened to. It’s really good. It’s approximately five years in the future as far as [the show] wanting to age some of the kids. Of course, the adults did not age, and I’m so glad. (Laughs)”

Julia on how the first few days of taping went, and what can she tease about Adam and Brooke:   “Actually, not bad… But I have to tell you, Ginger Smith, who’s our executive producer… has pulled together a fantastic group of people… There’ll be some surprises. I was even surprised yesterday to hear about somebody that I’ll be working with on Thursday. She’s pulled together this group of not only directors we all know but camera people, production people… It’s really great. To step into something that is familiar and yet completely unfamiliar in a way, it’s great to have this going forward as a group… Adam and Brooke are engaged and still very much in love, so we’ll see what happens. And there’s a lot of intrigue about what actually happened at Adam and Brooke’s engagement party five years ago!”

So what do you think about Julia’s comments about what happened since we last saw Brooke and Adam and the characters of AMC?  How do you think the story will pick-up five years later after the JR incident?  Weigh-in!

Oh and this: “Adam and Brooke are engaged and still very much in love”

EEEEEEEEEEEEEE!! Julia’s greatest quote since “Well, he always did love me best, anyways … ” On Brooke taking Adam away from Annie in 2010.

I hope they reveal soon when this show is coming back! I’m really glad that Julia Barr was asked to return after how unfairly ABC dismissed her. As Phoebe’s niece and Erica’s chief rival, I always thought Brooke was just as integral to AMC as Tad or Erica.

When we last saw Brooke, Adam had proposed to her and she accepted. Now, it’s five years later and they are STILL engaged? Well, they’ve only (the characters) known each other for thirty years, I guess they didn’t want to rush into anything. Just kidding, I think she is great, one of the truly fine actresses in Daytime Dramas – or whatever they will be called now, since our viewing won’t be strictly daytime. For years (and I mean YEARS) I recorded the shows and would watch them at night, due to work constraints, obviously. I’m glad that it really… Read more »

it’s my understanding… that if you choose to pay… ie: $ 7.99 @ month… for huluplus.com you have all the time to watch…

whereas…. FREE, http://www.hulu.com... you have minimal time… so… that mean’s – for me – i’m going to have to keep up….

i heard that you may have within or up to a week? to watch current episodes..

It is basically up to the channel how long they keep it on Hulu and how many episodes they can keep on the site.

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.
