All My Children’s Ricky Paull Goldin (Jake Martin) was present at the final tape day of the series network television run this past Tuesday. And as Goldin reveals exclusively to the New York Post, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.

An emotional Goldin said of the devastating experience of watching the end of Pine Valley as we know it, “I can’t even begin to tell you how many tears there were — more than your average soap. Everyone was crying. At one point, I was taking people on a little tour of the set on the final day — I wasn’t allowed to do that, but I forgot — so I snuck ’em through the sets and I started to get very emotional.  I saw some of our sets coming down and ‘my’ loft, Jake’s loft, was gone and the Martin living room [set] was scaled down and Tad’s living room was stripped down and some of the other sets had tape across them.  It was like a crime scene! I turned around and saw the sets as they were and got choked up and emotional, really for the first time, since it hit me that this was really happening.”

“When we did our last scene for the show forever, after they said ‘Cut!’ on that scene we all got together for a photograph of the entire cast and crew,” says Goldin. “We all got together in Erica Kane’s penthouse and took the cast photo — including all the multiple kids in the show — and I went to the top of that sweeping staircase and looked out at everybody. It was very surreal, very Fellini. Everything just went in slow motion. It just broke my heart.”

However on the flip side, Goldin revealed that he has a new web-series for Disney called CeReality set to launch next month, which is a soap-spoof/reality series! Ricky describes the show as “a-high-concept, over-the-top comedy.”

“Last year I would’ve said, ‘An Internet comedy? I’m not interested.’ But what’s happening is, I’ve got a newborn son, Kai, who’s 10 months old and by the time he’s 5 or 10, it’s all going to be blended. You’re going to walk up to a flat-screen TV, touch a button and watch what you want. It’s happening already.”

What do you think of Ricky’s account of the final tape day of AMC? Heartbreaking, yes?  And, are you intrigued by his new web soap spoof? Let us know your thoughts.

I am absolutely heartbroken. This is losing a whole family of dearly beloved. I am crying and cannot imagine life without AMC & OLTL. I will search out all shows with my beloved and follow them forever. They have brought joy to my life for decades. Thank you Ricky and please tell my love and thank yous to your cast members. I will never forget you.

It was the scene of a crime. Of ABC killing our soap. I am glad that you will be on internet, and I hope cable. Once our soaps are gone on ABC so are the fans. Love you Jake, stay with Amanda.

It’s too bad he’s going to work for “Disney the evil soap-killing company.”

I cry just thinking about it. 41 years with my soap opera family is a hard breakup. It’s like going to a funeral I thought about all of them on Tuesday and l although I am not an actor I could see the tears of everyone and the job losses for those who really need to work. I am so heart broken that All My Children is gone. Will it really come back and how will it succeed?. These last few months the show has been outstanding and I am not looking forward to September 23rd when the lights go… Read more »

Even as they were “wrapping” things up, millions of fans across the nation were feeling the heartbreak in their own homes. With such emotional scenes that were aired that same day, I don’t think there was a dry eye in ANY of our homes. AMC’s actors, writers, producers, directors, & crew have given us 4+ decades of OUTSTANDING entertainment…and, I’m so PROUD to call them “FAMILY”!! I will miss you all, but I plan on returning to Pine Valley in a few months…I hope to see each and every one of you there!! For now…See Ya Later!! So much love… Read more »

I am just heartbroken hearing of Ricky Paul Goldin’s account of the final day at ABC. My thoughts were with the cast all day. I can just imagine how heartwrenching it must have been, especially for dear Susan Lucci. I feel shocked and surprised that Ricky Paul Goldin would accept an offer with the devil who killed off AMC! Why wouldn’t he accept an offer with Prospect Park and continue on AMC in January? Since this new show he’s going to be on is on the internet, this makes absolutely NO SENSE to me. He could at least start there… Read more »

RPG announced in May that heis “retiring” from daytime soaps after spending 20+ years in the genre. He wants to try new and different acting and directing opportunites. Which is exactly what he is doing with this on-linecomedy venture and I wish him ALL the best!

You have to know the fans are crying too…we hate to see such talented people be at the end of an era. You all have so much to be proud of and the hard work you have given your fans, as well as ABC. The thought of such sadness makes all our hearts sad with you. However, come September 23, when that last show you taped airs…the tears from the fans will surpass the floods from Irene. I will drink a toast to all of you on that day and pray for better things to come to each and every… Read more »

How very very sad. I can well imagine the emotions that day. All these years and it stops just like that. Just because ABC says. Not what the fans wanted, but ABC? They wanted it. So important to put yet another stupid reality show on. ABC didn’t even have the decency to wait until a day or two later to begin taking down the sets. How uncaring! Well the fans of all these soaps are also uncaring (for ABC) and we will be the first ones to shout for joy when The Chew flops on its a**! Their fans will… Read more »

i was with him until he said he signed on with DISNEY to do a web series…like Ron Carlivati anyone connected with AMC or OLTL that continues on with ABC is a traitor in my eyes! they cancel two of the most beloved shows in soap history to put on garbage like The Chew with a big queen in orange crocs? Disgusting! OK Ricky you enjoy more time with the evil mouse but I want nothing to do with them or you anymore!

My heart is breaking and I can’t stand the thought that All my Children will be gone, This is just wrong to treat fans this way but I feel mostly for the wonderful actors who gave their hearts and souls with their dedication. I hope all return in January to Prospect Park. We love you!

I remember Michael Park talking about ATWT last day on the Emmys. He said much the same and hoped “no one else ever had to go through it”…
Sad, sad. I think the online soaps will look very different from our soaps. Not that that’s a bad thing, just different. *sigh*

While I do love RPG and he grew up next door to my best friend, I can NOT watch his new show, as I am boycotting ABC/ Disney, and anything related to them. I am outraged at the gall of SERIAL KILLER BRIAN FRONZ to put more food shows (that belong on the Food Network) in place of our beloved soaps we sat down and watched with our grandparents. Just bc the Tivo’s, DVR’s and Hulu/ABC.go don’t register exactly how many watch, or maybe an office that many people watch, they think nobody watches anymore. BS!!! They did this for… Read more »

TONIGHT: All My Children’s Debbi Morgan and Darnell Williams Together Again on All-New Episode of ‘Our Kind of People’

The Fox drama, Our Kind of People (9 pm ET/8pm CT), will feature a reunion, of sorts, on tonight’s January 18th episode when Debbi Morgan (Ex-Angie, All My Children) once again shares screen-time with her former on-screen soap opera love, Darnell Williams (Ex-Jesse, All My Children).

While mum’s the word as to Williams role, we know that Debbi plays Angela’s Aunt Piggy on the series, and in last week’s installment, Piggy went to the police station to turn herself in for the murder of her ex-boyfriend years ago.  However, Darnell’s character could hold the key as to what really went down in the murder.

Debbi spoke to TV Line about acting again with Darnell: “We were shooting the scene when Darnell’s character walks through the door for the first time.  And it was the first time we see this character on the show, and I looked at him and shouted, ‘Jesse!’ The director had to yell cut and everyone fell out laughing. It was hilarious. I knew that wasn’t his name on Our Kind of People but I couldn’t help myself. We worked together for so many years as Angie and Jesse and that’s the first thing that came to my mind.”

For those who have not checked out Our Kind of People, it takes place in the aspirational world of Oak Bluffs on Martha’s Vineyard, a historical stronghold where the rich and powerful Black elite have come to play for over 50 years.

In story, strong-willed single mom Angela Vaughn (Ex-AMC star, Yaya Decosta) sets out to reclaim her family’s name and make an impact with her revolutionary hair care line that highlights the innate, natural beauty of Black women, but she soon discovers a dark secret about her own mother’s past that will turn her world upside-down and shake up this community forever. The show is a soapy, thrilling exploration of race and class in America and an unapologetic celebration of Black resilience and achievement.

The series is from writer and executive producer Karin Gist (Star, Grey’s Anatomy) and executive producer Lee Daniels (Empire, The United States Vs. Billie Holiday).

So, will you be watching Debbi and Darnell together on tonight’s Our Kind of People? Comment below.

Three-Time Daytime Emmy Winner, Cady McClain, Reveals She’s ‘Back On Set’ But On Which Show?

After her Instagram post earlier this week, fans of Cady McClain have been attempting to dissect her cryptic tease of a message. McClain, a three-time Daytime Emmy winner, shared the good news with fans that she is ‘back to work’, except she didn’t share which show or project she is working on … just yet!

In her post, McClain teased: “Back on set! Fun to be working again on such a terrific show! Can’t wait to be able to share the news with you all soon! Meantime, hoping you are all taking good care of yourselves. Sending hugs!! ”

Now, it could be Cady is working on a primetime show, not a daytime show, but we shall see.

She has previously appeared on The Young and the Restless and Days of our Lives of the four remaining daytime soaps.  On Y&R she played Kelly Andrews, and on DAYS, Jennifer Horton Deveraux.  And, as viewers of the NBC soap saw this week, Jennifer (in a short appearance by Melissa Reeves) returned to Salem with Jack (Matthew Ashford), only to tie-up loose ends over the holidays and exit the show.

Since DAYS still tapes months ahead, could McClain be returning there, or might she pop up on GH and B&B? The character of Kelly was killed-off of Y&R back in 2015.

Previously, Cady became soap-famous for her roles as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children and Rosanna Cabot on As the World Turns.

Share your thoughts on which show you hope Cady is working on, whether, primetime, daytime, or a streaming series, in the comment section below.
