As first reported by On-Air On-Soaps last week in our brand new interview with One Life to Live’s Erika Slezak, the six-time Daytime Emmy winner along with All My Children’s Thorsten Kaye and Vincent Irizarry will be appearing on ABC’s morning talk series, The View this coming Thursday April 25th to promote the premiere episodes of the online revivals of AMC and OLTL on April 29th on Hulu, HuluPlus and iTunes!

According to ABC, the three soap star favorites will join the ladies of The View and special guest co-host singer/songwriter Gretchen Wilson whose latest album is “Right on Time”!  The View airs Weekdays from 11:00 AM – 12:00 Noon, ET/10:00 AM – 11:00 AM, PT on the ABC Television Network.

Now while many may see this as intriguing since ABC canceled AMC and OLTL, it looks as though The View knows that their audience misses their favorite soaps! 

Will you be tuning into see Thorsten, Vincent and Erika on The View this Thursday?  Let us know!

YOU ARE ALL A BUNCH OF HYPOCRITES! ABC being sued by PP but turnsaround and promotes PP reboots on ABCs The View? People claim they boycott ABC but will tune in and watch their talk show? PP sues ABC but its ok for them to allow their stars on one of their talk shows? I also wonder…how many people on here did complain about PP back in Nov. 2011 and said they didnt trust PP and said they want nothing to do with them when they announced they had abandon plans to do the reboots? But now PP got their… Read more »

So true, one way or another we are all hypocrites no matter how we try to spin it. Every network has cancelled soaps yet ABC is made to look like murderers, it’s so ridiculous, people are stupid if they think any network cares about the people, their bottom line is money, how to spend less and make more. That’s it period…

CBS cancelled two soaps…ATWT & GL…and NBC cancelled Passions but no one said they were boycotting those networks!

I find it very interesting that suddenly ABC is publicizing a show they themselves cancelled. I know exactly why, it was mentioned as a factor in the suit with Prospect Park. Part of the deal was they were supposed to help promote the shows, which they had not done at all up to this point! Just like releasing the URL’s for the shows suddenly to PP after news of the lawsuit broke. They are trying to make the suit look as they it has no merit. I read the entire lawsuit and everything in it, from my perspective appears legitimate.… Read more »

Really, there are so many ways to watch The View, I’m not home during the daytime as many people aren’t, I have to work – but I can watch The View show on You Tube and it won’t count (well, I don’t think so) towards ratings…or does it? I surely would like to hear what these three well-known soap veterans have to say about everything, I’m sure it will be on the positive side though some of these actors have been known to be very blunt in expressing their feelings. I don’t like what abc-tv did, but if these shows… Read more »

I have always thought boycott talk of the abc network was silly and hypocritical. How many boycotters pick and choose programs. They say they watch general hospital and the view is ok. Wonder how many watch sports, the academy awards, modern family and countless other shows on abc. Nielsen ratings prove significant numbers even watch the chew as their ratings are pretty good. Networks cancel shows al the time.. All my children ratings were greatly eroded and the show was almost cancelled in2007 when things really started to tank. I think the prospect park story is interesting to follow but… Read more »

Nice post…some of these people claim they boycott abc but then turn around and will watch one of there talk shows? What hypocrites! I bet half of them do watch some shows on ABC! I dont mind the newbies or young crowd but i do believe if these shows are around in a few years the vets will be pushed to backburner and barely used. They are only there to draw in the long time die hard fans for ratings because PP hopes theyll spread the word to younger viewers these shows are on. You do need younger viewers to… Read more »

I don’t care who the guests are-I cannot stand The View. They are loud, obnoxious & talk over each other & get on my last nerve. And I don’t think they truly respect or understand soaps, I really don’t. They kind of make fun of them & yeah, I know soaps can get crazy & but I can criticize since I really love them but I DO NOT like non-soap lovers to make fun of them! It’s like I can gripe about my husband but nobody else better. Anyway, can’t wait for the 29th-long live all of our soaps. To… Read more »

I wonder if ABC does indeed get served with the lawsuit that Prosepct Park has filed if they will pull these guests from appearing on The View.

PP and ABC should completely sever ties with each other by ABC selling all rights to PP.

The “rent” (licensing fees) PP pays ABC is nearly $10M per year. The 10+ year license they have is already worth $100M to ABC plus their cut of any profits. Why would they sell their valuable property? And where would PP ever find the cash to pay them enough to make them give up all that perpetual passive income? ABC is NOT trying to sabotage this cash cow, nor are they trying to give up all that money. If anything, if PP keeps making themselves a legal or otherwise pain in the heinie, ABC may eventually simply take the rights… Read more »

Some of the start up cash came from government grants, this was well documented in 2011. I have no idea if grants are still involved. Cannot figure out how prospect park will pay the bills much less their royalties to abc. This is more interesting than the actual show from a business standpoint.
I bet the actors have concerns as well but they cannot say so publicly and most have no job offers elsewhere.

Where exactly was this “well documented”.

“most have no job offers elsewhere.” Boy it is funny how many ppl think they know what goes on in the private lives of these actors!

All My Children Alum Ben Jörgensen Reportedly Dead At 51

According to his former All My Children castmate, Brian Gaskill. there is sad news in the soap world today.  Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin on All My Children and Chris on As the World Turns passed away on Tuesday at the age of 51, apparently via suicide, although unconfirmed as to his cause of death.

Gaskill, who played Bobby Warner while in Pine Valley shared via his Instagram:  “Sad news to report. Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin Sheffield on All My Children has past away at 51 years old.  My understanding is it was suicide.  I have heard he suffered from Bipolar disorder but as I have not spoke to him in years I do not know all the details. I just want to remember the good times we had on the set of All My Children 24 years ago. He was a good guy and had the courage to play a gay teenager on tv back when it was nowhere near as common to have representation as it is today. He was part of an award winning storyline…but mostly we just had some good times back then…my condolences go out to his friends and family. Please everybody hang in there and reach out for help if you need it. ”

Since the time of Brian’s posting, friends, colleagues and fans have been posting tributes and condolences on the actor’s Facebook page.  You can view that here.

 

In this heartbreaking photo below from Steven Bergman, during his time on As the World Turns, Ben is pictured with the late Nathaniel Marston, as well as Jaime Nicole Dudney and Terri Conn.

On All My Children, Ben was part of the important social issue storyline brought into the ABC legacy soap opera by the iconic Agnes Nixon, who was always trying to move the needle forward in daytime, as the character of Kevin was a gay high school student facing bullying, ridicule and discrimination for his sexuality.

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.
