Vincent Irizarry who plays Dr. David Hayward for all he is worth and then some took to his Facebook page to address his many fans and followers with a post titled: To Be or Not To Be on AMC…That is the Question. In it, Irizarry  shares his thoughts and his status with All My Children now that the show is moving to the web.

Irizarry stated, “I’ve been getting a lot of questions from many of you, asking 2 things: am I going to the AMC Fan Event, and will I be staying with the show when it transitions to the internet? The first is easy, yes, I plan on being at the AMC Fan Event at the end of the month. The second, not so easy. Some have even informed me that it was reported somewhere that I’m staying with the show. That is not at all true at this time. Until I hear from the new producers to learn what they’re offering, I have to work under the assumption that my contract with the show ends on Aug 31 and plan accordingly, which I am.”

So can AMC be the same show without the dastardly and charming doc manipulating, drugging, and transforming the lives of so many of the beloved citizens of Pine Valley? We think not!

I certainly hope he stays on and at least he seems open to it but like everyone on the shows right now, they seem to be as in the dark about what the transition will entail as the public. Truthfully, i don’t think Prospect Park had all the details worked out and the news got leaked before they were quite ready. Hopefully when they get everything ironed out and have a chance to get with the cast about offers, we will be seeing many of our favs including Vincent Irizzarry’s David Hayward!

VI is the ONLY reason to watch this show to begin with, so if he doesn’t transition to the online version, its really got a tough battle to be successful.

I am so sorry, but it is time for David to go! He has done too much, to too many people. VI is a great actor, and I have followed him from his GL days. But, enough is enough!!

I think Vincent and Dr. Hayward should go straight to prime time. He could be the next “House”.

Vincent Irrizarry is why I started watching AMC and will continue to watch it online or anywhere. This being said, I hope that he tries to find other work to showcase his talent because I think he is worth a great deal more than an online show where many of the fans dislike him because he played such a great evil doctor. I watched him on GL and AMC and he is a talented diverse actor that is better than the soaps in my opinion. I hope that he does not disappear because I think he is AMC. Good Luck… Read more »

I HOPE THAT PROSPECT PARK WILL BE ABLE TO AFFORD TO KEEP EVERYONE!
THAT BEING SAID, WE HAVE TO DEAL WITH FINANCIAL REALITY! THERE WILL BE FOUR (4) SHOWS LEFT ON T.V. THAT MEANS THEY CAN NOT OFFER EMPLOYMENT TO THE WHOLE CAST OF AMC & OLTL!! THERE WILL NOT BE ENOUGH ROOM FOR THEM PLUS THEIR REGULAR CASTS!!
I HOPE AMC & OLTL REMAIN INTACT ON-LINE.
I LOVE VINCENTS “DAVID” BUT, THERE IS ONLY SO MUCH THE EVIL DOCTOR DAVID CAN DO WITHOUT FINALLY PAYING FOR HIS CRIMES!

Hello Vincent, Read your comments about AMC and was so hoping that the show will go on with the internet! I am from Naples, Florida living in Fiddlers Creek and saw your name on the members list; do you still own the home? I certainly hope you remain with the show and that it will give us some new and devious plots involving Dr. Hayward! I have been watching the show for 25 years and want it to continue; I understand you are planning your future with or without the show; don’t make plans too soon, we want the dastardly… Read more »

One very special guest for soap fans will be that of Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane, All My Children).  As everyone knows, Carol Burnett was a huge fan of All My Children and Lucci, and eventually got a part written just for her when she appeared not once, but three times throughout the daytime drama’s run on ABC as Verla Grubbs.  The character turned out to the daughter of Langley Wallingford (the late Louis Edmonds).  Burnett appeared in Pine Valley in 1983, 1995, and 2005.

In a statement on the big soiree’, Burnett shared: “I’m so excited NBC decided to throw me a birthday party and invited all of my closest friends. I can’t wait to look back at so many wonderful moments throughout my career, I feel so lucky to share this night with everyone.”

“This special is going to be the best party ever,” said Mark Bracco, executive producer and president of Silent House Productions. “It will be an evening of music, comedy and dozens of big stars paying tribute to the one and only Carol Burnett.  We look forward to everyone at home celebrating right along with us.”

Viewers will see some of the funniest and most memorable moments of Burnett’s legendary career including moment from the acclaimed sketch comedy series The Carol Burnett Show.

So, looking forward to the special honoring Carol Burnett’s legendary career? Hope they bring up her role as Verla on AMC? For now, check out this scene featuring Carol, Ruth Warrick (Phoebe) and Louis Edmonds from All My Children, and let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.

TONIGHT: AMC Alum Jonathan Bennett in Hallmark’s First LGBTQ+ Led Rom-Com ‘The Holiday Sitter’

In Hallmark’s first holiday movie offering featuring a same-sex love story at its epicenter, Jonathan Bennett (ex-JR Chandler, All My Children) not only stars, but is the project’s executive producer.  And, on Sunday night, when The Holiday Sitter premieres at 8 p.m. EST, it’s a big deal.

After much outcry for Hallmark’s Countdown to Christmas programming block to be more inclusive, the channel is now poised to be on the right side of history.

The set-up of this ‘meet-cute’ rom-com goes something like this: Sam (Bennett) who is a workaholic has to ditch his Hawaiian holiday plans when he is asked to watch his sister’s children (his niece and nephew).  However, when Sam becomes overwhelmed, he gets a helping hand from his sister’s neighbor, Jason played by George Krissa. And within a blink of an eye, Sam and Jason find they are both unattached and attracted to each other, and Christmas becomes a lot brighter for the two of them.

As for Bennett, he previously appeared in Hallmark’s 2020 film, The Christmas House which was the channel’s first holiday movie to include a same-sex storyline. He later returned to that role in last year’s sequel The Christmas House 2: Deck Those Halls.

Bennett told USA Today on tonight’s milestone Hallmark holiday tale: “What’s so special about The Holiday Sitter is that it’s the first time we’ll see two men meet-cute and fall in love at Christmas. We tell a story that’s really important, so people that are watching it feel seen when they watch it. But just like Christmas is for everybody, The Holiday Sitter is for everybody… It just happens to have two men as the lead.”

Hallmark Media’s Executive Vice-President, Lisa Hamilton told Deadline: “We felt that it was time for a story with a gay couple. We are really trying to make it so that everybody sees themselves when they tune in. We are trying to stay true to the Hallmark brand values, one of which is inclusiveness. It’s a true of Hallmark cards, which has a card for every kind of occasion. In the past, there was a focus on one particular kind of love story, and I think everybody thought, ‘wow, we’re not telling the whole story here.’”

The timing of The Holiday Sitter comes after Candace Cameron Bure received much backlash for her sentiments when she told the Wall Street Journal that the Great American Family network in which she stars in several of their holiday films, will “keep traditional marriage at the core” and never do stories/movies featuring same-sex couples.

Check out a preview for The Holiday Sitter below.

Now let us know, what do you think of the Hallmark Channel finally featuring a gay love story for one of its holiday films? Will you be checking out the landmark movie? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
