All My Children’s dastardly ex-David Hayward, Vincent Irizarry has confirmed to ABC Soaps In Depth, rumors that had been circulating for several months about the status of his real-life marriage.  The Daytime Emmy winner confirmed that he and his wife, Avalon have indeed separated .  “Avalon and I have been separated for the better part of this year and are in the process of going through a divorce. Our separation has been amicable as we continue to be friends. Our greatest priority will never cease to be the well-being of our two amazing children whom we love beyond words as parents.”

And while we know divorce proceeding are always tough on a family, our thoughts are with Irizarry.  Our soap hope is that his beloved character – the doc you love to hate – may be somehow in the not to distance horizon- set to re-enter the Pine Valley canvas.   Even though Irizarry was killed off…doesn’t it seem like David would have nine lives?  Do you think Irizarry is really gone from AMC, or do you think there is a larger plan at play in the works from the powers-that-be in Pine Valley?  Let us know.

It is a shame to watch this man who claims to be strong devoted Christian and Father continue to have affairs and leave the mothers of his numerous children. I hope other Christian actors will stand up and hold this man accountable for his actions.

In answer to Kirkcameron’s message, it is sad, Kirk, that Vincent is going through another divorce. However, getting a divorce has nothing to do with his Christianity. My Bible says: If you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you will be saved.

I don’t think we should judge people who are not doing what we think they should be doing. That’s up to the Lord. I was Vincent’s web manager for nearly 10 years. I’ve gotten to know him through the years and know he is a fine and caring person. Do you know him? I can tell you that I KNOW the Lord loves him and will be with him through eternity.

11-22-10 I KNEW David Hayward would never kill himself. David has too much of a God complex to ever commit suicide. He would much rather be the puppet master and control everyone around him and those he cannot control, make them pay. I LOVE the character David Hayward and I LOVE the actor Vincent Irizarry who plays him. Today AMC moved back to my number one slot of things I MUST watch on tv. He was my favorite character and I found myself barely watching after he left in September. I watched today to see the scenes about Zack to see if he is really dead (I don’t think he is) and I am so glad I did because the last scene caught me by surprise. A very good one. One that AMC did an EXCELLENT job of keeping secret. I like those kinds of surprises. 🙂

Irizzary is a good actor, but I’m very tired of David Hayward. I’ve watched AMC from its beginning. I’ve seen villains come and go. There are no scenarios that I haven’t seen or for which I can’t figure out the outcomes. A villain is one thing, but his character is no longer entertaining. He has become too predictable and therefore boring. It’s very sad to see Thorsten Kaye’s character gone and David Hayward’s resurrected. Please, someone pull the plug on Hayward’s ventilator.

How can All My Children have a finale when it’s being transitioned over to the WEB? Is it or is it not continuing? This is absolutely frustrating to hear conflicting stories! This very unnerving situation is a soap opera story itself with all it’s twists and turns! Someone with the inside scoop, please have the decency to tell the fans the truth of what is to become of All My Children!

I have never believed in rumors and never will when it comes to people in the media as well as close friends. Call me crazy but I believe that a open mind is something you must have to be a real Christian. I was raised in a Catholic family yet saw so many people Christian or otherwise that closed their minds and hearts. Turning 50 in December of 2012, being divorced, watching my mother pass away, and living on my own has made me learn to be more outspoken And if by some miracle, I would meet a celebrity (including Vincent Izzarry) my first impression would not be influenced by what I read. We all have minds of our own, use your own instead of someone elses.

Cameron Mathison Reveals Cancer Diagnosis and Shares Heartfelt Message

One of our the best guys we know, Cameron Mathison (co-host, Home & Family and Ex-Ryan Lavery, All My Children), revealed over the last 24 hours that he has been diagnosed with Renal Cell Carcinoma – kidney cancer, but treatment for him will be underway and the prognosis is good.

Cameron first shared the news on Monday’s Home & Family in a special announcement enlightening viewers on his health condition (watch video below) and later took to his Instagram and social media to share more details.   Of note: Mathison’s healthy lifestyle has indeed helped, and shown, that his cancer has not spread.

In addition, Mathison wrote: “About a month ago, I had an MRI for some gut issues I’ve been having, and during that MRI they fd a tumor on my right kidney. It’s consistent with Renal Cell Carcinoma … or kidney cancer. The good news is that it hasn’t spread to any other organs🙏🏼 They say my healthy lifestyle and diet has no doubt helped keep it from growing and spreading to other areas, as doctors think it’s been growing in me for minimum 10 years🙏🏼. I am extremely lucky that we found it early.” He thanked his doctor and his family, saying, “[wife] Vanessa, [kids] Lucas and Leila have been absolutely amazing with their love and support… as have my mom, dad, brother, and everyone at Home and Family, Hallmark, and ET❤️ My surgery is scheduled on September 12th, I was hoping to receive positive thoughts, prayers, or whatever you feel comfortable with, on 9/12 (my surgery is at 1pm PST) 🙏🏼.” He concluded, “Feeling very grateful and optimistic!”

8 Years To The Day Of All My Children & One Life to Live Being Canceled; Still Considered By Many Worst Move For Daytime

It’s hard to believe that 8 years ago today on April 14th, 2011, the soap world, its fans, and the cast members, learned of the heartbreaking news that ABC, in one swift move, decimated its daytime line-up when they announced the cancellations of long running series, All My Children (which would end at its 41st year), and One Life to Live (which would ends its run in its 43rd year).

At the time, ABC announced it would move to more lifestyle/entertainment series to replace these dramas.  In its place came The Chew and The Revolution, neither show is still on the air today.  Executives at that time pointed to research saying that times are changing and that their decision was “guided by extensive research into what today’s daytime viewers want,” and blame, in part, “the changing viewing patterns of the audience” for the axing of AMC and OLTL

Then ABC Daytime President, Brian Frons had joked to Deadline about the big announcement that he: “Pre-entered the witness protection program prior to today’s events.”  He added that “The demise of the two venerable soaps was actually a year in the making.  A year ago, we started to look at our projections where the ratings for the soaps would go.  When those projections came in pretty discouraging, the network began to aggressively develop replacement shows, 15 of them.  Four of the 15 were picked up to pilot: The Chew and The Revolution and two others, a talk show and a dating show. Originally, the idea was to cancel only one daytime drama.  The way the ratings developed and the pilots turned out, the ratings developed negatively and pilots developed positively, so we decided to make a bigger shift.”  Of note is that when it went off the air, One Life to Live was in third place among its competitors in the ratings.

The press release that came with the cancellations stated: “To honor the core, passionate audience and their rich history both shows will conclude in a manner that respects their legacies and the longstanding hopes of many of their viewers.”

Following the cancellations daytime reeled. The mainstream was sure it meant the endings of the soaps, period.  However, four shows illustrated that is not true at all.  For Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless all remain, and still whether they are up or down in their numbers/ratings, they remain relevant and important to the enduring daytime viewing audience.

Sadly, as with any shows, the end of ABC’s AMC and OLTL meant loss of jobs for so many working in front of the camera and behind the scenes. One Life was the last soap opera in production in New York at the time.  AMC was already being shot in LA to cut costs to save it.

Still in 2019, if you venture on to social media, especially Twitter, you see fans constantly missing its stars and the towns of Llanview and Pine Valley, wanting this wrong rectified.  Although Prospect Park tried to revive the show with their online versions, eventually after legal battles that went on for a few years, ABC now retains the right to these properties,

The good news is that many favorites from AMC and OLTL have found success and been hired on other soap operas, bringing their followings with them, whether it be on-screen, or in the writing, producing, directing or crew departments.

So, do you think the loss of AMC and OLTL consolidated daytime and made the remaining shows stronger so they would not be touched or canceled?  Do you think ABC should try to mount a resurrected AMC and OLTL or an amalgamation of the two?  Do you remember where you were when you learned the two soaps were cancelled? Was this the worst misstep of all-time for daytime? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
