Associated Television International’s, head honcho, David McKenzie, spoke to the Las Vegas Review-Journal about the upcoming Daytime Emmy Telecast emanating from Sin City for the first time in Emmy history.  It all happens this coming Sunday night, June 27th, with the telecast on CBS.  McKenzie says that the Emmys and Vegas are a perfect match and previews some of the Vegas acts that will be appearing during the two-hour presentation.  Here are some excerpts from the article.

“It’s the first time any Emmycast has been staged somewhere other than the traditional broadcast hubs of New York and Los Angeles. Las Vegas seems an ideal alternative.Think of all the game shows that have come to Las Vegas. Think of all the actual games in Las Vegas — and all the slot machines that are tied into game shows, plus “all the talk shows that come into Vegas.  Add glitz and glamour worthy of any soap opera diva and it adds up to “a fairly cool marriage” between the Daytime Emmys and this year’s Vegas setting.”

McKenzie promises,  a large local contingent appearing on the telecast — including such Strip fixtures as Blue Man Group, Cirque du Soleil, David Copperfield, Marie Osmond, “Jersey Boys” and “Lion King” cast members and the “Jubilee!” showgirls, all of whom are scheduled to appear.

Even more Vegas types, from Cher to Barry Manilow to Garth Brooks, are expected to make taped contributions as part of the show’s tribute to “American Bandstand” and original host Dick Clark, according to McKenzie. (Other familiar faces taking part in the Clark tribute include Chubby Checker, Tony Orlando, Frankie Avalon and the Spinners.)

Do you know if they are still adding Vegas shows to the list? I’d love to get my clients, The Chippendales on there somehow, maybe escorting the lovely ladies onstage or something? Any contact info?

What do all these night time Vegas acts and personalities have to do with the daytime soap operas and talk shows? Absolutely nothing! This Emmy telecast is turning out to be a total joke!!!

Susan Lucci Reveals She Was Contacted to Gauge Interest in Becoming ‘The Golden Bachelorette’

All My Children icon and Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement honoree, Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane), apparently was being considered for the lead in the first-ever season of The Golden Bachelorette.

Making this all the more intriguing is Lucci admitted she really enjoyed The Golden Bachelor’s season and has become a fan and thus a part of ‘Bachelor Nation.’

Although former ‘Golden Bachelor’ contestant Joan Vassos was the ultimate pick by ABC and the producers of The Golden Bachelorette, Lucci told PEOPLE that the show reached out to her people.

Susan shared, “I believe that they contacted my publicist and it wasn’t for me.” She added, “I watched The Golden Bachelor, and I really enjoyed watching The Golden Bachelor. This is a new addiction for me.”

And a few years back. her assistant got Lucci hooked on The Bachelor, as she expressed on the dating series, “I was immediately engaged. I cared. I wanted to know more about these people.”

The outlet shared that they did reach out to ABC and Warner Bros. about potential interest in Susan. However, they did not respond. A source then told the publication that Lucci was not offered a role.

For Susan, finding a second chance at love is an interesting proposition; given that she had the most incredible and enduring 53-year marriage to her late husband and manager, Helmet Huber, who passed away at 84-years-old back in March of 2022.

So, what do you think of Susan being contacted to see if she was interested in becoming ABC’s ‘Golden Bachelorette’ for the senior dating-reality series? Comment below.
