Very sad news to report this afternoon.  According to ABC News, TMZ.com. MSN, and countless other reporting outlets that are just now coming in, TV music maverick, icon, and legendary television host and producer, Dick Clark has died.

The famed TV producer, and “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” host — died from a massive heart attack this morning.  Clark had been in St. John’s hospital in L.A. after undergoing an outpatient procedure last night. Clark suffered the “massive” heart attack following the procedure. Attempts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful.  Dick Clark was 82.

Clark’s health had been on the decline since he suffered a significant stroke in 2004 — forcing him to retire from his hosting gig at “New Years’ Rockin’ Eve,” which he created in 1972.  Ryan Seacrest took over in 2006. Dick has appeared on the show sporadically ever since. His final appearance was in 2011.

Known for his legendary Saturday morning music show American Bandstand, and being the executive producer for many Daytime Emmy broadcasts, our heartfelt sympathies are with Dick’s family and friends on the news of his passing.  On-Air On-Soaps will have more on this developing story as more information becomes available.

Dick Clark will be missed because a lot of musicians started their careers on American Bandstand and i think the show started in the 1950’s

The oldest living teenager is no more! He was great! I loved American Bandstand (can hear Barry Manilow singing the theme song in my head now…), and The $25,000/$100,000 Pyramid, the Bloopers show, and the NYear’s Eve show… He introduced us to so many talented people throughout our lives… he will be remembered well.

Alicia Leigh Willis On Her Heavenly Return To GH: “What a Wonderful Experience Reminiscing With My Favorite Cast & Crew.”

Yesterday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it the surprise return of Alicia Leigh Willis shortly reprising her role of Courtney Matthews, as she escorts Mike (Max Gail) to heaven.

Willis was last seen on GH in 2015 as a spirit and created the role back in 2001.

The actress took to social media and shared:”A little clip of my surprise return on @generalhospitalabc What a wonderful experience reminiscing with my favorite cast & crew.”

Viewers know that as Mike succumbed to Alzheimer’s, he wanted the dignity of not dying in front of his son, Sonny (Maurice Benard), and to shield Sonny from witnessing his death.

But in the story, Mike did not pass on alone; as his daughter showed up to take him with her to the afterlife.

Check out Courtney’s post below.

What did you think of the moment having Courtney be there for Mike at the end of his life? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
