Well, it’s time to be whistlin’ Dixie! Cady McClain posted a very special message today on her website confirming that she has plans to be part of Prospect Park’s All My Children reboot! Therefore, it looks like Dixie Martin will be back in action!

Cady stated: “Since word got out that AMC/PP contacted me, I thought it was best to wait a bit until I confirmed it out of respect for the fact I am still sorting out the details of the situation. However, I feel confident in telling you that I will be a part of the AMC Internet Re-boot. I am very excited about the possibilities for the show in this medium and want to help give it every chance at success.

As you probably know by now, I am fascinated with all the many possibilities for creative expression that the Internet has to offer. I have a feeling the show will find many new opportunities for connecting with fans and I look forward to being a part of that as well.

I am also thrilled that Ginger Smith, who has worked on AMC for as long as I can remember, is finally getting the chance to helm the show. There are few people that know and love AMC as much as Ginger. I know for a fact she is doing everything in her power to make the show as wonderful for the long time fans as she possibly can.   Thank you all so much for your well wishes and support.”

So after hearing directly from Cady, are you more excited about the AMC reboot? What story do you think the writers should put in place for Dixie?  Let us know!

Actually, having the 3 time back from the dead, Dixie back is repulsive to me YUCK.

She is very hard to tolerate and without Tad to hold up the always way too needy uneducated no career Dixie, she is rather useless..
Just what will she do? Work at the car wash LOL 🙂
Maybe she will die and come back from the dead for the 4th time LOL the Dixie character does that very well LOL ..

Anyways, I am not pleased, but what can ya do ..

You are just an unhappy person. Sing You Are My Sunshine they Dixie would sing it to JR when he was young and maybe you will be a happier person! 🙂

How ridiculous Tad floundered around with out her.She NEVER should have been killed off with those stupid pancakes after all the trouble to return her to the series.I’ll watch Dixie run the car wash or the chicken shack perhaps.
Tad will probably be back too.

Tad fell in love with Cara without Dixie around lol
And he gathered friends and family to tell them all he had fallen in love with Cara and he gave a great speech good’bye to Dixie :)..
Tad was reborn and alive again and happy with Cara 🙂

Since Cara is back I do hope they rekindle the heat/love of Tad and Cara 🙂

Looking forward to Tad and Cara!!

Yes because he believed that she was dead.If you had the chance to have someone back that you lost to death,it would be UBELIEVABLE, to think you wouldn’t take it.

I had forgotten about her Breakfast of Champions, the Poisonous Pumpkin
Pancake Caper – that was an all time low in stupidity LoL – but she’s
wonderful in the role of Dixie, just keep her away from the Breakfast table.

I’m sorry, I can’t remember, were they Pumpkin Pancakes (yuck) or were they Peanut Butter Pancakes (double yuck) – at any rate, I know they were intended for Babe but Dixie ate ’em instead. What a way to go – but she came back…again…and again…and again….

Since the casting seems so sketchy thus far I am happy to see that Dixie will be back as portrayed by Cady. True, her character has come and gone a few times too many to count, but I am glad that more familiar faces are beginning to emerge. There will be a new J.R., and that’s all right since there’s really no choice considering the actor (Jacob Young) most known for playing him is contracted to another show – so I hope that having the characters of Dixie, Angie, Jesse, the evil Dr. Hayward and Opal as played by the actors most associated with them with help maintain a semblence of the original show.

A Cara/David/Dix tri, without any Martin men around, works for me! 🙂 If Cara thought Tad’s bond with Dix was unbreakable, her dealing with David’s obsession for Dix and coming out on the other side with him and their child will finally cure him of it!

I’ll be happy to see Dr. David and Cara back too! As for Dixie, I’m having a hard time figuring out how Cady comes back again as Dixie. 🙂

If MEK isn’t returning, I’d be just as happy with a new Tad finding a new love, who just looks like Dixie. 😉

I read that Micheal Knight was busy with other things and didnt want to return to his role as Tad. im still happy to at least get Cady back as Dixie. like her or not you still need some of these vets tied to the shows history otherwise with too many newbies what would be the point of bringing AMC back if its going to look like a totally different show. You might as well rename it All My Different Children. If they did get Tad back, having him eventually reunite with Dixie would be just fine with me.

Having Dixie back is GREAT news! Now if we can only hear that MEK is also on board we are good to go!

Now we’re talkin’. Things are shaping up nicely for the revival of All My Children. Can’t wait to see Cady playing Dixie again.

Now for Adam, get him back too!

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.
