Ah, Pine Valley! Fans who watched Tuesday’s episode of Entertainment Tonight saw ET correspondent and former All My Children star, Cameron Mathison (Ex-Ryan) reunited with the iconic Carol Burnett, who actually appeared on the series as Verla Grubbs.

Burnett is promoting her new book out today, In Such Good Company: Eleven Years of Laughter, Mayhem, and Fun in the Sandbox which takes readers back in time, sharing hilarious behind-the-scenes stories of her beloved variety series, The Carol Burnett Show.

Carol Burnett told Mathison, “I was such a fan of All My Childen and of course, Ryan Lavery!” Later, the two get ready for a game of “Soap Stylings”!

First up was “The Soap Opera Stare” followed by “The Soap Fake Slap”.  Mathison’s set-ups were hilarious, and Burnett was as funny as ever.

Take a stroll down memory lane with Burnett and Mathison after the jump, and let us know if you recall Burnett as Verla Grubbs opposite Susan Lucci (Erica Kane) and company on All My Children in the comment section below!

There will never be another Carol Burnett and a variety show like hers-it was the best of its kind,-the Gone With The Wind Spoof was my favorite sketch…loved Mamas Family-Vicki Lawrence looked a lot like and acted like my late paternal grandma plus dressed like her two…As The Stomach Turns was her soap spoof-there wasnt one thing i disliked about the show except i hated to see it end…Yes, i remember her AMC visit as Verla and Liz Taylors Surprise appearance too…i have an All My Children book autographed by Micheal Nader and the late David Canary!…Also an autograph picture of Jill Larson whom i met over 20 years ago…AMC wasnt good in its finale years but i still miss it!!!

Yes I remember Carol as Verla Grubbs, and I think her long-lost father turned out to be Langley who was married to Phoebe (I could be wrong about that). In another episode, Liz Taylor actually made a rare appearance as a cleaning woman (she was friendly with Carol Burnett) and when another character asked Verla, “do you know who that is?” Verla responded “I have no idea” while viewers of couse knew it was
Elizabeth Taylor. It was well known that Carol was a big fan of ALL MY CHILDREN which by the way I miss to this day.

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
