Colby Shows A Sensitive Side On This Week's All My Children! What Did You Think Of Brooke Newton's Performance?

Several weeks ago the revival of All My Children re-introduced the character of Colby Chandler, a part that on the ABC version had been recast quite a few times! But this time, it looks like the AMC casting director, Alison Goodman and the powers-that-be who preside over Pine Valley  got it right with Brooke Newton (Colby)!

In a relatively short amount of time, this scheming bitch on wheels version of Colby has slept with Pete (Rob Scott Wilson), slept with David (Vincent Irizarry) insinuated herself into the Chandler Media Gala, and is making poor Celia (Jordan Lane Price) feel awful about herself and her relationship with Pete, no matter what Pete says to Celia to try to smooth things over after sleeping with the hot to trot Chandler gal!

But on this week’s second episode of All My Children #44, Colby after hitting the hay with David, is hit with the news that her childhood friend Cassandra (Sal Stowers) is in bad shape, and she runs to the hospital to see her! Once there, Colby tries to cheer up the battered and pregnant Cass with a beauty make-over! But it is to no avail.  However, for the first time as viewers, we see Colby has a heart!  She loves her dear friend Cassandra, and wants to help her, even helping her friend get an abortion!

So we ask you, what did you think of the key scene this week? What do you think of Brooke Newton as the latest Colby Chandler? Would you give her thumbs up?  Share your comments below, and watch a clip from the Cassandra and Colby scene entitled, “Making the Pain”  after the jump!

I loved the softer side of Colby this week, and would love to see more of that. She can be a good person when she wants to be, and not a spoiled brat. I must say that Brook is a talented actress, and she’s showing that she can play what ever character comes her way.

It was the first show I saw of her that I didn’t want to push her out of a 10th floor building. She’s laying it on way too thick when she’s doing the bitchy shtick. This was way more understated and genuine.

Loved seeing the softer side of Colby, made her a more human and believable character! Brooke Newton did a wonderful job showing this softer side.

I thought both Brooke Newton and Sal Stowers did their best work yet in these scenes. While I’ve been enjoying campy Colby, she has been over the top, as has Cassandra with all the screaming and crying, and then in this episode they both calmed down and had a real, heartbreaking conversation. Kudos to both actresses, as well as the writers and directors!

Brooke is a very beautiful and talented young actress, and I think she’s doing an excellent job as Colby. She has breathed fresh, youthful life into this iconic show. I hope Brooke has a long run on AMC and that they don’t recast Colby again. She’s perfect for the role. I loved to see Colby’s tender side, which helped make her a more fully-developed and believable character, plus a good girl for a bit. Hopefully, there will be more of that to come.

Overall, AMC has been terrific online. I’m very impressed with what Prospect Park has done. I’m so grateful to them (and the fans) for bringing this beloved gem back and making it better than ever after the final five subpar years on ABC.

Brooke is doing a fabulous job as Colby! She does over-the-top bitchy SO well and now she is showing she can do softer scenes. Very reminiscent of when Colby first came on the scene as a teen. Nice job. I felt her and Sal had a good friend chemistry, it felt real.

I thought she did a good job of showing that even a b——- has a good side. I think she is doing a good job with the role, Lord knows it’s been played by at least six actresses that I can think of so Brooke Newton can pretty much make the character her own and I think she has the ability to do that.

Outstanding performance… and, so real! Colby shows there is true humanity in all of us. True friendship and shared past moments are priceless. Thanks for making my day… :o)

She plays both sides of Colby well. You need both for a well rounded character.

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.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

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…)
