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!

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.

Kelly Ripa Reveals How Her Son Chose NYU Due To The Consuelos Connection To Former Soap EP/ Director, Chris Goutman

Last week on an episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan, the former star of All My Children, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) told Ryan Seacrest how a chance meeting when her son, Michael was deciding where to go to college; between her, Michael, and Chris Goutman (Ex-Executive Producer As the World Turns and former director, All My Children) changed the course of Michael’s creative and academic path.

Turns out that Goutman is now working over at NYU’s Tisch School for the Arts as an assistant professor and academic director.

During their banter on the talk show, Kelly revealed that Goutman directed the screen-test that landed Mark Consuelos the role of Mateo on All My Children, and thus how Ripa met her real-live enduring lovematch.

Ripa explained that Michael was waiting for a sign as to which college to go to as he liked most of the places he saw.  Then came the sign as Ripa explained to Seacrest: “We’re walking down the hallway and I hear a voice I know say, ‘Consuelos!’ “He turns around and I see Chris Goutman, who was our director at All My Children … I worked with him for 11 years.”

Ripa says Chris then expressed to Michael: “You have to come here, because I am the reason you literally exist.”

Ripa is reportedly also working on a film for the class, as well.  Watch what Kelly shared below.
