Those already missing All My Children will get to see fan favorite Debbi Morgan in a brand new role!  The Daytime Emmy winning actress had landed a role in rapper 50 Cent’s new STARZ cable drama entitled Power!  According to Deadline.com, Morgan will play the role of Estelle, the mother of Tasha St. Patrick.

Power “tells the story of wealthy New York City nightclub owner James “Ghost” St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick), who wants to build an empire and turn the club into a Fortune 500 business, but there’s just one problem:  He is living a double life. When he is not in the club, he is the kingpin of the most lucrative drug network in New York for a very high-level clientele.  La La Anthony will play LaKeisha Grant – childhood friend to Tasha St. Patrick (Naturi Naughto) and her closest confidant who is kept in the dark on certain aspects of Tasha’s life out of necessity.”

Will you be checking out Debbi in Power?  Are you happy to hear the AMC gang are booking other projects? Let us know!

How funny, I was thinking the same thing, Days should have snagged her for a role. She could have been a sister of Maxine! I keep waiting for Maxine to become a contract player cause she is awesome!

I would have liked to see them return in AMC but since that’s not happening now, I’m glad some of them have been finding other work. I love Debbi & know she’ll be awesome in Power. I don’t have Starz so I won’t be seeing the show but I wish Debbi all the very best!!!

I doubt AMC will ever return period. The only way for AMC to return is if PP wins the lawsuit against ABC. But that’s unlikely to happen. ABC-Disney is just too big and too powerful.

Yes, I am happy. Not a show I would typically watch but I am always happy to see Jill, Debi, Darnell, Vince, Thor, etc. well and working. These are top of their craft actors, true professionals who have given me countless hours of enjoyment watching them do what they do best. I only wish the stigma of ‘soap operas’ wasn’t out there. The average person just doesn’t realize what goes into an actor’s life when they have a starring/busy role on a soap opera. The multitude of pages to memorize, and all of the rest that has to be down… Read more »

Happy to see that a talented actress which Debbi most certainly is already has an acting assignment. Deeply saddened (truly) by the departure of ALL MY CHILDREN more than words can express, and if it should resurface, and I realize that’s a pretty big “IF” – we would really have to accept new faces in pivotal roles. I don’t know if fans would accept a new Dr. Angie, and without Angie, what does Jesse do – and the most disappointing factor in this utter insanity (re AMC’s untimely cancellation) is that we won’t, at least for now, get a chance… Read more »

I am very happy for her. The AMC & OLTL deal is a mess!

It really pisses me off that so many of the actors I like are doing cable shows that I can’t watch! I can’t afford to pay for every premium cable show, so I’m sure I miss out on a lot.
But I wish her luck and success!

I was hoping Morgan would turn up on GH as TJ’s neglectful mother. The character has been mentioned a few times lately which makes me think she’ll be in Port Charles soon.

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.
