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!

As much as I love her, I won’t be going to see that … but good for her!

Same here…i wish her well…ive enjoyed Debbi since she appeared in Roots…i wish Days wouldve snapped her up!!!

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 don’t have STARZ or I would surely check her out on the new show. Congratulations to Debbi!

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.

Glad she has a job but hate seeing that we are losing more soap stars. wish someone would do the soaps right and get our cast back…

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 pat and believable at an incredibly fast pace. These are the true pros in show business and people who don’t watch and are not familiar with it all just don’t get it. Well, I do and I want to thank all of them for so many years of laughter, tears, smiles, and generally just looking forward to each new day because I knew I would be seeing all of them. THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU in every endeavor you undertake!

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 to see Tad and Jesse in action –

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.

Speaking on the upcoming project, Jacob said, “I’m flying at the end of the March to Prague to direct, produce and star in a film with Joan Collins (ex-Dynasty). Nadia Bjorlin (ex-Chloe, Days of our Lives) is in it, and Toby Alexander Smith from Eastenders (ex-Gray Atkins). Plus, a couple of my Broadway friends and a very well known Czech actress (Hana Vagnerova).”

According to Jacob, the production start date is April 1st. He added on the premise of the film, “It’s very Agatha Christie sort of ‘Knives Out’ without having a hundred million dollars to shoot it, but still will be a lovely film nonetheless.” Young said the plan is to finish all principal photography by April 17th.

IMDb has more on the film. It shared that former All My Children star Trent Garrett (ex-Asher Pike) is listed as co-directing the feature. Mark Rozzano is listed as writer of Murder Between Friends.

Maurice Benard Reveals All My Children’s Lee Meriweather and Daughter’s Alzheimer’s Diagnosis

At the beginning of the latest episode of General Hospital star, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos) State of Mind series, he delivered some heartbreaking news with a purpose.

Kyle Oldham, the daughter of former All My Children star, Lee Meriwether (ex-Ruth Martin), who previously made a guest appearance on Benard’s show, returned for a new interview which will be coming soon.

During their conversation, Oldham shared that her beloved mother has Alzheimer’s. Sadly, according to Benard, Kyle also revealed she has been diagnosed with the disease as well.

Maurice expressed, “We talked about her mother and having Alzheimer’s and it was an amazing interview. And then Kyle said, ‘I gotta tell you something. I have Alzheimer’s.’”

Apparently, Kyle has agreed to come on State of Mind, periodically as the effects of Alzheimer’s take a hold of her to help educate others. “We decided that she was gonna come in … she was gonna call me and tell me as she progresses,” Benard shared. “She was going to come in again so the audience could see with their eyes what Alzheimer’s does to someone.”

Benard’s guest for this current episode of State of Mind was Vernee Watson (Stella, GH), who along with Maurice, was part of the Alzheimer’s storyline on the ABC daytime drama series that saw Mike Corbin (Max Gail) eventually pass away.

As for Lee Meriwether, not only is she known for her role on AMC, but also for her roles as Catwoman in Batman: The Movie, and The Courtship of Eddie’s Father, and for the television series, Barnaby Jones, the New Andy Griffith Show and The Munsters to name only a few.

In soap operas, Meriwether was cast in The Young Marrieds years prior to her time on All My Children where she replaced Mary Fickett in the matriarchal role in the Martin family. She played the role from 1996-99, 2002-03, and 2007-11.

Meriwether’s daughter, Kyle Oldham, has been an actress and spokesperson herself through the years. She appeared on The Price is Right for over 14 years until she couldn’t anymore after going through multiple surgeries in her adult life.

You can check out the full episode of State of Mind with Maurice an Vernee below.
