An older neighbor lady who once in awhile stops over with cookies for me, watched that with me, she watched AMC from early on..
She almost cried, she was misty eyed, and said
” I was young and as pretty as them (the mothers) at the time now I’m as old as they are, it is hard to realize that, it seems like yesterday”
Anyways!
It is hard to accept they killed a great soap for a failed ‘revolution’ and all others seemed to have failed since..
(( I like that clip!! too see them all so young!! that was fun!!!
Tad!! ohhh my god for handsome hot!!!!

We just lost Billy Clyde and now Pat Baxter…i lost many of my real family members and friends close together and i continue to loose my onscreen family members and friends too…also Ann B. Davis who played Alice on primetimes old Brady Bunch has passed away after a tragic fall in her home…sad!!!

I never liked Anne B. Davis, very overated actress, in my opinion she was a spinster. LOL. But very sad? That she passed away.

Wait, Laura–how is Anne B Davis an over rated actress? I don’t recall anyone comparing her to Meryl Streep. She played her part well–a funny, self-depreciating maid who lived to serve the Brady Bunch It wasn’t exactly Shakespeare, nor did it pretend to be. She was so good at being Alice, we believed she really was Alice.
Saying she is overrated as an actress is like saying that Bob Denver from Gilligan’s Island was an overrated actor.

I miss AMC so much!

I can still hear her resonant tone, she provided strength and clarity, in many ways being “the voice of reason” was an unsung role, yet her stateliness made it sing. Blessings upon the memory of Ms. Chamberlain and her family, artistic and native as well as her family of fans.

My condolences to her family.Plus i do think it’s sad we are losing so many of the older performers lately.

I loved her! She was absolutely a class act on AMC. Very saddened to hear of her passing.

She was excellent as Angie’s mom on ALL MY CHILDREN, the show that absolutely never should have been cancelled – and the show deserved better than to only have a brief “on-line” rebirth only to be placed on the indefinite status it currently holds.

I loved her–she was a very good actress. You really believed she was Angie’s mother.
I miss Debbie Morgan and Darnell Williams. It seems a shame that two of the finest actors in daytime drama are not working in soaps anymore. Y& didn’t seem to be able to write for these great actors.

Man, AMC was good back then, and for a long time, too. It was my number one soap, watched from the first day to the last. Lee Chamberlin made Pat Baxter such a real character – as so many were back then. I had no trouble “believing” that she really was Ruth and Joe’s neighbor. Great days…

When Angie came back to AMC when it was still on ABC I hoped that we might get to see her “mother”, or at least hear about her, but we never did.

RIP, great actor and it sounds like a wonderful person as well.

So sad to lose both Lee and Anne. I guess we need to get into the mode of losing more actors on a daily basis, as there has been such a growing media influence since the 1960’s and 1970’s. But that does not mean that their deaths are not sad, just that there will be more of them….

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…)
