All My Children’s Debbi Morgan (Angie Hubbard) had made soap headlines over the last several weeks with the news that as soon as she ends her network television run as fan favorite, Dr Angie Hubbard, she is departing to Genoa City and joining the cast of The Young and the Restless.

Now shrouded in secrecy as to what exactly Emmy-winner Morgan’s new role will be, she took to her official website to clear up any rumors that she is heading to the number one soap as a the new Drucilla Winters, which till now has always been played to the hilt by Victoria Rowell.  Below is Morgan’s statement on the matter:

Debbi Morgan: “I’m very excited about joining Y&R, and already have relationships with the actors over there.   And after playing Dr. Angie Hubbard on and off for over twenty-five year, I am ready  to step into a new pair of shoes. As we get closer to my joining the show, which won’t be until September, I will fill you in on who and what my new character is. But for those who have speculated about the possibility of my taking over the role of the ex- ‘Drucilla Winters’, played by the wonderfully talented Victoria Rowell, I can tell you absolutely not!…No way…No how! Ms. Rowell has put her stamp on the role of Drucilla, and I know her fans would be outraged to see me, or any other actress, come in and try to take her place. I wouldn’t even attempt to go there. As far as I’m concerned, Victoria Rowell is simply irreplaceable as ‘Drucilla.”

But I am terribly excited about the role I will be playing and I can only hope that my devoted fans who have followed my career as “Angie” all these years, as well as many other roles I have played outside of daytime will take this new journey with along with me!”

Thank God, the powers-that-be are giving Morgan a new role and no having her be a recast! So now that we know Morgan is not Dru, could Rowell be on her way back, too?

Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes OUT at ABC and ‘GMA3’

It’s not ending well for Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes. The former GMA3 co-hosts, who had their affair come to light publicly, have been let go by ABC after a lengthy mediation session on Thursday.

Now, the network has severed all ties with Robach and Holmes and they will receive payouts of their contracts.

According to TMZ: the long mediation session was “extremely contentious,” with ABC reps accusing both Amy and T.J. of various forms of misconduct, which one source characterized as “a witch hunt.”

They go on detail that Amy and T.J were told that they did not handle their romance appropriately by waiting too long to disclose it to ABC executives.

ABC expressed that their “behavior on set” was “uncomfortable” for some ABC staff.

Page Six is also reporting that their source shared from the talks, that unless ABC reaches a satisfactory departure agreement with both Amy and T.J., they would both be looking at filing lawsuits against the network.

In additional accusations, ABC said alcohol had been found in Robach’s dressing room.  However, that was disputed as ABC executives had gifted liquor bottles to Robach and other on-air ABC talent. Robach was also accused of showing up “drunk” to work after attending the College Football National Championship last year.  Amy claims she was just tired.

So, what do you think of Robach and Holmes being given the hook by ABC and being show the front door? Comment below.
