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?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.

REPORT: Clayton Echard Cast as the Next ‘Bachelor’ for its Upcoming 26th Season

After all the turmoil of the previous ‘Bachelor’ seasons, it looks like the ABC reality-dating competition may have found their man.

Multiple sources are reporting that Clayton Echard, who no one has seen yet, and who appears as a suitor in Michelle Young’s season of The Bachelorette, has actually been given the nod to be the lead in the new upcoming 26th season of the series.

On Wednesday, leaked photos appeared online of Echard with a camera crew by E! News  questioning if he would be the new “Bachelor.”

Variety is saying that their sources are saying Echard is ABC’s choice for the lead, but that no official announcement will be forthcoming especially since Young’s season of The Bachelorette which bows October 19th had not even begun.

What we can glean on Echard from his Instagram page is that he is 28-years-old and from Missouri and played college football at U of Missouri and was signed as pro to play with tight end with the Seattle Seahawks, but he is now an orthopaedic saleman.

So, will you be watching the new season of The Bachelor when it comes around most likely in January 2022? Comment below.
