Did Brian Frons chuckle as he passed by protesting soap fans at ABC Upfronts?

Soap Opera Network is reporting that they have an image captured yesterday of ABC Daytime President, Brian Frons, of what appears to be him chuckling or laughing as he passes by heartbroken and upset soap opera fans, who were outside Lincoln Center at the ABC Upfronts, protesting the decision to cancel All My Children and One Life to Live!

With dedicated ABC Daytime viewers already pushing back on the decision to replace AMC and OLTL with The Chew and The Revolution, this comes across as a untimely reaction from Frons, if this was indeed the case.

Whether he was truly laughing or smiling about the protesters one might never know.  But what ever the case, this image is getting fans riled up on the web, once again.

Frons doesn’t give a flying flip about how the devoted fans feel. It was probably a sinister “I have the last word and there’s nothing you can do about it, kind of laugh. He’s supposedly laughing all the way to the bank at viewers expense, I will not be watching any of ABC’s replacements. They are not worth my time.

There is a clear picture of him laughing walking by the protestors.. so.unprofessional and disrespectful just as he has treated us all along… how he can behave this way and be the president of a major network is shocking. Disney just doesn’t care they have bigger things going on than dealing with ABC. They all just are out for corporate greed..

THIS IS WHY I LOVE NY ! Yes you can see him smirking what arrogance and as Ethel above says Karma is a bitch. Unemployment would not even upset his appetite-just imagine his severance package-the whole of NY and NJ could live on it-well maybe overstating but atleast Staten Island-what an AH.

My definition of Brian Frons:
1. Appears Brain dead
2. Makes discriminating remarks about BIG women
3 Will be downfall of ABC (as viewers boycott this network because of his
ignorance)

I think Katie Curric is bad for tv. Goes to the alll hte newtorks and causes people to lose thier jobs. Not right. I hope ABC goes down the tubes!

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.
