In a must-hear interview on Friday’s Soap Central Live, Victoria Rowell, fresh on her huge media tour for her new novel, Secrets of a Soap Opera Diva, admitted to Soap Central Live host, Dan Kroll that there had been some sort of discussion to bring Victoria to All My Children to reunite her with her former, Eve’s Bayou co-star, Debbi Morgan (Angie). 

Rowell stated,  “I will definitely tell you this… That’s something that All My Children and I have had a little dialogue about.  And certainly Debbi Morgan and I have talked about that.”

Rowell went on to say that this is not the first time that Morgan and Rowell have tried to work together again, but on a soap.  

Victoria announced, “I tried to get Debbi Morgan on The Young and the Restless as a distant relative and Y&R passed. For what reason, I do not know. It was a silver platter situation — and we were heartbroken. Debbi even wrote a letter, which I delivered to the producer at the time, and unanimously it was turned down.”

That’s really dumb of the Bell soaps. B&B also could have offered Morgan a deal as a District Atty. who hated the Forresters, yet nothing materialized.

She could have been a good sparring partner w/ Stephanie, but instead they have Flannery and Gareis(?!) do acting battles. How dumb.

The Bell soaps keep actors that can’t act on contract, and some even on the backburner or recurring for years like the following: Harmon, Ronn Moss, Don Diamont, Brandon Beemer, Kyle Lowder, Texas Battle, Kim Matula, Drew Tyler Bell, Jennifer Gareis, Ashley Jones, Jack Wagner and Leslie Anne Downe, but they won’t snap up talented actors like Morgan.

That’s why B&B and Y&R are slipping in the ratings. They shouldn’t proclaim they’re number 1 since Y&R is eroding. 5 million viewers every so often, and 3 million on avg is nothing to rejoice abt. And the only reason B&B is number 1 is because it was able to be broadcast in many countries, and most telenovelas and foreign soaps favor the 30 minute format.

Y&R and B&B are slipping bec of bad writers, worse storylines and worst actors.

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.

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…)
