DWTS & AMC's J.R. Martinez makes the cover of PEOPLE Magazine!

So who has ended up being one of the biggest stars the soap genre has even seen? None other than All My Children’s J.R. Martinez (Brot Monroe) who is now hitting the ballroom dance floor on ABC’s hit series Dancing with the Stars every week!

And through his performances and inspiring true life story, J.R. is now on the cover of this week’s PEOPLE magazine.  Something only a small list of soap stars have ever been able to do!  And, remember not even two months ago, he was a relative unknown to most American that is how popular J.R. has become!

According to PEOPLE, ” These days, the name J.R. Martinez evokes smiles, namely from the millions of Dancing with the Stars fans who have fallen in love with the Iraq-War-hero-turned-golden-boy of the ballroom. For its latest cover story, Martinez, 28, tells PEOPLE that he considers himself blessed to have experienced the trauma. If not for the Humvee he was driving hitting a land mine, “My life would not be what it is today: full of joy, happiness and positivity,” he says.

Congrats to J.R. on making the cover and getting his life story out to millions as an inspiration of hope, courage and inner strength!

I think it is fantastic that he can do something that has never before been done. He is truly trail blazing. I am so proud for him and proud of AMC for having the brilliance to hire him as well as DWTS for casting him as well. This is great stuff.

Is Brot Monroe on the map for the AMC reboot for Prospect Park? Anyone with smarts would develop this character and make it happen. Martinez always seemed like a great guy and Brot Monroe (give the character a family!) could be a major player in the new Pine Valley.

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.
