Esta TerBlanche to return to All My Children as Gillian!

We had heard this was in the works once All My Children began to come up with a way to bring back and reunite longtime super couples and characters, but this should be very interesting.

ABC Soaps In Depth is confirming today that Esta TerBlanche will be making a return appearance as Gillian, Ryan Lavery’s beloved princess who died and her heart was then donated to Brooke’s daughter, Laura!

SID also is reporting that Esta has already picked up and received her scripts.

Ah, but here is the kicker! AMC viewers recall that guess who performed the surgery? That’s right… Dr. David Hayward.  So considering all these former dead peeps are somehow being resurrected, it would be safe to assume that Gillian is just another link to the dastardly doc’s “Project Orpheus”!

So, is the plot that Ryan reunites with Gillian and Greenlee reunites with Leo (Don’t miss this week’s August 4th episode) just a part in cementing Ryan and Greenlee as a couple or will this break them apart?  Stay tuned.

These are just pure stupid. I thought bringing back the old writers would make the show better, but if this is what they had it mind, then they’re just as bad as the recently fired writers. Agnes how can you allow this to happen to your show. I mean, come one you can get away with this once, but not every single person coming back to life at the hands of dr. hayward. It insults our intelligence, and frankly this is not the scifi channel.

I respectfully disagree with the above comment. I absolutely love the way the show is being written now. It is the perfect “swan song” for Dr. Death & for all of the characters. Brava Ms. Nixon & Ms. Broderick

Well, if they’re going to bring back every person who’s ever previously appeared as an angel, I’m glad they’re bringing Esta back! I’ve never liked Ryan more than when he was with Gillian :D.

Soaps have been bringing people back from the dead from their inception. The difference between good soap and bad soap is not whether they use cliches, but how well those cliches are written.

I will have to tell my sister about this. She stopped watching AMC, when they killed off Gillian. This is sure to make her happy. Gillian was the only woman that I thought Ryan was at his best with. Ever since they killed Gillian off, it’s been one nauseating story after the other, with Ryan. Although, I will say this, they need to hurry up and let Dixie get her act together….this whole catatonic state that she’s in, is getting old real fast, and we don’t have that much time left.

And I forgot to mention, a long time ago, I stated on a blog that they should bring just about all of the characters they are currently bringing back. Although, I would have had Vanessa be responsible for Leo’s disappearance. That would have made more sense for me. She could have pulled him out of the falls, after he suffered a head injury, and brainwashed him to think that they were back to their old antics of conning the people of Pine Valley. Plus, she could have been behind Erica’s kidnapping….cause we all know that Vanessa hated Erica Kane. Think… Read more »

It has always been Ryan and his Princess. Their chemistry is out of this world.. Haven’t watched AMC in years but I’ll tune for this couple.

Kelly Ripa’s First Book On the Way in 2022

Former All My Children star, now co-host of Live with Kelly and Ryan and a successful executive producer in her own right, Kelly Ripa, will add writer to her list of credits.

New this week is that Ripa is sharing a look at her real-life in a book, that will be released next spring in April of 2022.

According to the intel, the book entitled Live Wire will feature sharp, funny, and honest collection of real-life stories from Ripa, showing the many dimensions and crackling wit of the beloved daytime talk show host.

As soap fans know, Ripa has been married to Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) and the two share three children together.

The loglines for the release share: “In Live Wire, Kelly shows what really makes her tick. As a professional, as a wife, as a daughter and as a mother, she brings a hard-earned wisdom and an eye for the absurdity of life to every minute of every day. It is her relatability in all of these roles that has earned her fans worldwide and millions of followers on social media. Whether recounting how she and Mark really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment) Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.
Surprising, at times savage, a little shameless and always with humor… Live Wire shows Kelly as she really is offscreen—a very wise woman who has something to say.”

So intrigued to read Kelly’s book when it is released next year? Comment below.
