This sounds like a must-see for all La Lucci fans!   The executive producers of the fall series pilot, Devious Maids, Marc Cherry and Eva Longoria (both of Desperate Housewives fame), previewed for TV Guide, Susan Lucci’s hilarious new role in the nighttime soap, that of Genevieve Delacourt.

So what is a Genevieve Delacourt?  She is a flamboyant, wealthy woman with a gorgeous son, a flirty teenage maid named Valentina and a serious personality disorder.  “When we first see her, she’s attempting suicide again. Of course, we play it for comedic effect. Susan spent her first scenes under a bed clutching a bottle of pills. And she threw herself into this with a total sense of humor about it,’ revealed Marc Cherry.  Marc though is keeping the circumstances that lead Genevieve to attempt suicide under wraps for now.

Eva Longoria offered this about the soap icon, ” She’s hysterical — so amazing.  I think Susan missed her true calling. She’s a strong comedic actress and the loveliest person you’d ever meet.  Not at all the soap opera diva.”

We will know “officially” next week if Devious Maids is going into full production for its first season when ABC reveals its fall lineup at the Upfronts in New York.   Word in the entertainment trades is;  that the series is greenlighted!  So, will you tune-in to see Susan in her new role?  Let us know!

I’ll most likely tune in but I do hope she is given some dramatic material as well. I like shows that know how to give a good mix of comedy and drama.

I am sure I sound like a broken record but the entertainment world still want Susan Lucci to be Erica Kane. But I think she will be a blast in the role and I agree I hope they give her some drama too. Better yet let her play this role and a mousy maid too or something. That would be fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But sadly ABC isn’t picking Devious Maids up? Does anyone know why? Without GCB or DH this seems perfect. THey have eye candy, some good storylines, some great comedy, some drama, with the exception of Susan Lucci the show seems targetted at the right demographics for marketing and even then she is an enigma – she sort of transcends the ages – literally and figuratively.

Don’t worry I love ABC soaps – Genevieve Delacourt is not Erica Kane. She is now left trying to seduce the Armenian pool boy and men walk by her like she is sexless asa mailbox – that’s what I read 🙂 !!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

Imagine being in the hot seat and having some of your soap opera favorites trying to stump you with trivia, while trying to best your competition.  Well, that’s what four contestants faced as they battled it out in the ultimate soap trivia game, Soap Opera Know-It-All.

The Michael Fairman Channel just released its fifth episode of its season, where in round one of the game play, stars from the beloved All My Children served up the questions including: Cady McClain (Ex-Dixie), Jill Larson (Ex-Opal), Lindsay Korman-Hartley (Ex-Cara), Vincent Irizarry (Ex-David) and Jacob Young (Ex-Y&R).  In addition, the former cast members from Pine Valley also try to stump viewers at home with some additional character-related questions.

Later in the episode, there is a very special appearance by Eileen Davidson (Y&R, Ex-Days, Santa Barbara and B&B).  It is Eileen who reveals and asks the final question of the game to determine the eventual winner.

For this edition, host Michael Fairman welcomed longtime soap fans: Michael Cochran, Sean McKinley, and Robert Davis along with returning champion, David Bursky for this soap deep-dive competition.
