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 🙂 !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Will AMC Favorite Josh Duhamel Replace Armie Hammer in JLo’s Film, ‘Shotgun Wedding’?

After a controversial few weeks, which saw Armie Hammer exit his leading role opposite Jennifer Lopez in Liongate’s upcoming romantic-comedy/adventure film Shotgun Wedding, it appears the motion picture has found its replacement if the ink is signed.

Former All My Children and Daytime Emmy winner Josh Duhamel (Ex-Leo) has been picked as Hammer’s replacement.

The film tells the story of a couple that gathers their families for a destination wedding even as they get cold feet. If that wasn’t enough, the entire party then gets taken hostage.

Lopez and Hammer were headed for the film shoot in the Dominican Republic when salacious DM’s rumored to be attributed to  Hammer came to light on social media and derailed the films for now.  However, if Duhamel signs on to the film, they could can retain its start date in February

Hammer had responded to the allegations against him and the DM’s by sharing: “I’m not responding to these bullshit claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic,”

A Lionsgate spokesperson  also responded to Hammer and his exit sharing: “Given the imminent start date of Shotgun Wedding, Armie has requested to step away from the film, and we support him in his decision.”

The Hollywood Reporter first broke the casting news update.

So what do you think of Duhamel as Hammer’s replacement to play opposite JLO? Comment below.

Eva LaRue Reveals COVID-19 Diagnosis

During former All My Children, B&B and GH star, Jacob Young’s podcast, Real Conversations with Jacob Young, he welcomed his good friend and former Pine Valley cast mate, Eva LaRue (Ex-Maria, AMC, and Celeste, Y&R).

At the very top of the episode, LaRue revealed she and her daughter Kaya tested positive for Covid-19.  She shared, “We thought we had dodged a bullet, but sure enough, on New Year’s Eve, we both tested positive.”

“Oddly enough,” she goes on to say, “I really feel like we’ve been so sick of being scared to death of the invisible monster underneath the bed all last year, always looking over our shoulders.”  Eva added, “Nobody knows which one they are. Are they someone who’s going to survive it or succumb to it? Or have residual effects? All we can do is pray for the best.”

 

However, LaRue has been trying alternative methods of helping her with Covid-19 via IV treatments.  “I’ve got this amazing integrative doctor who I’ve been working with for a long time, and I know a lot of people are like, ‘No, we only do Western medicine,’ and that’s fine, I love Western medicine… but integrated medicine and Western medicine have to go hand in hand, in my opinion. Because, I just feel like, we need to open our minds to what is new and what is out there.”   So because of that, Eva has chosen to receive these treatments to hopefully starve off any long term effects of Covid.

In addition, Eva told Young she has hopes for the new primetime All My Children reboot that is in the works:  “I have my fingers crossed that they’ll be doing something with this new Pine Valley show.”   Remember, the Santos family and the Kanes are said to be the epicenter of the revival, so perhaps LaRue will be a guest-star on it, since she is also close friends with two of the EP’s, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC)!

Send your well-wishes to Eva and her daughter, Kaya and let us know would you love to see LaRue on the ‘Pine Valley’ primetime reboot?  Comment below.
