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 🙂 !!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.
