Next week, one of the most popular actress ever to appear on All My Children, Alicia Minshew finally makes an appearance  on the revival of the iconic soap as Kendall Hart Slater.

According to Access Hollywood.com, who earlier posted this first look photo of Kendall with her on-screen sister, Eden Riegel (Bianca), the gals will be discussing Kendall’s health issues.   “Bianca thinks Kendall should “reveal the truth,” according to The OnLine Network, “but fans will have to tune in for the July 8 episodes of All My Children to see what happens,” Access Hollywood reports.

Eden Riegel earlier this year shared her excitement at working with her on-screen sis again played by Minshew relating, “She is coming back for a cameo… and I got to work with her… which was just amazing. Staring into her big brown eyes everything came flooding back, like our old relationship and we shared so many intimate scenes together and also we’re very, very close friends so it was a lovely reunion between Bianca and Kendall!”

So AMC fans, what is wrong with Kendall? Are you excited to see Alicia again on the series? Let us know!

Im totally excited. It will seem like old times before abc made the worst network decision in the history of television.

Abc made the right decision. amc one life to live went down the tube. people lost intrest. time to have more talk shows and reality. times have changed now. cheaper to have reality shows and talk shows. abc will cancel general hospital some time next year. i know that for a fact. no romour here. its the truth. i have the inside scoop. one life to live really sucks online. it wont last. it will be cancelled yet again. amc will be a goner to.

Lisa. this is a forum for soap lovers. From your comments, you don’t seem to have much love for the genre. Why visit this site and spread negativity? If AMC and OLTL are goners, why would Oprah waste money picking them up? Oprah doesn”t waste time or her dough!

Lisa, where did you get your inside scoop? Friends with an ABC exec.?? I hope your wrong, about GH. It’s really the only reason I ever watch ABC. I’m sorry to disagree with you, but I don’t think times have really changed that much as far as TV. goes, I think ABC. made a mistake cancelling AMC.& OLTL. But I agree with you OLTL. is not that good right now, but I’ll bet it gets better. The only way ABC. would cancel GH. would be if the ratings went down, and it no longer made them money, and I don’t… Read more »

Your real name isnt Brian F. by chance? Well, whatever it is i dont believe you are a soap watcher or a soap fan…i think your on this message board to get true soap fans upset by your comments because if none of these soaps appeal to you,(your totally negative about all these soaps with not one positive word to say about one of them) you wouldnt be watching nor would you be on a soap site.

Geez people. It’s July 4, our nation’s birthday. Can’t we all just get along without the juvenile name-calling? Lisa did not insult anyone’s spouse, family, etc. For crying out loud, in the big picture these are just silly TV/internet shows. Many people like them, but many also don’t. Different strokes for different folks. That’s life. Deal with it. It’s a free country, this is a public board, and Lisa is perfectly entitled to her opinion. It’s fine to disagree with her, but she in no way deserves to be so rudely stepped on like this. Shame on all of you!… Read more »

Lisa, I agree 100%. GH is unwatchable and beyond awful right now. Not at all surprised that its ratings are tanking. If it continues like this much longer, I could definitely see ABC canceling it next year. It’s very sad what has happened to this once great soap, especially since it was terrific around the 50th anniversary. The show desperately needs a new head writer before its too late. Enough already with the OLTL 3 as new characters and bring back the vets! What a hot mess. It’s so bad that I can’t help but think that this is being… Read more »

I am very happy to see her back on and hoping she gets back together with Zach!!!!

Great to have her back! I was hoping there was more to the divorce story than we’ve seen. I can’t imagine that she’s back for one day to show us she’s sick and that’s the end of the story. Hopefully this means there’s more to come with her and Zach. Let’s see him clear his name soon and then get back to his wife and kids. More Alicia, please!

AMC and OLTL are doing great online, despite people tring to make us think otherwise. Oprah is not trying to help these shows! She’s cashing in on their popularity! With Agnes Nixon in charge of AMC, it is starting to resemble the soap,I was addicted,to,in college in the 90’s. OLTL needs a little work, but it’s still classic soap. I am a huge OLTL fan, but I am def in sport of AMC. Congrats in getting Kendall back!!!

Ash

Well, I think AMC is the stronger of the two they are missing some key links Erica Kane first and foremost and perhaps Tad. Without the linchpin Lucci AMC is kind of flat; it is kind of missing something – it isn`t complete but most are glad it is back.

I am so excited to see Kendall Hart Slater back on AMC. Zach needs his beloved Kendall, and so does the rebooted AMC because without her, the Kane’s are under represented and the show lacks fire. I hope this cameo is setting up a larger and romantic sl for Zach and Kendall, probably the most romantic and best loved super couple in AMC history.

I sort of figured, when I saw the Preview on the “More” Show, that it would only be for a Cameo appearance. It would be nice if some of these characters would come back, the show really REALLY needs them. Need to have Tad back as portrayed by Michael Knight, need to have Erica back as played by Susan Lucci. Some roles, infortunately, just can’t be re-cast so easily. I have been having a hard time accepting the new J.R. Chandler, but in fairness, it would be difficult for any actor to fill the role that Jacob Young added so… Read more »

It is great to see the amazing talented Alicia Minshew back as Kendall Hart Slater! I hope AMC is planning to get her back on the show on a regular basis very soon. Zach needs Kendall, and Kendall needs Zach. I would love to see them finally reunited as they are, for me, the best soap couple,

Regarding “Lisa,” it’s Brian Fons? Too funny. I bet he put in all the bad English so that one one would think of him. Only haters would say all those things, not a loyal fan. What a joke. It’s great to have Alicia (Kendall) back for as long as she can stay.

I stopped watching AMC because they wrote Kendall to be such an idiot and I couldn’t take it.. but the show sure does miss Kendall. It would be a MAJOR boon to get Kendall back, I truly believe she has it in her to carry the show like Lucci did the past 40 years like Viki carries OLTL. The Kendall-Ryan-Greenlee triumvirate always reminded me of the Eric-Adam-Brooke one that carried the show during the 80s at the height of it’s powers. Writing so great on AMC right now.. the show should try to do whatever they can to bring kendall-ryan-greenlee… Read more »

EXCELLENT points – my problem with both new inceptions are the lack of sets – Vicki is seen “having dinner” with Nora….at SHELTER. Really? Does it seem like these two more mature characters would be having dinner at a Dance Bar? Dorian Lord is seen about to have dinner….at SHELTER. Does it seem to any viewer who understands who and what Dorian is that she would be having dinner at SHELTER? The scenes around SHELTER don’t work. When we are in Pine Valley, we have a choice of Jane’s Coffee Shop for breakfast, lunch, an informal dinner, an impromtu business… Read more »

I’m looking forward to seeing Alicia as Kendall Slater again, if only as a cameo. I so miss Alicia’s portrayal of Kendall. Zach needs firey, take no prisoners Kendall back to help him with the bad guys. The one-note FBI agent is sure not doing it for me. Zach and Kendall are a team with their sons, Ian and Spike……Team Slater!!!. The show is just not the same without one of my favorite super couples. Whether fighting or loving these two are soulmates with droves of chemistry. The show also needs the Kane women back. They are a force to… Read more »

I know Alicia is looking for other opportunities; but Susan Lucci you would think would come crawling back – she loved the role, it made her famous and she is probably no too much in demand. Sure she has those little Cable shows – Deadly Affairs – probably not many have heard that and she has a bit part in Devious Maids but she is AMC – I hope she sees the light and returns. (Granted she steals the scenes in Devious Maids; so unErica).

I understand that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but it seems kind of rude to come to an AMC page and say, “who cares about all my children.” Obviously some of us do. I don’t watch OLTL, but I would never go to a OLTL page and complain about the show, and I would never want it to be cancelled. Thank goodness there are plenty of shows for people with varying tastes.

I just want to say that I don’t mean to sound ungreatful but a Cameo seems like a teaser. I will watch Alicia because she is Kendall but not sure why the short visit sounds like closure as to why she’s not on board. I was thrilled to see it posted on FB however feeling let down now.

The only two words I hate to see in connection with Alicia’s return to AMC are “cameo” and “episode”. I’d rather see more of her in multiple episodes, not just one. And to all soap lovers here, just ignore the trolls. There seem to be quite a few of them around and ignoring them will piss them off better than any response you could make.

Re: Kendall’s health…..I wonder if it has something to do with her heart issues? Her health has been in serious jeopardy, especially since she was injured in the twister while pregnant trying to save Bianca. It also took a hit the entire time she thought Zach dead. I wonder if the health issue is the real reason behind leaving Zach? Maybe in typical Kendall fashion, in her mind to protect him she gave him one reason to pushhim away so he wouldn’t know how ill she is. Does anyone know if Alicia (“Kendall”) may come back for more than just… Read more »

All My Children Alum Ben Jörgensen Reportedly Dead At 51

According to his former All My Children castmate, Brian Gaskill. there is sad news in the soap world today.  Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin on All My Children and Chris on As the World Turns passed away on Tuesday at the age of 51, apparently via suicide, although unconfirmed as to his cause of death.

Gaskill, who played Bobby Warner while in Pine Valley shared via his Instagram:  “Sad news to report. Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin Sheffield on All My Children has past away at 51 years old.  My understanding is it was suicide.  I have heard he suffered from Bipolar disorder but as I have not spoke to him in years I do not know all the details. I just want to remember the good times we had on the set of All My Children 24 years ago. He was a good guy and had the courage to play a gay teenager on tv back when it was nowhere near as common to have representation as it is today. He was part of an award winning storyline…but mostly we just had some good times back then…my condolences go out to his friends and family. Please everybody hang in there and reach out for help if you need it. ”

Since the time of Brian’s posting, friends, colleagues and fans have been posting tributes and condolences on the actor’s Facebook page.  You can view that here.

 

In this heartbreaking photo below from Steven Bergman, during his time on As the World Turns, Ben is pictured with the late Nathaniel Marston, as well as Jaime Nicole Dudney and Terri Conn.

On All My Children, Ben was part of the important social issue storyline brought into the ABC legacy soap opera by the iconic Agnes Nixon, who was always trying to move the needle forward in daytime, as the character of Kevin was a gay high school student facing bullying, ridicule and discrimination for his sexuality.

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

Photo: JPI

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.
