When All My Children premieres premiere April 29th on Hulu.com, fans will note the five year leap in story, plus will try to embrace the SORAS’d AMC kids of veteran characters who have sprouted to teenagers or young adults !  As Prospect Park has brought the shows back to life, it’s now up to the audience t take a leap of faith that this will all work out just fine for short and long term story trajectory!

“Our little ones are now teenagers in order to make them more dramatically viable,” Thorsten Kaye (Zach) told TV Guide in this exclusive.  “I mean, how interesting is a 7-year-old?”    One of the newbies is sexy Rob Scott Wilson who first was known to daytime audiences as the first Price Is Right male model, and who is now the new Pete Cortlandt, Opal’s son (Jill Larson), on AMC!

Thorsten Kaye also related the enormity of what Prospect Park has tackled to get this show and OLTL on its feet again, “It’s been terrific getting back to work but we’re definitely experiencing some growing pains. This is a huge undertaking. ABC did it for 40 years. For a company that’s new to soaps like Prospect Park, it’s a whole other ball game. We ask the fans to bear with us. It will take a bit of time to get it right but I do believe we can!”

So soapers, what do you think of the SORAS’d kids? Will you give them a chance?  Weigh-in!

We are use to seeing our soaps being done on TV by veteran producers of soaps..
PP will need time to ‘get it totally right; that is just commonsense ..
I really hope the chronic complainers will zip their big whining mouths, and give PP a chance..

Is it really ness assert to charge us $7.99 a month? That’s a bit costly for many of us, as we are on a fixed income. We were your moused devoted fans for many years. Too many people feel it’sout of wack and we won’t pay to see them shows.

I myself cant afford to pay much more…my internet bill recently went up and i have to find a different company in the next few months or ill be forced to drop it. And ill no longer be able to participate in these chats. This is why we 2day cant afford much and it hurts the economy…tv use to be free(well, it still is if u use an aerial ect.) and there is hardly anything you can get thats free that use to be free.

You don’t have to pay anything if you watch on regular Hulu. It is Hulu Plus that has a monthly charge. I will be watching on Hulu.

As a long time viewer of AMC & OLTL I personally think 7 yr olds are pretty interesting. I loved the kids that were on these shows when they went off and had looked forward to watching them “grow Up”. However, I do understand why PP did what they did and decided to age the kids to teens and young adults hoping it will expand the audience and bring in more young adults. Sex sells and hot young bodies do as well, especially in great story lines! Good Luck PP will be waiting and watching!! Excited

I will miss teh little girl who played Emma. She was terrific. It’s good to have some little kids. And teenagers are not of interest to everyone. When I was a teen there were some teen drama and teen supercouples. But I hope they don’t dominate the show now. The little girl, I think her nane was Danielle Parker was terrific.

I loved the Emma when they were still taping in NYC (Lucy Merriam) and hated they had to recast, but I understand because they moved the show across the country.
I was pleasantly surprised at the actress they found (Danielle Parker) to play Emma in CA and grew to love her just as much!

Yes I plan on giving them a chance. Heck I think I like them already from the photos. Nu-Pete is so handsome and Nu-Miranda looks so much like Eden R. so they did a great job casting. BTW, love the sneak peek photo of Opal and Pete!

How interesting is a 7 year old? Hate to be a 7 year old in Thorstens house but i know he only meant that 4 the show! Everyone watching has to give them a chance…they have no other choice if they want to really support the show. Im willing to give them the chance to work out all the kinks and i wont judge it too quickly. And, others, please lets not go on again about the 5 year jump. Been there, done that,…now lets move on like 5 years has passed!!!

Listen up everyone. I have been watching both these shows since day one. Now, I do love the vets but understand why they will focus at least part of the show on the youngsters. There is nothing new about doing this in soap opera land. As long as there are plenty of vets on the scene and some juicy stories for them, I’m in!! I will be watching and I will give them time to get it together if they need it. I am so grateful that AMC & OLTL are coming back that I will support them in any… Read more »

Very well said Liz and I agree with you. This is the last chance for these shows. I have been miserable without OLTL and my friend has been miserable without AMC. Now, I will watch both shows and am willing to do whatever it takes to support both shows. I hope people know that, between radio and television, The Guiding LIght had 72 years of broadcast history, 15 years on radio and 57 years on television. (No I am not that old.) There is no reason why AMC and OLTL cannot match and hopefully top that. These are excellent programs… Read more »

I watched GH when the character ROBIN was that age.. still watch her all grown with a child of her own. Some characters just get more beloved as time goes by. “HOW interesting is a 7 year old”…ask anyone who watches GH..Bobbie’s daughter BJ gave her life for another to live at that age.. they can be heart-breakers and life long loved.

As a lifetime fan of AMC, I was having difficulty accepting any change to AMC. I will say that I did enjoy the young children on the show. I also enjoyed Petey and Colby. I don’t have a problem with the aging of the children. My concern is the emphasis being played on sex. As an example, Angie is chief of staff at the hospital when David is not. To show Angie with a dress slit up to the top of her leg is just wrong. Young girls need role models. Every female and all the young people were looking… Read more »

Kathy, while I understand your concern, it is unfounded. Angie will not be wearing any dresses with slits up to her thigh at the hospital, or in general. Now if her and Jesse go to an event…then it makes perfect sense. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that. I work in an office with a strict dress code – but when I go out to a party I dress differently, sexier. The cast photo they put out was meant to be sexy – not a reflection of their characters. This way they can attract a new (younger) audience. I am… Read more »

Are you saying that Angie never dressed “sexy” on AMC? Cause I remember a few outfits she wore where her cleavage was right in your face. Just because Angie is a DR does not mean that she is not a woman that likes to dress sexy, obviously not at work, but I see no problem with it cause the women on AMC and OLTL have always dressed sexy…..And the men have always been Hot……gotta love soaps LOL

I am afraid AMC and OLTL are going to be taking a new twist to their programs. Showing more skin, being more sexually driven and more open with their use of nasty talk. Personally I hope this is wrong and our shows stick to their decent family oriented programming. When I saw that group picture of the castmates of OLTL and Vicortia Lord Bucannon sitting in her classy black sparkly dress with her legs crossed and a slit from her knee to her hip: I thought Victoria would never dress like that. I am not interested in a future of… Read more »

The shows are going slightly more sexy and may or may not use expletives but they both have Agnes Nixon as a consultant on set and if you trust no one else trust Agnes to not let the shows she created go to far with anything.

Actors who are children can be even more effective than hollywood’s typical models turned actors. Child actress quevenzhane wallis has no prior acting experience and she already has an academy award nomination. No experience necessary really for acting. While thorsten kaye’s other soap smash has tons of broadway and film and reality tv show veterans. Yet that musical soap is a low rated mess w/c had to be moved to saturdays bec of its dwindled audience share. Heck nbc is such a flop that Latino american channel Univision has higher total ratings. One of its telenovelas has higher ratings than… Read more »

I am happy to have these shows back and I’ll take them any way I can get them! There has always been characters and story lines that someone doesn’t like. You cannot please everyone all the time. But that doesn’t mean you stop watching, that doesn’t mean you don’t still love the show. If anything it shows how passionate we are about our TV families and love to discuss them. I look forward to seeing them through the ‘growing pains’ and watching this ‘younger” set grow and have the kids… 🙂 And a big THANK YOU to Prospect Park, the… Read more »

Just watched and cannot believe this whole thing. It is a disaster and I, for one, do not plan to watch. Hate the new demographic (it sucks in real life, so why watch it on my computer?). I feel pity for the great old stars of AMC – they are so very talented. So sad that they have to stoop to this to make money. How about the theater, where your true acting skills would shine. This just looks like another ridiculous, banal blabber fest from a lot of empty-headed young wanna bees who will probably never bees! Thorsten, David… Read more »

Well, if you “don’t plan to watch”, why are you here?

Don’t you believe in giving something a fair chance? They have some very talented actors on board and some excellent writers as well. I’m happy that ALL MY CHILDREN is back and Internet viewing and new viewing devices are the window to the future. Broadcast TV will eventually fade away as more and more people choose Internet Entertainment.

Well, Johnny, I am here because AMC was and still is my favorite program – with the original cast – and I continue to watch on SOAPNET. And what is currently on is taking place BEFORE the ridiculous Castillo family plot line appeared. What a relief! I like Michael Fairman and what he writes and so I am here, on his site, reading to stay current. I was as curious and thrilled as anyone else as to what was to become of AMC. But my choice was television – not the internet. I hate the net and am, unfortunately, at… Read more »

Hey listen Jas, I wasn’t pronouncing a Judgement on you in any way. If you don’t want to watch, that’s fine, don’t watch.
I understand that it’s not like the “old days” of ABC-TV’s “All My Children” but I think it is great that the shows are back, and the storylines could be great.
When you say “I don’t intend to watch” – before the shows have even aired – aren’t YOU passing judgement on something without (at least) giving it an honest try?
But still, that’s your decision and your choice –

Selling Sunset and former soap star, Chrishell Star (Ex-AMC, DAYS, and Y&R) took home the fan voted Best Reality Star at the 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards: UNSCRIPTED that aired Sunday night.

During her acceptance speech, Stause expressed deep appreciated for the positive response she received after making her new romance with Australian singer/rapper G Flip public.

Following thanking those involved in Selling Sunset including her ex Jason Oppenheim, Stause shared: “I knew about this nomination before I had said anything about my sexuality. I’m not trying to get really deep with you guys, but the fact that this was voted on after means so much to me because I wasn’t sure how that was gonna go.”

Stause won the award over Chris Tamburello (The Challenge), Lindsay Hubbard (Summer House), Teresa Guidice (The Real Housewives of New Jersey) and Willow Pill (RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 14).

After her win, Chrishell tweeted:I. AM. SO. HONORED!!! Truly thank you to everyone that voted And thank you so much MTV & Netflix”

Chrishell Stause and Singer G Flip Confirm Relationship

During the premiere of Friday night’s Selling Sunset reunion show on Netflix, there were several major moments, but one of them surprised many.

Former All My Children, Days of our Lives, and ‘Young and the Restless’ star, Chrishell Stause confirmed that she is in a relationship with Australian singer, G Flip.

Stause revealed that she is seeing the non-binary singer after the moderator, Tan France asked Chrishell if she was seeing anyone. The former soap star expressed: “I recently have been spending a lot of time with someone that’s very important to me. Their name is G Flip. They’re non-binary, so they go by they/them,” adding, “They are an extremely talented musician.”

Leave it to her soap background to play a part in the ultimate connection between Chrishell and G Flip. Stause explained: “It started because I was just going to be in their video. And it’s about this chaotic love story. I come from soaps, I love acting. And with the job that we have, I don’t always get to do it. At first of course I was like yes, let’s do that.”

G Flip’s latest single GAY 4 Me is out now and her new single is dropping on May 13th, GET ME OUTTA HERE.

Previously, Chrishell was dating her ‘Selling Sunset’ boss, Jason Oppenheim, who opined about the break-up of their relationship on the special. In a scene shown on the Netflix special, Oppenheim shared, “This is not the time of my life where I want to have a family.”  Months back, reports had surfaced that the couple had differences they could not overcome.  However, now Jason expressed that Stause was “the love of my life” and said he may regret forever the fact that he let her go.

Now back to present time.  According to PEOPLE.com, Stause is enjoying the company of G Flip, and the two were seen out and about at West Hollywood’s nightclub/bar, The Abbey, this past Thursday cozying up to one another.

In addition, it appears that Stause and G Flip are now living together in Chrishell’s Los Angeles home, which reportedly was purchased, in part, by her selling her wedding to her ex husband, This Is Us star, Justin Hartley.

Over the last 24 hours, Stause took to her Instagram story clad in a bikini, and showed us the renovation progress of a large closet at her home.  She closed the IG story withm “I’m gonna come out of it now,” to which several of her former DAYS castmates had fun with the ‘play on words’ response and shared some comments back to her.

So, what do you think of Chrishell entering into a relationship with G Flip? We wish them the best. Share your thoughts below.

Susan Lucci Shares on the Loss of Her Husband Helmut Huber: ‘The Love of My Life’ Followed by Outpouring of Support From Co-Stars & Colleagues

All My Children’s iconic Daytime Emmy-winning star, Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica Kane) suffered the most heartbreaking loss when her beloved husband of 53 years, Helmut Huber, passed away back last month on March 28th at the age of 84.

Since that time and during her grief, Susan and her family have remained silent and off of social media.  However, in a beautiful, yet simple, Instagram post over the Easter and Passover weekend, Susan posted a touching photo of her with Helmut with the caption “The love of my life.”  The photo captured the essence of Susan and Helmut’s one-of-a-kind relationship.

What followed was a tremendous outpouring of love and support for Susan from friends, former co-stars, daytime colleagues, and fans.  Below are just a few comments to Susan’s post:

Eva LaRue (Ex-Maria, AMC) shared: “The most beautiful love story, better than any TV show could write! I’m so, so sorry for your loss Susan. Sending you so much love and all my prayers for comfort in your heartache.”

Andy Cohen (Watch What Happens Live, Bravo) wrote: “So sorry for your loss. The two of you were love personified ”

Rosalyn Sanchez  (Ex-Carmen, Devious Maids) expressed: “Thinking of you Susan… so sorry for your loss. Sending you love and light.”

Laura Wright  (Carly, GH) related: “Big love and hugs Susan – I’m so sorry for your loss ❤️❤️”
