The former Billy Abbott of The Young and the Restless, Burgess Jenkins left his role on-air on the top-rated soap opera back in November of 2015.   Jenkins was replaced by Jason Thompson, who debuted in January of 2016.

After Jenkins departed Y&R, it was later revealed that the main reason for his departure was to be closer to his wife Ashlee Jenkins, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in November of 2015.  The couple has been residing in North Carolina.

On Saturday, Jenkins posted a beautiful picture on his Twitter account of himself along with Ashlee, and a tweet that read: “6 mos ago w grace, faith, humor & unending strength she put the gloves on & fought. Today she’s cancer free #warrior”

Send your well-wishes to Ashlee and Burgess in the comment section below, and your thoughts on the the good news that he shared with all of his fans.

I am so happy to hear this news. Makes me happy when any one can beat this horrible disease. It does take a log of fight and determination to come out on top of it.
Wish you were coming back as Billy Abbott, the new Billy is not you.

So very happy for your wife. She is a brave woman who has been through so very much. I know this because my 29 yr old daughter has breast cancer and just had her 5th of 6 chemo treatments. People could never realize what your wife has experienced these past months, such as the many side effects, and the days after treatment.How great a guy you have been to stay by her side. Please know that you are missed on Y&R! Best wishes for the future to you and your lovely wife!

This is wonderful news. Now, I never thought I’d say this since I was heartbroken when Billy Miller left, but any chance Burgess could return and we can forget this new incarnation of Billy Abbott ever existed? Maybe he could bring a team of interior decorators with him and restore the Chancellor mansion at the same time. Oh, dare to dream.

All My Children

Mark Consuelos on the All My Children Primetime Reboot: “I Know They’re Going to Bring Back Some Fan Favorites”

On Friday, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) was a guest on the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, where he shared his excitement and some insight into the upcoming All My Children primetime reboot, Pine Valley, in development at ABC..

As previously reported, Mark and his wife Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) are two of the executive producers on the project.

Consuelos shared on the reboot:All My Children was such a big part of my life and my wife’s life. And you know, I met my wife there obviously, had kids, became a young man on that show, and we got the opportunity to reboot the primetime version and the idea was brought to us, and we’re so excited.  Of all the things that we’ve ever announced that we’re going to do, this is one of the biggest responses we’ve got from our fans. They’re so excited.  It’s a big piece of TV that’s been missing for such a long time, and we’re going to bring it back.”

When avid soap fan and The Talk co-host, Sheryl Underwood, posed a major question to Consuelos that has been on longtime All My Children fans minds, she got a solid response from him.

Sheryl was trying to get some tea on who might appear in the reboot, when she asked, “Is it going to be the Cortlandts and the Warners? Is it going to be everybody?” Consuelos then responded with: “I know they’re going to bring back some fan favorites, and it will take place in Pine Valley, and I’m really, really excited.”

You can watch a portion of Mark’s virtual visit on The Talk below.

Then let us know, which AMC characters do you want to see back and on the primetime series, Pine Valley?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

General Hospital

Lexi Ainsworth Teases Her Return to General Hospital

With her father Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) presumed dead (although viewers know he is very much alive with amnesia), it looks like Kristina is on her way back to Port Charles – which would be a welcome return to the role for Daytime Emmy winner Lexi Ainsworth.

Rumors began circulating on Inauguration day Wednesday, when Ainsworth shared a pic on her Instagram Story of her watching the ceremonies from a dressing room at Prospect Studios in Los Angeles, where GH is taped.

Later, after reports had surfaced on social media that Ainsworth might be returning to her signature role, the actress shared some of those on her Instagram Story as well, which was seen as her way of confirming she is back on the show.

Lexi has been recurring on General Hospital for the last several years, so there is no telling how long she will be on-screen this time.

While there has been no official confirmation from GH, chances are that if there is a funeral ahead for Sonny, Kristina of course would be there to mourn her father. Stay tuned.

So, excited that Lexi will be back on-air on GH? Comment below.
