And to think we knew her when! On-Air On-Soaps fondly recalls our early interviews and time together with young acting upstart, Kelly Ripa.  Beginning in the early 90’s, the actress won viewers hearts for her portrayal of troubled teen Hayley Vaughan on All My Children. However, after she left the series in 2002, where she also met the love of her life and future husband, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos, AMC), Kelly moved on to even greater success as co-host of Live with Regis and Kelly, working alongside the legendary Regis Philbin.

Later, after Philbin retired from the series, Kelly kept it going strong with her new co-host, Michael Strahan and has now been a multiple Daytime Emmy winner for her work on Live with Kelly and Michael.  In addition, along the way, Ripa got the opportunity to do a sitcom, Hope & Faith, whole on the homefront raised three children: Lola, Michael, and Joaquin.

On Monday in Hollywood, Kelly received her star on the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame surrounded by her entire family and special guests:  Jimmy Kimmel, Joel McHale, Michael Strahan, and even Matt Bomer!  The actress/talk show host commented on the honor to the crowd in attendance at the ceremonies:  “It all began with All My Children. And All My Children is where I met the man that I’ve been married to for almost 20 years, the love of my life, the man who taught me how to be a person…and we have three of the most beautiful children that I am so proud of on the planet, Joaquin and Lola and Michael,” she gushed.

Kelly also talked about her professional journey: “You have to surround yourself with people that are better than you and that’s what I’ve managed to do in my career.”  She added, “I joined this incredible acting community in All My Children, and it was a brilliant ensemble cast.  Then I got to sit next to Regis Philbin, who taught me how to be a storyteller, and then, I got to work with Faith Ford and Ted McGinley, who taught me how to be funny and taught me about comic timing.”

And as expected kind-hearted and hardworking Kelly finally added:  “I am certain that there are so many more people who are deserving of this honor, but you will never find anyone who is more appreciative.”

I agree; I don’t care for her on “Live” and I can’t stand to watch the toothpaste commercials…just appears fake to me. I did like her on All My Children.

Cady McClain Remembers ‘All My Children’ On Its 50th Anniversary Sharing: “I Will Always Be Grateful For the Experience, and For The Lifelong Relationship With All The Fans”

The beloved All My Children first aired on January 5th, 1970 on ABC and ran on the network until it was canceled back in September of 2013.  The next year, the show received a short-lived reboot online via Prospect Park.

One of the actresses to appear in both the network and online version was Daytime Emmy winning actress Cady McClain, who became soap-famous for her role as Dixie Cooney Martin and together with Michael E. Knight, became one of soaps all-time popular duos as Tad and Dixie.

While so many miss All My Children every single day and the indelible characters created by the late, great Agnes Nixon, McClain took to her Instagram on Sunday to relate what the soap opera meant to her in her life.

Here is what Cady shared along with a cover of Soap Opera Digest featuring Michael Knight and herself as Tad and Dixie: “Today I am celebrating the 50th Anniversary of “All My Children”! I started on the show when I had just turned 19 in the fall of 1988. I worked as a contract player thru 1996. I was back in the fall of 1997 again under contract and worked through 2001. That’s roughly 13 years. Then I came back for a year in 2006, then for a couple months in 2012. Then I did the internet version for six weeks and then… the show was done.

For many years this show and the people on it were like family to me. The makeup artists as much mom’s as my own mom to me at times. And thanks to the work I was able to afford some art school and college as well. I saw many great shows (both American and International) that came to NYC, which opened my eyes to what performance could be. It allowed me to do a lot of Off-Broadway theater and roles in five Indie films while working my day job.

I was nominated three times and won my first Emmy. I made some lifelong friends like Michael E. Knight, James Patrick Stewart, Jill Larson, Penny Bergman, Julia Barr, Lonnie Quinn and many others both in front of and behind the scenes. And most importantly, I was able to take care of my wild but wonderful mother. ‘She who drove me nuts’ but impressed on me the importance of having art in ones life. Who read me poems and took me to museums. My child who died but who I so grateful to have known. Thank you ABC and all the producers and writers who supported me and my work. Because of your support my life was richer, broader, more interesting. I will always be grateful for the experience …. and for the lifelong relationship with all the fans! Massive shout out to the daytime fans who continue to support me in my projects. When I meet one of you on the street I am truly grateful for your time and that we got to share some really special moments together. . .”
