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.”

Kim Delaney on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “All They Have To Do Is Ask, and I’m There”

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.

TONIGHT: Kim Delaney Stars in Lifetime’s ‘The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’

Make sure to catch General Hospital and former All My Children and NYPD Blue star, Kim Delaney (Jackie, GH, Ex-Jenny, AMC) tonight on Saturday, February 20th when her highly-anticipated Lifetime movie debuts beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST which marks the cable network’s 400th original movie.

In The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, it tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island.

After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle, Hannibal) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long.

Delaney’s film, executive produced by Deborah Norville, is based off real life-events that transpired in the early 2010’s where the crimes were never solved.

In an interview with 98.1 WOGL Radio’s Glenn Kalina, Delaney shared: “There is hope in the film… but you also want an answer… what happened to all of these girls?  My character just was relentless trying to find her (daughter) or find answers where she was.  They found a bunch of other bodies, and what they learned was that they were all escorts… and then they learned there was a possible serial killer.”

Check out a promo for the movie below.
