Hoover exec Kirkendall elaborates on why he is pulling Ads off ABC!

Soap Opera Digest has a statement from Brian Kirkendall, Vice President of Marketing at Hoover, explaining why he pulled Hoover advertising from ABC once All My Children and One Life to Live were canceled.

Kirkendall stated on the Ad pull-out which starts on April 22nd, “I thought the stand we took was the right stand to respect what our consumers told us and to pull us out of the shows because that’s what they wanted. So that’s what I did. The response that we’ve gotten via email and calls and Facebook has been unbelievable. The soap fans are such a loyal group. I was just responding to what our consumers said and what the soap fans told us.” As of Tuesday evening, April 19, there have been 4,703 emails to the SaveTheSoaps@Hoover.com.

In additional news, Hoover supports the national charity. Cleaning for a Reason that cleans the homes of women undergoing cancer treatment for free. It just so happens to be Cleaning For A Reason Week, so Hoover has been encouraging people to post the charity logo on their Twitter profile, and donating $2 to the charity, up to $25,000, for each download. “So far, more than 250 people have donated, so all this buzz around the soaps is actually helping our charity partner, too,” says a spokesperson for Hoover.

I am deeply saddened by the cancellation of OLTL I’ve been a fan since the late sixties when it started. I visited the studio in the fall and was impressed by all that I saw and the people I met. To think we need more shows like the type you are planning is ludicrous! I hope you reconsider this mistake. You will be losing a ton of viewers, myself included. My tv now goes on at ABC that will certainly be changed.

Hoover thank you for your support. It means alot to this loyal soap fan. My family has used your vacuums for the last 20 years. Were on our second one. The vacuum is so much lighter then others out there. Ive had three back surgeries so your vacuum helps me in my cleaning instead of hurting my back. Also I have three of your air cleaners. Love them for my allergies.

All My Children and ‘The Bay’ Star Eric Nelsen in the Cast of ‘Yellowstone’ Prequel ‘1883’

On Thursday, the full cast was announced for the highly-anticipated Yellowstone prequel that will bow on Paramount+ beginning on December 19th.

The Taylor Sheridan drama tells the tale of the Dutton family as they embark on a journey west through the Great Plains toward the last bastion of untamed America. It is a stark retelling of Western expansion, and an intense study of one family fleeing poverty to seek a better future in America’s promised land — Montana.

According to Deadline, in the cast is none other than The Bay’s Daytime Emmy-winner, Eric Nelsen (Daniel Garrett), who was also part of the cast of Prospect Park’s reboot of All My Children as AJ Chandler.

In 1883, look for Nelsen to take on the role of Ennis, a young, handsome cowboy who agrees to help escort a group of inexperienced men, women and children north to find a home.

The series also stars: Billy Bob Thornton, Faith Hill, Gratiela Brancusi, Sam Elliott, Stephanie Nur, and Tim McGraw to name but a few.

So, will you be checking out Eric in 1883? Comment below.

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
