Now All My Children fans, if this doesn’t get your excited, nothing will!  This afternoon Hulu and The Online Network’s All My Children released a very touching video which offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the rebuilding of the iconic soap town of Pine Valley!

As documented in the video, All My Children executive producer, Ginger Smith had to work fast and furiously with the scenic design team to build the new Pine Valley for Prospect Park’s online reboot of the series.  But for AMC favorite Jill Larson (Opal Gardner), this was a milestone for her character, because Opal gets a house for the reborn AMC!  Larson related her excitement when she said,  “In soap operas, when you have your own house, it’s a big deal!”  As you will see, Cortlandt Manor, Angie and Jesse’s house, and more of the town is revealed, as preparations began a few months ago to have sets for the story of All My Children to continue!

The beloved series will make its online debut with all new sets, all new excitement, and all new drama on Monday April 29th and will air in HD (where available) and will stream online via the free Hulu (www.hulu.com) service and to millions of Hulu Plus subscribers watching on connected TVs, mobile phones, tables and PCs.

Now after the jump, watch “Opal Gets A House” and let us know what you thought! Pine Valley’s come to life, kids!

I really hope that Opal is put front and center more, this time around. I think Jill Larson is an incredible talent, and it will be nice to see her have a chance to really carry some stories and spread her wings a bit. I always thought that she was overlooked and put in the background too much, just to play sidekick for Erica. Now, it’s time for Opal to shine!!! Thanks for sharing this video. The sets look beautiful!

I couldnt get the video to work for me but i agree Opal needs her turn to shine for a change…Jill Larson is a favorite of mine whom i met years ago, and not to use her talent in her very own front burner storyline would be just as bad when ABC cancelled these shows!

I just remember how she pulled at your heart strings when they did the story about Palmer’s death. She gave such a touching performance. I know that Opal has always been the funny gal pal, but I really hope this go around, they give her a chance to really sink her teeth into a story, and give her some serious story lines.

hmm there are no Martians to build a house for ..
No Ruth and Joe, they have retired and Jake & Tad have not signed on..
Dixie is not actually a Martin, she will be put with JR and the Chandlers..

So, if a Martin does return to PV, whomever will get an apartment lol ..

The actor I can never remember his name who played Jake is now on a CBS show, I think Y&R but not positive….I liked him as Jake too, So hopefully they can just recast him and they can build a house for A Martin LMAO!

I know this may sound corny but you know those wii sims game where you create people and build a town? I kinda wish they make some based on these soap operas…all 6 of serials. I think it might be a good way to introduce and attract the next generation of viewers to the soap world. Hell, even i would play and im such an old geezer…but i still think young.

I think all this is great! The videos and interviews are great, much better than ABC ever did. Keep it up, I think the fans like to know what’s going on behind the scenes. I hope PP keeps doing this after the launch. The sets look better than what ABC did. However, I hate to be the first big complainer, but here it is. If Pine Valley and Llanview don’t look like the familiar places we have come to know and love it just won’t feel the same. Some will have to be different, but places like Llanfair and La… Read more »

Now that AMC is supposed to be ahead 5 years, does this also mean the shows been on for 45 years instead of 40? im joking lol

I think it looks great and I too hope that JILL LARSON as Opal gets a stronger storyline of her own, she is so lovable both as the character Opal and in real life as well. If the sets don’t look EXACTLY as the old ABC-TV sets, well hey that’s okay time has passed in Pine Valley and I’m sure Jesse and Angie have moved and so has Opal evidently – am very much looking forward to tuning it to the folks of Pine Valley ~

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.
