Jill Larson (Opal Gardner), who throughout the online revival of All My Children  has been a wonderful participant in social media to get the word out, and connect with enduring fans of the iconic soap, came forward today on her facebook page with a message confirming the show is not returning, but also that she got a call saying it was not moving forward “at this time” with a a slight crack left in the door to keep it open!  Larson also addresses why she feels Prospect Park chose to remain mum about the situation!

Larson posted: “Greetings all, well I finally got the official call, saying PP is not going forward with AMC “at this time”, left the door open a crack, hmmm! As disappointing as that news is, it was not a surprise. Just as they did the first time, PP chose to remain silent regarding their activities, and now that I’ve had some experience with them, I do believe that it was because Jeff just kept on beating the bushes trying to raise the money, never willing to cry uncle. I am sad for all of us, from Jeff to all of you, but gosh I’m grateful for the chance we had to make something new and wonderful from our beloved shows. Maybe when more fans are computer-savvy, and go online for content as a regular habit, investors will feel comfortable putting money into what was a grand experiment, perhaps ahead of its time, and only time will tell. Take care of yourselves, my lovelies, sending love to you all! Jill Larson.”

What do you think about what Jill was told by Prospect Park?   And, what do you think about Jill’s heartfelt statement?  Comment below!

She hit the nail right on the head with her mark about people still not being computer savvy. And that’s the problem: People THOUGHT they had to watch these shows on their computers. When all they had to do was go to Wal Mart and buy a Roku. Bring it home, install it and watch their soaps on their TV whenever they wanted. So many folks were complaining that they wanted to watch the shows on their TVs but they were too lazy to go that extra mile and purchase the good ol’ Roku (which is beyond addictive beyond getting… Read more »

Thank you!! It’s nice to see computer literate people who understand the new wave of technology. Buy the Roku box and stream it to your TV, it looks the same and it was in HD so it looked very nice on my TV.

What exactly is a Roku?

It’s a little box that costs as low as $40 to $60. Hook it up to your TV and connect it through your PC using an ethernet cord and you can watch HuluPLUS content, NetFlix content and even YouTube videos on your TV. You are in charge of whatever you want to watch on your TV, whenever you want and for as how many times as you want. While most people are watching old soaps on YouTube on their tiny little computers, I am laying in bed watching them on YouTube on my TV. You use the remote control as… Read more »

I knew it was about the money…and they have found an investor…their lawsuit…lol. I watched online…Oltl wasnt well written and AMC was ok but neither of them was addictive enough to keep me a fan…i still would like to see them return…if possible!!!

They were at their best when they were on the t.v. I would like to see them return also if possible but maybe on another cable channel on the television this time..

Susan M…i agree with you…online viewing may be the future but for now these shows would be better on a cable channel…one that gets more viewers than OWN and shown in daytime afternoon like 3 or 4 and repeated in the evening…

My theory is that PP does not want to call either of the shows “cancelled” because it might somehow invalidate their crazy lawsuit.

Great point Matt! I don’t kno all the legal terms but there is definetly something to your point! I am glad that PP tried however. Th lawsuit by the way was a great way to mk headlines!

They could have spent all that time and effort on writing and acting lessons, but the whole exercise was to make the guys behind PP rich.

I didn’t watch much programming online UNTIL I started watching AMC and OLTL on Hulu Plus. Now, I watch programming there, on Amazon Prime and online through the actual networks on both my laptop and Kindle Fire HD. (note these are things I PAY for). So … thanks to PP I (at age 55) became more internet savvy. I truly hope something can be put together showcasing our favorite actors. I mused the idea of “PIneview” , a compilation of AMC and OLTL – after Debbie Morgan posted. “if only” . I do hope the actors find new work to… Read more »

That is true, not many fans know how to navigate the internet and huge numbers didn’t even know what HuLu was lol .. They know how to do e-mail and post lol (not all, but many have zero computer skills) I believe when this nasty lawsuit is over and hopefully PP comes out of it with more than enough money to bring our soaps back, they will.. Also, if they get 93 million I feel they will have the means to take the soaps to Cable TV (and still use internet, also) PP are NOT quitters and the soaps have… Read more »

I feel bad for the cast and the crew and for us fans. They gave us hope that we got our beloved show back, watched them from Phil and Tara days…Was thrilled that it was online and although it was changed a little. I still kept tuning in, and watching it..When they said that they were cutting back the shows. That worried me, but fine, it was still on, so I was willing to take whatever I could get, and then when they said it was done for the season. That seemed weird to me, because Soaps don’t take breaks..… Read more »

If you read the amended complaint, or any of the articles about the amended complaint, it’s pretty clear that Prospect Park doesn’t want out of the soap opera business. They want the license extended and they want the license fees to be cancelled, and they want alot of money to make up for all they claim ABC cost them, but it’s really to keep their operations going. So this comment from Jill Larson isn’t a surprise. Cady McClain also talked about how this version of AMC won’t be on anymore. I can’t guess as to whether they’re right or mostly… Read more »

I guess what I don’t understand, when they talk about the money, is why are there other shows like “Venice” and “The Bay” that star many soap vets running on the net and are successful? What is the difference between the shows? Is it the production model or what? Can someone help me understand why AMC and OLTL couldn’t have been based on the successful models out there?

Venice;
Each episode of Season is 6-10 minutes long,
while episodes from subsequent seasons run approximately 15 minutes
with only 12 episodes a season..
And requires a paid subscription.

PP was bring tv to the web, a whole different format etc ..

We do NOT know what the future holds for ALL MY CHILDREN. It may come back as a one hour a week show, It may come back as a half hour program, it may get picked up by another production company, we just don’t know. I’m deeply saddened, not to say that I thought the On-line versions of the show were the best but I think they showed promise overall and just needed to find their proper footing. Thank you to Jill Larson for her sincere comments and for hinting that there is every possibility that they can return. Cady… Read more »

Love Jill Larson. She was so cute as Opal. I am 61 and never watched anything online. PP got me watching online. I got Hulu Plus and love it. My husband got Netflicks. It is PP that got us online and we each have an iPad. So you can teach an old dog new tricks….just not quickly! I hope PP wins.

Never say never, but God knows this seems like the end now. I am tiring of all the hype and snipe. Remaining positive though! I am grateful for the second chance we got, and cherish my AMC memories from the long-running original incarnation. It is a series that had hallmarks of solid entertainment, good storytelling, and social awareness. The handling of its end is a sad note in its history as are the doubts and questions regarding any comebacks. Is there anyone cooler than Jill Larson?!?!!? As an amateur actor, I look to her as an example of grace, class,… Read more »

What do I think??? Well, I think Jill Larson was probably the very best of the best on AMC. She livened up every scene she was in, was totally believable (she really took me away and made me feel like I was standing right there in every scene she was in). She is a very classy lady and extremely articulate. I thought her comments were gracious and thoughtful. Typically, I do not watch network TV (and definitely NEVER ABC), and have no premium cable channels. But somehow, I do hope that my path crosses on TV with Ms. Larson in… Read more »

Yes, I second that emotion, Jill Larson as Opal is one of the characters I will absolutely miss the most – I could care less who plays Petey (no offense to the most recent actor) but Jill’s Opal to me is irreplaceable.

Hoping that Debbi Morgan shows up on GH as TJ’s no-account mother, but she’s just booked a cable show so she may be on to bigger and better things.

Selling Sunset and former soap star, Chrishell Star (Ex-AMC, DAYS, and Y&R) took home the fan voted Best Reality Star at the 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards: UNSCRIPTED that aired Sunday night.

During her acceptance speech, Stause expressed deep appreciated for the positive response she received after making her new romance with Australian singer/rapper G Flip public.

Following thanking those involved in Selling Sunset including her ex Jason Oppenheim, Stause shared: “I knew about this nomination before I had said anything about my sexuality. I’m not trying to get really deep with you guys, but the fact that this was voted on after means so much to me because I wasn’t sure how that was gonna go.”

Stause won the award over Chris Tamburello (The Challenge), Lindsay Hubbard (Summer House), Teresa Guidice (The Real Housewives of New Jersey) and Willow Pill (RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 14).

After her win, Chrishell tweeted:I. AM. SO. HONORED!!! Truly thank you to everyone that voted And thank you so much MTV & Netflix”

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.
