Edge of Night and All My Children favorite, Larkin Malloy is the next big name soap star to join the cast of Tainted Dreams in the role of “Henry Steinman,” a director of “Painted Dreams,” (Tainted Dreams’ soap within the soap.)

According to executive producer, Sonia Blangiardo, “‘Henry Steinman’ is the most politically incorrect director in the history of Daytime…truly the ‘Archie Bunker’ of the soap genre. Whatever crosses ‘Henry’s’ mind comes out of his mouth…in the most inappropriate way possible,” and Blangiardo grins, “Before you ask, yes, Larkin and I may have known a real-life director who might allegedly fit this description.”

Tainted Dreams follows senior producer of the show “Painted Dreams,” Angelica (Alicia Minshew, All My Children) as she navigates the craziness of running a daily soap opera. Blangiardo promises, “Tainted Dreams proves the drama behind the drama is the real drama.”

Malloy joins what Blangiardo has begun to refer to as her “Dream team” which includes Alicia Minshew (All My Children), Terri Ivens (All My Children), Grant Aleksander (Guiding Light), Kelley Menighan Hensley (As the World Turns), Walt Willey (All My Children), Natalia Livingston (General Hospital), Marnie Schulenburg (As the World Turns), Michael Lowry (All My Children), Austin Peck (Days of our Lives), Colleen Zenk (As the World Turns), Dina Manzo (Dina’s Party and Real Housewives of New Jersey), Anthony Wilkinson (My Big Gay Italian Wedding and the new My Big Gay Italian Funeral), Lisa Marie Varon (IMPACT WRESTLING) and “Mr. PEC-Tacular” Jessie Godderz (IMPACT WRESTLING and Big Brother).   The series is set to begin filming in and around New York City on July 29th.

Malloy, who is one of NYC’s most successful and sought after acting teachers and private coaches, has played a variety of soap roles including:  “Dr. Weston,” As the World Turns (2002); “Travis Montgomery,” All My Children (1987-1992, 1997, 1998, 2001); “Clay Alden,” Loving (1992); “Kyle Sampson,” Guiding Light (1984-1987); Search for Tomorrow (appeared in final episode); and the dual roles of “Schuyler Whitney” and “Jefferson Brown,” The Edge of Night (1980-1984).

So what do you think about Larkin Malloy as the latest addition to Tainted Dreams? Did you love him on Edge of Night and All My Children? Do you think he will be perfect for his new part of “Henry Steinman”?  Share your thoughts!

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
