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!

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.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.
