If you caught Sunday night’s 95th annual Academy Awards, you saw former All My Children alums, Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo) and Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley) walk the Oscars red carpet along with Ryan Seacrest.

Clearly, the trio was on-hand to not only promote Monday morning’s Live with Kelly and Ryan’s Oscar post-show, but the upcoming hand-off when Seacrest steps away from the show, and Consuelos takes his spot as co-host of ‘Live’ alongside his wife.

During, ABC’s The Red Carpet Live: Countdown to Oscars 95, Seacrest expressed that his upcoming departure is “bittersweet.” While Consuelos revealed his first airdate in the co-hosting chair.

Mark shared: “I am so excited, I start the show on April 17, which is a Monday, and I could not be more honored and excited.”

However, Seacrest and Consuelos made it clear, that Ryan still has a few key weeks to go on ‘Live’ before his final exit.

So, are you looking forward to seeing Ryan leave ‘Live’ and Mark as his replacement? Do you think the husband and wife chemistry between Kelly and Mark will work long-term as co-hosts?  Comment below.

Zzzzzzz she’s getting past her sell-by date yet someone new and fresh

Don’t care

Cancel the show Disney. How is this show still on the air? It has been in constant decline since Regis left.

I don’t watch it and don’t care, but this does seem like the best fit. Mark has hosted with her before. He is pleasant and affable and they have proven chemistry.

The revolving door of male hosts was tireseome. Some say Kelly has wanted this all along, and good for her that she now has the clout to make it happen.

Say what you want about her … Love her, hate her, or indifferent … No one can say she hasnt done her job every day for the past 22 years with genuine gusto, enthusiasm, and professionalism.

She is not like nails on a liberal chalkboard as the cackling hens of “The View” are. I can’t even stomach that show!

She talks about her kids and her family as Kathie Lee did, but she doesnt sound as self-important as Kathie made her family sound. She is funny and self-deprecating.

She is obviously made to be a tv chatterbox. She is good at what she does … She loves what she does. She never phones it in. She is never involved in or embroiled in scandals or controversy. She steers clear of all that.

This way they can go to work together. She will know where he is … Lol … I have heard she is a bit jealous.

I think its a good move and I think any further co-host change will simply signal the end of the show.

Susan Lucci Reveals She Was Contacted to Gauge Interest in Becoming ‘The Golden Bachelorette’

All My Children icon and Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement honoree, Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane), apparently was being considered for the lead in the first-ever season of The Golden Bachelorette.

Making this all the more intriguing is Lucci admitted she really enjoyed The Golden Bachelor’s season and has become a fan and thus a part of ‘Bachelor Nation.’

Although former ‘Golden Bachelor’ contestant Joan Vassos was the ultimate pick by ABC and the producers of The Golden Bachelorette, Lucci told PEOPLE that the show reached out to her people.

Susan shared, “I believe that they contacted my publicist and it wasn’t for me.” She added, “I watched The Golden Bachelor, and I really enjoyed watching The Golden Bachelor. This is a new addiction for me.”

And a few years back. her assistant got Lucci hooked on The Bachelor, as she expressed on the dating series, “I was immediately engaged. I cared. I wanted to know more about these people.”

The outlet shared that they did reach out to ABC and Warner Bros. about potential interest in Susan. However, they did not respond. A source then told the publication that Lucci was not offered a role.

For Susan, finding a second chance at love is an interesting proposition; given that she had the most incredible and enduring 53-year marriage to her late husband and manager, Helmet Huber, who passed away at 84-years-old back in March of 2022.

So, what do you think of Susan being contacted to see if she was interested in becoming ABC’s ‘Golden Bachelorette’ for the senior dating-reality series? Comment below.

Mark Consuelos Celebrates One-Year Anniversary as Co-Host of ‘Live’ Alongside Kelly Ripa

Today, April 17th marks a full-year since Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo, All My Children) took over the co-hosting duties of ‘Live” alongside his wife, and longtime co-host, Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley, All My Children).

Consuelos replaced Ryan Seacrest who are six seasons decided to be back on the west coast full-time. For Consuelos, now having the opportunity to work off of Ripa as co-hosts has been something of adjustment for him, but viewers have been eating it up.

Live with Kelly and Mark has remained the No. 1 entertainment talk show on television over the past year, growing 3% in average total viewers to 2.23M per episode.  It is also the most-watched daytime talk show in the last year in key demos of women 18-49 and women 25-54. All of this, since the real-life marrieds teamed-up.

Speaking with Deadline, Kelly Ripa shared why the two are gelling on-screen, “I do think that there is something very possibly relatable about our relationship. We have disagreements like a normal couple, and we’re not afraid to let them unfold on the air and in front of America, and I think people find a lot of themselves in that.”

Mark weighed in how he has progressed as a host, and what he could improve at, sharing, “I’d like to get better at my interviewing skills. I’d like to get better at reading a teleprompter…I think I’m getting better at throwing to commercial. The other day in the middle of the show as we go to commercial, my sign off was ‘See you guys around.’ I mean, the show wasn’t over. The most obvious thing to say would be, ‘We’ll be back right after this.’ But I just said, ‘See you around.’ So we went to commercial and one of the producers (goes) ‘What was that?’ I don’t know… So for the next few sign offs, as a joke, I’d say ‘See you around.’ We got a kick out of it.”

Meanwhile, Kelly has given huge props to Mark, “I find Mark utterly compelling, really interesting, super funny, and he’s bold in a way like nobody else. He says what’s on his mind. If he’s thinking it, he says it.  I’ve done this a long time and oftentimes people will adjust their natural personalities to pander to what they think the audience wants to hear, and Mark will tell people what he thinks, and he doesn’t care if it’s not a popular opinion. It gives him an edginess that I think is really missing in the landscape today. Everybody’s so afraid to say anything, and Mark is unafraid to say exactly what he’s thinking.”

In a statement, Debra O’Connell, President News Group and Networks, Disney Entertainment shared, We could not be more thrilled with how Mark has seamlessly joined the show family as permanent co-host. His undeniable charisma and his and Kelly’s natural chemistry are evident as they deliver the laughs and smiles to our viewers each morning. We are incredibly proud of how Live has continued to evolve and that the audience is responding so enthusiastically.”

So, do you think Mark Consuelos is the best co-host his wife Kelly Ripa has ever had on ‘Live’? How would you say he is doing as co-host after one full year on the job? Comment below.
