According to reports, one of All My Children’s favorite baddies,  Billy Clyde Tuggle, is returning to Pine Valley! That means that actor Matthew Cowles is resurrecting his oh-so-infamous role on the revival of the series when he debuts on May 16th!

The back-story: Billy Clyde was was presumed dead in a 1990 following a bridge confrontation with Tad (Michael E. Knight)!  According to Soap Opera Digest, “A show rep, relates that the super-villain now runs an escort service and will be involved in Angie and Jesse’s quest to find her missing daughter, Cassandra. Expect Billy Clyde to also interact with Dixie, who had been the unwilling object of his deranged affection.”  Oh-oh! This sounds pretty juicy is you ask us, with lots of story potential and fall-out!

Matthew Cowles was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award in the Supporting Actor category for his work on All My Children in 1981, and he is married to actress Christine Baranski!

What do you think about the return of Billy Clyde Tuggle and how it figures into the current storyline? We are excited about it, are you? Let us know!

Totally agree, but have to admit when I watched him during his meanest heydays in the late 70 when I was a little kid he scared the living daylights out of me. I wonder sometimes what was my mom thinking letting me watch his scenes where he was threatening to kill/beat on Estelle!

He’s still alive?
Man, they’re really reaching for it aren’t they.
Maybe they’ll bring Donna back as an aging prostitute?

This is brilliant if you ask me! He should have been brought back long ago! These new producers and writers are fans of the show so it makes sense that they would do something like this.

The bridge where they filmed was at Bill Cosby’s house in Shelburne Falls MA. That is a few miles from me. I wish I had taken the day off from work! Michael Knight was at one of the local bars. My friend saw him but I didn’t. Tad was so good looking then.
This is so exciting and I bet Michael Knight will be back soon, too!

Guess I will watch for a while .At least till Dixie eats the show Can’t stand the actress and character. Now Billy Clyde was a nice or not so nice change for soap characters. He certainly made me laugh. I watched the first week ,and surprise I did like the show. Hadn’t watched for years when they made Babe and Bianca best friend when they kept Miranda from her and they made JR the bad guy. Turned it off,.

Well Johnny, you just said a mouthful! They are really reaching for it indeed. This is positively the most vile, horrid looking person on the planet to have to look at. I cannot come up with enough bad things to say about this man and his character of Billy Clyde. My jaw dropped when I read they have pulled him in to this mess. But what really floored me about this guy is that he is, in real life, married to one of my absolute favorite actresses, a gorgeous, multi-talented lady all rolled up into a gem of an actress. And when I found that out some years ago, I think I fell off the sofa. What she ever (and apparently still does) sees and saw in him in the first place is one of life’s great mysteries for me. Talk about Yin and Yang. He’s not even qualified for yin or yang. Proves the old saying, ‘there’s no accounting for taste’. His wiki is pretty slim and I suspect there is good reason why. But, as I said.
Now for Michael Nader. When Oprah did a show on Erica’s ex’s, he was on it. When he smiled, he had teeth missing. Now, to add to that, he is bald and wrinkled. Pretty picture that conjurs up, huh? Brother, this is going to be one lovely cast. Goodby to the days of saying that people watched soaps to escape to the world of “pretty people” to get away from everyday life. Welcome, soon it will really be everyday life!!!

Kelly Ripa Reveals How Her Son Chose NYU Due To The Consuelos Connection To Former Soap EP/ Director, Chris Goutman

Last week on an episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan, the former star of All My Children, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) told Ryan Seacrest how a chance meeting when her son, Michael was deciding where to go to college; between her, Michael, and Chris Goutman (Ex-Executive Producer As the World Turns and former director, All My Children) changed the course of Michael’s creative and academic path.

Turns out that Goutman is now working over at NYU’s Tisch School for the Arts as an assistant professor and academic director.

During their banter on the talk show, Kelly revealed that Goutman directed the screen-test that landed Mark Consuelos the role of Mateo on All My Children, and thus how Ripa met her real-live enduring lovematch.

Ripa explained that Michael was waiting for a sign as to which college to go to as he liked most of the places he saw.  Then came the sign as Ripa explained to Seacrest: “We’re walking down the hallway and I hear a voice I know say, ‘Consuelos!’ “He turns around and I see Chris Goutman, who was our director at All My Children … I worked with him for 11 years.”

Ripa says Chris then expressed to Michael: “You have to come here, because I am the reason you literally exist.”

Ripa is reportedly also working on a film for the class, as well.  Watch what Kelly shared below.
