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.… Read more »

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.
