The one and only Michele Lee sat down with On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman, when Michael visited the set, and the home of the director and producer of the hit web series, Fumbling Thru The Pieces. 

In “Fumbling”, Michele Lee plays Eleanor, the mother to series star, Hillary B. Smith who plays Ellie.  And in season two, Eleanor reveals to her daughter that she is gay and brings with her to meet the family, her girlfriend, Janice, played by All My Children alum, Bobbie Eakes!  And from there, some very hilarious and poignant moments ensue.

During our chitchat with Michele, she spoke about playing a lesbian and being part of a web series for the first time in her career, and from there we talked about the best primetime soap of all-time Knots Landing.  We learned if Michele would consider reprising her role of Karen Mackenzie should a cable or network television channel decide to make a “Knots” reboot ala the highly successful Dallas reboot airing on TNT.  We think you will love Michele’s answer!

After the jump, watch Michele’s interview with Michael.  Then let us know if you would love to see a Knots Landing reboot? And, if you have seen Michele’s tour de force performance in Fumbling Thru The Pieces?  If not, you can watch the episodes of the series here.

I wish Knots Landing would come back. That would be magic. I miss the show.

yet a new gay role created by hollywood for an 80s actress highlights the utter disparity between hollywood’s availability and willingness to create lgbt roles and asian american roles. hollywood actors and actresses keep speaking against gay bullying. yet more than 51% of asian american students are bullied. asian americans are the most bullied group! shouldn’t hollywood be speaking abt the bullying towards asian americans if hollywood was really concerned w/ bullying? but what does hollywood do? they conveniently ignore this bec for hollywood the lives of asian american students are irrelevant to them and bec hollywood loves to ridicule and bully asian americans thru their degrading portrayals of them. cnn recently wrote an article that 3% of the american population identify as lgbtq. pew research shows that asian americans make up 3% of the american population and are growing at a greater rate than even hispanics. therefore there should be an equal amount of lgbt characters and asian american characters reflected by hollywood episodic medium. yet the portrayals are pathetic and lopsided to favor lgbt characters. hollywood obviously gives preference to lgbt characters. the few asian american characters are usually supporting and background while many gay characters are given storylines that are designed for lead characters. asian americans have higher education rates than whites and are accomplishing higher graduate degrees than whites. therefore shows that are set at the academe should prominently feature asian american characters but they don’t. the median income of asian americans are higher than whites and highest among all groups. therefore shows that are set at the professional level should feature more asian american characters but they don’t. hollywood’s casting practices highlight their racism against asians americans. the portrayals are worse. asian americans are seldom detailed characters. they are often stereotypes. the asian american female is a. dragon lady b. sexualized for majority white men c. passive. d. usually a background character. while the asian american male is a. asexual b. foreign and accented c. dorky d. martial arts expert. while lgbt roles are more fully fleshed and given respect. the film “the goods” had a group of white characters beat up an asian character as a comedic device. would hollywood ever portray a gay bashing as something as a source of laughs? of course not. that’s hollywood tolerance.

Michelle (Karen) still has it and so does all the other members of Knots Landing. If Dallas is coming back, cant Knotts Landing come back? That would be great.

oh, please bring back Knott’s Landing (hello CBS, are you listening?!) and yes, put it on a network station so I can watch it… all over again!

I have some old knott’s landing on VHS – it was some special and there was the last show too… but it’s just not enough!

WATCH: All My Children Reunion On Strahan & Sara

On Monday’s episode of ABC’s Strahan & Sara, the show welcomed several stars of the beloved All My Children for a reunion, of sorts. Joining hosts Michael Strahan and Sara Haines were Susan Lucci (Erica), Walt Willey (Jack), Cady McClain (Dixie), Jacob Young (JR) and Jill Larson (Opal).

While it was wonderful to see the stars from Pine Valley again, it was also a painful reminder that this network, ABC, canceled the show, and had put in its place – The Chew, and now Strahan & Sara – since canning the series.   In fact, as you will see on the clips below, many of the crew who work on this talk show were once the crew for All My Children.

During the segment, Susan Lucci was tested to see if she remembered all of Erica Kane’s wedded names.  Later, Walt Willey and Susan re-created the final scene of the ABC version of All My Children between Erica and Jack, where Jack walks out on her.  However, this time, they have Jack changing his mind and coming back to Erica and sealing their relationship with a kiss – a moment of closure that never happened (since the show moved to online via Prospect Park).

In addition, Cady McClain and Jacob Young re-created the infamous Dixie “dying from eating poison pancakes” scene, as JR watches his mother die, only this time she lives.

It’s always great to see these veteran performers, but Strahan & Sara is trying to capture the soap viewers to put eyeballs on their show by bringing in talent from the show that sadly and wrongly went off the air.

Watch the clips below from the All My Children reunion below.  Then, let us know what you thought of it via the comment section below.
