MORE AMC: What Happened After The Cameras Stopped Rolling After Pete & Colby's "Computer Lesson"?



On this weeks edition of MORE AMC, the executive producer of All My Children, Ginger Smith spoke with the Friday series about the decision to push the envelope in the now infamous sex scene between Pete Corlandt (Rob Scott Wilson) and Colby Chandler (Brooke Newton) in which Colby asks Pete to teach her about computer’s while they are in bed together after a romp.

Next think you know, Pete is being given oral sex from Colby, and in first for soaps, we see the moment from the man’s perspective.  Ginger reveals that the series intentionally left a lot to the imagine!

Later in the MORE Show, Vincent Irizarry (David) who was interviewed for a segment, praises Rob Scott Wilson, who he says really “sold” the moment to the cameras.  But what happened when they yelled “Cut!”?  Well, to see the exclusive moment and footage check out the MORE Show, but to suffice to say, you will see Rob Scott Wilson’s reaction after his on-screen performance of the “computer lesson”.

Watch this week’s MORE AMC episode after the jump! Let us know what you thought of the scene, and Rob’s reaction afterwards! And now that Colby has slept with both David and Pete, what do you think will happen next for the vixen? Weigh-in below!

Im an old geezer(53) who isnt offended being old fashion…i cant help being a classy guy with morals…i was born that way. Well, i got to go…’Leave It To Beaver’ is on and its the episode where Ward talks to Beaver about the ‘birds and the bees’, then later Beaver learns his mother June got stung by a bee and tells his brother Wally that he thinks their mother is pregnant. lol

OOPS! that was from the 1950s when you couldnt say pregant…i should have said expecting…sorry about that.

I am a faithful viewer since returning and honestly the cursing and the sexual scene did not bother me at all. All I said was WOW!! I guess a lot are old school but times have changed.

Thats what we teach our young today…just hop in the bed with whoever you want…no love, no romance, no worry about sexually transmitted diseases or aids…times have changed-for the worse!!!

OUCH! I wouldnt want to be an actor doing that kind of scene and hear some director yell ‘CUT’!…it would give me nightmares of John and Lorena Bobbit!!! lol

Pete and Colby’s BJ scene broke through TO the way of 21st century soaps, it will go down in soap history !! AWESOME!!

Most all loved the openness of the reality that PP’s writers are giving us!!

PP is bring it home!!!!

and I’m telling PP …… BRING IT ON!!!

Too much openess in my opinion.. I wouldn’t let my teens watch that. It sends out the wrong message to our young people. Which is to follow the crowd and that it ok and everyone is doin it. You don’t have to follow the crowd to be cool!

Same here Susan…my families dont take their teens to r rated movies so theyr not going to watch r rated soaps together. if the tone it down just a tad to a more acceptable pg13 maybe they would watch together…some people 4get thats how soaps got more people to watch…people with their children…these types of shows need the next generation to continue into the future.

This will go down in history as a big mistake by PP. Why don’t you just watch porn? I don’t understand why you feel it is necessary to have those kind of scenes in our soaps. I wish PP would focus on good storylines and stop trying to “shock” the world. The most popular soap right now is Downton Abbey. Lots of story, few sex scenes which are tastefully done. Oh yea, PP just wants to attract the young immature high advertising dollar demographic. Quality has nothing to do with it.

I loved the Pete/Colby sex scene. It was sexy and just edgy enough. Some people say it was porn but they are being overdramatic. There is a difference between a scene being racy and being pornographic. A lot of soap fans are out of touch. The writers and actors should push the envolope and have more freedom to be bold with storytelling if they want even if they do ruffle some feathers.

I can agree that they should tackle certain storylines but a b.j. moment and showing the mans or womans reaction afterwards isnt a storyline and does absolutely nothing for the plot. Had Celia walked in maybe…but it isnt going to captivate more fans and make them tune in tomorrow. For me it was just a filler moment and all it did was drag things out.

I didn’t mind the scene but don’t like what they’ve done to Colby’s character. Also, I’m afraid scenes like this will keep parents from letting their kids watch. The problem is that we need those young ones to be the future generation watching.

I didn’t think the scene was necessary, sorry. We get that she is hot on the trail for Petey, it’s fairly obvious.
I also agree with Lin that I don’t understand what happened to the character of Colby. I thought she had matured and grown as a character, and now the writers have regressed her character to the town tramp – she used to have several layers to her personality and now she’s this vacuous self-absorbed young gal. Do the writers understand the past lives of these characters at ALL? It sure doesn’t seem like they do.

It also did not show anyone using birth control or concerned about “STD”s etc. I liked his after reaction that they showed us better than the scene. Did not particularly like the scene but the whole personality of Colby I don’t like.

The fact that I don’t care for profanity or simulated BJs on soaps does not make me “old fashioned” or a prude. I just think that certain things should be left to the viewer’s imagination. For me, soaps have always been about romance, mystery, intrigue and the complex relationships among family and friends. Stories told with class and elegance. And btw, if these shows are supposed to be so “current” and “realistic”, why isn’t the gay community being represented more prominently? So far, all I’ve seen is AMC’s Bianca. I think that that’s great, but from what I’ve heard, ER is only a recurring player, and in the interest of reality, there should be more of a gay presence in both Pine Valley and Llanview. PP should get their priorities in order.

Good comments…i feel the same way…to be ‘current’ and ‘realistic’ where are the Japanese American families or even an American Indian couples…not there at all plus to be ‘real’ there should be no more plotlines of people returning from the dead, sneaking in hospitals to switch paternity test(unless someone pays a dr. or nurse to do it…that could be possible) and characters who marry more than two or three times, especially those who keep remarring ex spousee…twice ok but more than that is just plain crazy. I dont mind any of that but im just saying if people want realism than stop the far fetched story plots. Soaps were meant to be fantasy and escapism…a time for us to escape the real world once or five times a week. If people want realism they shouldnt watch soaps, and just turn off the tv or laptop and go outside where the can get all the realism they want. i like using my imagination…it makes me see different outcomes any way i want and thats more fun.

ITA–Soap operas are not supposed to be about the real world. Another World use to begin with the saying ” we do not live in this world alone, but in thousand other worlds.” And when asked what that meant the creator of this soap said it represented the difference between ” the world of events we live in and the world of feelings and dreams we strive for.”
This lady knew soaps– it is about provoking emotion, letting us explore our feelings in fictional stories. We should laugh, cry, swoon and fume, and when the show is over we click off whatever device we are watching and go back to our real lives, feeling emotionally satisfied.
And for me that trouble with scenes like this one there is no emotion. I would like my emotions aroused not my genitals and that is why it is border line porn. But I could even over look graphic nature of it, if I actually was emotionally invested in these characters and their relationship- but soaps, not just this one, have forgotten about romance.
Romance allows us to get emotionally connected to the characters. Love scenes used to be about making love, now it is about hooking up. Soap writers treat us like we are children and we have to see what is going on to know, but the reason love stories used to work so well on soaps in the old days is they actually had them fall in love before sex and then when the sex came, they let us fill in the blank, which was ultimately a lot more emotionally satisfying and powerful that anything any writer or actor could show me. The world of fantasy.
And was the point of watching to have my emotions turned on by using my imagination to get sweep away — to live for hour in another world.

RIP — Another Word– fourteen years ago you were cancelled, but not forgotten.

Mary SF thanks 4 reply…i wish more people would see it that way…i so agree with you 100%. Having to see everything now (like we dont have brains to know whats happening) is just as bad as spoilers…it takes away the suspense and fun of using our imagination.

Yes you are all right, they need more diverse characters if they’re so interested in bringing the storylines into the 21st Century.

They need to do a story involving a Bisexual Eskimo.

Are there really bisexual eskimos, Johnny? Are there gay eskimos? i dont even recall any coming out of the closet…that sure would be a soap opera first…a bisexual eskimo…by the way do igloos even have closets?

I didn’t care for the scene between Pete and Colby. That story line didn’t impress me at all. Call me old fashion .. I hope that doesn’t happen again. Once was enough. Too explicit… Even if you didn’t see anything. It’s love in the afternoon not lust in the afternoon.

I agree…whatever happened to good old fashion romance…i want to see Luke and Laura dance once again in that empty department store.

Before or after he raped her?

Jovin, i was talking about types of scenes id like to see…i prefer romance over sex scenes and especially NOT rape!

i wish it was me on my knees. having fun with pete. lol. that was a good scene. hopefully we see alot more soon. pete is hot. i want him now. i will pleasure him now. oh i cant. i have a boyfriend. oh well it was a thought. ok maybe threesome will work. lighten up people. we live in 2013. if you dont like it. simply do not watch.

Just dont forget there is STD’s and aids is still out there Lorenzo, even in 2013!!!
And if these soaps are going this far they need to teach its young crowd both sides of the story…not only there is pleasure but there are many RISKS as well!

I thought the scene was vividly exposing a wonderful and aspiring actor in Rob. As for Colby, she’s a bit too much for me to appreciate. However, AMC is pushing the evnvelope , as they say, which will help their ratings; just tone down the sex expressions Rob and leave us wanting more.

Sandy, no disrespect to you but times have changed. Yes it was a 1st for the soap world but we have to follow change and besides we are all adults. I think everyone is just blowing it out of proportion.

I think it’s important to remember that the key to longevity with soaps (as opposed to other popular dramas that fade away after 5-10 years of going strong when their audience “graduates” from them, including every primetime drama ever…) is that “we” traditionally have NOT “all” been adults. We’ve been kids as young as 9 or 10 not even understanding 100% of what we were seeing (because it wasn’t too graphic) sitting watching with parents, babysitters, older siblings, nanies, and grandparents and growing into passionate viewers ourselves, who later will help pass it down to their children. When a show is “not for children” (and BJs, kids saying profanity to their parents faces, and too much profanity in general are not things parents voluntarily sit down to watch with their kids, no matter how “real” it is) then it’s not multi-generational. And it’s the multi-generational, adults and older teens getting kids hooked at a young age, aspect of soaps that is why the most successful soaps are on for 40, 50, 60+ years at a time. I have no doubt that AMC can get buzz with scenes like this (or OLTL’s onscreen drug use) and get a lot of heat the way primetimes shows like NYPD BLUE and SCANDAL do (and both are great shows). But even the edgiest, best, “hottest” primetime shows in this situation fade away in 10 or so years whilst soaps carry on with a new group sharing with a new group. That’s what you miss when you make soaps more profane, more explicit, or more vulgar–they becomes shows that moms love, but wait to watch until after their kids have gone to bed, ESPECIALLY when they are Web shows and especially when they are only once a week, instead of being shows that Moms watch with their kids and bond over.

I agree somewhat, because I do remember when Y&R first came on the scene it was considered pretty racy in comparison to the more traditional soaps of the day, like Guiding Light. As Y&R became popular with the younger set, which I was at the time, late teens, others soaps started adopted its more racy topics.

However, Y&R was a brand new soap, it had no former fan base to adhere to, it could break convention at the time without too much fuss. If this scene had happened on a new web soap, not based on a what a former soap I don’t think it or even the swearing would have stirred the pot. But when you got a former fan base that wants to pass their beloved soap to their daughters and sons, it becomes hard to do when said soap is almost a completely different product

I know PP did a good thing but saving these soaps, but they have to decide which audience they want– the more traditional soap fan base, or be like Y&R in its day and capture a whole new group and bring them on board. I think they tried to pleased both groups with mixed results.

I am perfectly fine with the sex scenes. This is a new era for soaps and not the 1970’s. The real credit for selling the scenes goes to Colby. She plays sexy, smart, manipulative and fun extremely well, and not just the sex scenes. All her scenes are acted well. She is a huge reason I am watching the show. It helps that she is a babe too!!

The 1970s was the last great era for the soaps with the best storylines and writers such as Bill Bell, Harding Lemay, Henry Sleazar, and so many more. There were dozens of soaps and ratings were extremely high for most. And people had sex and cussed back then but it wasnt needed on the soaps…they had compelling character driven storylines to draw us in…they didnt have to show a sex scene or say ‘shit’ to attract an audience. The shows even felt more real…when characters were killed off most stayed dead, weddings were weddings with few interuptions and families dealt with family drama like alcholism, rebellious children, illnesses and death. Some tapes that still exsists prove how so much better the 1960s to 1970s was compared to any other decade of soaps from the 1950s to the present. Many like todays more explicit content…i dont mind if others like it but i dont…i dont need a sex lesson and i dont watch others in reallife do things that are supposed to be private moments in their homes so i dont feel it belongs on soaps…soap people are like family and i dont watch my family in there most private moments. Thats not being prudish…im just an adult with morals and good taste.

This isn’t daytime’s first onscreen foray with orgasms, I can recall a sex scene with Deacon and Brooke on the Bold and Beautiful several years ago and that definitely was racier!!! I thought my TV was going to burst into flames!!!!!!!!!

Hello everyone! Let me reiterate my comment. I am not saying I approve of the sex scenes that I see displayed on the return of our fav shows. I am only saying that we are adults and if it is too much for you do not watch. Yes TV is a bad influence but if you don’t like the new age stay in Stone Age. Lets jeep it real everyone is making a big deal out of a sex scene.

I’m sorry but when have SOAP’s been without gratuitous sex? There has always been lots sex in soaps. There have always been people having sex with random people on SOAP’s no love or commitment involved. And to be honest we didn’t see anything all we saw was Pete the rest was left up to the imagination so if you are shocked and or embarrassed blame your own dirty thoughts LOL!. What we saw or didn’t see is a lot less than we see quiet often on SOAP’s during a normal sex scene. It wasn’t the sex that bothered people it was the kind of sex they were having that made people uncomfortable.

can somebody tell me in what episode that scene ?

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos to Kick Off Season 36 of ‘Live’ with New Show Opening

The new season of morning talk shows begins this week, and one of them, Live with Kelly and Mark, is starting things off with a new show open starring the hosts and married couple, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos, formerly of All My Children fame.

Make sure to circle Tuesday September 5th, when Kelly and Mark begin their first official season together as co-hosts of the long-running show now in its 36th season.  As many know, Consuelos joined the show back in April of this year, after Ryan Seacrest made the decision to depart the series and move back to Los Angeles full-time, since the talker is shot in New York City.

In the concept of the new opening, the husband and wife duo are seen brushing their teeth in their apartment, then going through a couple of outfit changes/looks, before they settle on what they wearing as they are driven to their New York City studio where ‘Live’ emanates from, and arrive in its corridors.

In addition, this season will have a new trivia game segment called Stump Mark.  In it, Mark will try his darnedest to keep the coveted Live mug away from trivia callers trying to stump him with their two statements — one true, one false.

Scheduled guests for the week: Derek Hough, Jake Gyllenhaal, Melissa Etheridge, Josh Gad, Shinedown, Phillip Phillips, Nikki and Brie Bella and more.

Take a look at the opening title sequence for Live with Kelly and Mark below, and then let us know what you thought of it in the comment section, and let us know if you are looking forward to the new season of the talk show.

Kelly Ripa Teases New Season of ‘Live’ with Husband Mark Consuelos: “Our Show Is Best When It’s Going Off the Rails”

Since Mark Consuelos joined his real-life wife, Kelly Ripa on the morning talk show Live with Kelly and Mark, the ratings have never been better.  In fact, according to the Nielsen ratings, the former All My Children stars came in second behind The View for the 2022-2023 television season in total viewers averaging 2.293 million.

Now with the new season upon us come September, Ripa spoke with the Purist about what fans can expect now that Mark is coming into his own as her co-host.

Kelly shared, “We’re going to provide the same sort of humor and irreverence that people have come to know and love. Mark has taken the trivia game, where Ryan (Seacrest) and I would just give away coffee mugs to the audience, and decided that he’s not going to do that any more. There are no participation trophies in life, he says. If they want to win a mug, they’re going to have to stump me. I don’t really follow the ratings, but from what I’ve been told that since Mark has taken over, people stay with the show all the way through because they want to see whether or not Mark gets stumped.”

When asked what favorite segment on Live is her current favorite, Ripa expressed, “I love talking to the trivia callers. Our show is best when it’s going off the rails, when our audience gets to see the slip-ups. It is not this highly polished, Hollywood thing. It is two people meeting, having coffee, having just read the paper. We never cover actual news, we cover absurd news. When you factor in a person calling from their cellphone in the parking lot of a grocery store, what have you, it is rife with the ability to derail very quickly, and I think that’s what I love the best. I also love our viewer feedback at the very end of the show, where we take our viewers.”

So, are you looking forward to more Live with Kelly and Mark? Enjoying the duo on-screen together on the morning talker? What are your favorite staple segments from the show? Comment below.
