Guiding Light’s Robert Newman, All My Children’s Darnell Williams, One Life to Live’s Scott Evans ,  Kristen Alderson, Ilene Kristen, and David A. Gregory are some of the daytime faves tapped for roles in the series, which is said to be a half-hour drama.

Sounds commendable. The themes of this new show seem significantly more meaningful than typical daytime fare.

Gotta say, though, it was pretty hilarious the way in which her character, Angelica, was bumped off in Days of Our Lives.

I’d love to see Darnell Williams, Scott Evans, Kristen Alderson, Ilene Kristen and David A. Gregory again. The story sounds interesting. I hope the show will air on some non subscription venue. Unfortunately In today’s world, I realize that’s unlikely. Please keep us informed of the progress.

David Gregory being on the show is enough of a reason to stay away, unless Chandelier is making an appearance.

Lmfao!!! Ouch harsh!! We cannot blame him! He was a talented actor, but he was thrust front and centre, bare torso and all, by Frank and Ron who were salivating all over the control booth. He was an ill defined character (rapist and creep) who could not carry an hour long show based on his abs. It was unfair of them to do that to him. Some of the lines they had him spouting while lounging in only a bath towel would make the most seasoned actor cringe!! Im not saying he was thespian of the year, but I have… Read more »

So I just googled this show out of curiosity because I love the “soapy cast” that was listed here and was intrigued to see the name Omar Sharif Jr. Some might remember Omar Sharif from many movies including the wonderful, “Funny Girl” (which was banned in many Arab nations because Omar appeared with Barbra Streisand, who is Jewish. Omar is said to have fallen in love with her in reality while filming.) Anyway, interesting to note in this world of divided religions/factions, etc. that Sharif was a Melkite Catholic, related to the Greek Orthodox Church, converted to Islam to marry… Read more »

My favorite role was as Jennifer on Search For Tomorrow wayyyyyyyy back in the day and Knot’s Landing. Didn’t care for her stint on Days, except her comical death, poor Lucas.

Kelly Ripa’s First Book On the Way in 2022

Former All My Children star, now co-host of Live with Kelly and Ryan and a successful executive producer in her own right, Kelly Ripa, will add writer to her list of credits.

New this week is that Ripa is sharing a look at her real-life in a book, that will be released next spring in April of 2022.

According to the intel, the book entitled Live Wire will feature sharp, funny, and honest collection of real-life stories from Ripa, showing the many dimensions and crackling wit of the beloved daytime talk show host.

As soap fans know, Ripa has been married to Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) and the two share three children together.

The loglines for the release share: “In Live Wire, Kelly shows what really makes her tick. As a professional, as a wife, as a daughter and as a mother, she brings a hard-earned wisdom and an eye for the absurdity of life to every minute of every day. It is her relatability in all of these roles that has earned her fans worldwide and millions of followers on social media. Whether recounting how she and Mark really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment) Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.
Surprising, at times savage, a little shameless and always with humor… Live Wire shows Kelly as she really is offscreen—a very wise woman who has something to say.”

So intrigued to read Kelly’s book when it is released next year? Comment below.
