I couldn’t care less about Cameron Mathison and why he is staying with Prospect Park AMC. I hate the character of Ryan Lavery, and I doubt I will watch AMC online with Ryan leading stories the way he led on ABC AMC!

I for one will be watching All My Children online, I started with them 41 years ago and will continue as long as I can keep on breathing. Cameron is a great guy and I happen to like his character Ryan very much. I just tired of all the negative talk out there. Let’s get on with some happy times. Thank you Cameron for staying on.

It was good to hear Cameron talk so positively about the new Prospect Park venture. I look forward to watching him, Lindsay and hopefully many others as they embark on this exciting new online venture. It’s still hard to believe that they replaced this great soap with the awful mess that is The Chew. After seeing how awful it was, I decided to eschew The Chew. Thanks for a great show!

Great podcast! Love Love Carolyn! I’m excited about OLTL continuing online, but AMC not so much.

Sorry Cameron, but Ryan sucks! I stopped watching AMC on ABC because of the none stop pimping of Ryan/Rylee. If Prospect Park AMC is going to continue the lame Ryan/Greenlee story. I will not watch AMC online!

Kelly Ripa Shares Her Grief and Remembrances of John Callahan on ‘Live with Kelly and Ryan’

There was always something special about the wonderful actors and the cast pictured here from ABC’s All My Children.  After all, this is where Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) met her husband, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo) and where Eva LaRue (Ex-Maria) met her ex-husband John Callahan (Ex-Edmund).

Then, over this past weekend this family picture from Pine Valley was forever changed, when the soap world was rocked by the news that John Callahan passed away at only 66/

Heartbreaking remembrances poured in on social media …. and none more so than from Eva LaRue, who also shares a daughter with John, named Kaya.  Eva and Kaya rushed to John’s bedside where he has been put on life-support following a reported massive stroke.

Now on Monday’s episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan, which is being done remotely from the hosts individual hosts due to the coronavirus pandemic, Kelly Ripa shared her grief over the loss of her dear friend John Callahan with Ryan.

Kelly said “I had a really a bad weekend this weekend.  A very dear friend of mine for many, many years, almost 30 years, passed away over the weekend. He was a great actor, a really good friend. One of the funniest people I’ve ever met. He was the ex-husband of my first-born son’s godmother, Eva LaRue. His name was John Callahan. He was 66 years old—way too young to be taken from us.”

Ripa went on to to tell her co-host: “A gentleman of, I mean, Ryan, you two would have loved each other. He would say the funniest things and we were all going through our brains about all of the funny, like the funny ‘Callahan-isms’ over the years. He was just one of these guys and you know and he just died way too soon. His daughter and my daughter are good friends, they’re the same age and I just want everyone to know, Eva and Kaya, that we are thinking of you and we are just so sad and so devastated. So, I apologize in advance if I seem out of it. I really actually am, I’m terribly out of it. You know, forgive me for it.”
