Time to immobilize the troops! One thing we know is when soap fans rally they are often heard and sometimes can make quite an impact.  Everyone has been wondering what is the status of the All My Children primetime reboot, Pine Valley.

After getting word that the pilot and show were in development for ABC with AMC alums Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo) as two of the executive producers along with Andrew Stearn, Bob Nixon, and Leo Richardson, from a script by Richardson, so far the series has not gotten an official pick-up.

After being inundated by direct messages on Twitter and more, Richardson took to social media to update fans on where things are at with the return to Pine Valley-primetime style.

Leo shared: “Been getting a lot of DM’s on here and IG about #PineValley recently. No update YET… I wrote the script, true to what I pitched and sold to ABC, and we are waiting now. I am incredibly proud of what we have cooked up and we will keep you posted. Fingers crossed for us pls.”

The talented writer and showrunner who has also worked on EastEnders, Katy Keene and Star, followed that tweet up with call-to-action: “and if you want it, make some noise and let  @ABCNetwork and @ABCSignature  know!!”

So, are you still hoping that Pine Valley gets on the air? If so, let us know in the comment section below, and start tweeting and writing to ABC and ABC Signature!

The writers need to give us some insights about the storylines. We need classic AMC modernized for prime time. Any hints of poisoned pancakes, unabortions or a mad scientist doctor reviving people from the dead and the new show is dead in its tracks.

WABC, please stop disappointing All My Children loyal fans! We have been so looking forward to Pine Valley coming to the airwaves. I think we could do without the extra hour of GMA3 one day a week! It could be aired on Fridays!!! Please, please, please!

I would rather see Springfield and Bay City over Pine Valley! I wasn’t much of an AMC fan though.

I’m cautiously optimistic about this, but it concerns me that this writer hails from England and probably isn’t too familiar with the original show. Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos don’t seem like the best people to capture the spirit of All My Children, either. I’m really annoyed that this reboot is focused on the Kane and Santos families instead of the Martins and Chandlers. If the recent E! Reunion thrown by Eva LaRue is any indication, it won’t be very good.

Better AMC than big brother, survivor or the bachekor

Survivor is a far better show. It may not be your cup of tea but it has a huge fan base. Both Big Brother are on CBS which wouldn’t have anything to do with AMC anyway!

AMC will never be back- it is long dead.
Whatever they have in mind to rejuvenate it will fail.
It’s either AMC or an ongoing sequel, with the original actors/cast
and continued stories.
and that it can not be.
To all the AMC fans it will be a huge disappointment.
I doubt it will be picked up by any network
and if by a miracle it would be it would but one season/canceled.
it’s mainly in hopes of AMC fans to carry it onward that will be a fail.
🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 gotta be realistic 🙁

I agree. The original actors is what made it the great show it was then. Most of them are long gone and the great characters and stars that portrayed them at the end are gone or on other shows except for Susan Luci.Sorry, but can not see Mark and Kelly resurrecting this show. They just need to leave it as a good memory.

hi Violet–hope you’re doing well..
yes– it’s the actors that were loved not so much the soap..
the actors and their portrayal of their characters was the show
a revamp with a new cast and no continuation of their stories
will, without a doubt be a huge disappointment and failure..
It can not and will not be anything like their loved AMC–

Been a fan of AMC since it began in the 70’s. Even turned one of my late husbands into a fanatical fan. It seems like I’ve lost my dearest friends when it shut down.
Please do your reboot and stabilize my world.
Thank You.

Chrishell Stause and Singer G Flip Confirm Relationship

During the premiere of Friday night’s Selling Sunset reunion show on Netflix, there were several major moments, but one of them surprised many.

Former All My Children, Days of our Lives, and ‘Young and the Restless’ star, Chrishell Stause confirmed that she is in a relationship with Australian singer, G Flip.

Stause revealed that she is seeing the non-binary singer after the moderator, Tan France asked Chrishell if she was seeing anyone. The former soap star expressed: “I recently have been spending a lot of time with someone that’s very important to me. Their name is G Flip. They’re non-binary, so they go by they/them,” adding, “They are an extremely talented musician.”

Leave it to her soap background to play a part in the ultimate connection between Chrishell and G Flip. Stause explained: “It started because I was just going to be in their video. And it’s about this chaotic love story. I come from soaps, I love acting. And with the job that we have, I don’t always get to do it. At first of course I was like yes, let’s do that.”

G Flip’s latest single GAY 4 Me is out now and her new single is dropping on May 13th, GET ME OUTTA HERE.

Previously, Chrishell was dating her ‘Selling Sunset’ boss, Jason Oppenheim, who opined about the break-up of their relationship on the special. In a scene shown on the Netflix special, Oppenheim shared, “This is not the time of my life where I want to have a family.”  Months back, reports had surfaced that the couple had differences they could not overcome.  However, now Jason expressed that Stause was “the love of my life” and said he may regret forever the fact that he let her go.

Now back to present time.  According to PEOPLE.com, Stause is enjoying the company of G Flip, and the two were seen out and about at West Hollywood’s nightclub/bar, The Abbey, this past Thursday cozying up to one another.

In addition, it appears that Stause and G Flip are now living together in Chrishell’s Los Angeles home, which reportedly was purchased, in part, by her selling her wedding to her ex husband, This Is Us star, Justin Hartley.

Over the last 24 hours, Stause took to her Instagram story clad in a bikini, and showed us the renovation progress of a large closet at her home.  She closed the IG story withm “I’m gonna come out of it now,” to which several of her former DAYS castmates had fun with the ‘play on words’ response and shared some comments back to her.

So, what do you think of Chrishell entering into a relationship with G Flip? We wish them the best. Share your thoughts below.
