PLANET 360 Preview: Chappell, Gering & Serricchio Discuss Lucci's One Episode Return to AMC!

In this video preview of the next installment of the “Soap Dish” segment that airs tomorrow Friday at noon on the Hallmark MOVIE Channel’s entertainment series, Planet 360, Crystal Chappell (Venice, The INN, The Grove), Galen Gering (Days of our Lives) and Ignacio Serricchio (The Young and the Restless) discuss with each other the fact that when All My Children returns with new episodes and online at the end of April, they will be fast forwarding five years ahead in story.

In addition, the main topic of conversation between the soap stars was is if Susan Lucci’s  (Erica Kane) slated one appearance on All My Children will help the show or not, and should Lucci have agreed from the start to appear in more episodes?

Galen Gering stated on Lucci’s one episode return:  “I don’t think its going to help it.  Obviously, everyone is going to see if for what it is – she is doing one show.  You almost should just say, ‘No’.   For a show and an industry that has been so great to her for decades to do one show  … and obviously there is a lot of stuff that can happen behind the scenes, but if you are going to do one, you might as well do ten!  To do one show feels like kind of weird and a bit of a slap in the face to me, I don’t know. “

Crystal Chappell felt differently relating:  “I think it’s nice of Susan to do it, because she doesn’t have to.  She’s got other things and she had moved on.  I don’t think it’s going to hurt it, but it would be nice to have her there.  But,  they have enough familiar faces on the canvas, that people like and that are fan favorites that I think will be able to carry it.  Cook em with Susan Lucci in that first episode, and if there is something titillating in that first episode, than you might be able to keep the fans coming back.”

Now watch the Planet 360 “Soap Dish” segment below, and let us know your thoughts on Susan Lucci appearing thus far in only one episode of All My Children?

CAN AMC TAKE BACK ANNIE BECAUSE I HATE MCE ON Y&R AS CHELSEA. NEVER LIKED HER

David Jones

How can AMC take Annie back, when MCE doesn’t want to return? She wanted off the show before it was even canceled. Even if, Y&R dumped her, that doesn’t mean shes going back to AMC.

I can’t stand Chelsea either. I hope they get rid of this character. Put Chloe with Alex the cop and find someone new for kevin like Jana. Bring back Drucilla ! Sharon and Adam need to marry and have a son and get hild of full custody of that rosemarys baby Chelsea is carrying 🙂

Galen needs to stop speculating. No one knows how Lucci’s Devious Maids contract. Maybe her contract stipulates that she can’t accept other acting jobs.

I agree he does. What business is it of his anyway?

I just read that she and Jack Wagner are doing an episode of CELEBRITY APPRENTICE for a fake commercial for Crystal Light.

I think the woman is just busy as are a lot of them that were forced to move on when ABC pulled the rug out from under them.

Thank you! Susan wants to return with all her heart. The proof is in the pudding. No other actor was as continuously involved as she was. Devious Maids shoots in Atlanta. She can’t be in two shows at once if the producers don’t accommodate. Jacob Young asked about the possibility of doing B&B and AMC at the same time, and B&B wouldn’t share him. The important thing is that AMC and OLTL launch successfully. The missing actors will come back as soon as they can.

Galen Gering and Ignacio Serricchio are both idiots! Like they are such wonderful actors and have starred in a show…any show…EVER?
Crystal at least showed some thoughtful insight on how Susan, doing at least one show, could bring some viewers in. I’m sure that Ms. Lucci will do more shows as her schedule permits, but she has TWO other shows she’s doing. At least she found other employment when AMC was so royally dumped.

I think it is nice that she appear in the opening episode (or one of the first episodes), since Susan Lucci is an icon in the soap opera genre and on AMC, and has earned that status, but, in the last few years of AMC, IMO, she was so predictable, I fastforwarded through most of the scenes she was in, so I am okay with her not being there on a regular basis. I kind of feel bad saying that, but it is true. I appreciate her stopping by AMC – Part 2, and wish her well, but I like… Read more »

I agree with Galen. She wants to appear that she is trying. As usual with selfish Ms. Lucci, it is a money issue.

Galen would slap DOOL in a New York minute If he had the opportunities Susan has been offered to do over the years. There have been many times Susan couldve walked away from AMC and didnt. She stayed with the show for forty years so i dont see how that is a slap in the face. AMC wouldnt have asked her back if they felt that way. And i doubt Galen will last that long on his own show. Just because she agreed to one show doesnt mean she will or wont be back for more. I wish more stars… Read more »

Great post and if ppl had actually seen her on the View she said she wants to return she just can’t right now because of Devious Maids…..

I think Galen will last. The writers love him, and it seems like he and Sami will reunite someday in the not-too-distant-future. If Safe weren’t reuniting soon, there’d be no reason for him to stay on the soap. He would’ve been fired immediately.

I agree what Galen said about Ms. Lucci and only doing one episode.. Doesn’t she feel
any loyalty to AMC , who gave her start & which launched her career??? One episode you might as well do none. Maybe it’s a money issue! Ms. Lucci the one of the main
characters of AMC! I think she has gotten too big for her shoes!!!!!!!!!!

I agree with you Susan M, But I don’t care if Susan Lucci ever comes back to AMC she never was a favorite of mine, I didn’t tune in every day to Amc to see her, there are far more better actors then her that where the reason I watched 5 days a week for 40 some years.

I liked years ago when Trevor was on AMC. His character shouldn’t have been
killed off… I liked Tad’s(Gran)!!!! Dr. Joe Martin’s Mom. I liked Dixie , Tad, etc…
Ms. Lucci was too much of a glamor queen….

Joliefan Forever
Guest

Did you see the View she SAID she can not come back yet because of Devious Maids and the fact that they tape in Atlanta and AMC is in Conn what is she supposed to do live on a plane? It has nothing to do with money or loyalty…..

Ethel, She was nominated 19 times that is nothing to sneeze at! Her peers (Fellow actors) thought her work was worthy of notice 19 times that says something! Susan Lucci is an Icon and Deserving so, Susan Lucci has played Erica for all she is worth for the whole 40 years she has played her. If you think she did nothing in the last 15 years but Switch around which I am assuming that you mean that she got married a lot….SO That is Erica always looking for someone to love her even tho she feels that she is unlovable… Read more »

I liked Trevor to, I hated when Abc got rid of that family, Right down to their dog to, What was the dogs name again Harold??????? Anyway I am looking forward to seeing The soaps again, And you are right MS. Lucci was to much of a glamor queen, I don’t like characters like that. So as far as I am concerned she can never, Ever, show up in Pine Valley again and It won’t break my heart.

why does everyone feel like every actor has to commit right now to joining the shows? thats the part i don’t get, oltl and amc should concentrate on the people they got to join the show and so should the fans, and then later down the line they can bring other people in. Thats why i don’t get PP determination to have GH trio if they don’t want be on their show right now, maybe down the line when the show is airing and has a storyline that would bring them back, same for lucci. as for garens comment, its… Read more »

The only people that are joining is actors broad term here that have not done anything else growing vegetables in upstate Ny etc. Please get off Ms. Lucci’s back she put AMC on the map move on with your newbies that you picked up at a coffee house or underwear models. Erica has come and gone leave the actress alone and your hateful comments because she did not roll over and play dead. She moved on how many times does Erica get married, Michael Knight is not jumping thru hoops either but he seems to get a pass. Galen Gering… Read more »

Susan Lucci has already stated that she wants to come back…..so I think it’s just a matter of working out a schedule and a contract that is amicable. I think it would be nice to have her there, but I’m going to watch regardless. I was one of those people that was raising hell when ABC cancelled All My Children, so now that it’s coming back, I’m going to give it a chance and watch before I ridicule every decision, before the first episode even airs. We have to remember, ABC pulled the plug on AMC a year ago, so… Read more »

Omg, rafe needs to be quiet. How dare he say Susan is slapping AMC in the face. Her schedule is only allowing her to do one episode. It’s better than nothing. Erica fans will be happy. Can’t believe he said that. How disrespectful. He’s just jealous because his days character is so boring.

Your right about that Jeff, AMC doesn’t need her, And I don’t think she can act either, There are far more people I liked on AMC she was never my favorite, She could drop off the soap bubble truck forever and I will not miss her at all.

I’ve been watching since 1976. Susan Lucci MADE AMC. The disrespect in this comment section is sickening. I’m looking forward to the show’s return and am making no judgments. It’s a Miracle that its back. Long live La Lucci ! Her return for 1 or more episodes will be welcome. ##appreciatethediva!

I love Susan Lucci and AMC although I always wanted to see Erica Kane when I watched the show. I have watched Deadly Affairs on ID and not thrilled with it at all. I am sure as an actor one wants to be in primetime and take on new roles but for me I need me some Erica Kane on some kind of basis and hope that happens. She also knows she has to say she wants to make it work and so forth as she is very conscious of the wrath of soap fans.

Like Erica Kane or not and like Susan Lucci or not (I do think people confuse one is a character) Lucci has show great loyaltty to the soap genre and ABC/AMC. You can’t say that about Deidre Hall, Tony Geary, et al esepcailly when she has been given oportunituies to do work outside of daytime. AS for her acting, is she Meryl Streep I don’t thnk so but the character Erica Kane is so strong and so prominent it is hard to see her anything but Erica Kane. But the fact that she has had such a long career, done… Read more »

Selling Sunset and former soap star, Chrishell Star (Ex-AMC, DAYS, and Y&R) took home the fan voted Best Reality Star at the 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards: UNSCRIPTED that aired Sunday night.

During her acceptance speech, Stause expressed deep appreciated for the positive response she received after making her new romance with Australian singer/rapper G Flip public.

Following thanking those involved in Selling Sunset including her ex Jason Oppenheim, Stause shared: “I knew about this nomination before I had said anything about my sexuality. I’m not trying to get really deep with you guys, but the fact that this was voted on after means so much to me because I wasn’t sure how that was gonna go.”

Stause won the award over Chris Tamburello (The Challenge), Lindsay Hubbard (Summer House), Teresa Guidice (The Real Housewives of New Jersey) and Willow Pill (RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 14).

After her win, Chrishell tweeted:I. AM. SO. HONORED!!! Truly thank you to everyone that voted And thank you so much MTV & Netflix”

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.

Susan Lucci Shares on the Loss of Her Husband Helmut Huber: ‘The Love of My Life’ Followed by Outpouring of Support From Co-Stars & Colleagues

All My Children’s iconic Daytime Emmy-winning star, Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica Kane) suffered the most heartbreaking loss when her beloved husband of 53 years, Helmut Huber, passed away back last month on March 28th at the age of 84.

Eva LaRue (Ex-Maria, AMC) shared: “The most beautiful love story, better than any TV show could write! I’m so, so sorry for your loss Susan. Sending you so much love and all my prayers for comfort in your heartache.”

Andy Cohen (Watch What Happens Live, Bravo) wrote: “So sorry for your loss. The two of you were love personified ”

Rosalyn Sanchez  (Ex-Carmen, Devious Maids) expressed: “Thinking of you Susan… so sorry for your loss. Sending you love and light.”

Laura Wright  (Carly, GH) related: “Big love and hugs Susan – I’m so sorry for your loss ❤️❤️”
