AMC’s Greenlee Smyth has risen again!  As reported earlier by Daytime Confidential, Rebecca Budig is on her way back to AMC to resucciate her role of Greenlee just in time for the shows LA move, where Rebecca lives with her hubby, Bob Guiney.  The actress is set to tape scenes in New York next month and then continue with the show out in LA.  Here are some excerpts from the TV Guide interview by Michael Logan on Rebecca’s return…

What are you doing back? Didn’t Greenlee go over a cliff and plummet hundreds of feet into some kind of icy water?
I leave. I come back. [Laughs] I’m the Brett Favre of soaps. I think Greenlee went into a river. Or maybe a lake. I don’t know. Pine Valley is ridiculous. They even have a freakin’ ocean in that town.

It’s been reported online that you only agreed to a recurring stint on AMC so that you can do other projects.
They got it wrong. It’s a contract deal. [Executive producer] Julie Carruthers and I had a really nice conversation where she was feeling me out about coming back. I said, “I’m open to returning, but I just want to make sure there will be a great story because it’s going to be right at the start of pilot season. I don’t want to commit to something that’s not worthwhile and fun.”

As I recall, you weren’t happy with the way they were writing Greenlee, which is why you left earlier this year.
I want to play that interesting girl I played years ago. I think everyone at AMC wants to focus on character now, rather than having [plot move the show]. It’s about what’s going on underneath. They really want to revamp the show and take it in a better direction. Last time I was there, we kind of lost Greenlee along the way. I didn’t recognize her sometimes.

Greenlee was about to marry Ryan [Cameron Mathison] when she “died.” Now he’s romancing Erica [Susan Lucci]. Will Greenlee try to get him back? It’s not too late. Weirdly, they haven’t had sex yet.
They haven’t? And Ryan’s such a whore! But they do look great together. I have to say, I do love shooting those catfights with Susan.

WATCH: All My Children Reunion On Strahan & Sara

On Monday’s episode of ABC’s Strahan & Sara, the show welcomed several stars of the beloved All My Children for a reunion, of sorts. Joining hosts Michael Strahan and Sara Haines were Susan Lucci (Erica), Walt Willey (Jack), Cady McClain (Dixie), Jacob Young (JR) and Jill Larson (Opal).

While it was wonderful to see the stars from Pine Valley again, it was also a painful reminder that this network, ABC, canceled the show, and had put in its place – The Chew, and now Strahan & Sara – since canning the series.   In fact, as you will see on the clips below, many of the crew who work on this talk show were once the crew for All My Children.

During the segment, Susan Lucci was tested to see if she remembered all of Erica Kane’s wedded names.  Later, Walt Willey and Susan re-created the final scene of the ABC version of All My Children between Erica and Jack, where Jack walks out on her.  However, this time, they have Jack changing his mind and coming back to Erica and sealing their relationship with a kiss – a moment of closure that never happened (since the show moved to online via Prospect Park).

In addition, Cady McClain and Jacob Young re-created the infamous Dixie “dying from eating poison pancakes” scene, as JR watches his mother die, only this time she lives.

It’s always great to see these veteran performers, but Strahan & Sara is trying to capture the soap viewers to put eyeballs on their show by bringing in talent from the show that sadly and wrongly went off the air.

Watch the clips below from the All My Children reunion below.  Then, let us know what you thought of it via the comment section below.
