Rebecca Budig (Greenlee) discussed her feelings on the emotional ending of All My Children on network television to TVLine.com and she addressed some of the mystery surrounding the final cliffhanger.  It seems as we suspected that image we all saw of Josh Duhamel as Leo, standing in a door way in a suit was intended for the finale before the show was migrating online via Prospect Park!

The actress also reveals how Greenlee lost her fire along the way, and where she is with the Prospect Park negotiations, since originally fans were hearing she was ready to sign-on!  Here are some excerpts from the interview below!

Budig on Josh Duhamel as Leo coming back at the end: “Oh, you know, they shot something with Josh when he was here in August. I think they were going to use that in the finale before All My Children was purchased by Prospect. Now don’t hold me to it, but I do believe that was the intention when the show was going to end one way. But it’s been changed now.”

Budig on the final cliffhanger decision: “I have to say I don’t really know the particulars, I just know that they were going to tie loose ends up. That was the original intention, but when the show was bought by Prospect Park, they decided to go in a completely different direction.  Everyone is left on a cliffhanger, including people like Debbi Morgan (Angie) who will no longer be with the show after Friday’s finale.”

Budig on her contract talks with Prospect Park: “I will say that I think that Prospect Park is going to turn the show around and make it great. I believe they’re going to make it a success. I’m actually very excited to see what they do with it. They’re really smart, dedicated, and passionate about it, and not to say that ABC wasn’t, but Prospect Park is going to breathe new energy into the show. That’s exciting for All My Children and the fans. I have met with Prospect Park and we are still talking.”

So would you have liked to have seen Leo come to the Chandler party at the very end on yesterday’s cliffhanger? We would have!

It’s a shame that the Prospect Park purchase cheated Leo fans out of a happy ending.

Amen!! I feel we got cheated out of Babe, Gillian and Leo’s return, because of the finale change due to the PP deal. I mean, who is this woman that David just refuses to tell everyone that he’s keeping under his care? They could have at least given us this one. I understand the need for a cliffhanger, but being that we don’t even know who is coming back on the show in January, I wanted closure on this mystery woman with the B bracelet that Dixie remembers seeing.

Days is guaranteed to be on the air through September 2013. They are bringing back vets to *avoid* cancellation at their next renewal date.

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.
