Everyone loved seeing Rebecca Budig (Greenlee) on-screen with Josh Duhamel when he returned for a brief stint as Leo du Pres, recently on All My Children. Problem was Duhamel’s return made Leo  just a dream and not one of the Pine Valley un-dead, care of the Project Orpheus.

Now Budig is admitting to TV Guide, just how she wanted Greenlee’s happy ending to turn out as All My Children bids farewell on network television on September 23rd. “You know how I wanted Leo to come back? I wanted him to be my ending,” Taking nothing away from Ryan (Cameron Mathison), but I wanted Leo and Greenlee to go through this whole thing. I wanted to be struggling because I find out he’s alive, and when I find him, he’s struggling because I’m the love of his life. In the end, I wanted them to go off together. The audience doesn’t know what’s going to happen to them, we just see them going away.”

Instead, of course, Greenlee woke up to find Zach (Thorsten Kaye), still alive after going down in a plane crash several months ago.  “It was a little bizarre. I was thrilled to work with Josh again, but it was sort of a tease, too,” Budig said.

The actress went on to admit, “I had something special with Josh that I’ve never had with anyone. It just felt really real and authentic and that’s hard to come by. I do feel that with Cameron, too, though. I don’t know — I got lucky.”

Would you have preferred a Leo and Greenlee reunion as AMC fades to black on ABC? Let us know!

I think I speak for a lot of people when I say HECK YES!!!! Rylee is putrid disgusting crap that is insuluting to the longtime viewers of AMC. Heck, even the actors don’t like it. Put Greenleo and Ryan/Gillian together and call it a day.

Absolutely!!! Rebecca understands and knows the GreenLeo fans so well! As happy as I was to see Josh come back as Leo, it was a HUGE disappointment that the writers chose to have him come back simply as a dream. I mean, Josh returning was a GIFT, and that was the best they could do?! Seriously, Rebecca was so right. Her ending for Greenlee would have been THE perfect ending, not only for Greenlee herself, but for Leo & Greenlee together. After all, they were one of AMC’s most loved couples EVER! There’s no reason why they couldn’t have written… Read more »

Nice to see someone’s in touch with what the audience wanted. Why in the hell didn’t they write it so that Leo was alive and so that he and Greenlee rode off into the sunset? I don’t know how they are going to do the whole Gillian story, since it was released that she is coming back, but if she shows up alive and Leo isn’t that will be a real disappointment for me. It doesn’t make sense, since we all saw her die, go through the operation and be buried…..but Leo whose body was never recovered is dead? Greenlee… Read more »

It is funny how the actors and the audience know what’s working and what doesn’t but not the people in charge, Frons mostly (but then again he is the idiot who canned OLTL when it’s the highest rated soap on his network!!! Moron!)
I love Leo and Greenlee too, they were my favorite thing about AMC EVER!!! Seeing clips of them from the past shows me how perfect they were and how much Leo is missed!!! At least the actor came back before it goes off.

Perhaps Josh/Leo didn’t have the time or desire to come and stay. I have also missed him a lot. He and Greenlee definitly had chemistry.

Something tells me that Leo would have turned out alive if the Prospect Park deals hadn’t come into play. That said, even then, if Rebecca Budig was sure to not make the transition to the web soap, they could have worked out in time a GreenLeo happy ending.

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.
