I am delighted for Rebecca even though I never heard of this show. She is smart not to seek another soap job. Cameron Mathison is doing well in his entertainment story gigs. Rebecca was one of my favorites.

Always have liked Rebecca in anything that I have seen her in. Have watched amazing water homes, her stint co-hosting the view and a lifetime movie The Perfect Child. She is an incredible actress and portrayed Greenlee Smythe with such depth – showing her strength, but still exhibiting her as vunerable. The other great thing about Rebecca is that she was technically such a great actress that she always made the scenes better whether she was with excellent actors such as David Canary, Vincent Irizarry or Thorsten Kaye. Or a poor actor like Cameron Matthieson.

Good luck to her in her new venture!!!

Loved her as Greenlee. I am just not interested in boring talk shows and all talk shows are boring.

I really miss Rebecca portraying Greenlee on AMC. I wish she would go back to acting as she was such a multi-talented actress. One can only hope! Good luck Rebecca.

I think this is awesome for Rebecca. But I do wish she’d come back to the daytime soaps. I would love to see her on DAYS or Y&R if AMC isn’t an option for her.

Id like her to play Taylor…Nicoles sister…if she was on Days!!!

I’d rather see Natalia Livingston return as Taylor, and Rebecca be brought in as Sarah Horton. Or even Kelly Sullivan as Sarah Horton!

If E.D. wasnt returning as Kristen, i believe Kelly Sullivan would be the perfect replacement…i loved Natalie as Taylor but if not available for whatever reason, then i think Rebecca would be good in that role…i wouldnt mind seeing her play Sarah but i sometimes feel that tptb want us to forget Maggie had other children besides Danny Boy!!!

No no. Only Eileen should be Kristen. Sorry. I don’t see anyone replacing her, especially if DAYS waited almost 14 years for her to come back.

JUst looked at the schedule for the Better Show for next week — Rebecca’s first week. Josh Duhamel is the guest on Wednesday, September11th!!!!
Must admit Leo and Greenlee are my most favorite soap couple ever!! Now here’s my concern, the Better show does not air in my local market until it starts on the Hallmark station on September 30th. Guess it’s on in some select tv areas now and has been throughout past years. That’s why,like another poster, I had not heard of it before. So, if you get the Hallmark channel you should be able to get this show after Sept 30th. But more importantly, hope the web site has lots of clips from Josh’s appearance after the 11th. Please everybody ….. let’s try to support Rebecca and make her show a success so that she will remain on the air.

I loved Rebecca on this show. She is a natural and she has great chemistry with her co-star JD Roberto. I can’t wait til this show goes national on Hallmark. Rebecca should have had her own show like this ages ago! My hope is that this only brings bigger & better opportunities for her, (which she so deserves!) For example, I would love to see her reunited with her former AMC co-star Josh Duhamel IN A MOVIE!!! Why hasn’t anyone suggested/made this happen yet???! It’s a no-brainer!!!

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
