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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

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!!!

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.
