Over the past three days including today, there has been a mass media-blitz happening in print, television, online, radio to make the public aware of the excitement of the return of All My Children and One Life to Live tomorrow!

On-Air On-Soaps has put together a round up of some of our favorite quotes from various news sources that have run since Friday with One Life’s Robin Strasser, Jennifer Pepperman, Jerry verDorn and Shenaz Treasury and AMC’s Vincent Irizarry, Rob Scott Wilson, Ginger Smith, as well as Prospect Park’s Rich Frank.   Here they are below!

One Life to Live’s Robin Strasser (Dorian) spoke to Huffington Post about her feelings on ABC killing OLTL only to have Prospect Park resurrect it!  “I enjoy holding a grudge. I carry grudges like excess baggage. OK, I’m not wishing personal or family harm, but a badass mistake was made that shot down a lot of jobs, careers and two fabulous shows. If, at some point, they own their mistake or karma’s a bitch and comes around, then so be it. At least I’m sane enough to know I’m not in charge of that.”

One Life to Live’s executive producer, Jennifer Pepperman told The Associated Press when discussing the exciting online return of the beloved series,  “This is a second chance.   It is a wonderful gift.”

Prospect Park’s Rich Frank explained to The Associated Press how the new OLTL and AMC are very much like TV shows! “These are not webisodes. We are shooting television as everyone knows it. This is traditional TV storytelling distributed a different way — and it’s a superior way.”

All My Children’s executive producer Ginger Smith told The Associated Press how she was able to lure top-notch talent back to Pine Valley:  “With every former member of the cast, staff and crew, when I called them they said, ‘We want to get in the trenches with you.’ When I called Cady McClain, she said, ‘Where do you want me and what time do you want me there?’”

All My Children’s Vincent Irizarry (David) spoke to Today about the series ABC finale cliffhanger that will resonate on the new revival:  “That moment took on significant impact in David’s life.  We’re going to see the effects of that (based on) what took place that night at Brooke and Adam’s party. That event continues to propel David forward in the weeks, months and years ahead. He’s going to be that character that viewers know and love to hate.”

One Life to Live’s Jerry verDorn (Clint) spoke to the New Jersey Herald on the shows comeback, the ABC cancellation and getting to be with the core cast of Llanview once again :  “It (the show) looks better than on ABC. The way the show looks it is high quality. I am very pleased …  It (the cancellation) was emotionally tough. I was sorry for the crew … I was elated to be rejoining my friends! … This is very dear to my heart. I remember when I was breaking in, actors would tell me about the transition of shows from radio to television  ….I think this is similarly historic. I’m glad to be part of the changing of the guard.

All My Children’s Rob Scott Wilson (Pete Cortlandt) spoke to The Boston Herald.com citing,  “Working with Jill Larson, 
who plays my mom on the show, is a blessing.  She makes it so much easier. I have great conversations. I’m in love with Cady McClain and Julia Barr. They welcome us with open arms. If we are overwhelmed, they calm us down.”  Wilson also spoke of his knowledge of soaps! “I grew up with my mom and my grandma, so I watched a lot of daytime.  I was forced to watch with them when I was a little kid. Now, I get to reminisce about that. I know my mom and my family are so excited for me to be a part of this.”

One Life to Live’s Shenaz Treasury (Rama) told Variety in regards to the new shooting schedule which often times goes well into the night:  “It has a feel like it’s new and fresh.  I don’t think we’ve cut back on anything.  16-hour day feels like a luxury for me!”

So AMC and OLTL fans, which quotes did you like the best from the above?  Are you optimistic that the shows can have some legs once they are up and running with all-new episodes tomorrow?  Share your thoughts!

After seeing the episodes Tuesday this resonates with me….

“Prospect Park’s Rich Frank explained to The Associated Press how the new OLTL and AMC are very much like TV shows! “These are not webisodes. We are shooting television as everyone knows it. This is traditional TV storytelling distributed a different way — and it’s a superior way.”

Robin had the nerve to say what she feels without worrying about any Disney/ABC bridges she may be burning. Props!

I also love that the new One Life To Live gave her a line “Screw your reality show. This is my life!”

I’m counting the hours. Will probably have to watch the first episodes several times because I know I’ll be overcome with tears of joy. I have missed OLTL like my dearest relative. And why won’t I? I’ve watched since the original debut, July 15, 1968. I’ve watched AMC off and on over the years and now will become a regular viewer.

All the quotes are wonderful. Robin Strasser, you took the words right out of my mouth. I love you.

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.
