Motion picture star, Josh Duhamel will make his highly anticipated return to All My Children on the August 4th episode to reprise his Daytime Emmy Award winning role of  Pine Valley’s favorite con artist, Leo du Pres, who allegedly died in 2003.

As many recall, Leo was deeply in love with Greenlee played by Rebecca Budig, when he presumably perished over the falls! ABC Daytime is teasing that Duhamel’s return promises storyline twists and turns that All My Children fans have grown to know and love.

ABC released some principal photography today of Josh in a few scenes with Rebecca Budig and this solo shot at the doorway.

Are you looking forward to some Leo? We are!

So, after taking a glance at these photos, what do you think brings Leo back? Is he a ghost or is he real?

My first couple love on amc was Leo and Greenlee. I am so excited Josh is returning. It’s great that after all his success that he is still so grateful for is time on amc. So very humble, I just love that about him. I prefer Leo to be alive but if I haven to take a ghost it’s worth it just to have Josh back on my datytime screen!

I want him to be real so bad and I want Greenlee to run off with Leo to Paris when the show’s television broadcast ends…it’s how it always should have been. These two were soulmates but unfortunately…I think Greenlee dreams about Leo but I still think he maybe alive but I don’t think he reunites with Greenlee in the end which means things will not end as they always should have which is the worst thing to happen when a show ends….even if it’s just on TV and will continue online, I don’t know that Budig won’t continue with the… Read more »

Hell yes they belong together! Greenlee should end her run on TV with LEO, not Ryan!!! Anything less will be totally unacceptable to all us GreenLeo fans out there! (I don’t think Rebecca Budig will be continuing online. So it would be VERY easy to write a happy ending for this most beloved AMC couple!) I’m not planning on watching the online version, so this is the end of the line for me. Greenlee HAS TO end up with Leo; she just has to!!!

She might continue online, especially since her good friend Cameron wrote on his twitter account that if he is offered to stay and go online he will. He wants to stay with amc. Rebecca and him have been friends for years and they love working together. I’ve seen Rebecca in a few other things, and Cameron too and though I love them dearly as Ryan and Greenlee, they won’t really make it anywhere else. Just like Susan Lucci, she tried to leave and do other stuff but the stuff was short lived and she ended up back. It’s weird with… Read more »

In light of Rebecca’s recent interview with TVLine.com, it seems highly unlikely that she will continue online, regardless if Cameron continues or not. (IMO, I don’t think Cameron will either.) As for what they can achieve outside of soaps, I don’t agree with you. Cameron is doing well with his GMA gig & Kelly Ripa even mentioned him as a possible replacement for Regis. I think he would be just fine if he chooses not to continue online. As for Rebecca Budig, I think she will do very well. She’s just as talented an actor as Josh Duhamel is. So… Read more »

Josh I’m glad your doing AMC before it goes off air, however, I’m not happy that you are being paired with that horrible actress who plays Greenlee, her bug eyes just annoy me.

It’s hard to see than AMC is going off the air but it will continue online, it will not be the same but I’m happy to see everyone who is returning Can’t wait to see how it all ends. I’m angry at ABC because they are making a big mistake in canceling AMC because they want to put a food reality show in its place, thats why there is Food Network Channel, they are comming up with some of the most stupid shows like cupcake wars, cake boss,Have Cake, Will Travel, last cake standing ect. All I know is that… Read more »

Greenlee has been with Ryan longer then she was ever with Leo. Ryan and Greenlee have great chemistry and if Josh Dumal had stayed all these years, we all know that they would not be a couple any longer.

They got to stop this scifi station crap they’re pulling on us.

First off, Ryan and Greenlee has no chemistry at all. And Leo will always be the love of Greenlee’s life. And if Leo was alive today, there is no way she would take a second look at Ryan. Because Ryan doesn’t hold a candle to Leo. It’s really quite simple.

I respectfully disagree. I’ve watched all the couples and yes, Rebecca and Josh has chemistry but so does Rebecca with Cameron. Josh left the show almost 10 years ago and Rebecca was worried about doing scenes with him again as she did not know if they could re-create the same chemistry that had years (and years) ago. Basically all this Leo and Greenlee stuff is old news as they were only together about a year to a year and a half and then he was gone….. Greenlee and Ryan have been together much longer and I love their stuff in… Read more »

I just got done watching the All My Children episode of where Leo appears to Greenlee in a dream. I was so upset to find out that ABC did that. He should have been alive. But I’d really like to believe he is because in the first picture up above, they’re showing Leo leaning up against the wall at the Pine Valley Hospital so maybe he is alive. I hope he is alive and he comes knocking at Ryan’s door asking for Greenlee or at least goes looking for her to see how she’s doing. If he doesn’t, I’ll be… Read more »

I don’t think he is alive. After watching the scene I came away with the feeling that Leo said if she had to be with someone it might as well as be Ryan. Ryan and Leo were best bust and Leo remembers how much Greenlee wanted Ryan before they got together. As he said he just wants her to be happy. I did love the flashbacks and remember how beautiful Rebecca’s hair was and how much better it suits her. I’ve always loved David’s character and how much love he had for his brother. I loved him years ago when… Read more »

Kelly Ripa Talks On Her New Memoir ‘Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories’

Talk show host and All My Children alum, Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley) is opening up about her life and times in her highly-anticipated memoir available now, Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories.

Ripa chatted exclusively with PEOPLE who got some of intel and dish on what’s included in the book.

Kelly told PEOPLE, when she landed the gig as the new co-host of Live with Regis and Kelly, with the late Regis Philbin back in 2001, she felt like she was “getting shot out of a cannon.”  Ripa was also appearing on All My Children at the same time.

She tells the story of when her agent called with the offer, Ripa was told: “They want you to know who your boss is. It was very ominous, and it did not feel good.”  Her agent also said the show didn’t want her, “bringing an entourage.” She brought two people. “I came with hair and makeup,” Kelly says. “It was not an unusual thing for people on a television show to show up with.”

She added that Regis greeted her with executive producer, Michael Gelman, saying: “Uh-oh, Gelman, it’s got an entourage.” It?!  Kelly expressed that she “felt horrible.  He was probably trying to be funny, but at the same time it felt like a pile-on.”

As for Philbin’s attitude at the time, Kelly shared, “I understand that probably he didn’t want a co-host, but the network wanted me to be the co-host and I didn’t think I should pass up that opportunity. I don’t think it was fair to him. But it was also not fair to me.”

The actress-talk show host-producer also talked on her marriage to Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo), whom she met while both were on All My Children, sharing that they were, “too young to get married! On paper it should not have worked and when it didn’t work, we really worked at it. We fought for our marriage when it would have been easier to quit and throw in the towel.”

According to the book publisher, HarperCollins:  “In ‘Live Wire’, her first book, Kelly shows what really makes her tick. Whether recounting how she and Mark (Consuelos) really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment) Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.”

So, will you be ordering your copy of Kelly’s memoir? Let us know in the comment section below.

Eva LaRue’s Stalker Sentenced to 40 Months in Prison

In a harrowing situation spanning 12 years, a man who threatened former All My Children, Santa Barbara, and Y&R favorite, Eva LaRue (ex-Maria, ex- Margot, ex-Celeste) and her daughter, Kaya was sentenced to 40 months in prison.

James David Rogers, 58, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge John A. Kronstadt for over a decade of threatening letters and phone calls about torture, rape and death to LaRue and her daughter.

Rogers had pleaded guilty in April to two counts of mailing threatening communications, one count of threats by interstate communications and two counts of stalking.  According to court documents, all of this began in March 2007 until Rogers eventually was arrested in November 2019.  At the beginning of his stalking spree, LaRue’s daughter, Kaya was only five-years-old.

According to Deadline, Eva gave a “tearful victim impact statement, telling the judge in L.A. federal court that she has undergone therapy since the harassment began in order to deal with feelings of fear and paranoia.”  She added, “We didn’t know if he would show up on our doorstep. We will think about him for a lifetime. The fear is with me forever.”

The judge has ordered Rogers to self surrender on October 12th to begin his sentence at a federal prison in Ohio.

Eva won a Daytime Emmy back in 2020 for her guest star turn on The Young and the Restless, and is best-known to primetime viewers for her role in CSI: Miami.
