Susan Lucci Dishes On Devious Maids and The Status of an All My Children Return!

Courtesy/Lifetime

Courtesy/Lifetime

Devious Maids is finally arriving next Sunday, June 23rd (10PMEST) on Lifetime co-starring soap opera icon Susan Lucci!  The Devious Maids pilot episode was just made available for viewers to entice them to join in the fun and the dramedy of the 13 episode arc series on Hulu.com!

Lucci made a stop to Washington D.C.’s WUSA-TV to promote her new role in Devious Maids, but also dished on if a return to All My Children is in any way imminent!

The Daytime Emmy winner, who many hope can work it out to appear in upcoming episodes of the revival of Pine Valley noted once again in this television interview that she is back now filming in New York her Investigation Discovery series, Deadly Affairs, and so she is hoping that Prospect Park and her team can sit down look at the schedules of everyone and figure out if a return could be imminent when the show goes back into production after the labor dispute is resolved as well as the current AMC and OLTL hiatus.

Watch the segment after the jump!  Then, let us know, do you hope Susan returns still to AMC? Will you be watching her on Marc Cherry’s Devious Maids? Let us know!

Susan is one of my favorite actresses, she’s entertaining in whatever she does. Still hoping for an AMC return, however. I think Erica would fit right it as the new series is quite brash and that is exactly what she is.

Hoping she returns to AMC. The show really needs her and Michael E. Knight to return. Not liking the characters being recast! Bring back Erica Kane (Lucci) fulltime.

DM is On Demand, so I’ll at least check out the first ep. If it’s good, I’ll watch.

I will be checking out devious maids but I have one question. Is Susan playing a major character on DM?? All the ads I have seen for DM I have yet to catch a glimpse of Susan?? you really missed the mark lifetime not promoting the fact that Susan is a part of this series.

wow, the reporter certainly has not done her homework as far as All My Children is concerned; First she calls her Susan Loosey, at least that’s what I heard. And then she’s like, I hear All My Children might be coming back? What? Get your homework done first girl.

I thought the same thing – do some research lady before you Interview someone as Iconic as Susan Lucci – learn to pronounce her name correctly and get your facts straight. She bluffed her way (badly) while attempting to interview Susan.

AMC could only benefit by Susan Lucci. Erica is not even mentioned, let alone seen. There is a lack of Kanes in Pine Valley, and I’m hoping for Aunt Kendall and Grandma Erica to join Miranda and Bianca in town soon. How great it would be to see Erica and Dimitri mix it up again! I watched the first eppy of Devious Maids and it’s not bad. SL was only in 2 or 3 scenes, so she’s not The Star of the show, but she’s good and it’s nice to see her acting again, especially in a role that is… Read more »

Actually Bianca has brought up Erica’s name a couple times when she has scenes with Miranda. I do hope Susan can work things out to make an appearance. I love the reboot but her presence is diffinitely missed!

Yes, let’s hope that is where things are headed–not just a guest appearance, but regular appearances and storylines with the Great Erica Kane in them.

Johnny

Well, her character is needed on ALL MY CHILDREN, that’s all I can say. Maybe If Erica Kane was there with Bianca and if they bring in Kendall it might bear more of a resemblence to the AMC we all know and remember. Somehow, without Tad Martin, Erica Kane, Kendall Slater and other key players, Pine Valley doesn’t quite feel like Pine Valley to me. At least, if Susan were around as Erica Kane she could annoy Brooke and interfere with how Bianca handles Miranda.

I disagree. Don’t get me wrong I would be happy to see Erica, Tad and Kendall back but even though they’re not on now I feel AMC is better than I’ve ever seen it. Lots of fans hated on the show for years even when those characters were on. As long as they keep doing great I won’t get hung up on who currently isn’t on.

So I get it that this is a new beginning for PV, but I am one of the long time watchers since the 60s when I was a kid. Is the new beginnings of AMC supposed to only cater to the “new” “younger” viewers and say, out with the old, in with the new? I’ll bet it would lose a lot of longtime loyal viewers where were the very ones screaming to keep AMC and OLTL when it was canceled by the unnamed horrible network? that would not be fair. There has to be a balance–a good balance that is… Read more »

I totally agree!!! Don’t understand why it had to start out 5 years after the original show ended. Dixie is not old enough to be a grandmother to A.J. and I don’t like the new J.R. The show just doesn’t seem right!!

Erica would never fit into the new modern AMC..
she just does not belong in this AMC.. she will be very out of place and look ridiculous with her trade mark diva hair flipping 80’s era diva flaunting ..
even on Devious Maids she will still be the prancing diva Erica, she can only be the 80’s diva no matter what roll she would play ..
And that will not fit into this AMC.. 🙂

SuOOOO, I totally disagree with you on your take that Erica Kane would be out of place and look ridiculous. Preposterous assumption on your part. Erica Kane (played by none other than Susan Lucci would actually boost the ratings of the show. She will fit into PV much better than some of the other new characters. She is the life of PV in my book. She’s bigger than life, and so much more than an “80s diva” in my book. Right now, PV needs life pumping back into it. Sure there are great storylines going on, but PV seems subdued… Read more »

susan lucci is not coming back to all my children. too late. its going to be cancelled soon. susan lucci has moved on. agnes nixon failed yet again. i hate agnes nixon. she is such a bitch. she is phoney and needs to retire, i never did like agnes nixon. she is senile old witch.

Leo, I keep hearing that the cancelation rumors are not true and got started up after someone picked up on an old post while ABC still owned the rights to the shows. Well, Prospect Park owns the rights now and as far as I know both shows are doing quite well and are NOT getting canceled at all. Where are you getting your information from.

After the mess Marc Cherry made with Desperate Housewives, I won’t be tuning in to Devious Maids, but I do hope Susan can come back to AMC. I wonder how Erica would feel about Dimitri working closely with Brooke?

I think AMC desperatly needs Susan Lucci back. The show needs her kind of drama on it. I watch AMC faithfully, bu I miss the longstanding characters, Erica, Ryan, Tad, Liza. I like the storyline with Pete and Celia, but I think she needs to ditch the school and get her own place. We need to see some backstory about where Colby has been and what she’s been up to…She acts like a bad-girl now (I wonder what’s happened to make her that way?) I miss Kendall and wish she would return–she was always more exciting than Bianca anyway. What… Read more »

I’m with you on that – why in the heck do they need Billy Clyde Tuggle back on the show? It is almost as if the Producers will grab anyone who used to be on the show that is available. His character was cute and funny back in the day (waaay back in the day) but seems pointless now.

I get it they are trying to show the dangers of young girls being too trusting in public places and what can happen (and really does happen in real life) every day, not just in America, but across the globe. I get that, but Billy Clyde Tuggle? He was a joke back in the day and he’s a joke in 2013. How does he even have any “girls” in his so-called “stable?” I mean, just look at him…how on earth could someone like him EVER pull that off? I am not LMAO. So, I get it now…he is back to… Read more »

I see both sides of the picture here – I do understand that some feel that this ALL MY CHILDREN is a new inception of the show, which to some degree it is. However, the character of Erica Kane can only help this show, which so far has had some very mediocre scripts. True, the character of Erica Kane is a little over-the-top but that’s how she is, and to say that she just wouldn’t “fit in” with this modern show is a little harsh, I think she would fit in just fine. The scene between the new Colby and… Read more »

Enjoyed the pilot of DM and plan on watching the series … it’s a good ensemble show with very dark humor. Would welcome a brief visit to Pine Valley by Erica but the AMC reboot has been so well planned with respect to character and story, it’s not necessary for SL to become a permanent cast member; recasts and new characters are excellent. Would like to see Kendall return, if possible, and it would be a pleasure to welcome Tad the Cad if he wants to catch up with his family members … but he may not want another confrontation… Read more »

I agree, I would love to see Erica whenever Susan has a chance to show up and do short term arcs. Count me as another one who really misses Kendall, and feels that AMC badly needs her. There’s something not quite clicking with this show yet, but I think getting a few more familiar faces would help. I’m hopeful the new writers are looking at doing just that and looking forward to what they will bring to the show.

Susan is an icon as Erica Kane and she needs to be on AMC now. She brings a bit of oomph to the show; she is needed now.

One person on here had written that all Latin americans are the help when it was discussed that a former days actor was cast on this devious drama. It’s bec pop culture shapes how people are viewed. This is exactly the reason for american government spending tons of money researching film and tv as propaganda tools. It’s bec stupid films and tv shows from hollywood make people think that how hollywood portrays certain chars is true for entire groups. Majority of gay chars are shown as rich and white bec hollywood wants people to think flatteringly abt 1.6% of population.… Read more »

Latin americans are really being bashed recently. Devious drama is obviously very offensive towards Latin americans. Even a child singer named sebastian de la cruz is getting hate tweets from racists for singing national anthem at spurs arena for nba finals. Where’s hollywood screaming abt how a Latin american child is being bullied? Tolerant hollywood would only be screaming if it was abt gay bullying. All these nba athletes and general managers and coaches were tweeting praise and speaking to the media abt how past nba athlete collins has come out of the closet. But only spurs coach gregg popovich… Read more »

One of the joys of the original AMC was that it was multi-generational. In thread after thread of recent conversation, the naysayers of the new AMC have been reminded of the iconic “teen” stories that have fueled the show for over 40 years. I know; I saw them all. The new incarnation is still getting on its feet, and I think they are addressing a certain imbalance in the generational storytelling. Frankly, I find the plotlines for Jesse, Angie, Zach, David, JR and Cara more compelling right now than the stories for the younger folks. I think they’re missing a… Read more »

You’re right about that aspect of it too Brad, it’s missing humor. It’s also missing some decent writing. The fact that Tad Martin isn’t there hurts the show – and I now agree it has to be Michael E. Knight in the role or don’t bother – and of course, Erica Kane has to be played by Susan Lucci. I am now convinced that Key roles cannot be re-cast so easily. A supporting role like Colby Chandler, well fine, she’s been played by so many blonde actresses what’s the difference. But if ALL MY CHILDREN doesn’t get on the stick,… Read more »

Johnny, I don’t think we’ve seen the work of the new writers yet. Hopefully, they will bring some wit and flair to the proceedings. And yes, some characters are iconic and cannot be successfully recast (although Jill Larson has done a wonderful job as Opal #2, and I sure remember how amazing Dorothy Lyman was.). Better a brief cameo by Susan Lucci than a “new” Erica. But they know that!

I started watching All My Children In 1980 and Erica was my favorite character. I hope she does return. Even though I am watching every new episode it is not the same without her. I would also like to see Michael Knight come back as Tad.

I am LOVING Susan Lucci in Devious Maids. She has a comedic side we have not seen while channeling echos of Erica Kane (slightly nutty) but awesome. We will see Ms. Lucci on AMC in the future now that Oprah has picke the shows up for a “test” run so AMC fan relax…our dreams will come true soon!!! 🙂

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

Photo: JPI

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.

Chadwick Boseman, ‘Black Panther’ Star and the Original Reggie On AMC, Dies At 43

In just heartbreaking news in an already dismal 2020, one of the brightest motion picture stars, Chadwick Boseman has died at the age of 43.

Boseman was battling colon cancer for the last four years of his life.  According to his rep, Boseman was diagnosed in 2016 with stage 3 colon cancer and his battle continued as it progressed to stage 4

Chadwick passed away with his wife and family by his side in his home.   In a shocking revelation, all of the movie performances in the last four years he has filmed were done in between chemotherapy and countless surgery.

Boseman is best known for his groundbreaking role as King T’Challa  in Black Panther.   His performance was the first ever Marvel Studio movie headlined by a black actor.  The film was nominated for an Academy Award.   He first appeared as the character in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

Most recently, Chadwick appeared in the Spike Lee’s Vietnam War drama Da 5 Bloods, and this year he’s due to appear opposite Viola Davis Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” the film adaptation of the August Wilson play.  The actor starred in other films, including playing James Brown in Get On Up and Jackie Robinson in 42,  and the lead role in Marshall.

However, Boseman actually got his start on All My Children when he was the original actor cast in the role of Reggie Porter.  He appeared on the soap for only one week before the role was recast with none other than Michael B. Jordan, and their paths could eventually cross years later on multiple film projects.

In an interview in 2019, Boseman revealed what led him to be fired from All My Children stating:  “When I got it (the part), I was like, ‘This is not part of my manifesto. This is not part of what I want to do. How can I make it work?’ Because with a soap opera, you don’t know the full scope of what’s gonna happen — you don’t know where they’re gonna take the character, because they don’t always know where the character is going. And because of that, there’s possibly room for me to adjust this and change it and make it so it’s stereotypical on the page but not on the screen.”

For Boseman had issues with how Reggie was portrayed and how it was written with racial stereotypes.  In story, Reggie was a young gang member who was adopted by Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and her husband, Jackson Montgomery (Walt Willey). “I remember going home and thinking, ‘Do I say something to them about this? Do I just do it?’ And I couldn’t just do it. “I had to voice my opinions and put my stamp on it. And the good thing about it was, it changed it a little bit for Michael B. Jordan.”  Apparently the producers told Boseman he was too much trouble but took some of his suggestions on the role moving forward.

Share your thoughts and condolences on the passing of Chadwick Boseman via the comment section below.

Watch below, when Chadwick speaks at the Howard University commencement in which he shared to the graduating students about losing his gig on All My Children(Thanks to Renee for this)
