Susan Lucci pops up in Gloria Estefan's new music video for Hotel Nacional!

The actress who played Erica Kane for all she is worth and then some, Susan Lucci, has certainly been very busy since the cancellation of All My Children, with Army Wives, hosting a new reality/dramatic show, and now appearing in none other than Gloria Estefan’s new music video for her dance hit sensation, Hotel Nacional!

In this quirky video, La Lucci, who is mentioned in the lyrics of Hotel Nacional is seen strutting her stuff and cavorting with a bunch of handsome sailors!  Estefan’s lyrics to the tune include a nod to the soap icon, which is why having Susan was such a natural fit,  “White pearls, teased up hair …  Lipstick’s red to make ’em stare … Drama’s on like Susan Lucci … It’s time for Hoochie Coochie.”

Watch Susan in Gloria’s new video after the jump, which was first premiered exclusively on EOnline!

Susan Lucci, has been very busy with 1. Army Wives, 2. hosting a new reality/dramatic show, 3. appearing in none other than Gloria Estefan’s new music video. And Michael, don’t forget number 4: ” Hot in Cleveland”. Seems Susan is having a 2nd chapter or even 3rd after AMC, but Susan knew she would. She was in no rush to start studying scripts again, especially if they weren’t associated with Agnes Nixon and the forum she was use to. Susan knew she would thrive; we all did. I want Ereka Slezak to showcase her talents in Primetime and win that… Read more »

Yes, Susan is great at promoting herself just like Erica Kane, which is why I prefer the class and dignity of Erika Slezak. Why can’t we see her instead? Please.

LOL to your request. Exactly David. I see you saw where I was coming from. If Susan is on anything, I go out my way to look at it, BC I have been a Susan fan forever. But, as I have gotten older it seems Susan and Erica Kane are one in the same, the arguement I have fought with people about for year’s in her defense. I simply can’t tell them apart : ( And then, all of those ‘ ‘Thank You’s ‘ after everything someone says to her, is just too much/over abundance/ and not quite what I… Read more »

This is the year Susan SHOULD HAVE WON…… I feel it was a message to her PEERS, and those WHO ROBBED her of that award out of jealousy! She should have won the EMMY for THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I never thought I’d see it again BUT looked it up on YouTube after my post, and to my surprise the entire show it on it. Watch it and see Susan, be SO MUCH MORE than Erica!

Auh you’re a sweetheart. Thank you for seeing the issue on both sides. KEEP IN MIND, I agreeed with your position in my paragraphic long post. I just pointed out ( in contast) and what I know Susan can do, and how it would be FITTING to see her do more than Erica Kane types… and that is the reason I follow her waiting for the time it comes. She uses the same weapon (to keep the dough rolling in) they have used against her for year’s. Her beauty. What an irony. Thank’s David for having the expectation of Susan… Read more »

Hi David: This is 1loveabcsoaps. Is this your message that U replied to Iakovos/ david replied May 7th, 2012 at 7:07 pm ” No forethought and planning seems right. Oprah probably assumed OWN would be a success based on her past successes and because Discovery offered to invest. Employing her friends, without network experience, probably didn’t help either. Oprah turned down producing soaps because she thought scripted series were too expensive to produce, but compared to what OWN has lost, etc..” Is this you? Furthermore, Is this your message?

Erika Slezak deserve her own primetime sitcom. Although she said that she was open to join any of the four remaining soap operas, I just don’t see Slezak on theses soaps (not even on GH).

But on primetime, definitely. I’d follow Slezak and her potential sitcom on any channel, even on ABC.

I just got back from internet surfing ,mostly the soap sights ,I read at daytime confidential,that the hallmark channel is looking for some scripted dramas ,to bad they couldnt put one life to live on,once a week ,talk about giving erika slezak her own show again,the hallmark channel would have to get on there knees and beg abc to release the rights back to agnes nixon,any way its just a thought.also at facebook,(day time fans unite ) there is something there from p p.there was suppose to be news from them, I read the thing but its just the same… Read more »

I don’t believe crap that comes from Prospect Park nor do I think that One Life to Live will come back. ABC will never accept to release the rights to Nixon. That’s the cold hard truth. GH and Days are falling because they are failing to give the viewers what they want. They both emphasize too much on the same characters . With GH, it’s always Sonny, Jason and Carly , while with Days it’s all about Sami, EJ, Will, Hope and Bo. GH is a dark and depressing soap, while Days stories are just plain boring, ridiculous and unoriginal.… Read more »

yes she has been very busy as erika cane ,never thought about her that way ,your right ,years ago she was on a few ,made for tv movies cant remember what they were about.erika slezak is a good,if not one of the best actresses , she is the one who should be going all over the place getting parts for different roles ,if not her own show.as we have seen for 40 years she can be anyone,I miss her most of all.and yes she is as good as meryl streep.I would like to know what she is doing these days… Read more »

Thanks for replying. You are right. The Erica Kane role has stereotyped Susan and not always for the best, but I hadn’t really thought about it until you pointed it out. Susan is a good performer and deserves a wider stage for her talent. I agree Susan could dazzle in a role other than Erica if given the chance. If we were all a little more fair and even-handed in our judgments (except when it comes to ABC canceling OLTL), the world would be a better place.

the way susan lucci and ereka slezak sounded off after the canceling of the soaps I dont think,and I could be wrong ,they would want to work for abc.I know I wouldnt, not after what they did ,by putting alot of people out of work,because of greed and nothing else,and I cant believe abc is making any money with the idiot shows they have on now, especially the one that they are paying people to go in to watch.I can see mickey mouse and daffy duck outside the abc studio now, begging people to go see there boring ,stupid show.sorry… Read more »

I really think Susan Lucci would shine on a sitcom. And in fairness to her, I think Erica Kane became bigger than life but Lucci must be a really good actress because everyone confuses Lucci with Erica Kane. But Lucci is a committed family person and hardly like Erica Kane which shows she can act. The problem is as I have said before everyone identifies so heavily Susan with Erica but you can’t say that about too many actors/characters. This isn’t logical, and the saem but not as much for Erika Sleazak, Lucci has stayed true to daytime tv. She… Read more »

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.

Soap Vet, Broadway Star and Artistic Director, Robert Lupone Passes Away at 76

Bob Lupone, the brother of Broadway Icon, Patti Lupone, and who is best-known to soap opera fans as con artist Zach Grayson on All My Children (1984-1985) has died at the age of 76.

The actor, and artistic director of Off-Broadway’s acclaimed MCC Theatre for over 40 years, passed away Saturday, due to complications from his three year battle with pancreatic cancer.

Photo: MCC Theatre

Ironically, Bob was best known on Broadway as Zach in A Chorus Line which landed him a Tony Award nomination in 1976, and he also received a Daytime Emmy nomination for his other role of Zach on All My Children in 1985.  The murder of Zach Grayson was quite the murder mystery and trial; bringing in many suspects to the story.

In addition to All My Children, throughout his soap career, Lupone held roles on: Search for Tomorrow as Tom Bergman, Ryan’s Hope as Chester Wallace, Another World as Neal Cory, Loving as Leonard Brill/Charley Nichols, and Guiding Light as Leo Flynn.  He also appeared in primetime TV roles including: The Sopranos, Sex and the City, and several roles in the Law and Order franchise.

Lupone made his feature film debut in the 1973 musical adaptation of Jesus Christ Superstar playing the Apostle James, and two years later got the Broadway role of his lifetime playing Zach in A Chorus Line after convincing creator and director Michael Bennett to let him play the part after the original actor departed the show.

A decade later, LuPone would co-found the Off-Broadway theatre company, MCC Theater, with Bernard Telsey and William Cantler.  MCC was founded as an artists collective designed to offer peer based classes and playwright development and has launched several successful shows that went on to great success.

LuPone is survived by his wife, Virginia; his son, Orlando; sister, Patti; and brother, William.

Below, take a look at the suspects in the Zach Grayson murder case on All My Children, followed by the 1976 performance by Robert and the cast of A Chorus Line on The Tony Awards, and last, a scene as AMC’s Zach around the 6 minute mark in the video.

Now, share your condolences to the Lupone family on Bob’s passing, and your remembrances in the comment section.
