Soap icon, Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica Kane, All My Children) revealed Monday on Good Morning America,that she underwent a second heart surgery last month in January.

According to Susan, one night she started to feel discomfort when pain was radiating around her rib cage.  She was also short of breath.

She told GMA’s Amy Robach, “I thought, ‘This is crazy. These are the same kind of symptoms that I had three years ago, but it can’t be.’ But when I lay down, I started to feel a sharp coming-and-going pain in my jaw.” That symptom is known for woman to be the start of a cardiac event.

Lucci went to the ER and eventually had a stent implanted in a coronary artery that was 80% blocked, potentially avoiding a serious heart attack.   It was a little over three years ago that Susan had her first cardiovascular episode. At that time, doctors discovered two other arteries that were blocked.

Luckily, Susan who is now 75, is on the mend, but her physician, Richard Shlofmitz, was also on GMA, and said if Lucci had ignored the symptoms, “It would have gotten more progressive and then it would have become more urgent.”

Robach shared that Susan’s prognosis is now “very good.”

Susan, we love you and are so glad you caught this. Be safe always, Kristyl and the pups in CA xoxo

Isn’t she some kind of workout person?
Wasn’t she selling her workout stuff, and diet stuff..?
Goes to show– all that time and effort and two heart surgeries, sigh..
I wish her the best.

She’s 75 ya plank. Bodies breakdown. Things start malfunctioning. Are you serious right now?

Su000…You seem to get around a lot on soap news. I wonder if you have seen JimL (I think that was his call name) anywhere? He used to be a regular on MF. There are others who used to be regulars that I don’t see often, but they drop in occasionally..

Hi Rose–
Actually – I seldom go around checking out soap news–
I mainly stop in here and DL- when I have the time to read etc.
So- I’m not much help-
When I have looked around- I did notice that
herein the posts are usually posted only twice a day? in comparison to the instant post posting boards. Perhaps he likes that-
Anyways I hope he’s OK.
Stay safe, Rose 🙂

Jim h. He’s always coming up with funny alternate storylines. I know he had health issues, and some financial ones too. I hope he’s ok also. Could have been all those political barbs and comments other than soap related during Trump presidency. It became quite contentious.

daviestev…yes…his funny alternative storylines..I was concerned for him for the reasons you suggested. And if I remember right I think he was put off by those other kind of comments. Hope he is okay.

Maybe if she hadn’t done all these things to help herself in the past, she may have had a massive heart attack and died years ago. So happy she didn’t ignore her jaw pain. Love you, Susan!

Hope she gets better soon miss you on all my children please be safe and love you

I hope you are well soon youre the best!

Praying for you

Be well Susan. You are a brillant lady to take care of your discomfort

Susan deserves the best and she got the Chairman of Cardiology at St. Francis Hospital he is the top doctor I’m glad she got the best.

I really miss some of the soap stars like Susan, even if they could be over the top sometime. And even funny, unlike some of the female leads on other soaps. Erica was the best. Glad to hear she is one the mend.

so glad you listened to your body and went to the hospital. Hoping and praying things will be all better soon.

Get well soon
You’re beautiful & a wonderful actress

Susan, I appreciate you coming forward to discuss the feelings you had. You could save another woman from ignoring the signs. God bless you and your family!

She does Pilates and with that body must eat right. What the heck?!?!?

I had 2 stents in my leg a few years ago and two in my heart last July , so I know what you are going through. Speedy recovery.

yes, that is vaccine related.

‘Live with Kelly and Mark’ Scores Most-Watched Week of Syndicated Talk Shows in 2 Years; Delivers Strongest Week in Nearly 3 Years

In another case of soap alums doing great things, come news that former All My Children stars and real-life marrieds Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley) and Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo) are having a great ride together as on-screen co-hosts of the syndicated morning series, Live with Kelly and Mark.

New numbers were just released by ABC that share that during the week of January 15-19 2024: Live with Kelly and Mark hit series highs in Households (1.81 rating) and Total Viewers (2.673 million). Interestingly enough, former GH star, Rick Springfield (ex-Noah Drake) appeared on the show that week performing with friend and musician, Richard Marx.)

But there is more good news: Live with Kelly and Mark delivered the franchise’s strongest week in nearly 3 years in both Households and Total Viewers, as well as double-digit week-to-week increases in key demos over the last three weeks.

With 2.673 million Total Viewers, ‘Live’ delivered the most-watched week of any syndicated talk show in 2 years ( since Dr. Phil second week of January in 2022).

In even more solid gains for this ratings report: the talker stood as the week’s top  daytime talk show in Households (1.81 rating) and Total Viewers (2.673 million). ‘Live’ also ranked as the No. 1 entertainment talk show of the week across all key Nielsen measures, topping all daytime and late-night entertainment talk shows.

Overall the Live with Kelly and Mark is up 4%  from the the previous year averaging roughly 2.4M viewers across all of its episodes. ‘Live’ also stands as the season’s No. 1 entertainment talk show across all key Nielsen measures.

Consuleos arrived officially on the season on April 17th 2022 taking over for the departing Ryan Seacrest to co-host the show with Ripa. While many voiced concerns that the on-screen and off-screen coupling might make for lower ratings if they were not entertaining, just the opposite has happened, the series seems in a very healthy place; given the constant downturn in linear ratings and viewership in daytime TV.

Are you enjoying Kelly and Mark as co-hosts compared to Kelly’s other co-hosts through the years? Comment below.
