Susan Lucci Set For A Return To Hot in Cleveland!

Susan Lucci is headed back to meet up with her old nemesis Victoria Chase (Wendie Malick) on an all new episode of TV Land’s  Hot in Cleveland during its fifth season. Viewers who have seen this hilarious on-going gag in four other episodes during the series run know that Lucci plays a ‘”version” of herself in it.

According to The Wrap, “On the episode titled “The Undead,” Lucci speaks on Victoria’s behalf at Victoria’s fake funeral, getting the last laugh in their rivalry.” Season five of Hot in Cleveland will begin in spring of 2014!

So Susan has been very busy with Devious Maids, Hot in Cleveland, Deadly Affairs and countless other projects!  Of course, All My Children fans keep wondering if she will ever return to the online series of the iconic soap as Erika Kane?  But from the looks of her schedule, doesn’t seem like it, does it?    Will you be checking out La Lucci on Hot in Cleveland?

For the time being, it doesn’t seem likely that Susan is dying to breathe life back into the iconic ERICA KANE on ALL MY CHILDREN. Prospect Park has kept us all in the dark as to whether or not the show will even be back – naturally, I hope that it WILL be back, but the rumors were flying that October 21st was the scheduled date for production of “Season 2” of All My Children and here we are in October, yet not one actor has tweeted anything about receiving a script or production schedule or anything at all. So,… Read more »

I agree Ted. Especially with the part about PP jerking everyone around. I’ll probably be canceling my Hulu+ account very soon! I only got it to watch AMC/OLTL and if they’re not coming back, I don’t need to spend the money.

I also didn’t realize that when these soaps went to PP/online, they would be limited to “seasons” like this. Silly me, I thought they would be on 4 days a week, 52 weeks a year.

I Agree! PP originally said there would be no change, 5 one hour episodes a week. So why no news from anybody, like here, about OLTL or AMC coming back or in production? I don’t really care about HIC or DWTS, sorry. IMHO PP should grow up and an get on with producing OLTL. Forget the lawsuit and just make the show. I don’t get why they can’t, or won’t. Seems lame. Yes ABC screwed PP but now PP is screwing over the fans and themselves. I read the court papers and IMO I can’t see anyone taking this lawsuit… Read more »

Haven’t heard any news about OLTL dispute lately…What is going on with that I wonder? I use to like Ms. Lucci on AMC when she was on. Not so much now..

I too plan on CANCELLING my Hulu Plus subscription – like many others, I only got it so that I could get All My Children and I figured I would watch One Life as well, since they are both shortened versions on-line. Maybe it would send a message to Hulu Plus and Prospect Park that the fans are annoyed. I am tired of this nonsense, and weary of fans saying “be grateful for what we’ve got, our soaps are back” attitude. One Life to Live is in such precarious limbo that even when it does come back there’s no way… Read more »

Yep, Hulu Plus was canceled weeks ago. Once it seemed like neither show was going to go back into production in the foreseeable future I dumped it. As a OLTL fan from day one I am truly saddened that PP was unable, for whatever myriad of reasons, to continue with the show. If they ever do go back into production I will re-up Hulu,,,unless they decide on another venue for it. Personally, I had lost interest in AMC years ago and was never a big Susan Lucci fan so, while I wish her well, her return or not will not… Read more »

Susan is so funny on Hot in Cleveland. Not sure why PP even bothered to pick up the soaps. They are obviously not able to handle them. I will continue to watch if they come back. I blame ABC for all this mess. I will continue my boycott of ABC because it makes me feel better to do so, not because I think it makes a difference. I am moving on and I figure I will get an email if AMC and OLTL come back. I figure by the time PP starts up again ,more actors will have other commitments… Read more »

PP really has been playing games and this frivolous law suit. They should have continued OLTL and AMC if they wanted to truly keep up the momentum. I wonder if the actors are truly getting concerned because if my understanding is correct their salaries were pretty paltry to start with online so let’s say they got $1000 a show and they got 2.5 to three shows week but now it is half that. You can see while they aren’t starving compared to some people that isn’t a lot of money. As for Susan Lucci I think PP has been horrible… Read more »

All My Children and Guiding Light Vet, Gil Rogers Passes Away

Gil Rogers, who played one of the all-time most dastardly villains in soaps on All My Children and was the on-screen father to the one and only Reva Shayne (Kim Zimmer) on Guiding Light, has died at age 87.

News came via his daughter, Amanda Rogers on her Facebook page, relating that Gil passed away on March 2nd.

The actor had played Tad (Michael E. Knight) and Jenny’s (Kim Delaney) father, Ray Gardner on All My Children from 1977-1978 making multiple appearance though 2001, then later as Hawk Shayne on Guiding Light from 1985-1992 making multiple appearance through 2009.

Gil also appeared on Another World, Search for Tomorrow and The Doctors.

In her post, Amanda wrote: “Gil Rogers died this morning. As you all know, my dad was awesome. He was my best friend, confidant, mentor and just an awesome dad. He came to pick me and  Charlotte Whitaker Zdanowski up at clubs at 2AM in our teens to keep us safe, and drank bourbon with me every day since moving out here 2 years ago. He was welcoming and kind, funny and gregarious, a shameless flirt and a fierce protector. He loved his dinners with grandkids and endured animated movies and discussions about pokemon. And I miss him so terribly already. He died in his sleep, without pain or fear. I am so grateful to have had such a great father and to have spent these past 2 years with him every day.”

Check out this vintage scene below from All My Children where Ray played by Rogers blows up the Martin house.

Now share your remembrances of Gil’s performances and along with condolences for his family in the comment section.

Kim Delaney on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “All They Have To Do Is Ask, and I’m There”

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.
