The one and only Susan Lucci filled TV Guide in this evening on the final moments of taping the final network television scenes of All My Children!

Lucci stated, “It just didn’t seem real. Walking out on to the set for my first scene yesterday morning, I have to say, I started to feel it, I had to rein my emotions back in because I had to work … but the setting was spectacular! Perfect for the last day of shooting. There are a lot of feelings. There’s pride and excitement and gratitude and joy and celebration — and still a cloud over us because we don’t know.” (Lucci referring to how things will work out with the Prospect Park online move and deals with the actors and the crew.)

The soap legend went on to say that the upcoming AMC final network television reported cliffhanger is going to be very exciting!  “Oh, I think it’s spectacular! To me, knowing how Agnes writes, it was not shocking that she would do that. Like any great novel, when you put it down you say, ‘Well, then what?’ I knew she wouldn’t tie it up in a neat bow, and she really didn’t. There are several cliff-hangers.”

As far as if Lucci will seal the deal with Prospect Park she had this to offer, “I can only say that we’re in conversations. We are in conversations. That’s where we are  My heart is there. I think it’s a very, very exciting possibility. I think that Prospect Park, the men involved there, have a wonderful, successful track record … It could be very exciting, especially with Agnes and Lorraine.”

She’s a class act!! I have stuck with this show from the beginning when I was 5 years old (yup, watched it with Mom and Grandma). I was mesmerized by Erica and couldn’t give it up. Even when I was in college classes and couldn’t tape it, and then when I didn’t have a VCR, I still managed to keep up with what was going on. The show is in my blood and I will keep with it once it moves online and hopefully to a cable channel. Susan’s comments give me hope that she’s giving PP serious consideration and that she trusts they will do a good job, so hopefully when we tune in January 16th, she and many other of the greats on this show will be there. Thank you AMC (not ABC) for 41 years of joy.

Yes, Susan Lucci is a class act. I am glad she penned that autobiography as it really provided layers to a woman who is among the very few actors, writers and creatives who have given daytime its foundation, its legitimacy. Yes, Erica Kane/AMC is her job but she has made it a commitment. Daytimers — including audiences — exhibit such loyalty, and that quality seems rarer in all areas of life and work. I am glad to read Susan Lucci is considering the online AMC and I hope there is a place for her there. My real wish is that AMC and everyone in Pine Valley would remain on the map at 1 PM weekdays on ABC, but that alas, will not come to pass.

I am Susan Lucci’s most dedicated and loyal fan. I have idolized her from the very beginning of AMC. I just adore her which has kept me watching her for over 41 years. I just pray that she stays with AMC online! Without Susan, I don’t think that AMC can possibly survive. She is AMC! I met Susan at the AMC fanclub event in July in LA, and she is just absolutely charming and beautiful. It was a thrill to meet her in person and a dream come true for me to meet my idol. She is most definitely a class act and my favorite actress!

I have been a fan since the pilot and first eposide!! I remember Susan L. and Tara sitting in front of the fireplace cried about Jeff going to the war! I just believe that AMC is going to be gone and I truly believe that things could have been worked out – if the CEO and others – including a small cut -would take a pay cut and/or the bonuses – they could afford to get AMC to stay on and provide their talents that the fans tune in each and every week-days and the Sunday late nite marathon! LISTEN TO THE FANS AND GET YOUR PRIORITIES STRAIGHT! I will, along with many, NOT what a new getting fit and healthy,cooking,talk,and God knows – all of any kind of a reality show – I watch TV mainly to excape the reality of the world not to watch the non- but actually not,scripted, reality!!
Thank you AMC and hope that the fat lady (fat cats) will come to their senses!

I hope Lucci stays with AMC when it moves online. Erica is my favorite character. AMC would be boring without her. She adds a lot of pizzazz to the show.

Kelly Ripa Reveals How Her Son Chose NYU Due To The Consuelos Connection To Former Soap EP/ Director, Chris Goutman

Last week on an episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan, the former star of All My Children, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) told Ryan Seacrest how a chance meeting when her son, Michael was deciding where to go to college; between her, Michael, and Chris Goutman (Ex-Executive Producer As the World Turns and former director, All My Children) changed the course of Michael’s creative and academic path.

Turns out that Goutman is now working over at NYU’s Tisch School for the Arts as an assistant professor and academic director.

During their banter on the talk show, Kelly revealed that Goutman directed the screen-test that landed Mark Consuelos the role of Mateo on All My Children, and thus how Ripa met her real-live enduring lovematch.

Ripa explained that Michael was waiting for a sign as to which college to go to as he liked most of the places he saw.  Then came the sign as Ripa explained to Seacrest: “We’re walking down the hallway and I hear a voice I know say, ‘Consuelos!’ “He turns around and I see Chris Goutman, who was our director at All My Children … I worked with him for 11 years.”

Ripa says Chris then expressed to Michael: “You have to come here, because I am the reason you literally exist.”

Ripa is reportedly also working on a film for the class, as well.  Watch what Kelly shared below.
