Monday Night is the season four premiere of Lifetime’s sudsy Devious Maids (9PMET/8PMCT), which co-stars Susan Lucci as Genevieve Delatour,  better known to daytime audiences as the one and only Erica Kane!

Throughout her 41 years as Pine Valley’s staple character, at one point Erica was involved in a romance with the younger Cameron Mathison (Ex-Ryan Lavery).

The two met up this time with Cameron in his ET gig as correspondent and her as the interviewee to relive some good ole days and to discuss the upcoming season of Devious Maids.

In the trailer for ‘Maids’, there is a scene where it is clear that Lucci is appearing naked reclining on a couch, but with strategically-placed props in the foreground. When Mathison asked how she felt doing something like that (Lucci is now 69), she answered, “It’s always just a lot of butterflies and preparation. You hope you did everything you’re supposed to do — lots of extra Pilates and not eating lunch. You know, all of that stuff.”

Lucci teased Mathison about when he was a soap newbie, and how the crew used to call Cameron “Snaps”, because he would have snaps on his shirts so he could quickly rip them off for all of his shirtless and bedroom scenes.

Later, Susan remembers just how great is was to play the iconic Erica when she told Mathison, “Erica Kane was such a juicy character. There was so much fun to be had playing her. In airports and things, people stop and say how much they really loved the show … The people still feel so affected by it, and it keeps me company in that respect.”

Watch Susan and Cameraon reunite on this ET interview after the jump. Then AMC fans let us know, what did you think when Ryan and Erica were paired in a burgeoning love story that got cut short? Will you be checking out Devious Maids season premiere tonight? Comment below!

Great interview!!! I have hopes that they will let Cameron audition to fill the seat at Live with his old costar Kelly Ripa!!! Werent their characters linked on AMC? I would be the two would have great on air personality and an old friendship that would be fun to watch! Just like this video- its great to see old friends get together and catch up

I agree. Cameron would be good on live. His personality and all he does would fit and suit the show. Also, he and Kelly would be a good pair with the types of personalities they have. He is an intelligent and nice guy to have on the show – not to mention his great looks! 🙂 Please know I really liked Michael, but now that he has chosen to move on I think Cameron would be a good replacement.

I liked Ryan and Erica as friends. Lovers not so much. I didn’t understand how Erica always wanted that abusive jerk with Kendall. Ryan in the later years was a better character. Too bad the show ended, I might have even started to like Ryan. Cam however was very sweet when I met him.

John, I agree. Seeing Cameron and Susan back together was wonderful. They were very cute together. I also agree that Cameron would be an AWESOME option to fill the empty chair at Live with Kelly. Although I feel Kelly frowns on her soap days! She acknowledges the many blessings AMC brought to her life, but she clearly acts as if she’s above those actors now! I recently watched where she said she hates watching her AMC scenes but enjoys watching FAITH AND HOPE!!! I was shocked! In my opinion her better work was totally done on AMC- not on that… Read more »

Kelly probably has a harder time watching her AMC character work because she was a “newbie” and she probably sees a lot of things she would act differently…more skilled perhaps at acting in Faith and Hope. Plus she showed up on AMC young and baby faced (chunky for her) and she has super slimmed down for a long time…so she probably sees an earlier body shape she doesn’t like as well as now.

I miss All My Children. Wish it were still on. It was a fun soap with Erica’s flamboyance, and all the other characters, etc. It was iconic. Seems none of the talk shows have been able to replace AMC. I find I never tune into the station now during the period when AMC/OLTL were on before I did. Seems to me they have lost even more. I understand that it is all about Revenue/Expenses/Profit, but they may have been able to figure out a way to sustain AMC by keeping costs down, and generating revenue. If fewer people tune in… Read more »

I still think Erica should pop in Port Charles and buy ElQ! The mansion, the compagny everything!! Maybe she was a long lost mistress of Alan or Edward!!! Imagine her going against Tracy and Monica!! Heck Luke could come back for a story with Erica!!

TONIGHT: All My Children’s Debbi Morgan and Darnell Williams Together Again on All-New Episode of ‘Our Kind of People’

The Fox drama, Our Kind of People (9 pm ET/8pm CT), will feature a reunion, of sorts, on tonight’s January 18th episode when Debbi Morgan (Ex-Angie, All My Children) once again shares screen-time with her former on-screen soap opera love, Darnell Williams (Ex-Jesse, All My Children).

While mum’s the word as to Williams role, we know that Debbi plays Angela’s Aunt Piggy on the series, and in last week’s installment, Piggy went to the police station to turn herself in for the murder of her ex-boyfriend years ago.  However, Darnell’s character could hold the key as to what really went down in the murder.

Debbi spoke to TV Line about acting again with Darnell: “We were shooting the scene when Darnell’s character walks through the door for the first time.  And it was the first time we see this character on the show, and I looked at him and shouted, ‘Jesse!’ The director had to yell cut and everyone fell out laughing. It was hilarious. I knew that wasn’t his name on Our Kind of People but I couldn’t help myself. We worked together for so many years as Angie and Jesse and that’s the first thing that came to my mind.”

For those who have not checked out Our Kind of People, it takes place in the aspirational world of Oak Bluffs on Martha’s Vineyard, a historical stronghold where the rich and powerful Black elite have come to play for over 50 years.

In story, strong-willed single mom Angela Vaughn (Ex-AMC star, Yaya Decosta) sets out to reclaim her family’s name and make an impact with her revolutionary hair care line that highlights the innate, natural beauty of Black women, but she soon discovers a dark secret about her own mother’s past that will turn her world upside-down and shake up this community forever. The show is a soapy, thrilling exploration of race and class in America and an unapologetic celebration of Black resilience and achievement.

The series is from writer and executive producer Karin Gist (Star, Grey’s Anatomy) and executive producer Lee Daniels (Empire, The United States Vs. Billie Holiday).

So, will you be watching Debbi and Darnell together on tonight’s Our Kind of People? Comment below.

Three-Time Daytime Emmy Winner, Cady McClain, Reveals She’s ‘Back On Set’ But On Which Show?

After her Instagram post earlier this week, fans of Cady McClain have been attempting to dissect her cryptic tease of a message. McClain, a three-time Daytime Emmy winner, shared the good news with fans that she is ‘back to work’, except she didn’t share which show or project she is working on … just yet!

In her post, McClain teased: “Back on set! Fun to be working again on such a terrific show! Can’t wait to be able to share the news with you all soon! Meantime, hoping you are all taking good care of yourselves. Sending hugs!! ”

Now, it could be Cady is working on a primetime show, not a daytime show, but we shall see.

She has previously appeared on The Young and the Restless and Days of our Lives of the four remaining daytime soaps.  On Y&R she played Kelly Andrews, and on DAYS, Jennifer Horton Deveraux.  And, as viewers of the NBC soap saw this week, Jennifer (in a short appearance by Melissa Reeves) returned to Salem with Jack (Matthew Ashford), only to tie-up loose ends over the holidays and exit the show.

Since DAYS still tapes months ahead, could McClain be returning there, or might she pop up on GH and B&B? The character of Kelly was killed-off of Y&R back in 2015.

Previously, Cady became soap-famous for her roles as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children and Rosanna Cabot on As the World Turns.

Share your thoughts on which show you hope Cady is working on, whether, primetime, daytime, or a streaming series, in the comment section below.
