Former All My Children star, Terri Ivens (Ex-Simone Torres) joins the ranks of well-known soap stars who comprise the cast of All My Children’s current Supervising Producer, Sonia Blangiardo and her upcoming project and series Tainted Dreams for her NYC Brand Productions!

According to Blangiardo, “Ivens will play the role of ‘Kassandra Bentley,’ an in your- face, manipulative actress who stars in Tainted Dreams soap within the soap, “Painted Dreams”.

Alicia Minshew (Kendall, AMC) who is already been previously announced will play ‘Angelica Caruso,’  “Painted Dreams” senior producer who is stuck trying to deal with all the backstage chaos actors like Iven’s ‘Kassandra’ leave in their wake.

I miss Alicia playing Zach’s paramour in AMC – loved them. Trying hard to be happy for her because she’s amazing.

You and me both. I love Zach and Kendall too. I hope AMC can make room for Alicia and that she still wants to do AMC. In the meantime, I’m very happy Alicia will be on Tainted Dreams with her good pal Terri and others. At least Alicia lives in NY, will be working on TD in NY, while AMC films in CT. She’s on the right coast, at least. (Trying to stay hopeful and find the silver lining here…)

Yes – I’m so happy I get to see AMC and I’ve wondered about Alicia – I thought maybe she was on Broadway or happy to raise her child…but I’ll definitely check out Tainted Dreams, I’m presuming it will be available in some form, yes?
The silver lining, I think maybe, is that we have these people back in our lives in some new and experimental and progressive fashion..that’s so much better than two years ago! Thanks very much for you reply and the info. L

I think the cast so far is promising. Using actors and actresses from multiple soaps is a brilliant way to utilize aspiring talent. When is the debut of Tainted Dreams? I especially like Alicia Minshew, Terri Ivens and Walt Willey. I would love to see Rebecca Budig (Greenlee) and Reva and Josh (The Guiding Light) back in action once again. I will watch Tainted Dreams as the line-up so far is great.

I like Sandy’s comments and am looking forward to Tainted Dreams. I like the fact that a soap will be done in NY as many great soap actors still have NY as their home base. When will it debut and will it be on television or on the net?

I am excited that so many talented actors with soap opera experience were hired for this new show! MIchael Park & Trent Dawson, from ATWT and Robert Newman & Kim Zimmer from GL would be great additions to this show. Michael or Robert would be great as Ethan Washington. Trent would be great as Eddy Parish. Maybe Kim could play Courtney Parish. Just some ideas! 🙂

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.

Chadwick Boseman, ‘Black Panther’ Star and the Original Reggie On AMC, Dies At 43

In just heartbreaking news in an already dismal 2020, one of the brightest motion picture stars, Chadwick Boseman has died at the age of 43.

Boseman was battling colon cancer for the last four years of his life.  According to his rep, Boseman was diagnosed in 2016 with stage 3 colon cancer and his battle continued as it progressed to stage 4

Chadwick passed away with his wife and family by his side in his home.   In a shocking revelation, all of the movie performances in the last four years he has filmed were done in between chemotherapy and countless surgery.

Boseman is best known for his groundbreaking role as King T’Challa  in Black Panther.   His performance was the first ever Marvel Studio movie headlined by a black actor.  The film was nominated for an Academy Award.   He first appeared as the character in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

Most recently, Chadwick appeared in the Spike Lee’s Vietnam War drama Da 5 Bloods, and this year he’s due to appear opposite Viola Davis Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” the film adaptation of the August Wilson play.  The actor starred in other films, including playing James Brown in Get On Up and Jackie Robinson in 42,  and the lead role in Marshall.

However, Boseman actually got his start on All My Children when he was the original actor cast in the role of Reggie Porter.  He appeared on the soap for only one week before the role was recast with none other than Michael B. Jordan, and their paths could eventually cross years later on multiple film projects.

In an interview in 2019, Boseman revealed what led him to be fired from All My Children stating:  “When I got it (the part), I was like, ‘This is not part of my manifesto. This is not part of what I want to do. How can I make it work?’ Because with a soap opera, you don’t know the full scope of what’s gonna happen — you don’t know where they’re gonna take the character, because they don’t always know where the character is going. And because of that, there’s possibly room for me to adjust this and change it and make it so it’s stereotypical on the page but not on the screen.”

For Boseman had issues with how Reggie was portrayed and how it was written with racial stereotypes.  In story, Reggie was a young gang member who was adopted by Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and her husband, Jackson Montgomery (Walt Willey). “I remember going home and thinking, ‘Do I say something to them about this? Do I just do it?’ And I couldn’t just do it. “I had to voice my opinions and put my stamp on it. And the good thing about it was, it changed it a little bit for Michael B. Jordan.”  Apparently the producers told Boseman he was too much trouble but took some of his suggestions on the role moving forward.
