The Chandler Media Gala really kicked it into high gear with all new episodes of All My Children released on Soap Monday on Hulu and iTunes! TOLN released episodes #52 and #53 and there was plenty of action and story unfolding that has building for several months!

In addition to the stories, there were some guest spot appearances! First, singer/songwriter Jason Derulo performed his hit single, The Other Side in front of Pine Valley’s finest!  Later, CNN’s Jake Tapper popped in to the Chandler Mansion to get a word with Brooke (Julia Barr) about her comments on JR (Ryan Bittle) losing his temper while his media presentation was to be shown at the gala! Only it did not play, it malfunctioned! Thanks for that should go to the conniving Dr. Hayward (Vincent Irizarry). Tapper played the fictional and aggressive newsman, Spencer Phillips!

Then, fans of AMC got a glimpse again of David Canary as Adam Chandler, who just had a few lines and shared a brief kiss with Brooke, before his character was ushered out and apparently was sent on a business trip, so he missed the rest of the gala!  Now it looks like it’s time for Dimiti (Michael Nader) to make his move on Brooke, whom he clearly wants all to himself!

Tad’s name was mentioned during the Gala conversation as well, by Cara (Lindsay Hartley) and Dixie (Cady McClain), so that is always a good sign that the powers-that-be are thinking about him and hoping someday Michael E. Knight might return to the show!

But the big moments occurred at the end of episode #50 ,when a drunken Jesse (Darnell Williams) caught his wife Angie (Debbi Morgan) dancing with David at the gala! And … JR lashed out at Cara, whom he later shared an awkward kiss with, when she ran away from him! But the big bombshell is … David found Oliver on the floor after he ate what appeared to be an M&M! Will David unknowingly save his bio-son?

Make sure to check out the episodes for all this above and much more! Then, let us know what moments did you enjoy the most? What was the biggest twist? Who are you rooting for get together? AJ and Miranda? Celia and Pete? JR and Cara? Dr Anders and Dixie? Jessie and Angie, or Angie and David? Comment below after watching a few clips from the episodes with David and Jesse’s confrontation at the Gala, and Jason Derulo’s performance!

This week’s episodes were both excellent, especially #53! I was so glad Adam returned if only for a few scenes. It also was a good showcase for why Colby feels so abandoned when Adam left again without even saying goodbye to her. That said, I was glad to see Celia fight back and pour water over Colby’s head after the pie attack. The best part, though, was the growing closeness between David & Angie and how it made Jesse go ballistic. Even if nothing romantic happens, Angie’s starting to open up more to David about her feelings when her husband… Read more »

I co-sign that 100%! I am really enjoying AMC right now and I haven’t felt that way about a soap in a long, long time.

It seems things are improving for the show. I am not a fan of Angie and Jesse. Jesse is acting a mad man. The actor is overacting, he is very annoying to watch.

David is up to his old tricks! I believe more people are watching both soaps than is reported by Neilson ratings.

AMC is getting better. When AJ and Miranda are together I feel like I am watching a Disney movie where they are going to grow whiskers and then scurry away to nibble on cheese. I am having a very hard time getting use to them as well as Jane. I am still watching reruns of the original AMC as it winds down again. I sure do miss these actors. Watching Ryan, Greenlee, Liza, Amanda,Jake, Krystal, JR, Tad, etc. I still cry a little bit knowing it is coming to the end. Sure hope some of these actors come back. However,… Read more »

All My Children Alum Ben Jörgensen Reportedly Dead At 51

According to his former All My Children castmate, Brian Gaskill. there is sad news in the soap world today.  Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin on All My Children and Chris on As the World Turns passed away on Tuesday at the age of 51, apparently via suicide, although unconfirmed as to his cause of death.

Gaskill, who played Bobby Warner while in Pine Valley shared via his Instagram:  “Sad news to report. Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin Sheffield on All My Children has past away at 51 years old.  My understanding is it was suicide.  I have heard he suffered from Bipolar disorder but as I have not spoke to him in years I do not know all the details. I just want to remember the good times we had on the set of All My Children 24 years ago. He was a good guy and had the courage to play a gay teenager on tv back when it was nowhere near as common to have representation as it is today. He was part of an award winning storyline…but mostly we just had some good times back then…my condolences go out to his friends and family. Please everybody hang in there and reach out for help if you need it. ”

Since the time of Brian’s posting, friends, colleagues and fans have been posting tributes and condolences on the actor’s Facebook page.  You can view that here.

 

In this heartbreaking photo below from Steven Bergman, during his time on As the World Turns, Ben is pictured with the late Nathaniel Marston, as well as Jaime Nicole Dudney and Terri Conn.

On All My Children, Ben was part of the important social issue storyline brought into the ABC legacy soap opera by the iconic Agnes Nixon, who was always trying to move the needle forward in daytime, as the character of Kevin was a gay high school student facing bullying, ridicule and discrimination for his sexuality.

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.
