On today’s all-new episodes for the week of All My Children on Hulu and iTunes, the relationship status between Kendall (Thorsten Kaye)  and Zach is explored deeper with the return of Alicia Minshew (Kendall) in a some key scenes with her long-time on-screen sister, Eden Riegel (Bianca).

In those scenes, we learn somewhat what is ailing Kendall and why Bianca is there tending to her.  We also see how badly Bianca feels for her daughter Miranda, because Miranda is picked on over her mom being gay.  One of the more telling moments is when Bianca tells Kendall she should call Zach and tell him what is going on with her health.  Kendall refuses to call Zach saying they have been over for years.

Meanwhile, sexual chemistry comes to a boiling point, when Zach kisses Lea (Paula Garces) and it looks as if the two are going to have sex right in Lea’s office.  We come to learn later that Lea put on the brakes, because she still feels that Zach has feelings for Kendall, even though Zach admit he rarely communicates with Kendall unless its about their children.  Lea points out that Zach is still wearing his wedding ring, and when he is ready to move on, she will know.

So AMC fans, where you happy to see Kendall on the canvas?  Do you hope Alicia Minshew can come back on a more recurring basis to play out this storyline?  Do you want Zach to move on with Lea at this point, and you don’t care anymore if Zendall could reunite? Weigh-in and watch this week’s All My Children after the jump!

Am glad to see both Kendall and Bianca back – now they just need to add Erica Kane to the mix and maybe the show will regain some of the magic it used to have.
Would be nice if Alicia Minshew could return even on a semi-regular basis as Kendall – Kendall can be a real pain the rear but the show needs something, every actor does their best to breathe life into rather mundane scripts, but maybe that will start to change.

She told me she would be coming on in July, & that she would love to go back for good. I am a friend/fan who would love her to be happy! For now, I can go to Prohibition in the city & say hello. She is as beautiful as she is friendly!

Welcome back Kendall, you were missed. Kendall and Zach belong together with all of life’s ups-and-downs. Lea doesn’t have that chemistry nor personality to belong with Zach. Lea is too much of a “glass half empty” person. Kendall please come back for more than just a cameo appearance. Maybe you will find you miss being with the AMC family. One can only hope.

It will be fun to see Kendall once again, but I have never been into that character, it is all about the hair lol
That hair style has not budged in a decades, the make-up department needs to give her a a more prestige, look.. She needs a new hair style, even tho her hair is beautiful she needs an upgrade..
anyways, it will be fun to see her..

I have to disagree, Michael. There’s no sexual tension boiling over with Zach and Lea, no matter how the AMC spin machine tries to sell it. He was looking for a little nookie in the police station with his bodyguard as a way of celebrating charges being dropped, which made me think Zach resembled a sailor on shore leave rather than half of Always, Only You, but this is what AMC wants to promote. As for Kendall, I would like her to return to AMC for more than a 2 minute scene but only if AMC reverses direction here and… Read more »

amazing to see AM back as Kendall, gave the show some well needed heart. She belongs in Pine Valley. Her presence is so badly missed right now, but no where greater than in Zach’s live. It’s terrible to see what they’ve done to Zendall, and how much they have isolated Zach away from his family and everything we once knew to be true about him. He clearly still loves his wife. Once you’ve seen a love story play out the way Zendall’s did, its hard enough to see it be torn down by writers who don’t understand history, but its… Read more »

You know, if I saw sexual chemistry between Zach and lea, I’d say it. I really would. But I don’t. It feels manufactured to me instead of an organic reaction. In all honesty, the kiss was just something to get through, not enjoy. I’m waiting for Zach and Kendall to reunite. Please, please bring back AM’s Kendall. Reunite her with the Mahn she loves, and get rid of this unsatisfying story/relationship Zach is stuck in. I want to anticipate seeing him on screen again, not wait for it to be over. My apologies to Paula Garces, but her character is… Read more »

I loved that Kendall returned even if it was only for a brief cameo. I hope Prospect Park is doing all they can, and more to bring Kendall back on a regular basis. Her absence leaves a huge hole on the Pine Valley canvas. Miranda needs her aunt Kendall who shares a common background, that of being a child of rape, to show her how to be a survivor and help her get past her history and learn that it’s who she is and not who her father was or how she came to be that makes her a strong… Read more »

Seeing Alicia Minshew again was a breath of fresh air! It is my hope that Ms. Minshew can return on a full-time basis. All My Children needs feisty, take-no-prisoners Kendall Hart Slater back on canvas now! As a viewer, I cannot reconcile what the audience was shown at the end of ABC’s version and the new Prospect Park version. Team Slater (Zach, Kendall, Spike and Ian) were happier than ever and now with a few poorly-written lines of dialog Mr. and Mrs. Slater have been “done for years.” This after the supercouple have been through nearly every obstacle possible, even… Read more »

“Mr. Kaye brought Zach Slater to life years ago with wonderfully-nuanced acting choices and I do not recognize him right now.”

I so agree with you. I feel like this is a new Zach, and I don’t like him. Bring back Kendall so she can straighten him out! Alicia Minshew, we need you!

I’ll take Alicia Minshew and Kendall as much as I can get them, but I certainly hope that means a MUCH more recurring, even regular, basis. Seeing her today was wonderful, but not nearly enough. And yes, I want her and Zach to reunite. Their story is nowhere near finished, and they obviously still love each other very deeply.

Was happy to see Kendall /Alicia. But I want more than just a cameo. I want her back permanently and reunited with Zach. They are the reason I started to watch AMC . I miss seeing seeing family time with Spike and Ian. I am never going to believe that Zach is ok with not seeing the boys. I don’t believe for one minute that Kendall would ok with it either. This is not the Zach and Kendall I remember and I am hoping that there will be changes made to rectify this.

I NEVER got the appeal of Zach And Kendall whatsoever. They were never shown falling in love, and the media hailed them as a supercouple before they ever even were one. I love Alicia and Kendall, but I always preferred her with Ryan. Even Aidan before the show trashed his character for no reason. I would rather have Kendall on the show than Zach. Much like Michael Easton and his multiple ABC characters who go nowhere, that‘s how I view Thorsten and his rotating ABC roles. It‘s not that I mind his acting, I just don‘t “get“ the point or… Read more »

I’m surprised that anyone could not see Zendall falling in love. I truly felt they had the best slow burn in soap history –one that had me rushing home each day so excited to see what Zendall would do next . I totally respect your opinion but wish you could have enjoyed that amazing story line like I did

I had to scratch my head over this one, too. They spent most of 2005 falling in love and trying to fight it. Their chemistry was–and still is–off the charts. It was one of those love stories that had me hating Fridays. I get that Zach and Kendall isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but AMC definitely showed the two of them falling in love.

Yes they did I agree! I loved watching them falling in love and trying to say that it was nothing more than a “business arrangement”! Thorston and Alicia knock it out of the ball park as Mr and Mrs Zach Slater!! LOVE THEM!!! Not quite sure where she got his rotating roles on ABC he only played 2 characters for “ABC” Patrick Thornhart and Zach Slater, 2 characters completely different from each other and IMHO Zach is a WAY BETTER character than Boring OLD Patrick LMAO!

Great to see Alicia, Kendall Slater has been missed. Sorry, I am not seeing any type of chemistry between Zach and lee. She is boring and TK looks bored.
I hope PP can get Alicia back full time.

Definitely glad to see Alicia and want her back in Pine Valley reunited with Zach. Soaps are defined by Supercouples and none better than Zendall. I’ll start clicking on once Zendall is together again. Until then I’m not interested in watching Zach in the current storyline.

I’ll be honest, I tuned AMC off the day after the first episode aired of the new show. It was not the AMC that I remember and I had little interest in watching. I’ve kept up with summaries of the shows to see if anything interested me….it hasn’t. What will? A permanent return of Alicia Minshew as Kendall and the revelation that this separation between Zach and Kendall is bogus. Zach’s family means the world to him. In no way shape or form would he chose the casinos over them. At the end of AMC on ABC, we saw Zach… Read more »

AMC needs Alicia back full time and not just that small cameo that was shown. AMC is just not the same without Kendall in it. As for Zach having chemistry with Lea there is none. No matter how much the writers try to push Lea and Zach as a couple it just not going to work. Heck a blow up doll has more brains and life in it than the character Lea. She makes me turn off the show whenever she is on. AMC needs to get Zendall back together again. Zendall is the only couple that was in the… Read more »

Zach has 1000x more chemistry with Lea than he ever did with Kendall! For the last several years on ABC, Zach looked bored in that forced pairing. I’m glad Alicia made her appearance to explain Bianca’s absence and now Kendall can remain off the canvas while Zach moves on with Lea. I do hope Erica returns around the time Miranda learns of her paternity, though, so we can see how the Erica/Kendall relationship shaped Bianca’s decisions and hopefully that will play out in contrast to Cassandra most likely having an abortion in a similar circumstance. Only on soaps can this… Read more »

I was very happy to see Alicia Minshew (as brief as it was) playing our Kendall Hart Slater. AMC needs Alicia/Kendall back and reunited with Zach (and of course the boys). The chemistry between Thorsten and Alicia is amazing, and cannot be duplicated with anyone currently trying to play a new love interest for him. I was very disappointed that they are divorced (I had so hoped it was a ruse to keep his family safe), so hopefully the new writers will have them back together very soon. Zach would never stay away from his boys, let alone Kendall (and… Read more »

I loved seeing Kendall again. I can’t wait for her to sign on so I can see her back full time.
I can’t stand Zach with Lea. They have no chemistry together. It’s so obvious Zach is still in love with Kendall and always will be, and she with him.

It’s time to turn this show a round before we lose all viewers.

Where are the Castillos? Where is Jordi? You just dropped that ball abruptly. This is some team of writers. Did you pull them in off a picket line or what. Maybe they came from where old writers go to die. They are most definitely not of the caliber that AMC writers were when they were on TV. Not even the 2nd team. Just a bunch of rookies trying to find their way.

The only good thing about the new AMC is the veteran actors. They are great! BUT. the rest is so disappointing! Bad casting. Bad acting. And most of all bad writers. I am an avid fan and was fortunate enough to record 580 episodes of the last 3 years. I watch them instead of the new one. Hate the raw edges and bad language. Worst casting is Colby! WHAT WERE THEY THINKING? They brought her back as a mean diva that looks like a street walker with all that ugly hair. Natalie Hall was fab in every way for that… Read more »

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.

Share your thoughts and condolences on the passing of Chadwick Boseman via the comment section below.

Watch below, when Chadwick speaks at the Howard University commencement in which he shared to the graduating students about losing his gig on All My Children(Thanks to Renee for this)
