I was sorry Erika Slezak didn’t win her 7th Emmy, and I was furious at the way she was treated in that “tribute” that was mostly Susan Lucci patting herself on the back. At the very least, the two actresses should have come out together and had equal time. Mathison made it worse, shouldn’t even have been out there unless another OLTL actor came out. And then he took Erika Slezak’s line about the fans! I doubt it was purposeful, but it was one last slap in the face for ES and the OLTL fans. Not only was OLTL far superior to AMC in recent years, and the ratings were much higher. The only good thing was that ES got much more enthusiastic applause from the audience than Lucci. Have nothing against Susan Lucci. It was the horrible unbalance of the “tribute” that angered me.

Very well said and accurate. It was appalling. Few, if any, watching could think otherwise.

I am still shaking my head about the mess they call a tribute it was a lets all get down on our knees and praise susan lucci for her portrayal of ericka kane, Seriously susan I can name many, many, more characters on all my children who were better than you, how self centered that woman is, she carried on like it was only about her, News flash Susan Lucci you can’t act, the best actress was on your left that’s why she won 6 emmys. and by the way her name is ERICKA SLEZAK, IN CASE YOU DIDN’T KNOW, THE BEST ACTRESS IN DAYTIME, PUT HER IN PRIME PUT HER ON ANY TIME, BEST ACTRESS EVER, And who ever gave out those awards, is an ass who does not watch soaps.

Listened to your comments about video clips, and I don’t understand how there was any excuse not to have clips of OLTL when high quality montages, such as the one below, have been available on YouTube for months:

because the show could not secure the rights from ABC to show the clips – they put this together in about 2 weeks.

I don’t doubt what you are saying, but I don’t get it. Video clips, like the one I linked, are all over YouTube. So what if HLN had shown them? What’s Disney/ABC going to do? Sue HLN for their use when it promoted Disney/ABC? Isn’t the press allowed to use images and videos when discussing shows? Disney/ABC should have done nothing and been grateful for the free promotion. Litigation would have been stupid.

All My Children Alum Christopher Lawford Dead At 63

Sad news to report this Wednesday.  Christopher Lawford, best known to soap fans as Charlie Brent on All My Children from 1992-95, as well in the role of Senator Jordan on General Hospital in 2004, passed away at age 63.

Lawford who is the son of the actor Peter Lawford, and Patricia Kennedy, and whose uncles were Ted, Robert and President John F. Kennedy apparently died at a Yoga Studio on Tuesday night during a health emergency according to a report from TMZ.

As of now, it is being reported that Christopher’s death appears to be from “natural causes.” The coroner is performing an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death.

Christopher had battled addiction in his life back in the 70’s and 80’s.  The actor was also a New York Times best selling author with his book, ‘Symptoms of Withdrawal.’

Being the nephew of John F. Kennedy, Lawford also spent time in the political arena with staff positions with The Democratic National Committee, and campaigns whether it be at the national, state, or local level

Lawford’s cousin Kerry Kennedy announced his death on social media.

Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica Kane), Lawford’s co-star on All My Children, shared her thoughts on Instagram at his passing: “Such very sad news that wonderful Chris Lawford has passed away. Chris was so great to work with—always prepared and always with a smile and an ease about him. He was warm and charming whether on set at AMC—or working hard for his charity. My deepest sympathy to his family. RIP, Chris”

Morgan Fairchild And Soap Notables Filming New LGBTQ Series ‘Mélange’

Over the next several days in New York, some very familiar faces to daytime soap fans are busy filming episodes of a new series entitled Melange, which stars Morgan Fairchild (most recently ex-Angelica, DAYS).

The series is set against the backdrop of a historic New York City gay bar named “Melange”, and the fight for ownership over it, when it’s proprietor has suddenly and mysteriously died.  Melange will explore themes of sexuality, immigration, addiction, power, and inclusion.

Guiding Light’s Robert Newman, All My Children’s Darnell Williams, One Life to Live’s Scott Evans ,  Kristen Alderson, Ilene Kristen, and David A. Gregory are some of the daytime faves tapped for roles in the series, which is said to be a half-hour drama.

One Life to Live & All My Children Reunion Event Photo Gallery

Over the weekend, actors who appeared on two beloved legacy soap operas: All My Children and One Life to Live took part in a reunion event held over GH Fan Club Weekend.  And while the fans in attendance were excited to see some of their favorites, it was the former cast members themselves getting to see their former co-stars for the first time in years which made the event all the more touching.

Then, in big surprise to the attendees, none other than former One Life to Live star, Nathan Fillion showed up to give hugs to his former castmates including: Erin Torpey (Ex-Jessica), and James (Ex-Max) and Kassie DePaiva (Ex-Blair), among others.  Fillion, who has gone on to primetime success with his show Castle, and his upcoming new series on ABC, The Rookie, has never forgotten his beginnings in show business as Joe Buchanan!  Who can forget his on-screen affair with Robin Strasser’s Dorian, which sent Viki (Erika Slezak) into orbit!

Kassie DePaiva (now Eve on DAYS) told Michael Fairman TV on Fillion’s appearance that she had reached out to him to let him know about the event: “I knew the fans would love it.  He is very proud of his roots.”

When asked about seeing the original Blair, Mia Korf, at the same event whom she had never met, Kassie said, “I went, ‘There’s the real Blair,” but it was really nice meeting her.  You know with One Life to Live actors, even if you didn’t work with somebody there is such a camaraderie, which makes this show so special.”

All My Children fans were thrilled to see appearances by Rebecca Budig (Ex-Greenlee), Vincent Irizarry (Ex-David), Jordi Vilasuso, who will soon be seen in his new role on Y&R, and played Dr, Griffin Castillo in Pine Valley, and many more.

Check out our photo gallery of some of the past cast from both AMC and OLTL who showed up to say “hello again” to each other and the fans below.  Then, let us know if it makes you miss Pine Valley and Llanview all the more in the comment section, and which photo you liked the most!
