Susan Lucci spent four decades on ABC’s All My Children before its cancellation back in 2011. While with ABC Daytime she along with GH’s Tony Geary (Luke Spencer) and OLTL’s Erika Slezak (Viki) were the iconic faces of the network’s soap line-up.

Now with fans gearing up to see Geary’s final performance in the role of Luke Spencer on the July 27th episode of General Hospital, it’s Susan’s turn to honor and pay tribute to Tony in this recently posted #FarewellTony video from the folks at GH.

As for Susan, the current Devious Maids star was just named a Disney Legend this past week! The honor for The Disney Legends Awards pay tribute to individuals whose work has made a significant contribution to The Walt Disney Company, and Susan certainly made Erica Kane a household name! Lucci, along with George Lucas, Disney Animator Andreas Deja, and composer Danny Elfman will receive their honors at the upcoming D23 Expo in Anaheim on August 14th.

But for now from one icon to another, watch Susan share her sentiments for Tony Geary after the jump! Then let us know what you thought of it! It’s hard to imagine that there is no Lucci,  no Slezak, and soon no Geary on our daytime drama television screens.

I don’t understand why you and Ces would respond so negatively.
By all accounts, Susan Lucci is a gracious, generous and lovely person. It was said that back in AMC’s hey day, Lucci stressed that AMC is an ensemble show and that no it does not, should not, revolve around Erica Kane.
I think this tribute to Tony is very genuine, and no, she’s not making it all about her.

Robert have you met Susan Lucci? Well I have several times. Susan is gracious, generous and kind. And every inch the professional. There is nothing phone about Susan. Spend some time with people who worked with her on AMC as I have then you would know.

Yes I have met Susan Lucci on numerous occasions and found her to charming and lovely.My complaint is about the phoniness of this whole thing of The View and the Chew sending congratulations when they know nothing about what Tony Geary,Susan Lucci an the whole daytime DRAMA community mean to those who love and respect the soap opera genre.Susan Lucci’s private persona I love-her public persona seems a bit insincere that’s all.As for referring to her as Disney legend galls me when it is moronic,incompetent Disney executives who damaged ,destroyed and finally killed her much loved show and One Life… Read more »

@Harry Ms. Luckily successful marriage, great kids, loyal to the role that made her famous and if you have not seen her on Devious Maids watch it she is a scream great at comedy. She was sincere even Lynda Hirsch said the woman always stays positive that is the people I want to be around.

I’ve met a few from each genre. They seem to appreciate more than others where they came from and what they are now blessed with. I realize to the Divas can be born!

While Susan is a diva she never acted like one.
I met James Mitchell (Palmer Courltand from AMC) and he was so kind, so affable and down to earth. Peter Bergman is great too.

Whomever does her cosmetic “work” (if I’m allowed to even suggest that) does great, subtle work. She doesn’t have that “overdone” botox injected look at all. I’m sure she’s had her share of procedures here and there but the results are natural looking, she doesn’t look like a Claymation character that some actresses turn themselves into. Also, have to get my dig in against the so called brain surgeon executives at ABC-TV who, while recognizing Susan Lucci’s worth, could not even experiment with two abridged or shortened versions of either All My Children nor OLTL or even combine them into… Read more »

Chrishell Stause and Singer G Flip Confirm Relationship

During the premiere of Friday night’s Selling Sunset reunion show on Netflix, there were several major moments, but one of them surprised many.

Former All My Children, Days of our Lives, and ‘Young and the Restless’ star, Chrishell Stause confirmed that she is in a relationship with Australian singer, G Flip.

Stause revealed that she is seeing the non-binary singer after the moderator, Tan France asked Chrishell if she was seeing anyone. The former soap star expressed: “I recently have been spending a lot of time with someone that’s very important to me. Their name is G Flip. They’re non-binary, so they go by they/them,” adding, “They are an extremely talented musician.”

Leave it to her soap background to play a part in the ultimate connection between Chrishell and G Flip. Stause explained: “It started because I was just going to be in their video. And it’s about this chaotic love story. I come from soaps, I love acting. And with the job that we have, I don’t always get to do it. At first of course I was like yes, let’s do that.”

G Flip’s latest single GAY 4 Me is out now and her new single is dropping on May 13th, GET ME OUTTA HERE.

Previously, Chrishell was dating her ‘Selling Sunset’ boss, Jason Oppenheim, who opined about the break-up of their relationship on the special. In a scene shown on the Netflix special, Oppenheim shared, “This is not the time of my life where I want to have a family.”  Months back, reports had surfaced that the couple had differences they could not overcome.  However, now Jason expressed that Stause was “the love of my life” and said he may regret forever the fact that he let her go.

Now back to present time.  According to PEOPLE.com, Stause is enjoying the company of G Flip, and the two were seen out and about at West Hollywood’s nightclub/bar, The Abbey, this past Thursday cozying up to one another.

In addition, it appears that Stause and G Flip are now living together in Chrishell’s Los Angeles home, which reportedly was purchased, in part, by her selling her wedding to her ex husband, This Is Us star, Justin Hartley.

Over the last 24 hours, Stause took to her Instagram story clad in a bikini, and showed us the renovation progress of a large closet at her home.  She closed the IG story withm “I’m gonna come out of it now,” to which several of her former DAYS castmates had fun with the ‘play on words’ response and shared some comments back to her.

So, what do you think of Chrishell entering into a relationship with G Flip? We wish them the best. Share your thoughts below.
