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.

Soap stars and country music stars seem to be the kindness, most generous people in the entertainment business.

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 »

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.
