I am very much NOT digging the sex trafficking storyline. I need it to end ASAP. I know the acting is top notch but that’s not a good enough reason to tell a story that disgusts me. I also think Pete is getting too much airtime. I don’t buy that he’s this business mogul. I wish AMC would stop introducing new faces to the show. We know Colby Chandler although she’s been played by many different actresses over the years, but I’d prefer if they brought back recognizable faces playing recognizable characters. I keep hoping and wishing. I’m not giving… Read more »

You pretty much hit the nail on the head, Beth – it really, sincerely needs to improve and there is too much, Waaay too much time on Petey or “Pete” – the actor portraying him is not strong enough acting wise to keep us that interested – it’s understandable that they needed a new J.R. Chandler since Jacob Young wasn’t available, but the show seems a shadowy shell of what it used to be. They need stronger writers and they need to retrieve some familiar faces and by that I don’t mean drudging up Billy Clyde from 90 years ago.… Read more »

Thank GOD for Colby! Colby’s arrival is exactly what this show needs.. somebody that’s going to create CONFLICT! Everyone’s is so damn nice to each other, it’s sickening.. with the exception of the sex-trafficers, they aren’t nice to the girls. Colby getting in there, causing some trouble.. stirring JR up, trying to take Chandler from Brooke, and coming in between Celia and Petey is gonna create for more intriguing storylines in the future. AMC could of had something with JR, if they had him take the steroids to heal faster.. would been nice to see him screw up and be… Read more »

Am I “digging” Pete and Celia? I don’t know, somehow, I thought there would be more to the new ALL MY CHILDREN than this. I love reliable stand by’s Angie and Jesse as played by Debbi Morgan and Darnell Williams but the storyline with Cassandra needs to come to a close. The people of Pine Valley don’t seem inter-connected, the absence of key core characters is badly missed – the resurfacing of Billy Clyde seemed unnecessary to me – if the shows were shown on a daily basis, there might be a chance for us to grasp a sense of… Read more »

Are you digging Pete and Celia? Love them individually, just have to see as far as the couple thing goes. The sex-trafficking storyline? Not a bad story because all my favorites are involved. Just wish they would find Cassandra already so we can see her deal with the fall out. Miranda’s teenage angst? I’m in my fifties and have watched soaps for over 45 of those years. I have never really been able to get attached to teen story-lines, but I have to say I am loving Miranda and AJ. Just shows what happens when you actually get teens that… Read more »

Pete and Celia are the best thing on the show! I can’t stand the sex trafficking story line and will be happy when it ends. AJ and Miranda are a bit much. I am getting very close to giving up on AMC and OLTL… waiting for them to get good.

I’m not feeling Pete and Celia, the lack of chemistry is way to obvious, it seems Pete and AJ (who needs to bring it down a notch with the over acting) are not very believable (IMO) when it comes to romancing the girls. I also think the casting of JR is so very very wrong, he looks about the same age as Dixie.

I know, that part of it is ridiculous beyond words, the actress who plays Dixie is in her very early 40’s and the current actor (who’s ever so slightly boring by the way) playing J.R. Chandler is in his late 30’s – if anything they look more like sister and brother. You are also 100% correct that the young actor playing AJ over-acts every chance he gets, which is pretty much all the time. I also agree that the chemistry between Celia and Petey just isn’t there – maybe Petey should hit on AJ…well at least it would be interesting… Read more »

I agree with the odd casting of JR who looks the same age as Dixie (his mother). I have also said on another blog that he looks like Cliff Warner (could have brought him in as Cliff and Nina’s son; which would make him Opal step grandson, Would have really liked to see Jacob Young bring JR back (but take it down a notch and not be so arrogant and beligerent to everyone. I thought his cockiness could step back a little. Anxious to see Brooke get more air time with Tempo…. Where is Adam; why is he not around;… Read more »

As heart wrenching as it is to watch, Cass’s story is definitely the most interesting. I love that it is giving a handful of the vets interesting story as well. The bratty Miranda storyline would be more interesting if it wasn’t for this watered down version of Bianca. I understand the whole Mona=Bianca & Erica=Kendall thing, but Bianca hasn’t been such a doormat in several years. She put Erica in her place many, many times. If the idea is that she is still mourning Marissa too deeply, they need to snap her out of it quick. It’s a huge waste… Read more »

Eva LaRue Reveals COVID-19 Diagnosis

During former All My Children, B&B and GH star, Jacob Young’s podcast, Real Conversations with Jacob Young, he welcomed his good friend and former Pine Valley cast mate, Eva LaRue (Ex-Maria, AMC, and Celeste, Y&R).

At the very top of the episode, LaRue revealed she and her daughter Kaya tested positive for Covid-19.  She shared, “We thought we had dodged a bullet, but sure enough, on New Year’s Eve, we both tested positive.”

“Oddly enough,” she goes on to say, “I really feel like we’ve been so sick of being scared to death of the invisible monster underneath the bed all last year, always looking over our shoulders.”  Eva added, “Nobody knows which one they are. Are they someone who’s going to survive it or succumb to it? Or have residual effects? All we can do is pray for the best.”

 

However, LaRue has been trying alternative methods of helping her with Covid-19 via IV treatments.  “I’ve got this amazing integrative doctor who I’ve been working with for a long time, and I know a lot of people are like, ‘No, we only do Western medicine,’ and that’s fine, I love Western medicine… but integrated medicine and Western medicine have to go hand in hand, in my opinion. Because, I just feel like, we need to open our minds to what is new and what is out there.”   So because of that, Eva has chosen to receive these treatments to hopefully starve off any long term effects of Covid.

In addition, Eva told Young she has hopes for the new primetime All My Children reboot that is in the works:  “I have my fingers crossed that they’ll be doing something with this new Pine Valley show.”   Remember, the Santos family and the Kanes are said to be the epicenter of the revival, so perhaps LaRue will be a guest-star on it, since she is also close friends with two of the EP’s, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC)!

Send your well-wishes to Eva and her daughter, Kaya and let us know would you love to see LaRue on the ‘Pine Valley’ primetime reboot?  Comment below.

All My Children Primetime Reboot “Pine Valley” in the Works at ABC from Kelly Ripa & Mark Consuelos and Andrew Stearn

Huge news that could bring back a new updated version of daytime’s All My Children to primetime!

ABC is eyeing a revival of Agnes Nixon’s long-running beloved series that ran for 41 years on the network and then saw an online reboot from Prospect Park that lasted only one season.

According to Deadline, former AMC stars Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo) will executive produce along with Andrew Stearn and Agnes Nixon’s son, Robert Nixon.

 

The series is currently in the early stages of development, but what has been revealed is: the reboot will be written/executive produced by Leo Richardson (Katy Keene, Star), and it will center on a young journalist with a secret agenda who comes to expose the dark and murderous history of a town named Pine Valley only to become entangled in a feud between the Kane and Santos families. The series explores all the secrets that come with the Kane and Santos family names.

In the new incarnation, Pine Valley, will feature a new generation of characters and some old favorites.  As of this moment, no original cast members have deals, but the plan would be to have them make appearances, plus Ripa and Consuelos could also make a cameo.  Of course, many are already pondering if Susan Lucci (Erica Kane) might actually be a mainstay on the new primetime series; since the Kanes are one of the core families in the reboot.

Pine Valley plans to continue the original series’ tradition of tackling difficult social issues of our time and being inclusive, which the show was known for under the iconic Agnes Nixon’s storytelling.

Of note is that Stearn is also a lifelong fan of AMC and has been the driving force behind the reboot.  In fact when he was deciding between ABC Signature and one other studio for an overall deal, he chose ABC Signature because it was going to allow him to pursue his dream of rebooting All My Children.  It was then he started tracking down the rights to the soap.  As soap fans know, the rights to AMC reverted back to ABC after Prospect Park’s online version fell apart.

Later, after meeting with a number of writers to helm Pine Valley, Stearn went with Richardson, who had worked on the British soap EastEnders in his native Britain. Stearn also got on board the estate of Agnes Nixon, with son Robert Nixon joining the project as an executive producer.

So what do you think of “Pine Valley”, the All My Children primetime reboot being in development?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
