Wildly Entertaining Susan Lucci Guest Spot on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen! Brian Frons named, "Jackhole of the Day"!

On an amazingly entertaining episode of Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live with host and executive, Andy Cohen, Susan Lucci and Mark Ruffalo were the guests, and what went down was a complete laugh riot and love fest between Cohen, who has a huge celebrity crush on La Lucci, and Susan who as loveable and charming as ever.  And so was Avenger’s star, Ruffalo, we might add.

What sent us completely reeling was the hilarious game show segment where Andy and Susan matched wits on who knew Erica Kane trivia better, called, wait for it, “Anything you Kane do, I Kane do better.”  And the funniest part, Susan was stumped most of the time, while Cohen chimed in and knew the answers,  and won the game.

And what soap fan did not love this!  Andy named Brian Frons the “Jackhole of the Day” (a series staple) for canceling All My Children!  And with that, thousands of soap fans probably stood up and cheered around the country!  When giving Frons this dubious honor, Cohen said, “My Jackhole of the Day goes to Brian Frons.  Now this is the man responsible for canceling All My Children.  Now I am going to quote the great Susan Lucci, she said it best, there’s a new section in her book, which I really love.   She said ‘I watch Brian Frons’s decisions destroy the production of our show, and the lives of people on both sides of the country.”  Mazel to you, Susan, and Jackhole to him.”

In another staple of Watch What Happens Live,  “Plead the Fifth”,  (You all remember that, don’t you? Where DAYS  Lisa Rinna stuck her foot in her mouth calling out Joe Mascolo as the worst actor on DAYS)  Susan had these comments to say when Cohen bombarded her with his pressure-cooking questioning.  Susan revealed, she does not blame the popularity of reality television for the cancellation of AMC, and we learned that her least favorite storyline on AMC was when Phil Brent wanted to keep Erica barefoot and pregnant, and she was a stay at home gal, ripping shopping coupons out of the P.V newspaper!

After the jump, check out this other great segment  from Watch What Happens Live, After the Show, where Susan talks about the final scenes of All My Children, takes calls from viewers,  and much more!

Thanks for sharing this with us, I enjoyed Susan, Andy and Mark, and am sorry I missed the live version. I have liked Andy since his show began, but after giving Frons this dubious honor, I like him even more!!!! Way to go Andy!!!!

Once again, the media mainstream continues to mourn All My Children aka “The Susan Lucci show” while completely disregarding that One Life to Live also was cancelled or that it ever existed.

All My Children Alum Finn Wittrock To Headline ‘Green Lantern’

From Pine Valley to the DC Universe! Now comes word that former All My Children star, Finn Wittrock (Ex-Damon Miller) will take on the role of Guy Gardner/Green Latern on the upcoming HBO Max series, Green Lantern from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Brothers Television.

According to Deadline who dropped the casting news, Wittrock’s Guy Gardner/Green Lantern is “a hulking mass of masculinity, and, as rendered in the comics, an embodiment of 1980s hyper-patriotism. And yet, Guy is somehow likable.”

In the premise of the series, Green Lantern reinvents the classic DC property through a story spanning decades and galaxies, beginning on Earth in 1941 with the very first Green Lantern, secretly gay FBI agent Alan Scott, and 1984, with cocky alpha male Guy Gardner (Wittrock) and half-alien Bree Jarta. They’ll be joined by a multitude of other Lanterns — from comic book favorites to never-before-seen heroes.”

Previously, Finn received Emmy nominations for his work on American Horror Story: Freak Show and for Versace: American Crime Story.

So what do you think of Finn’s new role? Comment below.

Daytime fans remember him fondly as the son of Jesse (Darnell Williams) and Angie Hubbard (Debbi Morgan), Frankie, on All My Children.  And now, actor Cornelius Smith Jr., is set to join a major limited series based on the acclaimed nonfiction book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Sheri Fink, about the the first five days following Hurricane Katrina made landfall entitled Five Days at Memorial.

Written by John Ridley and Carlton Cruse, Smith will play a doctor, (something he is very familiar with playing since Frankie Hubbard was a doctor in Pine Valley!) named Dr. Bryant King, an internist and one of the few doctors of color at the hospital, who finds himself very much in the middle of the crisis.  He will headline the show alongside Vera Farmiga and Adepero Oduye.
