Sad news to report this morning. According to a report from TooFab, in court documents filed on Wednesday, La La Land  and film producer Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T., Y&R) has filed for divorce from his wife The Young and the Restless’ Amelia Heinle (Victoria Newman).

The item states that Thad filed for the split in Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday, citing “irreconcilable differences.”  The couple wed back in 2007 and have been together for ten years. The couple are parents to their children: Thaddeus, 10, and Georgia, 8.

Luckinbill is seeking joint custody of the children and is asking the court to “reserve for future determination the issue of spousal support,” according to the filing.

Thad exited Y&R back in 2010 and began producing hit films and working behind the scenes. As for Amelia, the popular actress has won two Daytime Emmys since taking over the role of Victoria on the CBS soap opera back in 2005.

Share your thoughts on the split of Amelia and Thad in the comment section below, and wish the family well during this difficult time.

I agree with him tmi so not our business. Why do celebrities feel the need to broadcast their marital woes to a fan base. Tell the whole truth of these matter or leave that ish private. FOR REAL!!!

It is always sad to hear news like this, damien; especially because we consider these characters/ actors (actresses) as part of our family.
By the same token, what can be said? No one is privy to whatever goes on behind closed doors.
The ones to suffer the most are the children. My love and support goes out to all of them. Best wishes.

Yeah, comes off a little rude and heartless. When a marriage breaks up and there are kids involved, it is always difficult, even if it’s amicable.

The good thing is that the children will still have both their parents in their lives even if not in the same home!!!…Unfortunately, divorce happens..but even more so in Hollywood

Yes, and Reed is doing well while pursuing his music career.
Wait….I am a tad mixed up.
In any case, always liked these two as actors and I am sorry their marriage is over.

Very sad news this explains a lot the dramatic weight loss over the last few months with AH and they never seemed to be together at events anymore.

Yeah, Kay…you are always on point. I had remarked how Kristen Storms had dropped weight, drastically, since her divorce.
The same goes for Amelia….very noticeable. Hope all’s well.

I never warmed to this actress or her character but wish them both well. Have to get the divorce under the 10 year mark in California

Yes, this speaks to Thad’s character. It looks like he filed for divorce – a few days before the 10-year mark. Since he filed, I don’t know, but it sounds like he is choosing money over his family – very sad.

I think that’s a little bit slimy, like him. I don’t think he was a very good actor.

wish they would seek therapy both individually and as a couple . you wil always experience lows in a marriage . sometimes issues need to be addressed in therapy and for both to work on these issues . Wish people would work on their marriages rather than just give up .

GH’s Charles Shaughnessy On Victor’s Villainy: “He’s Just Making Trouble for All of the Fan Favorites! He’s Just Making Their Lives Miserable”

In pretty short order, Victor Cassadine’s re-emergence in Port Charles, and now played by daytime vet, Charles Shaughnessy, has caused plenty of havoc on ABC’s General Hospital.  Shaughnessy, who was much beloved as Shane Donovan on Days of our Lives, debuted on GH back in September of 2021.

You can look at the body count, or the people Victor has under his thumb, to know the impact he is making on the canvas.

In a new interview in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest (on newsstand now), Shaughnessy weighs-in on being the treacherous Cassadine.

 

Charles shared: “I mean, he’s just making trouble for all of the fan favorites! He’s just making their lives miserable.  He’s the guy who killed Luke Spencer.  He’s the guy who put Anna in jail and tried to break up her relationship with Valentin.  He’s just miserable to Holly. He’s just dreadful! But it’s such great fun, I mean, the more dreadful the better, really. He’s the villain you love to hate.”

So, how and just when Victor will get his comeuppance is on everyone’s mind in the viewing audience as well as for characters such as: Laura (Genie Francis), Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), Lucy (Lynn Herring), Holly (Emma Samms), Anna (Finola Hughes), Ava (Maura West), Selina (Lydia Look), and many more.

Victor’s evil deeds seemed to reach new heights during the Holly Sutton storyline. Now the question is, who will he go after next, given what would seem to be his quest for the necklace containing diamonds from the Ice Princess?  Stay tuned.

What do you think of Charles’ portrayal of Victor? Who do you hope takes down Victor? Comment below.
