I think she needs to be a blonde. Heather Stevens is a blonde.

Reigel is very talented, but she’s completely and utterly miscast.

MAB needs to quit, but that’ll never happen since she’s married to a Bell. First she lies boldly to her audience stating that Y&R is interested in writing lgbtq storylines yet Adam’s bisexuality is unexplored, where’s Rafe and Philip was written out after his highly publicized coming out was so botched w/ a terrible history rewrite to rival Erica’s unaboriton. But does the press call her out on that? Nope, instead it’s ABC’s homophobic when ABC has a far better track record of lgbtq storylines than the Bell soaps.

Then MAB refuses to let Rowell return, and every soap fan knows why that isn’t happening.

Now, she’s made the most perplexing casting decisions. Reigel is a great actress, she brought depth to Bianca, Daytime’s first lesbian heroine. But Reigel is completely miscast as Heather Stevens! Then again OLTL’s Blair is part Asian, yet she’s played by a Southern white woman so whatever. Back to Y&R, anyone w/ half a brain would cast Reigel as Mack! That’s pit her against Chloe, and reunite Reigel and Hendrickson. While the blonde Rylan should have been the recasted Heather Stevens. MAB is beyond idiotic.

The worst part is MAB renaming Y&R into All About Adam. Victor, Nikki, Nicholas, Sharon, Ashley, even Phyliss, all these core characters portrayed by vets (most of whom are excellent actors) are fussing about Adam? Muhney is completely miscast since he looks evil, while Engen played against type. Everything has been plot driven abt Adam, from Ashley’s gaslighting, to her haunting, to Adam wearing Sabrina’s dress, to the baby switch w/ Faith. The only reason Adam and Sharon were paired is to up the ante of the baby switch reveal. The pairing is completely inorganic, while Case and Muhney have zero chemistry. Case is the eternal babe of Daytime, she needs to be paired w/ a stud. Muhney ain’t it. Case had better chemistry w/ Miller.

recasting Heather is a mistake. I can see the viewing audience disliking Eden in this role. Perhaps that dislike will make her role stronger….I disliked Vail’s role but not her acting I actually liked her.

Heather’s role is one problem but the biggest role castastropy is the role of Mackenzie! What, who’s screw up was that? Did no one else want that role?

Cady McClain Remembers ‘All My Children’ On Its 50th Anniversary Sharing: “I Will Always Be Grateful For the Experience, and For The Lifelong Relationship With All The Fans”

The beloved All My Children first aired on January 5th, 1970 on ABC and ran on the network until it was canceled back in September of 2013.  The next year, the show received a short-lived reboot online via Prospect Park.

One of the actresses to appear in both the network and online version was Daytime Emmy winning actress Cady McClain, who became soap-famous for her role as Dixie Cooney Martin and together with Michael E. Knight, became one of soaps all-time popular duos as Tad and Dixie.

While so many miss All My Children every single day and the indelible characters created by the late, great Agnes Nixon, McClain took to her Instagram on Sunday to relate what the soap opera meant to her in her life.

Here is what Cady shared along with a cover of Soap Opera Digest featuring Michael Knight and herself as Tad and Dixie: “Today I am celebrating the 50th Anniversary of “All My Children”! I started on the show when I had just turned 19 in the fall of 1988. I worked as a contract player thru 1996. I was back in the fall of 1997 again under contract and worked through 2001. That’s roughly 13 years. Then I came back for a year in 2006, then for a couple months in 2012. Then I did the internet version for six weeks and then… the show was done.

Eric Braeden Teases: "Lot of Interesting Stuff Coming Up on Y&R Involving a Cast of Known Characters Including Yours Truly!"

For many years this show and the people on it were like family to me. The makeup artists as much mom’s as my own mom to me at times. And thanks to the work I was able to afford some art school and college as well. I saw many great shows (both American and International) that came to NYC, which opened my eyes to what performance could be. It allowed me to do a lot of Off-Broadway theater and roles in five Indie films while working my day job.

I was nominated three times and won my first Emmy. I made some lifelong friends like Michael E. Knight, James Patrick Stewart, Jill Larson, Penny Bergman, Julia Barr, Lonnie Quinn and many others both in front of and behind the scenes. And most importantly, I was able to take care of my wild but wonderful mother. ‘She who drove me nuts’ but impressed on me the importance of having art in ones life. Who read me poems and took me to museums. My child who died but who I so grateful to have known. Thank you ABC and all the producers and writers who supported me and my work. Because of your support my life was richer, broader, more interesting. I will always be grateful for the experience …. and for the lifelong relationship with all the fans! Massive shout out to the daytime fans who continue to support me in my projects. When I meet one of you on the street I am truly grateful for your time and that we got to share some really special moments together. . .”
