A shocked network mole informs The Suds Report that ABC chief Brian Frons has a backup plan should La Lucci quit. “He won't recast Erica Kane, but he has his eye on two former superstar divas to come on to AMC in a new role to headline our show,” issues an insider.
Speculation is that those two aforementioned divas are Deidre Hall (ex-Marlena, DAYS) or Genie Francis (ex-Laura, GH; ex-Ceara, AMC).
The other rumor on the street is Thorsten Kaye will turn down the move to L.A.
Shocking industry buzz: Rumour has it that Thorsten Kaye (Zach) will decline to move to L.A. when All My Children permanently moves their production out west.
“ABC doesn’t want to lose Thorsten,” says a show insider. “In our eyes, Thorsten is the star of the show — not Susan Lucci [Erica]. We are doing everything to change Thorsten’s mind, but it sounds like he’s staying in New York permanently because of his family.”
If this is true, what could it mean for One Life to Live?
