Will All My Children’s Erica Kane End up With The Lawyer or The Mountain Man?


TV Guide’s Michael Logan chatted with the face of ABC Daytime, Susan Lucci. The All My Children actress gave some tidbits about what’s to come with Jackson (Walt Willey), Erica, and Caleb (Michael Nouri).

TV Guide Magazine: Caleb and Erica will agree to work side by side to run Cortlandt. This isn’t looking too good for Jack.

Lucci: Oh, no, Erica really wants him! In fact, she notices that Krystal [Bobbie Eakes] is just a little too interested in Jack and that makes Erica even more interested in him. [Laughs] The claws will come out! But, yes, circumstances will force her to work with Caleb. She’s ready for a difficult situation but suddenly she has these good feelings about him and she’s also holding onto her good feelings about Jack. So there’s a real pull. And that’s what will begin the triangle.

La Lucci also shared her thoughts on who exactly Erica should be with.


TV Guide Magazine: Who do you think Erica will wind up with? Who is Susan Lucci rooting for?

Lucci: I don’t know which way it’s going to go or if anything is engraved in stone as far as the writers go. I just know there’s a terrific setup here. I’m so lucky to be in this story with Walt and Michael because they’re both so great looking and such great actors and very different from each other. As for Erica, she wants to be very sure she’s doing the right thing before she gets married again.

    10 weeks is a long time. I am curious to see if there is any noticeable nip/tuckage. She looks fab in that tvguide.com photo. Is the consensus that AMC is ineteresting now? Tuned in for a bit a few weeks back, but my interest was not piqued.

    She said in the interview this is the longest vacation she has ever done…she doesn’t do the “Anthony Geary” or “Erika Slezak” vacation package annually if you know what I mean…

    Hopefully mountain man just goes back to the mountains and gives her no choice. Not that it should even be a choice between him and Jack anyways. The choice is easy, Jack!

    Anything that reduces the Cameron Matheson screentime has got to be an improvement. It’s great to hear that she’s back, but it’s not enough to get me tuning in again…

    I think the reason she’s getting 10 weeks off now is that it’s a way for ABC to cut back on the AMC budget. I’m sure they’re not paying her for all that down time.

    They really ought to bring back Dimitri. That was Erica’s most interesting relationsip by far!

    To me, she and Jackson come off as kind of like brother and sister.

    I think the 10 weeks is a combination of the budget and Lucci’s desire to spend as much time at home in New York. I also think she’s going to retire next year, to coincide with the release of her autobiography. That’s just my gut feeling.

    If they brought Dimitri back, they’d have to recast, because there’s no way he’ll ever return after that ridiculous lawsuit he launched against them after he was (rightfully) fired from the show that last time.

    I forgot about that $37 million lawsuit. So Michael Nader is definitely out of the cards. That’s a shame; he and Susan had a lot of heat.

    The recast they tried in 2001 didn’t work as Dimitri, who was one of the most complex and fascinating characters I’d ever seen on daytime. I suppose there are very few actors in the daytime landscape who would be right for the part.

    Speaking of lawsuits, whatever happened with the wrongful termination due to pregnancy that the actress who played Reese had going against GH? Anyone know?

    I was looking forward to hearing how Guza and Phelps explained themselves outta that mess.

    Okay, I am officially going through withdrawal symptoms!! I want my Erica Kane back in Pine Valley ASAP!!!!Enough is enough!!! LOL!!!!

    And we all know she’s gonna end up making Caleb husband # 12,546!!!!!!It’s only a matter of time, and the writers couldn’t be any more predictable and obvious if they tried. What happened to the days when writers knew how to keep you guessing and then surprise you at the last minute??????????????????

    Jackson, maybe Krystal can fix you some soul food and help mend your broken heart after you and Erica break up for the 2,000th time??? I smell a really cute rebound relationship………….. ;) ;)

    IMO there is no contest. Grizzly Adam’s isn’t even in the running, LOL. It’s JERICA all the way. They have the chemistry , the history, and the fanbase. Kwaleb makes much more sense. They are alike and she never kidnapped one of his family members…YET!

    There’s no question. I like Caleb but he’s no competition for Jack. Which is too bad really, because I really would like to see Jack and Krystal. He’s the first man that’s made her interesting since David.
