Top 5 Bad-Ass Women of Summer TV

No. 5: Angie Hubbard, All My Children


Debbi Morgan’s return to Pine Valley as Angie, with the relaunch of All My Children, has nearly erased all memory of the YoHarmony debacle on The Young and the Restless. This summer we watched as Angie searched for answers in her daughter’s kidnapping. We saw her grapple with the awful truth of Cassandra’s (Saleisha Stowers) rape and drugging when her beloved daughter was returned to her arms.

However, it was this week’s episodes—where Angie poured out her soul over the swirl of conflicting emotions regarding Cassandra’s desire to end the pregnancy—that gripped me most of all. It was easily one of the most emotional, bad-ass performances of the summer. Angie broke it down.
