PD: Were you surprised that "AMC" moved West?
AM: Yes -- shocked as a matter of fact. I said, "Well I can't do that. I am a first-time mom and there is no way I can pack up and leave with a newborn." Plus, my roots and family were in New York.
Minshew also reveals her plans to make Hollyweird her permanent address.
PD: What was the deciding factor?
AM: There were a few. First off, we have so many friends out here in Los Angeles and the AMC cast is my extended family. We also knew Richie was able to hire some great managers while he was away. Third, we know this was temporary. We are renting a place and know ultimately we will be back in New York because we want to raise our daughter in New York City.
What are your First Impressions of Alicia Minshew’s return as Kendall to All My Children?
After seeing today’s episode plus watching the "Kendall’s Back" promo I am now convinced that there is something about Greenlee/Ryan/Kendall that inspires unoriginality in writers at AMC. At one time their dynamic might have worked, but now it has become so tiresome it makes Passions’ Therese/Ethan/Gwen triangle look like Shakespeare.
With all the talk about that other ABC Daytime brunette trouble maker returning this week, we can't forget about our girl Kendall! Alicia Minshew returns to All My Children today as Erica Kane's (Susan Lucci) fiesty first born. We can't wait to see her mix it up with her best frenemy Greenlee (Rebecca Budig).

Greenlee (Rebecca Budig) is going to have her hands full at Fusion when her best friend and rival Kendall (Alicia Minshew) returns to Pine Valley for good on August 9. For Zendall fans the return may be bittersweet. According to SOAPnet, Zach (Thorsten Kaye) will pop back up in Pine Valley on August 16, but only for a limited run.

This week in daytime,
I wondered if All My Children's Zach (Thorsten Kaye) and Kendall (Alicia Minshew) fans were steaming mad about their couple's onscreen reunion, of sorts. Not being a Zendall fan myself I expect it had to be more than a little bittersweet to see a favorite couple return, only to dissolve before our eyes like a hairball in a drain pipe attacked by Draino. My sympathies are with you Zendall fans.
It's one juicy week in Pine Valley! Greenlee (Rebecca Budig) holds a grudge against Kendall (Alicia Minshew). Adam (David Canary) has a secret he's keeping from Annie (Melissa Claire Egan) and Zach (Thorsten Kaye) is back with an ultimatum. Watch this week's All My Children promo after the jump.
