All My Children's One Young Couple Promo

All My Children's Amanda and Jake are front and center in the latest promo. It's always good to focus on the positive, isn't it? 

Jake and Amanda Wedding Photos

Jake Martin and Amanda Dillon tied the knot on today's All My Children. The ceremony was officiated by Jake's brother Tad,  vested by the power of the internet. David Hayward showed up to try and stop the wedding, but ended up with and gag in his mouth and tied to a chair as the ceremony proceeded. Opal and Krystal were also in attendance. Now the honeymoon can begin, but it to be the "normal" honeymoon. Amanda goes into labor. More wedding photos after the jump. READ MORE

Should AMC's Amanda Dillon Give Up Her Baby?

The All My Children and One Life to Live promo has Amanda Dillon (Chrishell Stause) battling with whether or not to give up her baby, after giving birth. My vote is she keep it. I love Jake (Ricky Paull Goldin) and Amanda's connection and I would like nothing more than to see the two of them raising a child together while David tries to get his hands on the child.

Should Amanada give her baby to Liza Colby?

The Problem with Liza Colby

By now, it should be a shock to no one that the near unanimous consensus among most of us who watch All My Children here at Daytime Confidential, the casting of Jamie Luner as Liza Colby Chandler has been a huge bust as of this writing. We know that opinion could change in the future with a knockout performance by Luner, an engaging storyline for the character, or a relationship of any kind that could revitalize Liza and make us see her with new eyes. Unfortunately, none of those three things have happened yet.

The collective criticism of this "new" Liza has centered mostly around the (mis)casting of Ms. Luner, an actress who has her fair share of fans from her days on Melrose Place, Savannah and other shows. On AMC, however, Ms. Luner is delivering the kind of performance that might described as, if I may be permitted to coin a phrase, pseudo-catatonic. Sure, some of the dialogue sounds a little like what Liza might say, but not after three tablespoons of Nyquil.

As a result, at first I was convinced that the problem with Liza was mostly the fault of the actress. That opinion changed with a couple of scenes that aired on Monday's episode that revealed the fundamental reason this character isn't working is because of head writer Chuck Pratt's fundamental misunderstanding about the nature of Liza.

AMC Beauty Chrishell Stause's Contract Extension Good Through Sept.

Daytime Confidential has received a clearer picture of Chrishell Stause's (Amanda) decision to once again extend her contract with All My Children. According to sources, Stause only re-upped through September.

"The show was prepared to recast if she didn't re-sign," says one mole.

Whether or not the beauty will stay after the Fall is anyone's guess, but considering the Jake (Ricky Paull Goldin) and Amanda pairing are one of the few things AMC is doing right these day, I'm crossing my fingers.
