Aww Damn! Someone Jacked Susan Lucci’s Emmy!


Now before you break out the hounds to hunt that sucker down, relax. The View's Sherri Shepherd along with co-excutive producer Bill Geddie and Susan Lucci took part in a segment to tie in with All My Children's move and a special episode of the talk show centered around the suder. LOVE Lucci at the 1:17 mark saying she'll "cut a bitch!" Maybe Erica can say that to Greenlee when she hits town?

All My Children: Aidan Devane In Mission Impossible

A Cambias scorned. Sott-spoken private eye Aidan Devane (Aiden Turner) better be ready for some gnarly office politics when he goes to work at Cambias next week on All My Children. Spoilers indicate Aidan will be shocked to learn his first assignment has him headed off to the war-torn Sudan to rescue a mystery hostage. What, he doesn't read Daytime Confidential.com?

Aidan is hand picked for this risky assignment by Zach (Thorsten Kaye) who is secretly fuming over Devane's coital comfort of Zach's wife Kendall (Alicia Minshew), while Zach and Aidan's lady love Greenlee (Rebecca Budig) were missing in action. Geesh, couldn't he have just taken the guy on Springer and confronted him?

As previously spoiled, this storyline is to facilitate the introduction of Ricky Paull Goldin to the AMC canvas as Dr. Joey "Jake" Martin. How much are you willing to bet that Jake will pay Aidan back by bedding his girl Greenlee sometime in the near future? I'm just glad to see Aiden Turner front and center. I know a lot of soap critics aren't impressed with the actor or his character but I've always thought Aidan would be a great super hero if paired with the right leading lady. Unfortunately the closest thing we've ever had to that was his promising pairing with Sabine Singh's version of Greenlee Smythe. Not that I blame ABC one bit for bringing back Budig, the actress who made the role famous, but her return was bittersweet. Hmmm, perhaps Anna's nephew could spin off to General Hospital and that show could bring Sabine on as Liz's older sister Sarah? Just a teeny bit of Wishful Casting.

Now That The Writers Strike Is Over, Which High Profile Returnee Will Jump Ship First?

* There's no way Debbie and Darnell are gonna stay on All My Children in its current state. * Rebecca had basically just left AMC. I doubt she would have returned if the Strike wouldn't have happened. She's out. * Claudia Zacharra has been a real bust. Sarah has to be ready to head for the hills! * While Ava is getting plenty of play on Days, the role is a caricature. Braun is too good for this. She's a goner. * Daniel Cosgrove has to be itching to build on his Dirty Sexy Money stint. I bet Bizzie will ride off into the sunset together. * I bet all will stay put. With an Actors Strike possibly on the horizon it's smart to stay put and save dough.

All My Children: Sabine Singh Speaks Out



AMC SuperPoster has an exclusive email from Sabine Singh's via her fanclub president. We've posted a quick excerpt but you'll want to check it out.

"This turn of events offered me the opportunity to see such beauty in people: I have wonderful friends. I have amazing fans. The cast and crew of All My Children are so unbelievably supportive" - Sabine Singh

“Real Greenlee” Hotsheet



Well this week's ABC's Hotsheet pretty much fills out the "Real Greenlee" debacle trifecta. At this point I'm not sure there is anything left to say that hasn't already been said. Why couldn't they have just used the word "original" instead of "real". This whole thing could have been avoided.

I'm glad Budig is back but I only hope all this was worth it for them.
