Avowed All My Children super-fan Andy Cohen got the surprise of his life on The Today Show: an appearance by Susan Lucci (ex-Erica, AMC)! Currently co-hosting the fourth hour of Today while Jenna Bush Hager is on maternity leave, Cohen was surprised by Hoda Kotb.
When Kotb brought on a mystery guest, she showed off the person's silhouette and made Cohen guess her identity based on a series of clues. The veteran anchor said:
"Clue No. 1: This person competed in ‘Dancing With the Stars.' Clue No. 2: This person has great genes. Her mom’s 102.”
An excited Cohen burst out with:
"Susan Lucci? Is it Susan Lucci?! Is it Susan Lucci?! Is it?"
Of course, the grand dame of soap operas then came out on stage, much to Hoda and Andy's visible delight. Watch Andy lavish love on La Lucci below:
