Thought since the end is growing close I would start a new spoiler thread to keep track of the returns and rumors in Pine Valley.

Daytime Royalty

ALL MY CHILDREN: Broderick's writing is coming sometime this month and she has had input over the last few months so we will start to see storylines start to come alive finally!! But only problem is that I honestly believe is that Frons is still putting his two cents in and makes the decisons who will stay and who will go. He needs to let LB do her magic and I am also hearing Agnes Nixon has alot of input as well. Here's hoping these two can do the show and the viewers justice. In my heart of hearts I love AMC it was the first soap I got hooked on but I have to say it's some what of a relief that it is being canceled. The show was so good back in the day and for the last few years it has gone down the toilet. (Thanks Frons for all your hires of unimaginative writers and your insistence to bring back dead beat actors old and new).....While Jane continues to blunder to keep her self in tact as Erica her loved ones begin to realize there is something terrible wrong with her....More Dixie coming and we will find out where she has been and who has been keeping her. Cady tweeted that her scenes are going to air sooner then expected and they had to cut alot of scenes to move things up for Dixie to return. We will find out more about what has happened to Dixie in the time since she ate those killer pancakes. Michael Knight has said in a recent interview that Tad/Dixie are endgame....The Bianca/Marissa story or as fans call them Minx reminds me very much of the Otalia/Frank story on Guiding Light......Coming this month.....The story of Jane's past is revealed. Jane, meanwhile, gets more and more caught up in David's schemes.....Believing Jake and Cara had sex, Amanda makes a reckless decision that could have awful consequences for her.....Marissa responds to Bianca's confession.....Angie and Maya meet......Colby and Asher investigate what Maya's secret is.


Josh Duhamel returns to 'All My Children' -- EXCLUSIVE
by Lynette Rice

Posted Image

In a classy show of gratitude for the show that helped to jump start his career, Josh Duhamel has agreed to perform a cameo on the soon-to-be shuttered All My Children.

Duhamel will reprise his role as con artist Leo du Pres on the ABC soap, which is set to air its final episode in September. The film actor, who went on to star in NBC’s Las Vegas before appearing in flicks like Transformers and Life as We Know It, will appear in an August episode (or two?) of AMC.

De Pres supposed died in 2003 when trying to save Greenlee (Rebecca Budig) in a waterfall accident. His body, however, was never found — which left open the possibility that his character would return to Pine Valley.

Duhamel was nominated for four Daytime Emmy awards for his time on AMC; he won for outstanding supporting actor in 2002.

Occasionally, the daytime soaps are successful in recruiting famous alums to perform cameos before they go off the air. In April 2010, Julianne Moore (A Single Man) reprised her role as Frannie Hughes on As the World Turns before it ended last fall. The Oscar-nominated actress got her start on ATWT in 1985 by playing half-sisters Frannie and Sabrina - a depiction that earned her a Daytime Emmy in 1988, the year she left the show.

There are plenty of other exciting alums that AMC could lure, if the timing (or money) is right. Besides Duhamel, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Christian Slater also got their start on AMC, as did Kelly Ripa and Kim Delaney. The list of graduates of One Life to Life, which goes off the air in January 2012, is equally fun and impressive. Former stars of that soap include Tommy Lee Jones, Blair Underwood, Hayden Panettiere and Yasmin Bleeth.


Eva La Rue Returns to All My Children

Eva La Rue has joined the growing list of All My Children alumni returning to the ABC soap before it goes off the air in September.

Earlier this week, the show announced that it had also snagged star Josh Duhamel (Las Vegas, Transformers). He'll be back for at least one episode in August, reprising the role of Leo du Pres, who died in 2003. Thorsten Kaye (Zach Slater) and Cady McClain (Dixie Cooney Martin), both of whom play characters who are now deceased, will also return.

La Rue, who currently stars in CBS' CSI: Miami, will be back for several episodes beginning in July. The actress played Dr. Maria Santos Grey, who first turned up in Pine Valley in 1993, left in 1997 and returned again in 2002. Maria moved to California permanently in 2005 after she spun out of control following the death of her husband Edmund (John Callahan). La Rue was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award and won two ALMA Awards for her role on the show.

All My Children insiders say the show is fielding calls from many former cast members about potentially returning for its final days. (The daytime soap will be replaced this fall by The Chew, a one-hour talk show centered on food.) Other notable stars who got their start on All My Children include Sarah Michelle Gellar, Melissa Leo and Christian Slater.

OMG at Yahoo

More From SID

Before there was Kendall and Zach, Maria Santos was the lady in the casino owner's life. And now, a reunion may be ahead for the former flames since the lovely doctor's portrayer, Eva La Rue, will be bringing her back to ALL MY CHILDREN!

ABC has announced that the CSI: MIAMI star is the latest alum of the soap to return to Pine Valley before AMC signs off in September, and will air in July. Just earlier this week, the network revealed that Josh Duhamel (Leo) would be making a brief appearance, and the soap had already secured fan favorites Cady McClain (Dixie) and Thorsten Kaye (Zach) to reprise their roles. While Transformers star Duhamel is scheduled to only appear in an episode or two -- most likely as a ghost from what sources tell Soaps In Depth -- a spokesperson for the show confirms that LaRue's stint will be spread out over several episodes next month. She first joined the AMC cast in 1993, and left in 1997. La Rue returned in 2002, but the character moved to California in 2005 after spinning out of control following the death of her husband, Edmund (played by John Callahan). Even though she was already starring on hit CBS crime drama, La Rue made a brief AMC appearance as Maria last year during the soap's 40th anniversary celebration in the documentary shot by Kelly Ripa's Hayley.

Amanda ends up on a business meeting with JR. The client heads home and Amanda notices JR has booked a room for the night that will be empty now.

SOW talks to VI about Liza and David. He says them not moving forward with D/L is one of the many things that he doesn't get about the past year. One week there's a kiss, then they don't air. Then another kiss, then nothing. He went to JHC who told him they wanted to wrap up the other stories before doing anything more with that. He was like at least write in a few scenes. SOW speculates even if D/L do get another chance, there's probably an obstacle coming: David's former obsession, Dixie.

A popular female villain from AMC's past will make a quick return before AMC ends.

Lucci gets SOD's Performer of the week for the first weeks of Jane/Erica. They note all the different things she's doing with the two characters, the differences in interactions.

SOW's AMC editor calls a MISS Oout on Grififn walking around anywhere he wants anytime he wants while he's in hiding.

SOD's AMC editor loved CBL getting a chance to show her chops during the Ricky/Michael tie in. In another section, the editor contemplates WTH AMC had David backburner after he woke from the coma. She's happy he's back on the FB. She wants to see lots of making up for lost time with Jane, Dixie, Liza, and Greenlee.

MAIL: A fan discusses being a long term fan of AMC and how she misses love in the afternoon and hopes LB brings it back. A fan hates on ABC for the cancellations. A fan or two in SOD (line) and SOW (full letter) hates Greenlee and very much doesn't want her rewarded with a Leo return. Fans are speculating on who else may return to PV.

Moment fans most looking forward to? 44% Blair seeing RH Todd. 35% Kendall seeing Zach. 21% Tad seeing Dixie.

Kendall is a winner for not having to kiss Ricky again. Madison is a loser having lost her baby and bf in the same week. SOW's Peanut Gallery notes a broken leg seems like a small price for Ricky to have suffered.

Eddie Matos talks about the great experiences he's had with casts including PC's, Cane's and AMC's.

SG discusses how hard it is playing being mean to DC/Scott. Talks about how much they laugh before the camera rolls. Sometimes her tears are from laughing so hard. She talks about how great an actor DC is because as soon as the camera is on, he puts on his heartbroken and she just gets right there with him thanks to that.

There's a father's day article with RPG. Sweet article where he talks about being a dad. Stause, Vilasuso and Minshew comment on daddy Ricky. A father's day Q&A with Cameron. The most rewarding thing about being a dad for him is that what is most gratifying is not having attention on himself but on others.

Nobody has sex on AMC (until the week of 6/20? lol) so this isn't an AMC tidbit: A on-screen duo that recently had sex on-screen, is hooking up in real life too. One portion of the duo is not a first-timer in hooking up with his/her on-screen partner.

Emmy Stuff...

CBL chats about Minshew and her Emmy nomination. Especially with being a part of those scenes, there was no doubt in her mind AM was going to get the nom. She's happy for all the nominees, but she's got a special spot for AM because she was there with her during that. She's proud of her.

Stause notes most embrassing Emmy moments. Once she forgot to wear undergarments and had to send her date to get them. Last year, she arrived so hung over that she passed out 30 minutes before the red carpet. LeBlanc from Y&R notes that when he won lead Actor in 2009, Susan Lucci presented it. He got all fangurl and was gushing bigtime and trying to take pictures with her. She got pulled away before they could.

Interviews with the nominees...

RPG says he chose something not at all melodramatic for this years nomination. Jake proposing. He says he woke up to go to the bathroom when he check his phone. 20 texts with Congrats. He went back to bed with Greta. Greta realized he was nominated when she woke up and she's been giving him the Emmy nominee treatment. He's disappointed the time between nom and ceremony is so short b/c he wanted to milk this. They talk to him about this being his first Lead nom. He says he was Lead but he notes he let the producers decide. He is happy to be in such good company in the Lead category.

AM says she was being driven to work at 6 in the morning after a late night at AMC, she was cranky. Then the producer called with the news than she called her hubby. She picked 5 shows and had the producers choose between them, they all chose the epi where Kendall finds out Zach died. Difference btw Supporting and Lead? She notes supporting is maybe a harder category to get into but there's something so prestigious about being in Lead. She says after 9 1/2 yeard of very hard work, 12 hour days crying about Zach, leaving her baby, moving to L.A. - it feels good to be rewarded with that. She got a lot of texts, kind of credited TK when talking to him for choosing to stay in NY thus the show giving her the material.

DM was coming out a Pilates class when she saw her phone. 10-11 Congrats messages. She thought AMC got extended or something. She opened JHC's message and saw she got a nomination. She discusses usually choosing scenes with Darnell, but she decided early on to go with Ricky Paull. She had some great scenes with him while going blind while being pregnant. Co-nominees Zenk, Flannery, Stafford and [her girl] Minshew all called her to eee. She's not used to talking to some of these ladies, so that was specials. Talks about her chat with Stafford.

MCE found out about her Supporting nod when her parents called her. Then she got all kind of calls, texts, messgaes. She talks about feeling really good about the scenes she submitted where Annie is in no makeup and losing it after cheating on Scott with JR. She's so happy to get a chance to cgill and celebrate with her castmates. She notes she was at the studio the other night, but this is different. She's going to the Emmy's with Stause. She hasn't picked a dress yet. She waxes poetic about being on the show for 4 years and getting 2 noms. SOD notes exactly like Josh Duhamel (fact checker: he got 3 noms). MCE loves the comparison but notes she needs a foot and a half (and a penis) to catch up to him.

Allen (Younger Actress) is not interviewed.

Exclusive: Three More Fan Faves Return to All My Children

All aboard the crazy train for Pine Valley! Josh Duhamel, Eva LaRue, Cady McClain and Thorsten Kaye aren't the only All My Children grads returning to the cancelled soap. An AMC rep tells TV Guide Magazine that the show will also bring back a trio of women known for playing sinfully delicious nutjobs: Jennifer Bassey (Marian Colby), Kate Collins (Janet "From Another Planet" Green) and Melissa Claire Egan (Annie Chandler) will all be seen again the week of July 25 — together!

The plot finds Marian, Janet and Annie being held at the Oak Haven psychiatric hospital where the presumed-dead Dixie Martin (McClain) is also under observation. The women find a way to escape the facility and will make their way to PV to reunite with their loved ones.

Bassey was last seen on AMC in 2009 when Marian tried to shoot Kendall (Alicia Minshew) and suffered a nervous breakdown. Collins' character was placed into custody in 2010 after stalking her own daughter. Egan left AMC just last March when Annie was committed to Oak Haven for kidnapping. She is currently in the running for a Daytime Emmy in the outstanding supporting actress category.

So who's next? Look for more great AMC stars to be added to the list of returning faves!

Spoilers From June 28th Issue Of SOD / SOW

Lorraine Broderick basically does an ode to David and Vincent. She licks her chops over the VI/SL yarn left to her by D & D. She thinks David is a delicious villain and the Jane blackmail is so him in top form. She notes he has chemistry with every woman on the show and she thinks every woman on the show would love to work with him. That aside, she pretty much eees over having SL/VI together. She notes that when Erica is really back on the canvas, there's going to be a lot with Erica/David. She thinks they're wonderful together and has big plans for both of them.

JR & Amanda have sex. Amanda is convinced Jake & Cara had sex. JR confides his own problems with Marissa and is surprisingly compassionate. They end up kissing. Amanda stops but JR points out Jake didn't stop. They have sex. Amanda's upset afterwards because it didn't really make her feel better, even though she's still convinced Jake cheated. JR is still being nice which he isn't usually after they have sex, so she calls him out on that. Amanda returns home where Jake is ready to spill the truth. They keep on getting interrupted. She blurts it out for him, he had sex with Cara. He's like no, we almost did but stopped. Amanda is guilt-ridden. CS is annoyed by this storyline thread. In her mind, what Jake/Cara did was cheating (the kiss & emotionally), more dangerous than JR/Amanda's connection. She's not condoning cheating for cheating BUT she's having a hard time playing this as written which is just b/c Jake didn't have sex it wasn't cheating and it's all on Amanda.

Walt Willey is also having a difficult time with his story. He knows in real-life a person wouldn't conclude a loved ones life was taken over by a twin, but this is a soap. Making David co-owner of the hospital is so not something Erica would do. He laughs at the notion of Jack committing "Erica" and her ending up in OH with Janet, but says Jack's priority is to not make Erica run away. "Erica" turns it around on Jack when he catches her about to take a drink with David. Willey groans about Jack's stupidity in letting her do that. Meanwhile, Krystal quits working for Jack due in part to he David stuff. Willey thinks Jack/Krystal have been completely dropped. By the end of week, Krystal does accept employment with Caleb.

Wk of 6/20 Jane asks Erica for David advice. Angie decides to start David's treatment. Ryan shares his David supicions with Jesse. Colby's singing gets to Asher. Kendall gives Greenlee advice about Madison. Bianca/Marissa leave on a trip.

AMC/OLTL get joint Editors' Choice in SOD for Good and Evil. OLTL for the Matthew/Eddie/Nate/Bo/Nora thread with Matthew collasping after Nate hit him for the whole Eddie situation. AMC for the Ricky/Kendall showdown (editor remains a bit anal about not offending Z/K fans).

SOD's AMC Editor still has her issues with the Erica/Jane story (Jane not being careful enough not to drink in public, etc) but she's enjoying SL's performance. Jane taking a liking to Greenlee but not being able to get away from Erica's kids fast enough. Her admiration for David.

The lovely song played a few time including during Jesse saying goodbye to Ellie was "Dust" by Ben West.

Eddie Matos talks about how wonderful SL is. She's so big but makes you feel anything but intimidated in scenes. He told her his bro was being honored in Florida and asked her if he bought a book would she sign it for him so he could put it up for the charity. She went to her dressing room, got a book she had in there and gave it to him. He was so touched he teared up.

CBL says she and AM taped the first scenes after the cancellation announcement (I'd estimate that was Ricky goes down week). She talks about how difficult it was to finish that day and its a testament to the actors on the show.

SOW does FYI with Jordi. He'd call Alicia if he ever needed bail money. His epitaph choice is cool. It's moe or less: I was blessed. So are you. Enjoy it. There's more Q&A's there. SOW notes David is a winner for figuring it all out abotu Jane. Erica, though, is a loser b/c David believes Jane about treating Erica right. SOW also ponders Pink (whose real name is a variation of Alicia) naming her new kid Willow like AMC's Alicia.

MAIL: A lot of mail about the cancellation. A fan just wants a happy Jerica ending. Fans are wondering what Dixie's return will mean for Tad and Cara. A fan gives kudos to CBL for her performances lately. Disappointed it took so long to give her meaty material.

Soaptown Loose Lips Spoilers

Melissa Clare Egan mention she is coming back and her first airdate is July 25th. Insiders say she is involved in an umbrella story which involves the three woman who breakout of Oak Haven as well as Dixie. The story is to include Tad, JR and maybe David along with some others possibilities. This story may last longer then expected due to what the writers have planned if all goes accordingly. I am hearing it will be the endgame for Tad and Dixie, and it seems they're going to fill up the remaining days with drop ins from returning vets to make the viewers happy if only for a momemt. But as of now the hatches are tighten down at AMC. One fan commented to me that the returns are only to distract from how bad the show really is and they may be right!!!......"We're not going to have everybody be happy and fade into the sunset," Mrs. Nixon says. "It's going to be very satisfying, but there are some things that one would want to watch in the following weeks"......... Eden Riegel Twittered: "What am I, the only person NOT going back to AMC? I propose me & Sarah Michelle Gellar do one day as extras. Binx and Kendall can look at us funny. Even if they did want these 2 back would CBS even let Eden cross over to ABC after all the bad blood of stealing actors from one another?...Did you notice Chrishell Stause new do on Emmy night? Loved it....What if Jane and David hit the sheets?

Jesse says there are better ways to handle the David problem and asks Jake to keep his eyes and ears open. Ryan tells Jesse about Erica and David spending the night together and they discuss how David is treating Angie’s blindness. David offers Madison some tips on dealing with Greenlee, but she wonders if he’s just using her to get under Greenlee’s skin. Greenlee speculates that “Erica” and David are having an affair. Bianca is shocked to learn that “Erica” spent the night with David and is frustrated that her mother keeps pushing Jackson away. When Angie busts Ryan snooping in David’s office, he admits he is trying to get the goods on David’s business with Erica. Angie agrees to help. David returns to his room to find a scantily clad Jane, looking for love. When he claims he has business to attend to, Jane feels rejected and accuses him of using her.

Meanwhile, Amanda’s symptoms grow more worrisome. Jake takes her to the hospital where Cara treats her. Amanda’s relief at learning she is not pregnant is short-lived when Cara reveals that her symptoms could be the result of HPV or cervical cancer.

Spoilers & Interview From July 12th SOD / SOW

SOD is an AMC cover previewing the end. Erica has the big picture, smaller pictures of Duhamel, Bianca/Marissa (Love at Last), Angie/Jesse (Huge Fallout) Zach/Kendall & Tad/Dixie (Happy Reunions). None of this is really previewed but LB does have an interview in there. A lot of AMC stories in both magazines.

David's master plan is...about a breakthrough in medicine he's discovered. It starts with Angie but it's bigger than that. To that end he has to try to keep an agitated Jane in line because he needs her influence as Erica to get this to fruition. VI waxes poetic about Broderick. He notes fans are enjoying the Jane/David dynamic. David knows Jane's plan won't be able to last forever (somebody will figure it out) but his goal is to ride it out with her to get his breakthrough to completion and revealed. Jane is feeling David now that they've had sex and he has to reel her in. David is kind of enjoying messing with Jack about Erica being into him b/c he's David, lol. Jack finds out they spent the night together. Greenlee confronts David who goads her in his typical way. Ryan searches his office. Angies catches him. Will she turn Ryan in or help him?

This week Marissa backs off JR suddenly and is jealous of Bianca dating another woman. Marissa is flustered when she realizes just how much Bianca helped JR. She really just jumped in bed w/him to "reclaim" her hetero-ness not b/c it felt right. Knee-jerk reaction. Then there's the date. Bianca's date calls Marissa out on Marissa being jealous and Marissa is definitely bothered by the date. Bianca admits she helped JR b/c she couldn't do it herself b/c of Marissa's sexuality. Bianca tells Marissa they need their distance which upsets Marissa.

Amanda isn't pregnant, but all is not good news as Cara reveals to her that [Amanda] may have an STD. Stause once again is agitated by the fact that what Jake did with Cara is not seen as cheating by Amanda. It is to Chrishell. She thinks a lot of women agree with her too. She just would have liked more balanced writing instead of that angle being completely dropped by Amanda. She goes on to joke about how stupid JR/Amanda are for not using protection as this has happend before - the pregnancy scare. Jake takes her to the hospital and has no cluse she could be pregnant with another mans baby. Again, she isn't. It may be an STD. Cara agrees to keep quiet.

I'll go back to the OP. But first the Lorraine Broderick interview...

At the time of this interview she only had 3-4 weeks left of writing.

She had no idea about the cancellation. She got the call a week before and was working on her storylines that weekend and then the news came down. Her mission then became to give the show a conclusion it deserves and satisfy long-term fans. It's the ame thing to her. The core characters, the history, the relationships in particular - digging into all those things is how she found the story. It would have been that way with or w/o the cancellation. She talks with Agnes about three times a week and she participates in all their note meetings.

She goes on for quite a while on Cady, Tad/Dixie. She thinks Tad/Dixie are one of the great love stories but also loves what D & D with Tad (bringing him frontburner) and Tad & Cara. (She also talks about working very closely with D & D while she was head-writing last time.) She thinks it's the beginning of a wonderful triangle. She says she feels about Tad/Dixie how she felt about Adam/Brooke and getting Cady back was equivalent to how she felt about getting Julia Barr back when she was head-writing last. Due to all the history she felt there were things that needed to be rectified. Everybody on the writing team was on board. She talks about how she was there when Dixie was created and Cady was a 17 year old, before she was at AMC, MEK was her student at the University she worked for. There's going to be wonderful events for the Chandler family as well.

Erica. For some reason she brings up that she thinks D&D did a good job with Erica/Caleb, but probably in reference to Erica's need to challenge all the men in her life due to the fact that she can't be loved enough. LB notes Erica loves Jack with all her heart but that something that won't change about her. She talks about Nixon's deep understanding of Erica. She thinks the story that was started is perfect to go into that fabric of Erica. They'll resolve the Jane story in a fun/interesting way. They're going to be able to start fresh with Erica after this story. The exploration of what this situation would do to Erica's psyche. She's excited to be back but there'll be a sense of betrayal and it'll color the relationships.

Lorraine Broderick Interview Continued...

Jangie. Powerhouse actors. incredible characters. They're already digging into how to resolve that in a very dramatic & interesting way. She can't wait to see what DW/DM do with this material. She cries when she's writing the current material for Jangie. It's going to be good.

Zach/Kendall, wonderful couple. Kaye, terrific actor, she's thrilled he's back and he'll be working a lot. They've started the writing for him. She notes it's a gift to be able to work with all these unresolved situations with important characters.

Leo/Josh. Thrill, gift to the writers & fans, all the returns. Some of the returns will be surprises.

The rest is general. Her daughte ris getting married at the end of July so taking on this task wasn't the easiest decision but she doesn't regret it. Despite the circumstances, it's a wonderful experience for everybody involved to be working together like this. She has all this old history (Brooke/Tom, Erica, the Martins) and Addie Walsh her right hand woman has all the more current one (Z/K, R/G). She's also working closely with Jeff B in writing. Then there's Agnes who is the Erica encyclopedia. They got all the history there. The history all of them have together helps them write situations/stories that really speak to all these characters.

She says Agnes will contribute to have both AMC & OLTL end and that's how it should be.

Wk. of 7/4 Con't. We learn Griffin never went to Chile from sleuth Ryan. Kendall is surprised to see him at the hospital where he doesn't reveal why he returned. He does visit her later and after a lot of talking finally admits he returned for her. How will she repsond?

Liza is fired. Caleb offers a job. Erica starts writing a book and plays on Ben's sympathies. Asher is becoming dependant on pain pills. Tad wants a divorce.

Josh Duhamel talks about how nervous he was to be working at that daytime pace again. He loves on Leo/Greenlee/RB (<--who he taped with) but won't reveal if Leo is alive. Says he and RB just fell into their old pattern like it was yesterday.

Catherine Kresge will play Bianca's girlfriend wk of 7/4

AMC editor in SOD thinks the JR/Amanda hook-up was unnecessary. She wrote this two days before it aired. It didn't ring true. Cheapens Amanda and her marriage.

AMC editor in SOW is loving seeing David back on the FB and says from what he's heard it's just the beginning.

Walt waxes poetic about Lucci getting to do this double role.

Cady says she didn't attend the Emmy's b/c it was sad for her. So many people out of work, all the drunk people in part due to that, lol.

Many, many Emmy pictures and Emmy stuff in both mags.

MAIL: Fans enjoing the Minx (Bianca/Marissa). A Jerica fan is upset about the current story with Erica/Jane/David. A Jerica fans is happy about all the returns but wishes the writers would give them hope about Jerica. A lot of mail about the Daytime Emmy's sucking. A fan asserts that Jake was born Joey, and Joey had Downs Syndrome. She'd like that acknowledged on the show. A fan would like the dead to remains dead in PV, points out Zach.

Kelly Ripa Confirms: No AMC Return For Hayley & Mateo

Kelly Ripa and her husband, Mark Consuelos, will not be making a Pine Valley comeback before AMC takes its final bow on ABC in September. "We just can't be in California when they need us to be," she reports. "It's so upsetting, it really is. The good news is that we were there for the 40th anniversary [in January 2010]. We got to do our big good-bye scenes. It was a moment and it ended on a high note for us. It would be hard to recreate that anyway, but it's unfortunate because I really wanted to be a part of it."

Eva La Rue (Maria) Dishes On Her Return To AMC

Tuesday, July 19, will be a big day for Eva La Rue. Not only is she returning to the set of CSI: MIAMI to begin her exciting seventh season as heroine Natalia Boa Vista, but she'll also be seen resuming her role as ALL MY CHILDREN's Dr. Maria Santos that day! "Maria is still in California -- I only did a phone call," La Rue previews of her first two episodes. "but I know that my storyline has to do with David and the Orpheus Project and kind of bringing that down."

While bummed that her real-life pals Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley) and Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo) had not been able to join her for this stint, La Rue was pleased to see other aspects of Maria's history being utilized and hopes to reunite with former castmates like Alicia Minshew (Kendall) and Thorsten Kaye (Zach) when she returns for three more episodes this August. "I think it is personal for Maria because remember when David brought her back from the dead and made her believe that she was a murderer?" La Rue asks. "He made her be on the run, and that is how she met Zach. So she has always a hated David."

The actress may not have yet shared any on-screen reunions, but off screen, La Rue had a great time being on the AMC set. "It felt like old home week," she says. "And it was really exciting for me to hang out and chit chat with everybody and catch up. I'm really looking forward to going back again."

Erica's friends and family stage a different type of intervention.....Erica regains control of her fate and holds the fate of those around her in her hands......Life becomes a lot more complicated for Jesse once Maya settles in as Lucy's nanny.....I think it's a pretty safe bet David will have something to do with Dixie's story. He mentioned experiments and human guinea pigs. I think that's where Eva LaRue's Maria and possibly Angie will be involved in too...Just a reminder that the AMC Fan weekend is coming and the FCP is gathering up some past characters to join in on the Past Actor Event July 29th so if you haven't gotten your tickets yet or haven't made plans to go this is the time. You will be amazed what past actors were found.


Scoop on the New Web Version of All My Children


Can Prospect Park, the company taking ABC's All My Children and One Life to Live to the internet, possibly be ready to make the move with AMC as soon as September? Hard to believe, but that's what TV Guide Magazine is hearing.

Word is, the production company intends to waste no time — or lose any momentum — and will launch the reimagined AMC on Monday, September 26, just three days after the soap ends its network run. There's also highly reliable buzz — unconfirmed by Prospect Park — that Susan Lucci has agreed to move on with the show, though to what extent she'll participate or for how long isn't clear. Most (if not all) of the soap's other top stars have yet to enter negotiations.

We also hear Prospect Park plans to retain current head writer Lorraine Broderick and executive producer Julie Carruthers. But are there major rewrites in the works for the ABC finale? Broderick, working in tandem with AMC's legendary creator Agnes Nixon, had planned to tie up most of the major storylines with nice tidy bows. Now such a finale is problematic, since creating a few cliffhangers would encourage viewers to check out the internet version.

One more thing: There are also some hard-to-believe whispers going around that Sarah Michelle Gellar has agreed to return to AMC for a farewell appearance before the show leaves ABC — a nifty trick since the character she once played, Erica's daughter Kendall, now belongs (lock, stock and Emmy noms) to Alicia Minshew. But, hey, if this is true we trust the brilliant Broderick and Nixon to somehow make it work— they're bringing back Josh Duhamel as the dead Leo du Pres in a way that's ingenious!

More Returns....

AMC confirms that Julia Barr (Brooke), David Canary (Adam), original cast member Ray MacDonnell (Joe) and Lee Meriwether (Ruth) are all coming back. No first air dates are available yet, but all four will be back on-screen in September. "I can't wait to work with David again!" cheers Jacob Young (JR).


Its about time that we got confirmation on Canary. It just wouldnt have been the same without him. Happy about the others too but Canary was a major missing piece.

VI updates his status with the show

Vincent Irizarry (David, AMC) has released a statement on Facebook regarding his status with the show. Irizarry wrote: "I've been getting a lot of questions from many of you, asking 2 things: am I going to the AMC Fan Event, and will I be staying with the show when it transitions to the internet? The first is easy, yes, I plan on being at the AMC Fan Event at the end of the month. The second, not so easy. Some have even informed me that it was reported somewhere that I'm staying with the show. That is not at all true at this time. Until I hear from the new producers to learn what they're offering, I have to work under the assumption that my contract with the show ends on Aug 31 and plan accordingly, which I am."

Soaptown Loose Lips Spoilers

A setsider tells us ALL of the AMC actors are free of their contracts as of Sept some earlier, meaning Prospect Park would have to start from scratch. Walt Willey made mention that no actors were contacted about contracts and he said all the actors are in the dark, looks like it all boils down to....Cha Ching $$$$$$$....... With the recent announcement that Debbi Morgan is going to YR (this happened before the turnover to online) who else will jump ship? Does no Angie mean no Jesse? Rumor has it that Darnell has been approached by YR......One actor seems to be staying, Cameron Mathison twittered "I love my job at AMC and I will definitely consider staying! Tell you more soon. You guys probably made this happen with your campaigns!".............By now you know David had something to do with Dixie. Pay attention. David has a card from Project Orpheus, Griffith has one as does Ben and but how are they all connected? Is Zach being held captive also?


Duhamel Dishes On AMC Return!

He's become a bona-fide movie star since exiting ALL MY CHILDREN, but when Josh Duhamel (Leo) heard that the soap would be going off the air, he immediately wanted to revisit the series that launched his acting career. His alter ego has been presumed dead since Leo plummeted over a waterfall in 2002 while trying to save new wife Greenlee from his maniacal mother, Vanessa. But as Duhamel himself tells Soaps In Depth, "if there was a chance that I was still alive, then I wanted to go back and do something. I really enjoyed those three years that I had on AMC, and I've kept up with a lot of the people there."

Just a few days after Duhamel placed a call to casting director Judy Blye Wilson, "they called back and said they'd love to do it." While we couldn't get the Transformers star to divulge any storyline specifics -- not even whether Leo returns in the flesh or as a ghost -- Duhamel does promise that his character's reunion with Greenlee "is respectful to what's going on in her life now."

Look for Duhamel to appear on-screen for a handful of episodes starting Thursday, August 4. And for more of our interview with the star, check out the ABC issues of Soaps In Depth on sale July 25 and August 8!


Alexa Havins and Justin Bruening will appear in several episodes this September.

Alexa Havins in "Torchwood"Two vets from ABC's All My Children will be making their way back to their old stomping grounds before it says its final farewell.

Alexa Havins, currently on Starz's Torchwood: Miracle Day, and real-life husband Justin Bruening will reprise their roles as Babe Chandler and Jamie Martin on the daytime drama this September. Both will appear in several episodes.

Havins was nominated for a Daytime Emmy in 2005 for her role, which she played from 2003-2007. In 2008, Babe was injured after several tornadoes hit Pine Valley, which ultimately ended in her death.

Bruening began playing Tad and Brooke's son in 2003 before departing in 2007, when his character left to work at an AIDS clinic in Africa.

All My Children was one of two ABC daytime soaps that was canceled, the other being One Life to Live. All My Children will air its final episode on Friday, Sept. 23. Several actors who got their starts on the soap have signed on to return, including Josh Duhamel, Eva La Rue, Carol Burnett and Leven Rambin. One Life to Live is set to end in January 2012.


RUMOR REPORT: Has All My Children's Two-Hour TV Finale Been SCRAPPED?!

Remember that two-hour finale for All My Children I told you would be happening? Well it looks like it's being scrapped, now that AMC is set to continue online, courtesy of new production company Prospect Park. According to sources, AMC will now only be getting a normal one-hour finale on ABC Daytime.

In other news, I'm hearing what was planned to be lengthier story arcs featuring such fan faves as Adam Chandler (David Canary) and Brooke English (Julia Barr) had to be shortened due to budgetary constraints.

"Agnes[Nixon] and Lorraine [Broderick] wanted Adam and Brooke for three weeks, but it ends up being only a handful of episodes, because of the budget," says a source.

All My Children's star-studded network television finale airs Sept. 23. Prospect Park has stated they plan to launch an online continuation of the serial just three days later on Sept. 26.
