RUMOR REPORT: Are Bree Williamson and Alicia Minshew Exiting OLTL and AMC Before They Move to The Web?By Jamey Giddens on July 21, 2011
One Life to Live could soon be minus a Jess, Bess and a Tess. Now wouldn't that just be a mess? The new issue of Soap Opera Weekly has an item marked "RUMORVILLE" that states there's buzz Bree Willliamson could be leaving the role of Jessica Buchanan once OLTL ends its television run this January.
Meanwhile, my sources are telling me All My Children star Alicia Minshew (Kendall) is likely to exit the popular role of Kendall Hart Slater prior to AMC making the jump online.
"Lish is leaving," says the setsider. "She's only staying until the end of the TV broadcast." READ MORE
Will the real Kendall Hart please stand up? One Life to Live has two actors playing Todd, so why can't All My Children have two actresses playing Kendall? Okay, so that probably won't be the scenario when and if Sarah Michelle Gellar makes a cameo appearance on All My Children before the show jumps to the web.
According to TV Guide's Michael Logan, the A-lister who orignated the role of Erica Kane's off kilter, hellcat daughter, has possibly agreed to appear on the series before it leaves the Mouse House airwaves. How awesome would it be to see Kendall (Alicia Minshew) and Gellar's character get into a bitchfight? Watch a clip of Gellar's Kendall raising Kane with Erica (Susan Lucci) and Myrtle (the late Eileen Herlie) after the jump!
Good news for fans of All My Children’s Thorsten Kaye. According to Soap Opera Digest, the ABC soap has asked Kaye to return to the soap opera. But does Kaye’s return mean that Zendall will reunite? According to ABC Soaps in Depth, whether-or-not Zendall reunites is still in question to be answered.
Thorsten Kaye -- who exited the soap last year when his alter ego's plane went down -- is returning to help wrap up AMC's final months. But since the body of Kendall's presumed-dead husband body was never recovered, will Zach return to Pine Valley in the flesh, or be a figment of his widow's imagination
Kendall has this feeling that something big is going to happen on Christmas Eve and when Father Clarence shows up at her door she thinks he's going to tell her that Zach (Thorston Kaye) is somehow still alive, since they never found his body," says head writer Dave Kreizman. "Unfortunately, Clarence can't help Kendall with that, but he does lead her to the journal Zach had been writing — one that details his feelings for her."

Alicia Minshew on The Possible End of AMC's Zendall: "Before There Was Zach, Kendall Was Fine on Her Own"By Jamey Giddens on September 24, 2010
Alicia Minshew addressed fans concerns over long time leading man Thorsten Kaye's status at All My Children in the latest issue of CBS Soaps in Depth.
"Zach and Kendall have been Zach and Kendall for five years so [fans are] used to that, but I sort of have to remind them that before there was Zach, Kendall was fine on her own."
The Vivian Leigh doppelganger went on to gently remind fans of Kendall's past romances with Ryan (Cameron Mathison) and tryst with JR (Jacob Young) in an effort to assure them that their girl would be okay if Kaye opts not to continue appearing on the West Coast-based sudser. Personally, I am just ITCHIN' for AMC to bring back Kendall's gothic, Hungarian first love Anton Marick. Just think of say, Antonio Sabato Jr. or Tom Pelphrey opposite Minshew as Anton, who returns to Pine Valley to reclaim Wildwind and Kendall's wild heart!
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.
