All My Children's Jesse Hubbard (Darnell Williams) just can't seem to get a handle on this co-parenting thing. First he misses out on Frankie's formative years, due to that whole, pesky, presumed death business. Then he neglects to tell Angie (Debbi Morgan) he fathered a daughter with another woman during said presumptive death.
No sooner than the Mrs. got past all of that, did this fool lie to Angie about their baby daughter dying and switching the deceased brat with some other tyke!
To be fair, Jesse was only trying to surprise his beloved by flying her adopted daughter Cassandra (Sal Stowers) home from Paris. The problem is, instead of netting some serious frequent flyer miles, Cassie wound up sold as a sex slave!
The week of June 10, Jesse will do the unthinkable to bring Cassandra home safe. Will the pact he makes with Russian money launderer and sex trafficker Uri (Martin Harvey) blow up in the cop's face? READ MORE
Since talk of Prospect Park renewing their efforts to bring back One Life to Live and All My Children first began, the production company has benefited tremendously from guerilla-style, social media marketing from the sudsers' passionate stars. Legendary actors Vincent Irizarry, Cady McClain, Jill Larson, Debbi Morgan, Kassie DePaiva and Robin Strasser have led the charge in spreading positive news about the endeavors. They've been aided by newcomers like Rob Wilson, Sal Stowers, Eric Nelsen and Rob Gorrie.
Many of these stars have been working overtime to quell panic from fans since Prospect Park announced they were cutting their weekly number of episodes in half. Below are a sample of their tweets and Facebook posts:
Get ready for a blast from the past to hit Pine Valley! The Online Network has announced All My Children is bringing on back Matthew Cowles in his signature role of Billy Clyde Tuggle. Cowles sent the soap world into a frenzy after he was spotted last month at TOLN’s advanced screening event of AMC and One Life to Live. READ MORE
Angie (Debbi Morgan) tried to explain to Cara (Lindsay Hartley) why she helped David (Vincent Irizarry) get out of jail. Angie believed he deserved a chance to rebuild his life, but Cara didn’t agree at all.
AJ (Eric Nelsen) went BALLISTIC on Hunter (Daniel Covin) for treating Miranda (Denyse Tontz) so badly. In the middle of Jane’s Addiction, he called the boy a “pussy.” I haven’t decided what I think of all the swearing on Prospect Park’s soaps. While there has been some very well timed swearing, sometimes it has felt like the writers on both soaps were trying too hard. I don’t think they’ve found a good balance yet, but I'm sure they will.
One thing is certain, All My Children is powering through Miranda’s storyline. It felt more than a little fast for Miranda to go from hopelessly enchanted with Hunter to the aftermath of being humiliated in five episodes. I would have expected it to be stretched out longer.
AJ wasn’t the only member of the family to go OFF. Dixie (Cady McClain) walked into JR’s (Ryan Bittle) bedroom and discovered David with his hands around JR’s neck. She IMMEDIATELY started shouting bloody murder. Angie and Cara rushed into the room, where David explained he was feeling JR’s pulse. He told them he’d seen JR move. READ MORE
