Another ex-ABC soaper makes good! Deadline is reporting All My Children's Denise Vasi has been tapped for the lead role in VH1's sexy, fun dramedy Single Ladies. Vasi's new character Raquel will fill the void left by Val (Stacey Dash).
Considering how harsh we've been here at Daytime Confidential about Vasi's acting chops as displayed on AMC, I'm sure some of you are expecting this to begin the portion of the blog post where I start freaking out about her joining one of my guilty pleasure sudsers, but nah.
All My Children star, Denise Vasi released a statement to Russell Simmons' Global Grind in response to her sudser's cancellation news. Vasi stated:
My sadness is for my crew and the fans. All the men and women who are losing their jobs due to the show's cancellation. They have families to support, it's absolutely heartbreaking!
The fans ... My God, they are just so emotionally devastated and outraged. There is no other fan like a soap opera fan. They are die-hard. Committed to everything we do. I feel bad for them because I know they feel like they are losing a piece of their own lives.
I feel so blessed to have been a part of iconic television history and to have had 3+ wonderful years working alongside so many amazing people. We have built friendships that will last a lifetime and that alone is priceless.
I am so thankful for everything All My Children brought to my life. READ MORE
