What has it been like for Susan Lucci since ABC pulled the plug on All My Children? The soap legend dished her post-Pine Valley life on a recent installment of OWN's Oprah: Where Are They Now?
Lucci admitted when her soap was cancelled, she worried she would never work again. That certainly hasn't been the case, with the former Erica Kane pulling double duty on Devious Maids and ID's Deadly Affairs. Watch Lucci reveal her thoughts on AMC's departure and share where she watched the final episode below!
Devious Maids and All My Children legend Susan Lucci stopped by The Wendy Williams Show Thursday, to help the talk show host celebrate her birthday.
During her appearance, La Lucci flipped the script and placed Williams in the ‘Hot Seat’, a game she plays with her guests. For Williams’ last question, Lucci asked the birthday girl what her most awkward encounter was with a celebrity. Williams told Lucci and the audience about a time she ran into talk show titan Oprah Winfrey. Williams recalled:
"I was coming down the escalator and she was going up the escalator in a publishing building. I forgot exactly what I was doing there, but that’s where Harpo's...where her magazine is here in Manhattan. And we were the only two people in the lobby other than security downstairs, and for them I guess it was like watching a TV show. You know, like okay, 'Here it goes.' And I said to my publicist [who] was with me, I said, “There’s Oprah hold in your stomach!”
