As I was watching ABC’s new What If webisodes I couldn’t help but notice that Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Erica’s (Susan Lucci) elevator was stuck on the first floor and never actually moved during the entire episode, even though that's what we were led to believe.
You’ll notice Sonny enters the elevator on the first floor and stops it himself before trying to grope Erica. After she pushes him away he restarts the elevator, but it becomes stuck, kicking off Sonny’s claustrophobia. Unfortunately, according to the elevator’s floor indicator the elevator never actually moved and everything that took place was while they were still stuck on the main level of the building. Why then did it take over an hour for them to be rescued? It can’t possibly be that hard to find a crowbar or have Jason rush to Sonny's rescue by pulling the doors apart himself.

All My Children’s Susan Lucci is set to make a guest appearance on TV Land’s breakout hit Hot in Cleveland starring Betty White, Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves and Wendie Malick.
On Hot in Cleveland Wendie Malick plays a former soap diva by the name of Victoria Chase who has been so desperate for the public’s adoration, after the cancellation of her soap, that she's gone on big box shopping sprees because she was mobbed there by her former fans for autographs. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to bet Lucci’s time on Hot in Cleveland will play into a Victoria Chase storyline.
ABC rolled out three of its highly anticipated What If web episodes featuring characters from All My Children, General Hospital and One Life to Live in “what if” scenarios where two characters meet by happenstance. In my favorite “What if” so far, One Life to Live’s Todd The Psychotic One Manning (Trevor St. John) gets General Hospital’s Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) taken into custody by an air marshal after he manipulates Spinelli into making a scene during their flight.

In celebration of All My Children's 40th anniversary, the sudser has released 40 memorable photos, available for purchase at abcdaytimefans.com. Fans can obtain pictures of past and present stars, including snapshots of the face of daytime, Susan Lucci. At a press conference, Lucci dished to Fancast's Sara Bibel about how the photos took her on a trip down memory lane. Says Lucci,
I remember those beginning rehearsals and the beginning company of actors. When I see a picture like this, I think of so many scenes with Mona (Fran Heflin). I think of Ruth Warwick. It was a different time. We shot as if it were a play, from beginning to end. We would get our notes, our criticisms, as a company of actors. It was a bonding experience to be humiliated in front of each other that way. But it was a great opportunity to learn as a young actress from very experienced actors and actresses, to hear Ruth Warwick talk about Orson Welles… to hear Fran Heflin talk about being on Broadway with Marlon Brando.
The diva of daytime opens up on working with AMC newcomer Michael Nouri.
Veteran primetime actor Michael Nouri gave new All My Children leading lady and the rest of the daytime community mad props in a recent interview with Zap2it.com. The Brothers and Sisters guest star, who appeared on Search for Tomorrow in the 70's, compared and contrasted what it was like for soap actors then and now.
"I have great respect for the people who do daytime television," Nouri adds. "Back in the days when I did 'Search,' we had teleprompters (displays showing dialogue or other instructions) ... which never worked for me. I found them to be very distracting.
"Now actors have to learn pages and pages of dialogue, and I'm not used to that. We'll see how that goes for me. Susan (Lucci) is going to be my teacher." READ MORE
