All My Children
Four words sum up the love Daytime Confidential’s Jamey Giddens has for soaps — “Santa Barbara” and “Anne Heche” (ex-Vicky and Marley Hudson, Another World). NBC has finally set the premiere date for Heche's comedy, Save Me, which means Jamey must be in heaven! (Editor's Note: He isn't. He'd rather she be on The Good Wife, Scandal or Revenge.)
Okay, okay, I will be the first to admit it. I was more than a little cynical when I first learned Prospect Park was making a second stab at bringing back All My Children and One Life to Live. There, are you happy?
With only a matter of days left before the soaps return on April 29, I have to say, I am hella impressed with what I'm seeing so far! Today, TOLN revealed a trailer video for the new season of All My Children. Although I will argue anyone down that it was only my pollen allergies, a couple of tears were a' shed.
My DARLING, BIANCA (Eden Riegel)!!!!! ANGIE (Debbi Morgan)!!! DIXIE (Cady McClain)!!! PETEY (Rob Wilson)!!! PETEY (Rob Wilson)!!! Did I mention, PETEY (Rob Wilson)??? Watch the video after the jump.
Since news of Prospect Park's plans to reboot One Life to Live and All My Children first began to trickle out, one big question has remained — how would our neighbors to the North watch the sudsers? That question has finally been answered. FX Canada has signed an exclusive, North American deal to air the resurrected soaps!
That's right Canucks, you will be able to catch every scandalous hook-up and over-the-top return from the dead when OLTL and AMC return on April 29. AMC will air every day at noon EST/2 pm PST on the cabler. OLTL will air at 12:30/2:30 PST.
“All My Children and One Life to Live are a unique addition to FX Canada’s slate of provocative and critically-acclaimed dramas,” said Scott Moore, President of Broadcast, Rogers Media. “As the only television channel in North America broadcasting these new series, FX Canada continues its commitment to deliver exclusive, premium content to its viewers.” READ MORE
You can tell soaps are in vogue again, simply by witnessing how often they're being spoofed by comedians. This past weekend, Saturday Night Live did a sketch featuring host Vince Vaughan starring in the Weather Channel's premiere sudser, Stormy Skies. I'd put it on my DVR! Watch the sudsy insanity ensue after the jump.
Have Kelly Ripa and Regis Philbin kept in touch since he left Live! With Regis and Kelly? Apparently not so much. When asked by The Hollywood Reporter, if she and Philbin have kept in contact, Ripa replied:
"I haven't seen him, no."
Do you think it's strange the former co-hosts haven't seen one another? Watch the video below, then sound off in the comments!
