Skating with the Stars
Here's the cold, hard fact about Skating with the Stars' Rebecca Budig: She skated as a kid, but she assures you that gives her no advantage. Why? "We all have to be able to skate somewhat!" she tells TVGuide.com. "I can't even imagine if [I didn't know how to skate and] had to learn from scratch. It'd be even harder." Learning toe loops and salchows isn't the only difficult aspect of the upcoming ABC show for the actress, who's partnered with pairs specialist Fred Palascak — Budig plans to continue working on All My Children during her run on Skating. Find out how she's juggling acting and skating, who she thinks her biggest competition is, and why she wants to make her sister jealous.

Forget polished oak floors and mirror ball trophies. Think cold, hard ice and blades of glory. ABC is hoping that their latest reality show — Skating With the Stars (not to be confused with Fox's failed 2006 show Skating With Celebrities), premiering November 22 — will do for the toe loop what...
Is Greens the killer? The murder of David Hayward on ABC's All My Children takes a trippy turn next week when his wife Greenlee — played by Rebecca Budig — admits she forged several letters to make it appear that the evil doc committed suicide. But is the guy really dead? A rep for Vincent Irizarry, who played David, recently posted a statement on the actor's official Facebook page saying Irizarry was "still in negotiations" with the show — suggesting this might be yet another phony "death" in Pine Valley. Irizarry then issued a follow-up statement claiming this announcement was "unauthorized and premature" but never said it was untrue. What ev. TV Guide Magazine spoke to Budig in the midst of the Irizarry hoo-hah and got her take on the whodunit. Guess which soap she hopes to land on if Greens gets the electric chair!
Rebecca Budig and Bob Guiney

Budig filed papers at Los Angeles Superior Court last Thursday, citing irreconcilable differences. The All My Children star listed Sept. 7, 2009 as the date of separation and has requested the court ...
Now playing in this week's Mitovich Mega Minute:
• The Unit gets hit with a bombshell (... or two)!
• Who's returning for Prison Break's big finale ... and who isn't?
• Already I have told you about soap opera superstar Rebecca Budig's visit to How I Met Your Mother. Now get a heads-up on the clue that will be dropped at the very end of her episode.
Watch and discuss the new MMM after the jump.
Fresh off her second stint as All My Children's "real Greenlee," Rebecca Budig has grabbed a guest-starring gig on CBS' How I Met Your Mother.
In one of this season's final episodes, Budig will play Holly, a new girlfriend of Ted's, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.
The casting of Budig is perhaps 17 percent extra-interesting to longtime AMC viewers who know that Abigail Spencer (who played Pine Valley's virginal Becca Tyree) also has "dated" Ted. Spencer played "Blah Blah," a Season 3 girlfriend whose name Ted could never remember.
The same two actresses sharing a Josh (Radnor vs. Duhamel)... . I could go on for days with the coinky-dinks. But of greater/actual concern to the HIMYM fan is the fact that ...
Debbi Morgan by Steve Fenn/ABC
Over the past couple of months, many daytime greats have returned to the suds some in old roles, some in new ones. So how are these prodigal kids doing? Michael Logan shares his take.Debbi Morgan and Darnell Williams (All My Children) It's been worth a gazillion plot contrivances to see Angie back with her "dead" Jesse after 20 long years. Oh, how we've longed for her blazing soul and Earth Mother passion! How much we've missed his sass and cool and cut-to-the-chase honesty! And aren't they still incomprehensibly beautiful together? Watching these legends reunite in that terrific train-station scene made me realize how starved we soap fans are for true, epic love. Clearly, you can go home again.RATING: 5 out of 5 starsTamara Braun (Days of our Lives) She was the best and most electrifying of the four gals who have played Carly on General Hospital save your irate letters, you can't change my mind! Now she's opened up a big can o' whoop-ass on Salem as Ava, a bodacious b...
