Kelley Hensley and Walt Willey
The wait is over! TV Guide Magazine has an exclusive look at the first three episodes of Tainted Dreams, the much-anticipated, soap-within-a-soap webseries from Emmy-winning producer/director Sonia Blangiardo (All My Children, One Life to Live) that boasts more stars than there are in the heavens...
Cameron Mathison says there's still hope for Ryan and Greenlee to be together when All My Children premieres online.
"[Rebecca Budig] is open to ... possibilities," he says. "I would say to the fans to try to be patient."
All My Children comes to an end: Creator Agnes Nixon and the cast look back
Susan Lucci's lovely, heartfelt new memoir All My Life (It Books/HarperCollins) hits the market March 29 and is sure to be treasured by her many fans. There's some surprising backstage drama here, most notably when the All My Children star recalls her controversial abortion story line in the 1970s, and reveals how she suffered a miscarriage just as the plot was unfolding on air. (No one at the soap knew she was expecting.) And Lucci finally opens up about her long string of Emmy losses, saying her "angst was only multiplied" by the media fuss. But she's the first to admit her life is blessed. No ghastly scandals. No wrenching regrets. No devastatingly dumb decisions. The same can't be said for Erica Kane. On March 29, the Pine Valley siren — already married 11 times — is so determined to prove she's not in love with Caleb (Michael Nouri) that she pushes her fiancé Jack (Walt Willey) into getting hitched ASAP. And off they go to the isle of St. Barts for the ceremony. TV Guide Magazine spoke with La Lucci, the uncontested queen of daytime, about Erica's new royal mess.
All My Children
All My Children has spent months percolating a romance between Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and her crusty mountain man Caleb (Michael Nouri) and so far her fiancé Jack — played by the marvelous Walt Willey — has remained pretty clueless. But he's about to wake up and smell the triangle. This week, David (Vincent Irizarry) comes out of his coma and remembers it was Kendall (Alicia Minshew) who shot him, and that finds an emotionally frazzled Erica leaning on Caleb, rather than Jack. On February 1, Jack catches the two of them in an embrace. TV Guide Magazine had a chat with Willey who — just like a whole lotta Jack and Erica fans — ain't too wild about this turn of events...
Nobody needs a Christmas miracle more than All My Children's Kendall Hart (Alicia Minshew). She's about to receive one — but it's not the one she's hoping for. On the soap's December 27 episode, the Pine Valley heroine, still in deep mourning over the plane-crash death of her husband Zach (Thorsten Kaye), has a visit from Father Clarence, the magical, mystical priest who always appears on the show at holiday time to help those in need. (The terrific Malachy McCourt who played the role for many years had to bow out this time. He's replaced by Michael McCarthy).
Tyler and Nat are over
Sadly, life is imitating soaps for General Hospital stars Tyler Christopher and Natalia Livingston, whose love is on the rocks both in real life and in reel life. To refresh your memory, Tyler and Natalia were playfully "outed" as a couple during Walt Willey's faux talk show at last November's ABC Super Soap Weekend in Orlando, Fla. A setside spy now confirms to TVGuide.com that their approximately nine-month relationship has reached its conclusion for reasons I'm far too gentlemanly to pry into. (Translation: Um, I actually don't know.)
Fans figured Tyler and Natalia were in Splitsville when the twosome separately attended GH's annual fan-club weekend last month in Southern California. Livingston, a recent Daytime Emmy winner, was also conspicuously absent from her BF's personal fan gathering. (Back when Tyler was dating Vanessa Marcil — the Las Vegas costar formerly known as Brenda Barrett — they always escorte
