Lacey Chabert Isn't a Mean Girl at All

Lacey Chabert, Hello Sister, Goodbye Life!

Oh, how Party of Five's sweet Claudia has grown up. In the nearly six years since the sibling sudser aired its swan song, Lacey Chabert has gotten wild with the Thornberrys, at one point found herself Lost in Space, and then fell in with some Mean Girls. This Sunday at 7 pm/ET, Chabert stars in ABC Family's Hello Sister, Goodbye Life!, a TV-movie about a snarky coed forced to watch over her 7-year-old half sister — with barely an assist from mom Wendie Malick — when tragedy strikes. I have to think that having Just Shoot Me's Wendie Malick play your mom was a big incen read more

All My Children's Jacob Young...

Jacob Young, All My Children

All My Children's Jacob Young (J.R. Chandler) is the latest New York soap star with plans to moonlight on Broadway. He starts a 10-week run on May 9 in the stage production of Disney's Beauty and the Beast. His incandescent role? Lumiere, the French candlestick who roots for his beastly boss to win Belle's heart.

"I'll have to learn to work with pyrotechnics — actual fire — and act with my hands above my head the whole time," Young tells with a laugh. "It'll be challenging. I'll also be doing AMC and the play simultaneously, which means a grueling schedule. You might say I'm burning the candle at both ends!" read more

In's weekly Soaps...

In's weekly Soaps Poll, we asked suds fans to weigh in on All My Children's tale of Erica Kane's "unaborted" son, Dr. Josh Madden. A whopping 70 percent rejected the rewriting of such a vital piece of AMC history. (Susan Lucci's Erica had TV's first legal abortion back in 1973. Only now it turns out the fetus was somehow stolen, not aborted!) The remaining 30 percent of voters said they love to hate Erica's long-lost demon spawn, who's played by sexy model Colin Egglesfield. read more

Is there room for two queen bees...

Is there room for two queen bees on All My Children? Martha Stewart appears in the March 28 episode as a guest on "New Beginnings," the fictional talk-show-within-a-soap hosted by Erica Kane. Of course, it won't be the first time Stewart and Susan Lucci have done daytime TV together. La Lucci was among the domestic goddess' inaugural guests when Martha debuted last fall. To refresh your memory, here's a lovely photo. read more

Carol Burnett

When Desperate Housewives' Andrew seeks to be emancipated from his mother's watch, look for legendary funny lady Carol Burnett to hit Wisteria Lane as Bree's tightly wound stepmother, Eleanor Mason. "I thought this would be a hoot," Burnett, who is tentatively slated to first air April 9, tells USA Today. "I've watched All My Children for a hundred years, and this, too, is a very campy soap." But once Eleanor's stay is over, will Bree be saying, "I'm so glad we had this time together"? read more


Variety reports that Jenny McCarthy and Ivan Sergei (Charmed) will star in the ABC Family original movie Mary Christmas. McCarthy will play Santa's ambitious businesswoman daughter and, hopefully, wear one of those cute "naughty elf" costumes at some point.... Lifetime Television has tapped All My Children alumna Abigail Spencer — one of the nicest gals you could ever meet and a hottie in her own right — for the lead in Emily's Eyes, a procedural about an FBI agent seeking to right the wrongs of her treasonous CIA-operative parents. Thus far ordered for 13 episodes, Emily's Eyes could premiere as early as this summer. read more

Word is, All My Children is recasting...

Word is, All My Children is recasting Adam and Liza's daughter, Colby, as well as Palmer and Opal's son, Petey. Both characters are currently away from Pine Valley. They'll come home SORASed — that's short for Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome — into randy teenagers, just in time for summer. An AMC rep had "no comment." read more

This week's All My Children explosion...

This week's All My Children explosion will claim at least one casualty: corporate titan Ethan Ramsey Cambias, played by the handsomest man in the northern hemisphere, James Scott. FYI: Although Ethan will breathe his last on Monday, Feb. 24, word is Scott will continue to air on AMC either in ghostly visitations, fantasies or flashbacks. Let's hope another soap snaps up this British looker soon! Doing him in is truly a sin. read more

All of soapdom was buzzing on...

Renee Elise Goldsberry, One Life to Live and Tracey E. Bregman, Young and the Restless

All of soapdom was buzzing on Wednesday when the Daytime Emmy nominations were announced. Here's how your sudsy faves reacted to all the big news....

First-time nominee Renee Goldsberry (Evangeline) had a mixed reaction to being One Life to Live's lone acting anointee. "It's bittersweet because I saw some great work on my show last year," the supporting-actress contender told "I don't want to single anybody out, but I can't help it: Bree [Williamson, Jess/Tess], I thought was absolutely wonderful, [as were] John-Paul [Lavoisier, Rex], Robin Strasser (Dorian)... I also thought that Tari [Signor, Margaret], who was [pre]nominated in [my] category, was really, really great. Michael Easton (John) should get a little shout-out as well, because you're only as good as your partner."

"It was shocking that I was even nominated," said read more

Premise: The soap that introduced Erica Kane and her many husbands to the masses launched on Jan. 5, 1970, and won a number of Best Drama Emmys along the way. Set in Pine Valley, a fictional East Coast burb, `AMC' was created by the prolific Agnes Nixon and has been a soap with a social conscience, tackling issues like addiction, abortion and homosexuality. In fact, it featured daytime's first lesbian kiss, between Erica's daughter Bianca and con woman Lena Kundera, who later stole her heart.
