Picture This: The Crystal Ball 2000

10 years ago, an estranged Hayley Vaughan (Kelly Ripa) and Mateo Santos (Mark Consuelos) spotted each other across the dance floor at the Crystal Ball. In that moment, they forgot all the obstacles that had kept them apart over the last year. This memorable moment capped off the 30th Anniversary Celebration for the show.

This year, Ripa and Consuelos return to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of All My Children. Let's hope for an equally memorable moment from this Pine Valley Super Couple.

When a Rose is Not a Rose

Opal's sense of style has always been, well, questionable. One of my favourite looks was Opal's cornucopia hat from Thanksgiving 2001:

Pictured (L to R): Cady McClain (ex-Dixie), Jill Larson (Opal), Eden Riegel (ex-Bianca) and Julia Barr (ex-Brooke)

In honour of Jill Larson's 20th Anniversary as Opal Sue Gardner Purdy Cortlandt, share your favourite Opal memory below.

Trivia: This episode also marked the premier of Jonathan Bennett as an all grown-up JR Chandler, who would "loose his virginity" to con-man Frankie Stone (played by Bennett's then real life girlfriend Elizabeth Hendrickson)

Picture This: Joey & Tad (1988)

Look what a difference twenty years can make!

Tad (Michael E. Knight, r.) certainly has not changed much, but check out little Joey, played by Michael Scalera for six years, longer than any other actor in the role.

Joey grew up in front of viewer's eyes, when all of a sudden at Thanksgiving 1988, the little boy grew up into a googly eyed teen played by Michael Brainard.

What is your favourite Joey/Tad moment?

I can tell you one thing, the Mikey Barlowe story definitely does not top my list.

The View, Part V!!

No one crosses Canary!!! LOL

For details on seeing all 5 installments and the whole View dedicated to AMC, click here.

There is Something About Mary

Anna Stuart (ex-Mary Smythe) will be featured on Martha Byrne's new web-series Gotham. No news on what role she will be playing.

For more on Gotham, check out their Facebook.

The Wind Beneath My Winds

Charles Pratt's destruction of Aidan Devane (Aiden Turner) is probably the best (or worst) example of character assassination in Pine Valley History. The one-time town hero has been turned into a deranged kidnapper weeks shy of Turner's departure from the program.

Let's look back at the Aidan we all remember, and love:

Maureen Gorman: Despite the the fact that this was probably the worst pairing of the decade, Aidan showed his true good-guy side by standing by Maria Grey (Eva LaRue, l.) as she struggled with amnesia. Aidan met Maria after she was mugged in the park. Maria and Aidan ran away together when he was framed for the murder of Fiona Sinclair. It seemed like nothing would break up this new couple, except of course for Maria's memory.

Heroes, Inc: Aidan teamed up with Private Investigator Tad Martin (Michael E. Knight, l.) when Edmund Grey received a mysterious phone call about an imminent murder in Pine Valley. The culprit turned out to be none other than casino owner Zach Slater, who had planned a real-life murder mystery game to avenge the death of his brother, rapist Michael Cambias.

Lily in Wonderland: When autistic teen Lily Montgomery (Leven Rambin, l.) fell into a world of mathematics after witnessing Edmund's death, Aidan was the only person who could pull her out of her fixation. Patient and kind, Aidan refused to give up on Lily not because of his determination to avenge his friend's death; but rather, so that Lily could have a second chance of leading an independent life.

Purple Heart: Darfur experienced a genocide so terrible it can be compared to Hitler's reign over Europe in World War II. Nonetheless, Aidan volunteered to save Dr. Jake Martin (Ricky Paull Goldin, l.), who was being held captive while volunteering with Doctors Without Borders. Despite the fact that he was set to marry Greenlee duPres, Aidan put his life on hold to save a man he barely knew.

What are your favorite memories of Aidan? Feel free to share in the comments section.

Just as she celebrates her 20th year on AMC, Jill Larson (Opal) hopefully will be celebrating many many more. She's been placed back on contract status and will be making the move to LA with the show! What's your favorite Opal moment? Off hand I have to say I loved when she and young Petey (then played by Mitchel Federan) came to the Venetian Ball dressed as aliens because she thought it was a Venusian Ball!

Top 40 AMC Moments!

As we get closer to AMC's 40th Anniversary, is counting down their picks for the Top 40 greatest AMC moments. Check it out by clicking here.

CASTING NEWS: Fr. Clarence Pays Zach and Kendall a Visit

Well it wouldn't be the Christmas season on AMC without a visit from Fr. Clarence, the mystical, sometimes good, often times angel of death AMC has come to rely on as the voice of holiday reason. This year he will interact with Zach and Kendall. Look for Malachy McCourt to reprise his role and appear to Zach next week.

Flashback: Soap Opera Digest 1996

Long before Bailey and Damon came to Pine Valley, there was Kelsey Jefferson (TC Warner) and Bobby Warner (Brian Gaskill), two teenagers who became parents way too young. Just like baby Stuart Colby, Kelsey and Bobby put Sam up for adoption hoping that he would have the life that neither parent could provide (though Bobby had a trust fund and was heir to the Cortlandt Electronics fortune, and Kelsey came from a long line of doctors including her grandfather and father).

The December 6, 2009 issue of Soap Opera Digest had a flashback photo of the "engaged and underage," lovers. Warner took the opportunity to tell the PVB some of her memories from that storyline:
"Little Sammy was two twin girls (Meghan and Alison Tuma), and very happy little girls to say the least! It was very hard to capture a sad moment from the girls faces during the many phases of being passed from the Greys to me, and back to the Greys. Even when Kelsey would be listening to the walk-man and ignoring the child, they still were happy girls!

One time, when they were being passed back and forth at the airport scene when Kelsey fina
lly resided in giving Sammy back to the Greys and Bobby took Sam away - they cried! Each time they were in Brian's arms, they started to get cranky (they were tired that day... normally they were happy in Brian's arms).

If you remember in that scene, I wasn't holding the child. In the script, Kelsey was supposed to be holding the child. The girls cried each time in Brian's arms; we had to do our dialogue between cries.... That was tough! The Directors and Producers used the moment and went with it!
That scene helped win Warner a Soap Opera Digest Award, and garnered Eva LaRue (soon to be Maria Grey again) an Emmy Nomination for Best Supporting Actress for arguably the performance of her career so far.

For more on TC Warner and what she is up to now, join her Fan Club.

As for Kelsey, now that Scott Chandler (l. Daniel Cosgrove) is back in the Valley, wouldn't it be fun to see her come back and "claim" her "true love?"

Just saying.

No Head Writer Named Yet

Although it's been a little less than a month since the axing of Chuck Pratt as Headwriter at AMC, there has not yet been an announcement as to who will be replacing him. Rumors ran rampant soon after the ouster, stating that former AMC scribe, Lorraine Broderick (Head Writer '95-'97, Associate Head Writer '81-'87, '88-'91, Co-Head Writer '87-'88, Script Writer '79-'81), has been once again tapped to take the position. But AMC has since denied this is the case, although has confirmed that she is once again part of the AMC family, as an associate writer. Stay tuned for more info as it comes in!

I’m going to have to have my husband and my mom keeping an eye on that baby 24/7. I’m going to have to draw a little circle on her foot or something.” To read more, click here.

Commentary: The Destruction of Amanda Dillon

This commentary may contain spoilers for shows airing this week.

Even though Thanksgiving came early this year with the ouster of Master of Destruction, Mr. Pratt, we still have a few weeks left of his dreck that has to air. And in that dreck is the destruction of Amanda Dillon.

My head is seriously spinning at all the nonsense that has come out of the storyline between Amanda, Jake and David and in the end we are left with Amanda, the stupidest woman on earth, David the most evil man who ever lived, and Jake the biggest pushover ever. Even though Amanda's ultrasound gave a rough estimate of the conception of Trevor, it was Frankie who administered it and last time I checked, he was not a) an ultrasound technician or 2) an OB-GYN. Assuming that Amanda had an OB at the time she was pregnant with Trevor, wouldn't she have had other ultrasounds? Other tests? Wouldn't that doctor have changed due dates, conception dates, etc during the course of that pregnancy? And wouldn't you think that someone like Amanda who had 3, count em THREE likely candidates for baby daddy get a freakin DNA test!?

Shoot, I'm already worked up. OK.... count to 10, deep breath. Find your happy place.

In the worst idea that has ever been broached on a soap.... well, worst is a little strong but it's up there, David decides that he wants a sibling for Trevor and basically blackmails Amanda into being the oven for his new bun. Sick. Disturbing. Twisted. But even more sick, more disturbing and more twisted is the fact that she and Jake agree to it! WHAT!? Are you all sniffing glue? Contracts are drawn up, legalities are discussed and there it is. In order to have a life with her husband, Amanda must first get knocked up and have another baby with David. Hey I can't make this shit up. It's really what is happening.

Conception day is upon us ladies and gentlemen. And it's all supposed to be clinical with Amanda getting artificially inseminated. This artificial insemination is taking place at some out of the way clinic in another city, in the dead of night. Of course, they run out of gas on the way and Amanda starts to panic that if they don't make it to the appointment, she will have to wait another month before she can be inseminated, thus stretching out her incarceration at David's house even longer. So David steers the conversation towards sex in the car and Amanda decides that this is the what she needs to do to make sure she gets good and knocked up. So they do the deed and Amanda feels like a cheap whore. Hey if the Manolo fits.

Amanda can't get over her guilt. She acts like a rape victim whenever she's around Jake. He's getting suspicious. She acts like she's about to become unglued at any second. She keeps running to the bathroom to hurl because she can't stand that she betrayed Jake. I want to feel sorry for Amanda. As much as I love her, and adore Chrishell Stause, I want to feel sorry for her, but I can't. I just can't feel sorry for her. She made her bed, er... back seat, and now she has to live with it.

It doesn't take her long to spill the beans to Jake. It's like a pounding in her head every day, "back seat sex with David" "back seat sex with David" "back seat sex with David" playing over and over. She can't function without awful flashbacks of mounting David in the back of his car and riding him to conception town. And then, after she tells Jake what they did, Jake can no longer function without the same picture in his head. I want to say poor Jake. But quite frankly, he agreed to this idiocy. No, he didn't agree to Amanda boinking David high school style, but he did agree to her having his baby. But whatever sympathy I can muster in this dreck does go to Jake. Plus he got in a well deserved shot at David.

And then we find out that David has a problem with his swimmers. Seems they are too lazy to move towards conception. His doctor believes his motility problem is so severe that not only will he have a hard time getting Amanda pregnant, but it's unlikely he has gotten her pregnant before. Well, this is a new problem for David because he knocked Krystal up way back when, with twins no less. And then he knocked up Krystal again a little over a year ago. But now that this problem is
known, it calls into question the paternity of Trevor. At long last, a DNA test is done! Secretly of course. Far be it from David to let on that there might be a problem.

The DNA test reveals David's greatest fear, not only is Trevor not his, but he's Jake's! Oh happy day. Oh wait, David's not going to tell anyone. In fact, instead of telling Jake and Amanda, who's lives are already in ruins, partly their own doing and partly David's, he instead decides to tell Amanda that he's dying of pancreatic cancer and only has a few months to live.

This crapola can't end fast enough! Please deliver us from this and put us out of our misery. Make it all a bad dream, nay nightmare. Wake us up from these dismal happenings in Pine Valley. Someone save us! Someone save these 3 characters.... 3 of my absolute faves mind you, from the abomination of this storyline!

AMC Alums in Movies!!!

Yesterday I went to see New Moon and before the movie it was like old home week from AMC! Every trailer they showed had a former AMCer in a prominent role. Starting with, When in Rome. Josh Duhamel (ex-Leo) stars in this movie and although she's not in the trailer, Alexa Havins (ex-Babe) also appears in the movie. It will be released January 29, 2010.

Next up is Letters to Juliet, starring Amanda Seyfried (ex-Joni). She has come a long way from shy Joni Stafford! This movie looks really sweet. It's being released May 7, 2010.

And to finish up our tour of former AMCers on the big screen, Alexandra Daddario (ex-Laurie Lewis) stars in Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief, being released February 12, 2010. On AMC, Laurie and Joni were best friends, vying for the affections of JR and Jamie. But look at her now!!!
