Deadline.com reports today that Susan Lucci (Erica) has turned down the offer by Prospect Park to continue with AMC. Reading this item made me angry, very angry. I wasn't even going to post it. All I could think of what that someone has it out for Susan (um hello Mr. Frons). Here is a woman who has taken pay cuts, who has stood by the show through thick and thin when she really didn't have to, who uprooted her life in NYC where she has lived her whole life, and who towed the line, was fed lies and went out on her book tour repeating those lies (that the show was safe). And now? Now I'm supposed to believe that, as Deadline reports, "she tried to gouge the producers for more money while also asking to work fewer hours and get a commitment for a primetime series." Sell that load of bull somewhere else. I'm not buying it. She may have turned down the offer, I'm not saying that isn't true, but all this other stuff? No. I don't believe it for one minute. Could this be retaliation for Susan daring to tell the truth about Mr. Frons in her book? And if Prospect Park doesn't do something to secure Susan, can AMC even continue?
