Very Interesting Indeed...

An article that appeared on recently has gotten quite a big reaction, from fans and actors alike!  The article talks about what went wrong with Prospect Park's plans to launch AMC and OLTL online.  But I think it's Cady McClain's (Dixie) rebuttal of the article that I find most interesting.  Check out the article HERE, and Cady's response HERE.

It is, and has been my quiet opinion all along that we were had.  That it was far too good to be true.  And that it would never happen because there was no way they could come up with the money to make it happen.  Quiet because so many were so excited and optimistic and I didn't want to step on that with my glass half empty attitude. After reading so much on what went wrong I guess I wasn't too far off.  It's sad.  Sad all around.  For the cast and crew, for Agnes, for us.  I said at the very beginning of all this, "I wish they had let AMC go with dignity," and I still wish that.  Now we will forever have a half assed ending with no resolution.  What a shame.

AMC (and OLTL) Will Not Continue Online

Official word just came in, AMC and OLTL will not continue online.  Read Prospect Park's official statement HERE.

It's not exactly a surprise.  The news has been filtering in all morning and I really just wanted us all to enjoy JR's big win last night and Thanksgiving and not have all the downer news posted, but there it is.  It couldn't be avoided any longer.  I guess there really is nothing more to say.

JR Wins DWTS!!!!

Congratulations to JR Martinez (Brot) and partner Karina Smirnoff for taking home the mirror ball trophy on Dancing with the Stars!!!

Susan Addresses Rumors

Susan Lucci (Erica) took to the airwaves of Facebook and her official website yesterday to try and clear up any misconceptions about her and Prospect Park.  Her official statement is as follows:

I want my fans to know the truth. There has been miscommunications as a result of statements in the press that I am one of the reasons that All My Children is not moving forward. This is simply untrue and not the case. We have been in discussions since Prospect Park first expressed interest in moving the series online, and in correspondence dated September 8th, I made it clear that I would be ecstatic to be a part of All My Children in a prominent way if they committed to producing the series for another year. I have not heard back from Prospect Park since then, in fact, I learned of their decision not to proceed with All My Children at the same time you did, through the media.

It's been a privilege and honor to be involved with the All My Children family for so many years, from working closely with Agnes Nixon to getting to know millions of devoted and wonderful fans.

I also recently read a statement by Vincent Irizzary (David) where he also had to deny he was the cause!  Seriously, one person or persons is not to blame for the show not going on.  There are many factors involved so putting the blame on an actor is beyond silly IMO.

Happy Birthday Alexa Havins!!

Happy Birthday wishes to Alexa Havins!!   AMC's Babe (former, and I guess we can call her the current Babe after her finale return) celebrates her 31st birthday today.   Did you catch Alexa on the Starz original series Torchwood:  Miracle Day?  She rocked (as did the series!)

AMC Relaunch Put on Hold

Soaps In Depth is reporting that Prospect Park's plans to relaunch AMC in January have been put on hold.   Not good, but not surprising considering the snails pace things have been going to secure actors/actresses for the online version of the show.  With OLTL further along, The Online Network has decided it only needs one soap for it's line up.   Will AMC ever be back?  At this point, it's not looking good!

Oh, This Doesn't Sound Good

A new article posted by Studio Briefing states that bringing the soaps (AMC and OLTL) online has hit a snag.   Well shoot, fans already knew that.  Filming would have to start very soon if they were going to start airing on the internet in January and very few actors (on AMC anyway) have been nailed down.  Let alone all the other problems that seem to be cropping up.   Many of us have speculated, just how are they going to get the money for all this?  That's pretty much what the article is saying too.  The saga is turning into it's own soap within a soap... As the Internet Turns.
