No shame in loving soaps!
All My Children is bringing back three fan favorites as the
ship keeps sinking show tries to woo back viewers.
Debbie Morgan and Darnell Williams will be back. Morgan will be playing Angie Baxter-Hubbard. Williams will, supposedly, be playing Jesse Hubbard, Angie's first husband. This will be interesting since Jesse not only has been dead for nearly twenty years but he's been back as an angel guiding Tad Martin through hard times and bringing Gillian Andrassy to heaven. Angie married a Jesse look-a-like named Jake (and who was played by Darnell Williams) when her character was moved to Loving/The City. ABC is promoting that Angie and Jesse are back so I guess Jesse was only mostly dead in Pine Valley.
The big news this week was that Sabine Singh has been let go after six months of
butchering playing Greenlee and Rebecca Budig, the original Greenlee, is returning. I think Sabine Singh has been awful from day one as Greenlee and I'm not sorry to see her leave but does ABC Daytime have to put up a graphic on their website that reads "The Real Greenlee Is Back on AMC"? So what, the last six months we were watching the faux Greenlee? Can I get my money back for being so cruelly deceived? And could that be meaner to poor Sabine Singh, who stunk but was obviously trying her best. Mallory at Serial Drama is as mortified as I am and she's probably the only person more down on the show than I am (and a rant on that is coming. After making a small rally this summer, AMC is just awful now).
Morgan, Williams and Budig all return January 16th. The good parts of the show, however, have been gone for a very long time.
