The highlight of Susan Lucci’s week long stint as guest host on the Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family program was today’s All My Children reunion!
The Emmy winner, who played the irrepressible Erica Kane, and Home & Family hosts Mark Steines and Debbie Matenopoulos welcomed to the show Eva LaRue (ex-Maria), John Callahan (ex-Edmund), Peter Bergman (ex-Cliff; Jack, The Young and the Restless), Cameron Mathison (ex-Ryan), Kathleen Noone (ex-Ellen), Kim Delaney (ex-Jenny), Larry Lau (ex-Greg), Taylor Miller (ex-Nina), Eden Riegel (ex-Bianca), Jill Larson (ex-Opal), and Michael E. Knight (ex-Tad).
Of course, there’s potential now for “ex” to be dropped as the prefix for all of these characters now that ABC has regained the rights to use the players from both AMC and One Life to Live. Many of the attendees had already heard the news that Hillary B. Smith is at General Hospital, ABC’s surviving soap, this week taping scenes as Nora Buchanan, her OLTL character.
SoapHub was invited to the Home & Family taping and caught up with the former Pine Valley residents after the show, asking them, among other questions, if they’d be up for a visit to Port Charles, too!
“Yeah, I’d make a ‘house call’ over there,” says LaRue. (Hmm…Maria is a doctor, after all.) “I’ve never been on GH, but I’ve watched it since I was a little kid. I still tune in.”
Larson says she’d also welcome reprising Tad’s mom Opal. “I’d be up for that,” she says, noting that she’s known GH’s executive producer Frank Valentini since they worked together at OLTL. “Or maybe I could pop in as Ursula?”
