Michael just turned 13 at the beginning of June.

But Mark says...
"I feel like he's been a teenager for the past year already. For one thing, he's thrilled about getting away for his second summer of sleep-away camp – and this time, his parents are feeling better about the separation, too."
In fact, they're quickly coming around to the idea of sending the younger kids – Lola, 9, and Joaquin, 7 – off to camp themselves.

The Verge: Colin Egglesfield


The gossip headlines may ask, “Is Colin Egglesfield (AMC's Ex- Josh) dating Kate Hudson?” but rest assured, it’s only for the movies. The 37-year-old Egglesfield has spent spring canoodling with Hudson and Ginnifer Goodwin as the male lead in the in-production romcom Something Borrowed, a high-profile boost after the actor was bounced from the struggling revamp of Melrose Place. Egglesfield takes it all in stride, however; it’s just another curveball in a career that’s been full of them, zig-zagging from his pre-med background to high-fashion modeling to daytime soaps.

How did it happen? He told Movieline.com. Read the full interview HERE.

Soapnet's Hot Summer Tips

Some summer tips delivered by stars of AMC, OLTL, and GH.

Army vet J.R. Martinez has gone from land-mine victim to 'All My Children' star.

The police station set of "All My Children" buzzed as the cast and crew prepared for a scene. Sitting behind a desk in his officer's uniform all ready to go was J.R. Martinez (AMC's Brot Monroe), smiling as makeup and hair artists attended to actress Shannon Kane, who plays his partner on the ABC soap. "One day I'll have to get a wig so I know what's it's like to be waited on," he said. "I never have to show up early like everyone else for hair and makeup. I'm camera-ready as soon as I arrive."

Martinez stands out in the glamorous cast of "All My Children," one of daytime's most enduring serials. His face, like much of his body, is badly burned and bears the marks of repeated skin grafts. His left eye slightly droops. His left ear is gone. His shaved head is heavily scarred. A distinctive line separates the smooth bridge of his nose from the burned tip.

Although he doesn't share the perfect hair and silky features of his co-stars, it is clear that somehow, Martinez, an Iraqi war veteran injured in 2003, fits in.

Mischa Barton scrubs up nicely for photoshoot.


She favours a grungy look these days, but Mischa Barton (AMC's Ex- Lily) scrubbed up rather nicely for a new fashion shoot. The actress was sleek and stylish as she posed alongside a zebra in a kooky photoshoot for designer Phillip Plein.

But the star appeared to have every tiny imperfection glossed over by the ubiquitous Hollywood airbrush. The top of her thighs looked like they had been slimmed down with the help of some computer trickery and her waist also appeared incredibly slim.

Palmer's will is read, David takes the fall for Greenlee, and two people lose their house.

Lisa's Weekly "All My Children" Rant..

Hi PVN, it's Lisa Rodrigo here again!! First of all, I want to thank you all for your your kind words and positive feedback on my first rant!! I was overwhelmingly happy that you enjoyed it. You all made my day!!!Hope I can continue to live up to the first one!!!!

Agnes Nixon will get a well-deserved lifetime achievement award tomorrow night at the Daytime Emmys!! Congrats to her!! And Congrats to our show for getting nominated Best Show!! GOOO AMC!!

Erica is out of the hospital to help save Fusion. She is WONDER WOMAN!! Jack and Erica got engaged; but how long will there happiness last? I am sorry for those who like them together; but she only said yes because she thought she was not going to see Caleb again. Caleb will resurface and mark my words; she will fall for him and break Jack's heart. We all do not want Jack's heart to be broken; but it will. Jack deserves someone who appreciates him. Maybe they should bring in someone new? Or, they can pair him up with an existing character...But, Who??? I will have to get back to you on that one!

Madison and Ryan kissed!!! YAYYYY!!! I love them together!!! Hope he does not hurt her and go back to Greenlee! However, I have a feeling Madison can handle herself though and maybe win Ryan's heart. **Fingers Crossed**

J.R. saw Trent's widow after she delivered a baby; and once again began to think how life is too short. He was telling Annie how grateful he was that she saved his life and how important his family was to him. He also told her that it was important to spend time with them and work it out with Marissa. Then boom....They kissed?? Just as I thought! You are all about Annie!! I think Marissa and Scott should get together...or maybe they can bring back T.C. Warner's Kelsey with him..HMMM?? ;)

Poor Angie.... she has some eye disease... Those scenes were well acted by the beautifully talented Debbi Morgan! It looked like she was going to tell Jesse about it; but has not yet. Jake suspects something is terribly wrong. I think either he will figure it out or she will confide in him. I just hope The Hubbard's can get through this!! I love that family!

Did you all order your AMC pics from Soapnet? I did!! I ordered one of Dr. Joe and Grandma Kate, 2 of Angie and Jesse, and one of Mary Fickett(ex-Ruth) holding the AMC book. Classic pics!! Can not wait until they come! Hope to meet Debbi Morgan again and Darnell Williams so that they can autograph it. I met Debbi Morgan in the 90's at a function in NY and she was nothing but sweet!! I have her autograph and treasure it!!

Dr. Evil is at it again!! He drugged Bianca so that she does not ruin Greenlee's launch. I feel sorry for him in a way; because he is going to lose Greenlee if he does not stop!! I love them together and I think that if they are completely honest with each other; they will stand a chance. She gave him unconditional love and honesty and although he has shown her love; has nothing but lied to her. If he keeps it up; he will drive her right into Ryan's arms!

I am dying to know the provisions of Palmer's will!! What do you all think that is about??? I think Caleb has a lot to do with that and will be interesting to see how that all plays out!!!

I can not believe Adam and Brooke are gone! Miss them so much and hope they do not take too long to bring them back for a visit! I also miss Kendall and hope she makes an appearance soon! I think that they are alluding to that!!

Thanks for letting me rant! They are only my opinions; everyone has them! Until next time!! Have a great weekend!! Love to all!! See you in Pine Valley!!

Real Life or Reel Life...

I was doing some searching for AMC Stars and check out what i came across...
"Monroe police arrested a woman Thursday afternoon suspected of stabbing her boyfriend. Brittany Allen, 23, of 313 Selman Drive, Monroe, was booked into Ouachita Correctional Center on aggravated battery. In an arrest affidavit, police were called about a stabbing complaint. During an investigation, police learned the suspect had stabbed her boyfriend. Allen told police she stabbed him after an argument. She said she has been battered by the suspect in the past, which police confirmed. No bond was set Thursday night"
I highly doubt this is the Brittany Allen (Marissa Chandler) on AMC, But had to post this under "Real Life or Reel Life" :)

Cameron Mathison: Confident About ‘AMC’

Cameron Mathison, who plays Ryan Lavery on ‘All My Children,’ makes the show, and is ABC daytime’s most active cheerleader. The frequent ‘Good Morning America’ contributor and former ‘Dancing With The Stars‘ contestant still seems grateful to have a job even though he is one of daytime’s most popular stars. You have to respect that. So it comes as no surprise that he is thrilled about this year’s Daytime Emmys move to Las Vegas. He revealed which award he will be presenting, details about the Lifetime Achievement Award that AMC’s creator Agnes Nixon will receive and why, after what can charitably be described as a tumultuous year for AMC, he is confident the show will go home with the big prize.

"Transformers 3" to blow up traffic in Chicago.

The “Transformers 3” news conference held Wednesday (June 23rd) at the Office of Emergency Management and Communications wasn't meant to stir up interest in the film, which will shoot in Chicago from July 10-Aug. 19, but to prepare the general public.

For what? Jets flying by Willis Tower? Cars plummeting into the Chicago River? Shia LaBeouf's awkward return to the Walgreens on North Michigan Avenue?

Nope. Traffic.

OEMC Executive Director Jose Santiago said the closures on LaSalle Street (8 p.m. July 9 to 5 a.m. July 12), the Michigan Avenue bridge (8 p.m. July 16 to 5 a.m. July 19) and Upper Wacker Drive (9 p.m. July 18 to 5 a.m. July 22) will have the most impact on traffic. He added that most of the movie's filming in Chicago will take place during daylight.

Daytime Emmys honor Agnes Nixon.

While her primary goal has been to entertain, Agnes Nixon has long affected viewers' hearts and minds by incorporating social issues such as drug addiction, abortion, homosexuality and alcoholism into her serials. Nixon, the writer, producer and creator of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" -- as well as "Loving," the first soap to talk about AIDS -- will be given the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 37th annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards, and it's no mystery why.

Susan Lucci says,
"Agnes has set the bar when it comes to telling stories that are socially aware as well as entertaining, a Daytime Emmy winner for "All My Children." She has a mandate first to entertain and then inform."
Harry Eckhardt, Nixon's father, wanted his daughter to go into the family burial garment business. Hoping to distance Nixon from her interest in writing through intimidation, he set up a meeting between her and Irna Phillips, the Chicago-based creator/head writer of daytime serials, known for her high standards and commanding presence.

Consuelos & Ripa's New Gig!

TLC has announced the pick-up of "Homemade Millionaire" from Milojo Productions, the company helmed by Mark Consuelos (AMC's Ex-Mateo) and Kelly Ripa (AMC's Ex-Hayley). This new series will help aspiring businesswomen make their dreams become a reality. “It is going to be like a mompreneur show,” reveals Consuelos. “It’s not limited to moms, but it’s focused on women who have ideas at home and never really know what to do with them. Kelly gets stuff sent to her office all the time; some great ideas!”

Instead of just sending her suggestions for marketing and distributing the products to these aspiring inventors, Ripa will be followed by cameras as she goes the distance to help make the women’s dreams come true! The TLC series will work in tandem with the Home Shopping Network, which will be the potential outlet for the prospective merchandise that Ripa is helping to sell. Look for "Homemade Millionaire" to premiere in late summer. With so much work already on her plate, why would Ripa who currently hosts ABC’s LIVE! with Regis and Kelly take on yet another show? “We like to stay busy!” her hubby laughs. “And we also have to start a business: Who knows, one of our kids may need a job.”

Sarah Michelle Gellar shows off daughter Charlotte.

The public hasn't seen too much of Sarah Michelle Gellar's (AMC's Ex- Kendall) nine-month old daughter Charlotte. However, the former "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" star did show off her daughter while out grabbing lunch in Los Angeles on Tuesday (June 22nd).

Gellar and husband Freddie Prinze Jr. became first-time parents in Sept. 2009.
"They've been waiting for this for a long time," a pal told Us Weekly shortly after Gellar gave birth. "They are such a loving, solid couple."

As Go the Soaps, So Go the Daytime Emmys

It wasn't so long ago that the Daytime Emmy Awards took place at Radio City Music Hall in New York City and were telecast during May sweeps periods. How can it be that this once-important sweeps event now finds itself banished to the Las Vegas Hilton in June, well away from the excitement of the "official" broadcast season, isolated in a city that has absolutely nothing to do with soap operas?

Ed Martin of TV Board realize that this year's Daytime Emmys event (to be telecast Sunday on CBS at 9 p.m. ET) promises to be a significant improvement over last year's uniquely depressing and predictably low-rated affair, which was produced on the cheap at the Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles at the tail end of August and telecast on The CW -- a network that doesn't even participate in the damn daypart. Talk about demoralizing!

Mr. Martin having attended the Daytime Emmys a number of times during their all-too-brief prime-time golden age, he can't help but feel a growing sense of sadness about where they stand today. Indeed, the way the Daytime Emmys have been treated by CBS and ABC since 2006 -- when ABC yanked them away from their classy digs in New York and produced them instead in Los Angeles at the garish Kodak Theater and its adjacent outdoor shopping mall -- it's a wonder they have survived at all. And let's not forget the role NBC played in all this, peevishly deciding after 2004 to drop out of the Daytime Emmy telecast rotation because its shows were receiving so few nominations. (Whose fault was that?)
