It’s funny. I was watching SOAPnet or ABC, whichever, and I saw a commercial for Rebecca Budig‘s return to All My Children. (In case you hadn’t heard, the “real” Greenlee is back. The promotional campaign has been rather lax, with only about 10 ads every hour, plus tickers and teasers and so on scrolling across the screen … so you might not have been aware. Don’t worry. If you missed it or just plain forgot, I’m sure ABC has tattoos and skywriting available.)
Anyhow, guess what else I saw? A promotion for Angie and Jesse.
No, really. They’re coming back, too.

You might not have realized it considering all the hoopla surrounding Greenlee’s second coming, but one of AMC‘s premier couples is reuniting in Pine Valley.
This is huge news. Not only were Angie and Jesse extremely popular, but they were historic as arguably the first black supercouple on daytime TV. And … Jesse’s supposed to be dead.
It doesn’t get much huger than that.
But you know what? I’m ashamed to say that I’d almost forgotten about Angie and Jesse’s return. In fact, I’m not even sure when they’re supposed to be on screen again.
Oh, wait. I think their one promo says Friday.
On the flip side, I’ve known for a month now that today is Rebecca’s first day back. ABC made sure of it.
How sad is that?
Not only did AMC insult Sabine Singh by ramming Rebecca’s return down our throats, but the powers that be also insulted Debbi Morgan (Angie) and Darnell Williams (Jesse).
Instead of the Greenlee overkill, ABC should have invested more time, money and publicity in Jesse and Angie. They are the ones who should really be in the spotlight.
Maybe now that the Rebecca countdown is over, Debbi and Darnell can finally get the recognition they deserve.

  1. I AM SO HAPPY JESSE & ANGIE ARE BACK! I just REALLY HOPE these writers give them material that’s worthy of them (we know they can handle it) & don’t just bring them back for ratings & them relegate them to the back burner a la Maria’s return a few years back.
    ITA that their return has been sidelined due to the RB return. The only thing I can think is ABC didn’t predict viewers would care as much about Sabine Singh as they do. That blew up their little “real Greenlee returns” campaign & actually put a damper on RB’s return. Especially since after all that hype, her first day back wasn’t all that great.
    Back to Jesse & Angie – I can’t wait to see what they do with these characters. Too bad they can’t get the “real Liza” (pun intended) back, there is SO MUCH history between Liza, Tad, Jesse & Angie that could be played up. Maybe Jesse can even convince Tad to kick Krystal to the curb lol (wishful thinking!)
    It’s been a LONG TIME since I got this excited about the return of old characters. I just hope these writers do them justice.

  2. OMG I LOVE JESSEE AND ANGIE!!! I never clicked on this soapbox before and didn’t know they were coming back!! When are they both on tomorrow?? OMG!
    I only heard the “real greenlee” was coming back. Oh this is good, mabye all my children can get back to basics and be the soap opera I used to love and cut school to watch!

  3. I AM SO HAPPY THAT ANGIE AND JESSE ARE BACK ON ALL MY CHILDREN. THIS IS THE ONE EVENT THAT I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR. WHEN ANGIE AND JESSE LEFT ALL MY CHILDREN SO DID I. NOW THAT THEY ARE BACK, I WILL CONTINUE TO WATCH FOR HOWEVER LONG THEY WILL BE ON. THIS IS THE BEST COUPLE EVER ON DAYTIME SOAPS. THE LOVE THAT THEY SHARED NO ONE COULD EVER TOUCH. THE CHARACTERS OF ANGIE AND JESSE ARE SO REAL THAT IT IS IF YOU KNOW THEM PERSONALLY. ALL MY CHILDREN DID THE RIGHT THING BY NEVER REPLACING THESE CHARACTERS….ANGIE AND JESSE ARE FOREVER IRREPLACEABLE!!!!!!!
