The new writing at All My Children is evident now more than ever with the heating up of couples we never would have expected.

When Adam (David Canary) and Annie (Melissa Claire Egan) got married, we all knew she’d cheat on him. But we all thought it would be with his nephew, Scott (Adam Mayfield), not with Adam’s own son, JR (Jacob Young).

JR and Annie are, frankly put, hot.

J.R. isn’t as interesting when paired with boring Marissa (Brittany Allen). Not that Allen is a bad actess, but the writers didn’t need to make her Babe 2.0. She isn’t a very interesting character. And we know that they do have feelings for each other.

Then, we have David (Vincent Irizarry) and Greenlee (Rebecca Budig).

AMC is going back to basics in this marriage of convenience turned into a love story.

Hey, it worked for Zach and Kendall, why not for David and Greenlee.

I personally find David and Greenlee (dubbed GreeD by online fans) to be great. They’ve certainly mixed it up having Greenlee marry her former brother-in-law.

And even if the focus of this entry is about new couples, I’d like to give a final shout out to Alicia Minshew (Kendall) and Thorsten Kaye (Zach) on their brief return.

Finally, there’s one last person to mention.

Since the new writing regime, we’ve been seeing a lot more of Jackson (Walt Willey). And he has been sharing screentime with Erica (Susan Lucci), of course.

But with Krystal (Bobbie Eakes) going to work for him, will Erica find competition?

AMC is changing it up in many ways, but will these new (and possibly up and coming) couples, will it enter a new era of greatness?

Veteran fundraisers Barbie Tsagaris and Patti Werynski have once again drawn popular soap stars to Largo for a fan event.

I can attest to the fact that these two sisters throw a fab soap event, because I attended their last one with Walt Willey (Jackson/AMC), Vincent Irizarry (David/AMC) and Forbes March (former Nash/OLTL).

It had to be one of the top soap star events that I have ever attended.

They provided lots of one-and-one time with the stars….and LOTS of fun! They also had great raffle prizes.

If you look at the photo gallery on the right side of this page, you will see some of the photos from their last soap event in Largo, FL.

The two are raising money for MyHopeChest.org, a group that provides funding for reconstructive surgery to women who have survived breast cancer surgery but lack insurance or the financial means for reconstruction.

I am SO disappointed … I want the strong willed Amanda Dillon who blackmailed JR and the Chandlers back on my screen!

I’ve always loved this character’s potential.  Given her lineage (daughter of Trevor Dillon and Janet Green) this character was destined to be front burner. Even when she had no storyline, I rooted for her.  But sadly, Amanda brought the character full circle during yesterday’s episode of All My Children.

It wasn’t long ago that Amanda (Chrishell Stause) lamented constantly how she had no man and no prospects to get one. She finally landed Jake Martin (Ricky Paull Goldin), who supported her even while pregnant by his worst enemy. He eventually put his freedom and medical career on the line, only for Amanda to fall for the oldest trick in the book (running out of gas) and end up having sex with David Hayward (Vincent Irizarry) in the back seat of his car instead of waiting for her next ovulation cycle. 

In my opinion, this particular part of the storyline was distasteful to say the least, and lowered both characters in my eyes: Amanda for disrespecting herself, her marriage and Jake AND for getting conned so easily AGAIN, and David for … well honestly I can’t get but so mad at him this time (which makes me mad in itself LOL). He didn’t pressure or blackmail her into having sex (although any man willing to bed a crying woman who doesn’t even want to be talked to or looked at during the act, seems suspect).

 The only saving grace was viewers didn’t have to witness their tryst onscreen, and not because Vincent Irizarry and Chrishell Stause aren’t hot together, but because this was one train wreck that I know I’d rather not witness. I’ve been cringing at the thought since Friday, hoping Amanda wouldn’t go to the dark side.

But bottom line, if Amanda’s memory is so faulty that she forgot David’s specialty is exploiting the weaknesses of others, then she may as well go on ahead sign over her rights to Trevor now. Save everyone some time, and herself further embarrassment. 

And newsflash Amanda – at this point it doesn’t even matter whether or not you get pregnant. The damage is done, and you can only blame yourself.  And poor Jake! How will he react? I’m sure David will see to it personally that the truth comes out in the worst possible way. 

Where’s Janet and her crowbar when she’s REALLY needed? (I think Annie’s got one she can borrow). And while she’s at it, Janet should knock some sense into her daughter, too.
