And if Erica Kane wasn't in the loop, you know no one else in the cast was!
Right now, soap fans across the country are in mourning after it was announced that All My Children and One Life To Live are officially going off the air after decades of programming. Fans were shocked, but it turns out, they weren't the only ones. Susan Lucci apparently was completely blindsided by the announcement, as evident by the fact that three days prior, she was raving about the show's success!
When Susan was approached by paparazzi on Monday and asked about the then rumor that the show was going to be cancelled, Susan insisted that there was "no truth to it" and that she was gearing up for another storyline soon. Does that sound like someone who is in the know???
Further confirming Susan's lack of knowledge is her daughter, Liza Huber, who insisted her soap star mother learned about the show's fate on Thursday at the same time producers informed the rest of the cast and the rest of the world found out. While Lisa said her mother was "upset" by the news, she added that Susan has no desire to retire and is looking for new projects as speak.
Good for her! She's a talented and tough lady and she's still got a lot of good years left in this business! How exciting it will be to see what she does next?
Hey, a stint on Hot In Cleveland would be good! Give Betty White a call and set that up!
