Katy Perry comparing herself to Erica Kane!
The media always builds up stories in order to pique the readers' interest. It's an unfortunate part of being a celebrity. Katy Perry pokes fun of what the media is writing about her lately in a tweet.

Eden Riegel teases what's to come.
Access Hollywood spoke with Eden Riegel (Bianca, "AMC") about picking up a few years later, the fallout, and Erica Cane. "Access" asked, "The last time people saw ‘All My Children,’ J.R. Chandler had a gun, and he was hiding behind the walls as most of the residents of Pine Valley were gathered together. What can you tell us about where the show picks up?" Eden Riegel teased, "That final cliffhanger has definitely affected — it’s ricocheted and affected people’s lives and Miranda and A.J. who were just little kids at that point are now teenagers and dealing with the fallout themselves." As for Erica's absence, "Access" asked if they explained it away. Riegel says, "No. I think in a good way... there isn’t a lot of time on like, ‘Oh, where’s so and so? You remember she’s out of town doing this...’ They don’t spend a lot of time on the exposition of that stuff so what you end up getting is the feeling that those people still are present. They’re just not featured."

Casting call Alert!
"AMC" has a casting call out for Andres. Find out a little about Andres' past and where he'll be hanging out in Pine Valley in our All My Children comings and goings.

Tear-jerker promo!
The Online Network released a promo video for "AMC" which provides a walk down memory lane and gives a bit of a tease of what's to come on April 29. A word of caution: Tissues are recommended during viewing.
