    All My Children: Fans speak out. "We're Sick and tired!"

    Wednesday, November 22 2006

    Lucy Merriam plays Emma McDermot (
    All My Children's writers have some 'splaining to do!! For those who have been watching, one of All My Children's storylines has been revolving around a DNA issue - 'Chimera'! Many readers are writing to us, asking us what this is all about, and the others are just plain frustrated that Emma was taken from Dixie.

    A little genetics lesson for those who don't already know: A Chimera occurs when two ova are fertilized by two sperm, followed by the fusion of the zygotes and the development of an organism wit the intermingled cell lines. What is formed is called a tetragametic chimera, formed from the merger of two fraternal twins in an early zygote phase. This, my fellow soap friends, is what Annie is - a Chimera!

    "Emma" (
    Now, let's hear from all you readers:

    Janel D: Come on EMMA is not Ryan's baby give her to Dixie this is outrageous how you people just keep passing this kid like she is a piece of meat, Give her to Tad and Dixie!! Who is the writer of this show? I'm getting sick and tired of watching this and every day she has a different mother or father. We are getting sick and tired of watching all my children.

    Marcella L: Now, the girl is Ryan's daughter? Come on! Who the hell wrote this? Only in All My Children would this happen! In real life the real mother matches the child's DNA. Give her to Dixie!!

    Molly B: Come on who thought of this, and the phony DNA it goes to show how this is only on the soaps and this is not true, the DNA is all messed up, and I'm sick of it! Give her to Dixie! How can it be Ryan's child, now? Come on! What is going on here?

    Brittany S: No Way! what is going on, sick of this soap, every time it is someone else's child, this don't happen in real life, once the DNA comes back and this is not the real mother give her to tad and Dixie. I am so sick of this idea about how a child gets pushed between two. Please give her to Dixie!! My fellow co-workers and I take our lunch break to watch this, and we're going to give up watching AMC if this keeps up!

    Carol M: No Way! Give her to Dixie! Man, this is one soap that is going down the drain. Who thinks of these things? Why is this child going from one to the other, when the DNA doesn't match! All of a sudden the child is Ryan's? This is sickening to watch this child being pushed from one parent to the next. Give her to Dixie, already and don't screw up the DNA!
    Sally O: Now it is Ryan's baby? I am sick of watching this every day. The DNA is different, the results were fixed, and the computer �etc.

    What are your thoughts?!

    I think that it should be tad &dixie's baby.I think they have been through enough already.It's about on my last nerve. The writer is doing crazy stuff.You need to change to someone else for a change.It's always the same old peoplewith the same old things just a differant day.It's time to change or people are going to stop watching the show.

    Emma looks like Dixie and of course not Ryan!Why in the hellwould it be Ryan's who thinks this is true. Don't think Greg Madden knewRyan back then or did he own the sperm bank then and gave Anna Ryan's sperm. ughhh I'm sick of David Thank god he's leavingthe show, and i hope for good. Tina

    Emma should given to Tad and Dixie. Leave it at that

    Come on people, let the show play this one out. Just maybe they have a good idea about Emma being Ryan's. We'll just have to wait and see...let Tad find his own kid. That would make him the happiest and feel less like the way he has been the last few months.

    Ok If Ryan is Emma's father?...Then Erica is acually Tads mother hehe...I am tired of Dixie's suffering please someone give her the Kate I am always crying for her and I Love her and I can not stand to see her suffer...Dixie deserves closure...Please writers resolve this at once...

    I think it is great Ryan needs someone of his own. Kendall has Zack and I think that is great.

    I remember weeks ago Josh was going through Dr.Maddens papers and it was discovered that Josh inherited the docotr's estate. Josh needs to see if he can find out what happened to Dixie and Tad's baby and I hope he discovers that the baby belongs to them. There are stories in the news everyday of people kidnapping a child because of one they lost/ THis would be a great story line for Annie, that she took Emma/Katie.

    You can tell Julie Hanan Caruthers is working on this show now. The storylines are getting as strange as they did when she was at the helm of Port Charles. I say get rid of her and bring on someone else.

    Dixie is the one that is a pain in the butt. Ever since she came back she has done nothing but cause problems. She knows David was a no good SOB but she continued to believe everything he told her and continues to ruin lives. Now she is going after Chrystal. Why doesn't she get her life in order and leave everybody else alone. As far as Emma goes, it was a fixed DNA of David's that caused the uproar and how many more children will Dixie go after to ruin their lives because she gave her child up. Any one that has adopted a child when the mother has given her up should not have to give the child up to the biological parent when she decides she wants the child. Think of the parent that has raised the child and the child loves.
