Rebecca Budig Threw Alicia Minshew a Surprise Birthday Party She’ll Never Forget


Technically, May 28 was the day when ALL MY CHILDREN actress Alicia Minshew (Kendall) celebrated her birthday, but she was so touched by all the love she got all week that she shared a wonderful story about one of her favorite birthdays — a surprise party thrown by AMC castmate Rebecca Budig (Greenlee, later Hayden, GENERAL HOSPITAL)!

“Thank you all for the birthday wishes earlier this week,” Minshew declared. “I truly felt the love! I had to post this photo from one of my favorite birthdays, 15 years ago! Sheesh, time flies. My dear pal Miss Budig threw me the best surprise party ever! I was cranky, it was raining, I didn’t feel well and wanted to stay home. But my mood quickly changed. This is the moment when I turned the corner and saw a ton of my favorite co-workers, dearest friends and family standing there. Look at the shock on my face and how proud she is! I cried like a fool. Best surprise ever.”

In the comments on Instagram, another of AMC’s “Fusion” ladies, Terri Ivens (Simone), cheered: “I sooo remember this!” Budig herself chimed in to remind Minshew about the special reason behind the scar she had around her neck. “You forgot to mention I wore a piece of your Emmy dress as a scarf,” she revealed. “Since it kept getting caught on everything and ripping all night. BFF forever my friend. And I’ll always be older than you.”

While AMC fans miss seeing their favorite characters like Greenlee and Kendall enjoying love, adventure, and intrigue on a daily basis, it’s so great to know that the actors stay in touch and remain friends to this day. And it makes it easier to imagine the residents of Pine Valley are still out there somewhere living their lives!
