It’s been 30 years since Kelly Ripa made her ABC Daytime debut playing Hayley on ALL MY CHILDREN in 1990, and the network is celebrating by hosting a very special reunion of some of that classic soap’s stars on LIVE! WITH KELLY AND RYAN! Ripa will be joined by former co-stars Eva LaRue (Maria), Susan Lucci (Erica), Finola Hughes (Alex), Cameron Mathison (Ryan), Walt Willey (Jack), and Dondre Whitfield (Terrence) for the special show scheduled to air on Thursday, Nov. 5. Check your local listings for the time it airs in your area. [UPDATE: If you missed it, you can click here to watch!]
Ripa was a cast member of AMC from 1990 until 2002, though she did return for a couple episodes in 2010 to help the soap celebrate its 40th anniversary. In 2001, she was named as Kathie Lee Gifford’s replacement and the daytime chat show was renamed LIVE! WITH REGIS AND KELLY. Ripa also found success in primetime playing an ex-soap star in the ABC sitcom HOPE & FAITH. In addition to the AMC reunion, Thursday’s episode of LIVE! will also play host to a HOPE & FAITH reunion as Faith Ford and Ted McGinley catch up with Ripa.
Don’t miss this chance to see some of your AMC faves together again as they reminisce about Pine Valley and some of the soap’s classic moments!
