Elsewhere in AMC alum news, Cameron Mathison (ex-Ryan) took to Facebook to tell fans where he stands on returning to the soap. “4 those asking, I’m not sure if I’ll be part of the new AMC,” he wrote. “I’m lucky to be working these days, so I’m working on the scheduling. Hope so!”

Ready for more of today’s TV dish? Well…

  • Another thing with former fat girls seeking revenge? Why can’t they still be fat, showing that you don’t have to be skinny to be successful AND stick it to twig b*tches? Ugh.

    • Frak yes to this! I’m so tired of the former-fat-girl trope. Some of us are still fat and we’re sucessful and awesome and hella strong from the torment that’s been dished at us over the years.

      • You’d be healthier if you weren’t fat. Being fat is not something to aspire to or be happy about. That’s probably why the show is about FORMER fat people!

    • “Twig” b*tches? For real? How would you like it if I called a fat person a tub of lard or a whale? Yet you think it’s fine to call a thin person a “twig”? Really, what is wrong with you?

      • I have to agree with Alex! Being fat is a known fact to be unhealthy and most likely leads to disease and early death. Overeating is awful for your body and no exercise is even worse. It’s hard work to get thin so why not celebrate it when they do! You don’t want to work hard and watch what you eat fine but don’t complain about people who do and call them ‘Twig Bitches’

        • Seriously guys, that isn’t the point. Everyone knows being fat isn’t healthy. No one is disputing that or, as Alex said, “aspiring” to it. I think what Emster and mia are saying is that a show about people changing so they have enough pride in themselves to stand up to former bullies might send the wrong message to all the people who struggle to love who they are to begin with. None of us have seen the show so we don’t know how it will be portrayed, so maybe chill out a little bit before we get into a debate about healthy bodies v. healthy body images. Also, “twig b*itches” is a quote from the movie “Pitch Perfect.”

  • A Cher drama? I am so there.

  • So glad Debbie Morgan has signed on for the AMC revival. Maybe more actors will follow her.

  • Welcome, Angie! I could do without Ryan but at this point I’d probably take just about any of them! (except Erica and Dixie). Now, can we just please have it back on our tv screens? Pretty please?

  • All I can see is the Seer when I look at Debbi Morgan :)) Loved her on Charmed

  • Debbie Morgan looks fabulous! She is an extremely talented ageless actress. Glad to see her back on TV.

  • So excited that Debbi Morgan’s signed on! I hope that between her signing and Vincent Irrizary doing so, it means a lot of the other prinicpal actors from the show return as well -namely Michael E. Knight because we need the Martins represented! And perhaps David Canary since he lives near where they will be filming, maybe he’ll make a return – how great would that be?! We need the Chandlers too after all!

    This is great news…I’m so happy the show’s coming back, even if it will only be online…

  • I’m so thrilled that AMC is returning. I’ve missed it so much. I ‘m so glad Debbi is returning as well. I’m in hopes that more of the cast joins her. Can’t wait.
