FLASHBACK: Daytime's 10 Most Tempting Women (1978)

As a tribute to ALL MY CHILDREN's final weeks on ABC, we continue our series of daily Flashbacks today with a feature that included ALL MY CHILDREN's Susan Lucci (Erica) and Candice Earley (Donna).

The January 1978 issue Rona Barrett's Daytimers magazine included a "Daytime's 10 Most Tempting Women" special issue which also profiled Kate Mulgrew, Veleka Gray, Jaime Lyn Bauer, Brooke Bundy, Deidre Hall, Suzanne Rogers, Katherine Glass and Kay Heberle.

Daytimers was a great source of information and fun gossip in its day but you had to live with occasional inaccuracies such as seeing "Candice Earley" on the cover and "Candace Earley" with an "a" on the inside. They also notably referred to Deidre Hall's legendary Marlena as "Marlene." But it was always worth the read.

Ignoring that, who do you think was the most "tempting" woman in AMC history?

We hope you enjoy and come back daily for a new AMC classic article.

  1. I loved watching Brooke Burke on GH. She was on GH when the show was so enjoyable.

  2. I miss beautiful talented Veleka Gray so much. She had more contract roles on soaps than any other actor in soap history. I wish she was still on the air.
