NEWS ROUNDUP: Susan Lucci Blames Brian Frons, Michael Park To 'Tuck', Bree Williamson Joins HAVEN

Susan Lucci blames Brian Frons; excited about the future.
“We shot the [DEVIOUS MAIDS] pilot and everyone was very hands-on. Marc [Cherry] was on the set at all times. It’s pretty hilarious. In a few weeks, after the upfronts on May 15, we should know for sure.”

Her other role as host of DEADLY AFFAIRS is equally delicious, albeit more ironic. It’s reenactments of the crimes of passion committed by real-life Erica Kanes.

To seduce her into taking the gig, Schleiff, she said, “showed up at our first meeting with a full-sized cardboard Erica Kane with blood all over her hands. It was love at first sight.”

Speaking of blood, what about ex-ABC daytime president Brian Frons, who killed ALL MY CHILDREN?

“Yes, I blame him for ending ALL MY CHILDREN and the viewers do, too. But the viewers simply weren’t there anymore.”
