There are many of you out there already suffering from a new syndrome since Friday, called “NoMoreAllMyChildren and I’mStill Tuning In” syndrome. Many of you have still turned on ABC at that coveted All My Children time, but to no avail, on September 23, 2011, the show was cancelled. Some of the most missed of the show will be characters Erica Caine, Jesse Hubbard and Angie Baxter (later known as Angie Hubbard).
Angie, played by Debbi Morgan and Jesse played by Darnell Williams, haven’t been reunited that long and WHAM! the show is over. Jesse was killed off of the show in 1988 only to be reunited with his soul mate Angie 20 years later. The two, according to the Daily Beast, are considered “the first African American super soap couple.”
There always some bumpin’ and grindin’ going on in Pine Valley and other soap cities, but Jesse and Angie were no fly by night love affair. Debbi Morgan said, “I remember once Darnell and I had a scene and we were talking about some characters breaking up and Darnell ad-libbed, ‘Well, baby, you know nobody in Pine Valley stays together but the black folks.’”
The show is obviously missed and here’s an interview with the “super couple” here. Also, check out a classic scene from the show. Goodbye All My Children.
