Susan Lucci tells it like it is about ABC daytime

HollywoodNews.com: Susan Lucci doesn’t get a lot of respect because people don’t know her. But Susan is fun and tough. She’s soldiered through 41 years of “All My Children” with ABC Daytime. She’s finally speaking out against them now that the show has finished taping. On Saturday morning in Page Six, Lucci released the chapter she’s added to her memoir, “All My Life.” being republished ten days before the show goes off the air.

Lucci socks it to Brian Frons, the miserable exec who destroyed ABC’s line up of soap operas to be replaced by junk talk and reality programming. Lucci finally blames Frons for moving the show to Los Angeles, getting rid of creator Agnes Nixon, and conspiring to kill AMC and OLTL. She told him: “I think our being in this position is the result of some very bad decisions by you.”

Lucci writes, “An iconic show was losing out to greed … If Brian Frons could show his bosses that he could save the network 40 percent … he could keep his job even if the rest of us lost ours.” She continues, “I watched Brian Frons’ decisions destroy the production of our show and the lives of people on both sides of the country.”

Lucci also writes in her addendum, according to Page Six, that Frons appeared “self-congratulatory” delivering the bad news to the cast, and he “has what, for me, is that fatal combination of ignorance and arrogance,” adding, “I cannot fathom any network executive choosing to alienate millions of loyal viewers in these economic times.”
