"All My Children" star Susan Lucci has added an epilogue to the paperback edition of her book, "All My Life: A Memoir," in which she describes how she blasted ABC Daytime chief Brian Frons, reports the New York Post’s Page Six.
“I think our being in this position is the result of some very bad decisions by you," Lucci says she told Frons. Lucci has played Erica Kane on the show since 1970.
Lucci claims Frons placed a new head writer on the show in 2008 who oversaw "subpar" writing and pushed out the soap’s creator, Agnes Nixon, the story says. Lucci adds that Frons told her in April "All My Children" would be replaced by a food show that was cheaper to produce, the piece adds.
“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 wrote, according to the story. “I watched Brian Frons’ decisions destroy the production of our show and the lives of people on both sides of the country.”
An ABC representative said the network was "sorry she felt the need to write this epilogue to an otherwise incredible career.”
