Soap opera life will continue for Susan Lucci after all, sort of. Sorry soap fans she is not going to another show, she will be hosting “Deadly Affairs” a real life soap opera show. Yep if you thought her days in Pine Valley were crazy you haven’t seen anything yet.
Susan Lucci became a household name by playing Eric Kane on the ABC soap opera All My Children. As Erica, she was involved in all sorts of drama from affairs, to corruption, to kidnapping to being married a lot. So she is used to drama. That of course was all fantasy now she is getting the chance to be a part of some real life soap opera style drama. The lovely Lucci is set to host and narrate the show “Deadly Affairs” for Investigation Discovery. Sounds very intriguing right, well it is. The show will reportedly focus on deceptive love relationships, including love triangles and betrayal, that end badly but instead of it being fiction these stories will be fact. Susan told The Hollywood Reporter that the show “will feature true-life tales of crimes of passion, that lead people down very dark paths”.
I have to say I am quite intrigued by this real life crime of passion show. Don’t get me wrong I would have loved for Lucci to continue to play the devilish but likeable Erica but that wasn’t in the cards. So I am pleased to see her be a part of a show like this. Yes I know this will not be anything like what I saw on AMC because it is real not made up but I still think it is going to be good. In all honesty I probably wouldn’t have even known about, much less watched, “Deadly Affairs” if it wasn’t for Susan so the powers that be did something right by hiring her because now I will be tuning in for sure.
What do you think about Susan Lucci’s new gig?
