ATWT turns 45, Mark Consuelos' new role and More

Soapdom's Linda Marshall-Smith Greetings Suds Buds!

Zooom Vroom Vroom. That's all I can say. What a day at the races. Mark Consuelos (Mateo, AMC) is competing in this year's Pro/Celebrity Grand Prix, raced on the ocean-front city streets of Long Beach, CA. In spending the day with the stars as they tested the track for the very first time with the race a mere ten days away, you couldn't help but smell the burning rubber and feel the excitement as they vroomed down the straightaway. Decked in protective headgear, I got to race two laps with Pro driver, Scott Pruett, and let me tell you, those Solara Pace Cars go fast! "Who needs Space Mountain?" I quipped and Pruett laughed as I gripped my seat and braced myself for each hairpin turn. According to Pruett, we were only doing a paultry 110 miles an hour! Is that all? LOL Now, on with our coverage of Mark Consuelos, AMC's very own Speedracer!

"And We're Off!"
by Jessica Radloff

Poor Kelly Ripa (Hayley, All My Children, Live with Regis and Kelly.) She's a working mother holding down two jobs, a second child on the way and no husband in sight! And why? Because husband, Mark Consuelos (Mateo, All My Children) is one of 15 celebrity participants at the 25th Toyota Pro/Celebrity Grand Prix Race in Long Beach, California. As part of the event, Toyota will help raise more than $100,000 for 'Racing for Kids,' a non-profit program benefiting Southern California's childrens' hospitals.

In gearing up for the big race, to be held April 6-8, 2001 and then broadcast it its entirety on ESPN, Saturday, April 28th at 3 PM ET, Consuelos and his competitors have been undergoing a rigorous training regimen to master both the course and the vehicles.

Tuesday, March 27th was the first time the celebrity drivers had the chance to experience driving the track. The press was invited and Turtle-Run caught up with Consuelos, as well as a surprise guest, to get the lowdown on racing, his wife, and fulfilling a life long dream!

You would think that in order to compete Consuelos' racing experience would be extensive. Not necessarily so. Then, what's his secret? Along with the four-day mandatory training program in Lancaster, CA a few weeks earlier, Consuelos gained his expertise from --

"Playstation!" he bellowed. "And a couple of video games here and there, but that's about it," exclaimed the daytime star. But don't start worrying yet! Racing has been a life-long dream for Consuelos, and he's followed the sport all over the country. In fact, former AMC co-star Michael Lowry (ex-Jake) was on-hand as Consuelos' official videographer and supporter! Wife Kelly was back in New York taping her talk show, but if all goes as planned, she hopes to be at the race this coming weekend.

"Mark and I just love racing," revealed Lowry. "We've shared a real love for it ever since we've known each other -- starting with All My Children. We travel, go to Italy, Montreal and watch the races there." He laughed and continued, "Kelly is upset because Mark takes ME to Italy!"

Lowry was delighted that his friend and former co-star had gotten this amazing opportunity to compete in the race. "A lot of his castmates back east are very jealous," said Lowry. "Not to mention that it's just great to be in the inner circle here and talk with these real-life drivers who are just putzin around," continued Lowry. "Mark is living a dream."

But it's not all fun and games. According to Consuelos, "You think you can drive until you come out here, but it's not until you start working with these instructors, and [then you realize] I'm not good!"

Don't feel too bad for Consuelos though. Competing with the likes of 4-time Superbowl quarterback, Jim Kelly, Tai Bos Billy Blanks, and Olympic swimming gold-medalist, Dara Torres, allows for some eventful downtime! Turtle-Run caught Consuelos catching pass after pass as he played football with ex NFL star, Kelly, and like a proud papa, Lowry was there to capture it all on tape! "Its great!" said Lowry. "Mark has me documenting everything!"

When Consuelos does take to the tracks for the main event, it will be after lots of video has been recorded. With four rigorous days of training and three days of racing, Celebrity Source President Rita Tateel says that the celebrities are extremely prepared. In fact, to offset the celebrities from the pro-drivers, Consuelos and his peers will be given a 30-second advantage when the flag signals "Go!" Many of the major streets in Long Beach will also be blocked off to allow for ample racing room and fewer distractions.

After Consuelos returned from his first 30-minute practice run on the 11-turn, temporary street circuit, 1.97 mile track, he could only comment how great it felt to be behind the wheel. Like the Toyota Celica GT-S Liftback he'll be driving, he is definitely revved up and ready for the big race! Will he be remaining in LA until the event or returning to New York to tape scenes for AMC? "I'm flying home tonight," he said. "To my pregnant wife!"

If you plan on attending the Grand Prix, get there early! The three-day weekend generally draws over 225,000 spectators, making it the largest paid spectator special event in Southern California. For updated information about schedules, tickets and race-related events, visit www.longbeachgp.com , www.toyotamotorsports.com or call 888-82-SPEED and root Consuelos on! We're sure he'd love to have you!

As the World Turns Turns 45!

In 1956, Dwight D. Eisenhower was president, a future singing sensation named Elvis Presley made his television debut, the first telephone conversation over transatlantic cables took place, and a new television program called As the World Turns premiered on the CBS Television Network. On Monday, April 2, 2001, ATWT celebrates its 45th anniversary, airing its 11,477th episode of daytime drama. With 25 recent Emmy nominations, including a nod for Outstanding Drama Series, the show is still going strong in 2001.

Created by Irma Phillips, ATWT premiered as a 30-minute live show, unprecedented at the time for a soap opera. Top-rated from 1959-1971, it was the first daytime drama with its own spin-off, a show called Our Private World, which aired in prime time. Veteran cast members who still play integral characters on the program include 2-time Emmy winner Larry Bryggman (John), Kathryn Hayes (Kim), and Marie Masters (Susan), all of whom have been starring on ATWT for at least 25 years.

Today, action in the mid-western fictional town of Oakdale centers around the fight for Holden's (Jon Hensley) affections between his wife, Lily (Martha Byrne) and her identical twin sister, Rose (also played by Byrne); Katie 's (Terri Conn) determination to learn the secret that her marriage-of-convenience husband Simon (Paul Leyden) harbors; the love triangle between Julia (Annie Parisse), Carly (Maura West) and the man who is caught between them, Jack (Michael Park); and Craig's (Hunt Block) desperation to wed Barbara (Colleen Zenk Pinter) despite opposition from everyone around them.

Throughout the long history of the show, ATWT has served as a launching pad for some of today's well-known Hollywood names including Julianne Moore, Oscar-winner Marisa Tomei, Meg Ryan, Parker Posey, James Earl Jones, Cicely Tyson, Jason Biggs, William Fichtner, Jordana Brewster,Grammy-winner Lauryn Hill, Margaret Colin, Dana Delaney, Steven Weber, Ming Na,and John Wesley Shipp. The show's most recent and notable additions to its cast are Broadway star Lea Salonga (Miss Saigon) and character actor, Tony Musante.

TRO congratulates Proctor & Gamble Productions, CBS Television, Executive Producer, Christopher Goutman, Headwriter, Hogan Sheffer, and the talented ATWT cast, crew, producers and writers past and present on this milestone achievement. Happy 45th anniversary As the World Turns!

Premiering on SoapCenter, Monday, April 2, 2001

AMC's Teen Drug Storyline: All My Children is telling a drug-abuse story involving teens Bianca, Laura, and their friends, and SoapCenter is taking this opportunity to examine teen Ecstasy use in America. Is AMC's depiction realistic? Tune in and find out! "A lot of kids are being told that it is not addictive," says AMC executive producer Jean Dadario Burke, "but it has terrible ramifications and it can destroy you in many ways."

Emmy Spotlight No. 1: The first in a series that will offer an in-depth look at this year's talented Emmy nominees. First up are the contenders for Outstanding Younger Actress. You may know their characters, now here is your chance to find out a little about the actresses who portray them. Get up close and personal with Eden Riegel (Bianca, AMC), Adrienne Frantz (Amber, B&B), Terri Conn (Katie, ATWT), Kristina Sisco (Abigail, ATWT) and Annie Parisse (Julia, ATWT) as SoapCenter kicks off their Emmy countdown!

And we're not just talking a couple of pages! You'll hear from folks like Patrika Darbo (Nancy, DOOL), Shemar Moore (Malcolm, Y&R) and Eden Riegel (Bianca, AMC). "I read the script, read the scene over and over, and the lines (just) come to me, " says Jay Pickett (Frank, PC). "It's like anything that you do all the time, it becomes second nature. And learning lines is second nature."

The "Grandma Factor" on Soaps: Some grandmothers are loving, helpful and hip (like Alice, DOOL), while others are haughty, distant and snobbish (like Amanda, PC). Yet some can be tough but loving (like Lila, GH). Using interviews and clips, SoapCenter takes a look at the Grandma's of soaps and discovers that these characters play a very important role. "Jennifer respects her grandmother and admires her grandmother more than anybody else in the world," shares Melissa Reeves (Jen, DOOL).

Soap Opera or Reality? Reality TV Couples Who Are Still Together

How many reality fans are out there in soapdom?  Do you have your favorite reality couples? As I am sure you know, reality shows give birth to a fair amount of public romances, and a lot of public breakups. It's just like soap operas, but in real time! In reality (pun intended), fact is truer than fiction and some of these reality couples engage in more outlandish activities than the most contrived storylines on our favorite soaps.

As in real "everyday life," couples have their ups and downs.  What's coming up roses one day, is cause to walk the plank on another. But when your personal life is played out on the airwaves for the world to see, it adds a new and distracting dimension to to being able to keep one's personal life personal.
