Take it with a grain of salt since it is The Douchebag, Nelson Branco spreading this rumor. I wouldn't be surprised if ABC is just throwing Deidre's name out there to scare Susan Lucci into staying with All My Children when AMC moves to the Left Coast. Obviously the Genie Francis rumor isn't true since she lives in Maine or something.
If Deidre goes to AMC would you watch if you never watched AMC before? If you do watch AMC now would you watch without Thorsten Kaye or Susan Lucci?
