TVLine is reporting that Susan Lucci will perform in a multi-episode arc of Army Wives on Lifetime. Her character will play the wife of a retired general who offers advice to Claudia (Kim Delaney) about how to deal with a rival.
All My Children fans know that Lucci and Delaney worked together on that show back in the day, 1981-1984. Delaney played Jenny Gardner.
Lucci will appear in at least two episodes, which is cold comfort to those disappointed that she will not be joining AMC when it resurfaces online in January.
Army Wives also stars Catherine Bell (JAG). The show is a soap opera built around the wives of guys serving the the military and will commence its sixth season shortly.
