Susan Lucci

Susan Lucci may not be heading to a computer near you when her canceled ABC series All My Children heads online, but could the famed daytime actress be readying for reality TV?

Some of Lucci's fellow soap stars think she should...

The cast of E!'s Dirty Soap says reality TV is the way to go for endangered soap stars.

"We're going to have Susan on our show," said Days of Our Lives hunk Galen Gering—he was joking, by the way—when we chatted yesterday about their new series, premiering Sunday at 10 p.m.

"She's very expensive, no one can afford her," added The Bold and the Beautiful's Brandon Beemer.

"Give it about six more months, you never know what will happen," Beemer said. "People might start ponying up and spending some money and Susan will be like, 'You know what? I just want to work.'"

Kidding aside, General Hospital's Kelly Monaco isn't laughing when it comes to the future of daytime television.

"I can't be ignorant or naive and say that we're going to be on for the next 50 years," she said. "We might be gone in a year from now. I hope we're not."

"I think part of me doing Dirty Soap and doing this reality show is in part by salvaging some sort of audience that...we don't have right now," Monaco added. "Reality is such a big hit right now, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em."
