While I am still trying to get an answer as to whether or not there is truth to the rumors of Sony buying All My Children and One Life To Live, Jamey Giddens of Daytime Confidential and Pop Confidential fame says via twitter that there is nothing concrete as of yet. " I have no idea. It's a RUMOR. LOL I think we all have to let it play out." Jamey also goes on to say that for Disney its all about the almighty dollar "If Disney can make a buck off those shows, they will sell, but getting someone to buy will be very difficult." When asked about talks between Disney and DirectTV and the rumors head on Jamey had a very interesting, cryptic response "Got nothing. Sorry. :-( This doesn't mean it isn't true though. I'm not gonna run anything until I know it dead to rights."
Jamey also drops this little tid bit about NBC, basically saying that there may be hope yet
I do know from my sources that "NBC wasn't as anxious to get out of soaps as CBS, they simply wanted to own their soaps." and he continues to say "I wouldn't be surprised if there is some truth to their being interest, I am just cautious after GL/ATWT."
