When All My Children ended, Erica Kane was jilted by long-time lover, Jackson Montgomery, and possibly in the line of a bullet. It set the stage for AMC to continue without Susan Lucci. But not so fast -- Lucci says she hasn't ruled out moving to the Internet.

Despite an earlier report that Susan Lucci (Erica Kane) has all but ruled out a move to the Internet with All My Children, the Emmy-winning actress recently announced that she and All My Children's new owners, Prospect Park, are still engaged in talks.

"My heart is certainly there with Agnes Nixon, with All My Children, with Erica Kane, with our incredibly passionate viewership," Lucci said in an interview with NPR. "I would love to [continue with All My Children] and we are trying as we speak to work that out, and I'm just waiting for a response at this moment," Lucci said in a visit to NPR.

Earlier this month, the Industry blog, Deadline Hollywood, reported that Lucci had rejected an offer from Prospect Park that was on par with her most recent contract with ABC.

"[A]fter a two-week deliberation, Susan Lucci has turned down Prospect Park's offer to stay on the show," Nellie Andreeva wrote in her blog for Deadline Hollywood, adding that Lucci attempted to "gouge" the new production company for a higher salary and fewer work hours.

For her part, Lucci told fans at a signing for her memoir, All My Life, to not always believe what they read. Deadline Hollywood's article, which cited anonymous sources, came out just days after an updated version of her memoir was released in paperback with a scathing account of how ABC handled All My Children's last few years on the air.

"We have all the respect in the world for Susan, and are sorry she felt the need to write this epilogue to an otherwise incredible career," ABC said in response to Lucci's remarks.

To date, Prospect Park has announced deals with two All My Children stars, Cameron Mathison (Ryan Lavery) and Lindsay Hartley (Cara Castillo).
