Column: NBC Gossip
Richard Burgi (Philip) has plenty of soap experience, including
a one-and-a-half year stint as Chad The Pimp on AW, and short-term
roles on As the World Turns, Guiding Light, and Ryan's Hope. "I was also
Susan Lucci for a while on All My Children," he teases. "Nobody knew that."
Burgi did screen tests last year for AMC (although it wasn't for
the role of Erica Kane). But, even though he didn't get the part, there
are no hard feelings. Quite the contrary, actually. "I was very grateful
because I didn't want to go back to New York," says the L.A.-dwelling actor.
"I wouldn't mind going back at some point - I hear All My Children is a
great soap. But for whatever reason, it worked out perfectly."

While Richard Burgi is having a great time with his new leading
lady, Ariana Chase (Kimerbly), he still hasn't forgotten Patsy Pease (ex-Kimberly).
Pease says Burgi offered kind words and a friendly ear after she
was dismissed from the show. And as far as Burgi's concerned, phoning
Pease was the least he could do. "She's very sweet," he says. "I want to
support her however I can. I give Patsy my prayers and understanding."
