Susan Lucci has some tough words for ABC exec

Susan Lucci is not pleased one bit about the cancellation of “All My Children.” And she’s reportedly using the epilogue in the paperback edition of her autobiography, “All My Life: A Memoir,” to air her grievances about one ABC executive in particular.

“I think our being in this position is the result of some very bad decisions by you,” Lucci writes to Brian Frons, head of daytime TV for the network, according to the New York Post. “An iconic show was losing out to greed.

“If Brian Frons could show his bosses that he could save the network 40 percent ... he could keep his job even if the rest of us lost ours.”

The Emmy winner delivered a personal blow to Frons, writing that he has a “fatal combination of ignorance and arrogance.”

“All My Children” was canceled this April, with Lucci saying she was “looking forward to all kinds of new and exciting opportunities” beyond Erica Kane. Apparently one of those opportunities was getting to really, really speak her mind about her former boss.
