Mayor gets soap opera role -- this time a fictional one

VillaraigossaLos Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has a little experience starring in soap operas. But this time around, the mayor will be appearing in a fictional one: ABC's "All My Children."   

ABC said today that Villaraigosa and L.A. City Council President Eric Garcetti each plan to stop by the show at its new production studio in Atwater Village. First up -- he's the mayor, after all -- will be Villaraigosa, who will shoot an episode Tuesday to celebrate the show's relocation to Los Angeles after 40 years of shooting in New York.

Look at that smile on Tony V's face in the picture. He has the biggest smile on his face. I would be smiling to if I had a babe like Lou Parker.

And this differs from his real life how?????

he is a soap opera we have all seen too long!

is this what he get's paid to do for the city? tony villa should concentrate on solving the city's problems, then his personal problems, before going hollywood.

What the heck is going on L A County and California. This is like a sick twisted joke, the schools are going down, teachers are being forced to take a pay cut (LAUSD) the budget is a mess for the county and this dude is going on soap operas? Is this for real. Guess he is just trying to follow in the foot steps of our great governer.
