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.
