Fans of All My Children who have been wondering what took Debbi Morgan (Angie Hubbard) off the soap for “personal reasons” and have voiced their concern since the actress made an unexpected exit from the show last month, now have some answers.
Recently, during Morgan’s visit on The Tom Joyner Morning Show, she admitted it was because she was diagnosed with Lyme disease. According to Soap Central.com, Morgan stated, “I had to take a leave of absence because I was diagnosed with Lyme disease. It’s nothing fatal. Lyme disease is an infection caused by the Borrelia bacteria from a tick. It’s a chronic condition and I’ve had it in my system for over 15 years. I had two pit bulls when I lived up in the hills of L.A. and could’ve gotten [bit] from [a tick on] them.”
Morgan assured fans that she was on the mend, and revealed that her All My Children return is imminent. Morgan is said to be reporting back to the AMC Studios in Los Angeles around the second week in February.
Good news, now maybe finally Angie can get her sight back?
