Warren Buffett returning to All My Children

Warren Buffett on All My ChildrenThe richest man in the world has a secret. He likes to watch the goings on in Pine Valley. You know, the place Erica Kane -- Susan Lucci, don't you know -- calls home. And now he's going to be on his favorite ABC soap, too -- for the second time! Billionaire Warren Buffett will play himself on All My Children during May sweeps.

Mr. Buffett is being written into Erica's current storyline in which Ms. Kane has been imprisoned for insider trading (kind of like Martha Stewart). According to Michael Cohen, All My Children's publicist, Buffett first appeared on the show in 1992: "He's been waiting for an invitation to come back, and he was speaking to Agnes, and they made it happen."

Agnes is Agnes Nixon, the creator of AMC. She and Warren are old friends and when they recently ran in to each other, the idea occurred to her to ask him back. According to the publicist, it will be Erica's friend Opal (Jill Larson), the town beautician, who contacts Buffett to ask him to help get Ms. Kane out of trouble. The man that Forbes magazine says is worth $62 billion, drops everything and head to PV.

Are you serious? The same man thats runs a multi-billion dollar company & just passed Gates for the #1 spot at Forbes, takes time to watch a soap?? Maybe that's why I ever got rich, I stopped watching soaps after college was over.
