“Daytime Television’s Leading Lady,” Susan Lucci is best known for her television portrayal of the captivating and iconic Erica Kane on ABC-TV’s “All My Children.” This role spurred a lucrative on-screen career spanning nearly five decades–a duration that still doesn’t seem long enough to garner all of the honors and accolades she’s earned in that time
A “Best Actress” Emmy, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, an induction to the Disney Legend family, a place on E! Entertainment’s “Top Entertainers of the Year,” and on the list of Barbara Walters’ “10 Most Fascinating People”–these are just a few things Lucci has collected along the way. The rest–such as her bicoastal dressing room sofa and Escada Emmy Awards ball gown –can be purchased in her exclusive sale with EBTH.
Revisiting some of these prized possessions during the downsizing process has been somewhat “emotional,” Lucci admits. She recalls some of the memories attached to the sofa that lived in her dressing room, both in New York and Los Angeles, “I took power naps on that sofa. I studied lines on that sofa. I did interviews on that sofa.” Bidders can also shop her closet, which houses designer fashion that has walked the red carpet, been photographed on the cover of her best-selling book, and worn on-screen. Lucci considers herself lucky to have amassed such a collection of beautiful items and memories over the years, and that by divesting and giving back to a charity close to her heart, she can make room for what’s next.
A portion of the proceeds from this sale will be donated to United Cerebral Palsy of New York City.
“It was time for me to let go of these fabulous items that I’ve been lucky enough to acquire over the years and make room for new memories.” –Susan Lucci
