She best be for Sonny or Nathan..
Sonny and Nathan need a real woman, something new and exciting and great sex.
They both need some strange..
I’m ok with her being with either one.

It would be helpful to know how long she will be staying on, not knowing one can’t really detect who she will be tagged with or what/who she is..

(( Most likely she’ll be fixing Ava’s face..

Timmm

I liked Martina and Sonny. She was hot and could act.

Steph McB

Oscar’s mom???

IcePrincess

Oscar’s Mom could be Vanessa Marcil “Brenda”. Or Parker, the English professor.

Steph McB

How awesome it would be if Brenda (Vanessa) returned!!

rose

Trying to figure where she might fit. Oscar’s Mom?

Jimh

or Parker’s wife

Rebecca1

I can’t stand Parker. And Krissie…who has turned out to be beautiful…looks like her daughter. It’s just such an awkward pairing! Even the way Parker talks to her sounds motherly or as a teacher…

I think this actress coming aboard, who I’m not familiar with, might be a good fit for Parker. If not as her wife, then as a love interest.

But I do agree, Rose, and StephMcB above, that perhaps she might be Oscar’s mom.

Still. Why???????????????? Traded Lucy, Mac, Felicia, barely see Kevin and Laura, gave Hayden the boot..only to bring on Parker and this new person.

They could be good stories, but it’s still sad to have let go or diminished the roles of so many beloved characters in the process.

nancy dillingham

Speaking of Parker–why trot her out yet again? More than a little disconcerting to see a teacher with her former student again. Flaunting the lack of balance of power and promoting illicit and illegal behavior in the face of the spate of teacher abuse of their students that has been in the news in recent years–seems so totally inappropriate, at the very least.

James R. Poissant

Yikes—I hadn’t thought of that one!!!

Shay

Thank you, Nancy…I’ve already alluded to this obviously unbalanced personal dynamic between these two characters…whether it be that of professor/student or one smacking of Krissie’s “mommy issues” with her pining for someone much more mature than her own years, it’s indeed sick…This plotline fizzled the first time it was attempted and to revisit it now will only invite more criticism.

Rebecca1

Well to be fair, Nancy, the teacher/student stories in the news are about underaged students…kids. Kristina was in college when she met Parker so though they seem/look like an odd fit, it’s not illicit or illegal.

Jimh

There is also rumor Steve Burton’s new character is his father…earlier someone thought Brenda was coming back as his mom…why dont i even care???

James R. Poissant

I think she’ll be tied in with Steve Burton’s character. Can’t figure what capacity she’ll have on the canvas but I bet it’ll be good.

Phil

This is bogus! No offense to Korot, who is a great actress but why not keep Rebecca Budig instead! You cannot tell me that there was no more story to tell with Hayden! This is a big disappointment!

AJ

Nothing in this article indicates how long she’ll be around. I’d bet anything that this is NOT a contract role, thus much cheaper.

Steve

She might have a glorified day part like they gave to Jennifer Bassey and James dePaiva

Soaphound

I agree, Phil. It borders on insulting to boast about new characters or actors when they’ve let so many good ones go already.

Max Daddee

Totally agree with Phil and Soaphound; there’s no need to bring her on. Very disappointing to see Rebecca go and a newbie brought in. Good grief, what are these writers thinking. There was so much hype when we were told Hilary B.Smith was joining GH…got alot of people excited and her role all along was intended to last for a few day. Viewers shouldn’t be confused with puppets or fish being thrown bait.

Phil

Especially when you consider the connections Hayden had to the canvas! Alla Korot is a soap vet, but Budig is also and there was so much more that Hayden could have done. I hope they are not planning on bringing Budig back as Greenlea(sp?) I did not watch AMC and I want Hayden!

Shortcanuck

Do we know if it’s just for a few days or longer? This show really doesn’t need any more fringe characters

nancy dillingham

You said it!

Steve

Parker’s wife.

Allan reminds me of an older version of Lexi Ainsworth, so Parker would certainly have a “type”.

Jovin

Oh how I loved her as Jenna!! Another World was SO good circa 1990-93! I hope she plays someone connected to others and not some throwaway role. Off the top of my head I can’t think of anyone. Hopefully, she will NOT be involved with Sonny in ANY way whatsoever. But the show is kind of top heavy with women in that age range…Carly, Sam, Liz, Olivia, Ava, etc. Soaps have very little success creating and integrating new characters these days. I will hope for the best as I like her.

Susan

Who cares. Bring rebecca budig back. This is just not acceptable!

Carol

I second that — what a shame to hear they’re hiring yet another newbie while letting a fan favorite go. It’s just so unfair!!

Soaphound

Amen, Susan. I don’t give a fiddler’s finger about more newbies. Enough already!

Susan

I agree with you 100%

jaybird369

Soundhound…y-e-s…THANK YOU!!!!! To me, all of those newbies are like unwanted houseguests…BEYOND ANNOYING!!!!! B-L-E-C-H!!!!!

Have a good one, Soaphound.

Jimh

Finn’s ex wife or Sarah Webber

Jimh

or a former nun in love with ex priest Griffin

Wil

Yes! I need more Griffin in my life.

nancy dillingham

Speaking of Griffin–a bit disgusting to see him with Ava today. TPTB have really failed that character. To have him speak of “grace” to Ava was just as repugnant as seeing Sonny in the chapel invoking the name of God. Ugh! Shivers!
To have him “succumb” to Ava’s “charms”–just like that! Again, unbelievable and again disgusting.

Timmm

I like her. She is pretty. I remember her vaguely from Night Shift. People will bitch that its ANOTHER new character, use Bobbi, Felicia, ect but I’ve given up on “Classic GH”, Frank ruined that dream!

Shay

Not necessarily, Timmmbo….although I am no fan of newbie characters, I can at least applaud the fact that this actress hails from a defunct soap that many of us fondly remember and that its name is not “AMC” or “OLTL,” as is the usual case!!! With all the wonderful daytime dramas that are no longer on the air, the pool of available players from those said shows is practically endless, and as such, it’s refreshing to see that GH has finally found a place for someone who has not been a fixture at ABC for decades on end! Now we can only hope that the character will be worthy of this lovely lady’s talents….

Timmm

I see your side to. However, I long for the GH characters of yesteryear! SOME of which are currently on the show!

Shay

Oh, I hear you on that account, Timmmbo….but apparently the showrunners don’t—-no matter how frequently and loudly we send the message! I was actually being a bit pointed in my observation, since it was simply a relief to see someone…anyone…arriving in Port Charles from a different soap “world” (no pun intended….) other than Pine Valley, Llanview, or even Genoa City, for that matter!

jaybird369

Hey…as long as Alla Korot’s upcoming GH character doesn’t get horribly sucked into the CONSTANT Sonny/Carly foolishness…then I’m good.

Hey…just saying……….

Jimmy

Thank you. I resent so much that they killed off Alan because he and Monica should be the matriarch and patriarch of GH, but instead Sonny and Carly have claimed that position because it seems that major story always revolved around them and their horribly dysfunctional relationship.

Case in point: Sonny promised Carly that he wouldn’t lie to her ever again, and what does he do? Lie about Sam shooting him. The CarSon madness will never end.

jaybird369

Jimmy…aw, yeah, man. Sonny is nothing but a pathologically lying, murdering and cowardly LOWLIFE!!!!! Oh…and you’re right…the Sonny/Carly MADNESS will never end!!!!! Beyond sad.

Have a good one.

Michael

They should a GH drinking game for new characters that are brought in and then disappear very quickly.

Jimmy

Hopefully her character and story will be short term because GH does not need anymore long-term characters, especially when they recently let Rebecca Budig go just as Hayden was becoming a much more likable, relatable and well-integrated character. We finally got to meet her father and see the character come full-circle with owning up to her past, and now she’s gone – with a terrible “disappearance” twist as an explanation for her absence to boot.

Maca

Oooo jenna

Rodd

After news of RB & RWP being fired, who cares? I’m not a big fan of hers. Saw her at a public appearance when she first started on AW. She and Ricky Paul (whatever his last name is) wer bashing Connie Ford, which I thought was in very poor taste. Lost all respect her then and haven’t cared for her since. GH would be better off spending its money elsewhere…like in gett RB & RWP back on the canvass!

Jillie

So they get rid of RWP and then bring in a new one? Like I said earlier WTH!!! Why did they bring back Palmer? That is one of the most boring storylines I have seen. I loved the pairing of Kiki and Dylan; they made an awesome couple, but no we are going to get Palmer and Kristina shoved down our throats. Watching the 2 of them act together is like watching paint dry!

IcePrincess

Alla Korit is totally playing Susan Morgan (Jason’s Bio Mom) . She is alive and wil eventually fess up to having given birth to triplets (Steve Burton, Roger Howarth, Billy Miller). This will make fireworks with Monica, and reunite susan w/Scotty. All of this might not come out till Feb. but I’m afraid, they are pulling a Dallas stunt. “like Bobby in shower” Steve Burton will be the jason in the bed and Billy Miller will come back later as one of twins. Morgan is the one in the hood, and he made a fist cuz he wants to make Ava pay for what she did to him. Nikolas ain’t coming back yet, remember Spencer can’t return to studio until next summer, (cuz Nickolodeon show). And I predict Billy Miller will leave show by Nov. And thats when the worst news will explode, Jill Farren “killer of soap shows” will come back to exec produce…And she will fire every actress over 40 on the show. And then kill off Monica like she did to Stuart Damon for turning 65.

GH’s Laura Wright and Wes Ramsey Talk Their Love Connection & The Demands Of Daytime

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

After presenting for the first time together, at the 45th Annual Daytime Emmys since they’ve been a couple, Laura Wright (Carly) and Wes Ramsey (Peter aka Henrik) of General Hospital have certainly been in the throes of a romantic, fun, and cherished relationship. The two former stars of Guiding Light reconnected last year at Emmy time. Now, sharing their over one year anniversary, Michael Fairman TV caught up with Laura and Wes to get some insight into what makes their relationship work amidst the hustle and bustle, and pace of both being on a network television daytime drama series, and with the pressures of Hollywood where often relationships between two actors seem to start hot and heavy but then fizzle out.

If you caught this week’s GH, you witnessed that the town of Port Charles has found out that Peter is the notorious Cesar Faison’s son, and the ramifications that will be felt for weeks and months and potentially years to come. Meanwhile, Carly is in all sorts of trouble, thanks to naughty Nelle (Chloe Lanier). Nelle is making Carly look awfully unstable and what happens next could change Carly’s life forever.

So, what do these two lovebirds have to say about their relationship and their passion for working on the soaps? Check out what they had to share below. 

Wes, you had met Laura originally years ago on Guiding Light.

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Wes: Yes, 15 years ago in New York.

And what did you think of her then?

Wes: Well, I was smitten, but I had to keep it to myself.

You had to keep it under wraps, huh?

Wes: Yep!

Laura: I was married then.

Wes: She was pregnant with her second child.

Laura: And he’s a good Kentucky boy.

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Wes: Uh-huh! But we would run lines in the green room and I would try very hard to make sure she didn’t catch me staring at her… too often. But we laughed, and had great conversation.

Laura: I would always say, “Wes, will you run lines with me?,” because I would want to run my lines.

Wes: We never had story together, but she always knew I was game to hang out with her for a moment.

It’s good when you’re in a relationship with someone and you can laugh with them. You seem to be able to do that a lot!

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Laura: Oh, gosh. I think that’s all we do.

Wes: Yes, yes, yes, yes…

Laura: Like, we belly laugh. It gets to the point where people would think we were ridiculous. We’ll say things and just think it’s the funniest thing ever and people would be like, “You guys have a problem …” and we’re like, “Yeah.” (Laughs)

Laura, and then he comes back into your life years later…

Wes: That’s right, it was Emmy weekend 2017.

Laura: I totally was not expecting it at all. Even when I gave him my number I walked away going “huh…”

You mean you thought he wouldn’t call?

Laura: No, I didn’t feel that… because he hit on me hard. He’ll tell you that.

Wes: I still am hitting on her.

Laura: I remember I walked away quick after he got my number. I was like, “Oh, my God … I gotta go.”

Courtesy/Instagram

Wes: There was an assertiveness on my part that was for sure 15 years in the making. I did not expect to run into her. I also did not expect for her to tell me that she was recently single. In that split second, it was one of those, “stop the presses!” moments. Like, you need to give me your number, I’m taking you to dinner.

Laura: I go, “Oh, be quiet! Are you like, 32, because I can’t do that.” (Laughs)

Wes: And I said, “Far from it.”

Laura: He’s like, “I’m getting ready to be 40.” And I’m like, “I can do that!”

Then, on top of all of this, Wes, you land a primo role on General Hospital. That of Henrik aka Peter, Cesar Faison’s son.

Photo Credit: Courtesy/ABC

Wes: Yes, a dream come true.

Laura: I’m going to jump in and say it’s a role that he worked all on his own for. He had to screen test against 8 plus guys, 3 different auditions, 2 different days.

Wes: That’s true.

Laura: I can’t say strong enough that the best actor got the role. Meaning, Wesley is so talented and has the ability to give this character the depth, and emotion, and layers that it needs to tell the story that needs to be told. I just think he’s incredible.

So, did you know from the get-go who you were going to be playing?

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Wes: I did not.

Laura: I did! (Laughs)

Wes: I’m thrilled that the writers have been giving me such incredible material to dive into.   Each month that goes by, it becomes more and more complex, and more and more layered and intense. I love the depth… I love the conflicts… I love the humanity… I love the desperation… I love the psychology behind it. It’s a very interesting story and a great journey to tell.

Laura: I was getting ready to say, where you mentally have to go to be the son of Faison and Anna Devane (Finola Hughes)! To blend that together is amazing. It’s incredible to watch.

You used to run lines together on Guiding Light. Do you run lines together now on GH? It’s like a full circle moment.

Laura: We do, and we carpool.

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Wes: Something we were trying to manifest together. We thought it would be a lot of fun to work together one day.

Laura: The last week we worked, we didn’t. He worked all afternoon. I worked all morning. I was like, “Are they doing this on purpose?” I was so mad! I was like, “Why are you in the afternoon everyday?” (Laughs)

Wes: She lost her chauffeur. (Laughs)

Laura: I did! He always drives us to work. I also love when we both have afternoon calls, because we love having mornings together. So, I didn’t get my morning, nor did I have my chauffeur!

So, two actors can have a good relationship? You see so many Hollywood relationships with actors and they go bust. But that’s not always the case …

Wes: Oh, my God, yes.

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Laura: I’m going to say this; I think I can see it being more difficult for daytime

actors, because the work we do is so intense. I know the weeks he’s getting ready to go into, and I’m getting ready to go into. Where we go emotionally and psychologically to tell these stories, on the level that we tell them, as quick as we tell them, you kind of have to become really in a headspace. The fact that we can …

Wes: … the long hours …

Laura: Yes, and exhaustion! You really have to go, “Wow! It’s not about me right now. It’s about us individually as actors.” Thank God, we know the workload. I know what he’s getting ready to go through.

Wes: I have always had so much respect for Laura’s work. On Guiding Light, I’ve always been in awe of what she’s capable of doing. So, the level of respect is obviously there. But also, the understanding whatever it is that you need from a personal assistant in one moment… or a life partner in another moment … or a best friend in moment … or whatever it is in order to get through the day-to-day and the week-to-week, so we can do what we love to do. We know we’re very lucky to have the opportunity to do what we love.

Laura was such a great co-host on my Soap Nation Live! Daytime Emmy Nomination Specials, in particular when she talks about acting. It’s so rewarding to hear the other actors who are guests on the show listening to what Laura has to say about her craft and respecting the hell out of her.

Wes: Without a doubt. You can’t watch her work and not be in awe. It speaks for itself.

Laura: I just love the journey of going to the places that we go; to bleed for it.

Wes: Leave it all out on the floor.

Laura: I know that process. So, when I see another actor that’s bleeding, I just bow to them, because I know what it takes to go there. I know the work that Wesley does. When I see that he’s spent at the end of the day, I’m like, “Babe, I so get it.” So, I can see where it could be really difficult for people that haven’t been there, because it’s a lot of work and you’re spent. It’s hard! For us, that works.

What do you think of Laura and Wes’ love connection? What do you think of the latest developments for GH’s Carly and Henrik? Comment below.

GH Nurses’ Ball 2018 Conclusion: Anna Learns Henrik Is Her Son, Maxie Has Her Son, Ava Wows, Mike & Sonny Duet!

In the most moving and exciting episode of this 2018 GH Nurses’ Ball, all roads lead to the truth about Henrik and how he is really living his life as none other than Peter August (Wes Ramsey).  First, Robert (Tristan Rogers) who has punched out by Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) on stage drags him outside of the ballroom for his part in the cover[up.  Robert is worried about Anna’s (Finola Hughes) safety. Nina (Michelle Stafford) confronts her husband about how long he’s known who Henrik is.  She later figures out why he has been trying to whisk her and Charlotte out of the country.

Courtesy/ABC

Onstage Mike (Max Gail) takes a mic, and makes a moment of saying he has Alzheimer’s and then launches into the song he remembers,“The Summer Wind.” As he sings, he imagines being accompanied by a big band as he proceeds to deliver a showstopper.  Suddenly, in reality, Mike is lost and disoriented … scared he stares around at the audience.  Sonny (Maurice Benard) gets up to the stage to help his dad by cluing him into the lyrics.  Sonny sings with Mike and gets him through the song.  They receive a standing ovation.

Ava (Maura West) who is preparing to perform her number comes across a moment between Kiki (Hayley Erin) and Griffin (Matt Cohen) backstage where they are in a hug.  Little does Ms. Jerome know that Griffin was consoling Kiki after her lewd run-in with Dr. Bensch (James DePaiva).   Then it is Maura West, who truly brings down the house for this year’s ball with her Ava’s rendition of “You Don’t Own Me.”  That tune was certainly a nod to all those that Ava feels have wronged her.  Yup! Sonny, Griffin and Kiki we think are some on her list!   Dressed in a white pant suit and accompanied by a bevy of male dancers, West knocked the interpretation of the song out of the park, to make it work for her character and the Nurses’ Ball.

Elsewhere, Maxie (Kristen Storms) has gone into labor, and Peter is right there safely delivering her baby boy. Maxie is taken by paramedics to the hospital, while Peter calls Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) at Maxie’s urging to let him know what happened.  Spinelli has just found out, through Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Steve Burton) that Peter is Henrick!

Anna is walking into a trap on the pier as she waits for Henrick. When he appears, he has no idea that Anna is his mother, and thinks it’s all been a set-up.  He points a gun to eliminate her once and for all, but Anna says she has something to tell him.

The Nurses’ Ball concludes with a touching finale of “Champion” featuring: Epiphany (Sonya Eddy), Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), Amy (Risa Dorken) and the other nurses.

So, what did you think of the final episode of the GH Nurses’ Ball 2018?  What did you think of the musical performances? Do you think Maxie’s baby will be OK? Will Anna be able to tell Henrik that she is his mom? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
