Last night on season 14 of Dancing with the Stars, the former star of General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful and Melrose Place, Jack Wagner danced his heart out in the second week of the ballroom dance competition.  But, is it good enough to keep him from getting the boot on tonight’s Results Show?  The judges seemed to think so, although they gave a few tips to Wagner to not over-dance, since he is such an engaging performer to watch.

Now, as to the question that all of soapland is wondering, if Jack is coming on to reprise his role as Frisco Jones on General Hospital?  Wagner told ABC Soaps in Depth,  “I’m prohibited from doing anything but dancing with Anna Trebunskaya (his DWTS dance partner)  right now at all.  Except maybe for going to the grocery store and feeding my kids!” No Port Charles updates. I’m actually under contract to ABC so if General Hospital wants to call then they can call.”

Watch Wagner’s dance after the jump from last night’s competition on Dancing with the Stars, and then let us know if you think GH exec, Frank Valentini should call Jack and try to negotiate tobring him on to the show when DWTS has concluded!

I wish Frisco would come back and help save Robin, which in turn could help save Maxie.

That would be so cool.

I would absolutely love for Jack Wagner to return to GH as Frisco Jones. Frisco and Felicia are my all time favorite GH couple and always bring excitement and interest to the show. GH has improved so much and now they have the opportunity to keep that going by bringing Jack back.

I agree with you. It would be a travesty to get this close to something that even 3 months ago would have been unthinkable and let it pass by. It’s the right time for GH and Jack to come to an agreement and get this going. It’s not like anything in this genre is a given anymore, so I think time is of the essence.

Supposedly they offered him a short stint like his ex-wife he wanted a contract they did not offer it, everybody they do not have the money to give these guys a contract MB,SB,TG etc cost a lot and how does Frisco fit in anymore? Mac has been Maxie’s father forever. Soaps are a dying breed RC &FV are doing everything possible to save it but they are working on tight budgets etc. maybe it is because I have owned a business for so long the economy is suffering you do what you have to do they are not going to waste a large contract on someone who does not fit on the canvas anymore. I like Jack Wagner but you can not turn the soap backwards Brad Bell released him for one reason could not afford him and he quit writing story for him long time ago.

Interesting. Do you have a source regarding JW wanting a full time contract? JW mentioned in an interview (on Access Hollywood) that he rejected GH offer due to his heavy schedule (it wasn’t his exact words, but something like that).

general hospital is on a budget abc/disney.doesnt want them going over the costs they were given,the rat channel would rather put there money behind there precious prime time soaps then keep the classic soaps that have been on for close to 50 years.They canceled all my children and one life to live so they can line there pockets with more cash ,Your right they are getting richer while our soaps are getting poorer ,So keeping all these characters it wont happen unless the rat channel Has a change of heart and I dont think that will happen anytime soon.Maybe after jack is done dancing with the stars ,which by the way is going down in the ratings this week they did.He can show up in port charles.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GH Preview – Week of June 18, 2018

This week on General Hospital, as Carly (Laura Wright) is being drugged up with anti-psychotic meds at Ferncliff, it’s Jason (Steve Burton) to the rescue.  Carly’s bff finds a way to infiltrate the state mental institution. Meanwhile, Carly had been talking to Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), who says he will help her through her ordeal emotionally.  But is Carly really seeing Kevin, or is it just a figment of her imagination?

Elsewhere, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) seeks out her ex Julian (William deVry) as she tries to come to terms with the root cause of her issues with the men she chooses to be in her life.  Julian, who has gotten closer to Kim (Tamara Braun), now has a chance to try to help Alexis and make up for the ways in which he hurt her.  Could this be the beginning of the patching up of Julexis, or the final straw?

Sonny (Maurice Benard) has just learned that Mike (Max Gail) moved the body buried at Croton. Where did Mike take it?  How will this have future implications?
