GH's Kelly Thiebaud On Crutches! What Does That Mean For Britch?

Nothing more evil than a woman on crutches?  You bet!  Especially if that woman is General Hospital’s evil Dr. Britt! According to Soap Opera Digest, actress Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) will be on-screen with crutches for a while beginning on today’s episode after breaking her femur in real life!

But where there is an unexpected injury to a soap star, leave it to the creatives behind-the-scenes to come up with something that works in story!  GH’s head writer Ron Carlivati revealed to SOD, “We had to write in the crutches and we said that she fell in the parking lot, but we sort of hinted that maybe Frisco may possibly have had something to do with it as a warning to leave his daughter. We had a little fun with that. She may be hobbling along there for a while. It sort of reminds me of Sigourney Weaver in Working Girl. It makes her all the more villainous to be on crutches!”

So GH fans, let us know when you watch upcoming episodes if Britch on crutches is more villainess than just everyday evil Britch?

Oh I loved it.. worked well.. just something Frisco would do and suited her great. LOVED his reaction upon meeting Spinelli too. Funny!!

I thought the scene with Frisco and Spinneli was funny too. Hope Britt and Frisco have more confrontation scenes.

Wishing her a speedy recovery. Happy to have on screen with or without crutches. I love evil Britt!

Sorry to hear about her realife injury. But as for Britch, i hope Frisco had something to do with it. But if on crutches or on her broomstick shes the same old Britch who i hope cant get any worse. Hopefully RC will give her a softer side because if they dont i predict the character will be killed off in a who killed the Wicked Britch plotline.

And if they do kill her off, maybe Frisco will think Maxi did it, and take the blame for it. That way if Jack Wagner doesnt stay with GH fulltime his character of Frisco could be sent to prison for Britches death. Id rather see him do something noble like this for Maxi instead of having Frisco abandon her again. This way JW could at least come back in the future for more guest appearances.

Works for me… they could have put her in a hospital bed in traction and it would be better! Then maybe someone could mix up the medication and… just kidding… maybe…

This is kind of old news.

The real sad thing is that she had to bow out of her commitment to Habitat for Humanity with her fellow co-stars.

Oh u are right on the button Michael he reminded of me of when Todd met Spinelli. I wish Jack Wagner would have scenes with Roger Howarth

i love Brit she’s a fun villian, and i hope GH keeps her on for a long time, i hate when fans compare her to lisa niles, and are already waiting for her to go all fatal attraction. that has already been done so hopefully gh wont repeat this plotline . GH needs villians too and not all of them have to be psychos. Brit is beautifull, sure she’s not nice and is selfish but theres got to be more to her.. So i plead to GH please don’t turn her into a stereotypical psycho or into lisa 2.0.

I’m with you! I love Britt the Bitch!!
she plays the part well and I wanna slap her through the wall, and that means she is great!!!
A soap isn’t worth a nickle with a Queen Bitch..

((heh Y&R doesn’t have a Queen Bitch nor a Hardcore Villain; it’s very bland ..)

jim

I did write that they should soften her character because i do hope they keep her around. I did ask if she was going to be related to Lisa because when Patrick mention Lisas name the camera briefly focused on Brit and her reaction hinted a Lisa connection. I wouldnt care if they were related and Brits original intent was to harm Patrick blaming him for Lisas death then fell in love with him instead but not turn out to just be another Lisa because we’ve already been there. I feel Brit would have great chemistry with A.J. but then Elizabeth, who was long overdue 4 a storyline, was paired with him.

I’m really glad this happened to her. ( Britt, not the actress.) She’s evil and needs bad things to happen to her for a change.

Rachel

I hate the character. Nothing against the actress…..but it makes me wonder what Carlivati is doing to my once favorite show. Perhaps Britt can take one of her crutches and knock some sense into the head writer…..before he has a full on “Pratt” effect on GH.

Christine

The rumors I have heard seem to indicate there will be a reason for why she is so evil and that the actress would really like for her softer side to come out.

It sounds to me like she is here to stay and that her character most likely will go through a transformation.

Poor her hope she gets better. Crutches make her all the less threatening like those guys in Home Alone.

Just like someone said,they need a bitch on the show,and so go for it. The girl certainly is beautiful and I may not root for her exactly but,she certainly has a place on the show. Lisa was just plain evil. she needed to go.
She can always trip someone with her crutches.?

I absolutely cannot stand Britt. She is one of the worst actresses the show has seen in a long time. I admit her storyline is juvenile but she is completely unconvincing as a “doctor” and acts like it’s high school. I was very sorry to hear they put her on contract and hope that arrangement is short-lived.

If Nicholas is staying , he and Britt would be great together. They both have horrible family backgrounds. Nick would understand her better than anyone. He has the ability to reveal the real Britt. Hope she not reLly pregnant Love Sabrina with Payrick !!!!!

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.
