    Look at the bright side…at least they’re still a family and civil to one another. Whatever makes them happy is all that matters, even if separately. Best of luck!

    Oh, that’s so sad. Someone on social media asked Laura a while back about this, because she had not posted any recent photos of John (I felt badly that a complete stranger asked her such a personal question-on social media, too). Twenty years, by today’s standards, is a lifelong marriage. Oh, so sad, though.

    So sad, first it was Aisha Tyler now Laura. What’s going on with these 20 year marriages ending? After 20 years you would think the “until death do us part” was a done deal. Oh well, I hope they all find love again.

    Another marriage ending.

    Well I always say: men and women usually get divorced in their 40’s. Hollywood women over 50 are usually single because they are considered “way too old” in Hollywood lingo so they are SOL. It’s unfortunate – but men thrive in their 50’s because they’ve become ‘distinguished’ and we accept their wrinkle or two and maybe a roll or two……Men see a woman with one wrinkle and he runs as fast as he can. It’s reality.

GH Nurses’ Ball 2018 Part Three: Heartbreak, Revelations, A Surprise Guest!

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, it was the third installment of the GH Nurses’ Ball 2018, which featured: three musical performances, a reveal to Jason (Steve Burton) and Sam (Kelly Monaco) that Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is Henrik Faison, Maxie’s (Kirsten Storms) water breaking as she is in a car with Peter, and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) trying to cope with overhearing that Finn (Michael Easton) has deep feelings for Anna (Finola Hughes).

During the festivities, Ned (Wally Kurth) and his wife, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), take the stage and perform (What’s So Funny) Bout Peace, Love and Understanding, originally made famous by Elvis Costello. Later, in a tender performance Josslyn (Eden McCoy) and Oscar (Garren Stitt) bring down the house performing, “I Never Knew” the most moving moment thus far at this year’s ball as Oscar’s parents, Kim (Tamara Braun) and Drew (Billy Miller) look on with pride.

While the performances are happening onstage, backstage the drama heats up after Finn admits to Anna that he has feelings for her and how he has never stopped thinking about her. Alexis overhears this whole confession to Anna.

Upset, Alexis heads out of the ball and past the stage, even though she was supposed to receive the Pioneer Award. She heads to the bar. Finn finds her, but Alexis would prefer to be alone. He leaves. Enter Julian (William deVry)! Will Julexis finally get back together, or will Alexis push Julian away? Elsewhere, Sam tells Jason about the lighter of Cesar Faison’s she found in Peter’s office and the P.K. Sinclair book. Jason realizes that Peter is Henrik. Meanwhile, Anna has texted Peter again to meet her. But Maxie. who is with Peter, tells him she wants him to take her home, because she isn’t feeling well. Later, her water breaks while driving in the car with Peter, and she urges him to pull over.
