GH’s Nancy Lee Grahn Makes Statement On William deVry & Julexis’ Future!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

While Julexis fans anxiously await to see what the final word is on William deVry’s (Julian Jerome) status and contract talks with General Hospital, his leading lady and co-star, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis), is also waiting to find out what her on-screen romantic life may look like on the ABC daytime drama series.

During this past weekend’s ABC TCA (Television Critics Association) cocktail reception, the two-time Daytime Emmy-winning star offered to On-Air On-Soaps a statement on her hopes for deVry’s and Julexis’ future, plus how she views the complicated love story of Alexis and Julian, and what propels their undeniable attraction.

Grahn related: “Here’s my statement: I hope it works out with Will.  I literally know nothing. When it comes to contract negotiations it’s none of my business, or anybody else’s.  It’s tricky stuff.  I just renegotiated.  Mine went swimmingly.  Will’s is going how it’s going, and only he knows what that is.  Having said that; I would love for him to come back.

I would love for them to continue this story in an appropriate and realistic way. The two of them are madly in love with each other -‘madly’, I stress.  They both come from very violent families, and it makes sense that they would be together. The characters just need to both understand and dig deep as to why they are there, and go through that, and come out the other side.  That would be cool, and that’s how I could see them reuniting.  Alexis and Julian are addicted to each other, and that has to be addressed.”

So, what did you think of Nancy’s hope for deVry and Julexis on General Hospital? Would you like to see their on-screen love story continue? Comment below.

She looks fabulous !

Celia

She does, Kay.

And sounds VERYU lukewarm in her “endorsement of “Will.”
I think it sounds like he’s “toast.”

nancy dillingham

UH-OH! “Late breaking news–Julian staying in Port Charles.”
If true, Julian will be off canvas for a while–in jail. Scotty will get him out and it’s back to business for Julian and Alexis.
If true, time for my adieu.

Jimh

I dont care either way…i cant control what happens so if he stays, he stays and if he leaves, he leaves…i wont loose any sleep over it…next!

I really like Nancy Lee Grahn and I think she is a phenomenal actress. Alexis’s alcoholism storyline was told (and shown) in a slow moving way, showing progressing stages of the disease, and I think Nancy did a remarkable job of portraying how devastating addiction can be for both the addict, as a mother, and for the family. I don’t think that storyline would have worked with just any actress on the show. Maura West, yes, because she is phenomenal, as well. Others, not so much. I also love the friendship between Alexis and Diane. Two powerhouse actresses that always bring their “A-Game.” I never feel as though I am watching a juvenile actress when I am watching Nancy on-screen. I do feel that way when I am watching others in her age bracket act like juveniles screeching “Hell No!” and “Hell Yes!” and what appears to be ad-libbing their lines.

I have always been, and continue to be, a fan of Alexis and Julian. I think they have that “super couple” spark that the show has lacked in recent years. I have never really seen it between Maurice Benard and Laura Wright (it’s just my opinion). I know that it was there between Luke and Laura (before my time) and I believe that it was there between Sonny and Brenda (in the ’90’s, not recently). Oh, and Frisco and Felicia, too.

I think if TPTB took the time to write the story and have the characters find their way back to one another then it could potentially work. I am saying this because I am fan of the couple and of the actors, and I think they have incredible chemistry. I can’t say that about most other couples on the show.

Celia

Yes, dmr. I like Nancy, as well….I started liking Alexis; especially through her alcoholic “phase”. That acting was perfection. Why? It was true to life and emotional.
However, if Nancy has any pull with TPTB, she should protest any ‘reunion’ with Julian. Alexis apoears desperate when in his company. Can’t figure out the nervousness. Fear? Trying to control the urge to jump his bones? Distrust? Resentment? What?
Is she kidding? I am not ready for another over-the-hill love fest. He is still in his prime….
I would love to see Alexis in a sedate relationship….fool around in private, swing from the chandelier, if they must, but, not seen.
Loved the mystery about Mac and Felicia….we knew what they were doing; but did not see limbs ( barf) flailing all over the place. We were just regaled with a hint of their sex-life….keeping it fresh and spicy.
I think Alexis needs a modicum of self-respect. All Julian contributes in this relationship is the negative side of their definition of love.
Nancy’s interview and choice of words fits someone starting a new relationship without baggage.
It is too late. Some viewers should not be expected to forget how Julian treated her. Some viewers are ok with their continued, bizarre relationship. I just cannot come to grips with it….everytime I see them together, I have visions of ( instinctively) the hand-with-the-knife ready to slit Alexis’ throat. And, if I hear that lame excuse again that the devil “made me do it”, I will scream!!!!
How could she ever trust him again?
Alexis is better than that, writers!!!!!
I really do not care if Will stays or not. I think he’s hot….not a good enough reason to stay. I know, I know, a shallow statement. He is a good actor, better than many. But, as Isaid….Julian is ‘cooked’….eternally looked upon as a venomous snake.
His heart and brain need a make-over, sans Alexis. And, she needs a man who gives her life balance.

Patrick

“I” can overlook the misdeed and or mishandling of character assassination(s)

oy! at the happenstance of being tarred and feathered.

“…I have visions of ( instinctively) the hand-with-the-knife ready to slit Alexis’ throat.”

I get this… I truly do… it’s such a mixed percentage of who cannot see these two reconciling and how the writers MUST be true to form. Julian MUST pay for his deeds.

1. I’m just happy to see another couple.. who’s worth watching, because it’s a distraction from the dullard. Sonny/ Carly – Jason /Sam – Michael / Nelle
Franco / Finn.

I’ve grown weary of the back and forth between these two.. and have not seen Alexis… outside of her drinking… ( which I so agree is emmy material ) has not shown any signs of “breaking” and or showing any colors. .

what self respecting person stays in a relationship.. that we’ve all bore witness. it was gut punch scenes(s) played out that should NEVER have happened. why couldn’t it have been Sonny

I am so in the moment when it comes to watching @GH or @DAYS. reason I love coming to this site to help me spell out history and heck rationale. correct my thought process?

I’m coming from the perspective that I’m just glad that William DeVry is back. I’ve always made it clear that I do not care that much for NLG Alexis. because she is so rigid… its her way or the highway. i’d have given up.

“Alexis apoears desperate when in his company. Can’t figure out the nervousness. Fear? Trying to control the urge to jump his bones? Distrust? Resentment? What? ”

I’ve always thought… that if she could have just accepted his lifestyle.. this would all be for naught.

does any one think that a middle aged woman by now would have ?

what is the point here ? LOL wow

perhaps if NLG Alexis would do away with her Cleopatra eye makeup I would be more tolerant. if she’d just share some shade… some color ( fun ) let her guard down.

like her alcoholic storyline… I think there is definitely more storyline in NLG Alexis.

i’m flummoxed on what these two will be

dag! that scenes with Big Mac and My lady Felicia … LOL absolutely this couple no matter how you REEL them… RADIANT. with that one scene you can see how alive they are together. the best

Celia

@Patrick.
My friend, the poet….you say it best.
All I can say, in a nutshell…..’tis not ageism, but comportment. It seems that, again, our opinion has no voice to one person of many names, both male and female …….our opinion is cut off at the knees—my opinion is this: Alexis is too old to wear the vestments and shoes of an adolescent with raging hormones. If this makes me an ageist, sobeit. The obsession is the infatuation with a soap character. It’s that simple.
Nancy does not pen her own script. She does not act this way in real life; for sure. LOL.
I do think Alexis is passed middle age….Scientifically, middle age is between 35 and 50, or so…58 marks old age….that’s my point. There is no shame in aging. Just stating a fact.
She will be resplendent without Julian. Lots of life left. This loveless lust will destroy her. It is not love—it’s an affliction. I have never seen these two share ‘sweet nothings’, holding hands, loving smiles…..just hungry looks and hungry flesh.
Oh, brother, Patrick—-the same old song is circulating. Such ennui. Tse-Tse fly. LOL.
Well, will not be “seeing ” you for a while…..
Keep on trekkin’…..

Jan Onofrio

YES. AND YES. To make Julian sympathetic was the hat trick and I thought they did it beautifully. They’re a great and interesting couple with lots of sizzle and they’re a pleasure to watch.

Buddy Lee

I absolutely adore Nancy Lee, both as Alexis and Herself… R.C. sorta wrote Julexis into a corner before leaving, as he did with the great Genie Francis, OUR Laura!!!
I am thinking the new Writing team is wanting to make Kevin and Laura sizzle, as Julexis did when they were good together… Which is fantastic for many of Us, who absolutely adore Genie Francis!!!
All that said, TPTB KNOW they have two older Couples that WE Love: KevLaur and Julexis, and even though William is wanting more money to stay, my guess is they will reach some sort of agreement to keep him on the canvas…

Sus

Love KevLaur…. DESPISE Julexis. Not sure how you can even compare the two. Alexis is a battered, and beaten alcoholic… with a man who is a murderer and thug from LONG ago. This behavior of his with Alexis is not aberrant! The man and his family tortured Duke and Anna. Alexis looks an idiot for being with that looser. I am so sick of the supposedly intelligent women who loose 100 IQ points when they are in the midst of a semi attractive bad guy. It’s so insulting to females everywhere! Now KevLaur… agree.. Jon and Genie are making that couple, relatable, something to truly fantasize about (having a good man, doctor that adores you), set good examples for the children in their care…. and Genie Francis can kick a$$ and take names if they actually give her material to work with. I think Jon can hold on their too because when they actually gave him story long ago he nailed it. I’d be happy for Julian to go, Alexis to get SERIOUS therapy from Kevin, (Its so time for GH to address this stuff in a more realistic socially responsible fashion) and more KevLaur on my screen! Give Jon the darn contract!!!

nancy dillingham

Sus, you make a good case–I’m with you!

Celia

It does the heart and mind good to see someone else ( among Shay and others) see what I see. Laura and Kevin make the sweetest, mature couple, ever. I love them together. I realize this sounds as the infinite cliche’, but, they complement each other.
And, there’s the rub….the difference between this ‘honest’ love to the tempestuous one between Alexis and Julian.
This kind of ‘rebellious’ carnal ‘outrage’ is elusive….will not last…jyst like a tornado–it passes; leaving destruction in its wake.
Thank you, Sus, for sharing your view and noting the difference.
Laura is a queen—we see how much they love and respect each other—sharp contrast to Alex and Julian.

Rhonda

I thought everyone and their mother loved Laura and Kevin, you aren’t in the minority at all!
I wish TPTB would listen to us and give us more Kevin and Laura and less Sonny and Carly.

Shay

Amen, Sus! I always thought the cardinal sin according to feminism was allowing a man to treat you like his own personal doormat, yet apparently the ardent Alexis apologists seem to have no problem whatsoever with Julian doing just that to their “beloved” character! As long as those two perpetual adolescents get back together to resume their twisted union which is quite clearly nothing more than a mutually-shared sexual-obsession of two sick puppies answering nature’s unending mating call, why then everything will be fine and dandy for these “thrilled” Julexis junkies. On the polar-opposite side, we have finally witnessed a real GH love worth rooting for between the wise and seasoned sweethearts, Laura and Kevin, which is foremost based upon mutual respect, kindness and true affection…a healthy coupling of two mature individuals who value and treasure each other as people first…so refreshing to see after the absolutely appalling depiction of what supposedly constitutes romance amongst the over-50 set in Port Charles ala Alexis and Julian.

Rebecca1

Hi Buddy Lee. Yes; agree. It would be fantastic to see more Kevin and Laura. I don’t know why we don’t; not sure if it’s the actors choice or they’re just not being written for. Still, something is lacking in this couple for me. Each time they’re on they’re having problems. There’s as of yet nothing light about this couple; we never see them in a fun, romantic sense. They’re too bland, though admittedly warm and fuzzy. I really think the writers have to give this couple more to do than solve Laura’s problems.

Alexis and Julian DID have incredible chemistry…from wit and passion to confiding in each other their respective pasts…their faith in each other which was made it so devastating to see Julian’s (seeming) betrayal…the throes of new love/attraction/passion…and just when they were finally settling into a toned-down family life the writers blew them apart.

The camps are divided. There are those of us who believe that Julian was putting on a show to convince Olivia J he was going along with her plan (though wouldn’t have literally killed Alexis…how many times in the soap universe are characters able to fake deaths…I’d like to think that’s what would have happened until Julian was able to elminate the threat), and those who feel his turn-around is not fixable.

I’m rooting for this couple. Great chemistry. I’d like to see them get back together down the line…after Alexis and viewers are convinced of his good intent taken too far and gone too dangerously awry. If they can’t do that…I’d like to see them both move on but stay vital to the canvas. Either way, very happy to see DeVry has worked out his deal and is staying.

Karen Clark

I think Julian has destroyed Alexis. She was always emotionally unintelligent but the rest of her life functioned well. Now, she is a shell of her former self and I don’t like watching her story.

Celia

Yeeesss!!!!! Exactly, my point, Karen.

su0000

When Alexis and Julian started they were exciting and hot..
I liked watching them. they were fire.
then the writers had need to crap them and they became a chore to watch, what a shame.

I don’t see them ever recapturing the way they were 🙁

nancy dillingham

Nor I, Su. 🙁 🙁

Rodd

I think ‘addicted’ is a good word to use for them together. Good to know she’s onboard with him hopefully coming back. It makes it so much easier when two actors want to work with each other.

Shay

I prefer the word “disgusting,” Rodd! No self-respecting female would accept the behavior of a man who did what Julian did, no matter how the writers try to sugarcoat it!!! It’s obvious why Alexis is so addicted to this loser….who else would want her? She’s a washed-up alcoholic legal hack who has seen far better days…and she’s no spring-chicken either, no matter the efforts to spruce up her veneer. Julian, on the other hand, should have no problem finding plenty of playmates…if Sonny Corinthos can keep on pulling (and too often impregnating) chicks at this juncture in his life, then the extremely fit Jerome should only logically have his share of adoring female company, as well. It never made any sense to trap Julian in that Alexis vacuum, and it’s even less so now…free Julian and let him wrest the crown of “Port Charles Love King” from Sonny!

JMER

I cannot believe how completely anti-women this comment and mindset is. Perhaps you know it already but wanted to make sure someone said it.

Rebecca1

I say it all the time, JMER. Read the few posts below as well. It’s constant…that’s what I’ve been sayin’.

Shay

On the contrary, JMER, my comments are anti-Alexis, who to me is totally anti-woman…she’s completely lacking in dignity, decorum, decency and basic self-esteem, which sets an extremely bad example for females young and old! That’s why I cannot abide the notion that this character—and, by extension, her portrayer—are celebrated by some as apparent icons of femme ideals….There are numerous other members of the fairer sex on the GH canvas that I revere and respect, and would never dream of regarding in the same manner as I do Alexis. If you refuse to recognize the difference between them and this weak, deplorable creature, then that’s your prerogative, but judging by numerous other posters on this website, I’d have to say that this character resonates in a similar fashion amongst many other high-minded women who are just as appalled by her as I am.

Timmm

There are Alexis’s that exist in the real world and the same can be said about them. Why all the anger based on the truth of the character. Not everyone wins!

Scoma60

Nope. I can not un-see what happened Julian manhandling her, fantasized drowning her, set her up to go down for his crimes & tried to slit his throat.
If they had given him a medical reason like a tumor or DID then I could see it rebuilt. Saying my middle aged chubby sister made me do it ? Nope
Also, GH needs to rebuild Alexis. She’s a dishrag now. Where is that fierce independent feminist who fought against her daughter’s batterer ? She should be white hot with rage that this man destroyed her life & she allowed it to continue long after the acts. Instead she’s behaving like a quivering spineless damsel. Lock into that anger and enter therapy to uncover why you make such bad decisions about men & why you’ve allowed yourself to backslide with your abuser.

SZ

I have never cared for “Julexis,” so I have no interest whether DeVry signs or not. I’m sure NLG wants him back just so she has something other to do than nag at her “daughters” but Julian, just like Sonny, needs to go for all the shit he’s pulled.

tony

NLG know she has no story if he doesn’t come back; it’s hard for magic to strike twice or at least it takes a long while and given her demographic the power that be won’t work too hard to come up with a new A story. Also, the her story with Julian has been overplayed to death. How about retire both characters and use money to pay Genie to be on three days a week and give her a story.

Shay

Exactly, tony! The funds you mentioned could have been far better allocated to more universally-appealing stories and popular legacy characters that we are clamoring to see instead of this juvenile fantasy of a so-called “supercouple”…..the unconvincing machinations it will take to try to reverse this dead-end story are a total waste of time and effort that should most definitely be directed elsewhere instead of reviving this trite tale of two over-sexed middle-agers who never grew up.

nancy dillingham

Hey Tony,
“Use money to pay Genie . . .”–right on!

Boop

I want William to stay.

Rebecca1

Nancy looks great; she’s rockin’ her thinner self!

Direct, to the point as always …actors negotiations ARE their business ( literally and figuratively). No way of knowing who’s asking for an unreasonable deal in the current genre budget, who got a raise, etc.

I liked and agree with her assessment of Alexis and Julian. A deep love/ bond that was horrifically dismantled. It’s also interesting as she notes that Alexis, too, came from a violent, dysfunctional family. Yet, she rose above. Pethaps that’s shy she’s tried to save Julian from the path he chose, yet saw the man he could be. Was. Until…the fall. I do hope DeVry stays and they find their way back. And then there’s Molly and Kristina… But, hey, if Michael could accept Sonny…

Great news that Alexis is here to stay.

rose

Rebecca…And now deVry has signed up again. Yea! I too found Nancy’s comment interesting about them both coming from violent families. And, broad brush cliche, girls/women always seem to want to try to “fix” things. Kinda makes you wonder who would win between the Cassadines and Jeromes. I would put my money on the Cassadines. They are more devious. So would like to see if this could work out between them.

Rebecca1

Hi Rose…

Yes! I was genuinely thrilled when I heard the deal was struck! (As much as one can be “thrilled” over a soap character. 😉 ) But, as you know I really love “Julian” and I love the way DeVry plays him. He’s just so understated and yet so intense. Magnetic…

Ha…the Cassadines vs the Jeromes? Might be interesting if it were specifically the crazies of the bunch…Olivia vs Helena? Olivia vs Stavros? Those would be quite the diabolical match…throw Faison into the loop and…

“Poldark” and “Outlanders” can’t be soon enough!

Rhonda

Love NLG, and I used to like Alexis but for the love of God, can she grow up?
She should have out grown her fondness for bad boys about twenty-five years ago. Remember when she was set up with Mac? Despite being a lovable, handsome hunk of a man, she found his goodness to be boring.
I also don’t see how they can reunite. If they do, someone needs to address the fact that Alexis suffers from battered woman syndrome.
The problem as I see it is Sonny. He killed AJ in cold blood and has committed countless atrocities and yet he is still Carly’s guy and he is still the misunderstood hero of GH. I think all problems with character writing go back to Sonny. He is the missing link in more ways than one.

Rebecca1
Hi Rhonda Nancy’s great. Love her views on most things. As for Alexis, I still like her. A lot. In the midst of everything she’s gone through she’s still such an involved mom; I love her interaction with her daughters; she’s somehow managed to take back her life, conquer alcohol, get back her law license. I’m still not sure I’d call her an “alcoholic”…as far as I can recall she never had a problem with alcohol but rather turned to it during this crisis in her life. I’m not quite sure if a one-time short period in a person’s life during a crisis would be considered such…although they displayed the same symptoms during the crisis. But I digress. There are quite a few women on GH who have a “fondness for bad boys.” Carly, Olivia (pre-Ned), Diane, Sam, Tracy. At least Alexis has an excuse! LOL…she witnessed her mother’s murder, was emotionally battered by Helena and Stavros for much of her adult life… Seems like the several “bad boy” types she chose she tried to change over to the good side. Sean, who she seemed to like, but then broke up with when he said he was going to work with Sonny, she broke up with Jerry Jax after learning his true identity…Julian? She only decided to be with him after he promised to leave the mob. I think she broke up with him a few times and only went back after she was convinced he had left the life. I do remember when her daughters tried to fix her up with Mac but I don’t remember it well. Could be wrong but I think she resisted at first..but then when she was interested it was too late? Not sure if I’m remembering that correctly. (I always loved Mac!). She also loved Ned but left him the night before they were about to be married. I think they always attributed her commitment issues to her mother’s death and the emotional trauma that brought her. Still, she’s always been a great character. She’s never been a man’s doormat or played victim. She went up against her sister’s (unintentional) murderer, she saw Kristina through her battering, she forgave Sam for sleeping with Ric, she overcame lung cancer… I think the complete collapse of Alexis was because she FINALLY let her guard down and loved so deeply…she FINALLY thought she’d found something lasting…and she was crushed in every way imaginable. But I also think if you loved someone so deeply and you found out they’d never stopped loving you, that it was all an act…(yes, undeniably carried out horrifically)…that your emotions might battle with your intellect. I don’t think any viewer would want them back together if they truly believed Julian would have gone through with killing her or had physically hurt her… We all know it’s a stretch. And I (and probably most) would not disagree that no one wants to glorify a woman (or man) going back to an abusive relationship.… Read more »
Sandra Hastings

I will be very disappointed to see Julian ( William seVry ) leave. I want them to get back together and be happy. Why can’t someone be happy.

Patrick

Hers went swimmingly. How gratifying, no? If I NEVER see a scene with her and Sam. They are so grating together. If negotiations are that behind closed doors. We didn’t need to hear from NLG. You are swimmingly back in the upper echelon as it were, had it not been for William DeVry. Gramma Alexis, get used to i

Shay

Haha, Patrick! You hit the nail on the head here…”Gramma Alexis” indeed!!!! That’s the fact, Jack, and no amount of lipo, plastic surgery, botox or inappropriate sex scenes can change that particular truth….we are talking about a diminishing demographic of women of a certain age whose glee at watching one of their own getting her yayas is hardly enough to sustain this ridiculous character without her holding on for dear life to a much younger and sexier leading man. As such, I hope if Jules is in Port Charles to stay, he latches on to a younger, more nubile chippy to keep him happy. Now THAT would be satisfying to see!

rose

Patrick…We have several “Grammas” besides Alexis…Laura, Bobbie, Olivia, Monica, Felicia. Even Leisl if you factor in step-Grammas. Each has their own way of filling this role, and still trying to be their own person and have a life. Not always easy.

Rebecca1

Hey Rose…I think we just have to let the ageist comments slide. Some people on this site have an obvious problem and are obsessed with repetitive comments that are at this point amusing…and utter nonsense. Let it go….

This ain’t nutthin’! Have you ever seen people go at it on FB or just general news stories? In the comments sections? The way people attack people? You really get a sense of “what’s out there” among us.

Rebecca1

Oh…and, Rose? You don’t have to defend “grammas” and explain anything. Either Alexis, this beautiful woman regardless of age…be she 30 or 60…will get back with Julian…be he ten years younger or older and that will be that. And it will be based on their feelings, their history and what they can or can’t overcome. Any discussion which is as ludicrous as the one above you is worth ignoring. Soooo worth ignoring! (oh, and don’t you know the poster is ONLY talking about “character” not the fans of “a certain age” in a “diminishing demographic” who “get their ya-yas watching one of their own”…I’m sorry…who’s the rude, insulting one on this site? I forget…)

Later! 🙂

Celia

No way, rose (( I am not sure which rose you are? You said there were two of you, many pists ago?Cannot keep up with these one-sided conversations, LOL….not sure who anyone is any more….dual, triple personalities)) all the Grammies you mentioned know their place and act accordingly. No one is saying anything about having a life and living it. Mire power to them…..we will all be grandmothers, sooner or later. I just cannot imagine my grandmother, my mother, or myself ‘indulging’ where exposed??
I don’t know,…..I am sure there have been an infinite amount of children “surprising” their parents in the “act” by walking into the privacy of their bedrooms. That’s different, albeit there are locks for that reason.
I am fine with the display of affection. Yes, it’s a soap; therefore, the writers should have known better than to have Julian and Alexis engage in hanky-panky in a living room …. In a house without a foyer….right there, front and center as soon as one opens the front door.
Sam and Patrick walked right in. What if Emma or Danny were with them….too unrealistic for grandparents, parents, or anyone to be soooo carelessly carefree and irresponsible .Alexis wasn’t even mortified…..yeah, I know….reading a script.

Shay

Additionally, not only was that behavior both selfish and self-indulgent, it was totally irresponsible. Those two were supposed to be watching Danny and instead they were completely caught up in themselves and their moment of ecstasy…An active child of that age could have been up running around and burning down the penthouse whilst grandma and grandpa were burning up the carpet with their usual sexual shenanigans. They were actually worse than a distracted teenage babysitter who has her boyfriend over for a make-out session when she is left in charge of other people’s little ones….and equally as juvenile.

Celia

Hi, Shaybelle,
Absolutely, amica bella. ‘Tis about how a characer navigates through ‘mud’. Alexis gives women, in general, a bad name…..when with Julian. She shows weakness, immorality, lack of decency in dress and behavior, especially for a woman her age.
I had forgotten A and J did the did while sitting fir Danny? In their own daughter’s house????. Oh, yes, all young mothers should follow in their mothers’ exemplar stead.
I did not know Alexis, pre-Julian, but from what I have seen, even her own daughters have more sense and decorum than she does.
I shant be around for a bit…..I wanted to bid you, adieu—- and to my other poster-friends.
Just remember: we have a real chimera on the GH site…..returned in full-swing. The many faces of…..??
Oh, check out Michael Fairman’s music on UTube—-soooo goodd!!!!! You know I truly am into all genres ( yes, even Verdi and Beethoven, my fave? Fur Elise, my specialty on pianoforte)—- you will enjoy it. Ciao, carina.

Celia

Correction: Did the deed, LOL.

Timmm

Goodbye sweet C!

Shay

@CeeCeeGirl…Wishing you a happy—but brief!—hiatus from MFSoaps! It simply isn’t the same here without your insightful and intelligent posts! Take care and have fun, mia amica, but please come back soon!

Steve

Friday’s episode seemed like a nice wrap-up if that’s where they end it with Alexis & Julian. He’s probably off to Pentonville. Will he return, or never be seen again like Steven Lars and Matt Hunter?

JK

IF JULIAN MUST GO ,PLEASE TAKE ALEXIS AND HER WHOLE FAMILY WITH TO PENTONVILLE…….

dmr

At least take Kiki and Kristina, please?

aria

hey let william leave, put her with Michael Easton, who by the way is closer to her age then he is to Rebecca, just saying, bring Rebecca back anyways and let william Devry go bye bye.

Ashley Booth

I love Nancy She’s straight and to the point ,she’s right Will’s contract negotiations are none of anyone else’s business but his and the shows big wigs.

I totally respect her big time for saying it, leave that kind of thing to those involved.

Everyone else needs to keep their noses out of it, it doesn’t concern us.

Besides that I love Will he’s a great actor and I love him and Nancy and they brilliant way they play Julexis.

Sus

I am sorry the relationship makes Alexis look like  a fool and the worst mother of 3 girls ever. I am so sick of all the women in Port Charles being written as they are cognitively impaired . Throwing their kids under a bus to sleep with a gangster. Not relatable and pathetic. And the law breakers never paying a price and the murderous thugs always getting the girl is beyond lazy story telling. General Hospital is not even a mere shadow of what it once was. Sorry Mr. D Vry isn’t even that good an actor. His emotional range is quite small. I can’t believe THIS is what the show has chosen to invest in. The character of Julian Jerome was a trashed evil doer from long ago.  To bring him back as a romantic lead is bizarre…and offensive to the long term fans who were/ are invested in Anna, and or Anna & Duke. The glorification of violent men at the expense of supposed intelligent women is what has GH in the trash heap. How lazy can you be with regard to story telling if you can’t even go with basic crime and punishment rules. It would be on thing if this was a one shot deal to save something magical.. but this is an every day occurrence. Constantly propping the evil men, who never pay, always get the girl, are violent… there is enough of that crap in real life. This is so NOT my fantasy TV! Shows how bad GH really is if this is what so many are holding on to as good entertainment.

Celia

Yeah, Sus. The only one who loves this catastrophic, and cataclysmic couple plays the role of many, by sending messages back and forth to himself/herself. Vicious circle.
Love your post….well expressed; so much better than I could have said it.

nancy dillingham

Her re-negotiations went “swimmingly.” Makes me wonder what “Will” is asking for–the moon?

Timmm

Thank god or we would have heard her bitching forever! She is a miserable women!

Shay

LOL….Thank you, Sir Timmmbo!!!!! With those few words, you have nailed it!

Hi Rebecca…No worries. After a few years of the same old, same old, it’s now like “water off a ducks back.” Like I said about what I hope Alexis does, you just move on. Some are just stuck.

By the way ads on tv saying “Outlander” season to start Sept 10 (I think that’s the right date). Really looking forward to this.

Rebecca1

Oh…so am I! Can’t wait!

Rebecca1

oh…by the way, Rose…I hope you read my response to Steve clarifying the one-off accidental “Mark” post. I think I know who the other Mark is..but not sure. LOL! I have to admit that was funny; but frustrating! Meant every word I said, though!

😉

rose

Rebecca…I didn’t read it. Where do I look for it?

Francesca Bruno

I can see right through you. People are not stupid you know. I was not born yesterday.
I am on to you, Rebecca[Mark?]. You are trying to patch up your lies.
You are trying too hard. The only ‘person’ responding to you is your other personality, rose.
You need back up.

If this situation were not so disturbing, it would be laughable.
Tuck your tail between your legs and scurry along now.

Too much to hope for you to end it. Go ahead have the last word. It’s expected.

Rebecca1

Thank you Francesca. CeeCee’s grandmother? Sister? Who knows who you are. But, I wasn’t talking to you, was I? Stop trying to restart something. Don’t you have anything better to do than butt into a conversation and try to provoke more trouble? Grow up. Please.

Rebecca1

Hey Rose…

It’s the last comment I think at the bottom of the GH post on Women on the Verge…Laura, Ava, Sam… Something like that. I tried sending you and Harry a few posts but they didn’t “make the cut.”

Rebecca1

Hey Rose, got your message in my inbox. It didn’t post here. Glad you found it. I know your style and you know mine. I would assume the posters we’ve been friendly with here would know, too. I do think Francesca is CeeCee. Not her grams or sister like my first thought. But maybe…LOL. Getting off on “who is Rebecca, who is Rose…when in actuality it’s easy to decipher who “Francesca” is. All so silly and stupid in light of real world chaos and corruption…nutthin’ like a few Nazis and the POTUS not condemning them. My friends and I are playing American Idol and/or Survivor…wondering who will get voted off next. Bannon was extra points! Off to Breitbart he goes….

rose

Rebecca1…How do you get message’s in you inbox that don’t post? At least the Kennedy Center Awards won’t be disrupted by one who could cut off funding to the arts. Maybe he took a lesson from the VP visit to “Hamilton”? Actually Bannon must be breathing a sigh of freedom since he can now do/say what he wants, and run his own regressive show without the “general” and others trying to keep him in line.

Lucille Ramella

It’s a no brainer, of course Julexis should reunite!!! The writers struck gold when they paired these amazing actors together, I can’t wait until they are reunited!! Their chemistry is off the charts in every scene they are in together!!! Love, love, love them I can’t stress that enough!!!

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.

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.”

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.

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.

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.
