WHERE – is ALL this – good – NEWS

coming from ?

two of my favorite “ladies”

for reals ?

Britta and Theresa @DAYS

ooh la la

Shay

Oh, Patrick, your delightfully priceless post made my Thanksgiving! Thank YOU! (Hope yours was a wonderful one!….) I briefly alluded to that same Ava scene on another thread, but with nowhere near the joyful relish (No, not Pickle-Lila…) and spot-on observations as you have!!! Needless to say, I enjoyed Ava’s gutsy tongue-lashing as much as you apparently did! It’s always a huge treat when Alexis is given a proper comeuppance for her condescending attitude and haughty behavior and Ms. Jerome proved the perfect woman to do exactly that!…(Why, yes, the “sponsor” line was just toooo much fun, as was all you so skillfully stated about Alexis….she is quite simply an absolute mess who cannot even carry a turkey on a platter without it turning into a three-alarm disaster….what a fitting metaphor for her life!!!!) Now she’ll be acting all coquettish and flustered with Dr. Bensch’s amorous advances, although it looks like they may be about to to “hit the carpet” ala Julexis? Hmmmm….will that delay her from making another beeline to Julian’s jailcell door ????? (Me thinks probably not….even if she momentarily “succumbs” to a sexed-up session with “Dr. Feelgood,” she’ll still be primed and ready for a hasty return to her dagger-wielding ex!!!! That’s just the way that dame is wired, she like ’em baaaad!….To be continued….) Have a great holiday weekend, Patrick!

Jimh

Give me a B…give me an r…give me an itch!…..i have been craving me some Britch since the day she left…wish her return was for good but i will take a short stint-better than not appearing at all…i also need some Lisel…Mutter! Mutter!-where is my favorite Mutter?-lol

Jimh

OOPS!…i dont want someone to give me an itch-lol…

rebecca1

hahahahhaha…now THAT was funny, Jimh!

Francesca Bruno

This visit is out of the blue, Jimh. It is very possible that Britt heralds a visit from her father coinciding with Steve Burton’s arrival. Britt had turned a new leaf, so I hope this is a friendly visit?
You may get your wish if Liesl comes with her.

This sounds too neat. It is too much of a coincidence, which could mean Faison is part of the two Jasons’ identity switch.

Jimh

I wouldnt mind a Faison return too…another favorite of mine!!!

Shay

@Francesca….I believe that Faison and Dr. O. are quite probably up to their eyeballs in this “Q Twin Caper,” ala their links to Helena, and most likely, Victor Cassadine, too! Word was circulating that GH had recently attempted to “borrow” a contract player from another soap and that it was no dice…speculation was that the actor in question was Days’ Thaao Penghlis! (Of course, with Ron C. there, it was never going to happen….) If so, I am hugely disappointed because Victor was always a favorite of mine back from the “Ice Princess” days and he never really got his due as the most debonair and handsome of the brothers Cassadine…he definitely left me wanting more!

Shay

Absolutely, jimh! ‘Twill be the “Britch Who Saved Christmas!” Could there be a “Faison Family Holiday Reunion” in store for us, as well???? (Complete with musical selections from Liesl!!!!) We can certainly live in hope!!!!

Jimh

Lisel…dressed in a sexy Mrs. Claus outfit sings happily to her beloved Faison-“You’re a mean one, Ceaser Faison…you really are a heel…together we will plot our evil and make all of Port Charles squeal!…Ceaser Faison!…my dedication and love for you is…%100 reeaaallll!!!…..woud love an Ice Princess type plot for them-instead of freezing PC they invent a snow machine and plot to ruin the Christmas Holiday by dumping endless snow on all of PC!!!!!!!-lol

Jimh

Love..’The Britch Who Saved Christmas’…you come up with some of the best stuff…love reading your comments!!!

Celia

Ahh, Shay….we had a long, heart to heart conversation without doubting the singularly stealthy hand of Helena, the Matriarch of all that is evil…
…..without debating the fact that a Cassadine, in whatever form, had her/his well-manicured, albeit tainted, sinful hands in this imbroglio……way back when.
Actually, when Six first came into sight, I thought it was Nikolas….he may still be, LOL.
Satan said he was accosted by Helena in Hell….but he did date twin Saccubi—perhaps Helena transforms herself …….Saccubi are wont to do that; ’tis an art??…en pareil with ‘Chimere’.
I am sure Francesca can tell you, it is the plural form of Chimera ( fm. Pl.).
Victor Cassadine—Thaoo; so charming!!! Are you familiar with Tony and Andre DiMera. He can grace and cross the ‘threshold’ of PC, anytime.
You and I never believed he died….. Ahhhh, the Cassadines!!!! Those indomitable, pernicious Cassadines!!!! They are self-combustible; at will……they have a knack for pulverizing their ‘entity’ into thin air–poof….oopsies: now you see them; now you don’t.
And, who is to say Nikolas is not part of this? Watch him appear out of that same thin air….
Let’s not forget Valentin…
So, I tend to agree with Francesca when she says Britta’s appearance is an introduction to her father, possibly her mother and the ‘Cassy Gang’.

Shay
@CeeCee….Why, yes! We have engaged in quite a number of delightful discussions and sneaking suspicions regarding the regally evil Helena and her ever-imaginative antics that make so much go amiss in Port Charles….and what a cornucopia of food for thought that has been!!! Whilst I continue to hold out hope that we have not yet seen the last of this diabolically delicious diva and that she is still either simply lying low or being held in suspended animation awaiting another resurrection, if she is well and truly gone from this mortal coil, then she has left her crafty handiwork to a new contingent of Cassadines, you can be sure!!! Whether that list includes a haughty offspring in the glacially-patrician Cassandra remains to be seen, but what a promising notion that is! Just consider that if this newest cool blonde villainess is Helena’s progeny and say, the also daughter of Caesar Faison, how much fun would that be???? First, it would mean she is Britt’s half-sister and secondly, this would give her an undoubted history with the one and only Dr. O.!!!! Something tells me that Cassandra has some definite links to the lethal Liesl, and here was my first inkling: I don’t know if you caught this, but when she was discussing ice-skaters with Charlotte, she chose the rather perplexing choice of Anett Potzsch, who was the East German who won Olympic gold in 1980, right before Katarina Witt assumed her mantle as the ice world’s favorite “Iron Curtain Maiden”…(These two were even briefly related when the former married Witt’s brother, but that’s neither here nor there….) Anyway, it struck me as really strange that Cassandra would have made such an obscure reference when so many other more recent skating stars would have more suitably sufficed. Was this a sly clue to her own background???? Only a huge fan of the sport who’s well-versed in the international champions of the past would have noticed this, but it made me wonder if the reason was to give us a hint that Cassandra had spent at least some of her childhood in that formerly communist country in Europe, which would have probably provided her with access to Obrecht. Just a sneaking suspicion there….maybe she was even left in Liesl’s care if Helena had to keep the existence of her child a secret???? Hmmmm…..At any rate, I am extremely familiar with Tony and Andre DiMera….After adoring Thaao Penghlis during his all-too-brief GH stint, I followed him to Days, even though I eventually left that soap behind me decades ago. However, he is indeed all you have stated and more….love, love “The Thaao” and so wish that his Victor would be the latest Cassadine to make a miraculous return to Port Chuck!!!! And speaking of that very subject, I am fully convinced that one day Prince Nicky will once again tread the GH canvas…I’ve never believed for a moment that he is actually dead…although I frankly must wonder if he were another part of… Read more »
Shay

Why thank you, jimh! Coming from “The Quipmaster” himself, that is high praise indeed! And a good laugh certainly never hurt anyone, that’s for sure! Having said that, I love your idea for an “Ice Princess Christmas!” Along with the Faison and Liesl scenario….if you think those two did Halloween justice with their kinky hijinks, can you just imagine how they would utterly slay the traditionally-accepted concepts of “Yuletide Cheer?” Bring it on….

Celia

Oh, WOW, Shay…..you raise some pretty phenomenal points and questions.
Yes, when Cassandra mentioned Annett Potzsch, I was, somewhat, taken aback……unless one is ‘drenched’ within that realm ( I am the product of a long line of dancers and skaters), one would completely miss the implication, per se.
There is, obviously, a link between her and the Cassadines…..and, I don’t just mean with Valentin.
Yes, this duo has a past–not ‘un affaire du coeur’, but ‘un affaire du corps’…..big difference, wouldn’t you say? LOL.
When you first suggested Cassandra as a-would-be, Helena’s daughter, the thought did give me pause….then, I realized there would be no blood connection between Valentin and Cassandra unless they shared the same father, Mikos ( sp). Am I correct?
So, if that is the case, Helena must have had an affair.
To think of Valentin and Cassandra not only sharing DNA but also the sheets is vile, LOL.
….love all your premises and possibilities, Shaybelle…..especially, our Britta.
Prince Nicky? Of course he will return—on his proud, white steed; armor and all…..all primed for Britt !! Ha!
Furthermore, your theory of Nik not being Nik is the most plausable explanation for his sudden change in behavior and countenance, the last few months before his tumble out the window to Nowhereland.
As you say, too many foreshadowing possibilities…..all thrown out there; purposely done or not….it is definitely food for thought.
I’d like to give the writers the benefit of the doubt and hope they have a scope, out there on the horizon, and not “fluke it up”, as our Timmmbo so playfully, but meaningfully stated.

Patrick

Hello Shay – HAD – to share

you had to LOVE Ava giving it to Alexis ..as Alexis tries to grandstand and loud over Ava

quipping to Ava that SHE get on the stick and call in her markers.. for Julian

LOL oh how Maura West delivers

Ava to Alexis at her doorstep : “Toughen Up … Handle your own problems. don’t you have a sponsor to figure things out”

it was priceless as Alexis gobSMACKED left hurriedly

ON that same eppi – oh I was livid with Sam… “sharing” with Steve Burton Jason’

on how Alexis will struggle for the rest of her life with drinking because of Julian.

I digress… Alexis is so stuck in her lack of.. and committing to any thing.. other than her virtue and high moral standard

I want to give her a good clean scrub of makeup … she doesn’t deserve to paint herself Cleopatra .. with heavy on the eyelid.

she’s tired and she knows it

James R. Poissant

Who cares? The Britch is back and that’s all that matters. Maybe we can see Felix and Brad in some scenes with her.

Donna

Yes! I’m very happy to see Britt back on General Hospital! I can’t wait to see what she’s up to and I hope she’ll be sticking around for a long time!

su0000

WHOOPIE!!
The “Britch” is back..
but– only for a short stay 🙁

looking forward to the Britch !!!!

hopein’ somehow they’ll keep her on, yah agree ?

Steve

Hopefully a short term visit from Anders Hove is in the works as well. Her return must have something to do with the Jason twins.

Harry

Good, I absolutely adore her. I just wish they’d keep her on longer.

Shay

Amen, Harry! Wouldn’t putting her in cahoots with Cassandra make for a fabulously formidable femme force for evil-doing in Port Charles? I just love when witchy women whip up trouble like so many once did back in the golden days of daytime and Britt definitely excelled at that with the help of her “Mutter Dearest!”. Once they tried to reform this naughty vixen and took away her big, bad bite, it was all downhill from there! Let’s hope the real “Britch” will indeed be back! (With her “Mad Daddy” in tow????”)

Timmm

I thought Cassandra should have been Helena risen! I realize she is way younger than the previous version but its a soap! Plus, the new Helena could claim to be the old Helena, she had “Work” down in that amazing lab of hers!

Shay

Oh no, Timmm! We need the current Helena to return to Port Charles to have a face-to-face with her suspected progeny!!! Cassandra and she would be the best mother-daughter combo from hell since Britt and Liesl’s familial link was revealedl!!!!

Lisa

Happy to see her back ,however short the visit.
Maybe she’s going to be Ava’s unethical surgeon !?

TERRY LEGGANS

SHES A OB GYN

rebecca1

That’s what I think also, Lisa. Wrote that in a comment that didn’t post. She asked Griffin, a neurosurgeon…why not a gyno? LOL! (perhaps she’s gained insight from her dad on how to work faces…) 😉

Lou piikes

I hope she is involved in the patient 6 storyline. Add in Obrecht and Faison to make it more intriguing.

Charday

Woo-hoo! Cannot wait! But why short-term? I want long-term Britt (and the mean/evil Britt). She was one of my favorite characters on GH of all time.

Timmm

Probably to busy to stay long term. I would hope if Nicholas ever returns that she would be brought back then.

Shay

Me, too, Charday!!! Those early days of Britt and her evil ways were utterly sublime soap viewing! And I’ll never forget that baby doll she so beautifully barbequed…I still get the giggles just thinking about that hideously charred molten piece of grotesqueness!

Rodd

Absolutely! I wish she was back full-time. There was so much left unresolved with her stories. Maybe Brad and Lucas will get some air time when she’s back. Here’s hoping.

Satan

Could it be that Britch has been running her daddy’s clinic in Russia for him, while he’s locked away in whatever Supermax prison Robert Scorpio put him in.

Assuming Faison hasn’t escaped yet… which we all know he will eventually. That bastard could probably escape Hell… actually he HAS, come to think of it.

Tony

Yes, can’t wait for Britt to come back she was one of my favorites!

Soaphound

Hope this means her BFF Brad will be getting some airtime, too. They’re a blast together.

Shay

Tell me about it, Soaphound! A tasty dishing sesh is definitely in order for Britt and her BFF Brad!

k/kay

This only tells me the writers have decided to go down the route of Faison maybe at this point they still probably don’t know never was interested in this actress.

jeremy

🙂 Oh My Gosh. Awesome, that she is back. We need a Crazy Britch 🙂

su0000

I think the Britch is back to—-
Give Maxie an abortion or talk her out of it..

((it within the line of her profession that she could abort a baby))

Shay

I would sincerely hope it is the latter….Maxie aborting her unborn child is hardly something that would enhance the current warm and fuzzy atmosphere that all these GH vets and their visits are bringing to Port Charles. In fact, I still get queasy just thinking about Lulu’s unfortunate procedure all those years ago…especially in light of her subsequent problems carrying a child to term.

Steve

After all the trouble she went through to have little Georgie, it’s highly unlikely Maxie would consider an abortion, especially being in a happy relationship.

gh'er

Britch vs Nelle.
Now that’s a story.

Darnell

Her parents are so deep in this but they ain’t the culprit. It has to be someone no one would suspect like Tracy Quartermaine. It could be a guest arc having it known that she left PC to deal with Patient Six but couldn’t bc everything else went so horribly wrong starting with Drew/Ava car incident. Tracy funded this experiment after being confronted by Faison on behalf of Helena which Tracy was not aware of. This was her way of finally getting ELQ solely as her baby. Let’s rock this GH!!!!! Everyone can guess Helena, Obrecht, Faison or even another Cassadine would be behind this. But no one would ever guess Tracy was knee deep in it. Okay, it could still be one of them as the head villain but having Tracy apart of it would be catastrophic.

Timmm

Tracy has mellowed over the years. I just dont think she would do this. And remember, her and Monica have gotten closer over the years.

Shay

Well, if we’re going to start pointing fingers at past Q’s, how about Edward since this plot apparently goes way back to GH’s heyday???? That crusty old coot always had his hands in something unsavory and perhaps he didn’t like the prospect of a grandson with a heart defect. Later on, he may have reconsidered and approved of the twin switch when it looked as though his “golden grandson,” Jason, had the prospect of being mentally-defective following his auto accident. That sounds exactly like something “Old Eddie” would have done and shamelessly so!

Steve

The only Q who would somewhat make sense being involved would be Ned. He was the last one to see Jason Quartermaine prior to him hopping into that ill-fated car ride with AJ. However, the show has spent a good deal of time establishing him as the moral compass of the Q clan.

The mastermind of this plot has to be someone that can fil new scenes. That leaves out John Ingle and Jane Elliott (who didn’t rule out a short-term return, but wouldn’t for a character asassination plot).

rebecca1

Talk about changing history! LOL…Tracy and Monica et al might have had their “scuffles” over the years but none were ever Cassadine-crazy diabolical. And…when all was said and done they loved each other.

I don’t think it would “rock GH.” I think it’d cause it to come tumbling down…

Your Rick-swap however I could possibly see…sorta. Well, compared to Tracy. But though Rick has been off the canvas for way too long, I still hold out hope he’ll return. Causing SUCH heartache for all concerned, including Sonny, would knock him right out of the ballpark before he stepped foot back on.

Darnell

P.S.- Just another scenario here but Rick Herst would be great being apart of this whole Jason swap. He could have anted Jason away from Sonny so he could finally be the #1 in Sonnys life. Jealousy makes you do crazy things.

Timmm

I thought the same but I was thinking Ric would have done this to F with Sonny and try and take over his territory. Rick Hearst signed to be on Dynasty so this wish is dead!

Timmm

I was never a fan of the Britch. HOWEVER, since she has gone, I miss her realtionship with Spencer and her BF, Brad. If Brad wasnt gay, those two would be great together! The other thing about Britt coming back, since she has left, we have had and still have a couple real annoying ladies on GH that really need to go and I would take Britt over these ladies any day! [I will be kind and not name them.]

Shay

I’ll do it so you don’t have to, Timmmbo! Nurse Amy, Nina and Alexis….just to name three! (Although, at the very least, there are a few more who deserve to be added to that list…)

Timmm

You opened the can of worms so lets fish!

My list:
Jordan
Amy
Chet
Nathan
Nina
Michael
Nelle
Finn

Celia

I thought Timmm liked Nina, Shay….
Say you do, T….LOL. C’mon…just say it, ” I like Nina”.

Celia

It is funny you should mention Brad, T. …..I truly miss him. None of the present hospital staff is worth his/her mettle compared to him.
He didn’t even have to speak…..his ‘tude was enough to strike the fanciful, humorous side of me……coupled with Britt? Well, what can I say?….. Farout ?

Shay

In response to your above reply at the top of the thread, CeeCeeGirl….I agree that there were some mighty interesting ruminations there regarding Cassandra, Helena, et al! I’m still mulling over that curious Potzsch reference…it came so out of left-field! There must be a clue in that or why wouldn’t one choose a more widely-known skater if it were merely idle chit-chat???? Hmmmm….Also, loving the supposition that Helena would have had to wander from Cassadine territory to spawn Cassandra…what a wily vixen she must have been to have gotten away with that under Mikkos’ tyrannical rule! Although the bio-daddy could always simply be a pool boy or a bodyguard, I’m hoping that it’s Cesar Faison…that would just be too much fun! We need to repopulate Port Charles with some really interesting femmes and what could be better than two crazy Faison sisters in Britt and Cassandra???? (Shades of Liesl and Magda!!!! Yes!) As for the other notions? I really do desire that they come to fruition, since as much as I am loving Steve Burton’s return, the introduction of Oscar’s mom and suggestion that “Drew” is his possible father truly don’t interest me…and the show was on such a roll with the “Two Jasons” storyline!!! Seems we are headed back to more “Sonnycentric” days all over again with this new Kim Nero person since her arc will involve Joss, Carly and “you know who” in all his dimpled glory!!!!

Shay

@CeeCee…Hopefully, I’ve been enough of a bad influence on Timmmbo that he’s adopted my own less than stellar opinion of Nina!!! As for “Britt&Brad???” They are quite simply “tres superbe!”

Celia

Nina is my goddess!!! ….so, mia bella, Shay; watch it!! LOL.
You are allowed to cut Alexis to shreds, as I agree with what you ‘preach’….but, only if she falls into the abyss, as she licks Julian’s, uhmm…heels. HaHa….Hope she snaps out of ’round 2′ merry-go-round. I like Alexis sans Julian….Nancy is great !!
Have you noticed how the ‘writing’ tries to make the viewer feel compassion for Julian?!?! “My devil sister made me do it”… and, oh, no….he did not kill ‘the love of my life, Duke’….RIGHT!!!! He only ordered ‘the kill’ while on safari.
I would advise Alexis to ignore the “prurito” and try to give it a go with Dr. Borscht?…whatever his name is.
I still think Timmm likes Nina since she was Phyllis….know why? Neither of us can stand nuPhyllis and we both wish Michelle would waltz back on the Y&R stage.
Now, then…..I, certainly do love the idea of Britt and Cassandra as half siblings…..
I do hope either can dig out a cauldron….what say you?
However, we do not know if Britt revert back to her wicked ways. Nonetheless, if she has been with her Daddy all this time, her essence must be struggling with its evil side and its good side.
And, oh, yeah….I am soooo indifferent to this Kim thing .
BTW….no worries about Thanksgiving…..I actually did not do much, but after spending all those hours with a passel of kids whose ages range from 6 months to 16 ( cousins galore) , I have yet to descend on earth.
Gotta run, amichetta mia.

Shay

@Timmm…In the words of The Partridge Family, “I’ll Meet You Halfway”….(Rest in Peace, Mr. David Cassidy….) Jordan, Amy, Nina and Nelle. But I do have a soft spot for Chet and Finn, and I have to admit that Michael looked quite fine this past week! For the first time, he seemed more grownup, not so much that perpetually wide-eyed innocent…great hair, too! (And since “Double C” loves Nathan, we have to keep him, too!)

Phyllis Fontaine DeMarco
Phyllis Fontaine DeMarco

remember the whale song by the Partridge Family- it is on Youtube-kind of strange but cool. Loved that show-glad he is no longer suffering. Have a soft spot for David, bigtime. I think now is the time the lady lawyer Sonny diddled a while back is due to return with his child, If not, he is remiss in cranking out another Corinthos. I’m sure we will have another day or week of Morgan Memorial Hospital soon. I really have been loving the show as of late-especially on edge waiting for Nelle to go total psycho-please!

Steve

Hopefully Kathleen Gati is done filming “Arrow” and comes back to GH soon. The Man Landers dribble would have been slightly more amusing if we got to see Mutah’s reaction.

Sue M.

Wicked Witch!!!!

brian

love this news and Kelly !!! Bring it on GH !!!

Rose

I wish britt would stay on gh love her and wish u would bring sabrina back they are my favorite ladies britt and sabrina rock

General Hospital

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.

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.
