Lisa LoCicero Signs New Contract With General Hospital! Are You Up for an Olivia & Sonny Pairing?

In this week’s Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now it reveals that General Hospital favorite, Lisa LoCicero (Olivia) has signed a new contract with the ABC soap opera.  LoCicero joined GH back in 2008.

LoCicero related to SOD about some initial concern about her current negotiations stating, “It was so funny because we were in contract negotiations at the time I got the call saying Olivia was going to get shot and I was like, “Uh, wait a minute  … (Laughs).  Of course, it has been planned for a long time but I still kept thinking, “Not a good time for a physical misfortune to befall your character (Laughs).”

So with LoCicero staying put in Port Charles and inking a new deal, and clearly the show intimating and moving towards a re-exploration of a romance between Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and Olivia, especially since they share a child together in Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), the question we pose to you GH fans is, are you up for an Olivia and Sonny pairing? Do you think they should end up together finally after all these years?  Clearly, with Connie soon out of the picture, or at least we think so (unless the show recasts),  with the upcoming departure of Kelly Sullivan, it paves the way for these two former lovebirds to try to find love and happiness with each other this time around in their lives! What are your thoughts on the matter? Let us know!

More FF for me, that the story of gh these days.

It’s late & I have been drinking. What is FF?

What is FF? If it means fast forward, that describes what I do to about 75% of the show these days.

These “headlines” bite some….. ie: No Connie… More Olivia….

and I get that…. she’s one of my girls’.

it just smarts – that GH and the production team… and that includes writing… couldn’t concieve how powerful a team they had.

it’s so obvious… ie: the lengths production will go to… for the tried and true (?).

Sonny and Carly.

I will say… Olivia is good at wrenching out all the stops and emotion with Dante… and I actually believe that she and Sonny will make a go of it… it’s all just missing something…. Connie.

Patrick
Patrick

ie: GH storytelling.

#1. Daniel Edward. – was that telling that Silas is telling Sam to find a bone barrow doner immediately. Franco to the rescue.

#2. Maxie dancing and singing/talking to “her” baby… that ws touching.. and emotional.

#3. Mac and Felicia are getting MARRIED. LOVE this couple.

——

so… for what GH is… I still find snippets of good.

Denise

It all depends on his Mob status which is why she did not let Sonny know that he did have a son but then she ate her words and hooked up with Zachara. This storyline should be interesting

Marie D

definetly want them together, Sonny the mob boss, and his son a cop, how much better can it get?

i have thought that pairing for a while now.would like it.glad she renewed her contract but real sorry about them letting kelly sullivan go.she is wonderful.somebody will grab her up in a hurry.maybe michelle stafford would like to come to general hospital

Patrick

i’m happy for Olivia…..

and it’s not her doing…

all these happenings… w/no Connie. I think most can tell – Connie – was my new leading lady.

this will all take some getting used to.

YES, YES, YES. It is about time-long overdue! I would love to see Sonny & Olivia together. And I have always hated that Sonny & Alexis just had that ONE night-long ago. That was it. And if I remember correctly Sonny & current Carly have only had ONE night together! (in a limo when Michael was in the coma) To me Laura Wright is the best Carly & she & Sonny never got any good love scenes & Alexis only got that one night! I LOVE SONNY!

Jared

Bring Megan Ward back. Miss LoCicero is so lovely and would make an excellent pairing for any of the leading men but Sonny. I just don’t like selfish Sonny. I never have. She and Spinelli would make a cute couple crime solving team with her visions and the Jackal’s Internet savvy.

Erika
Erika

Yeah. I’d be open to it. I love their vibe so far, and there’s Dante between them. They could explore their Bensonhurst history as teens, and stuff.

So, I’m okay with it.

OH GAWD — she’s SO frigging annoying with her crazy 10-cup a day caffeinenated personality. I wish she was leaving and Kelly Sullivan was staying.. FFwd worthy is right!!!

I agree.. when she is on screen she gets me worn out watching her hyper fits..
She comes off like a speed freak..
Really, she looks like she is a meth addict character..
She is way way way extreme jittery..
She needs to calm down and be in control of herself
It is hard to watch that character she needs a tranquilizer..

Barb

that’s how real new yawkas are, hyper and jittery

It’s about time sonny and Olivia get back together
I have wanted them together since Olivia’s first day
On the show, they have great chemistry together

Kat

Thank you! Olivia and Sonny have great chemistry and she can give him the loyalty he truly desires. I thought
we were headed for an all out love triangle before we all heard Megan Ward was leaving but now I think they’ll come together over her death or her death will be the angst between them.

Patrick

is this the first time on GH… that they’re showing Sonny and Olivia together?

Mary SF

I was wondering that myself since I am fairly new to GH, so recently I read the back story on another web site and yes this will be the first time GH will show the romance. She was involved with Johnny and Steve, but not Sonny, at least not since they were teens– off camera.

Shirley A Miller

No, Sonny and Olivia were together quite a while back. I liked them together but then something happened (I don’t remember to be honest), but I think Olivia left Sonny around the time he shot Dante. Anyone out there with full story, sure would love to hear it!!!!!!

Catherine Jydstrup
Catherine Jydstrup

This is 100% against Olivia’s character. If she was open to a life with an ongoing mob boss, she’d have stayed with him back in the day. Connie’s character was a MUCH better match for Sonny’s personality and lifestyle.

Lew S

Sorry, I don’t see tgw chemistry between those two. It is a shame they are letting Kelly Sullivan go. Now, there is story and a boat load of chemistry!

Patrick
Patrick

it was all in the eyes….

the way they looked at each other…..

she beamed… was radiant. what man wouldn’t Love that…

it was equal footing…. and the tenderness they emoted together…. and she would have been great as the in this together two some…. Sonny and Connie worked.

Mary SF

Well I am sucker for the old teenage sweethearts getting back together when they are older and wiser storyline- that is why I was such a fan of Vicky and Jake’s relationship on AW. So I am willing to give these two characters their second chance for romance.

Patrick
Patrick

Another World rememberance…

Awww….. Vicky and Jake.
my favorite was Joe and Paulina.
Loved Rachel… (victoria wyndham and Carl)

for soap couples… Another World had it in spades…. Cass and Frankie – The TOP.
Sharlene and John? dag he oozed handsome. and all this is just the tip of what Another World is. like DAYS… NBC epitomized supercouples. can’t forget Cindy and Grant… what everyone idealizes as FUN.

GHLover
GHLover

Ahhhh Another World!!! Lila and Cass… Vicky and Ryan…Jake and Paulina jumping im water 🙂 …Lorna!!! …Felicia and Lucas ….Omg guys you got me crying!! How i wish someone would revive this show

Patrick
Patrick

you know…. for every soap that’s been on the air….

for me….

#1. ATWT
#2. DAYS
#3 AW

Mary SF
Mary SF

The reason AW has been on my mind is because June 25th was the 14th anniversary of the last episode—-I can’t believe it has been that long— still can see Mac raising the wine glass in the final moment— oh well— just glad NBC didn’t follow through and cancel Days too, which they were about to back then— we wouldn’t be having all the fun stuff we are now enjoying if they did. But as AW Linda Dano said it best back in 99 when she said “My God! If you can get rid of Another World, you can get rid of anything”– and they did.

gloria

I loved AW & who remembers Bay City? Santa Barbara? Oh Santa Barbara was SO GOOD. I would love to see that in reruns on Soapnet. I miss all of our soaps that are gone.

Jovin

The NBC soaps were awesome. That block of Another World, Days, and Santa Barbara rocked!!

Kat

Yayness! I have been dying for an Olivia and Sonny pairing. If you weren’t touched by her risking her life to save Sonny then saying she would do anything for him when he asked her why, then I really don’t know what to say. As Sonny said, he won’t forget it, he was clearly deeply moved as well.

louisa

Ugh. But better than Sonny with Connie.

rebecca
rebecca

I love Lisa…I think she’s adorable…and her character is warm, vivacious and total Brooklyn! LOL…She adds a real touch of “family” to the show with her affection for her son and her loyalty to Connie. I’m very glad she’s staying on.

As for her with Sonny, yes, it’s obvious they were going in that direction but I thought it would be interesting to see how it effects Connie/Kate….would it split up the cousins? Would Connie/Kate break apart agan…seems like they’re missing a good storyline here unless they’re recasting. Which wouldn’t make sense since Kelly’s so good in the role and the three of them are very believable as the Brooklyn 3…

Patrick
Patrick

see.. you just hit on the nail… as some other have said as well…

GH could have delved so much further in to Olivia and Connie… I know it’s too late… but… i think livia is a hoot as well…. her Brooklyn past – fiery mammacita… so… it was touching and effective what she has… with Dante and Connie.

like what you said…it’s like GH is dropping the ball again… with so much potential.

Kelly is so good…. glad i can stand on my soap box with some agreeing.

Mary SF
Mary SF

I don’t think there could be a romance while Connie was still in the picture. Olivia loves her cousin too much to go after her man, and I don’t think Sonny would see Olivia in a different light as long as Connie was in the picture. After the two have been together they could have Connie come back and then explored all that stuff you mentioned, but not during the “falling in love” phase of the relationship. My guess is Connie will see Olivia likes Sonny and she will leave town to give Olivia her shot with Sonny after all these years.

No

They are running of women for Sonny and now they need to recycle the old ones..
They are a terrible couple..
The only way the character Olivia would be watchable would be if she never spoke ..

She needs to find some class, be more dignified, look more intelligent, and be calm and in control..
Now she is hyper dinngy ding character ……………..

Wendy

I love the idea of them together, and have since Dante came on the show. He needs one woman in his life, that isn’t entirely crazy (the LSD induced hallucinations aren’t here fault. LOL).

Patrick
Patrick

LOL… Livia certainly had a lot to deal with going on around her.

her LSD played out… and it’s still GOOD.

what with Connie’s alternate personality.
what with Steve’s mom… Heather wacko’ed out.

she’s had a lot of kooky going on … and she remained herself. I don’t know… I don’t see her in overdrive.

God… the LSD part certainly brought her around… dag! I thought her and Steve were so boring…. thankfully he’s gone… kinda like Daniel and Jenn on DAYs… Daniel could dissapear and I wouldn’t miss a beat.

I love the closeness of the Bensonhurst (*spelling) cousins. They work well together, hate to see Kelly Sullivan leaving.

Karen

Love Lisa as Olivia & Love me some Sonny! But would like for the story to be that their love to be a brother-sister love. I see no sexual chem between the two. If they are going to pair Sonny with someone new, then Ava has exactly what Sonny needs in a mate! She obviously can be his new Jason! “With Benefits”

su0000
su0000

Agree.. they have zero chem..
I can not picture them in hot passion or even a hot kiss, it just is not there..
A terrible couple..

All Sonny’s women end up in a very bad way, poor Olivia, no good comes from being with Sonny..

Mary SF

His new Jason, “with Benefits” LOL Karen- that’s too funny for words. Thanks for the laugh.

Ok… Pairing her with Sonny at this point is just out of character for Liv. Connie is like a sister to her and Liv is fiercely loyal. It would be a horrible thing for her to hook up with her cousins ex fiancée!!

Paula Kate Meserole

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love “Solivia.” Sonny and Olivia have so much history and a son together. This is the best thing I have heard in a very long time. Sonny and Olivia forever!!!!!!!!!

su0000

”’Solivia”’ ?
Reads like a Kindergartner who hasn’t mastered to speak correctly..
They have names.
Sonny and Olivia would be a terrible couple.
And her being with Sonny can be fatal, a good start to writing her out..

And being single and friends is a good thing too.

Paula Kate Meserole

Once again I love Solivia!

Now if GH could just “Bust the Britch” once and for all….that would be spectacular.

Dullivia is about as interesting as a can of Chef Boyardee. The arms flail, the mouth flaps, the eyes blink rapidly, and torrents of nonsense pour out of her ever-open mouth. She’s about as sexy as a roll of cookie dough and not quite that bright.

So she’s PERFECT FOR SONNY. Yup, they’ve finally found the perfect pairing. Just think of the time – and brain power – we’ll get to save by FF’d through both of them.

Nothin says Bensenhurst lovin’ like getting together with the guy who plugged your son in the chest. Now she can wait for him to shoot the grandchild and then she can comfort him about that too.

SHOW is a trainwreck.

One good thing – at least she’s NOT Franko or Kiki.

Jovin

If the fans want Olivia to meet a violent death in a mob shoot out or explosion, they should root for her to be with Sonny. Get Sonny Off the show already! Give us back our General Hospital!

I have been a long time viewer and was super excited that FV and RC were coming over to GH. In the beginning they rocked the show and turned it into something awesome to watch. All of the momentum and buildup to the 50th was well worth the return of the vets. Now certain characters have been further tarnished, banished, or written into a corner.

The show has lost all momentum from the 50th anniversary and shows no signs of improving. Every time a story gets interesting it gets sidetracked. There is no romance because no one has chemistry. Carly and Franco have potential because RH and LW had the potential as Todd and Carly. I have always been interested in an Olivia and Sonny pairing, but was wondering if they were going to go the Ava Jerome route. That would be interesting. Liz doesn’t work with AJ or Nicholas. Sabrina and Patrick are a bore, how many times does Molly have to jump between Rafe and TJ. Mac and Felicia are a joke. Anyone who knows the Frisco and Felicia love story does not buy that she would choose him over Frisco EVER.

I liked Olivia and Sonny together previously on GH, thought they had a lot of chemistry together. I guess the writers didn’t think so and broke them up. I am glad to see them getting back together ….. I feel as a couple they were more real than Connie/Kate and Sonny. So….. I am happy to see them give it another “go” …. until someone else comes along that the writers think has more appeal than Olivia. So let’s bring them on ….. Olivia and Sonny …… HOORAY!!!!!!

Phil

I won’t join the bandwagon of Olivia haters here! I am glad she signed back up with GH, but I do not want these two paired. I would LOVE the so called tired Sonny an Carly pairing! If Todd can’t come back, I don’t want her with anyone but Sonny! Olivia deserves an honest man… Someone new!

Barb

Great pairing. She accepts Sonny and doesn’ t try to change him like the other women do.

YES!!!! I love Sonny and Olivia together. I’ve waited four years for this pairing. They have tons of chemistry. They are my favorite couple.

General Hospital

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

GH Preview – Week of June 18, 2018

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

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

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