When Stafford welcomes deVry to her show, the twosome show up on camera in their favorite NHL team jerseys!  And as fans of both Will and Michelle know, these two daytime stalwarts are NHL hockey fans – William. who was raised in Montreal, is a huge Canadiens fans, while Stafford loves her L.A Kings.  And yes, the subject of hockey legend Wayne Gretzky does come up.

During the almost 45 minute talkfest, Michelle gives kudos to Will on how he has made the often despicable Julian, human, plus how great his performances have been along with his on-screen scene partner, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) have been during the recent implosion of Julexis.

William also takes some time to give Michelle props for bringing in comedic elements to her portrayal of Nina and combining it with the drama, Stafford is known to bringing to her roles.  In addition, in an interesting moment, Will opens up about his childhood during the epidode.

AAAhaa!
I liked it at 29 minute mark, the taking about Botox for men and women..

nancy dillingham

Must say, su0000, THAT conversation about how Botox just makes women “ugly” was really a great statement–made me think more of the actor for his honesty.
And, I loved it that Michelle said that “fans are so smart.” Rarely hear THAT one–how refreshing–and perceptive, if I may say so. 🙂

Haley

I really liked they talking about Julexis 🙂 him talking about payoff gives me hope for them. I love how they say that the love is still apparent between them

Sam

Ahh, I really liked them talking about julexis since they’re my favorite couple! ❤️❤️

Lauren

I love how he called Nancy really hot!!! So sweet

I love William he’s seems like such a nice and cool guy I love him and Alexis (even though their current storyline doesn’t make me happy)

Rebecca1

I DID enjoy was William when he was able to complete a thought. I liked what he had to say about aging, his opinion about the beauty and privilege of getting older…I was happy to hear he’s not one of these men who feel the necessity, or desire, to date women half his age.

I also liked how they both touched upon the relationship between Alexis and Julian…it validated what I’ve always thought about the characters…that they truly loved each other…not just physically passionate about each other. I DID appreciate Michelle’s analysis in this respect regarding this couple…how the usually more controlled Alexis was able to once again feel love and break out from her usually guarded self.

Michelle. It’s great to be light and fun but to hold THIS viewers attention I’d need more balance. If an interesting subject comes up…let there be conversation. A half hour of pure silliness and the words fuck and penis (in no particular order, LOL) is not exactly must see…podcast.

nancy dillingham

Kind of interesting to hear about William’s childhood–wish they had stuck with that one subject. I think it always fascinating to hear about the actors’ backgrounds–growing up, schooling, values, etc. Maybe even helps one to relate to the characters they play sometimes.

Timmm

I love BOTH of these actors. I hope they can redeem Julian and Nina finally finds her groove. My ONLY gripe about this podcast, and I mentioned it before, mike them on their lapels! It is so annoying having them hold microphones and the sound going in and out! It looks like the two of them were holding vibrators!

nancy dillingham

NO redemption, please (but inevitably there will be, of course!) I think deVry is resourceful enough to find another job, don’t you? Sounds like a very level-headed hard worker to me.

Timmm

I know Nancy, Julian is scum but PC is filled with scum and I like the actor! But you are right, he would land on his feet with a different job.

su0000

There is absolutely no doubt that Julian and Alexis will reunite, it is very obvious they will once again be together, sigh..
(( no woman in her right mind would go back to the man that wanted to murder her, but Alexis will .. LOL ))

Rebecca1

LOL..Sonny threatened to kill Carly and she married him, Nicolas tried to kill Hayden and she married (and fell in love with him AFTER she figured it out), Luke raped Laura and she married him…I’m sure there’s a few others that aren’t coming to mind. Add all that to daughters, mothers, brothers sleeping with the same people. So…leave my Alexis alone…;)

nancy dillingham

Unfortunately, you got that right, su0000! (Echoing your sigh!):(

What I DID enjoy was William when he was able to complete a thought. I liked what he had to say about aging, his opinion about the beauty and privilege of getting older…I was happy to hear he’s not one of these men who feel the necessity, or desire, to date women half his age.

To clarify…if William was allowed to get a word in to complete his thought! LOL

A-W-E-S-O-M-E INTERVIEW!!!!!!!!!!

tim

classic them talking about the #1 sport hockey and funny maurice bernard played for the la kings lol

jaybird369

As much as I enjoyed the interview, one gripe: More and more, why does Michelle feel the need to CONSTANTLY talk over her guests?!?!? It is BEYOND ANNOYING!!!!!

Just saying……….

Rebecca1

Oh my gawd! Yes! I said that both times I watched the clips here. There was one a few months ago. I said at the time i don’t know why she bothers having a guest. She’s all over the place. (Check out my comment above.)

jaybird369

Rebecca…E-X-A-C-T-L-Y!!!!! As far as I’m concerned, Michelle talks WAY TOO MUCH…PERIOD!!!!!

Have a good one, Rebecca.

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.”

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.
