General Hospital fans, and those of Julexis, have certainly let their voices be heard via the outpouring of support for one of their favorite gents on the soaps, William deVry (Julian).

Since word got out that contract negotiations had reached an impasse, between Will and the ABC daytime drama series during GH’s summer hiatus, fans have asked the actor directly via social media if he is staying with the show, or if had been rumored is true that he actually finished taping his last episode before the summer production break.

deVry today answered to inquiring minds on Twitter: “Guy’s. I just can’t comment now. Thanks for the love. Always the love. I heard #Julexis was on the other day?”

So, are you hoping Will is staying put in Port Charles? Do you think Julian is being written-off the canvas? Share your thoughts and hopes in the comment section below.

uh-oh…that doesn’t sound good. if he “heard” that Julexis was on the other day that means he’s not following the story…has tuned out.

He might be under orders via his contract to not announce his departure; otherwise fans may lose interest in even watching the last few weeks of his taping knowing the outcome.

Still, until we get the definitive word, I’m holding out hope. By a thread..but holding.

Gary

Are you still holding on? Have you been able to help at all with negotiations? Do you speak with the bigwigs and offer any assistance or story or budget ideas? I am sure you could be of service and put in charge of something or someone. Be with Alexis or even maybe be Alexis as an understudy and try on the clothes and if anything were to happen- oopsie- you would be Alexis for real and everything would be awesome.

Kevin

Make me cry laughing. All about Eve. Or Steve- we don’t really know. Makes you wonder. Why there is not a mental health line number attached to every page on here.

Samantha Whyte

STAY!!! Ugh I need him to stay!

Lucille Ramella

All us Julexis fans would agree Samantha!!!

Vicki

Amen. This couple is watchable and the 2 actors are amazing, If he leaves what does that mean for NLG. Scenery chewing and kid care? ABC is being ridiculous You sign SB to a deal show ED some money. Cut the lesser cast no one is watching.

Shay

@Vicki…If “he” leaves, I should expect we’ll see more typically shambolic conduct from Alexis….she’ll head back down to the wine cellar, then hit the streets of Port Charles in search of yet another criminal reprobate to warm her bed and, at least temporarily, feed her insatiable carnal appetite. In other words, just another day in the life of Alexis Davis!!!

Patrick

What can one say , Alexis

I look at her “make-up”

Her shade going Cleopatra and wince laugh out loud.

Seriously – this tightly wound up; virtue, RUN

She doesn’t deserve Julian

LOL

“…Reprobate to warm her bed”

wOW she’s a lucky character

She needs to start losing her cookies

Rissa

I hope Wil stays on GH. Julian is the only new character, and Julian & Alexis, the only new couple, I’ve loved on GH in YEARS. I don’t understand why GH would toss aside a good thing when they have it. I hope GH does the right thing and renews Wil’s contract.

Lucille Ramella

Well said Rissa!!!

Kevin C

I would love for William to be hired for Y&R, he would be a excellent love interest for Ashley/Eileen Davidson…I really like William and he and Eileen would be a HOT/SMOLDERING couple on Y&R.

jeanine girard

OMG! I was just going to post this same idea, Kevin!! Can they finally get a great match (and keep him) for Ashley?!!?
Lots of characters/actors I would gladly trade out to have Greg R back and WDV brought on board!

Kevin C

Great minds think alike Jeanine, lol…Have a great week.

dmr

YES, as long as the character was not a jerk, and was a romantic lead for Ashley. A character and a couple that viewers could really root for..

Kevin C

Totally agree dmr.

Timmm

Kevin, brilliant idea! Ashley needs a real man and Victor needs a new nemesis!

Kevin C

Thank you Timmm…Y&R really could use William DeVry and YES regarding Victor needs a new nemesis.

Celia

What a phenomenal idea, Kevin. Both gorgeous; both charismatic….perfect. They really would make the “it” couple soar. The soap needs to regain one of “those”.

Kevin C

Thank you Celia…I appreciate the comment…I so wish Y&R could snag William…

Patrick

After all the shenanigan pull. Pull stake and see him roar. He’s phenomenal. With Ashley. No other turn would pull. These two reach

Shay

This is true….these two soap vets would make an absolutely dynamic couple and I’m surmising that their Y&R storyline would feature more than just repeatedly rolling around on the floor and rutting???? Well, well, wouldn’t that would make a refreshing departure for Mr. DeVry….

Celia

You’re welcome, Kevin.
As much as I bristle at Julian……the character is all-kinds of a bad boy, it would be a real shame to lose such a versitile actor. I just object to a Julian-Alexis resurrection. I think they are explosive as a couple; and, not in a good way.
Besides, I really feel TPTB have turned William into a one-dimensional wuss, whose only objective seems to be Alexis. Not that I’d like to see him go back to his life of crime, but he needs to man-up and stop drooling every time he sees Alexis.
He is the full package, and so is Ashley. I would have never thought of it, but your brainstorming makes so much sense.
I can, actually, picture these two electrifying their scenes and the viewer, as I type…LOL.

Celia

Oops; I meant turned Julian into a wuss, not William. LOL.

Kevin C

Celia, I for so agree…I think they would be the hottest couple that Y&R has seen in years…

Maureen

Julexis. Julexis Army. I am not a fan of these combination names or spending hours on drives or petitions or calls to demand what I want on a tv show. But to each his own. It all comes down to money, and he wants more and is being coy to keep up the fan pressure on ABC. Good luck with that- it worked so well for AMC and OLTL. At least he did not get fired, like several other actors that I enjoy on GH and I know others do as well. And they keep adding to the mix with characters and stories that are not interesting to me. I am sick of the endless Morgan stories and drama and always Sonny and Carly -together-apart-sex with others-together forever til next month then reunited.

Shay

@Maureen….True supercouples are a thing of the past, and whatever passes for them today is a pale imitation of the real thing…too instant, superficial and often, ridiculous! How anyone can get so invested in them is beyond me…especially, when as you say, soaps now all come down to business these days…the almighty dollar is king, and fanbases, no matter how passionate and incitable, really don’t mean that much in the scheme of things anymore. When you consider that fact, it hardly seems worth getting in a almighty lather over whom is bedding what character, because in the end, we already know that there will be no such concept as “happily ever after” employed since these pairings are more transient than ever in modern soapdom…okay, except for Sonny and Carly, although their ongoing (and ongoing….) saga’s particular form of “soulmatery” certainly would not make for most people’s definition of a “storybook romance!” LOL…..

dmr

Maureen and Shay, you both are absolutely right!
Maureen, I am sick and tired of “The Moron Hour.” I have said it before, and I will say it again, the kid was a petulant, spoiled brat, and I never liked him and do not miss him! I am also sick and tired of Carly and Sonny. Both actors and characters have grown tiresome.
Shay, there are no more super couples to root for, no more storybook romances, and no more cliff-hanger Fridays! Honestly, I just put the show on when I am bored, and have it on in the background. I follow what is going on, on here.

Celia

Hi, Shay,
I echo dmr….I cannot watch the Sonny and Carly show, albeit I did like the tete-a-tete between Carly and Joss. I loved it, actually. I would love to see more of that. They do seem to have a good, relatable relationship, aside from mother-daughter little spats, so typically “the teen years”.

I find myself in a quandary when it comes to Sonny and Carly as the forever-couple ( or IT couple ) of GH.
Didn’t Sonny have multiple “loves of my life”?
I guess you had to be there, as it were. And, I wasn’t. Nonetheless, I tthought Brenda fit that bill more so than Carly? At least, that is what I took from researching GH history. Also, wasn’t Sam another ‘love’?
Such sweet irony, though, Shay. A twisty twist…..The writers are finally doing their homework with what is ailing Sam ( if what was whispered in my ear is right, lol). I am waiting to let it play out in case I stick my foot in it.
I do think that Nikolas took Spencer, but I just had a light go off in my head after just having watched today’s episode.
What if Sam took Spencer, so to lure Sonny to that location, and voila’, she shoots Sonny?!
Not a good “what if”? LOL.

dmr

What a shame. Mr. deVry is one of most talented actors that General Hospital has on the canvas right now, and they are not able to come to terms. In my opinion, and I have said this many times before, TPTB need to completely clean house of recurring characters. Also, stop introducing the viewers to new characters that do not have any ties to Port Charles. There is no reason to bring back Steve Burton. “Jasam” is lackluster enough, without adding to their plot. Big money is being spent on Steve Burton, and given the drivel viewers have been fed over the past few years, I can’t imagine it will be worth the cost of the actors we will be losing.

Steve

If they completely clean house of recurring characters, that means no Ned, Bobbie, Monica and Scott to just name a few.

The future is likely the opposite — fewer contract and more recurring. Easier on the budget and for creative options for the writers. Fulfilling the episode guarantees of some of the contract players results in some stories dragging out longer than need be.

dmr

I wasn’t referring to the legacy, veteran recurring actors, that you listed above. I was referring to Amy, Aunt Stella, etc. (and a few of the contract actors..)

Shay

@dmr…In other words, all the “filler characters” who could leave and we wouldn’t really notice…or care!

Steve

The show seems to be at a shifting point with deVry, Budig, Jean P and apparently others departing. It’s time to mix things up.

Why is there not a third option? deVry could go recurring. Heck, some recurring characters (i.e. Valentin and Charlotte) are seen more than contract players. Honestly, after the contract debacles with Tyler, Becky and Roger, the show looks to be saving face when they really want him out.

Maureen

I wonder if Jean P decided to resign when she was told how she was going to have to steer the ship. She was a champion of Rebecca and told her what a pleasure it was to write for her. Rebecca was fired with years left on her contract to free up cash for the return of Steve B. Hayden’s demise will concur with Kathleen Gati’s exit and she was recurring and very talented and someone I tuned into GH to watch. Interesting as well that all these big changes are going down as Ron’s work debuts on Days- heaven forbid they overtake GH’s #3 spot in ratings. Seems like they want to remove every character or trace of Ron from GH -I enjoyed his writing very much. Devry is certainly a leading man and has been with the show now for several years. So I can see him wanting a raise and to be in line with some of the other leads on the show when it comes to pay. It is time to mic things up, but so far, this is not a tasty recipe – nor one I feel will be successful. I can not think of one story that has had a satisfying payoff for investing hours watching. Amy, Nelle. Aunt Stella -could all be wiped out by another serial killer-and let’s make it another like the last- totally implausible and devoid of any invested interest.

Steve

Maureen,
You hit the nail right on the head. DeVry has the presence and acting abilities of a leading man, but the character of Julian is supposed to be on the supporting level. This, the pay difference. Howarth had a similar quandary as he’s a leading actor with a supporting level character.

Tyler Christopher’s Emmy win as Lead Actor was well deserved, but is probably what destined his ultimate contract demise.

Soaphound

Maureen, you are so right! Lord knows how much sinister budget busting has been happening because Steve Burton deigns to return. And we need to ditch these awful characters like Amy, Nelle, Jordan, Aunt Stella, Charlotte, heck, I don’t wanna see Joss or her boyfriend either. Billy Miller, William DeVry, Roger Howarth, Maurice Benard, Michael Easton, Ryan Paevy, Matt Cohen…how many leading men do we Need? Just give them something interesting to do!

Vicki

Steve and Maureen you are both exactly right. Cut these lower rung players. My bet is BM will be gone a few months after SB arriving, GH better get its ducks in a row or ABC will can it too

Trish

Maureen, you are right on point! Keep Will and Rebecca and Kathleen and get rid of the nonsense characters who take up screen time and are a waste of time. Burton has no place at GH, he’ll only leave again and all that money goes into his pocket. For him to temporarily grace us with his presence, all these great actors lose their jobs. Not fair, not good for GH. This show is skating on thin ice at ABC, these decisions are going to push it into the path of the underwater drowning of AMC and OLTL and another Chew will come bobbling up to the surface! Then they’ll have no one to blame but themselves!

kmayne

I would rather have Julian stay in Port Charles that Valentine.

Celia

It’s hard to say whether Will will stay or not. However, I am liking this new sheepish persona he is trying to affect……Hmmmm. This is one mobster whom I want to be redeemed. But, keep him away from Alexis.
She reverts to her adolescent years when he ‘smudges’ her line of vision.

Shay

“Adolescent ” is putting it both mildly and kindly, CeeCeeGirl!!!! The hormonal surge Julian inspires in Alexis leads to temporary brain-freeze….no sense or willpower to resist whatsoever!!! Then again, without him, she’s reduced to a cranky, jumped-up femme looking to sublimate her unfulfilled passion by going all legal whoop@$$ on Valentin with her patented in-your-face condescension!!! Some choice, eh?

Celia

LOL, Shay,
Only on soaps could this ‘law suit’ have any legs. As a “one-two-punch” kind of advocate Alexis is, why take this case? Blame the writers.
I suppose the writers had to recharge her batteries ….she has to start somewhere. Let’s hope Alexis uses her revived energy in court and not on Julian.
Today’s scene with him was over-the-top- theatrical, but I did enjoy watching Nancy. She is a really good actress….cannot deny that. And, she looked great.

Patrick

You said it I was trying to explain to @rebecca1.

“…With her patented in your face condescension ”

Truly. Really bad writing to save face. Shelley and frank

The Cleopatra look throws everything out

Shay

@CeeCee….Now that it shan’t be long before “The Juice is On The Loose,” I sure hope OJ doesn’t come to Port Charles as he renews his quest of “looking for the real killers!” His highly-checkered past would be like carnal catnip to the concupiscent Alexis….right within her usual bailiwick!

Celia

Ah-ha-ha…. belly laughs….out the door, but, I just found out that my mother, who was still in law school at the time, recorded the OJ trial….every day.
I will definitely find the time to watch—maybe it will cure my insomnia. LOL.
If OJ comes to PC, he will blame Sonny and the Jeromes to exculpate himself and clear his honorable name. Ha!!

Shay

Oh, CeeCee, I was not that engaged in the revolting daily travesty of the trial that became a soap opera unto itself, but suffice to say, it was a true miscarriage of justice, and in some ways, the system and this country have never recovered from its sordid taint! Kind of reminds me of the Port Charles method of excusing any and all activities perpetrated by its criminal elite….

Lou piikes

If WDV didn’t renew his contract maybe TPTB will recast the role of Julian.

Timmm

That would be fine.

Aria

Enough already, let him go, bye, let’s get other stories going, Julian n Alexis are boring, Alexis is more interesting by herself.

Lin Herz

I agree. She’s a smart woman and stupid when it comes to men. I’d like to see her with an interesting, but decent man.

Shay

@Lin Herz…Those sort of men don’t appeal to Alexis…only the bad boys, and preferably ones with mob connections!

Lin Herz

I agree with you, Shay. I think it’s awful. Bad example for young women and I can’t stand this bad boy and mob stuff in relation to Alexis. Maybe some women find it interesting, I can’t stand it.

Iakovos

Love having Mr. deVry on the screen. Just not overly thrilled with the GH character and story mix of the last 15 years. The connections of newer characters seem forced and there is an almost heavy history of sadness and silliness suspending belief in the proceedings more than it has to be.

Vicki

I quite agree. I enjoy Julian more than Sonny acting and stories

Celia

Yes. I agree, Vicki.

Patrick

Bingo bang dead on

Sonny has to go

Haley

Re-sign William Devry with GH. He is my favorite actor and “Julexis” is needed. Theyre very loved despite being so controversial

Lucille Ramella

So true Haley!!! Julexis is amazing!!!

Rebecca1

agree!

Jimmy

I love William DeVry, and even though Julian has been a despicable character in the past, he’s making a genuine effort to turn his life around and make amends with the people he hurt. I really hope they find a way to come to an agreement so the same thing that happened last year with Tyler Christopher doesn’t happen again. With so many non-essential, empty shell character running around Port Charles right now, the show needs to keep as many good ones as it can. That’s why I’m not too upset with Rebecca Budig’s exit. She’s a great actress who was saddled with a boring and useless character who doesn’t add anything to the canvas. The same can be said about Franco, Nina, Finn and Andre to name only a few.

It just goes to show that GH is wildly inconsistent right now. Aside from the lack of core characters and ridiculous amount of newbies dominating story, this can be evidenced by Thursday and Fridays shows. The tribute to Lee Baldwin/Peter Hansen was very well done and incredibly moving, but those scenes were immediately followed up with this painful Ask Man Landers garbage. Another example are the beautiful scenes between Maura West and Nicolas Betchel being followed by Carly and Bobbie, two grown women, scheming and sneering behind Nelle’s back (which is ludicrous considering they have both done WAY worse than Nelle has). The tone of this show is very wobbly, and sometimes it’s difficult to watch.

Lucille Ramella

Yes I agree, keep the amazing actors that make the soap so wonderful and get rid of all of the newbies that do nothing for the show!!! Why would the writers even think of not keeping William when they know Julexis has so many devoted fans it’s so obvious!!! They are the Golden couple of GH!!! Wake up writers and do the right thing!!!

Patrick

I am OVER must please Alexis and #1 dullard Sam

f* them. Julian is more than them. Move him on the canvas. Whenever any one is in the Corinthos orbit. Sink and swim. Carly and sonny over yet.

Absolute

Soaphound

I hope Julian stays because I like the actor, but the character seems to take one step forward and two back. That bores me. However, William DeVry is a terrific actor and is one of the very few men on GH that fill the “fantasy” gap. He’s sexy without even trying. But I don’t see how many directions Julian can go after that “knife at Alexis’ throat” scene. One has to draw the line somewhere. Doesn’t one?

Patrick

“He’s sexy without Even trying”

AMEN

Gwen

I have the answer. Just like Pam and Bobby on Dallas- Alexis needs to wake up and realize it was all a dream- and that gives carte blanche to erase all that needs to be erased for all parties concerned in the show- and yes, Julian emerges from the shower naked, for all to enjoy. Now-they could even make the dream cover years of bad behavior and erase Ava’s crimes and her burns and bring back AJ Quartermaine as well. This seems the most fair and equitable and best decision and I ask any of you with those Hollywood connections to immediately present this to the powers that be for urgent consideration.

Steve

The bad dream idea would definitely shake things up in the cast:
AJ, Morgan, Duke, Nikolas, Sabrina, Silas, Rafe, Carlos and Connie would still be alive. Jason would still be dead (or missing and never got Billy Miller’s face). Finn, Hayden, Curtis (among others) would not be in Port Charles, while Luke and Tracy would.

Gosh, I had to keep adding characters to those who died since Connie.

Taylor

I love Julian and WDV! I hope TPTB grow a brain and
resign him!!

Lucille Ramella

Me too Taylor!!! They would be foolish to let a wonderful actor go especially with the dedication of all of us Julexis fans!!!

James R. Poissant

I never thought that Tyler Christopher would be off the show the way he was but it happened so it goes to show that the same thing could happen to William DeVry.

Mister Media

I like him and I hope he stays, but his character is mired in convoluted backstory, as are several other characters on the show. GH has a propensity to take heavy hitter actors and then write their characters into a corner. This is currently also happening to Ava and Valentin. In order to justify the characters’ continued presence the writers are constantly revising their history in clumsy and inconsistent ways. I realized today that I am getting exhausted trying to keep track of the story arcs and plot lines because the writers are not careful and consistent with their follow through. It shouldn’t be hard work to be entertained. It’s the writers’ obligation to present the story arcs in a clear and consistent way. Soap operas cannot be written and re-written on the fly because loyal viewers are too committed and savvy about story and characters. When story lines and characters are dropped for weeks and months at a time it plays havoc with the storytelling and makes it a chore for viewers rather than the pleasure it should be. Also, having silly plots like the one involving the chimera which have no real payoff or lasting effect on the canvas are a waste of time. Long live GH!

Maureen

I think it was Michael Fairman who interviewed Jean and Shelley and they were discussing the serial killer story and how they had not decided yet who the killer was-well into the story. When I read that I could not believe it-but as I watched it was totally believable that they just pinned the tail and Paul and then anything else they slapped on Heather. The hospital security cameras come and go- not able to spot the serial killer, yet Olivia Jerome able to place cams everywhere within the hospital.
I totally agree with your points. Remember the old days- the stories were often riveting and certainly there were pay-offs and made sense. You could be a villain, but there would always be a substantial price to pay for one’s crimes. When an actor was needed-yet unavailable-someone else played the part- for a day or week or whatever was needed -in order for the story to be told -for the viewers-the ones presently left scratching their heads and wondering what, and why they continue to tune in- if they do.

Reed

Could not have said it better, very thoughtful and well-reasoned! As a GH viewer since the 80’s, we’ve pretty much seen it all…and then seen it again, and again, and so on, but that’s the nature of the medium–lots of stories told, as we approach our 55th year on air. In similarly contemplating the state of the show, I took a different approach and checked in on abc.go.com and disneyabcpress.com, as well as the ABC Daytime Wiki page to get a sense of the organization as a whole and how it’s managing its asset, this venerable show, and I just don’t see the energy being devoted to it. From outdated cast lists to generally underwhelming content on their own sites, it just appears lazy and perfunctory. Who knows, maybe the die was cast a long time ago and Disney just allows the show to exist as a concession to the faithful viewers but with limited resources–both monetarily and creatively? From an entertainment company with the depth of creative talent like a Disney, I would find that difficult to believe, but I’m also not seeing a clear champion of the show or getting a sense that it matters to Disney to further this television legacy. TPTB seem content with the merry-go-round of EPs, writers, and actors from this predetermined talent pool, as if these are the only people qualified to do daytime drama. Where is the desire, creativity and mandate to make America—I mean GH—great again? Disney, manage your damn franchise! Don’t allow something unique and venerable to wither and die—throw some fresh resources at it and hold people accountable to grow your business. You’re an entertainment and media company, figure it out!
That said, I very much appreciate the efforts of the village it takes to put my show on daily. It wasn’t until I stumbled upon this site that I began viewing with a more critical eye—there’s such passion here. While the sky is not falling and our show is not in shambles, fans are understandably concerned about the state of our daytime shows and the perceived death watch the medium is on, should TPTB fail to adapt and reinvigorate the genre for today’s viewer. Do better!

nancy dillingham

Great post!

Max Daddee

Would hate to see William leave the show. Can’t imagine anyone could replace him. And I have no idea on why GH would fund pay for actors in roles such as screwball Amy. Let her go and contribute the money towards retaining good actors that play essential characters.

Lucille Ramella

Max you are spot on!!! So true who cares about these newer actors I sure don’t!!!

Shay

“Screwball Amy!” That’s a good one, MaxDaddee! And spot on, too!

janet

Guess they need the extra money to pay stone cold dead man walking. I’m off the see the gym./ Thanks Frank. I am getting in shape thanks to the sonny, carley ,now Burton show. I look at the tv, shut it off and go. Makes it so much easier to just do it. Don’t miss the show at all. Do you really think anyone wants to watch the two most evil characters browbeat a character in a hospital bed, Again ?

Brenda

William has to stay he’s a great actor oh yeah and a hottie I love him just give him what he deserves .. he’ll make it worth your while … love My Julian ❤❤❤

Lucille Ramella

Please William you need to sign a new contract for the long haul, us Julexis fans are waiting patiently and we want our Golden couple to reunite soon!!! Without Julexis the soap would be very boring!!!

su0000

RC, no doubt has his eye on the Excellent talent that’s either fired or leaving GH..
Ron will take them i’m, happly.

Steve

Ron is the head writer at Days. Ken C is the executive producer who makes hiring decisions.

Sam

WDV better stay!!!! Julexis is why I watch the show

Sandie

Omg YES!! He has to stay!!

Dan

I’m fine with him leaving, if he is indeed leaving. Good actor, good character, but I think they did pretty much all they can do with Julian. You might say they wrote him into a corner, with all the things he’s done that we’re now apparently supposed to forget.

The idea that Alexis would even entertain the idea of getting back together with a man that tried to kill her is so ridiculous. The whole “Julexis” thing and the fact that they would even try to continue it is a joke. It makes me sick to see them together. Not to mention Julian ordering the death of Duke Lavery, which he never properly paid for. Those are two things I can’t get past as a viewer when it comes to Julian.

It’s not the kind of character you can rehabilitate and make the fans like, even though it seems like that’s what they were trying to do. At least that’s the way I see it. Maybe some fans do like Julian. I just know I never could. I don’t see him being an integral part of the show. I see him as a character that they got a lot out of, but its run its course, and outlived its usefulness, so it would be best for the show and for William deVry to move on, in my opinion.

nancy dillingham

“Wrote him into a corner,” like they tend to do ALL characters. And, they take them down the road to “evildom” then try to “redeem” them. Can’t have it both ways!

Timmm

I like Wil and wish him well. Not a fan of his portrayal or his love with Alexis. Send him to jail and either bring him back someday or recast him. He does have a lot of connections to current characters. Yeah, maybe a recast if they cannot agree on a new contract.

nancy dillingham

Agreed, “not a fan.”

jaybird369

OH, GIMME A BREAK ALREADY!!!!! Those IDIOTIC POWERS-THAT-BE at GH only care about THEMSELVES!!!!! Truly lame.

k/kay

I love the comments but yet you have no problem with MB and his disrespect his killings staying on as a leading man !!!! I hope Devry tells them to shove it come on over to Y&R as a love interest for Ashley enough with kissing the ring of mr cue card MB! Go devry ! Trust me they are losing viewers every day I would love to be a fly on the wall on Grahns take

Celia

“Cue card MB!” . Hilarious, Kay. Different.

Shay

Where have you been k/kay? Most of us have been filling these GH threads with constant criticisms of the show’s gross idolization of those hypocrites otherwise known as Sonny and Carly…most of us are sick to death of them!!!!

jaybird369

PREACH ON, k/kay!!!!! HELL TO THE YEAH!!!!!

Rebecca1

Loved the scenes today with Alexis and Julian and the way they’re playing it…that he loved her all along and never had any intention of killing her…that he staged it because he knew Olivia would kill Alexis and his family if she didn’t buy that he was following orders…It was exactly the “excuse” I’d hoped the writers would give to get this couple back on track. I so hope that negotiations can be ironed out. As I said above…I think it looks doubtful but I hope I’m wrong. Today’s scenes between Alexis and Julian were so good. They’re STILL so good together! (And, yet, if they’re not meant to re-couple…Julian’s still a keeper.

Barb

Was Olivia peeking around the corner while he pressed that knife into her throat? Give me a break-his abuse and attempted murder of his wife is now just a boo-boo?
Or maybe she misunderstood because she was drunk? Alexis wasted no time in bedding Elizabeth’s rapist-whom she knew for all of what- the time it took to suck down five or six drinks? A washed-up, disbarred drunk tramp and a murderer-perhaps they do deserve each other. Misogynistic unrealistic and disgusting.

Celia

Thak you, Barb.
I have said the same thing. Julian could have done ‘something’ to battle his sister. Lame excuse
by the writers, who, wait til the last minute to conjure something up.
Nonetheless, be that as it may, it would be foolhardy to put these two together again, if William remains.

Rebecca1

The writers gave a rationale of which I’m willing to suspend my disbelief…in anticipation of viewers having the same reaction as you. And, when all is said and done, the audience will be divided. Which may, in fact, be a moot point if they don’t renew his contract.

But…Alexis specifically brought up the points you just did…”did Olivia have a camera in the house? why didn’t you give me a head’s up?”

Julian’s answer…Because if he warned Alexis..if she knew the plan, Olivia could probably see through it. If she didn’t “buy” that Alexis was afraid for her life…if it didn’t “look” like he was going to kill her…Olivia would have retaliated and finished the job herself and possibly gone after Danny, Leo, etc. She already proved she could get to Leo.

As soon as Julian was hospitalized and after he was jailed, it was obvious he still loved and was worried about Alexis. She’s all he talked about, had “visions” of…told people he’d get her back. So, even looking back, it makes sense that he never would have gone through with it and had to literally traumatize her to keep her and his kids safe.

It works for me. That’s what I thought anyway. I thought at some point, before Sonny stepped in, he’d whisper to her..maybe drag her away or simulate killing her to make it “real” until he could deal with Olivia.

No; that reasoning won’t work for everyone. As I said, it does for me and I’m sure many others.

Again, if DeVry doesn’t renew it makes no difference. If he stays…I’m in.

As for Alexis, she had a one-night stand. It happens. Really. But she had no idea who he was. Do you REALLY think she knew he was a rapist?

“A washed-up, disbarred drunk TRAMP?” Ya. We definitely don’t have the same sensibilities or perception of character…literally and figuratively.

Gwen

The part of Barb is now being played by Phoebe Tyler! Drunk, disbarred Tramp! Strumpet! Harlot! Or Enid Nelson – just kidding, Barb. xox

Rebecca…I liked the Alexis and Julian scenes as well. It looks like the writers are trying to find a way to redeem Julian. But “Hey” it’s a soap. They do suspending belief and reinventing history all of the time. Waiting to see how they do the same for Ava.

I’m thinking Nik is behind Spencer’s disappearance. This helps keep the Cassadine story going. Yea!

I replied to you and others on the longer Y&R ratings story.

Sorry to end on a bad note…a “hunter” has killed Cecil the lion’s son. Apparently he roamed outside the protected reserve. I can’t think of a bad enough word for hunters and guns period.

Rebecca1

Hi, Rose.

Yes; I just read that about Cecil’s son. I expected to see first sons dumb and dumber standing proudly over their latest kill. I was reading the comments section of a non-soap site and one person asked the others if they know where she can find a suckling pig “uncooked” because she was having a party/roast. Then, another posted a pic of a pig complete with eyes wide open and an apple n his mouth…his four “legs” splayed outward as he was held between the bottom and top part of the racks on the grill. It was so beyond sickening; my heart just broke. Same thing; came across some cows minding their own business, just roaming the grass and I thought…”they have no idea they’re being fed just to be killed.”

More thoughts on the subject but…you know how I feel.

Ya! Like I said I’m loving Julian and Alexis. And, LOL, I actually think they’re more “believable” as a couple than before! Lemme ‘splain. Before, they were in the throes of passion and we saw a lot of that. Which was normal and long overdue (for a middle-aged couple) to finally be seen “doin’ what comes natural” on the show. But we were just getting to their emotional bond when they had him do a 180. Now I just feel their bond…the tension…the conflict within Alexis because she still loves him so much and wants so desperately to believe he’s telling the truth…and the way she lets him in against the “world” opinion (LOL…both on the show and by some “here”) makes me love her/him more. They just play so well off each other. Of course if I, too, didn’t believe him I’d not be buying it/liking them…but I do. As we both said, “it’s a soap.” Michael’s back with Sonny (I’ll FOREVER hate that. It goes even before Sonny murdered AJ…they both tortured him for years. So, to me, there’s no way of getting ’round that one.)

Anyway, my soapy friend, I do hope you’ve checked out “Younger.” My goodness…I can only imagine the “talk” about that show if was discussed here. Forty-year old woman lying her way into a job by saying she’s 20-somethnig…and the friendships, boyfriend that follows! I can’t say enough great things about this show. Charming, witty, sexy, romantic, cool, NY, creative, ALL GOOD! (On TV Land.)

Let me know if you get a chance to check it out! 🙂

Rebecca1

oh; one more thing…regarding Spencer/Nicolas. At first I thought he was taken by Nicolas or by order of Nic, too. But…whoever took him really threw him down the stairs so I think that theory doesn’t wash. He’s a kid; so…if they took him they wouldn’t harm him and they wouldn’t be keeping him scared, alone, feeling imprisoned. LOL…ummmm..”it’s a soap” you never know. But I’m thinking Valentin. Or…da da da daaaaaaa…Helena??? (Oh, I know…she’s dead. Or is she?????)

Rebecca1

LOL! Wait! It wouldn’t be Helena either for the same reason I didn’t feel it would be Nicolas. Back to Valentin…

Patrick

Suspending belief is a whole other arena TPTB want

I bit when both Alexis and Julian teared up. Worked

I want William DeVry

nancy dillingham

I’m agreeing with you. “Thinking Nikolas is behind the kidnapping.” Keeping him out of harm’s way.

Rebecca1

Hey Nancy! As I mentioned to Rose…on the one hand I could see it’s Nicolas…but it seems strange if that’s the case they’d throw Spencer down the stairs and leave him alone for what seems like hours…then they took a pic of him and sent it to Sonny? Not adding up. (I do think Nic’s alilve, though.)

Gwen

In the olden days, and please, correct me if I am wrong- it was black and white-good or bad and there was a degree so to speak- Erica Kane- she lied, cheated, drug-addict-oh-killed-but there was a plausible defense although she also went to prison-well it seemed to me you could be bad- very bad -and for a good long time-but there would always be justice and you knew your favorite villain would sooner or later be killed or jailed or both. They might return- but after a good absence-as themselves- or another character or twin. Now, on GH-it does not work like that and I love Ava- and I forgive her all and want to keep seeing her- as I am sure goes for Julian, Sonny etc- Franco. Each of us wants our favorites to be ok and we want the others to suffer and be gone. By the way- what about Julian killing Carlos- I remember he went to prison for 5 minutes but-and Sonny as well and then pardoned- And was it Carlos that killed Jason who turned out not to have dies but I remember him stabbed or hurt and tossed into the water. I really did have a clear point in mind at the start of this.
I do not like the writing when things don’t make sense at all or history rewritten unless it makes sense. I am willing to suspend disbelief but not willing to be considered brain-dead. I wish we could vote fairly for who comes, goes and stays as I would accept my losses graciously. I have reached no return with Sonny and Carly and their dominance of the entire show-in my opinion and I know there are many that adore them. He inherited top dog spot from Luke and I cared for him not, either. I don’t want a king on any show-I want to see everyone get a chance front and center. Bringing Steve back at a huge price that entailed firing others to free up the funds- I guess they feel this will pay off in ratings but I fear it may not. I like Devry- he is extremely handsome and sexy- and he deserves to be in the top rung or whatever it is with salary -I think- but I think negotiations are, indeed over. There is only so much money available and looks like they have spent it elsewhere. He and Alexis seem to have a huge and angry fanbase as well. I thought Valentin would be gone for good-and he too is very talented and handsome and enjoyed his singing- so he is back as well. So yes, I am just as confused and bewildered as this post clearly indicates.

Steve

It was Faison, wearing his Duke mask, who shoved Jason in the water.

Celia

Hi, Gwen,
I have said the same thing….so many times and for sooo long, in so many ways.
I can only take so much inexplicable nonsense. We are not idiots. Some reality is good for the soul, now and again.
You said it best. “…….but not willing to be considered brain-dead.”

Barb

I regret my comments. I had forgotten you are the resident GH expert and on retainer to defend Alexis and Julian 24/7. As is your right. I do appreciate that you did not call into play my comprehension skills or low IQ and very diplomatic in your response. Thank you and my apologies for the disparaging comments regarding Alexis and Julian.

Patrick

William DeVry as Julian… is thee hottest most sexual being WITH acting skill

add in Valentin… Kevin … heck big Mac … will always love Scotty… Dante, Ned, Curtis, Nathan (YES) , Lucas , Brad, Dillon, Griffin.

these men charged the audience on so many levels.

why is it , that GH continues to focus : Sonny / Michael / Finn / Franco / Jason

because they are stale
because they do not resonate

they are … boring FIRE them… Shelley and Frank are equally dull

I hope William DeVry is rehired. bring back Robin Christopher as Skye Quartermaine
as his new leading lady.

another man who generates HEAT… is Rick Hearst…. Ric Lansing “OOH LA LA”

Linda

who will be the big bad gangster if he leaves since Sonny is “quitting” the business?

General Hospital

GH Preview – Week of May 28, 2018

GH: Will Drew Discover His True Past?

Coming up on General Hospital, Drew (Billy Miller) searches for his memories and decides that he wants Andre (Anthony Montgomery) to prepare to move ahead with the high-risk request to strip him of Jason’s (Steve Burton) memories so that he can retrieve his own.  Will Drew be able to get his life back?

Then, though Carly (Laura Wright) did not intentionally push Nelle (Chloe Lanier) down the stairs, Diane (Carolyn Hennesy) convinces her that her best chance at freedom is to enter a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity.  As a result, Carly expects to be sent to a mental institution rather than prison, but what will happen? Here are more teasers for next week’s 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.”

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.
