To say that Carolyn Hennesy is one busy woman is an understatement!  From playing the hell out of Port Charles legal eagle to the mob, Diane Miller on General Hospital, to her ultimate cougar, Barb in the ABC comedy show, Cougar Town, to her turn as novelist with her series of tween novels based on Pandora, and co-hosting our  monthly On-Air On-Soaps Podcast she is one busy gal.  But, she stopped for a moment for a brand new fun, interesting and irreverent interview with TV Guide Canada’s, Nelson Branco.

From Diane and Sonny’s dysfunctional attorney/client relationship, to playing comedy in the face of all the drama in daytime, to flipping one liners that steal the show on Cougar Town, to laughing it up on the Podcast, Carolyn talks about it all.  Here are a few excerpts!

Hennesy on Diane’s sort of maternal relationship with Sonny Corinthos: “No person in their right mind would stick with someone who drives them completely crazy like Diane has with Sonny unless there was some considerable sense of affection. And you’re right; their relationship is very maternal. Obviously, Diane knows whoever Sonny’s mother is, she didn’t do a tremendous job! God bless her, but she didn’t — no one did with this man! And I think she probably thinks a lot of it isn’t Sonny’s fault. Yes, at a certain point as an adult you have to take responsibility for your actions.”

Hennesy on being comedic relief in the face of dramatic tension in Port Charles:  “The producer and directors know what they have with Diane and they’re really using her effectively [within the canvas]. Now that the young cast is off the beach and not wearing bikinis anymore, I think we’re getting into more serious [fare] as we forge into the winter season. And, of course, as you and everyone knows, Brenda is back — so what does that mean for the Sonny and Claire love [story]? Because, once again, Diane is the Greek chorus: Diane knew exactly what was going to happen. Diane tried to warn Sonny about the consequences of his actions. Yes, he didn’t listen, but Diane is hopeless and will continue to pound him to rethink his actions in a very, very fun way. And then we have Diane’s romance with Max.”

Chloe Lanier’s New Short Film ‘The Reveal’ Releases First Trailer

As previously reported, Chloe Lanier, the actress who plays naughty Nelle Benson on ABC’s General Hospital, has been busy at work on a special project. And while Nelle is upset having just been denied parole on the ABC soap opera, (something tells us nothing will stop her from getting out of the slammer), Lanier on the other hand has been very excited about her new short film, The Reveal.

The Reveal in which Lanier stars, co-wrote, and co-directed along with her boyfriend, Kevan McClellan also has some very familiar faces along for the ride from Port Charles and Genoa City. That’s because Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Josh Swickard (Chase, GH) are also part of the film.

The action takes place at a gender reveal party for a baby, and according to the loglines of the short: “Zoe and James are a young couple attending their new-age friends gender reveal party. As they attempt to find their place amongst the eclectic group of party guests and friends, unsung wishes and hidden resentments begin to surface within their relationship.”

Watch the trailer from Lanier below.

Then, let us know if you are intrigued to see the short film when its out via the comment section below.

WATCH: Jonathan Jackson + Enation’s New Music Video “The Days Are Evil”

Five-time Daytime Emmy winner from General Hospital, and former Nashville star, Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky, Ex-Avery) has released a new music video for the new single “The Days Are Evil” along with his band Enation.

The music video features shots of Jackson in a very dark incarnation, and the track will also appear on Jackson + Enation’s upcoming album due out later this fall, Ultraviolet Empire.

Jonathan says of the new album: “Our new album, Ultraviolet Empire, is a throwback record. It’s a record we played together live in the studio. Most of the songs are one take -just letting the band play.  It was amazing playing with our co-producer Colin Linden and capturing something so raw and visceral.”

This will be the band’s follow-up to their 2017 album  Anthems for the Apocalypse and their successful 2018 tour in Europe opening for Echo & The Bunnymen,

Check out the music video featuring Jonathan released this week below.

Then, let us know, should Lucky return to Port Charles for the Nurses’ Ball with his band and play a tune off the new album next spring? Will Jonathan come home to GH for a guest appearance? Will you be checking out the new music from him in the coming months? Comment below.
