While this is an interesting idea from ABC, how is this different from the GH Fan Club Weekend every July?

If it is Creation, they lock actors into contracts and they can’t do other shows. No selfies at the table and everything is money driven. They schedule stars up against other stars. I would LOVE a convention, but not from Creation Entertainment.

ABC/D is trying to bring back super soap weekend, but as in a convention. Kudos ABC at least you’re trying. But this move is a little suspect.

Unfortunately for me, I am on the opposite side of the United States so I won’t be able to attend. But it sounds like it will be festive and fun! And I’m glad to see ABC investing in General Hospital. 🙂

I agree Tracy. Super Soap weekends were AWESOME.

Once you paid for the admission into Disney, you had access to the park, rides, and all of the super soap events. There was “no extra charge”. I think this convention will cost a lot of money, we’ll see.

I live less than an hour away from Disney and go to the parks at least twice a month. (season pass holders). Every time I go there, I can’t help but think about Super Soap weekend. I really wish they would bring it back.

From one fan to another, “Thank You” for watching. I have been watching for a long time too. Even though GH is not at their best right now, I will never give up on them.

From the (22) cast members of GH that I met while at Super Soap Weekend, I can honestly say that only one cast member seemed a little stuck up. (She) was not that friendly.

I will tell you that Spinelli and Michael Easton (Finn) were two of my favorites. Laura Wright is very friendly and talks a lot like Carly does.

Keep watching GH. Happy Holidays!!!!

I hope they come to the east coast. I had so much fun at super soap weekends. Sad Disney pulled the plug on that. Now that ABC owns it again they should just put it out there! So many dead of people will show !

This is just one big, disgusting MONEY GRAB. Creation Events lack heart — the very essence of soap opera.. Yuck.

I would love to go to this seeing I live in the Los Angeles area, But the cost to go is outrageous for me, or just outrageous in general! Its a shame it isn’t more in my budget. I received some info and for the Gold weekend early bird price it is $549.00 for the first row seats it is $849.00. Its to bad it isn’t more reasonable! I went Years ago to a ABC fan event at Disneyland in Anaheim and I had the best time and I have some great memories from it. I will just have to keep watching and get my GH fix by the TV.

I would love to go but from what I have seen so far the tickets are very expensive. I wish they would consider the fans when setting prices. I will wait for more information but I will attend the GH fan club weekend. It’s a little less expensive..

Love the idea of having it in Burbank, so close to home! But I csn’ t afford much in the way of ticket prices. I have seen Nurse Tiffany at Costco Burbank (very friendly) and Felicia at Whole Foods Glendale and expressed my enjoyment of the show. I also thought I spied Morgan at my doctor’s office in Burbank awhile back. I am hoping he is being rewritten into the show again. He is okay?
I have been watching GH since it’s inception, when I was about 15. Stopped watching after Luke & Laura got married and returned to watching at the 50th anniversary. I have been hooked again ever since. Enjoy seeing the Webbers’ and the Quartermaines’ offspring and grandkids. Tracy Q. & Laura S. look so wonderful. Miss Luke and Nicholas. I would love to see Laura and her off stage hubby, Jonathan Frakes as well. I loved Star Trek Next Generation.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Lulu Is Served Divorce Papers From Dante

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital. Lulu (Emme Rylan) was in for a shocker when she was served divorce papers while hanging out at Aiden’s birthday party.  Prior to receiving the divorce papers, Lulu and daughter, Charlotte had been lamenting about Dante.

Charlotte (Scarlett Fernandez) asked Lulu when Dante is coming back?  She says she misses him and being a family together, and Lulu sadly agreed she missed him too.  When a stunned Lulu is served the papers, she tells her mother, Laura (Genie Francis) what they are.

So, what is going on here? We know that Peter (Wes Ramsey) got shot in the shoulder by Dante on his visit with Maxie (Kirsten Storms) to Ithaca to see him to hopefully bring him home to Lulu which backfired.

Since Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is not on the canvas as a series regular at this point, it would appear that GH is looking for a way to free up the character of Lulu for  now. But as we know on GH things may not be as they appear.  Did Dante really have those papers drawn up, or is this some manipulation from someone else?

When viewers last saw Dante he was leaving Port Charles to be deprogrammed after suffering severe PTSD from his time in Turkey.  In addition, viewers recently saw a potential new man in Lulu’s life arrive on the scene when former OLTL alum, Mark Lawson appeared as Dustin Phillips.

After yesterday’s episode aired, Zamprogna tweeted in response to the storyline twist, while having some fun about his former co-star Emme Rylan: “She’s gonna be damn heart broken! For at least 5 mins! Then she’s gonna knit something. Hopefully some underwear for Dante.”

So, are you upset that Lulu was served with divorce papers . … or are you glad and want the character to move on in her romantic life? Comment below.

With Talk Of Nikolas On GH, Tyler Christopher Says: “I’ve Always Said I Would Never Close That Door From My Side”

On recent episodes of ABC’s General Hospital, a few of the key characters in the life of the “late” Nikolas Cassadine spoke about him including: his on-screen mother, Laura (Genie Francis), his ex, Hayden Barnes (Rebecca Budig), and a woman who would have been poised to be a new love interest, Ava (Maura West).

So with the name-drops and mentions in recent weeks, could the character who was shot by Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and fell out a glass window on a balcony, be making a return soon and be very much alive?

Soap fans tweeted at the actor most known for his role as Nikolas Cassadine (in which he won a Daytime Emmy for his performance), and former Days of our Lives star, Tyler Christopher, to see what his thoughts were on what could be happening on General Hospital with the character.

Tyler made this statement to his Twitter followers: “You are all very sweet to be so loyaI as you always are. I know they are talking about Nikolas as of late. I’ve always said I would never close that door from my side. I just want to thank you all for always rooting for me and the character. I grew up with him as many of u have.”

For over 20 years, Christopher had played the role of the dark prince of the Cassadines.  When he went on leave from the series in 2016, he was replaced by Nick Stabile, who was Nikolas at the time of the character’s supposed death.

Later, Tyler debut on Days of our Lives and took on the role of the newly created character of Stefan O DiMera.  He was also nominated earlier this year for a Daytime Emmy for Lead Actor for his performance in that role.

Longtime fans of GH have also been active on social media hoping that somehow GH could find a way to bring back both Tyler, as well as his on-screen TV brother, Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky) so Laura could also have her sons back on the canvas.

So, do you think GH is about to bring Nikolas back?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

OLTL Favorite Mark Lawson Appears On General Hospital

Viewers of ABC daytime were in a for a surprise (although rumors had been circulating), when former One Life to Live alum, Mark Lawson showed up on Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital.   In it, Mark came on to the Port Charles scene as Dustin Phillips, a man Lulu (Emme Rylan) was meeting with at the Metro Court for her “story” on online dating, and a potential suspect in the home burglaries tied to a dating app.

Meanwhile, while Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) is away originally being deprogrammed from his nightmare in Turkey, Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) got news from Mac (John J. York) that there may be a lead to his whereabouts in Ithaca, New York,

Maxie is taking it upon herself to locate Dante and bring him back to Lulu.  In addition, when she noticed Lulu enjoying the company of Dustin a bit too much, she was somewhat alarmed that her bff would be having a good time with another man.

It’s been a minute since daytime fans have seen Lawson, who played Navy Seal, Brody Lovett on One Life.  His character was involved with Jessica (Bree Williamson) and all of her alters: Tess, Bess, Wes, et,c and also Jessica’s sister, Natalie (Melissa Archer).

Once fans got wind of his GH appearance, Lawson posted on Instagram along with his workout videos: “Well .. cat’s out of the bag, Stay soapy, my friends.”

So, will Mark continue on GH as a new love interest for Lulu?  Could Dustin be tied to the crimes Lulu is investigating? Would you like to see Lulu move on with her life if Dante is off the canvas for a long time, or do you hope Dominic Zamprogna returns, and there becomes a triangle, or none of the above? Let us know what should happen for Luly in the romance department via the comment section below.
