Will she move into the Quartermaine mansion? GH needs more Quartermaines!

Why, oh why? The cast needs to be trimmed: PETER, Kristina, Jordan, Hayden, & more.

No arguments on a trimming, but any day we welcome back a Quartermaine is a good day in my book.

Leon was pretty good in the role, but with good writing, Seton has the acting chops to knock it out of the park.

The show needs a ‘Tracy’///let her and Olivia be the new Tracy and Monica tho its hard to replicate the original!!!

As far as Setton’s role on “Gossip Girl,” I agree she was very fine, but that was just a great show all the way around! Creative, fun and juicy…On the negative side, the last thing GH needs is another former “One Lifer” crashing the canvas! Additionally, I COULDN’T care less about the character of “Brook Lynn,” recast, or otherwise! (P.S. Incidentally, please note my capitalized proper portion of this oft-incorrectly stated phrase….it happens so frequently at this website that it makes me want to toss English language textbooks at all the offenders…of which there are many, though not necessarily you, Brian!)

This could be more airtime for my favorite Monica. I’ve always said whenever Monica is on, it’s always a good day.

Congratulations to Amanda Setton. She was wonderful as the devious, ever scheming Kimberly on One Life to Live. I’m sure she will do a great job on GH.

I never really cared for Stacey, but loved Kim esp when she was sassy to the gay couple (who, love them though I did, needed a comic foil to wrench them from their melodrama). Hopefully she brings that sass to Port Charles and mixes it with Quartermaine privilege… and yes, Tracey is reborn! 🙂

Rivalry between Ava and Brook Lynn over Nikolas? Lest I forget–Three women at each others’ throats at the Q mansion—-Monica and Olivia are as much as I can digest over the latter’s lasagne dish!! —superfluous–revolving door galore.
When will Peter ( with the iffy new hair-do) Grow horns and poof-out of PC? What has happened to Maxie’s sharp sense of smelling a rat?—oh, wait; she fell for that other guy—the Australian weirdo, Zach. Lulu’s is irritating and Carly ( love Laura Wright) walks around with a halo hovering over her being, hesitating wether it should make a final descent on her head or take a hike.
Oh, mamma mia!!

They dont know what to do with Olivia. One problem is Ned isnt on much. Maybe with Brook Lynn back that will change. I think the guy you were thinking about was Levi that Maxie hooked up with before. He super sucked! Hey, just like Peter! She has horrible taste in men!

Celia

Hi, T—long time, no see.
Yeah, you’re right about Olivia—-I guess that’s why the PTB had thought to make her run Charlie’s—-then, abruptly changed the route leading to Franco and Kim. I refuse to call Franco Drew—can’t stand this storyline. Round and round it goes.
Yes, Levi. Is Zach his real name? Why did I say Zach? Who knows.
Maxie is another strange bird these days—-I like Peter even less than Levi. She had found the right guy in Nathan, but he had to be killed off. Is he really dead? LOL.
Happy Thanksgiving, T….soon❤️God bless!!

Good to hear from you again. Olivia has money. Why cant she open a pizzeria somewhere else? I guess because of the budget they probably wouldnt build another set. They already have the Metro, Charlies, Kelly’s and Sonnys, whatever it is.

You know whats weird about Franco, he has Drew’s memories but he talks like a soldier in boot camp! Just because he has new memories, he should still walk and talk like Franco!

Nathan was good for Maxie but I guess they cut him from the show? Then they bring in an exact look a like in to play Chase. I like him better and I think him and Willow make a good couple. Maxie should end up with Spinelli like Jason should end up with Carly!

C, you and your family enjoy Thanksgiving and embrace all that you have!

I actually cannot BELIEVE they have recasted With someone else…In two separate runs Adrianne Leon’s Emmy nominated portrayal of BLA was effervescent! Sweet, spunky, talented soul that always had a tear in her eye…I do not understand the need to recast her will always be a mystery…She is my Brook Lynn

Justin and Chrishell were last seen together in public last week on November 14th at a Hollywood Reporter-sponsored pre-Golden Globes party.  Reps for both actors have you to share statements or make a comment.

Hartley and Stause tied the knot in an intimate ceremony at Malibu’s Calamigos Ranch back in October 28th, 201, which was four years to the day after they met.

As daytime fans know, Justin and Chrishell met when they were both part of the soap opera community.  Justin was last on daytime as Adam Newman on The Young and the Restless.  Hartley has one child, Isabella, from a previous marriage to another soap actress, Lindsay Korman, who he met when they both were on the defunct NBC soap Passions. Justin and Lindsay were married for 8 years.
