Always happy news. Congratulations! I have enjoyed Heather Tom’s performances as she traveled from Genoa City to Llanview to LA.

I am not sure a baby is best news for Bill and Katie Logan Spencer. But maybe it will be a game changer and give focus to Don Diamont’s Bill who seems so odd to me (the whole Liam-Steffy-Hope-Amber debacle). A baby would be a dream come true for Katie who, emobidied by Tom, is such an appealing character…if only she was written with more strength.

Congratulations to Heather and hubby James! Lovely news.

And Iakovos, I agree, Bill is beyond odd. Katie needs to grow a spine. She can do much better than that creep. I would have been gone when he locked me up in that tower! LOL. Gotta love soaps!

Congratulation to Heather and James. I hope this doesn’t mean she’s leaving the show. I know she’ll need some time off, but in watching today episode, it looks like she’s leaving for good. However, I don’t like the story line they are doing. Bill and Brooke…are you kidding. That’s just weird. “I” think Bill and Katie are great together. I hope the writers get it together and don’t make this show take a bad turn. Brook’s been with all the Forrester men, lets not get involved with Bill. Bill’s just too devoted to Katie. No matter the story line…once again,… Read more »

Please do not pair up Brooke with Bill, this would be the deciding factor in whether I keep watch the show. I do love what Katie brings out in Bill and the love he does have for Katie and now his new little Will.

General Hospital and ‘H.R. Pufnstuf’s’ Billie Hayes Dead at 96

She was one-of-a-kind, and now actress Billie Hayes has passed away at the age of 96.  Hayes’ family announced her death from natural causes on April 29th at Cedar-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

Hayes was best-known for her unforgettable role as Witchiepoo on the 1969-70 Saturday morning live-action children’s classic H.R. Pufnstuf from Sid and Marty Kroft.

However, daytime fans will remember that then General Hospital executive producer, Gloria Monty, hired Hayes to play the recurring role of the street-smart international spy, Brighton O’Reilly, back in the 80’s series hey day.

GH’s Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) took to Twitter to mourn the loss of Hayes on Monday sharing; “My dear wonderful Billie Hayes has died. Sadly I only got to work with her on GH but it was a magical relationship. Right away Gloria Monty saw something unique and ran with it. I cannot tell you how her passing saddens me.”

In story, Brighton O’Reilly was shot and killed by Victor Cassadine back in 1981. Billie told Soap Opera Digest back in 2003 about her time as an agent on GH, and her exit from the series: “I asked Gloria why she killed me off, and Gloria said, ‘To tell you the truth, Billie, we really hemmed and hawed at it. But I decided to do it for selfish reasons. I knew if I killed O’Reilly there’d be such an abundance of sympathy and love for Scorpio that his stock would go up. And he’s my new leading man!’ I understand why Gloria knocked me off, but I would have loved to have gone on with it because I feel it could have been developed into a fascinating character.”

Sid and Marty Kroft also took to Twitter and expressed:  “Margaret Hamilton (Wizard of Oz) once told us that Billie Hayes was “one of the best witches ever” We couldn’t agree more. Rest in Peace dear friend.”

Billie’s career spanned decades including Broadway, television, motion pictures and voice-over work. In addition, she founded the Los Angeles-based animal rescue nonprofit organization Pet Hope, a cause she had championed since adopting a puppy abandoned in the basement of Broadway’s St. James Theatre during the run of Lil’ Abner in which she was featured in the role of Mammy Yokum.
