Unfortunately, I could not even touch that bid. It will go sky high.

No ‘guarantee that the walk on scene won’t be cut’? Really? That’s not very nice, considering someone is going to give a lot of money to charity while also paying their own travel expenses.

What the hell is going on? We now have it in schools that we can’t call them boys & girls! God have mercy on our souls.

I attended a school function and addressed my 17 yr olds class as boys and girls…no one complained, banned me from school and no police were called in…lol…who thought up that anyway…you can say a dirty word but cant say ‘boys and girls’ is the most absurd thing ive ever heard…i could understand if it were ‘ladies and gentlemen’ because there are so few of them these days but banning ‘boys and girls’ is absolutely crazy!!!

That’s a lot of pennies! No sense in counting the pennies in a piggy bank. A person would need a passel of pigs to have that many cents!!!

Are you listening, su0000? LOL! ☺

The winner receives a nonspeaking walk on role, but there’s no guarantee to be seen in the final cut of the episode…It’s OK if the winner is a deaf mute as long as he or she is not ugly!

And only one winnner…I guess if a person is a conjoined twin, there’s no sense in bidding…that could be a reason the person is not guaranteed to be seen.

Disney/ABC…a multi-media organization with millions of dollars and high paid execs…are luring fans to bid with money that most don’t have…or shouldn’t be throwing out…for the privilege of a non-speaking walk-on with “no guarantee that the participant’s scene will be in featured in the final cut of the episode.”

Wow! What a deal! Now THAT’S funny!

I must add that I do not mean that the cause is ridiculous….just the MEANS. They could have thought of a less expensive way….not even guaranteed…what the______ !!!

I have LOVED GH my whole life. I would bid, but when I read -There is no guarantee that the participant’s scene will be in featured in the final cut of the episode – I will pass. As a youngster I dreamed of being an actress and working on this show. But if it would never be featured – then why would I spend so much money? So what they really want is your hard earned money. Also a NON SPEAKING ROLE? Come on GH… be better to your fans than this! What a way to crash a dream……

I see it as also being with your favorite stars..
Whomever wins will get be backstage/around the stars, also..
It would be a great memorable time, without a doubt..
And its for a good cause ” to help raise money to keep kids safe from harm in a tolerant learning environment”..
Whomever Wins will have a great time regardless if the walk in would not be shown, but then again it most likely will be shown..

su0000…That good cause could be funded solely by ABC 100 times over. Why not do the right thing and just run a contest where the winner gets to do all the things you described…for free! After all, these actors have jobs (and ABC makes money) because we watch their shows or follow them to others…

IMO, this reminds me of that moment in PEANUTS when Lucy (on purpose) removes that football as poor Charlie Brown is about to kick it and all of a sudden…SPLAT!!!!! Bottom Line Here: IMO, it seems to me that Disney is getting someone’s hopes up and then…SPLAT!!!!! If that’s the case, then that’s NOT COOL AT ALL!!!!!! Period.

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Touches on Racial Profiling, Social Injustice and Bias In Key Scenes with Portia and Jordan

This week ABC’s General Hospital took the opportunity to write in to their scripts and story, the issue that has been so prevalent in our country now and for decades that of racial profiling, injustice, bias, gender equality and more rolled into scenes featuring: Brook Kerr (Portia), Briana Nicole Henry (Jordan), Sydney Mikala (Trina) and William Lipton (Cameron).

When Portia comes to the boxing gym for a workout and comes upon Jordan hitting the boxing bag hard over the the incident with Cameron in the hospital garage, it spurs a greater conversation.

Jordan tells Portia about the situation that arose with Cameron and a gun, and Portia says she heard about it.  Jordan knows if Cameron’s skin was a different color, she may not have been able to de-escalate the situation and talk her officers down, if she had not arrived on the scene in the nick of time.

This launches the two women into an important conversation on racial profiling, social injustice, white privilege and gender bias that they have found themselves dealing with in their professions (Portia is a doctor and Jordan the police commissioner) and their children’s lives.

Later in another scene, Trina reminds Cameron how they, along with Joss (Eden McCoy) were pulled over by a cop last summer when they were driving around the backroads.  She goes on to say when Cameron questioned why they were being stopped, it scared her.  She feels if Joss and Cam were not there, she would have likely been pulled out of the car and pinned to the ground by the cop.  Trina notes she put aside her fear and never said anything to them, because they would never understand.  Trina tells Cam he needs to realize how lucky he was the other night when nothing happened to him after his run in with police.

You can watch the conversation below in scenes with Briana Nicole Henry and Brooke Kerr.

Then let us know, did you like how GH wove this social message into the story?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GH’s James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Those joining Stuart and Pappas in the cast include: Hilda Spellman, Patricia Belcher, Kayden Muller-Janssen, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Lucy Davis will plays Amy’s mom, Eva aka Spark, a feisty supervillain who shoots electrical current out of her hands.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.  Stuart will be continuing his role on GH as per usual.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”

So, intrigued by this pilot and what role James will have within it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
