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!

Now, that’s FUNNY…LOLLOLLOLLOL, 4ever…..

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 Kathleen Gati and Michelle Stafford Deliver The Power Performance of The Week!

A grieving mother and sister found themselves stuck in a revenge plot gone haywire, that provided the backdrop in which two accomplished actresses; Kathleen Gati (Liesl) and Michelle Stafford (Nina) were able to shine on episodes of General Hospital.

Although Peter’s kidnapping went on far too long, and fans on social media have their own viewpoints as to what they think of Mr. August aka Henrik Faison (Wes Ramsey), the final week of taking Peter hostage to torment him as payback for his part in Nathan’s death; gave Gati and Stafford scenes from the comedic, to the emotional, to the cray-cray, and more..

Courtesy/ABC

On Thursday’s episode, Nina is trying to talk down Liesl from torching the place, but Liesl is becoming more unhinged and more grief-stricken.  She says to Nina, “I lost my son.  I gave Nathan up to protect him.  I spent my life not even daring to gaze in his direction for fear that Cesar would take him.  I never wanted my son to be like him, and now my beautiful boy is buried in the ground, while the other son is still breathing!  So, I must finish this my way, Nina  …  with or without you!”

Pleading, an emotional Nina responds: “Aunt Liesl, you are not the only one who lost time with Nathan.  I did, too.  I missed him growing up.  I missed his childhood, and seeing the incredible man he turned into.  I feel his absence and I feel the loss every second of every day.  I hate Faison, and I will for the rest of my life, and I hate Anna (Finola Hughes) just like you did, but that does not justify what I have done… being an accomplice in this crazy revenge.  None of that is going to bring my brother back.”   Nina goes on to say:  “I knew J would not want his mother grieving alone. This isn’t grief anymore … this is madness.”

Obrecht with rage and sadness in her eyes says, “The brightest souls like my Nathan are extinguished.”  And from there, as viewers know by now, Liesl sets the fire, which sets the stage for Nina’s rescue, and the Friday cliffhanger of Finn (Michael Easton) having to decide whether to go in the burning building and get Peter out, or not.

Later on the pier, a stoic, but grief-stricken Liesl is arrested.  She spitefully tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan (Vinessa Antoine), “Tell Anna something for me: ‘Now we are even!”‘

Earlier in the week, we saw how Kathleen Gati navigated the comedic yet dramatic moments as she had to knock Franco (Roger Howarth) out, while she was trying to get back to Spoon Island, as he realized Obrecht was the guilty party who took Peter.

Gati has made Obrecht, this one-of-a-kind character, come to life, no matter what the circumstances the writers put her in.  And as for Michelle Stafford, when Nina spoke of her brother and the loss she continues to feel, it was one of the most on-the-money moments for anyone who has lost a sibling that they looked to.

So, even through some of the absurdity of the circumstances, and as they were portraying two women trying to figure their way out of the mess they created,  Gati and Stafford never faltered as they committed to the material, and delivered this week’s Power Performance of the Week.

Does GH’s Margaux Have A Connection To Someone In Port Charles? If So, Who?

This week, General Hospital viewers saw that the ABC daytime drama series is teasing a potential pairing of Drew (Billy Miller) and the new district attorney in town, Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Hendrickson), after the two characters run into each other at a concession stand at the cancelled baseball game.

As fans of the soap genre know, Miller and Hendrickson also played former love interests on The Young and the Restless as Billy Abbott and Chloe Mitchell.

During Hendrickson’s first #AskGH live Twitter Q&A when asked: “Is your character connected to someone on the show?”  Elizabeth responded: “As of now Margaux is new to town … but you never know, there may be some connection that has not be revealed yet :)”

That tweet has left fans speculating if perhaps Margaux, has an ex in Port Charles, is tied to a major family in someway, or perhaps has some legal trouble past?

Recently on GH. when Chase (Josh Swickard) arrived on the scene as the new cop (following Nathan’s (Ryan Paevey) untimely death), it was later revealed that he was actually the half-brother to Finn (Michael Easton).  And as we know in the soaps, connections are usually the key to more long term success in a role, rather than being just a standalone character, but there have been exceptions.

So, who would you like to see Margaux have a connection to on GH?  What do you think will happen with her character? Comment below.
