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.

OLTL Alum Christopher Cousins Appears on General Hospital as Dante’s Doctor

On Thursday, the very shrewd fans of daytime drama, noticed a very familiar face on General Hospital in scenes with Dominic Zamprogna in Dante’s return storyline.

Playing Dante’s Doctor turned out to be Christopher Cousins, most soap-famous for his role as Cain Rogan on One Life to Live from 1991 to 1994 and later reprising the role of the conman back in 2008.  Cain was romantically involved with Tina Lord (Andrea Evans) while in story in Llanview.

Cousins also made appearance on two other daytime drama: as Greg Houston on Another World in 1986 and as Colin Crowley on As the World Turns in 1990.  More recently Christopher has been appearing in numerous primetime TV shows and films.

So, do you hope Christopher sticks around on General Hospital?  Do you think it’s just a guest stint for him to serve Dante’s story? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Since Amanda Setton has taken maternity leave from General Hospital, so Brooke Lynn will looks a little different starting with today’s all-new episode of the ABC daytime drama series. Briana Lane will take over the role temporarily while Setton is on her leave.

Amanda opened up about expecting her third child and her decision to be safe during this time to Soap Opera Digest, stating:  “Despite being really excited and eager to jump back into GH, due to the many unknowns with Covid and expectant mothers, it was advised for us to wait it out.”

Amanda went to say on her temporary exit from playing Brook Lynn: “I will miss her, but only temporarily! Looking forward to stepping back into her shoes soon enough!”

Setton had nothing but good things to say about her replacement: “I can’t wait to see what Briana brings to the character! I’m sure she will do an incredible job and will bring her own interpretations to this fun and complex character! I’ll be watching and rooting for her all the way!”

Meanwhile, Lane took to her Twitter account to express: “Honored to fill some big, wildly talented shoes and step in as the fierce and loving Brook Lynn Quartermaine. Working alongside such gifted actors and a kind=-hearted crew on such a legendary show has been a career milestone… So happy to be on board!!

Lane has appeared in American Horror Story, NCIS, All American, and 9-1-1 to name a few.

So ready to give Briana a chance at her take on Brook Lynn, while we wish Amanda all the best during her maternity leave? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Makes The Heartbreaking Decision About Mike In Episode With Touching Performances

For anyone who has gone through losing a loved one to Alzheimer’s Disease, Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital would bring them right back to the place they found themselves in when faced with the difficult decision of what to do when there is no more hope, when the disease has progressed to its most advance stages, and wanting the person they love to die with what dignity they have left.

Through Sonny’s journey played beautifully by Maurice Benard, we see a son who wants to do what he can to prolong his father’s life, holding on to the moments where there seemed to be some signs of life within his dad, and not wanting the guilt of being the person to make the ultimate decision – in this case to put Mike (Max Gail) on a feeding tube, when he no longer has the desire to eat.

Wanting to move forward with the procedure to have a feeding tube put into Mike, Sonny runs into Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel) who tells him about Yvonne, and how she is at GH on a feeding tube and a ventilator and strapped to a bed.

When Sonny sees how Yvonne is hooked to machines, it is a real awakening for him,  That, coupled with one of the most important talks and moments in the Alzheimer’s storyline when Sonny speaks to Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst)  – who tells him how she sees Mike, who is now a shell of himself, who doesn’t smile, doesn’t eat, and so forth – Sonny is aware of what he truly needs to do.  These scenes they were played to perfection by Rebecca Herbst and Maurice Benard, and couple that with Laura Wright and Steve Burton as a concerned and emotional Carly and Jason; seeing how this situation is ripping Sonny apart, and also facing that Mike will die, they too are devastated and delivered hankie-filled moments in their scenes.

The final minutes of the episode featured father and son in a simple, quiet, and powerful scene where Sonny tells his dad, he is not going to have a procedure, and that it’s OK for him to go.   Mike, in tears, hears what Sonny is saying and is relieved.  Sonny has set him free to die, and now Sonny must face his decision – a selfless one that any of us who have been in this position know has to be done for their loved one; so there will be no more suffering and no more pain.  Kudos to GH for today’s scenes in this storyline.

Watch the scene between Sonny and Elizabeth below.

Now let us know via the comment section, how do you think GH handled this major moment in the telling of the Alzheimer’s storyline? What did you think of the performances?
