Burn Baby Burn! GH's Emma and Britt & Baby Ariel Fiasco Makes It Onto THE SOUP!

One of the funniest sight gags in soaps in a long time occurred on last week’s July 5th episode of General Hospital, when Emma’s (Brooklyn Rae Silzer) baby doll, Ariel tinkled all over evil Britt (Kelly Thiebaud)! Britt freaked out and threw the doll off of her only it landed on the Fourth of July barbecue and ended up a crisy critter!

Today, E! Entertainment Television’s popular series, The Soup with Joel McHale has featured the hilarious clip and on online stating, “Not everyone is good with kids. In fact, if you don’t have one and aren’t used to interacting with them, a conversation with a random child can end up feeling awkward.  If this ever happens to you, don’t despair. At the very least it will never be as bad as what happened to Britt on General Hospital this week.”

This is not the first time The Soup has featured clips from General Hospital! We think someone on the staff is a true fan of the show, or likes to have fun with it!  Now watch the baby doll drama after the jump, and let us know what you thought of the moment!

I saw that posted on the Soup’s FB page. It seems a LOT of Frank and Ron campy scenes make it on The Soup, especially when they worked on One Life to Live. And how many times did they show scenes from Passions back in the days? LOL

Sad thing is.. Passions got cancelled..:( Too much camp.. etc (biting my tongue..) it makes me worry about GH. I don’t think GH was on The Soup much if at all before Cartini took over….. I think GH is on The Soup a lot because it is really in a terrible state. JMO.

Ariel shouldve come alive like ‘Talking Tina’ from Twilight Zone and warned Britt she better be good to Emma. Then she freaks out and throws the doll landing in the barbecue…later the charred doll would stalk Britt like Chucky in Childs play but this would be in a dream scene…i think i watch too many horror movies. lol

I think Kelly Thiebaud is a great actress! I actually like her because she is evil with a slight tad of sensitivity. She’s a great addition to the cast.

I love Britt’s stuff with Felix. I like that she doesn’t act all politically correct with him; she tells it like it is, just like he does! And the scenes a few weeks ago with Britt & Felix and Brad & Sabrina were better than the last couple of seasons of “Will & Grace.”

I agree, Jake R! I love the comedic scenes when Britt and Felix cat-fight, and all of the nicknames Britt has for Sabrina, “Frizz-Ball,” etc.! Love the humor!

Not too much on daytime makes me burst out laughing– but that was just too perfect for words— it will be on GH’s classics reel for years to come. Everyone played it just right. And it did the impossible– it made me feel sorry for Britt— she now kind of reminds of the coyote on the old Road Runner cartoons— you know he’s the villain because he wants to eat the roadrunner, but after all his schemes get knock down– you feel sorry for him and start rooting for him to win just once.

I agree. They are slowly giving us reason to not hate Britt so much. Luckily, (hopefully!) it will be a loooooooong time. 😉

I don’t think Brit should have the baby once it’s born. Who knows what she may do to it knowing she threw Emma’s baby on the grill. Poor little Emma was given that as a gift.

The horrid writing and acting on gh is a gift that keeps on giving for the soup. gh was mocked when tracy was screaming abt “the relish” to nikolas. Now this. While everyone online seems to hate the storylines of those oltl actors portraying new chars on gh. Storylines need to be revamped. gh is ny based and centers on a hospital. Yet there are still no Asian american characters!

Isn’t the sleezy lab tech Brad Asian?

BR
Guest

While I completely agree GH needs to do better by its Asian actors, there certainly have been Asian characters and the biggest two in recent memory work/worked at the hospital. Currently, lab supervisor Brad is switching records, facilitating Britt’s deception, hopelessly in love with Felix, torturing Ellie, and trying to blackmail Michael into a hookup. He is on every week. And Dr. Kelly Lee was a major recurring character for years, involved in nearly every major female character’s lives and had her own major story on GH’s primetime spinoff (where there were other asian and middle eastern main characters, all… Read more »

Brad is asian…and by the way ive only seen just one asian at the hospital where i live and very few african americans…but there are a few other minorities there as well.

GH is NY based, but it’s set in the Buffalo/Rochester region. There aren’t a lot of Asians up here.

it was funny but I thought it was in poor taste for Patrick to WITNESS since that is what happened to Robin, crispy critter 1.

considering how Emma’s mother “died”, this is in the worse taste possible. And is it even possible nowadays to by a toy that is that flammable? GH is crashing very fast

I literally laughed out loud at all of the scenes featuring little Emma Drake. Brooklyn Rae Silzer is a very talented young actress. I love when she is on-air. She is an adorable and beautiful little girl. She brings her all to each scene she is in; and I love her banter and candor with all of her adult co-stars.

Comedy is rarely done well on soaps, but the BBQ baby doll scene was really “well done!” (Sorry! Couldn’t help myself.) I thought it was a very “John Waters” moment, and the actors must’ve had a hard time keeping from cracking up.

I was home sick for five days and when “Baby Ariel” ended up on the BBQ, it was the first time I had laughed out loud all week. And I loved when Mac said the thing about “I’m never going to get this burnt plastic off the grill” and Felicia said something about “Baby Ariel’s arm on the BBQ.” There is NOTHING wrong with a little levity and camp on a soap opera. Why is that everyone thinks NOTHING of characters coming back from the dead, amnesia, hysterical blindness, innumerable DNA tests being switched in labs, yet something like this… Read more »

Truly priceless!!!!! And the best part was that Britt wasn’t even trying, yet….LOL!!!! Have to say, however, that I am in the minority when it comes to Emma. I have always found her to be a surly, spolied little brat, particularly with her “pro-Sabrina” campaign…the two of them together are hurl-worthy!!!! Pleeeze rid this show of that Santiago person…she is cloying, self-righteous and just plain annoying….she and Patrick have zero chemistry, and Drake Jr. now comes off as a complete wuss by allowing his obnoxious daughter to choose his (not-so) romantic partner!!!! Oh, while I am venting on my dislike… Read more »

The layoffs are believed to have effected 12 staff members mostly at the executive level.

Emme Rylan On Her Final GH Scenes: “Laying There Emotionless While My Amazing Costars Cried Over My Comatose Body Was One of the Hardest Acting Challenges EVER!”

If you watched Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, you witnessed an emotional and heartbreaking episode where friends, family, and loved ones had to say their goodbyes to Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan) before she is transferred to a long-term care facility to be looked after following her brain injuries and surgery which left her in a coma.

This was to mark the last scenes of Emme Rylan who has exited the series after being let-go.  In story, viewers watched as Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Maxie (Kirsten Storms), Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), Tracy (Jane Elliot) and a grief-stricken Laura (Genie Francis) sat by Lulu’s hospital bedside telling her they will be waiting for her to wake up, as the agonize over the gravity of the situation.

On Wednesday, Rylan took to social media to tell her fans how difficult it was for her to tape those scenes, when she expressed: “Laying there emotionless while my amazing costars cried over my comatose body was one of the hardest acting challenges EVER! They don’t exactly have you practice that in acting school (Thank u to everyone that noticed).”

In response former GH star Ryan Paevey (Ex-Nathan) who also went through a similar on-screen situation when his character was killed-off tweeted back to Em: “I 100% agree and understand, haha.”

The episode gave  Genie Francis a fantastic palette to play and reminded everyone why she is one of the greatest icons of the genre.

So, what did you think of Emme’s statement on trying to get through those difficult scenes as played by her co-stars?  Share your thoughts below.

Daytime Emmys To Remain Virtual For Upcoming 2021 Ceremony

With an uncertain situation of when live events can get back to normal, or as they have been in the past prior to the coronavirus pandemic, The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced today that it plans on keeping next year’s Daytime Emmys award show virtual, to allow for the 2022 awards cycle to stay on track.

In fact, all of NATAS’s award ceremonies including: the News and Documentary Emmys, Technology & Engineering Emmys and the Sports Emmys will also remain virtual next year.

The Daytime Emmys became the first major award show to air a virtual presentation that others followed back in late June of this year and aired on CBS.

In a statement, NATAS chairman and CEO Adam Sharp expressed on the organization’s decision:“The current timetables articulated by manufacturers project mass availability of vaccinations for the entire U.S. population by mid-summer 2021, potentially permitting a return to more traditional in-person ceremonies later in the fall. However, we have determined that delaying our 2021 events to possibly allow for a compressed calendar of in-person Emmy ceremonies late in the year would result in unacceptable delays to our awards cycle for 2022. Instead, we have decided to remain “virtual” in the format of our ceremonies for 2021 while relying on a substantially pre-COVID awards calendar. In so doing, we believe we will be best-positioned to return to a full, on-time, traditional schedule of in-person ceremonies in 2022.

The dates currently under consideration for the 48th annual Daytime Emmys which would be via two or three nights of presentations are: a combination of dates from Friday, June 25, Saturday, July 17 and/or Sunday, July 18.

For those entering the competition, the entry deadline is February, 17, 2021 with  the nominations not to come till May or June.

So, what do you think about the Daytime Emmys going virtual again for 2021? Comment below.
