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 »

GH’s Brook Kerr and Tabyana Ali Talk On: Trina’s Trial, Spencer and Rory, And Their On-Screen Mother/Daughter Relationship

Currently, General Hospital fans are awaiting the verdict in Trina’s trial and just what lengths her mother will go to in order to secure her freedom! With the story playing out on-air, Michael Farman chatted in a new virtual interview with the two women central to the story; Brook Kerr (Portia) and Tabyana Ali (Trina).

As viewers know, Trina was set-up by Esme Prince (Avery Pohl), to make it appear that she taped her best friends, Cameron (William Lipton) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) having sex, and then posted the video from her phone, so it went viral.

During the conversation for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Tabyana and Brook weigh-in on what’s gone down at the trial including; how Spencer Cassadine came forward with an alibi for Trina, plus how Portia may put her medical career at risk if she brings Esme’s partner in crime, Oz, out of his coma to get the evidence they need to point the finger on Esme.

 

In addition, Tabyana and Brook share their thoughts on the men in Trina’s life: Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Rory Cabrera (Michael Blake Kruse), and how the #Sprina has a life of its own on social media.

Brook also shares dishes on Portia’s romantic relationship with Curtis (Donnell Turner), plus the recent noteworthy scenes between Portia and Stella (Vernee Watson), where GH shed light on a mother’s concern; that racial injustice could factor in to the jury’s decision in Trina’s case.

Tabyana also discusses working alongside GH co-stars, Maura West (Ava) and Carolyn Hennesy (Diane), and what it was like taking over the role of Trina from popular fan favorite, Sydney Mikayla.

Check out the full chat with Brook and Tabyana below.

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Photo: ABC

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

Photo: ABC

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Photo: ABC

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

Share your congratulations to Kin on his 45th anniversary in the comment section, and then let us know what has been your favorite Scott Baldwin scene through the years. 

But first, in case you missed it, check out our interview last year with Kin on the Michael Fairman Channel below.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

Courtesy/ABC

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Courtesy/ABC

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.
