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 Michael Easton and Finola Hughes Deliver the ‘Power Performances of the Week’

It was an emotional week of episodes on General Hospital as the double-wedding of Finn (Michael Easton) and Anna (Finola Hughes), and Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) took a double nose-dive.

Each installment left us wondering if either couple would actually get hitched, but when Finn and Anna were the first to combust and not Peter and Maxie, it set the stage for two beloved soap veterans to once again, remind us all, why they are always at the top of the game when required to play high drama that tugs at the heartstrings.

In story, Finn is gut-punched, (and no one can play that better than Michael Easton), when Anna reveals that she knew that Peter was not her biological son and had done all the horrific deeds he has been hiding, in an effort to stop Maxie from marrying Peter.  When Finn realizes Anna confided in Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), and they were working together to bring Peter down it was too much for him to take.

Finn walks out on their wedding.  Alone and with tears welling up in his eyes, Finn feels his chance at love is dashed again.  Add to the fact, he has DNA results to prove if he is Chase’s (Josh Swickard) father and not his brother, or not, and the guy has been through the wringer of late.

As for Anna, she has literally imploded her own life, while trying to save others, after realizing the error of her ways; constantly putting her faith in Peter.  When she comes to visit Finn, she knows no matter what she says to Finn it looks bad.  She sees how she has hurt him, and hopes they can still repair their now fractured relationship, but she has to stop Peter and help her God-daughter, Maxie from making the biggest mistake of her life, so she leaves him to go back to the scene of the double-wedding.

Later in the week, Anna shares a heartfelt scene with her ex Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers), whom she knows she can have an honest conversation knowing her life of espionage and their shared history.  Meanwhile, Jackie (Kim Delaney) and Finn’s pull is there as well, as it appears Jackie’s attraction to Finn still remains all these years later when he visits her shortly after being blindsided by Anna at the nuptials.

Throughout the week, Easton and Hughes played all the nuances of their character’s emotional life, as the audience witnessed which just might be the end of the line for Finn and Anna.

For all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV names Michael and Finola’s work, The Power Performances of the Week.

So, let us know, what did you think of what happened to Finn and Anna? The double-wedding fiasco? Did you enjoy Michael and Finola’s scenes? Comment below.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
