Carolyn Hennesy Teases Diane and Spinelli Together Again On General Hospital!

Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy) and Damian Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) drove each other crazy on ABC’s General Hospital, but you knew down deep the two characters had a fondness for each other.

Many had hopes that it would turn out that Diane and Spinelli would turn out to be mother and son, especially actress Carolyn Hennesy.  Even Hennesy, who had a deep invested love of the characters, wrote the book The Secret Life of Damian Spinelli that hit bookstores in 2011.

Now in a curious tweet late last week, Hennesy seemed to reveal that under the new GH head writers of Shelly Altman and Jean Passanante that Diane and Spinelli will be in each others orbit.

Carolyn tweeted: “Diane and Spinelli…together again. You asked for it…you’re gonna get it. #GH @GeneralHospital”

Previously, GH viewers learned that Anderson was coming back for a return this fall to the series, but details had not come to light on how long, or which story he would be involved with.  There is much speculation that he could be a major part of the “Jake” reveal, since Spinelli and Jason (Billy Miller) were such close friends.

So, what do you think of Diane and Spinelli in story together on GH?  Are you glad to hear they will be back on the canvas with more upcoming airtime?  Do you hope that Diane is Spinelli’s mother? Comment below!

I also loved Carolyn Hennesy as the wicked Penelope Ellis, Louisa mother in Revenge..
She was great in the wicked mother role..
Good to have Carolyn back with GH no matter the length of time.
looking forward to having Spin back, also.

Can’t Diane just be Diane? Can’t Spinelli just be Spinelli? Every character on a soap doesn’t have to be related to someone else to be in story. Just leave well enough alone. We don’t need another parent/child reunion. In other words, welcome back Diane Miller, and welcome back Spinelli. End of story.

Thank you, Jeremy. I agree. Dont;l try to make everyone related. Life does not work that way. The changes from the writing team switch will be debated but nobody can argue that Diane and Spinelli back in Port Charles is a good thing. And there two actors can do just about anything. Good news.

@Jeremy @Iakovos I agree with you both that not everyone needs to be related and that life does not work that way. I always wonder “How is that all these characters in these small towns end up being related to each other?” I mean, come on, Alexis and Sam both end up in PC and end up being mother and daughter? And then Julian shows up back in PC and it turns out he had had a one night stand (well, not really standing in the back of Julian’s Mustang) 30 years ago with Alexis (in New Hampshire no less)… Read more »

Depends on how well they are written…Spins last return was a boring filler moment just to drag the obvious pairing of Nate and Maxie…Diane as Spins mommy…ok…who da poppa…Sonny?…after all, it is ‘Sonny’s Hospital’ and he has children from Carly, Alexis, Olivia and Ava…so why not Diane even if she and Sonny never slept together…she couldv’e made a withdraw from the Manhood Bank…lol

Yes, please bring back Diane & Spinelli in a story line together. That would be great if they were Mother & Son.

Loved Diane & Spinelli’s relationship, but I do NOT want them related in any way!

Hoping the new writers will utilize Carolyn more. I’ve missed her! About time she comes back!
Spinelli not so much, but I as long as he is over the Maxie Obsession, I can tolerate him

Super excited to see Dianne and Spinelli back on canvas again. How I wish they would bring Spinelli and Georgie back for good. I still think he and Maxie belong together to raise their child. Sometimes on s soap a child needs to be raised by its parents and happily ever after. Also, Dianne and Max need to tie the knot. They’ve always been the perfect couple. Why doesn’t she deserve a happily ever after as well with a front burner story line. I love her.

I may be in the minority BUT I could care less if either of them return. He should have been here for a one arc story and sent away and Dianne DOES NOT amuse me in the least bit!

Well, just base on the picture above I could see where a case could be made that they are mother and son– there is some resemblance to each other. But I doubt even new writers would make these two characters front and center with their own story line. It seems more likely they will both play minor roles in whatever stories that are coming down the pike. If they are working together then obviously Jason will be in some legal trouble and Diane represents him, while Spinelli helps Sam clear him– that is my feeling.

So excited!! Especially for Spinelli!! I have always wanted Sonny to be Spinelli’s dad… never thought of Dianne being his mom, that woud be great!! lol… I don’t know how long Bradford is staying, but If I can’t get my Spixie reunion, I hope I can at least get Spin and Maxie in a story together, KS and BA are just so much fun to watch together. Maybe Spinelli finds out Jake is Jason, but Jason tells Spinelli not to tell anyone.. Spin is tormented at not telling Sam and struggles with whether to tell her or to keep Jason’s… Read more »

Back! We need their senses of humor! As long as the story line is well written, I would love to see a long
Term situation for them both, whether or not it is as mother and son. They are both missed and wanted!

Sorry, Spinelli doesn’t sit well with me at all. There are naturally lovable nerds and then there is this character that exists only to create forced, so-called humor. Nothing interesting about Spinelli to me at all. Diane is fine (and better than Nina or Franco, for sure) but not really needed. Why can’t they revive Alexis by giving her some of Diane’s spirit? Alexis should be the feisty lawyer on the show.

Rose

I don’t like what they’ve done to Alexis. She used to be the capable, feisty one. She even went head-to-head with Diane when D first came on if I remember right.

@sonniorsolita…..Alexis could never pull off Diane’s elan because NLG totally lacks the verve of Carolyn Hennessy. If you have seen any of the latter’s guest roles on primetime, you would know what I mean…the woman is magnificent!

Oh… happy days!!! Absolutely adore Spinelli (Bradford) and Diane (Carolyn) couldn’t be more excited!!! Please let them stay around for a long time and would love to see them be mother and son! Loved her book!

I know, Fanny. Too bad she comes and goes in a flash. Just as I start getting to know her as both the character and the actress, she disappears. I’d rather see her on a regular basis than Alexis.
The same goes for Spinelli. He’s probably back to push the Jason reveal along and then he too, will be a memory. Too bad; I do like him. Bonne nuit, Fanny.

@ CeeCee…Morning
I’m not sure if you were watching GH prior to RC taking over as HW…
Diane & Alexis had cultivated a wonderful friendship over the yrs..
They were fun, witty & entertaining, they complimented each other
perfectly. Diane was Sonny’s best defense attorney, bar none.. I hope
when she returns things will pick-up where they left off… Alexis needs
a major WAKE-UP call, the strong independent, interesting and
intelligent Alexis we once knew no longer is. Hopefully Diane can
snap her out of it. Have a great day, Sweets.

“Tis so true, Fanny! Diane is sassy, classy and adds much more than a dash of panache to the GH canvas. To my way of thinking, her colorful, expressive character manages to be both a consummate professional and a complete hoot….at the same time. (Such a welcome departure from the worn-out, oversexed Alexis! And I’m with CeeCee, Atty. Miller is the one who should be hanging her legal eagle shingle on a full-time basis in Port Charles….every court case needn’t involve Ms. Davis!) Oh…she is totally adorbs with Max, too! Bring them both back in spades!

Fanny
Guest

@Shay… I see you get as much sleep as as I do…..
Now that Paul H./ Mob lord/ is District Attorney, watch
Alexis try to illicit his help in clearing her beloved Julian from
persecution. GOOD LUCK ! Truthfully I was a Julian/Alexis
fan from day one, unfortunately they fizzled too quickly due
to RC lack of character development, no long term vision.
He turned Alexis into a gullible ninny… And when would
Julian have let Morgan get the best of him.. gun or no
gun … Too many inconsistencies. Look at Liz, Dante,
Nicolas, Anna…. Try to get a little rest mon ami.

@Fanny….Actually I’m just an inveterate night person….always have been, always will be! That’s when I’m at my most energetic and lucid…..LOL! But thank you for your concern over my getting my necessary zzzz’s!!!! As for all the inconsistencies and annoyances you have mentioned, you are spot on….(Even though I was never an Alexis fan, and particularly did not enjoy her raunchy pairing with Julian, but all your other points are quite well-founded!) Practically every character on this show has acted like they’ve had lobotomies, or at the very least, done total 180’s when it comes to their innate nature(s)….I was… Read more »

Happy about their return. They are two great GH characters. Would be special story if they are found to be mother and son. Diane is such a strong character, as is Spinelli. Jason will need his sidekick. Always enjoyed the interchange between Sonny and Spinelli. And the adventures Spinelli and Maxie go on are very entertaining. Diane and Max are a great pair as well. Glad they are returning. Hopefully for a long, long time.

Both of these characters have had success in a non-traditional soap way…that is…not being a member of a core family. I don’t care one way or the other if the story goes this way. It could have some funny and poignant moments…and show a whole other side of diane. Maybe it would explain why she is such a shark in the court! Maybe her husband stole her child, Spinelli, and she NEVER saw him again, so she vowed to become a tough as nails lawyer so one day she could find him. I would LOVE to see Diane cry!

Gregory Harrison Is The New Gregory Chase On General Hospital

General Hospital just got hotter as it beef’s up its storyline featuring Kim Delaney as Jackie Templeton.  Now comes word that TV veteran, Gregory Harrison has come to the ABC daytime drama series as the recast Gregory Chase.

The character of Gregory Chase was previously played by DAYS James Read, who plays the treacherous Clyde Weston now and then on the NBC soap.

As to the storyline: “Fireworks could be on the horizon for Harrison’s character.”

So, what do you think about the Gregory Chase recast with Gregory Harrison? Intrigued? Comment below.
