Photo Credit: Hutchins Photo

Grey’s Anatomy favorite, Chandra Wilson is checking back in for a guest appearance on General Hospital, but with a twist.  She won’t be reprising either of the roles she played before on the ABC daytime drama series.

Look for Wilson, who plays Dr. Miranda Bailey on ‘Grey’s’, to arrive for the annual GH Nurses’ Ball when she appears on the upcoming May 17th episode.

In it, she will take on the role of  Sydney Val Jean, the east coast fashion editor at Crimson magazine who will appear alongside editor-in-chief Nina Clay-Cassadine (Michelle Stafford) on the Nurses’ Ball red carpet.  Look for those two to go at in their commentary!

Previously, Wilson’s Port Charles stints have included roles as s one of Kevin’s patients, then as a marriage and family therapist.

PEOPLE.com first reported the news.   ‘Grey’s’ literally films next door to GH on the production lot in Los Angeles.

So what do you think of Wilson playing character number 3 on GH? Comment below.

I think she’s great and its now her “thing” to appear on GH as different characters, maybe one year all her characters can appear in one episode.

I dont really look forward to The Nurses Balls anymore..there are a few rare good moments but most in recent years seem more like Wrecking Balls to me…and doesnt Oscar die after he performs at the ball???

Amen, Jimh! “Wrecking Ball” is a very apt description of this over-hyped non-event which hasn’t been worth watching since the 50th anniversary celebration. Even that one was nothing to write home about—-storyline-wise—but at least it featured many of GH’s best characters from the past, which made it memorable. Since then, this yearly debacle has been nothing but a highly-amateurish mess that has failed to utilize the show’s most talented performer, bar none….Kathleen Gati’s hilarious Dr. O.! Put that spectacular crazy lady back in the NB spotlight where she belongs!!!!

Yes…KG needs to be a regular…

She certainly does, Jimh! Dr. O. remains the most creative and memorable character to come out of GH’s last five or six years, and as such, should be treated as the true treasure that she is in the uber-capable hands of Kathleen Gati! Liesl’s NB appearances are still some of the most unforgettable moments that perennial event has ever seen, and why she has not been afforded the opportunity to “crash” the stage each and every year in her own inimitable fashion is beyond me! Her cool and cunning machinations in order to always end up in the spotlight should have become one of the show’s “traditions!” I honestly cannot understand why providing this colorful character her well-deserved 15 or so minutes of fame once a year is such a difficult proposition! Instead, it seems that “stunt casting” always wins the day! Thanks, but no thanks!!!! Bring back that magnificent showstopper Obrecht for an encore NB performance!

I love Chandra and appreciate that she loves the soaps! I also think it’s kind of funny that she’s been on GH three times as three different characters. Will there be a fourth? And will she set some sort of record in due course? Stay tuned.

Jimh,and suOOO too,
Have been watching Grey’s Anatomy for years now. Thurs.nights. Try it, you’ll like it. I have to turn away during the O.R scenes though. I don’t like all the blood and guts. The personal SLs are really good, ongoing like a Soap.

Jimh

I dont watch shows with blood and guts…the only things i watch at night are repeats of Everybody Loves Raymond and King Of Queens and very few other shows

I watch those too. Never get tired of them, no matter how many times I’ve seen them.

I wish the powers that be would spend the money they spend on stunt casting to make the Nurses Ball look like there are more than 12 people in attendance. Also…now is it mandatory that every action packed climax takes place on the same bridge with the same lower level for a pregnant damsel in distress? I am loving the writing on GH right now though! I don’t like all of the stories…but these writers are masters at layering stories and characters in slowly…and then weaving them into umbrella stories. I like the cult story! Its dark and disturbing…but its bracing and different and has real suspense and that What Next quality? I love when stories zag when you’re only expecting a zig. The actor playing Shiloh is just fearless and plays it so harmless and yet SO creepy too!! When he took his shirt off so randomly the other day…I laughed out loud at his brazen audacity and his bold arrogance! I know he is not really a long term viable character…and I think a Who Killed Shiloh story would I want to see her vent her rage on him…and lay some smackdown…but if she murders him then all her growth h would have been for nothing. awesome because pretty much the whole cast has motive!! Shiloh is not a murderer…but I think it would be twisted coolness if Shiloh and Ryan hooked up during the Nurses Ball or during May Sweeps. What if Shiloh hid or housed Ryan for some nefarious reason? We know Ryan will be back for one last hurrah…but I hope they don’t make it as predictable as having Ava kill him. I want to see Ava torture him!_ I want to see her vent her rage and unleash some smackdown on him! But to have her murder him just negates all the growth and progress she has made as a character. And I love Ava having friends! Laura and Ava should definitely become besties! Ava needs that anchor of good friendships. Its cool that Laura and Scotty are in this story!

I love the “Chief” at Grey Sloan Memorial . She can play any part she wants to.

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital. Felix says give it two weeks and she will do something to mess things up.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

Scene after scene, Kelly Thiebaud has lit up the screen and put the “feisty” back onto the ABC soap opera.  As an actress, Kelly can go from the heavy drama, to the comedic, to the sexy, all with ease.

In the March 30th issue of Soap Opera Digest, Thiebaud said of her return:  “Frank Valentini reached out to me the beginning of the year and mentioned that the writers wanted to bring me back for a bit.  I said,’Of course, I will,  I would love nothing more than that!”‘ I just really connect with Britt and have a blast playing her.”

So let us know, have you been enjoying the return of Kelly as Dr. Britt Westbourne, thus far? What do you think Britt is up to? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alexis Breaks Three Years of Sobriety, Carly Locks Up Nelle, Nikolas & Liz Continue to Reconnect

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, after downing a drink at a bar, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) held off on a second one, but unfortunately and sadly lost her sobriety of three years.  When she called people in her life to come get her out of the bar and home,  no one was available, so she called none other than her ex Julian (William deVry).

And it was Julian to the rescue, who also took the legal eagle to an AA meeting. The car ride between them was not all pleasant, especially when Alexis went down memory lane for a moment and recalled when Julian held a knife at her throat.  After the fallout with Neil (Joe Flanagan), she wondered why she ruins all her relationships … consistently.

Elsewhere. Michael (Chad Duell) is trying to get Nelle (Chloe Lanier) to sign and authorize the heart defect surgery on Wiley.  Michael said they  need both parents signature on the consent forms and Nelle is refusing to sign.  When Carly (Laura Wright) finds out she is ready to handle Nelle and goes up on the hospital rooftop to confront her.   Once there, she tells Nelle this is her chance to get people over to her side by signing the consent to let her son have the surgery he needs.  Carly also tells her that Wiley is her leverage.  If she lets her son die, she has nothing to hold over everybody.  And still, after all of that, Nelle refuses to sign.  So, resourceful Carly locks Nelle in and up on the roof so she can’t leave!  Will Nelle come to her senses for a few seconds and sign the papers?  Previously, Nelle told Michael her kidney surgery basically ruined her life, so she does not want to do the same thing to their son.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) is worried about Cameron (William Lipton) and so she sets him up with a therapy session with Neil.  Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) happens by the hospital after getting Ava (Maura West) squared away with Franco (Roger Howarth) for his portrait painting of her in the art room.  He runs into Liz and she shares her concerns for Cameron, and how familiar it is to he,r and how traumatized he must be – having two incidents where he was basically kidnapped within a years time.  She bring up how when she was raped when she was younger that Emily, Lucky and Nikolas were there for her.  Are Nikolas and Liz growing closer again?  Are Ava and Franco?
