General Hospital

Could GH be writing off Rademacher & Marcil Giovinazzo together?

If you picked up the latest edition of Soap Opera Weekly on newsstands now, there is  front page cover image of General Hospital’s Ingo Rademacher and Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo with the words “Bye-Bye!”  on it.

So the question remains, and the speculation begins.  In light of the current storyline where Jax is having huge issue’s with Carly and Brenda is having huge issue’s with Sonny, and both over baby dramas, plus Jax seemingly being the white knight to always come to the aid of Brenda, this scenario does look ripe to precipitate the exit of Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo ( who recently told Access Hollywood, “My time is almost done” referring to her contract with GH) and Ingo!

Add that to the fact, that Rademacher has consistenly been seeing less air time, and this exit strategy or scenario would seem to make sense.

So, if we had to lose both Ingo and Vanessa as contract and/or canvas casualties would you be cool with GH sending them off together? Let us know.

I’m not so sure I would be ok with Ingo (jax) and Vanessa (Brenda) leaving together… but that’s what TPTB will probably do…

He** no!!!I am not okay w/that one little bit. In 2003, when Jax broke off the wedding to Brenda, as far as I’m concerned, Brax ended there. I only see friendship w/Jax and Brenda. Brenda does and always will be totally inlove w/Sonny. If anything I could see Brenda leaving w/her son Alec but not with Jax. However I’m going to stay positive and say that I don’t think VMG is leaving any time soon!!!I don’t even buy what the cover of SOW is saying!!!Until she makes a statement about it, I’m going to stay positive and say that she’s… Read more »

Keep Ingo. Let Brenda go. Guza has turned her into a whiney, neurotic person I don’t even recognize. Makes no sense she instantly fell in love with Lucien and feels nothing for Alex. Could it be he is Jax’s?

I don’t know how they could let Brenda & Jax leave together. She came back & said she loved Sonny for all those years & that she could not be without him. They just got married give them time to be happy!! I do not understand the writting latley..

VML has either phoned it in or it’s the writing….totally lame story lines since she came. The Brenda character is totally different and VML does not seem at all invested. Neither does MB. They have little connection or chemistry any longer. What a wasted opportunity.

Absolutely not! Jax deserves a proper send off, but not by walking away with Brenda. The whole Sonny and Brenda storyline has been destroyed by the forced interjection of Jax. None of it is realistic which probably accounts for the loss in ratings.

brenda and sonny will always belong to each other. the writing for this epic couple has sucked almost from day one with a few exceptions like the wedding. to add insult to injury they have messed with brenda’s character making her too weak and childish. now they have continued to destroy their connection by distancing them emotionally from each other every since the wedding! no wonder gh has bad ratings now. gh needs to put this couple back on course asap. leave jax and carly out of it!

I’ve been a fan of the Sonny/Brenda/Jax storyline for years. Yes, I think the writers have clearly showed that Brenda may have an all-consuming love for Sonny it is not practical in reality. They never really can sustain a relationship–love is not enough. Jax, on the other hand, is a man Brenda has also loved but not with the same level of passion. I think Jax and Brenda can have their happily ever after now that she had an opportunity to be with Sonny.

Finally, I think TPTB really see Carly as Sonny’s true love and partner.

That probably be a good exiit. Now that Brenda & Sonny finally married was hoping for a long contact.

NO NO NO would be so mad and upset that I would leave GH!! the love of sonny’s life is brenda; she makes him a better man and she makes him happier than he’s ever been. not sure sonny deserves brenda’s love, but i always wanted to see a s/l evolve where sonny does earn her love, eg. he leaves the mob for her and his children. jax will always be a very dear friend to jax and someone who treated her well HOWEVER he said he didn’t love her. that was a deal breaker and brenda can never forgive… Read more »

I have and will always hope for Sonny and Brenda to be together. I hate what the writers have done to these two characters, they have really done them an injustice. I don’t blame Vanessa for leaving, she understands that they are completely ruining Sonny and Brenda. Although, I loved the wedding it is obvious that they will run one of the hottest supercouples to ever hit TV into the ground.

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered that made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their work as an ensemble.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly any words.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.
