Other than the ridiculous name– the more Spectras the merrier — honestly CoCo– sounds like a breakfast ceral

Obviously you never hear of the fabulous Coco Channel…”Coco” Chanel was a French fashion designer and businesswoman. She was the founder and namesake of the Chanel brand. So the name falls into play.

I heard of “Coco” Chanel– but that wasn’t her real name– her real name was Gabrielle Bonheur– adopting a nick name or giving yourself a persona for business is one thing, but naming your child Coco on purpose is quite another— I get this is a soap about designers and if they wanted a character name that reflected a fashion designer, instead of calling her Coco– I would have went with Chanel Spectra– sounds classier and doesn’t remind one of coco puffs.

Do not like this storyline. at all.
The new Sally Spectra overacts. I think it was foolish to try and recreate a storyline that cannot be repeated.

I watched the show the other day while at home, and after not watching for a long while, how stupid and over the top.

I love it! I think it’s fun and lively…and the budding romance between Sally and Thomas Forrester should be as well!

Oh Dear…another blast from the past for a newer B&B watcher. Since I seem to have been going in circles with the two main “love” triangles,moor the last couple of years, how is Spectra going to help out.? Never heard of them until the last few days.

I’m relatively new to the show too but it seems the Spectra’s were a competing fashion house run by Sally Spectra years ago…from what I gather she was loud and boisterous and fun…a “character” who tried to give the Forrester Creations a run for their money…

In real life I believe the actress died but last week the character (the older Sally Spectre who would probably be in her 70s…a contemporary of Eric) was living the high life on some island. In comes her namesake niece…aka Sally Spectra who is going to try to revitalize the Spectra fashion house. As we can see she’s also a livewire “character” who is more of a funky, fun chick with cool almost Betsy Johnson sensibilities which runs directly opposite to Steffie’s glamorous more upscale look and the Forresters’s more chi-chi upscale fashion house.

I haven’t caught up yet…I’m a couple of days behind so maybe this happened already…but it seems like there will be one or two things happening: a romance between Sally and Thomas Forrester and/or he’ll join their design house and compete with his own family since he feels he was passed over in the company.

Could be a fun story…

Thanks for the overview. It can be just too-too at Forester Creations and surrounds. Just so funky Sally stays out of “live wired” rooms, etc., with Steffy…ala Ivy.

LOL…in Steffie’s defense I don’t think she meant to electrocute her…but I guess when you’re the one being zapped that doesn’t really matter!

Looks like there will be some girl fights starting with the one Sally caused at the restaurant. She’s waaaay over the top but then again so was Delia and David from OLTL…seems like soaps like to throw a little comic relief into the mix. Whether it works depends on the likeability of the “out of the box” character…

Wait B&B is adding more characters to a show that has a lot of actors who do not see any time lately. Should they be adding a slew of new generation of characters to a show that struggles to give the actors they do have any air time?

Totally agree!

Will they replace the fading Avant family??

I agree. Just hope they stop the tired story line of evil Quinn. Thinking the Spectra’s will add a little humor to the failing love triangles. Sick of the Ridge and Quinn BS, There needs to be one stable relationship. Eric and Quinn should be the stable head of this dysfunctional show. Only hoping the swapping is over. So if it takes some new blood, give it a chance. 🙂

anything that takes the focus off Ridge and Quinn and the Liam/Wyatt/Steffy triange the better

Can’t help but think of Spectra in James Bond. Any connection. 😉

I wasn’t around in the original Sally days, but kept up on all soap’s storylines somewhat via the soap mags back then and occasional view when something big was happening.I’m really liking this fresh infusion of characters right now. I think the casting for Sally Jr., Saul and Shirley could not be more spot on! Just got of glimpse of the Darlita character and she seems kinda of blah, but will see what she can do. Obviously Darlene Conley was tailor made for the Sally V.1. The fake remotes with ‘her’ on an island is beyond hokey! Not in the least believable. They should have had Ms. Conley’s passing in the Sally storyline when the clan came on board. That would help us understand Sally V.2’s fire and motivation to revive the fashion house. Love her and Thomas together, finally he seems to have found a great on- screen match! Whatever they do, just don’t put Sally, Darlita or the incoming Coco to be in any triangles with Liam and Wyatt!!

I applaud B&B’s consideration of history and reviving a good counterpoint to what has become very bland goings on at Forrester. I just fear no one will be able to bring to the proceedings what Darlene Conley did as Sally Spectra.

Why are they bringing on all these newbies? How long has it been since we saw Caroline Spencer? I can’t wait to see her reaction to Brook & Ridge getting engaged. Remember how Brook use to snap her fingers and say she could get him back at anytime. I want Caroline back just in time for Ridge to dump Brook yet again for Quinn this time.

Sure miss Darlene Conley- RIP- not sure leaving Sally alive on an island was a great idea. That said the young actress playing this generation’s Sally is doing a great job. While not imitating Sally it seems she has done her homework- and even some of her intonations can be pictured with the original (and inimitable) Sally saying things just the same way.
I was so sick of the ongoing stories that this change has been quite welcome. And if it actually gives Thomas a storyline all the better. I had been skipping B & B for the most part the last few months- tho’ I do like Quinn- now I’m kind of intrigued.
And I liked the Avants for the most part- the ball was just dropped there…

I would switch the avants for the Spectras anyday. They are the fabric of the show and i could not be more trilled that they are back. I say good bye Rick Maya Nicole Sashe Zende and Ivy and hello Spectras

RJ and CoCo?!?!?!

Yes; I think RJ and CoCo is probably on the horizon. They can double with Thomas and Sally!

I have watched this show from the very beginning. Within the year after Darlene Conley passed away I remember the episode where her death was announced by Eric and Stephanie. Now the character is alive? This is a ridiculous storyline. Bring us something original!

Katelyn MacMullen Celebrates 1 Year Anniversary On GH; Now, What Will Happen When Willow Finds Out The Truth About Wiley?

Since Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) first appeared on the General Hospital canvas as the school teacher who needed to let Charlotte’s (Scarlett Fernandez) parents (Valentin, Nina and Lulu) know of her bullying tactic sat school, the character has become quite intertwined to others in Port Charles.

We eventually learned that Willow shared a dark past with the late Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin), and even had his child, but never told him about it.  Later, Willow seem to get the attention of two young gentlemen; Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and Harrison Chase (Josh Swickard).

As of now, Chase and Willow look to be quite the happy couple.  But, what will happen when Willow learns the devastating truth- that the little boy she gave up -that is being raised by Brad (Parry Shen) and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) isn’t really hers.  In fact, her son died when Brad took Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) baby to replace the baby that died.

In a post on her Instagram, Katelyn MacMullen shared that it’s hard to believe a year has past since her debut on the ABC soap opera expressing gratitude: “It’s been a year since I’ve joined this incredible cast! I love this show so much, and every single person involved. I’m so grateful 🖤 It’s been a pretty crazy ride for Willow so far, and I’ve enjoyed every second of it 🌚 Thank you @generalhospitalabc !! 🙏 #GH #oneyearanniversary”

Chloe Lanier’s New Short Film ‘The Reveal’ Releases First Trailer

As previously reported, Chloe Lanier, the actress who plays naughty Nelle Benson on ABC’s General Hospital, has been busy at work on a special project. And while Nelle is upset having just been denied parole on the ABC soap opera, (something tells us nothing will stop her from getting out of the slammer), Lanier on the other hand has been very excited about her new short film, The Reveal.

The Reveal in which Lanier stars, co-wrote, and co-directed along with her boyfriend, Kevan McClellan also has some very familiar faces along for the ride from Port Charles and Genoa City. That’s because Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Josh Swickard (Chase, GH) are also part of the film.

The action takes place at a gender reveal party for a baby, and according to the loglines of the short: “Zoe and James are a young couple attending their new-age friends gender reveal party. As they attempt to find their place amongst the eclectic group of party guests and friends, unsung wishes and hidden resentments begin to surface within their relationship.”

Watch the trailer from Lanier below.

Then, let us know if you are intrigued to see the short film when its out via the comment section below.

WATCH: Jonathan Jackson + Enation’s New Music Video “The Days Are Evil”

Five-time Daytime Emmy winner from General Hospital, and former Nashville star, Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky, Ex-Avery) has released a new music video for the new single “The Days Are Evil” along with his band Enation.

The music video features shots of Jackson in a very dark incarnation, and the track will also appear on Jackson + Enation’s upcoming album due out later this fall, Ultraviolet Empire.

Jonathan says of the new album: “Our new album, Ultraviolet Empire, is a throwback record. It’s a record we played together live in the studio. Most of the songs are one take -just letting the band play.  It was amazing playing with our co-producer Colin Linden and capturing something so raw and visceral.”

This will be the band’s follow-up to their 2017 album  Anthems for the Apocalypse and their successful 2018 tour in Europe opening for Echo & The Bunnymen,

Check out the music video featuring Jonathan released this week below.

Then, let us know, should Lucky return to Port Charles for the Nurses’ Ball with his band and play a tune off the new album next spring? Will Jonathan come home to GH for a guest appearance? Will you be checking out the new music from him in the coming months? Comment below.
