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… Read more »

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?

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. 🙂

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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!

General Hospital Has No Immediate Plans to Recast the Role of Jason Morgan Following Steve Burton’s Departure

According to a report from Variety, ABC’s General Hospital is not planning on recasting the role of Jason Morgan at this time, following the exit of Steve Burton.

The two-time Daytime Emmy winning star was let-go from the soap after not adhering to their Covid-19 vaccine mandate.

The mandate went into effect on November 1st and in story, the series wrote Burton out, but still left wiggle room for the character to return.

Jason was buried under a rubble when a cave collapsed on top of him, while he was trying to apprehend arch-villain, Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his exit announcement on Instagram, Burton did express: “Maybe one day if these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan.”  Steve had played the role of Jason since 1991, but with a four-year break at Y&R, before returning to the role in 2017.

Now whether down the line, GH does eventually recast Jason remains to be seen.

So, it looks like Jason will be off the canvas for awhile, and Port Charles will continue to grieve for him.

So, what are your thoughts? Should GH leave Jason off the canvas? Should they recast down the line?  Comment below.

She was the most positive influence on my life. I will remember her laughter, her joy, her dignity as she navigated the challenges that she faced. Never an ill word about anyone crossed her lips. Her ability to forgive left me speechless at times. She truly was a force of nature and as we got closer in my adult life, I leaned on her more and more as my life counselor and the person I knew that lived and loved to the fullest. My sympathies go to her loving husband @marcrosennyc who, for the last 37 years, made her life so wonderful and joyous. Love you mom forever ♥️ #ArleneDahl #Moviestar #legend #mom #RIP”
