ABC comedy sitcom star Cristela Alonzo from the series named after her, Cristela (Fridays at 8:30PMEST) will be seen on an upcoming very special Valentine’s Day episode of General Hospital, it was announced today by the network.

Alonzo is admittedly a long time fan of the daytime drama series, and so the producers and writers have worked her into the story where she will play Port Charles’ Assistant District Attorney Natalia Rodriguez, who works for District Attorney Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner).  In story, while at the PCPD, she has some questions for Det. Nathan West (Ryan Paevey) regarding a recent break-in.  Realizing it is Valentine’s Day, they later open up about their loved ones.

In addition as previously announced, Baby Daddy duo Derek Theler and Melissa Peterman will also guest star on the Valentine’s episode as well with Derek playing a colleague of Dr. Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson), and Melissa playing an old friend of Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCiero) from Bensonhurst. 

What do you think about Cristela making an appearance in Port Charles as Assistant DA Natalia Rodriguez?  The upcoming GH Valentine’s Day episode? Comment below!

Because having HER own show on ABC is not enough?

I hate stunt casting. I still remember how terrible Katie Couric was when she was on to show her fun side before the launch of her canceled talk show.

What is wrong with using some of the soap actors they already have?!

yaaa!
ABC having crossovers of Cristela and Baby Daddy is a very good sign that ABC is investing in GH and wants it to prosper ..

It is promoting General Hospital ! Exposing it to millions..

The guests will be a in and out ….(nothing to be upset over..

Katie wasnt an actor…of course Ryan Paevey isnt one too…lol…seriously, this Cristela is an actress and will probably do a better job than Katie…i see nothing wrong with this so-called stunt casting…its an actor doing an acting job and its good publicity for both shows…besides many actors from movies, primetime, music and stage have made appearances in daytime soaps…if a daytime star can do primetime or a movie whatever and we can congratulate them it should be no different if someone who does primetime or something else in the entertainment industry makes an appearance on daytime tv…in this case its just an actor taking on just another acting job…sure, id like to see many GH actors on more especially LC as Monica but like i said there is nothing wrong with someone making a guest appearance…this is only a short visit…its not like they are taking someone else’s place…this has been done for years with Carol Burnett, Liz Taylor, Sammy Davis just to name a few…no one called it stunt casting…maybe its a publicity gimmick…no big deal…every show morning, noon or night do what they can to attract fans to their show…thats Hollywood!…Peace!!!

I know she’s really funny, jimh. If she can bring some of that humor with her, then I guess it’s ok. She can’t be any worse than some.

Amen to that, Chrystie! Sounds about as interesting as that ridiculous Shonda stunt awhile back. If we must have some ABC stars visit Port Charles, how about Ioan Gruffudd from “Forever?” Now THAT would add some excitement…or even “Richard Castle” himself, ex OLTL-er, Nathan Fillion! Then maybe I could be on-board with this annoying habit of foisting the network’s pets upon GH. (And while we’re at it, if ABC is so keen to send their prime timers over to the show, then ship Jonathan Jackson from Nashville to reprise his Lucky for a bit.)

i think its great, look, abc family and abc primetime stars appearing on abc daytime sister show they are part of the abc family! i personally think it would of been better for them to play the characters they play on their shows, and play into the characters existing in the same “universe” like marvel does with their shows and movies. I personally don’t think the three actors are big enough to attrack any one from their shows to sample GH, but if they would of play their characters then maybe their “viewers” from their shows would of sample GH just to follow their characters.

Playing their own characters would be a legal matter..
ABC is crossing the ‘actor’ not the character..
They can not use the characters only the actors..

jimh(leave it to beaver)

Both shows are abc…it wouldnt be a big issue if she played her character…look at gh…several characters from oltl came over to gh and played their characters with no legal problems…oops…my bad…guess there was legal issues or PP wouldnt have taken abc to court…lol

Whatever it takes to get GH publicity. I’m sure Inside Edition or Entertainment Tonight will have something on the crossover.

Vinessa Antoine Reveals She And General Hospital Have Parted Ways; After Landing Primetime Series Lead

After the fantastic bit of casting news for actress Vinessa Antoine  (Jordan Ashford) over the weekend, today, via her social media accounts, Vinessa has addressed her future with General Hospital.

As viewers know, Vinessa has been cast as the drama series lead in the new CBC production of Diggstown, and it is groundbreaking making her the first black actress to star in a series on the legendary Canadian broadcasting network,   Originally it was presumed that Antoine would go recurring on GH, while she was away filming, but that is not the case as she revealed in her heartfelt message today.  She and GH have mutually parted ways.

Vinessa’s statement: “There are so many people that God put into place who are directly and indirectly responsible for my time at General Hospital.  You know who you are. I thank you. I came into this world as an artist. My job is to create and inspire. I hope that I did that a little in playing #JordanAshford.

I believe that I have taken her as far as I can.  To clarify, as negotiations for #Diggstown were underway, although I am open to stay and play in Port Charles, I was told by my reps that GeneralHospital felt that my character would be off the canvas for too long for me to continue playing her.

With that, we decided to mutually part ways.  It’s time to make room for more women of color in prominent roles on television. I’m grateful to assist in that by starting this new chapter in my journey. I hope you’ll all come along. I feel blessed. Be well. xo”

An ABC rep told Soap Opera Digest that the role of Jordan is being recast.

So what do you think of Vinessa leaving GH for good? Share your thoughts via the comment section below and let’s wish her much success!

GH’s Vinessa Antoine Lands Primetime Series Will Make Canadian TV History!

Fantastic news for General Hospital favorite, Vinessa Antoine (Jordan)! The talented actress had landed the leading role in the primetime Canadian series, Diggstown!

The legal drama is scheduled to air this fall.  In Diggstown, Antoine will play Marcie Diggs, a top corporate lawyer who decides to dedicate herself to a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

This casting news will make Vinessa a part of Canadian TV history as the first Black Canadian actress to star in a prime-time drama on legacy network television, CBC.

Antoine spoke to the Toronto Star about her starring role, “When I first read the script I was really attracted to the notion that she was a corporate lawyer and she believed in the system. And when that crashed for her, life nudged her to do something extraordinary. And because I’m a woman of color, so many things connected. She’s complex, not stereotypical, and that’s refreshing.”

However as suspected, and according to the Toronto Star: “General Hospital fans will not be happy to learn that Antoine, who has been with the show since 2014, will no longer be a series regular when she starts shooting Diggstown in August.”

So, excited to hear Vinessa has been cast in a leading primetime series?  Comment below!
