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?!

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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..

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

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Tells Nina He Knows Exactly Who He Is; Jason & Carly’s Wedding Comes to an Explosive Conclusion

Is it game over for Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros), or does she have another trick up her sleeve to keep Sonny (Maurice Benard) to herself, now that he remembers who is he?

On Friday’s dramatic episode of General Hospital, “Mike” looks to be gone and Sonny has come back in full force complete with a super hero moment escaping from being trapped underneath the beam that had fallen on top of him inside the burning Tan-O.  Sonny makes his escape after inhaling so many fumes, that he needs medical attention and is rushed to the hospital with Nina going along with him.

Inside the hospital, once given the all clear, Phyllis (Joyce Guy) tells Nina, “Mike” is asking for her, while Jax (Ingo Rademacher) pleads to let the doctors handle this situation.  But, Nina heads inside the room to see Sonny.  Then came the dramatic moment that many GH fans were waiting for.  As Nina calls him “Mike, he rips off his oxygen mask in anger and says that his name is Sonny and he remembers everything!  Nina does a pivot, knowing she is caught, and says the name may have have been a fake one, but they cannot deny the way they feel about each other.  She tells him that she honestly loves him and Sonny defiantly tells her NOT to say that.  Meanwhile Jax confirms to Phyllis that Nina always knew that “Mike” was Sonny and hid it from her and Sonny for months!

Back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly’s (Laura Wright) wedding comes to a conclusion! No one interrupts the wedding and the two look lovingly at each other to start their new life together as husband and wife.

After the ceremony, mobsters Ms. Wu, Vincent, and Charles have a moment where she says “be wary of tomorrow”.  Jason and Carly have a moment alone where Jason looks truly in love with Carly now and all of those feelings he had buried for years have now come back to the surface. How will this all play out when Sonny comes back into everyone’s lives, alive and well?

After the reception had ended, Jason and Carly get in their limo to drive away as newlyweds.  She asks Jason what Ms. Wu whispered in his ear at the reception, he says she confirmed something he already knew.  Meanwhile, Vincent and Charles get in their limo.  Charles shares the world is about to be a better place without Carly and Jason in it.

Next, Carly tells the driver to start the car, and we see a bomb device under a car and the chapel blown up as the show comes to its conclusion.

Our bet is that the Novak/Buscema car was blown to bits, not Jarly’s limo thanks to a Wu double-cross, but we shall see next week! Great performances from Maurice Benard, Cynthia Watros, Laura Wright, and Steve Burton throughout this one.

So, what did you think of the moment Sonny told Nina he remembered who he is? What did you think of Jason and Carly’s nuptials? What do you think will happen next? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.

Briana Nicole Henry on Her Decision to Exit GH: “I Decided It Was Time to Move On”

On Monday’s episode, GH viewers learned that Jordan will need to start dialysis and treatment at a specialty clinic in Albany from kidney damage and suffering renal failure.  But on Tuesday, fans of the ABC daytime drama series learned that Briana Nicole Henry has left the show, all her decision, according to her post on Instagram.

A Daytime Emmy nominee this year in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category, Briana shared the news on her departure expressing: “I suppose it is that time isn’t it. As I celebrated my third year of being on General Hospital yesterday, I also watched my last episode as Jordan Ashford air. People kept asking me how it felt to have ended my time on the show, and it wasn’t until yesterday that it really sank in, as I watched Jordan’s goodbye to her family and knew the tears you saw were real tears between not just colleagues but friends. I decided it was time for me to move on from @generalhospitalabc and I got nothing but love and support from everyone involved. Not to mention was given the most beautiful send of that left me quite literally shaken.  I’d like to take a second to thank every single person in my @generalhospitalabc family that helped me make GH my home over the last three years, especially @fvalentinigh . From the crew, to my cast mates to our security guard Emma, there were multiple people on any given day that brought such a smile and warmth to my heart.”

Briana finished her post with, “When I started GH it was my first opportunity as a series regular, and to get the opportunity to throw myself into Jordan for the last three years and work with some truly incredible actors has been an honor. Thanks for holding space for me to grow. I am a better actor because of the time I spent within those walls and will forever be grateful for the way the show nurtured and challenged my ability.  To the fans, it took me a while to win you over, but once you saw my heart you made me feel so much love. I hope I brought something unique and honest to your beloved character of Jordan Ashford, she’s one helluva woman. Until next time loves 👋🏾.”

This will be the second Jordan to exit General Hospital.  The role was originated by Vinessa Antoine, and Henry took it over for the last three years.

So, sad to see Briana leave GH? Should the show recast? Comment below.
