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?!

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.

Emme Rylan Addresses Reports Of Her Exit From General Hospital & Update On Plans With Family

Several hours ago, Emme Rylan (Lulu) of General Hospital took to her Instagram story to talk directly to her followers, friends and fans about her rumored exit on the ABC daytime drama series, and to share some changes in where she and her family will be living.

At that time, Emme updated everyone that since the landlord sold the house she has been living in with partner Don Money and their three children, that they had not found a suitable home for them to live, in Los Angeles, after their extensive search.  So for now they were going to put their things in storage and go on an extended road trip with the entire family in tow … in a car… under Covid-19 safety protocols with her kids still distance-learning, and that she would be documenting the trip on her Instagram account,

After she shared her original update, she later went back to her Instagram story to clarify her earlier statements after many fans were following up with her asking her even more questions.

 

Rylan shared:  “I am getting a lot of questions that I cannot answer …  people are kind of being confused that maybe I chose to take a vacation or take time-off,  so the only thing I can say is “no, I did not choose this.”  I can’t say anything else.  There you go.   That’s all I am allowed to say.   So, this trip is us taking an unexpected turn of events and turning it into something positive and fun for our family. ”

Earlier on her IG story, Emme addressed the reports of her exit from Port Charles explaining: “I am not in a position to be able to comment on the work stuff, so in terms of General Hospital, I am going to keep that topic quiet. All you need to know is that I love everyone there, we all love each other, I’m okay, and all of your messages of love are amazing … I love you guys so much — but I just can’t talk about it. ”

Then as to her plans with her family she shared: “We, meaning my family and I, have decided to do something completely insane. I have never done anything like this in my entire adult life. We are currently packing up our entire house and putting it in a pod and putting it in storage here in Los Angeles, and with only our suitcases, we are going to go on a Covid-safe, epic road trip.  I have been working every single day, Monday through Friday on a soap opera since 2004?  I have only been in New York and L.A, and I have never really explored life outside of this bubble.”

So, what do you think about what Emme shared with her fans and followers? Comment below.

General Hospital’s Halloween Week Promo Touts Wicked Surprises

Looks like everyone will be on edge this week as Halloween comes to Port Charles.  In the newly-released ABC promo for General Hospital, it reveals that this spooky week of episodes will be a rollercoaster ride, featuring wicked surprises, and killer costumes.

After Epiphany (Sonya Eddy) scolds Franco (Roger Howarth) for having his hand in the candy jar, Anna (Finola Hughes) or is it? … is donning a black witches hat. Jackie (Kim Delaney) is seen opening her door, juxtaposed with Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) saying “trick or treat”. But, is he actually at the door of someone else?

Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) asks Ava (Maura West), “Darling, what are you holding behind your back?” That is revealed to be a knife, but is it Ava who truly has the knife?

 

Meanwhile, Jason (Steve Burton) is looking around in the dark.  Elsewhere, Peter is jumpy.  So much so that Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) utters, “Looks like you’ve seen a ghost.”

Add all that to last Friday’s episode of GH where Carly(Laura Wright) thinks she saw Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) hand come out of her grave and attack her! Is Nelle (Chloe Lanier) going to be proven to be alive? And if so, will she pop up on Halloween and scare the hell out of Carly?

Watch the promo below, then let us know what you think will happen this week on General Hospital via the comment section.
