Crystal Chappell Asks: Who Should Ani End Up With In Season Five Of Venice … Gina, Lara, Or Neither Gal?

Courtesy/OpenBookProds

Crystal Chappell and company are gearing up to shoot season five of the hit web series, Venice.  Today, the series released a video featuring Crystal asking fans of the show their input into what should happen next in the life of Ani played by Chappell’s longtime scene partner, Jessica Leccia!

Crystal related: “Ani has had a lot of problems, and all relatable things. We have all struggled with self-esteem, weight issues, family issues most certainly, and she is at a critical point in her life.  We hit those points, and we have to make decisions, and she needs to decide whether she is going to marry Lara (Nadia Bjorlin), or give Gina (Chappell)  another chance, or just start fresh.  I want good things for Ani and I have a very protective energy around her.   I need your help. What would you like to see happen to Ani this season? What is best for her on Venice?

So with that, watch the video with Crystal after the jump! Then let us know: Is it time for Gina and Ani to get back together once and for all? Do you think Ani could ride off into the sunset and be happy with Lara?  Should she walk away from both of these women and start fresh, perhaps with a new love, or even just be by herself for awhile? Share your thoughts below!

ani should dump Lara and stay with Gina who really loves her and has not manipulated her in any way to be with her.

Indeed, get rid of the alcoholic!

Lara and ani Gina hurt ani so many times

They both have hurt Ani and they both have their faults but Gina seems more genuine. Gina and Ani getting back together though is probably more predictable cause she is always running back to Gina

if Ani goes back with either Gina or Laura, it would stir up trouble, it all depends on which one would have a greater climax, or cause more drama

Ani and Gina need to get back together and as well the burnt letter that Laura burned ani must find out somehow what it said as it will prove even more how much Gina does love her. Love the show

ang

as crazy as this sounds Ani need to stay with Laura and Gina will find a new love that will totally understand her and give her all she needs in life and Gina will ask her to marry her. Then Ani finds out about the letter that Laura destroyed and that she was the one to hit Gina. Laura life start to roll out of control and Ani is left alone poundering why she didn’t go with her heart all along. Eventually Ani and Gina will once again be a partner once Gina wife pass away from a illness(cancer)

Maybe there should be new relationships for all these ladies. They would long for each other from a far and drag others into the hot mess of their lives.

I love Lara though my heart is leaning toward Gina and Ani, and I don’t want Venice to end. Venice is like the webs version of Homeland, Nurse Jackie, or the networks How To Get Away With Murder, Scandal, The Fosters, or Empire. It’s fun to look forward to 10 or 12 weeks of tight writing and wonderful acting unfolding good stories that leave you wanting more.

Gina and Ani , all the way! I loved their chemistry and the near supernatural connection they have. It wod be so cool if they did like a sub plot that they find out from Gina’s Aunt Gaia ,that Gina and Ani have had past lives together and something or someone has stopped them from having a happy ending and this life is their last chance at true happiness.

ani loves gina and gina loves ani,they wouldn’t be happy without each other..i think ,tgina finally has gotten over her fear of being hurt again and is ready for a commitment, they are so good together

It should always be Gina and Ani. They were, are and always will be part of each other starting from Otalia. Lara is beautiful but she shouldn’t have to lie and manipulate to get Ani to be a part of her life. It all should be natural and that’s what Gina and Ani have. Everyone goes through trials and tribulations in life, but those two always manage to end up back with each other, through thick and thin. They deserve their happiness together.

Shane

I agree! It would suck if it ends any other way

I go for LARA AND ANI. The two should end up to together rather than Ani choosing Gina instead. Ani should think that it’s Lara who has been there for here after she had had messed up relationship with Gina who only dumped her (Ani) again and again. Ani can make sure that Lara would love only her and no one else but her though the only problem that Lara has is being alcoholic which just slightly hurts Ani’s feelings. So ANI, PLEASE CHOOSE LARA AND YOU’LL SURELY BE HAPPY.

Ani should be with Gina season 5 is the last season of venice the series.Will hate to see the end of a very good show it shows people about love and family

I’ve watched from season one and at first I would have said Gina and Ani.
However, Lara as a character captivates me. She seems so put together even when we all pretty much can assume that her life is about to crash. In spite of all the things that their relationship has been through she loves Ani and regardless of catching Ani kissing Gina right before the wedding and ignoring the fact that she was about to run away with her; I’d say that’s love.
Lara has been good for Ani from the beginning and Lara has always been there for Ani and puts her before herself. I honestly wonder why she’s sticking around for a girl who is still not over her ex so it’s no question that she does indeed love her. I think most of all that Ani owes it to Lara and hers relationship to for now let Gina go and if Gina really does love Lara she would be a little more respectful because honestly this was not the time or place and Gina owes Ani more than this.

I agree with you. Lara is best for Ani.
Pls let Lara and Ani have a happy ending.

Ani loves Gina In a way more intense way than she loves Lara,,, Gina hurt ani yes but she deserves a second chance, they need to make a fresh start ,because its Lara’s fault their not together she burnt Gina’s love letter… If ani had known about that she wouldn’t have accepted Lara’s proposal

Gina and Ani belong together. Lara is so insecure she burnt a love letter to Ani and consistently lied about her sobriety. Lara shouldn’t be with anyone until she can move past her own insecurities. By far, Lara deserves a new start but does not deserve Ani.

Beverly
Beverly

You, have made a valid point
Lara does love Ani, what Gina,
has put Ani through, a smart
choice to do is move on, a
toxic relationship, never get
better, its a matter of pride,
thinking that Ani could not
move forward without her. A
Person like Ani, can not be
trusted. Ani and Lari!

I love all your comments, but lets be honest here every relationship has to have its ups and downs and that is exactly what Anni and Gina has gone through. It suck sometimes when you know that two people are meant to be together, but things just keep on pulling them apart. It has been a very long and bumpy road for the two of them but they make each other complete and the writers should give Anni and Gina their happy ending. After all No matter what as long as the love between them is true then love should win for a change, and I believe that they do love each other…..they just need time to remember why they love each other and then slowly find their way back to each other. Sorry Lara but it the truth and there’s no reason to scheme and try to confuse Anni, in fact I believe if she did’nt burn the letter that Gina wrote to Anni it would have probably been Gina standing at the alter and not her. Please give Gina and Anni their happy ever after….Thank You.

Although I love the “hot and sexy’ Lara, I want more of the “hot and steamy” that Ani & Gina bring. They have an incredible onscreen chemistry……absolutely- Ani & Gina;)

If I am Lara, I’ll give up Ani, I dont accept my bride look at two directions. If her heart still Gina, Lara should give up.

honestly i would love for Gina and Ani to be together but my understanding Ani does love Gina with her heart but she is scared of being hurt again but at the same time being with Lara can go either way because after experiencing a slap and push against the wall it cause confusing of love or hate.. Ani doesn’t deserved that but no love worth that physical or emotional pain..Ani should take time for her self before chose her infinty soulmate..love is unconditional and Gina and Ani have it but how much are they willing to give to make it work..

Ani and Gina. But I feel there needs to be a healing process. She shouldn’t jump straight into a relationship with Gina. They should start slow, enjoy the fresh start of a second chance. They’ve both been through a great deal. Let them learn each other all over again. Rediscover what made them fall in love in the first place.

LANI ALL THE WAY

LANI for PUSH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I so love Ani! —being together with Lara; and i believe there are thousands who feel the same way who could not reach out this site because they do not know there’s a question like this. Good vibes for all. 🙂 If there’ll be a little twists, fine… but at least “LANI” is forever. 🙂
I love you, Ms. Jessica! Cuddles! Hope this reaches you out! <3

Ok so I’ve watched the love story unfold from season one to the interruption of the wedding. From watching I think Ani is toxic and needs to figure her stuff out. She was with Laura but was still talking and comforting Gina, not cool. You’re in a relationship with one person not the person you’re with and your ex. Yes what happened between Laura and Ani was not cool and Laura is paying for it, and Ani is healing but they are working through it. Gina dumped Ani time and time again, then when she ended up with someone she was happy with then she all of a sudden wanted Ani back. I like Ani with Laura. Laura was there for Ani giving her confidence boosts, helping her, comforting her, and staying by her side even though she knows Ani has the Gina issue. Laura and Ani all the way. They have great chemistry, I don’t think I would watch anymore if Laura was not on the show anymore. She is so captivating.

It always feels great being in love with someone but that person (Gina) we love is not always meant to be the one to be in a relationship with. Ani should cherish the time and remain friends with Gina seeking someone that loves being in love with her. Everyone has flaws but it’s phenomenal to see recovery through each struggle so Lara may deserve another chance once she tells all. Wouldn’t close the door to other possibilities.

Angie
Angie

Gina and Ani please!!! Its time for them to be happy together starting fresh. Lara is a mess and manipulated Ani by burning the letter or Ani would have ran back to Gina then. Their love is deep and most people never get that. Its time for them now

believer

I think Ani needs a break from both of them Gina not trustworthy and Lara is insecure. Gina needs to prove herself to Ani . Ani needs to find out what she’s really wanting in a relationship, she shouldn’t have to work so for it. she did with both relationships. In the end i think it should be Gina and Ani . i would be disappointed if it ended any other way.

Ks

I think ani should take a break from both women and she should focus on herself find out what she likes and woman and maybe for the new road she meet someone Jean and perhaps growing up ready to be with her I make a solid commitmen

Sco4piousloyalty

Honestly I believe in true love as well as second chances
and change but separating that kind of love would be devastating
to watch but also a crazy twist. And the other incredible twist
would be ani find out all about Lara after they were married.
And her desperately trying to find gina before it’s too late but
hey that’s just me I write but I’m not an Emmy award-winning author
LOL…

I can’t stand the way Gina continues to hurt Ani, and while Lara is not perfect she should stay with her. She deserves a true love albeit not always perfect but one of respect mutual adoration support and that’s true. We all have our demons and this whole Gina mess has been horrible on Lara. I get why she’s stuck in her dark place. Ani is Laras perfect whole and vice versa. She doesn’t need Gina who sleeps around and uses people for het benefit. Sucks she realized too late that she had a good thing going with ani and effd it up but it’s not fair to destroy Ani again bye running get chance at happiness with Lara

Worst case let Ani start fresh.

Ani should give Gina another try. Gina has never lied to Ani and Lara has. Plus, Ani still loves Gina. Ani doesn’t really trust Lara.

Julie

Lara and Ani for sure! Great couple! But..if you will..you could have Ani choose Gina..and then have Ani realize she has made the biggest mistake of her life..begging Lara to take her back after she realises that Gina only wanted her to win and breakes Ani’s heart yet again. ( Gina only wants what she can not have )

Danpir

Gina and Ani!!!-The only couple that has onscreen chemistry. Lara is simple only wrong and an alcoholic. Plus I don’t feel any chemistry between Lara and Ani. Most of us are watching this for finally experiencing a happy ending between Ani and Gina! The writers want that to happen als well. At least that’s what I saw…And of course Ani needs to learn the truth about Lara’s dishonesty (letter, hit-and-run, lies, etc.). She needs to learn about Gina’s attempts to fight for her love and Lara’s failures. But only after she decided to not marry Lara

Ani tiene que quedarse con Gina, porque el verdadero amor no olvidamos.

I vote for Ani and Gina! Her relationship with Lara is about safety more than anything. Gina is her true love and love is hard sometimes but when you give into it, it is amazing.

Rachael H

I believe that LARA and ANI should definitely be endgame. I believe that LARA will always love Ani and not leave her or hurt her like Gina did. LARA and Ani have amazing chemistry, I just don’t see it with Gina, don’t see them having a great future.

Trulov

I would Love… Love to see Lara and Ani make it to the end. Please don’t punish Lara by ending her relationship just because she is a hot mess right now. Instead prove that the love Lara and Ani have for each other is enough to make them last a lifetime. Let love prevail finally!!! Sorry Gina, the past has passed…

Defintely Gina and Ani together! Lara was deceitful and hid too many things from Ani! Lara is like the Countess in the Sound of Music hiding a letter from the Captain! Please,please let it be Ani and Gina. They have real life chemistry. Lara needs to grow up and go to AA!

Terri

Gina and Ani. Will be real unhappy if it doesn’t end that way. But only if Gina treats her well and respects and truly cherishes the relationship. I really liked the balance of the Otalia relationship. They both had different strengths and were great together.

CW’s Batwoman TV Series Looking For Out Lesbian Actress To Play Title Role

In some intriguing casting news, the upcoming Batwoman series currently in development for The CW will feature TV’s first gay superhero character that is a series lead.

But on top of that, news today via TVLine has that the series is seeking an out lesbian actress to play the title role of Batwoman aka Kate Kane.  They are looking for an actress ages 25-29 of any ethnicity.

As to the log lines of the series, here’s what was released: “A wealthy socialite who calls Gotham home, Batwoman’s Kate Kane is described as ‘armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind,’ while physically she is a ‘highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence.’ But don’t call her a hero yet.  In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.”

Look for Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television to helm the development deal.  Caroline Dries, an out lesbian, will be the head writer. She is best known for her work on The Vampire Diaries.

Batwoman/ Kate Kane will be first seen this fall in a four-way crossover event between ArrowThe FlashSupergirl and Legends of Tomorrow with the goal for the character to land her own series.

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!
