It’s great that CBS broadcasts the awards. I thought the awards were fast-paced, but needed more star power on stage with the presenters. There were so many extraordinary talents in attendance. I would have liked to have seen Finola, Maura and Cynthia present an award. I saw Gio attending the awards and would have been nice to see him present an award with Joss and Trina. From B&B, Katherine Kelly Lang, Don Diamond and John McCook from Y&R, Tracey Bregman and Peter Bergman. The cameraman didn’t show the stars of DOOL too much, but seeing Robert Scott Wilson and Suzanne Rogers would have been a treat.

Yay Michelle Melody And Ed

So is DOOL being omitted because their on peacock. This is wrong.

Congratulations to Thorsten Kaye. I don’t watch B&B. I’m familiar with him from his other daytime roles. His daughter, McKenna, looks just like her mother, the wonderfully talented Susan Haskell.

I enjoyed the show. Loved the tribute to Melody Thomas Scott and her husband. I wished they’d show more of the actors/actresses in the audience. Everyone looked beautiful and handsome.

Ironic and sad that GH let go of the Emmy winning writing team of Dan and Chris. Who is really writing the show today anyway?

As of now, Elizabeth Korte is the sole head writer. Material with Patrick Mulcahey airs until mid-summer, per press announcements.

What’s “ironic” is that GH won. The show was unwatchable; the never-ending Nina bashing, Willow’s contempt for Nina for literally no reason while she “loved Carly dearly” it was two-years worth of an emotional abuse story of Nina. Then they wrote the back-to-back fatal illness stories; one depressing, tragic, journey after another of someone having to deal with the fact that they’re dying, a journey the viewer had to go on hoping that the character had been misdiagnosed. And let’s not forget Sasha and Brando’s brain dead baby, then Sasha losing Brando. Escapism Gh was not.

As for the new writer Mulcahey? I think they made a big mistake letting him go. Though way too many changes both in characters, and career changes of the characters, attitude toward Sonny was ridiculously all at once and out-of-the-blue, the stories have gotten better, more characters are featured rather than all-Carly-all-the-time, Diane and Alexis got their banter back, Michael Easton FINALLY got to show his acting chops and has a story instead of picking up the pieces of Elizabeth’s life…Cody and Sasha seem to be moving forward, Gregory and Tracy were written beauifully, and chances are we still would have had Gregory the character and the actor if the death squad of Dan and Chris didn’t give him their latest fatal illness.

I didn’t watch the Emmys but I’m shocked that GH won.

I too was shocked at all the GH wins. The pace is slower than a sloth after mating day. Sweep-month excitement over great stories and mini-disastrous drama is now a thing of the past. Great Sweeps months Feb May & Nov are basically non-existent. I cannot even remember what happened in February – in May the only big thing – Gregory died.

The Cody/Mac DNA story has been going on for around 2 years (YES I KNOW MAC HAS BEEN OUT – but it should have been resolved way before that) – it seems any story arc starting today in 2024 the fans will have to expect it not to be resolved for 2 years (that’s 2026/2027)
Life is way too short to wait that long!!! We could all die before GH resolves a storyline these days.

Any couple being introduced takes so long – (the uber-slow burn of Cody and Sasha) which makes the audience lose interest. Brooklyn and Chase are nearly not as exciting today as they would have been a year ago. Many fans stated how bored they were with the nuptials. This has more to do with the back and forth of their 2-3 year relationship than it does with the couple. Those two broke up and got back together like a game of musical chairs.

So fans seem to want Dex to end up as Jason’s son – Jason might be gone in 2 years by the time the writing team gets around to it.

“Make em Wait” the old GH saying for writers – is not working anymore.

The pace is slower than a sloth after mating day.” LOL! Agree with all your points and the hilarious way you put it. I needed that laugh. 😉

Very shocked at the GH writing win. Interestingly, GH has not won in 15 years and the year that was predominantly filled with replacement writers won.

Hmmm – I’d be kind of mad if I was one of those replacement writers not getting an award.

This was from material written last year and non-union writers don’t get nominated for Emmy’s.

General Hospital’s Jophielle Love Talks On Violet’s Emotional Scenes with Finn, the Loss of Gregory, and Taylor Swift

During General Hospital’s recent episodes surrounding the death of Gregory Chase (Gregory Harrison), who succumbed to complications from ALS, many in the cast delivered touching performances; including Jophielle Love (Violet).

In story, Violet learns of her grandfather’s passing when she comes home from school and her father, Finn (Michael Easton) sits her down to explain that Gregory passed away in the middle of the night. Violet’s reaction was one of devastation and tears.

Michael Fairman TV caught with Jophielle on the red carpet at the recent 51st annual Daytime Creative Arts and Lifestyle Emmy Award ceremonies, where she was a nominee for Best Original Song for the song she co-wrote, “Shine.” The track was first heard back on a December 2023 episode of the ABC daytime drama series and is currently available on Spotify and other music streaming platforms.

When talking about the departure of Gregory Harrison, and Violet’s reaction to her grandpa’s passing, Love shared, “Well, I was very tired from the taping of the three-day wedding, so I already had the tears in me. I knew that I was always going to see him (Gregory Harrison) in real life, but I was also very, very sad he was leaving the show. He was such a delight to work with.”

When Violet saw how difficult it was for her on-screen dad, Finn, to cope with with the death of Gregory, Love shared, “It’s hard for Violet, but Michael and I, we still see each other and he’s always happy (in real life). But, those scenes were hard. I was comforting him.”

Receiving her first Daytime Emmy nomination as songwriter was a thrill for Jophielle: “Well first of all, I was jumping up and down and Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) came and told me while I was on set. I was just so excited.”

Photo: JPI

Since pop superstar, Taylor Swift, started at a very young age as a singer and a songwriter, does Love see herself as a mini-Taylor? Jophielle emphatically stated, “I’m a mini Me“.  As to what she thinks of the record-setting Swift’s music, and if she likes her work. Love shared, “Yeah, yeah … so, so…”

What did you think of Jophielle’s performance during the passing of Gregory? And her comments here on Gregory Harrison, Michael Easton and Taylor Swift? Comment below.

General Hospital Issues Statement Condemning Racist Attacks Directed at Tabyana Ali

After continued online racist comments directed at General Hospital cast member, Tabyana Ali (Trina), the series has issued its own statement on the situation across all of its social media platforms on Tuesday.

Ali, who back on June 9th took to X to stand up to the racist remarks sent her way, has been facing the same situation since joining the soap opera back in 2022 as a recast in the role of Trina Robinson.

Throughout her time on the ABC soap opera, Tabyana had been one-half of the popular young love story of “Sprina” along with Nicholas Chavez (ex-Spencer).

Now General Hospital is standing up and alongside Ali, with its statement which read: “General Hospital does not tolerate hatred or bigotry of any kind. Racism has no place in Port Charles. GH is for everyone.”  Since its posting, the ability to comment has been turned off on the GH Instagram, Twitter and Facebook accounts.

While the statement does not specifically name Ali, according to Soap Opera Digest, ABC has been communicating with Ali and her representatives about how best to navigate the situation. Once the statement was issued, Ali took to X and said, “I appreciate you so much ABC/GH.”

Photo: ABC

Back on June 9th, Ali opened up about the “hate” directed at her and then added, “To anyone that hates me, that’s absolutely fine. I don’t know you and you don’t me, but regardless I’m sending you peace, safety and prosperity.”

Several of Ali’s GH co-stars have posted the statement on their Instagram accounts including: Kirsten Storms (Maxie), Jacqueline Grace Lopez (Blaze) and Kate Mansi (Kristina).

What do you think of General Hospital’s statement that racism has no place in Port Charles? Are you glad they stood up for Tabyana, and moving forward for any form of racism related to the show and its cast? Comment below.

John J. York Shares His Emotional Journey from Cancer Back to ‘General Hospital’ with ‘Good Morning America’

General Hospital fans are counting the hours till tomorrow, and the June 19th episode of the ABC daytime drama series, where they will see the highly-anticipated return of longtime veteran, John J. York (Mac Scorpio).

York has been through a physical and emotional rollercoaster fighting two blood cancers, myelodysplastic syndromes and multiple smoldering myeloma, and receiving a lifesaving blood stem cell transplant after months of trying to locate a match donor.

Now, on the other side of it, York sat down with Good Morning America this week ahead of his first episode back on GH, where not only do we see the moment he steps through the door at Maxie’s (Kirsten Storms) and is welcomed by her, Georgie, Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) and he will also meet the new young children playing the role of Bailey James, twins Riley and Miley Polonki.


Speaking with tears in his eye on coming back to work at the set of GH, York expressed, “Everybody has been very welcoming. Very welcoming, and here I go right off the bat (begins to tear up). I can’t tell you how nice it’s been to get the support that I have gotten.”

When asked by GMA’s Zohreen Shah, what he missed the most about being away from GH, while undergoing treatment, York shared, “I just felt so attached that I didn’t feel I missed anything. I just took a little break and a little vacation, I guess, and had to go through something, and now we’re here kind of on the other side of it.”

The story for Mac heats up on today’s June 18th episode of GH, when in a preview for the show, Cody (Josh Kelly) talks to Sasha (Sofia Mattsson) and finally admits he is having regrets about the time he wasted with Mac, after seeing how Chase (Josh Swickard) has been grieving the loss of his father, Gregory.  Will he fess up when Mac steps back into action and tell him that he is his biological son? Stay tuned.

Check out John’s emotional appearance on Good Morning America below. Are you looking forward to seeing Mac back in action on GH starting tomorrow? Comment below.
