It’s no secret that from all appearances, and from this new blog entry by Devin DeVasquez, (the wife of Ronn Moss) that the former star of The Bold and the Beautiful, where he played Ridge Forrester, will be in the town of Port Charles on Monday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital!

In the entry from Devron’s blog, DeVasquez shared:  “By now everyone knows that Ronn will be appearing on General Hospital.  We thought his debut would be Friday, but didn’t realize the Nurse’s Ball, which is General Hospital’s biggest show extends into next week. So Ronn will debut on Monday May 12th and it’s something I hope you don’t miss because it truly is special. As a soap fan myself, I thought the concept and the storyline of this particular part of the Nurses Ball was very heartfelt, not to mention entertaining. I know many of you are speculating on what exactly Ronn is doing? Many are wondering what character he’s playing or if he’s singing and I for one am amazed at all the response. It seems alot of B&B fans have missed simply seeing Ronn and many GH fans are tired of new characters and want to see more of their favorites, which is understandable.”

She goes on to say later in the piece:  “So I think General Hospital’s marketing campaign was ingenious and they made Ronn an offer he couldn’t refuse, because it was a win/win.  Fans around the world that don’t get GH will get to see this on the web after we do next week and the impact I believe could be massive. GH has already tied Y&R in ratings of women 18-49 and they have been number one in that spot for years. So I think GH could knock them down a peg after this airs.”

So, what do you think of Devin’s comments?  Do you think having Ronn on GH will bring some of CBS Daytime fans to the ABC soap opera?  And with much speculation that Ronn could be Blackie, or be someone else, who is Ronn going to be when he shows up in Port Charles? Or, could he be playing himself as a the lead singer of his band, Player?  Share your thoughts below!

I still think Ronn will be performing at the Nurse’s Ball but that could be as himself or as a character that he’s playing.I have no problem with Ronn Moss been on GH because his fans might tune in to see him and that helps the show.

Ron…like me and K said…will sing ‘Baby Come Back’ for little Spenser to Emma even if he is playing Blackie(unless John Stamos appears) or himself…no matter to me i find the Nurses Ball entertaining and it reminds me of how much i miss primetime variety shows…GH has done a fine job with this one…i went on youtube to watch Dr.O perform again…sometimes she reminds me of Greta Garba mixed with the characters at the castle in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Gloris Leachman in Young Frankestein but in a good way!!!

I am pretty sure that is what is going on! How much fun would it be however if after the song Ronn Moss says and on behalf of Ridge Forrester and Forrester Creations we would like to make a sizeable donation to the Nurse’s ball. I would pay money to see that but I know RC can’t do that but it would be funny I know he gets a lot of grief over his acting but he is still Ridge to me.

Maybe they could call him Forrest and say Ridge Creations making a donation…lol

Stunt casting, short term, good to see him again but wont last long.

i’m all for guest stars, and special appearances ect, i just feel that with GH, under FV and RC, everything is overkill, so its a double edge sword, surely under JFP and RG, GH was in need of some love, but theres a difference between love and smothering, and right now RC and FV are smothering us with to many stunt casting and overpopulated cast, and the proof of that was so apparent when Milo was finally seen on fridays episode. where the heck has he been? he was always one of those reoccurring characters you could count on seeing… Read more »

i would love to know if RC scours the NET and reads any of these types of responses and/or ideas. The only sad thing is .. they have already taped episodes weeks out, and storylines months out. It would interesting to see if he’s bringing in Ronn as an original, because it would be certain to say that if this person is coming in as a replacement, he would be doing an extreme disservice to the fan and audience base.

Ronn Moss was on for about 10 minutes. He sang, he played guitar, he spoke to Spencer and then he left GH. He played Ronn Moss.

I also wish the show would make Anna smarter and maybe she is using Jordan as an undercover agent.That way she can get evidence on the Jeromes from the inside and then bust them.However as police commissioner Anna can’t let her personal feelings for the Jeromes influence her decisions because she may not want it used against her later.As for Carly and Franco Anna knows they have AJ’s phone and may know they wouldn’t have lied unless there was something incriminating about it.So she’ll wait till they come back to Port Charles and confront them.Plus we still don’t know for… Read more »

Luke and Laura are dead! Genie should get a great story but she is weak. Not as an actress but as the character ‘Laura”. She would come back and she would have scenes with all her kids, flirt with Scott, reminisce with Luke and then thats it! Luke and Tracy work well because they two of them have many layers in which to act on. Genie needs to come back with Stephan and declare war on Port Charles and be a bitch or stay away and be remembered for her work on GH in the 80’s.

Maybe someone should tell her that speculating is not the same as missing. I for one haven’t missed over the top one note Ridge at all and am glad they brought in someone with real acting chops to replace plastic ken doll.

I really hope this appearance is just a one day thing on GH.

Thank you! I totally agree, Thorsten Kaye is a much better Ridge than Ronn Moss was. 25 years and nothing ever changed with RM’s terrible acting. Hopefully you’re right and high GH stint is very short-lived because the show doesn’t need another new character or a horrible actor.

Ronn Moss was great on the bold and the beautiful. We will take him back and send that animal (Thorsten Kaye ) back on whichever show he is coming from. He is not a good actor. Ronn Moss was smooth, suave , classy, sophisticated and had chemistry with Kathrine Kelly Lang. It is a shame that Ronn Moss had to leave the Bold and the beautiful.

CLH

Maybe she should get a life of her own so she doesn’t have to be so bitter about his! He left of his own choice so no need for all of her hostility. I’m guessing they both thought he was more indispensable to the show, and the fans, then he actually is.

Agree CLH. She’s doing triple duty. Promoting her husband, taking a shot at the Bells, and shilling for GH. Her entire blog entry could have been written by the ABC PR department; touting how great GH is, when we all know it has major flaws, and comparing it to “Breaking Bad” and “Game of Thrones” which is a reality that we know only lives inside of Carlivati’s head. What an insult to the talent of those productions. If either of those shows were written like GH, I can assure you and Ms. DeVasquez that no one would have ever heard… Read more »

This could be interesting. After reading the entire blog it is entirely possible that Ronn could just be playing himself and Player could be performing at the Nurse’s Ball. I like to keep my mind open to accepting new ideas. Great marketing strategy either way.

Michael The secrecy leading up to his appearance in “The Nurses Ball” storyline is amazing……..The waiting and the knowing that Ronn is going to be on General Hospital is something that everyone is sitting at the edge of their seat now………Whoever Ronn is playing, either a new character or himself will be be something very awesome to see and to see Ronn as a different character than his alter ego from the past 25yrs as “Ridge Forrester” but now people know Ronn as “Ridge Forrrester” from “The Bold And The Beautiful” and “District Attorney John Blackwell” who can be seen… Read more »

I just watched the episodes he was in on The Bay I thought he did fine I do not know what all the fuss is about I can name you a lot of soap actors that play over the top I always thought his style was low key. I just got tired of the scenes with he and KKL where he was constantly stroking her hair I thought on B&B he had better chemistry with Hunter Tylo . Strictly my opinion however.

Apparently the head writer has been tweeting that Monday’s episode will have BOTH Ronn Moss AND Blackie Parrish. Because John Stamos is probably not returning — after all he is the spokesman for Dannon, not Yoplait — will Ronn be playing a one-day re-cast of Blackie Parrish? I hope, not. I hope Ronn is resurrecting Player and will sing “Baby Come Back.” How cool would that be??? But if Ronn is a one-day re-cast of Blackie Parrish (JS’s beloved character), that will not only be NOT cool, but a direct middle finger to John Stamos, with whom the head writer… Read more »

I love Stamos and it would be great to see him and Geary burn scenes again BUT I wouldnt mind if Moss did play the new Blackie. Remember, we havent seen Blackie in thirty years? This could be possible. I hear that Ronn is only signed for a couple episodes and if Blackie reappears, it should be for a long period of time.

Like him or not, Ronn Moss is soap opera royalty and I for one am impressed that GH got him, even if it is just for a day. Call it stunt casting but people will be watching and that’s what matters during the Nurses Ball.

Jimmy
Guest
Jimmy

I don’t know about “royalty” but he’s definitely a familiar face to the genre. However, he was terrible on B&B, idk why they kept him on the show for 25 years but his acting never improved and he was labeled the dress-making scarf-wearer. GH doesn’t need him, the show is doing well already. Ronn can’t act and he is not needed. Hopefully this is a short-term gig.

Maybe RC wants to twist the knife in John Stamos’s back. Blackie Parrish is schedule to attend, but flakes out at the last minutes and Ronn and Player play in his place. Speculating because I enjoy speculating, not necessarily because I am excited. :p

Just like they wrote a few more cheap shots at Frisco delivered by Mr. Marbles. Aimed at Jack Wagner because of his rant against his appearance last year???

I’d like Ronn to stay on!!
I am so sick and tired of the cry babies and their whining over new characters..

New characters bring new stories…. I like new stories
New characters give the vets new stories to be in to keep them active/
the new support the old….

I like new characters.. They keep me awake 🙂

Not to mention; the old ones love their time off and most request it…
without the new peoples our screen would be near empty..

The few old vets can not carry GH on their own ..

Jimmy
Guest

I enjoy new characters too. I’m really looking forward to Nina coming to Port Charles and mixing it up with Silas, Sam, Ava, Madeline and Nathan. Michelle Stafford is a phenomenal actress and will knock her performances out of the park, especially with Donna Mills and Maura West – I’m really looking forward to that.

But Ronn Moss should not stay on GH for long. It’d be nice if this wasn’t happening at all, but a one-day appearance is all Ronn should get, he is not needed.

su0000

Yes!!
New characters start the fires!!
I am looking forward to the ‘new’ Nina/Michelle Stafford too!!

and am happy the ‘new’ Madeline/Donna Mills came to Port Charles, too ..

they will mix it up, a making for great new stories!!

Ronn is just a guest appearance.. It will be fun to have him ..

I agree.New characters help old characters by giving them new stories to play and so it’s not the same scenes or stories over and over again.Plus once upon a time all the current characters on GH were new.

Love new characters and stories. Just don’t want new characters like Ronn that can’t act!

Soooo wish John Stamos would come back, but there are so few characters left that were there when Blackie was that I don’t know how they could fit him long term into the mix.

Wifey is going to ruin this for him if she doesn’t put a sock in it. Not sure who he’s playing, but maybe he’s a Noah recast.

She is so right. The Bold & The Beautiful is a world-wide sensation. This can only increase GH’s exposure and broaden its audience. People should relax about Ronn being recast as Blackie. So what? Blackie hasn’t been seen in like 30 years. John Stamos had his chance last year to reprise the role he originated, but for whatever reason it didn’t work out. I’m all for nostalgia, but sometimes that gets in the way of moving on and giving the current cast a chance. I’m not a fan of RC. What he did to my favorite characters as head writer… Read more »

I agree.Plus maybe the show knew if they approached John Stamos again with the same offer they gave him last year he would have said no again.Plus as you point out and i have said in other posts the character of Blackie hasn’t been on for 30 years.Plus maybe John Stamos hasn’t performed musically for awhile and Ronn Moss has

I want Blackie to be released from prison and it be John Stamos. This is the first character ever to be sentence for 30 years and actually serve 30 years! I would hope Lucy announces that Blackie has been released from prison, was suppose to appear, cancelled, Ronn Moss and Player appear in his place and perform. Where is Blackie? He is impostor Luke!

I am not sure why a return of Blackie Parrish is important or necessary. I love john Stamos as much as the next guy, but some stories as well as some characters should just remain dead. I love GH and its sense of history, but am not thrilled with speed-plotting, lack of comeuppance and redemption for some characters, and the PASSIONS-like atmosphere in Port Charles.

Was watching some of my AS THE WORLD TURNS DVDs this weekend. It may be passé now, but I miss that style of daytime drama.

I actually don’t understand what’s going on here I saw this character in soap opera digest I know he was on bold and beautiful but I don’t understand what the impact is on why he’s in on General Hospital NY or why GH fans care? is it because he’s singing a song? I’m 44 years old and have been watching General Hospital since I’m nine and I do not understand why this guy is making such an impact? This was/is weird to me

I am dying to see Ronn Moss again. As a B&B fan since inception, I adored the romance & ups & downs Of Brooke & Ridge. I am so tired of the current B & B story with Hope & Liam. No one can ever be RIDGE for me. I am a fan not only of the character, but the real people. I hated that RONN decided To depart acting, and so happy you are bringing him back. WHY BB would allow him to depart, while writing for. BROOKE to fall for every man that winks at her, what crappy… Read more »

I wish they would get rid of that Thorston Kaye, who plays Ridge on Bold and Beautiful. I would love to see Ronn Moss come back, to play Ridge. Since he was recast with Thorston, that show has just been miserable to watch. I was an avid B&B fan, for 25 years or more, mostly because of Ronn. I feel sorry for those actresses who have to kiss Kaye. Makes my stomach churn and that greasy hair!! UGH!!!!

A horrible replacement. Bring Ronn Moss back, please!!!

General Hospital

GH Faves Finola Hughes, Ian Buchanan, Brooklyn Rae Silzer, Marc Anthony Samuel In New IGTV Series, ‘Enter Exit’

This week, General Hospital’s Finola Hughes (Anna) and some very good friends and acting partners debuted in a new IGTV series, directed by Hughes amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and it’s a thriller! What else would we expect from the woman who plays super spy Anna Devane on the ABC daytime drama series.

The IGTV (Instagam’s longer video application) series is called, Enter Exit, and there are 11 episodes, and the first one dropped on Monday.  It is  written by TV scribe Matt Boren, and also stars some of Port Charles’ longtime favorites that include: Ian Buchanan (Ex-Duke), Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma) and Marc Anthony Samuel (Felix).

Hughes told SOD how she was inspired to come up with the concept for the show:  “I started to think about, if you’re in lockdown, what would be a narrative where you could act in a vacuum, basically? I first started thinking about what my character would be — a retired (government) agent. And then there’s some reason that I’m retired. And I started to think about stationary shots and walking into your closeup and all those kinds of things. I left (the rest) with Matt; it was basically, ‘Whatever he writes, we’ll do.’ And I just sort of concentrated on how, feasibly, we could do it.”’

Boren, who has been an ardent viewer of GH from its hey day, shared on working off Hughes seeds of an idea to what Enter Exit is about: “In a sense, it’s a local detective thriller that starts out small — and understandably so as season one takes place during the pandemic. However, what we seed throughout these first 11 mini-episodes hints at a show that longs to be on a much larger, more global scale. We were absolutely inspired by ’80s GH — the WSB, the espionage and larger than life stories that were so thrilling, and through Devane/Scorpio/Lavery/Donnelly/Jones, so grounded. Throw that in with some Killing Eve, X-Files and (this will make sense down the line) Stranger Things, and you have a recipe that might be pages away in our cookbook.”

Now check out episode 1 below featuring Hughes and Silzer and make sure to follow Finola’s IG account for all-new installments of Enter Exit.

So, what do you think about the concept of the series? Excited to see more? Let us know via the comment section.

Days Of Our Lives

GH’s Maurice Benard and DAYS Kassie DePaiva Named “Power Performances of the Week”

Two daytime vets in two very opposing types of storylines delivered emotional and riveting work during their scenes.  First on General Hospital, Maurice Benard (Sonny) in yet another stellar knockout performance in the Alzheimer’s storyline; showed the anguish and pain of a son trying to come to terms with his father’s ultimate fate.

This week saw Sonny originally deciding to try to prolong Mike’s (Max Gail) life by having him placed on a feeding tube, but soon after seeing the fate of Yvonne, another Alzheimer’s patient, and a talk with Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Sonny changed course, and did what’s best for Mike, not for himself, and decided to let his father die with dignity and with as least suffering as possible.

We don’t think there could have been a dry eye in the house when Sonny visited Mike’s hospital bedside, and told him that it’s OK for his dad to let go, and not have to stick around for him.  Max Gail, as per usual, was also so touching in these scenes.

Benard did not overplay a beat, and for anyone who has had a parent die of this dreadful disease, you could relate to what Sonny went through in the more than capable hands of this two-time Daytime Emmy winner.

Over on Days of our Lives, what a return for Kassie DePaiva in her role as Eve Donovan! This time, she has come back unhinged and at an emotional rock bottom, so much so that she had abducted Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson), had him taken to an abandoned warehouse, strapped him up, tortured him with an assist from Dr. Rolf’s protege, Vincent (Michael Teh), and came up with this twisted plot to have Ben turn back into the “necktie serial killer” and kill his bride, Ciara (Victoria Konefal).

Why, you say? Well, because Eve’s daughter, Paige was one of Ben’s victims and it has been eating Eve alive this whole time. She is a mama grieving for her daughter so deeply that she can’t understand why Paige is dead and he is left on earth to roam around free and find love and happiness… and we find out she was gutted when Ben got a last-minute reprieve when he was recently sentenced to death by lethal injection.

DePaiva played this arc of Eve’s story as a soapalicious villain, but when you really deconstruct it, Eve is just in so much pain… and all of that came through even in the darkest of scenes.  And … there is yet more to come!

Kudos to Maurice and Kassie for being named Michael Fairman TV’s “Power Performances of the Week”.

So, do you agree with our picks for Maurice and Kassie? What did you think of their work? Comment below.
