Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Knots Landing favorite, Donna Mills (Ex-Abby) is on her way back to Port Charles.

Donna will reappear on General Hospital this month as Madeline Reeves, the murderess sister of Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati), and mother to Nina (Michelle Stafford), and the woman who was the legal mother to the late Nathan West (Ryan Paevey).

According to EW. Mills will appear briefly. Donna last appeared on GH in September of 2015, when GH fans saw that Madeline was sent to prison for the murder of Silas Clay (Michael Easton).  Donna first appeared in the role back in March of 2014.

So, how do you think Madeline will pop back up on the canvas, especially given the latest developments of Obrecht and Nina? Share your theories in the comment section below,.

im glad. WE LOVE U DONNA MILLS.
i miss her. so much.

I have always thought that Nina’s child is alive, hidden away by Madeline.

Celia
Celia

Oh, mike….you have no idea how I second that! ….Or, maybe you do…..I still maintain Kiki is Nina’s child. …..I never stopped saying it!!!!….inserting it here and there.
However, your point ( that MadMaddie has him/her) would make as good a story line as Kiki’/.

Jimh
Jimh

I always thought Nelle looked more like Nina’s daughter…maybe it is Kiki and their will be a custody battle for her-why not-lol

Celia
Celia

Oh, Jimmy, my friend….we could belabor this until two Sundays come together.
Just as agreeing with Lynn, earlier today…..the baby looking like a Corinthos? That is impossible, but looking like Morgan who is a Corinthos makes sense in the soap world. Do the PTB think anything out? So I put their thinking cap on and thought….ok, it can be.
As far as a custody battle…hmmm…Kiki is too old: she’s her own custodian.
I still believe she is Nina’s. If I say it long enough; they will listen. LOL….look at them; tall and reedy…..Silas not tall enough; unless one of the parents were tall ( as Nina)…..Ava? …..completely different body shape.
I remember when you proposed Nelle being Nina’s daughter. I did agree with you because I thought it was a fantastic idea–twins, anyone?…..better than Nathan or Peter being Faison’s sons. He was a little twerp….Peter, even taller than Nathan….and, while Liesl was perfect as Nathan’s Mom, Anna as Peter’s?…not so much… It would have made more sense if Faison had been a tall man…..or Anna a tall woman…..genetically, it doesn’t jive, does it?

Well,her character is still in prison, so perhaps Nina goes to visit her mom. Or,Obrecht is caught&sent to the same prison as Donna Mills’character is in.Remember,they are sisters.

Or she is questioned about her whereabouts, or where she might go.Don’t forget Madeline still has family there, her niece Britt, who would know more about dear old mutter.

Nor I–but I plan to watch Genie’s return–to see if they do indeed give her an exciting storyline.

Good to have Donna Mills back..
I desperately need something new and different.
GH has be singing one note, a monotone note, same ol’ same ol’..

GH needs to SPEED UP.. 6 months-year long stories are overkill of boring.

The writers are not qualified to write intruding Shorter stories, they don’t have the talent nor the imagination to create stories of shorter length because that would mean instead of boring us with One looooong store they would have need to write perhaps 4 shorter stories and they are not capable to do so.

Hope Donna Mills brings something NEW , unpredictable, to my screen..
(not holding breath lol)

You know su000, I’ve loved Donna Mills since LOVE IS A MANY SPLENDORED THING, the 60s/70s soap she starred in with Leslie Charleson. And, of course, PLAY MISTY FOR ME and her fantastic Abby Ewing on KNOTS LANDING. Madeline may be wicked but Donna makes her a guilty pleasure. I’m looking forward to her return.

Celia
Celia

Uuuuu….Soaphound….I love that…”guilty pleasure”. Must use that line. I thought it was only used for Swiss chocolate???? HaHa and LOL.
❤️

Jimh

She will be in the same prison with her own sister Dr. Lisel…still wish she would turn out to have a fraternal twin and its Monica…Monica would be related to them both..this would also be a nod to when they played sisters on LIAMST…

Shay
Shay

That would be too much fun, Jimh! I do so hope “Mutter” and “Magda” meet up behind bars…toss The Britch in the mix and you will have a Westbourne Family reunion truly worthy of the word! (Though no Nina, please…enough of her already!)

Celia
Celia

Hi, Shaybelle,
Has Liesl been apprehended? I must have missed that episode.
Imagine them all together in prison.
But, without Nina, the ‘Coven’ would not be complete. I love these ‘witches’…LOL.
I LOVE my Nina as much as I love Drew…..and a few more worthy choices….

Shay
Shay

To the best of my knowledge, Liesl is still “at-large,” CeeCee, but in my fondest wish that she somehow remains on the GH canvas, I am concocting any necessary scenario in order to achieve that end. Given that DM’s “Magda” is making a return appearance, it would seem such a waste were the “Swiss Sisses” not to be reunited for another catty round of “happy family,” albeit temporarily so…Perhaps Obrecht will spring Maddie from prison, along with Britt??? ‘Twould be great fun to see them all together again “on the lam” from the law!!! P.S. Nina not required…sorry, mia amica, just had to toss that one in there!!! LOL….

Celia
Celia

Imagine if Liesl comes back in a Laura mask…..nah; ‘they’ wouldn’t dare, would they?

Shay
Shay

@CeeCee…I think Liesl has been permanently put off faux facades since her “Anna antics”….Faison saw to that with his kinky request for her “wear the mask” during their much-anticipated, yet ultimately-unfilled, whoopie session at Windemere….Lol! P.S. Replied to your lovely comments at the “Laura thread” and it actually posted!

Celia
Celia

Ahh, I see, Shay…..she finds fakeness distasteful? LOL…I guess she’s authentic despite her ‘antics’.
It makes no difference to me, or you, for that matter…mais oui? We love her anywhichway.

Shay
Shay

Yes, CeeCeeGirl…we do love our Liesl! In our eyes, she can do no wrong…especially when she is wrongdoing! After all, that is her forte’…

Celia
Celia

I will never understand how the comings and goings work, Shaybelle…..
Who or what determines the ‘fate’ of characters?……with the exception of those actors/actresses who want to terminate their tenure, of course.
Kathleen’s personification of Liesl is and has everything…..a personality that made me both laugh and cry. Why allow her to slip through their fingers?
If this show is as moribund as many have said; shouldn’t TPTB try their best to feed it in order to sustain it?

Shay
Shay

In the current state of GH, I would say a great deal comes down to money, CeeCee. When one considers how much it takes to keep the “favored few,” fat and happy, not to mention the continual funding of Frank’s penchant for an endless parade of newbies and “intersoapers,” there is little left to offer a contract to someone as supremely talented and beloved as Kathleen Gati…and her magnificently monstrous creation of Liesl Obrecht! More’s the pity! This amazing actress takes whatever too-occasional scraps are provided to her flamboyant femme of a character and spins them into gold! Whether in terms of comedy or drama, she nails it each and every time! Having said that, since the magnificent Ms. Gati has not been exclusively hired for the GH canvas, she is free to take her clearly in-demand talents elsewhere, and she does! More power to her, but a sad state for those of us who desire to a greater emphasis upon the sinister schemes of her outrageously outre’ Dr. O.!!!!!

Celia
Celia

Again, you have slain me….your post is unreal, Shay. Perfect writing …succint, yet tells a story.
I guess I hadn’t thought of ‘budget’….of course, money, or lack thereof, impinges upon whom stays and whom goes…..but, I can thing of a couple or threevwith whom I could part without sorrow…..and it wouldn’t be sweet. HaHa….❤️

Shay
Shay

You and me both, CeeCeeGirl! We all have our favorites and bete noirs amongst the denizens of Port Charles…and I suspect most of ours wouldn’t necessarily comport in relation to the current GH cast, but I do celebrate the fact that we, along with many others, agree upon and applaud Kathleen Gati’s exceptional efforts as Liesl…she is a shining example of creating a full-fledged soap character from an initial showstring showing as a fleeting one-off….this used to be how iconic daytimers initially made their mark and entered the eventual pantheon of legends…I hope that Dr. O. is well on her way to becoming a member of that prestigious club! Obrecht is too valuable a player to be sent off to soap limbo, never to be seen or heard again! (Maybe she’ll turn up in Cassandra’s clinic storyline….she has probably skedaddled to Europe by now….). At any rate, thank you for the always much-appreciated gracious comments, mia amica!

Jimh
Jimh

it would be fun if they have a prison story with the sisters together if written right and a touch of comedy!!!

Shay

A campy “Women in Chains”-style storyline ala Ron C could be great fun!

Celia
Celia

Hi, Jimmy,
Yeah, but only if they find Liesl.
I wish I knew more about what you and Soaphound are talking about…..Must be a really fantastic feeling to have been part of that era.
I envy you guys!!

Jimh
Jimh

It leaves me with fond memories of the greatest soap opera era…i am also watching vintage episodes of The Doctors serial which i watched when it originally aired…if only all soaps survived the wiping process and being shown-you could had seen how great the soaps once were…but having come from that era always makes me an old-which i am…lol

Hopefully we will see about 5 seconds of her as her sister’s cellmate and then be rid of both of them forever. One of Re-Ron’s useless creations.

Michael (not Fairman)

Oh come on now, Satan. Liesl suffered terribly from overuse and overexposure during the Carlivati era, especially at the very end, and some of the story nonsense that was contrived in order to keep her front and center was utterly preposterous (I’m thinking especially of the way she ended up as the head of the hospital), but she was hardly “useless” given her connections to others formerly on the canvas. With less screen time, she’d have been fine; Kathleen Gati has always been fun to watch, even if I sometimes wished she was on my screen less. Madeline, I’d agree, was more disposable, but she too had her moments, and she wasn’t really around long enough, or taking up enough screen time, to be a serious impediment to any viewers who didn’t like her. And having her around got us Donna Mills for a while–always a plus.

Lisel was a one and done character. To cartoonish!

Agreed!

Ahhh, my T…
I’d rather watch Liesl than Carly….or Dr Kim….well, I was going to say Jordan, but she’s leaving.

Timmm

I like Kim! I forget she was even Carly at one time!

Celia
Celia

Hi, T,
It’s not that I don’t like Kim..”.Actually, I do.
I simply do not trust her. Don’t ask me why, LOL….I do not even know….a visceral feeling.
There’s more to her past with Drew in which she is not divulging. For good reason or not? Who knows!!

Timmm
Timmm

I got ya babe! Now, it seems like Liz Hendrickson’s character has a past with Drew. TRIANGLE!

Celia
Celia

Yes, T….I got that same vibe….
I think there is a story there between Drew and Margaux.
I hope so…..nothing dark, though. I’m done with the GH macabre.

Steve

Kathleen Gati is the best casting find during Frank’s run. She’s embodied Liesl with equal parts evil and fun. Who else could call Elizabeth “mousy Nurse Webber”, Anna “that twit” and Felicia “the Aztec”?

Timmm
Timmm

I agree, bury BOTH of them!

I can’t believe they are letting that murderous old bat out, after killing Silas and helping Rick swindle money from her own daughter. I loved Donna on Knott’s Landing, etc.but I can not stand her character on GH.

Angelica McDaniel OUT as CBS Head of Daytime As Network Restructures

There has been a swift turn in the CBS Daytime hierarchy.  In news this evening, CBS Head of Daytime Angelica McDaniel has exited the network and her position, following a restructuring which dissolved her position.

According to Deadline:  McDaniel’s position is being eliminated as the network is folding the daytime team into the Current Programming department headed by Amy Reisenbach.”  Angelica had been with the company for nine years.

Reportedly, McDaniel’s last day at CBS was today.  The move by CBS now makes it similar to how ABC handles their soap opera, General Hospital as it is overseen by Vicki Dummer. who oversees all scripted series for the day-pa

Kelly Kahl, President of CBS Entertainment said in a stateement: “Angelica McDaniel championed our daytime series line up with creativity, passion and energy and broke new ground by helping launch the Network’s first daytime talk show in years while respecting the long history and tradition of the dramas and game shows. We appreciate her many contributions and wish her well on her next endeavors.”

McDaniel oversaw The Young and the Restless (who’s ratings have been on a decline of late) and The Bold and the Beautiful for the network.  She also was responsible for championing The Talk to daytime television.  Angelica was promoted over a short period of time by industry standards to her position after her accomplishments.

GMA’s Lara Spencer Says, “I Screwed Up” As She Apologizes For Insensitive Prince George Ballet Joke

After a major backlash, Good Morning America‘s Lara Spencer apologized Monday morning on-air during the ABC morning show, over comments she made last week over now six-year-old Prince George taking ballet classes.

In her apology, Spencer told GMA viewers: “I screwed up.  The comment I made about dance was insensitive, it was stupid, and I am deeply sorry.”

Several key figures in the dance community spoke out following her remarks, and Spencer herself also spoke to them over the last few days telling viewers: “I have listened, I have learned about the bravery it takes for a young boy to pursue a career in dance.”

From there, a previously recorded group interview Spencer conducted with three male dancers; Robbie Fairchild (Cats), Travis Wall (So You Think You Can Dance) and Fabrice Calmels (Joffrey Ballet), was shown as each expressed their personal journey and often the humiliation they felt as young boys when they were laughed at and made fun of because of dance.

All of this was kicked off by Spencer making a comment during the Thursday ‘Pop News’ segment on GMA, in which she talked about Prince George’s  “curriculum”.

Lara said in her commentary: “In addition to the usual first- and second-grade things like math, science and history, the future King of England will be putting down the Play-Doh to take on religious studies, computer programming, poetry and ballet, among other things.” She then paused which gave way to chortles in the audience and went on to say: “Prince William says Prince George absolutely loves ballet. I have news for you, Prince William: We’ll see how long that lasts. I mean, he might! He might end up … Between the religious studies and the computer programming, I just want to go back to the Play-Doh!”
