General Hospital

DWTS Jack Wagner, "I am actually under contract to ABC, so if GH wants to call, they can!"

Last night on season 14 of Dancing with the Stars, the former star of General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful and Melrose Place, Jack Wagner danced his heart out in the second week of the ballroom dance competition.  But, is it good enough to keep him from getting the boot on tonight’s Results Show?  The judges seemed to think so, although they gave a few tips to Wagner to not over-dance, since he is such an engaging performer to watch.

Now, as to the question that all of soapland is wondering, if Jack is coming on to reprise his role as Frisco Jones on General Hospital?  Wagner told ABC Soaps in Depth,  “I’m prohibited from doing anything but dancing with Anna Trebunskaya (his DWTS dance partner)  right now at all.  Except maybe for going to the grocery store and feeding my kids!” No Port Charles updates. I’m actually under contract to ABC so if General Hospital wants to call then they can call.”

Watch Wagner’s dance after the jump from last night’s competition on Dancing with the Stars, and then let us know if you think GH exec, Frank Valentini should call Jack and try to negotiate tobring him on to the show when DWTS has concluded!

I wish Frisco would come back and help save Robin, which in turn could help save Maxie.

That would be so cool.

I would absolutely love for Jack Wagner to return to GH as Frisco Jones. Frisco and Felicia are my all time favorite GH couple and always bring excitement and interest to the show. GH has improved so much and now they have the opportunity to keep that going by bringing Jack back.

I agree with you. It would be a travesty to get this close to something that even 3 months ago would have been unthinkable and let it pass by. It’s the right time for GH and Jack to come to an agreement and get this going. It’s not like anything in this genre is a given anymore, so I think time is of the essence.

Supposedly they offered him a short stint like his ex-wife he wanted a contract they did not offer it, everybody they do not have the money to give these guys a contract MB,SB,TG etc cost a lot and how does Frisco fit in anymore? Mac has been Maxie’s father forever. Soaps are a dying breed RC &FV are doing everything possible to save it but they are working on tight budgets etc. maybe it is because I have owned a business for so long the economy is suffering you do what you have to do they are not going to… Read more »

Interesting. Do you have a source regarding JW wanting a full time contract? JW mentioned in an interview (on Access Hollywood) that he rejected GH offer due to his heavy schedule (it wasn’t his exact words, but something like that).

(WATCH) GH’s Genie Francis Shares: “I Just Have a Hard Time Believing, In My Heart, That The Great Luke Spencer Died in an Accident”

Today’s Friday episode of General Hospital, is set to feature the funeral of the iconic Luke Spencer (Tony Geary).

While family and friends will gather on the Haunted Star to memorialize him, what been teased by the ABC daytime drama is it will also set a whole storyline in motion.

ABC7 entertainment guru, George Pennacchio, spoke to several of the GH cast, who are involved in the episode including: Luke Spencer’s long-time love, Laura played by Genie Francis.

Francis exclaimed on the whole story: “I just have a hard time believing, in my heart, that the great Luke Spencer died in an accident.  No one stays dead on a soap. I don’t know how many times I’ve been dead. Really!”

Genie added: “I feel like they’re setting the stage, really, for a wonderful comeback and I’m going to keep my fingers crossed for that.”

Luke’s longtime friend played by Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) shared: “And has it actually happened? I mean, frankly, we have a little urn about this big that’s supposed to contain him and that’s it.”

And Luke’s sister, Bobbie, played by Jackie Zeman, also weighed-in if Luke is really a-goner: “Sometimes you get these little red herrings so, as you know, George, you know, you never really know.”

Watch Pennacchio chat with the GH stars below.

Now weigh-in, do you believe Luke is very much alive and well? Held captive, or “dead” dead? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

ESPN Sports Personality and ‘General Hospital’ Guest Star, Stephen A. Smith Reveals COVID-19 Nearly Took His Life

In a harrowing account of coming down with Covid-19, ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith, who also has a recurring role on General Hospital as Brick, revealed his battle over the holidays that led to him being hospitalized because of the severity of his symptoms.

On Monday, Smith returned to his co-hosting gig on ESPN’s First Take and it was there he shared what happened during his breakthrough case of Covid.  Stephen had been fully vaccinated. Smith said that he had tested positive late in December and wound up in the hospital with pneumonia in both lungs over New Years.

Stephen A. discussed the details, expressing:  “I had 103 degree fever every night. Woke up with chills and a pool of sweat. Headaches were massive. Coughing profusely. And it got to a point where right before New Year’s Eve, I was in the hospital into New Year’s Day. That’s how I brought in the New Year.”

He went on to say about contracting Covid-19: “For me personally, it hit me differently. (Doctors) told me, had I not been vaccinated, I wouldn’t be here. That’s how bad I was. I had pneumonia in both lungs. My liver was bad, and it ravaged me to the point where even now I have to monitor my volume, get to the gym every day … I’m still not 100% with my lungs, but I’m Covid negative … I’m on the road to recovery.”

On a happier note, Smith shared how glad he was to be back at work after testing negative: “I’m ecstatic to be back. I’ve missed being at work. I’ve used more sick days in the last month than I’ve used in my 28-year career in this business.  And I can’t tell you how lucky and sincerely blessed I am to be sitting here with you guys today because two-and-a-half, three weeks ago, I didn’t know if I was gonna make it.”

So, glad to know Stephen A. is on the mend from a very scary bout with Covid? Share your thoughts in the comment section
