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!

Yes! Bring back Jack Wagner! They are bringing everyone else back, but we all know the fans want FRISCO back! They need to make him an offer he can’t refuse!

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

That would be so cool.

Please get Frisco back on GH!

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.

“All I Need” is a little Frisco Jones!!!! Love that character, and Jack too!!!!!

sounds like he can not do anything but dancing with the stars at the moment… then afterwards they can ask him.

jack wagner need to stay for a while on dancing with the stars. i really love his dancing. if jack wagner does come back to general hospital. please let it be full time on contract. no short term it wont work. tristan rogers comeback was so lame and boring.

Yes now is the perfect time to bring Frisco back. Cross your fingers!

YES! A thousand times, YES! We want our FRISCO back home, where he belongs!

YES, Bring back Jack!! I want my Frisco back where he belongs. Jack’s Frisco is where it all began for a huge number of us Jack Fans. It’s time to come full circle!

We want Frisco’s Back in action and save Robin’s life from wherever the hell is it!!

He is clearly open to it! NOW IS THE TIME TO BRING FRISCO BACK!!!

BRING BACK JACK!! BRING BACK JACK!!! BRING BACK JACK!!

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 waste a large contract on someone who does not fit on the canvas anymore. I like Jack Wagner but you can not turn the soap backwards Brad Bell released him for one reason could not afford him and he quit writing story for him long time ago.

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).

I’ll add my voice to the chorus of Bring Back Jack!

YES- Please bring Jack back to GH ,& wishing Jack good luck with Dancing with the Stars!!

I would love to see Jack Wagner back on GH as Frisco. Please give him a call to join GH.

Definitely, this would be a great time for Frisco and Felicia to both come back!

oh hell yes bring frisco back to gh!

Hell yes, get Frisco back on GH!!! My all time favorite character…

Please bring back Frisco! He is an adventurous character.

Bring back Jack, the producer’s are hording all the money. They money’s there I know for a fact. They need to pay people for their work. Rich just keep getting richer

general hospital is on a budget abc/disney.doesnt want them going over the costs they were given,the rat channel would rather put there money behind there precious prime time soaps then keep the classic soaps that have been on for close to 50 years.They canceled all my children and one life to live so they can line there pockets with more cash ,Your right they are getting richer while our soaps are getting poorer ,So keeping all these characters it wont happen unless the rat channel Has a change of heart and I dont think that will happen anytime soon.Maybe after jack is done dancing with the stars ,which by the way is going down in the ratings this week they did.He can show up in port charles.

Jack Wagner, Frisco booted of ” Dancing With The Star’s….! “

Eva LaRue Makes Her ‘General Hospital’ Debut: What Were Your First Impressions of Natalia Rogers-Ramirez?

On the Monday, February 26th episode of General Hospital, former All My Children favorite, Eva LaRue (ex-Maria Santos), made her first appearance in her new recurring role of Blaze’s (Jacqueline Grace Lopez) mother, Natalia Rogers-Ramirez.

In key scenes, as Kristina (Kate Mansi) and Blaze are happy after spending the night together, Kristina is in for a shock when she is still in bed and the door opens and Blaze’s mother, Natalia strolls in seemingly oblivious to walked she just walked in.

Natalia announces, “Alison, Mommy’s here!” Then, Natalia looks over and sees Kristina in bed and both women are a bit startled. Kristina introduces herself to “Mrs. Rogers-Ramirez.” However, Natalia corrects her and says it’s “Miss.”

Next, Blaze walks into the room still in her robe. She is very shocked that her mother arrived in Port Charles much earlier than expected. Natalia wants an explanation of just what she walked in on. It is then, Kristina concocts a story and explains they had a girls’ night, and it got late so Alison let her crash.

Natalia seems to buy into Kristina’s lies. Blaze starts to argue with her mother over the non-vegan sandals her mother brought her from Puerto Rico and her grandmother’s pudding, which she has told her in the past she dislikes. Kristina pipes in that the reason Alison doesn’t like it, is because of the texture and the same goes for avocado and flan. Natalia says she thinks she knows her own daughter.

Then, Blaze gets more upset and asks Kristina to stay and be by her side. Blaze announces that she and Kristina are more than just friends. We already know that Natalia is from a very conservative background, so we anticipate on tomorrow’s episode of GH, she won’t approve finding out her daughter is gay. Stay-tuned.

So, were you happy to see Eva LaRue back on daytime and now on General Hospital? What were you first impressions of her new character Natalia Rogers-Ramirez? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first, check out the scenes from her arrival below,

General Hospital’s William Lipton to Star in Music Drama Series ‘The Runarounds’ From ‘Outer Banks’ Creators

This sounds like a perfect starring vehicle for the multi-talented William Lipton (Cameron Webber), who recently made a brief return to General Hospital for his best friend, Spencer Cassadine’s (the exited Nicholas Chavez) gravesite memorial service.

Now comes word that Lipton is set to star in a new series in the works entitled The Runarounds. If that name sounds familiar, it’s because The Runarounds is the name of the band seen in season three of Netflix’s popular series, Outer Banks. 

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Amazon has given the green light to an eight-episode, straight-to-series order for The Runarounds which premise features the story of a post-high school band as they try to make it big.

The fictional drama is inspired by the real life band of the same name and will star its group’s members: William Lipton, Axel Ellis, Jeremy Yun, Zendé Murdock and Jesse Golliher.

The Runarounds will be set and film in Wilmington, North Carolina, where Outer Banks was also shot. Skydance Television is the studio behind the series. Outer Banks creators Josh Pate, Joshua Pate, and Shannon Burke will bring this project to life.

Lipton took to his Instagram on Monday, once the news of the series was revealed, expressing, “Where are we going, fellas? To the top, Johnny!” Immediately GH co-stars past and present shared their congratulations to William including: Sydney Mikayla (ex-Trina Robinson) and Enzo De Angelis, who plays Lipton’s brother, Aiden on GH.

 

In a statement, Vernon Sanders, head of television at Amazon MGM Studios, expressed: “When we first met with Jonas and Skydance about The Runarounds, it was immediately clear that they brought us a special show featuring an incredibly talented cast and real-life band. We are very much looking forward to sharing the exhilarating journey of The Runarounds with our global Prime Video customers.”

The Runarounds were actually formed as a band back in 2021, when Jonas Pate issued a casting call looking for a group to appear on Outer Banks. The group first performed together when they played for Pate ahead of appearing in season three after being selected from a more than 5,000 musicians who responded to the call.

No word yet on when The Runarounds will be released.

So, excited for this opportunity for William Lipton to star in this music drama? Hope he returns to GH down the line? Comment below.
