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!

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.

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).

Holly’s Alive as Emma Samms Makes a Return to General Hospital

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.

Nighttime soap fans remember her fondly as Fallon on ABC’s Dynasty and its spin-off, The Colbys.

Once the secret was out on her appearance at the end of Friday’s episode,  Samms shared on Twitter: “She’s alive…!”

So what do you think of the twist? That Holly is alive and that Samms was on-screen? Who do you think has Holly? Share your theories below.
