Emily shared: “Blessed to be a part of the General Hospital family. It was incredible, and I feel so fortunate to have spent some time in Port Charles! Thank you so much for the kind words, support, and love! You are all amazing, and you mean the world to me! THANK YOU WITH ALL OF MY HEART!”

Look for Emily to next appear on an episode of ABC’s primetime drama Castle starring Nathan Fillion!

Very sad episode, I will miss both Emily and Bradford. Sad to see the Spinelli role go, he was such a quirky character and brought much needed humour:)

Is Bradford gone? I can’t believe I haven’t read anything about this!

Is he really not coming back? 🙁

I’m devastated that yet again one of my favorites is gone. Emily is one the the sweetest ladies ever. She took the time to meet me in CA after her event. I couldn’t get to go. I stood outside for 2.5 hrs to see her. She made sure I got my picture. I will miss the quirkiness of Ellie. But I will never stop being a fan of her ever. Best of Luck Emily!

I could not agree more, Blythe. Ellie was a breath of fresh air–she was smart, incredibly sweet, self evolved, independent and yes, lovely. I especially loved her when she told Spinelli why she did not want to put more kids in the world because it would only add to over population, not to mention giving them a future where the eco-system was being eroded by climate change. I mean, here we had an assertion of science over ignorance. So Eli leaves and we are left with who? Oh yes, Sparkle Pony whose IQ matches the size of her horse shoes.

No !!!!! nuff said

Loved you and Spinelli together. Will miss seeing the both of you together. Best of luck to you in all your future endeavors.

I am sad!!!

will miss Ellie Trout! I enjoyed having you on my screen 🙂
Emily Wilson, wishing you the best!!

Very very sad. I will miss the role she played. But will look for her in Castle and hope she finds more work soon.

yes especially with more ancient characters returning. Its like if you didnt watch in 1970 they arent accomodating you

I will miss Ellie and Spinelli. I loved the role of Ellie played by Emily Wilson. I want to wish Emily and Bradford the best of luck.

I loved the freshness and vivacity she brought to her role in addition to nailng the quirkiness. I had a sincere wish that maybe TPTB would ultimately write her as the missing Q heir. She more than held her own in the few scenes she shared with Jane Elliot and I found her to be a worthy rival for Maxie when it came to BAs Damian Spinelli. She truly had me indecisive as to who I wanted him to be with. Of the new characters introduced under this regime, she easily out distances any of the others. And that makes me sad, as much as BA leaving also. I’ll look forward to her appearance on “Castle” and anything else she books. All the best Miss Wilson!

always sad to see characters we’ve gotten used to go. if we’re to believe what we’re watching…if only for a moment in time…it’s like losing a “real” friend. that’s part of the addiction of soaps…getting immersed in a fictional world and “attached” to fictional characters. when they leave…it’s a loss. but, where there’s soap, there’s hope! LOL. maybe spinellii and ellie will pop in down the road.

Will sadly miss Ellie & Spinelli on GH!! Emily looking forward to seeing you ON CASTLE and on many new shows. Spread you wings and fly : ) BEST OF LUCK TO YOU!!

yes, miss them both, love the characters and hope they visit us soon.

I always thought Ellie shouldve been a Quartimaine or revealed to be someone else…she really didnt have much of a connection to the people of PC like she should of to make her more interesting but i liked her and i liked her with Spinnelli…GH needed cast trimming but not these two…they’ll e missed! She could be a big primetime star and Bradford too…he’d be good as one of the gang on The Big Bang Theory…imo.

I think she would make a great Mac on Y & R,. GH loss is Y & R gain!!!

Ellie was the only newbie I liked.

Me too–why is it always the wrong ones leaving?

Ha ha….and exactly who are the “right ones,” Harry????? (Oh, let me guess…..) ; )

really liked her! (and spin, of course!) hopefully they’ll be back some day!

Not really sad, as they weren’t favourite characters of mine. However, I think they were a bit under used.

Will sadly miss “Elli” she was one that should have had a longer run on the show.

Sorry to see her character leave GH. There’s about a dozen that I’d rather have seen go (starting with Sonny).

General Hospital’s Rena Sofer Remarries Sanford Bookstaver

Congratulations are in order for Rena Sofer (Lois Cerullo, General Hospital) and her longtime love, TV director and producer, Sanford Bookstaver. The couple re-tied the knot over this past weekend in a wedding ceremony.

In a post on her Instagram, Sofer shared the details, expressing, “This weekend on what would have been our 21st wedding anniversary I got to Re-Marry my best friend Sanford Booksaver once again!”

The GH star and Daytime Emmy-winner added,”The journey we are about to begin is the most exciting adventure, in a new state and town, but most thrilling is that we get to do it together as husband and wife!”

Alluding to their time apart, Rena noted, “The three years we spent apart were humbling and heartbreaking but vital to us finding each other again. The love I have for you now is the foundation of my life. I can’t imagine another moment NOT walking through life with you hand in hand and our hearts entwined. You are the love of my life, and it’s not ‘oops we did it again, but I’m so grateful we did it again!❤️❤️❤️”

Previously, Sofer was married to GH and Days star, Wally Kurth (Ned and Justin, respectively) from 1995-1997, and the two share a daughter together, Rosabel Rosalind Kurth. Rena and Sanford were previously married from 2005 to 2017 and share a daughter together, Avalon Leone.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Preview: Alexis , Finn, and Kristina Face Life-Altering Moments

This week on ABC’s General Hospital could bring a shift in the lives of several lives in Port Charles. In the latest promo for the daytime drama series, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) is seen in court facing her accuser, the brother of her former lover, the late Neil Byrne, in the form of Lane Davies as Fergus Byrne.

Will Alexis finally be reinstated as a lawyer? Will Fergus and Alexis actually hit it off since Lane and Nancy Lee Grahn played the beloved Mason and Julia Capwell on Santa Barbara, and Davies was previously on GH as Dr. Cameron Lewis?

Meanwhile, a pregnant Kristina (Kate Mansi) is reeling after seeing her father, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) lose his grip and threatening to kill Jason (Steve Burton) and Dex (Evan Hofer). Will her unborn baby be in danger?

Finally, Finn’s (Michael Easton) sobriety is really tested and it all seems to be inadvertently caused by the Cerullos. First, at the wedding reception of Brook Lynn and Chase, Carmine hands Finn a glass of champagne after his daughter Violet’s performance. Not paying attention, he takes a sip of champagne during a toast.

Now, Carmine and Gloria send a bottle of bourbon to Finn with their “warmest regards.” However, Finn can’t stop himself from pouring himself a drink.  Will Finn finally give in, and we are off to the races with another addiction storyline for the good doctor? Stay tuned.

Check out the latest GH preview below.

Now, let us know. What do you think will happen with Finn, Alexis and Kristina on this week’s GH? Share your theories in the comment section.

General Hospital’s Maurice Benard Defends Sonny Going Postal, “It Could Definitely Happen”

Last Friday’s May 17th cliffhanger of General Hospital saw Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) beating up Dex (Evan Hofer) and threatening to shoot and kill both Dex and Jason (Steve Burton), who is restraining him outside the ballroom at the wedding reception of Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) and Chase (Josh Swickard).

For months, Sonny has been taking less than his prescribed dosage of medication to control his bipolar disorder.  The mobster has no idea that he has been duped by Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart), who is the one that set this dangerous situation in motion, in an effort to eliminate Sonny and eventually Jason from interfering in Pikeman taking over the territory.

One fan questioned the validity of Sonny’s reaction to Dex and Jason after the pei, when he took to X and expressed, “People off their medications don’t necessarily go around hitting people and being out of control. This was the WRONG message to send. I don’t expect anything from Frank Valentini and General Hospital anymore, but you could’ve (and should’ve) stopped it cold.”

Maurice Benard replied back to that comment and defended the actions of Sonny given the circumstances. The three-time Daytime Emmy-winner shared, “This is true but when you have a character like Sonny who’s volatile and is drinking and is manic and his thoughts are taken him over it could definitely happen like I said, ‘bipolar ain’t pretty.”‘

GH has portrayed Sonny’s battle with mental illness and the importance of keeping on your meds, plus the issues surrounding it for years. However, some fans have not been pleased by this latest plot point.


The pick-up of the story begins tomorrow on Monday, May 20th where teasers for the episode share: Sonny is horrified. Blaze consoles Kristina (who walked in on her dad threatening Jason and Dex) and Jason summons Carly.

So, what did you think of the plot point of Sonny threatening to kill Dex and Jason, after beating up Dex, given his growing paranoia? Comment below.
