When True Blood premieres for its fifth season on June 10th on HBO, there will be lots of new faces! And one of them is our very own, Carolyn Hennesy!

That’s right! The On-Air On-Soaps Podcast co-host, General Hospital star, Tween novelist extraordinaire, and Barb of Cougar Town, has a fantastic role in the new season as Rosalyn Harris of The Vampire Authority! And somehow Carolyn’s juicy role got even juicier, when it was revealed that her character  is connected to the show’s newest  hunk, former Law & Order SVU star, Christopher Meloni, who plays Roman in the hit vampire saga!

First look images of Carolyn and Christopher along with all the other new True Blood season 5 cast additions were previewed over the weekend by Zap2it.com!

Hennesy previewed how she and Meloni are intertwined on True Blood in the new season in a recent interview with lenalamoray.com   “She was made an Authority Council Member by the Guardian, Chris Meloni’s character (Roman).  This happened centuries ago so what their relationship was like, we don’t know yet.  If the Authority has been around 2000 years then she has been a member for 1900 years.  As long as the Authority has been around she’s pretty much been a part of it.  All of my other Authority members as it stands now like Christopher Heyerdahl (as Dieter Braun), Peter Mensah (as Kibwe), and Chris Meloni.  There are some huge, huge political battles being fought in the vampire world this season.  There are a lot of heavy duty and very important council meetings.”

Are you looking forward to seeing Carolyn and Christopher on True Blood? Let us know!

ABSOLUTELY! Carolyn has always been a favorite on GH and cannot wait to see her in action on True Blood. And Chris Meloni…he is just PURE gold.

Can’t wait to see Carolyn Henessy on TRUE BLOOD!!! Love she’s a vampire…should be an interesting season! 😀

I don’t want to see Carolyn or Christopher in any thing but in their original roles, especially Christopher back in Law& Order where he really belongs, He is really missed. I can’t picture Carolyn in vampire land,either. Ah, show biz……

NO WAY, So that’s where she has been instead of the courtroom or giving alexis advice, I like Diane and I want her back in Port Charles with a bigger role, Not doing a vampire show, good grief.

I am very happy for Carolyn… she is very talented and I am happy she is working! I just wish she was on GH! I will not be watching True Blood, but it is a guarantee that she will be great! Michael we need a podcast with her… please!

I miss Diane in Port Charles is she gone for good? And with the state of soaps you have to find work where you can.

I hope she is not gone for good, I really like diane, No wonder she hasn’t been around in a while.

Oh this is good news should be good!

Happy for her…..Lord knows that she hasn’t been properly utilized on GH, so I am glad that HBO is putting her talents to use. Will be watching and supporting both her and Chris.

I am sooooo happy for Carolyn! She is a very talented lady whose gifts weren’t being used on GH. I miss her sassy lines, and gorgeous self on GH, but as a True Blood fan, I seriously can’t wait for her appearance! As in everything she takes on, Carlolyn will be a brilliant vamp! This is a role she can really sink her teeth into. (pun intended!) Rock on Carolyn!

I forgot to add- I love Chris Meloni! The pairing of he and Carolyn will be a delicious addition to TB! 😀

She’s not doing any naked in this show……………No WAY….. I want her back in PC where she belong to. I have seen enough of Anna Paquin been naked before.. Sorry,True Bloods fans .. I really like Carolyn Hennessy look better in PC than be in True Bloods’ naked scene.. she look really great when she were doing her performance on GH!!

Yeah, Carolyn Hennessy! She is a wonderful actress. I’m happy for her success.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Brook Lynn and Chase’s Wedding Reception Brings a Beatdown for Dex

On Friday’s, May 17th episode of General Hospital, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) and Chase’s (Josh Swickard) wedding reception was the focal point as the touching celebration for the newlyweds got underway.

Sonny (Maurice Benard) was seething over seeing Dex mingle with the guests. With Dex becoming a cop, and ratting him out to Anna, previously Sonny feels betrayed by his former hit man. However, Sonny’s growing paranoia and mental stability is in question, in particular, because he has been off the proper dosage of meds for months now.

Later, when Sonny sees Dex talking with Gio (Giovanni Mazza) about serving in the military, and later chumming it up with Cerullos, he is about to go postal.

Outside the ballroom. Sonny confronts Dex about chatting it up with the Cerullos, who he says are his people. He warns Dex to stay away from his family. Dex says he was invited to the reception.

Next, Sonny calls Dex a snitch, a spy, and lets him know he is “lucky to be breathing.”  Sonny issues Dex a warning to stay away from his family, or he may not be breathing much longer.

As Sonny turns to walk away., Dex grabs him by the arm to try to reason with him and to and say he’s not his enemy. However, Sonny throws a punch. In the pickup, Sonny continues to bloody and beatdown Dex, until Jason (Steve Burton) arrives on the scene and restrains Sonny.

Kristina (Kate Mansi) walks in on the moment. She sees her father is yelling that both Jason and Dex are traitors. Sonny screams that they are both dead and he’s going to put a gun to their heads.

So, what did you think of Sonny’s explosive words and actions against Dex and Sonny? Will Kristina figure out what is going on with her dad, once and for all? Comment below.
