Former GH Baddie Bruce Weitz to Appear on The Young and the Restless!



Word today from CBS Soaps in Depth has former General Hospital bad guy, Bruce Weitz (Ex-Anthony Zacchara) slated to appear on The Young and the Restless!

Weitz will be appearing as the character of Barry, beginning on the Wednesday April 17th episode!  However according to SID, “This will a much shorter stint than his time on GH. Weitz is only scheduled to appear in three episodes. ”

So Y&R fans, who do you think Weitz’s Barry will be involved with Genoa City? Are you cool with this casting? Or are you going to feel that Weitz just got the part because he has worked with current Y&R EP, Jill Farren Phelps when she was at the helm of General Hospital?  Whatever the reason for the casting, there is no doubt that Weitz is certainly an exceptional actor to have in any cast …  on any soap!

Love Bruce Weitz, he’s done countless shows. Glad he will be in Genoa City but definitely should be more than three episodes.

I do hope Sharon has a brother and it is Dylan. Rumors go that Doris had an affair with Dylans dad many years ago and did not tell Sharon. I love this idea and i bet Bill Bell would alo. Sharon is the only main star of the show with no siblings! Her best friend Drucilla we beg for her return every damn day but nothing! Does this show care what the fans who have bben there since 1973 think??? I love Shadam they need a son not this Chelsea crazy women recast and sent her on her way to Paris! 🙂

Not all of us are clamoring for the return of Drucilla. 🙂

Anyway, I think the return of Drucilla, as played by Victoria Rowell is much bigger than giving the “fans what they want.” The backstage turmoil was probably just too much, but they could always try and recast, I suppose.

I agree that Sharon needs some family. Dylan would make sense because he did not grow up with a silver spoon in his mouth like the rest of the Genoa City characters. I REALLY like that the show has a MAN. Not a male, but a MAN who knows how to fix cars and give a lady a lift when her car breaks down. Chivalry is not dead. 🙂

I don’t know. I hope it does turn out that Sharon and Dylan had the same father. Maybe this will be a old buddy of Dylans dad?

That would be GREAT if Sharon is Dylans brother! Maybe this will be the uncle that knows the truth and Doris had an affair with Dylans father.

He was soil good on GH it’s sad they got rid of him, he was a fun villain!

I wasnt too crazy with all that mob stuff overtaking the show( a little wouldnt hurt…gh needs patients) but i agree he was fun to watch.

Ooh Antony Z in Genoa City I gotta see this

It going be good name him sonny z have brandon come on too z famliy reuion love bb as anthony ;)”

Hated him on GH, so I’ll hate him on Y&R.

,,BW/AZ will be involved with the Gus story ……………………….. imo

Bruce is great and they are lucky to get him! Could be an associate of Leslie’s father or the congressman or Dylan’s dad.

Is there more mystery to Dylan’s dad to come because I thought he just passed away today and that actor was not Bruce Weitz.

Sharon and Dylan siblings 🙂

I have heard the rumors of that, Jessicia, but I guess that would mean that the guy who just passed away was not Dylan’s biological father? I did not watch Y&R when Sharon came to Genoa City so I don’t know her history other than it was rough and her mother is in another town in a wheelchair.

Maybe the congressman is Leslies real father and this is the real reason the man she thought was her biological father killed her mother after finding out the truth. Bruce W. could be a hired hit man who shoots the congressman and in his hospital bed he will confess to Leslie that he is her real father. Its just an idea.

maybe he is a friend of congressman wheelers…………..

I hope this page does not become overloaded with “Friends of Jill” comments because, like it or not, THIS man can act. He was wonderful as Anthony Zacchara as well as on HILL STREET BLUES.

If they are smart they will make him recurring in some capacity.

He will probably figure into the story about Leslie’s criminal Dad

That’s my guess as well David.

This is great but I wish he could come back to GH. He was hilarious as Anthony Z.

agree…but with Johnny leaving wouldn’t be the same…


Well, another FOJ I see. WONDERFUL………NOT!!!!!!!!!

Is Jill getting all of GH LEFTOVERS?

‘General Hospital’ Reignites Scott’s Feud with Sonny Over His Past Misdeeds of His Late Daughter, Karen Wexler

In what now seems like many moons ago, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) was a small-time mobster who owned a strip club in Port Charles. He enticed a young Karen Wexler (Cari Shayne) to work as a stripper at the Paradise Lounge.

But things got worse from there! Sonny convinced Karen that stripping was her idea, and he eventually got her hooked on drugs and into his bed!

Karen’s father, Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner) has never forgotten what Sonny did Karen and for years wanted to take him down when he was the D.A. Fast-forward and on Wednesday’s February 28th episode of GH, Scott visited Karen’s gravesite on her birthday.


However, Scott had a visitor at the gravesite when John “Jagger” Cates also showed up to pay respects to his ex-wife.  This was the first time Scott laid eyes on the new incarnation of “Jagger’ on-screen as played by Adam J. Harrington.

Scott realizes he might have an ally to put the screws to Sonny after John reveals the pain and sorrow he still has over what Sonny did to Karen. Speaking to his former son-in-law about the break-up of his daughter’s marriage to him, Scott pipes up that Sonny, “walks around like he’s the mayor.” Then, Scott shouts to John, “Make him pay! Take him out!”‘

In Karen’s backstory: after getting help, Karen was reunited with “Jagger” and left Sonny. The two married and left Port Charles. Karen returned as medical student and had divorced “Jagger” in 1997, and the character landed on the General Hospital spinoff soap opera, Port Charles. Eventually, Karen was struck by a car and died. Three actresses played the role during Karen’s history: Cari Shayne, Jennifer Hammon and Marie Wilson.

Watch Scott and John talk about their vendetta against Sonny Corinthos in key scenes from GH below. Now let us know, do you think Sonny should pay for his manipulation of Karen Wexler many years ago? Comment below.

General Hospital’s Kate Mansi on Her First Scenes with Eva LaRue: “It Was So Tense and Uncomfortable, Which Was So Fun For Us.”

This week, General Hospital viewers have witnessed the arrival of Eva LaRue as Blaze’s (Jacqueline Grace Lopez) mother, Natalia. When Natalia blew into her daughter’s life, she also caught Kristina (Kate Mansi) in bed. The next moment, Mansi and LaRue played the awkwardness of the scene.

In the story, and at that point, Natalia apparently didn’t have a clue that her daughter is gay, so finding Kristina is her daughter’s room was puzzling to her.

Kate Mansi spoke to Soap Opera Digest on her introduction to soap veteran LaRue, who has appeared on All My Children as Maria Santos and won a Daytime Emmy for her role as Celeste Rosales on The Young and the Restless.

“She just came in like such a freaking pro,” shared Kate on LaRue. “She was so good. It was such a funny first introduction for our characters – it was written so well and it was so tense and uncomfortable, which was so fun for us.”

The two actresses instantly created a bond. As Mansi explained, “Right away, we were doing these funny one-liners back and forth (between scenes). Blaze said something like, ‘Kristina is more than my friend, she’s my partner,’ and then they’d call, ‘Cut!’ and Eva and I would look and each other and we’d be like, ‘She means writing partner,’ or she’d be like, ‘Yeah, yeah, she means producing partner, right?’ We were just dying laughing.”

On Wednesday’s episode of GH, Natalia learned Blaze was gay, but isn’t quite believing her, thinking she had been somehow influenced by Kristina.  In the key scenes, Blaze tells Natalia that Kristina is more than her friend. She’s her girlfriend. Blaze asks if her mother heard what she truly said, and Natalia claims she did, but then starts cleaning up the place as a method of trying to cope with what she just heard.

Things get testy when Blaze says, “Kristina and I…” Next, Natalia cuts her daughter off, firmly saying, “There is no Kristina and you!”

So, did you enjoy the tension-filled scenes between Kate Mansi and Eva LaRue? Are you liking where GH is heading with the story of a disapproving and religious mother, trying to come to terms with her daughter and her girlfriend’s sexuality? Comment below.

At the beginning of the latest episode of General Hospital star, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos) State of Mind series, he delivered some heartbreaking news with a purpose.

Kyle Oldham, the daughter of former All My Children star, Lee Meriwether (ex-Ruth Martin), who previously made a guest appearance on Benard’s show, returned for a new interview which will be coming soon.

During their conversation, Oldham shared that her beloved mother has Alzheimer’s. Sadly, according to Benard, Kyle also revealed she has been diagnosed with the disease as well.

Maurice expressed, “We talked about her mother and having Alzheimer’s and it was an amazing interview. And then Kyle said, ‘I gotta tell you something. I have Alzheimer’s.’”

Apparently, Kyle has agreed to come on State of Mind, periodically as the effects of Alzheimer’s take a hold of her to help educate others. “We decided that she was gonna come in … she was gonna call me and tell me as she progresses,” Benard shared. “She was going to come in again so the audience could see with their eyes what Alzheimer’s does to someone.”

Benard’s guest for this current episode of State of Mind was Vernee Watson (Stella, GH), who along with Maurice, was part of the Alzheimer’s storyline on the ABC daytime drama series that saw Mike Corbin (Max Gail) eventually pass away.

As for Lee Meriwether, not only is she known for her role on AMC, but also for her roles as Catwoman in Batman: The Movie, and The Courtship of Eddie’s Father, and for the television series, Barnaby Jones, the New Andy Griffith Show and The Munsters to name only a few.

In soap operas, Meriwether was cast in The Young Marrieds years prior to her time on All My Children where she replaced Mary Fickett in the matriarchal role in the Martin family. She played the role from 1996-99, 2002-03, and 2007-11.

Meriwether’s daughter, Kyle Oldham, has been an actress and spokesperson herself through the years. She appeared on The Price is Right for over 14 years until she couldn’t anymore after going through multiple surgeries in her adult life.

You can check out the full episode of State of Mind with Maurice an Vernee below.
