General Hospital & Fitness Guru Richard Simmons Previews His New Music Video "Hair Do!"

OMG! Fitness guru Richard Simmons, who helped all the gals of the seventh floor nurses station on General Hospital keep those figures lean and mean with aerobics classes back in the 80’s, and who made a return last week to GH, and returned for the Nurses Ball last April in scenes having a meltdown over Lucy Coe (Lynn Herring) is about to launch … his first music video!

The song titled, “Hair Do” was teased by Simmons on Twitter yesterday when he related, “My new music video HAIR DO debuts on Friday, but until then  ..” and linked to this video on You Tube that has the lyrics and a faux-video game theme of Simmons new tune!

The lyrics include the chorus: “short, long, straight, or curly, get something cute , get something girly, short, long, straight or curly, get something cute , get something girly.” And one of the verses that goes like, “Oribe cuts hair and gave a blow to Penelope Cruz and sexy J-Lo,  Alexandre De Paris brushed the hair of Hepburn and Jackie O with such care …”

Since the real music video will have its world premiere this Friday, until then, enjoy this ditty after the jump! Then, let us know what you thought of it!

Please, GH, stop featuring Richard Simmons. There are so many talented cast members who aren’t on the show nearly enough, so why are we forced to watch Richard. No offense to Richard Simmons, I’m sure he has a place somewhere, but it shouldn’t be on GH.

Why is his video news on this site?

Does this mean he’s going to be taking up more airtime on GH? I certainly hope not. I f/f through every scene he’s in. There are so many vets who need more s/l’s. Why waste viewers time with this person.

Dang video didnt work…hope it turns out better than his G.H. return…Frisco interupting Mac’s and Felicia’s wedding wouldve been so much better, especially with Maxi going into labor.

Amen to that….Frisco’s absence has left a gaping hole in those two particular storylines, not to mention the recent action/adventure arcs with all his old pals. Pleeeze bring Jack Wagner back to GH, and soon!!!!!

While I may have come off as being a smart aleck, I did wish to know the circumstances. Is he a “Barbie” collector then or what? I simply cannot understand WHY on earth he was THERE!!!….Don’t get the connection. Really…..

I don’t care for his video! When I saw him on GH at Felicia and Mac’s wedding , I said :OH NO!!!!!! I thought he was there for revenge for the NB ! I really hope he doesn’t come on GH no more.

Back off! He is a gracious person who made the Barbie convention extra fun and who helped millions of GH fans lose weight, not to mention millions of others.. That being said, he was a happy fitness trainer on GH not a campy Queen so I agree with the non sensical use of him on GH. If he has to be on… get Epiphany to lose weight with him… her real life journey.. it would be fricken Emmy material.. death of her son made her eat, not having a man, ya all get it…

GENERAL HOSPITAL: What Does Franco Have Planned For Peter … The Ultimate Revenge?

This week on General Hospital, the story picks back up on the night of the double-wedding debacle for Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and Peter (Wes Ramsey), and Anna (Finola Hughes) and Finn (Michael Easton).

Last week’s Friday cliffhanger saw Franco (Roger Howarth) taking a crowbar to Peter’s head and knocking him out after realizing the voice in his head was that of Peter’s.

Meanwhile, Maxie who is in the hospital trying to ensure the safety of her unborn baby with Peter, is getting an earful on how far his deception has gone, and from all the people she knows and trusts.  Now, Anna (Finola Hughes) comes to see her God-daughter in the latest promo from ABC.

But the twist that many may, or may not, have seen coming is that Franco has taken Peter and tied him up which looks eerily familiar from when Franco’s mind-mapping took place and he was turned into Drew.

With Franco’s growing brain tumor, what is he capable of doing to Peter? Will he exact the perfect revenge on the guy?

Watch the latest teaser below.

Now weigh-in: what do you think Franco will do next? Share your theories in the comment section.

GH’s Michael Easton and Finola Hughes Deliver the ‘Power Performances of the Week’

It was an emotional week of episodes on General Hospital as the double-wedding of Finn (Michael Easton) and Anna (Finola Hughes), and Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) took a double nose-dive.

Each installment left us wondering if either couple would actually get hitched, but when Finn and Anna were the first to combust and not Peter and Maxie, it set the stage for two beloved soap veterans to once again, remind us all, why they are always at the top of the game when required to play high drama that tugs at the heartstrings.

In story, Finn is gut-punched, (and no one can play that better than Michael Easton), when Anna reveals that she knew that Peter was not her biological son and had done all the horrific deeds he has been hiding, in an effort to stop Maxie from marrying Peter.  When Finn realizes Anna confided in Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), and they were working together to bring Peter down it was too much for him to take.

Finn walks out on their wedding.  Alone and with tears welling up in his eyes, Finn feels his chance at love is dashed again.  Add to the fact, he has DNA results to prove if he is Chase’s (Josh Swickard) father and not his brother, or not, and the guy has been through the wringer of late.

As for Anna, she has literally imploded her own life, while trying to save others, after realizing the error of her ways; constantly putting her faith in Peter.  When she comes to visit Finn, she knows no matter what she says to Finn it looks bad.  She sees how she has hurt him, and hopes they can still repair their now fractured relationship, but she has to stop Peter and help her God-daughter, Maxie from making the biggest mistake of her life, so she leaves him to go back to the scene of the double-wedding.

Later in the week, Anna shares a heartfelt scene with her ex Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers), whom she knows she can have an honest conversation knowing her life of espionage and their shared history.  Meanwhile, Jackie (Kim Delaney) and Finn’s pull is there as well, as it appears Jackie’s attraction to Finn still remains all these years later when he visits her shortly after being blindsided by Anna at the nuptials.

Throughout the week, Easton and Hughes played all the nuances of their character’s emotional life, as the audience witnessed which just might be the end of the line for Finn and Anna.

For all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV names Michael and Finola’s work, The Power Performances of the Week.

So, let us know, what did you think of what happened to Finn and Anna? The double-wedding fiasco? Did you enjoy Michael and Finola’s scenes? Comment below.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
