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…

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.

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.
