Since Vinessa Antoine is exiting General Hospital to star in new Canadian drama series Diggstown, the powers-that-be at the series have decided to recast the role of Jordan Ashford, as previously noted.

Now comes word today from Soap Opera Digest that GH has found their new commissioner as actress Briana Nicole Henry steps in to the role at the PCPD.

Henry will begin shooting new episodes this month, which means look for nuJordan to appear sometime in September on the ABC drama series. Antoine has played the role since 2014.

This is not Briana’s first foray into soaps; while attending USC she was tapped for a recurring role on The Young and the Restless. 

In primetime she has appeared on” NBC’s Undateable, CW’s Jane the Virgin, ABC’s Stitchers, and more recently the HBO movie, Insecure. 

So, ready to give Briana a chance as the recast Jordan?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

She looks the part…

I already like her better than the previous Jordan!

I think Kristina and Terry are going to become a couple

Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!

Absolutely, she’ll be given a chance by me. Unfortunately I don’t watch the show anymore these days, but if the show can lure me back, I’d be interested in checking out the new actress.

I will sincerely miss Vinessa Antoine, but she is going to shine on Diggstown, and I am hoping that an American network or streaming platform picks the series up! As for her replacement, welcome Briana Nicole Henry! I wish her nothing but the best; I vaguely remember her from The Young and the Restless, and feel as if she’s going to be great in the role!

I am absolutely ready to give her a chance. All actors coming onto the show, whether they are recasts or not, deserve the opportunity to show what they can do and what they can bring to the show. Sometimes the recasts are better than the actors they are replacing (and sometimes they are not). So, welcome Ms. Henry to GH and the role of Jordan!

I’m gonna go with you on that, Mister Media. Some recasts (Billy Miller and Gina Tognoni on Y&R; Laura Wright on GH) have been spectacular successes, so why not give the gal a chance?

The Jordan character has No Purpose.
That character is void of a personalty= blah.
Jordan should have been gone a long time ago.

Curtis should be the commissioner.

So, as for the recasting of Jordan well, it was not necessary, and I am not feeling anything over it.

SuOOO, maybe she will bring more to the role of Jordan, than V.A. Maybe it wasn’t the character we didn’t care for, so hopefully our newbie will bring in a breath of fresh air. I remember liking her on Y&R. Hey, I am trying to convince myself here too!

Hi Violet ..
It has nothing to do with the actor its the character.
Jordan is beyond empty. She does nothing of interest
Jordan is just there like wallpaper.
I highly doubt these writers will do anything differently with the character.

0ooh lordy! the/her upcoming ‘therapy’ session – I will FF through that stale junk, I have zero interest in watching their therapy 0ooh for the boring misery. LOL

Jordan needs to be recreated and given a gripping personality other than a doorknob.

@su…You have so nailed the very essence of the character of Jordan…save for her initial appearance as TJ’s long-absent mother, she’s never had any real point for existing in Port Charles….most especially as a really ineffectual PCPD commish when GH already had plenty of others who could have far more plausibly filled that role: Mac, Anna or even a returning Scorpio or Frisco. It never made any sense to put this character in that position just as a means of keeping her in town. I also didn’t care for her pairing with Curtis…he could do much better, so I guess I agree with Aunt Stella on that matter! Lol….Still, having said that, I already find this recast more appealing and likable…

Hi, Shabelle,
Agreed! I like Mac and Felicia….and, Jordan is not relevant: well put ny you and su.
Curtis is HOT!! Thus, if we must have a Jordan, I’d rather see Briana strut her pumps…..

Nice

She is beautiful and the has the right hair style. Curtis will like her. 🙂

She def looks more like a commissioner than Vinessa. I liked her a lot but just did not like her as the commissioner.. Good luck to both!!

She is beautiful–a far cry…..

Celia Sweetheart, you crack me up‼️

Hi, my lady, Fanny,
My reply to you did not pass muster, LOL….
Happy to hear from you and glad to put a smile on your face….
Too much idiocy going on in our world….we need to laugh, we need to smile, we need to just be us.
❤️

Dearest CeeCee,
Delightful & correct as always…laughter keeps us smiling &
that’s a good place to be.

I was hoping for Mishael Morgan

She wasn’t going to go from front burner storyline to back burner…

Me as well, Susan. But I am hoping that MM will play Curtis’s ex girl friend whom Stella contacted. She would be amazing with Curtis. I can already see the fireworks….or the train going through the tunnel–choose your favorite metaphor.

From the first time “Jordan” was introduced, everything about the character seemed pretty bogus. She’s a DEA agent who just happens to be assigned to bust the Jerome organization in the same little town where she sent her son TJ to live years earlier. Then when she can’t bust Julian, she’s fired from the DEA and somehow winds up as some “special agent” who is supposed to bust Sonny, but all she does is arrest Sonny’s underling (Shawn) for a crime (shooting Hayden) he didn’t even commit. And for all that she’s rewarded with the job of Police Commissioner! Most of the time she just stands around wondering what’s going on while other people are out doing the legwork. It’s such a stupid character, I can’t believe they’re even recasting it.

She is lovely!

She looks like she will fit in perfectly. Very pretty and same hair like the previous Jordan 🙂

Except, Susan, Briana’s hair is her own.

I agree with a few others; why is Jordan police commissioner to begin with? They got rid of Mac, replaced him with Anna and replaced her with Jordan. So they took two vets, one who they discarded from the show completely to make a completely new character the the head of the police. It’s beyond obvious that this is attempted “diversity.” There should be a way of incorporating people from all backgrounds on to shows (and not just African Americans) without getting rid of established beloved characters like Mac who should have stayed the commish.

With that said I like Vinessa; liked her since another show I’d seen her on “Being Erica” and I wish her well in her new endeavor. I’m not familiar with this actress but she’s stunning.

I loved “being Erica”!

Great; wasn’t it? Shame that they ended it.

Rebecca, as I said before, Jordan would have made a much better floor manager at Forever 21. I really never saw her as a police commissioner. Civilians are constantly solving crimes for her as well as apprehending criminals, and yet, she accepts the credit for a job well done. I am afraid this character has been written as being dumber than a box of rocks.
But I bet she’d be fantastic at merchandising the Forever 21 stock!

Hey, Harry! Long time; I just mentioned you were MIA. Glad to see you’re back.

Maybe with a new actress they’ll also think of a more creative story for the character, starting with dumping her ummmmmm…behind…as the commissioner and reinstating Mac. Ugh. That’s not going to happen….

Best wishes!

I am disappointed that Vinessa is leaving the show but wish her the best on her new show.

Absolutely eager to see Briana to GH!

Hopefully she can act!

Curtis really got the best deal in this recast!

I do not like the recasting Vinessa was so amazing I am going to have difficulty accepting this new acter who is nothing like Vinessa in any shape or form.
This is so sad and difficult!!+

I think shes a believable Jordan, very pretty!

‘The Talk’ Renewed For 15th and Final Season to End in December; Does Its Cancellation Make Room for ‘The Gates’?

Things just got very interesting over at CBS daytime with the announcement today that The Talk is going to end its run on the network after its 15th season, and that season looks to be shortened as the series will come to its conclusion in December of 2024.

In a joint statement, Amy Reisenbach, President, CBS Entertainment and David Stapf, President, CBS Studio, shared, “The Talk broke new ground when it launched 14 years ago by returning daytime talk to CBS with a refreshing and award-winning format. Throughout the years, it has been a key program on CBS’ top rated daytime line-up as it brought timely, important and entertaining topics and discussions into living rooms around the globe.”

Reisenback and Stapf added, “It goes without saying that hosting and producing a year-round talk show is no easy task, and we express our sincere gratitude to our amazing hosts Akbar Gbajabiamila, Amanda Kloots, Natalie Morales, Jerry O’Connell and Sheryl Underwood, our Executive Producer/Showrunner Rob Crabbe and the hardworking producing team and crew.

Giving props to those who co-hosted or worked on the show through the years including: Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen Moonves, Carrie Ann Inaba Leah Ramimi, Marissa Janet Winokur, Holly Robinson Peete, Eve, Aisha Tyler, and Sharon Osbourne, the joint statement added, “We also want to acknowledge our former show hosts and colleagues who contributed throughout the seasons. We truly appreciate the skill, creativity, and dedication everyone involved brought to the show every day.  And of course, we thank the numerous guests who appeared, and the millions of viewers who tuned in daily. For the final season, we plan to celebrate the show and give it the proper sendoff it deserves when it concludes in December 2024.”

While no firm decision or announcement has been given at this time, it seems most likely that The Talk’s time slot could be given to the new soap opera in development The Gates from CBS Studio Ventures and from longtime soap opera writer. Michele Val Jean.  As previously reported, The Gates features the lives of a wealthy Black family who reside in a posh, gated community.

The Talk was originally the brainchild of Sara Gilbert, who had developed the show when it launched back 2010 and it replaced the beloved As the World Turns which went off the air after 54 years when CBS canceled it.

So, what do you think of The Talk being canceled? Will this make room for The Gates to begin to air in its spot beginning in 2025? Share your reactions to the news via the comment section.
