GENERAL HOSPITAL: Is This It? Is Fluke Really Bill Eckert?

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

General Hospital kicked the mystery of the identity of the evil Fluke this week into high gear by laying the groundwork that Fluke could actually be Luke’s (Tony Geary) lookalike cousin, the believed-to-be-dead Bill Eckert! Even Luke asked Fluke if he is really Bill Eckert!

The story picked up steam with Barbara Jean (Bobbie) Spencer (Jackie Zeman) had a run-in with Fluke, and Fluke has become unglued and unnerved by both her and Luke talking about Bill Eckert!

On Friday’s episode, Bobbie had to relive some of her difficult childhood memories by going back to the Spencer home where she and Luke grew up, and that is where Luke is being held in the basement by Fluke! Bobbie even mentioned to Michael (Chad Duell) that her and Luke had a sister named “Patricia”!

There was also the mention this week about Jenny Eckert, Ned’s  (Wally Kurth) ex-wife who is the executor of Bill’s estate, who Michael got in touch with.  Michael wants to turn the old house of Bobbie and Luke’s into the AJ Quartermaine clinic!  At the end of Friday’s episode, Fluke uses a baseball bat to illustrate to Luke how he wants to crack Bobbie’s head with it! Luke his horrified as Fluke seems to becoming unraveled!

After the jump, watch a moment from this week’s GH, when Luke asks Fluke if he is indeed Bill Eckert? Then weigh-in! Do you think this is it now… is Fluke going to be officially revealed to be Bill Eckert? Or, do you think this is another red herring, and Fluke is someone else? Comment below!

I’m SO over this storyline, I understand why it was dragged out, but enough already. Oh, and I don’t think Fluke is Bill Eckert. I’m just ready to see (real) Luke back with Tracey.

I think GH just ran out of ideas as to who FLUKE was so they are now making him Bill.
This storyline has gone nowhere and you mean to tell me that BILL is in charge of Helena, Faison & Jerry ??? come on … this is GH writing as they go along and as much as I love Tony Geary and would love to watch him 24/7, I’d rather see him in a great romance or something and NOT with Tracy btw.

I have watched GH for nearly 40 years. This is the worst I have seen it. The stroy lines are not good and they are dragging on and on and on and on and on.. They aren’t even good ones. I was tired of the whole Luke thing a long time ago. Also the Jason thing.. I don’t like the story line and again it is dragging on and on and on and on.. Please move forward and get some more interesting story lines. I missed the last 2 1/2 weeks I taped them and can’t even get through watching… Read more »

NO…Fluke is really Patricia,Luke’s sister…she was always insanely jealous of Luke…Luke won many awards and much praise as an outstanding athlete when he joined the boys little league baseball team Port Chuckie Cheeses…Patricia wanted to join the same team but couldnt because she was a girl…an unsympathetic Luke told her its a mans world…Pat wanted revenge…with the help of Lukes enemy, Helene Cassidine, Pat had a sex change to become a man and a Lukealike, and told Helene she will help her destroy Luke as payment…she would help Helene also get hold of ELQ which would be the Cassidines cover… Read more »

you said it perfectly : “camp, LAZY, crazy”

the ONE thing that’s holding me at bay

that Helena… strongholds and has her mind control intact
and plays with Nikolas and Jason… and they never find out… what two effervescent strongwilled men to parlay an audience feast

they are completely unaware, and with abandon… share endorphin satiate

I agree with Jim H. The Theory of NSC saying that it is really Tim, Luke and Bobbie’s father – is an interesting idea also. But before seeing that Theory – the thought popped into my head that Fluke is really the long-lost sister, Patricia (that for 50 years of GH – we never heard one word about – for real GH Writers and Producers?) Patricia had a sex-change operation and made her new “male” face look exactly like her brother’s – who she hates! Don’t laugh too loud – GH has been known to do even dumber things!

Mary SF

I am of four minds on where this might go. The obvious answer that Fluke is Bill. The possible twist route, where Bill had a unknown twin brother and Fluke is that brother. The most bizarre direction where we find out Fluke is Luke’s sister Patricia, who isn’t dead, had a surgery and a sex change operation to look like Luke for reasons yet to be revealed. Or finally there still a chance that Fluke is Luke who went crazy and the Luke we see, is merely a figment of his ( Fluke’s) imagination and on Monday’ show we see… Read more »

Mary I do not keep up with this show like you do and the rest but what I have noticed is has anybody ever seen the two Lukes together like when he has been supposedly at the sanitarium now the basement? I am inclined to believe RC is taking a page out of the Stephen King novel “The Dark Half” that would be much more interesting.

I jokingly said Fluke is Patricia yesterday to CeeCee and today right above yours and some of us once discussed how Fluke is really Luke brainwashed by Helene and how he, as Fluke, is unaware there was never was an imposter but whoever he is the well has run dry on this storyline and it needs to end soon, and hopefully not at the nurses ball like i jokingly once said…lol

Kay, love your idea the best. I would love to see that Fluke is an externalization of his darker self. Luke has always been rather dualistic. He was first introduced to us as Frank Smith’s henchman, and he raped Port Charles town sweetheart, Laura Spencer. Later they turned Luke into a cartoon-like superhero who saved Port Charles from the big Cassadine freeze out. Tony Geary didn’t like how Luke suddenly became a one dimensional good guy and he always resented how Bill Eckert left the canvas. I can’t say for sure whether Fluke is an alter of Luke’s, if he’s… Read more »

GH50
Guest

It needs to be Bill because enough is enough already. TPTB think that drawing out reveals are interesting. What is interesting, in the hands of good writers, is getting a reveal in a proper amount of time, letting the audience in and then telling a story that delves into characters and motivations. Keeping people guessing and throwing out mixed signals and prolonging reveals, does not create suspense, it creates annoyance and IMO is done in the absence of having to write an intricate and engaging story for the audience.

Mary SF

Ahh yes I have always believed telling a good soap story is a bit like making love. You have to have the right amount of foreplay– not too much or too little, build up to a great climax, thereby leaving one and all deeply satisfied . But lousy soap writing like lousy lovers leave you feeling frustrated and wishing it was over with because you got better things to do with your time– LOL.

Oooooo, Mary….juicyyyy! Now, we see your true self coming out….I like it…LOL.
Well, I do not know the back story of this Bill Eckert. And, I too, am tired of this never-ending storyline. But, although in bad taste….that’s moi…..I found yesterday’s basement scene between Luke and Fluke so ridiculously funny….you know? Fluke swinging the bat this way and that, pretending to be smashing Bobbi’s head?…..and the intense pailful, shocked look on Luke’s face? IMO, that scene was remarkable….mahhhhvelous . (Kids, don’t try this at home)

Shay
Guest

CeeCee…I’ve found a lot of Cartini’s storylines to be ridiculously funny….especially those when their intentions were clearly not that! Believe you me, I have LMAO’d my way through many scenes that I’m sure they thought were just the most heart-rending, emotionally dramatic moments ever captured on a soap soundstage… when they were in actuality just over-the-top camp and poorly-acted camp, at that! (Not that I would ever put TG’s efforts in that category….the man’s talent can make the most of any material he is handed! But having said that, I am definitely “Fluke-weary”….yet not “Geary-weary.”)

Why? That would mean this story would be dragged out even MORE. I’m glad Tony is back because it means that hopefully by February Sweeps this story will be done and over with. I thought from the beginning it was Bill, and while I didn’t watch GH back in the 90’s, was Bill ever this evil? From what I’ve heard about him, he wasn’t. Maybe it’s Bill’s son, Sly, who got plastic surgery and wants to avenge his father’s death? That was my other theory. I like the whole Luke is brainwashed angle, that Helena manipulated Luke’s mind into believing… Read more »

What if Sly turns out to be Fluke, who took the face of his father, Bill, and wants to avenge his death? I think that would be an interesting twist and a good use of the show’s history. My problem with Fluke turning out to be Bill is that the writers would be bringing yet ANOTHER character back from the dead to facilitate a story, and it’s too obvious because the whole doppelganger plot device has been done before with these two characters.

Tony Geary and Jackie Zeman== it is awesome to have them on my screen..
I love how RC has gone back in history right down to their childhood home..
(FV and RC are nostalgic guys 🙂

This story is at its’ end and Tony has given a performance of his life BRAVO!!!
The acting and the writing has been superior! ! A great legacy for Tony..

I’m looking forward for the next stories to come; Jake/Jason with Helena..
and= to see how all will get out of prison..
the new Sloane and what he will bring seems exciting.
And what will happen with Luke ..

And finally Bobbi/Jackie has finally been given some good scenes besides the almost silly, throw-away Scott/lLucy/Bobbi triangle to show how good an actress she can be. It was really creepy and moving to see her reaction to visiting the old house for the first time.

My guess: Luke and Bobbie’s sister Patricia had a sex change operation and she is now Fluke. Does anyone know: had we ever heard of Patricia before now? Why is she being talked about now? This has now gotten very strange. Time to wrap it up.

Patricia was mentioned a few times over the years mostly dating back to the 1970s. She never appeared on screen but was talked about. And it’s not a sex change story line…

Maybe Patricia really was born a man but crossed dressed up until he was twenty. Then he stopped cross dressing during his teens and subsequently fathered Sly. Remember during the Nurse’s Ball Luke did a number from La Cage La Aux Follies called “I Am What I Am?”
Okay, I sound ridiculous and crazy but that is what Ron has driven me to which I think was his plan all along–to torture his viewers with his Riddle me This Fluke story.

Or perhaps “Patricia” was a “Mighty Hermaphrodite,” hence “Fluke” was already halfway there….no extra, additional parts required?????

I like Michael…a lot…and should he actually go down those steps I have no doubt he can take down Fluke.

Great, complex character…sensitive boy, conflicted man. Go get him, Michael!

This begs the retort, speak for yourself, Sue. I care and so do a whole lot of viewers. Laura was before your time so you do not get that while she is part of Luke’s past, she is also part of who he is today.
These stories are begging for the return of Laura. She is missed by the tried and true GH fans which you really don’t seem to part of despite your impersonation of a GH cheerleader on steroids.

Thank you, Harry….Although I am not necessarily one who desires a present-day Luke and Laura coupling, I certainly respect and revere the place their romance holds in the history of GH, and there will always be a part of me that would love to see them ultimately reunited when the time comes to bid farewell to the legendary Luke Spencer. Moreover, I’ve long been appalled and disheartened at the mistreatment of the character of Laura (and her portrayer, Genie Francis….) throughout the years….especially the last travesty that had her return to Port Charles with great fanfare, only to marry that… Read more »

I want Laura to be part of the Fluke/Luke story for the sake of character history. It’s great that they are trying to pay fidelity to history by involving Bobbi in the story. I wish they would follow through by bringing Laura into the situation. I just feel Luke and Laura have some unresolved issues which need to be resolved before the move on.

@ Shay – I enjoy reading your posts, as well. 🙂 We share some very similar viewpoints on some of our beloved GH characters.
@ Shay & Harry – I too, am in agreement, if Laura were to return, I’m not interested in Laura & Luke reuniting. Those days are gone.
I would love to see Laura collect Lucky in Ireland…and, they come home to Port Charles upon the release of the real-Luke. Is Jacob Young still at B&B? (I don’t follow that soap)…otherwise, David Tom could possibly make a great Lucky?

@Harry….You are so right when you say that L&L have unfinished business, even not if as a couple, then as friends, parents, family….and the palpable chemistry that AG and GF demonstrate whenever they have one of their too few-and-far-between scenes just proves that! It also shows that despite the fact that Geary is vehemently against any sort of reunion, not to mention that he and Francis seemingly have very little in common in real life, they are both consummate professionals that always rise to the occasion when the opportunity presents itself for them to meet up and make their magic.… Read more »

However, I must admit that I always admired “Felicia Gallant”….what an utterly magnificent character!

Spencer had overheard Luke and Julian and it was about getting back at Sonny. Since then, this storyline has changed about who and what it is after.

I do not know if this has been said but my theory is that Fluke is Bill and somehow Bill found out he and Luke are actual twin brothers and Patricia gave birth to them when she was maybe 13 or 14 because she was sexually assaulted by one of her father’s friends or he allowed his boss to rape his little girl. My theory after it happen the bus were separated and Patricia eventually left home under the nightmare experience.

Well at least that theory is based in some human experience that actually could happen—it could have some emotional overtones and really explore the damage child abuse has on a human soul—but I wonder can RC be that subtle. Will he give this story some heart or just go for the over the top story that is rooted more in Saturday morning cartoons than real life? I really hope you theory pans out, I would be interested in that story over say, Fluke being Luke’s sister or another brainwashed lackey of Helene’s.

I’m disappointed in you. I always look for you for good, reliable information. Don’t be taken in by the Bill Eckert theory.

I am leaning toward Helena brainwashing Luke and the “real Luke” is Luke trying to counter the brainwashing. If they make fluke Patricia then it would totally destroy the Tracey character. Are u honestly telling me that Tracey wouldn’t notice the extensive surgery to make Patricia a man.? The bill reveal has to be a red herring because no one cares about bill eckert.. A final option may be a ripoff of oltl Todd/victor jr. Storyline and there is a brother Luke never knew..

I don’t know where it’s going, but I for one am enjoying the storyline. It’s given Tony Geary something meaty to play, and he’s been knocking it out of the park, as he always does. It’s given Jackie Zeman something of substance to do, and that’s never a bad thing. It brought the tremendous Hugo Napier back as Lord Larry Ashton, and he was a riot. It’s revisiting a lot of old GH history, bringing The Eckert Family back to the forefront, a least in name only at this point.

LOL
I can not believe anybody would believe that Patricia could be Luke..
Patricia being Luke was a joke said in jest not to be taken seriously by anyone with a working brain… a sense of humor was needed lol..
for anybody to take is seriously well, there is something not right with them lol ..

KM….You made many valid and well-reasoned points, however, the one place you totally lost me was when you questioned whether RC could be tasteless enough to pursue the notion of Fluke being a trans-whatchamacallit. HELLO? Have we been watching the same show???? Based upon numerous previous offerings, being tasteless has certainly never before been a precluding factor for Cartini’s particular form of dramatic storytelling.

In a sick twisted thought….Patricia was “raped” by father., her child is the freak fluke….with Helena ‘ s help he mind controlled to hate everything Luke , reminiscent of a CARtoon SL from OLTL. (The 2 Todds).

I think “Fluke”, is Patricia who has transgendered. I think the reason Bobbie and Luke lost touch with her is shame. I think Patrica had an affair with Cousin Bil, the result being Sly. I know Bill was married, but I think Bill’s wife was Sly’s step mother. When Patricia found out that Bill had been know killed, I think she “became”, “Bill” to relieve some of the pain of losing “the love of her life. From my point of view, PFLule was so upset with Bobbie when she talked about Bill beating Sly is, that SHe couldn’t accept that… Read more »

I’m sooooooooo glad that I record my soaps just so I can fast forward thru the stuck on stupid senses as Fluk, Nuke or Luke and the never dying Helena. I hope GH will get some new writers. I know that there were more people in Port Charles who knew about Luke’s look alike cousins other than Bobbie, Sonny, Anna and Tracy. What about Carly, Lulu? Please end this story line soon!!!!!! Thank Goodness for (Remote Control)…

I was kind of hoping for a twist on “Fight Club” where Luke and Fluke are the same person, no brainwashing per Helena. Just Luke turning into a Fluke on his own volition. Now, that would be kick – ass.

I don’t know who it is but I hope they don’t drag this out until February sweeps.
I hope that it’s Anthony Zacchara. I am starting to hear his name a lot.

Bill Ekert, he is not. Too easy since it is becoming obvious? I thought maybe Fluke would be Patricia BUT Fluke sleeps with Tracy UNLESS he/she is wearing mask below the belt! Ah ha! Either way, I feel some freshness to the story and MAYBE coming to fruition in February? I am so happy to see Bobbi front and center. It was cool to see her and Michael hanging out at her old house. The ONLY thing I will nit pick at is why no Bill Eckert flashbacks? With all the talk of the old character, why no old footage?… Read more »

I have been saying from day one it’s Bill Eckert and I hope my theory is right. I didn’t watch GH that closely when Eckert was on but a little homework helped me put together some pieces of the puzzle on his motives: 1. He is after Sonny’s terrartory because Frank Smith killed him (he thought he was Luke) and Sonny now owns Smith’s terratory. I think Bill is on a power trip to own all the mob of PC so he will be invincible. 2. Early on we found out he now owns Barrett Industries-first thought of course, many… Read more »

which is a coupdetat for REAL Luke… that he figured first… and Bill Eggert would have to respond to his knowing

and it’s all fallout

this has been leap to… Anthony Geary carry call

it’s such a welcome respite from his former self… feeding off of Carly and Tracy

nothing extraordinare : just a feature of his body of work

I don’t know about it being a coup d’état, Patrick, but it was a very weak coup, of sorts……I tried studying Fluke’s face for any signs of , “how did he guess?”….. But, he was impassive.
The only ticks and irks I saw in Fluke was his combustible conversation with Bobbi. He was very defensive of Bill Eckert ….sooooo, I cannot make heads or tails about this entire travesty…fiasco.

I think FLUKE is really Luke and Bobbie’s sister Patricia who left home at an early age and had a sex change operation.

I don’t thing that Fluke is Bill Eckert, I think it is Sly Eckert taking revenge on Luke for his father being killed instead of Luke.

I know, right, jaybird? It does not seem to come to an end at all. This storyline has taken root …on and on and on to the other side of forevermore. Now that the ‘new commissioner’ holds the reins, the only logical conclusion is that both he and the mayor are in Luke’s and Helena’s pocket. Now, I am beginning to suspect that Nikolas is playing cat and mouse with his grandmother. I think he is on the ball…knows something is awry and is acting the mighty Cassadine, for her benefit. The same Jean de la Fontaine’s quote applies to… Read more »

Thanks, CeeCee!!!!! You know…at this point, whenever Luke/Fluke pops up on my TV screen, I just hit the Mute button on my TV/DVR remote control and watch GH with the sound off…LOL!!!!! And…while I’m watching with the sound OFF, I think to myself, “Hey, GH…wake me whenever that RUGGEDLY DREAMY Julian is on. Thank You!!!!!” Luke/Fluke=B-E-Y-O-N-D B-L-A-H!!!!!

Later, CeeCee. Peace.

I think fluke is frank smith and he is using bill eckerts name as an alias in case somebody figures out hes not plus his men killed bill eckert thinking he was luke that could be why so sensative to the subject of bill eckert

I read the comments and the writers at General Hospital should hire some of these commenters to write for General Hospital. I would TOTALLY watch this soap opera every day because it would be funny and thought-provoking…I laughed outloud because some of the comments are so funny and when someone brought up about it really being Luke-The dark side, it started to make sense…So, thank you all for these comments and I am going to start reading this BLOG every day because it is alot more entertaining than the soap!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alex Is ‘Wicked’ To Anna; Franco Receives Devastating Diagnosis

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it a clever play on the Broadway smash hit musical, Wicked, but no there was no singing, instead we had the always brilliant Finola Hughes, playing the good witch and the bad witch, in the form of portraying twin sisters, Anna and Alex as Halloween night comes to Port Charles.

In story, Anna, who is dressed for Halloween in white as a good witch, reads the report in front of Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that proves that Faison did not have the marker for RA (rheumatoid arthritis) which then proves that since she did not have it, nor Faison, that Alex is the biological mother of Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

All this time, as Anna says, she blamed herself for being with Faison only to find out that was a complete lie.  Anna becomes so incensed by all of Alex’s machinations that she smashes a glass just as the power goes out.  Valentin tells Anna he was also used by her sister where Peter was concerned.  Anna questions whether she should warn Peter, that Alex might be after him and his unborn child with Maxie (Kirsten Storms).  Valentin is convinced they need to get rid of Alex, before she does something to them.

 

Anna does decide Peter should show know the truth, as Valentin leaves to find out Alex’s whereabouts.  When the lights come back on at Anna’s, she is clubbed over the head by Alex who is dressed in black as a bad witch. Later, when kids come to trick-or-treat at Anna’s, she has switched places with her sister offering the kid’s candy after stashing Anna away in the basement and most-likely locking her in there.

Peter is in a whole heap of trouble as he keeps getting creepy phone calls from Helena saying they have “unfinished business”.  We later see a trap is being set by Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) and Sam (Kelly Monaco) in a secret location.  Sam is using a voice-alternating ‘Pro Tools’ like audio software program to simulate Helena’s voice to spook Peter and to set him up!

Back at the hospital, Terry (Cassandra James) delivers terrible news to Franco (Roger Howarth). His test results show he has a malignant tumor again on the front lobe of his brain, and that it is inoperable and cannot be removed through surgery.  She tells him she wants to run more tests to see what options they have.

When she asks Franco if he has developed any symptoms, he flashes back to the night at Wyndemere when Ava’s (Maura West) painting was revealed and ruined with C077x spray-painted across it and a haunting dream he had, but denies to Terry that he has had any problems as of now.  When she tells him they need to tell Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Franco says he does not want to tell her, or the boys, about this.  When Liz enters the room, Terry and Franco keep mum as to his condition, for now.

Roger Howarth showed once again why he can always be counted on to bring poignant moments to his scenes as Franco.  Be on the lookout for what happens with this story.  In a November sweeps preview in the current issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, GH head writers, Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor teased about the medical crisis that it “may hold the key to unlocking one of the biggest mysteries in Port Charles – something that has been in the works for years.”

So, what did you think will happen next in the Anna/Alex saga?  What do you think will ultimately happen to Franco? Will he become the ‘killer’ Franco again? What could be the mystery the co-head writers are referring to? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

General Hospital To Air Special Election Episode In Honor of the Passing of the 19th Amendment & Women’s Right To Vote

On the Monday, November 2nd episode of General Hospital, just before election day here in the United States, the ABC daytime drama is airing a very special episode depicting and remembering the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution.

The inspiring female cast will go back in time as Laura Wright takes on the role of Beatrice Eckert, a suffragist, who is more than ever, determined to get women to exercise their right to vote.

Key to the episode are Eden McCoy (Josslyn) and Sydney Miykala (Trina).  In the story, it marks Josslyn’s first time to be able to vote now that she has turned 18. At first, she isn’t very motivated to vote, but when she and Trina find themselves traveling back in time to 1920, things take a turn as Josslyn realizes just how important it is to exercise her right to have her voice heard and vote, as those women before her fought for their rights.

In the all female directed, written episode, also look for actresses: Maura West, Nancy Lee Grahn, Finola Hughes, Rebecca Herbst, Nicole Briana Henry, Brook Kerr, and more of the female cast to be on-screen.

The episode’s key messaging, “Voting isn’t just a right.. it’s a privilege.”   All that to say, remember, to get on vote come Tuesday.

Watch the promo below.

Emme Rylan Addresses Reports Of Her Exit From General Hospital & Update On Plans With Family

Several hours ago, Emme Rylan (Lulu) of General Hospital took to her Instagram story to talk directly to her followers, friends and fans about her rumored exit on the ABC daytime drama series, and to share some changes in where she and her family will be living.

At that time, Emme updated everyone that since the landlord sold the house she has been living in with partner Don Money and their three children, that they had not found a suitable home for them to live, in Los Angeles, after their extensive search.  So for now they were going to put their things in storage and go on an extended road trip with the entire family in tow … in a car… under Covid-19 safety protocols with her kids still distance-learning, and that she would be documenting the trip on her Instagram account,

After she shared her original update, she later went back to her Instagram story to clarify her earlier statements after many fans were following up with her asking her even more questions.

 

Rylan shared:  “I am getting a lot of questions that I cannot answer …  people are kind of being confused that maybe I chose to take a vacation or take time-off,  so the only thing I can say is “no, I did not choose this.”  I can’t say anything else.  There you go.   That’s all I am allowed to say.   So, this trip is us taking an unexpected turn of events and turning it into something positive and fun for our family. ”

Earlier on her IG story, Emme addressed the reports of her exit from Port Charles explaining: “I am not in a position to be able to comment on the work stuff, so in terms of General Hospital, I am going to keep that topic quiet. All you need to know is that I love everyone there, we all love each other, I’m okay, and all of your messages of love are amazing … I love you guys so much — but I just can’t talk about it. ”

Then as to her plans with her family she shared: “We, meaning my family and I, have decided to do something completely insane. I have never done anything like this in my entire adult life. We are currently packing up our entire house and putting it in a pod and putting it in storage here in Los Angeles, and with only our suitcases, we are going to go on a Covid-safe, epic road trip.  I have been working every single day, Monday through Friday on a soap opera since 2004?  I have only been in New York and L.A, and I have never really explored life outside of this bubble.”

So, what do you think about what Emme shared with her fans and followers? Comment below.
