i like your interviews but video is very faulty fyi maybe can fix?

Thank you so much for the interview with Dominic Zamprogna. Love him on GH!

I love Maurice Benard!
Thanks for this great interview.

I find it even more interesting that the GH writers directly take s/l ideas from the biggest MB/Sonny hater board ever: soapcentral.com! If you go there you’ll see that the same discussions on verbal abuse & etc…thus his likely hood to actually beat a woman were held weeks ago. :rolleyes: The posters frequently complain that their ideas were taken without due credit! Interesting that the mods for the SC board help those same posters target MB/Sonny fans, fans of all of his pairings (including Sexis) & even have them banned. I have the emails to prove it! Again, clearly GH never appeases haters when it comes to Luke, Jason or now even Johnny! I have long agreed that the reeee-writing for Sonny’s character has crossed the line, but now it’s to a point of being way beyond racially stereotypical or offensive!

I am please to see that the voting has elevated his status to #1 in terms of his acting! However, I feel that GH is working to appease the glass ceiling by not choosing to write well for MB, an actor who has contributed so much to soaps, and now Alexis! This is just a continuation of the industry’s disingenuous agreement with diversity! Clearly MB wouldn’t have been invited to read for a doctor, lawyer, husband/father or even cop on the show! So MB took what little they offered him & made the s/l so successful that they were able to use it to add/prop additional characters! The other actors (including T. Geary) credit MB with being the center or magnet for the show! So why then is the character of a…. veteran….award-winning actor being written so poorly in stark contrast to even the newcomers on this show? The later is familiar story with most successful minority artists/actors! It is no surprise that the wishes of Sonny or Alexis fans are the least considered by Abc/Disney or that we are the only groups asked to lower our expectations! In terms of diversity: a character that is written poorly is as much a step backward as the exclusion of diversity.

Michael is right its all about the computer, on my HP mini the videos play very smooth but on my older computer they are choppy all i had to do was pause for a minute and then it was fine:] Thanks so much for uploading Michael, also i was wondering your thoughts on Drew Garretts firing?? whats going on there i have never seen that before were they get rid of such a talented actor, whats the reason?

Thank you Michael for Dom and Julie’s interview. Dom is the best thing that’s happened to GH. He is truly an amazingly talented actor. I hope he wins an Emmy next year. He deserves it! He and Julie bring out the best in each other. Their chemistry is off the charts. I love my Lante. They’re the best couple on the show!

I couldn’t agree more. Dominic is a fantastic addition to a high profile Soap Opera and he has brought the right amount of drama, emotional turmoil, sexiness and humbleness to the show. I have never been more hooked to any TV character as I am with Dominic. I hope he is around for a long time and that Dom & Julie remain the steadfast couple I feel they should be!

Bravo GH writers and directors!!! Finally, a character with soul! Dante, played by Dominic Z. is a brilliant stroke of casting and writing. His chemistry with Lulu harkens back to the magic of Luke of Laura. What is most compelling about these two is that they are relatable, real. Uh-huh. We viewers finally can watch soap actors who we can relate to. Their on-screen circumstances are believable (for the most part). Lulu has a job that’s believable, so does Dante. She has inner turmoil that’s believable, having had a teen pregnancy. He is the son of a single mom…lots of good fodder that keeps them relevant. I hope that GH writers don’t mess up the magic now. The beauty of DAnte and Lulu is that they are more real than many Soap characters and their circumstances are ones we can identify with. Keep us watching by keeoping the plot realistic. Trash the Brooke Ashton interference. It’s an unnecessary layer that gets in the way.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Brook Lynn and Chase’s Wedding Reception Brings a Beatdown for Dex

On Friday’s, May 17th episode of General Hospital, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) and Chase’s (Josh Swickard) wedding reception was the focal point as the touching celebration for the newlyweds got underway.

Sonny (Maurice Benard) was seething over seeing Dex mingle with the guests. With Dex becoming a cop, and ratting him out to Anna, previously Sonny feels betrayed by his former hit man. However, Sonny’s growing paranoia and mental stability is in question, in particular, because he has been off the proper dosage of meds for months now.

Later, when Sonny sees Dex talking with Gio (Giovanni Mazza) about serving in the military, and later chumming it up with Cerullos, he is about to go postal.

Outside the ballroom. Sonny confronts Dex about chatting it up with the Cerullos, who he says are his people. He warns Dex to stay away from his family. Dex says he was invited to the reception.

Next, Sonny calls Dex a snitch, a spy, and lets him know he is “lucky to be breathing.”  Sonny issues Dex a warning to stay away from his family, or he may not be breathing much longer.

As Sonny turns to walk away., Dex grabs him by the arm to try to reason with him and to and say he’s not his enemy. However, Sonny throws a punch. In the pickup, Sonny continues to bloody and beatdown Dex, until Jason (Steve Burton) arrives on the scene and restrains Sonny.

Kristina (Kate Mansi) walks in on the moment. She sees her father is yelling that both Jason and Dex are traitors. Sonny screams that they are both dead and he’s going to put a gun to their heads.

In happy news, Brook Lynn and Chase finally begin their wedding night when they jump onto of their bed in their honeymoon suite. Chase says now they have a great wedding night, which will be followed by a great honeymoon, and that will be followed by their entire life together. They share a kiss.

So, what did you think of Sonny’s explosive words and actions against Dex and Sonny? Will Kristina figure out what is going on with her dad, once and for all? Comment below.

Mulcahey was named to the position back in January of 2024 along with longtime GH writer Elizabeth Korte. They replaced the team of Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor, who had been the head scribes of the long-running ABC daytime drama since 2019.

A source informed Soap Opera Digest that stories created by the co-head writing team of  Mulcahey/Korte team will air through mid-summer. However they added “There will be more news to share at a later date as to the composition of the new writing team.”

In addition, eagle-eyed soap fans have seen that in recent episodes former co-head writer, Chris Van Etten has been credited, as he is reportedly a breakdown writer with the show.

Soap Opera Network is reporting that Korte has assumed the head writing duties solely on her own at the moment, while Buzz blog initially reported Mulcahey’s exit.
