General Hospital Set To Pay Tribute To The Late Susan Brown

Photo: ABC

2018 has taken with it some beloved soap opera veterans.  One of them was GH fan favorite, Susan Brown, who died at 86 of Alzheimer’s at the end of August.

GH viewers remember Susan’s performances as Dr. Gail Adamson Baldwin.  Gail was Monica’s (Leslie Charleson) best friend, and eventually she married Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and was a stepmother to Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner).

Kin took to Twitter last week and revealed that General Hospital taped a tribute to Susan that will be seen in an upcoming episode.

In a tweet, he shared, “A tribute show to Susan shot in the can airing soon!”

With GH’s tape schedule we would presume that sometime in January we will be seeing how GH addresses Susan’s passing and thus the fate of Gail.

So, are you glad to hear GH will be doing something very special to honor Susan?

Do you hope that there are major emotional scenes within it for Kin Shriner and Leslie Charleson?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

I loved Susan Brown as Gail. I even have vague memories of her in The Young Marrieds. It’s great that GH is paying tribute to her. May she rest in peace.

I looked her up– Susan Brown (May 4, 1932 – August 31, 2018) was an American television and film actress and interior designer. She was best known for her roles on daytime soap operas, particularly General Hospital; in 1979, she was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award for her role on the show. Brown’s first soap role was on From These Roots in 1959, taking over temporarily from leading actress Ann Flood.[2] Afterwards, she also subbed for Flood on numerous occasions in the role of Nancy Karr on The Edge of Night.[4] She later had regular roles on the short-lived… Read more »

I have been waiting for this. And yes, I expect some powerful scenes with Monica since I’ve made it clear many times that she is my favorite character on the show. I am hoping for some flashbacks too.

So glad they’re addressing Susan’s passing, and thus, Gail’s. She was a great actress and part of GH’s history. It’s certainly fitting.

Hope they do this right…not with Scott talking to Ava about her…Scott, Laura and Monica should be featured!!!

She was a great actress–so believable in character. Loved all her scenes with Monica Quartermaine. RIP.

It’s rare that I offer kudos to GH, but I applaud them for giving a tribute (no matter how short, as the one for Lee) to the character of Gail. Yes, Monica, Scotty, and even Laura should be included. That being said, no need for Sonny…

Very well put, Gentleman James! I couldn’t agree with you more…especially for that last sentiment! (I would also add the barmy, annoying Lucy as another unnecessary addition to this well-deserved salute to the lovely Miss Brown! The three who best knew and adored Gail are the terrific trio you mentioned..) Having said that, here’s hoping that this treasured GH character receives a tribute imbued with the abundance of class and dignity which was the standard for her portrayer….they certainly don’t make actresses of her kind these days!

Hello Shay:

Expanding on my previous reply to you about the Gail tribute, what particularly resounds with me is your comment: “here’s hoping that this treasured GH character receives a tribute imbued with the abundance of class and dignity which was the standard for her portrayer.” Susan Brown deserves that, indeed.

As for your thoughtful holiday greetings to me, I am most appreciative. Thank you for making me feel welcome. I also wish you and your loved ones a wonderful Christmas and the best in the New Year!

And thank you once again, James! I have always revered the ladies—-both onscreen and in real life!—of Miss Brown’s particular generation…They had such a grace and elegance to their presence that is, by and large, sadly missing in today’s society! Seeing them leave us never fails to make me very sad indeed! I was blessed to have many of her kind in my personal life to serve as fine examples of womanhood during my formative years, so I definitely have a more, dare I say, “traditional” ideal of females, in general…I just love dressing to the nines and observing what… Read more »

Shay, it’s great to hear about the your “fine examples of womanhood during my formative years.” I think it’s refreshing when we can pinpoint the people and events in our lives that made us who we are and honor such people. It’s a very sweet lesson you’ve shared with us today, Shay.

Thank you also for your kind words, Shay. You’ve made my day again! 🙂

Hopefully Monica, Scotty, and Laura will be front and center but part of me thinks that the show will use Gail’s passing as an excuse for Carly and Sonny to remember Morgan and reflect on their own loss…you know, ‘cause everything is about the Corinthos family.

I hope it’s a better tribute than what they did for the passing of Peter Hansen (Lee Baldwin). That episode really fell short, hardly any flashback scenes and not even a proper memorial service. So sad.

always nice to see the flashbacks of GH when you’ve been a fan for 45 years

Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes OUT at ABC and ‘GMA3’

It’s not ending well for Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes. The former GMA3 co-hosts, who had their affair come to light publicly, have been let go by ABC after a lengthy mediation session on Thursday.

Now, the network has severed all ties with Robach and Holmes and they will receive payouts of their contracts.

According to TMZ: the long mediation session was “extremely contentious,” with ABC reps accusing both Amy and T.J. of various forms of misconduct, which one source characterized as “a witch hunt.”

They go on detail that Amy and T.J were told that they did not handle their romance appropriately by waiting too long to disclose it to ABC executives.

ABC expressed that their “behavior on set” was “uncomfortable” for some ABC staff.

Page Six is also reporting that their source shared from the talks, that unless ABC reaches a satisfactory departure agreement with both Amy and T.J., they would both be looking at filing lawsuits against the network.

In additional accusations, ABC said alcohol had been found in Robach’s dressing room.  However, that was disputed as ABC executives had gifted liquor bottles to Robach and other on-air ABC talent. Robach was also accused of showing up “drunk” to work after attending the College Football National Championship last year.  Amy claims she was just tired.

So, what do you think of Robach and Holmes being given the hook by ABC and being show the front door? Comment below.

Alec Baldwin to Face Involuntary Manslaughter Charges in ‘Rust’ Shooting of Halyna Hutchins

Charges were announced today by Santa Fe District Attorney, Mary Carmack-Altwies in the shooting on the set of the film, Rust fatally killing director Halyna Hutchins.

Alec Baldwin (ex-The Doctor and Knots Landing) has been charged with involuntary manslaughter along with the film’s armorer,  Hannah Gutierrez Reed.

The D.A. outlined why the deadly on-set shooting could result in criminal charges regardless of whether it was an accident.  In a statement, she shared: “After a thorough review of the evidence and the laws of the state of New Mexico, I have determined that there is sufficient evidence to file criminal charges against Alec Baldwin and other members of the Rust film crew. On my watch, no one is above the law, and everyone deserves justice.

In charges set to be filed by the end of January, Baldwin and Gutierrez-Reed will each be charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter in Hutchins’ death.

Baldwin’s attorney, Luke Nikas, said this about the charges: “This decision distorts Halyna Hutchins’ tragic death and represents a terrible miscarriage of justice. Mr. Baldwin had no reason to believe there was a live bullet in the gun – or anywhere on the movie set. He relied on the professionals with whom he worked, who assured him the gun did not have live rounds. We will fight these charges, and we will win.”

Andrea Reeb, the special prosecutor for the case said: “If any one of these three people: Alec Baldwin, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, or David Halls (assistant director, Rust) had done their job, Halyna Hutchins would be alive today. It’s that simple.  The evidence clearly shows a pattern of criminal disregard for safety on the ‘Rust’ film set. In New Mexico, there is no room for film sets that don’t take our state’s commitment to gun safety and public safety seriously.”

What do you think about the charges levied on Alec Baldwin? Comment below.
