General Hospital to Incorporate In-Story ‘GMA3: What You Need to Know’ Jackie Templeton & Sasha Gilmore Interview

Photo: IMDB/ABC

In a crossover of sorts, on the upcoming, Wednesday, January 27 episode of General Hospital, the daytime drama series will bring the characters of Jackie Templeton (Kim Delaney) and Sasha Gilmore (Sofia Mattsson) to its true lead-in, GMA3: What You Need to Know, but in a fictitious way for a revealing and explosive interview.

The scene is set in the Metro Court in Port Charles, and Jackie, the ace reporter and journalist has some tough questions for Sasha during their sit-down interview.  The in-story tie-in helps promote both shows in the ABC afternoon line-up.

Soap Opera Digest, who first brought the news of the mash-up in their latest issue, revealed that the moment is “being played as a remote segment for the ABC news and lifestyle program.”

However, there will be no one from GMA3 appearing on the Wednesday episode.

So what do you think will happen during the Jackie/Sasha sit-down? Comment below.

I guess it’s a way to do a PSA, but I really couldn’t care about the GMA3 promo. These “news” and talk shows bore me terrifically stiff.

Well if i am the only who now wants more than anything for Sacha to be Jackie’s daughter…

That doesn’t seem likely, since Sasha would have to be older than Chase for that story to work. And that wouldn’t appear to be the case.

Presumably Robert would be Sasha’s father in this scenario, but I’m not really seeing that either.

I agree—not Robert’s daughter. But, it’s a soap—I’m sure ‘ye gods’ could think of something to accomodate the story, if they chose to go that way. How about Cyrus’ daughter? Oh, the irony….
There are many possibilities. Way back when, I had intimated Chase ( sp?) could be Finn’s son. Now, we know Jackie and Finn had a “one-night-stand”? What if they ‘met up’ several years later and “danced” again—another procreation? Vicious circle. Repetitive plots are the heartbeat of soaps.

Considering Cyrus seemed to have some sexual interest in Sasha when he was supplying her with drugs, I would certainly hope he’s not her father! It would only be slightly less creepy if he was her uncle, so that lets out Martin as well, I would suppose. If she had to be related to any existing families in Port Charles, I’d guess she’s a Quartermaine, from either the Celia or Jimmy Lee branches of the family tree. She actually has a resemblance to Celia (for those who can remember back that far). And at least that way, she and Mikey… Read more »

OK, Iam lost here. Where does this idea come from? Why would Jackie and Sasha be related? Help!

You are not—-I thought about it, myself, Bruni. However, my “farout” notions are mainly just that. So, it’s refreshing to see someone else think the same thought —at least, in this instance.

I love the creativity & cross promotion! GH is best soap going right now.

I can not get over Carly’s over the top interest in Nina’s finding out her daughter was Nel, other than the fact that she actually had something to do with Nel’s demise.
She used to accuse Nel with being obcessed with her, but it looks like the other way around now. If she had just told the truth from the beginning, it would not have blown over.

You know, Violet, whenever a movie becomes a hit, they say that executives then get together and try to mold every subsequent film the same way. I read that way back in 1970, any new ideas for plots were met with the question, “How can it be like “Love Story?”, the biggest movie back then. I think GH execs do something similar. They sit around thinking, “How can this storyline involve Carly and/or Sonny?”

You are so right! I forgot, this IS the Carly and Sonny show but try as hard as they can, somehow there is always some other characters that make it more interesting at least to me.

I watched before I read this and frankly, I had no idea it was a “cross-over” bit. So, I guess it wasn’t made very prominent.

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Touches on Racial Profiling, Social Injustice and Bias In Key Scenes with Portia and Jordan

This week ABC’s General Hospital took the opportunity to write in to their scripts and story, the issue that has been so prevalent in our country now and for decades that of racial profiling, injustice, bias, gender equality and more rolled into scenes featuring: Brook Kerr (Portia), Briana Nicole Henry (Jordan), Sydney Mikala (Trina) and William Lipton (Cameron).

When Portia comes to the boxing gym for a workout and comes upon Jordan hitting the boxing bag hard over the the incident with Cameron in the hospital garage, it spurs a greater conversation.

Jordan tells Portia about the situation that arose with Cameron and a gun, and Portia says she heard about it.  Jordan knows if Cameron’s skin was a different color, she may not have been able to de-escalate the situation and talk her officers down, if she had not arrived on the scene in the nick of time.

This launches the two women into an important conversation on racial profiling, social injustice, white privilege and gender bias that they have found themselves dealing with in their professions (Portia is a doctor and Jordan the police commissioner) and their children’s lives.

Later in another scene, Trina reminds Cameron how they, along with Joss (Eden McCoy) were pulled over by a cop last summer when they were driving around the backroads.  She goes on to say when Cameron questioned why they were being stopped, it scared her.  She feels if Joss and Cam were not there, she would have likely been pulled out of the car and pinned to the ground by the cop.  Trina notes she put aside her fear and never said anything to them, because they would never understand.  Trina tells Cam he needs to realize how lucky he was the other night when nothing happened to him after his run in with police.

You can watch the conversation below in scenes with Briana Nicole Henry and Brooke Kerr.

Then let us know, did you like how GH wove this social message into the story?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GH’s James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Those joining Stuart and Pappas in the cast include: Hilda Spellman, Patricia Belcher, Kayden Muller-Janssen, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Lucy Davis will plays Amy’s mom, Eva aka Spark, a feisty supervillain who shoots electrical current out of her hands.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.  Stuart will be continuing his role on GH as per usual.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”

So, intrigued by this pilot and what role James will have within it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
