Back in September of 2012 soapers will remember that General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael Corinthos) married his sweetheart Taylor Nowack in Duell’s home state of Arizona!

However in a recent item from ABC Soaps In Depth, Chad told the publication the  marriage did not work out and sadly the couple annulled their marriage late last year.

Duell reflected on why the marriage failed to SID citing:  “It was just too soon. I think we weren’t ready.”  But he also noted that, “It is the best thing for both of us!”

Are you surprised that Chad and Taylor’s marriage ended so quickly?  Let us know your thoughts.

Sassy:

Reading the responses on this site is what makes it enjoyable….. I came to yours and it makes no sense…. the ENTIRE sentence is BUTCHERD UP. Sometimes we can get pass mispellings, BUT when the sentence itself is ‘ butchered up “, it makes for BADreading. Take the time and read it back to yourself, before you press send, bc seriously…. this writing is below first grade level, and WORST, its only (1) one sentence!!!! We’re adults on this site.

Gary – if Chad is gay, are you sure coming-out will make life easier for him? Trust me, sometimes it doesn’t get easier.

All I can say is that his chemistry with Kristen Alderson is off the charts. Not onscreen, but in their homemade videos. Could they be more than friends? Just a theory.

I will never understand why kids think it’s such a great idea to get married so young…especially when you are in the entertainment business. NEVER works out and its just so naive to think differently.

Good thing they found out sooner than later that the marriage wasn’t working. Good luck Chad.

He is just to young and Kristen is also very young,they should not rush into anything,sad that his marriage ended,at least no children were involved. There is a lot of temptation in the business they are in and sometimes you can get so caught up in your storyline that it follows you into your private life.

Thought he was married but when I watched the Emmys I heard Kristen Alderson refer to Chad as the love of her life. That made me wonder if he was still married.

General Hospital

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?

TODAY: General Hospital Rebroadcasts Masterful 52nd Anniversary Episode

Fans are in for a treat today (Friday, May 22nd) when ABC’s General Hospital airs an encore presentation of one of the finest hours of soap opera in the history of the genre, with its 52nd anniversary episode from April 1, 2015.

In the episode, viewers finally learned what turned Luke (Tony Geary) into Fluke, which has been the on-going story for months; but it all lead up to the shocking reveal, when Luke revisited his past in his broken down childhood home and the demons that haunted him.

The episode goes from black and white to color, as Geary plays two roles: Luke and his abusive father, Tim, in one of the greatest performances of his career.

It is there we finally see Luke’s mother, Lena, played to perfection by Laura Wright (Carly).  And, it is in these scenes we meet for the first time Chloe Lanier as a young Patricia Spencer, who was so good, she was later cast as Nelle.  Playing the young Luke in another powerful performance was Joey Luthman,

Throughout the twists and turns, viewers learn that Luke not only killed his father, but accidentally killed his own mother who he loved.  It was a harrowing moment of deeply repressed memories.  The ending in the present time also features the Spencer family rallying around a distraught Luke in the hankie-inducing final scenes.
