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.

Only they know what is best for themselves.

Good job chad duell end your marriage with your wife

truly a bizarre response to my post… care to explain further?

Starr hang to much time micheal broke up taylor be starr ;)”


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.

that right thing to do

i say be with starr not her

i am not surprised his marriage ended. chad is gay and in the closet. a close source of mine told me chad was kissing a few men on the lips. that happened 3 months ago at a gay club. i am bisexual and a happy man and proud of it. just come out chad. it gets easier

Uhh, wow…

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

Chad is not gay…at least according to Kristin Alderson…she says they are dating and very happy. Why would it matter anyway?

OMG, that was quick!

I agree,MK

Wow! Whiplash! It feels like they got married last month. I wish him and his ex well. We all make mistakes.

this is very sad BUT at least they were mature enough to realize it was a mistake and ended the marriage…………………

Shocking I thought he would have stayed married forever he doesn’t seem the Hollywood type to have multiple marriges

Not sure how it can be an annullment… but then he’s on a soap!

Very sorry to hear that. I didn’t know he was married. They will both be fine. They are young.

I will be less critical now when soaps end marriages this quickly.

That’s too bad. Maybe they were too young.

I can’t help but wonder if he would be interested in me. Middle aged and overweight who has a crush on this youngser!

WOW! That was quick, but I guess good that they realized it sooner rather than later.

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 think they’d be totally cute together “in real life!” 🙂

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.

sad, but he’s young, wont have problem finding love that for sure.

It really is none of our business why.

24! Soooo young. He’s all the better for this…. better now….

i’m more than 1/2 his age…

stat…. some one… born in 1991 !!!!!!! is 21 !?!?!? fastest dose of reality… hits ya in the face….

er: i’m more than twice his age…. just feeling the pangs of middle age.

????? LOL…. w/ memory loss.

I wonder if he is related to the Kardashians?

Chad and Kristin are a couple. That’s why he left his wife. This is news from the set.

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.

Chad and Kristen Alderson are together now!

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.

Chads marriage was anulled in December 2012.

The marriage annulment was actually completed in June, 2013 and originally filed in January, 2013 by C. Duell

Oh sorry I was just going by the article that it was annulled last year

Two words: Kristen Alderson.
Their chemistry on & off set is undeniable.

General Hospital’s Maurice Benard Defends Sonny Going Postal, “It Could Definitely Happen”

Last Friday’s May 17th cliffhanger of General Hospital saw Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) beating up Dex (Evan Hofer) and threatening to shoot and kill both Dex and Jason (Steve Burton), who is restraining him outside the ballroom at the wedding reception of Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) and Chase (Josh Swickard).

For months, Sonny has been taking less than his prescribed dosage of medication to control his bipolar disorder.  The mobster has no idea that he has been duped by Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart), who is the one that set this dangerous situation in motion, in an effort to eliminate Sonny and eventually Jason from interfering in Pikeman taking over the territory.

One fan questioned the validity of Sonny’s reaction to Dex and Jason after the pei, when he took to X and expressed, “People off their medications don’t necessarily go around hitting people and being out of control. This was the WRONG message to send. I don’t expect anything from Frank Valentini and General Hospital anymore, but you could’ve (and should’ve) stopped it cold.”

Maurice Benard replied back to that comment and defended the actions of Sonny given the circumstances. The three-time Daytime Emmy-winner shared, “This is true but when you have a character like Sonny who’s volatile and is drinking and is manic and his thoughts are taken him over it could definitely happen like I said, ‘bipolar ain’t pretty.”‘

GH has portrayed Sonny’s battle with mental illness and the importance of keeping on your meds, plus the issues surrounding it for years. However, some fans have not been pleased by this latest plot point.


The pick-up of the story begins tomorrow on Monday, May 20th where teasers for the episode share: Sonny is horrified. Blaze consoles Kristina (who walked in on her dad threatening Jason and Dex) and Jason summons Carly.

So, what did you think of the plot point of Sonny threatening to kill Dex and Jason, after beating up Dex, given his growing paranoia? Comment below.

Giovanni Mazza On Contract at General Hospital: What Are Your First Impressions?

This week, General Hospital introduced newcomer Giovanni Mazza in the role of Giovanni Palmieri, who apparently is Brook Lynn’s (Amanda Setton) second cousin, one removed or so the story goes.

The character of Gio showed up at Brook Lynn’s wedding to Harrison Chase (Josh Swickard) and played the violin at the ceremony. As has been previously reported, Mazza in real-life is a professional violinist and actor.

Upon making his first appearance on the ABC daytime drama series back on May 15th, fans wondered if Gio will be sticking around and that was confirmed by the closing credits of the May 17th episode where Mazza’s name is included along with other contract players.

When the news of Mazza’s casting was announced, the talent young man took to his Instagram and shared the good news, expressing, “I am so honored, grateful, and ecstatic to announce the big news! The biggest thank you to General Hospital for bringing me.” He closed his sentiments with “So much love and joy to my new fam! YAY!!! ”

Commenting on his post included new castmates Evan Hofer (Dex) saying, “Happy to have you brother,” plus Tabyana Ali (Trina), Eden McCoy (Joss) and ABC executive Nathan Varni who said, “Congratulations! Welcome to GH!

During the May 17th episode, Gio had an exchange with Dex, where he mentioned that his father was in the military back in early 2000’s.  Previously, Gio revealed to Chase that his father died in the military when he was young. So this begs the question, who is Gio’s dad?

What were you first impressions of Giovanni Mazza in the role of Gio? Who do you think he might be romantically involved with and might be also related to other than the Cerullos? Comment below.

Michael Easton Shares on the Loss of Kamar de los Reyes, “I Was Holding His Hand When He Passed”

For the first time publicly, General Hospital’s Michael Easton (Finn) opened up about losing his best friend, the late Kamar de los Reyes (ex-Antonio, OLTL) to cancer.

The former One Life to Live and All American star lost his battle to cancer back on December 24, 2023 at the age of 56. De los Reyes leaves behind his wife, actress Sherri Saum (ex-Sunset Beach, OLTL) and their twin boys, Michael and John, and his eldest son, Caylen from a previous relationship.

Easton along with Y&R’s Trevor St. John (Tucker) were both castmates with Kamar during their time on One Life to Live. The two shared their remembrances this past Thursday night during’s live virtual event, Daytime Stands Up – A Benefit for Stand Up To Cancer … We All Have a Story.

In tribute, Michael expressed, “It was a 30-year friendship with Kamar. We did our first movie together in 1990. I was scared and I was quiet and I was instantly drawn to his bravado and his sense of himself. Kamar was larger than life. He was the best man at my wedding, and I am the godfather to his son, Michael. His loss was profound on all of us.”

He added, “There hasn’t been a day gone by that I haven’t thought of him, and his family and what he brought to this world, and the contributions he made, not only to this acting community. He loved being an actor and he was a great actor. I always like to say Kamar was such a good actor that they cast him as a priest, not just once, not twice, like seven times. I mean, he was often shirtless. But, if you needed a shirtless priest, Kamar was your guy.”

When discussion turned to the end of Kamar’s life, Michael shared, “I was holding his hand when he passed, and he was surrounded by family and, and friends. There was so much love around him. I mean, he touched so many lives. I mean, Trevor knows that at his memorial, it was the biggest, at Forrest Lawn. They couldn’t even fit everybody in. There was people stretched out all the way to outside. People showed that hadn’t seen him in 20 years. That was the effect. So many of the One Life cast members came and cast from All American.”

Michael also spoke to Kamar’s determination till the end and his incredible work ethic, “Extraordinarily enough, he went to work two weeks before he passed at All American.  He was fierce to the end. He never talked about being sick. Even though the odds were stacked from the very beginning, and it’s still really hard for me to talk about, but I was in awe of his strength and his resolve. I would’ve shut down long before he did.”

If you haven’t done so watch below 46:47 mark for Michael and Trevor’s emotional appearances on Daytime Stands Up as they share their memories on Kamar.
