Enduring GH fan favorite, Rebecca Herbst, took to Twitter on Friday night to clear up any reports or rumors that may have turned up on the Soap Twitterverse.

Herbst shared the following message to fans of the ABC daytime drama series, and who have been concerned with her status with the show, or the state of her character, Elizabeth Webber.

Rebecca expressed: “Well, hello there…just thought I’d shut down some rumors that have been circulating: I haven’t been fired. I’m not on vacation. I don’t have covid. My kids don’t keep me from working. Nor do I have cramps (the best one yet ). I hope you all have a great weekend! XOXO..”

The message from Herbst sparked many of her fans to respond in kind with tweet from “Hope to see Elizabeth soon” to “Wow, we are glad to hear that! We Love seeing you on GH!”

So, hoping there is more Liz Webber on the screen soon?  What do you think of Becky’s message said with candor and a little humor?  Comment below.

Becky clarified that she wants to work. By clarifying this, it brings up more questions. They are as follows:

1. If she wants to work, why isn’t she on the screen lately in her own story?
2.Why did we just have two days worth of scenes with her three sons onscreen and she wasn’t present?
3.Why is Liz so isolated on canvas and not allowed to have regular scene partners other than a potential love interest? She only has scenes with Laura, Terri or her kids every few months while all the other contract characters have regular scenes with friends and family.
4.As “Liz’s” story progresses, why is Finn’s POV and role becoming more and more prominent than Liz’s?
5.Finally will her mom and/or dad ever make an appearance onscreen? If this story does not have Elizabeth confront her parent(s) and address her abandonment issues, then this story would have all been in vain and have just been filler.

Lol glad all is well.sometime peoples Imagination gets the best of them . See you soon . Great work .

People are entitled to time off and do not have to explain them to trolls.

It’s sad when actors have to do this. Why do people online try to talk authoritatively about actors and their professional/personal lives when they don’t know the first thing about it. Wishing Rebecca well.

I don’t really care. Your fans really do so try to be THANKFUL you have them

It’s a shame that she felt the need to make a response to these rumors – but let’s be honest why she did. It’s because after all these years of being on GH, Liz should be a lead character as much as Carly is – and yet … she’s consistently a B-story on the show. And even when she does have a story, even one’s about her, she’s not always the most featured person in her own stories. And GH once was prepared to let her go – AFTER a story about her child dying, one that should have heavily featured her – and she was on the chopping block. So, GH has had a long history of not appreciating or featuring her talent as they should. Despite her always putting in her all, despite the fact that she has had chemistry with almost all of the love interests – she somehow makes even unpopular pairings work on some level. I don’t get, I’ve never gotten why she is always held back from lead actress territory while Carly gets put in almost every story on the show and we get treated to her on a daily basis.

Exactly. The poor writing is to blame. Lizzy finally gets a front and center story line but then that storyline drives the character into oblivion.

I agree that Rebecca/liz should be on screen more or just as often as Laura/carly, I mean we are force to have Carly in her own drama and everyone else’s drama.I love me my GH but I don’t know whose in charge of how things play out on screen but its irritating that one minute her storyline was getting some momentum then it just stopped, not only that but GH has gone overboard w/ bringing in actors to fill in for those who are either to sick to come in to work or busy doing something else. STOP using fill in and instead put in more airtime on Liz story. And nothing against Laura Wright but she doesn’t have to be on almost everyday. So glad Rebecca isn’t going anywhere though.

Elizabeth is a Hardy & Webber. Carly is a Spencer. BOTH are very much needed.

But I agree that they have handled this Liz storyline completely wrong with all the buildup and then… she just disappears. I did call it correctly as an “Ambien coma” situation early on though…. never believed all the hype about “Frodd’s ghost”…. but then, I know exactly where Frodd is.

And then there’s the giant elephant in the room… or more specifically NOT in the room…. as Jeff hasn’t been in the room since 1981, and her mother (who didn’t even have a name until Jake casually mentioned it a couple months ago) has NEVER been in the room. Exactly what in Hell’s name is going on between Elizabeth and her parents?? They seemed to be moving towards answering that question, but that was quickly dropped when it became all about Frodd’s ghost & fake psychics, and then the realization that Liz was “haunting” herself, while in the Ambien zombie state.

Amen, aria. I’ve been griping for a long while about Carly and Sonny being on nearly EVERY DAY and in too many storylines. Now we have Carly’s budding flirtation with Drew, whom she kicked to the curb when Jason returned! How will she manage this while hating Nina; punishing Sonny; hiding Willow’s maternity; berating Brad for doing the same thing she’s doing; suddenly taking up yoga; colluding with Sam about Esme; enabling Michael in becoming a heartless monster; and finding the noisiest shoes in town? Talk about multi-tasking!

If Carly’s truly guilty of everything you say she is, wouldn’t you want her to have noisy shoes, so you could hear her if she was sneaking up behind you?

Soaphound
I swear, the other day I had to re-run a scene because I thought she had on wooden shoes or some clunky clogs, etc. Maybe it’s not the shoes at all but just the way she walks, certainly not feminine.

aria, frustrating as it is, the episodes are written long before they are taped. So if an actor is unavailable suddenly for sickness or surgery or whatever, they can’t just rewrite the episode on the fly. The other actors will already have been learning their lines, and they also can’t do anything to disrupt future episodes. Because they tape out of sequence, future scenes might already be recorded that depend on the previous scenes being shot as originally written, if you see what I mean. And they can’t just throw other actors into new scenes who aren’t scheduled to tape that day because that would mess with the budget. The fill-ins are weird, I agree, but with the way the show is assembled to be cost efficient, there’s really nothing else they can do, practically speaking.

Good luck ms Becky I hope you shine !

Ryan Paevey Makes Statement on Why He is Stepping Back from Acting While Being ‘Grateful to General Hospital for Giving a Green Actor a Chance’ and ‘Hallmark for Changing My Life’

GH and Hallmark fan favorite, Ryan Paevey (ex-Nathan West) wanted to clear the air after numerous reports and rumors had him quitting acting altogether and what that meant for any future projects in Hollywood he may have had planned.

Paevey released an exclusive statement to Heavy.com where he shared what is going on in his life. Back on June 19th, Ryan deactivated his Twitter and Facebook accounts and he may have deactivated his Instagram account on Friday as well, or as of this writing.

For Ryan, the decision to change his current life’s trajectory came after a series of events; chief among them moving closer to home to take care of his ailing mother who is battling lung cancer and social media scammers.

Here is what Ryan shared: “Hey everyone…so first and foremost, I am a bit apprehensive that I even have to make a statement like this. I am certainly accustomed to a certain degree of gossip, but the past few weeks in particular have gotten out of control with speculation from third parties that have taken my words and expanded upon them to meet their narrative, or flat out misrepresented my words or misconstrued their meaning. I have always been an open book, and one who speaks his mind truthfully and directly, and it is unfortunate that we live in a world where social media makes it very easy to twist one’s words; I am often unaware it is even happening until someone from my team messages me in a panic, and so I feel it best to make a formal statement through HEAVY.”

GH’s Dominic Zamprogna Opens Up on Concerns that Dante Was A-Goner: “There’s Any Number of Ways Comas Can Go”

When Detective Dante Falconeri was shot by a Pikeman henchman, and Jason (Steve Burton) was revealed alive and well, it put actor Dominic Zamprogna in a coma, and a bad one in soap terms, at that. For awhile there, it was touch and go for Dante.

The good news is Dante pulled through and is now back to his old self, and just in time for Dominic Zamprogna’s 15th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, which is June 22nd.

Dominic spoke to Soap Opera Digest on his milestone, and reflected back on the fan response from earlier this year when it may have appeared he was exiting the show for a second time.

Zamprogna shared, “It’s nice to hear you say that people were worried about me – when I went into Frank’s (Valentini, EP, GH) office and he told me I was going into a coma, I started to worry about me (laughs)!”

From working on GH for a decade and a half now, Zamprogna has seen his fair share of comas, and in fact, his then on-screen wife, Lulu Spencer Falconeri was written off the show having never awakened from her coma.

“There’s any number of ways comas can go,” said the popular GH star. “People joke, ‘Oh, you’ve got easy work.’ And it’s like, ‘Yeah, as long as it’s an on-screen coma! I don’t want to be in an off-screen coma, because then I’m not on the show!” But honestly, that means the world because we all care what people think about us, you know? And if people are happy to have me around, it feels good, obviously. I’d be lying if I said it didn’t.”

So, are you glad that Dante is still alive and kicking? Did you think the show might write-off Dante after he was shot a few months back? Is it time, as Dominic head towards his 20th anniversary with the soap opera, for the powers-that-be to bring Lulu out of her coma? Should Dante and Sam (Kelly Monaco) eventually tie the knot?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mac Comes Home

You probably needed the hankies during today’s Wednesday, June 19th episode of General Hospital, for it marked the return of fan favorite John J. York to his role as Mac Scorpio.

This was to be York’s first episode back on-screen since he underwent treatment for two blood cancers and revealed his health diagnosis and battle publicly back in September of 2023.

The scenes involving Mac gave viewers all the feels, and it looked as if reality and the soap blurred, especially in York’s scenes with his on-screen children, Maxie (who Max raised) and grandchildren, Georgie, James, and Bailey Louise, and wife, Felicia (Kristina Wagner).

Since Mac was out of town supposedly down in South America helping a ‘friend’, some things have changed, including Spinelli (Bradford Anderson). having moved in with Maxie and the kids, to which Mac does not disapprove.

In the meantime, Cody (Josh Kelly) is a man in conflict when he has second thoughts about not telling Mac he is his biological son.  When James shows up Maxie’s with Cody in tow, he lays his eyes upon the just-arrived-back-in-town Mac. The two share pleasant “hellos.” Later, back at the Quartermaine stables, Cody tells Tracy (Jane Elliot) the long and winding road story of not knowing who is father was for most of his life. Cody shares he finally found his father in Port Charles, but his father doesn’t know he has a son. Tracy thinks Cody now has a chance to re-set some things and should come clean.

Meanwhile, Felicia keeps getting calls from Maxie while she is work at General Hospital and does not pick up. So, Felicia is unaware that her husband is back. Eventually, Felicia arrives at Maxie’s and is in for a big surprise when Mac appears and the two hug and share a kiss.

After the episode aired, and seeing the reaction from GH fans, John J. York took to his account on X. York expressed, “WOW!!! I’m just so humbled by your warm, kind and gracious words as Mac returned to PC! Your support has been monumental! I have a feeling, things are about to get interesting!”

So, what did you think about Mac’s homecoming on GH? Were you touched just seeing John J. York back in action on the ABC soap opera? Comment below.
