General Hospital's Ryan Paevey To Co-Host THE VIEW!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

Clearly, with all the drama behind-the-scenes with the women of the panel of ABC’s morning talker The View, it’s time for a man to step in and shake things up some more!

And, that guy just happens to be General Hospital heartthrob Ryan Paevey (Nathan), who will make his talk show co-host debut on the upcoming Tuesday, February 17th episode of the long-running morning show.  Glee’s Naya Rivera will also be along as guest co-host along with the Port Charles favorite.

Ryan and Naya, and the rest of the ladies of the panel, will welcome to the show John Slattery and Amy Morton, who will be on-hand promoting their new film Blue Bird.  In addition, Ella Henderson will perform her hit single Ghost.

The View has been grabbing headlines again of late for the departure of Rosie O’Donnell, who last aired on Thursday, and Rosie Perez, who was rumored to be exiting, but instead is staying put. Although, recently surfaced reports from Radar Online say she is still on her way out the door!

Ryan tweeted an image and teaser of what he was going to be going next Tuesday below!

So, what would you think if The View had a man finally join their panel in an on-going capacity? Are you looking forward to seeing Ryan co-host next Tuesday’s episode?  Share your thoughts below!

Yes! Please stay on GH! I just showed a couple co-workers one of his many, fabulous, jaw dropping, print commercial photos… saying this is fabulous eye candy I get on my soap! 😀

He is gorgeous. and a good actor! te he he I’m not surprised he got snagged to be seen by a larger audience. they’ll probably get more people turning into GH to watch him.

Damn! I was hoping this would read: “GH star Ryan Paevey set to LEAVE the soap this spring!” 🙁

The View needs to remain a woman’s panel. Stop believing that woman cannot get along.

Women are more catty BUT no mater the sex, if you get people in a room conversing about issues, they will disagree, man or woman.

He’s not an addition. He’s just a guest host for the day.

It will be interesting to see how he survives the ladies on The View. Someone probably told him it was a good career move. We’ll see. One of the comments said that The View is in NY, GH in L.A. Going to be hard to juggle both. But it’s not the first time ABC has used one of their actors/hosts on two different shows.

Rose…he’s not becoming one of the hosts. It’s just a one time guest host appearance.

Robert Seganti

Next they will force him to appear on The Chew.
ABC is run by morons, Brian Frons may have been a particularly despicable one,but the executive suites at the networks are populated by many more of these losers who wield a great deal of power
and don’t know what they are doing.ABC/Disney is all about brand promotion and cross-promotion -not about providing quality entertainment for the audience.
The View should have been put out of its misery (and the audience’s)a long time ago.It’s a disgrace.

richard

What makes them think he has enough personality to be in front of a live audience….uggh disappointing LOL

Dude has a guardian angel (or a relative) at GH he’s being well marketed/promed …he doesn’t suffer for story either.

I think RP is smart to try and get exposure on a show like The View. I’ve seen him a couple of times on Extra and he’s pretty good. Something like that would probably be a much better career path than acting for him to follow.

Robert Seganti

He had nothing to do with this one-off booking-he was told to do it to attempt to draw his fans into watching the sinking ship the View.

Oh, sweet Jesus…I think I shall swoon…LOL.
I must remember to watch. I feel badly for THE VIEW as it has not been up to par with the new crew aboard.
Ryan is such a welcomed guest host…I can’t believe it. Good for you, producers of the show!!
I am truly looking forward to this….with bated breath….LOL.
I hope he will be asked personal questions….I like those. Seriously.

Hi CeeCee 🙂

They’ve had men in the panel before…

A guest host or regular ? yes, as long as he stays with GH !

I am not a fan of the View. I liked when Barbara appeared.. sometimes. Can’t stand Rosie Perez who appears not very smart.. to be kind. But i will watch when Ryan is on. I don’t care if they get a man on there, but don’t want it to be Ryan, I want him to stay on GH.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Hi, Lin.
Rosie Perez is one of the smartest women to grace TV. She is a College graduate and then some.
Yes, I have a hard time understanding her speech sometimes, however that does not , by any means, suggest she is stupid. She is very altruistic with her charities and works hard for the rights of the underdog.
If you would just take a moment and listen with a positive attitude, or read her bio, you would automatically be aware of how well-versed this woman Really is …..socially, politically and worldly

Timmm
Timmm

I agree CeeCee. This Rosie is tight, that other Rosie is a big mouth bully who walked away again. Thank God.

Darren

Rosie Perez needs to be fired from the view. She is a stupid lady and a troll. Very annoying and her wigs looks cheap. lol.

CeeCee
CeeCee

@Darren…I’d love to see what you look like…

Charday

Ugh, why does he want to do that crappy show? Hopefully, he does better than Jason Thompson (where those yentas wouldn’t let him get a word in edgewise!).

Gino
Gino

The view needs to be cancelled, Ryan please talk and cutt off these annoying ladies. They are all has beens. Rosie O Donnell was smart to leave. the view again. The view is no longer watchable, but I will watch Ryan next week.

CeeCee
CeeCee

What is your definition of ‘has been’, Gino? Someone who does not exist any longer? Would you like to be thought of as an ‘has been?’ Say you do not like the panel or disagree with what they impart….but don’t call anyone THAT. They exist.
I don’t care what anyone says. I like what these women represent. I support and applaud their individualism and their Frank approach. Yes, the show has been losing steam. Yes, this musical chairs effect is irritating….I do not like the concept of all the different guest hosts showing up ( except Ryan, of course)…..it gives the show a sense of disconnection. But, for everyone to come down on the show is not fair. If ‘they’ use gimmicks to stay afloat, sobeit. ‘They’ have the right to try to salvage the show, if they are able. More power to ‘them’. I am not afraid to speak my mind, within the limits of decorum…I never have been. I will not speak the words that everyone else speaks just to be part of the in-group. I have my own voice and I will use it. I haven’t been called the Ice Princess throughout my College and graduate years for nothing.
“Walters and company started a great thing with THE VIEW. Everyone else is a copycat”. …words of wisdom from my Gran.

Well….. Ryan is actually a descent interviewer. I’ll watch that ONE episode of the view….

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

I think some of you are misinterpreting. He’s not a new permant host of this hideous show…he’s a one time guest host…to boost ratings. I hate being manipulated, and I hate The View…bit I’ll dvr this one edpisode because I love this guy!

Shay

@rebecca1….I don’t think there has ever been a time I’ve been more in agreement with you!!!! I also loathe this appalling show—I always have and actually refer to it as “The Shrew(s)” because none of the women featured on it has ever spoken to or for me. Quite frankly, I find it to be an embarrassment to the female species, and I also have to add that there would be a far better cross-section of ladies and opinions, not to mention more intelligent conversation and debate, were Mr. Fairman to take the two of us, plus k/Kay, CeeCee and even su and put us together in a studio!!!! Now THAT would be EPIC! ……P.S. Of course, referees—and possibly bouncers—would be required! Perhaps Harry, jimh, Patrick, Timmm and some of our other favorite male regulars here at MFSoaps could provide assistance, although I’m sure YOU would prefer Ryan Paevey!!!! LOL…..

I gotta say…I pretty much quit watching The View after Joy Behar left. B-u-t…since that VERY RUGGEDLY DREAMY Ryan Paevey will be Co-Hosting The View this upcoming Tuesday (February 17th), I will definitely be watching!!!!! RYAN TRULY ROCKS!!!!!

Yes jaybird Ryan rocks and he is one hot hot dude. Very sexy eye candy, I am drooling LOL. My boyfriend will kill me. lmao. I am a bad bad boy.

Timmm

So guys, do we agree, Ryan is smoking hot but is not a good actor?

Aria

Mario cantone is sort of a semi regular and he’s annoying but in my opinion a men would ruin it and Mario is prove of that. I find it interesting though that the view under the entertainment umbrella barely ever invited anyone from soaps or gh specifically yet under the news umbrella they have Ryan coming in to co host do thumbs up to that…

Jennifer

Mario Cantone is a cutie, not annoying at all. Aria take your meds and please have a nice day.

CeeCee

I love Mario. He has this wry, sardonic sense of humor (reminds me a little of harry) , where I’m somewhat bewildered…is he serious? I can’t tell sometimes. LOL.

Anita

I will be taping it to watch. Depending on how good it is I may want to watch it more than once. I like when they shake things up. Ryan is an awesome shake up. Looking forward to seeing him natural and talking with others instead of just acting. Besides the eye candy he has an excellent voice.

Timmm
Timmm

They are shaking things up because they are desperate. The show is tanking. Ryan will try and sway females to watch GH. Thats it. Excellent voice? He sounds like he has marbles in his mouth when he speaks! Just saying.

Rebecca1

Lol, Timmmm. You REALLY don’t like Ryan’s acting. I think he’s adorable both in looks and execution. He doesn’t seem like he IS acting…there’s almost a naivete or in-the- moment subtle quality that makes him more real to me. He doesn’t overact, nor does he make exaggerated expressions or reactions. Just comes off as a good guy, earnest, moral and an everyday guy despite his exquisite looks. Yes, he spoke with very stilted, clipped sentences when he first appeared…I think he’s warmed up and relaxed which makes for a more realistic delivery. Now leave him alone! 😉

Timmm
Timmm

I’m sure Ryan is a good guy. I guess my biggest problem is if he is so green, why cast him in THIS role who has so many scenes with key characters of which most our veterans of the show?

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

I don’t think he’s been thrown in with the vets. Most of his scenes are with Dante and Maxi…less so with Dr. O and Anna. Either way , he never ruins a scene for me…I like his character and him in the role. I think the major distraction is his stunning looks….you just can’t help but be aware of them!

Anita
Anita

GH is not tanking! There are plenty of people out there that have been watching since they were kids just like me! Females are already watching because of him. Of course it would not hurt to have some more people watching. Variety is what keeps people watching shows so when the View has men on that is the show shaking things up and that is a good thing. Bottom line is that the network is keeping itself alive!

I think he meant The View is tanking.

Natasha Henstridge To Play Opposite GH’s Departing Vinessa Antoine in DIGGSTOWN

More casting news from the upcoming Canadian legal drama series, Diggstown which will star General Hospital’s Vinessa Antoine (Jordan) in the central role of Marcie Diggs.

As fans know, Antoine will be exiting GH in the role of Jordan as she begins filming the CBC series.

However, Antoine is getting a co-star on her new show, in none other than Natasha Henstridge.  The actress has previously appeared in CW’s Beauty and the Beast and Secret Circle.

 

According to Deadline, in Diggstown, Natasha will play Colleen MacDonald, a single, no-nonsense, openly gay director of legal aid now headquartered in Halifax after being blacklisted by the legal community in Toronto. She hopes to one day work her way back home.

As for the premise of the new series, Diggstown is set in the gritty arena of legal aid.  It centers on Marcie Diggs (Antoine), a star lawyer who reconsiders her priorities after her beloved aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution. Landing at a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.  The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice as they work directly in the community to find justice for their diverse clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty and gender bias.”

Antoine is the first black actress to be cast as a dramatic series lead on iconic Canadian Broadcasting Company, CBC.

So, what do you think of the premise of Diggstown?  Sounds intriguing to us! Comment below.

GH’s Kathleen Gati and Michelle Stafford Deliver The Power Performance of The Week!

A grieving mother and sister found themselves stuck in a revenge plot gone haywire, that provided the backdrop in which two accomplished actresses; Kathleen Gati (Liesl) and Michelle Stafford (Nina) were able to shine on episodes of General Hospital.

Although Peter’s kidnapping went on far too long, and fans on social media have their own viewpoints as to what they think of Mr. August aka Henrik Faison (Wes Ramsey), the final week of taking Peter hostage to torment him as payback for his part in Nathan’s death; gave Gati and Stafford scenes from the comedic, to the emotional, to the cray-cray, and more..

Courtesy/ABC

On Thursday’s episode, Nina is trying to talk down Liesl from torching the place, but Liesl is becoming more unhinged and more grief-stricken.  She says to Nina, “I lost my son.  I gave Nathan up to protect him.  I spent my life not even daring to gaze in his direction for fear that Cesar would take him.  I never wanted my son to be like him, and now my beautiful boy is buried in the ground, while the other son is still breathing!  So, I must finish this my way, Nina  …  with or without you!”

Pleading, an emotional Nina responds: “Aunt Liesl, you are not the only one who lost time with Nathan.  I did, too.  I missed him growing up.  I missed his childhood, and seeing the incredible man he turned into.  I feel his absence and I feel the loss every second of every day.  I hate Faison, and I will for the rest of my life, and I hate Anna (Finola Hughes) just like you did, but that does not justify what I have done… being an accomplice in this crazy revenge.  None of that is going to bring my brother back.”   Nina goes on to say:  “I knew J would not want his mother grieving alone. This isn’t grief anymore … this is madness.”

Obrecht with rage and sadness in her eyes says, “The brightest souls like my Nathan are extinguished.”  And from there, as viewers know by now, Liesl sets the fire, which sets the stage for Nina’s rescue, and the Friday cliffhanger of Finn (Michael Easton) having to decide whether to go in the burning building and get Peter out, or not.

Courtesy/ABC

Later on the pier, a stoic, but grief-stricken Liesl is arrested.  She spitefully tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan (Vinessa Antoine), “Tell Anna something for me: ‘Now we are even!”‘

Earlier in the week, we saw how Kathleen Gati navigated the comedic yet dramatic moments as she had to knock Franco (Roger Howarth) out, while she was trying to get back to Spoon Island, as he realized Obrecht was the guilty party who took Peter.

Gati has made Obrecht, this one-of-a-kind character, come to life, no matter what the circumstances the writers put her in.  And as for Michelle Stafford, when Nina spoke of her brother and the loss she continues to feel, it was one of the most on-the-money moments for anyone who has lost a sibling that they looked to.

So, even through some of the absurdity of the circumstances, and as they were portraying two women trying to figure their way out of the mess they created,  Gati and Stafford never faltered as they committed to the material, and delivered this week’s Power Performance of the Week.

Share your thoughts on the performances of Kathleen and Michelle and what stood out to you via the comment section below.
