Genie Francis Tweets Heartfelt Message: "I Would Like To Thank All My Wonderful Fans For Their Support."

Courtesy/ABC

\Courtesy/ABCAfter the last 36 hours of outpouring on social media by daytime soap fans and more, soap icon Genie Francis has finally spoken in a brief tweet to all who have rallied around her since the news broke that her contract was not renewed by General Hospital.

The actress who has played Laura on and off since 1977, tweeted: “I would like to thank all my wonderful fans for their support. It has made me feel so much better. ”

Nicolas Bechtel who plays Genie’s on-screen grandson, Spencer Cassadine, tweeted back to her: “Grandmother, you’re all that and a bag of chips. There’s nobody better … #GH”

Meanwhile Robin Strasser  (Ex-Dorian, OLTL) tweeted: “Bad Decision in High Places! #GenieFrancis is a fixture in our hearts-We of a certain age, remember exactly where we were for #LukeAndLaura‘s marriage:) (#OLTL actors stood watching in the make-up room…Cheering for the “I DO”s:)”   To which Genie replied via a tweet: “Also, a very heartfelt thank you to Robin Strasser. I love actresses who support actresses.”

So, what do you think of Genie’s tweets? Are you happy to hear from her via social media? Comment below.

“…I love actresses who support actresses.” ”

OF COURSE – this reeks of women in this business being given the shaft for so many other reasons… outside of the size of a mans piece

IN YOUR FACE : Frank Valentini, Maurice Benard, Steve Burton

the writing is on the wall.

if this is all @GH / TPTB / want for this show

cest la vie

It’s ridiculous to blame Maurice and Steve for this. Frank’s fucked up priorities were fully on display last Wednesday, when an entire episode was devoted to a dragonshit character with ZERO relevance to the history of General Hospital.

And that character – as far as I know – doesn’t have a penis. So it’s not a gender thing, it’s an agenda thing. And the Valentini agenda, from day one in February 2012 has been obvious to anybody who cared to pay attention…..

Destroy everything good about classic General Hospital and replace it with Zombie OLTL.

Thank you, Satan!….(Wow, that sounds strange…..LOL) Even though I would never express the sentiment as starkly as you have, I totally agree that this is not a gender thing. For many of us who have followed Genie’s “Laura” during her various GH tenures and witnessed the repeated struggles with GH to get the love and respect they both deserve, we recognize this travesty for the highly-personal issue that it truly is….she’s experienced this all-too-familiar unfair treatment for decades on end from the ungrateful soap and network to whom she dedicated the best years of her career—-this is simply the latest… Read more »

Hi… i’m coming from the point of pay disparity…. it’s gnawing at me the post that was said about Sarah Browne.. ex Carly who catapulted GH.. in her own right… WON THREE EMMIES.. and was .. per post was still payed that much less than her male counterparts

I will STAND up and HOLD ON : Steve Burton and Maurice Benard ARE NOT GOOD actors

Frank probably never anticipated this PR nightmare. Very likely he’ll have to eat crow and reinstate her contract or have his canceled by ABC.

GH fans should be grateful for Frank taking over when he did in 2012. However, it’s time to move on.

Totally, agree, Mo. Love Frank, but hate this decision. I watched GH yesterday for the first time since this news broke (I record it) and was sickened, I was so angry. It will be a long, long while before I can watch and not feel anything but anger for what TPTB did to Genie, and in turn, the viewers.

Guest

What kills me is that he refused to speak to her about it. What boss does that? What type of corporation allows someone in management to get away with that? Becky Herbst also said that she had no opportunity to talk to Frank after she learned he wanted to fire her. And yet the man touts the fact that he rehired ME in the grocery store, and that he hired Laura Wright’s boyfriend after running into them in a parking lot! The man seems to make erratic decisions and then acts completely unprofessionally to boot. He needs to go.

Happy to hear from her but the news sucks!!! ABC is putting the final nail in the coffin of its soaps. We all know OLTL was the higher rated soap but ABC chose to keep the horrible GH because of brand recognition. The only thing that keeps me watching in Maura West, the Bervelee McKinsey of out modern soaps.I will not watch the Carly & Sonny show anymore.

Genie you’re a better person than me, right now I would be so mad. How could they do that to you or anyone else. I’ve been watching GH since it started some of the actors/actresses I didn’t much like but you are different. You bring so much passion to the show you are a joy to watch. I really wanted to see you and Ned debate for mayor it is a better story line then Michael and Nell.
Wishing you the best in what ever you decide to do. Your fans are behind you 100%.

Genie, I have signed every petition, written on every FB page, asked everyone in charge to change their mind and stop this ridiculous decision. You are a treasure at GH. You had a great storyline, a great new husband, a new name (enough with the Spencer anchor) and I was so looking forward to you fighting with Ned politically and being the new mayor. You were going to rise to greatness, character-wise. And then… nothing? Frank and the PTB need to recind this disgrace of a decision and put you back on top where you belong.

They won’t let me put in the links.

One is on SoapHub and is titled “Petition to bring Genie Francis Back” (can be googled)

I’m very angry. She was onto a roll as Mayor. COME ON! Don’t want to hear that her character was going no where. Or, Her character has come to an end . Having her pop in once in a while.

It’s certainly nice to hear from Genie, but we can’t let it stop there! The ABC Daytime brass and Frank Valentini need to hear our constant support for Genie and our outrage on a very bad decision until that decision is reversed. It happened for Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth) several years ago, and it also happened for Robin Mattson when she played Janet on AMC. Keep tweeting and e-mailing your outrage, make phone calls, whatever it takes! Genie Francis as Laura is the heart and soul of GH, and I thought they finally figured that out when Genie was given a… Read more »

This is a huge mistake. They just started a story line with Laura running for mayor. I thought that was so perfect! Big umbrella story with history and consequences. This is a big fail for GH. Boo. Not sure that I will keep watching. DOOL is on fire. Just saying.

I sure hope the brass at ABC think it was worth the bad press and bad will that they have generated with this decision. Most people would have known this was a bad idea (and not done it); what on earth is wrong with TPTB at ABC? Hard to believe people that stupid could be given responsibility for supervising a lemonade stand, much less a long-running program on a big TV network.

Kudos and more kudos to Ms. Strasser for chiming in. She’s tops in my book.

I’m sure she’s heartbroken. She’s given a lot to GH and to be treated like this is not right. I don’t watch GH, but as a viewer of other soaps, I want to see the vets on screen and in story. They can still drive great story and they have a lot of legacy to draw from.

Thank you Genie Francis for sharing your tremendous talent with us fans and for always being a lady of class and dignity. You have always deserved much better from this employer.

Robin Strasser hit the nail on the head. “Bad Decision in High Places!” There have been a lot of those since the mouse company took over the alphabet network.

I was watching a classic episode from the early 80’s when Genie reprised her role as Laura, and “Think of Laura” was being played in the background during the episode. That is when daytime television was enjoyable and “can’t miss.” Valentini is void of tradition and respect. When I look at the roster of actors and the on-slaught of new and recurring characters with no legacy to Port Charles, it’s just so pointless to let Genie go-and in the middle of her storyline.

We will not stop till Genie returns as Laura! What the hell is Frank trying to do to GH. You can push your fans just so far. For those of you who watched GH from the beginning,It was Luke and Laura that brought back GH. To disrespect such a fine actress is a shame. Frank you have so much dead wood on the show right now that no more cares about. Amy, storyline dead and buried, Nelle whom everyone loathes, to name a few.

This is so disgraceful. It’s not like there was no storyline for her. I wanted hundred her to be mayor. I am so heartsick I signed whatever petitions I could. I can’t believe what a stupid decision that GH is making! Not only is she a memory from the past but her current acting is terrific. Besides she is still magnificently beautiful. I really I really don’t know what to say anymore. You need to change your minds and reinstate her. I love you Genie. Just know we all love you.

The best thing about Genie’s acting is that it is based on telling the story and revealing the character. Gen Hosp needed to use Genie much much more not less.

In contrast, the over-use of Maura West seems designed just to showcase how much she can chew the scenery and over-emote in acting out a vile character that shows so little redemption and no development. Ava is not even a good villain anymore.

Sad for Gen Hosp.

I agree, Anne! If you look at most of the females who consistently have front burner status on GH, it’s always all about them with as many ridiculous scene-stealing antics and hideous over-acting efforts that they can muster….the storylines are secondary, they are merely the means to repeatedly forcefeed these same three or four actresses to the audience. None of their obnoxious, trashy characters can compare to Genie’s beloved Laura, who she skillfully portrays with a natural grace and subtlety that speaks for itself, yet we are constantly subjected to these all-too-familiar femmes of a certain age who obviously curry… Read more »

Well, Shay you know I couldn’t agree with you more on this subject. I have friends who are actors and they will tell you that it’s the subtle scenes which are harder to play then the over-the-top dramatic scenes. Mugging it up in a fit of histrionics is way easier than playing something subtle like self-consciousness or that deep inner sadness for which we cannot put into words due to the limitations of language. Genie was always able to play those quiet moments and for that, I think she’s underrated.

Shay, I love Genie, but I have not enjoyed what she has been given with her return at all. I know many love her and Kevin-I did not. They have turned her into mama bear/granny/scenery. Ruth Martin or Kate Martin- loved both, but they don’t put mama bears on contract anymore. Plus, she is too young to be relegated to granny-in my opinion. I was over the top furious when I first heard of this but when Genie thanked actresses who support actresses-she was silent on Rebecca Budig- don’t remember a word from her when it happened to Monica and… Read more »

There are no words as to how disrespectful this has been to Ms. Francis and her fans. She is the heart and soul of GH. The fact that she has been dropped to recurring is most probably because of money and the return of “Jason”. I would have to say it is nice to see him on our screens again but it is a delight everytime “Laura” is given juicy material. I love all the characters on the show and as a former OLTL fan, I am delighted to have ME and RH on my screen. I feel bad that… Read more »

Suoo, I do disagree. Why do the new actors who play Jordan, Kim and that new guy (Laura Wright’s boyfriend, don’t know his name) all have contracts?
To me, being put on re-occurring status is an insult to Genie and her fans alike.

You don’t find it disrespectful that she found out she was fired on the day she shot the scenes about withdrawing from the mayoral race, then asked to see Frank and he said he had no time to meet with her? That says a lot….

And recurring with a guarantee for one episode per month, yeah, that is being fired. By any and every stretch of the imagination.

What a terrible decision!! Laura is the heart of GH. Her character saved the show from cancellation back in 1978. She is the reason GH is still on the air and that Valentini still hsa a job! What was Mr. Valentini thinking when he made that insensitive tweet about Laura’s announcement? Was Maurice Benard’s tweet about air time vs episodes aimed at Genie and her fans. How would he have felt if his contract wasn’t renewed but told he could go on recurring and do about a dozen eps. a year? Good for Robin Strasser for supporting Genie. Too bad… Read more »

Exactly. What kind of lucrative, valuable storyline can one have when airing in maybe a dozen episodes a year? That’s Tuesday and Wednesday filler for when Laura would go visit the insipid Lulu or Elizabeth. She would be another Bobbie or Felicia-with no real character focus or story, just there to prop up her annoying kid!

Genie Francis is as always a class act! Frank Valentini, on the other hand, should never have been allowed to make this decision. The only reason I will continue to watch GH is Maura West and only the episodes that feature her. I don’t care about Sonny, Carly, Cesar Faison, Drew, Sam, Jason or any of that lot. Genie and Maura are the only reasons I watched GH.

I stopped watching this show when it became the Sonny and Carly Show and I stopped again when Ron favored Sonny and Carly over everyone else. If frank is too stupid to see the story potential for Laura as Mayor, then I guess it’s time to stop again. It’s so dumb. Just two weeks ago I was excited by this show for the first time in years… and now this. It really is like they are trying to kill the show. Frank Valentini seems like a miserable person. How do we get him fired?

This is not just any actress nor does she play just any character. BOTH are the CENTER of the GH universe!!! There is no character, male or female that connects to just about everyone on the canvas and commands the respect that Laura does, and the show looks, feels and smells incomplete when she’s not there. Karma can be a real b#tch though, and I trust and hope the universe/God balances the scales anywhere and everywhere that she and others on GH were treated unfairly.

Well Genie Francis fans we have not heard from ABC studios or Frank Valentini to get Genie back to General Hospital full time and show her respect. We need to show them that we are not going to sit back and do nothing. We have to STOP watching GH and bring the ratings down. If ratings do not plumage they will say that Genie was not worth keeping. I for one have not watched GH since I read about Genie being put on recurring.

Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson Share Disagreement with Each Other Over Vaccine Mandate; Will Continue ‘Stone Cold and the Jackal’ Shows In 2022

On the latest episode of their That’s Awesome podcast with Steve and Bradford, released over the Thanksgiving holiday, General Hospital’s Bradford Anderson (Spinelli) and Steve Burton (Ex-Jason Morgan) took some moments to address how Steve’s decision to not adhere to the ABC and GH Covid-19 vaccine mandate (which caused the two-time Daytime Emmy-winning star to be let go from the show) would affect their live shows, podcasts, content moving forward, as well as if it has caused a riff in their friendship.

When addressing listeners of the podcast, Anderson shared the the two would continue on with their projects, but that he disagreed with Burton’s decision to not follow the GH vaccine mandate.

Photo: Podcast One

Bradford expressed: “If you know us, and know are brand, if you will, it’s built on friendships, and like all friends, we have disagreements.  I disagree with Steve’s decision and he knows that. But over are years of friendships, we have had plenty of discussions about this and other topics, and sometimes we agree and sometimes we don’t, but at the end of the day we are still friends.”

Steve added: “We usually don’t get into decisive things on the show.  Look, I have a right to believe in what I want, and you have a right to believe in what you want, and that’s what makes this country great and we have never been about division.”  In addition, Steve was clear that he has not agreed to any interviews at this time on the subject of his exit, and that he is already moving on, sharing: “I am just grateful for my time at General Hospital and the people and the friendships I have made there, especially with the fans.  I have had an incredible life. Listen, I’m OK. I’m at peace. I ‘m moving forward and I am excited about it.  Like I said in my video, when one door closes, multiple doors open, and that’s what happened already.  I’ve gotten a lot of requests for interviews that I don’t want to do, because I don’t want division … that’s the bottom line.”

Look for Anderson and Burton to hit the road in 2022 and continue with their successful Stone Cold and the Jackal live comedy show and appearances.

Steve Burton Confirms His Exit From General Hospital

Steve Burton has spoken and after so much speculation, the two-time Daytime Emmy-winning star has confirmed he is out as General Hospital’s Jason Morgan.

In his post on his Instagram account on Tuesday, Steve shared that he was let go by the ABC daytime drama series due to their vaccine mandate and that even though he applied for medical and religious exemptions those were denied.  Thus, he has to exit his role.

In story, viewers saw on Monday, that Jason is MIA from being under the rubble of the cave that collapsed in Jason’s attempt to apprehend Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his post, Burton shared the following: “I know there has been a lot of rumors and speculations about me and General Hospital and I wanted you to hear it from me, personally. Unfortunately, General Hospital has let me go because of the vaccine mandate. I did apply for my medical and religious exemptions and both of those were denied, which, you know, hurts, but, this is also about personal freedom to me. I don’t think anyone should lose their livelihood over this. But with that being said, you know me. I’ll always be grateful for my time at General Hospital I love it there. I grew up there. I grew up with some of you, so I will always be grateful and I believe when one door closes multiple doors open. That’s always been my perspective, so I am excited to see what the future brings. ”

Steve went on to say, “Maybe one day when these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan. That would be an honor, and if not, I am going to take this amazing experience, move forward and be forever grateful. I have got to say, that I am forever grateful for your love and your support over the years. It means so much to me. Thank you. I don’t know when my last airdate is. It may have aired or it might be tomorrow or the next day. I am not sure. I want you guys to have an awesome Thanksgiving. I know it is hard, maybe, in this type of situation to be thankful or grateful, but we have so many things to be thankful about. Being grateful really is the key. Love you guys.”

The popular actor began his run as GH’s Jason Quartermaine back in 1991. Later in 1995, after a car accident he had a major personality shift and became Jason Morgan. Burton went to Y&R to play Dylan McAvoy for a four-year stint from 2013-2017, before heading back to his home at GH.

A source close to the show told Deadline that Burton’s last tape date was October 27th.

You can watch Steve’s video announcement below on his GH departure.

Ingo Rademacher Wraps His Run as General Hospital’s Jax

During today’s Monday, November 22nd episode of General Hospital, Ingo Rademacher made his exit as Jasper Jacks.

The actor who is out at the ABC daytime drama series for not adhering and disagreeing to the GH and ABC Covid-19 vaccination mandate, saw his character written-out when Jax shared his final scenes with Laura Wright’s Carly and Cynthia Watros’ Nina.

In story, Jax ran into his ex-wife Carly and informed her he was leaving Port Charles immediately to deal with business in Sydney, Australia.  He adds, he is not planning on coming back to town with this sentiment.“I’m kind of on the outs with everyone in Port Charles right now.”

Things are not be left on good terms with the exes, when Carly spouts, “You know, Jax, I thought I made it clear … my life is none of your business.” After some back and forth about their daughter Josslyn (Eden McCoy), Jax says that he is, “Happy to stay out of your life.”

Later, Jax visits Nina at Charlie’s Pub, and warns her to be careful about getting even more deeply involved with Sonny (Maurice Benard), and she deflects that there is anything going on between them, and telling Jax that her and Sonny don’t have a future together.

Rademacher’s Jax is now off the canvas of the series.

So, what did you think of how GH wrote out Jax and Ingo’s exit from the show? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
