It’s a real shame that GH never knew how to use Carlos properly. JVP is a fantastic actor and could hold his own against heavy hitters like Maura West and Will DeVry, and he even showed his softer side in scenes with Sabrina. But they took Carlos down a reprehensible path and made him nothing more than a lackey for the Jeromes. When he killed Duke, there was no turning back for the character.

And let’s not even talk about his twin, Joe, because that story was a colossal failure and a totally missed opportunity for the show. He and Sabrina should have gotten into a relationship and rode off back to Puerto Rico with Gabriel together, to give viewers at least some satisfaction that we missed when Carlos was killed off. To say it was disappointing would be an understatement.

” I ” read threads… and sometimes back off… go in to chill mode

wait things out.. to see fan recall.

you are the reason why : “dynamo”

YES ! this is the best response to Jeffrey Vincent Parise… I loved him from the get go

GOD… out of the box.. I’m glad he has the last laugh… even tho.. should GH , right the wrong (s) with this show.. i’d save a place for Dr. Joe.

he’s a magnetic person. from comedic to dramatic to skank to lovelorn… all the beats hit.

whenever a character melds with the whole cast… just gells and contributes the hell out of material given…. argh! why oh why did Shelley Jean and Frank nosedive on JVP. because their shit stinks too

@Jeanine girard

the bestest


the emmy nod was deserved – hell right ? i’d have voted JVP for a win – well over Scott Clifton, B&B and Steve Burton, Y&R

theirs an eye roll that will go down in infamy. WOW

I said he was good–an actor that had the ability to demonstrate vulnerability; thus the audience could identify with him. Give him some good writing/good roles and he’ll become a “classic” also. LOL

Good for Parise! His talent is far too striking not to be displayed and enjoyed!

Yes, James, I agree. Jeffrey deserves this and so much more. Too bad GH decided to ‘ditch’ him….much prefer him to Sonny, Julian, and so msny others ehom I consider “head-scratchers”.
At least, Carlos never bored me. He was what he was, and never pretended to be anything else….
…….not like some others: Sonny, for instance. I was soooo taken aback today when Sonny dared to approach Monica, offering his help. He? AJ murderer??

Hi Celia:

Thanks for the reply and further comments, Celia! I agree with you; I also always found Carlos enjoyable.

The scene you mentioned of Sonny approaching Monica repulses me. Had I seen it, I might have thrown up or, at the very least, threw something at the TV. (There would have been “throwing” in one sense or another!)

As I might have explained before, I gave up on GH in 2005 (started in 1969) but then came back from time to time, particularly if I heard of Laura’s return, 50th anniversary, etc. So I did get to see much of Parise’s tenure. But in recent years, my GH viewing is extremely rare. And it boils down to one thing: the overuse of Sonny (and, by extension, Carly; and by extension, Jason;…). In keeping abreast of soap news in general, and this website in particular, I know that I am not alone in my disdain for this despicable character. With a mountain of misdeeds, misstatements, missteps, and misogyny, and — oh, by the way — murder, including of AJ (as you mention), there are never just consequences for this character. And still the producers/writers of GH continue their relentless mantra of trying to promote Sonny as hero, as the franchise, and THAT is also despicable!

Sorry to end on such a negative note, but I couldn’t stop myself… 🙂

Hey, James,
No need to apologize, my dear friend. Not to me. I feel the same way. You have not said anything untoward which I have not said, myself, before.
It just befuddles me as to why the Sonny character has to be “consecrated” with such fervor….non-stop. What’s the deal?

Thank you, my Dear Kindred Spirit, Celia! You’re absolutely right!

Awesome! This guy has so much talent and charisma! I’m happy for his new opportunity. Wishing him well, the show casting department found a real treasure in JVP.

what a delight to agree

and it’s a big thing… you know… when the writing just has no flavor.. and i’m sensitive enough to wait things out. or rally onward to TPTB to take something from the fan (s)

when all else fails.. it’s the performers that hold me. all these actors… decade after decade.. they swing through that studio lot. and , in this current time.. their are very few… help me on this… as far as newbies who take hold.

I’ll go right back to the firing of Robert Palmer Watkins, ex-Dillon Quartermaine

they never really wrote a story – for him – per se… but they never really had to.. look how quickly he mixed in… such a natural transition. and yet.. when he interacted with the cast as a whole

I never not once questioned he never was a Quartermaine.. that’s a huge feat.

his romance with Kiki… these two had all the requirements. MISS THESE TWO

so.. tell me to tune in for Sonny / Carly / Jason / Sam / Michael / Nelle / Finn / Franco / Steve Burton. REALLY ?

this is all the show constitutes.. all that the mind has left

this ride is going on 4 decades… i’m still loving this

so I wholly depend on actors to carry.

Jeffrey Vincent Parise … a man of color… flavor… absolutely

*I never not once questioned he never was a Quartermaine

NOT ONCE did I question his being a Quartermaine.

I never understood why Carlos couldn’t be redeemed like Sonny or, to a lesser degree, Julian. JVP is a wonderful actor and we could have used Carlos’ wit and charisma.

Carlos should never be redeemed, then he’d no longer be Carlos.
Julian was redeemed and it destroyed the dominant Julian character..
Sonny was sni-redeemed and he was no longer Sonny he was lackluster fluffy.
Redeeming is not a good thing….
most bad characters are bad and good, highlight one side but no dumbass redeeming, that crap is lethal to most characters..

Carlos, I can let go

it’s that Dr. Joe.. that I didn’t get enough

his swag we only saw glimpse of

all the possibilities with JVP – kaput

At the risk of repeating myself, su (but I must), Julius was not redeemed (could never be); he was “redeemed” instead. You get my drift??
Bless your heart–once again!


They should make him say Sabrina multiple so thanks we can make it a drinking game!

Glad to see him working

Very happy for him but he was a real gem at GH. They wasted his talent. I loved his chops when he had to be in character.

– love – the word use, “charisma”

well – ” I’m just so damned attracted to him”

wink wink

so happy for Jeffrey / he’s a great actor

Great show. Started watching it seasons ago but didn’t keep up…figured I would binge watch all the seasons I missed OnDemand. Unfortunately they’re not running the past seasons for free so it would be hundreds to catch up now. Maybe down the road they’ll free it up. I’m sure JVP will be fantastic! Successful show for him to land!

It is “Supernatural”…maybe he’ll be “Sheriff Carlos…”

I think he’s going to be…. “sheriff ”

which really makes me that much more giddy for… when talent is let go so carelessly

you know.. that right back in your face loss… @Shelley and Frank.

it’s the same , for Michael Muhney… I hope he’s a regular cast member on “the Good Doctor” thank you ABC.. the camera SO LOVES HiM… so dont’all his fans

WGA and AMPTP Reach Tentative Deal to End Writers Strike

Looks like we are close, very close, to the writing teams at your favorite soap operas returning to their jobs with news on Sunday that finally the WGA and AMPTP have reached a tentative deal. What remains is the fine print, and having the WGA vote to ratify their contracts.

This is welcome news to the television, streaming and motion picture industry that after five months of a strike has put the 2023-2024 TV season in deep water.

In a statement, the Writers Guild shared, “We have reached a tentative agreement on a new 2023 MBA (Minimum Basic Agreement), which is to say an agreement in principle on all deal points, subject to drafting final contract language. We can say, with great pride, that this deal is exceptional — with meaningful gains and protections for writers in every sector of the membership.”

As the deal goes through its final stages, the writers are still technically on strike, but picketing outside studios and shows has now been suspended.

Among the writers’ demands that they fought for are: higher residuals from streaming shows, minimum staff sizes to prevent the use of “mini rooms” and protections from the use of AI.  The hope within the entertainment industry is that the new deal for the WGA will move along a new contract for SAG-AFTRA (actors) with the AMPTP.  As of Monday, SAG-AFTRA is still on strike.

As for your favorite soap operas, during the strikes, the shows were written by non-union writers or “fi-core” writers who gave up their union benefits in order to continue working.

The next steps in process will see the WGA negotiating committee vote on “whether to recommend the agreement and send it on to the WGAW Board and WGAE Council for approval,” tentatively scheduled for Tuesday.  Another vote by the board and council could lift the strike “restraining order”and allow scribes to “return to work during the ratification vote”.

So, are you happy to know that the writing teams from your favorite soaps are about to return to work and helm the scripts and the vision of the shows? Comment below.

General Hospital Alum Richard Simmons ‘Not Interested’ In Biopic with Pauly Shore Portraying Him

Former General Hospital guest star and fitness guru, the reclusive Richard Simmons, has come forward and addressed actor and comedian, Pauly Shore’s wish to play the 70’s and 80’s pop culture icon in a biopic about his life.

Shore previously took to social media and on X shared a side-by-side of him and Simmons. Accompanying the post, Pauly expressed: I’ve noticed the reactions to me playing #RichardSimmons in a biopic. I heard he’s living in Big Bear. We’ve been playing phone tag (yes, he has a phone). I’m trying to make it happen, you guys. In the meantime, hit up all the big producers. I’ll see you at @TheAcademy 2025!”

However, TMZ’s sources are reporting on Saturday that Simmons is not in favor of Shore playing him in a film or anyone else, or any biopic on his life.

The outlet shared that Richard’s reaction was that he was aware of the effort behind a biopic, mostly spear-headed by Pauly. but that he just doesn’t want to be involved. Simmons also added that he likes Pauly a lot, but he’s not biting, despite the public’s urging on social media about the idea of a movie on his life.

Born Milton Teagle “Richard” Simmons, he became part of the public conscious back in the 70’s and 80’s with exercise studios and the ability to help his clients lose weight; many of them were celebrities. Simmons himself, admitted to at one time to being overweight, and getting into fitness helped him maintain a healthy living style and he wanted to help others.

Later, he began a four-year recurring run on General Hospital playing himself from 1979-1983.  Simmons returned to the show in 2013 for the Nurses’ Ball to taunt Lucy (Lynn Herring). He also was host of the Emmy-award winning, The Richard Simmons Show, which focused on personal health, fitness, exercise, and healthy cooking.  Over the last several years, Simmons has withdrawn from public life.

What would you think of a Richard Simmons biopic and if it included some moments in front of the camera and behind the scenes of what went down when he appeared on GH? Do you think it will ever happen given Simmons current position on the matter? Let us know in the comment section.

General Hospital’s John J. York Reveals Potential Transplant Donor: “I Believe They Found a Match”

Promising news for General Hospital’s John J. York (Mac Scorpio). The actor who went public with his health battle shared Friday on Good Morning America that a life-saving blood stem cell transplant donor may have been located.

An emotional York told GMA, “I believe they found a match, perfect match, which will make me cry.  So we’re going to start our testing and do all that kind of stuff coming up here in about a week, and then I believe the transplant will happen, fingers crossed, in November.”

Through his association with the Be The Match organization, York located the now potential donor to help in his fight against myelodysplastic syndrome and multiple smoldering myeloma, two blood and bone marrow disorders. “

York went on to explain the difficulties he faced in trying to find a match: “Many of my family members were tested and most of them were 6 out of 12; apparently there’s markers that have to be reached. So they were on standby.”

When asked just what the GH fan favorite would want to say if given the opportunity to speak to the donor that appears to be a match, in tears, John expressed: “Thank you for saving my life. For letting me spend more time with my wife and my daughter and my son-in-law and my grandchildren and seeing this beautiful blue sky.”

John has played Mac Scorpio for 32 years and until recently had kept his battle with these two blood cancers private, but came forward to clarify why he is taking time away from GH, and how he is been trying to find a life-saving donor match.

Watch York’s segment from GMA below.

Now, share your thoughts and well-wishes as John awaits the test results from his potential donor, to hopefully undergo this life-saving transplant in November via the comment section.
