The whirlwind of events at the 2019 edition of the General Hospital Fan Club Weekend has come and gone, but with lasting memories for fans who traveled across the country and more to see their favorites from Port Charles up close and personal, through the main cast event, autograph signings, and more intimate events with popular cast members and duos.

Held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Glendale, California, and put together by fan club president, Debbie Morris and her team, as well as events surrounding the weekend from: Claire Mullan, Jim Warren, Debby O’Connor, and more, fans were kept busy bouncing from gathering to gathering.

Things got started last Thursday with the GH kick-off event attended by the likes of John J. York and Jon Lindstrom, as well as an event with Kin Shriner. That was followed by Friday with Mimosa’s with Lisa LoCicero, and a special event that reunited former on-screen loves, Tony Jones and Bobbie Spencer, played by Brad Maule and Jackie Zeman. The evening featured annual events from: Donnell Turner, Nancy Lee Grahn, and a Karoke event which featured some of the younger set in Port Charles.

When Saturday came, many of the stars came out in support of the fan club including: Rebecca Herbst, who made a very special appearance.  That was in addition to notables: Roger Howarth. Michael Easton, Josh Swickard, Maurice Benard, Max Gail, Bradford Anderson, Steve Burton, Carolyn Hennesy, William Lipton, Tristan Rogers, Kristina Wagner,Lisa LoCicero, Coby Ryan McLaughlin, William deVry, Tamara Braun, and others.  Prior to the autographs, Steve Burton hosted some short panels with groups from the cast chatting it up in front of the audience.  After a group photo, each actor took off to their respective autograph tables to meet the fans and sign their “John Hancock” and pose for some photos.

Following the main event, Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson held a special show which featured a version of their comedy show, ‘Stone Cold and the Jackal”. Needless to say any fan of GH, would appreciate the humor and stories within their show.  If that wasn’t enough, another great time was had by all at the annual event with best buds, Michael Easton and Roger Howarth.  After fielding questions from the audience and signing autographs, they were joined by a surprise special guest, Rebecca Budig!

Sunday started with a morning with Mutter, as Kathleen Gati hosted her event.  Then, real-life lovebirds Laura Wright and Wes Ramsey held a morning champagne get-together and talked about their roles on GH, their life together and more.  Maurice Benard also held his own event; which was loved by all who attended.  Later, Emme Rylan and Kirsten Storms held an intimate gathering in a hotel suite for their fans.

Later in the day, Tamara Braun dished about the latest on Dr. Kim Nero and fielded questions from those in attendance at her event.  And Sunday concluded with Wally Kurth hosting Bingo night with the Quartermaines with very special guests: Adrianne Leon and Lesli Kay, plus Leslie Charleson!   The five-day event-o-rama ended this Monday with a Brucas (Parry Shen and Ryan Carnes)’ get-together, and then the final even which featured Marc Anthony Samuel.

Check out some of the images with the cast from our GHFCW 2019 gallery below. and then let us know, who you were glad to see was there, and what was your favorite part of the weekend (if you were in Los Angeles for the fan gathering) via the comment section.

I flew in Friday to rest up for three Saturday events – the main cast event and two back to back events with Roger and Michael. It was fun that Rebecca surprised us with an appearance at the first R&M event, and briefly at the start of the second event, but I caught sight of a second surprise at their first event…. “Isn’t that Michael Fairman?” When you came back in the room I got my chance to ask for a photo with you! Saturdays events were so much fun. The panels were great fun and then what a surprise… Read more »

WATCH: Nancy Lee Grahn, Jane Elliot & Kim Zimmer in ‘Covid Support Group’ Episode Two

Over the weekend, General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) along with her creative partner. comedian, Kaore Bonell released episode two of the hilarious send-up ‘Covid Support Group” which features Grahn, and two other powerhouses known for their performances on daytime drama: Jane Elliot (Tracy, General Hospital) and Kim Zimmer (Ex-Reva, Guiding Light).

In episode two, Bonell and the three women are joined by a very special guest; when none other than former Los Angeles District Attorney, who tried the OJ Simpson Murder Trial, Marcia Clark, shows up!  We won’t tell you what happens, you’ll have to check it out to see.

Watching Zimmer as a boozy version of herself, Grahn with her brilliant comedic timing, and Elliot who is also perfection in this, is just too fun that every soap fan will get a kick-of, and even if you don’t watch daytime, think about how everyone is going stir-crazy during the coronavirus pandemic, and amp it up a bit and you have the genesis of this oh-so-timely series.

Best line of episode 2 was from Grahn:  During confessions during Covid, she says to the support group, “I bitch-slapped a guy who was hoarding toilet paper at CVS, does that count? Or does Erika Slezak get my Emmy for that, too?”

Watch Covid Support Group 2 below, and then let us know what you thought of it via the comment section below!

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.
