The nurses ball should had been a partially live two hour special where viewers could call in and make donations or bid on soap props like Tracys painting which could had raised a lot of money!!!

hey thats a great idea, if they did that, they would prob get real advocates of hiv to appear on the show, like elton john and sharon stone auctioning items from the show.

OR they could have surprised us all and aired the live Emmys in a VERY short form..Announce the winner..say thanks..NEXT! All the space for drama would be a number or two..done and done.

And now a special episode of General Hospital..LIVE..IT’S THE DAYTME EMMYS..I WOULD HAVE BEEN FLOORED AND OVERJOYED.

This was an event that had relevance at one time. It was an event that was brilliantly restored 5 years ago…..but the past three attempts have been carbon copies of the last! Naked men have no place at a fundraiset for AIDS. Shall we feature a bunch of cigarette smokers at a benefit for Lung Cancer????

Dan
Dan

Jenny, I’m not sure how men dancing in their underwear, not naked, let’s not be over dramatic now, have the same correlation to AIDS that cigarette smokers do to lung cancer. Care to explain that one?

Please, Nathan and Griffin dancin’ without their shirts (and pants, for that matter!)! 🙂

This is an AIDS fundraiser. Not a Fun Raiser!!! Learn what this is about!!

Agree! I can’t emagine any hospital fundraiser on the planet with male dancers/strippers. So lie class

No need for the male dancers, really tacky with kids attending the ball. Enough already. Lucy can go too, a new host is needed

Amen to everything you said!…Time to put a fork in that overdone flaky flibbertigibbet act otherwise known as Lucy Coe. It ceased to be funny and charming many moons ago….oh wait, it never was!

Milo and his tacky dancers should have gone out the door with RC, as I assume it was his creation but perhaps it’s more the influence of FV.

Kathleen Gati (Liesl) and Wally Kurth (Ned) are highlights.

Unfortunately, after the ball, Epiphany and Felix will be returned to cold storage until next May.

Will Lucas be taken out of cold storage for this year’s Ball?

From what I’ve seen, Ryan Carnes (Lucas) doesn’t really seem to want to be on the show. If so, it’s a shame as he’s a legacy character who’s easy on the eyes.

Lots of story to tell for Lucas

Shay
Shay

Yes, Yes, YES! to Kathleen Gati! Her Liesl O. could definitely do Bowie justice with her strangely offbeat, yet, absolutely phenomenal, talent!!!!!! As for Epiphany and Felix, the showrunners really missed the boat by “cold storing” both of these characters….they could have been the 21st century versions of GH’s Jessie Brewer and Amy Vining! (And it would have spared us all the insufferable Amy2, who looks to be headed toward “Fatal Attractioning” over Nathan.)

Love both Kathleen and Wally, both are such talented individuals!
Amy2 IS insufferable! She’s Tuesday/Wednesday “filler.”

Steve…. He is actually not a legacy character. Cheryl the hick and Julian Jerome are not legacy characters.

Steve
Steve

Jenny,
Respectfully, would you say adopted characters are not considered legacy? Lucas was adopted and raised from a toddler by Bobbie Spencer and Tony Jones.

Using that theory, Scott Baldwin and Emily Quartermaine would not be considered legacy, yet Hayden Barnes would even though she never had any interaction with Jeff Webber.

Shay
Shay

Not to make too fine a point of it, Steve, but Scotty would be a legacy character because of his late mother, Meg, not stepfather, Lee Baldwin! I looked it up and the character of Meg first appeared—with her little son in tow—on GH in 1965. Cannot get much more historical than that! As for Emily, she was never a real Q, or even related to anybody who came before her on GH, so no, she’s definitely not legacy! Now when it comes to Hayden, well, she’s just a horrible mistake of a GH character, period….and trying to reinvent her at the 11th hour as a descendant of an original cast member (Dr. Steve Hardy, bio-dad of Jeff Webber) doesn’t make her place on the canvas any more palatable, acceptable or authentic!!! In terms of Lucas, that’s more of a judgment call…although he was adopted as a baby, he was fully brought up as a Spencer family member….and identified as part of that clan, so I suppose we can call him legacy, despite the fact that he is actually a Jerome by blood. (Ugh!)

I think the nurses’ ball advocates HIV/AIDS donation in alerting and reminding the viewers of this worthy cause. after all, the NB is not a telethon. Although, the idea of a live NB for the purpose of call in donations is an interesting idea.

When they do have the guys do their dancing storyline have redirected the children to other rooms or sets. Generally, if I remember, Emma or Jake usually does her numbers early and the guys do their later and near the end of the NB.

ONE thing that would get GH major publicity for the NB is if they could snag Richard Simmons to do a cameo. He has been in the news a lot lately and for him to be on the show would hit every news show, website and newspaper.

Wouldn’t that be great, and if they did a spoof of the early ’80’s workout classes with the girls in headbands and leg warmers and the guys in short shorts-so fun!

Shay
Shay

That would be a more tasteful alternative to the same old “Chippendale-esque” segment that has become truly tiresome, dmr! .As far as Richard goes, I can only hope that if he were to make a return GH appearance, then it would be more in-step with his ’80’s persona, when he was sweet, sympathetic and caring as an exercise instructor who just wanted everyone to lead healthier and happier lives. That more recent monstrous creation that was popping out of closets and glitter-bombing people was simply a heinous headcase…and really not one bit funny!

I look forward to seeing what happens this year. I do hope that all the nurses that we’ve hardly seen in recent months like Epiphany and Felix will have more to do than poor Milo did last year. And then there’s Lucas who’s been in surgery so much that we haven’t seen or heard of him in months. The Nurses’ Ball is a time to see the cast show off their talents and I’d rather see more of the “non-contract” players than guest stars. I definitely don’t need some “name” person coming in to entertain. I’m a soap fan who wants his soap stars to shine. There are none brighter for me.

Shay

A spot for Mr. Fairman’s impressive George Michael salute would certainly not go amiss!!!!

I usually skip Nurses Ball — find it very boring and can’t stand Lucy.

Love the Nurses Ball, it’s been a staple of the show for so many years. It’s always fun seeing the cast show off their talents in singing, dancing, and yes even taking off their clothes, lol. You will never get a complaint from me about the gorgeous men of GH doing their yearly, shall we be nice and call it, a dance routine. A shame that some people can’t take the stick out of their back and enjoy the show for the fun and entertainment it is. Maybe Leave it to Beaver reruns would be more appropriate for some.

And most importantly of all, it’s an event to raise awareness for a still very worthy cause, and a reminder that while many advances have been made, we still don’t have a cure for HIV and AIDS. A disease that doesn’t care whether you’re straight or LGBT, white, black, Latino, Asian, or what ethnic background you are, liberal or conservative, rich or poor. That’s what needs to be remembered when it comes to he Nurses Ball.

Amen! Think some have forget or just don’t get the whole point. I find that to be very sad.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GH Preview – Week of June 18, 2018

This week on General Hospital, as Carly (Laura Wright) is being drugged up with anti-psychotic meds at Ferncliff, it’s Jason (Steve Burton) to the rescue.  Carly’s bff finds a way to infiltrate the state mental institution. Meanwhile, Carly had been talking to Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), who says he will help her through her ordeal emotionally.  But is Carly really seeing Kevin, or is it just a figment of her imagination?

Elsewhere, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) seeks out her ex Julian (William deVry) as she tries to come to terms with the root cause of her issues with the men she chooses to be in her life.  Julian, who has gotten closer to Kim (Tamara Braun), now has a chance to try to help Alexis and make up for the ways in which he hurt her.  Could this be the beginning of the patching up of Julexis, or the final straw?

Sonny (Maurice Benard) has just learned that Mike (Max Gail) moved the body buried at Croton. Where did Mike take it?  How will this have future implications?
