I can’t wait. This is a favorite time of year for me on GH. I remember the ball in 2001 when tee shirts and little pins could be ordered. I got 2 sets because my partner I had at the time had wanted one. He loved the Nurses’ Ball too.

I hope its not the same old male striptease and Lucy loosing her clothes whatever…put on a good variety show…dont know how writers…check out youtube…soaps here and abroad done variety moments in their shows that are good and entertaining…Days done them-wand were the best…Coronation Street old eps done them….i will wait and judge when i watch Monday!!!…please include Dr.O doing Greta Garbo…Corries Rita done in back in the 70s-she was good!!!…still it should had been a live show with fans calling in making donations and bidding on show props like Tracy’s portraits and that daggar Helena gave Alexis ect.,…show might had raise some money for a worthy cause!!!

Dr. O. and Helena should do a duet….Constance Towers is a trained opera singer and we already know that Kathleen Gati can deliver a blockbuster performance regardless of musical genre!

The past 3-4 years the Nurses Balls were disappointing.
They were were cute but nothing special..

The past 4 Nurses Balls reminded me of School Plays, a High School production of song and dance.

The writers, producer, directors really need to step up their productions, up into the 21st century entertainment.

The balls have been Cutesy and it’s always fun to see the actors showing off their talents, but whoa the balls are on the lame side of entertainment.
Perhaps this ball will be better ..Looking forward to the ball..

0ooooh oh !!

Jake will bring out the Death Canister out at the
nurses Ball as a magic trick…

Y&R..

Nell is going to need a kidney=== most likely from Michael..

It is all to obvious, sigh ..

Need new writers for both Y&R and GH…

Celia

Jske will make Helena appear from his magic box, with a snake’s ‘tail’ swinging under her ballgown. Surprise!!

hey there you are! hi Celia!

That would be entertaining and fun- a real laugh ..
I have not had a laugh not even a chuckle in years while watching GH (( that in itself is sad 🙁

good idea! LOL

Celia

How right you are, su!! You are usually right on the mark.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Helen will go all Hocus Pocus and the witch will sing,’I put a spell on you…and now you are mine!’…She will hypnotize the crowd who will try to kill each other-lol

Helena-sigh!

Just not interested in this. Lucy should not be involved and get rid of the male dancers, very tacky. Years ago it was great, not so much anymore

Lucy Coe is to the nurse’s ball what Steve Hardy was to General Hospital. As the founder of the ball, she’s earned the right to be there until her dying breath.

Shay
Shay

“Earned the right?” How? By stripping down to her undies every time, which gets more and more ludicrous with the passing years? Um, no thanks! I would much rather see the funds allocated for Lucy’s tired act to be directed to legacy character appearances by those who actually have performing talent like Rick Springfield…as himself, Noah or Eli Love!…or Jack Wagner, who despite that former Frisco fiasco on the 50th anniversary event, really should come back to Port Charles for at least a quick drop-in to visit Maxie and maybe even meet his granddaughter, Georgie!

Celia
Celia

Love, love, love Lucy!!

Steve…I’m with you on Lucy. And Robin showing up. Lucy might not be to everyones taste, or all of the acts. But if it wasn’t for her energy, and Sabrina, the Nurses Ball wouldn’t have been resurrected. Must admit I liked it better when “talent” was more homegrown, or at least had a history with GH, instead of importing others like Mario Lopez (nothing against him personally). But it is shaping up that Jake and his magic act may provide some “drama” to the Ball this year.

I love the Nurse’s Ball. I remember it way back in the day, during its heyday, when there was no expense spared (in the ’90’s). I just hope this year’s is not focused on that stupid scarecrow and chimera storyline that Monotone Sam, and Emotionless Jason, Elizabeth, Franco, and Jake are involved in. It’s SO boring and stupid. Let the kid do his magic tricks and move on to the next act!

rebecca1
rebecca1

Anna, Alex, Robert, Helena, Valentin are involved in the chimera story, as well. I can’t yet see how they all connect to it but it’s holding my interest…I guess we all assume Jake’s magic tricks will result in something strange or catastrophic. I’m into it! LOL…as far as GH “out-there” stories go. But you’re not the only one not into it. With all these stories, there doesn’t seem to be one consensus. Can’t be too easy for the writers to keep coming up with daily new happenings that work for all the people all the time. I’m actually curious to find out what it’s all about. Will it pay off? Fifty-fifty shot. I do think thought that it’s a perfect spot for Jake to do his magic. Now if he could make AJ appear I’d be happy!

dmr
dmr

I love AJ, too-Sean Kanan, not that short, wimpy, Billy Warlock-UGH! Seriously, I didn’t mind Sonny putting him on a meat hook, lol. I love Sean Kanan, though, and TPTB seriously screwed up his return.

Shay
Shay

@dmr…I hear you on AJ…and Sean Kanan, too!…But seriously, the character in the form of this particular actor will probably never again appear on GH…or at least as long as the present regime is in charge. You see, not only did AJ leave Port Charles on an extremely sour note, but our Sean committed the cardinal sin of repeatedly appearing on the Fox News network to intelligently discuss politics and eventually endorse a certain presidential candidate, who um, how shall I put this???? Well, HE won! Need I say more? (Check it out on YouTube if you don’t believe me!) I’m also surmising that at least a few other favorite ex-leading legacy males won’t be making any future guest shots on GH for their similar political proclivities, and no, I shall not name names.

What I always amusing (in a ridiculous sort of way) is that there are typically no more than about 20 people in the audience, sitting at no more than 6 tables. And it’s supposed to be this massive fundraiser…

As others have noted, yes, the male striptease is pretty stale and lame.

On a related note, as much as I love Lucy — hmmm, wouldn’t make a great name for a sitcom — is she still going to end up in her underwear in her 70s?

I am not a fan of lip synching…

Steve
Steve

Too bad they couldn’t think of a creative way to fill the tables? A contest for viewers, maybe?

The striptease is stale. As long as Lynn Herring looks as great as she does, keep it up. Eventually, TPTB will bring on Serena, who can take over for her mother.

It didn’t used to be like that Jamesj75. Budget cuts…sigh. Used to be a full house with most of our characters. A few years ago it was just a few tables with fillers and extras…barely a recognizable face! Last year at least they paid to have the actual cast at the tables! Let’s see who they come up with this year. Hoping it’s not Richard Simmons….

“someone” POSTED ???? last year the year before… the BEST idea ; yet

@GH fill that ballroom with FANS… loud festive hollah all the time partay

hi Jamesj75 ..

Yes! About the ”striptease”
If they are going to do that then they should do it right or not at all.
Never do anything halfway–
They either strip or not, if not its just silly nonesense and not a stripease..

You are right– I’ve said it too.. the Ball is rather ”lame” a high school stage show performance. LOL

but– still fun to see the actors strutting their talents. I like that.
hey! this year the ball might be spectacular ! ((bawaahaa)
it’s nonetheless something different to see and that is good thing!

— Celia has a great plan for Helena, above… 🙂 if only huh,,

Celia

Hi, James,
I have one wish……to have Lucy Coe’ s body when I’ m seventy. LOL.
And, for my husband to have Sonny’s stamina. I want my husband to take what Sonny’s taking.
WOW…one after the other ‘interludes’! DOUBLE LOL.
Later, my friend.

I am so looking forward to the Nurses Ball,at the same time worried the show will be again interupted with Trumps latest charade. Hope somehow ABC will be able to show the full shows later at night because somehow I have this feeling the show will be interrupted next week with whatever Trump. I always look forward to the Nures’s Ball every year!

It’s time to move on from Magic Milo or seriously change that routine.
It’s the same thing, just different color …..pants.

Celia

Magic Milo? The Incredible Hulk? All he needs is green paint. Ugh!!
I like Shay’s idea. Real-honest-to-goodness entertainment by real entertainers, with a splash of witchcraft, as su0000 suggests. Yeah!!

Shay

Hey, CeeCeeGirl…I think both Helena and Dr. O. could provide all the “magic” and “witchcraft” necessary! They would make for a dynamic—and diabolical—duo!

@Shay.
Hiyah, Shaybelle.
Wouldn’t a duet with Liesl and Helena be perfectly imperfect ( pardon the oxymoron)?????
Oh, yeah…bats, gargoyles and inverted crosses floating around their heads. LOL.
Sorry, for not answering sooner, Shay…..for some reason I am not receiving ‘soap’ emails in my inbox. So, it’s hit or miss. I apologize in advance if I miss some of your replies, amica cara.

Shay
Shay

Not at all, CeeCeeGirl! As if we don’t already miss each other enough when our posts are “disappeared!” LOL….But, yes, an Helena and Liesl a deux performance would be a match made in h#!!…..utterly devilish, not to mention a real meeting of the minds….and immense innate talent, to boot!

I guess I was the only one disappointed that the Magic Milo Act not performed in 2017. Was the only act I was really looking forward to! Kudos to the Valentin, though, at least I got solace in that act.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Valentin’s World Crumbles; Anna & Finn Put On The Brakes

Yesterday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital featured emotional performances by James Patrick Stuart (Valentin), Finola Hughes (Anna) and Michael Easton (Finn) as it looks like a significant shift may be coming for their characters on the Port Charles canvas, or is it?

Valentin has overheard Nina (Cynthia Watros) telling Ava (Maura West) that she kissed Jax (Ingo Rademacher), which further sends him into a tailspin.  He is still reeling from the fact that the DNA results, that he had run, proved that he is not a Cassadine, as Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) had claimed and revealed.

When Valentin enters Ava’s art gallery, he gets a moment alone with Nina where he tells her he doesn’t know who he is anymore.  Nina tells him he is free now to start over and concentrate on his daughter, Scarlett, but that she will no longer be a part of his life.

You can tell Nina still has feelings for Valentin and cares about him, but is it more? Or, is she now going to move on with Jax? Well, after a pep talk, of sorts, from Ava, looks like she may just go after Jax and see where things may lead with him.

Later, Valentin is drinking and gets his gun and is ready to kill Jax, or so it seems.  He heads out to go confront Jax in his office.  Next, we see Valentin shoot Jax with Josslyn (Eden McCoy) and Dustin (Mark Lawson) looking on.  However, we soon learn that this scenario was all in Valentin’s mind, as we come back to present time and Jax, Dustin, and Josslyn are all talking and wondering what Valentin wants.  He covers and tells Jax he just came to tell him he wasn’t a Cassadine.  Still later, Lulu is filled in about Valentin.

Y&R's Sharon Case On Special Episode Airing Friday: "I Can't Wait For People To See It"

Meanwhile, Brad (Parry Shen) meets up with Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and tells her that he and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) are moving away from Port Charles.  He admits to her that he told Lucas before the accident, about baby Wiley being Michael and Nelle’s bio-son.  She is pissed.  Nelle realizes he wants to move Lucas and Wiley away to keep from triggering Lucas’ memory of the car crash.  Later, that prompts Nelle to leave Valentin a message that she is ready to sell her ELQ shares to him as she needs to leave town ASAP.

However, when Nelle places her call, Vakentin does not pick up; instead he is on the floor drunk, and opens a box with the Cassadine ring in it, and lo and behold, we see a woman appear, who by all accounts will be Helena (Constance Towers) since we know Towers is making a visit during February sweeps.  Will Valentin be talking to a dead Helena about the lies perpetrated on him … or is something else going on? Stay tuned for today’s episode.

Courtesy/ABC

Elsewhere, Anna is angry that Finn betrayed her with confirming information to Jason (Steve Burton) and his stance on her son Peter’s dirty deeds.. Finn says she’s just so blind to the truth about Peter and he is a dangerous man; after all, Peter kept Jason locked up for years.  Anna says Jason will now retaliate and try to kill Peter.  She is overcome with terror and upset that no one will give Peter the benefit of a doubt.

It’s clear she wants a second chance at being Peter’s mother and can’t see past that. With that, the duo is at a crossroads. Finn goes to get his daughter, Violet and packs a bag and moves of their place and heads to the Metro Court for the night.  He tells Anna he has to protect his daughter.  Of course, when they get to the Metro Court, they run into Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms).  Finn is not happy.   Will Anna and Finn reconcile? Will Peter finally, finally get his comeuppance?

GH’s William deVry Teases That Julian Will Hit The Sheets Twice: But With Whom?

Looks like things are going to get steamy for General Hospital’s Julian Jerome.   His portrayer, William deVry took to Instagram and revealed that two love scenes are on the way

But deVry, who always is always in top physical shape, shared a shirtless pic of himself with the tease noting: “Guys. Can I just say sometimes working out sucks!!! This week has been rough. As I like to say motivation is fleeting. Inspiration can last a lifetime. What’s your inspiration?! Oh and I had to workout. Two love scenes in one week at GH. Rough life I know😉. Someone has to do it right!!”

Now, top on the list of bed mates; is Brook Lynn played by Amanda Setton, since the show has been building chemistry between Brook Lynn and Julian for the past few months.  Will Julian become even more involved with the Q family, which is already on shaking ground, given the fact he has kept the secret that Wiley is Michael’s (Chad Duell) bio-son?

Could Julian end up back in between the sheets with former flame Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn)? Fans have wanted a reuniting of the duo known as “Julexis” for a few years now.

Will the two finally given in to their passion for each other, or could there be a surprise on the way that comes out of left field that might spark a sudden interest for Mr, Jerome?  Check out Will’s post below.
