GH Nurses’ Ball 2023 Part One: The Red Carpet Arrivals Plus Victor Puts His Plan In Motion

It’s baaccck! The General Hospital Nurses’ Ball has begun. Residents of Port Charles and the viewers-at-home went three years without the annual bash that brings awareness for a good cause, amidst the glitz, glamour and on-stage performances.

With the Covid-19 pandemic mostly in the rear window, GH decided what better way to celebrate their 60th anniversary then to bring back the campy, clever ball that criss-crosses high drama with plenty of entertainment.

In part one: Sydney Val Jean (guest star and Grey’s Anatomy favorite, Chandra Wilson) wastes no time in giving us the scoop from the red carpet as PC’s finest and most notorious make their way into the ball.  A self-proclaimed GH fan for life, it looked like Wilson was having the time of her life dishing with the likes of Sonny (Maurice Benard), Dex (Evan Hofer), Carly (Laura Wright), Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez), Jordan (Tanisha Harper), Portia (Brooke Kerr) and more in her fictional character.

Meanwhile, Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) needs a distraction from her bone marrow transplant tomorrow, so she and Michael (Chad Duell) stay close on the couch, turn on the TV, and are getting ready to see what’s in store from and by their friends and family.

But, is there anything better than Lucy (Lynn Herring) throwing shade at Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and anyone else on the red carpet, as her role is thus far completely diminished while she has to hide out in the safe house along with Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and Anna (Finola Hughes).

Later, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) and Sam (Kelly Monaco) arrive together, although Sam almost takes a fall during her red carpet entrance, followed by Drew (Cameron Mathison).

Meanwhile, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) is backstage making sure everything goes correctly for the musical numbers. Chase walks in and gives her a compliment on how she has made everyone who’s day job is not performing the feeling that they have been doing this forever. The sparks fly between them. However, Linc shows up and ruins the whole thing. Once alone backstage, Linc and Brook Lynn get into it when he threatens her if she pulls anything.  We think she may find herself in peril and Chase will save the day.

Back to the red carpet, now Chase is dressed up and enters with his brother, Finn (Michael Easton), while Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) happens to arrive at the same time.  Finn asks if he could join Liz for the ball, which she says ‘yes’ to his offer.

Before Sydney signs off on the red carpet she reminds us what the Nurses’ Ball is all about – raising awareness and money for HIV/AIDS.  Then, in a touching moment, Maxie’s voice is heard through the loud speakers. She tells the guests a bit about the purpose and history of the ball, and that this one is to also celebrate the hospital’s 60th anniversary.  Just then, the doors open to the ballroom, and the 2023 Nurses’ Ball is about to start!

Outside is his limo, Victor (Charles Shaughnessy) is met by his henchman.  They have traced Lucy’s whereabouts to the safe house.  A snide Victor relishes this opportunity, because not only will he find a very much alive Lucy, but he will find Anna and Valentin, as well.  “Let the games begin” says Victor as we fade to black.

Now as far as the Nurses’ Ball fashion, who do you think had the best dress/look going on? We thought: Jordan, Brook Lynn, Nina (Cynthia Watros), Ava (Maura West), and Trina (Tabyana Ali).

all the women look so beautiful in their dresses, they all looked Vogue ready, hope GH photographer took a cast photo of them all because they were killing it.

I don’t understand what they are saying above about Victor tracking Lucy to the safe House. I thought she was somewhere in Port Charles.

Part one lacked a lot of the energy of previous ones. I personally think the gowns all look very similar. The most interesting part is seeing what Victor is up to. Hope it gets better as the week goes on.

There’s way too much glitter and sequins going on the ladies. Reminds me of a Project Runway challenge where they only had access to one rack in Mood.

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but sleeves on an evening gown come a close second. Especially in April in Upstate NY.

Nina wore long sleeves and no sequins. She also looked the best!


Everyone was beautiful especially Portia!! Ans Ava’s earrings were beyond exquisite. BUT what is up with Jackie Zeman’s hair?? It looks like straw. Would have thought professional hairdresser on set could do something.

Please, this is not meant in a bad way, but over the years the hair does get very thin and straw like. A hairpiece would probably be the next best thing.

Agree Violet, but this is TV and hairpieces, wigs, extensions etc are all available and would enhance her look. Jackie Zeman has a great figure and the gown is beautiful on her so I just think they should have spent some time and pulled her look all together from top to bottom.

If you read the last sentence of my answer to you, I think that was exactly what I was suggesting, a hairpiece of some sort.

And now, we know she had cancer and a month later she has passed.

I had no idea she had cancer. Don’t try to make me feel guilty about making an innocent comment.

Hi Violet:) The safe house is somewhere in Port Charles. Anna was able to view the firework celebration for Epiphany from the patio of the safe house.

Thanks, I thought the safe house was away from P.C. Well, she’s done her damage now, who will pay for her stupid, selfish behavior?

I hope & hulu keep the eternally damned episodes streaming on time. The last thing GH needs is pre-emptions during their 60th anniversary week.

I get that the Orange Idiot being arrested is history in the making, but given the fact that cameras are not allowed in the courtroom, is it really worth live coverage just to show a bunch of corporate media talking heads speculating about what they think is happening??

I couldn’t agree more with you Satan!

I’m watching on

I absolutely loved Nurse’s Ball part 1. Chandra Wilson was great. Funny too! And the dresses/tuxes were beautiful. Most of the women in sequins was a great touch. Of course, Lucy will bring this all crashing down. Looking forward to today’s episode.

Don’t get me wrong! I love the Nurses Ball and support the charities that it supports. But this episode was 36 minutes of my life I will never get back. What a snore. I find “red carpet” crap boring as hell, and I hoped against hope that some story would actually happen between the pomp and circumstance. No such luck. Hope tomorrow’s better!

There are no shortages of sequins on that set. lol

One the male photographers at nurse’s ball also starred in The Body Guard ? Am I correct? What’s his name?

Photographer at the nurse’s ball also started The Bodyguard as the crazed fan. Is this correct?

It was worth the wait after seeing Donald in court yesterday. Karma is a bitch.

Hope you enjoyed it, Michael. He’s never going to jail. LOL!

Bill W,
You are most likely right. As long as there’s a hole to slither out, he will.

I’m tired of seeing all of the women on GH in the same sparkle material they wore for NYE/Britt’s birthday party

My post gets censored from time to time. I either deal with it or leave the site, right? But how come people can call Trump names and it gets posted here? I thought we were not supposed to be political, racist or bully folks? And just so all you know, NONE of the politicians you or I vote for care about US, they only care about THEMSELVES!

General Hospital’s John J. York On His Health Battle & Living Life While Waiting for Bone Marrow Transplant: “Let’s Just Go One Day At a Time”

John J. York’s positive outlook on his current medical diagnosis is quite remarkable, as his approach might be one many facing the same circumstances might consider.  The beloved General Hospital vet, where he has played Mac Scorpio for 22 years, revealed last week that he is battling cancer.

The popular soap star shared that he has been fighting myelodysplastic syndromes, or MDS, and multiple smoldering myeloma: two blood and bone marrow disorders.

York spoke with PEOPLE about how he found out about his diagnosis, the support his wife Vicki has shown throughout, and how he lives life day to day, while he waits for an all-important bone marrow transplant.

The actor shared what happened the moment he learned of his diagnosis: “(The doctor) was explaining all these different things and cells and all different levels and words that had, you know, 25 letters in them. And I didn’t understand. And Vicki finally came out and said, ‘Does John have cancer?’ And he said, ‘Yes.’ And I’m sitting there, I’m really just like a fly on the wall, listening to him talk to Vicki because she was the one asking all the questions.  At the end of his doctor’s conversation with Vicki, York’s one question was simple: ‘Why do I feel so good?’”

Vicki and John were in the process of moving to Tennessee to be closer to their daughter, Skyler, but considering UCLA in Los Angeles as John’s treatment center.  In the end, Skyler’s husband suggested Vanderbilt University for John’s cancer center so he did not have to travel back and forth to the west coast.

Since March of this year, John has had IV chemo treatments every month, with another one coming up in September. On that, John expressed: “It is what it’s, you know what I mean? And then everybody’s gotta get their treatment. And then you go home, go about your life and you play with the kids. And here we are.”

Currently, York is waiting for a bone marrow transplant. He has been moved up the donor priority list. If anyone is interested, and you are between 18-40, you can join the registry here

York shared how Vicki is coping with what’s ahead: “Yeah, she’s scared, but believe it or not, I really kinda wasn’t because I feel great. Personally, I feel like it’s in God’s hands. God’s will be done. It’s gonna work out okay, one way or another. I’m either gonna survive or I’m not. And life goes on and things are gonna be okay for everybody… Let’s just go one day at a time.”

Share your well-wishes, and support and love to John, as he goes through the next phase of his health battle and let’s hope a bone marrow transplant donor is found for him soon. After all, we all want to see Mac Scorpio return to Port Charles, but more importantly, we all want John to feel better and beat this.Comment below.

Billy Miller’s Mother Issues Statement On His Passing

Patricia Miller, the mother of the late Billy Miller, has come forward and issued a touching statement on the tragic death of her beloved son at age 43.  The statement was shared by Billy’s longtime manager, Marnie Sparer, via social media.

Billy was best-known for his performances as Richie Nowack on All My Children, Billy Abbott of The Young and the Restless and Jason Morgan/Drew Cain on General Hospital, as well as countless primetime roles.  Throughout his career, Miller took home three Daytime Emmys for his work.

“I would like to share the following thoughts,” Patricia began. “I want to personally thank the many fans & personal friends for the overwhelming amount of love, prayers & condolences sent to me and my family on the devastating death of my beautiful son BJ – Billy Miller.”

Patricia continued with these sentiments, as she wanted to clear up any misinterpretations on this death: “He fought a long hard valiant battle with bipolar depression for years. He did everything he could to control the disease. He loved his family, his friends and his fans but in the end the disease won the fight and he surrendered his life. The other causes of death being told are not true. I wish they were but they just aren’t. We all loved him so much and are desperately trying to deal with our loss. I will have nothing further to say. Thanks for the love and support.”

The soap world as well as Billy’s family, friends, loved ones, and colleagues are in deep mourning for this talented man, who was gone too soon.

Billy Miller Remembered by His GH and Y&R Co-Stars As They Share Grief on His Passing

UPDATED: On Sunday, longtime friends and co-stars of actor Billy Miller took to social media to share their remembrances and sorrow on the passing of the three-time Daytime Emmy-winning star.

Miller passed away on Friday, September 15th as first reported and confirmed by Michael Fairman TV.  While the official cause of death has not been revealed, it has been related to the press by his management that Billy was suffering from manic depression.

Billy played Jason Morgan/Drew Cain on General Hospital from 2014-2019, and prior to that won 3 Daytime Emmys for his role as Billy Abbott on The Young and the Restless from 2008-2014.  He started his soap career on All My Children in the role of Richie Novack back in 2007-2008.

Below are just some of the tributes pouring in for Billy:

Eric Braeden: “We lost BILLY MILLER! It saddens me deeply! He was a very gifted actor! Amelia(Victoria) and I took him to dinner one evening while he was in tough negotiations, and I remember telling him to reconsider, because rarely is an actor given a part that describes him almost perfectly, and to not make the mistake I had seen some actors make over my 60’years in the business, that they are indispensable! Once an actor thinks that or is told that by some sycophants, they step onto a slippery road…usually to oblivion! “BILLY BOY” was not only a damn good actor but a nice man! May he rest in peace and meet up with KRISTOFF in the BEYOND, ‘the undiscovered country from whose bourn no Traveller returns “ and tell each other jokes! They were both loved by their colleagues!”

Melissa Claire Egan: “My beautiful friend. I love you. I’m so sad. And I’m so sorry.”

Chrishell Stause: “Still processing this. Too many feelings, but you are gone too soon and I’m so happy I got to work with you all those years, but also call you a friend. I hope you are at peace now ”

Jess Walton:RIP to my precious Billy Miller. You were and ARE  much loved by all of us who knew you”

Daniel Goddard: “The world is going to be just that little bit more dull without you in it… you had that “it” factor that lit up every room you were in. Rest In Peace Mate ”

He didn’t blink when I asked him to put on this shirt to help raise up the marginalized artists in our industry. He always seemed to have his heart in the right place and I always laughed when I was around him. #FlightOfAngels#RIP #BillyMiller #bereft”

Frank Valentini: “I am devastated to hear news of the incredibly talented Billy Miller’s passing. On behalf of the entire (General Hospital) family, our hearts go out to his family and friends during this difficult time.”

Elizabeth Hendrickson: “Today I should have been sending you a Happy Birthday text BJ. Truth be told i hated calling you BJ but that’s what your closest friends /family called you. I eventually caved. The last couple years we kept in touch through birthdays and monumental moments or when we wanted to vent about “ work”. You gave me a lot of advise. When i understood it always mumbling your words. We always joked about that.
We didn’t text or talk often. But I’m glad the last couple times we did, we had a great banter like we used to. I knew that we always held a special place in each others hearts, no matter what. You were such an amazing friend to your inner circle. They were your family. You would do ANYTHING for them. That’s who really were. As loyal as they came. I’m sad and yes, mad at myself that I wasn’t being a better friend, checking in more often because I was thinking of you recently. I was. I hope you know that we are all here now texting each other, sending pictures and sharing memories of how fucking AWESOME you were. This hole in my heart will never be filled. Goodnight, sweet Billy.”

Scott Clifton: “This is not fair. We deserved so much more of him. Rest in peace, Billy. You’re immortal now.”

Coby Ryan McLaughlin (ex-Shiloh, GH): “Man… this sucks. Billy and I played on GH together for nearly a year. He was intense, focused, cool and kind. He knew the hamster wheel that I was about to start spinning on all too well, and always made himself available to help the new guy….. Rest easy, man…

Michael Muhney (ex-Adam, Y&R):  “Billy, My fellow Texas brother. You lit up every room with your smile. Your quiet intensity onscreen was second only to your gentle kindness and genuine care in private. We recently shared work on an Apple series, and your encouragements during and after that process, and your kindness over the years are now but a few of the things I’ll hold on to as warm memories of you. What a big heart you had. You were bigger and braver and bolder than this life. You were legend. There is no landing to this final cliffhanger, the wings you’ve spent your lifetime earning have carried you up to that wonderful place in the sky. Happy Birthday Billy Miller.”

The Young and the Restless:The daytime community mourns the loss of Billy Miller who graced Y&R with his talent for many years as Billy Abbott. Our deepest sympathies to his family and loved ones.”

Kathleen Gati: “I am beyond sad to hear this tragic news.#BillyMiller was always so kind, professional and a wonderfully talented colleague  @GeneralHospital Deepest condolences to his family, friends and fans.”

TK Weaver: “Devastated. Hard to find words. You always gave me such good advice. You were always there for me. You were an amazing person. #BillyMiller I’ll never forget you. Please join me in praying for his family and loved ones.”

Greg Rikaart: Generous, passionate, fun, soulful and brilliant Billy. Can you just imagine the reunion between him and Jeanne? I can. Rest well, dear Billy

Sean Kanan: “Shocked and saddened to hear that Billy Miller is no longer with us. He was a terrific actor and always kind when we would see each other. I pray that his family and friends find comfort and peace during this unimaginably difficult time. #BillyMiller #YR”
