GH Nurses’ Ball 2023 Part Two: The Curtain Comes Up and Lives are On the Line

The General Hospital Nurses’ Ball continued on Wednesday’s episode and it was time for the music and the drama to kick into high gear.

After Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) open the show, the nurses including: Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), Deanna (Dioni Michelle Collins) and Amy (Risa Dorken) perform, along with Dr. TJ Ashford (Tajh Bellow), to the song “Lovely Day” by Bill Withers.  TJ shows the attendees that not only does he have a good bedside matter, but he can carry a tune, and do a little choreography to boot.


The 2023 Nurses’ Ball would also be the first without former GH head nurse Epiphany Johnson taking the stage, since she just passed away in story (and in real life, GH recently lost its beloved Sonya Eddy). Not to be forgotten, Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) pays tribute to her friend and mentor.

Linc (Dan Buran) is getting more creepy backstage causing major problems for Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) and Blaze (Jacqueline Grace Lopez). Later, Brook Lynn admits to Chase (Josh Swickard) she feels bad for signing the NDA that Linc gave to her.

At the safehouse, Lucy (Lynn Herring) is all up in her feelings as she watches the ball, and continues to be upset she is not there in-person. After she exits to her room, Anna (Finola Hughes) tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) she wishes she were at the ball too, because it always makes her feel closer to Robin.

Leave it to Valentin to cheer her up … he finds a tiny piano in the attic of the safehouse .. how convenient? Next, he gets close to Anna on the floor and serenades her.  As the song continues, the visual morphs into a fantasy-like sequence of Anna dancing with Valentin while he croons.  This gives viewers not only the chance to hear James Patrick Stuart sing as part of the Nurses’ Ball episodes, but to see Finola Hughes dance.

Back at the ball, Jordan (Tanisha Harper) and Molly (Haley Pullos) give TJ props for his performance in the opening number.  As they celebrate, Jordan notices that Molly and TJ are not drinking alcohol. They admit they are trying to conceive a baby. Jordan is thrilled.

Next up and hitting the Nurses’ Ball stage are Josslyn (Eden McCoy) and Trina (Tabyana Ali) who perform the Maren Morris smash hit, “The Middle”. Spencer (Nicholas Chavez) comes upon Trina post-performance, and gives her major kudos and throws a bit of shade Josslyn’s way, saying that Trina did much better than Joss during the musical number.  Backstage, Josslyn is confronted by Linc just as Brook Lynn comes upon the scene.

Back at the safehouse, Lucy admits to Valentin and Ann, that earlier in the day, she secretly stopped by the Metro Court to check on the ball.  They become gravely concerned.  Lucy swears no one recognized her.  She goes on to say she had the car service pick her up and drop her off down the street.

Immediately, Anna says they have to leave the safehouse. As the trio exit, a shot is fired Valentin’s way as Victor’s (Charles Shaughnessy) plan is finally coming to fruition.

The performers were cute and talented. Of course I didn’t recognize any of the music and Spencer making such a big deal over Trina’s singing as he watched through his rose-colored glasses. They make such a big deal over him, I wondered why he wasn’t strutting his stuff on stage? I’m worried about Joss now that Brook Lyn’s old agent has set his sights on her. What a piece of crap this guy is, no woman’s safe near him.

Spencer is messy, no question. Due to his sad, strange and thoroughly dysfunctional upbringing, he lacks a compass when it comes to expressing loyalty. Spencer wasn’t reacting to Dex as an elitist but rather, as a loyal friend who instinctively knows that Dex was instrumental in hurting his best friend. And he’s so brilliantly played by Chavez. Dex was on the job and probably should not be throwing back cocktails. The one who irks me the most is Carly’s mini-me. Joss has incarnated her mother’s worse traits-she is sanctimonious, judgmental with zero self-awareness of her own moral failures. She cheated on Cameron but orally rewrites history when she claims that she didn’t become involved with Dex until after she broke up with Cameron. Britt saves her life on the docks but Joss abandons her so she can have hot survival sex with Dex. Then she keeps quiet about Britt’s heroics and her involvement with the crime. And yet, like with her mother, the story arc takes a nose dive and Joss doesn’t face the consequences of her actions. There is no comeuppance, therefore no viewer satisfaction. So she’s able to wag her finger and holler in Spencer’s face from her white tower of sanctimony.

Dex is drinking tequila shots, then performing in the stripper act. That doesn’t seem like things he should be doing as “Sonny’s bodyguard”. Especially when a hitman of “unknown origin” was trying to kill them just last week. If another shooter had made their way into the Nurses Ball, what was Dex going to do, whip a gun out of a secret pocket in his boxers??

GH has some very talented cast members. I especially liked the opening number and it was good to see the characters that we don’t see very often. I thought Valentin’s singing to Anna was beautiful . He’s very talented. Overall this year’s Nurse’s Ball has not disappointed. Though I’m fearful of what Victor has planned.

Priscilla S…My favorite act during the Nurses’s Ball has been Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) singing to his love and dancing partner, Anna (Finola Hughes). Both come to these roles naturally…JPS is the son of one of the singing British duo, Chad and Jeremy, and Anna stared as a dancer with John Travolta in the movie Staying Alive.

Who wrote the song “If you believe in love” sung by JPS? Was it an original?

James Patrick Stuart wrote that song himself.


Boy, that Gladys is a piece of work, poor Sasha when she finds out, knowing her she’ll blame herself. I would like to see her and Cody get together, if it can’t be Chase.

I hate Gladys with the passion of a thousand suns. Why the hook killer had to kill her son, and not his mother, is a travesty of justice.

Thanks, for writing this. I thought the same thing, why they took that lovely man instead of his bitch of a mother!

Gladys sure can be annoying, but Bonnie Burroughs plays her to the hilt. With her move of framing Cody, it looks like we might be nearing the end of the road for her time in PC. I’d be surprised if the writers thought they had a long-term character when they first introduced Gladys, but she was the best thing to come out of the lackluster Dev storyline. Bonnie not being included in the 60th photo shoot is another indication Gladys might be headed back to Bridgeport in the near future.

You’re right, Steve. Bonnie reminds me a bit of the actress who first played Opal Gardener from AMC. Both characters are/were wince inducing and played by incredibly by very talented actresses.

Does anyone know the song title from chase and blaze?

does anyone know the name of the song that Chase and Blaze sang today

I want to know this too !!!

This remark came from another Harry as I would never use three exclamation marks. As F Scott Fitzgerald one said,” Never use exclamation marks. It’s like laughing at your own jokes.”

Great quote Harry – feel free to switch to OG Harry. I had to change mine due to interlopers using Steve.

I never knew that’s what OG stood for! Ahem, please ignore that exclamation mark. It’s just a pesky interloper trying to make a fool out of me (not a hard endeavor).

I tried Google my question about 40 different ways and nope.

The song selections were pretty awful this year.

2 days to go. I’m hoping for a performance surprise. We need something to liven the show up. It’s the 60th. We should get a GH Legend who can entertain (I can name at least 4).
I think that the cast songs should be more popular. The song Blaze and Chase sang was ? Love the actors but song choice nope.

The opening number and Trina/Josh songs are both huge hits. Chase/Blaze was an original. Ned (or Eddie Maine) will perform before it’s all over.

Thought we’d get a Rick Springfield (Eli Love) performance or maybe even a John Stamos (Blackie Parrish) sighting. Instead, we got a flashback to Felicia as a clown.

Do you know the name of the Chase/Blaze song or who wrote it? I liked it.

The only one I liked so far was Trina and Joss, and even that wasn’t great. There are too many extras and people we don’t even know. I hope it gets better…

Well I am mostly bored and disappointed. As Beth said, too many unknowns and maybe I’m OLD fashioned but there’s nothing like a romantic love song or Jazz number that everyone can relate to as they did the previous years. Liesel and Franco, Ava’s You Don’t Own Me, Sonny and his Dad signing The Summer Wind, WOW! Sorry, Maxi’s kids and Ooma was way too long and more like a backyard talent show.

The kids’ magic act was mainly just a plot point to have Liesl’s disappearance not be an obvious kidnapping. She’s not one to go quietly.

Was the “Devil in Disguise” song also an original?
If not, who is the artist?

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”
