Late this afternoon, Anthony Geary (Luke) of General Hospital issued a statement on the passing early this morning of Elizabeth Taylor, who appeared on GH as Helena Cassadine back in the 80’s. Throughout the years that followed, the duo maintained a very special relationship with one another.

Geary’s statement, “Elizabeth was more than a great star, she was an amazing human being. Her world famous physical beauty paled in comparison to the beauty that radiated from her heart and soul. She had great humor, didn’t take herself too seriously, and had the most wonderful bawdy laugh. She was a fierce and loyal friend and tireless advocate. She dedicated herself to education, treatment and the search for a cure for HIV/AIDS long before it was fashionable to do so. Back in the dark days of ignorance and prejudice against people stricken with the disease, Elizabeth was at the forefront of the battle. Ever ready to give love, comfort, and dignity to those whose lives had been devastated and cut short, her generosity was nothing short of spectacular. It made her furious to hear anyone claim that people who had HIV/AIDS were somehow morally inferior or that the disease was some kind of punishment. I was fortunate enough to call her my friend and every moment I spent in her company was unforgettable. I loved her very much. The world is a little darker, a little colder, a little less beautiful without her.”

TONIGHT: Rick Hearst Makes His AMBITIONS Debut

Not many can play duplicitous, back-stabbing and twisted like former GH, B&B, Y&R and GL star, Rick Hearst!  The multi-Daytime Emmy winner is the perfect fit for the rollercoaster-ride-a-minute soap, Ambitions.

And now, Hearst is set to make his Ambitions debut on Tuesday night’s December 3rd episode of the OWN soap opera (10PMET/9PMCT), written and created by Jamey Giddens.

On Ambitions, Hearst takes on the role of  Jerry Lannigan, a hot shot celebrity criminal attorney, who just so happened to go to law school with Evan (Brian White) and Stephanie Lancaster (Robin Givens).  And believe it or not, it turns out Stephanie actually has a real friend, or does she?

Watch a preview below for when Stephanie sees Jerry again for the first time below, followed by the promo for tonight’s episode.
