General Hospital’s Finola Hughes (Anna Devane) and Ian Buchanan (Duke Lavery) were the special guests on a brand new episode of  “A Spoonful of Paolo”, when host Paolo Presta visited the duo on the set of General Hospital for a very special video interview in honor of GH’s upcoming 50th anniversary!

During their chat, Finola and Ian discuss with Paolo what it has been like to have all the GH favorites from its heyday return, their enduring friendship, and Paolo gives Finola some kudos for her Emmy-worthy performance of last year when Anna’ s daughter Robin (Kimberly McCullugh) “died”.

One of our favorite parts was when Finola and Ian were relating the first day the two of them began to work together on the GH set, and executive producer, Frank Valentini had called them upstairs to his office.

Finola explained, “The first day Ian came back, he said, “Oh God. They are going to make us do the Tango.”  We also heard that Steve Burton (Ex-Jason) was leaving.  So Ian said to me, “The only thing I hope is that they don’t ask me to shoot Steve Burton.  I really don’t want to do that. ”  So we come into Frank’s office, and these are the two things we said in the elevator to each other:  “Oh my God! They are going to make us do the Tango,” and Ian said ( in regards to Steve Burton) “It’s the only thing I hope I don’t get to do.”  So we go into Frank’s office and he just blurted it out, “I just wanted to tell you Ian,  your Faison!

Paolo also plays the hilarious Speed Round, a staple of  “A Spoonful of Paolo”, with Finola and Ian to see if they know the history of their characters, each other, and more!

Watch the interview below! Then,  let us know what you think of Finola and Ian’s comments? And, are you rooting for Anna and Duke to be together?

Kelly Thiebaud Opens Up on Her Exit from General Hospital, Taping Britt’s Tragic Death Scenes, and Parting Thoughts on Co-Stars

Just a few weeks ago on the January 4th episode of General Hospital, viewers were left devastated when Dr. Britt Westbourne succumbed to a fatal poisoning after a confrontation with ‘The Hook’.

While it was revealed that Daytime Emmy winner, Kelly Thiebaud, was exiting the ABC soap opera at the end of 2022, many thought the story would see Britt leaving Port Charles to deal with her declining health due to Huntington’s Disease in private, in order to keep the door open for a possible return down the line.  However, that was not meant to be.  When a report from Deadline surfaced back in August of 2022, it indicated that Kelly was returning to her primetime role on ABC’s Station 19, which caused some confusion and rumors of just what would Thiebaud’s ultimate status be with the daytime drama series.

Now, in a very special exit interview for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Kelly chats with Michael Fairman and clarifies what led to her decision to leave her role as Dr. Britt Westbourne.

Talking with Fairman direct from London, Kelly, who won a Daytime Emmy in 2022 for the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, reveals how it came to pass that GH would kill-off the character of Britt by becoming another victim of ‘The Hook’, and more.

During the conversation, Thiebaud shares her thoughts on working with her former GH co-stars including: Steve Burton (ex-Jason), Parry Shen (Brad), Kirsten Storms (Maxie), Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Cassandra James (Terry), Roger Howarth (Austin) and Josh Kelly (Cody), as well as some of her favorite memories throughout her run on the series which began in 2012.

Kelly took the character from being the manipulative ‘Britch’ as an interloper in the romance of Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Sabrina (Teresa Castillo), all the way to becoming a well-loved character to root for.

While, GH viewers witnessed Britt’s shocking death scenes, Kelly weighs-in on taping those moments, as well as Britt’s emotional goodbye birthday party, and having the opportunity to portray a character who was trying to navigate her life, while suffering from the effects of Huntington’s Disease.

In addition, Thiebaud gives a very special ‘thank you’ and shout out to the fans for their enduring support as she looks forward to new roles and new adventures ahead.

Denise Crosby Makes a Return to General Hospital

After a major fallout with her parents, Carolyn (Denise Crosby) and Jeff Webber (William R. Moses), Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) was devastated, in particular because they concocted a plan to make her forget all about the tragic situation earlier in her life. That being, when Finn’s (Michael Easton) late wife, Reiko, fell down a flight of steps and eventually died after she struggled with Liz.

Apparently, the story is not over, when Denise Crosby reprises her role of Carolyn beginning the week of January 23rd on General Hospital.

Talking about her return in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Crosby previewed, “She (Carolyn) wants to make a connection with her daughter and try to make amends for something that is almost impossible to make amends for. She knows it could go really wrong, but she can’t live with herself if she doesn’t take the shot.”

Something tells us there is more to the story of why Carolyn could have returned to Port Charles? Any thoughts?

Let us know your theories about Elizabeth’s mother upcoming return to Port Charles in the comment section below.
