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?

TONIGHT: Kim Delaney Stars in Lifetime’s ‘The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’

Make sure to catch General Hospital and former All My Children and NYPD Blue star, Kim Delaney (Jackie, GH, Ex-Jenny, AMC) tonight on Saturday, February 20th when her highly-anticipated Lifetime movie debuts beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST which marks the cable network’s 400th original movie.

In The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, it tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island.

After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle, Hannibal) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long.

Delaney’s film, executive produced by Deborah Norville, is based off real life-events that transpired in the early 2010’s where the crimes were never solved.

In an interview with 98.1 WOGL Radio’s Glenn Kalina, Delaney shared: “There is hope in the film… but you also want an answer… what happened to all of these girls?  My character just was relentless trying to find her (daughter) or find answers where she was.  They found a bunch of other bodies, and what they learned was that they were all escorts… and then they learned there was a possible serial killer.”

Check out a promo for the movie below.

‘ABC Daytime: Back on Broadway’ Raises $130,565 For Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS In Four Day Streaming Event

Last week, ABC Daytime fans were thrilled to see some of the archival footage and performances from the ABC Daytime: Salutes Broadway Cares benefit concerts by those who were once in the mighty soap programming block that included: All My Children, One Life to Live and General Hospital. 

While only GH remains, viewers still loved seeing many of their favorites perform in the streaming event, ABC Daytime: Back on Broadway, from Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, which featured footage from those events that ran from 2005-2011 in front of a live audience in New York City.

The 2021 online event, which kicked-off on February 11th and streamed for four days, featured new content with daytime favorites including: Susan Lucci, Cameron Mathison, Anthony Geary, Kelly Ripa and more, plus performances from the past benefits, and an original dance performance from Finola Hughes (Anna Devane) on the set of GH.

John Dietrich, who directed each of the ABC Daytime Salutes Broadway Cares concerts, wrote and directed the stream. It was presented in partnership with ABC Owned Television Stations’ websites around the country with support from Good Morning America and The View.

According to Broadway World, in total, the ABC Daytime Back on Broadway event raised $130,565. The streaming total includes a matching donation of $50,000 made by Broadway Cares supporters The Dream Alliance.  Now, when combined with the seven-year run of the annual concerts, the ABC Daytime stars have raised $2,020,565 for Broadway Cares.

As part of the event week, Michael Fairman chatted with former One Life to Live star, Catherine Hickland (Ex-Lindsay Rappaport) about her performances over the years at the event, her role of Lindsay and her on-screen feud with Nora (Hillary B. Smith), and more.  You can watch it below.
