After a whirlwind weekend with speculation abound that General Hospital bad boy, Brandon Barash is being shown the front-door or being “killed-off” as Johnny Zacchara there finally has been some “official” word.  The head honcho over in Port Charles, executive producer Frank Valentini tweeted that Brandon is not going anywhere! Valentini tweeted, Hey, what’s with all these rumors about Brandon Barash leaving? NOT HAPPENING.”

Over the weekend, fans started an Twitter petition to save Brandon’s job when hearing of the exit rumors.  His scene partner and castmate Kelly Sullivan (Kate/Connie) retweeted a link to Barash who then stated “No idea if I’m being written off.  Kelly Sullivan is being a good friend and scene partner. That being said, I accept any hand I’m dealt.”

On-Air On-Soaps spoke to Kelly Sullivan today about the Twitter incident and much more in an upcoming new feature with the talented actress coming later this week!

So what do you think about Brandon staying on board at GH? Happy? Let us know!

I heard this over the weekend from a very trusted source who takes a lot of flack for her scoops, but is more often than not proven correct. I’m hoping it will be a “come back from the dead scenario”. He’s a great actor and GH castmember, but Carletini is a very talented team, so I trust their decisions.

As that outher source always says…”Nothing is written in stone.” With soaps that is so true and I hope to god Brandon is staying!

I love Brandon as Johnny and want him to continue. I hope he will be reunited with his mother Claudia now that Sarah Brown is leaving DOOL. It was great watching Sonny find Kate in Johnny’s bed today. I love Johnny messing with Sonny’s mind

I have not watched the tape yet will tonight going fishing for a week so you guys keep up the watching on the one soap I feel is trying to turn it around. Look these guys are not stupid Johnny is very important I am just uncomfortable with this organ donor storyline I am not sure that would be something Johnny would be involved in. But look their are rumors going around that little Jake did not die that he is trying to reverse that I trust these guys I feel they care for the show he does like twists FV &RC.

what a relief, i’m hoping he will stay, they will get Sarah Brown back and add Tamara Braun, to play a relative, i.e. maybe sister to claudia, and then all hell will really break loose in port charles.

BRILLIANT IDEA: Brown and Braun playing sisters. Johnny would have a mother and an aunt. The three of them together would be incredible.

I had not heard the rumor, but I am very happy it is not true? Brandon Barash is a good actor, and I enjoy Johnny on GH, especially his interaction with the females and his crazy grandfather! While it does not look too promising at this moment, the Johnny/Carly pairing is growing on me. Speaking of Brandon, does anyone know if he and Natalie Hall (Colby from AMC) have gotten married yet, I know they are engaged?

I don’t really care for Johnny……………….What happen with Robin inthat hospital she is being held…No more on that has been said!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry but I like John McBain over Johnny any day……Johnny doesn’t do anything for me…Johnny’s character is a bit boring……………….Need to change it or something…. I wouldn’t miss him……….This is my opinion………………..I like J. McBain’s character so much BETTER…. He’s my kind of guy…

Susan M.

I miss OLTL & GH doesn’t fill up that gap completely for me…No Viki , Bo, Nora ,Roxy ,Clint,Natalie,Even Nigel.The list goes on………….I am and will alway’s be a A loyal OLTL soap fan……………………And when I see them on GH it makes me happy inside……………………………

Jessica Tuck Returns This Week To General Hospital

There will be a Cassandra Pierce sighting in Port Charles, which means one of the best actresses we know, Jessica Tuck, will be back on your screens this week on ABC’s General Hospital.

Tuck, who became soap-famous for her role as Megan on One Life to Live from 1988-1992 and then went on to primetime television roles returns to the canvas as the evil Cassandra, a role she debuted on GH back in 2017.  Viewers last saw her pop during Michael (Chad Duell) and Sasha’s (Sofia Matteson)vacation.

But this time look for Tuck to mix-it up with GH icon Genie Francis (Laura) in some major showdown scenes, when she holds the mayor and Curtis (Donnell Turner) at gunpoint on the Haunted Star.  Will these two be able to get the on-the-run villainess locked up for good? Don’t necessarily count on it.

Of course, a man who both Cassandra and Laura have an interest in bringing down, Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) plays heavy into the story. But will Cassandra do a double-cross of a double-cross? Who else may get a dose of something potentially lethal that she has been concocting?

Jessica told Soap Opera Digest that when she found out she would be working with Genie Francis; “I was like Woo-hoo! Hot diggity!  I mean, like many people, I have been a fan of hers forever and ever and ever.  It was fun to meet the person behind the character I’ve gotten to know.”
