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…

Tamara Braun Says Farewell To GH: “Thank You To All You Wonderful People for Your Love and Support”

Today marks the day for the final appearance of General Hospital’s Tamara Braun in the role of Dr. Kim Nero, according to a post on her Instagram account from the actress herself.

Braun posted: “Want to see Kim Nero one last time? Tune in today to say goodbye. Thank you to all you wonderful people for your love and support. #GH #goodbye #love #support #fans #gratitude #smile #bekind”

Tamara’s latest GH alter-ego (she had previously played Carly Corinthos) of Kim Nero, found herself pining after Franco (Roger Howarth) who now has her beloved Drew Cain’s memories transplanted into his brain, thanks to the horrifying procedure done by the late Shiloh and Dr. Cabot.  Kim has also been grieving for months the loss of her son, Oscar.

Watch to see how Kim exits Port Charles on the ABC daytime drama series.
