In an al- new episode of his web-based series, A Spoonful of Paolo, which is an interview show based on having your dreams come true, host Paolo Presta was beyond thrilled when he was able to visit the General Hospital studio and chat with GH icon, Genie Francis (Laura).

During their conversation, Francis talks about Laura’s strength of character and survival skills through the years, in that she is now the mayor of Port Charles, had survived being duped by Kevin’s evil twin, Ryan, and more throughout the years she has played the legendary character.

In a touching moment, Genie is shown a clip from 2015 when Presta interviewed her longtime co-star, Anthony Geary (Ex-Luke, where Geary reveals his thoughts on what made Francis so good and successful in the role of Laura, and why she was the perfect scene-partner opposite him for so many years, and how he was very protective of Genie in their early days in Port Charles.

Watch the full interview below.

Paolo always does such wonderful interviews and this was no exception. He’s a real fan and it shows in his knowledge and appreciation of General Hospital history. Genie has been one of my favorites for years. I was overjoyed when she returned after her last unceremonious departure, and I’m glad they’ve finally been giving her some story that is worthy of her talents.

There is a great interview with Maurice Benard from 2016 on Paolo’s channel as well that I came across in watching the Genie interview. Definitely worth checking out for MB fans.

Now before everyone jumps on me. I love Laura as much as anyone, but I would just love to see her dressed as befitting our Madam Mayor.I am so sick of that long striped duster/coat she usually wears and the big sweater/shawl cover-ups, etc. So what if she’s a little heavy. There are plenty of becomming, fashionable things for her to wear. Look how they dressed Tracy and Traci on Y&R. Laura is so attractive, so get the wardrobe dept. busy with some new clothes for Laura.

General Hospital Releases Extended Promo “We Have To Lean Into Hope”

As the ABC daytime drama series, General Hospital, continues to be preempted by the impeachment hearings of President Donald Trump, and episodes are not being made available on any other platform at this time, two videos were posted in last 24 hours to the official General Hospital social media accounts.

To tide you over (while you are clamoring for all-new episodes of GH) the soap released an extended promo featuring the folks in Port Charles filled with lots of joy, hope, and love.  It’s main message, “We have to lean into hope” – as the series tells us to “sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.”

Take a look at some of the reunions, hugs, and special moments featuring the Q’s, Corinthos, Cassadine and other clans in the promo below.

In addition, Finola Hughes (Anna) and Michael Easton (Finn) along with Jophielle Love (Violet) were featured in another video, where the key messaging to fans is that they are currently taping all-new episodes of GH, and that viewers should keep tuned ans posted to GH’s social channels for updates on when new episodes of GH will return.

As of late, GH has been on the upswing in the ratings, too.  So, it’s always frustrating for everyone when weeks of preemptions hit the daytime viewers  experience to enjoy the on-going stories of the soaps.

Brooklyn Rae Silzer Making A Return To General Hospital

As General Hospital continues to surprise its viewers with some notables from the show’s history, look for another fan favorite, Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma) to make her way back to Port Charles for an appearance coming up next month.

Excited to finally be able to announce she will reappear on GH, Silzer tweeted: “Dreams come true! Thank you so much @GeneralHospital @valentinifrank for having me back!”

Emma Scorpio Drake’s return is scheduled for Thursday, February 6th, but due to coverage of the President Donald Trump impeachment trial and current episodes being pushed back, this date may change.

The last time viewers saw Emma was back in 2018, when she came to town to visit her grandmother, Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) for Christmas.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nikolas & Spencer’s Reunion Leaves Ava Attempting To Bring Peace: What Did You Think Of The Key Scenes?

The long-awaited and highly-anticipated reunion of Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and his son, Spencer aired on Monday’s episode of General Hospital.  And it reminded us all how much we love Nicolas Bechtel as the young Cassadine.

While Ava (Maura West) first talks with Spencer in order to prepare him for his father’s appearance and that he is alive; when Nikolas shows up and receives a hug from Spencer, it appeared all might be OK between them, but how could it be? Nikolas let his son believe he was dead for over three years!

Next, Spencer lays into his father for choosing claiming the Cassadine fortune and keeping hidden over telling him that he was alive; leaving Spencer alone with two broken legs, in a boarding school in Europe, and grief-stricken.

The best scenes were actually shared by Maura West and Bechtel, when Ava tries to reason with the disappointed and disillusioned young man over his father’s return, which has a double meaning for her.  She says, “The person you love most in the world just came back to you. That makes you the luckiest boy on the planet. Can’t you see that?”  For Ava, she is obviously drawing a parallel to her losing her daughter, Kiki and wishing she was alive.
