General Hospital and Cougar Town’s, Carolyn Hennesy revealed while co-hosting the new On-Air On-Soaps Podcast that she has been approached by ABC Disney/Hyperion to write a book about all the characters of Port Charles from Spinelli’s point of view!  Hennesy whose series of Tween Novels have been best-sellers is currently promoting, Pandora Gets Heart.

Also during the podcast, Hennesy gives insight to listeners on what went on behind the scenes of the Michael Corinthos switcheroo involving the exiting, Michael, Drew Garrett and the new Michael. Chad Duell.  “The only thing I can share is Drew’s reaction.  For it to happen mid storyline this was a decision that was not made lightly.  I do know that Drew came into the make-up and hair room and was obviously devastated, but an hour later he talked to his co-stars who said, ‘You are young, gorgeous and talented,  and you will land on your feet ,’ and he managed to walk out with his head held high.   I do know Chad is a lovely actor.  What he has to do on the witness stand… now there is a performance!  He had pages to do that particular day and it was unbelievable.”

Steve Burton also weighs in on the Michael Corinthos situation during our sit-down interview with the soap superstar during the podcast.  Speaking on Duell, “For this kid to come on the show and have a fourteen page scene, and do it in one take, and be really good, after two days of  not knowing where you are going…he did a great job.  It was probably the third or fourth time I heard the crew clap for anyone, ever!”

The news is horrible, to say the least. I will not be watching GH in the future, as I feel that GH fans are NOT being heard.
I wish everyone, (actors) well at GH.

Signed,
No longer a GH viewer

After seeing the courtroom scenes, I totally understand why they chose to change actors. I didn’t dislike Drew, but Chad changes the character and it feels as though his character will have an interesting journey that will be able to grow and build. Drew’s version was becoming to cold and unemotional, he will do well to try other roles to grow as an actor. I’m excited to see what Chad’s version will bring to the landscape of an already exciting show. (This coming from someone who was laid up in the hospital, had a friend call to tell me about… Read more »

Ainsworth tagged General Hospital in her IG story post and noted Prospect Studios were the show is taped along with a call sheet.

Lexi was last seen in September of this year, when Kristina was reunited with her very-much-alive father, Sonny Corinthos.

No word yet on when Ainsworth will be back on air on GH, but stay tuned!

Ingo Rademacher Speaks Out On His Dismissal From GH Sharing: “I Was Hoping to Play Jax For Another 10 or 25 Years and Unfortunately, That’s Not Going to Happen”

For the first time since he was fired for not adhering to General Hospital’s and Disney/ABC’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate, Ingo Rademacher (Ex-Jax), addressed his exit from the soap opera via an “official video” message on his Instagram account.

Ingo expressed: “I’m sorry that I didn’t put out this video earlier, but this is about thanking you guys, the fans of the show and also the GH crew and cast. I was on the show for 25 years. They were like my family a lot of the people there. I was hoping to play Jax for another 10 or 25 years and unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. I want to thank you guys for sticking with Jax for 25 years and I’m sorry that I’m not there anymore to play Jax, which is still something that I am trying to process  … it’s just kind of crazy.”

Rademacher also took aim at his former co-star, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) for announcing on Twitter that he was no longer on the show, before he had a chance to do so, which he says was a huge disappointment to him given that they worked together for 25 years.

He went on to say how he appreciated all the positive comments from the fans adding, “A lot of you come on there to say that you’re vaccinated but stand for medical freedom, I love hearing that, because I believe it should be a choice.”  Ingo continued to express his view, “I don’t agree with vaccine mandates or corporations ever being able to mandate a vaccine to keep your job.”

The actor closed with another nod to the viewers of GH adding, “Thank you so much for supporting me for 25 years. I will have more news later on, but for now, just wanted to thank all of you amazing fans. Thank you.”

You can watch Rademacher’s full statement via his IG post below.  Then, let us know what you thought of Ingo’s long-awaited exit message in the comment section.

I’m so impressed with the way they navigate the Covid protocols. It’s not easy but we’ll worth it. We’ve got some fun storylines coming up. I’ve been thrown in the middle of a current storyline and I think Felicia’s part in it gives it some color. Stay tuned!”

Earlier in the week on Tuesday via Twitter, Kristina expressed: “Tomorrow I head back to work on General Hospital! Lucky me. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of that family once again. Here we go. More to come. Felicia Scorpio rides again.”
