GH's Kelly Thiebaud On Crutches! What Does That Mean For Britch?



Nothing more evil than a woman on crutches?  You bet!  Especially if that woman is General Hospital’s evil Dr. Britt! According to Soap Opera Digest, actress Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) will be on-screen with crutches for a while beginning on today’s episode after breaking her femur in real life!

But where there is an unexpected injury to a soap star, leave it to the creatives behind-the-scenes to come up with something that works in story!  GH’s head writer Ron Carlivati revealed to SOD, “We had to write in the crutches and we said that she fell in the parking lot, but we sort of hinted that maybe Frisco may possibly have had something to do with it as a warning to leave his daughter. We had a little fun with that. She may be hobbling along there for a while. It sort of reminds me of Sigourney Weaver in Working Girl. It makes her all the more villainous to be on crutches!”

So GH fans, let us know when you watch upcoming episodes if Britch on crutches is more villainess than just everyday evil Britch?

I love when Frisco goes in dad mode and wn he warns the Brit u wouldn’t wanna mess with him.

Oh I loved it.. worked well.. just something Frisco would do and suited her great. LOVED his reaction upon meeting Spinelli too. Funny!!

I thought the scene with Frisco and Spinneli was funny too. Hope Britt and Frisco have more confrontation scenes.

Wishing her a speedy recovery. Happy to have on screen with or without crutches. I love evil Britt!

Sorry to hear about her realife injury. But as for Britch, i hope Frisco had something to do with it. But if on crutches or on her broomstick shes the same old Britch who i hope cant get any worse. Hopefully RC will give her a softer side because if they dont i predict the character will be killed off in a who killed the Wicked Britch plotline.

And if they do kill her off, maybe Frisco will think Maxi did it, and take the blame for it. That way if Jack Wagner doesnt stay with GH fulltime his character of Frisco could be sent to prison for Britches death. Id rather see him do something noble like this for Maxi instead of having Frisco abandon her again. This way JW could at least come back in the future for more guest appearances.

Works for me… they could have put her in a hospital bed in traction and it would be better! Then maybe someone could mix up the medication and… just kidding… maybe…

This is kind of old news.

The real sad thing is that she had to bow out of her commitment to Habitat for Humanity with her fellow co-stars.

Oh u are right on the button Michael he reminded of me of when Todd met Spinelli. I wish Jack Wagner would have scenes with Roger Howarth

i love Brit she’s a fun villian, and i hope GH keeps her on for a long time, i hate when fans compare her to lisa niles, and are already waiting for her to go all fatal attraction. that has already been done so hopefully gh wont repeat this plotline . GH needs villians too and not all of them have to be psychos. Brit is beautifull, sure she’s not nice and is selfish but theres got to be more to her.. So i plead to GH please don’t turn her into a stereotypical psycho or into lisa 2.0.

I’m with you! I love Britt the Bitch!!
she plays the part well and I wanna slap her through the wall, and that means she is great!!!
A soap isn’t worth a nickle with a Queen Bitch..

((heh Y&R doesn’t have a Queen Bitch nor a Hardcore Villain; it’s very bland ..)

I did write that they should soften her character because i do hope they keep her around. I did ask if she was going to be related to Lisa because when Patrick mention Lisas name the camera briefly focused on Brit and her reaction hinted a Lisa connection. I wouldnt care if they were related and Brits original intent was to harm Patrick blaming him for Lisas death then fell in love with him instead but not turn out to just be another Lisa because we’ve already been there. I feel Brit would have great chemistry with A.J. but then Elizabeth, who was long overdue 4 a storyline, was paired with him.

I’m really glad this happened to her. ( Britt, not the actress.) She’s evil and needs bad things to happen to her for a change.

I hate the character. Nothing against the actress…..but it makes me wonder what Carlivati is doing to my once favorite show. Perhaps Britt can take one of her crutches and knock some sense into the head writer…..before he has a full on “Pratt” effect on GH.

The rumors I have heard seem to indicate there will be a reason for why she is so evil and that the actress would really like for her softer side to come out.

It sounds to me like she is here to stay and that her character most likely will go through a transformation.

Poor her hope she gets better. Crutches make her all the less threatening like those guys in Home Alone.

Just like someone said,they need a bitch on the show,and so go for it. The girl certainly is beautiful and I may not root for her exactly but,she certainly has a place on the show. Lisa was just plain evil. she needed to go.
She can always trip someone with her crutches.?

I absolutely cannot stand Britt. She is one of the worst actresses the show has seen in a long time. I admit her storyline is juvenile but she is completely unconvincing as a “doctor” and acts like it’s high school. I was very sorry to hear they put her on contract and hope that arrangement is short-lived.

If Nicholas is staying , he and Britt would be great together. They both have horrible family backgrounds. Nick would understand her better than anyone. He has the ability to reveal the real Britt. Hope she not reLly pregnant Love Sabrina with Payrick !!!!!

Daytime Emmy Lead Actress Nominee Luncheon; The Tradition Continues

On Sunday, it was Mishael Morgan’s (Amanda Sinclair, The Young and the Restless) turn to host the annual Lead Actress nominee luncheon, for this year’s talented woman who are going for gold at the upcoming 50th annual Daytime Emmy Awards on Friday night, December 15th on CBS.

Morgan took home the Daytime Emmy in this category in 2022 becoming the first Black actress in the now 50-year history to ever win it. In a tradition that was started by four-time Daytime Emmy winner Susan Flannery (Ex-Stephanie, The Bold and the Beautiful), the winning actress from the previous year has to pick up the tab, choose a restaurant and host a fun afternoon gathering for this year’s crop of nominees.

Attending the festivities were 2023 Lead Actress nominees: Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea, The Young and the Restless), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis, The Young and the Restless), Sharon Case (Sharon, The Young and the Restless) Finola Hughes (Anna, General Hospital), and Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy, The Bold and the Beautiful).

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom Shares Heartfelt Message to Mark His 30-Year Anniversary as Dr. Kevin Collins

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 30 years since back on December 3rd, 1993, when General Hospital viewers got the shock of their lives as the ABC soap opera introduced the psychiatrist twin brother of serial killer, Ryan Chamberlain, in the form of Dr. Kevin Collins.

For soap fans that meant we got to see even more of one of the finest actors ever to appear in the genre in Jon Lindstrom. The talented actor started on GH a year and half earlier in June of 1992 as Ryan.

Fast-forward to 2023 and Lindstrom is in the running for this year’s Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series when the 50th annual Daytime Emmy Awards are given out in less than two weeks on Friday night, December 15th on CBS. Could an Emmy on his 30th year playing Kevin and Ryan be in the cards? Stay tuned.

It has been well-documented that former GH creatives Wendy Riche (ex-EP), Claire Labine (ex-head writer) and Michelle Val Jean (ex-writer) were all instrumental in keeping Jon in Port Charles with a second role as Kevin, when he could have headed to As the World Turns at the time to play the role of Damian Grimaldi, that eventually went to Paolo Seganti.

Taking to his Instagram on Sunday to acknowledge this special milestone, Jon shared via video message, “I woke up this morning to see that today December 3rd, marks 30 years since I debuted as Dr. Kevin Collins on General Hospital. I knew that it had been a long time, but 30 years since the doppelgänger to Dr. Ryan Chamberlain was introduced. It really is remarkable. It’s been a great ride, a great run. it’s like an entire career right there. I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. It’s just been great.”

Lindstrom paid tribute to those who helped create Kevin, expressing, “I have a lot of people to thank about that, let alone people like Wendy Riche and the brass at ABC at the time … Claire Labine who was writing the show back, but Michelle Val Jean was really was the one who I had the pleasure of working with to develop and bring to life Kevin Collins. She’s still a great friend today. So, there’s been a lot of blessings around this for me, and don’t think, I don’t know it. I pretty much drop to my knees every day in gratitude. Thank you world for supporting Dr. Kevin Collins and Ryan Chamberlain, for that matter. I’ll do it as long as they’ll have me.”

Accompanying his video, Jon wrote: “So grateful today for my 30 years of ‘Kevin Collins’ (and ‘Ryan Chamberlain’) on General Hospital, and for the wonderful journey my life has been, for my friends, my the family and incredible opportunities I’ve had. Hope you all have much to be grateful for.”

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Are You For or Against Kristina Being the Surrogate for TJ & Molly’s Baby Knowing the Storyline Implications Down the Road?

As many GH viewers have predicted, things have swung back around to Kristina (Kate Mansi) seemingly being the most viable option in Molly’s (Kristen Vaganos) mind to carry her and TJ’s (Tajh Bellow) baby as their surrogate.

If you recall, Kristina offered a few months back and was shut down by Molly, and then TJ, as the couple then went looking through agencies to find a surrogate to carry their baby to term. The surrogate they found, Andrea, told TJ she lost the baby in a miscarriage, which was confirmed by a doctor at Mercy Hospital, and she won’t go through trying to have a baby again. Leaving the couple devastated. But, is her story suspicious?

Last week on General Hospital, Molly was overwhelmed when having to look through a file to start the process of finding a surrogate and identifying the right candidate all over again and it brought her to tears. Kristina found her in the park, and that led the two to have a heart-to-heart conversation. While the two sisters have come to an agreement, now it comes to convincing TJ that this is the right move.


However, fans of the show can see how complex this will be for everyone down the line. If Kristina’s relationship with Blaze (Jacqueline Grace Lopez) moves further down the line, will she be so willing to give her sister the baby? Could there be an ugly court battle for the little one between two moms vs. TJ and Molly?  Will Kristina having their child, bring TJ and Kristina actually closer together, and cause rifts in Molly’s relationship with her man and her sister? What does the long-running soap opera have in store in the storyline by making Kristina the ultimate surrogate? Or, could Kristina lose the baby, only to find out that Andrea, the original surrogate has TJ and Molly’s child? So many possibilities.

Soap Opera Digest spoke to Kristen Vaganos on where Molly’s head is at with the situation. Vaganos shared, “I think there’s a little bit of desperation there, wanting to take a route that might be more trustworthy. (Surrogacy is) such a hard process to put trust and hope into because anything can happen. And Molly is a control freak! She wants to control as much as she can, so having a relative involved is, I think, comforting in a way.”

In terms of how Molly will re-approach TJ with Kristina being the prospective surrogate, Vaganos added, “Molly knows that it’s going to be an uphill battle, convincing him. Kristina’s track record with TJ is what it is. But it’s another leap of faith that Molly wants to take, and she just wants TJ to be on board with her. Plus, I think that TJ will really trust Molly’s opinion because Molly knows her better than anybody, and Molly would be the first person to doubt Kristina, to make sure to double-check her work. So if Molly says that she really feels strongly about this and thinks it’s the right decision, I think that’ll go a long way. I think TJ will take that to heart. But unless he’s on board with it, too, it’s a nonstarter.”

So, how do you see this playing out and what do you want to see? Are you in favor of Kristina being the surrogate for Molly and TJ’s baby? Are you for or against it, and what it could mean for long-term story implications? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
