GH's Kimberly McCullough Reveals 2015 Had Its Share Of Personal Heartbreaks, But Was Glad To Have The Chance To Wrap-up Scrubs Story

General Hospital’s beloved Kimberly McCullough (Robin Scorpio Drake) took to her website for a blog post encapsulating the ups and down of her life in 2015.  The blog touched upon her career including: directing an episode of Pretty Little Liars, filming her passion project Hey Day, and returning to General Hospital, plus some very personal and emotional setbacks.

The post entitled:  “2015 Year End Wrap Up (The Discovery of DJ Bellum and other fun facts about being an adult” is written in McCullough’s own style and very personal account.  In it, her fans learned that she suspected she may have a brain tumor, but after an MRI and diagnosis it was revealed to be an arachnoid cyst.  After that scare, McCullough in the summer found out she was pregnant and was having a little girl.  However, tragically 22 weeks into the pregnancy she miscarried.

She shared: “My heart was so full and then it broke. I had lost my baby girl. It was too much. I didn’t need to learn this lesson. I wasn’t interested. But I wasn’t in control. These things happen and no, I don’t believe they happen ‘for a reason.’ I’m still processing, still healing, but anyone who has gone through it knows, losing a baby at 22 weeks is tragic. One thing I am proud of however was that I allowed myself to be happy and to relish the moment. I sat in all that goodness and I can recall those feelings (when I’m having different ones) and hope that it can be like that again.”   McCullough also saw this past year the death of her beloved dog, Melba.

Kimberly also shared her thoughts on wrapping-up the year helping send off Jason Thompson (Patrick) on GH, relating her thoughts alongside a touching photo of Jason and their on-screen daughter, Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Brooklyn) from Thompson’s last day on the GH set where he received a cake.  Kimberly added:  “I also got to spend time with my General Hospital family and see my good friend Jason Thompson off, hopefully to greener pastures.  I’m really proud of the work we did, not just this go around but over the last ten years. I made a great friend (JT), I gained a TV Daughter (the most precious soul on the planet) and got to tell an important and at times, really fun story.”

One of the more exciting things that was noted in her post was McCullough plans on sharing Hey Day with the world in 2016.   A cast member of Hey Day happens to be  non other than McCullough’s on-screen mom, Finola Hughes (Anna)!

To say that this account did not move us to tears, is an understatement.  I am sure, like all of you, we only want the best for Kimberly.  We love her, and after all, she has meant so much to all of us for decades.  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

I had read the blog before you posted it here, Michael. Her story is devastating, and also brought me to tears. But I was also inspired. KMc is a phenomenal young woman of grace, intelligence, sensitivity, strength, courage. All of these qualities come through in her portrayal of Robin, which is why I have loved this character for 30 years. The internet is often a cruel place. I have read — even on this site — nasty comments about KMc’s weight, theories that she has held GH “hostage” and, thus, so ruined storylines, that she lost her acting talent… Just… Read more »

I can certainly relate, Tristan. Some women cave after losing a child….miscarriage or death. As Kimberly, I straightened by shoulders…..gathered strength because I had to, in order to survive. That is not to say, however, that the pain is buried. Forever in my heart!!!!

Well said Tristan, I couldn’t have said it better. You hit it on the nail with your description of Kimberly as a woman of grace, intelligence, sensitivity, strength and courage which translates on screen in her portrayal of Robin. Her performance on the bridge with Billy (Jason) was one of my favorites in any of the performances of this past year. I’ve watched it a handful of times and each time I shed some tears.

Kimberly is truly a daytime and General Hospital treasure. I wish her love, peace, good health & happiness in this new year and beyond.

Kim, I wish I could give you a big hug. Sharing your story helps you through this terrible journey and it will help others experiencing such a loss. I also went through a ectopic and miscarriage at 39 and it just took me to my knees. Never thought it would happen to me and already had 3 beautiful, healthy children, and was not planning either pregnancy but it hurt just so much I couldn’t wrap my head around it for quite a while. I slumped into a depression and slowly came out the other side. Don’t let anyone tell you… Read more »

Sharing her life’s intimate and painful experiences is extremely courageous on
her part. Kim is not only helping herself heal… But also helping others in similar
circumstances. Blessings for the future…

I love Kimberly. Have been watching her grow up before my eyes. At times her character annoyed me but that’s neither her nor there about how much I love her. She had a very rough year. Losing a baby and a fur baby can be devastating one at a time. But both. Oh my heart just breaks for her. Then on top of that the brain tumor scare. I hope 2016 brings her nothing but good things for her personally and professionally. I just wish the haters would back off on the comments about her appearance. When you’re not feeling… Read more »

I read her blog and was very saddened to hear about the loss of her baby. How horrible for her, not to mention the loss of her dog and the cyst she found. I’m glad she found a new friend (dog) and I hope this year is better for her.

I did find it tacky that SOD posted one portion of her blog “Actress miscarries” thought that was pretty insensitive.

Wishing her well.

I love Kim and always have because one, she grew up on the show and two, she has so much history and can act. What I like most about her is her is she isnt afraid to step out of her comfort zone. She could have remained on GH full time and continued to act but she followed her dreams and continues to do so by directing. Some people would knock her for not being around. Why? She is young and has dreams, let her go! Its not her fault that writers have written silly stories about her absence from… Read more »

Me too! They are wonderful people. They should bottle their abilities and sell them to others! I lost my dad years ago and all though I’ve moved on, it took me a while, for sure. I cannot imagine losing a child!

No matter how frustrated some viewers have grown with the character of Robin’s comings and goings, there can be no question that her portrayer, Kimberly McCullough, whom we have seen blossom into adulthood before our eyes, is a multi-talented, courageous creative artist worthy of respect and admiration.

I am so sorry for the year Kim has had. At the same time I’m gratified that she feels she has an “extended family” can share her feelings and losses with who have known her as Robin since she was a young girl. Kim’s 2015 year certainly didn’t show in her last appearance on GH, but I did sense something deeper about her that’s not just acting…particularly with Jason/Billy on the bridge.

I have been a fan ever since you first appeared on GH. You were an amazing actress even when you were a young child – you were and are so believable and natural. I am so sorry that 2015 has been such a difficult year for you and wish you good health and happiness in 2016 and beyond.

Kimberly I to have lost two children in my lifetime’ one a little girl that I carried for three months and miscarried a week before Christmas and a little boy that I carried for 8 months and lost to Potters Syndrome. But I was determined to keep trying and as a result I became the proud mother of two beautiful and handsome children ‘ a girl and a boy, ….fast forward its been 35 years now and they are both today full grown and healthy adults. So hang in there God in his infinite wisdom, has a way of giving… Read more »

Heartbreaking–but I have the sense that Kimberly has weathered other storms and is a very strong, determined woman. I hope this new year brings her all good things. Kimberly, you are in my thoughts.

She had a rough year.

She started a new relationship in 2015 and became pregnant (presumably by this guy) the same year. Not the best way to bring a child into the world.

I hope she has a nice 2016.

Her personal story is truly heartbreaking. I’ve always admired KMC as an actress and young woman trying to live her best life! I have always watched her career and check up in her. On a separate note glad see the posters her are supporting KMC and not still bashing Robin. It always amazing when people don’t see that one is very real and the other is make believe! I’m sending much love and prayers for what ever you want for 2016! A lot of us have watched from that adorable 6 year with the missing tooth. Her kidnapping reunion with… Read more »

I am so sorry for the bad year Kimberly has had. I pray and hope her 2016 will be blessed with wonderful events and memories. I can’t imagine losing a child of any kind and would probably not recover from that.

Take care of yourself, enjoy your life and please know your fans are 100% behind (or beside) you forever. Love you and please come back to GH on occasion for a visit?

General Hospital’s Halloween Week Promo Touts Wicked Surprises

Looks like everyone will be on edge this week as Halloween comes to Port Charles.  In the newly-released ABC promo for General Hospital, it reveals that this spooky week of episodes will be a rollercoaster ride, featuring wicked surprises, and killer costumes.

After Epiphany (Sonya Eddy) scolds Franco (Roger Howarth) for having his hand in the candy jar, Anna (Finola Hughes) or is it? … is donning a black witches hat. Jackie (Kim Delaney) is seen opening her door, juxtaposed with Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) saying “trick or treat”. But, is he actually at the door of someone else?

Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) asks Ava (Maura West), “Darling, what are you holding behind your back?” That is revealed to be a knife, but is it Ava who truly has the knife?

 

Meanwhile, Jason (Steve Burton) is looking around in the dark.  Elsewhere, Peter is jumpy.  So much so that Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) utters, “Looks like you’ve seen a ghost.”

Add all that to last Friday’s episode of GH where Carly(Laura Wright) thinks she saw Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) hand come out of her grave and attack her! Is Nelle (Chloe Lanier) going to be proven to be alive? And if so, will she pop up on Halloween and scare the hell out of Carly?

Watch the promo below, then let us know what you think will happen this week on General Hospital via the comment section.
