General Hospital’s, Leslie Charleson (Monica) addressed on her facebook page, the news that have had so many fans in an uproar, that she had been bumped to recurring status, and taken off contract from the ABC series.  The veteran actress stated she was hoping to address the fans first before the news leaked out.  Here is what the phenomenal and beloved Charleson had to say below.

Charleson: “I was under the impression that the announcement of my contract status was  not going to be released by Soaps In Depth Magazine until the September issue and that would give me the time to tell you myself what was going on.  I did not want you to find out on the internet. Unfortunately, that did not happen and yes, it is… true. I am officially off contract.  I have had the best relationships with you, the fans and I would’ve never had that without “Monica.” There is nothing that I cherish more than the experiences and memories I have had and the special friends that I have made  over the years, both on the show and off. I can’t say enough about how much you all mean to me.  Thank you for your continued support, Leslie.”

Once again, Leslie show us how truly a classic lady she is. All the best to her, and hopefully better offers will come her way. “One Life To Live” may need a new “chief of staff” for the hospital now that Dorian is mayor!

General Hospital is a mess! Monica is so important to the show. She is a Quartermaine and the grandmother of Michaell, which no one seems to remember! She is also Jason’s mother and there is still a bond between them. Less Sonny and his harem and more Quartermaines and other characters!

Leslie, I will have many fond memories of my 18 years working with you on GH. You brought forth smiles and tears during so many emotional scenes these past years. I will never forget you trying all morning to remember the long and complex medical words I wrote for you to say. Always perfectly when the cameras rolled. I miss you, all my best!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
