GH's Nancy Lee Grahn Breaks Silence On Social Media With Special Message!

Photo Credit: Kathy Hutchins

Ever since the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards, General Hospital fans and those of Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis), have not heard a peep out of the Daytime Emmy Award winning actress on social media.  Following the now unfortunate Twitter firestorm that put Nancy at the epicenter of a mainstream media frenzy for her comments/tweets on How to Get Away with Murder’s Viola Davis Lead Actress win acceptance speech, she took some time away to assess what she tweeted and the reaction she got in return.

On Sunday, Nancy took to her official facebook page with the following message to her friends and fans:  “Dear friends,  if you’ve been looking for me on milk cartons, under rocks, or hiding out with Waldo, you wouldn’t have found me. I may have been absent here, but I’ve been fully present, and alert in my life. With the internet off, I’ve been reflecting, reading, writing, having enlightening discourse, and extraordinary meetings with people I never thought I’d have the honor to meet, let alone converse with. My silence in the media was self imposed and correct. I can’t tweet and listen at the same time. Being quiet and listening has allowed me to absorb meaningful lessons and gain insights that continue to have immeasurable value to me.  To be sure, what you believe you know about me has remained to be so. In fact, my commitment to equal rights, fairness, and justice for the disenfranchised has grown even stronger.

My intention now is to continue to stay tapped in, tuned in, and turned on to learning more. As these lessons unfold with greater clarity, I will humbly and happily share them with you, as I allow myself and my experiences to be used for greater understanding and greater good. I’m excited about what’s to come.

In the meantime, while I’m quite serious about my purpose right now, my sense of humor is alive and well. I will continue to find the funny in funny things, celebrate my beloved General Hospital, and rant about policy and issues that dehumanize others, as well a media that does the same. My goal, and it is a lofty one, is to try not to be snarky, mean spirited, or pile on any individual. Not even reality stars, bureaucrats, or politicians. They are all, after all, human beings.

As a work in progress, who hopes to continually change for the better, I want to thank my supporters and my critics, as evolving is impossible without both.  Now let’s go have some fun this week. Stay tuned.  xoxo, Me”

What do you think of Nancy’s message on facebook?  Do you come to understand that she reflected on her actions, but still maintains she will fight for the disenfranchised, equal rights, and speak her mind, while perhaps, as she says “evolving” in the way she goes about it?  Share your thoughts on Nancy’s post in the comment section below!

Love Nancy but she needs to do more than take a 30-day break from Facebook and Twitter. She needs to get help for her drinking problem.

I know. I was once in her place and haven’t had a drop of liquor in three years and life is so much better without it.

Lol…because an outspoken, intelligent woman speaks her mind, perhaps without fear of repercussion because she believes in what she’s saying…she has a problem with alcohol? Did she slur her written words?

How about tone down your extreme liberal views. It affects fans opinions & therefore viewership of GH & your paycheck.

@Chris…there are plenty of actors, musicians, politicians who say things to piss someone off. Hasn’t ended their careers or lowered their record sales. I doubt Nancy’s views will effect GH. A spud if anyone was ridiculous enough to blow what she said out of proportion…that! S their problem. He or she needs to sit back, take a look at what the woman meant…and/or accept her apologies for some particulars which came out in a hasty, unfortunate way, and by that I mean the part about whether Viola Davis had ever faced rejection in her career due to race. No one know that but thane actress herself. Other than that, I’m sorry for the backlash Nancy had to take…

Sue K

I can keep this short, which she should do in making an apology, if she ever does. This message is full of self. Nothing new here, move along.

Shay

Exactly, Sue K. Just more of the usual self-important, self-indulgent psychobabble we’ve come to expect from NLG.

k/kay
k/kay

Darlings she just can’t stay out of the sewer called Twitter .

Shay
Shay

This is true, k/kay! It’s like some sort of sick obsession or addiction. Whilst I do occasionally read a few select intelligent individuals’ tweets, I generally fail to see the point of this particular all-encompassing phenomenon. As Cate Blanchett recently so succinctly put it, “I cannot for the life of me work out why adults are participating in that $#!+. ” Perhaps the term “adults” is the operative word……since there appears to be precious little mature activity going on there most of the time.

Rebecca1

Sue K. To many of us Nancy shouldn’t have apologized at all, except maybe to Viola Davis for assuming what she did or didn’t experience in her own career, before she became the mega star, with many awards and recognition, that she is. Other than that, I got what Nancy was saying and agreed with her.

Adam
Adam

She was all wrong for her tweet and now she’s trying to make up for it , too late, I don’t care what she has to say now. The best thing to do is not say anything but too many have to tweet mess every time then regret it.

Just My Opinion
Just My Opinion

Great PR but some things can’t be unsaid. Anyone with common sense would have known better than to post the rant she did.

I admit she is a great actress and enjoyed her on GH but after the comments she made every time she’s on screen I’m distracted by the reminder of her ignorant and insensitive post.

With the current bloated cast I’d be fine if ABC decided their wasn’t room on the canvas for her.

Mister Media

I really like and respect Nancy as a person and as a performer. I know her heart is in the right place. Based on her message, I think she has adopted a very common mindset in this age of social media, and that is: nothing is a real or valuable experience until you share it on the internet. It is indeed possible to fight for equal rights, fairness and justice without sharing or advertising one’s efforts. Mother Theresa might have had less time to perform good works if she was concerned about posting them on social media as part of the experience. I understand that Nancy might find it useful to use her celebrity to rally fans and supporters to her causes and that’s a valid use of the medium. However I don’t thing that the lessons one learns necessarily need to be happily and humble shared with the rest of the world, and may indeed even be more valuable if they are not. The best way to change the world is to change yourself and inspire those around you, in your immediate sphere. The discourse and proselytizing by celebrities which takes place on the internet mainly amounts to little and can sometimes be treacherous and divisive, as Nancy has learned. Finally, I am not unaware of the irony of sharing this view on an internet forum. Long live GH!

No, she still doesn’t get it. I heard nary an apology in there only self-promotion and self-serving manipulation. What is so hard with just saying,” I am sorry”?
How bout this, Nancy? “I screwed up and utilized a startlingly lack of tone deafness and sensitivity. Moreover, I demonstrated an abject case of jealousy due to the fact that I relegated to playing an intelligent and educated woman of certain age who is stuck in arrested development, I let my bitterness over take my judgement and sense of righteousness in a heated moment, and for that, I am very sorry.”
If you need a ghost writer, come find me, Nancy.

Shay

You nailed it, Harry!!!! As for NLG….way too little, waaaaay tooooo late!

I don’t get it, you are mad that she took so long to apologize, but yet you don’t plan to accept her apology anyway? Every now and then people like you need to step down from that high horse and breath some air down here.

Stefaniem76, she didn’t actually apologize.

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

Stefaniem76…agree. Not only that, but as I’ve said on this page and previous posts, I don’t think she owed anyone an apology…other than to Viola Davis for commenting on whether or not Viola had ever faced rejection based on race. .,.Love Nancy and her views and what her intended message was really about.

That was a very nice & heartfelt message from Nancy. I adore her & love that she speaks her mind. Looking forward to her return to Twitter.

I agree with you totally. NLG is one person that has put a smile on my face for more years than I’d like to admit. So so happy to see her back.

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

Agree with you both. Although I feel bad she was bullied into saying anything. Ironic that a woman who seems to always stand up for the underdog got hit so hard from many of the people she’s rallied for. Apology to Viola on a personal note for her assumptions about her was all that was needed. Love Nancy…love Alexis…

NLG went to the positive and was very honest about what she has learned and the steps she has taken to change. I enjoy her tweets, humor, performance, and determination to put her fame to use for the greater good.
Some of the criticism here in the comments is the exact opposite of what she is going to try to do.
How ironic.
jmo Labels and intolerance by fans who judge is useless.
Welcome back Nancy.

I see all this bashing of Nancy. Sorry I also read the tweet and saw nothing wrong with it. She’s a human with feelings. I cried and was so in suppport of Viola….Good for her speech as well.

I love Nancy Lee Grahn. I love her candor and honesty and her way of trying to appease those who will never be appeased. She said nothing wrong in her original tweet. I stand behind any one who is honest enough to be themselves…I hate people who make mountains out of molehills. Rock on NLG…you are amazing

Rebecca1

Agree, Mateo!

Steve

100% Agree Rebecca 1 And Mateo and Rebecca honestly what did she say except really going on about what Viola said which was that there wasn’t enough black strong female characters on TV. HOw can there be so much hate against Nacny who A- female. 2- White. 3- so many people commenting aren’t even Bllack. I’m not and how can any of us comment? Really did I miss something.? Go back and look at emmy tweet I did. Where does it tallk GH, or stories or anything. IT DOESN’T. Ths si truly alarming to me. Sorry but every single person commenting that bashed Nancy owes her 1 hell of an apology period unless you’re black woman working in the enterttainmenrt field. IF you’re not than shame. really.

While well written, that statement is disingenous and interestingly misplaced. The words are smooth enough to capture me into reading until the end, despite the fact that I believe NLG only feigns remorse. What she feels is regret and fear of job safety. Finally, what PR strategy is being used to have this apology posted at a different social media site? That reeks of guilt and condescension. The apology should be posted on Twitter, which is where her unraveling began.

free spirit MT
free spirit MT

posting an apology on Twitter would be redundant, because she did that already. NLG also posted this update on Twitter where the number of characters is limited. She linked to this post on Facebook from Twitter.
Go ahead and rage, label, judge all you want. but you might want to consider the facts.

Sesalee
Sesalee

What I will not do is have an argument/disparage someone for a difference of opinion. I wrote what I believe as my response to NLG’s fb post–which was linked on Twitter. NLG can work through the 140 character limit quite well and chose another option. I was careful not to attack. I have enjoyed her work on GH, however I was disappointed that the Twitter rant she unleashed and continued felt venomous and unwarranted. My opinions and response remain. This ends our discourse.

Her annoying tweets made me not like Alexis, a character I had loved for years. I had to unfollow her, but it was too late. I only see NLG when I see Alexis. I FF through all of her scenes.

I really think that it is better not to speak about politics or religion or anything controversial to people you don’t know —NLG does that regularly. She insults a lot of people a lot of time. I doubt that will change. Personally I thought it was just dumb to say Viola Davis had never faced discrimination.
the thing is no one, but especially people in the public, like politicans and actors, do not have to utter aloud every thought that penetrates their consiousness. It is really better not to…of course that does not mean giving up her own opinions or not supporting what she believes in…it does not need to be advertised. imho
Truth is NLG is not angelina jolie and most people could give a crap what she thinks (if they even care what Angelina thinks and a lot don’t) . Twitter should be used to promote her show, and career and professional things. Email to friends personal.
If I were her boss that is what I suggest to all my employees re. twitter and social media. but I know that is probably not the opiinion of most people who like to express all their thoughts on everything as if anyone cared.

Steve
Steve

Donna I respectfully disagree, the very very first tweet she did was that night and praised and backed Viola and never said she didn’t face discrimination. IO didn’t see any tweets or look out for any after that night. I even deliberately hit liked retweeted and backed her I again don’t know what followed later but I promise and guarnatee that the original tweet backed Viola Davis.

My god Nancy, you didnt murder anyone! Its over, move on! I forgot all about it. One of the fine lines in life is saying what you feel and hopefully not offending people! If its the truth, suck it up, if its a a bunch of BS, be ready to answer your critics! One of the problems in life is EVERYBODY wins and DONT offend ANYONE! Let it go people! Knuckle up! Nancy, knock some sense into the most dense mobster ever, JULIAN! ITS LEO!

I believe Nancy is sincere and this is what she could express at this time. Oh, that I could offer correction to each of you who’ve commented here for every misstep you’ve made in your lives. And, Fairman, I think you could have posted Nancy’s words w/o polling and trolling for comments.

Like Nancy, I am a liberal. However, I just cringe every time she gets on her soapbox and spouts. Actors should act!

OK– the Civil War–
The American population in 1860 was about 31 million people, about one-tenth the size it is today. If the war were fought today, the number of Civil war deaths would total 6.2 million.” wow huh!

And- the death numbers would increase figuring in the elderly, women and children.
The age of soldiers dead= 20 and 24 year olds..
More died in the Civil War then the combined deaths of the-
WWII 318,000
WWI 115,000
Vietnam 56,227
and the
Korean War
A lot of blood shed for our right to have freedom;
Freedom of speech and expression is the most basic of all freedoms granted to the citizens of America.
We might not like what is said be we love the right to express our speech.
Nancy’s right to speak in whichever direction is freedom of speech 🙂
ehhh just wanted to mention that 🙂

It seems some people only like “Freedom of speech” when it is something they want to hear. Nancy gave an opinion. If Viola was offended, let her and Nancy hash it out! Paging, e-mails and now texting, once its out there, ITS OUT THERE! Stand by your words and dont cower if someone questions what is in your heart! Like I said earlier, Nancy didnt kill anyone! Look at all the thugs in the NFL who beat women and children and are given 2nd and 3rd chances. Rock on Nancy!

I love and adore Nancy Lee Grahn! She misspoke and I for one, forgive her. She is a champion for women’s rights, equal rights, and I know 100% there is not a racist bone in her body! Her advocacy backs it up. Give her a break, she is someone who is changing the world for the better!

Katelyn MacMullen Celebrates 1 Year Anniversary On GH; Now, What Will Happen When Willow Finds Out The Truth About Wiley?

Since Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) first appeared on the General Hospital canvas as the school teacher who needed to let Charlotte’s (Scarlett Fernandez) parents (Valentin, Nina and Lulu) know of her bullying tactic sat school, the character has become quite intertwined to others in Port Charles.

We eventually learned that Willow shared a dark past with the late Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin), and even had his child, but never told him about it.  Later, Willow seem to get the attention of two young gentlemen; Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and Harrison Chase (Josh Swickard).

Photo: ABC

As of now, Chase and Willow look to be quite the happy couple.  But, what will happen when Willow learns the devastating truth- that the little boy she gave up -that is being raised by Brad (Parry Shen) and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) isn’t really hers.  In fact, her son died when Brad took Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) baby to replace the baby that died.

In a post on her Instagram, Katelyn MacMullen shared that it’s hard to believe a year has past since her debut on the ABC soap opera expressing gratitude: “It’s been a year since I’ve joined this incredible cast! I love this show so much, and every single person involved. I’m so grateful 🖤 It’s been a pretty crazy ride for Willow so far, and I’ve enjoyed every second of it 🌚 Thank you @generalhospitalabc !! 🙏 #GH #oneyearanniversary”

Chloe Lanier’s New Short Film ‘The Reveal’ Releases First Trailer

As previously reported, Chloe Lanier, the actress who plays naughty Nelle Benson on ABC’s General Hospital, has been busy at work on a special project. And while Nelle is upset having just been denied parole on the ABC soap opera, (something tells us nothing will stop her from getting out of the slammer), Lanier on the other hand has been very excited about her new short film, The Reveal.

The Reveal in which Lanier stars, co-wrote, and co-directed along with her boyfriend, Kevan McClellan also has some very familiar faces along for the ride from Port Charles and Genoa City. That’s because Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Josh Swickard (Chase, GH) are also part of the film.

The action takes place at a gender reveal party for a baby, and according to the loglines of the short: “Zoe and James are a young couple attending their new-age friends gender reveal party. As they attempt to find their place amongst the eclectic group of party guests and friends, unsung wishes and hidden resentments begin to surface within their relationship.”

Watch the trailer from Lanier below.

Then, let us know if you are intrigued to see the short film when its out via the comment section below.

WATCH: Jonathan Jackson + Enation’s New Music Video “The Days Are Evil”

Five-time Daytime Emmy winner from General Hospital, and former Nashville star, Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky, Ex-Avery) has released a new music video for the new single “The Days Are Evil” along with his band Enation.

The music video features shots of Jackson in a very dark incarnation, and the track will also appear on Jackson + Enation’s upcoming album due out later this fall, Ultraviolet Empire.

Jonathan says of the new album: “Our new album, Ultraviolet Empire, is a throwback record. It’s a record we played together live in the studio. Most of the songs are one take -just letting the band play.  It was amazing playing with our co-producer Colin Linden and capturing something so raw and visceral.”

This will be the band’s follow-up to their 2017 album  Anthems for the Apocalypse and their successful 2018 tour in Europe opening for Echo & The Bunnymen,

Check out the music video featuring Jonathan released this week below.

Then, let us know, should Lucky return to Port Charles for the Nurses’ Ball with his band and play a tune off the new album next spring? Will Jonathan come home to GH for a guest appearance? Will you be checking out the new music from him in the coming months? Comment below.
