GH's Nancy Lee Grahn on Her Boobs, Monaco & Shawn/Alexis!

In one of the funniest interviews we have read and laughed out loud over, General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) chatted with TV Guide about her noticeably larger breasts, being the cheerleader of her on-screen daughter, Kelly Monaco (as Monaco attempts to win the Mirror Ball Trophy on Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars) and trying to rationalize the out of the blue Shawn and Alexis attraction on GH! And of course, there are some comments on politics and Sarah Palin, that are not to be missed!  Here are few excerpts!

Nancy on why it appears the wardrobe department at GH is accentuating her breasts of late: “They’re not! Here’s the other problem: I can’t stand wearing anything that covers my upper chest because it makes me feel like I’m suffocating. I must have been Anne Boleyn in a past life. I’ve always been this way but it’s only obvious now because my boobs have suddenly grown to the size of twin blimps and now they pop out. It’s also more noticeable because I like to move around a lot when I act.  I’m always leaning over someone in a scene and they’re like, ‘God, stand up straight, will ya! Nobody can concentrate!”‘

Nancy on why she is always in the audience at every taping of DWTS All-Stars rooting on Kelly Monaco:  “Oh, my God! I need an intervention! I can’t stop going to the tapings. Remember Miss Miller, the old gal who used to always sit in the audience of The Merv Griffin Show? I’m her. What the hell am I thinking? I’m so carried away playing Kelly’s mom on GH that I think I’m her mom in real life. I’m the Jewish mother she never had! She’s got a lot of balls for a pint-sized little thing. Sometimes I’ll go get her lunch on the GH set. The other day, as a joke, I threw a head of lettuce into her dressing room and said, ‘This is for today and tomorrow!’ I’m really, really impressed with how hard she’s working because this show is serious s–t! Just brutal! Between the angina I get being there to root for Kelly and the angina I have over this presidential election, I am so headed for the emergency room!”

Nancy on the arbitrary pairing of Shawn and Alexis:  “I love working with Sean Blakemore (Shawn). I think he’s very cool. His character needs to be more dimensionalized, but I’m all for putting Shawn and Alexis together. Frank and Ron Carlivati know that I need to have a relationship on the show. Maybe they’re just experimenting, seeing what works, what doesn’t. It’d be good to start over with Alexis and Shawn and approach this thing again. Why are the two of them together? What’s behind the attraction? I don’t think they even know each other. They were making out in that scene because the show wanted a big moment after the boat exploded. We were shooting at the end of a long day on location on the docks in Long Beach and Frank Valentini came running at me and said, ‘If we don’t get this scene shot in 60 seconds, we’re going into overtime and it’s going to cost us $20,000! So shut up and shoot it! Just do it!” (Laughs) I didn’t have time to stand there and discuss my motivation.”‘

OK, so what do you think of Shawn and Alexis together? Nancy rooting on Kelly Monaco each week in-person on DWTS?  We think it’s a tremendous show of support!  And, how funny Grahn is?  Weigh-in!

I have loved the character of Alexis since she first appeared on the show. Her scenes with Stefan were superb and intense. Then we got to see her softer side when she gave in to Sonny’s charms. And as a mom, Nancy Lee adds just the right amount of neurosis to make her seem so realistic as the Davis Girls’ Mom. I hope Cartini keep her around for a long time! And what a classy thing she does by cheeering for Kelly Monaco each week. Sounds like she’s a loyal friend and a great actress!

Loved that interview. I have a love/hate “relationship” with NLG…we have very different politics and I hate when she’s on her band wagon acting like the know-it-all of everything political, but I love her as an actress (most of the time.)

I love Nancy Lee Grahn. She’s very blunt her own ways and I love that. However, the Alexis/Shawn pairing does not work, nor does Shawn on the series. Ditch him and TJ and put Alexis/Mac back together!

I also wanted to add while I was on the TV Guide website reading the entire interview – very good, by the way, there is a link to The Street that has the top 10 shows that Netflix should revive (since they are doing it for ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT). All of you AMC and OLTL fans should be happy that AMC and OLTL are on there together on page 8.

When i think of NLG… I think of her superb work… on the beloved Santa Barbara… I will always think of that show as a who’s who… of Daytime… History. Uber Talent…. I simply adore her as the single mother of 3 daughters… she’s so good with all three of them… my favorite scenes are with her and Molly… Molly reads Alexis the riot act… it’s my opinion… that we’ll never really see Alexis with “anyone”… she’s too pent up… miss anxiety….”frigid”… with men at least… for all the few choices GH has to offer THE WOMEN… it’s Mac I… Read more »

NLG is so hella cool, funny and she keeps it real. Her character as Alexis is always evolving and I love this new relationship with Shawn. Can”t want to see more scenes with them.

Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’ Acquired by Fox in the U.S.

Great news for fans of former GH star Vinessa Antoine (Ex-Jordan).  The Canadian legal drama, Diggstown, in which she stars has found an American broadcasting home via news today that Fox has acquired the series.

Fox has picked up twelve episodes for seasons one and two of the drama.

In Diggstown, Antoine stars as Marcie Diggs, a star corporate lawyer who reconsiders her priorities and moves to work in a legal-aid office after her beloved aunt takes her own life following the pressures of a malicious prosecution.

 

The series explores issues of social injustice among other topical matters and universal themes. The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics, and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice. They work directly in the community to find justice for their varied clients. Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.

Deadline broke the news of the acquisition, which will help the network during the Covid-19 pandemic and production shutdowns, to have programming ready to go while other shows continue to get up and running.

No word yet on when Fox might air Diggstown in its primetime line-up.

So, excited to see Vinessa in the legal drama when the show airs on Fox? Comment below.

When Martin Met Jackie (AKA All My Children’s Tad and Jenny) on General Hospital

If you caught Monday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC daytime drama snuck in a ‘wink-wink nudge-nudge’ to viewers of the once dominant ABC daytime soap opera line-up.

Since Kim Delaney was announced as coming to GH to take on the role of ace investigative journalist, Jackie Templeton, longtime All My Children viewers noted that she at some point could be reunited with her former All My Children TV brother, Michael E. Knight, because they are both now in Port Charles.

The one time Tad and Jenny Gardner of Pine Valley got re-acquainted on yesterday’s episode when Martin interrupted a conversation between Jackie and her son, Chase (Josh Swickard).  When he did, Jackie looks at Martin and says, “Do I know you?”   She looks as though she is trying to place exactly where she knows that face from, and from there the two eventually share their first one-on-one scenes as their new soap alter-egos.

In the moment, Martin wants Jackie to investigate what happened to his mother, Florence, and reveals to Jackie that his bio-brother is Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober), which perks up Jackie to probably do some digging.

For many, it was great to see Michael and Kim together again, and here’s hoping GH can capitalize on it in future scenes.

So did you enjoy the nod to All My Children history on yesterday’s GH between Jackie and Martin aka Jenny and Tad? Comment below.

General Hospital to Incorporate In-Story ‘GMA3: What You Need to Know’ Jackie Templeton & Sasha Gilmore Interview

In a crossover of sorts, on the upcoming, Wednesday, January 27 episode of General Hospital, the daytime drama series will bring the characters of Jackie Templeton (Kim Delaney) and Sasha Gilmore (Sofia Mattsson) to its true lead-in, GMA3: What You Need to Know, but in a fictitious way for a revealing and explosive interview.

The scene is set in the Metro Court in Port Charles, and Jackie, the ace reporter and journalist has some tough questions for Sasha during their sit-down interview.  The in-story tie-in helps promote both shows in the ABC afternoon line-up.

Soap Opera Digest, who first brought the news of the mash-up in their latest issue, revealed that the moment is “being played as a remote segment for the ABC news and lifestyle program.”

However, there will be no one from GMA3 appearing on the Wednesday episode.

So what do you think will happen during the Jackie/Sasha sit-down? Comment below.
