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 »

Kelly Thiebaud is now set to reprise her role of Eva Vasquez, on ABC’s primetime drama, Station 19 and thus the Daytime Emmy winner will exit her role as Dr. Britt Westbourne on General Hospital.

According to Deadline, Thiebaud will be part of the cast for the series 6th season, which premieres on October 6th.

Previously, Kelly appeared on the show’s 3rd season when in story, as the widow of firefighter Rigo Vasquez (Rigo Sanchez), she had an affair with her husband’s colleague Jack Gibson (Grey Damon) that resulted in total chaos.

In a tease for Thiebaud’s return, ABC shared, “Misery loves company and Eva finds solace with someone from her past.”

Kelly has played GH’s Britt on and off since 2012. She won her first Daytime Emmy this past June for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her performance.

Look for Kelly to exit her GH role in November, while a rep for the soap shared that the actress will be leaving by year’s end.

What do you think of Kelly going to Station 19 and departing General Hospital? How do you think GH will deal with her exit? Will tragedy befall Britt with her living with Huntington’s Disease? Will she be written-off the canvas, leaving the door open for her return?

GH’s Brook Kerr and Tabyana Ali Talk On: Trina’s Trial, Spencer and Rory, And Their On-Screen Mother/Daughter Relationship

Currently, General Hospital fans are awaiting the verdict in Trina’s trial and just what lengths her mother will go to in order to secure her freedom! With the story playing out on-air, Michael Farman chatted in a new virtual interview with the two women central to the story; Brook Kerr (Portia) and Tabyana Ali (Trina).

As viewers know, Trina was set-up by Esme Prince (Avery Pohl), to make it appear that she taped her best friends, Cameron (William Lipton) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) having sex, and then posted the video from her phone, so it went viral.

During the conversation for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Tabyana and Brook weigh-in on what’s gone down at the trial including; how Spencer Cassadine came forward with an alibi for Trina, plus how Portia may put her medical career at risk if she brings Esme’s partner in crime, Oz, out of his coma to get the evidence they need to point the finger on Esme.

 

In addition, Tabyana and Brook share their thoughts on the men in Trina’s life: Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Rory Cabrera (Michael Blake Kruse), and how the #Sprina has a life of its own on social media.

Brook also shares dishes on Portia’s romantic relationship with Curtis (Donnell Turner), plus the recent noteworthy scenes between Portia and Stella (Vernee Watson), where GH shed light on a mother’s concern; that racial injustice could factor in to the jury’s decision in Trina’s case.

Tabyana also discusses working alongside GH co-stars, Maura West (Ava) and Carolyn Hennesy (Diane), and what it was like taking over the role of Trina from popular fan favorite, Sydney Mikayla.

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

Share your congratulations to Kin on his 45th anniversary in the comment section, and then let us know what has been your favorite Scott Baldwin scene through the years. 

But first, in case you missed it, check out our interview last year with Kin on the Michael Fairman Channel below.
