This ought to be a fabulous read! General Hospital and two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis Davis) revealed on her Facebook page that she has been busy at work writing her memoir.

Grahn is in the middle of writing her story, and it will include, according to the actress, details of her loves and her soap opera acting life and experiences.

As daytime fans know, Nancy has appeared on One Life to Live, Santa Barbara and General Hospital.

Here is what Grahn shared in her post: “Hi everyone.  Much to tell and most of it I can’t. But I am writing about it for hours at a time in my book. The good and the not so good. There are many times that I’ve had to hold my tongue, which as you can imagine is not an easy thing for me. Well, I won’t be doing that in my book. I will tell tales about the loves of my life, and the not so much ones. I will spell out the names of the many that unconditionally helped build Kate and me, and misspell with enough room for you to make good educated guesses the names of the very few who pissed me off. I will not hold back about my soap journey and hopefully make you laugh at my tripping through most areas of my life to get to where I am now…still tripping through most areas of my life. It will be the whole truth and nothing but the truth… except for the parts that could get me sued.  I long to tell you things and not sure that I should.. but I’m doing it anyway. Writing it feels good. xoxo”

So will you be one of the first to order Nancy’s book when it is out of the oven and ready for its public debut? Comment below.

I have loved Nancy Lee since Santa Barbara. I know some people don’t share my feelings, but to each his own. I know she can get political, but as she has promised to hold her tongue, I imagine that’s one of the things she’s referring to. I for one am looking forward to the book and her story and am sure it will be very interesting, to say the least.

Violet, Nancy is also an excellent writer.

I personally rather doubt the “interesting,” part, Violet, but vulgar and profane are pretty much of a sure bet if the expletive-laden social media postings of the woman in question are any example! Quite frankly, I have even less desire to know the details of the love life of this actress than those of the over-sexed GH character she portrays…which is saying a lot! As for her often inflammatory political commentary, well, it goes way beyond stating mere opinion, which we are all entitled to do… I do agree that SB’s multi-layered Julia Wainwright was a real kick to watch…unlike today’s highly-predictable Alexis Davis! At any rate, hope you are doing well, Violet! (And that you are not experiencing those California rolling blackouts!) Later!

Look forward to reading it!

I take it this is a vanity press-published book. Will she have a chapter on her odd rant toward Viola Davis?

@Charday…I love your wry—-and undoubtedly correct—-“vanity-press” observation, along with your personal recollection of the infamous, never-to-be-forgotten Viola Davis brouhaha. (I thought it was just me who wouldn’t let that one go…) Then there are the equally uncalled for comments about Jack Wagner and Ivanka’s daughter’s birthday present!!!

What did she say about Jack?

Will she reveal the identity of Kate’s father?

She wears that like a badge of honor, along with other things she has felt the need to broadcast.

David Gail, Former ‘Port Charles’ Star, Cause of Death Determined; Mother Speaks Out on Dangers of Pharmaceutical Addiction and Fentanyl Epidemic

David Gail, who played Dr. Joe Scanlon on Port Charles (1999-2000), and who also appeared on Beverly Hills 90210, cause of death has been revealed. The actor passed away on January 16th at the age of 58.

According to the toxicology report, Gail died of anoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, which is a brain injury caused by a a lack of blood flow, following resuscitation from cardio pulmonary arrest due to the drug intoxication. The report also revealed that drug intoxication with amphetamines, cocaine, ethanol and fentanyl, were also involved.

Gail’s mother, Mary Painter, spoke to Deadline on the findings and opened up to what led to David’s ultimate passing. Gail was found unresponsive by emergency personnel who attempted to save his life. Eventually, he was put on life support where he remained for several days till his death.

In her statement, Painter shared, “It breaks my heart to learn that my son died this way. David became reliant on medicine many years ago, after multiple surgeries on his hands and wrists. He lived in enough pain to prevent him from working for almost a decade, with relief only achieved through full disability, physical therapy and pain medicine.”

She then added, “He struggled to stop taking pharmaceuticals and did before turning toward a more Eastern pain management including acupuncture and natural medicines. I can only assume that his former opioid dependence played a part in self-medicating from uncontrolled sources.”

David’s mother expressed a very important social message for our time about addiction that she hopes other parents remain aware of: “David’s death shines a light on the countless innocent victims of pharmaceutical addiction and the fentanyl epidemic that has taken so many of our sons and daughters. Please keep David and others battling pain or dependence, in your thoughts and prayers.”

Gail’s other TV credits included parts on: Savannah, Matlock, Murder, She Wrote, Doogie Howser, M.D., and Perfect Opposites.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Spinelli Serenades Maxie Then They Kiss! Are you in Favor of a ‘Spixie’ Reunion?

Spixie fans finally got their wish, sort of, on Thursday’s February 22nd episode of ABC’s General Hospital.

While Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) have been each others orbit and married to other people, have had children, and been each other’s best friends, it’s apparent that they belong together, or do they?

In story, Spinelli took to the stage on Karaoke night when he, Maxie, Cody (Josh Kelly) and Sasha (Sofia Mattsson) went out together.  When Spinelli sang, it featured a touching solo performance by Bradford Anderson, where Spinelli wears his heart on his sleeve for Maxie.

Maxie is all smiles watching Spinelli sing, and afterwards he walks towards her. The two talk about his living situation and how he would do anything for her. Maxie says she always knows she can count on him. She admits she loves listening to him sing to her, and she loves having him around. Spinelli says he considers her more than a friend. The two eventually share a kiss, but Maxie runs away.
