GH’s Nancy Lee Grahn Writing Her Memoir

Photo: ABC

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”

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!

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.

Happy 57th Anniversary Today to General Hospital

ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital turns 57 today, and remains the current longest-running soap opera on the air.  GH debuted back on April 1, 1963.

The show was created by the husband-and-wife team of Frank and Doris Hursley.  Originally, the soap was not given a name of a particular town in which the drama of the hospital was set in.  However, that all changed in the 1970’s when GH was set in Port Charles.

GH expanded from a 30-minute show to a 45-minute show on July 26, 1976 and eventually went to a full-hour where it has remained back on January 16, 1978.

Throughout its decades on the air, GH was the impetus for two spin-offs; Port Charles, (which aired from 1997-2003) and primetime’s GH: Night Shift (2007-2008),

The show went through many ups and downs over its history, but things changed dramatically for the better, when by the end of the 1970’s and facing cancellation, ABC brought in executive producer, Gloria Monty to steer the ship.  Monty created supercouple Luke and Laura played by Tony Geary and Genie Francis, and opened the show up with exciting location shoots, and from then on GH has remained a firm mainstay in the daytime line-up.

Today, Frank Valentini is the series executive producer, and the soap is co-written by the head writing team of Dan O’Connor and Chris Van Etten.

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital. Felix says give it two weeks and she will do something to mess things up.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

Scene after scene, Kelly Thiebaud has lit up the screen and put the “feisty” back onto the ABC soap opera.  As an actress, Kelly can go from the heavy drama, to the comedic, to the sexy, all with ease.

In the March 30th issue of Soap Opera Digest, Thiebaud said of her return:  “Frank Valentini reached out to me the beginning of the year and mentioned that the writers wanted to bring me back for a bit.  I said,’Of course, I will,  I would love nothing more than that!”‘ I just really connect with Britt and have a blast playing her.”

So let us know, have you been enjoying the return of Kelly as Dr. Britt Westbourne, thus far? What do you think Britt is up to? Comment below.
