Trina deserves better than Spencer as he is. If he can get his act together, maybe– although he looks so much older than Trina. It’s Esme I can’t tolerate. I hope Cameron doesn’t fall under her spell. I still have reservations about Mr. Chavez in the role. He can act and is really cute (great hair); he just seems too mature for the Port Charles younger set. But he’s definitely growing on me and is terrific eye candy, like his dad.

Hi Soaphound 🙂
You can’t tolerate Esme but–
Someday you might luv her lol
It’s going to be one of those stories of;
The bad evil turns loving good..
The loving good turned bad
Stories..
Those stories are soap writing 101 lol..
I see it starting from when Spencer told Josh
about Esme’s sad pathic life.
Yup, a hint of the Esme pity party coming up..

Well, they made it obvious who Esme’s mother was yesterday. Ironically, she wasn’t even in the scene when it happened.

Willow tells Joss “I never had a sister”.

Yeah… we all know what that means in soap land. So I’m not exactly sure how old Harmony got away from whatever cult she was in at the time to make a baby with Ryan… and then have that kid (and get rid of her) without Willow ever knowing a thing about it….. but you can bet your soul, that’s exactly what’s coming.

And just to add to my own unholy observations….. Have y’all noticed the subtle changes in Esme’s looks in the last week or so….. They are really going out of their way to make her resemble Harmony. I’d say at this point, she looks more like Harmony’s daughter than Willow does. Clearly they’re going to get this revelation out of the way sooner rather than later. Could this be the real reason why Spencer just found himself sentenced to a short stay in that “Spring Ridge” quasi-prison place where Esme herself works, along with her mama (and her daddy Ryan… Read more »

He and Esme are both imperfect but perfect for each other.

I still am not crazy about this fellow. Hopefully his grandmother will get him straightened out when she gets back. Did I just have a hallucination or was Laura actually talking to ” Deputy Mayor Ashby”? I thought when Auntie asked TJ how his mother was yesterday, and he answered that she was doing fine, I assumed she was still away getting medical care, rehab or whatever. What the heck did I miss?

I am going coo coo. Deputy Ashby is a spy for Nickolas’s uncle. I got Asford and Ashby mixed up.

Me too, Violet. I thought she was in a deep coma as a result of organ rejection from a few years ago. Guess I shouldn’t fast forward all of Aunt Stella after all.

I think someone uses voice recognition to write his stories! 😉

ESPN Sports Personality and ‘General Hospital’ Guest Star, Stephen A. Smith Reveals COVID-19 Nearly Took His Life

In a harrowing account of coming down with Covid-19, ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith, who also has a recurring role on General Hospital as Brick, revealed his battle over the holidays that led to him being hospitalized because of the severity of his symptoms.

On Monday, Smith returned to his co-hosting gig on ESPN’s First Take and it was there he shared what happened during his breakthrough case of Covid.  Stephen had been fully vaccinated. Smith said that he had tested positive late in December and wound up in the hospital with pneumonia in both lungs over New Years.

Stephen A. discussed the details, expressing:  “I had 103 degree fever every night. Woke up with chills and a pool of sweat. Headaches were massive. Coughing profusely. And it got to a point where right before New Year’s Eve, I was in the hospital into New Year’s Day. That’s how I brought in the New Year.”

He went on to say about contracting Covid-19: “For me personally, it hit me differently. (Doctors) told me, had I not been vaccinated, I wouldn’t be here. That’s how bad I was. I had pneumonia in both lungs. My liver was bad, and it ravaged me to the point where even now I have to monitor my volume, get to the gym every day … I’m still not 100% with my lungs, but I’m Covid negative … I’m on the road to recovery.”

On a happier note, Smith shared how glad he was to be back at work after testing negative: “I’m ecstatic to be back. I’ve missed being at work. I’ve used more sick days in the last month than I’ve used in my 28-year career in this business.  And I can’t tell you how lucky and sincerely blessed I am to be sitting here with you guys today because two-and-a-half, three weeks ago, I didn’t know if I was gonna make it.”

So, glad to know Stephen A. is on the mend from a very scary bout with Covid? Share your thoughts in the comment section

GH’s Kristina Wagner On Felicia’s Concern Over Maxie’s Emotional State

While Maxie (Kirsten Storms) knows exactly where baby Louise is, not many other people know, especially her mother, Felicia (Kristina Wagner).

Now, with Kristina Wagner back on-contract at General Hospital, it opens up more angles to play in the ongoing saga of “What happened to Maxie and Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) Baby?”

GH viewers know that Louise is “Bailey” and being taken of by Brook Lynn Quartermaine (Amanda Setton).  However, according to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, look for Felicia to be very worried over Maxie’s attitude toward finding her baby.

Wagner shared to SOD on Felicia: “She is absolutely concerned about Maxie. Why is she behaving this way? Is she traumatized to a point where she is not frantically looking for her baby?”

The actress goes on to say about her alter-ego: “Felicia thinks ‘What is wrong with you?  Your baby’s missing. Why are you not (falling apart)?’ And Maxie says, ‘I have to stay calm for my other children.’  She has a way of justifying it, but Felicia is questioning Maxie’s behavior.”

Look for Felicia to be more determined than ever to help find Maxie’s baby, which we know could spell trouble for everyone!

So, do you hope Felicia learns the truth about Louise, and helps Maxie with her cover-up? Or do you hope Felicia helps get the little one back in Maxie’s arms sooner than later? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
