GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

Photo: ABC

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Love Becky, she’s always so appreciative of the fans and never fails to thank us. I’m glad she loved the flowers and Smile Train donation, she deserves to be celebrated, every year.

I’m still very hopeful for Friz, I think Roger and Becky have the most electric onscreen chemistry I’ve ever seen, and I can’t see at this point how Roger can come
back as anyone but Franco, given where we are in his murder story and the timeframe… BUT I’m a BeckyFF and always will be, so I’m just hopeful for some good story to come Elizabeth’s way, no matter the pairing.

She’s a warm and generous woman and deserves accolades all on her own but honestly I’ve have never been so enamoured with a pairing on a show, prime time or daytime Friz captured my heart with heir playful and romantic stories as well as the mysteries they had the opportunity to share. I’m hoping the writers are exercising their creative imagination and return hm as Franco

I love Rebecca, wish she had more air time, I cringe every time I see Carly inserted in every storyline, while Rebecca’s Elizabeth gets less airtime then non contract players, its really messed up. Still, when she’s on she’s magical, Happy Birthday Rebecca.

She is a living person I do not think it ever enters her mind I be jealous or vindictive like I said she is a good soul so take the scenes you get with her abs appreciate it why do you think RH wanted to work with her? They all love her so she is the winner no matter if she has story or not

Happy (Belated) Birthday!

I am sooo happy she’s on GH! Hope she remains there for many more years to come and enjoys it.

Becky is the very definition of love and grace. She deserves every bit of any accolades coming her way.
As a LizFF, I’ve loved almost all her pairings at one time or another. I would probably be up for a Liz/Rogers nu character pairing because they really did generate the best chemistry, but otherwise, new character for me. Finn is her sisters baby daddy, Finn is still clearly in love with Anna, I dont want Liz to be second choice. Mostly I just want Liz to have a story about HER, not her love interest, not her kid, not nurse #3. She got no POV about her husband dying. This has got to change. BH is a wonderful actress, has a large fanbase and the fact that TPTB refuse to give her anything to sink her teeth into, is a mistake on their part.

I think she is wonderful !!! God bless her soul !

Have you ever heard of one person that did not want to work with her?? Answer no so she is a good soul I have never heard a unkind word out of her mouth if she was my employee I would give her the moon !

Under this new writing regime this past year or so, Elizabeth has continously served as a plot point for other people’s stories. From her rekindled friendship/”flirtation” with Nikolas as means of building story for Nava to worrying about and wrongfully accusing Jason of having killed her husband. By the way, on what planet would Franco and Elizabeth be okay with their spouses kissing others or that Elizabeth wouldn’t visit Jason in prison to clarify her doubts? These past few years, Elizabeth has become increasingly isolated as a character. People in her life have either died, left town, or are hardly on the show to begin with (Franco, Lucky, Emily, Robin, Patrick, Epiphany, Hayden, Felix, Sabrina, etc…) People she normally had significant connections with in the past, whether they were friends or frenemies, she really hardly has any scenes with them anymore (Nikolas, Jason, Carly, Maxie, and Sam). She now mainly has short scenes with Laura or scenes with Finn where Elizabeth serves as a sounding board. In order for her to be a viable character once again, the writers need to rebuild old and new connections so that Elizabeth is once again a part of a story and we’ll gain more insight into her own thoughts and POV. Right now, Elizabeth appears a two-dimensional character who doesn’t appear to even mourn her husband who just died, outraged that her son pulled a gun on a police officer or concerned that he’s throwing away an opportunity to attend a very prestigious college. Until Elizabeth is seen having meaningful interactions with others, what’s the point of giving her a new love interest? She will only be used to prop her love interest. As an Elizabeth and Rebecca Herbst fan, it has been very frustrating watching GH this past year. Elizabeth is a character that’s been on the show 24 years and many of us want to see her as an integral part of the canvas once again. Once that’s established, hopefully she will be in story with a new love interest that’s well written and will honour her history on the show.

You are beautiful, Rebecca–inside and out. Happy, Happy Birthday and a million more!!
Rebecca shines as Liz, as well–if only she were given the chance to recapture her life, instead of so much drama and trauma thrown her way.
I appreciate her steadfast love for Franco. If his return is definite; I so hope he will reappear as Franco again by some kind of Divine Providence.
Perhaps Elizabeth will be the heroine and connect all the dots leading to Cyrus’ and Peter’s dastardly deeds. Will she uncover Elijah as a part of Cyrus’ corrupt circle?

Ryan Paevey Makes Statement on Why He is Stepping Back from Acting While Being ‘Grateful to General Hospital for Giving a Green Actor a Chance’ and ‘Hallmark for Changing My Life’

GH and Hallmark fan favorite, Ryan Paevey (ex-Nathan West) wanted to clear the air after numerous reports and rumors had him quitting acting altogether and what that meant for any future projects in Hollywood he may have had planned.

Paevey released an exclusive statement to Heavy.com where he shared what is going on in his life. Back on June 19th, Ryan deactivated his Twitter and Facebook accounts and he may have deactivated his Instagram account on Friday as well, or as of this writing.

For Ryan, the decision to change his current life’s trajectory came after a series of events; chief among them moving closer to home to take care of his ailing mother who is battling lung cancer and social media scammers.

Here is what Ryan shared: “Hey everyone…so first and foremost, I am a bit apprehensive that I even have to make a statement like this. I am certainly accustomed to a certain degree of gossip, but the past few weeks in particular have gotten out of control with speculation from third parties that have taken my words and expanded upon them to meet their narrative, or flat out misrepresented my words or misconstrued their meaning. I have always been an open book, and one who speaks his mind truthfully and directly, and it is unfortunate that we live in a world where social media makes it very easy to twist one’s words; I am often unaware it is even happening until someone from my team messages me in a panic, and so I feel it best to make a formal statement through HEAVY.”

GH’s Dominic Zamprogna Opens Up on Concerns that Dante Was A-Goner: “There’s Any Number of Ways Comas Can Go”

When Detective Dante Falconeri was shot by a Pikeman henchman, and Jason (Steve Burton) was revealed alive and well, it put actor Dominic Zamprogna in a coma, and a bad one in soap terms, at that. For awhile there, it was touch and go for Dante.

The good news is Dante pulled through and is now back to his old self, and just in time for Dominic Zamprogna’s 15th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, which is June 22nd.

Dominic spoke to Soap Opera Digest on his milestone, and reflected back on the fan response from earlier this year when it may have appeared he was exiting the show for a second time.

Zamprogna shared, “It’s nice to hear you say that people were worried about me – when I went into Frank’s (Valentini, EP, GH) office and he told me I was going into a coma, I started to worry about me (laughs)!”

From working on GH for a decade and a half now, Zamprogna has seen his fair share of comas, and in fact, his then on-screen wife, Lulu Spencer Falconeri was written off the show having never awakened from her coma.

“There’s any number of ways comas can go,” said the popular GH star. “People joke, ‘Oh, you’ve got easy work.’ And it’s like, ‘Yeah, as long as it’s an on-screen coma! I don’t want to be in an off-screen coma, because then I’m not on the show!” But honestly, that means the world because we all care what people think about us, you know? And if people are happy to have me around, it feels good, obviously. I’d be lying if I said it didn’t.”

So, are you glad that Dante is still alive and kicking? Did you think the show might write-off Dante after he was shot a few months back? Is it time, as Dominic head towards his 20th anniversary with the soap opera, for the powers-that-be to bring Lulu out of her coma? Should Dante and Sam (Kelly Monaco) eventually tie the knot?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mac Comes Home

You probably needed the hankies during today’s Wednesday, June 19th episode of General Hospital, for it marked the return of fan favorite John J. York to his role as Mac Scorpio.

This was to be York’s first episode back on-screen since he underwent treatment for two blood cancers and revealed his health diagnosis and battle publicly back in September of 2023.

The scenes involving Mac gave viewers all the feels, and it looked as if reality and the soap blurred, especially in York’s scenes with his on-screen children, Maxie (who Max raised) and grandchildren, Georgie, James, and Bailey Louise, and wife, Felicia (Kristina Wagner).

Since Mac was out of town supposedly down in South America helping a ‘friend’, some things have changed, including Spinelli (Bradford Anderson). having moved in with Maxie and the kids, to which Mac does not disapprove.

In the meantime, Cody (Josh Kelly) is a man in conflict when he has second thoughts about not telling Mac he is his biological son.  When James shows up Maxie’s with Cody in tow, he lays his eyes upon the just-arrived-back-in-town Mac. The two share pleasant “hellos.” Later, back at the Quartermaine stables, Cody tells Tracy (Jane Elliot) the long and winding road story of not knowing who is father was for most of his life. Cody shares he finally found his father in Port Charles, but his father doesn’t know he has a son. Tracy thinks Cody now has a chance to re-set some things and should come clean.

Meanwhile, Felicia keeps getting calls from Maxie while she is work at General Hospital and does not pick up. So, Felicia is unaware that her husband is back. Eventually, Felicia arrives at Maxie’s and is in for a big surprise when Mac appears and the two hug and share a kiss.

After the episode aired, and seeing the reaction from GH fans, John J. York took to his account on X. York expressed, “WOW!!! I’m just so humbled by your warm, kind and gracious words as Mac returned to PC! Your support has been monumental! I have a feeling, things are about to get interesting!”

So, what did you think about Mac’s homecoming on GH? Were you touched just seeing John J. York back in action on the ABC soap opera? Comment below.
