GH’s Steve Burton Asks Fan Factions To Stop Inciting Bashing And Hatred

Photo Credit: JPI StudiosAs we know, sometimes the Twitterverse can get very ugly.  And over the last month, passionate fan bases of General Hospital have let their voices be heard.  However, some have taken it to a level that has been negative towards the actors who are portraying a storyline, or popular fan bases insulting each other.

Stemming from the big reveal that Steve Burton is the true Jason Morgan, and Billy Miller is now playing his twin brother, Drew, with the love of both men’s life, Sam (Kelly Monaco) caught in the middle, there has been an escalation in bashing on social media that has had all three actors have asking the fans to please be kind to their co-workers, and to each other, and to stop the hatred.

Steve Burton took to his Twitter account and said: “Please stop. There is no ill will with @kellymonaco1 or . We are a team of actors telling a story. We are a team delivering the story we are given. No hate. No fan wars. We we one.”

Meanwhile over Thanksgiving, Kelly Monaco posted:  “Hey @GeneralHospital fans, maybe you didn’t hear us. We #choosekindness. #billymiller and I appreciate any support but not at the expense of our costars. #killywithkindness #HappyThanksgiving #letsallplaynice #gh

So, can we all just enjoy the ride of this rollercoaster of a storyline. and respect the fantastic talents of all three actors involved, and if we have a difference of opinion, and it’s not the way we want a pairing or reveal to go, express ourselves in a way that does not hurt anyone’s feelings? Let us know your thoughts on this in the comment section below.

It’s pathetic how some people act. First they think the actors really are the characters. “I can’t believe X did that. I hate X.” Well X is a character and the actor is playing a role. And a writer is writing things. There’s nothing wrong with liking a show and rooting on a storyline but some people truly can’t separate real life from a tv show

I grew up watching “The Stories/ Soap Opera’s” with my mother. It is unbelievable to know that some take entertainment as truth. I am a fan of Steve

Why can’t fans just watch the show and keep the hatred to themselves. We are very lucky to still have a show to watch. I grew up watching Several that are gone now. I am thankful for the shows left. I am an old woman now and these shows are a connection to my past and give me comfort watching them.

Celia

See, that’s just the thing, Julie ( with all due respect)…..I find no hatred. ….not on these sites, anyway….As for myself, I never use the word ‘hate’….such a harsh, inhuman concept for me. Yes, admittedly, many do use the word….but, from what I’ve read so far, the loathing is directed towards the characters—the part the actors/actresses play.
I am somewhat baffled here. Is the “hatred” of which you speak on Twitter? I do not see any here. ….glad I’m not on Twitter. It must be, …..I see many names I do not recognize.
In that case, I will keep anything which does not pertain to tweets to myself.
It is a sad state we live in if people cannot separate character from actor.

I just wish they would have let Billy Miller be the Real Jason Morgan for the kids’ sake. That way Sam would’ve had her 2 kids, and then Jake also would be the full brother. Now they have it where Sam has Danny and Jake with Steve Burton, and Scout with Billy Miller.

Deb

Jake is Elizabeth’s son

I kinda agree with you but gotta keep things interesting at the same time which they have definitely succeeded at. Also Jake is Jason and Elizabeth’s son but yes I feel bad for everyone involved especially the kids it will be difficult for them to understand. No matter who Sam finally decides to be with in the end, the other man with have to be okay with the other brother still being a part of their lives because she now has a child by each brother.

I personally have been watching since 1979. There should be no shock at the outcome of who turned out to be Jason Morgan; however, Billy Miller.is a huge asset to GH and I’ve enjoyed his time on the show. Here’s hoping for great story lines for all of them for as long as we are lucky to have them all. The chemistry between Steve, Billy, and Kelly cannot be ignored.

AJ

But honestly Diana, that’s the problem. Read what you wrote – “for the kids’ sake” GH is a soap opera. Kids all have different parents. Look at Sonny’s kids. Look at Alexis’ kids. Look at Liz’s kids. Who cares who is the parent of Danny, Jake, and Scout. They’re characters, they’re not real people.

Donna Bradley

Sam only has Danny with Jason. Jake is Elizabeth’s and Jason’s.

I agree, this is insanity. How on earth does such a thing happen? That is, how does the merger between fiction and reality occur in the frontal lobes of the brain? Is this a psychological disorder of some kind?
I figure these new sub soap groups are casualties of the equally absurd Liaison vs Jasam wars. Perhaps the insanity will subside when Jason and Drew bond as brothers. Billy Miller is coming alive and finding his footing with his Drew character. His old spark is back. If any of you Killy or JaSam fans are reading this, just relax and have some fun! Soap operas are served up as a great plate of escapism from our problems. Let it be as such for you.

“How on earth does such a thing happen? That is, how does the merger between fiction and reality occur in the frontal lobes of the brain? Is this a psychological disorder of some kind?”

You know what Harry, there are rabid fans out there who blur the lines. Everyone knows those fans are out there, and what they are capable of.

I can appreciate Steve’s tweet for people to stop. I find Kelly’s tweet a little less convincing or maybe just a little too late. Unfortunately, a lot of actors play up to these rabid fans and I’ve seen her do that and blur the lines between fiction and reality; sending out pictures of her and Billy, hashtagging their squish name Killy, which is their real names, not the character’s names, using hand singles, and frankly suggesting a personal relationship that may or may not exist.

This personal relationship that Kelly and Billy may or may not have is a source of a lot of the contention among Killy fans; they think they are together in real life and that Steve is now disrupting their personal and professional lives by coming back. Kelly on social media, in interviews, at events, has played to these people and kept them guessing. It’s been a way to keep them interested and engaged and now we see the results.

Harry
Harry

MB, thank you for your response. I honestly didn’t know that about Kelly Monaco on Twitter. Interesting and a little vexing. I
I recall watching Susan Lucci being interviewed By Regis Philbin wayyyyy back in the early 80s. She spoke of the time she was in a grocery store and a woman slapped her across the face and called her a home wrecker. This was way before social media was a thing. Then when Finola Hughes arrived in Port Charles as Anna Devane to serve as Robert Scorpio’s new love interest, the actress received death threats in the mail from rabid Holly and Robert Scorpio fans. This was also before the Internet brought us Twitter and Facebook.
So what I guess I am trying to say is that we can’t blame Twitter for this interesting psychological phenomenon. But what I think Twitter does do is it does away with impulse control issues and the poster (the Twitterer?) can hide behind a mask of anonymity which emboldens them. I am sure there is more to it than that but I am at a lost as to how to explain it because I simply don’t understand it.

Get real, this is not real life and these characters are given a script to follow. Have fun with it and whatever happens, it never stays the same for long. Happiness on a soap is short lived.

I don’t understand why people get so upset. it isn’t real life. I wonder if the ppl who write mean tweets are that rude in life or if it is their way of venting. I am just thankful GH is still on.

Fans need to grow the &@$@!( Up!!!!!!! Seriously??!?!? Things are so bad that A TORS have to ask fans to tone it down?! That makes me embarrassed to be a fan!!! To put this into a historical/modern perspective, I remember reading as a child that Eileen Fulton said when she played Lisa as a total bitch on As The Workd Turns, not only did little old
Ladies swat her in supermarkets, but she used to get actual death threats. Fast forward 40 years, and thanks to social media, things are worse, not better!! People who cannot distinguish between television and reality should NOT be allowed to own a television!! In his hypersensitive era when adults are preaching down to kids about bullying, dim-witted adults are some of the biggest and most dangerous bullies around!! This is absurd and ludicrous that performers should have to call out to fans to stop the hate!! I think any fan reading this needs to take a good long look at themselves and decide if they are a fan or a fanatic!! Writing thoughtful, impassioned letters on this or other board is one thing….I do that myself! But “inciting hate” means that the actors are actually worried or fearful about what some fans could or would do!! That means people have crossed the line!!!

Those writing negative comments about a fictional storyline likely watch so much trashy reality TV that they don’t recognize a fictional TV show when they see one. It’s a sad statement about our present day society.

Satan
Satan

As a long term observer of human behavior, I knew Twitter was going to be more trouble than it was worth, when they first rolled it out. There’s a reason the Devil still does not have a Twitter account. Or Facebook either, for that matter.

And as far as the hatred from the fan bases…. not sure where it’s coming from. Jason & Drew seem to be in a “better place” with each other, and will likely be working together to solve the mysteries of their mutual “lost years”. Sam seems genuinely conflicted – and who the Hell wouldn’t be, in her position?

Chill out, Tweeters…. isn’t my old friend JC’s birthday coming up soon? You know, peace on earth and all that crap, right??

No, but what the predatory capitalists have done to it certainly is.

BTW, JC wasn’t born on December 25. If I told you what his actual birthday was, you would never believe me, as this particular date took on an entirely different meaning about 16 years ago. Or 44 years ago, if you live in Chile.

Celia

True, Satan. Christmas is all about money….its true meaning gets lost in the fray: CAPITALISM.
It is tradition more than anything else. But, there are those of us who believe and follow tradition, at the same time.
We celebrate the birth (albeit Christ was born, if I remember correctly, in June, when all the merchants gathered from hither and yon, to sell and trade their wares)…. All the inns were taken…the reason why Mary and Joseph could not find ….. learned this in “Religions of the World” course I took as a post-graduate.
To make a long story short, December 25 was chosen as Christ’s birth to replace the Roman pagan celebration “Saturnalia”…..calendrical-wise, it was very convenient.
Nonetheless, this minor ‘adjustment’ does not minimize the magnitude of the Lord, Jesus Christ.
I am sure the crap is directed toward the capitalistic ‘hoopla’ and not the Man who died for us.
Protect our soul……no blasphemy here, right?…. Oops….forgot for a minute…..You are Satan.
Merry Christmas!!

@Jimh.
Hi, Jimmy,
I can see how Satan’s comment may be misconstrued, but, in his defense ( I am not a Satan worshipper, DOUBLE LOL), I do not think Satan meant to insult Christmas, that is, the birth of Christ…..as I stated, he is right about Devember 25th not being Jesus’ true Birth Day.
He was just pointing out that Christmas has become a multi-billion dollar business. When we think of Christmas, we think of its meaning last, or some of us, not st all…we do not observe it as a Holy, Blessed day……we all stress out about gifts and baking and cooking…..and, of course, lining the pockets and filling the coffers of giant companies…..Capitalism.
He was just making a point.
It’s all good, my friend…luv-ya!!

Jovin

You need to grow up too and stop referring to yourself as satan. While you may well be one of his ambassadors on earth, you aren’t him. It’s not funny, it’s not cute, it’s not appreciated, it’s just annoying and stupid. You are an attention seeker who has a need to rile up groups of people en masse. Besides the stupid self-satan references, you are a good writer with some very valid points of view regarding soaps that many people agree with. Cut the stupid satan schtick and write your letters!

Celia

We must all develop a sense of humor, Jovin….I love satire. LOL.
I do appreciate how some may find the moniker offensive, though…..I bet Satan is a really nice guy….
Merry Christmas.

Look, this has been a passionate story and fans do get emotional over it. They get invested emotionally. It’s never okay to spread hatred or speak negatively about the artists portraying these characters. We can speak up about the storyline and express our opinions about it. The jury is still out as far as I’m concerned about the way this story is being written. I have my own opinion about how I would like the outcome to be. It truly ripped my heart out when Jason was written off. Then, my heart was healing over how he was brought back . Now, Jason isn’t Jason but Drew. The real Jason returns. Sam is caught between a rock and hard place. You can see how this story could tear at your heartstrings if you’re as passionate about soaps as I am. We must always remember that it’s just a soap and the artists portraying these characters are not them in real life. It’s just a gig. They’re doing their job and I must say, quite well.

It is a very sad state when actors need to remind viewers that they are workers, portraying characters, telling fictional stories. The amount unbridled hateful rage and vitriol being unleashed in this country is shameful. How far down the road to de-civilization we are headed?

I applaud the actors for taking the high road and appealing for civil behavior.

Linda

I agree that there is too much rage in this country. It is pathetic when people dont realize the soaps are fiction and the actors are playing characters. If you dont like a particular actor dont obsess about it over the media.

Everyone needs to understand the actors r playing a part they r so good they make us feel they r real.
Quit the hate enjoy them enjoy the actor parts they play what they r given. I look at all the actors and think they r wonderful in the parts they r playing. Come on people lighten up its a show.

Wow. I didn’t know this. Crazy.
Everyone is so rightfully angry these days, but this is TV. Calm down.

We need more Billy Miller in a hot tub. Where’s Ron Carlivati when we need him!?!?

GHIsDead
GHIsDead

What’s new? Isn’t this indicative of the Guza fanbase who TPTB have been courting with their Two Jasons/Two Carlys/and Sonny storyline?

Then we have the Julexis fanbase rooting for the TV poster couple for domestic abuse with opposition from anyone and everyone who has ever watched the show and has a brain.

We have a war between OLTL fans and GH fans that is still ongoing today.

All of these are incited by TPTB and fans need to get smart and stop taking the bait. They love that you are taking so much of your time to make them more buzzworthy on social media, perhaps raising their ratings that way as well.

The actors are caught in the middle and TPTB don’t care. Apparently their fans don’t care either. Then again, these are exactly the type fans TPTB want. As Guza and Phelps said, they trained you.

Shay
Shay

@GHIsDead…..Since I basically sat out the Guza era and its “all mob, all the time” concept, I was not so familiar with its accompanying fanwars until I came to this website…to say it was quite an eye-opener is a total understatement, although I still cannot claim to get that fired up about which of the (now) four characters of Sam, Drew, Jason and Liz end up with whom….I’m just enjoying their respective journeys back to whomever! On the other hand, being someone who is truly appalled by your aforementioned “poster couple,” I sincerely thank you for the characterization you have so charitably afforded those of us who find genuine offense in this relationship! The petty brouhahas kicked up over the defense of this cheap, revolting duo has really been beyond the pale and are guaranteed to continue since the GH showrunners seemingly insist upon putting this unpalatable pairing back into their all-too-predictable trainwreck mode! How very touching and romantic….NOT!!!!!

Shelly
Shelly

Their fanbase has been doing this for years, the only difference is they’re now doing it to each other.

That being said, we could all do better. It’s easy to say things online you wouldn’t dream of saying in real life. I’ll personally continue to try to do better….❤️

MissySnow

I agree. I will point toward Brian Frons for not nipping another round of JaSam when those fans starting acting nasty and evil toward BH in 2006 and no2 it’s even more rabid/insane toward SBu, KeMo and BM.

James R. Poissant
James R. Poissant

Jeez—the way I’m reading this is that there are a bunch of people who really are infantile. This story has me looking at everything from both angles and I really like siding with both characters and having to wait until the next episode to see what happens next. Why go down to being hateful to each other over a freakin’ story???

Celia
Celia

Hey, James,
Right? Anyway, back to the Jason/Drew saga, LOL………Has Jason sought Dr “Andre” for selfish reasons? If Drew’s memories can be ‘reinstated’ , the field would be left wide open– to chase Sam, that is.
In doing so, there would be the chance for Drew to remember another woman in his life ( Kim or someone else?) he loved passionately, and voila’, bye-bye Sam?
I am not as vested in Sam’s relationships as other fans……not a long-time watcher. This story could go either way. I really don’t care. But, gee….poor Billy!!

Soaphound
Soaphound

Oh Celia, I agree. Speaking of which, did you see that buddinsky Carly on Monday trying to undermine Drew & Sam under the guise of love? “Oh, poor Jason, no one has thought about what he’s lost. Everyone just feels sorry for Drew”. IS SHE FOR REAL? She and Sonny and Spinelli and Diane and Robin all turned their backs on Drew the SECOND Jason turned up. The only one on Drew’s side is Sam. Carly and Sonny are the very definition of snakes in the grass, no loyalty, no compassion except for Saint Jason. On the flip side, how cute are Billy M. and Oscar together?!

Celia
Celia

@Soaphound.
Hello, there…
…’buddinsky’?? Had a good laugh. Ain’t gonna say notin’ else….we were all ( those who say ‘tootie’ about the Magnificent Seven….including Michael) put in our respective places.
However, when we ‘deface’ appearance, I can understand how that can rub off on the actors.
…… as I said to Timmm, the same goes for the fans—poster against poster—that’s never acceptable.
I don’t get it…are we all to venerate Sonny and Carly? Just because? Nothing against the actors, but if we cannot express an opinion, then what? I am not into the Stepford-wife meme…..nor am I a fan of Big Brother….it’s not 1984….HaHa.
I will never accept the Sonny and Carly law; nor the Julian and Alexis law; nor the -holier-than-thou, defrocked priest—he should talk!!

“Buddinsky”? Hilarious, love that word. I watched Carol Brunette’s 50th Anniversary special last night and the word was used in describing the woman Harvey Korman played. Great word, let’s not lose it!

Steve is a MAN! He has the guts to confront the haters! Having opinions is why we are here, agree or disagree. But what the man said is true, these are actors acting out what is written for OUR entertainment value and their compensation and love of the art. We can root for couples but dont be cruel. Steve is a good guy. Most any soap star is fan friendly and charitable. Think about your words before you type them, they are entertainers, real people with real feelings. God bless Steve, Kelly and Billy!

Love Jason and Dtew!!! Always have wanted Jason with SSam…..Maybe Drew will remember how he felt for Kim…i am hoping that’s what’s gonna happen…Sam and Jason will always be soulmates…u just can’t change that..i don’t think Sam could ever be really happy and content knowing the love of her life is alive and back in town!

Yes…..I like Steve….but Billy is my guy. I think the ‘brothers’ will find their way back to the womb, per se…..start over. They will become best friends.
The only way, as I said, for a happy ending would be when/if Drew remembers his true love from the past.
Sam and Jason will get back together and all will be well in PC again? Doubt it. Not with Sonny lurking and looming like the Angel of Death ….ball and chain holding the town hostage. LOL.

Renee

Right! Steve Burton it’s just a soap opera. There is no need to be mean. I’m just glad your back! Waiting patiently for your happy ending.

Celia
Celia

Thank you, Renee…..took the words right out of my mind. Actors, in general are in the public eye….under a constant microscope. I stop short at name calling, not just to the actors, but to the fans as well….this is where the hypocrisy rests….some posters on the GH sites get away wirh horrific name-calling of fellow posters…..those posts should not appear in print. Fans have feelings as much as the actors do….or PEOPLE in higher places….
Steve has impressed me….I have become fond of his personae, as Dylan and Jason. However, he must realize that people DO do this …..some people are very cruel….it’s one thing to stomp on a character….very different to do so on an actor. However, some of these actors/actresses should use a modicum of pudor, in dress, speech, ‘tude ( unless it’s acting) and general appearance, if they do not want to hear negativity…..otherwise they are in the wrong business.
Again, the hypocrisy runs rampant…. it’s okay to call “OTHERS” atrocious names…..as long as they are not from Tinseltown. I I like Steve……but, we must all use a little caution when speaking our minds. I, for one, do not exculpate myself, albeit I do have a civil tongue in my mouth…
Happy Holidays to one and all…..off to be merry….

I love the show, love the story line love the actor’s. I was excited to have the real Jason *Steve Burton) back. I like Drews character, and I’m hoping he ends up with Oscars Mom. I prefer Jason n Sam. I’ve watched the show from day one, and just love Jason and Sam together. But I’m not gonna bash anyone over the story line. You are all wonderful actors and do a phenomenal job, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all…❤

My dear Harry, belated Christmas wishes to you, as well! (And a Happy New Year….let’s hope 2018 is magnificent for us both, if that is humanly possible given our, um, divergent views on certain matters! LOL….) But having said that, I’ve never given up on the people who I most admire and enjoy here at MFSoaps simply due to a difference of opinion, even BIG ones…it would be a pretty dull world–and website—if we simply parroted each others’ thoughts all the time! And you, “Mr. Lime,” with your sparkling wit and dry humor are at the top of that list!!! (Along with Addison and Osgood, et al….and the endlessly delightful Phyllis Fontaine DeMarco, whoever “she” is!!! I’ve treasured all of your entertaining posts over this past year! And yes, I did receive your additional message in my personal inbox!) In fact, there have been numerous occasions upon which I’ve responded to your clever quips and spot-on observations in a similarly cheeky manner over these many months and my sentiments just never made it online, but believe me, the intent to trade thoughts with you has remained throughout! (Just wanted you to know….) At any rate, I’m very glad that the magic of this holiday season has lifted your spirits….it’s is ever so nice to have our lovely and hilarious “Harry” back on these threads where he belongs! Later, my forever GH friend!!!

Shay
Shay

Amen, Timmmbo! I think Steve, Billy and Kelly are all hitting it out of the park with their given storyline, plus the sensitive and mature manner in which their characters are handling their gut-wrenching situation as it pertains to their collective “family” also should give the audience much food for thought. All three are acting like adults for the sake of the children and it has been a beautiful thing to behold, as has been GH, which in and of itself is a true miracle! Many of us were convinced such a revival of its fortunes was never to be in the cards, so to once again be able to look forward to each new episode—along with the return of many fan favorites (finally!)—is a real cause for celebration, not condemnation of pet couplings from the past that may or may not come to fruition this time around!

I see the hate in one of the GH groups I am in. The hate is for BM as Drew. They did like BM until SB decided to come back.That’s when the hate started. GH mess up this S/L if they knew SB could return then they should of never recast the part. I accepted BM as Jason to then find out he is Drew. So I can see where the hate coming from on both sides. I don’t like this Twin S/L. Looks like a copy of the Twin S/L from OLTL. (Todd & Victor). GH had to know fans wouldn’t take this well at all. SB left went to Y&R & then decides to come back & we have to welcome him back as Jason. After BM was doing a great job as Jason. Anyone can see why there’s so much hate now.

Love having Steve back and the storyline is riveting. The writers will eventually bring the twins close and it will be epic. As a fan, what have the writers done to Sam? She is NOT this sappy a&(ed wimp they are writing her to be now. Please give her the back bone and toughness the fans all love about her. That’s what I care the most about, not what man she chooses, although I would like to see her with Jason, eventually.

Jennifer

I agree with the actors! I have read some of the comments on FB and twitter and people are mean! My Grammy use to be a huge fan of GH and I started watching with her about 40years ago… Have I liked every storyline? No! Did I like all the characters? No! We all need to remember that GH is a television show! It is NOT real life! Steve Burton does not work work for Maurice Benhard in the mob! Kelly Monaco is not a CEO of a media company and her “dead” husband didn’t come back from the grave! Please try to remember that. If you don’t like a story line, remind yourself that it will probably change in a few weeks. The ACTORS are just following a SCRIPT that was written by the writers for GH!please be kind to each other, Love each other and please STOP BEING HATEFUL!!!!!!!

Steve Burton is such a class act. I really like Billy Miller. I think he is a great actor, very much like Steve Burton, and just as charismatic and handsome. Honestly, I would like to see the brothers come together and unite-as friends. I am not a fan of Sam, I never have been, but I am able to separate Sam Morgan from Kelly Monaco. My dislike of the character does not flow into hatred for the actress. Some people are just ignorant and hateful!

I don’t understand cowards hiding behind twitter to spew their hate. Any misgivings I’ve had about GH over the years (and there has been a lot–notably how much I cannot stand the Sonny character) is directed at the show, quality of writing, and the characters, not the actors or any individuals working on the show.

While I’m glad Steve IS Jason I think Everyone involved in this storyline are doing a FABULOUS JOB!!! Share the Love people——‘‘tis The season!!!!

I love that Steve Burton (the real Jason) is back. I watched Jason and Sam on the docks on Tuesday’s episode. The chemistry between them sizzled. It’s a testament to the acting skills of Steve Burton and Kelly
Monaco. The only others that have that chemistry are Carly and Sonny.
Great work – GH is rocking with this storyline.
I’m hating what they are doing to the Alexis character – making her a victim of physical abuse. Hook him up with Cassandra…they deserve each other.

I love all you guys, and I think that all of you are very talented. So don’t let some of the things some people say that is negative get to you, can’t please everyone, you’ll doing your job and I think all of you are good at it. Now even though I love Drew, I think that Sam and Jason should get back together because they are really good together and they have been through so much together, they are soul mates and a ride and die couple and I would love for them to make it work. And Drew have a past and when he get his memory back, he’s gonna realize that he has his own soul mate just waiting on him to return. Love all you guys keep up the GOOD WORK.

I absolutely love General Hospital. I also love the storyline. I’m always glued to the TV when it’s on. People need to understand that it’s fiction. Drew and Jason make great viewing. Sam is outstanding. All the other characters grab my attention. If the cast acted the way some fans wish they would act I think it would be boring.
General Hospital writers are brilliant. They write the unexpected.
Keep up the great , intriguing story. I LOVE YOU ALL

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO THE CAST AND CREW OF GENERAL HOSPITAL

It only takes a few and I really feel sorry for the actor’s involved. I will say I don’t like a character and the actor playing them but it is very rare for me. I think it’s just that soaps are on daily and most is due to writing and some the acting.

Michael (not Fairman)
Michael (not Fairman)

Seriously—things got so out of hand that it was necessary for the actors to come out and ask people to behave themselves?

Come on, folks! I know people can get very passionate about the soaps, but this kind of thing is wa-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-y over the top.

Congrats to Steve Burton and Kelly Monaco for stepping up and trying to inject some sanity. (Didn’t Kelly Monaco and Becky Herbst have to do something similar a year or two ago, when Sam and Liz were rivals for thought-he-was-Jason’s affections?)

People need to . . . grow up.

(I must say: I have never once regretted my decision that Twitter was something I could not be bothered with.)

Hi Michael (not Fairman)

Yes; I believe you’re correct. Kelly and Becky had to address their fans…each side warring with the other. Insanity….

Just an add: Billy Miller also posted to stop the madness. He and Kelly did a cute lil video snippet together to tell fans to back off.

Everyone’s fighting with everyone. There’s not a day that goes by that you don’t read about actors arguing with each other, too. Matt Damon is currently in the hot seat for an interview he gave on the “me too” movement.

I’d say with sarcasm human nature at its finest but we’ve never been that “fine.” People have been fighting and warring, large and small, from the beginning of time. Which is why many of us prefer our pets! 😉

I, too, would like the bashing to stop. These people are actors, paid to do a job. But I would like to see a friendship or brotherly bond between the twins…regardless of who wins Sam’s heart!

Hi Debbie, I too began watching with my grandma from the beginning! As all have said it’s tv & they’re actors who play what is written for that day! In my opinion if your feelings for certain actors are that strong just maybe it’s because they are all excellent actors who make each of their Characters who they are!!! Bottom line is they are excellent actors who make the characters believable!!!!

Merry Christmas & Happy New year to all my GH family & their families also!!!!

Julia Musall

Me too. Grew up watching soaps as a little girl with my aunt after school. Gh, amc, oltl, doctors, y&r, and others. I miss the meet and greats with the actors. I was so upset when Steve Burton left. There is only one stone cold. But was so happy to hear Billy Miller was going to play Jason. Watched him on amc, and y&r. Their loss our gain. But now with both of them on gh. Yay. We have never had disrespectful fans so let’s not start now.

Eleanor Rudland

I, too, would like the bashing to stop. These are paid actors that are doing their job…quite well, I might add! I would also like a brotherly bond to develop between the twins, regardless of who wins Sam’s heart.

If a fictional story on a fictional tv show has people so very upset and mean towards other maybe they should switch the channel to the real world to see how much better things are in “Port Charles” then they are every where in actual life.
I too have watched this show for just about the length of time its been on starting at age 10 when home from school recovering from a serious car accident…mom and I started watching it together and even after she passed away I kept up with it for her. The characters are not always likeable but the actors who portray them are great! There is one actor on there now to whom I will always be grateful to his father as it was a song of his fathers my oldest brother kept singing to himself while a POW in Vietnam for 3 years along with two other songs to keep his mind clear. Thank you Mr. Stuart.

Thank you, Steve, for saying something. You’re all wonderful actors just doing a job and providing us fans entertainment. We may not like a particular character or something a character does, but that doesn’t mean we need to bash the actor playing the role. Regardless of entertainment purposes, General Hospital is a business. Every decision in every character is a business decision, though some people don’t understand that or seem to forget that. I remember the days when Bobbie Spencer repeatedly tried to break up Scotty and Laura. Fans hated her! Now they love her and Jackie Zeman. Same with Luke, and Tony Geary. I’m glad you’re back. You, Billy and Kelly are doing fantastic work!

Thanks for all the good times p.s. I got my fingers crossed for Sam and Jason and Drew and Kim

As an avid watcher of GH, I am disappointed that fans would bash the actors. This is a story. The actors are perfect. I love therm all. The chemistry is phenomenal. Let’s not read more into it. Steve, Kelly and Billy—- love you…. Don’t let the haters win! If yuou would personally reply to me I would greatly appreciate it!!!!

I just feel it is time to move on with the story line people r just getting bored with the whole sam jason drew make the decision who she going to be with and move on give drew back his memory he is not going

Celia

You are so right, T….and so is Steve. But, as humans and avid fans we lose focus and sight……I am one of the culprits.
The same thing should apply when certain posters bash/attack other posters, as you well know, my dear Timmmy…..the actors/actresses are not the only people who should be respected…….so should we, the fans, the loyal fans.
I think this should apply to all….yeah, even the President….
I will try my best not to step on actors’/characters’ feelings. But, it is soooo hard not to ‘bruise’ Sonny—-not Maurice—Sonny, the infinite paragon of all things decent and good. How’s that?? Ciao, baby!!
Thank God I do not tweet or have a Facebook account. So futile.

Jimh
Jimh

C…a lot of us know the show isnt real nor are the characters…but we seem to complain about them as if they are real and that shows how well a soap involves the viewers and thats what they were meant to be and do…a second world outside our own…where we for an hour or more five days a week can go so we can step away from our real lives and problems and get involved on the ‘real lives’ of our second family-soap characters-and try to fix their lives and solve their problems to make us feel better in bad times when we cant solve our own problems and we need that escape to our Wonderland known as the soap opera-and thats what soaps allow us to do-help us forget our problems at least for a few hours a day…there is no other genre that lets us do that and thats why i always love soaps

Celia
Celia

Exactly, Jimmy!!!!!! We do become attached to certain characters, thus we champion them. I love Billy Miller, but I must cofess I did say on a number of occasions, I have a hard time understanding him when he speaks…..same goes for Kelly. Sometimes between the two of them, I have to strain my neck closer to the set to understand their( what seems to sound like) mumbling.
It does not mean I h*te them.
I do not loathe Maurice, either, but Sonny represents the most degenerate worm on earth. I can’t say that??
Yes, for some it is an escape from reality….But, I like my reality…happy with it. I watch soaps because I grew up watching them…..Erasing them from my life would be likened to erasing part of what makes me who/what I am. I know people who ridicule soap fans—I don’t get it….LOL.
Nevertheless, there are those posters who take up residence within the environs of make believe towns of Never-Never-Land because they “have an agenda”, as Shay said.
And, yes….soaps can be a soothing balm just as you describe it. You are such a sentimentalist, Jimmy…..I love you for your gentle heart. Enjoy the Holidays…..
Ten days of battling with a hoarde of kids….my own, nephews and nieces galore…..
Just kidding!! Looking forward to it. LOL.

Shay

@Jimh….As always, you’ve provided perspective in your own charming and inimitable fashion! Of course, soaps can offer us refuge from the daily trials and tribulations of life, but most of us have the ability to separate fact from fiction and fantasy from reality once an episode ends….we recognize what’s make-believe and don’t get overly- invested in matters regarding people who don’t actually exist! Just as when we gather here to share and compare our thoughts on the latest happenings in soapville, it’s intended to be a pleasant, momentary break from our own unique human experiences, yet when it’s taken too seriously or becomes an obsession so that one cannot even freely express opinions without fear of serious reprisals from those who vehemently take issue with our thoughts, then what should be a fun and felicitous exercise becomes an unnecessarily unpleasant outing for the majority of posters who comment in good faith and out of true affection for those we’ve come to consider as friends…Oddly, it seems the holiday season brings out the worst of these tendencies for some, even though it only serves to make me appreciate and acknowledge those individuals who make my life nicer all year round—be it in my own personal sphere or here online, which leads me right back to you, Jimmy! You always make the visits to MFSoaps worthwhile and special….and your posts never fail to delight and inspire! I sincerely hope that this Christmas brings you the joy and peace you deserve and that 2018 will prove to be both happy and healthy for you and your loved ones! Oh, and just so you know, I shall be looking forward to another new year chock full of your incomparable “Jimhisms!”

Shay
Shay

Tell me about it, CeeCee! Like yourself, I totally eschew the social media madness, but just the wholly-unacceptable antics we’ve both experienced here are enough to tell you that some individuals have absolutely no shame or scruples when it comes to the insidious means they will employ to advance their own agendas, and it should never be allowed to go that far. Personally speaking, I’ve too often—and extremely recently—literally had words put in my mouth that I’ve never scripted and been assigned thoughts and emotions which did not emanate from my own heart and mind by certain persons seeking to viciously inflict hurt feelings upon and create discord with other posters who I’ve genuinely come to admire and regard as friends. Whilst one always hopes that most of our regulars here can take such incidents with a grain of salt and simply consider the source, when there is an influx of new contributors, it does make one wonder what they must think of all these offensive goings-on. I just hope they can discern the truth and realize that most of us follow the basic rules of mutual kindness and respect, and that when those are given, they are likewise returned in spades! Which leads me to wish not only you—but the fortunately vast majority of lovely folks who frequent these threads—a Most Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year!

Celia
Celia

I hope you are right in suggesting that most, on these sites, have the ‘vision’ to consider the source. I will not generilize, my Shay….not when we all know from whence the mendacity and constant jabs come….. the many faces of…uhmmm Eve…..who takes liberties by using this venue as a vehicle to vent his/her own issues, posting under different names…both male and female.
Admittedly, it is wrong to ‘cut down’ actors, but I find nothing wrong with discussing the disgusting and untoward behavior of some of the characters. CHARACTER is key-word here.
So, the irony is so thick — the good side of this is, we have a life and nonentities are just that, amica bella….a speck in the universe. I love my soaps, Shay….as much as anyone else, as much as you. Part of my life….I always make room. Michael Fairman facilitaes our coming together…it should be a happy place. ‘Tis unfortunate there is some discord.
I will stick to the storylines, the plot, and my opinions on such. But, how can we be expected to be passive about Sonny’s wrongdoing? The unrealistic turn of some events?…etcetera, etcetera, etcetera
I read Harry’s comment about someone getting sooo way out of line on Twitter? Racism? I cannot tolerate that, and if her account was truncated, then it was the right thing to do. Some people have no filter….I always blame their upbringing….children grow up with distorted ideals and rules set by the adults in ther lives.
I thank God for my parents and grandparents for their open-mindedness—I grew up accepting and tolerating all peoples. I am no better than the next person. I was always taught to be respectful, but to ‘hit’ back when ‘stricken’….stand up for myself, verbally but politely.
What is going on, everywhere, makes me wonder about tomorrow.

I reciprocate your tidings, Shaybelle…Merry Christmas and a very Healthy New Year—whatch those aperitifs….LOL.

I soooooooo agree Shay and Celia! We certainly DO know from whence all the trouble emanates…and the many faces of Eve. Believe me, many know…not just those with unfamiliar names that pop up out of the blue to bash along with you. See now, if the Eve you’re insinuating was truly “Eve” then there’d be a lot of bashing the other way around. But there isn’t, is there?

Hmmmm…

Great points, Celia! I echo your sentiments on the Sonny and Carly fiasco that has sadly endured on GH far too long… I will be a critic of that omnipresent storyline as long as I am present!

And, like you, I am not on FaceBook or Twitter (although years ago, I was briefly on FB). I don’t criticize those who enjoy FB; I am sure it serves a great purpose for many…

But it’s not for me, and I witnessed the insensitivity and destructiveness that have permeated social media. I have seen the loss of privacy, hurt feelings, dysfunction, and political chaos that have become almost synonymous with FB.

I wish all the best to you, dear Friend Celia, and your loved ones in the holiday season! 🙂

I know, we all feel as if these characters are “Ours!” We want want is best for them, good or bad. Sadly, this bleeds into the real world everyday!

Warm wishes to you and your family, Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to everyone. It’s nice we’re all kind of getting along again.

I was thinking of what a genius DR Seuss was. Because no matter how bad things get, no matter what Grinches are out there trying to ruin your Christmas, Christmas still comes. That’s the miracle of Christmas and the miracle of humanity. It (Christmas) always comes through. Yes, Virgina, there is a Santa Clause.
I really hope 2018 proves to be a better year. Speaking for myself, 2017 was a horrid year. It can only get better from here.

I don’t understand this juvenile behavior. I’ve watched GH since it began over 50yrs ago and storylines have always been convoluted, and not only on GH, I’ve also seen Wally Kurth and other GH soap actors I won’t name, on other soaps while scrolling thru channels. They’re actors playing roles…not the actual characters they play. This is nuts!

Virginia DeCarlo

Steve and the rest of the GH crew. I agree with you all. I love the show and all this haterd needs to stop. I’ve been a fan for a very long time and people need to realize that it’s only a TV show. Not real life. Sincerely Ginny.

I think Steve Burton, Kelly Monaco and Billy Miller appreciate their fans sticking up for them and their characters but their job is to entertain people and not to incite hatred or even threats.So if Kelly, Steve and Billy start to feel like they are inciting hatred it could cause them to maybe not be so open with fans going forward.

Lupe

I absolutely agree with Steve Burton! No need to get upset over story lines that they have been given! They are just doing their job! I’m amazed of how wonderful these actors play their characters! They are who make the show exist! Love you all! Keep up the good work!

It makes me sad that there people out there so full of nastiness. This a storyline and a good one. There is no need for angry nasty words. I have been watching this soap since I was in high school many years ago. Lots of changes and storyline have come and gone. And do not recall angry fans. So please stop there is enough ugliness in this country let’s not ruin something fun to watch. Respect all on the show. Thank you

I have always loved Steve as Jason and was saddened when he left to persue other things. I am so happy he is back. I absolutely loved It when I heard billy was coming. He is a fantastic actor whether he is Jason or drew. I.T doesn’t matter. I have my preference as to who I think kelly should be with but to be mean and disrespectful towards these actors is horrible. They put out every day for us to enjoy and this is how we repay them? Let’s enjoy the show and when it’s over go on with our lives. I’m just happy we still have general hospital left to watch. For what it’s worth, I love all of you on GH and have for many many years.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Should Drew Get The Flash Drive Back, But Lose The Last Five Years Of His Life In Doing So?

On Friday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, Drew (Billy Miller) is faced with a dilemma that could change the course of his life forever.  It all comes down to DA Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Hendrickson), and her vendetta against Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard), and how she is leveraging her possession of the flash drive that holds all of Drew’s memories and the key to his past.

In a confrontation at the Metro Court, Drew comes over to talk to Margaux, where he says he is not sure why he hasn’t taken it upon himself to turn her into the cops.  She adamantly points out that she is an attorney, and that he has no evidence that could be used against her in a court of law.  While she goes on about making Sonny pay for what he did to her father, she tries to get Drew to come along with her in her vendetta.  Drew refuses, not because of Sonny or Jason (Steve Burton), but he does not want to do this to Sam (Kelly Monaco) and have Danny be without his father.

Drew then stands up to her and tells he he knows she has been manipulating him for months. Even knowing she has the key to his life with the flashdrive that hold all of his missing years, Drew tells Margaux that she can hold this over his head, but even if he had the flashdrive there is a chance that the procedure to restore his memories could go wrong, and the sad fact that in doing the procedure, he will definitely lose the last five years of his life and all of those memories with Sam and more.  He says to Margaux that those memories mean everything to him.

A confident and irritated Marqaux tells him she is sure he will want the flash drive one day and that he knows her terms if she was to give it to him – helping her bring down Sonny and Jason for the murder of her father.   Drew is left with a difficult decision, while Margaux gets into an elevator and begins to cry over wanting to avenge her father’s death.  But little does she know, that evidence could prove that he was not the man she thinks he was.

So this begs the question to GH fans: Would you like to see Drew retrieve all of his memories as Andrew Cain, at the cost of losing the last five year of his life since being in Port Charles …  or should Drew leave his mind and memories alone and just go forward keeping the last five years in tact, and foregoing what other important history in his life that he may need to know now, or in the future?

LISTEN TO THE REPLAY: Soap Nation Live! With Special Guests: Y&R’s Joshua Morrow, DWTS: Juniors & GH’s Hudson West & B&B’s Joe Lando

Photo Credits: CBS, JPI, ABC

Listen to “Soap Nation Live! October 2018” on Spreaker.

If you missed Thursday night’s broadcast of Soap Nation Live! with Michael Fairman you can now listen to the replay right here in audio player above!

This episode was given to the gents in soaps as Michael welcomed his very special guests: The Young and the Restless Joshua Morrow (Nick Newman), Dancing with the Stars: Juniors and General Hospital’s Hudson West (Jake), and The Bold and the Beautiful, and One Life to Live and Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman favorite, Joe Lando (Judge Craig McMullen).

During this fun night of chat, Joshua weighed-in on the Shick wedding that went bust, when Sharon told Nick at the altar that she knows he had sex with Phyllis.  Morrow, who will celebrate his 25th year as Nick Newman in early 2019 chimed in what the future for the stat-crossed couple may hold, and how he has enjoyed showing Nick’s dark side of late, plus he revealed one scene he felt uncomfortable with that he would not play, the ladies over the years in Nick’s life, and when asked by a listener of his memories of the late, great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor), Joshua shared some fun and poignant remembrances. He also addressed the status of Doug Davidson at the CBS daytime drama, and hopes that the writers will find a way to utilize the Y&R vet in the future.

Next, Hudson West’s joined the podcast where he gave listeners the inside scoop on what it has been like to be one of the 12 celebrity kids competing in the first-ever Dancing with the Stars: Juniors, which debuts Sunday at 8PMEST in a two-hour season premiere on ABC.  Hudson talked on how he has been learning the dance moves with his young pro dance partner and Dancing with the Stars pro mentor, how he deals with nerves before performing his dance routines and more.  General Hospital fans who know of Hudson’s Daytime Emmy-nominated performance of Jake Webber, Elizabeth and Jason’s son, got some interesting tidbits when he talked about working with Rebecca Herbst, Steve Burton and more, and how much he loves being on the show.

The final guest of the night was Joe Lando.  Prior to bringing Joe on the air, Michael played a classic clip from Megan’s death on One Life to Live from the 90’s, where Joe as Jake Harrison performed one of the saddest and most memorable scenes in soaps with his then acting partner, Jessica Tuck.  Joe then revealed when he was on Soap Nation Live that it has been over 20 years since he had heard the scene, and was still moved by it.  Lando who is now appearing as Judge McMullen on CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful teased there could be a love interest around the corner for the judge, as well as some retribution for his ruling in the custody case of Will Spencer, because of a favor called in by Ridge.  Lando also talks about his time on the hit primetime series, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman as Byron Sully, and shared more about his time on One Life to Live working with the likes of: Erika Slezak, Bob Woods, and Tuck.

Last, during out Game Show segment, a lucky caller won two VIP tickets to the Star Struck Fan Event Fall Festival in Alexandria, Virginia featuring members of the cast of Days of our Lives, as well as a Y&R goodie bag; which includes a personalizes autographed picture of Joshua Morrow, after answering correctly some Nick Newman trivia!

For archived and past episodes of Soap Nation Live, you can go to the official show page on Spreaker.com here.

Now, listen to the broadcast with Joshua, Hudson, and Joe above, and then let us know via the comment section below what was your favorite moment in the broadcast.
