GH’s Tajh Bellow On Molly and TJ Baby Drama: “He’s Very Open and Willing to Make Adjustments … to Have a Child”

On General Hospital, Molly and TJ are having a hard time after they learned they cannot conceive a child together. The fertility struggles have taken its toll on Molly, and caused a rift in their relationship, even though TJ is doing his best to some up with viable solutions and stand by her.

In the middle of this, the long-running soap has had to temporarily recast the role of Molly; following Haley Pullos’ car crash and now felony DUI charges.  GH has thus far temporarily replaced Pullos with actress Holiday Mia Kriegel.

The timing of the situation comes at pivotal point in the story, which also sees Kate Mansi taking over the role of Kristina from Lexi Ainsworth, when the show made a casting switch also in the role of Molly’s sister.

Meanwhile, Tajh Bellow (TJ) spoke to Soap Opera Digest about the challenges ahead for TJ and Molly to have a child.  Bellow expressed: “I think TJ is trying to take it step by step. Adversity isn’t a new thing for them, and Molly and TJ have never been conventional. So with that understanding in the back of his mind, he’s very open and willing to make adjustments and to do what they need to do to have a child.”

So, with rumors that it will wind up being Kristina carrying Molly and TJ’s child, how would you feel about that? How do you feel TJ’s response to Molly has been through all of this thus far? Does the story still work for you without Haley Pullos currently not on-screen as Molly? Share your views in the comment section below.

I had no desire to see “Molly” back on the canvas. I found her obnoxious and would rather the show had broken up TJ and Molly and given TJ a new relationship. I couldn’t stand the way Haley played the role. Now that Haley’s gone and Holiday Mia Kriegel is in the role, I’m interested in their story and look forward to it. I hope Holiday is permanent…I’ve no desire to see Haley Pullos back.

Timing has not been on GH’s side this year. They need to slow this storyline and find a quality replacement Molly. Or, adjust the storyline and have Molly leave town for a while causing TJ and Kristina to give into a night of passion.

Regardless, you can’t start a major storyline with two new recasts in pivotal roles.

She’s way more than a “quality replacement.” Not sure what you even mean. I couldn’t stand Haley Pullos and her whiney voice for one more second. This recast actress is a vast improvement; she actually sounds and carries herself with a more sophisticated, young professional, vibe.

General Hospital Alum Richard Simmons ‘Not Interested’ In Biopic with Pauly Shore Portraying Him

Former General Hospital guest star and fitness guru, the reclusive Richard Simmons, has come forward and addressed actor and comedian, Pauly Shore’s wish to play the 70’s and 80’s pop culture icon in a biopic about his life.

Shore previously took to social media and on X shared a side-by-side of him and Simmons. Accompanying the post, Pauly expressed: I’ve noticed the reactions to me playing #RichardSimmons in a biopic. I heard he’s living in Big Bear. We’ve been playing phone tag (yes, he has a phone). I’m trying to make it happen, you guys. In the meantime, hit up all the big producers. I’ll see you at @TheAcademy 2025!”

However, TMZ’s sources are reporting on Saturday that Simmons is not in favor of Shore playing him in a film or anyone else, or any biopic on his life.

The outlet shared that Richard’s reaction was that he was aware of the effort behind a biopic, mostly spear-headed by Pauly. but that he just doesn’t want to be involved. Simmons also added that he likes Pauly a lot, but he’s not biting, despite the public’s urging on social media about the idea of a movie on his life.

Born Milton Teagle “Richard” Simmons, he became part of the public conscious back in the 70’s and 80’s with exercise studios and the ability to help his clients lose weight; many of them were celebrities. Simmons himself, admitted to at one time to being overweight, and getting into fitness helped him maintain a healthy living style and he wanted to help others.

Later, he began a four-year recurring run on General Hospital playing himself from 1979-1983.  Simmons returned to the show in 2013 for the Nurses’ Ball to taunt Lucy (Lynn Herring). He also was host of the Emmy-award winning, The Richard Simmons Show, which focused on personal health, fitness, exercise, and healthy cooking.  Over the last several years, Simmons has withdrawn from public life.

What would you think of a Richard Simmons biopic and if it included some moments in front of the camera and behind the scenes of what went down when he appeared on GH? Do you think it will ever happen given Simmons current position on the matter? Let us know in the comment section.

Promising news for General Hospital’s John J. York (Mac Scorpio). The actor who went public with his health battle shared Friday on Good Morning America that a life-saving blood stem cell transplant donor may have been located.

An emotional York told GMA, “I believe they found a match, perfect match, which will make me cry.  So we’re going to start our testing and do all that kind of stuff coming up here in about a week, and then I believe the transplant will happen, fingers crossed, in November.”

York went on to explain the difficulties he faced in trying to find a match: “Many of my family members were tested and most of them were 6 out of 12; apparently there’s markers that have to be reached. So they were on standby.”

When asked just what the GH fan favorite would want to say if given the opportunity to speak to the donor that appears to be a match, in tears, John expressed: “Thank you for saving my life. For letting me spend more time with my wife and my daughter and my son-in-law and my grandchildren and seeing this beautiful blue sky.”

John has played Mac Scorpio for 32 years and until recently had kept his battle with these two blood cancers private, but came forward to clarify why he is taking time away from GH, and how he is been trying to find a life-saving donor match.

Never count out Brook Lynn Quartermaine (Amanda Setton)! After her termination at Deception, and following her grandmother Tracy Quartermaine’s (Jane Elliot) blackmailing scheme, BLQ is set to bounce back.

How will she do it? Now comes word from Soap Opera Digest that Brook Lynn will once again go back into the music business when Blaze hires her to be her manager.  This will bring actress and singer, Jacqueline Grace Lopez back to General Hospital to reprise her role as Blaze.

The last time viewers saw Blaze was back on the April 17th episode of GH, when Blaze surprised Chase (Josh Swickard) by turning up to speak on his behalf in front of the PCPD review committee.  Throughout her initial run as the character, Blaze was tormented by that creep of a manager, Linc.  She also became good friends with Chase when they sang together on multiple occasions, and revealed her real name was actually, Allison.
