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’s Jophielle Love Talks On Violet’s Emotional Scenes with Finn, the Loss of Gregory, and Taylor Swift

During General Hospital’s recent episodes surrounding the death of Gregory Chase (Gregory Harrison), who succumbed to complications from ALS, many in the cast delivered touching performances; including Jophielle Love (Violet).

In story, Violet learns of her grandfather’s passing when she comes home from school and her father, Finn (Michael Easton) sits her down to explain that Gregory passed away in the middle of the night. Violet’s reaction was one of devastation and tears.

Michael Fairman TV caught with Jophielle on the red carpet at the recent 51st annual Daytime Creative Arts and Lifestyle Emmy Award ceremonies, where she was a nominee for Best Original Song for the song she co-wrote, “Shine.” The track was first heard back on a December 2023 episode of the ABC daytime drama series and is currently available on Spotify and other music streaming platforms.

When talking about the departure of Gregory Harrison, and Violet’s reaction to her grandpa’s passing, Love shared, “Well, I was very tired from the taping of the three-day wedding, so I already had the tears in me. I knew that I was always going to see him (Gregory Harrison) in real life, but I was also very, very sad he was leaving the show. He was such a delight to work with.”

When Violet saw how difficult it was for her on-screen dad, Finn, to cope with with the death of Gregory, Love shared, “It’s hard for Violet, but Michael and I, we still see each other and he’s always happy (in real life). But, those scenes were hard. I was comforting him.”

Receiving her first Daytime Emmy nomination as songwriter was a thrill for Jophielle: “Well first of all, I was jumping up and down and Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) came and told me while I was on set. I was just so excited.”

Since pop superstar, Taylor Swift, started at a very young age as a singer and a songwriter, does Love see herself as a mini-Taylor? Jophielle emphatically stated, “I’m a mini Me“.  As to what she thinks of the record-setting Swift’s music, and if she likes her work. Love shared, “Yeah, yeah … so, so…”

What did you think of Jophielle’s performance during the passing of Gregory? And her comments here on Gregory Harrison, Michael Easton and Taylor Swift? Comment below.

General Hospital Issues Statement Condemning Racist Attacks Directed at Tabyana Ali

After continued online racist comments directed at General Hospital cast member, Tabyana Ali (Trina), the series has issued its own statement on the situation across all of its social media platforms on Tuesday.

Ali, who back on June 9th took to X to stand up to the racist remarks sent her way, has been facing the same situation since joining the soap opera back in 2022 as a recast in the role of Trina Robinson.

Throughout her time on the ABC soap opera, Tabyana had been one-half of the popular young love story of “Sprina” along with Nicholas Chavez (ex-Spencer).

Now General Hospital is standing up and alongside Ali, with its statement which read: “General Hospital does not tolerate hatred or bigotry of any kind. Racism has no place in Port Charles. GH is for everyone.”  Since its posting, the ability to comment has been turned off on the GH Instagram, Twitter and Facebook accounts.

While the statement does not specifically name Ali, according to Soap Opera Digest, ABC has been communicating with Ali and her representatives about how best to navigate the situation. Once the statement was issued, Ali took to X and said, “I appreciate you so much ABC/GH.”

Back on June 9th, Ali opened up about the “hate” directed at her and then added, “To anyone that hates me, that’s absolutely fine. I don’t know you and you don’t me, but regardless I’m sending you peace, safety and prosperity.”

Several of Ali’s GH co-stars have posted the statement on their Instagram accounts including: Kirsten Storms (Maxie), Jacqueline Grace Lopez (Blaze) and Kate Mansi (Kristina).

What do you think of General Hospital’s statement that racism has no place in Port Charles? Are you glad they stood up for Tabyana, and moving forward for any form of racism related to the show and its cast? Comment below.

Speaking with tears in his eye on coming back to work at the set of GH, York expressed, “Everybody has been very welcoming. Very welcoming, and here I go right off the bat (begins to tear up). I can’t tell you how nice it’s been to get the support that I have gotten.”

When asked by GMA’s Zohreen Shah, what he missed the most about being away from GH, while undergoing treatment, York shared, “I just felt so attached that I didn’t feel I missed anything. I just took a little break and a little vacation, I guess, and had to go through something, and now we’re here kind of on the other side of it.”
