Photo: VAntoineInstagram

And you thought Jordan and Andre just weren’t meant to be?  Well, maybe on-screen on General Hospital, but off-screen looks like Vinessa Antoine (Jordan) and Anthony Montgomery (Andre) have been together for the last two years!

Yesterday on Valentine’s Day, the beautiful Antoine, posted a photo of her with Montgomery confirming the two are definitely an item via her Instagram account.

Vinessa shared: “Happy Valentines Day! 2 years ago you came in and changed it all @mramontgomery Love you babe. And they said we don’t have chemistry? Ha! “See he’s like everything I dreamed of … But better than the preview… Now everything he working on … Has got me saying me too  Like he food that I need, blood ’cause he bleed … He real ’cause I see, it’s all meant to be … Remember how to make believe … Yo these brothers are your enemy ….You’re in a state of disbelief … Without your heart you’ll never be… So sister’s sing along with me … Because your love is true”. -Floetry”

Meanwhile Anthony also took took Instagram and shared: “Happy V-Day! My love, my everything @therealvinessaantoine. You know what you mean to me. I love you.”

Speaking of “items”–just noted a so-called “blind item” that says “a major character could go back on contract.” The speculation on “Dirty Laundry” that the character is Genie Francis–seems TPTB have still been getting angry tweets and retweets about the injustice to fans. The fans are boycotting the show. So-o-o-o, there’s that speculation; if it proves to be true, I’ll begin watching GH again for sure. Go, Genie! We love you and want to show it! And I love the dignified way you’ve handled the whole situation–that’s just who we always knew you were. Kudos–and come back soon! I’ll watch… Read more »

I hope you’re right, Nancy! I know I’ve done my share, voicing my anger to Valentini, Varni, ABC itself, basically anyone that would listen about the disgraceful way they treated Genie. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that GH’s ratings have been down since. They obviously don’t care what the fans think, but that’s the one thing they might actually pay attention to. Double fingers crossed.

Hmmmm…In 2013 she announced she was engaged to the “love of her life” Matt Levy; they were married in 2014. Didn’t know they were divorced! LOL…things change.

Congrats to Vinessa and Anthony…miss him on GH!

isn’t it ironic, just when the show finally made the character of andre interesting, they got rid of him, its just puzzling sometimes how the misses on certain things, but to hear that andre and jordan are an item in real life is awesome congrats to the couple, now if only we could get andre back, because i’m sorry, Curtis is a bore, i rather have andre back.

Rebecca, staying above the fray (below) are we? Poor Vinessa and Anthony, it was such a slow GH news week that we had to use their thread to talk through the technical aspects of posting on this site. In that vein, other than being an original post and the first respondent, what criteria determines whether subsequent respondents get a “reply” button? In introducing Dirty Harry to us yesterday, it seemed like everyone responding to Jamesj75 had a reply button attached to their posts. Who knows, perhaps there is some arbitrary stuff going on behind the scenes, but Jamesj75 said it… Read more »

Hey Reed… I must confess I’m not sure what your “Dirty Harry” reference means! LOL…do you mean the new character, “Harrison Chase?” And THIS is the Vinessa/Anthony thread…Jamesj75’s gracious explanation to posters as to why they each haven’t received a personal reply was on THAT thread! I don’t think it was because it was a slow GH news week…I think it’s because we all get frustrated when our comments don’t appear…I’ve at times seen comments in my email from others to me but they’re not posted here… And yes…there might be a “method to the madness” as to why certain… Read more »

Apologies for my brain freeze re your comment. I get it! (AFTER I already replied to you.) Forget slow GH week…I think it was a “slow” me moment! Yes; staying above/below the fray WHEN I CAN!

Rebecca, nice to hear from you, and do try (to remain above it), it’s not worth it. And not to egg you on (please, no!) but after seeing you take some more grief, I was feeling nostalgic for when I ran afoul and it was via the 10/19/17 GH thread. People are not without their predispositions, so try as you might, it may never be taken in the spirit it’s intended. While I’m no grammarian, well-placed punctuation and better word selection can go a long way, but ultimately, they’re going to take it how they take it. You can’t read… Read more »

Hey, Reed…

Your grammar and good-natured intent on the subjective opinion where you “ran afoul” was perfect. And I agree with your “subjectivity.”

You were feeling “nostalgic?” LOL… Me? I’ve no need to wax nostalgic; it’s still in my present! 😉

Reed…Vinessa can only work with the lines the writers give her. She doesn’t need to be a Dirty Harry type, but wish they would give her something more to work with and make her look more effective as Commissioner. Liked seeing her on NCIS. When it comes to seeing some of our soap favs elsewhere I saw Billy Miller in a Major Crimes episodes a couple of days ago.

Hi Rose, yes, it’s nice to see the folks that keep us company during the day get some other exposure. Just got done watching Billy’s Ray Donovan stint, as well as Bradford Anderson in Homeland. True, the portrayal of Jordan and the PCPD tends toward the Keystone Cops and not Steven Bochco fare. They can do better. Add to that my disappointed that they chose not to elevate Valarie’s character to fill the void left by Nathan. This is where Steve, our resident “insider” and frequent contributor, or even Rebecca, with her publishing background could probably weigh in, but I… Read more »

In that case, let’s reunite these two lovebirds onscreen…Jordan can spring Andre from Pentonville and they can go off into the sunset together. That would leave Curtis to mix and mingle with Lulu, or how about the always game Alexis??? I’m sure that would thrill Aunt Stella to no end!

I thought to myself….hmmmmm….I can see them happening when her marriage to Dante hits the eventual skids…I rather liked the notion of this modern-day Nellie Bly On The Fly and too cool for school Curtis hooking… Read more »

LOL, Shay…that ain’t gonna happen. Perhaps Andre will return, but not reunite with Jordan.
I think they make an ok couple….we do not know them in real life; but, they seem to be fun people….got a glimpse of that; at least, if Andre’s dancing is any indication…..niiice!!
Curtis? I absolutely love him…hot, hot, hot…he stays, yes?
By the by, Shay…are you a fan of Sean Kanan? If so, you can catch him tomorrow night, Feb.17th at 10 PM, Eastern Standard Time, on the Greg Gutfeld Show—-FOXNEWS Channel.
See you there, LOL.

@CeeCee….Thank you for the SK heads up! Just watched him on GG’s latest episode….he was awesome! Handsome, intelligent and as articulate as ever! We have the wrong Q running for mayor of Port Charles….it should be AJ!!!! Bring him back….stat! #AJLIves! As for Curtis, I have twice sung his praises in response to your post, and neither reply made it online, but yes, Curtis stays! I also seriously doubt either landed in your inbox, but one can always live in hope! Later, mia amica…and thanks again!

Oh I guess I am getting nasty in my older years but one out of twenty romances in Hollywood make it ! Always as good as the next movie or the next scene partner this is not make believe that’s why most Hollywood marriages work if the other person lives in real story! They made Anna look stupid and I guess you are back to what was going on ten years ago Carly Jason Sonny and Sam

SHAY, this is in reply to your reply. Yes, I got your Email, and it was hilarious. I had to call my daughter, and read it to her. She said it was AWFUL, of course referring to your description of Alexis. I wonder why it didn’t post. The Email does not tell you whom the sender is, so I didn’t know , until I got your second one.

So, just know that many times each of us experiences posts that don’t appear and replies that don’t as well. I agree with your daughter…the comments made about Alexis (one of my favorite characters and played by one of my favorite actresses) was “awful.” But, to me and many Alexis/Nancy Grahn fans… not in a humorous way.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a Fighter, and an Idealist, and an Advocate”; Nancy Lee Grahn Gives Masterful Performance In Special Episode

When you combine superb direction, writing, production, and acting in a special episode of a daytime drama, viewers can see and understand the thought and care that went into it.

This was more than on display during Thursday’s highly-anticipated ‘Alexis-Centric’ episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Alexis’ portrayer, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, on General Hospital.

Courtesy/ABC

In the story, symbolism was apparent and used for dramatic impact and it worked beautifully throughout, and best of all, Nancy received a script worthy of her immeasurable talents, and showed us once again why she remains one of the gold standards of our genre.  If you have not seen the episode DO NOT read any further as it contains spoilers.

It begins with an emotional Alexis looking at her mother’s watch which was still frozen from the time of her death.  While playing one of her mother’s records very loudly, she recalls Mikkos Cassadine kissing and dancing with her mom as a young Alexis (Natasha) looked on from the staircase.  When Sam asks her about it, Alexis shares that she sees the watch as sort of a representation for her own life being frozen over the last three years; which has included Alexis’ battle with booze taking over her life and her being disbarred, when being a lawyer was the way she identified herself and what gave her purpose.

Overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden, Alexis hightails it to Kevin’s office for a therapy session knowing she is going to Pentonville in the morning to serve her sentence.  She says she does not know who she is anymore.  Then, Kevin asks her how she spent her day thus far.  She flashes back to lunch with the good men in her life, Finn, Valentin, Jax and Ned.  Valentin tells Alexis she is proud of her for honing up to her mistakes.

Back at the therapy session, Alexis she was an attorney who stood for something and her life has derailed, and that she was a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate.  She knows she has to find a purpose in prison to make it through the three-year term and asks Kevin to help her find one.

Kevin wants to go back to when she was a little girl and her memories that are flooding back to her of Mikkos and her mother.  Just then, the younger version of Alexis is huddled in the corner of Kevin’s office, an image of her from the past.  Alexis tries to come to terms with her father and the choice of dangerous men and relationships that have marred her own happiness  … recalling Julian holding a knife to her throat like Mikkos did to her mother. She says he was one of the toxic men in her life, but Kevin reminds her all of the men in her life were not toxic.

Alexis starts with Ned as one who was good for her saying he was always stable, but she ruined that by recently sleeping with him and putting a wedge in his marriage to her long-time friend, Olivia.

We then flashback to earlier in the day, where Alexis ends up in an almost confrontation with Olivia.  However, Olivia tells her she misses the Alexis Davis she used to be and to get her back.

Now back with Kevin, a guilt-ridden Alexis relays she feels responsible for Neil’s death.  Kevin interjects she is not, nor what happened with Julian.  When Kevin attempts to bring up Mikkos again, Alexis rejects it and is angry that he is making her problem about daddy issues; like so many other women.  She vehemently shouts that the men in her life do not define who she is.

Then, Alexis flashes back to hurtful memories she has buried of a young Natasha witnessing Mikkos calling her mother a “greedy little bitch”.  She recalls it was on Christmas Eve and that Mikkos stopped by to give them gifts. That is when he presented her mother with the watch.  However, things took an ugly turn when he tried to leave, and she threatened to tell Helena all about her and Natasha. Next, Mikkos slapped her and that is when the watch shattered. As all this was going down, a young Natasha watched from the stairs and was horrified that she couldn’t stop her father from beating her mother and remembers how helpless she felt.

However, Alexis reveals to Kevin she thought this would be the last of Mikkos coming by, but he returned on New Year’s Eve and her mother took him back into their lives.  Alexis is beside herself that she could not protect her mother, but Kevin reassures her to remember she was just a child.

Courtesy/ABC

It is then we come to the crux of the story.  Alexis looks over in the corner and sees her younger self crying. She goes to her younger self and tells her nothing that happened was her fault, and that their father was damaged and cruel. She tells the young Natasha this shouldn’t have been her burden to carry alone, and that she deserves to be happy. Then in the moment of strength and coming full circle, Alexis introduces herself to the young Natasha, “I’m Alexis Davis, a fighter, an advocate, and an idealist … and I will take care of everything from her on out.”  In that moment, Alexis embraced herself, and forgave herself, so she could move on with her life.

Alexis then flashes back to earlier that night, as the Davis girls gather for a faux graduation ceremony so Alexis could see Molly in her cap and gown and they hug. Back in her session, Kevin remarks that Alexis has repeatedly defined herself as a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate, and reminds her she has three daughters who have those qualities, and that all she needs to be is Alexis Davis.

Then, we get a heart-warming montage of Alexis though the years in honor of Nancy’s 25th anniversary with GH.

Courtesy/ABC

As the episode concludes, it is the next morning, and Alexis enters Pentonville and enters her jail cell. There she meets her fellow inmate, who is studying law books to prep for her upcoming parole hearing. Alexis introduces herself as “Alexis Davis” and as someone who can help her.  We then go back to her mother’s watch which now begins ticking at Alexis’ home.  The show fades to black.

Kudos to Daytime Emmy winner, Phideaux Xavier for his outstanding direction, head writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and script writer, Scott Sickles for the thoughtful episode, EP Frank Valentini and his production crew for putting it all together, and the one and only Nancy Lee Grahn for a performance that will be remembered as a classic.

GH’s Kin Shriner Talks on Franco’s Demise, Scott’s Budding Romance with Obrecht, and His Enduring On-Screen Partnership with Genie Francis

One of the most beloved actors in the history of General Hospital, Kin Shriner, currently finds his alter-ego, Scott Baldwin, in a new budding on-screen romance with none other than Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati).

This comes on the heels of Scott learning the devastating news that his son, Franco Baldwin was shot and killed, thus writing-off the ABC daytime drama series, for now, popular actor, Roger Howarth.

Photo: JPI

Throughout his now almost 44-year-run on the ABC daytime drama series, Kin Shriner has brought his unique acting chops that helped mold the character of legal eagle Scott Baldwin into the humorous, at times cutthroat, endearing and many times heartbreaking character we have all come to love.’

 

In a brand new exclusive virtual sit-down interview with Michael Fairman on You Tube’s The Michael Fairman Channel, Shriner opens up about his history with GH and the times he stepped away to take on roles on Texas and As the World Turns, and then back again to the town of Port Charles and GH.

Photo: ABC

As well, Kin reveals his reaction to learning the news that Roger Howarth would be exiting the show as his TV son and how he shot the key emotional scene where Laura (Genie Francis) tells Scott that Franco had died.  Shriner shares that he does not see how when Howarth returns to the show in as a yet-to-be-revealed character, that it would be a stretch if the two were some how related, but that he will miss working with the talented Howarth as a scene-partner.

Photo: JPI

As to the women in Scott’s life, Kin addresses each of them from: Lucy (Lynn Herring), Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), Dominque (Shell Danielson), Laura (Francis), Ava (Maura West) – to which the character could never get that close to – and now Liesl (Gati), and working opposite all the powerhouse actresses who portray them.

Photo: ABC

For fans of General Hospital who have watched the series for decades, Kin also shares memories of working with his late TV parents, Peter Hansen (Lee), Susan Brown (Gail) and his friend and former GH castmate John Reilly (Sean), plus backstage stories with his longtime scene partner, Genie Francis.

Watch the entire conversation with Kin below.

Now let us know, are you all for the Scott and Liesl romance? Will you miss scenes between Scott and Franco?  Would you ever want to see Scott and Laura reunite romantically? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
