‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Favorite Chandra Wilson To Make Another Guest Star Turn On GH

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

There will be a new doctor in the house at General Hospital, sort of.  Word on Monday from TV Insider is that Grey’s Anatomy’s Chandra Wilson, who is also a noted soap opera fan, will be taping a guest appearance on the ABC daytime drama series.

This is not Wilson’s first time on GH.  The popular ‘Grey’s’ star taped a guest stint in 2014 when she played Tina Estrada, a patient of Dr. Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom).

Now, Chandra will be the person doing the listening and the counseling, when she plays noted marriage and family therapist, Dr. Linda  Massey, who is hired to counsel Aunt Stella (Vernee Watson), Jordan (Vinessa Antoine), and Curtis (Donnell Turner).  Wonder how that will work out since Stella has objected to Jordan being anywhere near her nephew!

No airdate yet as to when the episode featuring Chandra will air.  But for the woman who plays Dr, Miranda Bailey on ‘Grey’s’, her jaunt over to the set of GH is not far, since Grey’s also tapes on the same lot on the soundstages next to the ABC daytime drama series.

So, what do you think will happen in the therapy session between Stella, Jordan, Curtis and Dr. Linda? Share your theories in the comment section below

I have no idea who that woman is. That being said
I ask-
Why ohh lord why a therapy session between Stella, Jordan, Curtis and Dr. Linda.
That is so not good..
I do not care about their dumb problems but a therapy session to bore the bejesus outta me is uncalled for lol..

NEW writers need a year ago.. GH is riding the stupid rail ..

Why, su000, why do they keep torturing us? I thought Ms. Antoine’s upcoming exit meant LESS Jordan, not more! Can’t we marry off Aunt Stella to Mike and have them both ride off into the sunset?

Soaphound,
Gh is becoming critical.
Nothing is being done, nothing to revive it.
It needs to totally clean house and bring in writers that actually remember its glory days and the writing that made it so..

At the least they could go back 20-30 years and put new life into the old scripts- as they can not come up with good stories on their own so revising the glory days scripts and adding a modern touch to them just might be the ticket to save the day.

Perhaps a protest to clean house could help.dunno.

hi Jimh..
thing is– GH could be great !
GH has a cast of phantasmal actors, they need great stories and they are given junk.

Why ABC/DISNEY has not cleaned house to revive its 50 yr old prize show the loyalty for it is beyond me.
All they need to do is put effort into trying.
GH’s producers and writers is killing GH and that is more than obvious.

So do I, Jimh, and I have to say, it is well-deserved. Most days, GH is truly unwatchable….just utter, complete drivel dedicated to the most unnecessary characters and useless storylines….and when something doesn’t work, it will be utilized again and again, instead of moving on. As for this repeat stunt casting….why? There is absolutely no point to it….sort of like 90% of what is currently going on in Port Charles!

This is just so stupid! Is anyone really that invested in this relationship? I don’t remember who she played before when she made a guest appearance.

I actually do not mind Stella. I’m just not that invested in this couple.

Love me some Chandra. I don’t think it will be a great bump in the ratings for GH; stunt casting rarely is, but Chandra is an enthusiastic supporter of daytime soaps and I welcome her.

WHY? Taking up more GH time that regular actors on the show should get! This women will not bring in ONE more fan to the show. Frank gets his rocks off stunt casting so I guess we have to deal with it! FF, for sure!

Stunt casting is exactly what this is, Timmm. I like Chandra on GREY’S, but I don’t know anyone who’ll suddenly start tuning in to GH because she’s on. I’m sure it’s a thrill for her, but my guess is fans would prefer more Genie Francis or another neglected “non-contract” favorite.

The show should be more focused on Brad, Lucas and the baby…

Carley has become a chore to watch.. She’s off the rails and an irritant, she needs to be dragged off and tranquilised. Carley has become too much of a screaming banshee and singing the same crazy note. ((I used to really like Carly..no longer)) Jason is a Total fail. That character has outlived its time. He does nothing absolutely nothing worth watching= robot man Jordan, Curtis are a fail. snooze. I have zero interest in the hollow moulded couple. (( Curtis should be the Top Cop)) Valentin it horribly wasted, shameful. He could bring the action, intrigue, action after all… Read more »

I agree with everything you said…i would had rather seen Curtis as a cop too…Valetin was suppose to be the worse of the Cassidines,,,but instead he is too good and should be living on Sesame Street…

YES! I love it-a screaming banshee! Carly should have been left in the mental ward!
Of course the writers portray the new District Attorney (who I am not a fan of) as already being defeated by the Corinthos Clan, and oh, wait for it, a baby blanket! How ridiculous is this storyline? #blanketgate #penguingate

To mention;
The online AMC and OLTO brought the soaps into the Modern media, brought the soaps into the now..
IF- the swearing was taken out, those scripts could/would save GH.they would kickazz for sure.
Those scripts are desperately needed to bring GH into the now, 2018/19
GH needs to bring in those writers !!!

Hi Su000, I HAVE to disagree with you there! The online OLTL show was beyond a miserable fail for me. I couldn’t have hated it more. The characters weren’t familiar; the few actors from the ABC version that went over didn’t even seem like the same characters to me. Thought it was artificial, boring…nothing like the show I loved. Whenever I reminisce about OLTL it has nothing to do with the reboot; it’s blocked from my mind. Lucifer has been saved by Netflix which I think you know. THAT I’m so excited about. I’ll be subscribing to the channel once… Read more »

Hi rebecca 🙂 What I was mentioning was the ”writing” of the online soaps nothing to do with the actors/cast ect. The writing was modern, for instance, The Sex trafficking story was intense, intriguing and realistic. And, emotional, and never done before. The Y&R sex trafficking story was pathetic and absolutely void of anything sex trafficking. The writing of the online sex trafficking story was straight on and realistic. The writing online was very good, different and not the same old reruns as we get with every story.. So, if those writers were to take over the GH writing staff… Read more »

Hey, su000. You are one of the most agreeable people on this site and have been for years. No matter how much venom was swung about you managed to stay out of it and not take sides, etc. So, 🙂 Paleeeez take this with a hug and a smile…I so disagree with you!!!! LOL! Dunno. I like the soaps as they are. I don’t expect them to be anything different than they are…”soapy.” That’s why they’ve last 40-50 years while most show last 6 months-a few years. Continuity. They’re always about family, friends, enemies, relationships, crime, passion, love, betrayal, etc…and… Read more »

Just had to add this; didn’t want to wait for approval/editing. I know you were talking about the writing of the online shows. That’s what I meant; the writing for the characters like Vicki, Clint, David, etc didn’t feel the same to me. I just didn’t feel the same connection to them that I felt when they were on the ABC version. Didn’t like the writing at all; wouldn’t matter if it was set in the Victorian era or some futuristic planet. Just didn’t like it.

hi rebecca .. I gotcha yah!! Know what you’re meaning 🙂 I do want to say– every good conversation needs some controversy to keep it interesting and I really don’t mind ha arsh feedback it keeps me from falling asleep; reading love-in threads ahaa!.. I really like replying with Everyone herein- luvs em all. Ok– I see why we differed about online. Thing is, those characters you love I’m not all that familiar with them so the online soaps really were good the way I saw them, the writing was quite modern.I liked that. And aside- I liked Pratt’s writing… Read more »

Ingo Rademacher Speaks Out On His Dismissal From GH Sharing: “I Was Hoping to Play Jax For Another 10 or 25 Years and Unfortunately, That’s Not Going to Happen”

For the first time since he was fired for not adhering to General Hospital’s and Disney/ABC’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate, Ingo Rademacher (Ex-Jax), addressed his exit from the soap opera via an “official video” message on his Instagram account.

Ingo expressed: “I’m sorry that I didn’t put out this video earlier, but this is about thanking you guys, the fans of the show and also the GH crew and cast. I was on the show for 25 years. They were like my family a lot of the people there. I was hoping to play Jax for another 10 or 25 years and unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. I want to thank you guys for sticking with Jax for 25 years and I’m sorry that I’m not there anymore to play Jax, which is still something that I am trying to process  … it’s just kind of crazy.”

Rademacher also took aim at his former co-star, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) for announcing on Twitter that he was no longer on the show, before he had a chance to do so, which he says was a huge disappointment to him given that they worked together for 25 years.

He went on to say how he appreciated all the positive comments from the fans adding, “A lot of you come on there to say that you’re vaccinated but stand for medical freedom, I love hearing that, because I believe it should be a choice.”  Ingo continued to express his view, “I don’t agree with vaccine mandates or corporations ever being able to mandate a vaccine to keep your job.”

The actor closed with another nod to the viewers of GH adding, “Thank you so much for supporting me for 25 years. I will have more news later on, but for now, just wanted to thank all of you amazing fans. Thank you.”

You can watch Rademacher’s full statement via his IG post below.  Then, let us know what you thought of Ingo’s long-awaited exit message in the comment section.

OLTL Alum Arlene Dahl Dead At 96, Son Lorenzo Lamas Shares: “She Was The Most Positive Influence In My Life”

Another loss for the soap world and its extended family.  Arlene Dahl, who had a notable career in film and television, and who appeared on both One Life to Live and All My Children, has passed away at the age of 96.

Her son, former Falcon Crest and The Bold and the Beautiful star, Lorenzo Lamas (Ex-Lance and Ex-Hector, respectively), shared the news via his Facebook page: “Mom passed away this morning in New York. She was the most positive influence on my life. I will remember her laughter, her joy, her dignity as she navigated the challenges that she faced. Never an ill word about anyone crossed her lips. Her ability to forgive left me speechless at times. She truly was a force of nature and as we got closer in my adult life, I leaned on her more and more as my life counselor and the person I knew that lived and loved to the fullest. My sympathies go to her loving husband @marcrosennyc who, for the last 37 years, made her life so wonderful and joyous. Love you mom forever ♥️ #ArleneDahl #Moviestar #legend #mom #RIP”

Dahl came on to One life to Live as Lucinda Schenk Wilson, the selfish and manipulative mother of Mimi King played by Kristin Meadows.  Arlene made appearances on the ABC soap starting in 1981 and eventually was offered a one-year contract that took her through till 1984. A decade later, Dahl came on to play Lady Lucille on All My Children for a short time.

On One Life to Live, Arlene mixed it up with Phillip Carey’s Asa Buchanan and Jeremy Slate’s Chuck Wilson.  Dahl is also well-known as one of the regular panelists on the game show, What’s My Line?

While still working in TV and films, Arlene branched out into beauty and cosmetics, eventually becoming an executive and beauty columnist.

Throughout her life, Arlene was married six times.  She had been married to Marc Rosen since 1984 and they remained together till her death.  She is survived by her son Lorenzo, two other children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Watch Arlene with Phillip Carey in scenes from OLTL below.

As the World Turns and Guiding Light Favorite, Lisa Brown, Passes Away at 67

(UPDATED) In just more heartbreaking news in the soap world in 2021, we have lost another beloved performer.  Lisa Brown, who was so noteworthy for her spunky and emotional turns as Guiding Light’s Nola Reardon from 1980-1985, and later as Iva Snyder on As the World Turns from 1986-1994, has died.

Brown passed away this week on November 24th at the age of 67 following a brief illness.  The news came via the As the World Turns Facebook Fan Group and Soap Opera Digest.

This comes just two months later following the death of her former on-screen love interest Michael Tylo (Ex-Quinton, Guiding Light), who passed away in late September.

Those that followed Lisa’s career know she also starred in the Broadway Musical 42nd Street, while still playing Nola each and every day on Guiding Light.

She is survived by her children: James “Buddy” Nielsen, and daughter Victoria from her first husband Tom Nielsen (Ex-Floyd, GL) in addition to her two grandchildren, Penelope Ruiz-Nielsen and Brayden Hopf, and her second husband Brian Neary.

Brown’s on-screen ATWT daughter, Martha Byrne  (Ex-Lily) simply tweeted, “My heart is broken.”

On Friday, Lisa’s son, Buddy Nielsen, posted a touching tribute to his mother, where he revealed that she passed away due to cancer.

Buddy shared: “My Mom passed away the day before Thanksgiving after a very quick battle with cancer. This all happened really fast and wasn’t expecting it. I’ve been MIA as I’ve been back and forth between LA and NJ as she has been in and out of the hospital the last couple weeks. This dream we live, we are all subject to the suffering, aging and death. It’s not to be morose but to understand that we have finite time and must take care with what we do and how we do it. To be able to be with someone at their last breath is truly beautiful. We must not fear death as without it we would never be born and experience the 10,000 joys and 10,000 sorrows. Our existence is both small and vast all at the same time. We are tiny but immense. I know she is here but no longer in her physical form, what we do in love we leave in death. My beautiful daughter and unborn son are her legacy.”

Share your condolences to Lisa’s family, and let us know of your remembrances of this wonderful actress who gave us so many memorable moments throughout her career via the comment section below. But first, watch Lisa in some of her classic scenes from ATWT and GL.
