She comes to Genoa City claiming to be Dullans wife who has no memory of her…Joe hired her to keep Dullan away from Avery but…never mind thats the Jake/Hayden/Ric/Liz story over at GH…lol

Notice, Y&R and GH both have identity stories that could come to the forefront in May. [Adam and Jason]

Although I think she’s a beautiful actress and I loved her on G. Light, I don’t get it. We just lost Courtney & Austin. We haven’t seen Mark Harding since New Year’s, so if we lost the people we love due to cut-back’s why are we bringing someone else aboard?

There is only one for her to be connect with;
Felicity and Victor … they are involved in the secret..

I like new characters so am looking forward to her 2 days …

suOO, you constantly say you like new characters and that you grow tired of the veteran characters. You seem to thrive on change.
Now please know I don’t mean this as an insult or dig at all, but could you have ADHD?

She was woefully miscast as Marah on GL (and got stuck with some awful storylines) but I did always think she could act. I sort of wondered what had happened to her; it’s been more than a decade and I don’t recall seeing any news of her—guest shots on nighttime, parts in movies, anything. There was a rumor a few years ago that she was going to replace Vail Bloom as why-can’t-I-think-of-Paul’s-daughter’s-name-right-now, but nothing came of it.

Didn’t watch GL at all, but it seems like people really like her. Maybe her stint will turn into longer than just 2 days if she makes a good impression. My guess is that she’ll be working with Victor or maybe even Jack for Jabot’s new fragrance. She could even have something to do with Cane taking over Chancellor.

I’m kinda bummed out. I always wanted and pictured her on Gh as Sarah Webber. I mean Elizabeth don’t have no family she’s always in other people drama what better to actually have a purpose.

I have a funny feeling that she”ll portray a recast Chloe, find out that “Gabriel” is really Adam with a new face and after exposing him to the world, try to kill him herself!

It said she’ll play a new character, not a recast!

This is out of context…..but, am I wrong in assuming that Hillary is putting on an act? I mean, she really cares what happens to Neil and is still in love with Devon? Regardless, I hope she and Devon are on their way out.
Also, for once, I agree with Victor….ugh! He is right about not telling Leslie anything….as far as Victor is concerned, she is the enemy.

LISTEN TO THE REPLAY: Soap Nation Live! With Laura Wright, Jason Thompson, Michael Easton, Maurice Benard, Stacy Haiduk & Kim Zimmer

If you missed Thursday night’s season premiere of Soap Nation Live! with Michael Fairman it was a broadcast full of surprises, fun, and intriguing intel as some of the biggest names in the soap opera genre helped kick-off the series 2018 run of episodes.

Joining Michael in-studio as guest co-host was General Hospital’s Laura Wright (Carly Corinthos).  The show began with a guest call-in to surprise Laura, which was revealed to be daytime drama icon, and four-time Daytime Emmy winner, Kim Zimmer (Ex-Reva) of Guiding Light.  Laura and Kim worked together on the beloved CBS soap where they played sisters.  Kim expressed how much she enjoys checking out General Hospital and the actors performances she has loved watching which included: Max Gail (Mike), and the recently exited Nelle (Chloe Lanier), among others.  Michael, Laura, and Kim bantered on the actresses time on GL and more.

Next, GH’s Michael Easton (Finn) joined the show where he discussed the release of his upcoming 20th anniversary edition of his book 18 Straight Whiskeys, working on GH opposite Finola Hughes (Anna) and Jessica Tuck (Cassandra).  During his segment, Michael Fairman asked Easton to play a game show segment he prepared for him, which was called, “Michael, Who Said That?” In it, Michael Easton had to guess which one of his many soap characters was he portraying in the scene in the audio clip, and it made for one of the highlights of the night.

Calling in from New York City was Stacy Haiduk, who is about to make her debut this week on the August 21st of Days of our Lives as Susan Banks, replacing Eileen Davidson in the role.  Susan is back on the canvas just as John and Marlena’s wedding is about to begin.  The question is: Will more of Davidson’s roles be played by Haiduk during her upcoming rum on the show?  We chatted with Stacy about working on DAYS, and taking over the one-of-a-kind role of Susan made soap-famous by Emmy winner, Davidson.

Then, The Young and the Restless, Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott) was our special guest in the studio.  Jason talked about Billy’s latest stumble back into his gambling addiction, Phyllis’ fling with Nick, and if Billy will be able to resist the seduction attempts by Phyllis’ daughter, Summer on upcoming episodes.  Jason fielded several questions from fans who called-in to chat with him during his segment.  As well, throughout the broadcast, several listeners were able to get through the busy phone lines to pose a question to our guests.

Michael surprised the listeners with none other than Maurice Benard (Sonny) of General Hospital as the last guest on the show.  Maurice was celebrating his 25th anniversary as Sonny on the ABC daytime drama series.  With Maurice, some of the funniest moments of the night occurred when Jason and Laura recounted what happened the first time they met him.  Maurice also expressed that this past week, he taped some of his most favorite scenes of all-time, and Laura said they have been very emotional.  As announced, look for a special Sonny-centric episode in September in honor of Benard’s 25 years as Port Charles’ top mobster.

Finally, one lucky caller won a pair of tickets to the GH Fantasy Event in Atlanta, Georgia, during our game show trivia segment, when he had the correct answers (with an assist from Jason Thompson) to the questions.
