Ew, why? Stop trying to trash up our soaps. No wonder the industry doesn’t take soap actors seriously.

Seriously? Soap actors NEVER were taken seriously, going all the way back to the 60s. It has nothing to do with a reality star making one guest appearance. Give me a break.

The good thing about reality stars is they make soap stars look like they are Shakespearean trained (which some are).

Cast Kris Kardashian as Dina Abbott, that would be terrific. I adore Kris she is a terrific business woman. Her acting could be good, she will have scenes with Eileen Davidson, Peter Bergman and Beth Maitland. Imagine the fireworks lol.

hi CC …
well, Y&R needs some trash LOL
It would be great if she came to Y&R to be in the research lab of the hospital with a flesh eating venereal disease ahaaa!
and stitch could save her.

The only way I would be interested in her appearance is if she took Stitch with her on her way out of town…

Now, su….that’s funny. Good one.
We don’t need the soaps to give us laughs, SuzieQ. We’ve got you!!!!
Stitch? I doubt he knows the difference between a suture and a stitch. Ha!!

Wait a minute, Alan. You mean you do not find the naval gazing contest which is transpiring between Stitch and Abby to be utterly fascinating?

I remember the day when soaps hired professional trained actors…New York soaps often got good actors from the stage…todays soaps are a joke when it comes to casting and no one is laughing-or watching like they used to-guess ill go watch Manniquin-by the way many of todays actors would make great window displays as manniquins!!!

Unfortunately Jim, so true. Remember the cast from Ryan’s Hope, Edge of Night , heck, as you said all the New York based soaps!

Instead of giving us a worn down alcoholic whatever they could give us the Chippendales!!
12 physically perfect male struttin their stuff would be the correct way to entertain.

((I should be running the soaps! I would not bore you with old housewives showing off all their plastic surgeries but with Magic Mike !
I would rock it with interesting stuff!

I just wish Stitch had turned out to be the Newman leak.
Then we could change his nickname to Snitch!

I think this will be a fun experience. Y&R has had many different people make guest appearances on the show. Victor had that football player on the show as one of the spokespeople for his event in Newman Towers. Ashley deserves a little of the same. I like Erika Jayne Girardi. She gets looked at negatively because of her images in videos but from the scenes I have watched her in on the Real Housewives franchise she is one smart cookie with confidence. Love it, can’t wait.

I would be more excited to learn that Ashely was going to get a new love interest in order to make her a more interesting and viable character on this daytime drama.
How many times must we endure Ashley butting into her two brothers’ business because she has no life of her own? The pathetic thing is one brother is pushing forty while the other is pushing sixty–her acting like their over bearing mother is wince inducing to say the least.

Celia

Actually the ‘other’ brother is well over sixty. Ashley is pushing sixty. He is a grandpapa…..Keemo must have kids, somewhere in Nowhereland.
Shameful how she has no storyline of which to speak.
I love Eileen/Ashley. She is just hanging on, bounced around and made to look like Auntie Em.

True, Peter Bergman is well into his sixties but I am pretty sure he is playing a man in his fifties.
In any case, both Jack and Billy really do not need Ashely to play mother hen at their ages. I fully expect Ashely to ground both of them while depriving them of their cell phones.

Ugh.

Gimmicky appearances like these take you right out of the story. The only good guest stars on soaps have been the ones with real acting experience who have committed to an actual arc or recurring character (Arlene Dahl as Lucinda King on OLTL; Barbara Rush as Nola Orsini on AMC; Donna Mills as Madeline Reeves on GH; Dorothy Maguire as Cora Miller on Y&R; Farley Granger as Earl Mitchell on ATWT; and Ava Gardner as Ruth Galveston on KNOTS LANDING).

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (the late Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!
