As Ingo Rademacher is deep into dance rehearsals with his partner, Kym Johnson as one of the competing teams for the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars, premiering on March 18th on ABC, EXTRA dropped by the dance studio to catch up with Australian heartthrob.  During their conversation, EXTRA got some scoop on the announcement that he and long time on-screen scene partner, Vanessa Marcil are headed back to Port Charles with a small story arc as Jax and Brenda!

Ingo revealed on his GH return: “I had to keep it a secret for so long… I had to lie.  It’s a nice little come back with Vanessa Marcil… the Jax and Brenda characters back together for a little bit.  It was a great idea to bring the characters back for the 50th.”    Rademacher also noted that he is already back this week at GH taping scenes with Marcil!

Now on to Dancing with the Stars,  of course Ingo related that he asked long time GH cast mate Kelly Monaco (Sam) for advice when it comes to tips for the ABC ballroom dance competition, and he says Kelly gave him tidbit, “It’s really hard, but you’re going to love it.”

So soap fans, will you be rooting Ingo through each week on Dancing with the Stars? What do you think Jax and Brenda’s story will be when they return to GH for a visit? Weigh-in! Now watch Ingo’s EXTRA segment after the jump!

Maybe theyll be married? But would Sonny or Carly care or not? I just wonder how theyll react if Jax and Brenda were married even if Sonny and Carly have moved on.

I am psyched to have them both return! Looking forward to seeing what team Cartini can do for Brenda, since the last regime made her unrecognizable.

As for DWTS, I will watch his dances the next day on YouTube and will be voting for him!

Not watching or voting for DWTS.If it wasn’t for GH I’d never turn on ABC anymore.Wouldn’t surprise me if they eventually hand GH over to PP to.Anne Sweeney made it clear she didn’t want any daytime scripted shows.Looks like they adding more reality to night time to.If you vote you make money for ABC.

am hoping that Ingo wants a CarJax reunion because as we all know it CarJax and S&B are the loves of each others lives. It’s that simple. I don’t want Jax to be with Brenda coz she has always treated him like a second hand fiddle whenever she could not have Sonny. And she’s always remember to try and turn Sonny’s life upside down when he’s starting to move on.

Actually you know what? Here’s a solution……. Sonny and Connie or Kate or whoever were each other’s first loves. Carly is the love of Jax’s life and we’ve all witnessed that. Too bad he always takes off when things get tough. I mean really Carly took a year to divorrce his ass and saved him from getting killed by Sonny.
I want JAx and Carly to realize they are not complete with anyone else. And I want Laura Wright to drop this Todd nonsense!

Totally giving all Votes to Ingo!!! Love him & Brenda are coming back, poor Carly hates that Brenda too so I hope good arguments happen!!

Definitely rooting for him; only one I’m tuning in for this season. DWTS is a spectacular entertainment show..one of my absolute favorites. But for me, personally, the “celebrities” this upcoming season, other than Ingo, is a letdown.

Being on J&B. Sonny’s gone back to his first love, best love – Kaconnie. Carly’s going back to Original Baby Daddy, AJ. And Jax back to his real love, Brenda.

They should bring Jax on full time. I wouldn’t watch a show because someone from Dancing With The Stars was on but it would remind most GH viewers who are casual viewers, who tune in now and then, to switch channels if they aren’t busy, or dvr it.

Not a Jax fan at all. I read he is very short term. I hope that is correct. Brenda I used to love. Last time she was on I couldn’t wait for her to leave. Maybe the new writer’s will write her a little more likeable but I hope every guy on the show doesn’t fall at her feet like the last time. It was sickening. I hate those thick black glasses she wears. I hope she puts in her contacts. I wear glasses so I am not anti glasses. I just don’t like the ones she wears on her. I hope Sonny doesn’t want her at all. If she is going after Sonny I hope Kate is Connie. Connie can take care of Brenda. Kate would just cry.

I love Ingo and have missed him on GH so much. I just wished he could be paired with someone who really, really loves him,. I think they are going full steam ahead with Carly and Todd, so Carly is out. They will most likely dangle Sonny into Brenda’s life so it’s hard to get into that one too. Actually, I would love to see Jax with Alexis or someone totally new. Just as long as there isn’t another man always waiting in the background. This is what has turned me off of Carly and Brenda. There will always be Todd or Sonny around for them. I want to see Jax happy.

I love IR and VM back together as Jax and Brenda! I think they are the love of each others lives.

Wish Ingo well on DWTS!

GH Preview – Week of June 25, 2018

This week on General Hospital, after a rather unsettling sound is heard from another cell at Ferncliff, who could be in there? That is the question Jason (Steve Burton) asks Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) from last Friday’s cliffhanger. Will the mystery person be revealed?  Meanwhile, Jason’s janitorial gig may be up thanks to Mary Pat (Patricia Bethune).  Looks like Carly (Laura Wright) may have to go it alone.

Then, look for Michael (Chad Duell) to try to entrap Nelle (Chloe Lanier) at her own game as he finally comes to terms with that he must be the one to save his mother.

Elsewhere, will Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) be hot on Nina’s (Michelle Stafford) trail and find out that she has been complicit in Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) kidnapping?

Check out these teasers below, and then let us know what you are looking forward to most this week on GH via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Julexis Goes To Therapy

On General Hospital, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) was able to convince Julian (William deVry) to attend therapy with her to help her better understand her issues with men and relationships, which all of have been tainted by the destructive relationship between her father Mikkos Cassadine and her mother.

When Julexis sits down for the session with Dr. Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom), things take a bad turn when Alexis starts explaining to Julian why he is there, while Julian feels it’s just an attack on him, and their past, especially when it comes up how he held a knife at her throat on the pier and tried to kill her. Julian tells Kevin that everything he did was to protect his family from his crazy sister, Olivia.

Julian is ready to storm out, but Kevin suggest they implement more structure to the session to make this work for everyone.  It’s clear Julian does want to help Alexis, and/or also come to understand something about himself and their relationship, and why it splintered.  When asked by Kevin why Julian felt encouraged to pursue Alexis when he first came to town; knowing he was a criminal and she was on the right-side-of-the-law, Julian with tears in his eyes says, “Redemption.”  Julian says he fell in love with Alexis, but also liked the idea of proving and becominga better man.  He then says that both of them were trying to break the cycle of violence from their pasts, and he wished they had both been able to do so – in a heavy-dose-of-reality moment for Julexis.

The session ends, and Julian and Alexis walk to the hospital elevator, and he agrees to go to more sessions with her, saying that they both have issues to address so they can move on with their lives.  Alexis thanks Julian and offers one day to repay this favor.

In these scenes, William deVry and Nancy Lee Grahn brought the heartfelt emotions and the internal conflict that has made Julexis a dynamic duo on GH.   Now with Julian seemingly moving on with Kim (Tamara Braun), and Alexis wanting a fresh start, will these joint therapy sessions enable them to do that  … or perhaps can they resolve the issues that have plagued them, and move on with each other, and grow from it?

So, do you think this is the true end of the road for Julexis?  What did you think of the performances of Will and Nancy?  Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
