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… Read more »

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.… Read more »

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… Read more »

Cameron Mathison Talks Strangest Shirtless Scenes, Favorite Susan Lucci Moment & More On ‘7 Questions With Steve & Brad’

On the latest installment of Steve Burton (Jason) and Bradford Anderson’s (Spinelli) You Tube series, 7 Questions with Steve and Brad, the General Hospital stars welcome the newest addition to their Port Charles family, Cameron Mathison.

Mathison is set to debut this summer back on ABC daytime in a role still under wraps, after previously playing All My Children’s Ryan Lavery and wrapping up his co-hosting gig on Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family.

In the rapid fire sequence of questions from Burton and Anderson, Cameron fielded questions such as what was his strangest take-off-your-shirt moment in soaps, his favorite Susan Lucci moment (where in story, Ryan for a short time was romantically linked to Erica Kane), plus Mathison fessed up on his favorite hosting gig, if he bakes at home, and more.

Watch the enlightening and fun conversation here.

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Touches on Racial Profiling, Social Injustice and Bias In Key Scenes with Portia and Jordan

This week ABC’s General Hospital took the opportunity to write in to their scripts and story, the issue that has been so prevalent in our country now and for decades that of racial profiling, injustice, bias, gender equality and more rolled into scenes featuring: Brook Kerr (Portia), Briana Nicole Henry (Jordan), Sydney Mikala (Trina) and William Lipton (Cameron).

When Portia comes to the boxing gym for a workout and comes upon Jordan hitting the boxing bag hard over the the incident with Cameron in the hospital garage, it spurs a greater conversation.

Jordan tells Portia about the situation that arose with Cameron and a gun, and Portia says she heard about it.  Jordan knows if Cameron’s skin was a different color, she may not have been able to de-escalate the situation and talk her officers down, if she had not arrived on the scene in the nick of time.

This launches the two women into an important conversation on racial profiling, social injustice, white privilege and gender bias that they have found themselves dealing with in their professions (Portia is a doctor and Jordan the police commissioner) and their children’s lives.

Later in another scene, Trina reminds Cameron how they, along with Joss (Eden McCoy) were pulled over by a cop last summer when they were driving around the backroads.  She goes on to say when Cameron questioned why they were being stopped, it scared her.  She feels if Joss and Cam were not there, she would have likely been pulled out of the car and pinned to the ground by the cop.  Trina notes she put aside her fear and never said anything to them, because they would never understand.  Trina tells Cam he needs to realize how lucky he was the other night when nothing happened to him after his run in with police.

You can watch the conversation below in scenes with Briana Nicole Henry and Brooke Kerr.

Then let us know, did you like how GH wove this social message into the story?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.
