In a heartfelt tweet early AM Monday, Jack Wagner (Ex-Frisco, GH, Ex-Nick, B&B) who has been very public about his struggles with addiction and alcohol over the years, sent out an important tweet to his followers sharing his fear and his concerns for his 21-year-old younget son, Harrison.

In a update two hours ago, Wagner tweeted that his son has indeed been in contact! That is good news.  Jack shared to all: “Harrisons been in touch, he’s 21 & in charge of his life, ty for the lv & prayers, please continue to share your struggles, it helps us all.”

The talented actor/singer, who has been most recenly starring in the Hallmark Channel series, When Calls The Heart and former wife, Kristina Wagner (Felicia, GH) are Harrison’s parents. In his initial post, Wagner began:  “I’m going to ask those who want to share their fears, addictions & struggles to do so w me via Twitter. We can face them 2gether, I’ll start.  I fear for my youngest sons safety. Harrison has struggled w drugs & alcohol just as I did when I was younger. He’s relapsed & is MIA 5days.”

Following that personal family news, several followers of Wagner took him up on his statement and reached out to them with their current fears and struggles with addiction, and in a very heart-warming way, Jack has been responding to each with a personal tweet back.

Out thoughts are with Jack. Kristina and Harrison at this time, and we hope for all concerned this comes to a safe conclusion shortly during this family crisis.

I had a brother who was drug addict, my parents did nothing when he stole from them One day he came to my house and stole while we were out with our kids. Well I decided to do something because I did not want to get a call at 3 am saying they found my brother. So I told him he returns everything and he had till Monday to get in a rehab or I was pressing charges, a lot was exchanged between us but in the end I told him I would do it because I love him and want him to live a long life. Anyway 30 years later he has been drug free married and has 4 beautiful children and his own business. Hang in there guys but also you have to be tough and stick to whatever ultimatum you give him. I will be praying for him and his family.

Jack & Kristina, my prayers are with you & your family. My daughter relapsed about a month ago. She is getting back on track, thank God. She has a one year old son, and I actually took him to a motel for three days so that she and the horrible, violent man she was hanging out with couldn’t find us. I thank God my daughter is safe, and will pray that your son will be, too.

My dear college friend lost her oldest son to addiction, drugs and depression. My former son-in-law has been battling his demons of addiction, anxiety and depression for the past almost 5 years. Sadly it cost him his wife and son and the family they could’ve built together. He tries desperately to get better but has not yet met with success. Thankfully he is currently in a long term care facility and as always we pray for the best outcome possible for him and for my grandson. My heart hurts to see such struggle and pain. I will be holding you, Kristina and your son close in my heart and prayers. Pray for strength, wisdom,peace and healing for all.

His son probably got in touch with him and told him to stop putting his personal biz on blast.

I guess I am the only person who thinks that Jack posting his son’s troubles on Twitter for the whole world to know is a huge invasion of privacy. I understand that celebrities like to live their lives online but his son may not feel that way. Regardless of his issues, he has a right to privacy. I would be appalled if my family member broadcast my problems for the world to know.

Totally Agree!
JW says “he’s 21 & in charge of his life” but spreads his business everywhere. Sad for Harrison.

Celia

I certainly can understand what you are saying, tatiana. Our privacy should be respected. But, it could be that Jack acted out of desperation. As a mother, I do feel that he probably felt the NEED to find his son no matter what. Better safe than sorry; pardon the cliche’.
Perhaps, the public, being made aware of his sons ‘issues’ with drugs was the incentive to draw him out. We do not know.
For a parent who is in that helpless position, he probably thought, “Privacy be damned”. One’s child never stops being one’s child, regardless his/her age. Just my opinion.

Jack probably did this out of desperation/public intervention. Whatever saves the kids life.

Celia

Hi, tatiana.
I can certainly appreciate your sentiment. Our privacy should be respected.
At the same time, as a mother, I can also understand that Jack may have acted out of desperation.
We, as parents, lose sight of what’s right or wrong…..or, what’s proper, when our children’s safety is at stake.
Jack, I am sure, felt the need to find his son; better safe than sorry…..pardon the cliche’.
Perhaps, making it public was the incentive to draw his son out to prevent a tragedy. All that matters is that he has been found. We do not know the details.
One only hopes, something drastic will be done to help this ‘guy-child’. In that situation ( in which I hope I or my husband will never find ourselves), I, too, would have said, “Privacy be damned”.
Our children do not stop being our children…..or, we do not stop loving them once they reach majority.
Just my opinion. Take care.

Another opinion that someone suggested was that his son’s disappearance and/or addiction issues were going to be reported by the paparazzi so the Wagners were trying to get ahead of it. Either way, I could never live with this complete lack of privacy.

Celia

I am so sorry, but my first post was not going through and when it disappeared, I had to improvise with another.
Forgive me for boring you guys with my double unintentional post.

Celia

You are so right, tatiana. I couldn’t either. But, lack of privacy for these celebrities goes with the territory. It’s a damned if you do and damned if you don’t kind of life.

His intentions was to help others and reach out to his son.He was worried about his son.He probably texted and called first and got no response so he used social media since his son is on twitter.

Better Days Ahead!! Stop slamming Jack and Kristina for sharing since this was important to them. Support and encouragement when in crisis helps to get through it easier. They love their son and it is great to be willing to share and not be ashamed. We all struggle with different issues in this life and it is a sign of strength to come forward and speak public about it! We are all one family in God’s eyes so Love and Peace please prevail…May Harrison and all struggling addicts find comfort and solace…Amen

GH’s Kathleen Gati and Michelle Stafford Deliver The Power Performance of The Week!

A grieving mother and sister found themselves stuck in a revenge plot gone haywire, that provided the backdrop in which two accomplished actresses; Kathleen Gati (Liesl) and Michelle Stafford (Nina) were able to shine on episodes of General Hospital.

Although Peter’s kidnapping went on far too long, and fans on social media have their own viewpoints as to what they think of Mr. August aka Henrik Faison (Wes Ramsey), the final week of taking Peter hostage to torment him as payback for his part in Nathan’s death; gave Gati and Stafford scenes from the comedic, to the emotional, to the cray-cray, and more..

On Thursday’s episode, Nina is trying to talk down Liesl from torching the place, but Liesl is becoming more unhinged and more grief-stricken.  She says to Nina, “I lost my son.  I gave Nathan up to protect him.  I spent my life not even daring to gaze in his direction for fear that Cesar would take him.  I never wanted my son to be like him, and now my beautiful boy is buried in the ground, while the other son is still breathing!  So, I must finish this my way, Nina  …  with or without you!”

Pleading, an emotional Nina responds: “Aunt Liesl, you are not the only one who lost time with Nathan.  I did, too.  I missed him growing up.  I missed his childhood, and seeing the incredible man he turned into.  I feel his absence and I feel the loss every second of every day.  I hate Faison, and I will for the rest of my life, and I hate Anna (Finola Hughes) just like you did, but that does not justify what I have done… being an accomplice in this crazy revenge.  None of that is going to bring my brother back.”   Nina goes on to say:  “I knew J would not want his mother grieving alone. This isn’t grief anymore … this is madness.”

Obrecht with rage and sadness in her eyes says, “The brightest souls like my Nathan are extinguished.”  And from there, as viewers know by now, Liesl sets the fire, which sets the stage for Nina’s rescue, and the Friday cliffhanger of Finn (Michael Easton) having to decide whether to go in the burning building and get Peter out, or not.

Later on the pier, a stoic, but grief-stricken Liesl is arrested.  She spitefully tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan (Vinessa Antoine), “Tell Anna something for me: ‘Now we are even!”‘

Earlier in the week, we saw how Kathleen Gati navigated the comedic yet dramatic moments as she had to knock Franco (Roger Howarth) out, while she was trying to get back to Spoon Island, as he realized Obrecht was the guilty party who took Peter.

Gati has made Obrecht, this one-of-a-kind character, come to life, no matter what the circumstances the writers put her in.  And as for Michelle Stafford, when Nina spoke of her brother and the loss she continues to feel, it was one of the most on-the-money moments for anyone who has lost a sibling that they looked to.

So, even through some of the absurdity of the circumstances, and as they were portraying two women trying to figure their way out of the mess they created,  Gati and Stafford never faltered as they committed to the material, and delivered this week’s Power Performance of the Week.

Share your thoughts on the performances of Kathleen and Michelle and what stood out to you via the comment section below.

Does GH’s Margaux Have A Connection To Someone In Port Charles? If So, Who?

This week, General Hospital viewers saw that the ABC daytime drama series is teasing a potential pairing of Drew (Billy Miller) and the new district attorney in town, Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Hendrickson), after the two characters run into each other at a concession stand at the cancelled baseball game.

As fans of the soap genre know, Miller and Hendrickson also played former love interests on The Young and the Restless as Billy Abbott and Chloe Mitchell.

During Hendrickson’s first #AskGH live Twitter Q&A when asked: “Is your character connected to someone on the show?”  Elizabeth responded: “As of now Margaux is new to town … but you never know, there may be some connection that has not be revealed yet :)”

That tweet has left fans speculating if perhaps Margaux, has an ex in Port Charles, is tied to a major family in someway, or perhaps has some legal trouble past?

Recently on GH. when Chase (Josh Swickard) arrived on the scene as the new cop (following Nathan’s (Ryan Paevey) untimely death), it was later revealed that he was actually the half-brother to Finn (Michael Easton).  And as we know in the soaps, connections are usually the key to more long term success in a role, rather than being just a standalone character, but there have been exceptions.

So, who would you like to see Margaux have a connection to on GH?  What do you think will happen with her character? Comment below.
