Missing Kimberly McCullough on your screen as Robin as much as we are?  Well, today, Kimberly released a brand new video interview in her series of farewell features with the cast, but this time there was a twist!  Kimberly was the interviewee and her long time co-star, Jason Thompson (Patrick) was the interviewer!  Thompson asked the beloved actress a series of questions that fans have wanted to know from her, including how she felt about her last scene, meeting Jason Thompson for the first time, if she is still watching GH and the way Robin’s exit strategy was played out and much more!

Here are some of Kimberly’s comments on some subjects that many want to know!

Kimberly on how she felt her final scene turned-out:   “I felt it was really rushed.   I don’t feel like I did a good job and a lot of that is they literally broke for lunch right before our last scene, and it totally stopped the momentum of what was going on with us, and then we had to jump right back in and connect again.  And then we re-wrote it right before, and I was still trying to get a handle on what we were saying.  I felt really rushed and looking back maybe that is a good thing because that was what Robin was feeling ( speaking in regards to being trapped in the lab) , like I am trying to catch up, and I don’t know what is really going on.  But when it was over I was like, “Oh man, I wish I could do that again.”

Kimberly on if she is watching GH since she has been gone, and what she thinks of the show now: “I think everyone is doing an incredible job right now.  It’s obvious that Frank Valentini has lit a fire under everyone’s ass, and I really like that.  Sometimes I go, “Do I really want to watch it?” And, sometimes it makes me to sad to watch it.”

Kimberly on how she felt about Robin’s exit story: “I’m really proud of you, Jason, and how you handled it.  I feel like in a way that weight and burden of the story was put on you and Finola Hughes (Anna) because it happened so fast. I can’t really speak to why it happened the way it did.  I am not the writer and I am not the producer, but I am proud in the way it was handled and in a way, at this point it doesn’t matter how I feel about it, because it’s over.  All I can do now is be grateful for the time I had there and any other feelings …there is no point.”

Now after reading these comments after the jump make sure to watch this very honest and direct interview as Kimberly addresses your questions with an assist from her Port Charles leading man!

That was great:) Thank you MF for the video of KM and JT. THey’re one of the main reasons I’ve stayed loyal to GH, when it was all mob this and mob that. I love a great romance and glad to see it from the beginning. Have watched GH since the 80’s and was happy to see this wonderful romance unfold w/Patrick. Romance, marriage and baby Emma. It was nice that Robin’s life wasn’t over b/c of hiv–I had thought thats where that storyline would go when 1st introduced. Anyway, both Robin and KM continued to bloosom and fullfill most of her dreams, til now (Robin that is).

Anyway, i really enjoy both actors, both good looking, thought they were a couple in real life w/all the chemistry and so comfortable w/each other. But I hear they’re best friends. They seem fun, caring and very sweet. W/each other and their fans. I enjoy both thoroughly as great actors and hope they con’t to shine. Love Finola too. Very talented group and have LOVED watching them over the yrs.

I miss Kimberly as Robin, and I hope GH has a long future on the air,and hopefully she will come back an visit.

Well said!

Loved it! Thank you! Will miss Robin!

I for one, am glad it was done the way it was. I was not looking for the long goodbye from her illness. And all the naysayers………………this way, the body in the shape that it was in, Robin CAN return later. THE DOOR WAS LEFT OPEN…….

That was another good interview thank you . We miss Kimberly very much but, know what ever she does she will be successful and good luck to her.

Kimberely will be missed. I wish her all the best in the directing career. Too bad that with her exit from the show we didnot had any good scenes with her family. Did her dad even see his sil or grandchild? Why did they have to drag this storyline down by making it about Jason? Why did they have to have Liz be the one to tell Emma about her mother. Anna,Mac an dPatrick could have done this, that is what family does for family. Liz and Jason inserted in this story was not necessary. It just took away from the real story. Too bad Rick is only staying a short time. But of course we have to have airtime for those OLTL characters who’s show was cancel. I wish the EP and writer would remenber this is GH. OLTL had their ending, now let GH have their”s

Eva LaRue Makes Her ‘General Hospital’ Debut: What Were Your First Impressions of Natalia Rogers-Ramirez?

On the Monday, February 26th episode of General Hospital, former All My Children favorite, Eva LaRue (ex-Maria Santos), made her first appearance in her new recurring role of Blaze’s (Jacqueline Grace Lopez) mother, Natalia Rogers-Ramirez.

In key scenes, as Kristina (Kate Mansi) and Blaze are happy after spending the night together, Kristina is in for a shock when she is still in bed and the door opens and Blaze’s mother, Natalia strolls in seemingly oblivious to walked she just walked in.

Natalia announces, “Alison, Mommy’s here!” Then, Natalia looks over and sees Kristina in bed and both women are a bit startled. Kristina introduces herself to “Mrs. Rogers-Ramirez.” However, Natalia corrects her and says it’s “Miss.”

Next, Blaze walks into the room still in her robe. She is very shocked that her mother arrived in Port Charles much earlier than expected. Natalia wants an explanation of just what she walked in on. It is then, Kristina concocts a story and explains they had a girls’ night, and it got late so Alison let her crash.

Natalia seems to buy into Kristina’s lies. Blaze starts to argue with her mother over the non-vegan sandals her mother brought her from Puerto Rico and her grandmother’s pudding, which she has told her in the past she dislikes. Kristina pipes in that the reason Alison doesn’t like it, is because of the texture and the same goes for avocado and flan. Natalia says she thinks she knows her own daughter.

Then, Blaze gets more upset and asks Kristina to stay and be by her side. Blaze announces that she and Kristina are more than just friends. We already know that Natalia is from a very conservative background, so we anticipate on tomorrow’s episode of GH, she won’t approve finding out her daughter is gay. Stay-tuned.

So, were you happy to see Eva LaRue back on daytime and now on General Hospital? What were you first impressions of her new character Natalia Rogers-Ramirez? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first, check out the scenes from her arrival below,

General Hospital’s William Lipton to Star in Music Drama Series ‘The Runarounds’ From ‘Outer Banks’ Creators

This sounds like a perfect starring vehicle for the multi-talented William Lipton (Cameron Webber), who recently made a brief return to General Hospital for his best friend, Spencer Cassadine’s (the exited Nicholas Chavez) gravesite memorial service.

Now comes word that Lipton is set to star in a new series in the works entitled The Runarounds. If that name sounds familiar, it’s because The Runarounds is the name of the band seen in season three of Netflix’s popular series, Outer Banks. 

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Amazon has given the green light to an eight-episode, straight-to-series order for The Runarounds which premise features the story of a post-high school band as they try to make it big.

The fictional drama is inspired by the real life band of the same name and will star its group’s members: William Lipton, Axel Ellis, Jeremy Yun, Zendé Murdock and Jesse Golliher.

The Runarounds will be set and film in Wilmington, North Carolina, where Outer Banks was also shot. Skydance Television is the studio behind the series. Outer Banks creators Josh Pate, Joshua Pate, and Shannon Burke will bring this project to life.

Lipton took to his Instagram on Monday, once the news of the series was revealed, expressing, “Where are we going, fellas? To the top, Johnny!” Immediately GH co-stars past and present shared their congratulations to William including: Sydney Mikayla (ex-Trina Robinson) and Enzo De Angelis, who plays Lipton’s brother, Aiden on GH.

 

In a statement, Vernon Sanders, head of television at Amazon MGM Studios, expressed: “When we first met with Jonas and Skydance about The Runarounds, it was immediately clear that they brought us a special show featuring an incredibly talented cast and real-life band. We are very much looking forward to sharing the exhilarating journey of The Runarounds with our global Prime Video customers.”

The Runarounds were actually formed as a band back in 2021, when Jonas Pate issued a casting call looking for a group to appear on Outer Banks. The group first performed together when they played for Pate ahead of appearing in season three after being selected from a more than 5,000 musicians who responded to the call.

No word yet on when The Runarounds will be released.

So, excited for this opportunity for William Lipton to star in this music drama? Hope he returns to GH down the line? Comment below.
