Fan favorite Kassie DePaiva (Blair Cramer, OLTL & GH) took to her blog on her website KassieDePaiva.com to share her sentiments and the outpouring of love she has felt from her fans, and getting to work with the cast and crew of General Hospital, as she just taped some new scenes that she teases! In addition, Kassie also touches upon the devastation in the New York area from Hurricane/Superstorm Sandy!  Below are Kassie’s words …

Kassie DePaiva: “What tough week New York City had and the surrounding areas.  Such loss and devastation to one of the greatest areas in this country.  But New York is great and it’s people are resilient and it will come back… We were safe and had power. Susan Batten and Truitt stayed for a couple of nights until their power was restored. My time at General Hospital was postponed for a week… Which gave me more time to learn my lines … But I was eagerly awaiting a flight to Los Angeles.  I finally flew out on Sunday and I worked all day on Monday. I must say I was deeply moved by the show of appreciation from my fans this time around at General Hospital. ”

“I received three dozen gorgeous longstem red roses, a cute little stuffed animal, a box of chocolates, many beautiful balloons, and another bouquet of gorgeous flowers. I don’t think in my 19 years at One Life to live I have ever received that much love in one day. I can’t thank you enough. Here is what one note said:  ‘Always remember your fans recognize and appreciate all your work that you put into creating Blair Cramer.  We love you and welcome you back to the role that was meant for you. Team TnB’ers Unforgettable.'”

“It was truly too sweet and I so appreciate it. You guys are unforgettable!!!! You know I love soaps. You know I loved One Life to Live. You know I love playing Blair. Thank you all for supporting my career for so long. I hope everyone will be happy with this next little stint on General Hospital.  Most of the time was spent with Robin Christopher (Skye), Florencia Lozano (Tea), Laura Wright (Carly)…. Three incredibly talented powerful women that I have so enjoyed sharing the stage with And most importantly my life with. I have truly been blessed and this week I am feeling most grateful for all the goodness and good people in my world.”

So are you happy to know that Kassie has taped more scenes in Port Charles?  Are you looking forward to seeing scenes between Blair, Skye, Tea and Carly?  Let us know!

I can not wait to see Blair’s return to General Hospital. Blair and Tea have a love/hate friendship so the scenes should be fun to watch. Also with Skye and Carly in the mix… Watch your back Blair! Kassie DePaiva needs a contract on General Hospital and needs to show Carly who Todd’s heart belongs to!

I agree we want the so called old times now and always not just around the anniversary. GH is now the oldest daytime drama still on the air, it needs reapect and love to be shown for it. I have watched it since I was a toddler of the age of 2. I remember it well from age 3 on. I wish the beloved characters from the beginning were all still alive to be a part of the Anniversary, I also love that our beloved OLTL characters are still dong their part to keep it going through GH.

I cant wait for Kassie to bring blair back to gh. Blair is one of my favorite soap characters an i love TnB together. Blair, Skye, and Carly, Tea in scenes together is a dream come true. While i am not a carly fan i did LOVE the friend chemistry between blair and carly. I hope they can become like Viki and Dorian on oltl Frenemies!!! This sounds good cant wait!

As much as I love T&B, and the magic Kassie and Roger create together as Todd and Blair, it’s good that she’s getting to mix it up with others on GH. Am especially looking forward to Blair’s scenes with Skye, and would love to see Blair have a storyline mixing it up with the Qs. We adore Kassie and she gives Blair so much heart and warmth…I hope General Hospital makes her a regular member of the cast soon.

Hope there is so much more in store for Kassie DePaiva. Her fans love her, the enthusiam she brings to her role as Blair Cramer is contagious! I can’t wait to see her on the screen where she dominates and embodies the spirit of her craft. Wonderful addition to the show, wonderful asset to General Hospital and truly a joy to behold.

Can’t wait to see Kassie again. I am so looking forward to scenes between such powerhouse women as her, Robin and Florencia. They are all fierce and I love to see a showcase of strong women.

I also hope to see Kassie’s Blair return and face off with Todd because there is simply nothing better than those two. Todd is a freaking mess and Blair needs to come back and help straighten him out again. Todd’s always going to be bad but does he have to be soulless, too? Not as long as Blair is around!

More Blair!

Love Blair and Kassie sounds like the sweetest woman. Four episodes is not enough! Todd and Blair’s one of a kind relationship and a potential feud with Skye could entertain fans throughout GH’s duration. I hope the show-runners make it happen.

LOVE LOVE LOVE Kassie and Blair! She seriously deserves a contract!!!! Looking forward to her scenes with Skye – Todd & Blair vs. Skye was fantastic on OLTL back in 2000/2001. Not a fan of Tea or Carly, but I’m all for their scenes together if it means more Blair coming… and a bonus would be if she shoved them both out the window! Can’t wait for her first scenes to air, and especially for Todd to be in character again. Carly best watch out – she’s got NOTHING on Blair! T&B Forever!!!

I adore her and whenever she is on GH it is the only time I tune in. I have followed her from her beginnings at OLTL and will follow her to GH whenever she is on. Thnx for all the great performances KDP. I can’t wait for her stint this time and just wish GH would keep her on all the time.

Love KDP & I LOVE her portrayal of Blair. I can’t, for the life of me, understand why GH won’t give her a full on contract. I’m fan of both GH & OLTL, but ABC really jipped OLTL fans by promising them Mannings and then only putting RH & KA on contract. And no, putting Todd with Carly is not putting him with a Blair substitute. Blair has a million more heart & growth than Carly while being able to retain her bitch-like qualities. I’m glad RC/Skye is coming back to the show because this would have been the perfect… Read more »

GH has improved a great deal recently; I especially like the resurrection of the Quartermaines.

But a full time return of the Manning family is what would make the show must watch. Todd and Starr aren’t Todd and Starr without Blair; they’re depressing instead of fun.

PLEASE let this be KDP’s last guest stint and her next return be full time’

Gigi
Guest
Gigi

Honestly I’ll be happier to know that she will be on GH more regularly. I stopped watching GH when the storylines changed from family, drama, action and love to mobster, guns and violence. I only tuned back because it was announced that some of our favorite characters from OLTL were headed to GH. I can’t tell you how disappointed I was that Kassie was not part of that cross-over. But like they say, it’s never too late to fix this so here’s hoping the people at ABC make good on their promise and bring Blair Cramer to GH ASAP.

Kathy

Love Kassie being back on GH but 4 days is way too short. Kassie needs to be on GH full time. There is too much Todd and Blair story left to tell, they just found each other again after 8 years of Todd being in captivity and have had obstacles ever since, starting with OLTL getting canceled. TnB and their fans deserve a well told reunion story, and the Mannings should be a new cornerstone family on this show. GH contract for KDP please!!!

I’m extremely Kassie is coming back to GH. I really think RC and FV are missing out on great story lines that could be created by adding KDP to the GH contract! She’s a wonderful actress watch her grow up as Blair Cramer , I’m sure there would be fireworks if they brought back super couple Todd and Blair!!

bringing Kassie DePaiva full time to General Hospital would only be in the show’s best interest. This is not to say I’m particularly a fan of GH but if she comes I will be. There’s nothing like the couple of Todd and Blair which you obviously can’t have without her and I’m willing to hang in there until she appears and then start watching. Hopefully, the powers that be will realize what they are holding right in the palms of their hands and that is a pot full of gold in the form of the Supercouple T&B. ABC has this… Read more »

Ecstatic is more like it. I was happy during her March visit and overjoyed during her July visit. Can you imagine my feelings if she was on permanently? Kassie DePaiva is one in a million and Kassie and Roger together or better known as RoKa and TnB to the many fans that fell under their spell is GREATNESS ON SCREEN.

I’m thrilled beyond words that Kassie’s making a return trip to Port Charles and hope this will lead to a contract. Anyone who watched the Todd and Blair scenes last July could see the chemistry Kassie and Roger possess, as well as Todd’s love for Blair and vice versa. It’s criminal they’re not working together full-time on GH. There aren’t many supercouples left on daytime, but if Kassie gets a contract then one of the few remaining supercouples will have a chance to shine again. Come on, GH, put Todd out of all of his misery…permanently bring back his One… Read more »

Good news for OLTL fans. Kassie coming back to GH will likely break up Carly and Todd. I’m happy about that. Roger Howarth is doing the best acting on GH right now. He is consistent in his role. You hate him and you love him.I don’t think he will be leaving GH any time soon……

I’m excited to have Kassie/Blair and Robin/Skye back, but not too sure about Florencia/Teá. However, those three women, along with Carly, could make for some dynamic story-telling. Just hope they don’t screw it up…

I’m also hoping the ONLY reason Teá is back is to finally get the truth out about Todd’s involvement in the baby switch; then she can go away and never come back. Teá was pretty much ruined for me during all her GH visits with the over-acting, weeping and wailing. (I feel bad about that because I used to like her most of the time on OLTL.)

Blair on GH is like heaven on earth. Fans have been waiting for years for a Todd and Blair payoff. That can only help GH by keeping the One Life to Live fans. Since One Life was cancelled, but actually had the best ratings of the three shows, it makes sense for the TPTB to do this and draw One Lifers in. When GH fans complain about that, I just shake my head. It’s saving the genre and your show to have the MOST fans possible watching! Go ahead Kassie, sign with GH as soon as you are offered, help… Read more »

A GH viewer asked me on twitter why do I continue to campaign when it’s quite evident that ABC will not sign KDP. For a few hours that statement weighted on me and then something amazing happened. Obama stood before thousands in Chicago and appeared before millions on TV and said, “Hope is that stubborn thing inside us that insists, despite all the evidence to the contrary, that something better awaits us, so long as we have the courage to keep reaching, to keep working, to keep fighting.” With one campaign down I am now, more than ever, hopeful and… Read more »

Maybe it’s just me, though I doubt it, but I didn’t read this and thought the poster was comparing campaigning for an actress to be signed to a daytime show equivalent to campaigning for the office of the Presidency. It seems to me that Edna has been campaigning for KDP while at the same time doubting if it was all worth it. I got from her post that on Tuesday she was reminded by a re-elected President that when you feel like giving up or doubting whether something is worth it, if you still have that something inside of you… Read more »

I love all the old returnees and backstories that are being filled in currently on GH. I especially like the stories coming out about AJ but I think Frank and co. need to consider letting the audience in on more of Todd Manning’s background too. Bringing on Kassie De Paiva full time would give the audience a chance to see Todd with his one true babe and learn more about the man and his complicated life. He’s been existing in a bubble. With his “wife” beside him, they could turn Port Charles on it’s ear and face off against AJ… Read more »

General Hospital

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
