Kelly Monaco on Steve Burton's Exit From GH: "They're Wrapping Up A Nine-Year Relationship!"

Get ready JaSam fans!  General Hospital is prepping the exit storyline for Steve Burton (Jason Morgan) and that means it could spell the end of the road for Jason and Sam, or does it?   General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) spoke to Access Hollywood.com about Burton’s impending exit, where Kelly admitted, “They’re wrapping up a nine-year relationship.”   Monaco also revealed she has an inkling of how Jason will exit Port Charles, and she said it’s likely to be “pretty dramatic.”

Kelly who is getting ready to hit the ballroom dance floor once again in the Dancing with the Stars All-Stars competition which begins a week from this coming Monday on ABC, says thinking about Burton’s last tape date is not easy! “Man, I haven’t even been able to cross that bridge yet. I don’t like goodbyes,” she said. “I’d like to think that he’s just gonna take a little vacation and come back. I know it might be wishful thinking.”

As Kelly begins to pull double-duty, (at a time where she originally thought her workload would be lessened at GH for DWTS prior to the news of Burton’s exit) she sat down with Access Hollywood for a video interview with her dance partner, Val Chmerkovskiy.  Watch the video after the jump, and then let us know how you feel the writers should wrap up Sam and Jason’s story to facilitate Burton’s finale? And if you are Team Kelly all the way to win DWTS?

I love Jason and Sam! I hope that they reunite and find their son. Steve and Kelly have an amazing and rare chemistry that just captivates you and pulls you in. Together they have created an epic soap couple and portrayed a memorable love story. I will miss seeing them onscreen together. I hope JaSam and their son will have time to bond as a family before Steve leaves. I wish the best of luck to Steve in his future endeavors and I am completely 100% Team Kelly for DWTS. I’m so excited to watch her compete again. Best of… Read more »

I used to be a JaSam fan, but the longer they were together, the less I liked them. The final straw was when Jason couldn’t/wouldn’t accept Sam’s baby and basically asked her to abort. That was it…DONE.

Not going to miss Jason and I hope Sam moves on with John. He at least would respect and accept her.

I will miss Steve Burton as Jason because he is a large part of GH. Although I wish him the best of luck with his future I will miss the character of Jason. Hope the door stays open for a return some day. His last day won’t be a happy one for me.

I definitely agree Joan….watching Jason leave GH is gonna be hard for all us die hard GH fans….I wish Steve Burton the best of luck in everything he attempts & I hope they leave the door open for him to come back if things don’t work out for him down in Tennessee…GOD BLESS ya Steve & you will be missed….<3

Steve B is at the heart of this show. It’s going to have an ’empty spot’ when he’s gone. At first, I was not a Jasam fan, but I am now. They are ‘real’….both Jason and Sam are guarded with their feelings and to see them together, the chemistry just works. It’s going to be a very sad day indeed. I prefer to go with what Kelly said and think that he’s just going to be on extended leave. I wish Kelly the very best on DWTS. She’s been my fave from all the seasons. I hope she wins again.… Read more »

Dis agree he is not the heart of the show! Yor are insulting not only the rest of the cast but GH fans that have been with the show from the start! He might think he is but I don’t! The heart is the Hospital and the cast around it. IMO He along with the characters Sonny, and Carly took it away from the Hospital. Along with JFP and Guza. I remember when he was in that accident and he went from a Quatermaine to a Morgan and Luke introduced Sonny a saw a change in the soap that a… Read more »

I have no clue how they are going to send Jason out but the fans deserve something great so I have high hopes.

It’s said that we’re losing “JaSam” after all of these years, but I cannot stand Jason as a stand-alone character. I’m kind of happy he’s departing the series. Now he needs to take Sonny with him.

Well Jason has Spinelli ck. the dna results …And will confirm that Sam’s baby isn’t dead….And in the process find out that he is the father not his crazy brother Franco…. Reveal all this too Sam & make her & him very happy….Then Jason has to come back to every so often to his son….And doesn’t blame Jason for the death of her son & couldn’t sign the divorce papers…..That’s why she ran over his apt. to tell him but saw Jason kissing Elizabeth ……I think everything will end on a happy note & it will be intense……………….I don’t know… Read more »

Kelly and Steve’s chemistry works together so well in portraying JaSam in love or in angst. I’m going with Kelly’s way of coping which is hoping that Steve is just going on an extended vacation and that he will be back one day to spread some Stelly Magic for the JaSam fans on
screen in the future.

Here’s hoping RC writes JaSam something befitting the love their portrayer’s have showcased in such an adorable way over the years as a parting gift to their fans.

Of course wishing Kelly the best for DWTS!

I will miss Steve Burton. He has been a huge part of GH for so many year’s. I love Sam with John McBain . When those two look into each other’s eye’s up close I see a passion I never noticed with her and Jason. When Jason is gone I will miss his character but I will be able to carry on with Sam and John. Those two are red hot together. If Steve were to stay and continued on with Elizabeth he would of had a boring storyline. Miss goody two shoes is a bore. She never could accept… Read more »

Not sure Sam being with John ?????? The other day John looked at a picture of Natalie & Liam that he carry’s with him all the time…..If he is with Sam he can’t simply forget them….Natalie & Liam are alway’s in John’s mind….Are a big chunk of his life…

For sure! John had a 9-year relationship with Natalie, too! And it’s not over, he’s still in love with her! So Melissa Archer as Natalie has simply GOT to come to GH!

I wish Steve all the best and will miss his “relationship” with Kelly. It would be good to recast Jason because GH has lost so many Quartermaines. With regards to Kelly on DWTS I won’t be watching because I’m boycotting ABC except for GH. Won’t vote online either because votes are counted as viewers.

After nine years and its over, dont see she’ll have much of anything with John in my strong opinion. I also think fans arent going for it so they’re gone.
General Hospital needed Sonny & Jason as a team, dont see much of future without it.

Wishing SB the very best with his family. I will miss the chemistry between him and and Sam and no one could talk to him like Molly. I just hope they RC let him leave on a happy note, and noway will I look a Sam and McPain pairing can’t stomach it.

I agree Jason & Sam deserve to be a family with their son before Steve Burton leaves.
Wouldn’t be able to stomach Sam & McBain together.
Hope Steve Burton isn’t gone for long don’t want Jason Morgan to miss to much of his son’s life like he did with his late son Jake.

Ummm gotta say for some of the suppose great John and how he is with Sam fans. As a MASSIVE fan of Kelly/Sam how the hell can anybody want her with his lame ass. If you watched OLTL he aint neva do ish for his girlfriend ever. WAIT HE CHEATED ON THEM. Thats what John does to his girlfriends. And this dude tossed away his family cause they weren’t around. So now we r suppose to want Sam stuck in that. REALY So you want her in some dumb ass fight over John instead of living a life free of… Read more »

I don’t think John is ugly…..Sam & Jason might have their happy ending.. Spinelli investagation about Sam’s baby which Jason told him to find out about..The blood test doesn’t match HMMMMMMMM….The truth will come out & maybe Jason & Sam will ride out in the sunset together..Or not ……Or just Jason and it will end on a happy note…I didn’t read were Natalie is coming to GH?????? Where did you read this??? I alway’s liked John with Natalie & never considered anyone else…

I will truly miss Steve playing our beloved Jason Morgan. He has really carried the show in a big way all these years. I’ve enjoyed watching him all of his 21 years on GH. But my all time favorite story lines have been these past 9 years when the heart throb Jason Morgan met and fell deeply in love with the beautiful Sam Mc Call!! What a hot and magnetizing couple they have been. I’ve watched GH for many many years, and the JASAM COUPLE have had the most funny, adventurest, exciting, and HOTTEST story lines on the show, until… Read more »

I’m hoping that the writers will please write a very beautiful love story, reuniting Sam and Jason with their baby son for a special ending to the JASAM LOVE STORY IT’S BEEN FOR 9 YEARS! Please do this for all the Jasm fans that have so patiently waited for this great couple to marry and have their own child. No matter what, I’m sure sooooooooo many tears will be shed saying goodbye to our beloved Jason Morgan, and our beautiful JASAM COUPLE. Get this family together with so much love and happiness before Steve leaves the show! What a sad… Read more »

If Jason is killed off and not going to be replaced, I’m not watching General Hospital anymore and I have watched for many, many years.
Seems everybody who leaves, for whatever reason, has to be killed. There’s got to be something better for people who exit General Hospital.

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And … make sure to wish Nancy a ‘happy 25th’ via the comment section below.

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.
