General Hospital’s Kelly Sullivan (Kate/Connie) and Julie Marie Berman (Lulu) chatted with Michael Fairman on the red carpet at the 39th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards. Kelly discussed the challenges of playing Kate/Connie, but how she is relishing her story, as Michael says an Emmy nom may be in her future. Julie reveals that Lante’s lack of story is hard on their fans when she has such a good chemistry with Dominic Zamprogna (Dante). She also recalls what it was like winning her Daytime Emmys!

What a fun quick interview, Michael. Julie and Kelly were so cute with you and very natural. You always bring out the best in the stars, and they enjoy you as well. I liked Kelly’s dress also.

“Kelly just said an inappropriate word?” At the Emmys? Really? If this tacky, self-centered, ditzy wench gets an Emmy, it’ll be as much of a joke as when Wright got hers. Most of it is based on brown-nosing anyway, and Sullivan certainly does enough of that, as evidenced in this video and elsewhere.

This nobody doesn’t deserve further publicity. She can’t act her way out of a paper bag, yet her ego is big enough to swallow the entire cast of GH whole. Enough pimping already! It’s not going to make those of us with taste accept this debacle, and the show’s consistently low ratings prove that people aren’t.

I’m all for saving soaps, but that doesn’t mean I have to swallow subpar acting. Maurice Benard doesn’t deserve this crappy storyline, or to be co-starring opposite someone who hasn’t got a flipping clue what she’s doing and only weighs him down.

Are you NUTS? KeSu has had an incredible role with Kate/Connie and she’s done a helluva job with it! GH is, and always has been the superior soap, which is why IT IS STILL ON.

What I am is entitled to my opinion, and it really doesn’t matter to me whether you or anyone else agrees with it or not. GH won’t be on for long if they keep this arrogant *itch on. Ratings don’t lie, and GH’s should be much higher if Sullivan is as great as you claim she is.

So a person is nuts if they think KSu sucks? Ever think that people think that anyone who likes Kelly’s acting is NUTS? Soaps have always and will always be a hot bed of opinions and Em happened to share hers rather politely. GH may have always been the superior soap but it sinking fast with KSu at the helm, despite Ron and Frank’s “magic”.

i love Kelly Sullivans acting. i think she does a wonderful job. She has done an amazing job as Kate/Connie and deserves everything she works so hard to accomplish. she is doing this for the fans and not for herself. she really loves her fans and her job. she worked so hard to get were she is and to be doing what she loves. anyone that driven gets an A in my book.
i also love Julie been watching her since she started on GH and she does an amazing job as well. they could not have casted a better person to play LuLu.
It takes an entire cast to make a show not just 2 people. The cast and crew are wonderful and work so hard to keep the fans coming back for more.

great interview Michael!

kelly sullivan seems like a sweet person. i really wanted to like her acting and in the beginning, i thought she was solid. as soon as the D.I.D. storyline started, she just wasn’t cutting it for me. it was so damn unbelievable and i realize some of this is the subject matter itself. however, she just wasn’t rising to the mark the way, say, erika slezak did so effortlessly on OLTL. i wasn’t comparing, either. but i can’t help but think kelly’s just too green to tackle such a heavy storyline.

sonny was so watchable around other characters, but when stuck in this ConKate storyline he’s boring as hell. i hope the story wraps and kelly can move on to other things.

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital. Felix says give it two weeks and she will do something to mess things up.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

Scene after scene, Kelly Thiebaud has lit up the screen and put the “feisty” back onto the ABC soap opera.  As an actress, Kelly can go from the heavy drama, to the comedic, to the sexy, all with ease.

In the March 30th issue of Soap Opera Digest, Thiebaud said of her return:  “Frank Valentini reached out to me the beginning of the year and mentioned that the writers wanted to bring me back for a bit.  I said,’Of course, I will,  I would love nothing more than that!”‘ I just really connect with Britt and have a blast playing her.”

So let us know, have you been enjoying the return of Kelly as Dr. Britt Westbourne, thus far? What do you think Britt is up to? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alexis Breaks Three Years of Sobriety, Carly Locks Up Nelle, Nikolas & Liz Continue to Reconnect

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, after downing a drink at a bar, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) held off on a second one, but unfortunately and sadly lost her sobriety of three years.  When she called people in her life to come get her out of the bar and home,  no one was available, so she called none other than her ex Julian (William deVry).

And it was Julian to the rescue, who also took the legal eagle to an AA meeting. The car ride between them was not all pleasant, especially when Alexis went down memory lane for a moment and recalled when Julian held a knife at her throat.  After the fallout with Neil (Joe Flanagan), she wondered why she ruins all her relationships … consistently.

Elsewhere. Michael (Chad Duell) is trying to get Nelle (Chloe Lanier) to sign and authorize the heart defect surgery on Wiley.  Michael said they  need both parents signature on the consent forms and Nelle is refusing to sign.  When Carly (Laura Wright) finds out she is ready to handle Nelle and goes up on the hospital rooftop to confront her.   Once there, she tells Nelle this is her chance to get people over to her side by signing the consent to let her son have the surgery he needs.  Carly also tells her that Wiley is her leverage.  If she lets her son die, she has nothing to hold over everybody.  And still, after all of that, Nelle refuses to sign.  So, resourceful Carly locks Nelle in and up on the roof so she can’t leave!  Will Nelle come to her senses for a few seconds and sign the papers?  Previously, Nelle told Michael her kidney surgery basically ruined her life, so she does not want to do the same thing to their son.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) is worried about Cameron (William Lipton) and so she sets him up with a therapy session with Neil.  Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) happens by the hospital after getting Ava (Maura West) squared away with Franco (Roger Howarth) for his portrait painting of her in the art room.  He runs into Liz and she shares her concerns for Cameron, and how familiar it is to he,r and how traumatized he must be – having two incidents where he was basically kidnapped within a years time.  She bring up how when she was raped when she was younger that Emily, Lucky and Nikolas were there for her.  Are Nikolas and Liz growing closer again?  Are Ava and Franco?
