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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

General Hospital and ‘H.R. Pufnstuf’s’ Billie Hayes Dead at 96

She was one-of-a-kind, and now actress Billie Hayes has passed away at the age of 96.  Hayes’ family announced her death from natural causes on April 29th at Cedar-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

Hayes was best-known for her unforgettable role as Witchiepoo on the 1969-70 Saturday morning live-action children’s classic H.R. Pufnstuf from Sid and Marty Kroft.

However, daytime fans will remember that then General Hospital executive producer, Gloria Monty, hired Hayes to play the recurring role of the street-smart international spy, Brighton O’Reilly, back in the 80’s series hey day.

GH’s Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) took to Twitter to mourn the loss of Hayes on Monday sharing; “My dear wonderful Billie Hayes has died. Sadly I only got to work with her on GH but it was a magical relationship. Right away Gloria Monty saw something unique and ran with it. I cannot tell you how her passing saddens me.”

In story, Brighton O’Reilly was shot and killed by Victor Cassadine back in 1981. Billie told Soap Opera Digest back in 2003 about her time as an agent on GH, and her exit from the series: “I asked Gloria why she killed me off, and Gloria said, ‘To tell you the truth, Billie, we really hemmed and hawed at it. But I decided to do it for selfish reasons. I knew if I killed O’Reilly there’d be such an abundance of sympathy and love for Scorpio that his stock would go up. And he’s my new leading man!’ I understand why Gloria knocked me off, but I would have loved to have gone on with it because I feel it could have been developed into a fascinating character.”

Sid and Marty Kroft also took to Twitter and expressed:  “Margaret Hamilton (Wizard of Oz) once told us that Billie Hayes was “one of the best witches ever” We couldn’t agree more. Rest in Peace dear friend.”

Billie’s career spanned decades including Broadway, television, motion pictures and voice-over work. In addition, she founded the Los Angeles-based animal rescue nonprofit organization Pet Hope, a cause she had championed since adopting a puppy abandoned in the basement of Broadway’s St. James Theatre during the run of Lil’ Abner in which she was featured in the role of Mammy Yokum.
