General Hospital (Ex-Connie) and The Young and the Restless (Ex-Sage) Kelly Sullivan has been busy since departing the world of daytime.  She is about to be seen in the new Tyler Perry primetime series, Too Close To Home on TLC.  The show makes its debut on Monday August 22nd at 9PM ET/8PM CT.

In Too Close To Home, Sullivan plays a single mom named Bonnie, who is the oldest of three sisters.  Bonnie work in a diner as waitress and has four kids.  However, she lives in a rundown trailer park in Happy, Alabama.

Bonnie’s other sisters include: Shelby (Brooke Anne Smith) who is addicted to drugs, and middle sis Anna (Danielle Savre} who comes back to Alabama following her involvement with a sex scandal in Washington D.C!

Sullivan told TV Insider on her role: “Bonnie and her family represent the forgotten ones, people who have been dealt a really rough hand in life, people who don’t have a voice. And that is a big part of America.”  She added, “This is a story about what happens when the s–t hits the fan—and who bounces back and who can’t handle it. It’s real and it’s raw.”

As to how soapy Too Close To Home is? Kelly teased: “Oh don’t worry! Everybody in Happy has their skeletons—and when they are revealed, it is spine-tingling.”

Below watch Kelly talk the difference of working on a daytime soap vs working on the nighttime series and more with the cast at the media screening in Atlanta.  Then let us know if you are looking forward to seeing Kelly in her new role on Too Close To Home?

I watched and will watch the next episode. I have always liked Kelly and thought she was good in her role as a trailer park mom to her sister’s kids.

Elsewhere, Franco is up to trying to figure out why “Kevin” suddenly dumped him as a patient, and if anyone can come across the lock box in “Kevin’s” office and open it up, therein lies clue to the serial killer’s movesand victims.

But will Port Charles continue to think that “Kevin” is having some sort of breakdown over the anniversary of his twin brother, Ryan’s “death” and heinous killing spree years ago? Will anyone figure out the real Kevin is locked up in a straight-jacket at Ferncliff?

Check out this week’s promo for GH below, and then let us know; who you think will truly be Ryan’s next victim, or will he finally be caught?  And, what have you thought of the performances of Jon Lindstrom in this storyline? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Anna Goes Blind … What Is The Cause? Franco Is Kicked To The Curb As “Kevin’s” Patient

Viewers of ABC’s General Hospital were in for a twist on Friday’s episode, when Anna Devane suddenly and inexplicably goes blind!  It is a terrifying moment for Anna and throughout the first part of this new arc, played beautifully by Finola Hughes.

But what is the cause of her sudden blindness? After Anna is brought to ‘General Hospital’ by her son, Peter (Wes Ramsey), and Finn (Michael Easton) and Griffin (Matt Cohen) are there to try to calm her down and to try to figure out what is wrong with her, Griffin runs some tests.

Meanwhile, Griffin and Finn get into a tiff over Griffin’s lack of bedside manner and his losing his faith. Griffin says its all now about the data, as he is still reeling from Kiki’s murder.

Later, Griffin reveals to Finn and Anna that the tests show that she has experienced a vitreous hemorrhage.  However, he doesn’t know what caused this … or if her vision can be restored.

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, GH co-head writer, Shelly Altman previews of this story for Anna, “What has happened to Anna will lead us to uncover a mystery that affects not only Anna, but several surprisingly unrelated people.”

Meanwhile, Peter meets up with Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) at Kelly’s and tells him what happened to Anna and that she suddenly went blind, but to stay away from his mother.. He also has a warning for Valentin, that whatever Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) has on him will come back to bite him sooner than later, and we all know that Valentin hired Sasha to pose as Nina’s (Michelle Stafford) long-lost daughter, and Obrecht knows it!

And, Franco (Roger Howarth) just may trip upon the lock box in Kevin’s office, that holds the clues to everyone Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) has murdered!  How does that come about? After, Franco runs into a gun-toting Ava (Maura West) on the pier, “Kevin” shows up.  He tells Franco he can no longer be his doctor and he will refer him to someone else.  Franco does not want to end his therapy with Dr. Collins, but it’s of no use in changing “Kevin’s” mind.

When Franco makes his exit, Ryan tells Ava that they should leave Port Charles together and never look back.  Then, Franco breaks in to Kevin’s office at GH, and goes looking for his patient file and that is where we see the lock box.  Will Franco figure out what is going down?

So, what do you think is happening to Anna and why?  Is Franco now in dire straits if Ryan finds him rummaging through “Kevin’s” office?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
