In addition, Kimberly weighs-in on the finale of the Nurses’ Ball where Robin’s picture loomed over Patrick and Sabrina, and reveals some emotional moments for her in the Robin/Stone episodes that aired recently on SOAPnet’s GH 50 marathon.

Awesome interview Michael and Kimberly!!! Thank you Michael!!
She ia so great and loved your questions and her answers are so much better because she is talking with you! Love her and hope she does come back soon and absolutely no recasts!

maybe now the Robin/Scrub fans will STFU and quit bashing Teresa and the Sabrina character! KM has given Sabrina and Patrick her seal of approval!

move forward people!

It isn’t just the Scrubs/Robin fans that don’t like the Sabrina Character…It’s not the fans fault that Sabrina is just THAT BORING! not needed of a character!

Crystal
Crystal

I don’t see her as a boring character, she is the exact type of “character” that Robin would want for Patrick and Emma! they are both in the medical field and Emma loves her!

Glad KM wants the Patrick character to continue and flourish on the show even if she is not there!

Cathy

ITA Carm! I hear many who don’t like the character,and has nothing to do with Scrubs. a writer making a character so perfect and making her get ALL Robins life doesn’t work well for many and not just Scrub fans.

Though I do love KMc/Robin, and wish her well on any endeavor she chooses, I still don’t like the pairing of Sabrina and Patrick. She looks like his daughter. Even with his mistakes, his character had grown and matured over the years, and I feel that they have backtracked on who he had become to force their characters to fit. It still doesn’t work. She looked more fitting with Milo than she ever could with Patrick. JMO

I loved Robin, too. Watch GH since I was in middle sshool. However, I strongly disagree, Sabrina is exactly what Patrick needs. I feel he was backtracking with the Britch and it is high time he gets some stability in his life. Sabrina is exactly what he needs-she is smart, talented (I know you heard her amazing voice at the Nurses’ Ball), loving and nurturing among other things. What more can a single father ask for in a partner.

Karen
Karen

All that is happening is the old writers from One Life To Live are re-creating the same old tired characters from that show onto GH. We need some real GH characters. We need Robyn, we need Jason back and get rid of that guy who the writers worshipped on one life to live. And Morgan….the actor playing this character is straight out
It of the one life to live play book. I am sure true fans remember the fantastic character who played Morgan, not this meathead. They would never fight over some bad a tress and oh yes she is from one life to live too. They will pull this show down just like they did their show. Get rid of them get our GH actors and writers back.

Great interview as usual Kim looks great and so do you.. I miss Kim as Robin but, if she isn’t coming back that let Patrick start a new relationship with Sabrina. .

Folks I for one love Patrick and Sabrina pairing. They add sweetness to the story. Keep them together. I also love Robin but Patrick has moved on.

Cathy

Patrick would not move on is He knew Robin was out there. The sweetness is Robin and Patrick.

Cathy
Cathy

Love Kimberly and Robin. There is only one Robin and that is Kimberly.. Now lets get Robin back with HER husband and child. Patrick hasn’t moved on and I don’t believe he loves anyone but Robin. I hear words and see no REAL feelings just people who forced Patrick to move on certainly not the Love storylike Robin and Patrick had. Patrick and robin have a deep connection not a forced couple . I see a writer who used ROBINS FAMILY/CHILD to get nurse liked. No way would Patrick be with anyone but his TRUE LOVE and SOULMATE Robin. Need to see Robin’s story with Patick and Emma finding out alive. I don’t recognize this Patrick and Robin should be in the story with he and Britt now, EMMA needs her mommy Robin and Patrick needs his REAL LOVE Robin. Where is our ROBIN? Many still waiting for Robin to return. Sorry Kimberly your pic should have been there not the disrespectful women who crushed after Patrick and acted innocent. What was disrespectful was having the NB honor Robin while Patrick stood on stage with this new child nurse. Talk about disrespect. Robin is GH legacy and history not the pet nurse.

GET OVER IT!!!

Kim

It would be one thing if Patrick and Sabrina made sense but they don’t. There isn’t any chemistry there. No angst whatsoever which is what a soap couple needs to keep them compelling and not boring. This couple puts me to sleep and I never thought I would say that about the character of Patrick.

Lynn

Chemistry isn’t thtowing yourself at someone in a shower. At first Patrick and Robin didn’t makes sense but eventually there relationship grew on us. Like many of Robin relationships, she was always the sensible one. I feel Sabrina is a wonderful character and given the chance, she may surprise all of you Robin fans. After all I grew up watching Robin grow but it is time to let go.

Kim
Kim

Actually I wasn’t even thinking about chemistry in terms of throwing oneself at someone else. I was thinking of chemistry in the natural way two characters respond to one another and these two characters just don’t have it. Also I am a Patrick and Robin fan. Not just a Robin fan and I just never thought the character of Patrick would become boring if he was paired with someone else after Kimberly left the show but that is exactly what happened. What made the character of Patrick tick and work is now gone and I feel a lot of that is due to the character of Sabrina.

Troy Turner
Troy Turner

This interview has just confirmed what I suspected-Kim is taking advantage of the situation, and doesn’t give a damn. The arrogance she just showed is mind-blowing. She doesn’t want to be there, but yet she doesn’t want Frank to recast Robin. She knows fans are angry, but makes no sign to rectify anything. C’mon Kim, make a decision-you’re either in or out. GH fans deserve better, this is pathetic

Anna
Anna

That’s not what she’s saying at all. She said the recast would never happen because she has been playing this role for almost 30 years, and the producers wouldn’t do that. It’s the same reason you aren’t going to see a Jason recast. There are some characters that are too tied up in their actors for a recast to make sense.
Also, characters come and go on soaps all of the time. Kimberly took a break around 15 years ago and then came back in 2006. She then stayed for six years. Whose to say she won’t come back in a few years and do another six year run?

Yvette
Yvette

Why do we keep blaming KMC. Maybe she is ready to come back and it’s the writers that don’t want to. Especially since Sabrina is their favorite pet now. They already manage to shove her down Patrick’s throat.

Good interview. I agree with her about some things but other comments from her annoyed me. All I know is I need Robin back with Emma. I hate that GH has stuck Robin’s daughter on Suckbrina propping duty. That character sucks so much she literally needs everyone she interacts with telling the audience how awesome she is and how much we should love her. Sorry, not working. It’s actually an EPIC FAIL for me. Note to the writers: If you have to try THAT hard maybe it’s not working and you should move on!

The character of Sabrina is sweet, innocent and caring. What would you rather see, Patrick without a wife and Emma without a mother. R with someone like Britt, who is emotionally disturbed. I have watched GH for 35 years and would love for them to bring Robin bck, I watched Kimberly grow up on that show, even named my child after her character. But the show must go on, and if Kimberly isn’t going to return, then Sabrina is the best choice for Patrick and Emma.,, Although my girls and I would love for Robin to return from the grave,, we are glad that Patrick finally opened his eyes where Sabrina is concerned… Love her character… It’s nice to have someone like her on a soap.

Lin
Lin

I totally agree with you.

Lin

I loved seeing Robin/Kimberly grow up, and become a doctor and mother and Patrick’s wife. It appears from the interview that Kimberly will come back for a time to end the story- we know Robin’s really being held captive. How can she come back, finish the story line (that would have to be come back to PC) and then leave again? she says the character won’t be recast. If she’s not coming back for good- that’s kind of selfish. I have mixed feelings. i would like Robin to return for good and be with Patrick. But I want Kimberly to be able to pursue her dreams of being a director. I don’t want to think of Robin forever being held captive. And I don’t want Sabrina to be hurt. I don’t know what the answer is.- but if Kimberly is not going to be on the show full time, I don’t see how Robin and be alive and held captive forever. Amd I don’t want to see Robin and Patrick break up.

Troy Turner
Troy Turner

You’ve hit upon my major problem with this situation. I will ALWAYS respect her decision to become a director, but decisions have consequences. She’s got Ron and Frank over a barrel, and she knows it-because rabid fans just can’t accept her being gone. But, she has done NOTHING to give fans a show of good faith. GH fans deserve better than this

Lin
Lin

What do you see as a solution, Troy, both for the show and fans. In a way it was better to think she was “gone” from the explosion than have her held captive forever and show up for a few min. here and there. I hope they don’t decide to kill her off or have her break up with patrick. The only long term solution I can see is to look long and hard and find the most “perfect” replacement they can, and have her escape or be sprung. Maybe they should have had the actress who plays Sabrina play the new Robin. If they keep Sabrina, she needs to become more confident. As she is, it’s not too believable that Patrick would truly fall in love. It’s a little too fairy tale-ish. In the long term, she needs to become stronger and more interesting.

I agree 100%! I hate to see a recast but this situation calls for it. Thats why i mention a lookalike in my comments…she looks enough like Robin, and could be a possible recast!

Troy Turner
Troy Turner

All this lies at Kim’s feet, unfortunately. She MUST make a decision before anything else can happen. Frank has been INCREDIBLY patient-so he can’t force her to come back, or she could show the back of her hand and stay gone. But, there comes a point where the good of the show outweighs the needs of the performer, and if we haven’t passed that point already-we’re awfully close

Lin
Lin

Above someone shared a blog that Kimberly and Michael contributed to. I recommend everyone read it, it was really good. It also links to an episode in which Stone came back in 2010 to talk to Robin. You must go to that blog and see that episode. Robin is in a well (after patrick cheats on her) and Stone comes to her. it was fabulous and Michael (Stone) is so good looking. he was a cute boy, but as a man he is one of the best looking men I’ve ever seen. I wonder if they could bring him back as a new character. It would make more sense than bringing Michael EAston, Roger, and Kristin as new characters after we’ve just seen them. Michael is a man now and looks enough different. His acting on the episode was outstanding!

I love the paring of Sabrina & Patrick! She doesn’t look like his daughter. I agree that the character of Patrick has grown and matured over the years but they haven’t backtracked. and even though I love Kimberly Mccullough Patrick deserves to move on and be happy even though right now it seems the Britch (their words not mine) is complicating his life. Kudos!! to Ron Carlivati and Frank Vallentine they are the best things to hit GH since Gloria Monty! and to the Actor and Actress who portray Patrick and Sabrina KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!! I can’t wait to see where this goes

RECAST ROBIN…DONT LEAVE US DANGLING KNOWING SHES ALIVE! Ive seen an actress in a Payless Shoe add who i think looks enough like K.M./Robin who could possibly take over the role! But i still like Sabrina!

At some point down the road they could do a take on the movies, “My Favorite Wife” or “Move Over, Darling” and have Robin come back before or after Patrick marries Sabrina or even someone else down the way. Robin could also sucumb to the Stockholm syndrome and fall for one of the people she is helping to find a cure for… be it Jerry Jaks or possibly there are others she is being forced to find cures for… other Dr. Obrect patients or Faison’s colleagues. She could also discover that she loves finding complex cures for un-chartered diseases/conditions and come back and say that she wants to continue with that work and that would cause her to be gone for long bouts of time working all over the world. She would be like Anna was to Robin… with Emma (not a good choice… but could be used… to allow KM tp follow her directing bliss) and come back sporadically for major events in Emma’s life. If that had to be the explanation I would like to see Sabrina be there for Emma for the long haul with Patrick… sort of like Mac has and was for Maxie, Georgie and Robin. She and Anna could have that in common and it could offer some interesting scenes way down the way when Anna and Robin are sharing great scenes.

Selena

I love that Kimberly said that Sabrina could have Patrick…for a minute. LMBO! Kim is awesome and I would loooooove to see her come back and reclaim her rightful place in Patricks arms. And Sabrina has been great to Emma but she can never replace Robin being Emma’s mom. So I hope Robin comes home ASAP but only if she gets Patrick and Emma back.

I REALLY THOUGHT THEY WERE GONNA BRING BACK ROBIN DURING NURSES BALL, WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT AND SAD ALL AT THE SAME TIME. GREAT FOR PATRICK AND EMMA AND SAD FOR PATRICK AND SABRINA. WHEN BRIT CAME OUT AND MADE HER ANNOUNCEMENT I REALLY THOUGHT ROBIN WAS GONNA COME OUT THEN AND TELL BRIT WHERE SHE COULD GET OFF!!!!!!! DAMN IT!!!!!! ROBIN NEEDS TO COME BACK NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
