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
Guest
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!

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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

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
Guest
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… Read more »

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
Guest
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… Read more »

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,,… Read more »

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… Read more »

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
Guest
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… Read more »

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
Guest
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

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… Read more »

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!!

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… Read more »

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Touches on Racial Profiling, Social Injustice and Bias In Key Scenes with Portia and Jordan

This week ABC’s General Hospital took the opportunity to write in to their scripts and story, the issue that has been so prevalent in our country now and for decades that of racial profiling, injustice, bias, gender equality and more rolled into scenes featuring: Brook Kerr (Portia), Briana Nicole Henry (Jordan), Sydney Mikala (Trina) and William Lipton (Cameron).

When Portia comes to the boxing gym for a workout and comes upon Jordan hitting the boxing bag hard over the the incident with Cameron in the hospital garage, it spurs a greater conversation.

Jordan tells Portia about the situation that arose with Cameron and a gun, and Portia says she heard about it.  Jordan knows if Cameron’s skin was a different color, she may not have been able to de-escalate the situation and talk her officers down, if she had not arrived on the scene in the nick of time.

This launches the two women into an important conversation on racial profiling, social injustice, white privilege and gender bias that they have found themselves dealing with in their professions (Portia is a doctor and Jordan the police commissioner) and their children’s lives.

Later in another scene, Trina reminds Cameron how they, along with Joss (Eden McCoy) were pulled over by a cop last summer when they were driving around the backroads.  She goes on to say when Cameron questioned why they were being stopped, it scared her.  She feels if Joss and Cam were not there, she would have likely been pulled out of the car and pinned to the ground by the cop.  Trina notes she put aside her fear and never said anything to them, because they would never understand.  Trina tells Cam he needs to realize how lucky he was the other night when nothing happened to him after his run in with police.

You can watch the conversation below in scenes with Briana Nicole Henry and Brooke Kerr.

Then let us know, did you like how GH wove this social message into the story?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GH’s James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Those joining Stuart and Pappas in the cast include: Hilda Spellman, Patricia Belcher, Kayden Muller-Janssen, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Lucy Davis will plays Amy’s mom, Eva aka Spark, a feisty supervillain who shoots electrical current out of her hands.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.  Stuart will be continuing his role on GH as per usual.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”

So, intrigued by this pilot and what role James will have within it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
