The dream team of Kimberly McCullough and Finola Hughes are back!

But this time not as mother/daughter on ABC’s General Hospital, where for decades they have played Robin and Anna, but as director and actress, as McCullough directs Hughes on-screen in her passion project pilot of Hey Day!

In the just released short clip from Hey Day, Hughes is seen having quite the ‘frank’ talk to Chrissie Fit who plays the lead in Hey Day.

Fans have rallied around McCullough’s project when news spread that former GH star John Stamos (Ex-Blackie Parrish) was also creating a series inspired by his time on a soap in the 80’s.

Watch this little nugget from Hey Day after the jump, and then let us know if you are excited to see more!

YES! I’m so excited to see more! I done watched this clip so many times, I can’t get enough…


Emma, you will never believe what word grandma just said!

Loved it. The word, I mean. Ha!!

Hey Timmm..
Ohh the ever versatile Fu** <– can't even write it out, how ridiculous..
That word has a 1000 meanings of expression..
and rarely is one intercourse LOL

ahaa my hatch on the car snapped and knocked me on the head, it HURT.. I was jumping yelling' FU** to express my pain.. and that says; Pain!
It is the most expressive word, ever.

that word lost its' juice years ago, why its hung onto is beyond me, it means only what the expression is..

0ooh this is funny..
in checkout lane grocery store..
elderly grandma was digging in her purse for a 25 cent coupon holding up the line.
the guy behind me laid a quarter down and said, paid for, move on..
she turned, gave him the death eye and said;
'' I'm not moving on until I find the FU^^ING coupon..!!
See, the expression word is used by everyone for whichever occasion LOL

THAT was funny, Su!

LOL. SuzieQ. The word is not ‘BAD’. Society makes things’ bad’. You know, as kids we were always told not to say certain words, or else. I couldn’t even say, ‘stupid’, especially to my siblings. Now, I call them stupid all the time. LOL.
It’s like the word ‘bitch’. The definition is “the female of the species ( canine). But, we tell our kids not to say it. Society dictates it. In different cultures/languages, the term is used, and not considered a no-no.
The stigma remains. I even think of the word, and I see my mother’s eyes boring into me. HaHa!!
But, I almost said it just this morning. Men can be such idiots, su…..know what I mean? LOL…Sorry,guys!!

You would never believe the words my late grandma use…if she were alive today she could make a rapper blush-lol

Let me explain. Saying that word does not come easy for me. I never say it….but, I might say it to myself, sotto voce. So, Timmmy; when I hear someone such as Anna/Finola , whom I adore, and consider a lady, say it…I appreciate it.
Bottom line….we all say ‘WORDS’, just not outloud.

hi Celia ! 🙂
for fun;
what makes the F word so bad?
Why is it profiled as the worst word in history .. LOL

Our tv/movies have rape, torture, bad azz sex, and the bad of the bad, the unthinkable, there are no stop signs for anything in our books, music, media and the F word gets bleeped,,, ahaaa!

Yeah, that word should be reserved for special occasions! I’m not a big fan of swearing. I do find it easier to write than to say! AND, call me old fashion but It is a big turn off for me to hear a women swear like a sailor!

Celia…you are a master of words. What is this one’s origin? Even asking this question I can’t say it easily. Remember when I once used it to my Mother as a teenager. She was by no means an obusive (sp?) mom, but she slapped me across the face (I can still feel it) and said to never use that word again, especially to her. So even if the hatch hits me on the head like Su I can’t say it. Must admit s**t has been my go-to word instead under these kind of situations.

LOL…the word rolls off my tongue whenever I’m pissed. I find it quite cathartic… 🙂

Can Wait to see the rest of this project !

I love it. I can’t wait to see the whole thing. More, more, more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I did not think i would ever hear Finola utter an expletive like that—it made me laugh though—hahaha!!!

Looking forward to this! The actress looked familiar so I looked her up. She used to play babysitter / nanny Mercedes on GH.

1000% want to see more

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Dante is Shot as Jason Reveals Himself

Just how was General Hospital going to reintroduce the character of Jason Morgan to the canvas with the highly-anticipated return of Steve Burton in the pivotal role? Well, why we don’t have all the answers, the show wasted no time, and Burton first appeared at the beginning of the Monday, March 4th episode.

In story, while Sonny (Maurice Benard), Selena (Lydia Look) and Ava (Maura West) are at the warehouse, they are facing off with the FBI and the PCPD when John (Adam J. Harrington), Anna (Finola Hughes), Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), Chase (Josh Swickard) et al show up.  Meanwhile on the roof, a man kneels over a skylight window who pipes up with, “it appears they are late to the party.” It’s then revealed just who the man is talking to, and it turns out it’s JASON!

Meanwhile, John and Anna are questioning Sonny and Selina on what they are doing in the warehouse. Selina says they are planning a poker game. Next, the man with Jason aims his gun at Sonny. However, Jason messes up his shot, but the shot rings out. Inside the warehouse everyone scatters about. They realize the show came from the skylight.

Jason tells the other man they’ve been compromised and need to leave the location. Below, in the warehouse, Dante thinks that he and Chase can get onto the roof since the shooter didn’t see them. So, Dante takes off with Chase to find the culprit. In the meantime, John orders a CSI unit. Next, Chase returns and says the building is all clear and Dante is pursuing the suspects.

Now on the pier, Dante catches up with Jason (who’s back is to him) and the other man. Dante orders them to freeze. While the other man gets away, Jason stays put and Dante orders him to turn around slowly with his hands up. Dante is shocked to see its Jason. Confused, Dante says, “What the hell?” Next, the other man returns and fires two shots into Dante’s chest.

As Dante goes down, Jason runs over to him. The other man calls Jason “Jacobs” and tell him to leave the cop to die. Jason tells the other man to go to the planned site and he will find another way out. Next, the man attempts to fire at Jason who is hovering over Dante, but Jason shoots at him first and takes him out.

Back at the warehouse, Ava sees a bullet hole in Sonny sleeve, as John says that it confirms that Sonny is the intended target. John and Sonny stare each other down due to their dark past.  It’s clear that Sonny doesn’t trust John and vice-versa.  Anna tells Sonny she is not out to get him and doesn’t want him to die. She adds that Sonny, “Must have had an angel on his shoulder because she doesn’t see how that sniper missed from this range.”

Chase returns to the warehouse having dropped everyone off at the PCPD, but says Dante hasn’t checked in with him. Sonny looks very concerned, as Jason is looking very concerned over Dante’s body.

So, what did you think of the first episode back for Steve Burton as Jason Morgan? Will it be revealed that he has been infiltrating this organization to save Sonny? Does Jason not know his true identify? What do you think is going on?  As for Dante, will he pass out from his injuries and not identify Jason was even there on the roof with him? Comment below.

Steve Burton Confirms ‘General Hospital’ Head Writer Switch Changed Jason’s Comeback Storyline

General Hospital viewers will see today, Monday, March 4th, the beginnings of the return storyline for Steve Burton and his character of Jason Morgan.

Just how did the recent head writing regime change at GH alter the plans for story for Jason’s comeback? As had been rumored, seems plenty. Back on January 22nd, it was revealed that Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor had been replaced by Patrick Mulcahey and Elizabeth Korte. At that time, Burton had already signed-on to return to the daytime drama for the first time since being let go towards the end of 2021.

Speaking with Soap Opera Digest, Steve confirmed that what we will see on-air is from the new head writers and that the direction of the story changed, “So apparently there was a whole different story planned and then the head writer switch happened and then they kind of rebooted (the story arc). I know Patrick (Mulcahey, one of the new head writers) a little bit, but I really know Elizabeth Korte (who was promoted to co-head writer).”

Burton added, “There’s no one in the building that loves that show, knows the history of the character, and is invested in it 100 percent than Elizabeth. There has never been a more deserved promotion, ever. Once I know that she was (one of the head writers), I was like, ‘Oh, this is gonna be good! I cannot wait.’ And it has been exactly that. Everything has been amazing.”‘

In addition, during an Instagram live on Monday with his podcast and comedy show partner, GH star, Bradford Anderson (Spinelli), Burton also commented on the upcoming story arc which brings Jason back to Port Charles. Steve expressed, “The story is not going to disappoint. The scenes are super deep. Frank (Valentini, EP, GH)  and the new head writers took some time to really think this out.”

Burton, being a longtime veteran of the soaps, said Jason’s return is not just isolated to be about him. “Great story on daytime should involve a myriad of people across the board and where it effects everybody,” he shared. The popular fan favorite feels that this story delivers on all levels.

So, what do you think about the head writer change and how it prompted the plans for Jason’s return? Comment below.

Jason Cook Recalls Landing His Soap Roles as DAYS Shawn-Douglas Brady and GH’s Matt Hunter

Daytime fans remember Jason Cook when he became wildly-popular as Hope (Kristian Alfonso) and Bo’s (Peter Reckell) son, Shawn-Douglas Brady on Days of our Lives from 1999-2006. He later made a brief return in the role in 2015 for the series 50th anniversary.

After departing DAYS, Cook was offered a role on General Hospital as Dr. Matt Hunter, the younger brother to Dr. Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson) from 2008-2012. However, during his time on the soaps, and after, Cook has been focusing on his behind the scenes roles and passion as writer and a director of feature films.

Last week, the Michael Fairman Channel welcomed Jason, along with two of the stars of his latest film, Four for Fun, Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Jacob Young (ex-AMC, B&B, GH). During the conversation, Cook revealed his continued admiration for the soap medium and the actors who work in it, and how it came to pass that he landed his parts on Days of our Lives, and then on General Hospital.

Cook spoke on becoming the on-screen son of soap opera’s most iconic couples, Bo and Hope: “I auditioned for Fran Bascom. She was the Days of our Lives casting director at the time. I was never a great auditioner, I don’t think. She made me feel really comfortable. I remember that screen test. And then, I remember when I got the part, I was actually working at a company at a desk job. I got the call at work and I just screamed, and at the time I didn’t quit my job. But then, I got that contract when I was 19-years-old and it totally changed my life.”

But, was Jason aware how key to the show being Bo and Hope’s son would be? “Yeah, my older sister was a fan of the show. She definitely let me know that I better not mess it up, because I was gonna ruin her favorite couple,” he shared. “I remember she printed out the family tree and it looked like a physics diagram. It was so complicated. A lot of detailed work went into it. But, I was excited.”

After being a known entity with a large fan following, eventually Cook made his way to a new role on General Hospital. Jason explained, “GH was fun. That was a situation where Brian Frons (ex-ABC Daytime President) brought me over there. I just told him I didn’t want to be like or want to do Shawn. He’s like, ‘Well, what do you wanna do?’ I said, ‘How can I screw things up around here and shake things up?'”

Photo: JPI

From that conversation things began to formulate. Cook revealed, “We started talking about the TV series House. I think in soaps, there’s an assumption if you’re going on a show that everybody wants to be the hero. I was like, ‘I don’t want to (be). I want to screw everything up.’ And then, they wrote it in that Matt Hunter burns the hospital down within like six months. I was like really proud about that. The other part that I loved about that character is that Matt, and his older brother Patrick (Jason Thompson), were both neurosurgeons. And if you (an actor) resigned your contract (with the show) you go to Patrick, you see Patrick. And if you don’t resign your contract, you see my character, because my character was going to kill you every time.”

For more on the interview, make sure to check out the replay of the livestream conversation below with Jason, Brytni Sarpy and Jacob Young.  Now let us know, did you enjoy Jason as Shawn-D and Matt on GH? Do you hope someday he might return on-screen to the soaps? Let us know in the comment section.
