Kimberly McCullough Shares Pitch For Her 80's GH-Inspired Project HEY DAY!



GH beloved fan favorite Kimberly McCullough (Robin) took to social media on Thursday to share her video pitch for her passion project and pilot, Hey Day! Fans of the actress know that Kimberly has been working on this project for awhile.

In her latest pitch for the project, McCullough appears in the video along with retrospective clips of her time as Robin Scorpio through the years.  She explains how Hey Day is inspired by life in front and behind the camera of the soaps in the 80’s, where some of the biggest celebrities, biggest music stars, and yes, Luke and Laura, under the direction of former GH EP Gloria Monty defined the genre.  Kimberly also reveals for those who don’t know that she is part latina.

In a talk with SOD about Hey Day and what she hopes from circulating the latest pitch for the show concept, McCullough expressed:  “It would help if the fans shared it and also used the hashtag that I put up there, which is #80sheydaysoap, because that way, when I’m talking about it to different companies, I can actually say to them, ‘These people actually want to see the show.’ Other than that, I would want comments about what they liked or didn’t like about my pitch, their feedback on what they would want to see or is this interesting to them, what would be fun for them to see and what they really want to know about. Do they really want to know about the off-screen romances, do they want to know about what it was like to be a minority then on a soap? I would love to know the things that really interest them.”

Watch Kimberly’s Hey Day video pitch after the jump.  Then let us know what you thought of it, and seeing the fun retro Robin clips and more! Remember to spread the hashtag #80sheydaysoap via your social media accounts too!

Can’t wait to see this!

Yes, let’s hear about those off-screen romances!

I love it. I’m hooked already. Sign me up!!!!!!!!!!!

”Do they really want to know about the off-screen romances,”

— Not me– I am not a Snoopy Gossipy person and I could care less what anyone does or did in their private lives. None of my business. lol
((outside of their character personas and names, I know nothing about any of them))

I wish her luck and to prosper with her project … and y’all enjoy 🙂

If they want to tell all, I am there to listen. Over the many years I have watched GH, I have come to care about the actors–onscreen and offscreen–whatever they are willing to tell, I am there to hear. They are real people offscreen not defined by the characters they play.

Nancy D…I partly agree, but for me if their private lives or opinions are less than stiller, for me, I have found it can interfere with my enjoyment of their acting and characters,

Totally agree Rose. It’s a gamble…if the actor seems likeable it can be a fun read. If I don’t like him or her I have to try extra hard to suspend my disbelief. If they repulse me ala Mel Gibson, never watch another project he leads.

I just watched the clip after my last post. She’s not pitching a show about the real life actors from GH.” It’s a fictional show set back in the “heyday” of the 80s. I’m afraid you’ll have to go back to gossip magazines to get the “scoop.”

Yes. More. More

I find the idea very intriguing. Look forward to seeing this.

I support you Kim in anything you do. You are a pleasure on and off GH. Fulfill your dream, sweetheart!

I thought the original concept of heyday was about a soap opera within a soap opera. And it wasn’t supposed to be a reality show.

And any hoo Queens of Drama. .the recent (thankfully) departed (smh) one season wonder put the kibosh on anymore of these off putting behind the scenes of soaps shows. .it’s 2016 not 1980 and 4 daytime shows left. .get another concept altogether and think beyond the cascade box lol


Looks really stupid. Would prefer to see the old soaps themselves than listening to what we already know. Sounds like it is an autobiography. What don’t we know? Oh, that she’s part Latina. Yawn.

Love It!

So let’s get this straight she had a Hispanic father who did not pay attention to her and she is a victim??? When does it stop? You contorl your own life and by my observation you have made a good living stop the bullshit

The off screen drama seems it may be more interesting than the on screen drama these days – not only romances, but all those contract negotiations, dealing with ratings ups and downs, keeping the shows on the air, the comings and goings of actors, etc.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Ava Receives a Haunting Letter About Austin’s Murder

On Thursday’s November 30th episode of General Hospital, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) is on the case of who shot Austin (Roger Howarth) and pays a visit to Ava Jerome (Maura West) at Wyndemere.

Dante asks Ava when was the last time she saw Dr. Austin Gatlin-Holt. She asks why and what is going on with Austin? Dante tells her he’s dead, and assumes she must already know, especially given her non-reaction to the news.

Ava tells Dante she was last with Austin two days ago at her gallery. When he questions her if security footage can back that up, that would then give her an alibi. However, Ava explains she left out the back, and that the surveillance camera has not been working. Since the murder happened in Pautauk, Dante tells Ava they will want to question her.


She responds that a lot of people in town knew Austin from Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and on. However, Dante points out that Ava was the only one that was kidnapped by Mason (Nathanyael Grey). Ava says she will have her lawyer ready.

As Dante exits, Ava looks through her unopened mail. She finds a letter addressed to her and it says inside on note paper, “You’re welcome.” But that’s not all, inside the letter is a polaroid of Austin’s dead body.


Also in story, Molly (Kristen Vaganos) has a meltdown when she has to start the finding a surrogate process all over again, and is found crying on a park bench by her sister, Kristina (Kate Mansi). Will this be the conversation where Molly will take up Kristina on her initial offer to carry the child for her and TJ (Tahj Bellow)?


In another key moment, James thinks Cody (Josh Kelly) would make a great big brother, which then gets Felicia (Kristina Wagner) flashing back to when Cody told Mac that it turns out Mac is not his bio-dad. Felicia senses something is not right. Is she finally on to the fact that Cody lied to Mac? Stay tuned.


So, who do you think sent the letter to Ava about killing Austin? Is it Nikolas? Cyrus? Mason? Could it be Ava herself, who doesn’t remember she did the deed, or could it be someone else? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Tyler played the role of GH’s Nikolas from 1996–1999, 2003–2011, and lastly from 2013–2016. He also took on the role of Connor Bishop from 2004–2005. The late actor took home the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series in 2016 for his work as Nikolas.

GH’s Scarlett Fernandez on Charlotte’s Mindset: “She Completely Believes That Anna is Out to Get Her”

Once returning to General Hospital, Scarlett Fernandez (Charlotte) has been involved in a juicy storyline, where an impressionable young Charlotte Cassadine has been persuaded almost brain-washed, if you will, via a letter from Victor Cassadine from the grave.

In it, he implores Charlotte to keep Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) away from her father, Valentin (James Patrick Stuart). So, taking that to heart, Charlotte burned Anna’s house down and much more.  When she gets shot by Anna after intruding into the super spy’s apartment, the stakes get even higher.

Valenin had figured out that Charlotte was stalking Anna and trying to do her harm, but did not inform Anna. That has caused a major rift in their relationship.  Meanwhile, Laura (Genie Francis) and Valentin confronted Charlotte after she returned home from the hospital.

In her latest interview with Soap Opera Digest, Fernandez shared on getting to play this kind of story: “It’s definitely an honor because when I was little, I was getting storylines, but this is just crazy! I kind of feel like I’m treated like an adult on the show now, almost, and it’s just been great. I’ve been given great stuff and the fact that Frank (Valentini, EP, GH) and all of his co-workers have trusted me has just been an amazing feeling.”

With everyone confronting Charlotte on her dirty deeds against Anna, and her denying it, Fernandez weighs-in on just where Charlotte is at this point in her mind: “I think that she definitely realizes that the people around her don’t believe her and don’t trust her and I think that really frustrates her because she completely believes that Anna is out to get her. So that (the adults in her life don’t believe her) is hard for her.”

There is also burgeoning chemistry between Jake (Hudson West) and Charlotte! So what does Fernandez think of that? Is she using him, or could be the beginning of young love? She expressed: “I think it’s definitely a little bit of both. I think that maybe she and Jake are partners-in-crime, but I also think that Jake has or will have a good influence on her. She just really needs someone to be there for her and for her to be able to confide in and I think that he has been that.”

So, have you been enjoying Scarlett’s performances as a troubled Charlotte? Would you like to see Jake and Charlotte have a ‘date’? Do you think Charlotte needs deprogramming to help her out of the grip that Victor has on her; as she believes Anna is the cause of all the trouble that will come her father’s way, if she doesn’t find a way to get rid of her? Weigh-in via the comment section below.
