Here is some news that will come to the delight of many General Hospital fans!  The beautiful Kodi Kitchen has been pink-slipped from General Hospital taking her character, Dr. Maggie with her!

Soap Opera Digest’s columnist, Carolyn Hinsey was first to report the news by tweeting, ” Kodi Kitchen (Maggie) has been let go from GH.  Guess the big “Secret in Memphis” is that A-list characters rule on the new GH.  #waytogoFrank!”

Now that Maggie won’t be around to cause trouble for Steven Webber or potentially even be a love-match with grieving Dr. Patrick Drake, her ill-conceived character can’t do much damage to the canvas, or at least, we hope not!  With Maggie, and also the Woman In White’s departure this week, that should give hope to those not digging their stories that the new head writer, Ron Carlivati and executive producer, Frank Valentine are looking to perk up the show, not drag it down!

Who else from the Port Charles canvas would you like to see shown the front-door as GH makes its resurgence?  Let us know!

Sonny neede to be shown the door a decade ago! And he can take anyone from Bensonhurst with him, especially his wishy washy son Dante.

It’s Dante wishy washy? It’s sickening.

I’m a BIG GH fan, but never had a favorite abc soap. All of them, depending on storyline have been my favorite at one time or another. But I’m starting to agree with the bashes of GH on the site, GH needs a complete over-haul.

i dont think dante is wishy washy,I think he is a strong character.janice ,1loveabcsoaps,why do you two think hes wishy washy?

Yes Gh needs a tune-up with their storyline!!!!!!!!! Tired of Sonny’s mob conections & getting shot , so many times I lost count… GH should get back to the stories of the good old days..When Anna ,Robert, Luke were working together as a team…And Holly.. There was back tha Shawn Doneely but he was shipped out to a hospital in some foreign country.. He neede special care..He never came back.. I miss the Webber’s…Luke & Laura…Remember Dr. Hardy, Jessie & her sister Luiclle….Scotty & his father Lee Baldwin… That’s when GH was SMOKIN!!!!!!!!!!!! They need to get back to those kind of stories….Blast from the past!!!!!!!!!Put on more pleasant stories.. Cut down on these mob stuff & revenge, shootem-up stories…Then the ratings would sky rocket !!!!!!!!!!!

You know what abc, you are correct. There were times in my 35 years of watching soaps that I stopped watching a soap for awhile due to their storylines. I didn’t watch OLTL straight thru. I came back and forth with them until the last 7 years.
So I will agree with you. Which ever soap is the most interesting!

Though GH is a hard habit for me to give up these days!!!!

maurice benard is the best along with steve burton, i love the mob storyline and
that is why i have been watching maurice for 17 yrs

and you cannot go back to the old days of gh, fans need to except maurice benard is the main one people tune into to see everyday he must be doing something right

and you need to except that Sonny isn’t all that. Less than 3 million viewers tune in “to see Sonny everyday” compared to 10 million viewers that tuned in during GH’s hayday long before Stumpy’s name was ever even mentioned.

I love Maurice, love love him. I agree with the fans on here, the mob stuff is over kill, and not just that- the writer’s over kill Bernard with learning so many lines EVEN stuff that’s not mob related. They could be doing more with the mystic of the character of Sonny, and Maurice has the charisma to pull anything off. With eyes like Maurice, we the fans should almost be begging to see more of him. Keep some of the mystery of the character and the man, Maurice Benard.










as much as I am mad at sonny all the time ,HE STAYS,there is no way he should go ,non of the cast you said should go ,also I love anthony ,he has a way with words ,the mob stories should be toned down a bit ,alot and the quartermaines should be brought back ,along with anna, lauria,and a few more ,because all these bad guys will be a big part of the reason my john mcbain is staying in port charles,the pcpd is wishy washy and john mcbain will change that.hey,danti is fair at least he tries to be.all the mob guys have to stay ,they just all need new jobs now.

Get rid of Ewen. He is useless and boring.


I agree Fran, I can do without Ewen as well, I too find him dull.

I think he should go to ,I never remember his name when hes all three of yous said hes useless,boring ,and dull.and he does not belong with liz.

First to go had to be LIW. DONE. Then Maggie. DONE. Now Ewan.

He needs to go, no story for him here.

Defintely Jonathan Jackson – Would love to have him back on the show, and also Genie Francis, would love to have Laura back on the show

I don’t like to hear about anyone losing their job, but I must say, I am happy to see this character go, I never did take to her. I am definitely liking the direction FV and RC are taking GH in!!!!

Would definintely be fine with Ewen getting his walking papers. I find him to be one dimensional and dull.

Hopefully he is next (Ewan)

I totally agree!!

Delores…! Out the door!

Who? (kidding,but I mean you never see her & she has no story anyway) Agree.

who is delores?1loveabcsoaps whats to know to.

just found out she is dantes partner.I dont trust her.

Her too. With the older cast returning, make room and get rid of the useless characters.

This Kate and Maxie should go and bring back Megan Ward and since Kirsten Storms isn’t coming back then they should find someone else! Oh! Get rid of Anthony too!

I agree…I can’t stand the new Kate and new Maxie…just can’t…

Agree, they look too much alike for starters.

I for one think the new Kate is doing an amazing job, much better then anyone Maurice has worked with in the past. And Kelly Sullivan is her name! As for Maxie, Jen Lilley is amazing!

megan ward, thats her name ,I liked her, she left and never came back ,why did she leave?nicki,,I know I keep saying this ,Am I the only one here that likes anthony?hes funny ,keeps beautiful flowers ,he has a way with words ,every time he is on i enjoy his acting ,he acts good with everyone and always has something of interest to say ,anthony has to stay,so he can continue to make me laugh.anthony,tracy ,and luke are funny,general hospital needs alot of comedy to mix up with the drama ,thats what made one life to live a pleasure to watch,there was always a smile between the heartache.

Kate and Maxie both need to go. Kelly Sullivan is doing a horrible job with this story. They need to bring Vanessa back for Maurice. This show ending without Sonny and Brenda and fixing what they did to them would be absolutely outrageous. They are the history couple, the super couple. Sonny and Kate don’t even come close. By far, Sonny’s worst pairing.

i agree with u jessica sonny and brenda need to be together

i can how ever except kate with sonny but would rather vanessa come back
if gh is cancelled

which i hope it will not be

Brenda needs to come back and take Sonny off with her. Her return was botched by the then hack writers. Maybe, just maybe the new writer could do something with her.

The current Kate needs to go ASAP. The character is no longer believable to fans!

Storyline DID personality switch..SO been done before.. Get rid of Kate..that is just so stale.

I dont give a rats behind on what her and steves secret is or was,at least now olivia wont kick her ass because she was always hanging out with him in the hall ways ,she was always there not only annoying olivia but me to ,that maggie character was boring,boring did I say boring.whos next?the headshrinker ,No hes not for liz.I like the accent but not him,bring ethan back give him a good story,I knew the newbees were getting kicked out the door ,its nice that its really going to happen now,the house cleaning in port charles has begun,its about time.

me neither! GH has been a 15 minute soap for me before – soooo many characters I didn’t give a rats behind about…
lisa – gone now
lady in white… she was terrible! was she really shot dead? (I hope!)
maggie-who? gone now tho
new kate and new maxie — is it me or do these two replacements look too much alike, and really don’t resemble the characters as we knew them
not crazy about matt… maybe if he shaved. He looks like a little kid with an old man style beard. just weird to me.
can’t stand the johnny/carly crap… must she always jump a mobster?
what is the thinking in joining tracy and anthony? yuk!

oh, i gotta add in the other guy that wants Carly and all the mess with molly. i don’t want a bunch of stories with young teenagers… i want really good actors/characters – like the great ones they’ve started to bring back.

I wish Jason would have to leave the mob due to health reasons, and maybe Sonny could bonk his head and not remember who he is and start over (like Jason did). I like Maurice’s dimples… just not the never ending mob crap!

Boy, you said it all. Literally every word I agree with & have either written in already or am thinking the same thing every day.

Got to tell you Christi, you are SPOT on in this post. Carly the character has NO BUSINESS with Johnny, because she has divorced her children from Sonny to keep them safe too many times. Therefore, why is she around Johnny who is dangerous, what about her daughter? BAD idea for the writer’s to put them together.
I HATE Kate. They have to POUR MAKE-UP on her face for her to be pretty. She and the new Maxie both have big eyes, but the new Maxie is pretty.
Tracy and Anthony pairing, PLAIN STUPID, another bad writing idea.
And all the Rest of the people U named no comment needed. But correct. I would leave Matt around only so Patrick has a family support system, and he also looks enough like Patrick to be his brother. Otherwise, Matt never caught fire with me, and he could get on the bus out of Port Charles as well.

You forgot :

Shawn and TJ.

That’s 8 altogether, dead beat character’s. I didn’t include Maxi because the actress isn’t coming right now, and so that character is PIVITOL in Port Charles and the Scorpio family. And until the old Maxi comes back, let’s face it, we are not going to be HAPPY with anyone they use as a FILL in. * But this Maxi has been giving it ALL she’s got, playing Maxi with the same energy and zest, and ” almost ” sound. Therefore, she doesn’t make my 9TH person on your CHOPPED LIST.

*Jury’s out on Shawn too. Jason needs a partner.

Hey what’s happening?

8 good people could back their bags and get out of Port Charles.

I’m going to bed now.

LOL, sounds like choping block time! Yeah, the nuKate and Maxi wear so much damn makeup, clownish.

I know where’s Carly’s Josslyn? Haven’s seen her in a while.

hey ILove… when I said “the other guy that wants Carly” and the mess of teenagers with Molly, I guess I was referring to TJ and Shawn… didn’t know their names, but that’s who I was talking about… two more bus tickets! bwahahahaha

Thanks for finding out who Delores is for me…. LOL

I never like to see anyone canned, however I am over Kate. That character did nothing for me from Kate 1.0 to Kate 2.0. History should have never been rewritten. Kelly Sullivan, and Laura Wright are my two preference to go next..

Whose character is Kelly Sullivan, and why do you want that character and Laura Wright to go next? Laura just needs to be given some real life situations opposed to getting in the midst of drama all the time.

Oh, Kelly is Kate. She has to go! Sonny needs to be alone for a while. He could use a vacation on his brain from learning all those lines.

or ,when my john mcbain gets to port charles as a fbi agent he can throw sonnys ass in jail.Im all for that.cant wait to see my favorite landview cop,Im counting the days.

They need to get rid of Kelly Sullivan! No disrespect to the actress but this Kate storyline is just an insult to every bit of history the show has. Re-writing Sonny’s history, erasing Brenda who is the love of his life, is reprehensible to this 20 year viewer. Kate’s fake history and supposed connection to Sonny is based in nothing. They need to bring back Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo as Brenda!!

I know!

I hate this contrived History they are creating with UGLY Kate. It’s disrespectful to the history of his charac ter, and to the viewer. Sonny has been in relationships with other woman without them rewiting his history with Brenda. Imma have to get Barbara t to call up and start complaining and I’m going to send soap to GH, and complain. Stop this train wreak with Kate. IF SONNY NEEDS A MATE SO BAD, BRING BACK CLAIRE ( the prosecutor) THEY HAD REAL CHEMISTRY, BUT VENESSA/ BRENDA CAME BACK…..


I dont like kate with sonny either ,he should start concentrating on how he is going to get out of the mob so I can start liking him again,what ever happened to the old kate?why did she leave?the way Im all over the soap sights you would think I could find that out,I would like to know why she left .you guys have to forget brenda,unless she is coming back .and I dont think she is.keep in mind ,when she did come back the last time it didnt help in the ratings if general hospital should bring someone back big ,let it be laura.I liked claire till she got weak in the knees over sonny,then she went downhill for me ,no way will a man make me screw up my job,and she did that for sonny,wrong.

I don’t like Kate with Sonny either. Just because I like the actress doesn’t mean I like her choices for men!!!!!!!!!

Kelly Sullivan is AMAZING!!!!!!!! Better then anyone Maurice has worked with yet!

I LOVE nu Kate . I think she has more talent and beauty than original Kate.
However, this storyline is typical Ron. I could write it in my sleep. He loves those split personalities!! Sonny goes on trial and Connie comes out at trial!! Kinda like a re-make of Karen Wolek back in the day. jmo

As far as Brenda being the love of Sonny’s life, we watching the same show?
Brenda when she first came on, her beauty alone was breath taking.
However, everyone grows over time. On her last visit, she lost her looks, and she behaved like a 14 year old. No wonder Sonny didn’t get on the plane with her.
Deep down he was glad to see her go to!

She was breath taking…. what happened? Do you remember before she actually aired, and was just taping, and they showed it on, her face was like simeze. Then it got better (guess she had work and swelling was promiment). But she did act like a 14 year old and didn’t stop until maybe 3 months before she left. And we talking about HER ACTING which was HER DECISION to play it like that. She wouldn’t dress and look sexy, and if she did dress somewhat, it was with the same pattern of clothes she had been wearing: black paints, white shirt. The only difference is, she would put on heals. She didn’t down play that she had lost some of her beauty. She could of made up more…. It was horrendous! I stated last week, that Brenda needs to come back and do that role justice, even if that means 2 days a week, (while doing her other projects-she’s not that busy). And should she get a long term job elsewhere…., she can shoot scenes in advance, OR they can use Hannah (Johnathan Jackson’s wife) who use to play opposite Sonny, and was a Brenda lookalike. They could use Hannah /Lisa Vultaggio in scenes shot FAR DISTANCE-showing Sonny meeting Brenda in a restaurant for dinner, or having the actress waiting in bed for him, or shower scenes, and she talking to him, but no close up shot. That way Venesa Marcil get’s the time she needs to do whatever….., and the fans get a well written, REALISTIC, storyline with Sonny and Brenda… That’s if Lisa Vultaggio would be willing to do this, if not there are other look alikes out her. I’m a damn lookalike.. LOL

ROTFLMFAO! UMM what sHOW are YOU WATCHING?! I’ve been watching GH for 20 years now – MB debuted in 1993 and VMG 1992! I WATCHED SnB’s Great love story unfold….Brenda came before any other woman! Carly etc all came afterwards. Soo I don’t give a damn what Guza created outta thin air with Skate/ Kate. They suppose to have all this history, right? Where???? Wanna know why there are folk who actually don’t believe in this rewritten history after rewritten history with Skate??? Simple! BECAUSE NO ONE SAW IT! With that being Said I do feel sorry for MEGAN WARD fans – the character she originated is being Disrespected & Disregarded like trash? Why? Over an actress ( a newbie ) who can’t act her way outta a paper bag!

YEAH Sonny was glad to see Brenda go?! ARE YOU SERIOUS?! Yeah sure he was glad…….that’s why when she turned and walked away he was crying his eyes out like a lil baby! Lmao! You gonna have to come better than that! Whatever Sonny is saying to Ms. Substitute is what he has always done when Brenda isn’t around to mask the pain. Nuskate is about to turn Sonny’s life into a living Nightmare…..then once Sonny wakes up it will be “Kate Who?” *Snicker*

Yes granted Brenda was written terribly the last time around. I think any one can see that. But just cuz you maynot like the character don’t make Kelly Sullivan’s acting any less bad! Her acting stinks! Now I’m sure the woman is a nice person but ratings don’t lie and they dipped even more since she was brought on. I don’t blame it completely on her but she is indeed a fraction of what’s wrong.

And VMG is just as beautiful as she ever was. Inside as well as out . Know This, she will be back on the show – Brenda ALWAYS comes back and if you knew your history you will know that. She’ll probably be back sooner than ppl know. :))

abc said……….
I’m a damn lookalike.. LOL
LMAO! I was thinking the same about me. lol 🙂
Don’t forget about her sleeves worn over her hands. I swear they shopped for her at Forever 21. 🙂 She skipped when she walked, and she snorted when she laughed. Oh yea, she was real talented. NOT!
As for her and Sonny, really was their chemistry? They hardly ever showed love scenes and when they did, it was usually AFTER they did it.

Sonny chose not to go with Brenda. IMO that speaks volumes. So boo hoo Sonny!

I understand there are people who are fans of Sonny & Brenda forever. No matter how long ago they were. Sonny loves the BEST whoever is in his orbit that month. So NO Brenda was NOT the love of his life. imo I hope she stays gone. However, I doubt I get my wish.

Paris…Congrats on you watching GH for 20 years. I have watched it for 35 years. I know history. Where did I state I didn’t like the character of Brenda? I HATED the character of Dorian Lord. YET she is one of the best daytime actors there was. I know the difference!
I simply pointed out some truths. One, she is NOT as gorgeous as she once was. Her stringy high school hair, her ‘forever 21’ wardrobe, the snorting while laughing, her maturity level – All strikes against her.
She is in her 40’s, yet they portrayed her with the mentality of a 14 year old.

Comparing Brenda to NuKate, imo is hilarious. Though YOU may not like the character of Kate, I do. I think she is a great actress. Talented is the word I will choose.

I watch TV for entertainment. So I appreciate good acting when I see it.
Brenda had looks and some acting ability back in the day. This time around she did not. And yes, she had too much work done on her face. It looks terrible.

Kelly Sullivan, because she can’t act, let alone opposite Benard, and is the worst recast in the history of GH. Also, Laura Wright, because I’m sick of her colossal arrogance and sense of entitlement on this show.

Kelly Sullivan is an AMAZING actress!

Me, you’re certainly entitled to your opinion about Sulivan, but the last time I checked, I’m not obligated to agree with it, I don’t and I won’t, but thanks for the wasted bandwidth. 😛

Kelly Sullivan can’t act her way outta a paper bag! LOL! Heck even the new Maxie can act compared to her.

Sorry to say this because I don’t wish anyone to be unemployed… but I am not liking this Kate/Connie possible DID storyline at all. I know that RC knows how to write it…but it is just not happening for me and while Kelly is probably very talented I am not believing or caring about it and would not mind seeing Kate go away and if she comes back have her come back as Megan Ward and do the Devil Wears Prada thing more with Maxie and LuLu. Plus I would like to see Sonny and Olivia get together.

Maybe Dr. Keenan could take Kate away to a clinic around the world.

I also would really like to see TJ go back where he came from. There are so many other wonderful ways to write for Molly without trashing her with TJ.

Anthony Z would be very nice to have slip away for an extended leave of absence.

Delores could track a lead on her sisters case in NYC and exit.

Sorry talented actors… would just like to clear the decks for better stories and to allow old faves to come back and some from OLTL to join in.


please stroll above two places above your post.

1loveabcsoaps replied Your comment is awaiting moderation. March 1st, 2012 at 8:50 pm

I totally agree with you. I love Kelly Sullivan, she is a powerhouse actress, but I dont care for the Kate storyline. I also think that the Ewan, Delores, Shawn and TJ characters are not necessary. I would love to see Olivia with Sonny (eventually) and I think that Steve Webber’s time is just about up too unless they come up with some interesting storyline that includes his sister Liz and his Mom Heather. I would also like to see Matt get a storyline outside of Maxi as well. I also think that Johnny should be with someone closer to his age, like lets say Kristina or Brooklyn. I personally think we need to see more core family characters return like Ned, Dillon or Brooklyn Quartermaine or Kristina Corinthos, Morgan Corinthos or Rick Lansing. I think the key to success is using the vets and investing in the core families, Quartermaines, Webbers, Spencers & yes even the Corinthos.

*nearly chokes* Kelly Sullivan is a powerhouse? On what Planet? Sure isn’t earth! Yeah she’s a powerhouse alright. Yeah suuuuure that why TPTB had the GH cast pimp her up 24/7 Even telling viewers to give her a chance! Lmfao! FYI – Powerhouses don’t need propping / pimping etc TO SELL THEMSELVES to the audience. A few may think she’s pretty good but TO go as far and consider her a POWERHOUSE is Insulting to the actresses that actually hold that title like…..SUSAN LUCCI ( AMC) and SUSAN FLANNERY ( stephanie B&B )……etc. women who have been around for many years in Daytime are – POWERHOUSES

I agree with Lisa. Sullivan hadn’t even worked in soaps before GH, and I will never understand how she got this role, other than perhaps she was cheaper to hire than Ward was to keep. Calling her “a powerhouse” is like calling cubic zirconia the Hope Diamond, and yes, it certainly is insulting to those in the genre who can actually act.

again ,who is delores,her name is popping up all over the place here.

Dante’s latino partner.

heidi ,your right ,I cant stand dantes partner.sometimes I think he is a bad guy.that thought has crossed my mind several times.

Rebecca Herbst, Kirsten Alderson, Roger Howarth and Kassie DePaiva and Ewen too!

Rebecca Herbst, Kirsten Alderson, Roger Howarth and Kassie DePaiva and Ewen too!

Too what?

He needs to go, too. I couldn’t remember the actor’s name.

I want to know what too.

Rebecca Herbst, Kirsten Alderson, Roger Howarth and Kassie DePaiva and Ewen too

Still not clear. Are you saying all those you listed should go and Ewen/ Ethan, should go too. I’m comfused. You dont have to remember the actor’s name, are you talking about Ethan, you spelled Ewen?

I mean I would like to see GH WITHOUT Rebecca Herbst, Roger Howarth, Kassie DePaiva, Kirsten Alderson (most of all) and the actor who plays that psychiatrist, Ewen.

My vote goes for Laura Wright and Kelly Sutherland (Kate).

Its KELLY SULLIVAN!!!!!! not Kelly Sutherland .. and she’s a great addition to the show.

Sullivan, Sutherland–who cares? She’s arrogant, flighty, can’t act her way out of a paper bag, and needs to go back to whatever she was doing before she tried. She’s AWFUL!

Laura Wright because Carly is the most vile character ever and Kelly Sullivan because there is only one women for Sonny and that is Brenda!

Damn right Brenda!

Everyone else are playmates.

Likable and believable were: Hannah (Johnathan Jacksons wife) , the prosecutor who played Claire, and Laura Wright.

Everyone else have been playmates, to simply boring….!

Puhlezzzz……Brenda & Sonny were so long ago, there is no remake of them anymore since Guza/Wolfie ruined her last appearance.
Her face looks bad, her acting was horrible, and she looked like a stray brought in from the outside.

Sonny’s TRUE love is himself.

And since Brenda isn’t returning, they should hook him up with his son’s mother, Oliveria. They have good chemistry and look good together. Not Kate.

I agree. Olivia can hold her own w/sonny. He has that cocky attitude and she slings it rgt back.

I like olivia with sonny to,I thought a while back that it would happen ,then his feelings went to kate.I still think that sonny will need a good lawyer to get him out of the mess he is in now,I know he didnt shoot the tires out of anthonys car but its looking like that so todd can go after sonny and he(sonny) better not hurt todd.because if I have a choice with these two guys Im taking todd.I know you dont like him but I do ,and that sonny cant and shouldnt be the winner every time, thats the problem that general hospital has ,sonny and jason never paid for there crimes and that has to stop. im sure hes on the phone right now getting a hold of diane or alexis.same recycled story,I hope that ron and frank dont fall into that.sonny open up your diner and get a hold of roxy to run the place.

BRENDA IS RETURNING! VMG always comes back so Idk where you are getting your information from. ……but she will be back. Vanessa told her fans on twitter & in mag articles that she will be back. 🙂

most of the time I want to strangle carly ,but thats what I like about her,she has to stay she is a very important character in port charles

I hated Carly’s character since her debut in 1996…….though I would so love to see her go….I know its not happening.

The one that really needs to go – is kelly Sullivan! Lawd its so bad when she’s in a scene – she clears a room of 7 ppl when GH is on…..and no one comes back to watch till her scnes are over! LOL!! NO LIE! Its that bad.

” Lawd its so bad when she’s in a scene – she clears a room of 7 ppl when GH is on…..and no one comes back to watch till her scnes are over! LOL!! NO LIE! Its that bad. ”

You need to keep posting that, about Kate/Kelly Sullivan clearing the room of 7 people. U need to past that ALLr over this site and everywhere else until it reaches GH. Trust and believe the writer’s read this site, bc Michael is so connected internally to these soaps, having a FRONT pass to the sets, and studio….

I was anticipating a hook up down the road between her and Patrick. I personally didn’t dislike her or her character like some new characters on soaps. But if it comes down to having a new character or favorites back, the answer gets simple. Just wish soaps weren’t in a time where it has to be one or the other. Wish the genre could still bring new faces in from time to time while giving us the dose we want of the favorites– but those days are gone.

You didn’t meantion WHO you were anticipating the hook up with Patrick with. I have no clue who your talking about.

maybe she is talking about liz.your not going to like that will you?I have to wait and see.a little writing can go a long way ,so maybe patrick and liz would be ok.however I believe he lost the love of his life and he needs a long time to heal,if he doesnt I will get romance for patrick ,at least not now.

Never got into the character of Maggie so…this makes room for other returns! Now get rid of Shawn, TJ, Ewan and Fake Kate!! Bring back Frisco, Felicia, Sean, Tiffany, Ned, Laura & Dillon.

I do not like the new Kate, and whatever stupid “secret” she is hiding. The new Maxie is growing on me. I would love to see Frisco come back and also Ned. (Get him back with Alexis). Hope GH survives. I refuse to watch The Chew or The Revolution, and DEFINITELY will not watch Katie Couric.

AGREE. Frisco & Ned would be great additions, also Dillon, we need to beef up the Qs.

Glad they got rid of Maggie. Next should b Ewwwen and Maxie. Maybe bring back Robyn Richards who played Maxie b4 Kirsten Storms? Not liking the Kate character either.

Oh Robyn Richards was adorable-great idea! Wonder what she’s been up to? NuKate-ugh.

Okay, first they need to bring back Kristina and the actress who was last playing her. They need to work on keeping Ethan, because dammit he’s freaking hot. Maxie needs to go away for a while till Kirsten can play her again, I like Matt, but not w/ Elizabeth, she needs to be w/ Jason even if its in a Triangle storyline. hello, thats what soaps are all about. They need to put Finola on contract and have her kick some ass, don’t mind the current oltl transplant but for now lets keep it minimum, and more GH vets guest starting, cause I know not everyone who comes back can be put on contract. Oh and also, please update to opening credits, and just a suggestion, but I think it would be awesome if GH showed vets like Emma Samms, Finola Hughes and Tristan Rogers( all who are consider superstars in this medium )the kind of respect they gave a non soap superstar i.e James Franco , the Special Guest Star credit, I personally think they’ve earn that status, and Soaps need to show respect to their own stars.

I just started watching GH again because of the OLTL additions. I don’t buy the new Maxie or this Kate…..but I am not familiar with the old one either. I am bored to tears by Jason and Sam. To me they are the worst part of this show. I am loving that Luke, Robert, and Anna, Tracy, Edward, and even Holly have all been on . This feels like classic GH to me. I have been impressed by the characters of Patrick, Johnny, Carly, Epiphany, and Michael. I am not a Sonny either, never liked the constant focus on mob violence, but am looking forward to seeing his scenes with Todd and Blair. Kristen Alderson rocked as Starr……I am so looking forward to her story and how Michael is tied into it. the show needs more comedy….the only character that can make me laugh and has the comedic talents seems to be Tracy. I hope to see more Qs every day so there can be some light with all this dark.

How is Maggie leaving? Is she to be AXED as the next murder victim? The character was never developed beyond sharing a secret with Steven so nobody will miss her (the actress who played her was fine). I am curious if any character can leave GH without being killed.

I dont care what there secret is either,your right about all the body bags in port charles.I say let her say or leave a goodbye letter to steve ,then just walk out the front door of the hospital.

On second thought, go ahead and kill her. Maybe it could be dragged out by holding her hostage and torturing her for a week or two. What’s another body on this show? No one was attached to her character and it would probably improve ratings.

Did’nt like the new Kate at all! I like Elizabeht they need to give her a better storyline. Getting a little tired of the whole mob storyline..need to change it. Can’t wait for The storyline with the Mannings and John to start to develop. Longtime fan of all three soaps and we need to support GH along with the crossovers!

i know a lot of fans are saying get rid of shawn – i say don’t get rid of him instead do this character some justice and write a decent s/l for him & stop having him sniffing up carly’s butt 24/7 – i find it so degrading for him to be begging…………jmo

On my list with someone’s else’s list above, I reconsidered getting rid of Shawn because I said, Jason needed a partner in crime. You make allot of sense where Shawn is concerned, bc he is interesting, but when U see him chasing behind Carly with no real storyline, then he finds himself on everyone’s Chopped list. Because you pointed out ( finding it degrading of him to be begging ) I’m going to be paying closer attention to him in the storyline.

I like shawn ,he has to stay for now.not crazy about the kid he is caring for ,what he did to molly ,I dont like ,and I dont want her falling head over heels in love with him,shes to young.I like molly dont want to see her get hurt.bring back ric she needs a good father .and someone to drive alexis up the wall.

Good riddance. I’m sure she’s a nice girl, and she’s certainly easy on the eyes. But it was a pointless character that was just taking up space. I wanted to throw up every time she said the word “Memphis.”

Hoping that Ron and Frank will use this exits creatively as they did with Cassandra/Irina to bring back Luke and Holly. Maybe Maggie’s secret in Memphis is that she’s taking care of Steven’s mother Heather?

I am ready for Delores to be gone also. Just too many newbies being rammed down our throats when the core cast was being pushed to the background. There are plenty of cast that could be used for storyline purposes. And the new Kate?! Never liked the original, but if Kate was brought on to bring in the Falconeris, then her purpose has been served and Kate can go. If Ewen is around to be a Lucky replacement so be it, but I feel there are plenty of single men on GH that could be used for the same situation. Do you see a pattern? You bring in new characters for an easy fix, than using the core characters and keeping them happy with storylines. That is where the writing staff went wrong with GH. Let’s hope the new regime ‘gets it’ – get rid of the newbies and let the core cast have a storyline! (I am asking for a Dante and Lulu storyline – they get married, then we never see them! Are you kidding me?! They are legacy characters who have plenty to tell!)

I am just starting to watch Gh again…Not familiar with all the characters yet….Waiting to see some more of OLTL crew……….That was my favorite soap…….I don’t care for Helena , still trying to get revenge & murder people…Has it with Luke again… Don’t care for Sonny & carly’s character anymore……….That is getting stale !!!!!!! Less mob connections & mayhem for me………Haven’t watched GH in quite a while and Sonny’s & Carly’s characters haven’t changed one bit… Hope Blair , Todd ,Star ,Cole & especially John McBain can change some of GH stories & head them in a different direction.

Like Anna, Robert, Holly .. I miised them……….. Hope their on for a while………Yes GH needs a tune-up with some of the stories & characters…Something fresh and new!!!!!!

I thik Carly is whacked out!!!!!!!!!!

As I said don’t cre for her charcter to much………..Where’s Monica ????? Ex . Webber

Get rid of them all… and move the “hospital” to Llandview

I hope that’s a joke, and bad one at that. OLTL had it’s moment in time, and GH still has their’s.

that is a little extreme ,would like to have both soaps ,wish we could bring back one life to live ,but general hospital needs to be saved .there are several people out the door,along with the good writing this week there cleaning house to ,so far so good.

ok ok… yes perhaps my comment may be offending some people.

I gave up GH 15 yrs ago because it had lost what it was… that’s all.

but I truly miss OLTL… cut dead before it’s time, so perhaps it is best that it has gone off the air while so many were still enjoying it, rather than turning into an unrecognizable mess.

I know how you feel,I miss one life to live as well,we just dont want abc/disney cancelling another soap.

#1 Kate should go #2 Ewen # 3New Maxie #4 Matt #5 Shawn #6 Anthony #7 Johnny Then bring back Greg Vaughan and keep Kassie Depaiva & Roger Howarth. Then bring in Ilene Kristen & Robin Strasser.

TJ, Shawn, Ewan, Ethan, Delores and Sam (unless they start wrting her better) need to go… Bored to tears with Jason and Sam… Elizabeth is better with Jason. Bring back Jax…love Carly and Jax. Like the actress who plays Kate…but don’t buy her with Sonny. Need more Quartermaine’s!!! Love Anna, Robert, Luke, Patrick, Carly, Johnny, Sonny (sometimes), Spinelli, Maxie, Matt, Elizabeth, Michael, Dante (but he and Lulu are BORING…never thought I’d say that…loved them to start…Lulu has just become blah…) Looking forward to seeing how OLTL characters fit in…huh…maybe Olivia and John McBain?? Could be a good pairing!

Who is Delores? What’s her role? Missed her?

I have to know who delories is to,I keep thinking ,did I miss someone here?well if I did they were probably boring.1loveabcsoaps ,when you find out let me know,ok.

Yeah, I almost forgot about Delores. She’s the brunette woman cop. The 1 that’s involved w/the stripper killings (her sister was killed, a meaningless plot) and was having exchanges w/Dante. Her voice is annoying. Another useless newbie.

Delores is the lady cop who is Dante partner on the PCPD.

thanks robert c ,I dont trust her either .

I would like to see less Jasam, Franco, wtd, perpetual leaky brain, most boring honeymoon ever. They get the worst stories and the most airtime. I’m sorry for Kodi Kitchen I don’t want anyone fired, and the way Hinsey worded her tweet was unkind. I don’t think characters like Shawn, TJ, Ewen, Nukate, and Delores are built to last and KS needs to be back.

Im a new viewer, I actually like the character and the actresses that play Kate and Maxie but they do look very similar and at first I was getting confused.

I just hope the new regime nixes all this mob nonsense and gets down to character driven storylines.

As a former viewer of OLTL I am shocked and disapointed that they killed Hope. Im hoping its not true but its not the way to introduce the OLTL cast members!

then you shouldnt have a problem ,you never got use to the other people who played them ,I like kate to but I liked the girl who played her first,she disappeared one day,and never came back, the other girl got very sick and she cant come back for now.her name is kirsten storms,she was maxi the other girl who was kate I forgot her name .alot of different people say they look alike,I dont .Im not happy about cole and baby hope either ,but I understand why it was done ,still there could have been other ways out to free starr.

How long U been watching GH? How long did you watch OLTL? U can contact1loveabcsoaps, Heather, barbara t, Debi and ask anything about the history of GH. I read their post and and these woman have been watching for year’s. As for Maxi and Kate looking alike, they just have the same BIG ROUND EYES….. Maxi is a very GOOD LOOKING GIRL, Kate had to put ALLOT of make-up on to look attractive and compliment Sonny. And when her hair is down, she looks even worst. She had to put the hair back for a more attractive look, but then there is the BIG for-head. No., they don’t really look alike., they just have simular shaped eyes, and color. They DONOT have the same FACIAL FEATURES and SHAPE of FACE…… Maxi #2 is pretty.

the emmy nods are in .one life to live has a few going for the statue ,vicki and blair best lead actresses ,where are we going to watch it? that question is still up in the air.clint and bo to.why this year?maybe a few critics have heard us bitch about all the years one life to live was change the subject,I dont think that maxi and kate look alike in any way.your right they have big round eyes.and maxi2 is pretty,and when k s comes back I want her to stay ,different character.why not?

I agree. I hope they didn’t kill off Starr’s family or at least Hope. I am also worried they’ll clean slate John McBain too. I feel for the OLTL fans, I’m a fan of Starr and her family and esp “Jolie”. I don’t want to see the happy endings undone. Trying to be patient and watch more unfold esp during May sweeps. Ppl break up, get tog, are alive again. Who knows? I’m trying to b positive and looking to see if Natalie is coming w/McBain. But it can be well kept secret or they’re going to pair McBain w/Sam. I really hope they don’t go there. I’ve been watching OLTL & GH for a while now and have preferred OLTL the last several yrs, so I totally get it. Not liking the big changes. Just gotta see if they stick.

Thank heavens she is gone I did not need to see a redux of Lisa Niles which took up what 2 years air time their are more trimmings of the cast from what I hear! And this Helena mess needs to go maybe it is time for TG to retire he is gone 6 months out of the year I do not see the point of him anymore Lucky is gone soon Ethan no Bobbie what is the point of his character?

I so agree with you Kay! Bringing in Maggie was nothing more than replacing Lisa Niles. Weren’t we tired of that? Glad she is fired!
LIW & Maggie (for me) were my most hopeful to leave first.
Now i am leaning toward Ewan. Does Ewan even know LIW is dead?
I don’t see him or Delores much longer.

Who besides me, could see Carly & Todd together?


YIKES I loved todays show!

Why do you people even watch this show if you are complaining so much about all the characters and actors?! I think that Kelly Sullivan is a wonderful actress and is doing a great job as Kate/Connie. Laura Wright won a frickin Emmy and is also an outstanding actress. I also like the temp Maxie just as much as I like Kirsten. I do think they need to get rid of Anthony though and give Johnny something other to do that the mob stuff.


Kate Sullivan is doing a fantastic job acting. Don’t hold a storyline against her or the fact that original Kate was replaced.

Laura Wright is another fantastic actress. An actress who well deserved to win last year BEST actress. My thing with Carly, is I don’t care for how they have been writing her this past year.
Today though, I was hoping she would go in complete bytch mode and STOMP out Sam! 🙂

I was waiting for carly to smack sam to,that would have been good ,jason should have been told the truth about robin ,when he does find out he is going to be hurt and pissed.that he wasnt told.agree with what you said about kate.I was like in a state of shock when she turned up at johnnys door,I was not expecting that .

Sam is another character who is beginning to change. I think they are taking her off Jason’s lap and giving her a spine.
Ironically I recently was in a similar situation. When you want to see your loved one, and someone tells you NO, it hurts.

ROTFLMFAO! Yeah Kelly Sullivan is so great why you have most comments on this page wanting her GONE! G-O-N-E! Truth is the woman is HORRIBLE at acting. And that so-called Bensonhurst accent she has going on is TRAGIC! I don’t know if I should laugh or cry.

Teresa, I would probably cry if I were you. You stated laugh or cry. Someone who is as miserable about a character (talented & gorgeous) should cry for themselves. You asked.You see, there is no denying the talent or the looks. What people do not like to see is someone replacing a beloved character.
I am above that mentality. I enjoy good acting. And this Kate does the job.
So take your negative energy and cry. 🙁

This is also the same BLOG/PAGE that thought the writing of Robin’s death was so brillaint and the show was so fantastic.

Different strokes, for different folks I guess.

Theresa…this one is for you. Kate story is not original nor new, but only watchable because of Kelly Sullivan. Do you think OldKate could have pulled it off?
Not in this lifetime.

YEP Brenda will be back. Like Herpes, she never goes away!!!!! (JOKE)
What else does she have to do?

I want to talk to you about your comments ABOVE about Venesa Marcil. I made my comments too actually a few spots before your post. I’ll start here because I watching GH right now… But you think Marcil did a horrible job when she came back this time? U talked about her snorting when laughing, U think it was intentional? There was such a drastic change in the character/ the woman herself it was just unbelievable. She didn’t do the history of that character and the relationship any justice, in fact, she changed the perception of it somewhat. Imma get on with Barbara about this, cause Barbara tweets folks and writes everywhere, LOL. We need to tweet Venesa Marcil to come back and do that ROLE some service, it was a DISGRACE before God. Right now is a good time for her return, her best friend Robin just died.

BLAH!! Sorry, VM was 10 years ago. You can’t always go home again.
Do I think she snorted on purpose? Actually NO I don’t. I also saw NO chemistry between herself & Mo anylonger. Their sex scenes were shown AFTER they did it. No foreplay or chemistry. ZIP. And in life that does happen.
Couples lose the chemistry. Brenda was no more the love of Sonny’s life than what my favorite flavor ice cream is on that month! 🙂

I saw 2 high school girls together when her and Robin were together. Robin never acted juvenille unless she was around Brenda. Do I think Brenda should be contacted? Of course. But we don’t need her back. I would so much rather see back 2 better actors than to pay for the price of 1 VM. jmo

DEBI, Funny how you claim to have watched GH for 35 Years yet your comments come off as a NEWBIE! LMAO! Most of your comments are to bash a certain actress just cuz most folk on this page can’t stand the sight of Kelly Sullivan’s Kate and want her gone like yesterday! Tee hee. You are the only one I noticed keep making the same tired digs at VMG *YAWN*

SPEAKING OF HERPES – with the way they have Ms.Kelly Sullivan’s Kate behaving lately having strange men phone numbers on napkins, I’m sure Kate Skank cheated on Sonny and now have the disease. How’s that ?! Hmmmm this is what I’ve observed over the net where Daytime shows etc are concerned – bashing one actress to try and pimp up another who is failing Horribly is NOT gonna make that person look any better or magically give them the skill to ACT! LMFAO!

Unlike you, most comments on this page was about how terrible Kelly Sullivan is as Kate and they don’t feel she can act , However I don’t recall anyone bashing the actress looks. No that would be YOU. I’m sure the. Michael Fairman or whoever moderate this site see comments such as yours and wonder how old some ppl really are . There are several actresses I don’t care for but NEVER would I stoop as low as to bash the way I feel they look. Something called Class which you seriously lack.

Yes VMG will be back. She has a huge following ( Brenda fans / S&B fans etc ) whether you like it or not <———– FACT not an OPINION. I see each post that mentions of her returning you get your panties in a twist which I do enjoy by the way. LMAO! Because you're so obvious. HA! Speaking of Long Sleeves – I wear them too. And??? Vanessa is still beautiful. True no one stays the same forever. Ummm its called – LIFE. Brenda fans and General fans alike already admitted her last return was botched. And ?? You gonna have to come better than that. But Brenda isn't the one on-screen with Sonny right now – Connie/Kate or whoever the NUTJOB is at the moment. Lmao! The character reminds me of that movie " One Flew over the cuckoo's Nest!" But a bad remake! The chick is coo coo for cocoa puffs. One min she's jumping on Johnny boy….walking around in a bloody wedding dress ( I mean who keeps a bloody wedding dress anyaway?! Omg could only imagine the smell on that thing! – disgusting! ) and dont know up from down these days. Sure Brenda wasn't written accordingly to the core of her character the last go round….but guess what? She 's no psychopath. So you're RIGHT – no comparison between these characters! No matter how badly Brenda was written last time…….to even compare the two is insulting. So puhleeeeeeeeeease GMAFB.

I guess whether or not Brenda is the love of Sonny's life is one's opinion….but I know what I saw in year 1993 – the year Maurice Benard debuted as Sonny. The First Great Love story they gave his character was Brenda who debuted a year before him like a previous poster pointed out. So since you know every thing – I mean with you watching 35 years and all…..Name one woman the show paired Sonny up with in a love story before Brenda – well one that was actually shown on-screen??? Hmmm I watched for 27 years and I know the answer to that one. Do you? *Snicker* 😉

If you have watched for 27 years, then I suggest you grow up.
I know what I saw in 1993. And what I saw in 2010. Very different. I don’t live in the past. Too smart for that. In reality, the past is the past. People change.(except you)

Are you threatened by the length of time I have viewed GH?? Don’t be, its not fun growing up and getting old. You would know that as well if you came out of lala land.
I don’t dislike VGM. I dislike the character of Brenda. She came back to the set, and that was the worse year GH had. The cost to bring her back, the promos, all were for nothing. She was disapointing. I could care less if you agree with that or now.
It is the truth.
As far as Sonnys ‘true love’? Whoever is available that month. You ask who before Brenda? Supposingly there was quite a list. They were his past. Just like Brenda is now. If you think Brenda was so HOTT in 2010 and her acting was so great, why is she off the show? Because she was laughed off the show. What kind of actress snorts when she laughs?? Or skips at 42? The character was laughable and was the final nail in the coffin for GH.

You don’t appear to be a very mature adult, so if I were to guess, you wouldn’t understand that people GROW in life. Brenda went from a 30 year old beautiful actress to a 14 year old locked in a 42 year old body.
Until she comes back, and does better, you with your idiotic thoughts will not change my mind. Too bad if its not the popular vote here on the BLOG. It is on most other blogs.

What is your obsession with Kate?? All you do is compare everything backk to her. She is a great actress, I am entitled to feel that way, and if you don’t like it, skip my posts.

Did I answer all your idiotic comments?? Who cares if I didn’t. *snicker* 🙂

Oh Oh I am regressing to your low standards. Me bad. 🙁

@ Debi:
” abc said……….
I’m a damn lookalike.. LOL
LMAO! I was thinking the same about me. lol ”

* I didn’t realize the “abc” you were talking about was me until JUST now 5:30 pm. Though, I didn’t get affended because I am HARDLY strenching the truth; face, body or talent; we already know, I’m educated.

YES YOU! lol I don’t come to this site often, so I am not familar with what people like to be called.
And honesty, Michael has some a great site. Very imformative. I am surprised at the nastines of some fans.

I definately believe you are beautiful inside & out. And talented.
ditto for me, minus the talent. Haven’t found my ‘talent’ yet in life!

I’m new to GH, though I kinda know what’s happening through web sites and SOD/SOW. Naturally, I am delighted with and wait with great anticipation for the OLTL characters to come on. I was impressed by the way Starr will be incorporated. Bold move. The actor who plays Michael does a wonderful job. I fast forward through Sonny and Kate ~ anything Kate. Don’t like Maxie and wasn’t impressed by Patrick in the scenes leading up to Robin’s death. We’ll see how he does in the aftermath. However, I am rivieted by anyting with Luke, “the Doger”, Dante, Michael, Tracy, Epiphany, Anna, Mac, Robert, Holly, and Helena. Spenelli is different, but haven’t seen enough of him, Matt, Johnny, Monica or Olivia to form an opinion. With such a huge cast, I guess that’s true with a number of actors on GH. We’ll see. I like Carly, though I may be a little bias since I watched her on GL. Sam and Jason…don’t really care one way or the other. However, Sams’ tiff with Carly was brilliant, so I’d like to see more of that. That’s just this new-comer’s opinion.

Should GH continue Rodd, whether its Kate or someone else, Ron likes writing duo personalities. For some reason, they were popular for OLTL. I never liked them. Going back years I would tune out while some storylines played out about all the personalities.

*scratching head* I’m sorry are you an ABC Rep or something to Guarantee this?? Seen this already. So what? Its some of the same drivel we heard about AMC & OLTL being “save” please! Until a rep from ABC actually comes out and do a press conference and say those words “GH is Safe”…..No Vid or Article tells the truth about anything…..and GH is NO safe now than before . The show is still on LIFE SUPPORT.

No I am not a rep. I think positive. It beats the alternative.
Try it! 🙂

Liked seeing Kassie DePaiva. I’m guessing Todd wasn’t w/her b/c he’s on the run from John? He’s keeping a low profile, not sure? I thought he’d be alongside Blair.

Looking forward to Luke’s and Robert’s scenes next week. They always pick up where they left off, long time friends.

Hope Dante got rid of that damn bloody wedding dress. Can some chuck it already!!! Seems to be a dumb trigger for Kate’s DID. Let’s chuck it and see what happens:)

It was sweet seeing Tracey and Edward. You could see the pain in Edward’s face. Poor Edward.

Paris and Lisa I so agree with you both!! VMG is amazing, gorgeous (saw her person recently…stunning!) and talent. She is a vet and S&B are a supercouple who bring ratings. Kelly Sullivan needs to go! She is a joke and so is Sonny and Kate. Sonny and Brenda are soulmates and he said so when they got married last year! 20 years of real history tell me that.

Sonny & Kate has more chemistry then Sonny & Brenda. VMG isn’t coming back get over it! Kelly Sullivan is here to STAY!

Please Sonny and Brenda are a supercouple for a reason. Their chemistry is magic and has been for 20 years. Kate is a joke and so is Kelly Sullivan. Kelly needs to GO! And VMG will definitely be BACK!!


As I said above, you’re certainly entitled to your opinion, and there’s no accounting for taste, but VMG indicated long ago that she WILL be back. People are inclined to take her word over yours, so perhaps you should “get over it.” Furthermore, Sullivan’s portrayal of Kate has done zilch to raise ratings, even with her acting opposite Benard, while Sonny and Brenda’s wedding sent ratings through the roof. That speaks volumes to me about which couple has more chemistry and which acting duo is better.

I don’t think Sonny & Kate are the ‘IT’ couple. That far I won’t go.
What I am saying is I like Kates acting. IMO she is gorgeous as well.

As for Sonny, the only love of his life (for those of you who have watched GH for many years) is himself.

I loved so hard back in the day too. Today I am a different person. I could never love like that again. We BOTH would need to grow together. With Brenda & Sonny this wasn’t how the story played out.

I just have one more brilliant comment to make. VGM has no say so if she comes back.
Sorry, but it doesn’t work that way.

Do I think she will be back? YES to escort Sonny off when & if he leaves.

Me-NOT sure if Kate is here to stay or not. Then again does anyone know the future of GH??
All I know is Kate is playing a role that I can’t stand. I can’t and won’t hold it against the actress. I think she has great talent and is very beautiful.
Bad Bad storyline. But that is Ron’s writing. He did it at OLTL.

As far as Sonny goes, I LOVED his chemistry with Tams when she played Carly. Other than that, Sonny only loves himself.

every time I come here I read all the different people who want alot of the characters to go ,I hear carly ,liz .sonny,jason,sam danti kate ,maxi,even spinellie ,I dont get it,why,there all a part of port charles if your going to do that you might as well forget about general hospital,I have a problem with the newbees I can understand them being shown the way out the door ,but not the characters that have been on forever,if you do that ,general hospital is done with ,I hate sonny ,dont like jason,but I dont want them gone.lets get rid of the newbes but you cant wipe out the whole cast,doesnt make sense there are always a few you dont like ,but thats what makes the stories interesting,at least for me.

Good post Barb T and you are correct.

My current problem is how they dealt with Robin’s death. They really should have focused more on that when it happened.

@ Deb: ” I loved so hard back in the day too. Today I am a different person. I could never love like that again. We BOTH would need to grow together. With Brenda & Sonny this wasn’t how the story played out. ”

-Very Interesting. But not sure where you are coming from, statement came out of blue.
-How do you think their story played out? (With regard to your statement).

Let me hope I can explain this. The man I LOVED so hard at one time, long time ago, is no longer the same man. Nor am I the same women. Unless 2 people work and grow together, things change.
When Brenda came back this past time, I saw a child. A women who regressed into a child. Not a grown women. The giggling, snorting, long sleeves, skipping was juvenille.
I LOVED Brenda back in the day. But that day is over.
I wish people would see that. I also, last time she was on, so NO chemistry with Sonny like I did the first time.

People are dillusional if they think you can go back in time. You can only move forward. Had Brenda shown and acted as a 42 year old, I would easily of accepted her.

It is wonderful that this specific blog has so much admiration and love for her. Not every blog does though.

We are allowed to come on here to voice an opinion. Not be called names because I won’t agree with the majority. You get nowhere in life being a follower. This is my opinion, and instead of arguing and name calling, (NOT you) skip and ignore my posts.. 🙂

Yes Barb: I am aware I sent a response to the wrong Barbara. And (Barbara) was most gracious and informed me of my error. I was blown away thinking U knew all those former cast to that show. Naturally I was going to tell you today, BUT you got to me first about it. U comb this site dry huh Barb? U don’t miss a lick on here. This is either an extended family of sibling rivalry on here, or definitely a community. Have a Wonderful Day!

you have a good day to

I would love to see Roxy (Ilene Kristen) work at Kelly’s. Sonny’s dad Michael Sr (Ron Hale). use to work there and they both use to be on “Ryan’s Hope”. So it would be a cool nod. Also, Roxy is like “Aunt Ruby” back in the day, fiesty, a tell it like it is kinda broad. Luke would like Roxy and her Roxy-isms. Roxy could have a romance too. Good comedic injections.

Please Roxy come to Port Charles!
The other’s can go! I’ll keep Howarth because of St. John, and the story of the two Todd, and Tea to support her husband and an occasional drop in from Blair as the best friend of Tea, and ex wife of Victor and Todd. Starr can go, she is not needed. You can find ” that type of character ” on any soap opera. Starr is not a Roxy, Vicky, Opal, a Spenelli…. character’s that are irreplaceable bc of the type of content they put out.
Aftter the story of the two Todd’s play out, then Roger Howarth can go too!

Wow ”Lisa” told me . . . Im Sorry that I don’t share your opinion on the Kelly Sullivan subject . But the last time I checked, I am pretty sure that we are entitled to our individual opinions on this board. So if you don’t agree with mine & feel the need to ”school or scold” me on it, please spare yourself the effort. I am here for positive exchanges and discussions. Thank-you.

LMAO again! I have had to say these same words on here. Have a glass of wine before bed-time and it gets Halarious!

We are entitled to our own opinions. And as adults, we shouldn’t resort to name calling because we have nothing positive to say.. Or lost for words.
Don’t you need to be a certain age to get on these blogs??

(Not talking about you Shamrock lol 🙂 )

The person I would like to see gone next is Kelly Sullivan! Her acting to me seems she is always constipAndd and shows no real emotions. Sorry that’s the way so many people see her. She is cocky and seems to think she is the next meshia qnd shes not. No knew who she was until she came to GH. I for one tuned out GH just because of her poor acting. Sorry but she in one i wont cry for if they boot her out. VMG she has proven herself in daytime, primetime and in movies. She has one of the strongest following. Yes we do wan’t her back. Not just 10 fans but in the hundred 1000’s.

Sorry Sonny and Kate proved to suck in the ratings. I don’t see any chemistry what so ever with the actors. Tuned them out because they are pure boring. Ugh

For the poster name Debi! That’s your opinion about SnB, but it sures is not the opinion of 4 million viewers that tuned in for the wedding. I guarantee you that Skates wouldn’t even have gotten a 100 views. SnB bring in ratings while skates proved to sink the damn titanic. Also as for you or anyone to speak about a character that’s not even on canvas speaks volumes and is threaten by her. I know for a fact Brenda will be back and sonny will be like Kate coco puffs who?

Why was the wedding so popular?
The fact Carly was on the lose to tell everyone about Brenda had no bearing on the wedding ?? You honestly think 4 million people tuned in just to see Brenda?
I watched the wedding. I happen to think VGM gave her best performance that week.
But it only lasted a week.

You know NOTHING for a fact. Brenda will ‘probably’ be back to leave Pt Chuckles with Sonny. The end.

Kate is coco puffs. That is the writing from Ron. He LOVES duo personality storylines. He is bringing his style to GH. Can’t blame her for the writing. She is talented and gorgeous and that is how she got the role.
They did not want to bring old Kate back. So people, get over it.

Looks to me that Debi has a VMG complex. Any idiot that bashes a actress or actor has major insecurities with in themselves. VMG is an my winning actress. What do you have to show for yourself or KSu nothing, zip, zero. Your a disgrace to the human race. Anyway watch for VMG next month idiot.

WTF is a vgm complex??

You ask what do I have to show for myself?
1) Triplet boys and an older child
2) Masters degree in Business
3) Gorgeous estate in Highland Park, Il.( Down the street from where Michael Jordan lived)
4) I worked hard my entire life. I have acheived alot. So when morons come on here and try posting to me, I usually don’t bother with them. We are on different mentalities in life.Mine being lots higher!! 🙂

That is just a start of what I have going for myself. And you?? 🙂

I think you are a description of ‘disgrace, ignorance, idiot, insecure’.
YEP that is what I think of people like you. lmao is life on Trailor Park Drive??

I agree Michael. When someone is called an idiot like I was, that person should be deleted or blocked from here. If she isn’t old enough to show respect for others opinions without calling names, I say BLOCK her.
Or at least BLOCK her from me.

This forum is about expressing opinions. That we are all entitled to.
Should someone disagree, please don’t resort to name calling. That in itself shows how ignorant you are reaching.
Be an adult. Or go play in someone elses sandbox with other children! 🙂

We LOVE Venesa Marcil……………. plain and f*cking simple!
Nomatter how she ages, or has aged or anything she may or may not have done to her face, I will always love her because I remember her HUGE contribution she bought to the table as BRENDA. I dont care how she protrayed Brenda this time around, but that DOESN’T negate her contributions in the past and her legacy to the character and the show. PERIOD.
I dont know what happened this time with her dressing, that laugh, or any of the rest. (I’m not sure about snorkling). It seemed odd bc when you listened to her in REAL LIFE interviews she has MATURED into a certified adult, speaks with vision and pursue’s interest of humanity, and helping people with her own charity. So I don’t know what the Spin on her protrayal was this time. Maurice Benard said in an interview they were so in sync, they could finish one another’s sentences in rehearsal’s, and knew the other’s thoughts. So, that’s a mystery, none of us can come up with the answer for, as to why she was protrayed this way. But again, as I have said this about Oprah, ‘ just because something is happening now that we “don’t agree” with OR like, that doesn’t NEGATE what the person has done over’all…’ Ok, her protrayal wasn’t the finest this time; the writer’s bare part of the responsibiltiy. But Venesa Marcil is an award winning actress in daytime, proven herself in primetime and movies, and NEVER ever… plays the same “adoring ” part, patronizing her beauty. That woman is STILL stunning dispite whatever…. and is more attractive than most on daytime. If Venesa lost her beauty as Debi stated, then Blair certainly lost her’s. People aren’t bashing Kassie, and it in NO WAY EVER compared to Venesa’s beauty. Venesa was so memorizing that Prince wrote a song in her honor ( a soap actress who wasn’t mainstream Go Figure) naming her as the MOST BEAUTIFUL GIRL in the world; and the worman has a body too. She has been on the most beautiful list, rightfully deserved. ” Other than ” Luke and Laura, Sonny and Brenda is the most POPULAR COUPLE in daytime history, and certainly HOTTER than Luke and Laura ever was! They weren’t just a popular couple U loved to watch, U fell in love with BOTH of them; they were simple BONITA! Beautiful down right GORGEOUS, and were certifiably CONVINCINGLY in love! With the popularity of Sonny and Brenda, how could anyone deny that she was the love of Sonny’s life? That’s evident in the media blizz/ marketing ABC paid to promote her return. No soap actress EVER got that kind of fan fair for a return, so that negates that point about her not being ” the Love of Sonny’s Life”, or even the power she has in daytime. ” Sonny didn’t go/leave with her”. Because he couldn’t!! Come on people, it’s a soap! Maurice Benard has a family to feed. That’s what I mean about BASHNG unjustly, when we know him not “going” is dictated by the writer’s. If they wanted him off the show, Sonny WOULD have gone with her. Noone can compare Kate to Brenda in terms of love with Sonny OR beauty. And I’m not being bias, becaue I didn’t like the other Kate for Sonny either. Any (type) actress opposite Maurice Benard does not compliment him. It takes a special type-she doesn’t have to be the most beautiul like Venesa, Laura Wright, or the Hannah character, but she has do have something RARE about her ( IF ) she isn’t. Sarah Brown I hated opposite Maurice, but one couldn’t deny she” brought it ” and was a “power house” opposite him, and “same ” with 2nd Carly, Tamara Braun. Venesa and Laura Wright have the best of BOTH, opposite Maurice Benard. U have to have one, the other or both, opposite him. This Kate and the previous Kate brings nothing extra-ordinar, OPPOSITE this complex character and actor. They, nor some of the (others) didn’t compliment him as a couple. I’m buying no magazine with them on the Cover, that’s for sure. Bring on Olivia, or Claire (loved her flirtatious scenes with him, plus she could hold her own in battle) or reunite Sonny with Carly, until Brenda returns for her man.

* Hats off to General Hospital for producing the Most popular Couple(s) in Daytime History. NO ONE thought daytime would EVER see anything as close as a Luke and Laura was. But they did, with Sonny and Brenda..!!!

* A nod and bow deserved to Mark Teschner, who cast them.

where did Debi say she lost her beauty?
My point is, I don’t enjoy watching a women behave like a 14 year old when she is a grown up. I think that is valid. I don’t understand the pedalstool people put the character on. She isn’t worthy of it imo. I am entitled to my opinion.

NICE she has such support on this blog. Because I have not seen it much elsewhere. I do agree, in real life, she comes across completely different than her character. But we are talking about her character, not the actor.

I really think that Brenda & Sonny were no more a SUPER couple as Jax & Carly were for me. Or going back in time Frisco & Felicia.
We all have our favorites. Brenda was one of mine back in the day.
Her last appearance on the show was horrific. Sorry, but I expect better performances when I watch something on tv.

I will have to assort through the pages on this board to find it, but you said she lost her beauty. Don’t worry,” WE ” all will, including you, (if we are so fortunate to be blessed with extra-ordinary beauty). I have it, therefore take offense to anyone saying someone lost their beauty. But for a BEAUTIFUL woman (born that way) even in old age, they NEVER loose it. U will always see it in their face, and can imagine what they looked like “when”…. It is written that Brenda and Sonny are the ‘Most Popoular Couple ” in daytime, after Luke and Laura…. Their popularity was like Rock Star status. And everyone knows they were the HOTTEST…!

iloveabcsoaps…this is rediculous. Not everyone agrees with you or this blog on vgm’s beauty & talent. Nice to see she has fans stil over here thoughl.
YES she did lose her looks from back in the day. She looks nothing like she did.. however that is my opinion along with others.
(not on here obvious)
I watched her on a talk show shorty after she left GH, and she looked healthier and behaved her age. What a difference that made.
Anyway, for me Sonny & Carly are NO longer the supercouple they were back in the day.
Should she come back to GH I am sure it will be very temporary. Who knows, maybe she would come to her bff’s funeral??? Wouldn’t you all be excited then.
DONE talking Brenda. Busy day today, and I honestly don’t care enough about her to waste another minute defending what is so obviously clear.

Enjoy your day…….70’s here.

Whoops..lots of typos…I meant to say Sonny & Brenda NOT Sonny & Carly!

Who says Brenda & Sonny were the most popular couple in history?
Or people on this blog??

You won’t find such loyalty to her on most sites. I am not being mean. I am simply stating facts. Sorry you don’t agree, maybe we are watching different shows?

I went to my usual blog (WUBS) for GH. People respect each other. We even laugh together on how we disagree.
I just posted a question, who would want to see Brenda come back.
Here is 2 responses:

”I actually wouldn’t mind Brenda coming back, if the story and character were written properly, and if VMG would play the character the way she used to. I would NOT, however, like to see her back with Sonny.’

‘I would rather watch paint dry on a wall than to have to endure her character again.’

I guess not everyone is a Brenduh fan!

hey debi,thanks for the scoop on (WUBS)never been there before.

Barbara T. Very respectful of one another there. Glad you enjoyed it.
I happen to think Michael has great articles!

Daytime Emmy Lead Actress Nominee Luncheon; The Tradition Continues

On Sunday, it was Mishael Morgan’s (Amanda Sinclair, The Young and the Restless) turn to host the annual Lead Actress nominee luncheon, for this year’s talented woman who are going for gold at the upcoming 50th annual Daytime Emmy Awards on Friday night, December 15th on CBS.

Morgan took home the Daytime Emmy in this category in 2022 becoming the first Black actress in the now 50-year history to ever win it. In a tradition that was started by four-time Daytime Emmy winner Susan Flannery (Ex-Stephanie, The Bold and the Beautiful), the winning actress from the previous year has to pick up the tab, choose a restaurant and host a fun afternoon gathering for this year’s crop of nominees.

Attending the festivities were 2023 Lead Actress nominees: Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea, The Young and the Restless), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis, The Young and the Restless), Sharon Case (Sharon, The Young and the Restless) Finola Hughes (Anna, General Hospital), and Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy, The Bold and the Beautiful).

Mishael (Last years winner) put together a brunch that was BEYOND spectacular with gift bags even!! I mean Mishael, you are an absolute class act. Thank you for the beautiful day 🧡”

Finola Hughes posted her sentiments as well, “Yesterday was the leading ladies lunch for the Emmy’s. It’s a tradition started by the inimitable Susan Flannery. (The previous years winner throws a luncheon for the nominees). Yesterday was a very special lunch. Mishael Morgan raised the bar! The conversation was at once light hearted and deep. This was an amazing group of women, supportive, funny and caring. Thank you all for a brilliant few hours 💕 🌸 ✨”

Posting on their Instagram Stories were Michelle Stafford who gave us a little more behind the scenes of the luncheon, where Mishael also handed out a gift bag to each of the ladies, and Sharon Case who accompanied her photos with the tune “This One’s For the Girls” by Martina McBride.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom Shares Heartfelt Message to Mark His 30-Year Anniversary as Dr. Kevin Collins

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 30 years since back on December 3rd, 1993, when General Hospital viewers got the shock of their lives as the ABC soap opera introduced the psychiatrist twin brother of serial killer, Ryan Chamberlain, in the form of Dr. Kevin Collins.

For soap fans that meant we got to see even more of one of the finest actors ever to appear in the genre in Jon Lindstrom. The talented actor started on GH a year and half earlier in June of 1992 as Ryan.

Fast-forward to 2023 and Lindstrom is in the running for this year’s Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series when the 50th annual Daytime Emmy Awards are given out in less than two weeks on Friday night, December 15th on CBS. Could an Emmy on his 30th year playing Kevin and Ryan be in the cards? Stay tuned.

It has been well-documented that former GH creatives Wendy Riche (ex-EP), Claire Labine (ex-head writer) and Michelle Val Jean (ex-writer) were all instrumental in keeping Jon in Port Charles with a second role as Kevin, when he could have headed to As the World Turns at the time to play the role of Damian Grimaldi, that eventually went to Paolo Seganti.

Taking to his Instagram on Sunday to acknowledge this special milestone, Jon shared via video message, “I woke up this morning to see that today December 3rd, marks 30 years since I debuted as Dr. Kevin Collins on General Hospital. I knew that it had been a long time, but 30 years since the doppelgänger to Dr. Ryan Chamberlain was introduced. It really is remarkable. It’s been a great ride, a great run. it’s like an entire career right there. I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. It’s just been great.”

Lindstrom paid tribute to those who helped create Kevin, expressing, “I have a lot of people to thank about that, let alone people like Wendy Riche and the brass at ABC at the time … Claire Labine who was writing the show back, but Michelle Val Jean was really was the one who I had the pleasure of working with to develop and bring to life Kevin Collins. She’s still a great friend today. So, there’s been a lot of blessings around this for me, and don’t think, I don’t know it. I pretty much drop to my knees every day in gratitude. Thank you world for supporting Dr. Kevin Collins and Ryan Chamberlain, for that matter. I’ll do it as long as they’ll have me.”

Accompanying his video, Jon wrote: “So grateful today for my 30 years of ‘Kevin Collins’ (and ‘Ryan Chamberlain’) on General Hospital, and for the wonderful journey my life has been, for my friends, my the family and incredible opportunities I’ve had. Hope you all have much to be grateful for.”

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Are You For or Against Kristina Being the Surrogate for TJ & Molly’s Baby Knowing the Storyline Implications Down the Road?

As many GH viewers have predicted, things have swung back around to Kristina (Kate Mansi) seemingly being the most viable option in Molly’s (Kristen Vaganos) mind to carry her and TJ’s (Tajh Bellow) baby as their surrogate.

If you recall, Kristina offered a few months back and was shut down by Molly, and then TJ, as the couple then went looking through agencies to find a surrogate to carry their baby to term. The surrogate they found, Andrea, told TJ she lost the baby in a miscarriage, which was confirmed by a doctor at Mercy Hospital, and she won’t go through trying to have a baby again. Leaving the couple devastated. But, is her story suspicious?

Last week on General Hospital, Molly was overwhelmed when having to look through a file to start the process of finding a surrogate and identifying the right candidate all over again and it brought her to tears. Kristina found her in the park, and that led the two to have a heart-to-heart conversation. While the two sisters have come to an agreement, now it comes to convincing TJ that this is the right move.


However, fans of the show can see how complex this will be for everyone down the line. If Kristina’s relationship with Blaze (Jacqueline Grace Lopez) moves further down the line, will she be so willing to give her sister the baby? Could there be an ugly court battle for the little one between two moms vs. TJ and Molly?  Will Kristina having their child, bring TJ and Kristina actually closer together, and cause rifts in Molly’s relationship with her man and her sister? What does the long-running soap opera have in store in the storyline by making Kristina the ultimate surrogate? Or, could Kristina lose the baby, only to find out that Andrea, the original surrogate has TJ and Molly’s child? So many possibilities.

Soap Opera Digest spoke to Kristen Vaganos on where Molly’s head is at with the situation. Vaganos shared, “I think there’s a little bit of desperation there, wanting to take a route that might be more trustworthy. (Surrogacy is) such a hard process to put trust and hope into because anything can happen. And Molly is a control freak! She wants to control as much as she can, so having a relative involved is, I think, comforting in a way.”

In terms of how Molly will re-approach TJ with Kristina being the prospective surrogate, Vaganos added, “Molly knows that it’s going to be an uphill battle, convincing him. Kristina’s track record with TJ is what it is. But it’s another leap of faith that Molly wants to take, and she just wants TJ to be on board with her. Plus, I think that TJ will really trust Molly’s opinion because Molly knows her better than anybody, and Molly would be the first person to doubt Kristina, to make sure to double-check her work. So if Molly says that she really feels strongly about this and thinks it’s the right decision, I think that’ll go a long way. I think TJ will take that to heart. But unless he’s on board with it, too, it’s a nonstarter.”

So, how do you see this playing out and what do you want to see? Are you in favor of Kristina being the surrogate for Molly and TJ’s baby? Are you for or against it, and what it could mean for long-term story implications? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
