Great news this morning!  Fan favorite, Leslie Charleson (Monica Quartermaine) who was dropped from the canvas is on her way back to the series.

Charleson last evening via sent out series of tweets from her twitter account which stated, “Monica’s back! Look for her to stir things up in July! For those of you who haven’t been watching, come back! AND she is MAD! Once again secrets have been kept from her. Remember all those things you all have been mad about her not knowing?? Well, NOW she KNOWS! Look for her to stir things up starting in July! SHE IS BACK!”
Could this be one of the first orders of business from new GH head writer Garin Wolf…. to return some of the old faves to the fold?  Stay tuned and welcome home Leslie! We have missed you.

I couldn’t be happier to have Leslie back. I’ve been calling GH comment line and begging for scenes with Jason and Monica for a long time. Sam’s character always encouraged their relationship and I’d hoped for more bonding between Jason & his mom every since Jason and Sam reunited. I sure hope this is a sign of more to come from Garin with our fav legacy characters! Leslie’s Monica adds a sense of much needed familial depth and history to the show. It just doesn’t feel like a true Quartermaine family scene without her.

I am thrilled Monica is going to be back on the canvas and involved in story. I do wonder if it has anything to do with the new head writer…when does his vision of GH begin to air?

If anything was going to get me to start watching gh when oltl ends….this could be it. I stopped watching after the Qs became supporting players. This is a step in the right direction. Now can we get Jason to be hit on the head and forget that he is mobster.

Is this the beginning of the end?? With AMC and OLTL going, are the fan favs returning to GH to possibly save it from the axe or is this a pre-emptive strike to say goodbye without giving fans notice? I hope it is the former. The writing needs to go back to be hospital centralized not mob centralized.

General Hospital Receives Honor From Ruderman Family Foundation

General Hospital was one of five television shows that has been named and honored by the Ruderman Family Foundation for their accurate depictions of people with disabilities.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the soap received the recognition for the casting of Maysoon Zayid who portrayed Shilohs’s (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) lawyer, Zahra Amir.

Zayid is an actress and disabilities advocate living with cerebral palsy. In addition, Maysoon is also one of America’s first Muslim women comedians.  Zayid said landing on GH was a “lifelong dream,” after finding it difficult to land roles due to her disability.

Along with GH, the foundation’s seal of authentic representation went to: Netflix’s Tales of the City and Raising Dion, and BBC/HBO’s Years and Years and Audience’s Loudermilk, great company for the ABC daytime drama series to be included with.

Jay Ruderman, president of the Ruderman Family Foundation expressed in a statement. “By giving credit where credit is due in Hollywood, we hope to inspire a broader, longer-term, industry-wide sea change when it comes to authentically casting actors of all abilities.”

In addition, Frank Valentini, executive producer of General Hospital stated: “Our goal has always been to provide stories that are authentic and relatable for our viewers. Having the opportunity to welcome Maysoon Zayid onto the show was exciting for us. She is an incredible talent and was a perfect fit to guest-star as Zahra Amir. It takes all kinds of people to tell a story; especially those that are rich and entertaining enough to resonate with our audience.”

Networks To Preempt Daytime Programming For Donald Trump Impeachment Hearing Coverage

Just as your favorite soaps are kicking into high gear for November sweeps next week, comes the news that due to the House public impeachment hearings on President Donald Trump, daytime programming will endure several pre-mptions starting with the first two on Wednesday November 13th and Friday, November 15th.

CBS was the first network to announce their plans for their extensive coverage, and according to the Washington Post all other networks have followed suit.  By this move by the networks it gives the hearing some extra weight and exposure to the American voters and viewing audience.

So far, leading network coverage for CBS will be reportedly anchored by Norah O’Donnell and for ABC George Stephanopoulos.

On Wednesday, the hearings begin at 10am EST, the second is scheduled for Friday beginning at 11am EST.

William Taylor, the U.S. diplomat in the Ukraine, is scheduled to testify Wednesday and on Friday Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, is scheduled to testify.

The networks are expecting big numbers for covering the hearings, as they have in the past for impeachment proceedings and hearings.

No word yet how the soaps plan for you to see the episodes that don’t air at their regularly scheduled times, or if it shifts your soap viewing schedule by several days.
