Lisa LoCicero Signs New Contract With General Hospital! Are You Up for an Olivia & Sonny Pairing?

In this week’s Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now it reveals that General Hospital favorite, Lisa LoCicero (Olivia) has signed a new contract with the ABC soap opera.  LoCicero joined GH back in 2008.

LoCicero related to SOD about some initial concern about her current negotiations stating, “It was so funny because we were in contract negotiations at the time I got the call saying Olivia was going to get shot and I was like, “Uh, wait a minute  … (Laughs).  Of course, it has been planned for a long time but I still kept thinking, “Not a good time for a physical misfortune to befall your character (Laughs).”

So with LoCicero staying put in Port Charles and inking a new deal, and clearly the show intimating and moving towards a re-exploration of a romance between Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and Olivia, especially since they share a child together in Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), the question we pose to you GH fans is, are you up for an Olivia and Sonny pairing? Do you think they should end up together finally after all these years?  Clearly, with Connie soon out of the picture, or at least we think so (unless the show recasts),  with the upcoming departure of Kelly Sullivan, it paves the way for these two former lovebirds to try to find love and happiness with each other this time around in their lives! What are your thoughts on the matter? Let us know!

What is FF? If it means fast forward, that describes what I do to about 75% of the show these days.

These “headlines” bite some….. ie: No Connie… More Olivia….

and I get that…. she’s one of my girls’.

it just smarts – that GH and the production team… and that includes writing… couldn’t concieve how powerful a team they had.

it’s so obvious… ie: the lengths production will go to… for the tried and true (?).

Sonny and Carly.

I will say… Olivia is good at wrenching out all the stops and emotion with Dante… and I actually believe that she and Sonny will make a go of it… it’s all just missing something…. Connie.

Patrick
Guest

ie: GH storytelling.

#1. Daniel Edward. – was that telling that Silas is telling Sam to find a bone barrow doner immediately. Franco to the rescue.

#2. Maxie dancing and singing/talking to “her” baby… that ws touching.. and emotional.

#3. Mac and Felicia are getting MARRIED. LOVE this couple.

——

so… for what GH is… I still find snippets of good.

It all depends on his Mob status which is why she did not let Sonny know that he did have a son but then she ate her words and hooked up with Zachara. This storyline should be interesting

i’m happy for Olivia…..

and it’s not her doing…

all these happenings… w/no Connie. I think most can tell – Connie – was my new leading lady.

this will all take some getting used to.

YES, YES, YES. It is about time-long overdue! I would love to see Sonny & Olivia together. And I have always hated that Sonny & Alexis just had that ONE night-long ago. That was it. And if I remember correctly Sonny & current Carly have only had ONE night together! (in a limo when Michael was in the coma) To me Laura Wright is the best Carly & she & Sonny never got any good love scenes & Alexis only got that one night! I LOVE SONNY!

Bring Megan Ward back. Miss LoCicero is so lovely and would make an excellent pairing for any of the leading men but Sonny. I just don’t like selfish Sonny. I never have. She and Spinelli would make a cute couple crime solving team with her visions and the Jackal’s Internet savvy.

Yeah. I’d be open to it. I love their vibe so far, and there’s Dante between them. They could explore their Bensonhurst history as teens, and stuff.

So, I’m okay with it.

I agree.. when she is on screen she gets me worn out watching her hyper fits..
She comes off like a speed freak..
Really, she looks like she is a meth addict character..
She is way way way extreme jittery..
She needs to calm down and be in control of herself
It is hard to watch that character she needs a tranquilizer..

On the show, they have great chemistry together

Thank you! Olivia and Sonny have great chemistry and she can give him the loyalty he truly desires. I thought
we were headed for an all out love triangle before we all heard Megan Ward was leaving but now I think they’ll come together over her death or her death will be the angst between them.

is this the first time on GH… that they’re showing Sonny and Olivia together?

Mary SF

I was wondering that myself since I am fairly new to GH, so recently I read the back story on another web site and yes this will be the first time GH will show the romance. She was involved with Johnny and Steve, but not Sonny, at least not since they were teens– off camera.

Shirley A Miller

No, Sonny and Olivia were together quite a while back. I liked them together but then something happened (I don’t remember to be honest), but I think Olivia left Sonny around the time he shot Dante. Anyone out there with full story, sure would love to hear it!!!!!!

Catherine Jydstrup

This is 100% against Olivia’s character. If she was open to a life with an ongoing mob boss, she’d have stayed with him back in the day. Connie’s character was a MUCH better match for Sonny’s personality and lifestyle.

Sorry, I don’t see tgw chemistry between those two. It is a shame they are letting Kelly Sullivan go. Now, there is story and a boat load of chemistry!

it was all in the eyes….

the way they looked at each other…..

she beamed… was radiant. what man wouldn’t Love that…

it was equal footing…. and the tenderness they emoted together…. and she would have been great as the in this together two some…. Sonny and Connie worked.

Well I am sucker for the old teenage sweethearts getting back together when they are older and wiser storyline- that is why I was such a fan of Vicky and Jake’s relationship on AW. So I am willing to give these two characters their second chance for romance.

Another World rememberance…

Awww….. Vicky and Jake.
my favorite was Joe and Paulina.
Loved Rachel… (victoria wyndham and Carl)

for soap couples… Another World had it in spades…. Cass and Frankie – The TOP.
Sharlene and John? dag he oozed handsome. and all this is just the tip of what Another World is. like DAYS… NBC epitomized supercouples. can’t forget Cindy and Grant… what everyone idealizes as FUN.

The reason AW has been on my mind is because June 25th was the 14th anniversary of the last episode—-I can’t believe it has been that long— still can see Mac raising the wine glass in the final moment— oh well— just glad NBC didn’t follow through and cancel Days too, which they were about to back then— we wouldn’t be having all the fun stuff we are now enjoying if they did. But as AW Linda Dano said it best back in 99 when she said “My God! If you can get rid of Another World, you can get… Read more »

Yayness! I have been dying for an Olivia and Sonny pairing. If you weren’t touched by her risking her life to save Sonny then saying she would do anything for him when he asked her why, then I really don’t know what to say. As Sonny said, he won’t forget it, he was clearly deeply moved as well.

I love Lisa…I think she’s adorable…and her character is warm, vivacious and total Brooklyn! LOL…She adds a real touch of “family” to the show with her affection for her son and her loyalty to Connie. I’m very glad she’s staying on. As for her with Sonny, yes, it’s obvious they were going in that direction but I thought it would be interesting to see how it effects Connie/Kate….would it split up the cousins? Would Connie/Kate break apart agan…seems like they’re missing a good storyline here unless they’re recasting. Which wouldn’t make sense since Kelly’s so good in the role and… Read more »

see.. you just hit on the nail… as some other have said as well…

GH could have delved so much further in to Olivia and Connie… I know it’s too late… but… i think livia is a hoot as well…. her Brooklyn past – fiery mammacita… so… it was touching and effective what she has… with Dante and Connie.

like what you said…it’s like GH is dropping the ball again… with so much potential.

Kelly is so good…. glad i can stand on my soap box with some agreeing.

Mary SF
Guest
Mary SF

I don’t think there could be a romance while Connie was still in the picture. Olivia loves her cousin too much to go after her man, and I don’t think Sonny would see Olivia in a different light as long as Connie was in the picture. After the two have been together they could have Connie come back and then explored all that stuff you mentioned, but not during the “falling in love” phase of the relationship. My guess is Connie will see Olivia likes Sonny and she will leave town to give Olivia her shot with Sonny after all… Read more »

They are running of women for Sonny and now they need to recycle the old ones..
They are a terrible couple..
The only way the character Olivia would be watchable would be if she never spoke ..

She needs to find some class, be more dignified, look more intelligent, and be calm and in control..
Now she is hyper dinngy ding character ……………..

I love the idea of them together, and have since Dante came on the show. He needs one woman in his life, that isn’t entirely crazy (the LSD induced hallucinations aren’t here fault. LOL).

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

LOL… Livia certainly had a lot to deal with going on around her.

her LSD played out… and it’s still GOOD.

what with Connie’s alternate personality.
what with Steve’s mom… Heather wacko’ed out.

she’s had a lot of kooky going on … and she remained herself. I don’t know… I don’t see her in overdrive.

God… the LSD part certainly brought her around… dag! I thought her and Steve were so boring…. thankfully he’s gone… kinda like Daniel and Jenn on DAYs… Daniel could dissapear and I wouldn’t miss a beat.

Love Lisa as Olivia & Love me some Sonny! But would like for the story to be that their love to be a brother-sister love. I see no sexual chem between the two. If they are going to pair Sonny with someone new, then Ava has exactly what Sonny needs in a mate! She obviously can be his new Jason! “With Benefits”

su0000
Guest

Agree.. they have zero chem..
I can not picture them in hot passion or even a hot kiss, it just is not there..
A terrible couple..

All Sonny’s women end up in a very bad way, poor Olivia, no good comes from being with Sonny..

His new Jason, “with Benefits” LOL Karen- that’s too funny for words. Thanks for the laugh.

Ok… Pairing her with Sonny at this point is just out of character for Liv. Connie is like a sister to her and Liv is fiercely loyal. It would be a horrible thing for her to hook up with her cousins ex fiancée!!

”’Solivia”’ ?
Reads like a Kindergartner who hasn’t mastered to speak correctly..

Sonny and Olivia would be a terrible couple.
And her being with Sonny can be fatal, a good start to writing her out..

And being single and friends is a good thing too.

Dullivia is about as interesting as a can of Chef Boyardee. The arms flail, the mouth flaps, the eyes blink rapidly, and torrents of nonsense pour out of her ever-open mouth. She’s about as sexy as a roll of cookie dough and not quite that bright. So she’s PERFECT FOR SONNY. Yup, they’ve finally found the perfect pairing. Just think of the time – and brain power – we’ll get to save by FF’d through both of them. Nothin says Bensenhurst lovin’ like getting together with the guy who plugged your son in the chest. Now she can wait for… Read more »

I have been a long time viewer and was super excited that FV and RC were coming over to GH. In the beginning they rocked the show and turned it into something awesome to watch. All of the momentum and buildup to the 50th was well worth the return of the vets. Now certain characters have been further tarnished, banished, or written into a corner. The show has lost all momentum from the 50th anniversary and shows no signs of improving. Every time a story gets interesting it gets sidetracked. There is no romance because no one has chemistry.

I liked Olivia and Sonny together previously on GH, thought they had a lot of chemistry together. I guess the writers didn’t think so and broke them up. I am glad to see them getting back together ….. I feel as a couple they were more real than Connie/Kate and Sonny. So….. I am happy to see them give it another “go” …. until someone else comes along that the writers think has more appeal than Olivia. So let’s bring them on ….. Olivia and Sonny …… HOORAY!!!!!!

I won’t join the bandwagon of Olivia haters here! I am glad she signed back up with GH, but I do not want these two paired. I would LOVE the so called tired Sonny an Carly pairing! If Todd can’t come back, I don’t want her with anyone but Sonny! Olivia deserves an honest man… Someone new!

Kim Delaney on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “All They Have To Do Is Ask, and I’m There”

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.

TONIGHT: Kim Delaney Stars in Lifetime’s ‘The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’

Make sure to catch General Hospital and former All My Children and NYPD Blue star, Kim Delaney (Jackie, GH, Ex-Jenny, AMC) tonight on Saturday, February 20th when her highly-anticipated Lifetime movie debuts beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST which marks the cable network’s 400th original movie.

In The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, it tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island.

After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle, Hannibal) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long.

Delaney’s film, executive produced by Deborah Norville, is based off real life-events that transpired in the early 2010’s where the crimes were never solved.

In an interview with 98.1 WOGL Radio’s Glenn Kalina, Delaney shared: “There is hope in the film… but you also want an answer… what happened to all of these girls?  My character just was relentless trying to find her (daughter) or find answers where she was.  They found a bunch of other bodies, and what they learned was that they were all escorts… and then they learned there was a possible serial killer.”

Check out a promo for the movie below.

John Dietrich, who directed each of the ABC Daytime Salutes Broadway Cares concerts, wrote and directed the stream. It was presented in partnership with ABC Owned Television Stations’ websites around the country with support from Good Morning America and The View.

According to Broadway World, in total, the ABC Daytime Back on Broadway event raised $130,565. The streaming total includes a matching donation of $50,000 made by Broadway Cares supporters The Dream Alliance.  Now, when combined with the seven-year run of the annual concerts, the ABC Daytime stars have raised $2,020,565 for Broadway Cares.
