LISTEN TO THE BROADCAST: Soap Nation Live! with Michael Fairman with Co-Host Kelly Sullivan & Guests: Scott Clifton, Darin Brooks, Vinessa Antoine and Scott Elrod!

Last night on the November edition of Soap Nation Live with Michael Fairman, we welcomed our very special in-studio co-host The Young and the Restless Kelly Sullivan (Sage) for a lively and entertaining 90 minute broadcast.

Michael and Kelly welcomed their “Soap Nation Live November Sweeps” line-up of guests throughout the show which included: The Young and the Restless Scott Elrod (Joe), The Bold and the Beautiful’s Darin Brooks (Wyatt) and Scott Clifton (Liam), and General Hospital’s Vinessa Antoine (Jordan).

Kelly Sullivan discussed throughout the episode myriad of Y&R related topics including: what it has been like for her working with the new Adam Newman … Justin Hartley, what is potentially going on between Sage and Adam, and why Sage was dressed in a cloak at the church when she was apparently spying on Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan)! Kelly also reveals how she got the call from Y&R’s EP Jill Farren Phelps that the number one soap had a new role specifically in mind for Kelly.

Scott Elrod of The Young and the Restless was the first guest of the night.  One of the newest cast members called-in and admitted he too is trying to figure out what angle, his character of Avery’s ex Joe Clark, is working! Plus, Scott talks about his time on the series Men in Trees and working opposite Anne Heche, and that his mom is a big fan of the soaps.  Then, Scott chimes in on what he thinks of some of his male co-stars including: Steve Burton (Dylan) and Colin (Tristan Rogers).

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Darin Brooks (Wyatt) and Scott Clifton (Liam) joined Michael and Kelly (Nathan) in-studio to preview the November Sweeps Amsterdam storyline which kicked-off this Friday on the CBS soap opera.  The duo also commented on the shocking news this week for fans of the series, that their longtime co-star Kim Matula (Hope) has decided to leave B&B and has already taped her final scenes.  Later, Darin and Scott played a hilarious game show segment designed specifically for them entitled, “Which Bro Said DAT?”  In it,  Kelly and Michael read lines of dialog said by either Liam or Wyatt, and Scott and Darin had to try to recall and figure out which one of their characters said it!

General Hospital’s Vinessa Antoine joined Michael and Kelly later in-studio where we got the skinny on what is up with DEA agent Jordan Ashford!  Vinessa also revealed she loves working with Tony Geary, who is now back taping at GH after his medical leave and vacation, and that she does know the true identify of whoFluke” truly is! The talented star also chimed in on: getting the opportunity to work with one of her childhood idols, Finola Hughes (Anna), what she thinks of of the chemistry with her on-screen beau, Sean Blakemore, what she thought of the scenes where Jordan took the rap for Ava running over Jason Morgan, and being tied up in bubble wrap thanks to Heather Webber (Robin Mattson).  The cutest moment of the night came when Vinessa’s young son called in to ask a question to his mom!

Now below listen to the entire broadcast of Soap Nation Live! with co-host Kelly Sullivan, and then let us know what your favorite moment of the episode!

I enjoyed the interview with Vinessa Antoine and Kelly Sullivan. Thanks for sharing Michael. Not surprised at all that Vinessa Antoine stated she liked working with William DeVry. Their chemistry jumps off the screen!

Finally, Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) has the task to report to Carly (Laura Wright) what happened to Carly’s bestie and almost husband!

How will Carly get through losing Jason and as she gets closer to the truth that Nina (Cynthia Watros) and Sonny had a romantic past and lingering feelings for each other, while the two were in Nixon Falls?  Will it all be too much for her to bear?

What will happen with Sam, now that Jason is gone, Drew is back ,and she is a new relationship with Dante?

Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson Share Disagreement with Each Other Over Vaccine Mandate; Will Continue ‘Stone Cold and the Jackal’ Shows In 2022

On the latest episode of their That’s Awesome podcast with Steve and Bradford, released over the Thanksgiving holiday, General Hospital’s Bradford Anderson (Spinelli) and Steve Burton (Ex-Jason Morgan) took some moments to address how Steve’s decision to not adhere to the ABC and GH Covid-19 vaccine mandate (which caused the two-time Daytime Emmy-winning star to be let go from the show) would affect their live shows, podcasts, content moving forward, as well as if it has caused a riff in their friendship.

When addressing listeners of the podcast, Anderson shared the the two would continue on with their projects, but that he disagreed with Burton’s decision to not follow the GH vaccine mandate.

Bradford expressed: “If you know us, and know are brand, if you will, it’s built on friendships, and like all friends, we have disagreements.  I disagree with Steve’s decision and he knows that. But over are years of friendships, we have had plenty of discussions about this and other topics, and sometimes we agree and sometimes we don’t, but at the end of the day we are still friends.”

Steve added: “We usually don’t get into decisive things on the show.  Look, I have a right to believe in what I want, and you have a right to believe in what you want, and that’s what makes this country great and we have never been about division.”  In addition, Steve was clear that he has not agreed to any interviews at this time on the subject of his exit, and that he is already moving on, sharing: “I am just grateful for my time at General Hospital and the people and the friendships I have made there, especially with the fans.  I have had an incredible life. Listen, I’m OK. I’m at peace. I ‘m moving forward and I am excited about it.  Like I said in my video, when one door closes, multiple doors open, and that’s what happened already.  I’ve gotten a lot of requests for interviews that I don’t want to do, because I don’t want division … that’s the bottom line.”

Look for Anderson and Burton to hit the road in 2022 and continue with their successful Stone Cold and the Jackal live comedy show and appearances.

Steve Burton Confirms His Exit From General Hospital

Steve Burton has spoken and after so much speculation, the two-time Daytime Emmy-winning star has confirmed he is out as General Hospital’s Jason Morgan.

In his post on his Instagram account on Tuesday, Steve shared that he was let go by the ABC daytime drama series due to their vaccine mandate and that even though he applied for medical and religious exemptions those were denied.  Thus, he has to exit his role.

In story, viewers saw on Monday, that Jason is MIA from being under the rubble of the cave that collapsed in Jason’s attempt to apprehend Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his post, Burton shared the following: “I know there has been a lot of rumors and speculations about me and General Hospital and I wanted you to hear it from me, personally. Unfortunately, General Hospital has let me go because of the vaccine mandate. I did apply for my medical and religious exemptions and both of those were denied, which, you know, hurts, but, this is also about personal freedom to me. I don’t think anyone should lose their livelihood over this. But with that being said, you know me. I’ll always be grateful for my time at General Hospital I love it there. I grew up there. I grew up with some of you, so I will always be grateful and I believe when one door closes multiple doors open. That’s always been my perspective, so I am excited to see what the future brings. ”

Steve went on to say, “Maybe one day when these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan. That would be an honor, and if not, I am going to take this amazing experience, move forward and be forever grateful. I have got to say, that I am forever grateful for your love and your support over the years. It means so much to me. Thank you. I don’t know when my last airdate is. It may have aired or it might be tomorrow or the next day. I am not sure. I want you guys to have an awesome Thanksgiving. I know it is hard, maybe, in this type of situation to be thankful or grateful, but we have so many things to be thankful about. Being grateful really is the key. Love you guys.”

The popular actor began his run as GH’s Jason Quartermaine back in 1991. Later in 1995, after a car accident he had a major personality shift and became Jason Morgan. Burton went to Y&R to play Dylan McAvoy for a four-year stint from 2013-2017, before heading back to his home at GH.

A source close to the show told Deadline that Burton’s last tape date was October 27th.

You can watch Steve’s video announcement below on his GH departure.
