Well word on the street was out that General Hospital was looking to resurrect its classic Nurses Ball, especially with Robin believed to be “dead”, that event would become all the more meaningful and drama-filled.  And with that came speculation that Lynn Herring (Lucy Coe) would be making a return also! And now via Soap Opera Digest it has been confirmed!

Fan favorite Herring will be reprising her delicious role of Lucy on December 14th, when Lucy is sought out to lend her expertise with the event!  Remember all the wacky episodes where Lucy was in charge and running around trying to keep the Nurses Ball together? Or, from falling apart? Or, from all the last minute emergencies?

Herring’s return is just another fantastic blast from the past, that executive producer Frank Valentini, and head writer, Ron Carlivati, are delivering to long time fans of GH by bringing back some of the beloved vets!

So, are you excited to see Lynn again as Lucy Coe?  Do you like the idea of GH bringing back the Nurses Ball?  Let us know!

Best GH news of 2012 for me!

Great news! Lynn is greatly missed, she’d be a great addition. However, this sounds very temporary. Hopefully she’ll be asked to stay.

Wow!! Wonder if these are short term stints for Tristan, Sean and Lynn? Big canvas over there GH! Hope there is storytelling for everyone and not just fixtures in PC. Nice to see her back though!!

Jamie

I LOVE Lucy! Is she back long term or is this a shirt term gig??? So excited!!!!!

Andrew

Yes yes yes!! Nurses Ball… when Sabrina asked why it had been discontinued, I shouted out “because it was too much fun for the regime that took over and ruined this show!” Sorry, my mob-hate knows no end.

Anyway, LOVE Lynn Herring… she represents some of the best that this show has ever had to offer. Is she short term or open ended?

Not to be a downer, but I hope the presence of so many beloved GH vets isn’t a ‘last hurrah’ for the show. Now that the show is once again watchable, it would be great to enjoy it for years to come!

Violet
Violet

Yes, Andrew. I wonder the same about the “last hurrah”. I’m almost nervous to be excited for vets to return for this reason. I want them back soooooo badly and not just for a 1-7 day brief visit. More Qs! Bobbie! Laura! Robert!

Shut the front door. I could not be more estactic! Now just bring back Jackie Zeaman. Her character, Bobbi, and Lucy duke it out a few times in the past. We need a classic cat fight.

Emily
Emily

Yes, and I would love to see how they would explain Bobbi’s absence during Joslyns illness, Luke’s intervention, the water contamination, etc… Because she just left her shift one day & was (to the best of my memory) never scene or mentioned again.

I love that FV and RC are bring back in so many of the loved vets, even if for a limited time, it is awesome to see them again..
I wish there were a list of all the appearance and or longer term favorites vets that have been brought back since FV and RC took over., there are many. also the new characters created this past year.
And keeping with GH tradition the Nurses Ball will once again be enjoyed!!
I am totally loving GH It truly is alive and thriving under the new team of FV and RC!!

Christy

YEAH TO BOTH! I was wondering if the Nurses Ball would come back, especially after Emma brought out the photo album. I just went ‘ahhh. i miss Lucy…’ when they showed her photo.

would be great if Robin crawled in at the Ball… or even if she showed up backstage and Lucy could scream and think she was seeing Robin’s ghost rather than the real thing! 😀

This is AWESOME news!!! I always felt that the JFP regime gave Lynn the shaft. It was widely reported in the soap press that if spin-off Port Charles failed, that Lynn Herring and Jon Lindstrom would have guaranteed jobs back at the mother ship, GH. That was not honoured when PC was cancelled. I never liked or “got” the character of Lucy until Claire Labine wrote the show, and scripted the best storyline possibly in all of soap history…BJ’s heart transplant into Maxie. Lucy Coe, for the first time in her cartoonish existence, became a real flesh and blood character. Subsequently, I loved her!! The Nurses Ball was an integral part of the show for the better part of a decade!! It was something we viewers looked forward to each year, knowing that it would be an opportunity for storylines to converge and for the cast to shine. A lot of the heart was sucked out of the show under Guza and Phelps, and the Nurses Ball was part of that. Reinstating the Ball would go a long way towards showing viewers that the powers that be care! There are not currently as many characters on the show to root for as there used to be, but that can be worked on. Bring the event back!!

Fantastic!!! Frank and Ron are the best! Now, if they bring back Vanessa Marcil to write the true love story between Sonny and Brenda. The last time was horrible!

Wondering if she’s on contract, or recurring, or just a one or two episode deal. I hope she’s back for a long term story line. Also, for the love of soaps, bring back Jackie Zeman!! Can’t get over how good GH has been since Frank & Ron took over. They really know how to put together a good soap.

I hate to be a party pooper because I love me some Lynn Herring but December? Wasn’t this held every year for about six or seven years in a row in June?

Christy

The Nurses Ball was centered around the Day of Compassion.

the Day of Compassion was an annual tv event from 93-98 – that started on OLTL with the Billy Douglas storyline. The creator of the Day was so moved by that OLTL storyline, that he contacted the producers of all ten daytime dramas, suggesting that on June 21, their shows mention AIDS and HIV in some way.

World’s Aids Day is December 1 – that is global and started in 1988.

Hey, I’ll take The Nurses Ball in any month I can get it! December, June, August, March, whatever. I used to love watching them so much. There was an awful lot of hidden talent on that show that shined during The Ball.

I definitely can empathize with how you feel. I’m not quiet ready to tell Frank Valentini thank you yet, but I’m able to tweet him without telling him I can’t stand him, so I guess I’m on my way, LOL baby steps, right? It will be great to have Lucy Coe (Lynn Herring) back on. She is truly one of a kind.

I didn’t watch GH with her on it before, but I did catch a few episodes of PC and liked her there. GH is so good right now it’s crazy! I am sure this will only add more dynamic to an already great show. How long is she staying?

ANDI

When they mentioned Lucy Coe on air the other day with Emma and Sabrina talking about the nurses ball I wondered if she would be coming back. Hope they bring back the nurses ball too!

This is awesome news and hopefully another step in thr right direction! GH is getting as good as ever; have missed the Nurse’s Ball along with the Christmas story that Steve, and then Allen, read to the children every year That too would be a great addition/comeback!

This is the best GH news ever. Lucy Coe is my have GH character ever, and I can’t wait to have her back. The only thing to top it is if she stays on the show for a while. Lynn Herring as Lucy Coe always gave the show comedy, sex and sparkle, and GH could use that. (I even named one of my cats after Lucy.)

I can’t wait for the Nurses Ball! That was always something I looked forward to every year – I loved seeing the cast show their “other” talents. I think they should make it an extra long one to make up for all the years in between!

Vinessa Antoine Reveals She And General Hospital Have Parted Ways; After Landing Primetime Series Lead

After the fantastic bit of casting news for actress Vinessa Antoine  (Jordan Ashford) over the weekend, today, via her social media accounts, Vinessa has addressed her future with General Hospital.

As viewers know, Vinessa has been cast as the drama series lead in the new CBC production of Diggstown, and it is groundbreaking making her the first black actress to star in a series on the legendary Canadian broadcasting network,   Originally it was presumed that Antoine would go recurring on GH, while she was away filming, but that is not the case as she revealed in her heartfelt message today.  She and GH have mutually parted ways.

Vinessa’s statement: “There are so many people that God put into place who are directly and indirectly responsible for my time at General Hospital.  You know who you are. I thank you. I came into this world as an artist. My job is to create and inspire. I hope that I did that a little in playing #JordanAshford.

I believe that I have taken her as far as I can.  To clarify, as negotiations for #Diggstown were underway, although I am open to stay and play in Port Charles, I was told by my reps that GeneralHospital felt that my character would be off the canvas for too long for me to continue playing her.

With that, we decided to mutually part ways.  It’s time to make room for more women of color in prominent roles on television. I’m grateful to assist in that by starting this new chapter in my journey. I hope you’ll all come along. I feel blessed. Be well. xo”

An ABC rep told Soap Opera Digest that the role of Jordan is being recast.

So what do you think of Vinessa leaving GH for good? Share your thoughts via the comment section below and let’s wish her much success!

GH’s Vinessa Antoine Lands Primetime Series Will Make Canadian TV History!

Fantastic news for General Hospital favorite, Vinessa Antoine (Jordan)! The talented actress had landed the leading role in the primetime Canadian series, Diggstown!

The legal drama is scheduled to air this fall.  In Diggstown, Antoine will play Marcie Diggs, a top corporate lawyer who decides to dedicate herself to a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

This casting news will make Vinessa a part of Canadian TV history as the first Black Canadian actress to star in a prime-time drama on legacy network television, CBC.

Antoine spoke to the Toronto Star about her starring role, “When I first read the script I was really attracted to the notion that she was a corporate lawyer and she believed in the system. And when that crashed for her, life nudged her to do something extraordinary. And because I’m a woman of color, so many things connected. She’s complex, not stereotypical, and that’s refreshing.”

However as suspected, and according to the Toronto Star: “General Hospital fans will not be happy to learn that Antoine, who has been with the show since 2014, will no longer be a series regular when she starts shooting Diggstown in August.”

So, excited to hear Vinessa has been cast in a leading primetime series?  Comment below!
