It’s big week for fan favorite and legacy GH star, Kimberly McCullough (Robin Scorpio Drake)!  The actress-turned-director will have her Pretty Little Liars directorial debut with the episode she crafted airing this Tuesday, January 26th on Freeform (formerly ABC Family) at 8PMEST.

The episode entitled, “The Gloves Are On,” also features none other than former Days of our Lives star Blake Berris (ex-Nick) who makes his debut in the recurring role of Damian Hayes in Kimberly’s episode.

McCullough discussed her Pretty Little Liars directorial gig with ABC Soaps In Depth where she revealed the process of making an episode of the popular series, and turning it in when her work is completed.

Kimberly expressed: “After the director’s cut, the producers cut it again, and then the network cuts it after that.  I don’t see the final result until it airs, just like everybody else!”   As for how her soap background helped her behind-the-scenes, Kimberly related that Pretty Little Liars is a “very intertwined, twisty-turny kind of a show.”

Watch an official promo from Freeform from Kimberly’s installment of Pretty Little Liars after the jump! Then let us know, will you be checking out the the episode? Will you show your support for Kimberly on Tuesday night? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Don’t care about this show but I’m glad to see her success in the next chapter of her career. I hope she thrives in her chosen profession.

Now if we could recast Robin to get that character back….

Yeah. There is gonna be no Robin recast. Kimberly has been more than accommodating for these character and soap destroyers…. They can bend over for her too.

Kelly Thiebaud Opens Up on Her Exit from General Hospital, Taping Britt’s Tragic Death Scenes, and Parting Thoughts on Co-Stars

Just a few weeks ago on the January 4th episode of General Hospital, viewers were left devastated when Dr. Britt Westbourne succumbed to a fatal poisoning after a confrontation with ‘The Hook’.

While it was revealed that Daytime Emmy winner, Kelly Thiebaud, was exiting the ABC soap opera at the end of 2022, many thought the story would see Britt leaving Port Charles to deal with her declining health due to Huntington’s Disease in private, in order to keep the door open for a possible return down the line.  However, that was not meant to be.  When a report from Deadline surfaced back in August of 2022, it indicated that Kelly was returning to her primetime role on ABC’s Station 19, which caused some confusion and rumors of just what would Thiebaud’s ultimate status be with the daytime drama series.

Now, in a very special exit interview for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Kelly chats with Michael Fairman and clarifies what led to her decision to leave her role as Dr. Britt Westbourne.

Talking with Fairman direct from London, Kelly, who won a Daytime Emmy in 2022 for the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, reveals how it came to pass that GH would kill-off the character of Britt by becoming another victim of ‘The Hook’, and more.

During the conversation, Thiebaud shares her thoughts on working with her former GH co-stars including: Steve Burton (ex-Jason), Parry Shen (Brad), Kirsten Storms (Maxie), Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Cassandra James (Terry), Roger Howarth (Austin) and Josh Kelly (Cody), as well as some of her favorite memories throughout her run on the series which began in 2012.

Kelly took the character from being the manipulative ‘Britch’ as an interloper in the romance of Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Sabrina (Teresa Castillo), all the way to becoming a well-loved character to root for.

While, GH viewers witnessed Britt’s shocking death scenes, Kelly weighs-in on taping those moments, as well as Britt’s emotional goodbye birthday party, and having the opportunity to portray a character who was trying to navigate her life, while suffering from the effects of Huntington’s Disease.

In addition, Thiebaud gives a very special ‘thank you’ and shout out to the fans for their enduring support as she looks forward to new roles and new adventures ahead.

Denise Crosby Makes a Return to General Hospital

After a major fallout with her parents, Carolyn (Denise Crosby) and Jeff Webber (William R. Moses), Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) was devastated, in particular because they concocted a plan to make her forget all about the tragic situation earlier in her life. That being, when Finn’s (Michael Easton) late wife, Reiko, fell down a flight of steps and eventually died after she struggled with Liz.

Apparently, the story is not over, when Denise Crosby reprises her role of Carolyn beginning the week of January 23rd on General Hospital.

Talking about her return in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Crosby previewed, “She (Carolyn) wants to make a connection with her daughter and try to make amends for something that is almost impossible to make amends for. She knows it could go really wrong, but she can’t live with herself if she doesn’t take the shot.”
