Where else but on General Hospital can a game show host turn out to be an ex-Madam’ turned Cosmetic mogul?  Of course, we took some license with that, but this Friday marks the return of Who Wants To Be A Millonaire’s, Meredith Viera to GH ten years after her last visit.

Viera’s guest stint is part of planned crossover that GH fans will have to wait till this coming April – when Jason Thompson, Finola Hughes, Ian Buchanan and head writer, Ron Carlivati appear on an episode of the hit syndicated game show just in time for GH’s upcoming 50th Anniversary!

In the meantime, Viera returns to Port Charles this week as ex-call girl Madam Bree Flanders who seems to have moved up in the world aligning herself with the returning Lucy Coe (Lynn Herring)!  In an exclusive interview with TV Guide, Viera fills on in on her return and more!   Here are a few fun excerpts below!

Viera on what’s become of her GH alter-ego Bree: “Well, she’s no longer providing comfort to men! Lynn Herring returns to the show as Lucy Coe and it turns out Bree is her senior VP of marketing at CoeCoe Cosmetics. Sabrina and Felix are desperately trying to get a meeting with Lucy but first they have to go through me. [Laughs] But, really, not much has changed for Bree. Prostitution. Makeup. Hey, it’s all sales.”

Viera on the upcoming reveal that Bree used to work for Renee Divine (Patricia Elliot) when she was a Madam in Vegas utilizing some crossover tidbit from OLTL:  Really? Yeah, before Bree became a madam in her own right she used to work for a madam named Renee at a whorehouse in Reno, Nevada, but nobody told me Renee was a character the audience would know! That’s so cool! They probably didn’t want to load me down with too much information. They were probably thinking, “Let’s hope the poor thing can get through this!” These soaps move so fast, you know. So much faster than 10 years ago!”

Viera on the GH peeps who fans will see in the crossover – as they play “Millionaire” come April!:  “Yes, we have Finola Hughes (Anna), Jason Thompson (Patrick), Ian Buchanan (Duke) and (head writer) Ron Carlivati coming on Millionaire. It’ll air around GH‘s 50th anniversary in April. Such terrific people! I’ve had some wonderful opportunities thanks to these crazy jobs of mine, particularly Millionaire and The View and Today. I played a party planner on All My Children and someone threw a pot at me. I even got to dance with the Rockettes on opening night of their Christmas show at Radio City, which I took very seriously. That’s sacred stuff and they normally don’t allow it. Of course, I stood out like a sore thumb because they’re all ridiculously tall compared to me.”

So what do you think of the idea of Meredith’s Bree working with Herring’s Lucy Coe?  And, what do you think of the powerhouse GH foursome that was chosen to play “Millionaire”?  Good team?  Let us know!

Katelyn MacMullen Celebrates 1 Year Anniversary On GH; Now, What Will Happen When Willow Finds Out The Truth About Wiley?

Since Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) first appeared on the General Hospital canvas as the school teacher who needed to let Charlotte’s (Scarlett Fernandez) parents (Valentin, Nina and Lulu) know of her bullying tactic sat school, the character has become quite intertwined to others in Port Charles.

We eventually learned that Willow shared a dark past with the late Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin), and even had his child, but never told him about it.  Later, Willow seem to get the attention of two young gentlemen; Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and Harrison Chase (Josh Swickard).

As of now, Chase and Willow look to be quite the happy couple.  But, what will happen when Willow learns the devastating truth- that the little boy she gave up -that is being raised by Brad (Parry Shen) and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) isn’t really hers.  In fact, her son died when Brad took Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) baby to replace the baby that died.

In a post on her Instagram, Katelyn MacMullen shared that it’s hard to believe a year has past since her debut on the ABC soap opera expressing gratitude: “It’s been a year since I’ve joined this incredible cast! I love this show so much, and every single person involved. I’m so grateful 🖤 It’s been a pretty crazy ride for Willow so far, and I’ve enjoyed every second of it 🌚 Thank you @generalhospitalabc !! 🙏 #GH #oneyearanniversary”

Chloe Lanier’s New Short Film ‘The Reveal’ Releases First Trailer

As previously reported, Chloe Lanier, the actress who plays naughty Nelle Benson on ABC’s General Hospital, has been busy at work on a special project. And while Nelle is upset having just been denied parole on the ABC soap opera, (something tells us nothing will stop her from getting out of the slammer), Lanier on the other hand has been very excited about her new short film, The Reveal.

The Reveal in which Lanier stars, co-wrote, and co-directed along with her boyfriend, Kevan McClellan also has some very familiar faces along for the ride from Port Charles and Genoa City. That’s because Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Josh Swickard (Chase, GH) are also part of the film.

The action takes place at a gender reveal party for a baby, and according to the loglines of the short: “Zoe and James are a young couple attending their new-age friends gender reveal party. As they attempt to find their place amongst the eclectic group of party guests and friends, unsung wishes and hidden resentments begin to surface within their relationship.”

Watch the trailer from Lanier below.

Then, let us know if you are intrigued to see the short film when its out via the comment section below.

WATCH: Jonathan Jackson + Enation’s New Music Video “The Days Are Evil”

Five-time Daytime Emmy winner from General Hospital, and former Nashville star, Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky, Ex-Avery) has released a new music video for the new single “The Days Are Evil” along with his band Enation.

The music video features shots of Jackson in a very dark incarnation, and the track will also appear on Jackson + Enation’s upcoming album due out later this fall, Ultraviolet Empire.

Jonathan says of the new album: “Our new album, Ultraviolet Empire, is a throwback record. It’s a record we played together live in the studio. Most of the songs are one take -just letting the band play.  It was amazing playing with our co-producer Colin Linden and capturing something so raw and visceral.”

This will be the band’s follow-up to their 2017 album  Anthems for the Apocalypse and their successful 2018 tour in Europe opening for Echo & The Bunnymen,

Check out the music video featuring Jonathan released this week below.

Then, let us know, should Lucky return to Port Charles for the Nurses’ Ball with his band and play a tune off the new album next spring? Will Jonathan come home to GH for a guest appearance? Will you be checking out the new music from him in the coming months? Comment below.
