On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman received a very special invitation from General Hospital and executive producer, Frank Valentini to be part of the on-camera red carpet festivities, but just how would he end up participating? And where would he be? And what would he actually have to do?  Those were the questions Michael wanted to know, when he showed up on this very special tape day!

And in this exclusive behind-the-scenes look of the red carpet event at the Nurses’ Ball, Fairman filed this video report, which includes his thoughts on trying to figure out what to do with a camera!  Oh yes …  he played a paparazzi, or thought he did!  And, On-Air On-Soaps had a prime position to all the red carpet walks, the dresses, and the drama of the gala event!

Check it out after the jump, in our very special GH 50 anniversary nod to fans of On-Air On-Soaps and the iconic soap!

Yes, I saw you! Just wanted to see more of you!! I know you were thrilled to be there. What a nice treat!!

This is hilarious,Michael. We couldn’t tell if your camera was working or not. You are a good sport to inflick this on yourself. Thought the red carpet was a great idea. You might want to go to a camera store so you’ll know where the flash is next time. Funny!..

I think you did a good job especially loved the interview, looking good!

Loved the red carpet! Really loved Jack Wagner’s song-he still can sing it! GH the way it was, wish all the oldies could stay. It’s been great. Love all the extras and their real life parts that are with the soap genre.

The nurses ball had its corny moments but in a fun way…disappointed not seeing Audrey there with Liz…almost forgot JW could sing…i still think Robin will show up but itll be Britt pulling a Duke/Faison, i think,thanks to her Dr. Evil mother…who is Dr. Os husband anyway…was her husband Colonel Klink? lol And as for you Micheal F. you shouldve told us sooner so id pay attention more to the camera people lol but ill watch again on soapnet! I always do when i miss something lol

Wait just a minute Micheal Fairmen! Your cameo wasnt the big suprise at that nurses ball was it? What a letdown! Just kidding there pal…i love to joke around! LMAO!!!

P.S. would love it Micheal if you make another cameo…as Dr.Os evil husband and papa of Dr. Britch! That would be hilarious! LMAO!!!

Got to watch it again Micheal…my sister taped it…you did a great job as a reporter and you looked right at home. You should do more cameos on all the soaps(maybe as a photographer at a soap couples wedding? Y&R shouldve had you be a photorapher or a reporter doing a cover story on Victors and Nikkis wedding) Not that silly cameo suggestion i was joking about as Dr.Os hubby and Britts father! but im serious about the other suggestions i just made.

Michael! You look fabulous darling on the carpet! Charming and adorable..put a smile on my face 😉

Welcome, Michael Fairman, once again, to The Red Carpet and to the 2013 Nurses’ Ball! You were totally in your element.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Ava Receives a Haunting Letter About Austin’s Murder

On Thursday’s November 30th episode of General Hospital, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) is on the case of who shot Austin (Roger Howarth) and pays a visit to Ava Jerome (Maura West) at Wyndemere.

Dante asks Ava when was the last time she saw Dr. Austin Gatlin-Holt. She asks why and what is going on with Austin? Dante tells her he’s dead, and assumes she must already know, especially given her non-reaction to the news.

Ava tells Dante she was last with Austin two days ago at her gallery. When he questions her if security footage can back that up, that would then give her an alibi. However, Ava explains she left out the back, and that the surveillance camera has not been working. Since the murder happened in Pautauk, Dante tells Ava they will want to question her.


She responds that a lot of people in town knew Austin from Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and on. However, Dante points out that Ava was the only one that was kidnapped by Mason (Nathanyael Grey). Ava says she will have her lawyer ready.

As Dante exits, Ava looks through her unopened mail. She finds a letter addressed to her and it says inside on note paper, “You’re welcome.” But that’s not all, inside the letter is a polaroid of Austin’s dead body.


Also in story, Molly (Kristen Vaganos) has a meltdown when she has to start the finding a surrogate process all over again, and is found crying on a park bench by her sister, Kristina (Kate Mansi). Will this be the conversation where Molly will take up Kristina on her initial offer to carry the child for her and TJ (Tahj Bellow)?


In another key moment, James thinks Cody (Josh Kelly) would make a great big brother, which then gets Felicia (Kristina Wagner) flashing back to when Cody told Mac that it turns out Mac is not his bio-dad. Felicia senses something is not right. Is she finally on to the fact that Cody lied to Mac? Stay tuned.


So, who do you think sent the letter to Ava about killing Austin? Is it Nikolas? Cyrus? Mason? Could it be Ava herself, who doesn’t remember she did the deed, or could it be someone else? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

If you caught the end of the Monday, November 27th Thanksgiving episode of General Hospital, the ABC daytime drama ended the show with a special dedication to Tyler Christopher (ex-Nikolas Cassadine), who passed away on October 31st at the age of 50.

With a very touching title card, and a photo of Tyler from his younger days as the dark prince of the Cassadine clan, it read, “In Loving Memory of Tyler Christopher.”

On Tuesday, November 28th, ABC Current Series executive, Nathan Varni, who oversees Grey’s Anatomy, The Conners, Station 19 and General Hospital for the network, shared on X some additional thoughts on Tyler’s contributions to the GH family.

Varni expressed: “This lovely tribute card was shown at the end of yesterday’s episode of GH In loving memory of Tyler Christopher. Thanks for bringing Nikolas Cassadine to life on our screens, you’ll always be in our hearts. RIP.”

Tyler played the role of GH’s Nikolas from 1996–1999, 2003–2011, and lastly from 2013–2016. He also took on the role of Connor Bishop from 2004–2005. The late actor took home the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series in 2016 for his work as Nikolas.

GH’s Scarlett Fernandez on Charlotte’s Mindset: “She Completely Believes That Anna is Out to Get Her”

Once returning to General Hospital, Scarlett Fernandez (Charlotte) has been involved in a juicy storyline, where an impressionable young Charlotte Cassadine has been persuaded almost brain-washed, if you will, via a letter from Victor Cassadine from the grave.

In it, he implores Charlotte to keep Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) away from her father, Valentin (James Patrick Stuart). So, taking that to heart, Charlotte burned Anna’s house down and much more.  When she gets shot by Anna after intruding into the super spy’s apartment, the stakes get even higher.

Valenin had figured out that Charlotte was stalking Anna and trying to do her harm, but did not inform Anna. That has caused a major rift in their relationship.  Meanwhile, Laura (Genie Francis) and Valentin confronted Charlotte after she returned home from the hospital.

In her latest interview with Soap Opera Digest, Fernandez shared on getting to play this kind of story: “It’s definitely an honor because when I was little, I was getting storylines, but this is just crazy! I kind of feel like I’m treated like an adult on the show now, almost, and it’s just been great. I’ve been given great stuff and the fact that Frank (Valentini, EP, GH) and all of his co-workers have trusted me has just been an amazing feeling.”

With everyone confronting Charlotte on her dirty deeds against Anna, and her denying it, Fernandez weighs-in on just where Charlotte is at this point in her mind: “I think that she definitely realizes that the people around her don’t believe her and don’t trust her and I think that really frustrates her because she completely believes that Anna is out to get her. So that (the adults in her life don’t believe her) is hard for her.”

Photo: ABC

There is also burgeoning chemistry between Jake (Hudson West) and Charlotte! So what does Fernandez think of that? Is she using him, or could be the beginning of young love? She expressed: “I think it’s definitely a little bit of both. I think that maybe she and Jake are partners-in-crime, but I also think that Jake has or will have a good influence on her. She just really needs someone to be there for her and for her to be able to confide in and I think that he has been that.”

So, have you been enjoying Scarlett’s performances as a troubled Charlotte? Would you like to see Jake and Charlotte have a ‘date’? Do you think Charlotte needs deprogramming to help her out of the grip that Victor has on her; as she believes Anna is the cause of all the trouble that will come her father’s way, if she doesn’t find a way to get rid of her? Weigh-in via the comment section below.
