On the upcoming Monday edition of CBS Daytime’s afternoon series, The Talk, look for lGeneral Hospital favorite, Vanessa Marcil (Brenda Barrett) to mix things up with the ladies on the panel as they welcome guests that include: Actor Mark Feuerstein (CBS’ 9JKL); and for their “Top Talker” segment, television host Natalie Morales.

Marcil who will co-host the hour, tweeted her excitement stating: “Uh oh!!!!! I love me some @CBSDaytime See you Monday!!!!”

Next, Vanessa’s pal, and longtime screen partner, Maurice Benard (Sonny, GH) added, “Can’t wait!”  Later, Vanessa added a humorous Instagram pic of her man, MC with Marilyn Monroe, stating: “I will be talking about MC cheating on me w this blonde on @cbsthetalk starting Monday”

In addition, on Saturday, Vanessa tweeted to Michael Fairman that she will also be co-hosting on Tuesday’s episode of The Talk as well.

Marcil is no stranger to co-hosting either, having been a very special guest co-host on Soap Nation Live’s Daytime Emmy Nomination Special back in 2015.  You can listen to the broadcast here.

Will you be checking out Vanessa on Mondays broadcast of The Talk? Would she make a great permanent co-host? Comment below!

Melissa, I was a die-hard fan of Sonny and Brenda in the 90’s! I would tape the show everyday (on VHS) and then rewind their scenes over and over again. I agree, her return (in 2010) was written very poorly. Unfortunately, I am not a “Carson” fan.

Her “Battle of the Breadrolls” with Carly was pretty lame, not to mention, petty and immature!

I still think Vanessa is one of the most beautiful women that has ever been on daytime. I would love to see her come back. I do not watch “GH” frequently, but think she would be a cast addition to “B&B” or “DOOL.”

I always comfort myself with the thought that Brenda and Jax are on some tropical island, loving each other, free from the stains of Carly and Sonny!

Nice sentiments, Jovin! Now, if only the viewers were “free from the stains of Carly and Sonny!”

JK, I echo your sentiments exactly! I had initially left a short negative comment that was not published. And I actually agree with those who chose not to publish it because I was completely snarky. But my disgust lies mainly with the hosts of “The Talk” for the reason you mention… This is an unwatchable show for me as well.

Aw, this is where Vanessa’s career jumps the shark! “The Talk” should be called “The Talking Over One Another!” It is so annoying and every time Underwood appears on my TV I want to shoot out my screen!

My comment is not meant to offend, but, Underwood looks and acts like a drag queen. I can’t stand the show or any of the co-hosts myself.

DMR, that’s how I feel about Wendy Williams

Rhonda, YES, and both Wendy and The Talk (and The View) co-hosts constantly interrupt their guests while interviewing them.

I could never connect with her character Brenda, she seemed so immature and annoying most of the time. I do like Vanessa tho, good luck with the hosting gig.

Saw her on The Talk today. Had to change the channel–too many cringe-worthy comments made by Vanessa Marcil. She came across as insensitive, uninformed, and a little inappropriate at times.

I feel like something has happened to her-she has seemed a bit “off” since her return to General Hospital in 2010. Her social media posts/comments are odd and it’s a bit of a turn-off. I felt that way when she returned to General Hospital in 2010, and I was a die-hard fan of Sonny and Brenda in the 90’s. Her acting was way off key.

I agree. I saw a few snippets of The Talk and Vanessa did seem a bit off. I was never quite sure what point she was trying to make.
And like you, DMR, I was an enthusiastic fan of Brenda’s back when she was on GH the first time.
Maybe being married to Corey Feldman during his Michael Jackson moonwalking days traumatized her.

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And … make sure to wish Nancy a ‘happy 25th’ via the comment section below.

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.
