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.

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.

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

Courtney Hope Gets Marriage Advice From Her Y&R Co-Stars Ahead of Her Wedding to GH’s Chad Duell

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.

Please share your well-wishes to Courtney and Chad as they embark on their life together via the comment section below, and let us know what you think of the marital advice given to Hope from the citizens of Genoa City.
