oh yes! I saw him in concert in 2006. It was fantastic. He got up and walked thru the crowd using the armrests to walk on and we helped to support him… some even caught him (on the butt!) when he started to lose balance. What fun, huh? te he he

Girls still threw panties on the stage for him. Funny! and he did the strum the guitar with a bouquet of roses, which shreds them and they go everywhere. But yeah, that was a great concert, even better cuz it was a round rotating stage and smaller venue.

I will absolutely be tuning in for this major milestone not only in GH’s history, but in the history of this wonderful genre. I am sooooo proud of all those that have worked sooooo hard at GH both in front of and behind the cameras to even make it to this landmark event, especially since just one year ago, we did not even know if GH had a future to look forward to. I cannot wait to see how everything plays out, and I am sure we will not be disappointed. I look forward to everything. Happy 50th GH, and may you enjoy many, many more years to come!!!

Actually Days killed off half its cast several years ago and then later brought back all of them which most of us thought wouldnt happen…so i have to say they did it first, even though it seemed to have been their plan all along. Im excited GH is doing it!!!

I am hoping that the long-suffering A.J. FINALLY finds happiness with Elizabeth, and wonder what they will do at the NB. I’m crossing my fingers for a real L&L reconciliation, and Jax & Brenda return to town married (as it should have been from the get-go). As to Sabrina, I can’t accept her with Patrick knowing Robin is still alive- she’s better off with Milo. Bobbie’s been throwing hints about her son Lucas looking for Mr. Right- could it be Felix DuBois? And will someone PLEASE give Monica a man?? It would be great if Alan were actually alive and held prisoner by Dr. Obrecht at that clinic where Robin is. As to who Britt’s dad could be: I say the long-missing Victor Cassadine, played by Thaao Penghlis back in 1981! He was last heard of as being in prison.

I’ve been watching GH (and all the ABC soaps, RIP) since I had a babysitter who watched them all. She had to take me to the dentist one day and the Muzak in the waiting room was the song playing when Luke raped Laura at the disco. of course, I said his out loud which embarrassed my poor babysitter to have people thinking she was letting a child watch such things!

I want the NB to be the start of Nicholas and Sabrina !

Loved today’s episode- especially the prolonged scene between Laura Wright and Jackie Zeman. Love, love, love Zeman- and it was great to see these two pros together. If I’m not mistaken, it is probably the first time Zeman and Wright have had a long scene together. I really hope they keep Zeman after the anniversary episodes- she’s still fantastic! Is there a Frank/Ron fan club somewhere? They have not only saved this soap, but made it “fun to watch” again.

Real Andrews Returns As Marcus Taggert On General Hospital

Well, well, well! Looks who’s back in Port Charles!  A major surprise occurred during Thursday’s “Next-On-General Hospital” teasers when viewers saw Sonny’s former nemesis Marcus Taggert, and Sonny himself, in a clip from a scene.

Turns out that today on Friday, January 17th look for the return of Real Andrews to his role as Taggert!  Andrews took to his Twitter and Instagram account to confirm the casting news.

Maurice Benard tweeted: He’s Back!!! Bigger and better than ever. On General Hospital. You don’t want to miss it.”

While, Andrews tweeted: “It is going to be a great ride.”

Real played the role of Marcus from 1996-1997 and then again from 1998-2003.   He was last seen on the soaps on Days of our Lives back in 2016 and 2017.

In real life, Benard and Andrews are good friends.

Now the question is, could Taggert’s re-emergence tie in to the new case that Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is working on, and somehow the return of Nikolas Cassadine to the canvas?  Years ago, Taggert’s sister, Gia was involved with the dark prince, leaving fans speculating that perhaps Nik and Gia had a daughter, who could turn out to be Trina played by Sydney Mikayla.  Hmmm.

So, give a big “welcome back” to Real as Taggert hits the screen today on GH via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nelle Is A Free Woman … And Shiloh’s Widow

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it the pick-up of the oh-so-soapy and delicious moment when Shiloh’s widow reveals herself at the memorial in his honor.  Taking off her HUGE black veil/hat, all the attendees are stunned to see it none other than Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier).  And it was the perfect set-up for naughty Nelle when she had so many of her enemies all in one place as her captive audience. Clearly, she wants revenge on all of them.

At the ceremony, Nelle explains that she and Shiloh while in prison had a small ceremony and “Dawn of Day” devotee Daisy was their witness, which Daisy confirms.  Nelle goes on to say that she shares Shiloh’s wishes to be part of little Wiley’s life, and since he is no longer among us, she will makes sure she is a part of it!

Of course, throughout her statements, Michael (Chad Duell) is looking less than amused and cuts to the chase and asks her what she really wants.  And with something that all viewers of the ABC daytime drama series, let out a collective, “uh-oh”, Nelle replied “What belongs to me.”   As we know, Wiley is Michael and Nelle’s biological son, and with Lucas (Ryan Carnes) in the hospital, it would seem the perfect time for her to make her move to get closer to the child she gave to Brad (Parry Shen).

Next, Chase (Josh Swickard) arrives on the scene and says to all that what Nelle is saying is true. She is not only Shiloh’s widow, but she is no longer behind bars! Nelle explains how after being “stabbed” by Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom) and the ensuing circumstances she was able to be granted a get-out-of-jail card!

To take the set-up of this story to even another level, Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) admits to Chase that she took the job as Wiley’s nanny!  Chase does not think it’s a good idea for her to care for Wiley’ and then eventually have to leave him with Brad and Lucas, once Lucas is recovered.  Willow assures Chase she can handle it.  As for Nelle, she has it out for Willow now, and be rest assured, she is not just going to stand by and let Willow move in on her bio-son.

Jason (Steve Burton), who was present at the memorial, heads to Carly (Laura Wright) to tell the bad news; that her enemy Nelle is out of jail, and running around free and is Shiloh’s widow.  Carly as expected is very distraught and unhappy to hear the news.

turns out, Nelle is not done with her day yet! Next, while the Quartermaines conduct an ELQ shareholders meeting in their living room; Ned (Wally Kurth) says the first order of business is the late Oscar Nero’s ELQ shares.  As the Q’s begin discussions which dissolve into bickering, in walks Nelle! Yup, since Oscar left his shares to Shiloh and she is his widow, well, she is now going to have her say … probably in everything!  Fade to black.
