As previously announced in a clever move, cast members from ABC Family’s Baby Daddy and ABC’s General Hospital will crossover on both shows this February.  However, today more details were revealed as to what happens in story in the Baby Daddy episode featuring Port Charles favorite, Kelly Monaco (Sam)!

It all starts on Wednesday, February 4th ay8:30ET/PT on ABC Family.  In the episode entitled,“Over My Dead Bonnie,” on Baby Daddy, Kelly Monaco plays an exaggerated version of herself.  Danny (Derek Theler) is offered a cameo role on General Hospital and he’s really nervous and asks Riley to help him rehearse. Riley is a huge fan and can’t believe Danny is going to be in a scene with Kelly Monaco (Kelly Monaco), who plays her favorite character, Sam.  Although Kelly is initially annoyed by the stunt casting, she soon finds Danny charming and decides he needs to be her new love interest. Meanwhile, Tucker and Ben are tired of living with Bonnie (Melissa Peterman) and are determined to get her out of their apartment and back into hers. The boys figure out the best way to break the lease is to have Bonnie “die,” so they stage a funeral on the General Hospital set. Michael Lembeck (“One Day at a Time”) also guest stars. 

Then on Friday, February 13th, Baby Daddy’s Derek Theler (Danny Wheeler) and Melissa Peterman (Bonnie Wheeler) will guest star on GH  for a special Valentine’s Day episode.  Melissa Peterman plays an old friend of Olivia’s from Bensonhurst, and  Derek Theler plays a colleague of Dr. Patrick Drake. In this episode, it is Valentine’s Day in Port Charles. Olivia receives a surprise visitor from her Bensonhurst days. Melissa Santoro-Picard (Melissa Peterman) and the two old friends quickly catch up on life and loves. Later in the day, Melissa runs into another familiar face in Port Charles.   Meanwhile, Dr. Patrick Drake is called to consult on a case at the last minute, delaying his date with Sam. Coincidentally, Patrick’s colleague Derek (Derek Theler) was also stood up by his date. Derek and Sam agree to keep each other company until their significant others arrive. As the night progresses, the two discover the true meaning of Valentine’s Day.

So, what do you think of the set-up for Kelly Monaco’s appearance on Baby Daddy?  And, Derek Theler and Melissa Peterman on GH? Comment below!

OK-
It will be a fun time !!!
Breaking through the fence is always a good time..
I am looking forward the entertaining crossover !
I am always up for something different to explore and have a good time with it!
(( that is what it is all about- a good time watching!!

I agree it will be nice to see them pop in Port Charles. I really like Melissa Peterman; she’ll likely bring some fun to Valentine’s Day.

Sounds completely pointless and waste of time for a Valentine’s day episode on GH. I’d rather see another hot bedroom scene with Olivia and Julian! A romantic valentine’s dinner with Dante & Lula. Monica on a new date with Judge Walters, again. Lucy at the metrocourt hopping between Duke, Scotty and Sloane! ha-haha. Also would love to see a romantic double date with Liz & Rick and TJ & Molly. And, Lucas & Brad! GH, give us our couples for Valentine’s day!

Sounds good to me, Jeremy.

I mean, what YOU wrote, Jeremy…..it’s all good and I agree.

I have looking forward to both of these episodes. “true meaning of Valentine’s day” has me intrigued as to what we are going to see in this episode. I am amxious to see Kelly in this comedy show, it should be a lot of fun to watch

I think GH will go out of the traditional Valentine’s Day box..
Valentine’s day is not just for couples, it is about love ..
There is a huge variety of love you acknowledgment Valentine cards..
I think this Valentines Days will hold a whole bunch of love in many ways..
I am looking forward to it !!

A traditional- here are your flowers dear now lets have sex is just not story worthy..
It is way too common…. so yeah i’m going to like this twist ..

Sounds like fun! Looking forward to these episodes as well.

I THINK THAT KELLY CAN BE ON ANY SHOW AND BE LIKE TOO. SHE’S ONE OF MY FAVORITE ON GH, SHE’S A BEAUTY, GOOD ACTRESS, AND KNOWS HOW TO LIVE UP TO THE GUYS ON THE SHOW. CAN’T WAIT TO SEE HER IN IT. JUST REMIND US AGAIN. AS ALWAYS, MARY DITANNA PENDRAK.

I agree Mary! I loved her in DWTS and continue to enjoy her on GH!

Me three!

Welllll…to clarify…lol…probably won’t watch Baby Daddy…never been heard of it. But I like Kelly very much and agree…she was great on DWTS…both times!

This sounds all too cute, too gimmicky and something I shall avoid.
Kelly Monaco is a dull actress to me–not all the cleavage and the jeggings in the world will make her interesting.

Maurice Benard Reveals All My Children’s Lee Meriweather and Daughter’s Alzheimer’s Diagnosis

At the beginning of the latest episode of General Hospital star, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos) State of Mind series, he delivered some heartbreaking news with a purpose.

Kyle Oldham, the daughter of former All My Children star, Lee Meriwether (ex-Ruth Martin), who previously made a guest appearance on Benard’s show, returned for a new interview which will be coming soon.

During their conversation, Oldham shared that her beloved mother has Alzheimer’s. Sadly, according to Benard, Kyle also revealed she has been diagnosed with the disease as well.

Maurice expressed, “We talked about her mother and having Alzheimer’s and it was an amazing interview. And then Kyle said, ‘I gotta tell you something. I have Alzheimer’s.’”

Apparently, Kyle has agreed to come on State of Mind, periodically as the effects of Alzheimer’s take a hold of her to help educate others. “We decided that she was gonna come in … she was gonna call me and tell me as she progresses,” Benard shared. “She was going to come in again so the audience could see with their eyes what Alzheimer’s does to someone.”

Benard’s guest for this current episode of State of Mind was Vernee Watson (Stella, GH), who along with Maurice, was part of the Alzheimer’s storyline on the ABC daytime drama series that saw Mike Corbin (Max Gail) eventually pass away.

As for Lee Meriwether, not only is she known for her role on AMC, but also for her roles as Catwoman in Batman: The Movie, and The Courtship of Eddie’s Father, and for the television series, Barnaby Jones, the New Andy Griffith Show and The Munsters to name only a few.

In soap operas, Meriwether was cast in The Young Marrieds years prior to her time on All My Children where she replaced Mary Fickett in the matriarchal role in the Martin family. She played the role from 1996-99, 2002-03, and 2007-11.

Meriwether’s daughter, Kyle Oldham, has been an actress and spokesperson herself through the years. She appeared on The Price is Right for over 14 years until she couldn’t anymore after going through multiple surgeries in her adult life.

You can check out the full episode of State of Mind with Maurice an Vernee below.

Eva LaRue Makes Her ‘General Hospital’ Debut: What Were Your First Impressions of Natalia Rogers-Ramirez?

On the Monday, February 26th episode of General Hospital, former All My Children favorite, Eva LaRue (ex-Maria Santos), made her first appearance in her new recurring role of Blaze’s (Jacqueline Grace Lopez) mother, Natalia Rogers-Ramirez.

In key scenes, as Kristina (Kate Mansi) and Blaze are happy after spending the night together, Kristina is in for a shock when she is still in bed and the door opens and Blaze’s mother, Natalia strolls in seemingly oblivious to walked she just walked in.

Natalia announces, “Alison, Mommy’s here!” Then, Natalia looks over and sees Kristina in bed and both women are a bit startled. Kristina introduces herself to “Mrs. Rogers-Ramirez.” However, Natalia corrects her and says it’s “Miss.”

Next, Blaze walks into the room still in her robe. She is very shocked that her mother arrived in Port Charles much earlier than expected. Natalia wants an explanation of just what she walked in on. It is then, Kristina concocts a story and explains they had a girls’ night, and it got late so Alison let her crash.

Natalia seems to buy into Kristina’s lies. Blaze starts to argue with her mother over the non-vegan sandals her mother brought her from Puerto Rico and her grandmother’s pudding, which she has told her in the past she dislikes. Kristina pipes in that the reason Alison doesn’t like it, is because of the texture and the same goes for avocado and flan. Natalia says she thinks she knows her own daughter.

Then, Blaze gets more upset and asks Kristina to stay and be by her side. Blaze announces that she and Kristina are more than just friends. We already know that Natalia is from a very conservative background, so we anticipate on tomorrow’s episode of GH, she won’t approve finding out her daughter is gay. Stay-tuned.

So, were you happy to see Eva LaRue back on daytime and now on General Hospital? What were you first impressions of her new character Natalia Rogers-Ramirez? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first, check out the scenes from her arrival below,

General Hospital’s William Lipton to Star in Music Drama Series ‘The Runarounds’ From ‘Outer Banks’ Creators

This sounds like a perfect starring vehicle for the multi-talented William Lipton (Cameron Webber), who recently made a brief return to General Hospital for his best friend, Spencer Cassadine’s (the exited Nicholas Chavez) gravesite memorial service.

Now comes word that Lipton is set to star in a new series in the works entitled The Runarounds. If that name sounds familiar, it’s because The Runarounds is the name of the band seen in season three of Netflix’s popular series, Outer Banks. 

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Amazon has given the green light to an eight-episode, straight-to-series order for The Runarounds which premise features the story of a post-high school band as they try to make it big.

The fictional drama is inspired by the real life band of the same name and will star its group’s members: William Lipton, Axel Ellis, Jeremy Yun, Zendé Murdock and Jesse Golliher.

The Runarounds will be set and film in Wilmington, North Carolina, where Outer Banks was also shot. Skydance Television is the studio behind the series. Outer Banks creators Josh Pate, Joshua Pate, and Shannon Burke will bring this project to life.

Lipton took to his Instagram on Monday, once the news of the series was revealed, expressing, “Where are we going, fellas? To the top, Johnny!” Immediately GH co-stars past and present shared their congratulations to William including: Sydney Mikayla (ex-Trina Robinson) and Enzo De Angelis, who plays Lipton’s brother, Aiden on GH.

 

In a statement, Vernon Sanders, head of television at Amazon MGM Studios, expressed: “When we first met with Jonas and Skydance about The Runarounds, it was immediately clear that they brought us a special show featuring an incredibly talented cast and real-life band. We are very much looking forward to sharing the exhilarating journey of The Runarounds with our global Prime Video customers.”

The Runarounds were actually formed as a band back in 2021, when Jonas Pate issued a casting call looking for a group to appear on Outer Banks. The group first performed together when they played for Pate ahead of appearing in season three after being selected from a more than 5,000 musicians who responded to the call.

No word yet on when The Runarounds will be released.

So, excited for this opportunity for William Lipton to star in this music drama? Hope he returns to GH down the line? Comment below.
