Please tell me that Maura West isn’t being written out — Ava’s current predicaments do not look good. I am a huge Maura fan and I’ll admit to being paranoid about her leaving the show.

God no!! Maura West is a must now! No way she will leave. I hope Michelle stays too. GH has never had as many outstanding lead actresses before.

Say it again, Ghlover!!!!!
It would be foolhardy for GH to rid itself of Maura at this time. This story is just getting started. And, we ‘ain’t’ seen ‘nothin’ yet. Maura/Michelle/Kiki/Silas go together like bread and butter. There is too much drama to see with this foursome….can’t wait !!

Ava is a great addition – I really think she’s a keeper… although it feels as though the clock is ticking with her killing Connie and all. I can’t imagine that Olivia wouldn’t pick up a gun and kill her immediately.

That’s a good point, Andrew. I was so focused on Sonny’s revenge that I forgot about Olivia! Who knows what she’d do if she found out! Either way, I’d be shocked if they wrote Maura off the show; she’s a fan favorite at this point…though that didn’t stop them from killing off Quartermaine’s one by one…

Still, I’m betting “Ava” will be around for a while…

I hope she’s around for awhile… I think Ava has benefited from not being on every single day (the upside of the show managing a tight budget) and I enjoy Ava’s life on the cusp of barely staying afloat.

Yes, Andrew. I also mentioned that on another post. Ava needs to worry about Sonny, Olivia, and Dante. So, the woman is cornered. Lol

I just hope Genie Francis returns soon. At least Maxie has her parents there for her when she is brought back. It would be awesome to see Laura take that psycho creep Stavros out once and for all.

Would definitely like Laura to be around when FauxLuke is around next.

I know it is the rage to tweet. I see no need for it…too dangerous.

Why do you think it’s dangerous, CeeCee?

I tend to say more than I want to say…I don’t trust myself…lol. same reason I am not on Facebook. …same reason I don’t order anything on line….same reason I do not do banking on line….it’s some kind of fobia.Lol. Plus, I am very superstitious and I believe in Karma. …see what I mean, rebecca? I’ve said too much..lol…

What time will they be tweeting? Since the time change back to 3 in east coast, ABC owned, major markets, it’s not really live for those living in the smaller, non ABC owned affiliate markets. I really hope that this difference gets fixed soon and that GH will air at the same time in the same time zone.

Remember when we could all watch and tweet together on the east coast? So, I ask once again, what time is this live tweeting going to occur.

Happy 57th Anniversary Today to General Hospital

ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital turns 57 today, and remains the current longest-running soap opera on the air.  GH debuted back on April 1, 1963.

The show was created by the husband-and-wife team of Frank and Doris Hursley.  Originally, the soap was not given a name of a particular town in which the drama of the hospital was set in.  However, that all changed in the 1970’s when GH was set in Port Charles.

GH expanded from a 30-minute show to a 45-minute show on July 26, 1976 and eventually went to a full-hour where it has remained back on January 16, 1978.

Throughout its decades on the air, GH was the impetus for two spin-offs; Port Charles, (which aired from 1997-2003) and primetime’s GH: Night Shift (2007-2008),

The show went through many ups and downs over its history, but things changed dramatically for the better, when by the end of the 1970’s and facing cancellation, ABC brought in executive producer, Gloria Monty to steer the ship.  Monty created supercouple Luke and Laura played by Tony Geary and Genie Francis, and opened the show up with exciting location shoots, and from then on GH has remained a firm mainstay in the daytime line-up.

Today, Frank Valentini is the series executive producer, and the soap is co-written by the head writing team of Dan O’Connor and Chris Van Etten.

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital. Felix says give it two weeks and she will do something to mess things up.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

The Britch is Back! Kelly Thiebaud Makes a Return to General Hospital

Scene after scene, Kelly Thiebaud has lit up the screen and put the “feisty” back onto the ABC soap opera.  As an actress, Kelly can go from the heavy drama, to the comedic, to the sexy, all with ease.

In the March 30th issue of Soap Opera Digest, Thiebaud said of her return:  “Frank Valentini reached out to me the beginning of the year and mentioned that the writers wanted to bring me back for a bit.  I said,’Of course, I will,  I would love nothing more than that!”‘ I just really connect with Britt and have a blast playing her.”

So let us know, have you been enjoying the return of Kelly as Dr. Britt Westbourne, thus far? What do you think Britt is up to? Comment below.
