Finally!  The Chew is doing a little crossover on their talk/foodie show invading the lives of four residents of Port Charles in a special series all next week entitled “Behind The Soap Screen”. 

General Hospital’s Finola Hughes, Julie Marie Berman, Ingo Rademacher and Erik Valdez are the subjects and are featured with special appearances by Sebastian Roche and Lindsey Morgan.  The segments begin next Monday, September 24th!

ABC put out this official press release for tune-in that gives some details of what to look for:  Gordon Elliott, executive producer of  The Chew, announced today that the talk & lifestyle show will launch a four-part series next week entitled “Behind the Soap Screen,” featuring an in-depth look into the lives of Julie Berman (Lulu Spencer), Finola Hughes (Anna Devane), Ingo Rademacher (Jasper ‘Jax’ Jacks) and Erik Valdez (Trey Mitchell). The stars will open their homes to The Chew for a glance into their private, off-screen lives, sharing recipes and hobbies. “We are thrilled to have this opportunity to showcase our neighbors from Port Charles,” said Elliott. “Daytime television is all about showcasing personalities, building relationships and storytelling, and many of the General Hospital actors are closet gourmets. We are looking forward to having them on the show.”

An outing to Julie Berman’s home includes a peek at her kitchen, where she and husband, Michael Grady, prepare one of their favorite dishes, a grilled chicken and basil pizza.  Finola Hughes proudly displays her green thumb as she tends her impressive vegetable garden in Malibu. The actress, who grows apples, plums, peaches and avocados, prepares a mouth-watering feta, cherry tomato, kalamata olive creation with flatbread, all with ingredients from her garden.

Ingo Rademacher unveils his breathtaking Hawaiian home, where he resides with his wife and two children. Rademacher’s trip includes his backyard, where he grows avocados and raises livestock. He shares his recipe for the perfect avocado and scallion omelet, and takes fellow General Hospital co-star Sebastian Roche (“Jerry Jacks”) for a paddleboard lesson.

Texas born and raised Erik Valdez cooks a dish he learned from his grandmother. He puts his own spin on her classic ground turkey taco recipe with guacamole, Pico de Gallo, rice and beans, and cooks for his General Hospital co-star, Lindsey Morgan (“Kristina Davis”).

So clearly with their ratings in need of a spike, who does The Chew turn to now? Of course, GH!  However, that being said, are you going to give the show a look-see and see what some of your GH faves have got cookin’ next week?  Let us know! And remember The Chew now airs one hour before General Hospital in the new re-jiggered line-up!

How can you watch that greasy haired man who skimmed 5.25 million dollars in tips from his waiters and he’s a millionaire.He also refuse to stop a man from being sexually harass in his resturant.He didn’t want to be grooped by another man.Hell ABC needs to call Bernie Madoff up and have cooking with the theives.Google Mario skims waiters tips,Its not old news how he operates.In respect for hard worker waiters who need them tips he needs to go.He is a theif.He also needs a damn bath and was that greasy hair.bb

The Chew makes me sick. I would never watch one second of the stupid cooking show. I have to stomach the commercials during GH and all I see are idiots talking with their mouths full. I used to watch “What Not to Wear” and I haven’t watched it since I saw Clinton Kelly on the Chew. Out of respect for unemployed actors and staff I refuse the Chew. I don’t care who comes on whether it be Laura Wright, Michael Easton, Susan Lucci… I would rather die.

mary

Clinton Kelly called us soap fans Morons and Turds.When people posted on hs facebook nothing personnal but will not watch anything that replace soaps.That was his reply.One person said her reply was not bad to him and just wanted him to know it was the soaps she would back and he called her a coward for not having her picture on her post and some bad stuff.He is very mean if you don’t kiss his @ss.He had no reason to be that rude.

Won’t be watching the show but will hope to see the segments on youtube or something.

I have no interest in a show like the Chew even with GH actors o it. With the exception of GH, I’ve sworn off ABC anyway.

Tali Smith

NO Chew period, not even with GH actors on it, Never!

Same here. Only watch GH on ABC/d, boycotting the rest.

they want to steal the soaps viewers after they tried to kill the soaps, not for me.

Nope. I’m sure someone will put the clips on YouTube and I may watch it there. But ABC won’t get my ratings.

I have always watched The Chew from day one and am excited to see Julie Berman at home.In fact i will love to see all of these actors.

I will never watch the ratty show ABC destroyed AMC for. I admit I’m also very gratified to find that most people in this thread and others about this horrid show feel the same way.

Christine
Christine

I agree with Pav. If I want a QUALITY cooking show, then I turn to Food Network or any of the cable shows. Heck I might watch a YouTube video or PBS on cooking before I watch a network reality show that took the place of a soap opera.

Crystal

No where in their post do they saw that they use to watch AMC, Linda.
Though even if they did, it’s quite possible to enjoy The Chew and still be a loyal AMC fan.

Rose

Look at my reply above Pink.How can you back a millionaire who took from his hard workin g waiters.People should be ashame.cccc

mary

How can a soap fan back a show that took the place of our soaps.Especially one that is a downright theif.Google Mario skims 5.25 millions off his waiters.Is that what Tv has come to.ABC give Bernie Madoff a call.He needs a job.

chris
chris

That’s is how much he paid back

mary

Chris heard it was 5 times more then he paid back.More like 29 million in tips but noone can get an accurate account on that.

so sorry GH cast. I will never watch a show the hepled exit what I watched for years AMC. This will never air in my home ever………I can watch all my favorite friendly actors on shows that matter and of course our own GH.
The spew CHEW can go down with Katie Wierd-yick….

NO CHEW FOR my house………….EVER……….!!!!

Not a chance in HELL, the show is stupid. I can wait one hour to see these actors perform in the only daytime show on ABC I will watch.

I smell desperation on the part of ABC in support of The Chew.

Hopefully whomever tunes in for GH, tunes right out the next day.

Hey wasn’t there some reality show that involved soap stars and others that did something JUST like this on soap net some years ago? I vaguely remember something about one of the male soap stars giving a tour of his home and then seeing what he does at home – it sometimes included cooking.

That part about what Ingo is going to do just sounds so deja vu to me.

Christine
Christine

I answered my own question. It was called 1 Day With and Wally Kurth hosted it. The tipoff for me was that Ingo did a segment that involved water sports as many may know he likes to compete in the Iron Man Triathalon.

An idea like The Chew is doing could be really good if they focused it on soap stars and their lives and unloaded everyone but Clinton Kelly and Mike Simon as they are likeable.

Rose
Rose

Won’t watch anything on ABC but Gh.End of that question.

susan M.
susan M.

I aree with Rose!!!!!!!!!!

Christine
Christine

Rose and susan M, what I meant was that what The Chew is doing is just like what SoapNet did with a show called 1 Day With that was hosted by Wally Kurth. The “talent” behind The Chew probably saw this and decided to copy the idea. It is so transparent because Ingo Rademacher did pretty much the same thing on 1 Day With when he showed his water sports. It is pathetic that they are trying to copy.

What I meant about the idea being good was not as a replacement to what’s left of our soaps, but back on a network like SoapNet because some viewers do like to see what the stars do at home and behind the scenes, but not at the expense of taking viewers away from the remaining soaps or losing a soap to a stupid reality/cooking show.

I will also be one of those who will watch the clips on You Tube. I have no desire to watch the spew – regardless who is on. I am glad to see General Hospital get some promotion (FINALLY!) – but I can’t give ABC/D any ratings other than when I watch GH. I do not feel it will hurt the actors by not tuning in. They get it.

Linda

Just goes to show how worried about the Spew ABC is. Will never ever watch the Spew! Bring back AMC!

susan M.

Ditto!!!!!!!!!

Christy

well, I might just record 2 shows next week — ahhhh, but my viewing will not be counted in the Spew’s ratings, so they won’t even know I was recording!

Mary Fergen

No way on this earth will I ever watch an episode of the Spew! It doesn’t matter who their guests are, my boycott of ABC/D continues. This is their way of trying to get the soap fans back watching their daytime lineup, and I can confidently say that it’s not going to work!

mary

S=Rel soap fans don’t back the show that replaced there soaps.good to the cooking channel.OOPs didn’t they get rid of Mario?Believe I red they phase him out.Maybe it was because he stole from his employees.

danicajolie

I won’t watch the Chew. Remember Mario Batali telling soap fans “to get over it”? He is just plain rude!

Christine
Christine

It’s more than him being rude. The guy is arrogant and has this holier than thou attitude. Hey, I’m Italian American too, but I don’t talk down to people the way he does with his cuisine and complicated recipes (which are not that great, by the way – especially the way he does the eggs in his tiramisu!). And then cheating his waitstaff out of tips. That is the straw that broke the camel’s back.

Of all the hosts that one can stomach, I would say it was Clinton Kelly and Mike Symon. Clinton was not bad with London and Symon is good as an Iron Chef. I still would not choose this over soaps any day.

KathyNYC

No way , no how. I will not watch the Chew period…but to “celebrate” soap actors on the anniversary of the demise of AMC? I mean the timing can’t be coincidental..it’s another slap in the face if you ask me. You got to be kidding? I am going to help give the Chew higher ratings by using soaps? Ummmm..NO!!! I wouldn’t even bother with clips..as it’s annoying to me that these GH actors chose to appear on the show to being with. I”ll pass.

susan M.

The Chew must be pretty desperate to do this.. Which means they are not doing well at all………….No surprise on that…Don’t like that the chew will invade GH nt. wk. at all..I can’t stand that show & the goofy peol-ple on it…Their comericals make me throw-up..And I will change the channel on GH when I see The Chew crew…They have a lot of nerve coming on GH !!!!!!! We don’t want thier greasy spoon on GH…What an insult to us the soap fans.We don’t want to boost their ratings at all…..It starts Mon. 24..Is this crap going to invade GH for a couple of days or all week!!!!!! Gordon Scott Excutive producer of The Chew is nuts with this screwball idea…I think it is a slap in the face to the soap fans…I can’t stand this cooking show (all cooking shows)..I never watch them…And I certainly don’t wan to see them on my soap….Don’t like this at all !!!!!!!!!!

I would only watch if God was on there. What a piece of crap by ABC. They are on the bottom of everything and they will never get any higher. Greasy disgusting Mario Batelli who steals money from his hard working employees. They can put on anyone they want and still no one will watch more of ABC’s decimated daytime lineup except their only really good show GH.

Tina

Oh for crying out loud, ABC/Disney! We will not watch The Spew! I don’t care who you put on the show. I watch GH for the stars of GH. I will not be manipulated into watching The Spew! We want All My Children and One Life to Live to be released so they can find a new home! NOTE TO FANS! DO NOT BE MANIPULATED BY THESE BASTARDS!

I hate the effing Chew. I have watched maybe 2 minutes of it & it is AWFUL. Still cannot believe ABC just yanked AMC & OLTL right out from under us. I will never, ever get over it & will never, ever forgive them. I also hate GH being moved to 1:00 central. Just messes up schedule on my days off. Really, really pisses me off.

EDNA BAREFOOT
EDNA BAREFOOT

Do they think soap fans are stupid? We have told them over & over again that we did not want talk or reality shows in the afternoon. We want our drama our entertainment back. We want OLTL & AMC back on. they don’t hear or are they stupid! I vote for the latter. The Spew is trash in my opinion & 1 segment of a GH star will not make me or other true soap fans watch. I watch nothing but GH on ABC & will not watch til I see my OLTL & Erika Slezak back on where they belong. I am a christian taught not to hate but I am as close as I can get to hating ABC but with the ability to forgive & even then I will Boycott ABC til I see OLTL.

The Chew is pathectic…..They are really grasping at straws…Why should we watch this crap that replaced AMC…..I will not watch it …NEVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Haven’t watched The Chew from day one & that is the way it’s going to stay…..This isn’t going to work for The Chew……Soap fans will never watch this !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Including myself(alway’s a soap fan)….That’s the way it will stay for me……………

Crystal

I enjoyed Julie’s segment but it was a struggle waiting for it because that show is awful. I’m just going to watch the other GH stars segments on Youtube because there’s no way I can sit through four more episodes of The Chew.

I hated AMC but I can’t believe that ABC replaced it with that poor quality talk show.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Franco Looks In The Mirror … And Believing He Is Drew Kisses Kim

This week on General Hospital, viewers have seen that when Franco (Roger Howarth) awoke from his mind-mapping implantation  (thanks to Shiloh and Dr Cabot) he woke up saying that he is “Drew Cain”.  Thus, as far we know, Franco now carries the life and memories of Drew from 2012 and back, and as of now, has no trace of Franco’s memories.

When Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) and Drew (Billy Miller) try to make Franco understand in his confusion what transpired,  Liz brings a mirror to Franco to see his face, which makes this all the more terrifying for him.  Liz insists to him that she is wife, but he tells her that he is sorry but he does not recognize her.  Franco insists he is going to leave town and Drew asks him to please stay put, as Liz promises that they can reverse what happened to him.  But can Liz really promise that?

Later, Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) fills Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Steve Burton) in on what happened and how Franco now was implanted with Drew’s memories, which leaves them stunned.  That means Franco, who is one of the people Jason loathes most in the world – now believes he is Jason’t twin brother.

Meanwhile, as Kim (Tamara Braun) and Julian (William deVry) prepare to leave Port Charles for Manhattan and start live anew, (so Kim can not be haunted by her life in Port Charles from the recent death of her son, Oscar) things are about to make a shocking turn … for her.

Back at GH, Liz is upset when Franco decides he must get out of his hospital room.  Liz is scared he will just skip town knowing he feels he has no ties there.  Drew reassures her that because he is a version of him, the pull will be way too strong for him to exit Port Charles.

Courtesy/ABC

Kim is now at the hospital getting ready to turn in her resignation letter and runs into Franco.  He recognizes her and calls her “Kim!” You can tell he is quite smitten with her.  Kim is not sure why Franco is acting that way.  She announces she is leaving Port Charles to which he says he is going to come with her. She sees he has a hospital ID bracelet on, so she thinks something has happened.  Just then, Franco tells her about the first time Drew Cain and her met up! This shocks Kim  … and the next thing you know … he moves in for a major kiss and lip-lock as Drew and Liz look on.

Breaking News

Constance Towers Returns To GH As Helena Cassadine … But Just How Does She Appear?

Now, any General Hospital fan knows that if there is skullduggery and evil going down, Helena Cassadine (whether dead or alive) is usually somehow involved when it comes to the lives of certain people in Port Charles.

And … some major storyline news from TV Line reveals that on next Monday’s August 19th episode of the ABC soap opera, Constance Towers reprises her role as the evil one herself … Helena!

Apparently, look for Helena to appear in a flashback with none other than Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) and about Drew Cain’s time in Afghanistan.  That scene might hold a key to just what Shiloh wants now that he has implanted Drew’s memories into Franco (Roget Howath), thanks to Dr. Cabot’s work.  But could what is revealed also relate to the story that will see Billy Miller (Drew) exit the canvas later this month? Stay tuned.

Viewers last saw Helena alive in story until November of 2016, but then she was part of Jake’s hallucinations that were a part of the chimera storyline that climaxed at the Nurses’ Ball back in May of 2017.

So what do you think Helena’s presence in a flashback will reveal? And, who is ultimately having that flashback? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Kelly Monaco Addresses Billy Miller’s Departure From GH

In a post via her twitter account, General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) shared her heartbreak on her longtime scene partner, Billy Miller’s (Drew) exit from the ABC daytime drama series.  This was the first time that Kelly addressed the situation in a public forum.

Miller came on to GH back in 2014 as Jason Morgan, following the departure of Steve Burton, who then wound up on Y&R.  When Burton returned to GH in 2017, Miller’s part was then turned-in-to, Jason’s twin, Drew Cain.

Through a great portion of Miller’s run on GH, he was paired romantically on -screen with Monaco and the duo were, and have remained, one of the most popular duo’s in daytime.

Monaco expressed the following in her message: “I feel like I have to address this situation. #BillyMiller ‘s untimely departure from #gh. Honestly, I can not come up with the words to describe how I feel about this decision… a decision that may not be what our audience thinks to be true. I’m heartbroken… more to come.”

Share your thoughts on Kelly’s message via the comment section below.
