Finally what many fans have waited for, a chance to hear directly from Rebecca Herbst on what went down behind-the-scenes a few months ago at General Hospital when the powers-that-be told the talented actress she had been let-go as Elizabeth Webber.  Of course later what transpired was an amazing fan backlash which seemed to have saved Herbst’s job!

In the new issue of ABC Soaps In Depth, Herbst told the publication on the firing, “It was surreal,” she recalls of that fateful Friday meeting with the show’s executives in which she was told the news. “I didn’t see it coming.” Elizabeth was the odd woman out in three romantic triangles, and is in the middle of a paternity issue between two brothers which is why the firing was a shocker to her. “That’s why it did take me by surprise,” she says with a sigh.

Well, Rebecca is front and center on GH starting today with the beginning of the Jake hit and run, and the aftermath! Stay tuned.

I am happy Becky is staying. I am really sad about this Jake storyline, but I know that there are going to be some power-house performances coming out of this, not only from Becky, but the rest of the GH cast involved in this, as well. That’s the reason I’m watching it.

I’m really upset that this chick gets to stay and other great actors or put on recurring status! What a bunch of bull! Her character was useless anyway. Instead of getting rid of Jake by a hit and run why not ELizabeth. Lucky & Siobhan could raise the kids.

I just wanted to add I think the reason that Jason & Liz had so many fans was the tasteful smoking hot love scene that created Jake. That was want did it for me ! Romantic at heart! A love that can never be makes fans want more! Sadly it is gone thanks RH & SB for the memories!

Jason and Liz did not have some many fans, if they did they would have been together long before Courtney/Sam.Liason only have fans on paper and thats due to Richard/Ryan pimping.Trust me if they had the fans,sshe would be with Jason.Sam got tied down, simply because they have chemistry and they are hot together and not boring.When JJ couldn’;t deal with Liz anymore, and R&R had her 6 fans whining for Jason and making up stuff in putting it in those mags and pimping the character, she should be on Broadway by now!Paper pimp ain’t good and thats all Liason… Read more »

The powers that be at GH should know that we have literally grown up with Rebecca as Elizabeth. We love her!! I didn’t even know that was going on til now. Maybe they should think about the characters that we cherish so dearly, and give them the great story lines. Instead of bringing back characters from the past that I/we absolutely hate. As in… A.J. Quartermaine, Heather Webber, Fasion. Get that hideous Connie Falconari off, and leave her as Kate. I personally hate A.J. and Heather so much, sometimes I can’t watch the show when their on.

Why the hell you do people keep whining about Jake? Jake was a bastard and nothing more.Liason was so bhot to get her into the Q’s they should have whin about that when AJ was on GH.Liz cannot do couples. the best she have ever been was with Lucky(JJ)and it wasn’t because of her skills but his!You fans get her thrown out there and get ran over by someone who can do it better.Liz needs to stop defending on everyone to get her ocer because, its going to happen she will get fired and no one is going to help… Read more »

A very familiar face to the town of Llanview and the beloved One Life to Live, will be appearing on your screens this week on General Hospital.

Susan Batten (Ex-Luna Moody, OLTL) will make a few guest appearances in scenes with Sasha played by Sofia Mattsson.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, Batten will play the role of home shopping-star Flora Gardens!

Batten former boss, Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) called Susan and said about the role: , “Okay, there’s this character named Flora Gardens.”  To which Susan responded, “Does she have teeth?”   After the two shared a laugh, Susan said “yes’ to the role.

OLTL fans will remember Luna’s torrid relationship with Max Holden (James DePaiva).

The actress/writer/producer reported that she was a ‘still very nervous’ acting on soap again (she last appeared on One Life in 2012), but said once she got into the rhythm of the shooting and delivering the lines it was all good.

So, looking forward to seeing Susan on GH? Comment below. But first, take a moment to stroll down memory lane in this clip from OLTL, when Max proposes to Luna.
