A star to play Starr? Could be very cool!

Again I agree, was thinking the same thing that she is the new Starr Manning. She’s really pretty and it would be awesome!

It’s about time soaps came into the 21st century!!!!!

((and she stole my body, I just wanted ya’all to know that 🙂

her body or the dummy she is leaning on?(im joking but i had to ask…lol

Looks like the new Starr to me.

Thats what im thinking…

Agree!

Id prefer her to be sarah

Very cute but not the brightest girl. “About to film my television acting debut”? It’s on the Internet dear, not television.

But for me its on television…i get my internet through my tv!

I don’t like her it seems like OLTL is trying to put too much of the shows stories to the youth. I don’t want OLTL to try to become something different they need to sick to the families. Hiring some singer who probably can’t even act just because she is almost famous is a really had move. I am still supporting OLTL and Prospect Park though and I am still eagerly awaiting April, 29.

It looks like they are sticking to the families from what iv read on who is returning. This singer might b the new starr but whoever she is im sure she’ll be connected to the families in some ways. But she just better know how to act.

She looks like a more badass, no-nonsense Starr who could keep bratty younger brother Jack in his place. But as Starr or not im just hoping she can act as good as she can sing. ill give her a chance b4 i judge. But will this all work out…? What sounds good so far doesnt mean a thing. its more about the stories than anything else. And like all soaps some of these stars can still quit, or be fired. So ill wait and see how it all comes together April 29th. Now once again there will be 6 soaps and hopefully this will be part of the turnaround 4 the genre. Which soap we decide to watch or not, lets be gratful we still have them around with us.

Replayed video: Song not as good as i thought the first time but she might appeal to the younger teen crowd. As 4 acting i cant tell…so ill judge after i see the first few episodes…

Not good news at all this woman looks like she is a bad actor and has been brought on to help with ratings. I can already tell I’m going to hate her.

They should reveal that Irene was behind Cole and Hope’s disappearance too.

A producer from OLTL is on Twitter and says that Jessie is NOT the new Starr Manning. Since she’s supposed to play an aspiring musician could she be Tina & Cord’s rock star daughter Sarah aka “Flash”?

General Hospital’s John J. York On His Health Battle & Living Life While Waiting for Bone Marrow Transplant: “Let’s Just Go One Day At a Time”

John J. York’s positive outlook on his current medical diagnosis is quite remarkable, as his approach might be one many facing the same circumstances might consider.  The beloved General Hospital vet, where he has played Mac Scorpio for 22 years, revealed last week that he is battling cancer.

The popular soap star shared that he has been fighting myelodysplastic syndromes, or MDS, and multiple smoldering myeloma: two blood and bone marrow disorders.

York spoke with PEOPLE about how he found out about his diagnosis, the support his wife Vicki has shown throughout, and how he lives life day to day, while he waits for an all-important bone marrow transplant.

The actor shared what happened the moment he learned of his diagnosis: “(The doctor) was explaining all these different things and cells and all different levels and words that had, you know, 25 letters in them. And I didn’t understand. And Vicki finally came out and said, ‘Does John have cancer?’ And he said, ‘Yes.’ And I’m sitting there, I’m really just like a fly on the wall, listening to him talk to Vicki because she was the one asking all the questions.  At the end of his doctor’s conversation with Vicki, York’s one question was simple: ‘Why do I feel so good?’”

Vicki and John were in the process of moving to Tennessee to be closer to their daughter, Skyler, but considering UCLA in Los Angeles as John’s treatment center.  In the end, Skyler’s husband suggested Vanderbilt University for John’s cancer center so he did not have to travel back and forth to the west coast.

Since March of this year, John has had IV chemo treatments every month, with another one coming up in September. On that, John expressed: “It is what it’s, you know what I mean? And then everybody’s gotta get their treatment. And then you go home, go about your life and you play with the kids. And here we are.”

Currently, York is waiting for a bone marrow transplant. He has been moved up the donor priority list. If anyone is interested, and you are between 18-40, you can join the registry here bethematch.org/matchformac.

York shared how Vicki is coping with what’s ahead: “Yeah, she’s scared, but believe it or not, I really kinda wasn’t because I feel great. Personally, I feel like it’s in God’s hands. God’s will be done. It’s gonna work out okay, one way or another. I’m either gonna survive or I’m not. And life goes on and things are gonna be okay for everybody… Let’s just go one day at a time.”

Share your well-wishes, and support and love to John, as he goes through the next phase of his health battle and let’s hope a bone marrow transplant donor is found for him soon. After all, we all want to see Mac Scorpio return to Port Charles, but more importantly, we all want John to feel better and beat this.Comment below.

Mark Grossman’s Mom to Appear on The Young and the Restless

Look who’s coming to Genoa City? None other than Mark Grossman’s (Adam Newman) mother, Patricia! The talented actor revealed on a series of posts on his Instagram story, that mom will be a part of an upcoming episode of the The Young and the Restless.

Accompanying his video shared on September 19th, Mark  “When Mom comes to the studio… we put you to work!” He then wrote, “Crushing it.”  Another video showed Mark’s mom receiving some blocking directions from one of the members of the Y&R crew.

In that video, the crew members instructed Patricia to smile while at the counter before walking away to the other side of the set.  That’s when Patricia remarked, “Can I have a cookie?”

Still another moment that was captured featured Patricia sitting in the background while Michael Damian (Danny) and Michelle Stafford (Phyllis) were engaged in what looked like quite the conversation.
