Mr. Burgi will need to be shirtless. Just saying. Seriously, great news for GH and daytime. And a good pairing for Jane Elliot. Please give this pair some top-drawer story!?! Loved him on ATWT back in the day.

I agree. Burgi is hot. More importantly, he and Tracy connect. I truly enjoyed their banter. Great match. He is a keeper.

He is SOOOOO handsome and HOT !! I wonder if he is SINGLE ?? : )
He would be the type of man I would approach & try to find out more about him… my type , age appropriate & handsome……… sure he has plenty of depth too!!

Go for it, Kristalle….better yet, go get him !!!! LOL. That’s what I call a man….other than my husband, of course…

Sorry to disappoint ladies but you know what they say… “All the great guys are either married or gay”… (lol) Richard IS married to the lovely Liliana… He also has 2 teen-age sons from his 1st marriage & a 7 yr. old stepson from his current marriage. *sighs* I feel your pain… (lol)

So hot! But he is also a good actor . He first came to my attention as Chad the ipimp with the heart of gold on the now defunct “Another World”. Man he just keeps on looking better the older he gets. Before he was on “Desperate Housewives”, he was on the wickedly, funny show that starred.Jay Mohr-trust me, you would have to see the episode to believe it. I am truly shocked that episode got by the powers that be.

It is more than obviou that FV is at work bring back or up the Quartermaines..
Only so much can be done, now..
Tracy has a friend Sabrina..
They are getting stories for the Q’s, that means anything Q wise could happen..
There is Dillon and now Tracy’s ex and Nikolas takeover to bring the Q’s upfront..

Welcome back character Paul Hornsby!

It’s going to be great fall !!! 🙂

su0000, I really hope you’re right and the Q’s are being built back up (again, like last year). But my question is: Where the heck is Leslie as Monica during all this Q family story? Seriously, why isn’t she even on once in a while? I can’t remember the last time we saw her. Anyone have any facts to share?

Ghlover026
Guest
Ghlover026

I know right! She is a vital part (in my opinion) to the Q’s and I miss her so much. I think I read somewhere that she returns the 13th. Hope they give her a good story. She should be Chief Of Staff, Not Dr.O…

Maybe Monica/Leslie has something going on in her life. May be SHE wants a break. She could be fighting an illness (I hope not), or maybe she wants to 0enjoy her life away from the camera. There always different sides to a story, that we-as fans- are not always privy to. Ijs.

Well, at least we finally can celebrate the reappearance of the mysteriously-missing Monica! Looks like LC is back for the lead-up to Jakeson discovering his true identity. By the way, was it just me, or did the returning Quartermaine matriarch bear somewhat of a resemblance to Miss Dinah Shore? I couldn’t help but notice….

So…you have no emotional connection to Laura, who has been the emotional epicenter of the show for 4 decades…yet youre over the moon for a recast Paul Hornsby, last seen on the show 21 years ago. I thought Laura was before your time!

I didn’t realize this actor had previously appeared on a daytime soap. However, I recognize him from various nighttime shows. Too bad that he is going to GH. I really could see him playing an age-appropriate new love for Ashley Abbott on Y&R. Ashley really could use a stable romantic relationship. I definitely do NOT ever want to see her pining for Victor again. I can’t remember Ashley have a “good” romantic partner since she was married to Steven Lassiter over 25 years ago!! I’m not even going to mention her present infatuation with Stitch. It doesn’t work.

He looks like Chuck Woolery-original Wheel Of Fortune game show host-in that photo…i rarely watched GH in those years so i dont recall the other actor in the role…did not care for his AW character-think he was Chad on there but i didnt care too much for AW in those days…ok enough of the flashback…will he and Tracy have a lasting storyline or will he be with a newbie instead-i know, he and Tracy will reunite and then he has an affair with her new best bud Saperella Santiago…lol

@jimh….While I would have loved to see the gorgeous Paul Satterfield reprise his role, RB is a fine choice of replacement. He plays the roguish lout very well! This is finally a positive direction for GH….adding some former characters of the right age to inhabit Port Charles. (Although, there has been an overabundance of recasts as of late….4 in just the past month! Toooo many!…Certainly there were enough former original cast members willing to return as the other characters for whom we have been clamoring?)

I just hope the writing turns around soon…i rarely watch lately…just glad the actor is part of the Qs storyline…just hope Paul doesnt fall for Sap or turns out to be her father…what if Paul is Sabrinas dad???

@jimh….Thankfully, it would seem that Paul’s “activities” outside of his marriage to Tracy have produced another….son? I just read a spoiler which indicates he tells Dillon he may have a bro in Port Charles….but who could it be???? The only other dude of appropriate age would be Nathan…..could Mr. Hornsby be the aforementioned ex of Liesl’s??? It’s hard to think of him as being more frightful than a Cassadine as a prospective babydaddy, but stranger things have happened….especially with the way the showrunners love to retcon practically every storyline these days. As for the Sapster, could we please just leave… Read more »

I think it’s awesome that Richard Burgi is now on #GH! I always enjoyed his acting, he’s an excellent performer & can play all type of characters…..nice to look at too! Welcome back to daytime, Richard!!!

Nonni

The problem is he plays all characters the same way. Not a big stretch in acting. Would have loved to see Paul back. But then again I still love Luke , Laura, Robert, Holly and all the Quartermaines. Ha miss all the good storylines too. The writers can’t seem to bring it like the old team.

Ah, okay. I really liked Paul Satterfield in the role back in the day. Recently, he was on a few episodes of The Bay, and I was hoping Paul would return. I enjoy Richard Burgi and remember him as Chad on Another World? Was he involved with Marley? or Vicki, or both?
Anyways, great that GH is bringing back an ex-husband for Tracey.
Will Jenny follow?

Hey Jeremy !

Why? He and Jane sizzle with chemistry. You don’t think so? Well, we never know. I guess it could happen, albeit Tracy deserves a little happiness.

Shay

That’s EXACTLY why it should happen, CeeCee! Paul with Tracy AND Laura would be a great love triangle….Ms. Quartermaine already has a history of animus for Luke’s “Angel,” can you just imagine if once again she has to fight with her for a man’s affections???? Good drama! (Plus, GF deserves a handsome one this time around after having had the likes of Luke and Scotty in recent years….LOL.)

@Shay, Poor Laura. Seriously. Look at what she had to contend all her life…HaHa. Regardless; I would have to see how Laura and Paul mesh. I liked what I saw between him and Tracy. I always thought her scenes with Luke were stilted….however, I have no idea how he and Tracy , or with Laura, also, interacted. Was there chemistry? There must have been with Laura, considering the magnificence of their love? That’s all I hear. WOW, did the set light up when they entered the stage? Scotty? Oh, I always forget about him.

Oh, CeeCee….Back in the day, the chemistry was totally there for Luke and Laura….however, basically what you have seen in the past few weeks has been a one-way effort on GF’s part….she continued to radiate her trademark luminance, and TG simply refused to bask in it by putting in the most perfunctory of performances….at least before Friday. At last, he finally looked his ex-beloved in the eye and surrendered for a moment to their incredible history. While it was brief, it did actually happen. Perhaps that is as good as it will get….I hope to the contrary, but I’m taking… Read more »

Well Tracy needs a strong partner to banter off with now that Luke is going bye bye– so digging up another one of her ex’s to fit the bill makes sense, now that Dillon is back too.

This is true, Laurie! I’m so sick of the endless parade of hipster boys with the same hairdos/facial stubble/beards in their always “Casual Friday” mode of dress. It’s nice to see an immaculately groomed adult male in proper attire, with the savoir faire to match! At last, GH has a true leading man type!

I’m not familiar with the original story or actor but from what I read he was older than Tracy. This actor is ten years younger…though he seems older to me than 56. Haven’t seen their interaction yet…not caught up…but they seem to play off each other well. Good looking guy…

Rebecca, the original actor who played Paul Hornsby was a bit younger than Tracy. I recall them mentioning it at the time.
He fell in love with Jenny Eckert (Bill Eckert’s little sister and Ned’s wife).

Thanks, Harry. I remember now that during the Fluke story they said Ned was married to an Eckert. I don’t remember him with anyone other than Lois and Alexis…and the affair with Monica.

Guess what? Stop the presses. I actually liked him! Yes me, the cantankerous, old grouch who is always complaining that the coffee is cold. And he and Tracy bantered so well together–they were pitch perfect and seamless with their transitions.

Let’s keep him.

I enjoyed Paul Satterfield in the role previously. I know they’ve worked w/him on OLTL after that for a long while. Maybe he wasn’t available.

Spectacular choice! He instantly sizzles w/Jane Elliot! This man is classy, professional, a great actor, a seasoned actor, smooth as butter, completely into his scenes. He’s a sexy as hell, old enough to be my daddy-I’d love to call him DADDY!

Excellent choice although PS, the previous Paul looks like Dillon. RB does not, but EXCELLENT choice nonetheless. This man was meant to be on our screens. He’s in his element. WELCOME!!!

My initial thought was, Jane Elliot is SO good that she can even make Sabrina tolerable. However, Richard Burgi doesnt need Jane;s magic because of how good HE is but together they are daytime gold! I cannot wait for more scenes! I really think Paul and Laura might connect and Tracey will become jealous and go after him. A new love triangle? Lets hope! The ladies deserve the story and we deserve Richard!

While it is a bit random to bring Paul Hornsby back, I would have much preferred Paul Satterfield to reprise the role. Richard Burgi kind of irks me as an actor, so I’m not too keen on this recast right now.

Yay. Someone agrees. He seems nice enough and was really handsome during the Sentinel show era. Now he is showing his age and has always been a lackluster actor. Not sincere I think. Sorry people.

Paul Hornsby is not only back just for Tracy, he is also Dillon’s father.

But, suuuu. How do you know Jane is a better actress than Genie? You said you are not familiar with Genie or her acting. I loved Laura as Genevieve on Y&R. And, from the few weeks she’s been on GH, I fell in love all over again. She is so sweet, and a natural.
Actually, I love both actresses. Each offers something different, engaging and charming in her own way. We need not compare them.
C’mon, Su. It’s time you look at Laura with a more benevolent eye, yes? Okay, then….

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

PS.
Don’t get me wrong, Su. I much prefer Tracy and Paul together as well. But, one thing has nothing to do with the other. That is, we can’t compare these two wonderful actresses. I just have a feeling Genie’s sojourn will be a short-short one.
Laura and Valerie? What Timmm said.

AWESOME CHOICE—THEY NEED A CHARISMATIC ACTOR LIKE HIM TO PLAY TRACEY’S NEW LOVE INTEREST

Breaking News

Ingo Rademacher Speaks Out On His Dismissal From GH Sharing: “I Was Hoping to Play Jax For Another 10 or 25 Years and Unfortunately, That’s Not Going to Happen”

For the first time since he was fired for not adhering to General Hospital’s and Disney/ABC’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate, Ingo Rademacher (Ex-Jax), addressed his exit from the soap opera via an “official video” message on his Instagram account.

Ingo expressed: “I’m sorry that I didn’t put out this video earlier, but this is about thanking you guys, the fans of the show and also the GH crew and cast. I was on the show for 25 years. They were like my family a lot of the people there. I was hoping to play Jax for another 10 or 25 years and unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. I want to thank you guys for sticking with Jax for 25 years and I’m sorry that I’m not there anymore to play Jax, which is still something that I am trying to process  … it’s just kind of crazy.”

Rademacher also took aim at his former co-star, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) for announcing on Twitter that he was no longer on the show, before he had a chance to do so, which he says was a huge disappointment to him given that they worked together for 25 years.

He went on to say how he appreciated all the positive comments from the fans adding, “A lot of you come on there to say that you’re vaccinated but stand for medical freedom, I love hearing that, because I believe it should be a choice.”  Ingo continued to express his view, “I don’t agree with vaccine mandates or corporations ever being able to mandate a vaccine to keep your job.”

The actor closed with another nod to the viewers of GH adding, “Thank you so much for supporting me for 25 years. I will have more news later on, but for now, just wanted to thank all of you amazing fans. Thank you.”

You can watch Rademacher’s full statement via his IG post below.  Then, let us know what you thought of Ingo’s long-awaited exit message in the comment section.

Kristina Wagner Shares She’s Back On Contract at General Hospital

This past week, General Hospital fans were thrilled with the news that longtime fan favorite, Kristina Wagner (Felicia) was on her way back to the soap opera to tape new episodes.  However on Saturday, the actress shared even bigger news.  She is back on contract at the ABC daytime drama series.

Kristina revealed via her Instagram: “I’m pleased to announce I just finished my first work week on contract with General Hospital. The good people there have made it a well oiled machine. I’m so impressed with the way they navigate the Covid protocols. It’s not easy but we’ll worth it. We’ve got some fun storylines coming up. I’ve been thrown in the middle of a current storyline and I think Felicia’s part in it gives it some color. Stay tuned!”

Earlier in the week on Tuesday via Twitter, Kristina expressed: “Tomorrow I head back to work on General Hospital! Lucky me. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of that family once again. Here we go. More to come. Felicia Scorpio rides again.”

Wagner began her GH role as Felicia Cummings, the Aztec princess back in 1984 and has appeared on and off the show since then.

So what storyline do you think Felicia will get thrown into? Will she return to Port Charles to help Maxie (Kirsten Storms)?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud Deliver One-Two Punch as Britt & Carly Grieve the Loss of Jason

When General Hospital goes for the emotional jugular, it is very often top-notch daytime drama, and that was on full display through Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series in key scenes as the news of Jason’s ‘death’ hit Port Charles.

In the wake of Steve Burton’s (Ex-Jason) dismissal from the show for not adhering to the vaccine mandate, it did open up the story and provide for a huge fallout for those who loved the mob hitman.

In the end, it was Carly (Laura Wright) and Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), who seemingly felt the loss the hardest.  Initially, upon learning how Jason ‘died’ helping Britt locate her mother, Liesl (Kathleen Gati), a defiant Carly blamed Britt for Jason never coming home.

In Wednesday’s episode, we saw how Carly and Britt tried to cope with the knowledge that Jason was buried under a rubble in a cave, with no sign of life, or his body found.

Overwhelmed with grief, Carly heads to the footbridge to be close to the spirit of Jason and to mourn him as tears flow.  She is stunned to see Britt show up there, too.  Carly is surprised that Britt even knew about the bridge that Jason had rebuilt thank to a generous donation from him.  Britt tells Carly that she and Jason had a lot of time to talk while they were on the run.  After Carly explains that Jason was her person and had been her other half, Britt offers to leave. S he expresses that she thought coming to the bridge would make her feel closer to Jason.

Then, in a heartbreaking moment, Britt assures Carly that she blames herself for what happened to Jason and hates herself.  Then, Carly has a moment of clarity that Jason would want her to forgive Britt.  Generous thoughts never come naturally to Carly, but Jason always set her straight on how to handle life’s most difficult situations.

In the final moments of the episode, with both women in tears, Britt moves to the center of the bridge with her arm around Carly, after Carly tells her she doesn’t want her to go.  The two stand together bonded over the man they both loved.

These scenes were masterfully played by Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud. They were gut-wrenching, powerful, and sad all at the same time.  We think many viewers needed several hankies during these scenes.

So, what did you think of the Carly and Britt bridge scenes …. and the work of Laura and Kelly? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
