Richard Simmons Returns To General Hospital!

When we last saw Richard Simmons on General Hospital during the revival of the Nurses Ball this past April, he went loony-tunes all over Lucy Coe (Lynn Herring) and ended up being carried out by a bevy of beefcake after the gents of Port Charles did their “Magic Milo” act!

Now it look like the fitness guru is having another revival himself, as he just tweeted this morning that he is off to the ABC soap to tape another appearance! Is Richard coming back to torture Lucy Coe’s and her efforts with her new business with Laura (Genie Francis)? Or, is he going to make sure everyone sweat to the oldies and get in aerobics class on the seventh floor at GH?

Simmons tweeted, “Off to do General Hospital this morning…………what fun!”

OK, GH fans, what do you think Richard Simmons is doing in scenes this time on GH? Glad to see him for a return? Weigh-in! Literally! 🙂

I hope he’ll be nicer this time. And he definitely needs to teach an aerobics class!

Whatever he is back for…i hope itll mean more airtime for Lucy, Laura and some of the other vets. Maybe he’ll be Lucys business rival and cause her and Lauras new business venture a lot of problems.

“…ended up being carried out by a bevy of beefcake”.

Let’s hope that whatever he does, Richard can add some desperately needed comic relief to GH. Lord knows, the show needs that in the worst way. It would be fun to see him lead an aerobics class again. And hopefully, it will mean more screen time for some of the vets and much less for the screen hogging OLTL trio in their new roles that very few care about. I can dream, can’t I? Seeing Richard back on the show this past April for the 50th was a nice nod to his roots and a reminder that when he appeared… Read more »

In my mind more camp is the LAST thing GH needs right now… all I see are complaints about that. Really, what is the point of bringing him back on when budget dollars are so tight we almost never see Laura, or Anna, or Duke, or Lucy, or Felicia, or Mac? And yet money is wasted on this.

I hope it’s just for a quick appearance since I can’t stand him or Lucy.

Amen to that!!!! Why there was a need to even keep Lucy Coe is beyond me…Herring is one of the most talentless, hyperkinetic, scenery-chewing hacks that GH has ever cast, and I would greatly welcome her departure.

I love Lucy (and Lynn Herring). Guess it’s different type for different people 🙂

I think Lucy and Laura’s Spa will be a place of stories..
Richard will most likely work there..

The Spa is a step up from Roxy’s beauty salon..
hey, perhaps Roxy will work there also!

No more OLTL actors. We are being eaten by the cancelled show already. I am very happy Lucy is back, and I can’t wait for her and Laura to be on more than once a month. The last time Richard was on he was disgusting. Apparently RC doesn’t know all GH. He has ruined soap many vets, when he isn’t back burning them. Give us anything but the mob,and OL.

Oh Gawd….not that demented troll again!!!! His last appearance was absolutely revolting….how yesteryear’s goofy but kind busybody with a good, decent soul turned into a bitter and twisted freak is anyone’s guess, but we really do not need to be further subjected to this annoying trainwreck of a character….

Nothing against him; I’ve heard a lot of wonderful things about his humanity…But he was awful on GH this past go-around. Why would they want him back? I don’t want to see this latest incarnation torturing anyone in PC but the viewers if they write or allow the same style acting when he returns. The Nurses’ Ball stint just wasn’t funny to me. If he’s coming back, I hope it’s a better run. Good luck, Richard. Believe it or not, I’m actually pulling for ya.

Come on! Use common sense! He’s been stunt casting for forever on the show! They in no which way or form going to ruin this storyline by making HIM Sam’s father. They may goof up here and there, but theyre not idiots. And we shouldnt be either for thinking they’d go there. lol. He’s clearly coming back to be involved with Lucy/Deception Spa storyline somehow.

Some of you act like they are going to turn the entire series over to Richard Simmons! I’m pretty sure it will be a one or two episode appearance, like he did for the 50th Anniversary, probably adding up to ten total minutes of screen time, and that’s it-relax people!

As far as the comments about the show being “too campy,” please tell me what you DON’T consider campy-Cesar Faison coming back as Duke? Cassadines coming back from the grave? How are those storylines any LESS campy than some funny scenes with Felix & Sabrina and Britt & Brad?

Just more stunt-casting…can we please dispense with these waste-of-space characters (like Richard, Lucy, Sabrina, Taylor, TJ, and Shawn….) and get back to major players and storylines???? The Silas tale is nicely unfolding, don’t really mind RoHo ‘s “who is he today” act and am looking forward to the continuing Britt family saga, but still waiting for all these to tie together and provide answers to some questions dating back to last year. We need some more vets to come back….please get Frisco and Noah to return ASAP…they are two of the best leading men from GH’s heyday, and what about… Read more »

Richard Simmons is a nice guy and all, but how about getting John Stamos back for a guest appearance?

I loved seeing Richard back again. I stopped watching GH a long time ago. This was a hot soap in my high school days almost 30 years ago. I was skipping channels and happen to see him in a scene. His being on that day was the only reason I stopped and watch. Bring it on Richard!

Kim Delaney on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “All They Have To Do Is Ask, and I’m There”

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.

TONIGHT: Kim Delaney Stars in Lifetime’s ‘The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’

Make sure to catch General Hospital and former All My Children and NYPD Blue star, Kim Delaney (Jackie, GH, Ex-Jenny, AMC) tonight on Saturday, February 20th when her highly-anticipated Lifetime movie debuts beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST which marks the cable network’s 400th original movie.

In The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, it tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island.

After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle, Hannibal) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long.

Delaney’s film, executive produced by Deborah Norville, is based off real life-events that transpired in the early 2010’s where the crimes were never solved.

In an interview with 98.1 WOGL Radio’s Glenn Kalina, Delaney shared: “There is hope in the film… but you also want an answer… what happened to all of these girls?  My character just was relentless trying to find her (daughter) or find answers where she was.  They found a bunch of other bodies, and what they learned was that they were all escorts… and then they learned there was a possible serial killer.”

Check out a promo for the movie below.

‘ABC Daytime: Back on Broadway’ Raises $130,565 For Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS In Four Day Streaming Event

Last week, ABC Daytime fans were thrilled to see some of the archival footage and performances from the ABC Daytime: Salutes Broadway Cares benefit concerts by those who were once in the mighty soap programming block that included: All My Children, One Life to Live and General Hospital. 

While only GH remains, viewers still loved seeing many of their favorites perform in the streaming event, ABC Daytime: Back on Broadway, from Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, which featured footage from those events that ran from 2005-2011 in front of a live audience in New York City.

The 2021 online event, which kicked-off on February 11th and streamed for four days, featured new content with daytime favorites including: Susan Lucci, Cameron Mathison, Anthony Geary, Kelly Ripa and more, plus performances from the past benefits, and an original dance performance from Finola Hughes (Anna Devane) on the set of GH.

John Dietrich, who directed each of the ABC Daytime Salutes Broadway Cares concerts, wrote and directed the stream. It was presented in partnership with ABC Owned Television Stations’ websites around the country with support from Good Morning America and The View.

According to Broadway World, in total, the ABC Daytime Back on Broadway event raised $130,565. The streaming total includes a matching donation of $50,000 made by Broadway Cares supporters The Dream Alliance.  Now, when combined with the seven-year run of the annual concerts, the ABC Daytime stars have raised $2,020,565 for Broadway Cares.

As part of the event week, Michael Fairman chatted with former One Life to Live star, Catherine Hickland (Ex-Lindsay Rappaport) about her performances over the years at the event, her role of Lindsay and her on-screen feud with Nora (Hillary B. Smith), and more.  You can watch it below.
