Robin Riker Previews Her GH Role As Hayden's Mother, Naomi Dreyfus!

Next Friday, June 3rd GH fans should be on the lookout for  soap veteran Robin Riker (Ex-Beth, B&B) when she makes her on-screen debut as Rebecca Budig’s (Hayden) on-screen mother, Naomi Dreyfus.

Riker is set to hit the canvas with a character she described to Soap Opera Digest (in their latest issue on newsstands now) as: “She was a wife of a Bernie Madoff-type character and was strong and could stand up for herself, but she did love her daughter.  She was a mutlifaceted character, which is the thing that interested me the most.”  In addition, Riker, who had never met or worked with Budig previously, said it was not difficult at all connecting with her as her on-screen daughter: “We’re having a little lovefest.  She’s a doll! She’s gorgeous and smart and sweet, so it’s lovely to work with an actor like her.”

As to just how Naomi gets into the mix is yet to be seen.  Will she be involved in the Nikolas Cassadine (Tyler Christopher) mystery, since Hayden is up to her neck as one of the prime suspects and mom comes to the rescue … or … is she just there to retrieve the diamonds? Could Naomi having anything to do with Nik’s body disappearing?

Will Naomi pique the interest of gentleman in Port Charle?   If so, who do you think it will be?  Share your thoughts on Riker’s upcoming emergence on to the GH canvas in the comment section below!

I love Robin Riker, she is a terrific actress. Now we need Erika Slezak, to play Claudette mom on GH. Come on Frank Valentint, call Erika Slezak. We need her back on Daytime. Great casting Bree Williamson ex Jessica OLTl will be great as Claudette.

Terrific idea Frank, I miss Erika so much. I would love to see Erika Slezak on GH. She needs to come back to Daytime television.

Ryan…I (also) miss Erika Slezak. Erika would be such a M-A-J-O-R CASTING COUP for GH!!!!! And…most of all, Erika would give GH a MUCH NEEDED SHOT IN THE ARM!!!!! Y-e-p.

Would love nothing more than to see Erika back on my small screen. However, GH is wayyyyy too crowded already.
What I really wish is for OLTL to come back.

You’re just what I need to make my day, Jimmy. You are too funny.
Erika would be much welcomed, but she wouldn’t like the commute from NYC.
Plus, Rosette is really Claudette with a split personality. She really needs to get that monkey (Frank) off her back, LOL.

ABC word to the wise. .if you’re going to base characters off a short run mini series. ..THEN MAKE SURE IT HASN’T ALREADY AIRED MONTHS AGO. ..I see they snuck it on this Saturday..and her last name is Dreyfus as in Richard the star of Madoff. .something is going terribly wrong with this show. .whacked out recasts..whacked new hires..breaking up couples people want to see a month to two after a wedding. ..I’m over GH and JP and SA

ok, have to mention..
It all seems to lose .. Everything is like unrung bells.

and, with Nikolas presumed dead and gone then who is taking care of Spenser?
the writing is a big dump of scrambled plots.
I can not see Nikolas ever leaving Spenser, not ever.
So- if J&S are going the way of Nikolis setting it all up and leaving Spenser believing his father is dead, that would be so bad ..

and there is zero buildup as to whom would even want Nikolas dead/ or whatever– no buildup, it’s just thrown out there.

Spenser can take care of himself…he and Joslynn knocked of Unsaint Nik and next on their list is Bitchel(Rachel) in Children Of The Corney!!!!…lol

My guess — Nicholas staged his own death to get back at Jason or Hayden or both. In a preview of next week’s plots, Spencer is described as having no reaction to his father’s possible demise. Probably because Nick told him what he was doing ahead of time so as not to worry him.

The end is almost here. For General Hospital. I am sorry to say this, but ABC wants out of the soap business. ABC always cancel good shows, like Nashville. I really hope Nashville gets picked up, by another network. Come on NetFlix, pick up Nashville please. General Hospital is on its last leg. Mark my words, GH will be gone next year.

Then if that is truly the case give people what they want to see.

Hope you’re wrong about GH, but you’re right about NASHVILLE. I miss it already and when I look at ABC’S summer and fall rosters, I start getting nauseous. WHAT are they (not) thinking?

The people running GH are intent on running it in the ground. Hayden is a huge failure. She’s on her third backstory and we still don’t give a flying flip. She should’ve been written out months ago & most certainly not given a family.

GH is bloated and characters we know & love get crumbs while TPTB just keep hiring. The latest being Claudette. No one can write for a cast this large.

TPTB need to get rid of Hayden, her family, Nina, Valerie, Paul, Claudette,etc… And quit nickle & dimeing vets like Becky/Tyler for all these unwanted newbies.

Thank you. I agree 100%. I really wish ABC would intervene in this mess.

Re: Hayden. Yes, major fail. She gets a mom and, 20 years on, we STILL do not even know the name of Liz Webber’s mother. Frank’s priorities are not the priorities of GH’s core audience. That, in a nutshell, is what is wrong with GH and why it is sinking like a stone.

How about a clever twist…no one actually pushed Nik(didnt he just fall from a building months ago-where is his amnesia???-lol)…he just tripped and fell-oh, if only Henry Slezar was here to write these mysteries!!!

Nay, my guess he faked his death whether to get back at Hayden for wanting to rat him out to the police or to buy some time from his creditors — with the body just disappearing like that, my soap senses are telling me this is a set up.

Agreed . The writing on GH lacks continuity and build up. I don’t understand why that is so difficult. Yes there are too many useless characters that serve no purpose.
Hayden/Rachel is one of them along with Nina, Valerie, Paul, Ava and many more. As far as Erika Slezak joining, that would be amazing. Even more amazing would be Melissa Archer who should have joined years ago. The family dynamic and relationships are what viewers want.

Sounds more like people here wasn’t an influx of past actors from OLTL I doubt that happens. The show killers are picking up steam again and now over on Days.. Jen Lilley as Theresa has quit.. Well like years gone by I’ll just ride out out.. My first time watching a long time soap go off the air was Love Of Life during it’s final week in 1980.. the year daytime roared back work a vengeance.. The stories.. The characters across all three networks… You didn’t know WHICH ONE to watch lol.. I was a channel hopping gleeful so and… Read more »

I suppose the crooked D.A. will be attracted to Hayden/Rachel’s mother then . . .

No one cares about Hayden no one if you want to bring on new faces then connect them to the history of the show no one ever learns. What’s the definition of failure ? Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome!

GH’s Kirsten Storms Shares More Details on Her Brain Surgery and Recovery

On Sunday, Kirsten Storms (Maxie, General Hospital) posted a follow-up message on her Instagram account to her friends and followers on how she is doing following her brain surgery, and to answer any questions that may be out on there; so she decided to share further details.

Storms expressed: “First, thank you for all of the well wishes I’ve received over the last few days. 🥰 Little bit of info for those who are wondering.. I spent the last few years having random health issues that I disregarded as side affects to my medications or just something I was experiencing due to age. When I went to get an MRI for some severe neck pain I have been experiencing for the last few months (I assumed this neck pain was also causing my frequent “migraines”) my amazingly thorough orthopedist ordered an MRI of my head just to be on the “safe side” – even though that isn’t his area of expertise.  Truly a great doctor.  That’s when we stumbled upon a rather large, very full of fluid, cyst that was attached to the lower portion of brain. I feel very fortunate that my situation wasn’t more serious and that I had a wonderful neurosurgeon who immediately knew how to fix it. I’m not gonna lie, brain surgery had me nervous, but I’m immensely thankful to my family, friends, and incredible “work family” who have been supportive, kind and loving during a time when I’ve been feeling a lot of emotions. Work is a great place to be everyday and for the 2 months leading up to my surgery I found a lot of comfort being around the people I’ve worked beside for so many years. I’m excited to get back to it after my recovery. (Yes, they shaved a portion of my head, so please no comments if you don’t like my hair. It’s temporary.). Again, thank you to everyone for sending positive vibes my way. It’s not gone unnoticed. ♥️

Fun fact: I now firmly believe the new plates in my brain will give me some sort of special ability. Fingers crossed I can suddenly knit a sweater in 1 day. Ooo maybe 1 hour. 😮”

Please continue to send well-wishes to Kirsten via the comment section below as she is on the mend, and we look forward to her return to GH when she is recovered.

GH’s Kirsten Storms Reveals She Is Recovering From Brain Surgery

On Friday afternoon, General Hospital’s Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones) took to her Instagram Story accompanied in the car by her best friend, Emme Rylan (Ex-Lulu, GH) that she just underwent brain surgery.  In the video, Storms was in a neck brace.

In her message to her fans and friends, Kirsten shared: “I’ve not really spoken about this much, or at all, actually.  But, less than 48 hours ago, I had brain surgery, hence the neck brace.  It was on the lower portion of my brain. Emme is taking care of me until I get to my at-home nurse. It has been an interesting last couple of days.”

Kirsten went to clarify what kind of surgery it was, revealing: “What they had to drain and remove was not cancer. I want to clarify that right now before the Internet, goes crazy wild with rumors about this. I had a very large cyst that had split into two and the doctor said it was so full, the pressure was very noticeable when they opened up my skull.”

Now that the pressure is relieved from her brain, Storms will be healing and taking time off from work at GH, expressing: “I will be on the mend for the next several weeks. I will be back at work when this is over with.”

Share your well-wishes for a safe and speedy recovery to Kirsten via the comment section below.
