Is the former star of The Bold and the Beautiful , Ronn Moss (Ex-Ridge), going to make an appearance during today’s episode of the Nurses Ball on ABC’s General  Hospital?

Well, according to an piece with ABC Soaps In Depth, that just might come to pass! The question is, who is Moss playing? Will he act and sing during his appearance?

Moss revealed to SID how it came to pass that he ended up in Port Charles: “(GH’s head writer), Ron Carlivati came up with the concept. He ran it by Frank (Valentini, executive producer).  Everybody loved it!”

As far as showing up on another soap opera on a rival network other than his 25 year run over at CBS, Moss says Cartini has smarts: “It shows me how savvy the guys are who are running GH.  I think it’s going to be a good payoff for them.”

So, how do you think Ronn will show up on GH?  Let us know!

I think Ronn Moss will play a character who will perform at the Nurse’s Ball .Yeah i’m sure he might also interact with some of the other characters but him been on GH might mostly be for a musical purpose.

I have a feeling that Ron Moss will be the Blackie Parrish they will present on Monday and not John Stamos. If they do that I will NOT watch anylonger. I never cared for Ron Moss anyhow.

Wonder how much RC and Frank paid him to say they that they were smart coming up with this storyline – should have brought back Miguel to sing again ! The Power to believe – 1995 Nurses Ball –

Always have been a fan of Y&R and BB, started when they first aired. Now at this point in my life as I have gotten older I really don’t care who goes and who stays. Todays witers are just awful, they change so often and new writers don’t know the back story especially on Y&R. Y&R is just plain awful.. BB is hard to watch these days, so it only takes me around 10 minutes on Y&R and less time for BB.. Of course the actors are there for a pay check and I don’t blame them, that will end in a few yrs. so take it while you can…

I never thought Ronn was that talented as an actor. His over the top “soap” acting is the style that gives soaps a bad name. Music is a different story for him. Really hope this stay is short lived. RC needs to stop focusing on creating new characters for the residuals & utilize the beloved characters. That’s my opinion…

Melinda

Oh you need to take your meds right now. Lol. Ronn is a wonderful actor, you sound very miserable.

MamaBear

I don’t normally reply to these types of posts because everyone has different opinions, & we’re all entitled to them. However, insulting someone by telling them to “take their meds”, & saying they sound “very miserable”, just because you don’t agree with their opinion, is a personal attack, & childish & unnecessary. Express your views, but you don’t need to insult or bully people when doing it. Oh, and “lol” doesn’t get you out of an insult. My Grandmother gave me great advice as a child, & we’ve all heard it, but it applies well to most any situation… If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.

As far as GH goes, John Stamos posted a pic on Instagram last year, (I think in the Fall) of him “visiting” at GH. So who knows. Personally I don’t know much of Ron Moss, but I WILL be disappointed if John isn’t playing Blackie.

I did say it was my opinion. You might be the one that needs to take a “chill pill”

You’re welcome Raegan. Her comment was completely unnecessary. We are all entitled to our opinions. Suggesting that someone needs to take meds because their opinion is different from yours is just stupid, & it’s bullying.
Hope you have a great day.

Reagan, you are spot on. Enough with the constant influx of new characters & actors.

Barbara from Atlanta

Reagan is also spot on about Ronn’s acting ability. I have never seen anyone has wooden as he was through two decades of playing Ridge. You would think that, after all of those years playing the same role, Moss would have grown into the part but it never happened.

Ridge was always suppose to be the male lead of B&B. I’ve often thought that the reason B&B turned into the “Stephanie and Brooke Show” was due primarily to Ronn’s limited acting range. Ridge only had value to the show because he was so important to Stephanie and Brooke. He was not key to the show the way those ladies were.

I don’t have any idea who Moss will be playing on GH but, given twenty years of watching him on B&B, I hope for the sake of GH that it is NOT a demanding part!! Moss won’t be able to pull that off. Robert DeNiro, he ain’t!

A good payoff for them? Um, who’s tooting their own horn here? I like the GH characters we currently have, not more CBS rejects.

lol
Ronn is not going to be with GH..
He is there for the Ball, a guest appearance..
He sings very well, so my guess is he will sing and a little else..
It will be fun.. the Ball is about fun, a good time..

(((in general– why are so many so bitter and acting like spoiled kids over a guest appearance to add more fun to the Ball .. lol .. silly grumpies..)))

Ces

Good, glad that is ALL it will be. The only song I ever heard Ronn sing is “Baby Come Back” his one hit wonder 😉

Eden's Paradise

Dear Ces. Peter Beckett of Player actually wrote and sang lead on Baby Come Back, and they were not a one hit wonder band. They had 3 top 40 hits. Peter also wrote songs for many others including Kenny Rogers, Jermaine Jackson and he wrote Twist of Fate for Olivia Newton-John which went to #5 in the US.

Saw the preview of Monday’s show and Lucy said Blackie Parrish is performing.
If Ron is playing Blackie after Carlivati’s twitter war with John Stamos last year,
this will not go over very well with GH fans.

andrew hass
andrew hass

Maybe John Stamos is coming back as Blackie and Ronn Moss will be playing a character in Blackie’s band or something.Also Ron Carlivati is the head writer but Frank Valentini is the executive producer and he may have more of a say about who gets casted than Ron does.

KM

I agree, John. It will be even more annoying to GH fans who are not online and who are being led to believe they’ll be getting the still hunky John Stamos only to get the old bait and switch with an actor at least 10 years to old for the role.

I don’t think Ronn Moss fans will be especially happy either. No matter what spin RM tries to put on it he’s clearly just there in order for RC to get a childish dig in at John Stamos. Very unprofessional IMO.

janet
janet

You are right.I think it will be Ron Moss as Blackie Parish. This is another way Re Ron can get digs in.If he wanted Ron to come on sing a song, fine but to have Lucy announce Blackie Parrish, that’s a dirty trick. John Stamos is a hundred times better looking than Ron Moss,Re-Ron needs to stay away from the online media. Someone needs to tell him. better to have people think you are stupid, than to open your mouth and prove it. Oicos OR Yoplait? GMAB

well pretty obvious he will be a recast Blackie Parrish and that WILL be the straw that breaks the camels back for many GH fans…with FLKUE and then this….

So wrong..
Ronn is not being cast..
He is making a guest appearance..

I would like if were cast with a huge contract; just to upset the whiners . haaa!

afunnyguy

so you are saying he is appearing as HIMSELF?

Maybe as a grown up Blackie Parish? !?

Ronn is there for the Ball so he will perform, a guest appearance ..

I gathered from the preview at the end of today’s episode that he’ll be playing Blackie Parrish. The GH producers had wanted to get John Stamos to reprise the character at last year’s Nurses Ball for the show’s 50th anniversary but they couldn’t work out a deal, so I guess this is their “Plan B.” Could be interesting; could be a train wreck. Watch this space.

Andy G.

UPDATE: Not Blackie, but a train wreck nonetheless. Today’s episode might as well have been entitled “50 Shades Of Suck.” Hey Frank & Ron, any chance I could get that hour of my life back?

I think they gave it away today. Ronn Moss will be playing Blackie Parish. That’s why Dannon greek yogurt didn’t sponsor the Nurse’s Ball.

LOL— it took me a minute to get the joke, but once I did, made my day.

My major guess is that he’s a recast of Blackie Parrish for a longer stay on the show.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

If Ron is Blackie then they soras him by a decade…lol…i think he’d make an ok Jeff Webber and suprise Liz with his visit or as Jimmy Lee who had better ties to some of the current characters!!!

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Scott (ATWT Fan)

Wouldn’t be the first time they SORAS a character. But even then, date of births can be altered, etc.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

The weirdest soras ever on a soap…well, reversal aging of a character was on The Edge Of Night…40 something Maeve Mcquire who played 40 something Nicole Drake was replaced by 20something Jayne 4get last name but when this happen Nicole too was in her 20s. Gotta love soaps…lol

Michael (not Fairman)
Michael (not Fairman)

Jayne Bentzen–and yes, one of the strangest recasts in daytime. I remember I ended up liking JB well enough in the role (though very few actresses could successfully replace Maeve McGuire in any role–she’s just that special), but the first few months or so were a very, very strange viewing experience.

Scott (ATWT Fan)

The craziest was probably Joan Crawford replacing her daughter on The Secret Storm.

If Ronn is Blackie Parrish and it’s just for a short stint, then I think that’s rather brilliant actually. If you can’t get Stamos then why not have a little fun with it – sub in one legendary pretty-boy soap star musician for another. The icing on the cake is they got a rival greek yogurt for the sponsorship. Ron and Frank are a couple of real characters with a warped sense of humor – but I love them for it. They make the show fun to watch!

Ronn is hardly a pretty-boy.

If it’s Blackie, the pettiness of Ron C. continues to astound me. This man is showing his lack of character in abundant ways. I wish the higher powers would stop listening to him, esp. when he acts on grudges. This is bad on Frank V,. just as well.

andrew hass
andrew hass

Right now we are assuming Ronn Moss will be playing Blackie but for all we know GH was able to get John Stamos back and Ronn is playing a character in Blackie’s band.So maybe we should wait till Monday’s episode to find out.Plus now viewers might be tuning in Monday to find out who is playing Blackie.Plus Blackie hasn’t been on GH for 30 years or so.So newer viewers may not know who Blackie is or that John Stamos played him.

M Baptiste

He’ll sing “Baby Come Back.” Let him bring the “suave” to the hospital…um, in general!!!

KM

I’m starting to think you’re right. I had no idea Ronn Moss was in the band Player who did the song “Baby Come Back.” And since Spencer is dedicating the song to Emma what you’re saying does make sense.

The question is will it make any sense to GH viewers. I’m sure there are others like me who only know Ronn Moss as a soap name on some other show they never watch and won’t get the player connection either. There’s also kind of a squicky-ness to Spencer’s almost stalker behavior towards Emma. I’m not sure that’s a really appropriate song between 7 year olds.

afunnyguy

My take is if RM is Blackie..this will bother MANY longtime viewers. JS did not want a stunt/music only appearance and wanted to ACT. RC said no. I think recasting BP with RM and using a rival yogurt as a sponsor is very petty and in the biz in LA RC will take a hit to his reputation. Although Blackie was on nominally, it was pivotal to JS career and becaus ehow the character went off after being adopted by a core family, then discarded NEVER set well with die hard fans. It is nice he is mentioned occasionally. As far as age RM is younger than Luke by about 6 years so I think that is a moot point when comparing Rick Springfield, Tony Geary etc and everyone’s age. I think this is NOT a good thing and will not go over well if this is what happens. If it is not JS or he is a no show it will really leave a bad taste for the Nurses Ball in the future. (people already are NOT happy with Tracey being married and hoodwinked by FLUKE)

andrew hass
andrew hass

Yeah if Ronn Moss is playing Blackie which still hasn’t been confirmed some long time fans might be mad but newer fans might not really care and just think the show recasting a character that hasn’t been on GH for 30 some years.Also RC is the head writer and he may not have much say about which yogurt company sponsors the ball.Plus maybe Dannon Greek didn’t want product placement on GH anymore and so the show had to find another sponsor.

Patricia Dodd

I hate the Fluke storyline. And I cant believe Tracy has gotten that dumb that she cant see ”through’ him. I don’t know who Ronn Moss is but I read that he will be Blackie Parrish at the Nurses Ball. I was very disappointed that it wasn’t John Stamos

avril_lee

I’m hoping Ron is the pervy a-hole wearing Luke’s face… I was never a fan of Ridge as a character but I would love to see Ron do something villain-y.

Patricia Dodd

he will play Blackie Parish in the GH Nurses Ball, at least that’s the rumor

andrew hass

I get that people like John Stamos and want him to return to GH but the character of Blackie hasn’t been on the show for 30 some years.The show has recasted a lot of characters in the past but fans eventually accepted it.Plus we still don’t know if Ronn is playing Blackie or not.Plus i’m wondering if all the posters who are complaining right now will change their minds if GH was able to get John Stamos back as Blackie and Ronn Moss is just playing someone in his band or even Blackie’s manager.

Passions fans remember that in story, Kerr’s character Whitney was in a relationship with the character of Chad (Donn Swaby and later, Charles Divins).  Chad was believed to be Whitney’s half-brother, but later it was revealed to not be the case, and the duo ended up tying the knot.

Since Passions, Kerr has been seen on Hawaii Five-0, Westworld, and True Blood to name just a few TV appearances.

So excited to hear that Brook is coming to GH? Who do you think she will play and be involved with in story on the soap? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Lucas Gives Wiley To Michael; While Willow Learns the Devastating Truth

Friday’s episode of General Hospital, brought the highly-emotional moments viewers had been waiting for all-week long; following the year and a half reveal that Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Brad (Parry Shen) engineered a baby switch with Willow’s (Katelyn MacMullen) dead baby, Wiley being passed off as Michael (Chad Duell) and Nelle’s newborn, Jonah, and Jonah being raised by Brad and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) as Wiley.  Now with the truth out, it was time for two of the heaviest beats of the story to be played out.

When Willow comes to at the hospital with Chase (Josh Swickard) by her side, needless to say she is dazed and freaking out that Nelle took Wiley.  Chase tells her he has some things to tell her and it’s not going to be easy to hear. Willow braces herself and then Chase tells her the story of the baby switch and how her baby died a SIDS death while at Brad and Lucas’ and then how the babies were switched.

Photo: ABC

In a heartbreaking and powerful performance from Katelyn MacMullen (yes, she is our pick for “Power Performance of the Week”), Willow struggles to come to grips with the truth and starts to realize all of Brad’s machinations, as she thinks back to herself how could she do that to her son … to trust him with Brad, only to have the little infant die.  The devastation played by MacMullen, whose Willow, now must realize her baby never lived the full and happy young life she thought, was gut-wrenching.

Meanwhile, in yet another top-notch performance, William deVry (Julian) showed the pain and the need to unburden himself as Julian talks to his sister. Ava (Maura West) and spills what happened.   He goes so far to admit to Ava that he knew what Brad had done. Ava cannot believe he did not go to Sonny (Maurice Benard) right away with this Intel, but Julian just could not do this to his son, Lucas and rip the baby from his arms.  Julian says he will face-off with Sonny and not leave town, if it comes to that.   Ava says they have to come up with a way to silence Brad … before Brad gives up Julian’s part in the whole baby cover-up.

Photo: JPI

And in yet another masterful performance, we have to give it up to Chloe Lanier.  Who can play Nelle and spin stories and the tears so well, that if you did not know this pathological liar you would think she is telling the truth. When in opposing holding cells at the PCPD, Nelle lays it on about Brad so that the guard can hear them. She blames Brad for being the instigator in the baby switch and taking advantage of her – a distraught new mother, confused and dazed on the route where the baby switch happened.  It works! Brad is moved to a different cell and thinks look very grim for him.  Nelle smiles through her crocodile tears!

Photo: JPI

Then, in what we all knew had to happen, and even so, was still as heartbreaking as ever; Lucas spends his final moments with Wiley as his father in the kitchen at the Corinthos’ along with Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) and Carly (Laura Wright).  Lucas starts to tell his mother and sister, all the things Wiley needs and likes, such as having a story read to him.  All of this brings the tears as they know Lucas has to give the child back to Michael; who has been robbed of a year and half as the baby’s rightful father.

Michael tells Lucas they will work this out, so Lucas remains a constant in Wiley’s life. He also tells Sonny and Sasha (Sofia Matteson) he feels so badly for Lucas, but they tell him to be happy for this chance to have the son he grieved for.   In the end, a tear-filled Lucas hands Wiley to Michael as everyone watches on in sadness for one father … and joy for the other.  Ryan Carnes was poignant in the scenes; as was Chad Duell.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Michael Blasts Brad As The Truth About Wiley Comes Out

FINALLY! On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, Lucas (Ryan Carnes) memory is jogged just enough that he clearly remembers Brad’s (Parry Shen) shocking words before their car crash; where Brad confessed that Wiley was Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Michael’s (Chad Duell) biological son.

At the Corinthos home, Lucas stands up and announces to Michael that Wiley is actually his believed to be dead son, Jonah. Carly’s (Laura Wright) mouth drops and then she takes over getting to the root of the truth of the baby switch.

Brad is cornered and left with no choice but to fess up. He explains how Wiley died when he was no longer breathing, and how he was driving with him, when he ended up on the route where Nelle left Michael to die in the car he was driving (Michael recalls this bit of Intel in a flashback).

Then, Brad explains how Nelle appeared with her newborn baby and claimed the whole thing was engineered by Nelle …  and how he was so upset and panicked, that he went along with her plan.

Michael lets Brad have it for all of his lies and machinations, and the pain it has inflicted on so many people for over a year and half.  How on earth could he do that? Carly also lays into him.

Meanwhile, Sasha (Sofia Matteson) has urgently called Chase (Josh Swickard), who leaves “Wiley” and Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) behind, and heads to the Corinthos’ where he hears the whole sad truth about the baby switch.

With Chase gone, Nelle goes looking for “Wiley” who is with Willow, and the two get into a major throwdown catfight.  Nelle comes out the victor and goes to get her baby ready to leave town with her son.

So, what did you think of how the truth finally came out?  What did you think of Michael’s tirade on Brad? What do you think will happen next? Comment below.
