A blast from the past is returning to daytime and this good be juicy!  Aaron Lustig who played sad-sack psychiatrist Dr. Tim Reid is  taping new episodes at Y&R starting today!

Lustig won a Daytime Emmy nomination for his comedic, yet evil turn back in the 90’s!  So why bring Dr. Tim back to the fold?  As previously reported, Y&R will reopen that cold-case plot where Phyllis tried to run down, Cricket (Lauralee Bell) but now according to TV Guide, Ricky (Peter Porte) will seek out Dr. Reid during his investigation of Phyllis’ twisted history in Genoa City.   This clearly spells t-r-0-u-b-l-e for Phyllis and gives some meaty story to Daytime Emmy winner, Michelle Stafford (Phyllis).

TV Guide also reveals and sets-up, “Lustig will re-emerge on air  on May 30.  So far, his run is for six episodes.  Lustig became quite a fan fave when Dr. Tim served as a court-appointed marriage counselor to nutjob Phyllis Summers and ended up in the sack with her. Phyllis made a secret videotape of their sex session, natch, and blackmailed the doc into testifying on her behalf in court. He did, but then later ‘fessed up to what he’d done and lost his career.”

So are you excited to see Aaron and Michelle lock horns as Dr. Tim and Phyllis?  Let us know!

Yes! Phyllis thinks she is so high above everyone else, but she does the same as some and worse. Like saying Daisy ripped Lucy away from her home. She did the same. It would have been better if she had left Victoria & Billy keep her but no, it was all about Phyllis and what she wanted. I hope Ricky nails her to the wall. That is all he is good for because he is a creep otherwise.

This was when Y&R was good he was brillant with her before they turned the character into a self-rightous pity party gal!

I’m so excited for Phyllis’s past deeds to resurface! The flashbacks alone are going to be worth their weight in daytime gold!! Stafford was bat shit off her rocker crazy back then and it was so entertaining to watchI can’t wait to see it all unfold! Great story idea, MAB and crew!!

I didn’t watch Y&R when Phyllis debuted so I never saw this storyline. However, ANYTHING, and I mean, ANYTHING to knock Phyllis down a peg will do just fine for me. I normally do not complain about storyline, but her scenes on Tuesday with Avery made me sick. She did the same thing to Billy and Victoria, but she seems to forget that. It’s just disgusting. I do not care what her motives are. I do not believe it was because she really wanted Daniel to be a father to Lucy. I think she just wanted to be a mother… Read more »

I was so hoping that they’d bring Aaron Lustig back as Dr. Tim Reid. It’s about time! Phyllis needs to pay the piper!

So excited for this!! When I heard they were revisiting this storyline, my first thought was of Aaron Lustig!! Having him back was the only way to do this storyline properly!!

Super excited for this; not for Phyllis to get her “comeuppance” as many others have suggested, but just to see what La Stafford can do with this really meaty material….. she is going to win the Emmy…. .she proves she’s a top performer at Y&R in every scene she’s in. Ever since her first stint on the show, she proved to the powers that be that she was a presence – indeed, a force – to be reckoned with. She never disappoints; pure genius!

Sorry, not excited in the least – given Maria Arena Bell’s track record of going back into the show’s rich history and using retroactive continuity (retcon) to create new stories, she is batting ZERO!!

For example, the “Cane/Phillip Chancellor III” story was a complete bust!! What could have been a gripping and emotional story for all involved turned out to be a snoozefest for all involved – what a waste!!

This will be another go-nowhere story thanks to the current writing regime – *YAWN*!!

(WATCH) GH’s Genie Francis Shares: “I Just Have a Hard Time Believing, In My Heart, That The Great Luke Spencer Died in an Accident”

Today’s Friday episode of General Hospital, is set to feature the funeral of the iconic Luke Spencer (Tony Geary).

While family and friends will gather on the Haunted Star to memorialize him, what been teased by the ABC daytime drama is it will also set a whole storyline in motion.

ABC7 entertainment guru, George Pennacchio, spoke to several of the GH cast, who are involved in the episode including: Luke Spencer’s long-time love, Laura played by Genie Francis.

Francis exclaimed on the whole story: “I just have a hard time believing, in my heart, that the great Luke Spencer died in an accident.  No one stays dead on a soap. I don’t know how many times I’ve been dead. Really!”

Genie added: “I feel like they’re setting the stage, really, for a wonderful comeback and I’m going to keep my fingers crossed for that.”

Luke’s longtime friend played by Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) shared: “And has it actually happened? I mean, frankly, we have a little urn about this big that’s supposed to contain him and that’s it.”

And Luke’s sister, Bobbie, played by Jackie Zeman, also weighed-in if Luke is really a-goner: “Sometimes you get these little red herrings so, as you know, George, you know, you never really know.”

Watch Pennacchio chat with the GH stars below.

Now weigh-in, do you believe Luke is very much alive and well? Held captive, or “dead” dead? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

ESPN Sports Personality and ‘General Hospital’ Guest Star, Stephen A. Smith Reveals COVID-19 Nearly Took His Life

In a harrowing account of coming down with Covid-19, ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith, who also has a recurring role on General Hospital as Brick, revealed his battle over the holidays that led to him being hospitalized because of the severity of his symptoms.

On Monday, Smith returned to his co-hosting gig on ESPN’s First Take and it was there he shared what happened during his breakthrough case of Covid.  Stephen had been fully vaccinated. Smith said that he had tested positive late in December and wound up in the hospital with pneumonia in both lungs over New Years.

Stephen A. discussed the details, expressing:  “I had 103 degree fever every night. Woke up with chills and a pool of sweat. Headaches were massive. Coughing profusely. And it got to a point where right before New Year’s Eve, I was in the hospital into New Year’s Day. That’s how I brought in the New Year.”

He went on to say about contracting Covid-19: “For me personally, it hit me differently. (Doctors) told me, had I not been vaccinated, I wouldn’t be here. That’s how bad I was. I had pneumonia in both lungs. My liver was bad, and it ravaged me to the point where even now I have to monitor my volume, get to the gym every day … I’m still not 100% with my lungs, but I’m Covid negative … I’m on the road to recovery.”

On a happier note, Smith shared how glad he was to be back at work after testing negative: “I’m ecstatic to be back. I’ve missed being at work. I’ve used more sick days in the last month than I’ve used in my 28-year career in this business.  And I can’t tell you how lucky and sincerely blessed I am to be sitting here with you guys today because two-and-a-half, three weeks ago, I didn’t know if I was gonna make it.”

So, glad to know Stephen A. is on the mend from a very scary bout with Covid? Share your thoughts in the comment section
