Shirley Jones To Guest Star On General Hospital!

After a tweet when out from General Hospital’s William deVry (Julian), which indicated that Shirley Jones was on her way to the ABC soap opera to begin to tape a guest appearance tomorrow, during an exchange with none other than William Shatner, a story picked up steam!

Next, Soap Opera Digest confirmed with a GH representative that it is true! Jones, best known for her role in The Partridge Family, is heading to the soap in an undislcosed role!

deVry’s tweet which brought the Jones appearance to light stated, @WilliamShatner “We have Shirley Jones coming onto General Hospital tomorrow. We r still hoping ur agent will let u join us for a few eps.”   It seems that tweet has also been deleted from Twitter at this time.

This is not Shirley Jones first foray into soaps!  Days of our Lives fans remember her as Colleen Brady! So the question is, who do you think Shirley will play when she comes to GH?   Do you think she may be a Cassadine, since Thaao Penghlis reported for work this week as Victor?  Or, do you think she might hospital patient?  Or, could she be connected to the Silas mystery?  What are your thoughts?  Let us know!

I’d love to see Jones as Julian’s mother! Maybe Mrs. Jerome is the real brains behind this and is not happy with how her son is handling things?

With William devry tweetin your guess could be right…i thought since Silas mentioned wealthy inlaws she’d be his coma wife’s mother in town talking to new cop Nathan West who is investigating Silas!

I would live this story too! Right now, I am really enjoying the Jerome family… Imagine Jones going head to head with Maura West!

I would NOT want to go up against Shirley Jones–just ask Florence Henderson!

Maybe as Sila’s wealthy mother-in-law?

Silas’s mother-in-law…

I think she’ll be Sila’s wealthy mother-in-law and they wanted William Shatner to play her husband…the parents of Nina, Silas’s wife who is in a coma?

yah ,, I think she will be connected to Ava and Silas..
she will be from their back story..

That’s what I was thinking. The in-laws Silias mentioned seemed like a role that worth bringing Shatner and Jones on the show as guest stars– nothing long term but a important piece of the puzzle involving this mystery around Silias. Also, have you notice how many people Ava has been threatening and been threaten by lately– do you see an attempt on her life in the near future? I hope they don’t kill her off– maybe she will go into a coma like Silia’s wife– just a thought–

That with Ava does sound interesting…if she ends up in a coma maybe Dee Ryan, her mother could pay a visit for a short term…i say short because i wouldnt want her in a coma for long…i like Ava!!!

Has there been a multi-colored bus (circa 1970….) seen cruising around Port Chuck???? Maybe Ma Partridge and that other fabulous mother (aka “Dr. O.”) will do a duet!!!! “I Think I Love You?” “C’mon Get Happy?”….Love Shirley Jones…welcome addition! (And if Ron C. needs any saucy suggestions for love scenes she would be an excellent resource if her recent autobiography is any indication…LOL!) P.S. What, no Reuben Kincaid????? He should play her hubby…..

We have lost SoapNet and GH & Days come on at the same time in my town which makes things difficult. I have to decide what to record in what room so I can keep up with these shows. On work days I try to watch a soap at lunch online but now you cannot watch GH online without waiting EIGHT days! What sense does this make? I watch every soap on the air every single day & work 3 days a week. I have to keep a little notebook to keep up with all this. SoapNet made things SO… Read more »

I don’t follow General Hospital , but I do watch it on special occasions. I saw Shirley Jones on Days of Our Lives and she was fantastic. So I would like to watch her on General Hospital. As soon as you get the airdates, let us know.

I have always loved Shirley Jones in any and every role…. that said, what is this about. FV and RC need to concentrate on upping the continuity and coherence of the show, not thinking up schemes to bait viewers for a day or two at a time.

Seriously? TAKE THE MONEY AND PAY FOR A STORY CONSULTANT!

Well, Ron has to think of some way to fill up the space and time until the “Sappy Great Birthing Pageant” (aka, the next “Nurses’ Ball”) commences….since it would seem that the only character he wants to make long-term plans for is the insufferable unwed mother!

I think I saw a sad, neglected Sparkle Pony in one of those SPCA commercials with Sarah Mclachan singing one of her really depressing songs (is there any other kind?). Yes, I donated.

Loved her in Elmer Gantry. She could be Noah Drake’s mother–Patrick’s grandmother. After all, she’s well adept at playing the mother of a pop star sex symbol.

yeah people know partidge family but she is also an oscar winner (for elmer gantry), and had the female lead in the films of both Carousel and The Music Man (yep, she was the one singing Till there was you as Marian the Librarian)–she would grace any stage or show she comes to

She also played the leading lady in Oklahoma. I still think TPTB should lay off the gimmicks and concentrate on their writing and editing skills for a much better payoff.

I have to agree with you Elizabeth, all these celebrities serve as bells and whistles to distract us from the fact that the writing is nonsensical, disjointed and choppy. The Carly and Franco fiasco is turning away fans in droves.

Amen!…to the concentrating on writing & editing!

So right you are Harry! Not just the Franco/Carly debacle, but those of Lucy/Scotty/Kevin, Rafe/Molly/TJ and particularly the worst of all, Felix and Sappy! There are too many days this soap doesn’t even seem like GH…it’s as if aliens decided to beam some bizarre amateur hour from a parallel universe in its timeslot! That being said, at least the stunt casting gives us something to look forward to: true professionals who know their way around a set! Can’t wait until Thaao Penghlis returns! Now just get back Scorpio, Frisco, Noah and yes, Blackie!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
