General Hospital

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’d learn to watch on youtube

I am not trying to be a wise acre, but I would skip GH the days Carly and Franco are featured.

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!

Denise Alexander Responds to Outpouring of Fan Support on Her Return to General Hospital

Longtime fans of General Hospital were over the moon when it was revealed that Denise Alexander was on her way back to the ABC daytime drama series to reprise her role of Dr. Lesley Webber, mother of Laura, played by Genie Francis.

With Laura’s story with her new found half-brothers central to the current storyline, it’s a perfect time for Alexander to be back in Port Charles.

Tricia Sheldon, a fan of General Hospital who loves the vintage years of the show and more as she notes on her Twitter account, was able to reach Alexander, who is not on social media.  Sheldon showed her the outpouring of love the actress received, and the excitement on her on-screen imminent return.

In turn, Denise wrote a message to Sheldon to share publicly.  Part of which read   “Wow! I am breathless! What a wonderful surprise!  I am beyond grateful for all the kind and amazing and funny and sweet and caring and supportive and truly delicious messages. I have never felt so appreciated  and it brought tears and laughter reading each one.”

Alexander added, “I do not have a clue as to how to communicate on the Internet on Twitter.”  She then noted, “I would love to reach each and every person who wrote about that first day back. But I don’t even know what the rules are.  I’ve a vague sense that there is a limit to how long a message can be,but do not know how to reach anyone. Is there any way you could forward at least my thanks to everyone?”

Denise closed with,  “I love each and every message, and am full of gratitude.”

You can view the communication and Denise’s heartfelt message below.

Now let us know what you thought of Denise reaching out to all of the fans, and how grateful she is that viewers are excited to see her back on-screen via the comment section,
