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!

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And … make sure to wish Nancy a ‘happy 25th’ via the comment section below.

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.
