logo64.jpgThe Soaphunks.net Adonis 2009 competition is set to get underway this coming Thursday May 14th, and this being the sixth year, the have shaken up the rules just a little. So die-hard voters who want to see their favorite hunks win the top categories, make sure to check out these excerpts from the SoapHunks.net Adonis 2009 rules and regulations and make sure to go to their site for deeper schedule and information.

From SoapHunks.net: “In order for a soap hunk to be fair game for the Adonis 2009 contest, he must appear on a U.S. soap during the contest period (May 14-September 2, 2009), including actors who have announced plans to start during the contest semifinal period and with no announced plans (by May 1, 2009) to vacate his role before the end of the contest. Competitors may be either on contract or steadily recurring. Due to the nature of this contest, plans such as these announced after the contest begins will have no effect.

2009 VOTING RULES

THE SEMIFINALS: Unlike in past contests, this year there is no pre-established set of 32 semifinalists. Instead, ALL qualifying actors from each daytime soap are eligible. The first four weeks of voting will focus on two soaps only each week (see schedule below). All eligible actors from a given soap will compete against their co-stars only. The top vote-getter from each of the eight daytime soaps will earn a spot in the finals.

WILD CARD WEEK: The hunk who polls in second place for each soap during each semifinal week will return for Wild Card Week. The public’s top vote-getter from this group will also earn a finalist’s spot. The final three spots will be hand-picked from the eight wild card contestants by this year’s three esteemed judges: Nelson Branco, superherofan of superherofannet.com and SoapHunks.net creator, Danny!

THE FINALS: You may vote once per day per person per IP address. Unlike last year, there is no ranking everyone, just one vote for your favorite contestant.  Each valid submission will carry the weight of 1,000 votes, just as in the past few years. Please do NOT vote multiple times from all of your different e-mail addresses, nor may you jump from computer to computer. You will have to attest to this before submitting any ballots, and any evidence of foul play will invalidate ALL of your attempted ballots. During the finals, the contestant with the lowest number of votes will be eliminated.”

Vinessa Antoine Reveals She And General Hospital Have Parted Ways; After Landing Primetime Series Lead

After the fantastic bit of casting news for actress Vinessa Antoine  (Jordan Ashford) over the weekend, today, via her social media accounts, Vinessa has addressed her future with General Hospital.

As viewers know, Vinessa has been cast as the drama series lead in the new CBC production of Diggstown, and it is groundbreaking making her the first black actress to star in a series on the legendary Canadian broadcasting network,   Originally it was presumed that Antoine would go recurring on GH, while she was away filming, but that is not the case as she revealed in her heartfelt message today.  She and GH have mutually parted ways.

Vinessa’s statement: “There are so many people that God put into place who are directly and indirectly responsible for my time at General Hospital.  You know who you are. I thank you. I came into this world as an artist. My job is to create and inspire. I hope that I did that a little in playing #JordanAshford.

I believe that I have taken her as far as I can.  To clarify, as negotiations for #Diggstown were underway, although I am open to stay and play in Port Charles, I was told by my reps that GeneralHospital felt that my character would be off the canvas for too long for me to continue playing her.

With that, we decided to mutually part ways.  It’s time to make room for more women of color in prominent roles on television. I’m grateful to assist in that by starting this new chapter in my journey. I hope you’ll all come along. I feel blessed. Be well. xo”

An ABC rep told Soap Opera Digest that the role of Jordan is being recast.

So what do you think of Vinessa leaving GH for good? Share your thoughts via the comment section below and let’s wish her much success!
