Steve Burton Announces Separation From His Wife, Sheree

Photo: SBInstagram

Daytime favorite, Steve Burton, who will be seen in July on the Peacock streaming series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem, and his best-known for his long-running role as Jason Morgan on General Hospital, took to his Instagram story to share some very personal news.

Burton, who has been married to wife Sheree Gustin since 1999, and with whom he shares three children: daughters Makena and Brooklyn and son Jack, have officially separated.

The announcement came when Steve expressed: “I wanted to clear something up. Sheree and I are separated.  She recently announced that she is expecting her 4th child. The child is not mine. We are still co-parenting our three beautiful kids. We would appreciate privacy at this time. Much luv, Steve.”

Look for Burton to take on his original DAYS role of Harris Michaels when you see him on the Peacock streamer this summer.

Oh my this explains a lot he has looked stressed for a while! People we should learn something from this we never know what is going on in peoples lives so we should all reserve judgement on one another.

That was well said I must say I was shocked when he said this. I wish Steve all the luck in the world. But things make sense now when he said you never no what is out there doors open and close.

I wish the kids were not going thru this wish they had kept this out of the tabloids I guess it has been a slow gossip week ! Well off I go to see if anyone has anything else stupid to talk about. Just one sarcastic remark I don’t think if I was their kid they would be getting a moms day card or a Father’s Day card this year. Remember kids can be mighty cruel and their folks faces and personal business is splashed everywhere. Ugh I’m sure their children are getting harassed like crazy

Very sad news, his wife had an affair with another man. He is not the daddy. I hope Steve is ok.

Surprised, but not at the same time. Regardless… this is a 20+ year relationship ending, and I am sure there are feelings on both sides that are to be taken into account. But, for me, it does explain some of Steve Burton’s recent behaviours. Also… “Much luv?” What are we? Ten and in elementary school?

Scott-sorry but Steve’s recent behaviours are no longer all that important. Many people are more worried about what is going to happen in the next 4 days

I feel sorry for everyone involved but I don’t see the reason to advertise it on a site like this except for the shock value and Steve feeling so hurt and betrayed that he felt he needed his “publics” sympathy. Sorry, but he isn’t getting any from me. I’ve lived way too long to know it isn’t just one person’s fault and the only innocent one is the baby and the other kids who one day may read this article. Boy, you never know what kind of person someone is until you read something like this. I’ve lost all respect… Read more »

Feel really bad for them and there kids, but if she announce she was pregnant,there is nothing a wrong with Steve saying it’s not his, why pretend it’s his let it all come out in the opening. Never good to keep secrets like that.

Amy Alderman
Guest

Í feel the same way. I don’t see a problem with him telling people especially if the baby isn’t his!! I feel bad for all involved but apparently she has LOST HER DAMN MIND!! I HAVE DREAMS OF JASON. I’M SURE HE HAS HIS JERK SIDE WHO DOESN’T BUT SHE STILL SHOULD HAVE NOT CHEATED ON HIM!!

Sheri
Guest

He didn’t advertise it first, but when She did, he felt a responsibility to tell his fans the truth. Steve is a kind, generous and loving person. I don’t think he was prepared for how she announced she’s pregnant. I believe if she didn’t anounce it we wouldn’t know anything. Her Instagram regarding this was taken down immediately.

Raina
Guest

I think he just wanted a way of letting people know he is not expecting a baby. Duh!

Rose
Guest

Lighten up Violet – He probably wanted to put it all out there before people started assuming his pregnant wife’s baby was his. Remember, if his kids read this article one day, they may also read your judgmental comments too.

Julie

He probably made the announcement to avoid people crapping all over him for abandoning his wife who is pregnant with what would’ve otherwise been assumed to be his baby.

Michael (not Fairman)
Guest
Michael (not Fairman)

That would be my assumption, too, Julie. Otherwise I might very well agree with Violet. But given the context, I guess he had to say something, and since he did so without casting any real stones and generally wording it in a way that took the high road, I’m going to give him real credit (and I have not been his biggest fan in the last few years). What he is going through must be incredibly difficult, and he does have their three kids to think about.

because it’s not his kid and everyone was congratulating him. that’s shy he said something ‍♀️

Steve kept quiet until his wife posted a picture, holding her belly & announcing that she was pregnant. He kept getting flooded with congratulations. She could have held off making an announcement, at least until they were divorced.

Violet Lemm

So sorry if I offended so many of Steve’s loving fans. I have hunted and hunted for the comments made by Steve’s wife announcing the birth of her fourth child which I didnt see or knew anything about. I can’t find a thing anywhere and my comments were based on what Steve had to say, which I stand behind. There are two sides to every story and I thought he was just throwing his wife under the bus, without a word from her.

1. She’s still pregnant
2. It was an Insta post that she has since deleted.

Violet Lemm after Steve posted this she deleted her post I guess she didn’t want or need all of Steve’s many loyal and loving fans coming for her the ONLY ones I feel bad for in this whole shit show is Steve and his 3 beautiful children People need to stop coming for Steve and leave him alone He stated that he wanted to clear something up because he was being flooded with Congratulation comments from his fans Congratulating him and his wife no man would want that I don’t blame Steve whatever he did was a reaction to what… Read more »

Sorry, my excuse is just being old and not knowing or remembering things, such as having sex or how babies are born, etc. So please forgive my obvious ignorance. Also, sorry for “going after Steve”, I really wasn’t aware how most of his fans seem to know him and his personal life and how dare his wife cheat on him for any reason! I have only known him from the media, he’s an actor, not a personal friend and wouldn’t make any judgements for or against him, you silly twit!!

You have nothing to be sorry for, Violet. Jason fans are a bit rabid demonstrating the kind of enthusiasm one usually sees with the MAGA crowd.

Don’t worry, Violet. For myself, I try to stay out of these typically tawdry Hollywood breakups. Any time you offer an opinion, someone gets offended. It’s a no-win. Personally, Ms. Stause has never held the slightest interest for me, personally or professionally.

Violet Lemm

Thanks,You are right again. I know I can be critical but I comment on what I read, not on someone’s good looks. By the way who is this Ms.Stause you mentioned?

This is second comment to you. I found out who you meant by Stause when I saw the article of her and new friend.

Maybe because everyone is congratulating them!
And that hurts him having to deal with it. I think he handled it well.
He could have been nasty about it.
But he didn’t throw her under the bus.
He just wanted them to stop Congratulating him!

Frannie Crescenzo

CB64

She is the one that announced the fact that she was pregnant. They were separated. So when she posted an insta with her hands on her belly people were bashing him for separating from his pregnant wife. She never should have put that out there. He’s not an ass for saying the child is not his. He was stating facts to calm the crowd that was stirred up by the wife.

JJ – tell that to Halle Berry who gave birth to her son at age 47. Tell that to Rachel Weisz who gave birth to her daughter at age 48. Tell that to both Susan Sarandon and Iman who each gave birth at age 45. Tell that to Janet Jackson who gave birth at age 50. Tell that to all the woman who choose to give birth over the age of 40. You do not get a voice in the decision.

First and foremost, I feel bad for their children!
However, there are always TWO sides to a break-up, so I’m not just automatically blaming Sheree. Maybe Steve had an affair of his own, and that’s what precipitated her affair!
We’ll never know. Don’t just assume it’s all HER fault. I’m sure Steve is no angel!!

I finally found out the original announcement made by Steve’s wife was done on Instagram, which I don’t use, and only saw Steve’s message here. I didn’t know, nor do I care about the star’s personal lives. While most fans were sending Steve their love and sympathies, I just felt that heaping all the guilt on his wife was less than chivalrous and promoting more gossip and blame. This news would have come out eventually,but he just pulled that trigger, so eager to tell everyone he was the innocent one.

For those of you who think this is a work, you must not follow soaps and its talent that closely. Soap stars are very open and often share personal events in their life. Good or bad, they are forward. They appreciate us who continue to follow them and watch their shows. Prays for you Steve and his three children!

Over it

She is a fitness instructor and she posts her workouts often on insta. She wanted to address her changing body and has a smaller following than he does. He is the one that attracted media attention by addressing it. He did it in such a vague way, he made it seem as though she cheated. We still do not know why they separated, and frankly, we are not in any place to judge.

Celia

Best advice, Over it—It’s so easy to judge until it happens to us or someone close to us. No one is privy to another’s life and issues.
Aside—I wonder if this newest character/employee of Sonny’s will turn out to be Jason’s long, lost child no one knew existed.
Or Sonny’s—he has many spread around, what’s one more?

Satan
Guest
Satan

Well, here’s something to consider….

“Dex” is short for “Dexter”.

There was a very popular TV show about a guy named Dexter. You remember what his last name was, right??

I think this is a clue…. and this might be a recast of a character long needed in Port Charles. So yeah…. Sonny’s kid. But not a new one…..

(not saying I want a recast, but that’s what my Spidey Satan Sense is telling me)

A++ for you, Satan— In a hurry–on my way out, but I felt compelled to answer before my kids swallow me up with a barrage of demands–LOL. Of course!! — Dexter Morgan–the quasi-Robin Hood who lives a double life and no one is the wiser. I have only been watching GH for exactly eight years this month—maternity leave— So, I do not know much about its characters’ history except for the major roles; as I usually do some research. I just had a hunch, an instinct, if you will, that this new guy was, somehow, linked to either Jason or… Read more »

My only social media is MF. That’s enough for me. But I guess when you’re in the public eye for whatever reason you feel it’s an obligation to fans or a need for yourself to let it all hang out. So I can see why Steve then wanted to clear the air. My advise is to forget it. And personally I don’t want to know too much about some actors…it can interfere with the roles they play for me. Like Johnny Depp. But after reading this story I do wonder why didn’t Steve’s wife, who I know nothing about, and… Read more »

Celia
Guest
Celia

Same here—with the exception of Instagram, but I only interact with family and close friends.
Why didn’ she use birth control? Good question. You’d think a adult woman would know better. Well, Steve’s “wife” is 47—-probably menopausal—many woman are under the false impression that they are “immune” to pregnancy, considering their monthlies are not regular—few and far between. It happens all the time. Menopausal women are still fertile—it only takes one “errant” egg (LOL) to drop at any time unbeknownst to them—a most vulnerable time. I bet that’s exactly what happened, rose.

Celia
Guest
Celia

PS–Please note that my words were meant, by any means, to put women down in any way, shape or form. It is simply a common misconception for women to fall prey into believing we cannot conceive a baby during menopause. I apologize if I sounded arrogant. Not my intention.
Please pardon the typos–re: an adult, and didn’t

rose
Guest

Celia..I didn’t take anything you said as putting women down. If anything a good reminder and explanation about the circle of life. And then men play their role in conceiving, too, since it takes two. So both should be careful.

Fox Announces Primetime Soap ‘Monarch’ On Fall Schedule

You remember the tawk of the multi-generational musical drama about America’s first family of country music that was supposed to air in January?  Well, eventually due to Covid-19, the plans for its debut got scrapped from a two-night premiere set for Sunday, January 30 as a midseason replacement and kicked back to the fall.

Now, Fox has confirmed that Monarch is indeed on their fall schedule during its annual Upfront presentation on Monday.

The soapy series stars Oscar winner, Susan Sarandon as the Queen of Country Music Dottie Cantrall Roman, and her husband Albie Roman played by country singer, Trace Adkins.

In story, Dottie and Albie have created a country music dynasty. But even though the Roman name is synonymous with authenticity, the very foundation of their success is a lie. And when their reign as country royalty is put in jeopardy, heir to the crown Nicky Roman played by Anna Friel, will stop at nothing to protect her family’s legacy, while ensuring her own quest for stardom.

No word yet from Fox on what night of the week Monarch will land on the full fall schedule.  Stay tuned.

So, glad that Monarch will finally makes it debut? Does it interest you … or sound like another Nashville mixed with Dallas retread? Comment below.

The CW Cancels ‘Dynasty’; Show Will End With Current Fifth Season

As some had suspected, with ailing ratings and virtually no promotion, the CW’s reboot of Dynasty has been canceled.  The primetime soap will end at the end of its current fifth season, meaning no season six as die-hard fans and the cast and crew had hoped for.

Dynasty has been a soap on steroids, with snappy dialog, over-the-top storylines, and some wonderful performances especially from series lead, Elizabeth Gillies (Fallon).  Elizabeth tweeted upon the news of the cancellation: “SO PROUD OF MY BEAUTIFUL DYNASTY FAMILY!!”

According to Deadline, the show had been kept in production partly because of the revenue it generated with its deal with Netflix.

Photo: AdamHuberTwitter

The cast includes: Daniella Alonso as Cristal Carrington, Elaine Hendrix as Alexis Carrington Colby, Rafael de la Fuente as Sammy Jo Jones, Sam Underwood as Adam Carrington, Michael Michele as Dominique Deveraux, Robert Christopher Riley as Michael Culhane, Sam Adegoke as Jeff Colby, Maddison Brown as Kirby Anders, Adam Huber as Liam Ridley, Eliza Bennett as Amanda Carrington and Grant Show as Blake Carrington.

CW’s Dynasty was the reboot of the classic 80’s ABC primetime version, which aired from 1981-1989, with a modern twist to several of the characters and stories.

So, sad to know there will be no more Dynasty on the CW? Do you think the show could be shopped somewhere else? Comment below.
