No, that business was shut down due to false claims.

Yeah, janet…I hope he markets something authentic. I do wish him the best, but liquid diets are kind of ‘iffy’….not healthy and not endorsed by ‘caring’ doctors.

Steve Burton, since around 2005, has looked so bloated, though. Very similar to somebody that abuses steroids.

I doubt people will take diet advice from him.

Addison

Why does this actor, who clearly does not need more money, keep coming up with these get rich quick schemes which always seem a bit shady in a pyramid scheme kind of way? I checked out the ingredients on his Whey protein powder and they’re pretty standard. I have a jar of why protein in my pantry which sounds identical to the one he’s now pitching only the one I bought cost half as much. Moreover, his approach in substituting a protein shake for a meal is hardly a ground breaking concept as this diet strategy has been around since… Read more »

I don’t know about that, Terri. I’m a woman, and not going nuts. I have never found him attractive…..ever!!
Most women like a toned male body….not necessarily bulging muscles. Personally, it’s a turn off….too beefy.
No doctor would ever advise someone to diet on these liquid mixtures. Not healthy!!

Julia, my heart goes out to you. Please, I urge you to go talk to your doctor about this.
Steve Burton cannot help you. All he can help you do is help you part with your money.
You can do this, but I totally understand why you feel helpless.
Please consider Weight Watchers or any medically supervised diet. If you’re a member of Kaiser, they offer a medically supervised diet.
I just urge you to not fall victim to these typea of scams. They will only make your pocket book lighter, not your body.
YOU can do this!

I’m saddened by people that would go to such efforts to make rude remarks about Steve Burton on here. They must not have much else to do with their time. I love you and your efforts to better your life on and off screen, Steve. ‘Haters gonna hate.’ Right?

I agree with you. I like Steve. I am not in his fan club. I commend him for trying something different. These soaps, they are great but at ABC and NBC, they constantly play with the actors futures and us fans. Everyone needs a plan B. Go Steve!

Okay, Timmmy, granted. I am sure Steve has gone through the right channels to market his product. But, advocating it on these sites could be perilous. He has the advantage because of his celebrity status….no excuse. Case in point…..The above lady, Julia Rich. We are not talking about a few pounds here. No liquid diet in the world can help someone lose that much weight without drastic consequences. Kay is right. No one is in any position to give ‘lose weight fast’ advise. People will do drastic things when in drastic situations. This is flirting with danger. This amount of… Read more »

Oh cry me a river! Positioned at the top of the pyramid, Burton made a killing off of the aquia berry juice business not to mention the fortune he made as one of the highest paid day time actors in recent history. Check out the price of this protein powder and compare it to similar powders which are available at GNC and note the mark up disparities. This angers me because there are folks out there who are desperate for help who, unlike Mr. Burton, are living pay check to pay check (see Julia Rich’s post above ). There are… Read more »

Rude remarks, Angela? It is a fact that liquid diets with ‘bad’ ingredients kill….especially our youth. I am sure Steve is an honest man. However, be that as it may, I just caution people to consult with a doctor before going on any diet or ingesting anything.
We gave general comments here; not attacking Burton personally. Let’s hope his brand is nutritious and en par with the FDA….this is his second time around!!
As I said, I wish him the best.

Celia I could not stay silent on this enough I am tired of actors I use that word loosely taking advantage of viewers for their financial gain my gosh people get sucked into anything ! This is free advice low carb diet and exercise works wonders and I just gave it FREE

Celia
Guest
Celia

Exactly, Kay. I am not knocking Steve’s brand. I simply care about people ….big, damaging mistake for consumers to blindly go on a diet of this kind, simply because it is pushed by a celebrity, as you say. I repeat, I am not targeting Steve….speaking in general, here.
Someone very close to me is a Cardiologist…..Soooo…..

I agree with you, everyone should consult a doctor and or a nutritionist. “Magic juice or Pills” are ridiculous for sure but maybe he uses and believes in the product. He seems like a good guy who wouldnt sell something he didnt believe in?

Steve should stick to acting instead of his “get rich quick” schemes. I remember a few years ago Steve promoted diet shakes and it went bust then. He was passionate about that. Then it was the berry juice that went bust for him. He was passionate about that too. This Hollywoodschooling deal with Derk Cheetwood, IMO, is just to help out of work Derk make some money. So he’s helping him. Now it’s time to help out his brother-in-law (who probably needs the money) so make it a family investment. Steve is promoting diet and nutrition, but promotes his Jack… Read more »

I have mixed feelings about this. Burton’s not claiming to be a doctor…he’s not selling anything that isn’t already out there. He’s banking on his celebrity…just like so many other actors from Paul Newman’s sauces to cat food…Suzanne Somers…celebs who endorse others products they probably know nothing about and on and on. One has to be an informed consumer. Obviously Steve’s in great physical shape, he said he’s going for his nutrition certificate…his wife and brother-in-law have certificates…they all exercise and are role models for those who aspire to get in shape. As long as he’s not touting anything dangerous… Read more »

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly past away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a Fighter, and an Idealist, and an Advocate”; Nancy Lee Grahn Gives Masterful Performance In Special Episode

When you combine superb direction, writing, production, and acting in a special episode of a daytime drama, viewers can see and understand the thought and care that went into it.

This was more than on display during Thursday’s highly-anticipated ‘Alexis-Centric’ episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Alexis’ portrayer, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, on General Hospital.

Courtesy/ABC

In the story, symbolism was apparent and used for dramatic impact and it worked beautifully throughout, and best of all, Nancy received a script worthy of her immeasurable talents, and showed us once again why she remains one of the gold standards of our genre.  If you have not seen the episode DO NOT read any further as it contains spoilers.

It begins with an emotional Alexis looking at her mother’s watch which was still frozen from the time of her death.  While playing one of her mother’s records very loudly, she recalls Mikkos Cassadine kissing and dancing with her mom as a young Alexis (Natasha) looked on from the staircase.  When Sam asks her about it, Alexis shares that she sees the watch as sort of a representation for her own life being frozen over the last three years; which has included Alexis’ battle with booze taking over her life and her being disbarred, when being a lawyer was the way she identified herself and what gave her purpose.

Overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden, Alexis hightails it to Kevin’s office for a therapy session knowing she is going to Pentonville in the morning to serve her sentence.  She says she does not know who she is anymore.  Then, Kevin asks her how she spent her day thus far.  She flashes back to lunch with the good men in her life, Finn, Valentin, Jax and Ned.  Valentin tells Alexis she is proud of her for honing up to her mistakes.

Back at the therapy session, Alexis she was an attorney who stood for something and her life has derailed, and that she was a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate.  She knows she has to find a purpose in prison to make it through the three-year term and asks Kevin to help her find one.

Kevin wants to go back to when she was a little girl and her memories that are flooding back to her of Mikkos and her mother.  Just then, the younger version of Alexis is huddled in the corner of Kevin’s office, an image of her from the past.  Alexis tries to come to terms with her father and the choice of dangerous men and relationships that have marred her own happiness  … recalling Julian holding a knife to her throat like Mikkos did to her mother. She says he was one of the toxic men in her life, but Kevin reminds her all of the men in her life were not toxic.

Alexis starts with Ned as one who was good for her saying he was always stable, but she ruined that by recently sleeping with him and putting a wedge in his marriage to her long-time friend, Olivia.

We then flashback to earlier in the day, where Alexis ends up in an almost confrontation with Olivia.  However, Olivia tells her she misses the Alexis Davis she used to be and to get her back.

Now back with Kevin, a guilt-ridden Alexis relays she feels responsible for Neil’s death.  Kevin interjects she is not, nor what happened with Julian.  When Kevin attempts to bring up Mikkos again, Alexis rejects it and is angry that he is making her problem about daddy issues; like so many other women.  She vehemently shouts that the men in her life do not define who she is.

Then, Alexis flashes back to hurtful memories she has buried of a young Natasha witnessing Mikkos calling her mother a “greedy little bitch”.  She recalls it was on Christmas Eve and that Mikkos stopped by to give them gifts. That is when he presented her mother with the watch.  However, things took an ugly turn when he tried to leave, and she threatened to tell Helena all about her and Natasha. Next, Mikkos slapped her and that is when the watch shattered. As all this was going down, a young Natasha watched from the stairs and was horrified that she couldn’t stop her father from beating her mother and remembers how helpless she felt.

However, Alexis reveals to Kevin she thought this would be the last of Mikkos coming by, but he returned on New Year’s Eve and her mother took him back into their lives.  Alexis is beside herself that she could not protect her mother, but Kevin reassures her to remember she was just a child.

Courtesy/ABC

It is then we come to the crux of the story.  Alexis looks over in the corner and sees her younger self crying. She goes to her younger self and tells her nothing that happened was her fault, and that their father was damaged and cruel. She tells the young Natasha this shouldn’t have been her burden to carry alone, and that she deserves to be happy. Then in the moment of strength and coming full circle, Alexis introduces herself to the young Natasha, “I’m Alexis Davis, a fighter, an advocate, and an idealist … and I will take care of everything from her on out.”  In that moment, Alexis embraced herself, and forgave herself, so she could move on with her life.

Alexis then flashes back to earlier that night, as the Davis girls gather for a faux graduation ceremony so Alexis could see Molly in her cap and gown and they hug. Back in her session, Kevin remarks that Alexis has repeatedly defined herself as a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate, and reminds her she has three daughters who have those qualities, and that all she needs to be is Alexis Davis.

Then, we get a heart-warming montage of Alexis though the years in honor of Nancy’s 25th anniversary with GH.

As the episode concludes, it is the next morning, and Alexis enters Pentonville and enters her jail cell. There she meets her fellow inmate, who is studying law books to prep for her upcoming parole hearing. Alexis introduces herself as “Alexis Davis” and as someone who can help her.  We then go back to her mother’s watch which now begins ticking at Alexis’ home.  The show fades to black.

Kudos to Daytime Emmy winner, Phideaux Xavier for his outstanding direction, head writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and script writer, Scott Sickles for the thoughtful episode, EP Frank Valentini and his production crew for putting it all together, and the one and only Nancy Lee Grahn for a performance that will be remembered as a classic.
