Today marks the day for the final appearance of General Hospital’s Tamara Braun in the role of Dr. Kim Nero, according to a post on her Instagram account from the actress herself.

Braun posted: “Want to see Kim Nero one last time? Tune in today to say goodbye. Thank you to all you wonderful people for your love and support. #GH #goodbye #love #support #fans #gratitude #smile #bekind”

Tamara’s latest GH alter-ego (she had previously played Carly Corinthos) of Kim Nero, found herself pining after Franco (Roger Howarth) who now has her beloved Drew Cain’s memories transplanted into his brain, thanks to the horrifying procedure done by the late Shiloh and Dr. Cabot.  Kim has also been grieving for months the loss of her son, Oscar.

Watch to see how Kim exits Port Charles on the ABC daytime drama series.

I wish her well. She is a good actress. I often forgot she was Carly from back in the day. Kim lost her life and the character was not needed anymore. I wish they would flush out others who are useless. Oh, and speaking of, I hear FAKE Amy is coming back. WHY?

Nothing against Tamara, but I am glad to see the character of Kim leave. That whole story drove me crazy and Kim was so hard to root for even with the horrific loss of her son. That was the writer’s fault, not hers. Best wishes in your next venture, Ms. Braun.

While I like the actress very much, the character of Kim really was a mess. How long has she been talking about leaving town? Good grief, just go!

It was a nice run, but it is time to say goodby. Too bad we aren’t left with Oscar and Drew. As far as I’m concerned, we didn’t get much from this SL but angst and grief. Iam now waiting hopefully for Franco to open his eyes to Liz, with his promised words, “I’m back”.

The Drew story could have been a high drama suspenseful story..
But- the writers write soft, weak stories.
Think; what the greater writers from time past could have done with the Drew story..
Tamara is a good actor that was given a fluff script.

I totally agree with u. If Drew’s story were told on by late 80s Gh writers there would have been unimaginable intrique.

The writers were only interested in writing for Jason at Drew’s expense. They had a real opportunity to bring these two brothers to a new understanding and failed.

Glad to see this less than interesting story come to an end. ….the character should have been seeking therapy. Losing a child is the most traumatic experience any mother could possibly endure.—-the pain can engulf a grieving mother in misery—-almost bring her to the point of no return. Kim’s behavior was wantingly obsessive. Her every thought and action screamed HELP. Instead, the writers decided to turn her into a wailing, needy , delusional and mindless idiot—-I felt no pity —-none was educed. I couldn’t wait for her to shush and run along.
Great actress, for sure–but, wasted in this role.

Shay

Agreed, CeeCeeGirl! Good riddance to this loopy character and her sick, insulting storylines…as if the natural grief of losing a child gave license for the attempted rape of a person not in full control of his faculties or adulterous obsession with someone of a highly-questionable mind in the form of the Franco/Drew hybrid. Basta, basta and arrivederci, baby!

I likeher, granted I’m team Elisabeth in this storyline but I like tamara and this character. wish she was staying what’s wrong with gh getting rid of someone so talented? this is really frustrating.

It’s really too bad that they had to throw her under the bus in the name of Frodd/Drodd/ whatever you want to call this sick obsession with forcing the wreckage of OLTL (Frank & his buddy Ron’s own fault) into GH.

Tamara should have learned this lesson from her equally disastrous second run on Days… sometimes you really can’t go back.

Kim should had been obsessed with Jason since Drew once looked like him instead of this lame Franco got Drews memory story

Violet Lemm2

Jim Davis, you make a lot of sense. Never thought of it that way, but Jason wouldn’t have contributed to her obsession with Drew/Franco, who felt he had a vested interest.

jim davis
jim davis

He wouldnt…but Kim could had stalked Sam…and make threats on her life…Jason and Co. would believe its all connected to Shiloh and a disgruntal member of his cult…Jason could be injured in an attack on Sam and hospitalized where Kim drugs him with some unknown drug that causes Jason to think he is Drew and attracted to Kim!

Davy

That would have been amazing, Jim!

How did they wrap-up her storyline with Franco/Drew? Or did they? Will there be a re-cast or did her character leave town alone or with Franco/Drew?

She was my favorite Carly. Funny that she left the first time when Carly went nuts, appropriately Kim was gone nuts and Tamara is off again. Maybe next time she’ll come back as a shrink!

I got to meet Tamara earlier this spring at a gh event, and spoke to her, said I just saw her on The Rookie – wish it could have been a bit longer than a few minutes.

I hope we’ll get to keep watching her wherever she lands. I wish her well.

I thought it was — not sure the word– but just after Julian just deleted Kim Nero from his contacts, in walks another Kim – “Kimberly Andrews” (character on OLTL) and asks for a drink. Ms. Stetton is now the new Brook Lynn.

Happy 57th Anniversary Today to General Hospital

ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital turns 57 today, and remains the current longest-running soap opera on the air.  GH debuted back on April 1, 1963.

The show was created by the husband-and-wife team of Frank and Doris Hursley.  Originally, the soap was not given a name of a particular town in which the drama of the hospital was set in.  However, that all changed in the 1970’s when GH was set in Port Charles.

GH expanded from a 30-minute show to a 45-minute show on July 26, 1976 and eventually went to a full-hour where it has remained back on January 16, 1978.

Throughout its decades on the air, GH was the impetus for two spin-offs; Port Charles, (which aired from 1997-2003) and primetime’s GH: Night Shift (2007-2008),

The show went through many ups and downs over its history, but things changed dramatically for the better, when by the end of the 1970’s and facing cancellation, ABC brought in executive producer, Gloria Monty to steer the ship.  Monty created supercouple Luke and Laura played by Tony Geary and Genie Francis, and opened the show up with exciting location shoots, and from then on GH has remained a firm mainstay in the daytime line-up.

Today, Frank Valentini is the series executive producer, and the soap is co-written by the head writing team of Dan O’Connor and Chris Van Etten.

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital. Felix says give it two weeks and she will do something to mess things up.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

Scene after scene, Kelly Thiebaud has lit up the screen and put the “feisty” back onto the ABC soap opera.  As an actress, Kelly can go from the heavy drama, to the comedic, to the sexy, all with ease.

In the March 30th issue of Soap Opera Digest, Thiebaud said of her return:  “Frank Valentini reached out to me the beginning of the year and mentioned that the writers wanted to bring me back for a bit.  I said,’Of course, I will,  I would love nothing more than that!”‘ I just really connect with Britt and have a blast playing her.”

So let us know, have you been enjoying the return of Kelly as Dr. Britt Westbourne, thus far? What do you think Britt is up to? Comment below.
