Photo: JPI

Look who is headed back to General Hospital!  Kelly Thiebaud will be reprising her role of Britt Westbourne on the ABC daytime drama series, according to Soap Opera Digest.  She is currently back filming episodes.

Kelly previous played the role of the not-so-good doctor from 2012-2014 and has made return appearances since that time.

Being the daughter of Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) and Cesar Faison )Anders Hove) and bff of Brad Cooper (Parry Shen), you never know just what trouble “The Britch” will be stirring up this time.

No airdate has been given for Thiebaud’s return, or how long of a stay this may be.

Looking forward to seeing Kelly again on GH? Comment  below.

    This is the best news ever, other than Amanda setton joining the cast. I hope these two share many scenes and storylines !!

    Yeayyyyyy!!!!!! So happy!!! My guess is Liesl is in trouble and here comes Britt for support and aid?
    Anna is truly getting on my last nerve —boy, is she reaching!!!!—-and soooo delusional.
    She is convincing herself Liesl is responsible for Peter’s crimes. Sounds like desperation to me. Wasn’t Finn somewhat wary of Anna’s behavior towards Peter? That’s why he and Violet left.
    Deep down Anna knows Peter is guilty but finds it hard to come to grips with this fact —-that the son she abandoned ( if Petey really is her son) is as demonic as his father—Call it guilt.
    We all know Liesl is a scapegoat for Anna and a gift for Peter.
    The idea of watching Anna and Peter interact is repulsive…… What have the PTB done with Anna? Where has her “detecting” intuition gone? I guess it’s understandable —-she’s viewing Peter through the eyes of a mother.
    Yet, the irony bites here, at least for me——I have this strong feeling Peter is not her son, but her twin’s, Alex.—-
    Yeah, I know, I know—-same old, same old recycled story.

      The writers dumb down Anna in the first place with PETER…ME TOO THINKS Alex is his unfortunate mummy…Peter is such a boring character that fills like a filler and adds nothing to the show!!!

        I know, Jimmy. Just as I thought, Liesl is paying the price for Peter’s crimes. Subconsciously, Anna knows this—-so, she thinks that her deed or misdeed ( having Liesl arrested) will make everything OK again with Finn. But, neither he nor Robert believes Peter is not a baddie—The truth will come out and Liesl will be exculpated.
        The actor ( Peter—He is so insignificant, I don’t even know his name or care to know) is not a very good one. Those stone-faced , sly looks he has adopted are pitiful.
        To have “debased” Anna in this manner is shameful. TPTB are making her look like a bumbling idiot.
        Aren’t you tired of Peter’s story? It’s like a bottomless pit—-no one cares and no one is interested in this character. My only interest is waiting for the character’s demise. There is no charisma at play here.

        • Jimh

          March 6, 2020 at 8:16 pm

          I rarely pay attention to Peter as he bores me…he and Maxie have zero chemistry…hope Anna is setting him up and not as stupid as she appears!!!

          • Celia

            March 7, 2020 at 6:59 pm

            WOW, Jimmy!!—that did not cross my mind. Very astute of you!! You’re right, we must give Anna’s shrewdness the benefit of the doubt.
            However, can her “mother’s heart” betray her son? I guess it takes courage—As a mother myself, I don’t know if I’d have the strength or willpower—
            Peter is very cunning . Would there be a chance for Anna to be “taken in” by him?

          • Jimh

            March 11, 2020 at 7:16 pm

            Curtis is Trina’s real father…

          • Celia

            March 14, 2020 at 3:21 am

            I agree, Jimmy—there’s so much tension between Dr. Robinson and Curtis, you can cut it with a knife—-those furtive looks they exchange is another give-away.
            As far as TJ? Who cares?
            And, poor Liesl!!!!! I know she worked side by side with the Devil in the past —-are her sins are catching up to her?—-but, she is currently my favorite—-the rest of the cast leave a lot to be desired.
            I think Anna knows Liesl is innocent—-she’s either trying to save Peter’s hide, or flesh out the truth from him—-pardon the puns.

          • Violet Lemm

            Agree, 100%

        • Satan

          March 6, 2020 at 10:23 pm

          The way they’re writing Anna makes no sense at all these days. Hell knows there’s no love lost between her & Obrecht. And Hell also knows that Obrecht IS guilty of many things, certainly. But what possible motive would she have for killing Drew Cain, whom she barely knew, or Frodd, who is one of her few friends?

          Anna Devane – super spy & former police commissioner just ain’t that dumb. Guess it’s going to be up to Spinelli to bring down Whiny Heiny.

          • Celia

            March 7, 2020 at 7:04 pm

            Yeah, Satan….as I said to Jimh, Anna is probably playing this game to entrap Peter. You guys make a lot more sense than I. Anna is a seasoned spy, who does not necessarily follow her heart.
            There needs to be a crashing/crushing climax sooner than later because I grow weary of seeing Peter. LOL.

          • Sally Bradley

            March 8, 2020 at 7:36 am

            You summed up my take on things!!! 100% agree!

          March 7, 2020 at 8:00 pm

          Celia, I had a great idea for a bloopers reel; even though they’re not bloopers, they’re still hysterical… Here goes: make a loop of all of Peter Puke’s “secret” phone calls that are supposed to sound sinister but are really just giggle inducing and play it whenever you’re having a bad day. It’s bound to lift your spirits! I haven’t seen such bad acting since…well, never.

          • Celia

            March 9, 2020 at 9:17 pm

            LOL—funny, but sad, Soaphound. Are we supposed to be anxiously afraid of Van Gogh?
            —-and, to add insult to injury, Maxie has lost that “thing”–you know? She has become as “old-maidenish” as Peter—-my ennui is overwhelming. I was such a fan of hers—-she needs a new guy.
            Anyway—on to other news— first school closing in Suffolk County due to the coronavirus—-So far my school is safe—-we are prepared to teach online
            —not much like the idea of teaching from home—-barricaded!! LOL.
            I worry for my husband the most—-
            Stay safe!!.

      • Sally Bradley

        March 8, 2020 at 7:35 am

        I agree! Anna is a world class spy and she falls for Peter’s BS??? Also, Peter and Maxie are just so blahhhhh! They just need to let Maxie find out his secrets, and get her a new man!!!

        • Celia

          March 10, 2020 at 11:05 am

          Well, Sally—-it seems that Anna has fallen for Peter’s BS, as you put it. I am vacillating here. Is she putting on an act for everyone, including Peter? And then, WHAM?? –or is my original instinct correct?…..that she is thinking with a mother’s heart? She is in denial—-if she truly believed Peter were Satan incarnate, would she jeopardize little Violet’s life by having Peter in her house? I’m in a quandary—-
          All I can say is that I am not likking Anna, as of late. Peter? He just gives me the creeps—do not like either the character nor the actor—third-rate…

      • Soaphound

        March 9, 2020 at 7:19 pm

        I never thought the day would come, Jimh, but Anna has officially drank the Peter-flavored KOOL-AID! Her “dressing down” Jason today (March 9) was embarrassing and unprofessional. What a sad day. We’re used to Maxie making a fool of herself over Peter Puke, and now she’s threatening Spinelli? If I were him, I’d take their daughter back to Portland.

        • Jimh

          March 11, 2020 at 7:16 pm

          i wasnt too big on Maxie and her story with Peter made it worse

    No doubt Britt will be back to comfort her buddy Brad. Maybe she can convince Liesl to expose Nelle’s lies regarding Jonah/Wiley. Or maybe to interact with Spencer…they were a hoot. Whatever it is, KT will be most welcome back to Port Charles. ANYTHING but more of Carly and her fan club!

    • Satan

      March 7, 2020 at 11:56 am

      Obrecht is going to have to play the Nelle card. It’s really the only information she could trade that’s useful. Her problem is that giving up Nelle for the baby swap doesn’t have any connection to Drew’s plane going down, or the attempted hit on Frodd & Dr. Maddox, so the PCPD, WSB, or whomever are still going to want somebody on the hook for those crimes.

      On the other horn, if they did their homework, they could link Nelle to Val the Bastard, and then link him to Whiny Heiny, so it’s a long way around, but you can get there if you make your way through the maze.

      • Celia

        March 11, 2020 at 9:19 am

        WOW!! Excellent thinking—just walk backwards and follow the footprints. Your horns are pretty much in sync. LOL
        The problem is, Anna will never face the truth. I wonder if she would give a deaf ear to the truth simply to save her son. If that’s the case, she will be a forceful adversary for anyone who becomes an obstacle.

    • nancy dillingham

      March 7, 2020 at 12:39 pm

      Brad is so very tiresome–should have been written out a LONG time ago. But, alas, TPTB never want to let a villain go. So worrisome.

    Oh my God-perfect timing! Love her & love Liesel-(intrigued with her & Peter), endless possibilities with Britt.

    YES!!! I love “The Britch”!!! Of course, I am skeptical since Taggert was brought back only to be killed off which didn’t make me happy. Please don’t bring her back to write her off the canvas for good. We always need a good dose of the Britch!!!

      March 7, 2020 at 12:40 pm

        That thought went through my mind too. I am hoping this is true because I sure felt robbed when he was here one day and gone the next.

    She was in love with Nikolas, yes?

    Something else which has been gnawing at me—–Sasha not interested in motherhood—-Willow loves motherhood. Where are TPTB going? Michael and Willow ? Chase and Sasha? Hmmmm. Sounds perfect????
    Ahh!! When will these yung’uns learn? LOL.

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?

Over the weekend, we caught up with Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series winner, Tamara Braun (Ex-Kim Nero, General Hospital) for another heartfelt chat on her second all-time win in the category, and Outstanding Writing Team in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, who won this award for the fifth time in his career as he shared how much he learned from his late legendary parents and Y&R and B&B co-creators: Lee Phillip Bell, who was part of the In-Memoriam tribute on the telecast, and the late Bill Bell.
