I so cannot wait!!!

Can’t wait either. I would so much rather see this 80’s soap icon on GH then Genie Francis, a soap icon who helped build GH. So many new characters, so little time. Who would want a show that honored its history and didn’t need stunt castings to get attention?

Let’s just hope this doesn’t turn out the same way Joan Collins and Joan Van Ark did.

Love Genie Francis too.. Wish she was coming back as well. I never mind great talent coming to my soaps. Here’s hoping we get to see Donna and Genie too!

I think she is going to be Julian’s mother

Most likely Nina’s mother, and Julian’s backer, Silas’s mother-in-law. As far as we know, Julian’s mom is dead.

I can’t wait!!! I love Donna Mills! I am thinking she may be Julia Barrett, Nina Clay, or Olivia Jerome. Either way, can’t wait!!! Imagine her and Maura West in a scene together?! Whoo Hoo!!!

I think she’s going to be Nina’s mother but obviously be connected to more people in PC.

Looking forward to seeing Donna Mills on GH. I hope she crosses paths with Leslie Charleson (Monica) as the played sisters on the 1960s soap ‘Love is a Many Splendored Thing’.

jimh(leave it to beaver)

Maybe she is the mother of both Julian and Silas’s comatose wife Nina(Julian maybe never knew his sister Olivia had a twin because his mother left his father and took only Nina with her)…and since Sam is Julians daughter that would also make Sam the niece of Silas’s wife…maybe the actress who played Olivia(4get her name) could return as her twin Nina? I didnt watch when the original Jeromes were on so i dont know if what im saying is possible…just wish Donnas former soap sister Monica from their ‘Love is a many Splendored Thing’ days was part of this!!!

Ava should trick Sonny into marrying her, saying as his wife she cant testify against him if Sonny is arrested for A.J.s shooting…then Sonny gets off when Sonny tells the court A.J. is blackmailing him for the shooting because A.J. hates him…then A.J. blurts out in court that Ava killed Connie but will anyone believe him? Maybe Sonny will?

Nina Clay!

she “must” realize how BIG she is….

I don’t know what the buzz is with other sites… but, on here.. she’s getting a lot of hits

I can’t help but stand ready to defend put upon Joan Van Ark’ Valene… LOL

she was tough…. power magnate… big sexy… and drove her way

wasn’t Gary just putty

“Welcome, Donna Mills”

WOW

She is great, so we can only hope the writing is worthy of her talent— one of reasons her character on Knots was so great is they had some of the best writers around for that show– fingers crossed that RC is up for the challenge.

Jeff

Yes, that is what makes me nervous! I really hope the writing is done well and they don’t give her some ridiculous lines. I can’t wait though, just started watching this show in February since I knew she was going to be on it and wanted to try and figure out who is who!

I absolutely LOVE IT… and can’t wait!!! Interesting that they used the stripped down set of Maxie’s apartment… could Nathan be related or a part of her entourage? I adore Donna and can’t wait… this looks like it is going to be… so good!!!

Mary SF

I was thinking that Nathan could be Nina’s brother and that why he is so determine on proving Silas tried to kill her.

I think Nathan is Silas and Nina’s son..
and Donna Mills is Nina’s mother ..

ohh no, he is too old ..

Robert

I have this weird theory that she is actually going to be Nina! Everyone assume Nina was the same age as Silas but what if the reason the family thought he was after her money was because she was in a May/December romance? I also believe if Avaliable and Julian is involved it’s because Nina found out Ava’s. identity. Donna Mills character looks to classy to have been married to Victor Jerome.

Johnny

Donna Mills is old enough to play Julian’s mother.

I love donna Mills, she is a sexy lady and a wonderful actress. Wow Donna Mills is 73 years old, she is a very classy sassy woman. I think she might be Julians mom, or sister Olivia Jerome.

MARK THE WALL!!! THROW A PARADE!!!!!!!!! THIS DAY, March 10, 2014, will go down in history!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CARLY BENSON CORINTHOS QUARTERMAINE CORINTHOS CORINTHOS JACKS whoever…actually uttered the words “Michael is AJ’s biological son!!!!!!!” I have been waiting for 16 years and three months for Snarly to say those words and she finally did! To Sonny no less…the man who kidnapped Michael as a child and has claimed to be his father ever since!!! this gives me hope for the character of Carly, and hope for the entire Cartini regime…that finally…FINALLY…they have allowed the character of Carly to utter ONE line of truth speak amidst all the craziness and stupidity!!!! Thank you…I trust the coherence and lucidity will not last, but THANK you for allowing the character of Carly to finally say the words that are TRUTH. Contrary to their fervent denials and claims to the contrary…Sonny is NOT Michael’s father. Kidnapping a child, and hanging the biological father on a meat hook until he signs away parental rights does NOT make a father. And exposing that child to constant violence that ends with said child being shot in the head, in a coma for a year, and being brutally raped in prison…yeah…those things dont qualify a greasy mobster for father of the year status either.

Most logical fit for Donna Mills would be Nina’s mother, powerful, manipulative, and controlling, as owner of the hospital where Nina was kept, along with Jason; and now maybe Robin, and who knows of whom else. The list could include Stavros, Helena, Jerry, Faison, Olivia or sister, Silas’s father, et al. But since the writers try to stay one step ahead of us it will probably be some new roll we haven’t thought of yet.

Happy to see Donna Mills!! The story line stays juicy…Go GH!

Patty

This whole Silas / Nina story line has so many wholes in it. First of all, did the writers forget that Silas’ brother Steven Clay looks identical to him. Let the pharmacists choose between Silas and a photo of Steven in a line up. No reason to kill him !! Ridiculous. Now, we all know that Nathan is Nina and Silas’ son—NOT Nina’s brother. Hopefully, this will end soon !!!!

Lana

I think Nathan is her grandson,not her son. Maybe Nina had him after she was over-dosed and in a coma. Silas said she never let him see her. Maybe Silas is even his father.

LISTEN TO THE REPLAY: Soap Nation Live! With Special Guests: Y&R’s Joshua Morrow, DWTS: Juniors & GH’s Hudson West & B&B’s Joe Lando

Photo Credits: CBS, JPI, ABC

Listen to “Soap Nation Live! October 2018” on Spreaker.

If you missed Thursday night’s broadcast of Soap Nation Live! with Michael Fairman you can now listen to the replay right here in audio player above!

This episode was given to the gents in soaps as Michael welcomed his very special guests: The Young and the Restless Joshua Morrow (Nick Newman), Dancing with the Stars: Juniors and General Hospital’s Hudson West (Jake), and The Bold and the Beautiful, and One Life to Live and Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman favorite, Joe Lando (Judge Craig McMullen).

During this fun night of chat, Joshua weighed-in on the Shick wedding that went bust, when Sharon told Nick at the altar that she knows he had sex with Phyllis.  Morrow, who will celebrate his 25th year as Nick Newman in early 2019 chimed in what the future for the stat-crossed couple may hold, and how he has enjoyed showing Nick’s dark side of late, plus he revealed one scene he felt uncomfortable with that he would not play, the ladies over the years in Nick’s life, and when asked by a listener of his memories of the late, great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor), Joshua shared some fun and poignant remembrances. He also addressed the status of Doug Davidson at the CBS daytime drama, and hopes that the writers will find a way to utilize the Y&R vet in the future.

Next, Hudson West’s joined the podcast where he gave listeners the inside scoop on what it has been like to be one of the 12 celebrity kids competing in the first-ever Dancing with the Stars: Juniors, which debuts Sunday at 8PMEST in a two-hour season premiere on ABC.  Hudson talked on how he has been learning the dance moves with his young pro dance partner and Dancing with the Stars pro mentor, how he deals with nerves before performing his dance routines and more.  General Hospital fans who know of Hudson’s Daytime Emmy-nominated performance of Jake Webber, Elizabeth and Jason’s son, got some interesting tidbits when he talked about working with Rebecca Herbst, Steve Burton and more, and how much he loves being on the show.

The final guest of the night was Joe Lando.  Prior to bringing Joe on the air, Michael played a classic clip from Megan’s death on One Life to Live from the 90’s, where Joe as Jake Harrison performed one of the saddest and most memorable scenes in soaps with his then acting partner, Jessica Tuck.  Joe then revealed when he was on Soap Nation Live that it has been over 20 years since he had heard the scene, and was still moved by it.  Lando who is now appearing as Judge McMullen on CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful teased there could be a love interest around the corner for the judge, as well as some retribution for his ruling in the custody case of Will Spencer, because of a favor called in by Ridge.  Lando also talks about his time on the hit primetime series, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman as Byron Sully, and shared more about his time on One Life to Live working with the likes of: Erika Slezak, Bob Woods, and Tuck.

Last, during out Game Show segment, a lucky caller won two VIP tickets to the Star Struck Fan Event Fall Festival in Alexandria, Virginia featuring members of the cast of Days of our Lives, as well as a Y&R goodie bag; which includes a personalizes autographed picture of Joshua Morrow, after answering correctly some Nick Newman trivia!
