I can’t stand any of Sonny’s children, except Avery. Morgan was the WORST.

HUH? WUH?

I have hated the glorification of this character for over 20 years. Now that Shelly has retired, and Gh now has two male headwriters, we are already seeing signs that the Pratt Guza mentality of Sonny worship is back! I hate it! First of all…Michael is NOT Sonny’s child. Hanging a biological father on a meathook until he signs over custody does NOT make one a father!!! Also, will it EVER be revealed that Avery is really Morgan’s child? Carly was lurking around th paternity test and the computer…and she even had the envelope in her hands. She knew Morgan was young and manic. And she did not want Ava to get her hooks into Morgan. So, she changed the results! I cant wait for the day when that plays out! Seeing Ava triumphantly walk in and take Avery away from her sanctimonious grandparents will be worth the wait!!

❤ Sonny Corinthos and his children no matter who they fathers in Mama’s are they will always be Corinthos. Obviously the writers are doing a great job for you to write this whole page of your hate for Sonny Corinthos character portrayal he’s an outstanding actor and obviously doing a good job keep the haterism coming keeps him a paycheck thank you so much I love General Hospital

Someone on the marketing team who came up with this endeavour is SO getting fired!!

Of all the epic greatness GH has produced (Luke and Laura, the Quartermaines, Robin and Stone, BJ giving her heart to Maxie etc etc etc)….this is what they are peddling?????

Even these reruns beat the unholy shit out of anything involving Frodd, Drodd, Ava, or either of the Ninas.

Or, how about “Hi Felicia” to celebrate Wagner’s 35th anniversary with the show.

Why? GH barely even acknowledges the magnificent Port Charles years of her ex-husband, the great, iconic ‘80’s legacy character, Frisco Jones…unless, of course, it’s to bash him (and by extension, his portrayer, Jack Wagner!) Without the “both” of them, neither Felicia—nor Mrs, Wagner—would have ever existed on GH. That’s not a criticism….just an indisputable fact! I believe in giving credit where credit is due….

I’d rather do the laundry.

It’s nausesting. I can’t stand any of his kids.

I’m with you,so over Sonny & his family of more,more & more! Yuck! Theirs so many ther talented actors on the show I’d much rather watch what about the men in Laura’s life & how she’s finally found true happiness with Kevin. Great storylines with Kin Shriner (Scott),Tony Geary the early years with Luke,the fabulously sexy Stefan Cassadine affair & backstory I truly loved Laura & Stefan together. Genie has chemistry with everyone of these fabulous men,Stephen Nichols had that special connection with Genie that the fans went crazy for their love story I totally loved it & wanted Laura to end choose Stefan he was far better a choice for her then Luke I didn’t like how he changed & L&L were pretty much done after that & now f course the wonderful & adorable relationship Laura & Kevin have (swoon) Jon*Genie sparkle together whenever their in a scene together. How about her affair with David Hamilton would love to see scenes from that time & her very young love affair with Scotty. I definitely buy anything like that Genie’s had such a huge iconic & super fantastic career while working with some of the best of the best on #GH

Tori I so agree about Stefan and Laura!

Steve…me, too…lol.

Does the last installment feature an end tag “To Be Continued?” Just had to ask given Sonny’s prodigious propensity for procreation….

I see how Maurice is starting to let the gray bleed through his hair gel. Maybe he just goes gray like Victor Newman? Nothing worse than guys coloring their hair when it becomes impossible to do. Well, maybe bad toupees are worse!

@Timmm…Even on younger dark-haired guys, too much greasy styling product makes it look as though their coiffure had been coated in black shoe polish…so not attractive! They need to remember, “A little dab will do ya!” Lol…As for a bit of gray, it’s both realistic and distinguished on the 50+aged male…glad Maurice realizes this and goes with the flow!

How nice that you are doing this for us fans! I used to love the soap net marathons featuring a couple! I still wish you’d make early general hospital available by the decades ! An all gh cable channel !

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase Proposes to Brook Lynn; Kristina and Blaze Share a Kiss

Finally, many GH viewers got their wish, when on the Monday, December 4th episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Chase (Josh Swickard) got down on one knee (a few times) and proposed to Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton).

At first, Brook Lynn balked at his attempt as she believed Gloria (Ellen Travolta) and Lois (Rena Sofer) were pressuring him to do so. When she tells Chase marriage is off the table he pulls out an engagement ring. Chase reveals he was planning on proposing at Christmas, so he had the ring ready to go. A romantic Chase shares that he doesn’t want to waste one more day as he clearly knows what matters now … her!  With that, Chase gets back down on his knees and proposes again, and this time Brook Lynn says, “yes!” The two seal the deal with a kiss!

Molly (Kristen Vaganos) breaks the news to TJ (Tajh Bellow), that she now wants to accept her sister, Kristina’s (Kate Mansi) offer to be their surrogate, after all the failures they have been through in trying to find a candidate that will stick.  While TJ voices his concerns, he eventually comes around and tells Molly, “Let’s have a baby,” and now seems excited about the prospect of Kristina being the answer to their prayers. They seal the deal with a kiss!

Kristina and Blaze (Jacqueline Grace Lopez) get together with a bottle of champagne, since Blaze’s latest song just hit number one on the charts. During their conversation, Kristina asks what is Blaze’s real name? She reveals it’s “Alison”.

Later, Kristina opens up about her past and her abusive relationship with Keifer, her short marriage to Trey and then how she went away to college and fell for her professor Parker Forsythe (formerly Ashley Jones).  She then reveals Parker went back to her ex. However, Kristina’s takeaway was she realized she was clearly into women. That leaves the moment open for Blaze to make a move on Kristina and the two share a kiss.

So, three kisses moved the stories forward on this episode of GH. Which are you most happy about? Chase and Brook Lynn getting engaged? GH moving forward with a same-sex romance for Kristina and Blaze, or TJ and Molly coming together to agree to let Kristina be their surrogate? Three kisses, three different stories.  Let us know via the comment section below.

Finola Hughes posted her sentiments as well, “Yesterday was the leading ladies lunch for the Emmy’s. It’s a tradition started by the inimitable Susan Flannery. (The previous years winner throws a luncheon for the nominees). Yesterday was a very special lunch. Mishael Morgan raised the bar! The conversation was at once light hearted and deep. This was an amazing group of women, supportive, funny and caring. Thank you all for a brilliant few hours 💕 🌸 ✨”

Posting on their Instagram Stories were Michelle Stafford who gave us a little more behind the scenes of the luncheon, where Mishael also handed out a gift bag to each of the ladies, and Sharon Case who accompanied her photos with the tune “This One’s For the Girls” by Martina McBride.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom Shares Heartfelt Message to Mark His 30-Year Anniversary as Dr. Kevin Collins

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 30 years since back on December 3rd, 1993, when General Hospital viewers got the shock of their lives as the ABC soap opera introduced the psychiatrist twin brother of serial killer, Ryan Chamberlain, in the form of Dr. Kevin Collins.

For soap fans that meant we got to see even more of one of the finest actors ever to appear in the genre in Jon Lindstrom. The talented actor started on GH a year and half earlier in June of 1992 as Ryan.

Fast-forward to 2023 and Lindstrom is in the running for this year’s Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series when the 50th annual Daytime Emmy Awards are given out in less than two weeks on Friday night, December 15th on CBS. Could an Emmy on his 30th year playing Kevin and Ryan be in the cards? Stay tuned.

It has been well-documented that former GH creatives Wendy Riche (ex-EP), Claire Labine (ex-head writer) and Michelle Val Jean (ex-writer) were all instrumental in keeping Jon in Port Charles with a second role as Kevin, when he could have headed to As the World Turns at the time to play the role of Damian Grimaldi, that eventually went to Paolo Seganti.

Taking to his Instagram on Sunday to acknowledge this special milestone, Jon shared via video message, “I woke up this morning to see that today December 3rd, marks 30 years since I debuted as Dr. Kevin Collins on General Hospital. I knew that it had been a long time, but 30 years since the doppelgänger to Dr. Ryan Chamberlain was introduced. It really is remarkable. It’s been a great ride, a great run. it’s like an entire career right there. I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. It’s just been great.”

Lindstrom paid tribute to those who helped create Kevin, expressing, “I have a lot of people to thank about that, let alone people like Wendy Riche and the brass at ABC at the time … Claire Labine who was writing the show back, but Michelle Val Jean was really was the one who I had the pleasure of working with to develop and bring to life Kevin Collins. She’s still a great friend today. So, there’s been a lot of blessings around this for me, and don’t think, I don’t know it. I pretty much drop to my knees every day in gratitude. Thank you world for supporting Dr. Kevin Collins and Ryan Chamberlain, for that matter. I’ll do it as long as they’ll have me.”

Accompanying his video, Jon wrote: “So grateful today for my 30 years of ‘Kevin Collins’ (and ‘Ryan Chamberlain’) on General Hospital, and for the wonderful journey my life has been, for my friends, my the family and incredible opportunities I’ve had. Hope you all have much to be grateful for.”
