Bad news today for fans of ABC Family’s The Lying Game, it has been cancelled by the network, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

However, one of its series stars, Tyler Christopher (Nikolas, General Hospital) took to his Twitter account to give his fans the update relating: “Sorry TLG fans. We will not be returning for a 3rd season. Thank u for your unwavering support in the past couple months.”   However, this also spells good news for GH fans, who know that recently Tyler signed on to continue with the ABC soap opera.  Might now, his stay be much, much longer?

Former ATWT and ‘Lying Game’ star, Alexandra Chando also took to Twitter to bring the news to her fan contingent stating, “To our awesome #lyinggame fans, thank you for these two amazing seasons. Unfortunately, ABC Family has decided not to bring us back for a third season. We so wanted to do 10 more for you guys! Thanks for your support and keep up with the cast to see what’s next for us!”

So what do you think of the decision to cancel The Lying Game?  Did you enjoy the series? Are you glad that Tyler is back on GH with the possibility of him staying put even longer? Weigh-in!

That sucks, they left us on a cliffhanger.

I thought the exact same thing! At least give us a final episode.

DITTO, MAYBE SOMEONE ELSE WILL PICK IT UP

I agree the network needs to give us a final episode!

They def have to give us a final episode r they kidding they cant leave it like that !

Totally excited about the possibility of Nikolas staying longer with GH.

I don’t know anything about The Lying Game because I never watched it… but I do know that Tyler Christopher is one very attractive young man… damn!

I believe that when ABC decided to cancel the The Lying Game they informed Tyler with offering him a contract for GH .. ..
I am delighted to have Tyler with GH!! 🙂

Big Alexandra Chando fan but never really could get into The Lying Game though I still wanted the show to succeed. The way ABC Family kept taking the show off the air for long periods of time, I knew they were going to cancel it…especially with the success of The Fosters.

I loved that show! Sorry to see it get cancelled! Glad that Tyler will be around GH more! Now to get Alexandra back on soaps!!!!

I am sorry for Tyler and the others… I watched all episodes faithfully and enjoyed them… Tylerv was awesome as always! At least that means we get him back for awhile… hope he gets another chance to do something else though!!!

glad tyler can stay with gh, but wish the show would of concluded, an it sucks that the twins were never revealed to the step mom damn it really sucks.

Maybe OWN could air a final episode to wrap it all up, just saying.

Hard to see any show go if you are into watching a story line or a program. That’s where I am hooked on a DVR as I can record and binge watch as time allows just to help keep viewer ratings up on fav programs.

This is why I’m beginning to hate cliffhangers. When the show gets canceled, you’re left hanging.

Still hoping for my Southland movie to wrap that up.

I’m very upset about the show being cancelled! It was my favorite ABCFAMILY show!!! Grrrrr.

abc’s lying game has to be one of the worst soap operas. Ratings for abc’s new soap opera starring denise richards though is doing very well w/c mustn’t help lying game. It’s too bad though that abc’s new soap opera is getting a lot of racist backlash. Leading char is rejecting a white female who’s throwing herself at him bec he’d rather be w/ African american female. It’s obvious that there’s still a lot of racism w/ backlash to abc’s hit soap opera and racism from cbs summer reality tv show. Yet hollywood keeps recycling storylines and shies away from tackling racism w/ their scripted night dramas and day soap operas. hollywood only tackles homophobia though but doesn’t have any of that fervor against homophobia as it does for racism issues.

I loved that show-I will miss TLG 🙁

‘General Hospital’ Reignites Scott’s Feud with Sonny Over His Past Misdeeds of His Late Daughter, Karen Wexler

In what now seems like many moons ago, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) was a small-time mobster who owned a strip club in Port Charles. He enticed a young Karen Wexler (Cari Shayne) to work as a stripper at the Paradise Lounge.

But things got worse from there! Sonny convinced Karen that stripping was her idea, and he eventually got her hooked on drugs and into his bed!

Karen’s father, Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner) has never forgotten what Sonny did Karen and for years wanted to take him down when he was the D.A. Fast-forward and on Wednesday’s February 28th episode of GH, Scott visited Karen’s gravesite on her birthday.

However, Scott had a visitor at the gravesite when John “Jagger” Cates also showed up to pay respects to his ex-wife.  This was the first time Scott laid eyes on the new incarnation of “Jagger’ on-screen as played by Adam J. Harrington.

Scott realizes he might have an ally to put the screws to Sonny after John reveals the pain and sorrow he still has over what Sonny did to Karen. Speaking to his former son-in-law about the break-up of his daughter’s marriage to him, Scott pipes up that Sonny, “walks around like he’s the mayor.” Then, Scott shouts to John, “Make him pay! Take him out!”‘

In Karen’s backstory: after getting help, Karen was reunited with “Jagger” and left Sonny. The two married and left Port Charles. Karen returned as medical student and had divorced “Jagger” in 1997, and the character landed on the General Hospital spinoff soap opera, Port Charles. Eventually, Karen was struck by a car and died. Three actresses played the role during Karen’s history: Cari Shayne, Jennifer Hammon and Marie Wilson.

Watch Scott and John talk about their vendetta against Sonny Corinthos in key scenes from GH below. Now let us know, do you think Sonny should pay for his manipulation of Karen Wexler many years ago? Comment below.

General Hospital’s Kate Mansi on Her First Scenes with Eva LaRue: “It Was So Tense and Uncomfortable, Which Was So Fun For Us.”

This week, General Hospital viewers have witnessed the arrival of Eva LaRue as Blaze’s (Jacqueline Grace Lopez) mother, Natalia. When Natalia blew into her daughter’s life, she also caught Kristina (Kate Mansi) in bed. The next moment, Mansi and LaRue played the awkwardness of the scene.

In the story, and at that point, Natalia apparently didn’t have a clue that her daughter is gay, so finding Kristina is her daughter’s room was puzzling to her.

Kate Mansi spoke to Soap Opera Digest on her introduction to soap veteran LaRue, who has appeared on All My Children as Maria Santos and won a Daytime Emmy for her role as Celeste Rosales on The Young and the Restless.

“She just came in like such a freaking pro,” shared Kate on LaRue. “She was so good. It was such a funny first introduction for our characters – it was written so well and it was so tense and uncomfortable, which was so fun for us.”

The two actresses instantly created a bond. As Mansi explained, “Right away, we were doing these funny one-liners back and forth (between scenes). Blaze said something like, ‘Kristina is more than my friend, she’s my partner,’ and then they’d call, ‘Cut!’ and Eva and I would look and each other and we’d be like, ‘She means writing partner,’ or she’d be like, ‘Yeah, yeah, she means producing partner, right?’ We were just dying laughing.”

On Wednesday’s episode of GH, Natalia learned Blaze was gay, but isn’t quite believing her, thinking she had been somehow influenced by Kristina.  In the key scenes, Blaze tells Natalia that Kristina is more than her friend. She’s her girlfriend. Blaze asks if her mother heard what she truly said, and Natalia claims she did, but then starts cleaning up the place as a method of trying to cope with what she just heard.

Things get testy when Blaze says, “Kristina and I…” Next, Natalia cuts her daughter off, firmly saying, “There is no Kristina and you!”

So, did you enjoy the tension-filled scenes between Kate Mansi and Eva LaRue? Are you liking where GH is heading with the story of a disapproving and religious mother, trying to come to terms with her daughter and her girlfriend’s sexuality? Comment below.

At the beginning of the latest episode of General Hospital star, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos) State of Mind series, he delivered some heartbreaking news with a purpose.

Maurice expressed, “We talked about her mother and having Alzheimer’s and it was an amazing interview. And then Kyle said, ‘I gotta tell you something. I have Alzheimer’s.’”

Apparently, Kyle has agreed to come on State of Mind, periodically as the effects of Alzheimer’s take a hold of her to help educate others. “We decided that she was gonna come in … she was gonna call me and tell me as she progresses,” Benard shared. “She was going to come in again so the audience could see with their eyes what Alzheimer’s does to someone.”

Benard’s guest for this current episode of State of Mind was Vernee Watson (Stella, GH), who along with Maurice, was part of the Alzheimer’s storyline on the ABC daytime drama series that saw Mike Corbin (Max Gail) eventually pass away.

As for Lee Meriwether, not only is she known for her role on AMC, but also for her roles as Catwoman in Batman: The Movie, and The Courtship of Eddie’s Father, and for the television series, Barnaby Jones, the New Andy Griffith Show and The Munsters to name only a few.

In soap operas, Meriwether was cast in The Young Marrieds years prior to her time on All My Children where she replaced Mary Fickett in the matriarchal role in the Martin family. She played the role from 1996-99, 2002-03, and 2007-11.

Meriwether’s daughter, Kyle Oldham, has been an actress and spokesperson herself through the years. She appeared on The Price is Right for over 14 years until she couldn’t anymore after going through multiple surgeries in her adult life.
