The Partridge Family mama, Shirley Jones has already taped her appearance on General Hospital, as had been previously announced.   When news circulated that Jones was making a guest stop in Port Charles, fans began speculating that Shirley would play a character perhaps in the Silas mystery storyline!

But today, according to an item from TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan, some new scoop has emerged at what the legendary Jones is doing on the 50-year-old soap opera!

Shirley will play the role of Mrs. McClain, “a lonely widow who sees something strange and disconcerting while visiting her husband’s grave.”  Mrs. McLain “comes across a suspicious gravedigger late one night at the cemetery and takes her suspicions to Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna) at the PCPD, thinking this might have something to do with the fugitive the police are looking for.”

So this begs the question, will Mrs. Partridge err McClain be the key to solving where on earth is Carly (Laura Wright) thanks to loony tunes Heather Webber (Robin Mattson)?   Jones appears on the February 5th episode of the ABC soap opera!

What do you think of the role Shirley is playing on GH?  Last time Jones visited the world of daytime soaps, she played Collen Brady on Days of our Lives.

I Can’t wait 🙂

Heather most likely buried Carly(alive) in the same gravesite where Franco put Heather! Thought S.J. would be Ninas mother…how about Erika Slezak and Jerry ver Dorn guest staring as Nina’s parents then? (commenters be sure to get flu shot…i didnt and its horrible…one min. im fine and the next im misreable…ugh!!!)

Just learned Dave Maddon…Shirleys former Partridge Family costar where he played Rueben Kincaid, the band manager….and Russell Johnson who played the Proffessor on Gilligans Island have sadly passed away…

@Jimh…feel better!

and yes; heard about both. loved their characters…another piece of TV history (and childhood) gone…

may they RIP….

Shirleys lookin good!

Laura Wright must be on vacation if she’s going to be off screen for so long! Wish that meant less of Franco, but I’m afraid it means we’ll see more of him as he’s accused of her murder. I can do without the hysterical Michael screaming and yelling and accusing!

I love how RC gives us mystery writing, at times..
In an interview, RC once said;
His reading as a young man and I’d guess to date was mystery novels..
He mentioned Agatha Christie as a favorite ..
RC’s fav TV Show is Scandal ..

It somewhat shows in his writing.. in my opinion.

Nice to see Shirley Jones, however, it means that the Carly disappearing story will continue longer than hoped for. So boring. Heather is beyond ridiculous at this point.

She needs a bigger role!

YES … but does she support Hunter King? 🙂

Funny, I want MORE Francco! Love him and Carly together!

I wish she were a regular, I love her!

Great to hear Carly will be gone a while (and hopefully Franco, too). Can’t wait to see Shirley Jones and I hope this is a recurring role.

So then she’s NOT going to be “Dusty Walker’s” mom….Wonder if she will have any future scenes with Anthony Geary? Would be the second time around for them, as he once played Laurie’s beau on the PF, and as a minister, no less!!!! (Too funny….) Speaking of the show, such sad news about Dave Madden…..R.I.P. Reuben Kincaid!!!

sign her. give her more.

So…they can’t find the money to keep Genie Francis or Tristan Rogers. But there’s a few bucks for big ol Shirl. Neat.

Well we know Carly wasn’t buried and Luke just came upon Carly in the boathouse and in preview of Monday episode, she tells Luke that Heather kidnapped her.

Another bait and switch, Re-Ron does it again. next up Donna Mills. As someone else said. We can’t keep Genie or Tristan, but we get loads of OLTL on contract no less. I find myself watching less and less. I get the feeling Re-Ron is getting even with ABC for cancelling OLTL by turning it into OLTL2 Plus call it what you will, Franco is Todd even up to the make him a hero save kids and carley be a hero everyone forgets he was a serial killer, torturer. YUCK.

Cameron Mathison Previews New Game Show ‘Beat The Bridge’ (Promo)

As previously reported, Cameron Mathison (Drew, General Hospital) will be seen doing double duty this summer when he premieres in June as the host of Game Show Network’s Beat The Bridge.

Now, while Cameron will be the host with the most, that doesn’t mean he will stop playing GH’s Drew.  In fact, Mathison taped the game show in 2023, so it will now air for the first time in 2024.

Taking to his Instagram this week, Cameron shared his enthusiasm and some new hosting snaps, sharing, “Our newest game show host reporting for duty😎 Head over to the Game Show Network YouTube channel for your first look at the show and don’t miss Beat The Bridge premiering this June! I can’t wait for you guys to see this!”

In Beat The Bridge, an enormous interactive bridge dares players to cross by stepping on the right answers to challenging trivia questions. As they play, each steps forward and puts money in their team’s bank, with bonus money for each successful crossing. Here’s the catch: the team gets to keep the money only if it can “beat the bridge” by returning one of its players back across before time expires.

Meanwhile, on GH, Drew and Nina (Cynthia Watros) recently had hate-sex. Do you think its a one-time deal? Where will Drew’s story take him next under new head writers, Patrick Mulcahey and Elizabeth Korte? Stay tuned.

Now below, check out the first promo for Beat The Bridge from the Game Show Network with you host, Cameron Mathison.  Then, let us know, will you be checking out the game this summer? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nina Confronts Ava for Sabotaging Her Relationship With Sonny and Signs the Divorce Papers

Looks like Nina (Cynthia Watros) and Ava (Maura West) are back to be each other’s sworn enemy number one. By the end of the Monday, April 22nd episode of General Hospital, the women know where they stand with each other after Nina goes in on Ava accusing her of wanting Sonny (Maurice Benard) all to herself, while her marriage has been on the rocks.

In story, at Nina’s office, Ava shows up to see Nina and says she is sorry about what happened with Sonny and that he reacted the way he did, acknowledging that is was over the top, even for Sonny. Ava says she’ll smooth things over, but Nina says she now understands how manipulative and transparent Ava really is.

Given their horrible history, Nina goes in on Ava and how she should never have trusted her. Nina wants to know how long has Ava had this agenda dating all the way back to telling Nina to turn Carly (Laura Wright) and Drew (Cameron Mathison) into the SEC. Ava says she never told her do to that, but Nina wants to know how long Ava has been playing her for a fool.


Ava says she moved in with Sonny to keep Avery safe and she wants to be on good terms with Avery’s father, Sonny. Nina thinks she likes being in Sonny’s inner circle. Ava tells Nina if she goes to him about her advising Nina to call the SEC on Carly and Drew, it won’t work.  Sonny still considers Nina a traitor and he will think she’s lying because she’s so desperate to win him back. Ava says if Nina would stop blaming everyone else that maybe Sonny would respect her.  Nina says “like he does you?” Ava says Sonny not only respects her, but he also counts on her.

From there, Ava launches into why she and Sonny understand each other, after all, Sonny is a powerful, turbulent, and sometimes violent man. She goes so far to say if Nina wanted someone to just sit by the fire with and play with their grandchildren, she’s got the wrong guy.  Ava then talks about Mike from Nixon Falls (Sonny with amnesia) and how Sonny hid the darkest parts of himself from Nina back then, whereas with Ava they are the same similar creatures, so he doesn’t have to hide anything.


Nina wants to know just what Ava wants with Sonny? What is her end game? Ava responds that they understand each other, in ways she can’t with Sonny. Nina tells Ava she can go ahead and have it all and signs Sonny’s divorce papers. Ava walks out with the documents, while Nina in tears at her desk, takes off her wedding rings and has her assistant come in so she can messenger the rings back to Sonny’s address.

The episode and these scenes featured great performances by Cynthia Watros and Maura West. You can check some of the scenes below.

Now, let us know, what is Ava’s next move? Is she going to become Mrs. Sonny Corinthos? Do you like Ava and Nina as enemies? Comment below.

Ellen Travolta Makes Another Return to General Hospital

If General Hospital’s Chase (Josh Swickard) and Brook Lynn’s (Amanda Setton) nuptials are on, you didn’t think Grandma Gloria Cerullo would miss out on the festivities, now did you?

Casting news from Soap Opera Digest reveals that Ellen Travolta is back taping scenes that will air the week of May 13th on the ABC daytime drama series.  When viewers learned that Carmine Cerullo, was also on his way back to Port Charles, now in the face and body of actor George Russo, it only made sense that Grandma Gloria would join Grandpa Cerullo. Look for them both mid-May.

As most people know, Ellen is the older sister to John Travolta. She first make appearances as Gloria back on GH in the mid-90s. Most recently, she returned to the Quartermaine mansion to meet up with daughter, Lois (Rena Sofer) and granddaughter Brook Lynn for Thanksgiving in Port Charles in 2023.  Michael Fairman TV interviewed Rena Sofer and Amanda Setton late last year where they shared what it had been liking working with Ellen, who remains very close to Sofer in real-life.

Amanda shared: “We fell in love immediately. What’s crazy is my maternal grandmother was Grandma Gloria. I had her till I was 30 and we were so close. She was really like a second mom to me. So, when I got this script and I’m reading “Grandma Gloria”, it was so bizarre. And then in meeting Ellen, she looks like my grandma – same haircut, same high cheekbones. It really did feel like I had a few days with my grandma. It was very, very special for me. Ellen is sweet, prepared, professional, talented and funny to boot. So, it was one of the best weeks I’ve had at work. I hope she comes back. My fingers are crossed.”

Now, we can’t imagine Brook Lynn and Chase’s wedding day to be smooth sailing, in fact, expect just the opposite, but could it be Grandma Gloria who is ultimately the hero or the calming voice of reason for any pre-wedding jitters? Stay tuned.

So, glad to know that Ellen Travolta will be back for Brook Lynn and Chase’s big day? Comment below.
