THIS WEEK: GH Nurses’ Ball 2020: What Will Go Down? Who Will Perform?

Courtesy/ABC

Even the coronavirus pandemic cannot stop the GH Nurses’ Ball!  The long-running ABC daytime drama series, who on any “normal’ year in our lives, would air these episodes in the spring, usually in May, is now going to air their staple event this week in August.

GH recently returned to production amid Covid-19, and now their annual songfest, and dramafest is about to be revealed for 2020.

In the promo for this week, looks like Nelle (Chloe Lanier) is on a mission that will collide with the ball, while Lucy (Lynn Herring)) as usual is in distress over the big event, and who knows what else might go down with Ava (Maura West), Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and others?

Watch the teaser from ABC below, then let us know who you are hoping to see perform at the ball? And, what you hope happens to some of your favorite couples or Port Charles residents via the comment section below.

TPTB should tune in to the Nurse’s Ball from the 90’s. Those episodes were so well-done. I miss the 80’s & 90’s in Port Charles!

Budget budget budget budget! Did I mention budget? They just don’t have the budget to do it like they used to.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed and hoping this year’s Nurses’ Ball will be exciting and well done. Good luck everyone!

Please put this Nelle saga to rest. Give the girl a spot to lay her head and plant her feet—-it’s beginning to look like a rope-pulling contest going nowhere. Make her Nina’s daughter and put this never-ending-story to bed, as well. I must be Nelle’s only fan—-plus, after all is said and done, Carly will always be the villainess to me. The same can be said for Maxie and “et tu Brute”.( in more ways than one–eg: his hair. What is that? No rhyme or reason)—-soooo boring; so fruitless; so unproductive; so superfluous. This guy truly gets under my skin.… Read more »

“Eek” , mouse run; oh, it’s just Lulu I was floored, as she’s laying in to “brother” ( step I might add ) Nicholas, about his relationship w/Spencer. she has the audacity to throw: “what is more important than restoring my trust in you” even Laura would be miffed, grandiose step aside little one… I do not wish this all on Dante I agree with you ; @Nelle. ^^^^ “… Give the girl a spot to lay her head and plant her feet” Bam ! this is it ! because of her constant “mow over” every one knows the history…… Read more »

Hey, Patrick….I won’t get into insipid Lulu–you said it all and well. I expected so much more. And, this new Brook Lynn with those witchy eyebrows and scrunched up face is perplexing—-looks either angry or pmsing. Everyone is getting on my nerves except Ava , Nelle and Nikolas. Michael is his boring self —I would die if I were married to his type. Too bad Maxie is pregnant with Brute’s baby—will the child inherit that hair? Did you notice the malignant/satisfied smile on his face when embracing Maxie? This guy is an oxymoron personified. Can’t stand him!! Why, oh why… Read more »

Hi Celia!! 🙂
To give some drama and a total emotional fan bitch fest-
Maxie should have an abortion !!_______________
and-
Lulu– well, I’ve been thinking;
to send the Lulu character to your house to keep you company 24/7
but- I luvs yah too much to hurt you so badly ;)____________
Michael needs to get a brain tumour and turn him into a livid nasty villain charater. _______________
GH needs some dark crazy bad guys!
somebody to make our skin crawl_________________
GH (all) the soaps) are being written for nursing homes to keep the people calm.. like a viewing lobotomy thing lol

Oh Lordy!!!—, how much I’ve missed your comments, SusieQ—-Lulu and I would not hit it off—-I wonder what music she listens to—Lawrence Welk? None of the younger crowd acts young—-not even the teens—- Nelle is obviously leaving—-there goes the entertainment. I really wanted her to stay, but not as a killer—-I shouldn’t have been surprised; but, I admire Chloe her absolute talent. The character never put me to sleep. Even “the crazy bad guys” have turned into pussy cats. I thought new Nik would show some umph—he is a turn-on, in my opinion, but he’s also a puppet —-I am… Read more »

I – really – like how fast they MOVED, Valentin I didn’t think he had the 50 percent shares PLUS Lucy as tiebreak? As dastardly as they can? lets hope they let Valentin , perhaps actually get to know Ned why not forge an unlikely “ally”. get Ned back in the game…. sure would beat the boy scout routine with Michael. dag PUHLEASE for the love of GOOD ACTING I don’t know, do the writers have it in them to give us a corporate intrigue espionage… outside of mob sting bite and upchuck. as for Jason being in hosp… lots… Read more »

Who’ the dead man walking? Drew?

Most likely Taggart. His “death” in the hospital was obviously suspicious. Nobody actually saw him die, so a lot of us suspected it was a fake death all along. Made fairly obvious by Jordan suddenly having this mystery burner phone with an unseen person calling her frequently. Curtis answered the phone today, so apparently Taggart didn’t think that was a safe way to communicate anymore, so he took his chances and met Jordan in person… probably assuming that most of Port Charles would be focused on the Nurses Ball, so he wouldn’t be seen. Now the only question is how… Read more »

Everything you said makes perfect sense—-Davy suspects it’s Taggart , as well. I suppose revealing his “undead” condition would hinder any investigation concerning Cyrus—–whom, may I add, is on a short leash—will be gone soon enough.
I also think Drew is somewhere out there—-perhaps in oblivion ?—until a replacement is considered —-and some kind of far-fetched plot.

It would be great if it was Drew, but its probably Trina’s father. I can’t even remember his name. That’s how much I missed him.

No, Jimmy….don’t do that. Post once in a while—-everything has changed due to the virus. And, even after a vaccine is in effect, I doubt we will ever recapture our personal norm.
Chances are, given what a germaphobe I am, I will be wearing masks for the rest of my life. LOL.
Good to see you here, my friend.

I just watched the first episode of the NURSES “Ball” telethon. In my opinion that was the worst episode I can remember. I know covid probably changed things but, it was horrible! If you can’t do something right, don’t do it at aĺl.

Agreed, Davy—I guess my expectations were too high. What a let-down!! Even with Covid, there could have been some entertainmthe cast is interacting….so, what’s the problem? Money? Maybe, today? Not over yet.
Hmmmm, Trina’s father. Never thought of him. That’s how much I missed him, too. LOL.

I am finding the Ball extremely boring but I must say that Carly and Nina looked very pretty,unlike when in character, Carly snarkey and obnoxious and Nina constantly squinting and frowning,like she’s in pain does take away from their natural looks. Speaking of looks, I recently watched an at-home video with Maura West and couldn’t believe my eyes. She looked at least ten years younger than when she’s playing Ava with all the makeup. You can tell they are trying to work the COVD into the script in this Ball thing without saying anything explicit. If I hear the words… Read more »

Breaking News

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

Courtney Hope Gets Marriage Advice From Her Y&R Co-Stars Ahead of Her Wedding to GH’s Chad Duell

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.

Please share your well-wishes to Courtney and Chad as they embark on their life together via the comment section below, and let us know what you think of the marital advice given to Hope from the citizens of Genoa City.  

You can check out the video below, and then take a look back at our interview with the duo on the red carpet back at the 46th annual Daytime Emmys Awards.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly Admits To Sonny She Was Falling Back In Love with Jason

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Carly (Laura Wright) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) finally had the “talk”.  You know, the one about what Sonny really walked in on the night he “returned from the dead” on Carly and Jason’s (Steve Burton) wedding night?  Yeah, that one.

Sonny has already had a conversation with Jason, where Jason admitted he was starting to fall again for Carly, even though they were originally getting married to show a united front for the five families.

Now coming to confront Carly, Sonny is at first greeted by her with “Mike’s” cowboy hat, where she says the man he was in Nixon Falls is a mystery to her. Sonny tells her he spoke with Jason and so Carly is compelled to admit that she and Jason would have slept together on their wedding night, if Sonny hadn’t shown up alive and in the bedroom!

Sonny’s clearly upset about his best friend and his wife getting so close and rekindling their old feelings. Carly tells Sonny that, at first, Jason and she were just going through with the wedding for show, but later, they decided to make it a real marriage, and were falling in love.

When Sonny poses the question to Carly, if she has any residual feelings for Jason, she says they have gone back to being best friends, and how much she loves Sonny.  Carly points out that Nina (Cynthia Watros) did this to them – she kept them apart for nine months – and so much has happened that it’s been difficult for them to be together as it was in the past because of it.

In the end, despite what Nina had perpetrated on them, Carly and Sonny come to an agreement that they need to rebuild their relationship.  But the cowboy hat looms as we fade to black.

Clearly, the Jason and Carly relationship and almost consummating it on their wedding night, is not sitting well with Sonny; plus Sonny seems to continue to not really tear into Nina for her deception as much as someone would if he didn’t also have feelings for her.

So, what do you hope happens next? Do you want Sonny and Carly to work things out? Do you hope Sonny sleeps with Nina? If he does, and Jason goes back to Britt (now that they are going on another adventure together to locate Liesl) is Carly ultimately the odd woman out?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
