TODAY: AMC’s Jennifer Bassey Makes Her General Hospital Debut!

Courtesy/ABC

So, just who is Jennifer Bassey playing when she enters the canvas on General Hospital today?

The former All My Children star, where she played Marian Colby Chandler from 1983-85, 1995-2009 and 2011, is seen in a sneak peek clip from Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series.

In the clip, Jennifer Bassey’s character wants to meet the man behind “Ask Man Landers”! Enter Nathan West (Ryan Paevey) alongside Amy Driscoll (Risa Dorken).

Now based on this storyline so far, and that of what we know of Marian Colby’s penchant for younger men, remember Tad Martin (Michael E. Knight)? Might this be Marian?

If not, it will be interesting to see just who Bassey is playing in her guest star role.   Watch the clip here.

Then, let us know what you thought of Bassey’s appearance on GH today in the comment section below!

Sounds like another version of Marian from “AMC” hot for hunk Nathan, zzzzzzzz. Was hoping rumor she was Julian and Olivia Jerome’s mother true, then she could have visited her deranged daughter at the loony bin, also getting us another return for Tonja Walker – oh, well…………………..

Boy, I hope so. After watching it, what a let down. A throw-away character in a silly story, I would have even preferred her as Marian. Then they could have at least also brought Liza (Jamie Luner) to town as well. Marcy Walker (ex-Liza) now DEEPLY into religion and not acting at all, so it’s Luner as a good option.

Heck no to Luner ever playing Liza again.

Not a very auspicious beginning; that said, it’s never what it seems, is it? So, is she Helena’s sister or not? 🙂

That said, am I the only one who is hearing “Ass Man Landers”?
It make s Nathan sound like a proctologist.
No wonder he looks so uncomfortable.

Harry…hahahhaahaha!!! I guess they could take a photo shoot of his ass…he could keep his identity a secret and voila! Everyone’s happy!

By the way, I’m thinking perhaps the photo shoot goes wrong and his face is plastered everywhere!!!

Do your thing, Miss Jennifer. You do it best!!!! My arms are wide open, in welcome. ….love you!!
Make a dent, Madame…leave your indelible mark on the shores of PC.

Her appearance, as introduced by Mr. Fairman, makes one wonder if Jennifer’s character is Nathan’s bio mom, as well as Valentin’s?
I was more inclined to believe that Valentin was Nathan’s father, but, they could be brothers, instead. I know, I know…nuts.

Oh come on, jimh….Even the formidable and talented Ms. Bassey couldn’t wax crazy enough for that role…..and besides, who would want to play the woman responsible for bringing Alexis into this world??? (Plus, she has far too much style sense to have spawned that pathetically unfashionable creature with a taste for tartwear…) Then again, if this new character is a sexually voracious one…well, you could be on to something!!!!!! LOL.

Speaking of daggers, Jimmy, Sam is the one obsessed with knives, right now. If she follows Jason, who is on his way to save the day in PR, her mental malady may return. I guess whatever is wrong with Sam, comes sporadically. Seriously, I am not trying to be facetious. Obviously, something triggers her behavior. I get the sense that she is ‘propelled’ in protecting Jason. While under her ‘spell’, she may turn on Sonny and Carly, as she will see them as a threat to Jason for dragging him to the island, especially if that other mobster is there,… Read more »

I was a long, long time fan of All My Children and it was the only I watched and I was so very disappointed and I still miss it and I’m still mad that they took it off the air! I loved all the characters, some more than others though, and I really liked Jennifer as Marion. I was so surprised and so pleased when I saw her on GH today! I started watching GH about a year later and it is still the only soap I watch. I sure hope that Jennifer will be a regular member of the… Read more »

I know some of the actors want to play different characters but I would love it if Jennifer turned out to be Marian. We need a sense that Pine Valley and Llanview are still around especially since that mess with ABC and Prospect Park is over.

Yes, and while ABC-TV has regained the rights to the characters from ALL MY CHILDREN and OLTL I just don’t feel that they have that much interest in a re-launch or even character crossovers right now – but I certainly could be wrong. I would LOVE to see the characters return in some form or another –

It is even embarrassing for GH to have that much stupid lame .

Reply here,,,i wanted her to be Alexis mom who kills Alexis with that same dagger but before that she has an affair with Julian who causes him to have a fatal heart attack while they are in bed together…she could be the soaps most infamous (and my favorite)serial killer by knocking off most of the cast…hey, if Ava can get away with murder she could to!!!-lol

Do I detect a hint of sarcasm, my Shay?….”….stellar previous attempts?”……love it. I think, you and I, can pretty much finish each other’s sentences or thought….never mind my twin. LOL. But, to be fair; I do enjoy most of the storylines on GH. I wait with expectation Valentin’s arrival. We all know it’s inevitable. He and Nina will get back together. I, also, anticipate how the writers will ‘handle’ Lulu’s absence. She is so big, she may give birth in the studio parking lot. What is in store for Julian? I like him a lot more than Sonny, albeit if… Read more »

….Never know, su. Many actors are cast in short stints and stay for years. Best example, Greg Rikaart (Y&R).
I suppose GH has a full house, and then some….yet;… maybe ” diluvial Cindy” will take care of a few on the island of PR—reducing some of the cast, in one fell swoop.

Jimmy
Guest

Jennifer Bassey’s introduction to GH might be the only good thing to come out of this barely watchable “Ask Man Landers” nonsense. I hope this story with Amy is temporary and will end once Kirsten Storms returns, I can’t stand her character and I don’t understand why the writers are building a story around her. Utilize the vets and the characters we care about, not the peripheral characters with no ties to the canvas, especially one as intolerable as Amy.

Celia
Guest
Celia

I understand, Jimmy. If it weren’t for Ryan and Jennifer, I’d FF every Amy scene. I just do not trust that bubbly-thing going on. As I said previously, she will get Nathan in some trouble. I don’t know what; but, Amy has “no good” on her mind.
I cannot wrap my head around this storyline. What is the point? Absolute nonsense.

Shay

Utter complete tosh, CeeCeeGirl! Makes one wonder if this storyline is intended as camp, comic relief because it sure is playing out that way…except it isn’t one bit funny!

AGREED! Yet, TPTB named the character Amy (as a way to what, endear her to longtime viewers?), have her living with Kristina (another annoying character, IMO), have her working at the hospital, and have given her a backstory with Dillon and Maxie (which is really annoying, what do I care if the girl made the cheerleading squad?). Also, now it appears as though she will be getting a family. STOP THE INSANITY! Focus on the veteran characters. Clean house of the bloated cast!

Celia, doesn’t it make you visualize the story meeting about this asinine tale? Someone positing a story where an annoying sub character gets to hang with the town dreamboat to push a 1950-ish advice column? If they greenlight this one, makes you wonder what they’re turning down.

Celia and Rebecca…Precocious probably wasn’t the word I should have used for Spencer, even though he does have inspired moments. As do many kids. Its just that, for me, he has always been written as the spoiled, entitled, “Prince,” who is sometimes a little over the top. Like his “acting out” since he landed in Port Charles. Many fans don’t mind, but it’s just something that has always bothered me. Also want to add Nicolas/Spencer has done a great job playing the role. I think Laura and Kevin can really help him adjust, but in retrospect maybe not such a… Read more »

I am liking the Amy/Nathan story as a bit of departure from everything else that’s going on at GH. Like more Sonny/Carly, and now Sam’s dillusions. Maybe Ask Man Landers is just a summer bridge story until Maxie comes back and they get a new writer?

If anything I find precocious Spencer just way too over the top. Can you imagine what he could be like as an adult! Go Laura and Kevin in straightening out this entitled kid.

Well, you know I like Amy…and I think her story with Nathan is cute and refreshing. If they don’t have the budget to bring back the vets…and there are times because of said budget they have to rotate the regular players to give them ample time, or maybe the actors who play Molly, TJ, Kristina are busy doing other projects, then I think this is the perfect light summer fare. Whether it turns into a more serious story or peters out remains to be seen. Perhaps Nathan’s photo shoot doesn’t go as planned and his face winds up all over… Read more »

Oh…and Rose…Spencer has always been over the top but that’s his M.O. But he’s always been spoiled on the surface, vulnerable and insecure on the inside. He’s always missed his mom and now, if we believe that Nicolas is truly dead, or at least if he isn’t but Spencer thinks he is…he’s a kid acting out. He’s got “personality” albeit a tad dramatic. He’s a great little actor. Broke my heart when he confessed to Nina he misses his dad every day. When Laura reigns him in, which is what he needs, he’s quite sweet. But, I like the precocious… Read more »

Rebecca…I really like your idea of Amy having her column in the Crimson magazine. For a soap that seems to have had a lot of downer moments recently, this is just a nice, light , probably short-arc story where the characters are acting decent for a change…at least so far. There is a part of me that deep down likes Spencer, but sometimes he can be like chalk on a blackboard for me. And I do like him with Emma. Even Nina used to to do that for me sometimes, but since she took over Crimson I’ve seen flashes that… Read more »

Haven’t watched “Suits” yet; tried “Twin Peaks” and couldn’t get through the first episode. Maybe I’ll try again…Oh! Another good show to “add to our list?” The Oprah Channel…”Queen Sugar” (Greg Vaughn is in it; not sure if he’s returning.) And…Hallmark Channel…another show I really liked is returning with Treat Williams, Diane Ladd, Jesse Metcalfe, Meghan Ory…really heartwarming show…stumbled upon it by accident when it premiered and I loved it. Quaint, picturesque town, family-oriented vibe. I think you’d like it. Not sure what you mean about the ads “selling” things with a catch. All advertising is the “hook”…I love that… Read more »

“Precocious Spencer” is acting out his pain, Rose. So….hopefully it’s not a dig? I am not really a fan of spite. LOL. We could look at Spncer’s behavior as a rebellion against the world; specifically, Valentin for killing his father, albeit, I think that entire episode on the Cassadine island will be explained away, somehow. You know what I mean, Rose; the typical soapy stuff…it wasn’t really Valentin; he was hypnotized; it was someone else wearing a Valentin mask…..whatever TPTB say, we will accept—soap norm. Spencer should not have free rein. But, he is not your typically average kid. My… Read more »

What a waste of a fine actress! Unless they are going to connect her to the canvas in another way, the role could have been filled by any day player.

Bassey’s resemblance to Constance Towers should be embraced. If not, they could have easily have her portray a widowed Marian, who took over the publishing arm of Chandler Enterprises.

Worse, I don’t think she said “dah-ling” once in the entire episode!

Celia
Guest
Celia

Exactly, Steve. This go-between-rep job is too plebeian for an actress of Ms Bassey’s caliber.
As I mentioned, I hope TPTB do tie her into a compelling storyline. They must…..a futile venture if they won’t.
As you said, we haven’t even heard her say, “Dah-ling”, yet.

Shay

Just the show’s latest (failed?) attempt at “stunt-casting,” Steve! Been there, done that too many times before…such a shame for this talented actress whose trademark sassy pizzazz could have provided such a marked contrast in character to the coolly-elegant evillainess that is our beloved Helena.

Celia

Elegan; Exqisite. Absolutely, Shay. I liken Miss Constance to Miss Jennifer—-especially when making a fashion statement; which is so very lacking in Port Charles….
….though, I must commend on Vinessa’s (Jordan, albeit not a one of my favorites) tailleur—gorgeous in its simplicity.

Shay:Oh, my!!! Elegant, exquisite, comment ( albeit, I commend that look, as well)…oopsies. I really wish I could like Amy. She’s too spastic and annoying….like a mosquito. Maybe, she is a good friend to both Nathan and Maxie? Should we give her the benefit of the doubt? dmr and Soaphound, I cannot think of a single, reasonable thing compelling this writing team to pen such a nonsensical story….no beginning and no end. It just sprouted like a weed. WHY? As I had said to Shay; will Nathan fall prey? I doubt it. ….unless she drugs him and he hallucinates ;… Read more »

Couldn’t agree more! My first choice for her was as Julian and Olivia Jerome’s Mom, so we could get some good Jerome history of why she ran away from Victor and her children and maybe pay a visit to her deranged daughter (please give us more Tonja Walker) in the loony bin. Even the 2nd rumor as Valentin’s Mom better then this silly throw-away character, as would the return of Marian even be………………….

Kelly Ripa’s First Book On the Way in 2022

Former All My Children star, now co-host of Live with Kelly and Ryan and a successful executive producer in her own right, Kelly Ripa, will add writer to her list of credits.

New this week is that Ripa is sharing a look at her real-life in a book, that will be released next spring in April of 2022.

According to the intel, the book entitled Live Wire will feature sharp, funny, and honest collection of real-life stories from Ripa, showing the many dimensions and crackling wit of the beloved daytime talk show host.

As soap fans know, Ripa has been married to Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) and the two share three children together.

The loglines for the release share: “In Live Wire, Kelly shows what really makes her tick. As a professional, as a wife, as a daughter and as a mother, she brings a hard-earned wisdom and an eye for the absurdity of life to every minute of every day. It is her relatability in all of these roles that has earned her fans worldwide and millions of followers on social media. Whether recounting how she and Mark really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment) Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.
Surprising, at times savage, a little shameless and always with humor… Live Wire shows Kelly as she really is offscreen—a very wise woman who has something to say.”

So intrigued to read Kelly’s book when it is released next year? Comment below.

All My Children Stars and Eileen Davidson On New Episode of Virtual Game Show “Soap Opera Know-It-All”

Imagine being in the hot seat and having some of your soap opera favorites trying to stump you with trivia, while trying to best your competition.  Well, that’s what four contestants faced as they battled it out in the ultimate soap trivia game, Soap Opera Know-It-All.

Later in the episode, there is a very special appearance by Eileen Davidson (Y&R, Ex-Days, Santa Barbara and B&B).  It is Eileen who reveals and asks the final question of the game to determine the eventual winner.

For this edition, host Michael Fairman welcomed longtime soap fans: Michael Cochran, Sean McKinley, and Robert Davis along with returning champion, David Bursky for this soap deep-dive competition.

Trivia questions from the following daytime and primetime soaps were put to the players during the game: All My Children, As the World Turns, Dark Shadows, General Hospital, Knots Landing, Sunset Beach, Days of our Lives, Dynasty, Edge of Night, One Life to Live, Port Charles and The Young and the Restless.

As the series moves through its now back-half of the season, the winning contestant must defeat the competition for the right to move on to the next episode to face three more challengers all in pursuit of the “Know-It-All” title with special soap-related prizes along the way.
