Courtesy/Ha;llmarkChannel

When Ted gets engaged to the high school mean girl and asks Jess, his childhood best friend, to plan their wedding, things get complicated. Her true feelings for Ted keep getting in the way … and that’s the set-up for tonight’s premiere of From Friend to Fiancé  which stars Jocelyn Hudon along with daytime drama favorites: Kelly Kruger (Mackenzie, Y&R) and Ryan Paevey (Ex-Nathan, General Hospital).

From Friend to Fiancé bows tonight on the Hallmark Channel beginning at 9PM ET and 8PM CT.  In the story, Paevey plays the man at the epicenter of all the attention, Ted, while Kruger takes on the role of Kimberly Kentwood.

This movie is part of Hallmark’s ‘Countdown to Summer’ promotion of stories that always centers around love and romance and how people come together, or break apart, and them come back together again.

The cable network sent this tweet out in anticipation of tonight’s premiere: “The wait is almost over! What will Jess do when she finds out her best friend Ted is marrying her sworn high school rival Kimberly ?”

Meanwhile, Kelly Kruger announced that she will be live-tweeting with fans at 9PM during the debut of the movie.

this is a STRIKE – I want Nathan more than we need Maxie and Peter

“Ryan” is still holding his audience… PLUS by this time.
who isn’t just as physically able ?!?!?!

THEE PACING of ??? prime time ; movies ; hallmark are serving “him”

NO MORE ARE we faced with the timing of the last shot before camera fades… which can be eon… HOLD HOLD HOLD – argh ! cut my head off CUT

so… that’s a lot

HEY ! even Max Gail shared with Michael Fairman in interview how it’s a “challenge” to keep that shot in continual motion

I was so relaxed… by his physical attribute .. yeah, charge

Just saw your post, and sorry we don’t agree on this one.I don’t miss Ryan Paevey one bit, because of the hunky Chase, who makes up for him 100%. His twinkley, sparkling eyes alone,”dag! he’s a stunner” Was that statement for our Peter? Sorry, just yanking your leg a little here.

Patrick Just cant help myself sometimes. I’m always afraid my humour will offend someone, but Celia says she has a crazy funny bone too, so I kind of feel I have her for backup. P.S glad you didn’t choke on your coffee!

All these Hallmark are the same stories with different titles.

yes. I like Ryan but the movie was cheesy with childish dialogue. Boring!

For some reason, i don’t miss him on Gh. I think he has been perfectly replaced by Chase (sorry, I’m blanking on the actor’s name).

Sorry to say, I’ve not missed Ryan Paevey one bit. Josh Swickard/Chase has taken over quite well. I don’t miss Dante either. Maybe it’s true, out of sight, out of mind.

Ryan is always charming, and Kelly was also–BUT they needed MUCH stronger writing. There were a lot of empty “fillers” in the movie. To bad–much potential in both actors, if they were only given stronger material. Why can’t they get stronger writers on the movies on Hallmark? A lot of the movies lack “teeth” and substance–but a lot of the other actors featured also have potential.

Nancy,
I think they just need to replace their old cookie cutter. Maybe the old one is wearing out. Ha!

Hey Violet! I think you are right! 🙂

Oops! It’s not Kruger that Ryan had the chemistry with. It’s the other actress that played his best friend–Joclyn Hudonx–that he had the chemistry with. She a cutie–and was very good–AND has much potential, like Ryan, given a better script.

Now, if I can only get her name right: everyone actress deserves as much.
It’s “Jocelyn Hudon”–my apologies to her.

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Friday’s episode of General Hospital combined with Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, saw Daytime Emmy-winner, Cynthia Watros, run through the gamut of emotions in her portrayal of the duped Nina Reeves on her wedding day and the aftermath.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin ... With Jax

Watros, who made Annie Dutton of Springfield and Guiding Light one of the most memorable soap roles of all-time, showed GH viewers why she is just THAT good!  We have always said that Cynthia can play: drama, romance, torture, cray-cray, heartbreak all rolled-into-one; especially when given the material.

In story, after part of the secret is out that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not really Nina’s bio-daughter – Nina, who has had everything she believed in fall in on her, tries to regain her strength to go back to Wyndemere to face Valentin, and move out of his house.  Once there to get her things, Nina tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that where she goes is no longer his business.

 

Valentin admits that he was looking for her daughter which caused this whole situation, but he also does not admit his part in the Sasha cover-up and that he was the one paying her to portray Nina’s daughter.  He even goes so far to insist that Sasha’s actions were all her own.  Nina still does not believe him.  After she packs her bag, and heads for the door. Valentin tells her that his life is meaningless without her. Nina basically says, “True, that” in so many words … and makes her exit.

Next, with sunglasses on, Nina returns to the workplace at Crimson where she finds Sasha with Michael (Chad Duell) and Lucy (Lynn Herring).  She calls security and tells them all to get out.  Sasha then spins a yarn, much to the chagrin of the audience, knowing that if she implicates Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Valentin, Nina would be devastated.  So, Sasha says she acted alone and faked being Nina’s daughter, when she was contacted by her attorney, and she was in cahoots with the guy … until he suddenly died!  What!?  Nina looks very suspicious… and throws back that how would Sasha know how to change three DNA test results.  Sasha had an answer for that – she had a friend who works in a lab do it.   Nina still believes she could not have done this alone without Valentin.  Then, in a heartbreaking speech, Watros as Nina shares how she has lost everything: her daughter, her marriage, hope she even had a daughter in the first place, and the list goes on.

And … let’s not forget Tuesday’s nuptials, which we gave our review and recap previously here.  It is there that Nina is first blindsided, and the betrayal, rage, and hurt displayed by Watros was all top-notch.  Here is Nina finally marrying the man she loves, whom she had to allow herself to come to trust all over again so she could be with him, even with all of the warning signs around her.  Not only does she have Lulu (Emme Rylan) spoil her nuptials with exposing the secret of Sasha, but then has to process the deception  which means to her that maybe she never had the child she so desperately wanted and believed she had all along.

The Friday cliffhanger though posed an upcoming intriguing scene.  Ava (Maura West) showed up with a bottle of booze to commiserate with Nina at Crimson (The same woman who Nina literally ripped the baby right out her and kidnapped it in a heinous revenge plot).  Will these two wronged woman team up?  Will there be hell to pay?  That is yet to be seen, but without a doubt, Cynthia Watros is Michael Fairman TV’s ‘Power Performance of the Week’.

Let us know if you agree with our pick via the comment section below, and what you thought about Cynthia’s work in these key episodes.

James Patrick Stuart Finally Gets His Photo In The Hallways at General Hospital: Watch What Happens!

Where has James Patrick Stuart’s (Valentin Cassadine) photo been all this time from the dressing room area at General Hospital?  Well, looks like we may have the answer to that question!

In a brand new video ditty posted by the folks at GH, Stuart is seen combing the hallways looking for his portrait along with the other major stars of the ABC daytime drama series .. problem is … it’s MIA! Something James takes notice off.

Then, in a time-jump (LOL), Stuart finally gets his big moment when he officially joins the ranks of the cast with his photo being unveiled right next to Maurice Benard’s (Sonny) picture.

The tweet accompanying the video relates: “Contrary to Valentin’s opinion… @japastu is having the best week ever.”   Of course, the tweet refers to Stuart’s character who has just had a disaster-filled wedding to Nina (Cynthia Watros)

Watch what happens below.
