Tonja Walker Wraps Up Her Run On General Hospital As Olivia Jerome!

Courtesy/ABC

Never say never, esspecially if you are Tonja Walker! The actress who returned to her old stomping grounds at General Hospital decades later has apparently concluded her time in Port Charles for now reprising her role as Olivia Jerome.

Walker took to her facebook to reveal she has completed her time on the ABC daytime drama series noting she is airing through mid-March.

Tonja stated: “Last week on GH for awhile! Hope to be back. Air thru mid March. Thanks for writing Nathan Varni, Producers, writers and Soap Press for so long to help make this time possible for Me! Keep watching! It gets better all the time!!”

So will Olivia cause more havoc and then get run out of Port Charles or disappear, or get put behind bars, or go further insane? Share your thoughts on what will go down on GH as we go through February and head into March?  Do you think Tonja will get a chance to reprise the role of OJ once again? Comment below

That was fast. I was hoping she would put Sonny out of business.

Sonny should shoot her dead… She murdered his son..
but-
these love-in writers are too mushy to kill anyone..
Anyways– she said ”Hope to be back” so she won’t be killed-off..

It runs through mid March, so hopefully I will , by a miracle, get my Sonny back the real Sonny !!

(( Valentin anything and all is what is mostly keeping me from a FF freak out LOL

hey CC !
Lucifer Morningstar is gone until May 🙁
Valentin should be GH’s Mr Morningstar !!! Now, that would be awesome!

I don’t know if it’s her bad, unflattering hair cut or just the fact that I have been in a bad mood for the last 12 weeks or so, but I just don’t care about Olivia J.

Why would you say mean things about someone’s hair? Kindness is important, are you in a bad mood because someone’s saying unkind things about your looks?

For the record, Tonya Walker looks amazing and she is damn ageless.
She’s also a real power house of an actress. I really love her.
But I don’t like the hair style and as I admitted, I have been in a bad mood as of late and don’t really like anything.

Hi Addison ,
I think she was attempting to go for the Megyn Kelly look … LOL
dunno– But- you were not ‘mean’ – hairstyles can be controversial.
((doesn’t the GH makeup and hair people have their opinions, too?))

Okay, su….Sonny wants revenge ….”…she murdered his son”.
So, now you tell me… Who should shoot Sonny “dead” for murdering AJ? Monica?
Too much violence. Sonny, Ava, Julian etc. all belong in jail.
Sonny cannot have his cake and eat it, too.

I welcome you, Tonja….not only because of your superior acting; but also because you are a piece of the fabric that was OLTL.

Tonja, if you come back on and read this, have always loved you on the different soaps and think they are NUTS to get rid of you again on “GH” – I thought Olivia should have been brought back THE SECOND the Jerome’s returned to the canvas in 2013. Hopefully I will get to meet you at a fan club event someday, come to the Miami / Ft. Lauderdale area and I will be first in line.

Well that certainly was brief. Tonya didn’t even get time to sit down and take her shoes off. I think they’ll figure out who she is and then she’ll blow town. Frankly, in the short time she’s been back, her role’s been dull on one hand, since she’s behind closed doors and lame. Lame from the perspective of her being Alexis’ AA sponsor. Whoever dreamt that one up…we’ll let’s just say pitiful…look forward to this storyline being ditched.

rebecca1
Guest
rebecca1

She’s her sponsor for a reason…not because she wants to help Alexis. She’s planted herself as someone for Alexis to lean on….and to keep a choke-hold on Julian. Actually, I thought it was a brilliant maneuver!

We don’t know how her “visit” will turn out yet, Rose. Two things: The return was needed to provide an explanation for Julian’s abrupt 360 from loving husband to psycho husband. (Whether viewers want to buy it is at their own discretion. I do.) As for her visit being bland…we still have about six weeks more of Olivia Jerome as she appears thru mid March. So, let’s see if it picks up. (Personally, I’m enjoying her. I like watching her…though sometimes her expressions remind me of the parodies on SNL…she’s subtle and at the same time over the top.) Still,… Read more »

Hi, Max, With all due respect, I disagree…just a bit, LOL. For those of us who are not versed in the ‘life’ of GH, I find all these little references to the past, very interesting. Duke’s ‘tucked away’ picture, for instance, which Olivia guards sooo possessively and lovingly, piqued my interest. Don’t misunderstand….I am no fan of Duke, but the ‘untold’ story opens many doors for me….especially where Anna is concerned. I would love to walk through a few of those doors. The “sponsor” story ? Well, I took as as a ruse. There needed to be a way for… Read more »

Hi Celia, Olivia’s becoming Alexis’ AA sponsor was of course a strategic move. But, lame, I think from the perspective of, it’s pretty far-fetched from something that could really happen. Olivia, whose been tucked away, suddenly infiltrates an AA group to the point of being considered qualified to be a sponsor. I have no personal AA history, but I would think you’d be lined up as a sponsor to a new member after having been in AA for some time and after building up some credibility. All that doesn’t fit…doesn’t make sense from a perspective of realism. Good point about… Read more »

Hi Max…I looked up how long it takes to become a sponsor…could be wrong because I didn’t read it thoroughly but it appears (from my quick glance) that there are no rules as to when someone can become eligible to become a sponsor. So, it that is so, it makes sense that Olivia has known for some time that Alexis has a drinking problem and she’s been gathering info from Julian, etc. So, she put herself in a few meetings (which we can assume took place off camera) and voila…Alexis’s sponsor. As for no one recognizing her, yes, it’s kind… Read more »

LOL, Max…I get your point. I have no experience with AA either, and, of course, you are right. It is ridiculous, is it not? How does one just walk in, and become a sponsor? But, you are thinking with a full deck….these writers are not, or so it seems. They write for Kindergarteners. Reason, and compos mentis are temporarily tucked away somewhere. This is the very wrinkled and weak product—-incredulous, as you say. I have said this many times before. Some storylines do truly intrigue me–very rarely…..if you throw realism out the window. And, at the risk of sounding repetitious,… Read more »

Today her character revealed that she knows everything going on at GH, since she has hacked into the security cameras– where were these cameras when Paul and Heather were running around the hospital killing people? It is great to see Tonja, but I am beyond fed up with the writing on the show. Yes it is a soap and I can suspend disbelief to the nth degree but I don’t feel respected as a viewer in the slightest. I am sick of Nelle-the pacing of her twisted revenge plot has been pathetic-and today her hiding her stupid bra– When Carly… Read more »

Been there, done that, Shaun. Alexis is still sooo vulnerable, right now…..Julian is bad news, no matter how hard the PTB manipulate the writing. He will be the death of her. And, as we have seen, sometimes there are worse things than death when it comes to Julian….such as breathing the same air as he.
She needs someone who can ease her problems, not add to them.
She better not go back to him…LOL.

It sounds like they’re not killing her off again. I’d rather have her than WdW. Hopefully before she goes there’s some good scenes with Anna and Lucy.

Jelly has been using some of the vets very well recently. Monday’s show prominently featured characters who debuted over 20 years ago. They don’t have to be front and center all the time, but when characters like Bobbie and Felicia are more than just window dressing in a group scene, it pays off.

Oh and yes, I certainly remember Olivia trying to reform at the “end” their in ’90 with Colton, maybe Scott Thompson Baker (ex-Colton) didn’t want to come back this time around or the writers didn’t want to go THERE. Colton and Olivia in their few months together were 10 times more interesting that all that time with him and Felicia, zzzzzzzzzzzz, LOL.

Steve
Guest
Steve

Paul,
You’re so right in pointing out how dull Colton and Felicia were together. He lacked the fun of Frisco and the genuine warmth of Mac. However, I would watch Colton and Felicia any day over the second-worse near coupling in GH history — the cringeworthy attempted pairing of Luke and Felicia (that made me stop watching for a while.)

BTW – the worst near coupling was Sonny and Emily. That had me wanting to throw things at the tv.

Paul
Guest

More February stunt casting. Seriously, wouldn’t it be better to try and lure NEW viewers as opposed to the viewers who once watched, who come back to see what the old characters are up to and then Sign off the show when they see how dull the program is every day.

I’m one of those viewers that “once watched” regularly so I mistakenly tune in when they bring back historical characters. I’m duped every time, because every time those characters are sacrificed for Sonny and Carly.

She was just a plot device to redeem Julian to some extend– by having him kill Carlos and then try to kill his wife they had to do something to humanized him again– so the dragged his poor dead sister out of the closet, made her super “evil” so Julian can play the hero and “save” his family– see he ain’t a bad guy, just misunderstood– gag me with a spoon– honestly how dumb do these writers think we are– they should have NEVER had him kill Carlos in the first place–or had pull a knife on Alexis— and frankly… Read more »

Hi Mary. I said the same thing above as to WHY she was brought back. Difference is….I appreciate the way they’re turning Julian back into a good guy. Whether it was their plan all along or whether they realized they’d backed themselves into a corner, they needed to have a plausible excuse and in the world of soaps, this cuts it for me. I love Julian the character and Will he actor so I appreciate a way out for Julian. I know many want characters to pay. Julian did…and he’s still paying and keeping quiet to protect everyone. So, once… Read more »

Rebecca, Rose is talking about Y&R’s Victor Newman.
A long time ago he locked his wife’s lover in his private underground jail cell and I think, but am not sure, he locked his wife in there too. He kind of tormented the hell out of Julia in a really sadistic kind of way.
If you watched the Y&R repeat from 1983, you will see Victor and Julia cheek kissing at his wedding reception which followed.

Rebecca…Funny story while I’m convalescing in hospital. One of mr nurses saw me on MF and “confessed” to bing a Y&R fan since she was 16. She mentioned that I should look up Victor and Julia story from years ago where he was dragging her somewhere in a cage.

Ah…thanks Add and Rose. I know the character from my very few views of Y&R but I wasn’t familiar with Julia. So I kinda thought you were referring to Y&R…and then I started wracking my brains out trying to think if there was ever a Victor & Julia on GH! LOL…

Hopefully she will be popping up often to cause years and years of chaos for us all to enjoy.

I’m surprised this is wrapping so quickly, but there’s just something about the way she’s playing Olivia J. that irritates me; so I’m glad to see her go. Is it just me or does it seem like she isn’t prepared for her scenes? She’s constantly looking to the side, pausing and then saying a line or two. I’m waiting for eye contact with her scene partner for more than two seconds so it proves to me she knows what she’s supposed to say next. ~ Do they even use teleprompters any more? ~ I don’t know what’ she’s doing but… Read more »

The writers of GH never cease to disappoint me. As much as I hate to say it, it usually starts at the very top….Frank Valentini. They really don’t know what the fans want. There is so much potential with Olivia Jerome. Start with her mutual hate for Anna. I wanted to se that fight get started. I also thought Griffin would have turned out to be Olivia’s son with Duke.

Wow, fast! I would like GH to clean house and focus. been an issue for me for some time. I would like to see some of my old ABC faves again, but not everyone can come to Port Charles. It is done at the expense of solid story. There should be maybe eight forefront characters. Give them sustained almost daily presence supported by maybe a dozen more characters and some related plots for them. Right now, I find it difficult to care about anyone despite the talents and power performances.

Hello again, Celia: Celia was a Quartermaine cousin that was having an affair with Jimmy Lee Holt (Steve Bond), the late Edward’s illegitimate son. They were not related though (I don’t think, LOL). OF COURSE Monday will be a near miss of Anna and Olivia at the hospital, but at least they did another flashback of those two and are acknowledging the past again. Saw that you didn’t watch Tonja as Olivia during her first run from ’88-’90 – you missed some GOOD stuff. It all “ended” when Julian (then Jason Culp) shot her “dead” in the courtroom.

Unfortunately, GH was not in her ‘repertoire’; thus, I did not watch it either until recently, albeit, as I said, I was familiar with Alex Olanov’s avant-guard stance on OLTL. I welcomed the flashback between Olivia and Anna…..it gave me a chance to feel the rancor between these women. There is so much I… Read more »

General Hospital

GH Faves Finola Hughes, Ian Buchanan, Brooklyn Rae Silzer, Marc Anthony Samuel In New IGTV Series, ‘Enter Exit’

This week, General Hospital’s Finola Hughes (Anna) and some very good friends and acting partners debuted in a new IGTV series, directed by Hughes amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and it’s a thriller! What else would we expect from the woman who plays super spy Anna Devane on the ABC daytime drama series.

The IGTV (Instagam’s longer video application) series is called, Enter Exit, and there are 11 episodes, and the first one dropped on Monday.  It is  written by TV scribe Matt Boren, and also stars some of Port Charles’ longtime favorites that include: Ian Buchanan (Ex-Duke), Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma) and Marc Anthony Samuel (Felix).

Hughes told SOD how she was inspired to come up with the concept for the show:  “I started to think about, if you’re in lockdown, what would be a narrative where you could act in a vacuum, basically? I first started thinking about what my character would be — a retired (government) agent. And then there’s some reason that I’m retired. And I started to think about stationary shots and walking into your closeup and all those kinds of things. I left (the rest) with Matt; it was basically, ‘Whatever he writes, we’ll do.’ And I just sort of concentrated on how, feasibly, we could do it.”’

Boren, who has been an ardent viewer of GH from its hey day, shared on working off Hughes seeds of an idea to what Enter Exit is about: “In a sense, it’s a local detective thriller that starts out small — and understandably so as season one takes place during the pandemic. However, what we seed throughout these first 11 mini-episodes hints at a show that longs to be on a much larger, more global scale. We were absolutely inspired by ’80s GH — the WSB, the espionage and larger than life stories that were so thrilling, and through Devane/Scorpio/Lavery/Donnelly/Jones, so grounded. Throw that in with some Killing Eve, X-Files and (this will make sense down the line) Stranger Things, and you have a recipe that might be pages away in our cookbook.”

Now check out episode 1 below featuring Hughes and Silzer and make sure to follow Finola’s IG account for all-new installments of Enter Exit.

So, what do you think about the concept of the series? Excited to see more? Let us know via the comment section.

Days Of Our Lives

GH’s Maurice Benard and DAYS Kassie DePaiva Named “Power Performances of the Week”

Two daytime vets in two very opposing types of storylines delivered emotional and riveting work during their scenes.  First on General Hospital, Maurice Benard (Sonny) in yet another stellar knockout performance in the Alzheimer’s storyline; showed the anguish and pain of a son trying to come to terms with his father’s ultimate fate.

This week saw Sonny originally deciding to try to prolong Mike’s (Max Gail) life by having him placed on a feeding tube, but soon after seeing the fate of Yvonne, another Alzheimer’s patient, and a talk with Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Sonny changed course, and did what’s best for Mike, not for himself, and decided to let his father die with dignity and with as least suffering as possible.

We don’t think there could have been a dry eye in the house when Sonny visited Mike’s hospital bedside, and told him that it’s OK for his dad to let go, and not have to stick around for him.  Max Gail, as per usual, was also so touching in these scenes.

Benard did not overplay a beat, and for anyone who has had a parent die of this dreadful disease, you could relate to what Sonny went through in the more than capable hands of this two-time Daytime Emmy winner.

Over on Days of our Lives, what a return for Kassie DePaiva in her role as Eve Donovan! This time, she has come back unhinged and at an emotional rock bottom, so much so that she had abducted Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson), had him taken to an abandoned warehouse, strapped him up, tortured him with an assist from Dr. Rolf’s protege, Vincent (Michael Teh), and came up with this twisted plot to have Ben turn back into the “necktie serial killer” and kill his bride, Ciara (Victoria Konefal).

Why, you say? Well, because Eve’s daughter, Paige was one of Ben’s victims and it has been eating Eve alive this whole time. She is a mama grieving for her daughter so deeply that she can’t understand why Paige is dead and he is left on earth to roam around free and find love and happiness… and we find out she was gutted when Ben got a last-minute reprieve when he was recently sentenced to death by lethal injection.

DePaiva played this arc of Eve’s story as a soapalicious villain, but when you really deconstruct it, Eve is just in so much pain… and all of that came through even in the darkest of scenes.  And … there is yet more to come!

Kudos to Maurice and Kassie for being named Michael Fairman TV’s “Power Performances of the Week”.

So, do you agree with our picks for Maurice and Kassie? What did you think of their work? Comment below.

OLTL Alum Christopher Cousins Appears on General Hospital as Dante’s Doctor

On Thursday, the very shrewd fans of daytime drama, noticed a very familiar face on General Hospital in scenes with Dominic Zamprogna in Dante’s return storyline.

Playing Dante’s Doctor turned out to be Christopher Cousins, most soap-famous for his role as Cain Rogan on One Life to Live from 1991 to 1994 and later reprising the role of the conman back in 2008.  Cain was romantically involved with Tina Lord (Andrea Evans) while in story in Llanview.

Cousins also made appearance on two other daytime drama: as Greg Houston on Another World in 1986 and as Colin Crowley on As the World Turns in 1990.  More recently Christopher has been appearing in numerous primetime TV shows and films.

So, do you hope Christopher sticks around on General Hospital?  Do you think it’s just a guest stint for him to serve Dante’s story? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
