TV Guide's HOT LIST: GH's Ava and Morgan HOT BED & The Stafford Project HOT MESS!



TV Guide Magazine unveiled their annual Hot List issue Monday night at an exclusive  party at The Emerson Theater in Los Angeles.

And today, the issue hit the newsstands which contains the editors picks in an issue that celebrates the year’s hottest television shows, stars and trends with their special mentions and categories in TVG’s list!

So who’s  smoking hot?  For starters, Michelle Stafford’s The Stafford Project  is hot!  It was the only web series picked on TVG’s list of lists! The Stafford Project gets the honor of Hot Mess!  TVG’s Michael Logan points out that Stafford, “Plays Michelle, soap star, loser in love, who inadvertently dates an assassin, gets upstaged on the job, and fends off her horny gynecologist!”

And leave it to General Hospital’s mob moll Ava Jerome, and her inability to resist the much younger Morgan Corinthos, who happens to be the son of her family’s arch enemy Sonny Corinthos, to make the hot list.  The  sizzling chemistry between Daytime Emmy winner, Maura West and GH newcomer Bryan Craig made TVG’s list under Hot Bed!  TVG’s Michael Logan relates on the choice  on Bryan Craig and Ava and Morgan’s trysts:  “He is a marvelous muddle of puppy awkwardness and testy testosterone.  It’s the scandal of Port Charles, but this was no one-night mistake.”

So do you agree with TV Guide’s choices of Ava and Michael as Hot Bed, and The Stafford Project as Hot Mess for inclusion on their 2013 Hot List?  Let us know!

I love Ava and Morgan!!!
They are very interesting and intriguing!!

I give praise to any woman that has the confidence to be a cougar!!

Hey.. I would cougar all over Morgan!!!

(men can be with women 20 years below their age and get patted on the back from their buddies for their catch!!
I am totally 100% for ‘equal opportunity’!!!! 😉

GO AVA !!!!!

Ava and Morgan have great chemistry…they should remain together!!!

I completely agree with you. They are HOT!

I love Maura West as Ava Jerome! Ms. West has chemistry with every female and male actor on the show! Such a great addition to the cast!

I totally agree…love the dynamic with the men a woman…her and Carlye are so explosive…it should be an exciting ride….so love GH!

Maura West was fantastic as Carly on As the World Turns. I may tune into GH soon (haven’t seen it in years) just because of her…and Roger Howarth who was also on ATWT. MISS THAT SHOW !

I LOVE Morgan/Ava scenes–and people’s reactions to them, too, such as Diane’s “Oh, Morgan, I see you still haven’t found your shirt.”

Is it me or has Carol Hennessy aka “Diane Miller” gotten better? The lines are obviously the writers, but her delivery gets better and better. That line about the shirt got me too, as did when she first saw Morgan and said “It seems like just yesterday you were a little boy, practicing your karate whips!”

i know, right?

when she saw Franco shirtless….

“I didn’t know you were “SO” healthy…” as she sauntered and sashayed her full figured cum hither


kudos to carol Hennessy – ala the current day, ex Marion Colby, AMC
or… Gloria (Glo herself) Judith Chapman – Y&R

My favorite couple right now! they sizzle together and the storyline opportunities are endless with these two – I’m seeing them developing feelings for each other already. Team Morgan/Ava all the way!

They have amazing chemistry together, its a very daring storyline. I worry though about characters destructing. Morgan will spirrel if rejected by his own Father as well the Jeromes, if her turns on them. Ava will spirrel if she is caught in the crossfire of being revealed as a killer which is already happening, I want Ava good—not bad!!

Anything involving Maura West (Ava, GH; ex-Carly, ATWT) is destined to be great, hot and steamy! The girl can act her ass off! So I’m not surprised she made the list!

Go Maura !She is magnificent any time she is on screen.Ava and Morgan,how could that not be HOT!?

I totally agree with Michelle Stafford’s – The Stafford Project – being a HOT MESS !!!

If MS thinks this venture will get her a Prime Time gig, she needs to think again.

Looks like her hot mess of a show got her into a mainstream magazine so she is doing something right. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea but the series seems to be catching the attention of some people that matter. Good for her! At least she is trying to step out of the box,

When Michelle Stafford reads the “mainstream magazine” says her project is a HOT MESS, I doubt she’ll be jumping for joy.

From what I have seen on Twitter, FB and Instagram, she is THRILLED. She had photos from the TV Guide party that she and producers went to on twitter and Instagram. She also shared screen shots from the photo spread in TV Guide.

Ummm what you two don’t understand is that you have to be a bit more savvy in reading the Article before posting your comments. It’s a Hot show with a Hot Mess character. Because so much happens to her. Ya see how that works???

You’re right, davleestev .. 🙂

I misread the article .. 🙁

That said – The Stafford Project – is not my cup of tea .. so, I still think it’s a hot mess.

Love the Ava/Morgan affair. I’m a fan. And yes, they are totally hot!

Congrats to Michelle Stafford. Loved her as Phyllis and miss her on Y&R. Haven’t caught her web series and probably won’t. But happy for her success.

I miss Michelle Stafford too.

“Phyllis” was one of my favourite characters.

“…It’s the scandal of Port Charles, but this was no one-night mistake.”

Ava and Morgan!

hip hip hooray. why not… it’s unmistakable – no denying… feast for the fodder… stimuli
that triggers your goodies

Eva LaRue Makes Her ‘General Hospital’ Debut: What Were Your First Impressions of Natalia Rogers-Ramirez?

On the Monday, February 26th episode of General Hospital, former All My Children favorite, Eva LaRue (ex-Maria Santos), made her first appearance in her new recurring role of Blaze’s (Jacqueline Grace Lopez) mother, Natalia Rogers-Ramirez.

In key scenes, as Kristina (Kate Mansi) and Blaze are happy after spending the night together, Kristina is in for a shock when she is still in bed and the door opens and Blaze’s mother, Natalia strolls in seemingly oblivious to walked she just walked in.

Natalia announces, “Alison, Mommy’s here!” Then, Natalia looks over and sees Kristina in bed and both women are a bit startled. Kristina introduces herself to “Mrs. Rogers-Ramirez.” However, Natalia corrects her and says it’s “Miss.”

Next, Blaze walks into the room still in her robe. She is very shocked that her mother arrived in Port Charles much earlier than expected. Natalia wants an explanation of just what she walked in on. It is then, Kristina concocts a story and explains they had a girls’ night, and it got late so Alison let her crash.

Natalia seems to buy into Kristina’s lies. Blaze starts to argue with her mother over the non-vegan sandals her mother brought her from Puerto Rico and her grandmother’s pudding, which she has told her in the past she dislikes. Kristina pipes in that the reason Alison doesn’t like it, is because of the texture and the same goes for avocado and flan. Natalia says she thinks she knows her own daughter.

Then, Blaze gets more upset and asks Kristina to stay and be by her side. Blaze announces that she and Kristina are more than just friends. We already know that Natalia is from a very conservative background, so we anticipate on tomorrow’s episode of GH, she won’t approve finding out her daughter is gay. Stay-tuned.

So, were you happy to see Eva LaRue back on daytime and now on General Hospital? What were you first impressions of her new character Natalia Rogers-Ramirez? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first, check out the scenes from her arrival below,

General Hospital’s William Lipton to Star in Music Drama Series ‘The Runarounds’ From ‘Outer Banks’ Creators

This sounds like a perfect starring vehicle for the multi-talented William Lipton (Cameron Webber), who recently made a brief return to General Hospital for his best friend, Spencer Cassadine’s (the exited Nicholas Chavez) gravesite memorial service.

Now comes word that Lipton is set to star in a new series in the works entitled The Runarounds. If that name sounds familiar, it’s because The Runarounds is the name of the band seen in season three of Netflix’s popular series, Outer Banks. 

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Amazon has given the green light to an eight-episode, straight-to-series order for The Runarounds which premise features the story of a post-high school band as they try to make it big.

The fictional drama is inspired by the real life band of the same name and will star its group’s members: William Lipton, Axel Ellis, Jeremy Yun, Zendé Murdock and Jesse Golliher.

The Runarounds will be set and film in Wilmington, North Carolina, where Outer Banks was also shot. Skydance Television is the studio behind the series. Outer Banks creators Josh Pate, Joshua Pate, and Shannon Burke will bring this project to life.

Lipton took to his Instagram on Monday, once the news of the series was revealed, expressing, “Where are we going, fellas? To the top, Johnny!” Immediately GH co-stars past and present shared their congratulations to William including: Sydney Mikayla (ex-Trina Robinson) and Enzo De Angelis, who plays Lipton’s brother, Aiden on GH.


In a statement, Vernon Sanders, head of television at Amazon MGM Studios, expressed: “When we first met with Jonas and Skydance about The Runarounds, it was immediately clear that they brought us a special show featuring an incredibly talented cast and real-life band. We are very much looking forward to sharing the exhilarating journey of The Runarounds with our global Prime Video customers.”

The Runarounds were actually formed as a band back in 2021, when Jonas Pate issued a casting call looking for a group to appear on Outer Banks. The group first performed together when they played for Pate ahead of appearing in season three after being selected from a more than 5,000 musicians who responded to the call.

No word yet on when The Runarounds will be released.

So, excited for this opportunity for William Lipton to star in this music drama? Hope he returns to GH down the line? Comment below.
