That’s too bad. 🙁

I remember when she was all excited to be expecting a baby with him and then suffered a miscarriage. That must take a toll on a marriage.

I forgot about that. More often than not, couples separate after such a tragedy. 🙁

Interesting that she wants him to pay for attorney fees and spouse support. Wondering if he is to blame for the marriage not working and “irreconcilable differences” is a nice way of saying “it’s all his fault”. LOL! Surely she’s not so poor she can’t afford attorney fees and her own support otherwise. If not, come back to GH, Vanessa. We love you on there (when they write well for your character). 🙂

God no…never, never bring Brenda back. She had failed every time.

As a volunteer at a daytime charity event several years back I met Vanessa and she was such a BITCH so if her attitude that day is any indication of the way she is in everyday life, She is probably at fault in this divorce & Carmine who I hope does NOT have to pay any kind of spousal support is LUCK to get her Out of his Life!!

My name is Ann too, lol.

But maybe she was just having a bad day? I’ve never heard someone say she treated them badly, in fact just the opposite, that she is very sweet and caring. We all moments we’re not proude of but I don’t think this is in general her attitude. She seems to be loved by the GH cast and other people who worked with her. We can’t get along with everyone.

But I’m disappointed that one woman would judge another woman’s marriage and say it was her fault, especially when you don’t know these people. She suffered two miscarriages in the past year. WE don’t know what went wrong with their marriage. But to just blame her out of hand because you met her once and she wasn’t as nice as you thought she should be? That’s too bad.

THANK YOU……I have always thought of her as a flake. Brenda Brenda Brensa. Big Deal. Never thought she was much of an actor, nor cared for character. Please, TPTB DO NOT consider bringing her back. Am loving the Sonny/Kate storyline. Truly feel that Vanessa/Brenda needs to get a grip….JMO

Ann

I love Brenda. She’s my favorite. I loathe the Sonny/Kate storyline. She’s awful and they’re awful together, imo. So I am waiting for the day for her to return.

I truly don’t understand why she has to “get a grip.” Because she’s divorcing her husband? I’m confused. But anyway. Can’t wait for her to return.

I am so sorry to hear that. Positive thoughts to her as she works through it. <3
I am pretty certain that Ron and Frank would write her a MUCH better story than the last regime if given the chance.

Shocking since last I heard they wanted a baby together. Too bad it didn’t work out. She doesn’t seem to have much love luck.

Ann

Actually she is not asking for spousal support if you read the divorce papers. Eonline showed the papers and said she is not asking for the spousal support.

In any event, I’m very sorry for her and her husband. She’s had a rough year. She is beautiful and very sweet. And yes, I will actually watch General Hospital again if she comes back, LOL. But beyond that, I wish her well.

I thought I read somewhere else that she was asking that Carmine not get spousal support. She doesn’t want to pay him. So reading the opposite here was confusing.

Ann
Ann

If you look at the divorce papers, no, she is not asking for spousal support.

Obviosly money IS a problem for her, because not too long ago she made the headlines for bortowing a huge amount of money from Brian Autin Green, her babys dadfy and not paying any of it back. He finally sued her to get her to acknowlege the debt. Guess she thought it was a gift! She doesnt appear to be sucessful with men or money, just acting which she doesnt seem to do anymore.

Ann

I think it’s really sad that you feel it necessary to talk like this about someone just because they’re going through a divorce. And yes, Vanessa apparently did believe it was a gift that was given to her by her baby’s father while they were still together and a family. YOu have no idea what this woman is going through in her private life.

Brian said is his interview that she neefed the money and took ir from him as a loan, LOAN meaing I will pay it back, not gift as in its mine and I dont owe u anything.He would not sue for a return of a gift. No., I dont know her personally although I have met her. I just sit back and watch the results of her publicized life.

I met Vanessa several years back and she was very humble and lovely to me and my friend. She was on Vegas at the time and remembered GH fondly. She was certainly proud of her Daytime roots. Vanessa came from a home of domestic violence and that’s not an easy blueprint to carry through to adulthood. I’m happy for her success in her craft and wish her many more successes.

Ann

That’s what I’ve always heard about her, how sweet she is. And she does so much with charity. And yes, she is always very humble and respects daytime television greatly. I’ve never seen an ex-GH castmember who goes out of their way to pimp the show and the medium like she does. Hope she’s doing okay and will love it if she comes back to General Hospital. Sonny and Brenda were one of the best daytime couples ever, and I can’t imagine this show ending without a sub-par pairing like Skate over S&B.

I just want her to have good writing. But also don’t want her to come back until she’s ready. She’s been through alot.

That’s such a shock, but suffering two miscarriages I’m sure can seep into one’s marriage. I wish her and her soon-to-be ex the happiness in the world that they deserve.

It’s sad when any marriage breaks up. I hope their child comes through it okay. I also hope that she does NOT return to GH. The character is not what is once was and that’s not a good thing.

I myself grew up in ahome with an abusive,violent parent so I can empathize with her and the pain she must be experiencing along with her husband and her sons.God help them through this unhappy time and help them to heal.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Lulu Is Served Divorce Papers From Dante

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital. Lulu (Emme Rylan) was in for a shocker when she was served divorce papers while hanging out at Aiden’s birthday party.  Prior to receiving the divorce papers, Lulu and daughter, Charlotte had been lamenting about Dante.

Charlotte (Scarlett Fernandez) asked Lulu when Dante is coming back?  She says she misses him and being a family together, and Lulu sadly agreed she missed him too.  When a stunned Lulu is served the papers, she tells her mother, Laura (Genie Francis) what they are.

So, what is going on here? We know that Peter (Wes Ramsey) got shot in the shoulder by Dante on his visit with Maxie (Kirsten Storms) to Ithaca to see him to hopefully bring him home to Lulu which backfired.

Since Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is not on the canvas as a series regular at this point, it would appear that GH is looking for a way to free up the character of Lulu for  now. But as we know on GH things may not be as they appear.  Did Dante really have those papers drawn up, or is this some manipulation from someone else?

When viewers last saw Dante he was leaving Port Charles to be deprogrammed after suffering severe PTSD from his time in Turkey.  In addition, viewers recently saw a potential new man in Lulu’s life arrive on the scene when former OLTL alum, Mark Lawson appeared as Dustin Phillips.

After yesterday’s episode aired, Zamprogna tweeted in response to the storyline twist, while having some fun about his former co-star Emme Rylan: “She’s gonna be damn heart broken! For at least 5 mins! Then she’s gonna knit something. Hopefully some underwear for Dante.”

So, are you upset that Lulu was served with divorce papers . … or are you glad and want the character to move on in her romantic life? Comment below.

With Talk Of Nikolas On GH, Tyler Christopher Says: “I’ve Always Said I Would Never Close That Door From My Side”

On recent episodes of ABC’s General Hospital, a few of the key characters in the life of the “late” Nikolas Cassadine spoke about him including: his on-screen mother, Laura (Genie Francis), his ex, Hayden Barnes (Rebecca Budig), and a woman who would have been poised to be a new love interest, Ava (Maura West).

So with the name-drops and mentions in recent weeks, could the character who was shot by Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and fell out a glass window on a balcony, be making a return soon and be very much alive?

Soap fans tweeted at the actor most known for his role as Nikolas Cassadine (in which he won a Daytime Emmy for his performance), and former Days of our Lives star, Tyler Christopher, to see what his thoughts were on what could be happening on General Hospital with the character.

Tyler made this statement to his Twitter followers: “You are all very sweet to be so loyaI as you always are. I know they are talking about Nikolas as of late. I’ve always said I would never close that door from my side. I just want to thank you all for always rooting for me and the character. I grew up with him as many of u have.”

For over 20 years, Christopher had played the role of the dark prince of the Cassadines.  When he went on leave from the series in 2016, he was replaced by Nick Stabile, who was Nikolas at the time of the character’s supposed death.

Later, Tyler debut on Days of our Lives and took on the role of the newly created character of Stefan O DiMera.  He was also nominated earlier this year for a Daytime Emmy for Lead Actor for his performance in that role.

Longtime fans of GH have also been active on social media hoping that somehow GH could find a way to bring back both Tyler, as well as his on-screen TV brother, Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky) so Laura could also have her sons back on the canvas.

So, do you think GH is about to bring Nikolas back?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

OLTL Favorite Mark Lawson Appears On General Hospital

Viewers of ABC daytime were in a for a surprise (although rumors had been circulating), when former One Life to Live alum, Mark Lawson showed up on Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital.   In it, Mark came on to the Port Charles scene as Dustin Phillips, a man Lulu (Emme Rylan) was meeting with at the Metro Court for her “story” on online dating, and a potential suspect in the home burglaries tied to a dating app.

Meanwhile, while Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) is away originally being deprogrammed from his nightmare in Turkey, Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) got news from Mac (John J. York) that there may be a lead to his whereabouts in Ithaca, New York,

Maxie is taking it upon herself to locate Dante and bring him back to Lulu.  In addition, when she noticed Lulu enjoying the company of Dustin a bit too much, she was somewhat alarmed that her bff would be having a good time with another man.

It’s been a minute since daytime fans have seen Lawson, who played Navy Seal, Brody Lovett on One Life.  His character was involved with Jessica (Bree Williamson) and all of her alters: Tess, Bess, Wes, et,c and also Jessica’s sister, Natalie (Melissa Archer).

Once fans got wind of his GH appearance, Lawson posted on Instagram along with his workout videos: “Well .. cat’s out of the bag, Stay soapy, my friends.”

So, will Mark continue on GH as a new love interest for Lulu?  Could Dustin be tied to the crimes Lulu is investigating? Would you like to see Lulu move on with her life if Dante is off the canvas for a long time, or do you hope Dominic Zamprogna returns, and there becomes a triangle, or none of the above? Let us know what should happen for Luly in the romance department via the comment section below.
