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). 🙂

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… Read more »

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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… Read more »

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.

GH’s Brook Kerr and Tabyana Ali Talk On: Trina’s Trial, Spencer and Rory, And Their On-Screen Mother/Daughter Relationship

Currently, General Hospital fans are awaiting the verdict in Trina’s trial and just what lengths her mother will go to in order to secure her freedom! With the story playing out on-air, Michael Farman chatted in a new virtual interview with the two women central to the story; Brook Kerr (Portia) and Tabyana Ali (Trina).

As viewers know, Trina was set-up by Esme Prince (Avery Pohl), to make it appear that she taped her best friends, Cameron (William Lipton) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) having sex, and then posted the video from her phone, so it went viral.

During the conversation for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Tabyana and Brook weigh-in on what’s gone down at the trial including; how Spencer Cassadine came forward with an alibi for Trina, plus how Portia may put her medical career at risk if she brings Esme’s partner in crime, Oz, out of his coma to get the evidence they need to point the finger on Esme.

 

In addition, Tabyana and Brook share their thoughts on the men in Trina’s life: Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Rory Cabrera (Michael Blake Kruse), and how the #Sprina has a life of its own on social media.

Brook also shares dishes on Portia’s romantic relationship with Curtis (Donnell Turner), plus the recent noteworthy scenes between Portia and Stella (Vernee Watson), where GH shed light on a mother’s concern; that racial injustice could factor in to the jury’s decision in Trina’s case.

Tabyana also discusses working alongside GH co-stars, Maura West (Ava) and Carolyn Hennesy (Diane), and what it was like taking over the role of Trina from popular fan favorite, Sydney Mikayla.

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Photo: ABC

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

Share your congratulations to Kin on his 45th anniversary in the comment section, and then let us know what has been your favorite Scott Baldwin scene through the years. 

But first, in case you missed it, check out our interview last year with Kin on the Michael Fairman Channel below.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Courtesy/ABC

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.
