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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
