Today was General Hospital’s Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo (Brenda Corinthos) day on the internet. First, the actress tweeted her final tape date is this week on June 9th, and then her previously announced interview with TV Guide’s Michael Logan was posted.

In the interview, VMG discusses her thoughts on how her recent return played out on air, Brenda having a long lost child of her own, if Jax and Brenda will exit the canvas together, and if and when she were to return next, who else besides Sonny might she see in Brenda’s romantic future.  Plus, she weighs in on if GH were to be canceled, how she would like to see it end for Brenda!   Here are a few excerpts:

VMG on if Jax and Brenda will leave together in July: “I don’t know. My final tape date is June 9 and I’ll probably get the script the night before, but I do know there’s a big twist when Brenda leaves. They have a surprise up their sleeves. I will say there’s still unfinished business for me. I still want a storyline with Tony Geary [Luke] and Jonathan Jackson [Lucky]. And I’d love to do a triangle with Maurice and me and Steve Burton. Steve got me through my first few months when I joined GH and I’ll never forget that. I was having some very serious health problems, was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance, there was all kinds of drama, and Steve was my rock. Can you imagine if Brenda goes and sleeps with Jason? That would cause so many problems.”

VMG if she were to come back should GH get canceled: “I know it’s a reality but I prefer to stay delusional. No matter what other things I do in my career, I had every intention of eventually coming back to GH and growing old on the show and becoming Anna Lee [the late actress who played Lila Quartermaine]. To sit down and have all the young characters come talk to me and get some great wisdom about life — the kind of thing you can only do on soaps — would be so wonderful! I miss Anna Lee so much. I can’t even think about Stuart Damon [Alan] without bursting into tears. Where are the Quartermaines? I do believe it was a mistake to get rid of all that history. Aaaauuurgh! It’s so hard to think about cancellation. It’s such a tough thing to talk about, but [GH exec producer] Jill Phelps and I did discuss it the other day. If GH were to end, I want to be there. If God forbid this show is cancelled, I guarantee Sonny and Brenda will be riding off together into the sunset! That doesn’t mean Sonny may not find love with somebody else and have a great relationship between now and then.”

Are you looking forward to Brenda’s story wrapping up? Or, do you wish Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo would stick around for a longer stay? And, what do you think is the surprise twist?

Great interview as usual. It’s settling to know that Vanessa wasn’t happy with what was given to her.. that was given in her decoy responses. She’ll always find the best in things, it’s just who she is.

I love Vanessa, I love Brenda, but I HATE what they did to her this return. I couldn’t even stomach to watch. I’m excited for her to leave, but only so they don’t ruin this character that I’ve spent more than half my life loving anymore.

I could not agree with you more!! What they did to the memory of the character of Brenda, is a CRIME!!!! She was my ultimate favorite character EVER on any soap (and I’ve watched several) All I wanted the past 10 years was for her to come back and I feel like I am still waiting, because who the hell was this chick this past year? It certainly wasn’t the Brenda Barrett I knew and worshipped! It was all I could do to not FF through her scenes. I hope that if GH does get cancelled B & S do… Read more »

I agree almost completely! I love Brenda, and have since the beginning. She’s hands down the most compelling character ever in daytime television, not least because of the immeasurable talent of Ms. Marcil (wire scene, anyone?). I HATED her return in terms of storyline and writing and even production. It literally couldn’t be worse. But I’ve waited so long for Sonny and Brenda to get back together and marry. So it was worth it to me — and the wedding scenes were spectacular. Also, Vanessa and Maurice are great actors and I enjoyed watching them, even if it was clear… Read more »

I”M hoping that GH won’t be involved in the Katie Couric new talk program. Do we really need one more talk show? I think whoever is running ABC is an idiot. I have been a GH fan a very long time and have seen it all. Sometimes Brenda really gets on my nerves. I don’t have any feeling about her but I do care about Sonny and his happiness. So far, he has done a great job keeping Brenda in tow. What ever will happen, I hope some PTB will step up to the plate and give Couric a different… Read more »

Brenda this goe around was so timid i think it could have been better.. Yeah i’d say that GH will be the next soap to go since abc got rid of it’s best soap OLTL. I’d say the fall of 2012 it will be canceled.

GH’s Kirsten Storms Shares More Details on Her Brain Surgery and Recovery

On Sunday, Kirsten Storms (Maxie, General Hospital) posted a follow-up message on her Instagram account to her friends and followers on how she is doing following her brain surgery, and to answer any questions that may be out on there; so she decided to share further details.

Storms expressed: “First, thank you for all of the well wishes I’ve received over the last few days. 🥰 Little bit of info for those who are wondering.. I spent the last few years having random health issues that I disregarded as side affects to my medications or just something I was experiencing due to age. When I went to get an MRI for some severe neck pain I have been experiencing for the last few months (I assumed this neck pain was also causing my frequent “migraines”) my amazingly thorough orthopedist ordered an MRI of my head just to be on the “safe side” – even though that isn’t his area of expertise.  Truly a great doctor.  That’s when we stumbled upon a rather large, very full of fluid, cyst that was attached to the lower portion of brain. I feel very fortunate that my situation wasn’t more serious and that I had a wonderful neurosurgeon who immediately knew how to fix it. I’m not gonna lie, brain surgery had me nervous, but I’m immensely thankful to my family, friends, and incredible “work family” who have been supportive, kind and loving during a time when I’ve been feeling a lot of emotions. Work is a great place to be everyday and for the 2 months leading up to my surgery I found a lot of comfort being around the people I’ve worked beside for so many years. I’m excited to get back to it after my recovery. (Yes, they shaved a portion of my head, so please no comments if you don’t like my hair. It’s temporary.). Again, thank you to everyone for sending positive vibes my way. It’s not gone unnoticed. ♥️

Fun fact: I now firmly believe the new plates in my brain will give me some sort of special ability. Fingers crossed I can suddenly knit a sweater in 1 day. Ooo maybe 1 hour. 😮”

Please continue to send well-wishes to Kirsten via the comment section below as she is on the mend, and we look forward to her return to GH when she is recovered.

GH’s Kirsten Storms Reveals She Is Recovering From Brain Surgery

On Friday afternoon, General Hospital’s Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones) took to her Instagram Story accompanied in the car by her best friend, Emme Rylan (Ex-Lulu, GH) that she just underwent brain surgery.  In the video, Storms was in a neck brace.

In her message to her fans and friends, Kirsten shared: “I’ve not really spoken about this much, or at all, actually.  But, less than 48 hours ago, I had brain surgery, hence the neck brace.  It was on the lower portion of my brain. Emme is taking care of me until I get to my at-home nurse. It has been an interesting last couple of days.”

Kirsten went to clarify what kind of surgery it was, revealing: “What they had to drain and remove was not cancer. I want to clarify that right now before the Internet, goes crazy wild with rumors about this. I had a very large cyst that had split into two and the doctor said it was so full, the pressure was very noticeable when they opened up my skull.”

Now that the pressure is relieved from her brain, Storms will be healing and taking time off from work at GH, expressing: “I will be on the mend for the next several weeks. I will be back at work when this is over with.”

Share your well-wishes for a safe and speedy recovery to Kirsten via the comment section below.
