Amidst all the romantic drama, the never-dull Nurses Ball audience will be entertained with enlivening performances, unexpected guest arrivals and sexy surprises.”

We won’t spoil the Ball show numbers as many are being kept top secret! But let us know. who are you looking forward to seeing perform the most? Is it perhaps little Emma Drake (Brooklyn Rae Silzer)?

I agree that the nurses ball is silly but harmless fun but as for habitual complainer…why is it ok for you to be one when it comes to Y&R all the time…lol…arent you being a hypocrite…lol…anyway thats what these message boards are for…what we like and dislike about our soaps…why watch if its so bad…then why do you watch Y&R then…you are like the rest of us…we have a soap addiction and we want to keep watching…soap characters have become like members of our family and like members of our real families we want what we think is best for… Read more »

I am hoping that he is only going to be a musical guest at the Nurses Ball because he is in a band in real life.

I can’t wait for the ball to happen and i think the actors enjoy performing because it’s fun for them.As for what might happen at the ball i think Lucy’s affair with Scott will be exposed in a public way.Plus i see romance happening there.

I’m sure the three kids will be involved. They are very talented and could steal the show. Maybe Rick Springfield will show? Oh, that wouldnt be possible. That means they would have to write a story line that involved a legendary character. God forbid he show up and support Patrick as his son fights for his life. The writing has got to go!

Maybe Emma can sing ‘Torn Between Two Lovers’ while Spencer and Cameron fight in a duel…with plastic swords of course…i know, corny…lol

Right Timmm….because that would make toooo much sense! Can’t have that. Instead we’ve been once again treated to yet another round of Frisco-dissing….I certainly hope today’s episode was the last of it! It has been very tasteless to witness Felicia (and Kristina) being part of this ongoing bashing of not only her onscreen, but real life, ex…..hence it was refreshing to finally hear her attempt to put an end to it, not to mention the entire crowd’s universal panning of “Herr Marbles.” (I would like to see him suffer a fate similar to that of the “late” Ariel doll….LOL!)

They were emphasizing the name of Greek b/c its Yoplait Greek Yogurt and they paid $$$ to sponsor the ball in REAL life (ABC) and in the soap universe. Product placement is a thing now for our shows to continue on… and when we have a thing like the Nurses Ball, we NEED someone to step up. Yoplait was our Lucy Coe last year. Theres nothing childish here… you’re looking for something to attack Ron and paint him in a bad light. It’s a sponsor. nothing more. If Oikos had coughed up the money… they would have been eating Oikos.… Read more »

Daniel….I delayed my reply until the end of the NB….a wait and see attitude, and I now have to say my first assumption was dead-on!!!! While I totally understand the reality of product placement and the way it plays a part in productions, this went way beyond that…it was both directly and indirectly aimed at John Stamos, and by extension, Oikos. Yes, the company Yoplait may have paid for considerations in the storyline, but the fact the “GREEK” was played up, along with the scripted Blackie no-show stunt, this was definitely meant to besmirch both the actor and the competing… Read more »

Can’t wait to see who performs! I know who won’t be – just considering the seriousness of their storylines (Sonny, Olivia, Morgan, Ava, Sabrina, Patrick). But, I wonder if the 3 little cutie pie’s – Cameron, Emma & Spencer – will do a number together.

I will DVR it of course. That way what offends me I FF . Finola and Brooklyn, I will of course watch.the strippers you can have. The bait and switch Ronn Moss, and anything with *NINA*, ff city. The last NB was awful, Mr Mumbles just sit Sonny on Mac’s knee and you have the same thing. I didn’t think it was possible but the show gets worse when I bother to watch.

Then may I suggest that you don’t watch and leave the rest of us that enjoy it in peace?

I suggest you don’t bother to read my posts. If my comments don’t allow you to enjoy your show sorry .I have my opinion and you have yours. FrankenRon do not deserve an emmy for using the vets to get the ratings too go up then Phelps to step in and allow Tristan Rogers to have a contract. GF is gone, so many newbies and when they play bait and stitch with ?? they stories are off the wall. If you are a troll for FrankenRon tell them I do not enjoy the show, now.I have an opinion and I… Read more »

Seriously, from all the complaints I read on all the message boards the GH audience wouldn’t even crack a million viewers if everyone who complained actually stopped watching… and the way RC taunts people, both on Twitter and in the show’s plot points he must want people to react with their opinions (complete fool that he is).

I had never seen the nurses ball, but last year I saw some of it for the first time, and the part I saw was light hearted entertainment – good fun escape. Perhaps, there was more going on then I realized or afterwards, but the part I saw was cute. Appreciated that kind of break from the stresses of the work day.

Oh RJ, if you ever have extra time on your hands you MUST go back and watch prior episodes of the Nurses Ball!!! Don’t get me wrong… I LOVED last year and this year’s ball but the earlier balls are just incredible!!!! Definitely ‘MUST SEE’ moments!

Stef- thank you for informing. I will look them up. Always enjoy some light hearted entertainment as a break from the craziness that life throws at us at times. Sometimes, I wish the Soaps would do more of that. They seem to like to go to dark side most of the time , but perhaps, that is what draws people in and sells. As a periodic Days of our Lives watcher and being a bit older, I always enjoyed the Julie and Doug era when they used to sing and entertain at Doug’s place and then tie storylines into that.… Read more »

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.

Holly’s Alive as Emma Samms Makes a Return to General Hospital

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.

Nighttime soap fans remember her fondly as Fallon on ABC’s Dynasty and its spin-off, The Colbys.

Once the secret was out on her appearance at the end of Friday’s episode,  Samms shared on Twitter: “She’s alive…!”

So what do you think of the twist? That Holly is alive and that Samms was on-screen? Who do you think has Holly? Share your theories below.
