Yahhh!
Looking forward to the Nurses Ball..

And before the habitual negative complainers jump in;
The Ball is for fun!
Nothing serious..
The Actors have fun doing it/preforming and giving us fun entertainment watching it.

The singing, dancing and whatever else will be a good time !!!

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 them…so if we think thats not happening we will express our opinion just like i do with my real family…i see no harm in that…Peace and Love(i used to be a hippie…lol)

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.

Timmm

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!

jimh(leave it to beaver)

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!) Another questionable aspect was the pushing of the Yoplait “Greek” yogurt as a so-called event sponsor….did anyone else think, as did I, that this was designed specifically as a dig to John Stamos and his role as a spokesperson for the competing Oikos brand? It seemed since they were emphasizing the “Greek” version that it was but another of Ron C.’s childish, churlish little inside joke paybacks for which he’s become known. As for this whole mess of a NB, it will be almost impossible to equal last year’s excitement of having both Jack Wagner and Rick Springfield performing….sounds as though it’s going to be more hokey and amateurish this time around, although Dr. O. should definitely add some fun. And if Ronn Moss ends up being part of the musical line-up, that is also fine. Other than that, I’m really not jazzed….the legacy characters that are left on the show truly do not interest me as they have simply become old hat….Finola Hughes excepted. She’s always a sparking class act.

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. 🙂

Shay

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 yogurt line he so adorably represents. But thank you anyway for your input, even if we will have to agree to disagree on this one!

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 express it. We do not have to agree ,and apparently the emmy committee agrees. We all have the right to express our opinions. both of us..

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.

Stef

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!

Rj

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. Wish they would do some of that again.

On the site homepage is Benard’s mission statement.  The two-time Daytime Emmy-winner expressed: “State of Mind to me means being 100% present, feeling completely at peace inside of you, not letting your thoughts control your life and always looking for ways to be the best that you can be.”

The new site offers links to three organizations close to Maurice: Nami (National Alliance of Mental Health), Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services, and the International Bipolar Foundation.

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Friday’s episode of General Hospital combined with Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, saw Daytime Emmy-winner, Cynthia Watros, run through the gamut of emotions in her portrayal of the duped Nina Reeves on her wedding day and the aftermath.

READ MORE
GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin ... With Jax

Watros, who made Annie Dutton of Springfield and Guiding Light one of the most memorable soap roles of all-time, showed GH viewers why she is just THAT good!  We have always said that Cynthia can play: drama, romance, torture, cray-cray, heartbreak all rolled-into-one; especially when given the material.

Courtesy/ABC

In story, after part of the secret is out that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not really Nina’s bio-daughter – Nina, who has had everything she believed in fall in on her, tries to regain her strength to go back to Wyndemere to face Valentin, and move out of his house.  Once there to get her things, Nina tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that where she goes is no longer his business.

 

Valentin admits that he was looking for her daughter which caused this whole situation, but he also does not admit his part in the Sasha cover-up and that he was the one paying her to portray Nina’s daughter.  He even goes so far to insist that Sasha’s actions were all her own.  Nina still does not believe him.  After she packs her bag, and heads for the door. Valentin tells her that his life is meaningless without her. Nina basically says, “True, that” in so many words … and makes her exit.

Next, with sunglasses on, Nina returns to the workplace at Crimson where she finds Sasha with Michael (Chad Duell) and Lucy (Lynn Herring).  She calls security and tells them all to get out.  Sasha then spins a yarn, much to the chagrin of the audience, knowing that if she implicates Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Valentin, Nina would be devastated.  So, Sasha says she acted alone and faked being Nina’s daughter, when she was contacted by her attorney, and she was in cahoots with the guy … until he suddenly died!  What!?  Nina looks very suspicious… and throws back that how would Sasha know how to change three DNA test results.  Sasha had an answer for that – she had a friend who works in a lab do it.   Nina still believes she could not have done this alone without Valentin.  Then, in a heartbreaking speech, Watros as Nina shares how she has lost everything: her daughter, her marriage, hope she even had a daughter in the first place, and the list goes on.

 

Courtesy: ABC

And … let’s not forget Tuesday’s nuptials, which we gave our review and recap previously here.  It is there that Nina is first blindsided, and the betrayal, rage, and hurt displayed by Watros was all top-notch.  Here is Nina finally marrying the man she loves, whom she had to allow herself to come to trust all over again so she could be with him, even with all of the warning signs around her.  Not only does she have Lulu (Emme Rylan) spoil her nuptials with exposing the secret of Sasha, but then has to process the deception  which means to her that maybe she never had the child she so desperately wanted and believed she had all along.

The Friday cliffhanger though posed an upcoming intriguing scene.  Ava (Maura West) showed up with a bottle of booze to commiserate with Nina at Crimson (The same woman who Nina literally ripped the baby right out her and kidnapped it in a heinous revenge plot).  Will these two wronged woman team up?  Will there be hell to pay?  That is yet to be seen, but without a doubt, Cynthia Watros is Michael Fairman TV’s ‘Power Performance of the Week’.

Let us know if you agree with our pick via the comment section below, and what you thought about Cynthia’s work in these key episodes.

James Patrick Stuart Finally Gets His Photo In The Hallways at General Hospital: Watch What Happens!

Where has James Patrick Stuart’s (Valentin Cassadine) photo been all this time from the dressing room area at General Hospital?  Well, looks like we may have the answer to that question!

In a brand new video ditty posted by the folks at GH, Stuart is seen combing the hallways looking for his portrait along with the other major stars of the ABC daytime drama series .. problem is … it’s MIA! Something James takes notice off.

Then, in a time-jump (LOL), Stuart finally gets his big moment when he officially joins the ranks of the cast with his photo being unveiled right next to Maurice Benard’s (Sonny) picture.

The tweet accompanying the video relates: “Contrary to Valentin’s opinion… @japastu is having the best week ever.”   Of course, the tweet refers to Stuart’s character who has just had a disaster-filled wedding to Nina (Cynthia Watros)

Watch what happens below.

Then let us know what you thought of the clip and how much you enjoy the talents of JPS in Port Charles via the comment section below.
