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.

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 »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nina Helps Sonny After Realizing He is Off His Meds

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, will no doubt lead to Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Nina (Cynthia Watros) becoming closer, because she was witness, went through, and helped the mobster get help while he was having a manic episode after being off his meds for bipolar disorder.

A disheveled Sonny was outside insulating the kids’ treehouse, didn’t sleep all night, is not eating, and tells Nina – who stayed the night at the Corinthos’ home on the couch – that he feels great.  Then, he tells Nina to stop telling him what to do and to stay out of his way.

Nina panics and calls Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) at the hospital worried that Sonny is off his meds, and she needs medical advice on what to do about it.  Britt tells Nina it’s important to get Sonny to a doctor and not argue with him, but to get him to acknowledge he is having a manic episode.

After the call, Nina asks Sonny not to leave and to explain bipolar disorder to her. He replies it’s like a nightmare but that’s not what’s happening now. Then, he grabs her wrists hard as she stands at the door, as he wants to leave, and Nina tells him, she is hurting her.  Sonny has a moment of realization and insists he does not hurt women. Sonny asks Nina if she is now afraid of him?  She tells him she isn’t. All of a sudden, Sonny feels exhausted.  He sits with Nina and starts to cry and admits he has been off his meds.  She gets him to agree that he needs to see Dr. Sullivan and get a refill.

Sonny and Nina arrive at GH, and Britt shows them to an examining room. Nina wants to make sure he’s OK, before she exits, but Sonny wants to make sure he did not injure her wrists. Nina says she is OK, but you could tell she is emotional from the entire encounter she went through with Sonny.

Maurice Benard took to Twitter within the last 24 hours stating about the storyline which is throwing Sonny’s love life in turmoil and working opposite both Laura Wright (Carly) and Cynthia Watros: “I go where ever it is best for the show and fortunately right now this story is doing well, even better than well, now you may not want to hear that. You already know I love Laura and Cynthia. I keep saying this is between history and change, I think after 20 years change is good.”

So, what did you think of the scenes between Nina and Sonny? Do you agree with us that Nina seeing Sonny having a manic episode will draw them closer together? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Helena, Jennifer Smith & The Ice Princess: What Did You Think of Luke Spencer’s Memorial?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought the highly-anticipated story around the apparent death of Port Charles iconic, Luke Spencer (Tony Geary), although many fans, and even some of the cast of the show, are not sold that Luke is “dead” dead.

During the show, characters spoke of some of the history of Luke in Port Charles, most especially Luke’s sister, Bobbie played by Jackie Zeman.  Throughout the years, Zeman is at her best when she is given material through the writing of the show to connect to the history of Luke and Bobbie.  She did so when Bobbie was remembering how Luke came to Port Charles to help her break up Scotty and Laura, in a discussion with her daughter, Carly (Laura Wright).

Photo: ABC

As everyone is gathering at the Haunted Star to pay their respects to Luke, Curtis (Donnell Turner) arrives to support Laura (Genie Francis), Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and Anna (Finola Hughes) arrive together, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West), as well as Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez  also show up. It is through Nikolas’ conversation with Laura that we learn why Luke’s sons, Ethan and Lucky, can’t make the funeral and, of course, we know why Luke’s daughter Lulu can’t make it because she is in a coma!

Victor (Charles Shaughnessy) shows up and snipes at everyone and then leaves.  Tracy (Jane Elliot), who has arranged the memorial, is with an urn supposedly filled with Luke’s ashes and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) finds her on the deck of the Haunted Star and talks her into giving her planned eulogy.

Meanwhile, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finds his dad, Sonny (Maurice Benard) drinking at Charlie’s, and later Scott (Kin Shriner) and Robert (Tristan Rogers) stop in and heated words are exchanged between Sonny and Scott. Victor shows up and instead of Scott and Sonny pummeling each other, they get into a fight against Victor.

As Scott and Robert are about to be on their way to the Haunted Star, Scott stays behind because of his past with Luke.  Then, Sonny tried to patch things up with Carly before they head to the memorial.

Back on the yacht, Anna and Felicia find a note and a flash drive, after hearing a commotion on the yacht.  When the note says “play me”, none other than Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) addresses Luke’s friends and family from apparently the great beyond.  As Helena spews her venom against Luke, Laura has enough and pulls the plug on Helena’s video speech.  Tracy looks concerned, like she may want to hear whatever else Helena had to say.

Next, Tracy does her best in short order to eulogize Luke.  That is juxtaposed with Scott trashing Luke.  Later, by herself on the deck, Tracy spreads Luke’s ashes over the waters of Port Charles. Back on the pier, Scott relishes Luke being gone, and that he is still standing saying, “You lose you son of a bitch!” Just then Luke’s ashes blow in into his face.  When Bobbie arrives, and see Scott full of ashes, she asks what happened.  Scott says, “I caught the bouquet,” an obvious nod to the Luke and Laura wedding of the past, where Scott returned at their wedding and caught the wedding bouquet.

Courtesy/ABC

Back on the Haunted Star, Tracy then has a gift in hand for Laura, but she tells Tracy if that’s the Ice Princess she does not want anything to do with it, and tells Tracy to keep it.  Spencer sees this go down and his interest on the diamond is instantly piqued.

Back at Charlie’s bar, Victor has an ominous toast to Luke saying, “The good people of your fair city are in for a big surprise!”

At the Haunted Star, dressed in black with black veil, Jennifer Smith reveals herself to a shocked Laura.

So, what did you think of Luke’s memorial episode? Favorite parts of it? Least favorite? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, check out Helena’s videotaped speech and Tracy’s eulogy to Luke below.

(WATCH) GH’s Genie Francis Shares: “I Just Have a Hard Time Believing, In My Heart, That The Great Luke Spencer Died in an Accident”

Today’s Friday episode of General Hospital, is set to feature the funeral of the iconic Luke Spencer (Tony Geary).

While family and friends will gather on the Haunted Star to memorialize him, what been teased by the ABC daytime drama is it will also set a whole storyline in motion.

ABC7 entertainment guru, George Pennacchio, spoke to several of the GH cast, who are involved in the episode including: Luke Spencer’s long-time love, Laura played by Genie Francis.

Francis exclaimed on the whole story: “I just have a hard time believing, in my heart, that the great Luke Spencer died in an accident.  No one stays dead on a soap. I don’t know how many times I’ve been dead. Really!”

Genie added: “I feel like they’re setting the stage, really, for a wonderful comeback and I’m going to keep my fingers crossed for that.”

Luke’s longtime friend played by Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) shared: “And has it actually happened? I mean, frankly, we have a little urn about this big that’s supposed to contain him and that’s it.”

And Luke’s sister, Bobbie, played by Jackie Zeman, also weighed-in if Luke is really a-goner: “Sometimes you get these little red herrings so, as you know, George, you know, you never really know.”

Watch Pennacchio chat with the GH stars below.

Now weigh-in, do you believe Luke is very much alive and well? Held captive, or “dead” dead? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
