Last weekend in Los Angeles, fans from all over the world and across the United States gathered together for The Young and the Restless Fan Club Weekend 2015. Y&R holds their annual gathering where fans can get up-close and personal with their favorites every two years, making it extra special for those who await the big event.

An Oxboard was the star of the show, along with the handsome men and beautiful women which comprise the talented A-list cast! Hilarity ensued when cast members: Amelia Heinle, Melissa Ordway, Christian LeBlanc, and even the one and only Jess Walton, attempted to balance themselves and move around the ballroom in front of enthusiastic and adoring fans on the personal transporter!

Major kudos goes to Cathy Tomas, the hard working fan club president of the number one soap opera, for making sure all the details were worked out and the fans were happy along with Y&R producers: Matt Olsen, Jimmy Freeman, and series publicist Matt Kane.

This year, Y&R decided to forego the traditional Q&A, and instead revealed a new format where actors took to the podium in groups designated by their storylines or families on the show. After everyone did a little shtick, welcomed the packed-house in the ballroom, and got the fans pumped up, they later took to their individual autograph tables so everyone could get a picture, and of course … a John Hancock… and a selfie!

I’ve been going to the Fan Expo/Comic Con for years since it was just a Star Trek convention. Was lucky enough to see William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy before Spock went to join the universe. Great lineup. Will be going again this fall. Last year met Robert Wise who at the time was the creep on Y&R as well as other sci-fi. He was very nice. Some day would like to go to the Star Trek convention in Las Vegas. What a lineup they had this year.

GH’s Maurice Benard Launches ‘State of Mind’ Website

Over the weekend, General Hospital’s Maurice Benard (Sonny Coinrthos) had been teasing on social media that he was about to debut on Sunday.  Well, it’s here! Benard has launched his brand new website, MB’s State of Mind (www.mbstateofmind.com).

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 features merchandise including:’State of Mind” t-shirts in various colors, as well as way to pre-order Maurice’s upcoming memoir, Nothing General About it.   In addition, Benard shares his “Sunday Sessions” in a special section, as well as his upcoming tour dates, with more content to come.

Maurice released a video talking about how ‘State of Mind’ came to him one night following an anxiety attack.

As many know, Benard is a mental health advocate having been very open about his own struggles with mental illness over the years, and how he wants to continue to dispel the stigma of those who battle with it.

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.

Maurice released a video talking about how ‘State of Mind’ came to him one night following an anxiety attack.  Watch it below.

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.

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.

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.

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.
