The Young and the Restless, Michelle Stafford hosted a private get-together Thursday evening attended by some of the biggest names in daytime including: Days of our Lives, James Scott, Sarah Brown, Peter Reckell, Arianne Zuker, and Patrick Muldoon, General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn, The Young and the Restless, Christian LeBlanc, Jessica Collins, Stacy Haiduk, Kate Linder.

The event was to introduce the soap community to the efforts of The Earth Organization which is independent, grass roots, international non-profit, conservation and environment organization, with new solutions, committed to the creative, responsible rehabilitation of Planet Earth and the plant and animal kingdoms.

Special guest of the evening, Barbara Wiseman from The Earth Organization, informed those in attendance of the damage that is happening in the Gulf of Mexico from the Gulf Oil disaster and how it is not cleaned up.  And because of that, the Gulf is still in extremely bad shape, due to toxic chemicals that are still being sprayed, which are severely affecting the marine life, wildlife, and people living in the Gulf. However, Wiseman says that the organization has identified a solution to rectify the damages.

Michelle Stafford spoke to On-Air On-Soaps on why it was important for her to bring awareness of the organization to the soap community: “What people need to know is what is really happening in the Gulf.  It has been swept under the rug.  People have forgotten everyone in the Gulf.  There are people still dealing with this now, just like they did after Katrina.  We can’t keep on forgetting about people. It’s about us as a group and this country. We need to do something about this.  I am so moved about this cause, because people don’t know, and should know, that there is this toxic substance that in the water, and that oil is still in the water. Our marine life is dying and people have gotten sick. Everything is going to be found out. We will do something, but it has to happen with a group.  So by having this get-together tonight, I wanted to start something.  I brought soap actors with big twitter accounts! (Laughs).  But really, I invited those from daytime who are very environmentally and socially conscious.

You will be hearing more from those in attendance and some of your favorite daytime stars in the coming days on how you can become involved and help The Earth Organization and learn more.  For now you can visit www.theearthorganization.org for more information.

After the airing of his final scenes on General Hospital, and the news of Supernatural coming to an end, Matt tweeted:  “Tough day. Emotionally. My last episode of @GeneralHospital aired.

Matt Cohen Exits General Hospital

Dr. Griffin Munro, the former priest, is departing General Hospital as actor Matt Cohen made the decision to wrap his run on the ABC daytime drama series.

Cohen told TV Insider on his decision, “I did three years at the show. It was a great time and I had great fun playing the character, but I’m a guy who gets uncomfortable when he gets comfortable. I need to give Griffin a little rest right now. I talked to Frank (Valentini, executive producer). We’re leaving it very open-ended.”

The actor is now also focusing on directing and his first short film Mama Bear has been getting a solid response at film festivals

As to if he would return to his role as Griffin ever again, Matt teased: “Maybe I’ll pop into GH every once in a while? That’ll be up to Frank and the writers as to what we do.”

Matt came on to General Hospital back in 2016 and viewers learned that he was the son of Duke Lavery (Ian Buchanan), and was put in the orbit and became dear friend of Anna Devane (Finola Hughes), Duke’s true love.  Later, Griffin became romantically involved with Ava Jerome (Maura West) and then her daughter, Kiki (Hayley Erin).

Look for Cohen to exit this Friday on the March 22nd episode of GH.
