Kristoff, so glad you are doing so much better…Keep hanging on to GOD’s hand and stay close to your family and friends…Us fans are your family too and we LOVE YOU Kristoff…Enjoy the holidays and GOD BLESS you and your family…

I haved really enjoyed Kristoff’s recent performances, especially with Victoria. He really sees how rotten and soulless she’s becoming and is trying to offer her a lifeline back to humanity. Very well-acted scenes. I hope Neil flees Newman Enterprises before he’s trapped in the hatred and scheming that seems to be the new normal in that family.

Be strong God will never let his kids go away have faith stay focused we love you we need you okay

Good luck to you KSJ I know to well about depression just remember your son would not want this for you be strong you have family that live you and cast members and friends that will help let them.

I’m glad he’s doing better. We’re pulling for you Kristoff!

So glad you are doing better, life can sometimes be hard and going forward is the right way to go

Very heartfelt message…I’m glad that social media can do so much good in the midst of the hatred too many people spew. When it’s used for love and kindness…social media can reach out across miles, races, religions and speak to the human experience. Loss, grief…all too real for all of us. It’s important to carry each other.

Blessing, on what sounds positive. Kris, I am not removing you from the Prayer Wheel, just moving to a different location….Returning To My Life!

#MiraclesDoHappen
Amen

My thoughts and prayers are with you

I am happy to here about your progress, I pray God continue blessing you! Hang in there,

The ever-expanding cast of the streaming soap opera, The Bay, has announced two new additions for its upcoming 9th season, including Days of our Lives favorite Patrick Muldoon (ex-Austin Reed). TV fans also know Patrick Muldoon from his role as Richard Hart on Melrose Place.

In story, The Bay will bring Caleb McKinnon’s parents into the mix. Caleb is played by Daytime Emmy-winner and Outstanding Supporting Actor nominee this year, Mike Manning.

According to Deadline, Muldoon, along with Jennifer Taylor (Two and a Half Men), will play Caleb’s ultra-conservative parents.

Giovanni Mazza On Contract at General Hospital: What Are Your First Impressions?

This week, General Hospital introduced newcomer Giovanni Mazza in the role of Giovanni Palmieri, who apparently is Brook Lynn’s (Amanda Setton) second cousin, one removed or so the story goes.

The character of Gio showed up at Brook Lynn’s wedding to Harrison Chase (Josh Swickard) and played the violin at the ceremony. As has been previously reported, Mazza in real-life is a professional violinist and actor.

Upon making his first appearance on the ABC daytime drama series back on May 15th, fans wondered if Gio will be sticking around and that was confirmed by the closing credits of the May 17th episode where Mazza’s name is included along with other contract players.

When the news of Mazza’s casting was announced, the talent young man took to his Instagram and shared the good news, expressing, “I am so honored, grateful, and ecstatic to announce the big news! The biggest thank you to General Hospital for bringing me.” He closed his sentiments with “So much love and joy to my new fam! YAY!!! ”

Commenting on his post included new castmates Evan Hofer (Dex) saying, “Happy to have you brother,” plus Tabyana Ali (Trina), Eden McCoy (Joss) and ABC executive Nathan Varni who said, “Congratulations! Welcome to GH!

During the May 17th episode, Gio had an exchange with Dex, where he mentioned that his father was in the military back in early 2000’s.  Previously, Gio revealed to Chase that his father died in the military when he was young. So this begs the question, who is Gio’s dad?

What were you first impressions of Giovanni Mazza in the role of Gio? Who do you think he might be romantically involved with and might be also related to other than the Cerullos? Comment below.
