Photo: JPI

This past Friday, Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea) was treated to a very special baby shower for her newborn on the way by some of her castmates: Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), Greg Rikaart (Kevin), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis) and Joshua Morrow (Nick).

The gathering was held at The Grove near CBS Television City, where Y&R tapes.

Attending were not only the hosts, but Missy’s other castmates including: Brytni Sarpy (Elena), Bryton James (Devon), Peter Bergman (Jack), Camryn Grimes (Mariah), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), and more.

On her Instagram, Melissa had some special shout-outs to those who worked to put together the baby shower for her: “I’m so lucky to have a job I love so much, playing a role I love so much, with THESE PEOPLE THAT I LOVE SO MUCH!! Beyond grateful. Thank you @e.c.hendrickson, @gregrikaart, @therealstafford, & @joshuamorrowyr for throwing me my work baby shower. I’m spoiled and I know it!!! Thank you guys, and thanks to all you amazingly supportive fans who watch the show, and have sent your love my way during this time. It will forever mean the world to me, @katrosar, and this new little man💙”

Take a look at some of the moments from the baby shower through our photo gallery below.

Now that Missy is on maternity leave from Y&R, share your well-wishes to her and dad-to-be Matt Katrosar via the comment section.

Congrats and blessings!! But, back to Y&R—-Sharon has no worries about her’missing’ daughter—-makes no sense. Yet, Adam is on her mind. Ok. Whatever. Jack is revisiting his teen years where he’s not thinking with his head—Hmmmm. I beg TPTB to please get rid of Sally and Tara. If the show wants to lose viewers, then keep them—–Sally is over-the-top annoying, and Tara’s face looks like she’s constantly constipated. The ridiculous pained expression on her face is not very attractive. The best thing to have happen would be to discover that the DNA test regarding Harrison’s paternity has been compromised. Thus,… Read more »

Celia: Yes, yes, yes, and Yes! Sharon just needs to cut Rey loose and jump on Adam’s, uh, hope to have them reconcile. Sally acts like a cartoon character, every look and gesture is too big and melodramatic. Tara, the Queen of Pale Polyester, is beyond low. She’s not a fun villain, like Victor or like Ava Jerome used to be. Tara’s just annoying; whether it’s constipation or just catatonia I don’t even care anymore. Just get RID OF HER! As far as Mariah’s absence, you know we’re in trouble when Tessa is the most clued in that something’s wrong.… Read more »

OMG, Soaphound!!—I’m with you 100%!! You’re too funny!! You describe Sally to the letter—-if her mouth did not exaggeratedly move all over her face, she’d be less antipathetic. Tara, Tara, Tara—firstly, if TPTB wanted to impress the viewer and Kyle with a femme fatale, a full-figured character would be fitting for the role. She has a very adolescent-boy-like body, lacking that certain je ne sais quoi element and come hither characteristic/quality. My Italian mother-in-law calls her the fake “Veronica Piangente”, the pius woman—this saint, would wipe the tears and sweat off the afflicted’s faces — thus, “piangente”, meaning, crying.

PS—Soaphound, I’ve never liked Tessa—ever!!— Yes, I know she supposedly loves Mariah to death, pardon the pun, but Tessa is the ‘death’ of her. I’ve had my suspicions about her forever—-is she aware of something? Does she know Mariah’s kidnapper? Was her disappearance orchestrated and executed by Tessa? Hmmmm. Gee—I’m watching as I’m typing—-Poor, poor, vitimized Tara—what a sycophant!! Does her raspy voice and lamentation equate to Circe’s siren song? No way!! More fool Kyle and his father —to fall for such guile makes them look like idiots!! Kyle is young—understandable. But, Jack? I wonder if Jack is just playing… Read more »

Oh Celia, I WISH Jack could figure these vixens out on his own. But alas, when has he ever? I do, however, love watching Phyllis in battle mode. FINALLY, these two vindictive users are starting to sweat. No thanks to the Abbott men. Heck, Amanda is more clued in than Kyle or Jack. I bet Mrs. Martinez is also more aware than they are!

Yeah—-right on, Soaphound!! LOL. I am not a fan of Jack’s —-Y&R is my favorite soap, however. I’ve been watching since the tender age of forever!! I guess ( and this is so redundant on my part) Sharon’s and Nick’s love reeled me in. I don’t quite recall the year, but I was a pre-teen with stars in my eyes — I don’t know why, but Jack still rubs me the wrong way. So, if he is blind to both Sally’s and Tara’s machinations, then he deserves whatever befalls him as a consequence. These writers are turning him into a… Read more »

Thanks, Celia, for including Kelly in that group of extraordinary actresses. She’s become my favorite GH lady, along with Maura West. And Michelle Stafford’s recent performances are due for legendary status. The other day when she hollered at Jack, “This is MY DAUGHTER’S life they’re messing with!”, you could see the tears forming and her face lighting on fire. It was an ECSTATIC moment.

Oh su000, if I hear the name of poor, delicate, sensitive little Harrison invoked once more..!! He’s gonna be “permanently scarred” from Ashland’s little tantrum. Really? How about when he finds out what a treacherous schemer his mommy is? Between this spoiled little brat and the “Wiley Mania” that’s infected Port Charles, I feel like today’s kids are going to grow up with the strength and resilience of a wet paper towel.

hi Soaphound 🙂
Harrison won’t remember any of it..
and-
he won’t be scared for life..
Harrison will be a millionaire by age 16- lol
He will be well to do..
I don’t know know how old he is but by looking at him
and me trying to recall anything at thata ge. nope, I got nada! lol

As usual, SusieQ— you are forever the in-your-face poster—I love it!! You make my day!!
Yup, Sharon should untie her wedded apron strings and jump Adam. I wasn’t into them at first because of the age difference? But, hey–they work!! Ray is too tame–
I am almost certain Harrison is not Kyle’s —unless the role of Kyle will be recast.

So good to hear your voice again! Once more, you are spot-on with the misguided storylines for characters that ought to know better.

I’m still waiting for Sally to connect with Adam once he returns to the “dark side” where he belongs.

Missed story ideas: Ashland and Tara “faked all of this” just to get everything from both the Newmans’ and Abbotts’ businesses. And, as ugly as it sounds– the Amanda story should find that her grandfather is more than her grandfather…. never mind.

Hey, Ron—-long time, my friend. I see you are doing well—-missed your satirical wit. I just noticed your comment, albeit I am not sure it was meant for me. I haven’t been receiving any notifications—I have to go to the site to find out. More houses are going up in this street ( it’s actually a circle) and my husband and I think it’s interfering with the cable system. My phone has a mind of its own—so does my tablet. Anyway—WOW—-you surely give a mind boggling spin’s story—–veeeery inteereesting!! LOL Wouldn’t that stir the already fetid pot!! DOUBLE WOW about… Read more »

Hello, again– yes, the Sutton inference was where I was going. I couldn’t seen any other reason why Amanda’s mother would be willing to go to prison to save his neck except she really truly wants to keep something kept secret.
Cable systems and missed notifications: welcome to the 21st century. Here’s hoping “infrastructure” will happen!
Don’t recall when we last corresponded, but did I tell you my eldest ended up choosing Syracuse? Loves it… we love it… would love to move out there somewhere!
Take care… I don’t like misusing these boards.

I certainly do remember, Ron—-glad your son has settled in—liking a College’s ambiance; feeling part of its “walls”, per se, is right up there with a student’s well-being—Wish him the best in all his endeavors.
I love both Syracuse proper, and its outskirts. It’s very reminiscent of some parts of Toronto (Canada) and environs.
I wouldn’t mind living there myself.
We are human, Ron—-sometimes we get caught with personal conversations—no worries—albeit, your thoughts about certain people on Y&R are still circling in my head. LOL—can’t wait until it all plays out!!

Ron Sally and Adam? That’s kind of out in left field isn’t it, but on the Soaps anything can and does happen. My money is on Rey and Chelsea only because Rey has been singing her praises for a while now, even before escorting her on her trip to be with her mother. Even Sharon noticed, who by the way is looking a little different to me, some facial work maybe? This Tara and Ashland thing is a mystery for sure, especially if he’s faking his illness, poor Victoria. I can not wait for Phyllis to bust those two bitches,… Read more »

Thank you for the laughs regarding Phyllis. Tara, Sally– 3 witches going after one another!
I do agree with you that Rey and Chelsea are rather chummy; it’ll be an interesting storyline when Melissa returns from the pregnancy. A friend mentioned something about Adam and Chloe growing closer– that would be an interesting twist. If that’s the case, then he’s using her to prove she helped Chelsea frame him. We shall see.

Hey, Ron,—-the more I think about your words, the more I see the scheme unfolding.
I think you are right—Ashland and Tara are working together—-even going as far as tampering with Harrison’s DNA test and he proposing marriage to Victoria.
Golly Gee, LOL…..Chances are Ashland is broke—that’s why he’s selling real estate and notable art.
Exactly the reason why Lauren is having difficulties with Tara not producing “documents”—
So intricate, yet so simple—Voila’

That is one party I’d love to have attended. All the fun ladies and gorgeous Greg and Joshua. Soap stars seem so much happier and supportive of one another than film stars. When I read some of the bios of stars like Steve McQueen and James Dean, I get shivers. All that paranoia and neuroses. Of course there are also stars renowned for their kindness and humility with coworkers and crew, like Elizabeth Taylor, Bette Davis, Natalie Wood. Soap stars just seem like more fun!

Congrats to Melissa and hubby. So exciting to be waiting for their new son. So nice remembering her, Elizabeth Hendrickson and Rebecca Buddig, who were all together on AMC.Too bad Billy Miller who played Melissa’s psychotic brother on that same show wasn’t there. Of course he would have stolen the attention away from the baby business. I really miss him playing Billy or anyone, actually. This Billy has been getting on my nerves lately, always sneaking around trying to dig up dirt on someone and will never believe he’s as much in love with Lily as he professes.There is nothing… Read more »

Who will take home the gold at Sunday night’s 73rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards?  Well, from the looks of it .two heavy favorites going into it are Ted Lasso in the comedy categories, and The Crown in the dramatic categories, but as we have seen on previous Emmys there may be upsets afoot.

The broadcast’s executive producer, Ian Stewart, confirmed an opening number, when he previously told Deadline, the number “is going to be a lot of people participating, singing, rapping.  It’s hopefully going to be a very impactful start, a ton of fun.”

The Primetime Emmys will have nominees in attendance, with a more limited amount virtually, and those who have tickets can stay in the venue through the whole show, unlike the Grammys or Oscars were those nominated were ushered in and out.  Look for the Emmys to take place outside the theatre under a tent.

One Life to Live alum Renée  Elise Goldsberry (Ex-Evangeline) will be competing in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for her role in Hamilton.  Another OLTL alum, Jonathan Groff (Ex-Henry), is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for his role in Hamilton, as well.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Courtesy/ABC

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.
