General Hospital’s Missed Opportunity



In a recent Daytime Confidential Podcast I suggested that it be great cross promotion opportunity for General Hospital to have admitted soap fan and Grey’s Anatomy star Chandra Wilson drop by Port Charles as a patient at General Hospital. My theory was that there is guest spot gold waiting to be mined by having Wilson portray her primetime character as a patient in the Port Charles emergency room.

Turns out I’m not the only one who thought having her guest on General Hospital could be a good idea. TV Guide Canada’s Nelson Branco is reporting that "she almost took a guest-starring role on GH during the Writers’ Strike."

Personally, I think having Wilson drop by General Hospital should still be an option on the table, even if it has to wait until the week after Grey’s Anatomy’s seaon finale in May and then promoting the hell out of during the season finale.

    Wonder why she turned it down? Most likely because of the strike. You know, if she is part of both unions, and SAG strikes (they are gonna take a vote on it, here we go again) daytime actors will be the only ones working, so who knows.

    True Jillian, but ain’t nuthin like the real thing, baby! Oh, what I would give to see her rip into Sonny or Jason. Or to see her and Diane in a scene together. Nope… I’m not going to do it. Until Guza gets his act together I don’t want her anywhere near that set!

    I’d love to see Chandra on for a guest stint, especially if it lasted a week where she arrives on a Friday in the er and then spends the next week in various stages of treatment and care to finally be released the following Friday. They always say that Doctor’s are the worst patients and I think that there is gold in a guest spot like that.

    DONT DO IT CHANDRA!!! Don’t do it!! I am NOT trying to see the REAL star of Grey’s Anatomy settle for goofy, everybody’s got their something tomfoolery while that mouthy Katherine Heigl books one romantic comedy after another. Girl call Tyler Perry! Well…after he settles this pesky union busting business!

    And The Nazi is not sassy! Sorry, but that term makes my bottom itch.  She is smart, together and razor sharp, but she is not "sassy". I am so tired of the "sassy" black character  always having to check the white characters. Epiphany would have been fired at an hospital across the U.S. for treating doctors the way she does and I can’t stand that whole Angry Black Woman schtick they pulled with her early on. Thank God they have mellowed her out. At least we know why Bailey is so anal, it’s all about the work for her. Epiphany is just a mean busy body, who needs to be put in her place.  Have we gotten anywhere since Mammy tied Scarlett’s whale-bone corset on Gone With The Wind and told her to eat every mouthful???
