TV Guide's Michael Logan chatted with General Hospital's head writer Bob Guza about ABC daytime's most anticipated return, that of Vanessa Marcil. Guza gives the skinny on how long Brenda will hang her hat in Port Charles.
Let's clarify. You were quoted at the Daytime Emmys saying you have Vanessa for two years, but since then there's been conflicting word on that. What's the deal?
Bob Guza: We have Vanessa for at least a year and she and I have talked about going longer. I don't want people to think this is some six week in-and-out. Brenda will be heavily involved with all the characters she had important relationships with, especially Sonny [Maurice Benard], Jax [Ingo Rademacher], Jason [Steve Burton] and Robin [Kimberly McCullough]. I don't want people to think this is just a Brenda-Sonny story. If there was ever a time when Sonny really needs Brenda, this would be it, but all three of her romances will be revisited.
Guza also weighs in on the internet buzz regarding if Brenda will return with a little, dimpled child belonging to Sonny.
There's been buzz that she somehow secretly gave birth to Sonny's child. Anything to that?
Guza: I'm not going to discount any story but, let me put it this way, Brenda is not coming on canvas with that particular baggage, okay? I'm not saying she won't leave the show with that particular baggage. She's coming with something way more explosive than that.
Damn that Guza! He's tighter with info than a corset on Rush Limbaugh!
