GH Promo: Brenda Was Preggers and She Doesn't Want Sonny to Know!





Brenda's (Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo) secrets are finally spilling and the latest is as juicy as it can get! Ms. Barrett was knocked up during her time with Dante (Dominic Zamprogna). This promo is so good, I think it's best to let it speak for itself. Catch it after the jump!

I like it! I like that they're not being as predictable as I previously thought with Brenda's return. To my surprise...I think this is something I could actually get interested in...

Brenda doesn't want to talk about the baby and I don't want to hear about the baby!

OK so Brenda says she doesn't want Sonny to ever find out, was the baby his??? Cause even if she and Dante slept together (she was only in town for a few weeks) I can't picture the baby being his. There wouldn't be enough time. Unless the promo is showing flash backs from after Dante was guarding her and she came back to town to tell him but i doubt it.

I'm confused. Guza stated in one of his articles that Brenda did not need the baggage of a baby. I thought I read in Perkie's recaps, that Brenda fainted while being guarded by Dante three years ago? Is the baby the Balkan's or his son? Maybe Ric is the Balkan?

Liason I totally agree - I think the baby will be the balkans grandson and thats why they kept asking her where and why the dont just kill her. She killed the baby's father and then dante fell in love with her but she had to go off to have the baby in secret.

To be honest, I'm not the least bit shocked by this storyline. What I don't understand is everything else. If she was carrying Dante's baby, I thought it interesting if only because it would make Sonny look foolish and prove even more that Dante is indeed a hypocrite and his character was ruined for this storyline, not that I was much a fan of his ayway. But if she was carrying the Balkan's grandson, then wow, I could care even less and completely understand the ratings tumble. I guess I'll just have to see how it all plays out, if I can take it. Anything remotely intriguing is always either ruined or played out for much too long.

On its own merits, this does not look like a bad story as far as soaps are concerned. Like Carly said a long lost son having a past relationship with the love of his new found father's life could be good drama. If they had focused on this and NOT all the Rome for a month and silly Balkan crap, and not made Brenda so stupid and annoying, I could enjoy this story. BUT, since I and a lot of other loyal and long time viewers have been so beaten down by the crappy writing, the character assassinations, and just overall terribleness of this show over the past 8+ months I just can't get into it. I am not willing to give it the benefit of a doubt, or the slight suspension of logic, morality, and reality that sometimes accompanies enjoying soaps.

So Dante was "in love' with Brenda and covered up a justifiable homicide for her-well that sucks if you are a Dante fan. Or are like me a former huge fan, who's love for the character is suffering death by a thousand little cuts EVERYDAY. Everytime he lies for Sonny, gives him the benefit of a doubt, does/says something unnecessarily holier than thou or otherwise does something to compromise being the charismatic upstanding good guy that he was before his paternity was revealed as well as the fact of his gross overexposure and the way Lulu is written to look like an idiot drone with no life outside of him; I lose a little more respect for the character. With this, he becomes a liar-he has told Lulu she is the 2st and only girl he ever loved, so that is pretty effed up. And as far as the Michael coverrup, I never blamed him much because I thought he was an honest cop trying to do the right thing for his "brother" and the law; but now, since he has been willing to coverup NON-crimes in the past, then he looks like one of the worst hypocrites since Carly Corinthos Jacks! And I lessen my defense of him in regards to Michael going to jail, although is still blame Carly/Jason/Sonny 90% but that is down from 99%.

Brenda has been the most annoying and simultaneously boring and infuriating characters in all of daytime since her return. This secret is big, but the way she has been acting, the risks shes been willing to take, not telling Jason the truth, the whining, the screaming, etc., it has mad me hate her. I don't kow her from the 90's, I just remember her 02 stint, and being a HUGE Skye fan, I have resented her since then, but I was willing to give her a chance for the sake of the show and not wanting to go against the alleged masses who think she is the best thing ever on daytime. Her being okay with Sonny trying to blow up Johnny was the final nail in the coffin for me liking this character. I know that she is being written horribly and is not a true representation of the Brenda from the 90's, and I empathize with her fans, but what is on my screen now, is an awful character that I hate and feel no compassion for. Because of that, I have no real interest in her seemingly self induced problems.

As far as Sonny is concerned, I HATE him, so any story involving him starts with two strikes. Especially if it is made to make him look like a victim or the "betrayed" party. As weird and awkward as it may be, his ex dating a son he never knew about is no offense to him, and not such a big deal that they would need to be so unwilling to tell the truth about it. His reaction to all of this is probably what I look forward to the least!

As far as Carly goes, As down on Dante as I am, I am still not rooting for her. her vendetta against Lante is still fundamentally flawed in my view, and it is her not taking responsibility for the life she exposed Michael to. I have a soft spot for her ONLY because I love LW and SJB (TB was okay). I hate or disagree with 95% of what she does and says, so her running around town "exposing" other people who have done no where near the damage that she has, is a bit hard to take sometimes. But, her part in this is the least week of the story.

I sort of feel bad for Lulu, but because of the way the character has been written while in the pairing (post shooting), it is more my love of JMB that makes me feel bad for her than what is actually happening on the screen. I hate that everything that Carly and the idiot Spinelli have been saying about Dante is being made true, when a few months ago it wasn't, which makes her look like an fool.

Jason I don't hate, I'm just indifferent to. I think he treats Sam like crap, but since I don't like her at all, then that doesn't stir much emotion in me. His blind loyalty to Sonny is annoying but since I no longer hope for/care if he remembers being a Quartermaine and the fact that there are times when he puts others above Sonny, that also doesn't stir too much in me. I don't like him at all, but I don't care enough to actively hate him.

Having said all of that, a story with all those characters where I have NO ONW to root for, and the buildup to has been God awful, it is hard to even pretend to look forward to this story.

EET, I agree with you, this is not Dante's baby this is probably the Balkan's grandson ... Too bad I would have loved Sonny being Brenda's child grandpa.

At least there is no doubt anymore that Dante was in love with Brenda ... so in love that he was ready to raise another's man child with her ? Are you kidding me ?

However it shows what a jerk and a huge liar Dante is as I don't remember Lulu forcing him and begging him to say that she was his first love and that he had never said ILY to any other woman before ...
Dante knows that he is not Lulu first love (but that Johnny is) so what was the point of lying to Lulu at the time ? Did he do that just because lying is like a second nature to him ?

I so hope that Loo Loo is gonna get her brain back and send the bastard to hell. And this Lante nightmare will be O-VER ! At last !

So... question, fellow GH-ers:

If Jerry Jacks is the Balkan as is rumored to be, who would his long lost son and baby momma be??

Any guesses??

arielade, Jerry Jacks has been as close to confirmed to not be the Balkan as they possibly can. He is reportedly going to be involved somehow in the Balkan story, but he himself is not the Balkan.

NLG said 2 weeks ago on Twitter who the Balkan is and if you trust her (and apparently she got in trouble for saying it) it is NOT Jerry Jacks.

When is Vanessa Marcil leaving. i feel like she's been on my screen for a decade and it only been about 3 months. Guza writes her as the "all mighty god". When she is beyond annoying, She's part of EVERY STORYLINE and she is ruining my Lante.

qeeerm, I sooooo hope that Vanessa Marcil is going to ruin Lante !
That this horrible boring and forced couple will be over for good because if Loo Loo forgives that professional liar, she is really unredeemable ...

As much as Brenda is being ruined lately by condoning Sonny's actions for example she still have more brain and spine than stupid Lulu and still is more enjoyable to watch than Mrs "Dante is perfect / Dante is great".

And you don't seem to like that Brenda is "part of every storyline" but Dante has been part of every storyline possible for MONTHS !!! he is the airhog, and even since VM came back, DZ is still ahead of anybody else at GH.
14MONTHS IN A ROW THAT DZ HAS BEEN NUMBER 1 IN EPISODE COUNTS ! For a "newbie". Unbelievable. No wonder so many people can't stand the guy anymore ...

And BTW, Vanessa has signed a 2 year contract ...

I'm sorry, but when Dante told Brenda he loved her, I just burst out laughing if only because it just goes to show why I never liked his character in the first place, and how for those who DID like/love him, he was just ruined even further with those three little words. He sent his own brother to jail for murdering a woman who organized a hit that would get his father killed, which ini turn put him in a coma for a year, but he covers up a crime for a woman he had only known for A FEW WEEKS then hit the sheets with her!!!!???? What the flippin eff is that shiz? It makes NO SENSE! Not to mention, did he or did he not claim that LuLu was the love of his life or whatever, now, he was so in wuv wif Brenda and was ready to raise SOMEBODY's child with her? Gag.

My first thought after viewing the promo - Why can't Jason cross his arms across his chest anymore?

aramis270 I agree with you, i hope Brenda ruins Lante. Lulu use to be one of my favorite female characters (on any soap) but since she and Dante got really close she has been so boring. And I loved Dante when he first came to town and even when he and Lulu first got together but then it just started getting painful to watch. I'm just recently starting to like him more and that's mainly because he is finally having (most) scenes with other people.

I hope Lante break up. I don't no who I think they should each be with next but I wouldn't mind seeing Lulu and Johnny have something again. As long as she doesn't start pulling the whole "you need to leave the mob now" stuff. It would be funny to see Lulu do a complete 180 and switch (back) to a guy on the other side of the law.

Just wondering who do you actually like/watch on the show????

You seem to dislike (somewhat) Carly, Brenda, Sam, Jason, Sonny, Dante, Lulu, and Spinelli. I can't figure out how someone can watch GH everyday and not like any of these people. Esp now since at least one of them is in like every other scene. lol

Regarding Johnny and Lulu, I loved JoLu at the beginning (before she killed Logan then it soon became a nightmare) because at that time Lulu was arguing with Johnny, was not supporting everything he said and did and had some backbone. She was feisty and fun at the time (loved the rum scene when she was drunk in the catacombs).

Now I can't stand the girl. I can't stand that even though she always came crying to Carly who has always behaved like a second mother to Lulu, she betrayed her without blinking one sec, same with Jason who saved her life at least three times, same with Sonny who was there for her so many times when Luke was nowhere to be found (and I hate Sonny ...).

I can't stand that she never has an opinion anymore except "Dante is perfect", "Dante is great" and "I love Dante" ... that she has become so patronizing and obnoxious like her beloved one.
And I have always found Lante so forced and never natural on screen (especially during their tacky love scenes which seemed so rehearsed and choreographied).

JoLu revisited ? I have seen a lot of posts lately asking for it on several boards ...
I want Jolivia to end and FOR GOOD this time. I don't think Lisa/Johnny has a lot of potential considering how crazy in love with Patrick the chick is.
JoMax was always too self destructive to me but I love their friendship....
My first choice would be Brook/Johnny or Carly/Johnny (because they are smoking hot each time they share a scene) but JoLu ? why not as long as Lulu stops pretending to be this perfect girl and as you said don't start trying to change Johnny.
If we get the Old Lulu back who had no problem with the mob and was a kind of bad girl why not ... But she is so far away from that right now ... so boring, so "not Spencer" ...
At least JoLu had some very good chemistry and at a time Lulu was wearing the ugliest outfits ever so it should even be better with her new wardrobe.
So why not ? As long as it means the end of Lante and Jolivia ... Wink

More stuff to fast forward through. Brenda's return has been a complete and utter bomb, with the exception of throwing the Q family a bone for two seconds...
