Rebecca Herbst STAYING With General Hospital?!




What a good way to wake up in the morning. I go on Facebook and I have a message from loyal DC reader Gush900 asking me if I'd heard the "big GH news". I wipe my eyes, yawn, then type back "What big GH news?" I start to wonder if maybe Genie Francis is returning to General Hospital as a dark-haired mob moll named Dahlia Concepcion? So then I go get a cup of coffee, come back and log into Twitter and what do I see, but this gem tweeted early this morning by ABC Soaps in Depth:

Breaking news: Becky Herbst (Liz) NOT leaving #GH? You heard it hear first! Details soon....

Looks like the fans, they have a' SPOKEN!

Marezi you know your my gal and maybe I shouldnt have lumped him in, but his fan fic came in the same environment as I was reading stuff like this

http://twitter.com/#!/Crispy829

note this posters comments about kellys looks, how she should go back to being a bunny but she cant because shes too ugly now, how are the jalamers taking this, rebecca should get the dwts treatment and she would win without a revote and the best one - the whole sos schtick where Liz and jason are the moral pairing to chose and anything else is sticking to glorifing sleaze.

Instead of firing talented actors, why not get rid of middle management and allow the EP and HW to co-run each soap? Is there really a need for CGI, big budget stunts (like the bus accident!)and massive advertising for little to no pay off?

Liz is a legacy character and should not be pushed aside because someone over at ABCD doesn't know how to manage their budget. Yes, the economy is horrible, but you would think once Brenda's return turned out to be a bomb that they would stop with the crazy bus stunts that don't pay off or drive additional story.

As far as story for Liz, she has 2 paternity secrets, her rapist could have been released on an early parole, she could be a Counselor at the rape crisis center and works with Michael. She's an artist, mother, and nurse. Liz can be involved in hospital and mob stories. The character is not limited to WTD story lines.

Erica Slezak is about to celebrate 40 years next month with OLTL. Susan Lucci has been with AMC for 40 years. These women have not been pushed away for "story dictated" reasons and neither should RH. Viki, Erica and Liz are ALL legacy characters on their particular soaps.

The turning point for my dislike of Liz was when she was in the crypt with Zander, she wanted Jason. Jason goes to her aprtment and finds her and Zander.
======
RH told the writers that her character would never be with Zander and JFP ordered the Liz/Zander sex. Note: I read about this a few years ago from someone who went to a RH fan event.

I like both Sam and Liz, in their own ways. I honestly wish both of them would get good storylines away from Jason, but I think we all know that's not going to happen. I'd love for GH to steal ME away from OLTL and bring him to GH for a triangle with Sam and Jason and he could actually play a character with some depth again, but that probably won't happen either.

I hate to see anyone get fired, so I'm glad she's not getting fired. I gotta say though, that was a huge public slap in the face they gave her letting her go like they did... I'm surprised she would want to come back to a place that would do that to her. But, steady incomes are sometimes more important than one's sense of self. I know that first hand.

Maybe if TC leaves, they could put her with Jax (if the actor that plays him doesn't get the axe now that him and Carly look like they're splitsville)... He needs a steady family for once. And let's face it, even if Carly doesn't want Jax, she's not going to want Liz to have him. So there could be tons of drama there! Or bring on a hot new doctor for her.

So JS let me get this straight. Becky as Liz (and by extension her fans) have been treated unfairly because for "years" she has been written in a negative light and she should be written "correctly" as the "good girl" WE ALL love and to say hey maybe she should go a little dark is wrong because thats just more negative light, more unfairness and more OOC

BUT

wishing that Sam becomes an early rachel cory style vixen is not treating Kelly as Sam (and by extension HER fans) unfairly and isnt writing the character incorrectly since she apparently isnt the heroine that saved the metro court hostages, nor is she the heroine that tackled the text message killer and fought him off when Alexis was in danger, nor the heroine that fended off Anthony's henchmen, saving carly and assisting in Alexis's rescue - she isnt the heroine WE ALL love and writing her with no redeeming qualities (which is how VW described her own character in the early days) would NOT be OOC.

This is the inconsistency that I object to. Its always been the argument that stories would be better if character x;s story was given in whole cloth to Liz. I certainly dont want to be rooting for that version of sam and that isnt the sam thats been on my screen for years. Jamey may be joking but he might as well kill her off if that is how he would write her.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Another_World_(TV_series)
***********************************************************************

EET - I really don't know where this came from. I wasn't writing about characters being written OOC or about which way the writers should go with Liz and Sam. I merely pointed out that Jamey wasn't seriously calling for Sam's death....he wants her on the show.

And by the way...Sam came on this show as a con artist, she slept with two men on the same night, threatened to abort her baby, tried to kidnap a little girl who was not hers, slept with her cancer stricken mother's husband, and endangered 2 little kids on more than one occasion. Sam has never been the "good girl". Whereas Liz, except for her little stunts as a teen pre-rape, has been the "good girl". She has made mistakes, but nothing compared to the level of Sam. A few rights don't make Sam a "good girl" and a few wrongs don't make Liz the "bad girl".

And why kill off Sam if she is going to be the "bad girl"? Soaps have always had the character you love to hate. They are usually the most popular characters and are given the meaty material. What's wrong with that? I think that Kelly plays the "bad girl" much better than she plays the "good girl". Just like, for example, Natalia Livingston could never play a "bad girl" (IMHO).

I love NLG as much as I love RH/Liz, KMc/Robin, and even more than I love BBa/Johnny and I wouldn't want to lose any of them and as someone who was layed off of a job I loved so that the company would be more attractive to buyers, I know that layed off hurts emotionally as much as fired.

And by the by, lower budgets can lead to creativity which GH could use.

Congrats to Becky! I just now hope they will write for her. Give the girl a good storyline and not one that involves jake dying. I will be soooo mad if thats the case.

Can't wait to read more news of this. I would love to hear from her though I still don't trust those idiots in charge.

EET, the gathering of the group wouldn't work because we don't know anyone's salary level, I mean who would have thought that after the first paycut Eric Braeden was still making 1.5 million dollars? Steve Burton's most recent contract seemed to go down to the wire and we know ABC sent out a casting call and said it was the norm during Kelly Monaco's last negotiation. Do SBu and MB make the same or is one making more, are KeMo and LW making as much as the guys or each other? Are those four the top of the heap or is VMG getting as much, where does DZ fit into the equation? What about IR and TC who seemed like leads for awhile but not so much lately? Jamey's blind item can't have been news to Brian Frons how long ago did he know this was coming? How many actors have joined the show since VMG returned 6 months ago? One could argue that these actors cost less money than the vets but how is that calculated? And if saving money is priority one: my question remains: why start with the supporting cast? why not make her recurring, once a week at the hospital, and occassional mentions from Nik and Lucky. The firing and I am not sure it's going away made less sense than the reveal of Suzanne as the Balkan's wife who had direct access to Brenda for 3 years. The only thing that could make less sense is her having kidnapped this mystery baby.

As for what Liz could be doing I'll defer to the suggestions many others have made that have nothing to do with hanging at the Nurse's Station although since 90% of Lisa's sl takes place there I wouldn't discount it as an action packed locale. Smile

Just wanted to add my two cents:

In regards to the fanbase wars made known on page 3 of this thread, I have to agree with both aramis and EET. I try not to stick my nose in too much in regards to sides, but the back and forth on Twitter and the nasty comments on the ABC-SID website are just nerve-wracking. It’s clear that just from reading a few posts from folks on other sites that there’s enough crazies on both sides of the fence to make us sane ones few and far between.

I have friends on both sides, so I just want to say that though I’m glad Becky’s staying, I don’t want the insane fanwars to continue in the manner they have. People are threatening people and it’s going too far. This is an actress on a TV show. I hated when I found out the original news because I love Becky and she had just lost her job, but I would never think to take that out on someone I either didn’t know or hardly knew just because they don’t share my preference of character. I don’t condone that, and I know others on both sides who don’t condone it either, cause it’s a definite headache. Just remember, it’s individuals who are loopty-loop. Luckily, they don’t represent all of us. Most of us on DC can be respectful to one another. Well, there are a few feather rufflers, but they’ve been pretty quiet as of late, lol. That said, I certainly don’t want another person sacrificed in the same manner. I personally never hoped for that and I know others don't want that either. All we can wish for is better writing across the board. That’s what I think many of us are hoping for.

And shancy, I must respectfully disagree with Becky as Sarah. I couldn’t take that. I hated that character. I didn’t mind the actresses, but I thought both versions were boring, and if soaps can attempt to redeem rapists, murderers, baby snatchers like Adam on Y&R, cheaters--that would include just about everyone on every soap ever--and all of the above, I think a character like Liz can take the heat and still come out of the oven fully cooked instead of half-baked, lol! Big smile

Quote:
JFP ordered the Liz/Zander sex.

Not surprised. Folks are still pissed off at her stupid decision to kill off GL’s Maureen and still accuse her solely of AW's Frankie demise.

And since it was mentioned already, I'll piggyback: Natalia was a terrible bad girl. I couldn't stand the character of Rebecca, from beginning to end, because it was so terribly executed and she wasn't even really bad! Wearing a leather jacket and hat and trying to look mean all the time at your current boyfriend's ex wife does not make you bad. She was just annoying. Natalia does good-girl better. And I love Natalia to death, she's as sweet as pie and as beautiful as all get out, but she just can't play a bad girl to save her life.

This smells REALLY fishy... I dont know if its because she was fired and we heard nothing and then BAM shes back again..

She was supposedly fired for storyline reasons and something tells me she was hired back to advance another storyline.

I really dont think they were ever listening to the fans, if anything Maurice and cast were the ones that saved that poor girls job..

I do agree with some other posters that someone else is going to get fired in lieu of her being hired back.. WHO IS IT.. TBA...

Kelly played the bad girl AND the good girl successfully on PC. As for Sam, except for the hotel fire sleeping with two guys stuff, the abortion and the con artist past that was suppose to be a past that was a. forced on her by her parents or b. forced on her by the abusive boyfriend and c. she had done for her brother and for the boat so she could be free of it all, the rest of the stuff you mentioned all happened during the character assassination of 07. If one WTD storyline and thinking about having an abortion makes you the bad girl then the whole canvas is nothing but bad girls.

my point to your post was that when I said it would be good story for liz to go dark if they kill off jake, I got push back on it how that was ooc and abusive to the fans, then liz fans like jamey say make sam the villain and I am told to see that as a good meaty thing. HUH? if its such a good meaty opportunity for a character to be dark, then how come liz fans hate her manipulating the hell out of nik or jason and getting in one of the womens face? Of course you want that for sam - thats what y'all want because that frees jason to be with liz and for sam to be the nuisance bug flying around. It reduces her to being the Lisa to their scrubs. Thats not who sam is now, its not who she ever was except for that 3 or 4 month assasination to prop Jiz, and its not wrong for me to want my favorites written IN CHARACTER. Plus it negates everything thats been on screen for the last year - that Jason is happy to be back with Sam, that she is his priority and comes FIRST, that they are stronger now than ever. Why would sam turn villianous when she has it all - the career she wants, the relationship she wants, the mother and sisters shes always wanted, the friends and now to complete the picture the baby shes long long long wanted.

I am not afraid kelly will get fired or laid off, I am fatigued by the gloating from SOME fans that feel they forced this and now they are going to force liason on tptb. And I am worried for JE, BBr, and NLG. I think Nancy will ultimately be fine, but losing either of the other two would break my heart. I would still watch, which i guess dimishes my hold over tptb and I wont write a bazillon letters, but it would make me as sad and disappointed as liz fans were over becky.

Ack I give up - we can all think of a number of storylines for any character. My point is that at the moment the 50% was announced, the 3 that immediately come to mind and really I hate to say this but 4 that didnt have story that would be difficult to write them out of are nik, liz, spin and johnny. How on earth would you write lets say carly out within a month without creating storyline havoc? She suddenly hates brenda so much that she leaves her son thats in therapy and her other son thats in a cast and I guess her infant too and leaves? Short of killing her off theres little that makes sense because shes in EVERY story. Brenda is in every story. The only tricky thing with liz and nik would be the kids. Johnny and spin could be written out without disturbing much of anything. Me saying that doesnt mean that I couldnt come up with a lot of things they COULD be doing but its like a jenga puzzle, at the time those 4 were at storyline odds where they could be easily pulled out of the equation logically.

Fan 4-Now thanks for a great post. AMEN.

=================================================

These are the kinds of fans that are not good for any actor in my opinion. These are the types that lead to Becky having threats against her family or Kelly having to have body guards because people threaten bodily harm or the stalking of David Letterman, John Cusack and so many others.
These are also the type of people I would not read any of their tweets or engage them on twitter or Facebook. I hope I never know anyone that far removed from the real world. I have read a few posts on other sites and it gets ugly. That is when I back out of the room. I get mouthy enough as it is and I don't need to be around that because the hate does grow, it is like mass hsyteria. I have to step away. This place is one of the nicer places to post. Not so much hate here. Theres some (me included sometimes) but nothing like some other sites.

As many hateful remarks about Sam/Kelly, and Liz/Becky there are just as many good ones too. I sometimes forget what my mother tried to teach me, when I would say something negative she always made me say something nice too. Even if it was "She wears nice shoes". (I really hated that, LOL)

the one consolation of RH leaving was my confidence that she would find work and she could finally escape the Wrath of B.F. Frons and so if the writing is going to remain the same, I will not be happy, I don't have specifics as some others but bad writing is like pornography: I know it when I see it.

as for JE and BBr, JE also deserves better writing and a story that doesn't wash, rinse, repeat with each TG vacation and return, it already feels as though she is on recurring which is ridic for an actress who used to drive story on this show

now my feelings for BBr are different: this should have been an arc for which she was hired for a finite period of time and therefore Lisa leaving for "storyline dictated reasons" would have made sense and still would unless Lisa is given one of those rewrites about which we keep hearing; I don't think it would have qualified as a firing though now that she has a contract, it would

Erica took the words out of my mouth: "At the moment they announced the 50%..." It doesn't matter if it isn't GH that got the slash, because the point is from that point on my thinking changed forever. And it's sad, too. The other day I read an MSN article in which VMG bragged that her wedding dress was by Oscar de La Renta. That pissed me off. And what is that statue in Sonny's office? Is that a beaver? Can they get their money back for that? And oh my gosh, I can't believe I'm actually going to say this...Hold on, I have to work myself up for it...if TIIC really want to send a message, it starts with Anthony Geary. Don't get me wrong, AG is THE very best actor in daytime, and his body of work is brilliant. But if would be outrageous for him to NOT retire, and continue to get away with the stuff he does now. 50% is enough to make a fan take notice!

Apparently I need to get on more to keep up with the back and forths!

First off, I would LOVE to see Jason and Liz paired together again and I am not sorry for having that opinion. If RH is truly staying and they give her character a great s/l to work with, there is always a possibility that it could happen again. Doesn't mean it will. But there is also the possiblity that Jason and Sam will part ways with out the reunion of Liason. It's a soap after all.

Soap couples rarely last forever. Last time Jason and Liz were together they professed their love for each other many times over (as I recall) and talked about not loving anyone else the way they had ever loved each other and were even going to get married. Then tragedy strikes and one thing leads to another and they suddenly have NOTHING to do with each other. That is pure crap. They went from loving one another so much it hurts one day to not even knowing the other exists the next day. Then Jason is suddenly into Sam again. I call BS there just because Liz does have history with Jason and a child. It is crap that they just suddenly stopped communicating for several years. They were friends before they became a couple and it really irritated me that they suddenly didn't exist to each other, even as friends.

TPTB know that these are two popular couples and they use that to their advantage. So Jason is with Sam right now- I don't like it and I never will. That doesn't mean I am being hateful towards the actors/actresses involved or wishing for Sam to be killed off or written out. It's just not my cuppa! But lets be honest here- Jasam fans (most anyways) would be wishing for Liason's split should that couple find their way back again. It doesn't mean they are hating on the people playing the characters. They are just not digging the fictional couple.

I am sad to see (on both sides) that there are some people that take their love for FICTIONAL characters so far as to threaten the people playing them. That is just sick and unneeded. From what I understand KeMo and RH are friends offset.

Liz has made errors and bad judgments just like every other soap diva ever written. I can see her being catty, but downright evil or hateful? Nope. I am also rather distressed that she is being written as the type to mess with someone else's pregnancy. While she may have cheated or been a hellraiser she would NOT put an innocent child at risk, especially since she knows the pain of losing a child herself. I think good girl Sam does have redeeming qualities, but everytime she goes out to help someone or do something independent and heroic she ends up getting hurt, kidnapped, or attacked in some other way. I mean the woman wears heels to stakeouts...I just don't get heroine from that, but that is my opinion. That being said I actually find her watchable when she interacts with her mother and sisters.

Liz shouldn't have to be bad for Sam to be good and vice versa. We have Carly to be somewhat of a bad girl running around scheming with her ridiculous plots and butting into everyone else's affairs (this is not a shot at Carly fans at all-she is just eccentric and entertaining to watch that way). Liz and Sam should be able to be their own characters without TPTB dragging one or the other through the mud.

Lastly, I must apologize for the quality of the post- it is late Smile

MY Take on all this..........

Budget cuts forced them to fire RH? BULL.
AG works 6 months out of the year. For a hefty amount it was reported.
VM I can guarantee was lured back with BIG Cash Cash Cash
Sonny, Jason, Carly ARE the show. So we know they are getting paid big bucks.

I am NOT a fan of RH. I am a fan of Jason, Sonny, Carly. However, like any corporation RH firing had nothing to do with "budget cuts". What happened to her is what happens in corporate america all across the country.
TPTB took a good look at their #'s and realized they need RH. Probably more than she needed them.
I hope she holds out for not only a huge raise, but a contract to make TPTB look even stupider than they are.

EET, if you Google Rachel Davis, you will see that she was one of the most popular chracters of all time. Kelly has the same dark, smoldering good looks as a young Robin Strasser, who played the part. The Rachel character was created by Agnes Nixon, who borrowed from her then unsold All My Children bible and was based on a little known character called Erica Kane, so yeah, I don't think my suggested Sam be written like a young Rachel Davis would be a detriment to the character. Furthermore, Rachel actually became so popular that she was redeemed by the love of Mac Cory and became the show's top heroine. I have never bought Sam as a heroine the way GH has written her, but no, I would never get rid of her because I know she's popular and so is Kemo. I have always said I want Sam and Liz pitted against each other.

Thanks to all the peeps who read ALL my tweets and came back here to clearly show I was making a joke storyline about Jason and Johnny opening fire on Sam (as if that would ever happen, seriously) and that I would want to morph her into a love to hate villainess.

I want this to be true and moreover, I want this to be indicative of the powers that be finally seeing the show is more than just mob. There were plenty of active fan who love Elizabeth with Nik, Lucky, Jason, or just as a mother on the show... But the distinct thing is she isn't JUST tied to the mob but rather is one of those rare characters with ties on ALL SIDES of GH from hospital to mob, from Spencer to Cassidine, Jacks to Corinthos, from PCPD to ELQ and so on.

Her story lines were never limited to point she had to be written off. On the contrary, her rich history and ties to so many means her story lines could be UNLIMITED.

Congrats to Becky and her fans, hopefully Becky's upcoming storylines will be pleasing to you.

I would like to echo Marezi, and say that I hope all the Becky fans turn on their TVs now. If you turned off your TV when we thought Becky was leaving, please turn your TV back on now that she's staying.

While I feel like this could be a positive for GH, I hope that we all remember that as a result of this one or more of our actors will probably be leaving the show in Becky's place. That is sad and unfortunate, but true. The actors that could leave have fans that are just as passionate as Becky's fans...

As far as the Liz / Sam debate, it baffles me. Really and truly. One does not have to be good, and one does not have to be bad. Just like in life, there are shades of gray. That's ok. Legacy characters are generally on soaps for such a long period of time, that odds are they are going to do something that is a little less than ethical. Nature of the biz. Just because they do does not mean they are written out of character or incorrectly. Hell, Becky came on this show 14 years ago. Are any of us the same person that we were 14 years ago? I sure as hell am not. Have Idone things that I regret, and that others may not agree with? Absolutely.

The question I always ask myself is are the character's actions believable. Not necessarily if I think they are right or wrong, but do the make sense given the character's history? As long as that is being done, then eventually every character will cycle through times as a villain or hero. Bottom line is, if someone is on a soap for 14 years, and they are going to grow and interact with a canvas of characters in a realistic way, this is a necessity.

Stereotyping Liz or Sam as good or bad is counterproductive, one-dimensional, and boring. Shades of gray, shades of gray.

I just wanted to share my joy of this news. It literally made my day. Becky fans succeeded in their efforts and this shows that audience's voice do matter and that choice of fans on the show, does count. It makes me, as a Becky/Liz fan feel humbled. I do recognize tptb's wise decision to right this wrong and bring Becky back. I just do not get the delay there is for official release of this news, and I know they are trying to come up with some cover for their reason for this, but we all know that they made a mistake. It would make me respect them more if they actually admitted that they made one.
The longer the delay, the longer there is a building of a feeling that's opposite of that.
I also wanted to comment on jmoney's comment above about RH. This, imo, was a bad decision to begin with, and tptb has finally recognized that. If there's anything budget-wise, then they should quit hiring newbies, as it contradicts the 2nd cover they gave for RH's exit. The 1st being is B.S. of s/l dictated when Liz has much more of a story to tell and I have sent some of my own ideas, to them as well. This is tptb wising up and recognizing the voice of fans and something where agenda sometimes, as well, can be undermined.
Now, back to the article, I really hope now that they give Liz a storyline of her own, that all of us can see her in. I hope that she can play a part in Michael's storyline, which could be good if tptb gave it a try. The trashing of her character hopefully stops and she is given a good character-integrated storyline. She could have a love interest in someone like Ronnie, which could be interesting.
Congrats to all Becky/Liz fans, we've set an example that others could follow. Now, fingers crossed for ABC'S press release.

=================================

Thanks jmoney.
I really hope they (Liz fans) do but I have a bad feeling that if they dont' see Liz written like they want they are going to turn out and it is going to bite people in the ass (including the show, actors on this show and yes even Becky). So it comes down to are they really Beckys fan or a fan that wants the show to be exactly what they want and to hell with everything else.Hmmm?
Like that joke,
"I want what I want when I want it",
"You will get what I got when I get it".

We shall see. But I am not holding my breath as I think to many are geared up for a miracle and I don't think we will get one. Am I a debbie downer, maybe. So I will enjoy what I can when I can.

Nice post J.
There are 3 major characters that IMO are leaving the show, with or without RH staying or going status.
As long as they aren't one of my fav's I am fine with that!!

I really hope they (Liz fans) do but I have a bad feeling that if they dont' see Liz written like they want they are going to turn out and it is going to bite people in the ass (including the show, actors on this show and yes even Becky).
********************************************
Liz's fans will tune in. Whichever way she is written. They were content when she was written poorly, so they have nothing to compare a good storyline to. They will be content if the character doesn't change.
I also wonder, how many people actually turned off their TV's. Puzzled

As far as the other actors on the show, the lead ones' will have no impact on RH performance or storyline.(Sonny, Jason, Carly, Icky Dante, Lulu) They basically are GH and everyone else is a "side job".
I don't see the other character's suffering due to Liz. Liz is merely a 'sidekick" on the show.

I want this to be true and moreover, I want this to be indicative of the powers that be finally seeing the show is more than just mob. There were plenty of active fan who love Elizabeth with Nik, Lucky, Jason, or just as a mother on the show... But the distinct thing is she isn't JUST tied to the mob but rather is one of those rare characters with ties on ALL SIDES of GH from hospital to mob, from Spencer to Cassidine, Jacks to Corinthos, from PCPD to ELQ and so on.
Her story lines were never limited to point she had to be written off. On the contrary, her rich history and ties to so many means her story lines could be UNLIMITED.

Word for word, TheCreamTeam, I agree.
Liz's rape storyline, and to it have be revisited - would be such a great storyline, if tptb gave it a shot. TPTB would be given appreciation for doing that too. Here's hoping they take what you said into consideration.

So glad TBTB came to their senses in this instance and are retaining Becky. Now they need to give Liz a strong story. I also, hope they don't kill off Jake, there's way too much material there. I'd love it if Liz hooked up with Jax, that would drive Carly all kinds of insane!
