The rumor mill has been a churnin' when it comes to hunky actor Brandon Barash's status at ABC Daytime's General Hospital. Relax, Johnny Z fans. According to setside sources, Barash isn't going anywhere!
The false rumblings had Twitter buzzing Sunday afternoon, as even Barash's costar, Kelly Sullivan (Kate/Connie) retweeted a fan-generated Twitter petition (twitition) to "save" the actor's job.
Barash later tweeted that he had no idea if he was being written out, which unwittingly fueled fan panic.
According to my sources, Barash and his fans have absolutely nothing to worry about.
"He isn't going anywhere," insists one insider. "General Hospital has big story planned for Jonnny!"
From what I'm hearing, Johnny's rivalry with Sonny (Maurice Benard) will continue to intensify, possibly leading the mob prince down an even darker and more dangerous path to revenge than the one he's currently on!
"Sonny's going to keep sticking the knife in," quips one mole.
