General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn Slams Jon Bon Jovi by Calling Him "Less Drunk Than Jack Wagner"



This could make for an uncomfortable workplace environment if and when Jack Wagner returns for General Hospital's 50th Anniversary. Outspoken Twitter diva Nancy Lee Grahn stirred up a hornet’s nest during the Golden Globes with a tweet about Jon Bon Jovi looking drunk, which included a dig at Wagner. Tweeted Grahn:

Wagner retweeted Grahn’s words during the award show, and explained this morning in a series of tweets why he'd done so. Read his response after the jump!

Grahn tried smoothing things over this morning with two follow up tweets. She told one person it was a joke, and responded to another by saying she didn’t know he was an alcoholic or in recovery.

I find that Nancy has a HUGE EFFIN mouth. The one thing that NLG should consider is to either get a better platform to bully and ridicule people OR just shut up! I am not defending Jack Wagner nor commenting on what Nancy said, what I am commenting on is the fact that she finds it necessary to COMMENT on everything on Twitter!!!

Honestly, with all that shaggy hair on her head, you would think more sense would be under it.

NANCY, JUST SHUT UP!!!

The people who want her to shut up, I'm curious. Why are you following her?

I'd like to know the answer to that question myself. If these people who follow Nancy, want to shut her up so bad; then they need to block her on twitter. That will shut her up.

That's too bad for NLG, especially because she, her sister, & her mother lived with the consequences of having an alcoholic father for many years during her young life growing up in NW Illinois.

Sometimes biting, tongue-in-cheek humor does not translate well in print!

Some of you are ridiculous.

Why would she make a reference to Jack's drinking in the first place if she didnt already know about it??

Of course she knew. The fact that she said it anyways despite her family's experience with alcoholism just shows her to be a spiteful hypocrite.

Nancy tries real hard to be witty and cute and often misses the mark - what pleasure she derives from making fun of a disease is beyond me - but luckily people see her for what she is - Jack handled it wonderfully - and she should apologize - but I know she won't -

SoapGuy- I completely agree with you. I think she had to have known or else why would she refer to him as "drunk Jack Wagner" unless she had known of him having an issue with being drunk in the past. I find it hard to believe that she has worked with him, or even worked on the same show with him or his ex (Kristina) and not have known. The soap industry is small and tight knit and basically an everyone knows everyone community. Just being a fan I myself have heard/read instances and know of soap actors (NOT JACK WAGNER in particular) who are "rumored" to have alcohol issues. There's no way someone who has worked in the industry as long as Nancy has would not have known this about Jack. I think the "I didn't know" claim is a cop out and a way of covering her behind because she ran off at the mouth, which she seems to do alot of. I love Nancy and usually give her kudos for not being shy of speaking her mind but this time I think she went too far and was hurtful to both Jack and Jon Bon Jovi.

As far as people commenting that Jack is being "opportunistic" and was wrong to comment about it on Twitter, I disagree. You can imagine that his twitter was probably slammed with people questioning him or commenting on what Nancy said so he was probably addressing it because fans were expecting him to or asking him about it. I personally think that Jack handled it very professionally and that Nancy could take lessons from him in how to act with class and kindness.
