General Hospital's Kelly Sullivan Thinks Her Character Has a THIRD Alter!






Sweet Baby Soap Jesus, please let this be a case of wishful thinking on the actor's part! In the March 4-18 issue of ABC Soaps In Depth, Kelly Sullivan theorizes that Connie and Kate might not be the only personalities living inside Sonny's (Maurice Benard) Bensonhurst girlfriend!

Said Sullivan:

"She's been living as Kate for so long that something snapped and she reverted back to this sort of menancing, crazy, over-the-top, tortured soul...that could very well be another alter."

No ma'am. Just no...

There isn't room on this show for another character or more scenery-chewing from Cartoon Cawnie Falcoloony! Ron C, please disconnect your toy robot before it destroys the studio!!!!!

Wait, isn't Connie the "menancing, crazy, over-the-top, tortured soul?" Argh. This DID story has NEVER worked for Ron C. He never did it well on OLTL and has managed to write it even worse on GH.

These kind of stories are so obnoxious. The rest of the town just acts like it's normal for her to parade around as different people.

I hated how much airtime she was getting as Connie. And if she's got another alter...(it only makes me wonder if they'll be adding a fourth one as the gatekeeper)

Don't you think its strange that she hasn't even gone to see a therapist of some sort to discuss the fact that she's been "gone" for a few months, found out her son is dead and how to integrate her?

Talking to Sonny or Olivia doesn't qualify as therapy.

Can't we just have Kate back? I'm so tired of the alters although i'll admit I like Kelly's acting more than Jess/Tess i'm just tired of it. Let Sonny/Kate stand on there own two feet without throwing 2-3 alters in with them.

This endless, uninteresting storyline + Sabrina + REVOLTING/impossible miscarriage baby storyline - Fitting use of the vets = Me not watching this show anymore

I think it was SOD that had a great interview with Ron a week or two ago. Completely paraphrasing, but he mentioned that Frank doesn't particularly care for DID storytelling either. I was like, wow.

Then Ron confirmed what's been reported before that Brian Frons had his favorites and he considered Ron a socialist writer. I really don't like SOD's site, so I'd search but I don't think they archive their articles do they?

Ron can't help himself lol. The sentiment in these parts is negative to Kelly. I love her, but this is exhausting. I kind of wish we saw Garin's take on this story (side note: I guess he won't be cutting that anniversary cake lol) since it started out dark. I would've loved to see that as opposed to the used OLTL scripts.

Frank and Ron needs to hire a PI to steal back those embarrassing/evil photos Kelly has of them. Blackmail is the only way to explain why she's still around. The ONLY way.

I have taken GH off DVR and put Y&R on. Y&R is so freakin good right now that I just can't deal with GH anymore.

Konnie + Sabrina + Spinelli/Maxie baby + Maurice Benard's constant mumbling x Sabrina - Patrick = Miranda, Jax's ex wife. One of the most annoying unnecessary characters.

EastWest, I think that for the most part people will praise Kelly Sullivan as doing the best she can with the material. Few say that she's a bad actress, or that they dislike the story because of her. At least for me, it's not the actress that's the issue the way it is, say, with my complete disinterest in all things Victoria Newman because of Amelia Heinle on Y&R.

The issue I have is this story is just so terrible! And I even sometimes catch myself feeling bad for Maurice Benard, who gets to do two things:

1) Stew about Konnie and have impassioned conversations about Konnie with Konnie or Olivia

2) Talk to Michael about how much he loves him/predict that Michael's association with AJ will end in tears

I'm no Sonny fan, but it must be galling for MoBe to be backburnered so completely after being the STAH of the show for nearly 20 years--and backburnered in a crap story, to boot!

I think the third alter is the one who initially begged Joe Jr to have sex with her. Remember, Joe Jr. said Connie begged him to sleep with her, she says he raped her. Maybe both are true? So far there's:

(1)Original Connie who left home and took the name Kate Howard. She is a real person.

(2)Crazy Connie, who is just an alter and a really distorted version of the woman the original used to be. She is made of pure emotions and not a real person. Eveything about her is exaggerated from her mannerisms to her speech. She is a stereotype of the original woman who is tough enough to protect them all.

(3)Third Alter,, a slutty seductress who cheated on Sonny with Joe Jr. She could possibly be the result of being molested by a priest or something like that waaay before the Joe Jr. Rape.

^This is what I think would explain things the best.

@Bishbay, great posts. And Kelly Sullivan is better than Bree on even her WORST day, i would agree! Kelly and Maurice play great off each other, and deserve better material than what they're getting. I wouldn't mind Sonny doing other things, but not if it's just standing around shooting the sh!t w/ Black Jason. The show definitely needs some more tweaking, and i'm just hoping they tweak the right things!

Iowa, thanks. And I forgot about Sonny's third conversation partner, Shawn...those scenes tend to be pointless, which is why probably why I forget them Sad

GH is on fiyah and the pieces to the puzzle fits except this BS Connie/Kate mess... Pls no third person alter ego. Just lock this chick up at Ferncliff or have Heather Webber kill her... IJS-

Sweet Jesus in Heaven!!!!!!!!!!!

PLEASE do NOT let this be true!

It's like Jillian said: Connie, Bonnie, RONNIE - them just keep on comin!

bishbay - I don't think that's accurate, re: MoB. From what I have read he wanted to work with Kelly Sullivan and loves the Skate pairing.

I for one love the SID storyline. I love the character of Connie and look forward to her returning. Kate is boring in my opinion. A third personality could only mean more fun. Kelly Sullivan is a talented actress. I look forward to anything thrown her way.
A year plus ago I used to fast forward through more than 3/4 of the show. Today I sit through and watch everything... okay, almost everything.... I do fast forward through the Sonny/Shawn scenes. I am sad everytime I see Shawn walking with Sonny. Shawn has much more potential but keep him away from Sonny. He needs to play a role in the hospital (chief of security perhaps?)

I grew tired of all things DID back in 2011 when the Messica's ruled OLTL! Just say no to any more DID stories and no more Konnie/Bonnie/Connie/Kate, etc!

Oh golly gee why am I not surprised, I remember the neverending DID storylines on OLTL and before I could bat my eye here they are on GH... I wonder how many years this will last? I just don't find this excessive mental illness the least bit entertaining... its rather sad actually.

GOD NO!!!! On OLTL Jessica had so many personalities that it just kept steamrolling into one more ridiculous scenario after another until it was like a cartoon!

Connie is too much and I'm sorry, the actress never really owned the KATE role or the CONNIE part and overall, both should be sent away for therapy

Likely/Hopefully just hyperbole of an actor describing character portrayal. The roles of Kate/Connie have dramatically evolved since the beginning, with Connie now becoming more fully rounded entity instead of just a one-dimensional symptom.
