Supramom-Thanks for the heads up. I don't do the twitter thing. I'm sure DC will be on it when they get confirmation. I hate this. She's such a wonderful actress and has that ability to make those working with her look good. Regardless of the Wang flap, she was speaking up for a colleague and essentially her show. TPTB will end up looking petty and vindictive, as if trying to keep an unruly child in line. It's a sad, sad turn of events...
Tealita-That's why I bow and defer to people like you who are "Masters and Mistresses of the PC/Laptop Generation". As long as I can point, click and type I'm fine. (And the internet is probably much safer as a result! )...
Supramom--Thanks for the info. I can't think of fan one, who wouldn't be completely crushed if NLG leaves. OMG...
Are you serious? If Nancy is gone I will be livid!!!! She is one of the stars of the show and should be a frontrunner. And I for one, love her outspokenness. At least someone tells it straight because execs at GH sure don't.
I hope it's just a rumor that NLG is out since she is more of a lead than a supporting actress.
Sonny has way too many exes on the show. Is there really a need for Olivia or Kate if the issue is paying NLG's salary?
I didn't see anything on NLG's twitter about her leaving, but then again, she's probably not allowed to say anything.
Let me get my Whitney on: OHTTMFN! NLG had better not be out. And I don't want LW to go either unless it's her choice AND they can get SJB or TB to replace her.
HAHAHAHA! I loved it when Whitney said, Oh Hell to the no!
I need someone to clarify these statements:
**Kate is hiding a BIG, BIG secret from her new/old love, but is it the fact that Sonny has, yet again, another child out there somewhere? Not necessarily. But Kate’s secret WILL have huge ramifications for Sonny, and for Skate.
**Sonny, who may be the first one to get a clue about his grown son and his partner, will be humorously horrified by the pairing (D&D), Olivia will support it, and Kate, too, will have an opinion. And her choice will be Lulu…for now.
Are they hinting at Sonny possibly being Delores' father?!?!? Has the sperminator struck again?!?!?! I may just be using my imagination a little too much... There has always been the rumor that Spin was Kate and Trevor's. Blech on so many levels!
I haven't either, HOWEVER, I think Nancy would be the 1st to open her mouth about it just to piss off TPTB!
Ahanshew--Yeah, you would think that NLG would let it slip earlier rather than later. I have my fingers crossed.
I'm saying a prayer TPTB will recognize that they don't want another full out
"declaration of war" if NLG is indeed "let go". After what they had on their hands with RH I don't think they would want to revisit that experience...
I don't think they are that smart. LOL...
I was thinking about Laura Wright potentially leaving. Raven has been hinting to a big player leaving the past several months. I was under the impression that it was MB. IF Laura is leaving too, they could ride off in the sunset together. I do agree that Carly may have run her course. Just a thought.
Just mixing in a bit of new spoilers. Credit goes to ABC Hotsheet, WUBS, and SID.
♥♥♥♥♥♥ SPOILERS! SPOILERS! SPOILERS! ♥♥♥♥♥♥
* Jason and Sam are spending their last days in their honeymoon paradise. But as the week- ends, they'll be giving it up -- but not to return to Port Charles. No, Franco finally makes his move, and his plot against Jason and Sam leaves them both in horrifying circumstances.
*JaSam get back from Hawaii Nov. 11th.
*Jason visits Liz who is still not well.
*Back in Port Charles, look for a Corinthos family dinner full of hidden agendas and secret tensions. With Dante investigating the illegal warehouse activities, he and Michael are pitted against each other. Meanwhile, look for Lulu to struggle with the decision to announce her engagement to Dante or not. Does she really want to get married?
*Dante wants to work the Lisa case.
*Sonny confronts the closet in Bensonhurst where Deke held him as a child.
*The Corinthos family dinner is also party to say farewell to Kristina as she departs for college. Look for goodbye scene with Alexis and Molly, with Sonny, and a memorable goodbye from Ethan.
*Ethan and Luke bump into each other while they're each snooping around at Wyndemere. What will they uncover together? Meanwhile, Luke and Carly have their first confrontation since Luke's been back.
*Steve and Olivia watch Cam and Aiden--foreshadow much?
*All this, plus Maxie's birthday offers Matt the opportunity to do something special ... only he doesn't remember! Plus Carly comes across Shawn cavorting with another woman, and could Olivia be pregnant?
Thanks Jasam! There are a lot of rumors circulating out there!
Has anyone heard from EET? She seems to be MIA and I am a bit worried.
Here are WUBS latest rumours:
**Dr. Ewan may be a Cassadine in disguise
**Jason's personality continues to "evolve"
**Jake is alive and Dr. Ewan and Steven Webber know about it.
**Sam will be terrified her baby could be Franco's
**Cameron SORA's Molly SORA's
I've read elsewhere that Ewan may actually be that Cassadine that was planned several years ago. I also read that he won't be the drug connection from the hospital either, as was originally planned. Now it will be the new female pediatrician.
Basically, the rumor said that everything that was planned for Ewan will now be assigned to the female doc and that Ewan will be the long lost Cassadine.
@Supra-No. I have not heard from EET. I think the last time she posted something was a week or so ago.
Have you heard anything else regarding NLG?
Jasam - I updated my post with more rumors. I have not heard anything else about NLG. It was a one-liner at Daytime Dish. So much of their stuff is lies, but you never know when they might have something accurate.
@Suppamom-Then I will breath a short sigh of relief. Thanks for the latest tidbit as well as Tealita.
I have a feeling a lot of 'announcements" will be made during sweeps.
Jasam/Supramom: Thanks for the updates and "goodies". The NLG "blurb" has me, if not seeing red, at least has my blood ready to boil . And I really don't like feeling that way...
Awww you guys are sweet. Ive been on but not much - when the weather goes back and forth like this it makes my fm symptoms freak out. I do better in the warm weather than I do in the cold but I do better in the cold than I do when it goes from warm to cold to warm to cold...its like my muscles dont know what to do LOL.
Add to that the fact that I am behind on gh right now. I am so disgusted with the state of the show right now its not even funny. I never thought I would ever stop watching but its getting to the point Im tempted. I said this to a friend tonight - Im not disgusted that they had michael raped or that they killed jake or that they nearly infected/might have infected patrick(had they gone there) with hiv or that they may have sam raped. What I find disgusting is that they are telling all of these horribly dark stories in rapid succession with ZERO payout. I wanted to see michael in counseling, sort of like tony soprano with his therapist, slowly turning more and more sonny-esque as a coping mechanism. I wanted to see liz and carly interact post jakes death. I THOUGHT they might do a liz/jax/carly triangle with liz drawn to joss. Shouldnt these women have SOME reaction? And why has there been zero change in how any of the people effected by jakes death see themselves or their lives or how they interact? Both stories had like two awesome days of performances/emmy bait and then the stories were dropped in large part. The scrubs story is turning in to who killed lisa, when Im thinking "who cares, who killed lisa, Im just glad someone did" And then if Sam gets raped/possibly raped - what does this make ? her fifth or sixth attempted sexual assault on this show. I never saw any of sonny's enemies going after reese or carly (yeah sort of lo but that was more about a hostage situation at first, not attraction) or kate or emily. Violence against them yes, but manny wants to rape sam, jerry wants to rape sam/sell her in to a sex slave ring, now franco. C'mon. And then theres lulus alcoholism. It seems that they are setting the stage with matt too. So we have luke the addict, lucky the addict, lulu the addict, and matt the addict (not to mention sonny's occasional abuse of booze) - how many addiction stories can one show tell at one time? I guess I shouldnt ask when the show in question has not one, not two, but THREE psycho serial killers running around the canvas at one time. Im sorry but you take that all together and all I can think of is HOT MESS!
@EET-Hopefully the weather settles down a bit in your area. Here, it is like it went straight to cold and pretty much skipped fall.
I agree with your post. I am sure everyone on this board is aware of how I feel about GH. I hate to always be negative about the show.
I just read on Daytime Dish that Nancy will go off contract soon. But I read somewhere else that an upcoming storyline with her and Tony Geary is planned.
It is really hard to figure out what is really going on at GH these days.
I also read that Edward will suffer a stroke.
Supramom-Thanks for these tidbits. With regard to NLG, I'm choosing to look at "Off Contract" as better than being "Let Go" outright. Keeping my fingers crossed and still saying prayers...
GENERAL HOSPITAL Spoilers/Rumors:
- A little birdie has told me that a major player will return to GH later this year to cause some emotional turmoil for a specific character's life.
- I'm hearing more and more rumblings that Laura Wright (Carly Jacks) and Johnathon Jackson (Lucky) will be OUT come late December.. I'm also hearing Andrea Bogart's (Abby) on her way out!
- As for John J York (Mac) and Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis), it doesnt't look like the latter two will leave anytime soon.. thank god!
- I'm hearing its going to be a tragic, tragic Quartermaine Thanksgiving. What that means, i'm just not sure but it's not going to be a happy holiday.
- I'm hearing from multiple sources that Eween IS in fact a Cassadine, a spitting image of a character whom Guza tried to create years ago (Valentin).. also hearing Maggie's a SPENCER!
- I'm hearing from multiple sources that Genie Francis (Laura) will NOT be returning to GENERAL HOSPITAL anytime soon, however Anna and Robert Scorpios' names have been mentioned QUITE a few times to me.
- There's much hype over the rumor of TWO OLTL stars coming to GH as two recasted characters. John Paul Lavoisier as Dillon Q.. and Kirsten Alderson as Kristina Corinthos. Alderson has reportedly DENIED going to GH, and doubting that Lavoisier will come on as the youngest Q.
- Still hearing MAJOR rumblings that come September, GH is OFF the air! ABC has reportedly declined GH's death, however it seems as if the rumors are growing louder and louder as the ratings come in lower, and lower. Stay tuned for more updates..
Dont count out gh yet. It all depends on how badly the Chew and/or the revolution does in the ratings. My thinking is that tiic are purposefully making the show unwatchable so that there isnt clamor from the fans and the affiliates when it gets pulled.
I just saw this little tidbit at DD:
Olivia is concerned that she may be pregnant; Johnny watches as Kate and Sonny slow dance."
It was in the, "Start The Gossip," section which I almost never read. But I got to thinking about the bit about Johnny. Now if Johnny tried to poach Kate from Sonny, that would be one triangle I'd like to see. KeSu is young enough for Johnny, and while I prefer MW as Kate, KeSu isn't a completely bad actress.
For the rest of the hints on that page, visit:
Tealita-Interesting bit of "gossip". Still, I'm just tired of "the bully" being front and center, even when the story isn't built around him, per se.and it keeps this mob element as a "go to"/"back up" base when the writing staff seems to run out of ideas/areas to start up a new arc. Maybe it's just me...
I agree with you about Sonny. I have complained about that character since time immortal--or at least since he gave AJ the meathook treatment. And remember, I have no knowledge that GH plans to go in this direction with Johnny, or even if that little morsel was real. I'm passing time by putting stuff together in a way that WOULD be interesting.
But wouldn't that be fun? Wouldn't it be interesting if GH stepped up to the plate and actually had a triangle involving Johnny and Sonny? I FLOVE me some Johnny, and feel that a triangle like THAT would have the fans off and running.
I'll sell the popcorn!
Tealita-Darlin' they ought to put you on the writing staff for this one. 'Cause I know you'd have Johnny winning this one! I'd even spring for a front row seat...
A triangle between Johnny/Kate and Sonny? All we would get to see of the 3 of them would be Sonny threatening to kill Johnny nearly every single day, didn't we have enough of that when Olivia was cougar macking on Johnny? Let Johnny be completely free of any of Sonny's mess.
For those that read Ravenbeauty's stuff... she posted a hefty little tidbit about GW over on her page.
@tealita- I honestly don't see much chemistry between nuKake and Sonny otherwise I would be on board with the triangle between Johnny.
@mipeony- I checked the updated status for Ravenbeauty and it looks like they realized they made a mistake with Garin and he is out! This is great news. I am just anxious to know who the replacement is. Also, I wonder if Lexi could be brought back?
Thanks guys for the update about GW. That was fast. Mipeony, you're right. They probably wouldn't know how to write something like that a all.
I read this too. Is it the writer's responsibility to fire actors or the EP's? It was such a huge mistake to fire Lexi. All I hope is please God don't bring Guza back. LOL
Question for those "in the know": What is Shelly Altman's reputation? I was not a viewer of AW and I'm an off-and-on viewer of OLTL. Also, with regard to GW and the material he's done that is already "in place"-will it be tweaked to give us Altman's "vision" of GH? Or should we expect someone totally new and how soon?
(I'm with ahanshew and pray that Guza isn't being considered.)Thanks...
I am not into conspiracies, BUT what if Guza was given the old heave ho said that he could be brought over to the online version of GH if it goes to PP? GW obviously has the same bosses as Guza which means interference from JFP and Frons. If you're going to clean house, then clean house by replacing the bosses that got GH in the mess that it is currently in. If Michele Val Jean had the experience and was once a co-HW then why wasn't she promoted to HW?
Liason good questions - Im still wondering if tptb are trying to cause a drop in the ratings so that they can justify canceling it. If they cant get the numbers for the Chew or the Revolution UP (and Im hearing the rev. is an even bigger mess than the Chew) then the only other solution is to tank gh. It certainly feels that way.
*Jason finally receives the wedding gift Franco has been promising him. And it's worse than he could have ever feared. Will he and Sam ever recover from what Franco does to them?
*Sam and Jason keep quiet about the "Franco incident.”
*The mystery over what happened to Lisa takes a turn this week when we find out that, yes, someone did actually kill her. The question is: WHO?
*Matt continues to take care of Elizabeth this week as she recovers from her near-death experience. Look for Maxie to walk in on the two of them in a close moment. But Liz isn't out of the woods yet, and by the end of the week, she's reaching out to an old flame: Jason!
*Liz "sees" Jake and cries out to Jason to help her.
*Luke visits Aiden, they get into a car accident.
*While Sonny and Kate continue to reconnect, Carly finds a few roadblocks in between her and Shawn. Does it have something to do with his past? Maybe Carly and Shawn will be drawn closer together when they discover a dead body together!
*Johnny helps Kate with her car...Olivia and Sonny stop by.
*Steve might regret bringing Maggie to town.
*All this, plus Dante returns home from the hospital and, much to Lulu's chagrin, gets drawn into the Lisa Niles murder investigation. Look for Olivia to tell Lulu she has to decide whether she wants this marriage or not. And Lucky is tormented by these mysterious messages he's been getting. Is it all in his head, or is Siobhan somehow communicating to him?
*Also, Julie Marie Berman (Luly) recently shared on MSN TV the status of her continuing with GH; "I don't even know how these rumors start. My first thought is, "Who is the person that comes up with this stuff and what joy does it bring to them?" So no, I'm not leaving. I'm still on the show and I'm very happy. I've always enjoyed working on the show, and we have a great cast right now. It makes it fun to go to work."
Jasam--Thanks for the spoilers. They actually sound interesting and full of promise. Wouldn't it be nice if GH was like OLTL by giving us great stories until the end. I'm kinda over GH being cancelled. I just want to go out with a bang.
Jasam-Thanks for the "tidbits". I'm encouraged a bit by what's in store. I'm also cautiously happy to read the quote from JMB. I just think she's a special talent that, even if her material doesn't make eveyone happy, she still delivers some wonderful performances.(just my view.)
Michael Fairman interviews Genie Francis:
Hi everyone! New stuff from Daytime Dish, so remember that bowl of salt:
Jonathan Jackson is out. At his request. Last tape date Nov 17. Already taped last scenes with Tony Geary. It says that he wanted a lighter load and TPTB would not agree. It also says he wanted to be reunited with Becky and they also nixed that. (This one seems to have a basis in reality.)
Come January Kimberly McCullough gone. (Remember that salt!)
Before January, another female will be ousted.
Garin Wolf gone sometime next year. End of GH will be written by someone else.
@tealita-Thanks for the link. That was a very good interview. It seems that her and Tony Geary don't have a very good relationship. I wonder why? The fact that GH did not offer her a contract in all these years is just stupid.
@Supramom-The first tidbit about JJ has indeed happened.
Tealita/Supramom-Thanks for the link and the "tidbits". The JJ one has indeed come to pass, and I feel like I want to "wallow in despair" as much as his character is as well as for what is happening on screen. Really wish Genie was available, but then what would she actually come back to?
Jasam-I am shuddering about Sam and Jason-whether one likes the couple or not, this set up is inhumane and degrading for both. I can't blame youor any Jasam fan for not watching. I'm having second thoughts about their scenes and do I really want or need to view this. I feel like I'm watching something that's going to turn NC-17...
Jasam--Each time I read a tidbit that speculates about the bad blood that may lie between GF and AG, I read one insisting that the two of them get along very well. I've also read that AG makes a point of getting along with all his female costars.
Judging by how lazy AG has gotten over the years, I would be surprised if I heard that he ever lobbied to bring GF back. If she came back, TG would be forced to get up off his duff and work.
I also read that he and Jane Elliot have a very solid friendship because they share some things in common.
Thanks for the link, tealita! Genie Francis seems like such a warm, sweet person. Even though I haven't cared for her storyline on Y&R, I root for her to do well there.
@tealita-I wonder what TG and Jane Elliot have in common? They do seem to have good repor.
@Swan-I did watch Friday and Monday's episodes. I still don't watch on ABC, but on Soapnet. The direction they are taking Sam and Franco is just deplorable. I mean, they have managed to book James freakin awesome Franco for his third arc, and this is all they could come up with. There are so many other ways they could have told a story and utilized him. I wonder what will be displayed in the "rape."
All I can do Swan is shake my head.
Here are a few tidbits from SoapOperaNetwork.com — A quick peek into what’s happening in Port Charles this November.
GENERAL HOSPITAL: NOVEMBER PREVIEW
Sonny decides to close a certain chapter of his life.
Maxie finds a way to inch closer to the object of her affection.
The investigation into Lisa’s murder takes an emotional toll.
Lucky turns to Luke in his time of need. Will Luke be able to redeem himself?
Johnny sets off sparks with someone unexpected.
As Franco’s presence continues to threaten Port Charles, the object of the madman’s twisted obsession reaches their breaking point at a special event.
Jasam! I had the wild thought about the bully Corinthos "tidbit". (And this is just me, myself and I, opinion wise.) Wouldn't it be fabulous if the bully took himself out of PC and "retired" to his island, never to return taking NuKate with him? Close his own mob "chapter". It won't happen, but a girl can dream can't she?...
@Swan-Ah. You are too funny.
Jasam--I remember reading an interview by Geary. On the subject of JE, AG said that she helps ground him, that she challenges him, and with her, he feels less isolated. He also refers to her as, "his partner in crime."
Now why Geary would feel, "isolated," idk, except that it's open to speculation--as it is with JE.
