I'd heard a rumor NATAS was considering this nonsense, and prayed it wouldn't prove true.

Those awards will be handed out at the Creative Arts Daytime Emmys on June 17. Okay, I've been trying to be all Namaste of late, but this is some flat out b.s!

Who Should Starr Manning be Paired With on General Hospital?

Soap fans love their couples and we here at Daytime Confidential are no exception.  The moment news broke that Starr Manning (Kristen Alderson) is on her way to Port Charles my DC podcast co-host Regan Cellura and I began discussing which GH'er we’d like to see her paired with.

Regan doesn’t want to see a Michael (Chad Duell) and Starr pairing, but I think the idea is intriguing. Primarily, because of the drama it would create between their parents. Then we started thinking of other GH characters Starr could be paired with. Johnny (Brandon Barash) and Starr immediately jumped to mind. Our discussion continued, with names such as Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) and Matt (Jason Cook) popping up. It will be interesting to see how Ron Carlivati works Starr into Port Charles,  but we’d love to hear your thoughts! 

Who would you like to see Starr paired with on General Hospital?
