Good Girls Gone Wild: Elizabeth vs. Robin?

General Hospital's Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) have been spending a lot of time together lately and I can't help but wonder if there isn't a bit of screen testing going on by TPTB. People who read Daytime Confidential know that most of us who blog here are Liason fans, but considering Frons allegedly put the kibosh on the popular couple I started to think about what options there were to keep Herbst written into the show. A romantic pairing with Patrick was the first possibility that came to mind and after talking about it with Regan - who alluded to the possibility in her General Hospital Spoilers a few days back - I thought I'd put it up as a poll.

Imagine Elizabeth versus Robin (Kimberly McCullough). It wouldn't be as slaptastic as Elizabeth versus Sam (Kelly Monaco), but it could be a great telling of Good Girls Gone Wild.

Would you like to see Elizabeth with Patrick or Elizabeth versus Robin?

So what should they call it? If you could name Sam, Spinelli and Winifred’s new P.I. Agency what would you call it? RUMOR has it there may be a fourth character being added into the P.I. mix. Any guesses as to whom? Sam steps up again to help save Spinelli by destroying the evidence against him. Will Agent Rayner catch her?

April is going to be a busy month…Robin’s PPD comes to a head, the hospital re-opens, Helena returns and the new Michael debuts. What’s with all the stuff happening in non-sweeps periods? READ MORE

Yesterday I asked, where’s Ric? That hand we saw snatching one of Jerry’s DVDs, that was him. Nice to see TPTB using Rick Hearst to his fullest potential. Where will see him next? Watching the DVD! Ooooohhhh the suspense is killing me. Sorry, sarcasm is not always my best color. So Ric finds out that Claudia hired Devlin who then shot Michael and it’s just the right information to hold over his former lover’s head. Let’s keep track here. Kate, Ric and soon Jax will all know who hired Ian Devlin. And they all keep it a secret?! It’s soap, secrets are part of the deal, and I get that, but Jax? The RUMORED spin we’re going to get for this one is stupid IMO. Jax doesn’t want Carly to go running back to Sonny, so his answer is to keep this HUGE secret from his wife? Let me know how that works out for you buddy. READ MORE

Who finds out next about Claudia’s involvement in Michael’s shooting? Ric? Jax? Both? RUMORS say Ric will find out but it MAY not stop with Sonny’s brother. Remember I mentioned way back when that Jax MAY be learning the truth and keeping it to himself? Would that cause trouble for the reunited CarJax? Just yesterday we talked about them being OK but I also mentioned that when Sonny is involved, Carly usually gets sucked back into the vortex. IF and when Jax finds out about Claudia ordering the hit that sent Michael into coma-land, would he tell Carly or keep it to himself? That earlier mentioned vortex MAY have Jax stopping himself as he’s afraid that telling Carly what he knows will send her straight to Sonny and into his life. Who tells Jax? SPOILERS say it’s Olivia who gets her boss the DVD. That’s rich considering she torched the one Kate had during the crisis. READ MORE

Is General Hospital Headed For a Casting Bloodbath?

DC's Regan has been talking about possible casting drama taking place at General Hospital ever since news of the massive ABC pay cuts first broke. Now comes news from TV Guide Canada's Nelson Branco that the jobs and/or contractual statuses of Leslie Charleson (Monica), Megan Ward (Kate), Greg Vaughan (Lucky) and Rebecca Herbst (Liz) are on shaky ground and that Rick Hearst's (Ric) future with the soap isn't looking to bright either. I'd love to say I'm surprised, but I'm not.
Charleson plays a Quartermaine, and GH has made it all-too clear how they feel about this insanely-popular family. In recent years they've killed off Emily, Alan and Justus and wrote out Ned and Dillon, plus Charleson is over 40 and we know how Brian Frons feels about older actors on his soaps! READ MORE
