Here’s the Scoop! 03.11.09
Holly and Helena? Too much to handle? Obviously Holly’s return is being linked to Ethan and everyone who is anyone is hoping that Helena’s return means NotEmily is the RealEmily. Can you hear Frons’ campaign for that one? The real Emily returns…oh wait, she’s already there and we’ve been telling you her name is Rebecca…tune in. Some fans say Helena and Holly are the reasons for the POSSIBLE bloodbath hitting prospect studios (where GH is filmed). Emma Samms’ return SHOULD be a temporary gig with some saying she’ll be in Port Chuck and on our screens for roughly three weeks. Helena has never been a contract character (at least not to my knowledge) and I ASSUME that isn’t going to change. Two returns of recurring characters, one said to be brief, is that really a reason to let five actors go? The cuts hitting ABCDaytime are more likely a result of the crappy economy that is hitting everyone. I’m not giving Fronsie a free pass as there are plenty of newbie’s on my screen that really don’t need to be there especially not at the expense of some of my faves. READ MORE
Daytime Confidential's 2008 Male Performer of the Year, Tristan Rogers, has spoken out on his MySpace blog about this whole MonaVie situation.
It’s one thing to sell a product to John Q. Public. There is nothing implicit in this arrangement other than the product is what it is and does nothing more or less than what it is advertised to do. It’s another thing all together to sell the same product to a group of people who look up to you, and perhaps worth ship the ground you walk
on. When dealing with people at this level it is MOST important that you are not seen to be “selling” something. Rather, the product is presented in a sincere way and it is presented for what it is.Questions regarding this product must be answered in a way that do not infer the product could be something more than it appears to be."

Could a mother/son reunion be in the works at General Hospital? EW.com is reporting that Emma Samms is reprising the role of Holly Sutton just in time for May Sweeps. This will no doubt increase talk that Ethan is the son of Holly and either Luke (Anthony Geary) or Robert (Tristan Rogers).
RUMORS are my game and it's a RUMOR-filled world for me, so when Luke sent me a link to Tristan Rogers' (Robert Scorpio, General Hospital, Night Shift) blog titled "Rumor of a Rumor" obviously my interests were piqued. Tristan has some good points when it comes to RUMORS in general, but it's the General Hospital RUMORS over who Ethan Lovett (Nathan Parsons) really is that had Tristan clicking away on his keyboard.
There’s a story/rumor circulating on GH right now that I have been
aware of because it was brought to my attention courtesy of you folk
who post on my site. And under most circumstances I would have left it
at that. However, as this one crossed the desk of my manager, and my
manager is generally “out to lunch” when it comes to things like this
that alone qualified it for some attention.
I am referring to the storyline/rumor on GH concerning
Ethan/Holly/Robert baby/child/whatever. From my position I have no READ MORE
On today’s show Luke and Regan visit with Rogers about his amazing year and what it was like to portray Robert Scorpio, whose battle with cancer forced him and the fans to accept the reality that he was no longer the indestructible super-agent we’d grown accustomed to seeing on our screens. Rogers shares how seeing his former penthouse recreated on Night Shift was spooky and how it brought back so many memories for Finola Hughes and himself. We ask Rogers about what it was like to work with Sri Rao and his popular writing team at Night Shift and get his thoughts on what role Rao may yet play in daytime.
We also talk to Rogers about the long-awaited wedding of Robin (Kimberly McCullough) and Patrick (Jason Thompson) on General Hospital, which would not have been complete without Robert there to walk his daughter down the aisle. We ask how important it was for him to be a part of the momentous occasion, what his favorite moments from the wedding were and how sentimental the wedding was for Finola, Kimberly McCullough and himself.
Rogers' online series Tristan Rogers Unscripted gave fans a behind-the-scenes glimpse into Night Shift rarely seen in daytime and he talks about what it was like to get everyone to appear on the series and how this type of content can help keep fans interested in their shows. The economic crisis facing the country is having an impact on daytime and Rogers discusses what can and needs to be done to help save the genre.

It's the Scrubs Wedding on Friday. Finally, a couple can be happy and in love with their child. It's not typical for the angst ridden General Hospital but wonders never do cease. So enjoy it while we have it GH and Scrubs Fans. Luke will be there to see his old pal walk Robin down the aisle.
Robin and Patrick return to GH after their honeymoon. Things don't seem right in Port Chuck as we MAY finally see an end to the Great Drug Caper. Will one of Patrick's patients die? Is Robin seeing things?
Could Robin be seeing Emily? One RUMOR says Rebecca will be that new doctor that has been RUMORED to be coming. This RUMOR says she'll be a medical chemist. Elizabeth will be one of the first people to see Rebecca and she'll react to seeing her dead best friend's dopplehanger. READ MORE
