Meredith Vieira Checks Back Into General Hospital Jillian Bowe December 11, 2012 Ten years after her first stint on General Hospital, Meredith Vieira is back. TV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan spoke with the former co-host of The View and The Today Show to get the skinny on what her character Bree Flanders will be up to when she hits Port Charles on Dec. 14. TV Guide Magazine: You were such a hoot as Bree. What's become of our girl? Vieira: Well, she's no longer providing comfort to men! Lynn Herring returns to the show as Lucy Coe [also Friday] and it turns out Bree is her senior vp of marketing at CoeCoe Cosmetics. Sabrina and Felix are desperately trying to get a meeting with Lucy but first they have to go through me. [Laughs] But, really, not much has changed for Bree. Prostitution. Makeup. Hey, it's all sales.
