Brenda has left the building! General Hospital superstar Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo tweeted the last tape date for her current stint on the sudser.
June 9TH! will be my last day on set. Thank you GH for a great year. best cast and crew in the world and in my heart forever. VMG
As much of a huge, huge, huge fan of Marcil Giovinazzo and Brenda as I am, this return was a lesson in sometimes you really can't go home again. From the wonky storylines about movie star boyfriends, Balkans, missing babies and charity work gone awry, to the once, fun, fiery Brenda basically suffering from what appeared to be Seasonal Affective Disorder for the past year, this return has been pretty much a bust.
Hopefully when Marcil Giovinazzo inevitably returns for the series finale, she will be afforded a story worth her legend and her time. In the meantime, how's about a second season of The Bannen Way?
