Oh happy day,
When Jesus washed,
He washed the soap killers away!
Are the soap gods finally smiling down on us? According to ABC Soaps In Depth'sTwitter profile, Jill Farren Phelps (Editor's Note: Jill Farren "F*** Up") has been given her walking papers at General Hospital. The magazine reports One Life To Live's Frank Valentini has been signed on as GH's new executive producer!
Huge #GH news: A source at ABC/Disney says Jill Farren Phelps was let go and Frank Valentini is the new EP. Actors will find out in the AM.
This news comes a week after Prospect Park's deal to take the ABC soaps to the web fell apart. Farren Phelps has been showrunner at GH since 2001. Prior to her tenure at GH, she was the executive producer at OLTL from 1997-2001, Another World from 1995-1996, Guiding Light from 1991-1995 and Santa Barbara from 1987-1991. See kids, prayer and rain dances do work!
