Oh 100% I think her departure is totally justified and I didnt actually know her contract ended months ago. My feeling was basically that anyone could stick out six months and if the show wraps in August she (and jj) would still be able to be involved in pilot season but maybe I just dont know enough about the way the industry works. I just feel horribly that the show is going to end with lucky being a dead beat dad and robin potentially dying (and worse, dying without so much as a visit from robert and/or anna) -- I dont know but the thought of it makes my stomach churn. These are actors/characters we watched grow up on the show. They have been involved in the show for - ?? what ?? two decades?? The JJ/Lucky stuff bothers me the most because they could bring back GV but tiic would never do that lest it be a sign that they made a mistake letting him go in the first place. Lucky would NEVER desert his kids the way he did in Ireland and then if he leaves PC?? Sorry thats totally OOC.
I just read from several sources that the end storyline for Robin is her dying from complication from AIDS. What?? Are you serious. We all know she takes her medicine regulary and her viral load is almost undetectable. Robin said as such herself recently, so how in the world is her HIV status supposed to progress to AIDS in a short amount of time? These idiots. All I can do is shake my head.
A more deserving storyline is to have Robin go back to Paris to do more AIDS research, as maybe she loses her funding at GH. Her parents come for a visit to see Emma, and since she is considering her next steps, they advise moving to Paris to also be near them. Patrick will eventually join her, after they find a replacement for a neurosurgeon at GH. Of course, he wants to hand pick the replacement. This is all after they have both been cleared of Lisa Niles murder. Robin then leaves with Robert and Anna.
If the rumors are true and GH knew that Kimberly was leaving months ago, the show should have crafted a story line that would have taken her off screen and left Patrick as a single father raising Emma. Yes, I know this is probably not a popular move, but why should two actors have to leave the show when only one of them wants to move on?
There is absolutely no reason to kill off Robin. Jeez.
Just mixing in a bit of new spoilers. Credit goes to ABC Hotsheet, WUBS, and SID.
♥♥♥♥♥♥ SPOILERS! SPOILERS! SPOILERS! ♥♥♥♥♥♥
*Jason and Sam continue to try and help each other through their pain, but there is a distance between them. Jason obsesses over finding Franco, but it's Sam who stumbles upon a message from the mad artist. And the implications are more than Sam can bear -- why is Franco talking about a baby?
*Meanwhile, Franco's continued interest in Joslyn has Shawn constantly on guard to protect Carly and her daughter. But does what does this increased proximity mean for his and Carly's relationship?
*Something is seriously up with Robin. Is she going through inner turmoil because she is the one who killed Lisa? Or is it something else -- something far more serious? Look for her to use her medical knowledge to test herself for what could be wrong.
*Maggie checks out Emma when Patrick brings her in.
*The Spencers have a wild week in store. Just as Elizabeth is renewing her hope for a reunion with Lucky, another woman could come between them. Meanwhile, at Wyndemere, look for Ethan to finally see the Woman in White.
*Molly is missing in Wyndemere.
*New Year's eve will bring a big celebration in PC!
*All this, plus Matt and Maxie try to get romantic while suspicions swirl around them, and sparks fly when Johnny is interrogated by Officer Delores.
*As to the rumor that Lexi will return for a couple of episodes in December are just that rumors. Lexi states on Facebook, "Sorry to say that they are just rumors!"
Thanks Jasam-Hope your Thanksgiving was both joyful and "filling" (food-wise, that is!) Really wish that LA were coming back even if it was only to
"finish up" the year as Kristina. Sigh... Take care...
@Swan-Thanks. Enjoy your holiday.
Here's a small silver lining to the Robin exit story. From GHH.
No confirmation, but gossip has it that that Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) may make a two to three month return as part of Robin's (Kimberly McCullough) exit storyline. This seems to go along with a hint yours truly heard (but never repeated) around the time Tristan exited from the Y&R. So keep your fingers crossed! (Can we expect to hear of other potential returns as well?)
What is Finola Hughes doing right now? Is she available to come back also?
ahanshew-Thank you for the tidbit. We can only keep our fingers crosed and say some prayers that a "rumor" like this will come to pass. With all the mentions and referals to Laura in this Wyndemere story (and GF apparently not coming back), it just makes one weary over all the "will they or won't they" going on backstage. It also gets me thinking what type of "less than stellar" writing will be foisted on those willing to come back. That they'll be able to "sell" it, I have no doubt. But will it be worthy of their characters? Will it be worthy of their talents?...
I hate to throw water on this but according to Tristan (on his Facebook page) he has not been contacted about returning to GH nor does he know anything about Kimberly leaving GH. He goes on to say that he thinks it is highly unlikely that this current regime would ever contact him about returning.
Sorry for the bad news but Tristan does try to be as straightforward as possible with his fans.
I can't remember where, but I read that Tristan Rogers walked off the set of GH. I don't know if this is just a rumor, or even when it occured. But I do know that he is very outspoken. I read his blog once...although I really shouldn't go there...that he was critical of certain coworkers who were trying to making a side-living by selling---LOL--I'm sure other people has heard about it as well--"Kickapoo Joyjuice." I'm being bad, I know.
I have bad news - Liz is headed to Shadybrook again. It looks like she checks herself in. But the good news is it looks like it is to start off a story line with someone new. And Matt takes on Lucky over it.
Sam and Michael bond over rape. This should be a great story line for Michael.
Jason ends up in jail. Not sure why or any other details.
I completely forgot about Tristan being straight forward. Yeah, I'll bet there is zero truth to that rumor.
I heard about Liz having another melt down and the new male doc is the one that rescues her. This may have come from Raven, but I am not sure.
Did any of you see where Raven said Spinelli is out? Bradford is denying it, but Raven has proven herself on more than one occasion.
@ahanshew-What. Brandford is gone too? I have not checked FB. Let me see what Raven says. And the ship keeps sinking further and further.....
Okay. I read Raven's FB update. So besides Tony Geary, Brandford, KMC, another female favorite will leave on her own, and a major, major male star will receive his walking papers.
My guess is the female is Becky or Julie. And for the male vet, the only option left is Steve or Maurice. I am going with Steve this time.
Ditto. Heard that, too. Some are wondering if he is the serial-killer.
I guess it's not outside of the real of possibility that Jason is the serial-killer--if indeed, he does leave; assuming of course, they're still green-lighting that s/l.
I thought the female she was referring to was Becky, because she mentioned something about taking that better offer. Didn't Becky get an offer from Y&R? As for the male vet, she left another hint today, saying those who heard her radio broadcast know who she is talking about. That she spelled it out during that session.
I think Sonny will be the killer, but onlIy because there are rumors swirling that he is leaving and that his exit is to be shocking! Also that the killer has a split personality or something. Although they could use that on Jason with all his brain damage, it would be more shocking for it to relate back to Sonny's abuse (as that is his excuse for every disgusting action he takes!!) We are supposed to think we know this character inside and out, and I think that applies much more to Sonny than Jason. If they wanted to get rid of Steve Burton, they could have Franco kill him. Maybe Jason or Dante will end up killing Sonny. Full circle.... Or Michael. Supposedly Olivia and Abby die, so those are all good reasons for one of them to kill Sonny.
I'm beginning to think that they will actually just have everyone on the show die off and then close it out with some sort of monstrous explosion and then a black screen.
Supramom-Thanks. I know I will miss RH if she "packs her bags" and "relocates". She has been one of my "select group" of actors I tune in to GH for at this stage of its "disintegration".(That being said my other "favorite" female is JMB and I would also miss her terribly if she decides to take off.) Using that word in conjunction with my favorite soap makes me incredibly sad. I'm also distresed about the possible "write out" of Spinelli. I adore BA's work as he is one of the few bright rays of sunshine when he's on screen. As for MB's bully Corinthos, should he "expire", I, as noted on this board before, will not miss the characters' presence on the canvas. His "demise" will be a reason for me to smile. (Jeepers-did I just write that?) Nothing against MB...
In regards to Robin's/KMc's exit, I've been reading around different spoiler zones, and some are saying that she will ask Jason to help her disappear, I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure I saw this posted on GHH, maybe she either killed Lisa, or she is the serial killer, and she asks Jason to help her disappear to help cover her tracks. Has anyone heard anymore about this or have any thoughts? As much as I'd hate to have her be the serial killer, I'd take that as the lesser of two evils opposed to her being killed off.
Robin being the serial killer could not be anymore anti-Robin. I am perfectly fine with her being the one to kill Lisa (do you blame her?) or her succumbing to Aids, but a serial killer?!?! NO WAY.
@GHteenybopper-I also saw the storyline possibility that Robin dissappear's, but the idea that she is the serial killer is not appealing to me either. It is out of character for her and would be against everything that she is. I don't like the idea that she will succumb to AIDS though. It is not a responsible message nor a respected storyline for Kimberly.
*Who's up for a little love in the afternoon? Two couples will find themselves at crucial turning points this week: Lulu makes the decision whether or not to commit to marrying Dante, and when Sonny's past catches up to him, Kate has to decide if she wants to take a chance on their future together.
*Meanwhile, Mac is getting serious about the Lisa Niles murder case. This week, he assembles all the suspects in one place, and we get to see all the difference scenarios that might've gone down. Before long, someone from the boat gets attacked, and Dante discovers a shocking truth.
*The dead body found by Dante may be just the beginning...
*The closer Jason and Sam get to figuring out Franco's cryptic threats, the more emotionally scarred (her) and furious (him) they become. Look for Jason to have a huge angry outburst, which causes Dante to place him under arrest.
*Jason's fugue episodes become more frequent.
*Elizabeth finds out about how it was Luke who rushed Aiden to the hospital, and her reaction is not great news for Luke or Lucky. She's just a big ball of emotions these days, and you have to wonder what she'll do when Lucky tells her, again, that there's no hope for them as a couple.
*Dr. Ewan, on staff at Shadybrook?
*It's all a ruse!
*All this, plus Ethan tries to get to know the woman in white, and Maxie strikes up an arrangement with none other than Anthony Zacchara.
*Dominic Zampronga (Dante) shares in SOW although Dante asks his partner Delores out for drinks, after he and Lulu have a pretty bad fight, he does not see Dante waking up with a different woman. “They may go that way. I have no idea what they’re going to do but at this point, I don’t think it is supposed to be that. Lulu is the woman he loves. He and Delores have a platonic work relationship.”
Jasam-Thanks. Quick "drive by" here as I just got in from performance at theatre. Wonderful news about Frons getting the boot. (I can think of a couple places my own foot would connect with along with Ms. Phelps.) My only wish is that this could have come sooner-like maybe 3-4 years ago for a start. I wonder if we could get Anne Sweeney to "step down"? Just a thought. Enjoy your weekend. I'll be in the "Kingdom of Sweets" till
@Swan-Enjoy your weekend as well. I hope the performances have/will go well.
I am still going hold out hope that a miracle now on Prospect ST will happen. NEW beginings happen in Jan 2012 and Robin lives!!! I can see the stress of what happening to her affecting her decision to leave Patrick saying "none of this would of happened had you NOT been faithful and I'm honest I just will never trust you again and I think we should divorce" and she takes Emma and leaves.
Does anyone know if the serial-killer s/l is still a go? I hear that it's not.
@tealita- I have not heard anything specific. Just that a lot of storylines are being tossed out and rewrites, rewrites. I think the storyline was a bad idea anyways. We'll let me rephrase- depending on who the serial killer was and who was killed off. There are some characters I would love to see go.
Jasamm--I'm in the same boat. It would have been great--depending on who the killer was. This whole thing is a mess, isn't it?
Tealita and Jasam, I read that the serial killer story line is to be scrapped as well. I heard it was to have been Jason or Sonny. I am leaning towards Sonny as I heard he was leaving the show. He was to kill Anthony, Abby, Olivia and lastly Spinelli. Spinelli would have been killed because he figured out who it was. And then Jason would have killed Sonny for being the killer.
I also read that Lulu and Dante get married at Christmas and that Lulu still has a drinking problem. Supposedly, Genie Francis is still coming, which even Raven is still saying. Laura will be there for Lulu and the fallout from her drinking and to ride out the end of the show.
Supposedly, Jasam don't have much of a WTD story (thank the Gods for small favors!!!) and they do get their baby.
The rumor is that the new TPTB do not want to lose Kimberly McCollough, but I don't know if that is true or if they even have a choice. I did read something about Matt secretly trying to cure Robin.
Thanks, Supramom--Maybe that's why Matt dropped off the radar?
Hi SupraMom-do we even know the status of GH? They still ending??
Or am I living in a dream world thinking that the new production company is trying to MAKE a GO of this show?
HI I am new here. Been 'hopping' around sites to see who has the latest news.
PP is DONE. Is that to mean that abc firing Frons an indication that they want to keep gh on abc? Something DRASTIC is going on for him to step down. Get FIRED or whatever you call it. Either way he is gone.
I know there is alot of speculation about OLTL characters coming over, however at this point not sure I am believing that. Why would someone move across the country for a show that is suppose to be ending?
I just want to know if this show is looking to stay now since PP fell through and pissed off alot of viewers. The rest...RUMORS until we hear and see different I guess.
OK me bad. This is the latest scoop from this morning about Bree coming to GH.
If anything it gives me hope GH lives on!
I still think Bree will come. I know she's denied it, but I'll put money on it that there have been talks.
If she comes, which in a normal scenerio I could see it, wouldn't that mean there is no plans to end GH? I would imagine she would have wanted to sign at least a years contract. jmo
Welcome WTFGH!! If Raven has it right, GH is still supposed to end. She even referenced the idea that bringing in a new team and firing all the higher-ups meant a last chance. She said they did the same for OLTL and it is still ending. But, Daytime Dish and a couple other places say that Disney might be changing its mind and that the terrible ratings for The Chew and The Revolution are really making them look at what show they want leading into Katie Couric. I say if the new EP and HW can bring the show in under budget and bring ratings up, they will have a chance.
I think huge story line changes will be coming our way. I'm hearing no more serial killer, possibly scrapping this whole Lady in White, trying to get Kim McCollough to stay, Jax might be back, nu-Kate might be out, etc.
Unfortunately, we all have to wait and see. Which sucks!
Good Morning SupraMom........
Are you saying that GH is cancelled or this is a last chance they are getting?
I for one, don't understand why there is a new division being made, and including GH in that group if they are going to be cancelled. I am sure originally GH was going a bye bye, now I am not so sure. That is what gets me thru the show these days, change is a coming and GH may not be leaving after all.
NOT sure Raven knows much more than we do at this point.
I heard no more serial killer, and this women in white in a nightgown is stupid already! I must admit what little is shown, I am ffing thru.
I happen to like NuKate. What I don't like, is the character change in her. But then again, what character in the past 6 months have remained true to whom they have orignally been portrayed? NOT many! Everyone is different! Mainly Carly, Kate & Alexis. Alexis is so forgiving of Sonny when she thinks he killed her bff? Jax? Not the Alexis I know! Kate would never sniff after Sonny like she is! And Carly, who I LOVED forever, is falling short with her silliness with Shawn!
Thanks for responding and letting me get my frustrations out. lol
I think GH was lumped under the new group because there was no where else to put the show and it does run on daytime.
Well that just bursted my bubble!
I just read over on soapcentral that Abbey goes missing next week.

Jasam/WTFGH-Thanks for all the "goodies". At the risk of sounding too gleeful, there didn't seem to be a lot of stuff concerning the bully and Kate. If MB's character is being eased off the canvas, I will make every effort to restrain myself from dancing around my sewing studio. As for my favorites tying the knot, it's always grain of salt. Who's to say they can't pull an episode and insert completely new scenes that have no resemblance to what's been released in print or online? Jasam-you'll be happy to know I did not spin myself into the orchestra pit nor did I take out any scenery while on stage. We only had one "flake" take a spill during "Snow" and she bounced back up right in time with the music. Made me proud. Enjoy your weekend, darlin'...
Swan....NEVER count Sonny out until the final curtain comes down. We can hope that his storyline takes a backseat and we move on to fresh. MB is such a great actor, I don't want him to leave. Just go to the back of the class!!!
Not sure if you watch OLTL, but the writers, producers, editors are coming to GH.
If they start writing for GH like they have been OLTL these past 6 months, we are in for a treat!
Swan - I can just picture you dancing around singing "ding dong, the witch is dead"!!! That's what I'd be doing as well. But you are also right about the wedding. One person on Daytime Dish said the wedding on Christmas is Lulu's dream. I guess we'll have to wait and see.
WTFGH-I like your analogy about the bully being "sent to the back of the
class". It's never been about MB. In some ways, his talent seems to be, dare I say, wasted because so much of what he's been given lately strikes me as recycled. It's like he's on a "hamster wheel" that keeps going round and round with little variation. I wouldn't blame him if he'd want to get off for a bit and take a rest. As for OLTL, I've avoided geting "too close" so as not to be devastated when they vacate the airwaves. The PP "deal that wasn't" got me to start to "wean" myself away from it. I do admire some of the actors with Kassie DePaiva, Erika Slezak, Gina Tognoni, Robert Woods and Tuc Watkins being special favorites. Nice to converse with you and welcome to DC! Enjoy your weekend...
Supramom-I actually do a pretty good mimic of the Wicked Witch of the West. I pull it out every so often when I need to wake up my kids during class! No ruby slippers though...Thanks for your spoilers too...
Since this is a spoiler section, WUBS is reporting it is a Dream about the wedding.
Going forward with the new writing team and new division, I am not really taking any spoilers to seriously! So who knows!
Thank You for the welcome Swan!
I agree, everything MB is recycled. Which is why he needs to go to the back of the class. Until they can write for him, I don't want to see him. However, I don't want to lose him either!
As much as I like NuKate, not seeing much chemisty with her and Sonny.
You have a great weekend too!
@Swan-I am glad it went well. I watched Friday's episode of GH and actually enjoyed it. So, I wait with bated breath for the new regime. I know changes will be galore. Enjoy your weekend also.
