Once again, AGREED!!
I'm not interesting in an extended Joe Scully storyline. I haven't heard a soul who likes that story. Don't know why they have to keep him around. There are other characters they can focus on.
I really hope that Genie Francis is coming back to "GH". It would be exciting how Ron would write her. And right, there are so many unresolved things between Laura & Luke. This is just something the show can't pass on.
Doesn't Genie have like a three year contract with Y&R though?
Even if she does, that doesn't mean anything in this day and age. There are loopholes in contracts, if TPTB wants someone out they can get it done.
If the tiic at Y&R want her out, sure they can do that. But why would they release her from her contract, in order to go back to GH?
It may not be that cut and dry. Frank Valentini has stated he isn't interested in bringing Genie back to GH, saying that "their cast is solid at the moment". Of course, that was before the announcement of JFP coming to Y&R. GH's 50th anniversary is coming up and I am hoping they will get Genie back for at least that.
At Y&R's end, Sony is the one who ultimately decides who stays and who goes. I'm not really sure how Sony feels about GF. I know MAB loved her and lobbied to get her in, and on the other hand, JFP hates her and vice-versa.
Don't get me wrong, I'd like to see GF on GH. I've only recently started watching GH, within the last year or two, so I'd love to see the legendary Laura on the show, especially with the way things have been going as of late.
I just don't see how it makes sense from Sony's business POV to let one of their actors go to a rival show, helping to boost that show's ratings.
Well, I agree, but at the same time, from a SOAP business standpoint, I wouldn't want ANY MORE soaps to die, b/c that's one step closer to MY soap dying. And if I am not going to utilize an actress/a character, then I would let him/her go.
Don't shoot the messenger for this somewhat 'surprising' spoiler. My sources tell me that the 'GIGANTIC surprise' that Frank Valentini has been teasing us with is Vanessa Marcil- soon to be not- Giovanazzo's return on the Monday, August 27th episode of GH as Brenda Barrett. Although nothing is 100% confirmed...
Thanks CarsonGH. Count me as one who, if this comes to pass, will not be thrilled if she returns. Like MB's bully I've never been enamored of her character. VM(soon to be minus the G), is an attractive woman but that's about where it ends for me. I've never thought that her Brenda would have inspired any man to throw himself at her feet. Honestly, she's always struck me as a silly adolescent. Finding her son, Alec, forced her to grow up to an extent. We shall see...
That WOULD be a pretty bad-ass get on Cartini's part!!
I have been wanting them to bring her back to rectify the pure CRAP! that Guza did to the character her last visit.
My wish: I want her & JAX to be together, MARRIED (though not really since Carly never signed the divorce papers!), and raising Alec together (turns out Alec is really his son). So both Sonny & Carly's heads would explode!!!!
Would also explain his absence from his daughter's life. And it would ensure that Sonny would never try to kill Jax again (b/c he wouldn't want to hurt Brenda like that again).
So, will the surprise return actually stay?? My guess is that clinic is holding a lot of 'dead' people. That's what makes me think this is NOT Brenda.
I will never understand why Guza did not capitalize on Sonny/Brenda/Jax triangle with Carly's head spinning like Linda Blair. Alec still could have been Brenda/Jax's son without pulling the Balkan or Dante into the story.
Agreed Laison4real, the same way I could never understand why Guza didn't do a PROPER love triangle with liason & jasam. Ratings gold both of those triangles would have been!
Jake is dead, Liz have 2 other kids also. Jiz is one of the most weird looking couples in daytime soaps. They have nothing. Mcsam is the hotest thing and just like LuSam,McSam will make Jiz look like they already do, weird. Jiz failed before and they will again, simply because Liz can't do couples. Actually she should have been gone and they should have kept Shovon and Lucky. Actually Liz and Jason need to go whereever their fangurl is, and take the bais and chaeting with them. GH will be a better soap to watch.
Miry,,,RC has managed to give the men and women on GH pairing options without ignoring the other fan bases. For example, Carly/Jax/Johnny/Todd, Liz/Jason/Ewen, Sam/Jason/John, Lulu/Dante/Johnny, Starr/Michael/Trey, Tracy/Joe Jr/Luke, Luke/Anna/Tracy, and has finally matured Sonny/Carly to the point where they have moved on from their habitual ONS!
As Jamey stated on the DC pod casts, it made absolutely no sense in the world to make Liz and Sam's friends after the Jakenapping stuff, because soaps are made of rivals and frenemies. Instead of capitalizing on Liason vs JaSam from 2008 onward, GH just shut it all down with a big ass whimper.
One of my favorite all time rivals/frenemies is Dorian and Viki on OLTL.
Liason - I could not have said it better. I have really enjoyed how RC has really catered to all of the fan bases. Instead of once a year, the Liason fans are enjoying weekly encounters! I'm just biding my time until Jason and Liz hit the sack again. LOL
I remember reading about a joint PA with SBu and RH, where SBu talked about bringing on Liason NOP 2, NOP3, NOP4, etc!
Yes, I really love what Ron is doing in that regard as well!!
You really have to try to cater to ALL the fanbases for a little bit of time at least.
When RC wrote for OLTL, we always saw John sharing scenes with one of his exes (Blair, Marty, Kelly, Natalie, Vangie, Mo, Curly, Larry,,,)etc, and the same for Clint with Viki, Dorian, Echo and Nora. Bo shared scenes with Nora, and whatever ex happened to be on the show at the time (Lyndsay, Alex, etc). There is no reason why exes can't share scenes even IF the pairing is no longer romantic.
EXACTLY!! That is definitely where Guza dropped the ball/failed miserably!
I mean, that is why we freakin' watch soaps!! To see the characters interact with each other, ESPECIALLY the ones that already have a history!
There should have been scenes of Jason through the years with his exes Robin and Liz, because he was always around Carly and Sam. There are still JnR fans out there, who would have liked seeing Jason and Robin share more than one scene a year.
Sonny should not be limited to sharing scenes with Kate, but with Alexis, Carly, Olivia, Sam, Brenda, etc, because the man does have a ton of history with those women, and shared a baby with most of them! Has Sonny spoken to Sam about their baby that died eight years ago? Does he even remember getting Sam pregnant?
Patrick is sitting around waiting on Robin to come back permanently into his life, when the man should have had at least one or two exes (not crazy ass Lisa) that he's sharing benefits with and then wham! along comes Robin and he's caught between his future and his past. Now that is soapy!
Spinelli has had one love interest in six years! WTH? Liz has not had sex since RH was pregnant two years ago! Alexis has not had sex since she was paired with Jerry back in 2008. Jeez. Guza really dropped the ball.
Oh, I know about those JnR fans (J&R 4EVA!!!!!!!), hehe, I am one of them!
I always hoped that SHE would be his end-game. She IS the only one that he has EVER left the mob for!!
But yeah, once again we are on the same page. All these ex's should have been allowed to interact more than a couple of times a year!
Have folks seen this?

The article was taken down. I just don't like this...
Here it is
Copy & paste plz, b/c the links do not work.
Here are a few things from GHH on the rumorville page:
Rumorville: Jerry faked Robin's death per Duke's request.
Duke and Jerry aren't the real perpetrators.
Alexis kills Jerry to save Shawn.
Kate remembers more about Connie and Johnny's conversation.
Joe Jr does something heroic.
Trey has another secret.
Molly thinks her world is ending..
Rumorville: Was that an anvil dropping the other day when Lulu said she was relieved with everything going on that she was not really pregnant? And if she does later discover that she has been pregnant all along, what effect would the exposure to the pathogen and its cure have on the developing fetus? Would Dante and Lulu see eye to eye on how to proceed?
John and Sam's past connection may be related to a very early storyline of Sam's.
Maxie may not be too pleased when Patrick and Emma become fond of the new "nanny".
Will Robin have reason to deliberately stay away from her family?
The newest addition to the PCPD will have Jason in his sights.
Jason may be set up to pay the piper for Franco's murder.
Who took the pictures of John and Sam kissing on the docks in July? Its not who you think.
When Sam's baby is returned...will all be revealed to all parties involved?
Thanks ahanshew. Lots of "goodies" to sift through. And a very realistic item for D&L should they bring it to pass. Something that touches/has touched many lives in the real world. Should they go with it, my hope is that they will approach the situation with balance and sensitivity as they did with L's abortion story previously. That had me bawling buckets. (Grain of salt as per usual.) Alexis killing Jerry? Sounds pretty Cassadine if they have her go through with it. I'm a little bothered by a new cop coming. It's been such a relief not to hear the name Franco for awhile. Is this to help usher SBu off the canvas? Sounds a bit lame but that's me. Enjoy what's left of your holiday, all...
Speaking of Lulu's abortion, did she ever tell Dante? I remember them approaching the topic, but I just can't remember the outcome. (I bawled buckets too!!)
Sending Jason to jail honestly makes the most sense. I would rather him regain his Q memories and ride off on his bike in to the sunset, but I am fairly certain I won't get that wish. I DO NOT want him killed off.
