Former General Hospital scribe Bob Guza is having the last laugh on ABC for replacing him with Garin "Woman In White" Wolf. This past Saturday, Guza, along with writers Nathan Fissell, David Goldschmid, Karen Harris, Elizabeth Korte, Mary Sue Price, Susan Wald, Tracey Thomson, Meg Bennett (Guza's wife) and former GH-turned-The Bold and the Beautiful writer Michele Val Jean, took home the Writers Guild of America (WGA) award for daytime drama series writing.
Outspoken soap diva Nancy Lee Grahn set the Twitter world ablaze last night, by disclosing some shocking claims about former General Hospital scribe Bob Guza. Grahn told fans the reason the Alexis and Sonny (Maurice Benard) pairing was split up was due to Guza. According to Grahn:

Disgusting and depraved are generally not words you would ever think to use in a sentence concerning anything associated with beloved General Hospital heroine Robin Scorpio (Kimberly McCullough).Today's episode of GH, however, was quite possibly the most horrifying, unnerving hour of daytime television I've ever witnessed — and not in a good way.

Former General Hospital star Tristan Rogers is weighing in on Bob Guza’s firing at General Hospital. In a must read post on his website, TristanRogers.com, Rogers gives his take on Guza's legacy and those who have contributed to demise of ABC Daytime.
Many things have been said regarding Bob’s writing some of them fair and some of them less so. Let’s have a look at what will probably be regarded as his legacy. We have a “mob influenced storyline” and the fact that he had little respect for women. And then there’s the systematic dismantling of most of General Hospitals legacy, including that of Luke and Laura, to be replaced by the noble deeds and example set by a bunch of “bargain basement criminals”. I am sure I will get some flack for that statement but the fact remains that whatever thoughts, you the fan harbor in your mind and heart about this relationship the show itself has done everything possible to trash and disassemble it. I don’t think there’s any legacy or standard on GH that has been untouched, in some way, by this wholesale “story slaughter”.

According to ABC Soaps In Depth, General Hospital head writer and show consultant Bob Guza has been let go. No, I'm not drunk blogging. The magazine tweeted Guza will be replaced by Garin Wolf, who infamously went financial core status during the 2007-2008 Writers Strike, when Guza and other scribes were on the picket lines, fighting for the rights of all writers. I know Guza isn't particulary a fan fave these days, but to replace him with a scabber? Lord in the morning...
