Former General Hospital heartthrob Michael Sutton (Ex-Stone) chatted with TV Guide's Michael Logan on what to expect when Robin's (Kimberly McCullough) first love returns.
TV Guide Magazine: This time around, Stone is not a spirit or a ghost. It's more like he's in Robin's battered psyche, right?
Sutton: Yeah. She's exhausted and delirious and feels like she wants to give up. She's ready for her life to be over, even though she has a baby at home, and it's like Stone is giving her a pep talk. It's a chance for the two characters to have closure, a chance to put the past in the past and move on. But it's all in Robin's mind. She has all the wisdom she needs inside of her, inherently, and she just needs a reminder.
Sutton also reveals the possibility of Stone popping back onto GH to have talks with Sonny (Maurice Benard).
Here’s the Scoop!
Kudos to Maurice Benard and Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo as Brenda and Sonny have not missed a beat. The story behind it though, not sure I’m behind it. I must admit, it sort of bores me. Of course there is plenty coming up for Ms. Barrett who will not be Mrs. Sinclair. Not that any of us are surprised, Brenda is not going to be paired with some movie star when she can be with a mobster. It’s The Balkan and his minions that are still an issue for the philanthropic model as Brenda makes another escape from The Balkan’s men. Suzanne makes a call to the States for help. Its Jason to the rescue as Suzanne wants him to travel to Rome to protect his ex-wife. Despite thinking Brenda is a royal pain in the you know what, Jason heads to Rome to check on her. READ MORE
Our last hopes at reigniting the "Supercouple" as a phenomenon are finally back in one another's orbits. That's right General Hospital fans, Sonny and Brenda (Maurice Benard and Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo) are together at last, and ABC Soaps in Depth has their sexyliciousness oozing all over their latest cover!
Let's hope this reunion finally gives GH and its ratings the boost we've all been so desperately waiting for. Check out a teaser blurb from this week's Soaps in Depth after the jump: READ MORE
It seems General Hospital head writer Bob Guza must think fans doth protest too much concerning their expressed desire to be rid of the mob in Port Chuck. In the latest issue of ABC Soaps in Depth, Guza vehemently defends GH's mob storylines, which he maintains viewers don't really want to see end. Here's what Guza had to say about the possibility of Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jason (Steve Burton) leaving their mobtacular ways behind them:
"I don't think people want to see that. By putting them in these situations, we have the highest stakes possible of life and death. They have to make incredibly-difficult moral choices all the time. What I will defend to my last breath is that we do not glorify it! the head writer continues. "Sonny is the most haunted character on the show. Jason is turning into one of them. If they just merely shot people and weren't haunted by it, then yes, I think we would be open to the criticism. But they're not. It is never taken lightly. I guarantee you that." READ MORE
Watching the ABC daytime lineup lately has been a little déjà vu for this old time soap viewer. Perhaps “copying” is too strong a term. Maybe “homage” would be a better word or, perhaps, “sticky fingers.” On the other hand, the stories in question here are different from either classic soap opera tropes (boy/girl-meets-hates-falls-in-love-with-girl/boy stuff) or classic soap cliches (supervillain-returns-from-the-dead-with-an-evil-twin shenanigans) because of their very specificity.
All three of the ABC’s daytime dramas currently are airing stories or arcs that have been a little too close to the mark of several cancelled Proctor & Gamble shows, begging the question “Does Brian Frons really admire those old, now defunct serials as much as he loves pilfering CBS soap stars?” Let us count the ways: READ MORE
Oceans apart, day after day and I slowly go insane... "Right Here Waiting" by Richard Marx.
Over the years we've poked fun at our pals at ABC Soaps In Depth for all their Brenda Barrett covers, but in this week's issue, it ain't smoke and mirrors— Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo truly IS back and she's got Maurice Benard (Sonny) on the cover with her!
That sound you hear is BrenSon fans racing to their nearest Wal-Mart, Krogers or Piggly Wiggly (Are they still in business back home?) to buy a copy of this red-hot issue of the zine, but before y'all get out the door, check out the teaser blurb below! READ MORE
