Here’s the Scoop! 12.15.08
Are we in store for a switcheroo? RUMORS say Claudia’s role in Michael’s shooting is about to get a bait and switch. While Jerry is still RUMORED to torture Claudia by leaving clues (DVD’s are RUMORED to be popping up) linking the Mafia Princess to the shooting that landed Michael in a coma, Claudia MAY not be responsible after all. RUMOR has it that we will learn there was another hit placed on Sonny that night and it’s that shooter’s bullet that hit Michael.
Sam doing more apologizing? After her “dream”, Sam MAY be once again apologizing for watching Jake get kidnapped. We’re still hearing Jason saves the day by saving Sam but Lucky will be looking for her as well. The RUMBLE out there is that Sam misses a dinner date with Lucky.
Scrubs Wedding… Family moments and touching vows.
Remember when Luke reported reliable sources had Natalia Livingston possibly coming back to General Hospital in a new role? Soap Opera Digest ran, not walked to a "setside source" who dismissed the claim as coming from rumor mongers with "too much time on their hands" Funny how the same magazine went back to the network for this issue to seek confirmation on Livingston's return and was told a firm "no comment".
Well we can tell you several of our reliable sources are saying it is indeed a done deal. Livingston will be returning to the ABC soap in a new role. Lucky for Daytime Confidential readers and podcast listeners we have enough "time on our hands" to accurately break the stories you you guys wanna know about, but by all means we encourage the mags to keep wasting valuable copy space attempting to discredit us. It makes it so much more fun when people like Agnes Nixon herself prove we were right all along in the pages of Ad Age. Smooches.

Here's the Scoop! 12.04.08
Claudia shows some compassion? Say it isn't so? RUMORS have the Mafia Princess showing some real emotion when she hears that Jake Spencer has been kidnapped by the Russian mobsters. What else is Claudia up to? Trying to bed her husband and ripping into her brother's girlfriend. Too bad Johnny hears all Claudia has to say to Lulu. Another wedge between Johnny and his family?
Does Sam pull away? RUMORS have Sam pulling away when Lucky kisses his girlfriend. Is this all a lead up to a LuSam break-up? I know, I'm confusing you all as there are RUMORS about LuSam making some forward progress in their relationship, a rarity on General Hospital. I think what will see is some progress with LuSam, maybe even one of those commitments we've been dishing on but as usual with GH, what goes up must come down. Don't be surprised if we see Lucky and Sam breaking up. READ MORE
One reader over at TV Guide.com seems to think Grey's Anatomy's ghostmance between Izzy (Katherine Heigl) and her very dead lover Denny was inspired by Grey's daytime cousin General Hospital's creepy, "spirited" reunion between Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) and Emily (Natalia Livingston). Here's what the reader asked, followed by a response from Matt Mitovich:
With regards to Grey's Anatomy and Denny's ghost being "real" to Izzy, this exact same story played out on General Hospital last year between Nikolas and Emily. If this ends the way that did, Izzy has a brain tumor. — Kathy
MATT: By that thinking, Izzy would then fall in love with the pretty nurse who helps her through the health crisis, and we know ABC ain't having any more of that. Besides, Grey's boss Shonda Rhimes insists that the ghost story "won't involve... a brain tumor." That leads me to believe that Izzy is, as Liz Lemon puts it, "staunchly in favor of Cocoa Puffs," and that Katherine Heigl's character will be leaving the show in a designer (and, one can only hope, Emmy-caliber) straight jacket."
