What is going on in daytime? First news broke of Jay Kenneth Johnson and Shelly Hennig leaving Days of Our Lives. Then word began circulating that Babs Bloom was out at CBS Daytime, now we're hearing the unthinkable—Rebecca Herbst (Liz) has allegedly been fired from General Hospital! Numerous sources say the insanely popular star was told she will be written out of the soap this March. Un-FREAKING-Believable...
Look for Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth) to be back on our screens in mid-October, according to Soap Opera Weekly. The popular General Hospital veteran returned from maternity leave on Sept. 16, after having given birth to son Emerson Truett Saucedo on Aug. 9. This is Herbst's 3rd child with former GH costar Michael Saucedo (ex-Juan). Wishful Storytelling: Wouldn't it be great if once Brenda (Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo) learns Jake is Jason's son she starts pushing Liz and Super Jase (Steve Burton) back together? Now that would get the ratings up—not to mention Jason's shirt off!
Here’s the Scoop!
You go after my husband and then “kidnap” my kid… hell yeah, I’m going to threaten to end your life. Do I mean it literally? Most likely not. Apparently, Lisa Niles takes it seriously enough to report Robin to Lucky. Gee Lisa, when you took Emma without Robin or Patrick’s permission, they waited on calling the Police, but when it comes to a rightfully angered wife and mother, you go a tattle telling. Give me a break. Dr. Niles feels her life is in danger, especially when she finds her locker in shambles and convered in blood. Karma, Lisa – it's karma and it’s biting you right in the butt. Of course, Lisa is pointing fingers in Robin’s direction for the trashed locker. Could it be that Dr. Niles needs a doctor of her own to settle whatever is going wrong in that head of hers? READ MORE

Stephen Seidel from We Love Soaps TV went on the set of General Hospital and spoke with some of your favorite GH stars, including Maurice Benard. When Seidel asks if Sonny can ever get out of the mob I was reminded of the Reba McEntire's "Is There Life Out There" because let's face it, there's a whole lot of stuff Sonny hasn't done that doesn't involve the mob. Sonny Corinthos for Governor! GH fans who speculate about Sonny and Jason's (Steve Burton) relationship might also want to watch the clip.
Seidel also chats with Nancy Lee Grahn, Lexi Ainsworth, Jonathan Jackson, Rebecca Herbst, Dominic Zamprogna and Julie Marie Berman.
The performer of the day has got to be Aaron Refvem (Morgan). He started in on Carly about what’s wrong with their family, asked why it keeps falling apart, why everyone quits, and when he started crying, it just broke my heart. Then he said the line about Jax being with his real child and I felt even worse. Michael doesn’t like Jax, so he won’t care if Jax breaks up with Carly. Jocelyn is too young to know what’s going on, but Morgan is stuck in the middle. He's Sonny’s son, but he has been raised primarily by Jax and we can see they have a pretty strong relationship.
