Arguably the most polarizing and heavily-debated daytime soap opera love triangle of this millennium (Give or take any combo of Sami Brady's 30 pairings on DAYS), has been Liason vs. JaSam on General Hospital. Fans of both pairings have stormed soap magazine polls, message boards and the comments of blogs like this one, to show their unyielding support for either #TeamJaSam or #TeamLiason.
Even bloggers got in on the fun. Yep, I'm biased. Sue me. Get yo' man before he leaves town, Nurse Liz (Rebecca Herbst). Climb those stairs!
Soon fans of Steve Burton's (Jason) enormously popular onscreen pairings with Herbst and Kelly Monaco (Sam) will have to come up with something else to fight over, as the actor and his character are leaving the soap opera.
In the Sept. 10-16 issue of TV Guide, Burton discusses how bad his timing is, considering the pair of broken hearts SuperJase will leave behind. Said Burton:
"There's a whole lot to wrap up quickly,' he admits. 'My timing isn't the greatest, but I can't control that. I gotta live my life."
Elizabeth Webber (Rebecca Herbst) is one lucky nurse on today's episode of General Hospital. She's got two hunky blondes—one with an accent—whipping out their big, ol' guns to fight to the death over her!
Methinks Liz should do a little kiss-kiss with both Ewen (Nathin Butler) and Jason (Steve Burton) before anybody goes bang-bang. Heck, she deserves it after being stuck between Laura's (Genie Francis) drippy sons! Watch a promo for today's General Hospital below. READ MORE
The rivalry between General Hospital’s Liason and JaSam has kept message boards and soap sites (like this one) hopping for years, but what does executive producer Frank Valentini think of the two popular couples? Access Hollywood asked Valentini at the ABC party for the TCA Summer Tour. Said Valentini:
“Yes, we’re obviously exploring that… Becky and Steve are just magnetic,” Frank told Access. “And it’s a different kind of love, it’s a friendship love, it’s an eternal love. It has so many prongs to it that’s interesting for the writers to write. And also, on the flip side, Jason and Sam have the same kind of thing — their love is a little bit more on fire.”
Nurse Elizabeth Webber (Rebecca Herbst) has no idea she's having coffee dates with the enemy on General Hospital. Liz's practically chaste romance with Dr. Ewen Keenan (Nathin Butler) could soon land our heroine in trouble, as the audience is now in on the secret that Ewen is one bad dude. Seriously, he's been electroshocking lil' Robin Scorpio (Kimberly McCullough)! READ MORE
Steve Burton, Rebecca Herbst and Maurice Benard joined a number of their General Hospital co-stars at the General Hospital Fan Club Luncheon on July 21.
