Here’s the Scoop! 03.10.09
Who finds out next about Claudia’s involvement in Michael’s shooting? Ric? Jax? Both? RUMORS say Ric will find out but it MAY not stop with Sonny’s brother. Remember I mentioned way back when that Jax MAY be learning the truth and keeping it to himself? Would that cause trouble for the reunited CarJax? Just yesterday we talked about them being OK but I also mentioned that when Sonny is involved, Carly usually gets sucked back into the vortex. IF and when Jax finds out about Claudia ordering the hit that sent Michael into coma-land, would he tell Carly or keep it to himself? That earlier mentioned vortex MAY have Jax stopping himself as he’s afraid that telling Carly what he knows will send her straight to Sonny and into his life. Who tells Jax? SPOILERS say it’s Olivia who gets her boss the DVD. That’s rich considering she torched the one Kate had during the crisis. READ MORE
DC's Regan has been talking about possible casting drama taking place at General Hospital ever since news of the massive ABC pay cuts first broke. Now comes news from TV Guide Canada's Nelson Branco that the jobs and/or contractual statuses of Leslie Charleson (Monica), Megan Ward (Kate), Greg Vaughan (Lucky) and Rebecca Herbst (Liz) are on shaky ground and that Rick Hearst's (Ric) future with the soap isn't looking to bright either. I'd love to say I'm surprised, but I'm not.
Charleson plays a Quartermaine, and GH has made it all-too clear how they feel about this insanely-popular family. In recent years they've killed off Emily, Alan and Justus and wrote out Ned and Dillon, plus Charleson is over 40 and we know how Brian Frons feels about older actors on his soaps! READ MORE
While this hasn't been confirmed yet by General Hospital. Sources claim Maurice Benard (Sonny) has indeed re-signed with the show for an undetermined amount of time. Of course, silly dreamer soap fan that I am, I would hope this means a Skate reunion is on the horizon for Benard and the amazingly-underrated Megan Ward (Kate Howard), but why ever would General Hospital write an organic, character-driven storyline when they can simply try to recapture old lightening between Benard and Sarah Brown? This question is of course rhe-frons-ical.

It looks like it's a light SCOOP day.... Q & A Day! Fire in with the questions and I'll do my best to answer them.
I dropped this in the comments yesterday: SO,,,, conflicting reports. In an Interview, Tristan Rogers said he was only on for 4 days and that he's back in town for Robin's wedding. Something along the lines that old relationships would have to wait for his next trip into PC. NOW, some are saying once again that Luke and Robert do share the screen. Here's the thing, I am the first person to warn that the mags don't always get it right either and that there is this little thing called spin that publicists get paid for. HOWEVER, Tristan is usually a pretty stand up guy so I don't seeing him giving false info in an interview. IF this is his attempt at dodging the question because he can't talk about it, it wasn't that great. No Offense Tristan, I still think you're the greatest. Also in that interview, Rogers said the show had not approached him to return after this limited run. READ MORE

It's the last day of September, my birthday month coming to a close so let's end it with a little Liason. Kate's been shot, obviously the trip to Italy is off...where will the angst filled couple go from here? As I've mentioned, Jason uses a visual aid, Kate in her hospital bed, to try to get through to Elizabeth. She walks out of the room and he thinks she's finally got the message loud and clear. Boy oh boy are boys dumb! Elizabeth pops up at Jason's office and informs him otherwise. She's here to stay. The paint fight is coming and the injury I mentioned yesterday? Well it looks like Jason hurts his ankle or leg. Will Elizabeth nurse him back to health? More meetings coming up for my favorite pair. They'll meet at the Studio before she pops in at his office.
Anthony in the balcony with a rifle. That was the easiest game of Clue ever! Claudia tells the fam that Karpov is innocent and she'll go to Sonny with the assurance that the Z's had nothing to do with Kate's shooting. Sure... just like you had nothing to do with the bullet in Michael's head. READ MORE
