Get a Peek at Roger Howarth, Kristen Alderson and Michael Easton in Their New General Hospital Roles! (VIDEO)By Jillian Bowe on May 06, 2013
Say goodbye to the so-called Llanview Three and hello to Port Charles' newest residents! Sort of.
In this week’s SOAPnet promo for General Hospital, Roger Howarth, Kristen Alderson and Michael Easton return to PC as new characters with new looks. Meanwhile, Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Shawn (Sean Blakemore) turn Crimson's offices into the O.K. Corral.
It seems Katie Couric did a bit more than guest on General Hospital, as the unscrupulous reporter who tried to get the dirt from Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) about his family. According to The Huffington Post, Couric revealed she helped come up with her character.
"I did actually help the writers come up with that storyline," Couric said on her show. "Sleazy tabloid reporters actually sneak into hospitals."
It looks like the enemy of Tracy’s enemy will soon be her friend. TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan caught up with Jane Elliot who revealed Tracy and Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) go into business together to beat AJ (Sean Kanan). However, that’s not the only twist! The war over Tracy and AJ’s different Pickle-Lila recipes will land them on The Chew in an epic “Clash of the Condiments.”
Do Tracy's plans go off without a hitch? Hardly. "Nikolas gets cold feet about sabotaging A.J. and he traps Tracy in her hotel with two beefy bodyguards to keep her away from The Chew," Elliot says. "Tracy miraculously gets away and bursts into the studio while A.J. is being interviewed, much to his chagrin." Adds the actress: "Frank will kill me if I say anything more. Let's put it this way: This is the denouement of the relish storyline and things are going to take a very interesting turn."
The “Clash of the Condiments” will take place on General Hospital on May 13 and 14. Read the entire preview at TVGuide.com.

I was lucky enough to steal time with the very fun McCullough, who told me about the ABC Directing program, a GH alum she recently spent time with and of course I asked her about her adorable on-screen daughter Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma).
The General Hospital fan in McCullough is up-to-date on all the happenings in Port Charles , while the director in her had a tip for the Nurse’s Ball. McCulloiugh also dished about the possibility of a Robin return.
