GH: Recast?

Posted by ghhshirley on Wednesday, January 18, 2012, In : General Hospital Rumors 
Rumorville:  Those of you who follow our News Page know there is a new casting call out there.  I have already said in the Spoilerholic thread in our forum that it was most likely a male.  I have now seen the side and the fact is that the role of "Erik" sounds suspiciously similar to the role of Michael Corinthos, currently occupied by Chad Duell.  Oh...and in this version, "Jason" agrees to allow "Erik" to join to mob. See our GH News Page for a link to the audition script....

GH: Christmas Goodies

Posted by ghhshirley on Thursday, November 17, 2011,
Rumorville:  Expect a Christmas Party that will take several episodes to get through.

Dante, Lulu, Robin, Patrick, Johnny, Spinelli, Maxie, Matt, Jason, Sam will be among those in attendance.  Expect Liz to make an appearance as well.

Unfortunately, it appears that Lulu will be taking on way too much holiday cheer in the form of booze during the party.
Ethan has his fair share too.

Spinelli continues to patiently court Maxie...perhaps waiting for her to tire herself out (with Matt)?

Soaps Future on the Web

Posted by ghhshirley on Friday, July 22, 2011, In : General Hospital Rumors 
Rumorville:  The gossip mill has it that if/when ABC cancels GH in 2012 (as many are predicting to be inevitable despite ABC claims to the otherwise), Prospect Park has rights to broadcast the show for 10 years, just as in the case of AMC and OLTL.

On a related note, apparently Prospect Park has been slow to begin negotiations with most of the AMC cast, fueling rumors that AMC's start on the web will be delayed until January of 2012.  Original reports had AMC slated to premiere on the web in ...

1,2, or 3...Who Will It Be?

Posted by ghhshirley on Wednesday, July 6, 2011, In : General Hospital Rumors 
Rumorville: For weeks now, rumors have been swirling about the possibility of one or more Quartermaines returning (beyond Monica).  On Tuesday's episode, Eddie Q. and Carly did some name dropping regarding Edward's potential heirs beyond Michael. Predictably, Dillon and Ned were mentioned, but it was the last person mentioned (and whether he had any offspring) that should have us all sitting up and taking notice...Jimmy Lee Holt.

Jimmy Lee,

ABC Refusing to Sell?

Posted by ghhshirley on Friday, June 24, 2011, In : General Hospital Rumors 
Rumorville:  Rumors are growing stronger that ABC has received offers from other networks to purchase All My Children and One Life To Live and has declined to sell both shows. This, despite their previous, public, assurances that they would be more than willing to sell the two productions. If true, the question is why? 

Some say it is because they don't want egg on their face should these shows go on to success elsewhere.  Others say that they want to keep the shows (OLTL in particular) ...

GH: Leslie Charleson Hopeful...

Posted by ghhshirley on Sunday, May 29, 2011,
Leslie Charleson tweeted the following this weekend:

"You may have heard from some of my cast mates that I was contacted by GH regarding my "availability". That's true, however, the reason you haven't heard anything about it directly from me is that I wanted to make sure that "Monica" was going to have scenes worth talking about before saying anything to you.  With Guza gone, I'm hopeful and will keep you posted as soon as I know anything worth sharing."

"I ran into Steve Burton the other day ...

Nancy Lee Grahn is full of optimism regarding the head writer switch. Here is a composite of her tweets, with minor editing for clarity:

"As soon as the new stuff kicks in it's going to be much better, hopefully there will be something for everyone. I think it'll be great. You've no idea how much faith I have in this new shift at GH. Come aboard. We've aborted North Atlantic, gotten off the Titanic, and aboard the Love Boat."

GH: Guza's Reaction

Posted by ghhshirley on Friday, May 20, 2011, In : General Hospital Rumors 
Rumorville:  Word is that it was General Hospital's Executive Producer, Jill Farren Phelps, rather that ABC Daytime head Brian Frons, who was the bearer of the bad news to Guza.  Supposedly, Guza stormed out of the ABC offices right then and there.  This may be where the, "effective immediately", came from in the ABC press release regarding the change in head writers, as well as the lack of public thank you's for Guza's contributions to the show.

GH: Writers React to Garin Wolf Replacing Bob Guza

Posted by ghhshirley on Thursday, May 19, 2011,
Karen Harris  (former GH writer, let go by GH in 2010, friend of Bob Guza), "I walked the picket lines with a whole bunch of terrific writers. Garin [Wolf] quit the WGA [Writer's Guild of America] so he could scab. This is his reward. I'm sad, because there are others there who are better writers and deserve it more." 

Brenda Lunsford Lilly  (former TV Writer, but not for GH),  "For you fans who don't understand the politics of this -his crossing the picket line against his co- writers ...

New Life for Stars of Cancelled Soaps

Posted by ghhshirley on Thursday, April 28, 2011,

GH: Casting

Posted by ghhshirley on Monday, April 25, 2011, In : General Hospital Rumors 
Rumorville:  Apparently GH is casting the recurring role of Javier, who is hispanic, early 30's, sexy intense, dangerous and charasmatic.  (It is said to be short term, 2 to 4 weeks, at least for now.)

In other news, rumors continue that General Hospital may be on the chopping block for the fall of 2012. The only thing that seems certain is that a decision will be made either way by February of 2012.  Meanwhile, GH is facing some deep budget cuts.

GH: Lisa's Plan

Posted by ghhshirley on Thursday, April 21, 2011, In : General Hospital Rumors 
Rumorville:  So what does Lisa initially hope to gain by drugging Robin?  According to one version, Kristina passes out from the drug while babysitting Emma. Lisa uses that opportunity to plant spycams in Robin and Patrick's house. Apparently, Lisa wants to observe how the reconciliation is progressing. She is hoping to see if there is anything she can use to break the couple apart. The situation worsens when Lisa observes more than she bargained for--and she is none to happy about it either....

AMC & OLTL Be Canceled?

Posted by ghhshirley on Friday, April 1, 2011, In : General Hospital Rumors 
Rumorville:  The buzz is that ABC is not just planning to cancel All My Children in the coming days but will very likely cancel One Life to Live, as well.  According to TVGuide, word is that ABC Daytime chief Brian Frons has a talk show and reality show lined up for fall — both of them much cheaper to produce than soaps — and he needs to clear the schedule. More disturbing, insiders say Frons has been extremely cavalier about all this, showing no signs of sorrow or regret about a dra...
