Taking Chances: GH

On Friday's General Hospital Claudia continued to try to seduce Dante. When he resisted her advances she told him that she knew his true identity and that if he didn't want Sonny to know he had to do everything she said, whenever she said. Fortunately for Dante, Ronnie decided to act like a cop for perhaps the first time in his career and sent some officers in the hotel room to arrest him. Later on, Ronnie told Dante that he was off the case. Of course Dante protested, even insisting that he would resign from the force if he had to and collect evidence against Sonny as a citizen. As hard as I try I cannot imagine a world where a private citizen could collect evidence against the head of a mob organization and expect to have that evidence be admissible in court.

A while after Dante's "arrest", Claudia walked into the Metro Court lobby, still buttoning up her shirt. Unfortunately for her, Sonny was in the lobby talking to Carly and saw this display. Of course these days Sonny seems easily fooled so I am sure Claudia will have no trouble coming up with an excuse that he will believe. Personally I would like to hear her explain why it took her so long to button up her shirt, because from what I saw in her scenes with Dante that is the only article of clothing she ever unbuttoned.

Elsewhere Patrick decided to go to Jake's for karaoke night. Robin couldn't go so he somehow ended up going with Louise Addison, the ADA, who apparently knew him from college because her friend used to date him. And after seeing the way Louise acts around him I think she could create trouble for Patrick and Robin down the road. In fact, I think she may be the type of woman who only wants men that are already in relationships. This may be why she showed such an interest in Max at the carnival. Maxie also thought that Louise might be a threat. She even warned Robin that she needed to spice up her marriage before she lost Patrick to an opportunistic woman. Maxie later decorated Robin's living room like a planet from outer space and instructed Robin to wear a shiny alien costume and surprise Patrick when he came home. Little did Robin know, Patrick and Louise had decided to get some food and bring it home to Robin, so the surprise was actually on her.

Meanwhile, Olivia had decided to go to Jake's after Sonny told her that he was no longer an option for her. When she arrived she saw Johnny at the bar and decided to sit at the opposite end. Moments later Jake's temporary bartender, also known as American Idol alum Chikezie Eze, walked onstage to sing the Phil Collins hit "Against All Odds". This was the perfect song choice for this scene because it showcased how heartbroken Olivia and Johnny were. I am afraid that I cannot say the same for the choice to have Chikezie perform on the show. While I like the idea of having a former American Idol contestant sing at Jake's for karaoke night, I think that there are booted Idols with better voices. In my opinion Chikezie just seemed a little out of tune through his whole performance. In fact it was difficult to tell whether the pain on Olivia and Johnny's faces was from being heartbroken or from their ears hurting. I thought Johnny actually sang better when he performed Otis Redding's classic hit "Try a Little Tenderness" at the piano. I will say this for Chikezie, his acting was actually not that bad. Granted, the show only gave him a few lines to work with, but through the years I have certainly seen various soaps cast actors in leading and supporting roles with a lot less ability.

Could Guiding Light Alum Stephanie Gatschet Be Looking to Return to Daytime?

I stumbled upon something interesting while scrolling through Instagram last night. It was a comment posted in response to a General Hospital video. The video was reposted by actress Laura Wright (Carly, GH; ex-Cassie,GL). The response came from actress Stephanie Gatschet.

You may recall that in addition to playing Madison North on All My Children, Gatschet played Cassie's daughter, Tammy, on Guiding Light.

Gatschet's comment to Wright was "I miss creating melodrama...keep an eye out for a good role for little ol' me. I wanna play!"  (Check out the screenshot below)

So could Gatschet be eyeing a return to daytime? How cool would it be to see her starring opposite Laura Wright again?

Gatschet most recently starred in the web series Misguided.

GL Alum Launches Indiegogo Campaign for Music Video!

UPDATE: Morgan Englund's Indiegogo campaign is now 76% funded. To meet his goal, $2,418 will need to be donated by June 2nd. 

To hear Morgan talk about his song Homeward Bound, be sure to check out my interview with him from last week at

Guiding Light alum Morgan Englund (Dylan Lewis) has launched an Indiegogo campaign to help fund a music video for a song he wrote called "Homeward Bound (A Firefighter's Song)", a fitting title and song for the actor who has worked as both a firefighter and paramedic. 

Englund is hoping to raise $10,000 for the creation of the video, which will be directed by Andrea Shreeman. So far $3,199 has been donated to the campaign with a month left to go. Numerous perks are up for grabs for those wishing to contribute to the video's funding. $5 will get you a thank you shout out on social media from Englund, while the biggest perk, at $1500, will earn you an executive producer credit and a VIP visit to the set.
