Too Close for Comfort: GH

On Thursday's General Hospital Sam took Kristina to the clinic to get birth control pills. I won't even attempt to count how many things are wrong with that sentence. However, I do want to point out how disconcerting it was to hear Kristina drop hint after hint that Kiefer was pressuring her into having sex and Sam only telling her that she should wait until she is ready. Kristina already had the birth control in hand so obviously she is planning on doing this whether she is ready or not. Sam should have made a point to tell Kristina that if Kiefer was the right one for her he would not be pressuring her into doing something she was not ready to do. Moreover Sam should not be the one having this conversation with Kristina in the first place, Alexis should. Of course it is kind of difficult to be a mom to your own kids when you are busy trying to play mom to someone else's.

While Sam and Kristina were at the clinic, Alexis found Michael on the waterfront and took the opportunity to talk to him about his violent outbursts. She told him she was bothered by the fact that he hit Kiefer unprovoked and that she was afraid for Kristina and Molly to be around him. Fortunately Carly overheard most of this conversation and confronted Alexis herself. I just wish Carly had already had her baby at this point so she really could have put Alexis in her place. I am not a parent and even I know that one parent does not seek out the child of another parent to lecture them on their behavior. I wonder how Alexis would have handled Carly lecturing Kristina about Kiefer.

Elsewhere in Port Charles, Johnny told an all-too-happy Sonny that Olivia broke up with him, while Claudia headed over to the Metro Court to take another shot at seducing Dante. Having already been forced to wear a wire, Dante was instructed by Sonny to take some papers to Olivia at the Metro Court, where Claudia was already in her hotel room. Claudia called Dante and told him to meet her there, which he did without a moment's hesitation. Minutes later Sonny arrived at the Metro Court to talk to Olivia about her break-up with Johnny. Now just to keep this straight in my own mind, Claudia is seducing someone who is not only her stepson, but also the son of the woman who is barely the ex-girlfriend of her brother. Perhaps Claudia should consider venturing a little further outside her own gene pool before trying to get pregnant.

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.
