Old Habits: GH

Spinelli should be grateful that Maxie did not want to marry him because obviously it does not take much to turn her head. Granted she and Franco have great chemistry. And of course General Hospital could not have a movie star join the show without giving him a "love" interest, but Franco made Maxie look like a foolish young girl. In fact as the days pass I think Maxie will find that she has a lot to be embarrassed about. Not only did it take very little for her to cheat on Spinelli, but she essentially slept with Franco on a dare, all the while convincing herself that she was in control of the situation. However, Franco was the only one that really got anything out of their encounter. He was able to use someone close to Jason for his perverse mind games and get that same person to basically insist on sleeping with him, all without ever having to agree to do the Crimson shoot.

From the moment Maxie met Franco it was obvious that she was attracted to him and did not trust herself to be alone with him. And even though she didn't try very hard to resist him, his misogynistic attitude seemed to melt away any resolve she might have had. Most women would consider misogyny an unattractive quality, but then again Maxie isn't most women. With great insight and minimal effort, Franco was able to bring out vintage Maxie, the Maxie that saw any opportunity to self-destruct and took it. And whatever else Franco might be, I think he is an observer of human nature, pointing out and exploiting weaknesses, emotional or otherwise. He certainly found Maxie's Achilles' heel and was able to use that to his advantage. And I suspect he may be trying to use this same talent to expose Jason's.

  1. Well thank goodness the only "bodice ripping" was his. Kinda disappointed in Maxie.

  2. Sometimes I wonder what the writers were thinking when they write something SO OUT OF CHARACTER that is makes us ALL cringe. Not only do we now think Maxie is a moralless slut and faithless friend, but the once saavy quick woman has turned into inept, lame high schooler who wants to be a femme fatale. I was disgusted. What WERE they THINKING? or maybe they weren't thinking at all. The whole thing is waaay off kilter for me.

  3. I think you hit it. Also, as for Jason being an artist, his art is in his crimes.

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!

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.
