Positive Solutions: GH

I think we can all agree that this has been a tumultuous week for daytime television and its fans. We have received news nearly every day of a soap actor or actress who has either been fired or has chosen to leave their respective shows.

If you were one of the many fans on twitter after the news broke that GH's Rebecca Herbst had been, as they say, "let go" you know how heated some of the discussions about her departure became. So many people were angered by this news and viewed it as one more slap in the face to daytime and its fans. People understandably wanted someone to blame and wanted to find a way to keep Rebecca on the show. If you were one of these people or are just looking to find something positive in all the negative that has happened in daytime recently, check out the post "GH Fans We Are Our Own Worst Enemies" by fellow soap blogger Silas Kain over at Soapbox1. In this post Silas not only discusses the firing of Rebecca Herbst, but James Franco, and his often overlooked contribution to the soap opera genre. In this post you will also find information on how you can voice your concerns about Rebecca's firing and ABC Daytime in a way that's both positive and hopefully more productive.

  1. Paula,

    My concern is that, based on last week's episodes, the GH writers are turning Elizabeth into a not-very-nice person and I'm wondering if they think this will make her exit make more sense. Really? It would be better if she just got a call from her sister and had to leave. That way, the kids could go with and then have something happen off screen and the kids come back. Or not. This way we wouldn't a)hate her by the time she met her untimely demise and b)hopefully break that "back from the dead" thing.

    By the way, doesn't James Franco look cute as a blonde?

  2. Hi Peggy!

    You could be right about that. I've been thinking they were going to do something to Johnny for a long time just because his character has become so unlikable. And I agree they need to have her exit be open so they can have her and/or her kids come back later.

    Ha ha! James Franco as a blonde, maybe in a less feminine wig. :) So cool that he got nominated for an Oscar while he is still doing appearances on GH.

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.
