Y&R WON’T Make Deal With Tristan Rogers

Last week General Hospital Blog posted regarding the possibility of a Robert Scorpio return. Although Actor Tristan Rogers is currently under contract with The Young and the Restless, it was believed the the executives over at the CBS soap would allow Tristan to co over to General Hospital from time to time.

Tristan Rogers (Colin Atkinson Y&R) hoped that his current contract would still allow him to make cameo appearances as Robert Scorpio on GH. Since Y&R star Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott) was allowed to film on Days of Our Lives during her contract, Rogers was under the impression that he would be allowed to do the same.

For now, the decision has been made. Tristan Rogers is under contract with CBS’ The Young and the Restless, and is not allowed to make any appearances on ABC’s General Hospital, as the legendary Robert Scorpio.

How do you feel about this decision from the executives at Y&R?

Do you think Tristan will jump shit and head over to GH after his contract is up with Y&R? Let us know by leaving your comments in the comment section.


GH’s Kelly Thiebaud (Dr. Britt Westbourne) Jumping Ship! Find Out Where She is Headed

There have definitely been some major shake ups this year when it comes to General Hospital ins and outs. A few months back it seemed like the actors from General Hospital and the Young and the Restless were bouncing back and forth from each of those two daytime dramas. Y&R gained General Hospital’s Steve Burton (Jason Morgan) and Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio, Colin Atkinson), while General Hospital gained Y&R’s Billy Miller (Billy Abbott, Jason Morgan), Michelle Stafford (Phylllis Newman, Nina Clay), and Maura West (Diane Jenkins, Ava Jerome), and more.

In more recent casting news, it has been confirmed that General Hospital’s Kelly Thiebaud (Dr. Britt Westbourne, aka The Britch) has been bumped from her contract with General Hospital to a recurring status. The newest piece of information that has caught wind by the soap opera social media is that Kelly Thiebaud is on her way to The Bold and the Beautiful. In a report from Soaps in Depth, there has been a General Hospital rumor floating around that B&B has made Kelly Thiebaud an offer she just cannot turn down. It has been rumored that Kelly will be joining the cast of The Bold and the Beautiful as Steffy Forrester.

A source at CBS denies this claim, leaving this rumor just as it is, a rumor. However, looking back on Billy Miller and the Jason Morgan saga, there was a siginificant amount of back and forth, even to the point of denial that this character was joining GH.

What do you think about this rumor? Will Kelly Thiebaud land a spot on the CBS soap, The Bold and the Beautiful?

Jason NOT Returning to General Hospital

I have been getting a lot of inquiries from fans wondering whether or not Steve Burton will be returning to GH as Jason Morgan. The answer for now is no. Steve Burton who played Jason Quartermaine/Morgan for 21 years on General Hospital has confirmed that he has signed on to The Young and the Restless on CBS. Obviously, things change at any given time in the soap world so there is not a solid answer on whether Steve will ever come back as Jason. For now, he is not. As for a recast of Jason, nothing has been said or confirmed on whether or not the character will eventually be played by another actor. Recently Steve Burton was a guest on The Talk and he explained how Y&R is willing to give him a flexible schedule so that he can keep his family in Tennessee where they choose to reside. This will make it easier for him to get back and forth to his family. I hope this clears up all the fan’s questions and concerns regarding Jason Morgan and Steve Burton’s status with General Hospital.
