General Hospital News And Spoilers: Alicia Leigh Willis Reveals Maurice Benard’s Behind-The-Scenes Behavior Caused Her To Leave GH

Maurice Benard and Alicia Leigh Willis played alongside one another as brother and sister on General Hospital. Alicia joined the cast in December of 2001 through February 2006. In an interview with her former co-star, Willis reveals why she left GH.

General Hospital news reports confirm Maurice Benard recently interviewed his former co-star and TV sister, Alicia Leigh Willis. Alicia portrayed Sonny’s sister Courtney Matthews and is the mother of Sonny’s nephew Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez). On a recent episode of the YouTube series State Of Mind, General Hospital spoilers reveal Alicia Leigh Willis opened up about her time at General Hospital.

In an intensely insightful State of Mind interview, Willis admits her reason for leaving General Hospital. When discussing Benard’s struggle with mental health, Alicia and Maurice opened up about his behind-the-scenes behavior. According to Willis, Benard’s behavior played a part in her GH exit.

“I didn’t know what you were going through,” Willis confessed. “All I knew is that you and I were really close. And I always had a way of taking things really personally. So if someone was in a bad mood around me, I felt like it was my fault, like I had done something.

“So for a long time, I didn’t know which Maurice I was gonna get,” she added. “One day you were the most charming, amazing… and then another day I was a little scared. I was just like, does he hate me? Did I do something? I didn’t understand at the time.

Things Get Dark

Alicia reflected on some dark times while on the set of General Hospital. “I remember the last year of the show was really dark,” she admitted. “I would go to my dressing room and I would just cry. And it wasn’t just that. That was a big part of it, but I felt like we had such a good connection. That was a big reason. So much was disclosed in this interview, as fans saw a new dynamic between Sonny and Courtney’s portrayers. “This is the first time I’ve ever actually said that out loud,” she added. “Because people said, ‘Why are you leaving the show? They’re offering you another four years. You’re a working actress. What are you doing?’ And I’m like, “I can’t stay. I’m so unhappy.’” Willis acknowledged that she has a better understanding now of what TV brother was going through. “This is the first time I’ve ever actually said that out loud,” she said. “Because people said, ‘Why are you leaving the show? They’re offering you another four years. You’re a working actress. What are you doing?’ And I’m like, “I can’t stay. I’m so unhappy.’”

It sounds like Willis and Benard have come to an understanding. “After I saw the Oprah interview, it clicked,” she told Benard. “And now the journey that you are on is so incredible. Because people need to talk about it. I wish we had talked about it 20 years ago! If we had had this kind of dialogue back then? Think of how much easier it would have been for all of us to just talk to each other.”

Nina tips off SEC. Will Nina destroy Carly? Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros) hasn’t faced the worst of what’s coming her way. Currently, Nina blames Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) for every wrong in her life. She can’t accept her relationship with Willow for what it is. Therefore, her delusions blame Carly for her toxic interactions with Willow Tait (Katelyn MacMullen).

Meanwhile, General Hospital spoilers reveal Nina wants revenge. True, Aunt Liesl (Kathleen Gati) was able to talk Nina down when her Carly-fueled anger had her confessing her ability to kill Carly. However, she becomes triggered again when she learns she isn’t Willow’s match.

General Hospital Spoilers: Heather Played Ryan For A Fool, Maggie Fitzgerald Is Heather Webber?!

Heather and Esme GH Maggie Fitzgerald is Heather Webber

Maggie Fitzgerald is Heather Webber? Heather Webber (Alley Mills) will do anything- and we mean anything. Especially, for her daughter. Her level of crazy reached the point where she is willing to do what it takes to reach her end goal.

As a mother, Heather will do what it takes to reach her goal- that goal is getting close to Esme. General Hospital spoilers reveal that Heather is playing Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom) for a fool. Ryan believes Heather hasn’t had contact with their daughter Esme since she gave her up many years ago. That’s what he believes because that is what Heather told him. However, Heather isn’t known for her truth telling, but, more like for her ability to tell a tall tale.

There are reasons to believe Heather was in contact with Esme more than she let Ryan believe. To start, General Hospital rumors tease that Heather may have expected Esme to recognize her. When she first approached her daughter in Spring Ridge, Heather learned Esme had amnesia. After becoming aware of Esme’s memory loss, Heather said, “that explains it!” to herself as it hit her. It’s almost as if she expected Esme to recognize her but realized why she hadn’t.

Esme is sort of weirded out by this woman’s interest in her. Meanwhile, Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) is trying to figure out Esme’s past. GH spoilers indicate Sam’s investigation stirs up some strange secrets of the past. Additionally, GH recaps recall Sam and Esme discussing Maggie. Heather’s interests peaked at the word “nanny,” sending suspicious vibes.

Why is Heather so curious about the nanny? Perhaps, if Sam gets too close, she’ll figure out Heather’s big secret! Maggie Fitzgerald is Heather Webber?!

General Hospital Spoilers: Josh Kelly’s Sticking Around GH, Gushes About Co-Star Kirsten Storms- What’s In Store For Cody?

Mac is Cody’s father Josh Kelly Cody Bell

Mac is Cody’s father. That fact may be all Cody needs to stick around Port Charles. So, when will he tell the truth about his paternity? Cody Bell (Josh Kelly) is a con artist, plain and simple. He may have a teddy bear look to him and a good heart underneath, but, he’s a con artist nonetheless.

General Hospital spoilers reveal Cody is lost without direction, especially since Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) unexpected death. However, just because his first love interest died in a heart wrenching tragedy, that doesn’t mean he has no purpose in PC. Also, it most definitely doesn’t mean a new love interest come along.

General Hospital news reports reveal, in a recent interview, Josh Kelly opens up about Cody Bell’s life in PC. He discusses his relationship with Mac Scorpio (John J. York), and reminds fans that Cody and Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms) aren’t actually related (😉, 😉). He describes his dynamic with Kirsten as a brother/sister vibe. However, that doesn’t have to be the case for Cody and Maxie.

Josh Kelly explains, “I think he’s always felt like he didn’t belong anywhere, but if he belongs anywhere, it’s in Port Charles. He’s got Dante and Mac and Mac’s whole family — even Maxie, even though they’re not technically related. Kirsten [Storms, Maxie] and I have a really fun time together; it seems like we have kind of a brother/sister friendship because we’re always giggling when we have scenes and we have to be like, ‘Okay, stop, stop.’ But he really does like Mac’s family and wants to stay friends with Mac even though he lied about the paternity test.”

I know that we’re excited to see Josh Kelly stick around as Cody Bell. There’s so much to be discovered about Cody; starting with whatever he and Dante are hiding. Will Sam (Kelly Monaco) get to the bottom of it?

Nina blames Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) for the breakdown of her relationship with her daughter, Willow. Her insufferable victim mentality may have Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) fooled, but many can see Nina’s true colors.

General Hospital recaps recall just weeks ago, Nina talked Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) off the kedge. Grief stricken by losing her daughter, Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud), Liesel was ready to do the unthinkable. She blames Esmé Prince for taking Britt’s life and was ready to obtain her pound of flesh.

General Hospital spoilers reveal the shoe was on the other foot when Nina’s anger toward Carly drove her to admit her dark desires. “I could kill her,” is what Nina said to Aunt Liesl, followed by her want to make Carly pay. Liesl tried to talk her down, however, more bad news is likely to ignite a fire within Nina. And all that rage is for her one true nemesis, Carly Corinthos.
