General Hospital Spoilers: Billy Miller’s GH Contract

BillySteveLast week, the shocking news broke out, confirming Steve Burton’s EXIT from The Young and the Restless after just three years as Dylan McAvoy. The time Burton spent at Y&R is merely a fraction of his 21 year performance on General Hospital as Jason Quartermaine/Morgan. Fans new and loved him as a resident of Port Charles for over 2 decades.

Last Fall, General Hospital news reports confirmed that GH newcomer, (Steve’s recast as Jason Morgan), Billy Miller had signed on a new contract with GH. However it has been reported that contract was a ONE YEAR contract, which would mean talk of contract negotiations with Miller should take place around this time. However, we are already into October, and Miller is still on screen as Jason Morgan. There has been no confirmation on whether or not Billy Miller has signed on yet again with ABC’s General Hospital. Fans of both Steve Burton and Billy Miller are scrambling to search for answers. The biggest question this news poses to fans is, “Will Steve Burton reprise his role as Jason Morgan?”

General Hospital Blog will keep fans notified of any contract information regarding GH’s current Jason Morgan, Billy Miller. So far, there isn’t a reason to believe he will be leaving the show, but on the other hand, there hasn’t been confirmation of a new contract deal either.

We want to know! Would you welcome Steve Burton back to GH with open arms as Jason Morgan once again?

General Hospital Spoilers: Nelle’s Dark Secret

GENERAL HOSPITAL SCREENGRAB AUGUST 23. 2016

Nelle Hayes (Chloe Lanier) came into Port Charles after responding to an ad posted on the Crimson website, by Nina Reeves. Carly had asked Nina to try and reach out, in hopes of finding the person who is responsible for saving her daughter Josslyn’s life.

Shy, quiet, and almost mousy, Nelle seemed reluctant to be part of the Corinthos clan, even after finding out she is indeed the person who gave Joss a kidney. Nelle kept everyone at arms length, or so it seemed. She repeatedly make it clear that she didn’t want money from Carly and Sonny, or Jax. She didn’t even want to accept Carly’s job offer. All of this behavior just made it more obvious to the audience- that Nelle is up to no good!

General Hospital spoilers indicate that Nelle Hayes as a dark secret and her intentions are less than pure. On today’s episode of General Hospital, she revealed another side we haven’t seen before. Nelle was standing with Carly, Sonny, and Kiki, as they all speculated and worried about Morgan’s whereabouts. After Carly and Sonny left, Nelle told Kiki she saw Morgan an hour prior, at The Floating Rib. It definitely seems like Nelle has an agenda, especially after seeing her mutter under her breath, calling Kiki, “Princess,” and saying it’s harder for Morgan.

What does Nelle want with Carly and her family? How will Nelle behave once everyone knows what has happened to Morgan?

Let us know what you think! Is Nelle hiding something? Does she had an ulterior motive to get close to the Corinthos family?

Scarlett Fernandez Joins GH as Claudette’s Daughter. Is Nathan Really the Father?

charlotteClaudette (Bree Williamson) dropped a bomb on Nathan (Ryan Paevey), Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and Griffin (Matt Cohen), telling them she had a daughter and either Nathan or Griffin were the father. A DNA test revealed that Nathan West is Charlotte’s father, and Maxie broke into tears when discussing the outcome with Griffin.

Claudette isn’t known for her honesty, which leaves room for a tampered DNA test story.

Claudette is on the run from Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart), and wants Nathan to protect “their” child, perhaps telling Nathan he is Charlotte’s father is her only way of getting him to help. GH rumors speculate that Claudette and Dr. Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) are working together in this baby drama.

If not Nathan, who? Claudette did say she was briefly involved with this dangerous man (Valentin). Could Charlotte be the newest Cassadine?

Scarlett Fernandez is set to make her General Hospital debut on October 13th.

GH News: Kirsten Storms and Brandon Barash Split

Storms Barash DivorceGeneral Hospital’s favorite off screen couple has decided to call it quits. Though their characters Maxie Jones and JOhnny Zacchara had a brief romance on screen, the actors found love and become a family with their daughter, Harper Rose.

Kirsten Storms and Brandon Barash told Soap Opera Digest the news fans will find devastating. “We are splitting due to the cliche irreconcilable differences, but we’re splitting amicably,” Barash told SOD. :We have every intention of remaining a family through this and successfully co-parenting our kid and retaining a friendship in the efforts of raising her in a healthy environment.”

Kirsten Storms said, “We went to therapy for a long time, trying to figure out how to communicate better with each other.” Barash added, “But we’ve decided that raising our daughter in two separate homes would be a healthier choice for all of us.”

GH Blog is sad to report the news of Storms and Barash’s recent split. We wish them all the very best.

Is Duke Lavery Alive?

DukediesLast May, just shortly after Anna (Finola Hughes) and Duke danced at The Nurses Ball, little did they know it would be their last. Duke Lavery (Ian Buchanan) was killed by Carlos River (Jeffrey Vincent Parise) by the order of Julian Jerome (William DeVry). In turn, Duke’s death has caused a striking series of events from Anna acting out of character and shooting Carlos to avenge Duke’s death. Which also lead to the current story line involving DA Paul Hornsby (Richard Burgi), and now that Carlos has been revealed to be alive, this opens up an entirely new avenue for Anna in regard to making sure Carlos pays for what he has done.

However, General Hospital rumors have been swirling that Duke Lavery is actually alive. Duke has been a hot topic lately in Port Charles as Anna and DA Hornsby are up to their necks in involvement with Carlos Rivera and everything that’s been going on since Anna discovered he was alive.

Follow us on Instagram!

Since it turns out that Anna didn’t kill Carlos after all, even though she intended to do so because he killed her love, Duke, fans are beginning to think it is also possible that Duke is still alive.

Anna is in a bad place right now. She is stuck in the middle of DA Hornsby’s botched operation, she is withholding information from Jordan and has asked Jordan to give her a few weeks to get things straight, she is missing Robin, Emma, and Patrick, as well as Duke. This just might be a good time to give Anna some unexpected happiness by having Duke stroll back into her life.

What do you think, could Duke actually turn up alive? Is Paul Hornsby behind it all? Let us know your thoughts and comments! Share with your fellow GH fan friends!
