General Hospital News And Spoilers: Laura Wright Weighs In On The Longevity And Legacy Of ‘General Hospital’ Are Soap Days Numbered?

General Hospital news and spoilers have reported the 59 year old daytime drama has filmed it’s 15,000 episode. Previously the tribute episode was set to air on June 17th, it was then pushed back to June 20th, and now, due to news coverage in GH’s time slot, the celebratory episode will air on June 21st.

When General Hospital fans reflect on their favorite soap opera, they can’t help to think of some key players such as Luke (Tony Geary) and Laura Spencer (Genie Francis), Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright), along with Jason Morgan (Steve Burton), Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco), The Quartermaine and Cassadine families, and so many more.

General Hospital news reveals discussions from a recent interview with Daytime Emmy winner and 7 time nominee, Laura Wright as General Hospital’s leading lady, Carly Corinthos.

General Hospital spoilers reveal Cleveland.com has acquired some inside information in Laura Wright’s take on the longevity and legacy of this iconic American soap opera. When asked to explain her take on GH’s impressive longevity, Wright explained, “It’s the fans and their love for the show. We’re really here because of them and their love for the characters, the stories and, gosh, the history.”

As a proud fan myself since the mid 1990’s, I feel honored and appreciated at the credit Laura has bestowed upon the fans.

When it comes to taking the risk, and “going there” regarding bold, realistic, raw, and controversial story lines, Laura feels the risk isn’t a threat [because], “those are stories that should be told. So, I don’t find it risky. I find it current and true to humanity. We’re just telling people’s stories. I don’t know if it’s risky to tell the Alzheimer’s story or the transgender story because we are reflecting people in the world today and I think that’s important.”

Are the days of soap operas numbered?

It’s true that General Hospital is one of only 4 remaining soaps on television, and the only daytime drama left on ABC after the cancellation of All My Children and One Life To Live back in the earlier 2000s. However, Laura has a bright outlook when faced with the question of whether or not she finds the days are numbered for the soap genre. Wright explains, “I think the future of daytime is strong with all the different platforms you can watch the show on. The fans love that they can get us anytime, whether it be on ABC or Hulu.” Thank God for all of that!

Carly Corinthos: Wife, Mother, Strong, Capable, and a true force to be reckoned with, all while loving to her fullest ability!

Laura Wright touches on her feelings for her character Carly, and what it’s like playing this passionate, strong, intense, and loving woman. When named a “force of nature,” Laura agreed. She went on to describe Carly. She said, “First of all, thank you. I agree, she is a force of nature. It’s amazing and exhausting to be Carly depending on the day because I’m also Laura and she has her life. It’s really interesting, the difference between playing in Carly’s world and being in Laura’s world. But it’s super fun and I love doing it. One of our writers explained Carly as the woman that everybody wants to be friends with and I was like, oh my God, I love that. It’s so true.”

General Hospital spoilers and reveal Laura has spilled the tea on what is ahead for Carly this Summer. She admits that many changes are in store for her character, and her developing relationship with Drew Cain (Cameron Mathison) is just the beginning.

Ultimately, Laura tells die hard fans exactly what they want to hear when asked about diving into another 15,000 episodes. She declared, “Hell yeah. Bring it on.”

Here’s to General Hospital’s 15,000 episodes and 15,000+ more!

General Hospital News And Spoilers: Steve Burton Defends Kelly Monaco And Kelly Thiebaud In The War For Jason’s Heart

Earlier this week, General Hospital Blog shared some snippets of Steve Burton’s recent interview with Soap Opera Digest. In that interview, Steve revealed his feelings on Jason and Carly’s (Laura Wright) upcoming nuptials, and how this is something new for both Steve and Laura’s characters. He also revealed his thoughts on Sonny’s (Maurice Benard) big return to Port Charles, along with other pressing GH topics.

General Hospital news reports reveal Burton has also voiced his take on the war for Jason Morgan’s heart. It’s undeniable that die hard Jason and Sam Morgan, (Kelly Monaco) aka JaSam fans, aren’t too happy about, 1) his upcoming marriage to Carly, and more importantly, 2) his feelings for Dr. Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud). As history tells it’s story, fan wars over who Jason Morgan gives his heart to has always been a heated battle. Back in the day, fans were on either side of Jason and Sam (JaSam) and Jason and Liz (Rebecca Herbst), (Liason). General Hospital message boards and forums across the internet would explode with fans arguing over their favorite couple. The arguments would get ruthless, and many times, the Soapnet message boards would be shut down for the day by moderators.

General Hospital spoilers reveal there’s a new battle to be fought. This time between Jason and Sam fans vs. Jason and Britt (Brason) fans.

In his recent interview, Burton disclosed his feelings on the bashing his co-stars, Kelly Monaco and Kelly Thiebaud are currently enduring from GH “fans” who are on either side of the war for Jason’s heart. He said, “I get it. I’ve watched shows before where I’ve been upset, okay?” Burton said in an interview with Soap Opera Digest. “So I understand that people get upset over things, for sure. The thing that I don’t condone or like is that people were attacking both Kellys.” 

He added, “I’m not on social that much anymore, but I saw some bad things being said about Kelly Monaco, and some bad things about Kelly Thiebaud, and that’s when I check out. That’s when I’m like, ‘Okay, I’m not even going to engage or read this stuff.’ It is two real human beings that can be affected by those comments, you know?”

Steve is also empathetic to the situation. He disclosed that he too get emotionally invested in the characters and relationships of the shows he watches. He said, “My wife and I watched something on Netflix and something happened and I went, “This is the stupidest show I’ve ever seen! I’m not watching this! I can’t believe they would do something this dumb!” He revealed, “I was so invested that by that point, I go, “I get why people get upset!”… But then we finished it! You kind of settle down and go, ‘It’s a TV show. Get back to the freakin’ TV and watch the rest of it.”

When it’s all said and done, Steve revealed that the actors do not have “We are just doing our job, doing the best we can to tell the story that’s written, the writers, Chris and Dan, aren’t calling us going, “Hey, what do you think about this?”

PSA to our fans from us at General Hospital Blog: Please do not bash the actors just because things in the storyline aren’t going your way. At the end of the day, IT’S A TV SHOW! It’s not worth hurting those who portray these characters. They are human beings with feelings and actually spend time reading feedback online. If you’re a true fan, be a fan, not a hater.

General Hospital Spoilers: Olivia And Sam Have A Heart To Heart After Dante Spills The Tea

Sam Morgan (Kelly Monaco) ended her relationship with Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) a while ago, but hasn’t yet moved on. Now that he is marrying Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright), Sam has no choice but to move forward from the past.

General Hospital spoilers reveal Sam and Dante Falconeri’s (Dominic Zamprogna) kiss won’t be the last.

In the latest General Hospital previews Sam is having a talk with Dante’s mom, Olivia Falconeri Ashton (Lisa LoCicero), and Sam is surprised that Dante disclosed what happened between them. Sam shouldn’t be surprised since Olivia is an Italian mom who is heavily involved in her son’s life. It’ll be something Sam needs to get used to if there is to be any type of romantic future with Dante.

General Hospital rumors were debunked when GH news reports confirmed that Emme Rylan made a statement regarding her potential return to General Hospital, as Lulu Spencer Falconeri. Emme Rylan confirmed she has that she has not been contacted by anyone at GH regarding her character’s awakening from a coma.

Sam and Dante could have a future together, but die hard JaSam and Lante fans aren’t too happy. Jason is only marrying Carly for the business, but he’s got real feelings for Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud). Either way, he seems to be moving on from Sam. Dante is torn while Lulu remains in a coma, but since there is no word on her condition, Dante needs to move on with his life. Others argue that it’s too soon for Dante to move on.

General Hospital Spoilers: Dante Comes Through For Sam When She Needs It Most

Jason (Steve Burton) and Sam Morgan (Kelly Monaco) have created an iconic love story that has captured the hearts of their fans for two decades. They fell in love and their journey as legendary lovers became a household name. JaSam will forever be treasured in our hearts.

Although Aam was the one to ultimately end their relationship, reality has finally set in after overhearing Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) reveal Jason is about to marry Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright).

General Hospital spoilers reveal Sam is having a difficult time with the shocking news. It’s a tough pill to swallow after knowing all along that Carly has been priority in his life. Although that’s true for the most part, when he was with Sam, at the end of the day, he did put Sam first when it mattered most.

General Hospital rumors suggest Sam won’t have to suffer alone, and she will have the shoulder of a new friendship to lean on.

General Hospital previews show Sam being confronted by Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna) about her burning ceremony with Elizabeth Webber (Rebecca Herbst). After bringing attention to the Port Charles fire department and PCPD, Dante shows up and comes through for Sam at the right time.

GH spoilers reveal Dante asks Sam if she trusts him, making it clear that he cares about her and what she’s going through. This could be the beginning of something good for Sam, and the start of a new relationship. Even though Dante loves Lulu (Emme Rylan), the two were estranged at the time of the unfortunate situation that left Lulu in a coma.

Jason has definitely started to move on, even if it’s not really with Carly. He has real feelings for Dr. Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud) that he cannot act on now that he has run into this dire situation with The Five Families, and having to marry Carly.

Sam is letting go of Jason and it seems like Dante will be there to pick up the pieces.

General Hospital Spoilers: Sam Gets A Taste Of Feeling Like An Outsider

Sam Morgan (Kelly Monaco) was always down for the ride with her true love, Jason Morgan (Steve Burton). Come Hell or high water, Jason and Sam were each other’s ride or die. Knowing exactly what Jason’s line of work was all about, Sam not only accepted the lifestyle, but was a willing participant.

As time went on, JaSam continued to go on strong, even when external forces would tear them apart. Jason and Sam always fought their way back to each other, and they fought hard. Even after everything they’ve been through, one day Sam came to a realization that this life is no life for raising kids. And just like that (so it seems), she broke things off for the sake of the children.

General Hospital spoilers reveal Sam is about to get a taste of what it’s like from the outside looking in, as she goes through each and every connection possible to help her to Jason. Sam is so used to being entangled in Jason’s life that now that she isn’t his number one priority, she’s having a difficult time coming to terms with the fact that there will be information for which she isn’t privy when it comes to Jason’s business.

General Hospital previews show Sam confronting Carly Corinthos (Maurice Benard) about the lack of information Carly is disclosing to her. Carly has to watch herself even more now that she has stepped up and took Sonny’s (Maurice Benard) place as part of the Five Families. Carly knows she’s already in over her head and she has to stay afloat. Involving anyone else at this point would just add to the risk. It’s obvious that Sam ari loves Jason, and she is still a priority to him. But for now, he’s on the run with Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud), and Carly is running the show. To say there’s no room for Sam might sound a bit harsh, but at this time, it’s true.

Sam is definitely starting to feel like an outsider now that she reaps what she has sown. Britt and Carly are taking priority in Jason’s life and there’s nothing Sam can do about it at this time.

Sam Morgan (Kelly Monaco) and Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna) have been spending time together as friends, leaning on each other as they deal with life’s curve balls.

Dante and Sam have been getting closer, to the point where GH rumors began surrounding a blossoming romance. Sam ended things with Jason Morgan (Steve Burton), and it looks like he’s moving on with Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud).

General Hospital spoilers reveal Sam is taken back by Dante’s change of heart. Or at least that’s how it seems.

General Hospital previews show Sam’s look of shock when she hears Dante telling her that he needs to bring her in for questioning. Now that Dante is working with the PCPD, and entertaining the thought of becoming a Police Officer again, Sam needs to watch what she says so that she doesn’t incriminate Jason.

Regardless of their relationship status, Sam would never compromise Jason’s work and freedom.

How will Sam handle Dante’s interrogation?

General Hospital Spoilers: Britt Makes It Clear She Has Jason’s Back

Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) and Dr. Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud) have formed an unexpected friendship and mutual bond over two common threats, Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober), and Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

Jason and Britt have been helping each other out but mutual trust didn’t come easy. At first, Britt didn’t know if she could believe Jason about Cyrus using General Hospital as a way to illegally facilitate drugs through Port Charles. She quickly learned the truth and who to trust. Britt and Jason have been also working together to try and take down her own brother, Peter August.

General Hospital spoilers reveal Britt reaches out to Jason while he is locked up for being framed by Peter. Peter has made it look as if Jason killed Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth). And for some reason, everyone knows the truth except for the PCPD and anyone who could actually set Jason free and arrest the correct man. It seems as though the PCPD is always last to crack a case 😂.

General Hospital previews show Britt visiting Kason at his cell In Pentonville, telling him it’s her job to take care of him.

General Hospital rumors indicate that Britt and Jason’s friendship is developing into something more. Now that they trust one another, the natural course of falling for each other will dictate the road ahead for these two. Is Jason ready to move on from Sam (Kelly Monaco)?

General Hospital Spoilers: Sam Has A Proposition To Return A Favor, Will She And Dante Be Working Closely?

Sam Morgan (Kelly Monaco) has been dealing with a lot lately while Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn) continues to drink, and drama surrounding her ex, Jason Morgan (Steve Burton), continues to haunt her.

General Hospital spoilers reveal Sam gets closer to someone while she and Jason are broken up. It’s natural for couples to move on from one another once they’ve split, and GH rumors claim Sam will move on, even if it’s short lived, with Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna).

General Hospital previews show Sam approaching someone, telling them she’d like to return a favor. Recently, Dante risked his own life when Sam’s mother, Alexis, charged at Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth) with a syringe.

General Hospital rumors hint that Sam is talking to Dante aboit trying to make it up for him when he stopped in and stopped her mother from killing Franco, and instead put his own life at risk.

Will Sam offer Dante a position at Aurora? He’s got the skills and credentials, and he’s no longer an officer with the PCPD. GH rumors hint Sam and Dante may get closer after working together at Aurora, ultimately developing feelings.

How do the die hard JaSam fans feel about Sam moving on with Dante?

General Hospital Spoilers: Sam Stays Connected To Sonny Through Her New Romance, Dante And Sam Have An Unexpected Connection

Sam Morgan (Kelly Monaco) is one of the many people of Port Charles who are mourning the loss of Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard). Sam and Sonny have a long history, which actually includes a short romantic connection. Sam and Sonny actually conceived a child that unfortunately passed away at birth. At that moment is when Sam and Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) knew they found their soul mate within each other.

Life circumstances lead Sam and Jason to fall deeply in love, creating one of the greatest love stories in soap opera history. Their road has been rocky, but filled with unconditional love in between all the drama, danger, and heartache. Recently, Sam cut things off with Jason for the safety of their children, due to the nature of his job with Sonny Corinthos.

General Hospital spoilers reveal Sam is about to move on to find happiness with another man who is close to Sonny. GH rumors indicate Sam will make an unexpected connection with Sonny’s son, Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna). Although Dante is close to Sonny, as he is his son, it’s different than the relationship Sonny had with his right hand man, and Sam’s ex, Jason. Dante is still hoping and praying for a miracle, that Lulu Spencer Falconeri (Emme Rylan) will awaken from her coma. GH rumors claim Dante’s feelings for Sam grow even though he still has love for Lulu.

Sam broke up with Jason because his connection and work with Sonny could potentially out her family in danger. Although Dante is also close with Sonny, he is a former police officer at the PCPD, and works for the USB. Dante is basically on the opposite end of the law than his father, and perhaps Sam finds comfort in that.

General Hospital News: Is ABC Dealing With Another Stana Katic/Nathan Fillion Situation? Kelly Monaco Addresses Rumors Regarding Her Relationship With Steve Burton

As we all know in life, not everyone always gets along and sometimes no matter how hard you try, it can be difficult to make it through an encounter with someone in which you don’t get along. But in a professional setting, differences need to be put aside for the sake of the job that needs to be done.

In recent years, ABC Network experienced difficulty toward the end of one of its most popular prime time dramas, Castle. It was a known fact that the two main characters, Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic, who played Richard Castle and Detective Kate Beckett on 8 seasons, couldn’t stand one another. It was rumored show ended due to the fact that Fillion and Katic straight up didn’t get along. Some rumors even claim the long time co-stars who were madly in love as characters, actually despised one another in real life. That being said, GH rumors have been flying, surrounding the relationship between General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam Morgan) and Steve Burton (Jason Morgan).

General Hospital rumors claim Monaco and Burton had a falling out during the time Billy Miller joined the cast of GH. Miller took on the role of the legendary Jason Morgan, but turned out to really be a man named Drew Cain.

General Hospital spoilers reveal it was no secret that Kelly and Billy became very close, some GH fans even speculated they had a romantic relationship. Ever since Billy’s exit from General Hospital, alongside Steve Burton’s role to reclaim the character, Jason Morgan, GH fans have started a rumor, claiming that Kelly Monaco and Steve Burton can’t stand each other, much like the situation between Stana Katic and Nathan Fillion.

The iconic love story of Jason and Sam, also know as JaSam, has had a long history of ups and downs, but they have always gotten through the hard times and found their way back to each other. Currently, JaSam are separated as a result of Sam’s unsettling feelings surrounding the nature of Jason’s work and concern for her children.

General Hospital news reports, GH star, Kelly Monaco, who plays alongside Steve Burton in one of the greatest television love stories in soap opera history, has taken to Twitter to address the rumors regarding her relationship with Steve. You can see below that Kelly calls this nonsense out as being “speculation” and “bullshit.” Kelly sets the record straight for GH fans and wants people to know that these GH rumors are simply not true.

The moral of the story here is, it’s no ones business what happens between the co-stars in their personal lives, and it surely isn’t right to make assumptions about a situation too know absolutely nothing about. Kelly’s description of this situation is perfect; calling it “speculation,” because that’s all it is. Let’s stick to enjoying our favorite show without making it the fan’s place to claim why a TV couple is breaking up. The writers over at General Hospital have made the decision to break up Jason and Sam for now, and only time will tell of this love story will be able to see things through.
