General Hospital Breaking News: Tony Geary Says Goodbye to General Hospital

After all the hype and drama from GH’s May Sweeps and the Nurses Ball, huge casting news just broke out. For months, social media news has been going back and forth on the topic of Tony Geary and his status with ABC’s General Hospital.

After learning that Tony’s character, the legendary Luke Spencer has come full circle with the wrap up of the Fluke story line, Geary has decided to permanently quit his role on GH.

Emmy winning Tony Geary told TV Guide’s Michael Logan, “The closer it comes, there is less anxiety and dread at seeing the end of the tunnel and it’s more like nirvana because my life is now wide open.”

General Hospital News: ABC Prohibits Actors From Attending Emmy After Party

It appears that the drama doesn’t only happen on screen in a fictional city we like to call Port Charles. According to the latest from TV Guide’s Michael Logan, there is ongoing drama between ABC and CBS networks.

CBS’ Daytime talk show called The Talk is hosting a Daytime Emmy after party for those Daytime Emmy winners. Should any actors from General Hospital take home an Emmy on April 26th, ABC is not allowing them to attend The Talk‘s post Emmy special.

Apparently there is an ongoing feud between ABC and CBS, and the executives over at ABC do not want General Hospital actors involved in the CBS network show. ABC officals have not commented on this alleged feud, nor have they confirmed that this is indeed a wish of theirs, that the actors must avoid the post-Emmy party hosted by The Talk.

Take a look at TV Guide’s Michael Logan’s tweet referring to the recent allegations.


The TRUTH About Why Steve Burton Left General Hospital

The last few weeks have been crazy with the announcement of Billy Miller (ex Y&R star), coming to General Hospital. It has been rumored for months that Miller would replace Steve Burton as the legendary mob enforcer, Jason Morgan.

In a recent interview with TV Guide’s Michael Logan, Steve Burton wanted to set the record straight and let everything know why he left General Hospital. He said that money was definitely an issue, and when it was time for Burton’s contract to be up, executives over at General Hospital were not willing to negotiate. Burton said to Logan, “What you and I both know – that ‘GH’ didn’t make a deal with me. And that’s the truth. My contract was up and they didn’t want to play ball and make it work. At the time, I didn’t want to throw anyone under the bus over there but of course, as soon as it was announced I was going to “Y&R,” people thought the whole thing was planned by Jill on Day 1, which it was not.” Steve Burton stated that he did not necessarily want to leave his 20 year role of Jason Morgan and that GH had the opportunity to bring him back. That being said, he wants fans to know that going to The Young and the Restless was not a set up between himself and Jill Farren Phelps. Burton did what was best for himself and for his family at that time.

Steve Burton is now happy over at The Young and the Restless although sad that things didn’t work out for him over at General Hospital. It has been said that the door is always open for Burton at GH, but for now he will be staying at Y&R as Dylan.
