According to The Hollywood Reporter, actress Bobbi Jordan, who had appeared for three years in the mid-1970s on “General Hospital” in the role of Terri Webber Arnett, has died. The actress died at her home in Encinitas, California on November 9 of an apparent heart attack. She was 75 years old.

In her role on “GH,” Jordan is probably best remembered for when her character crashed her car “after the wife of the man she was dating — just released from a sanitarium — tampered with her brakes. (Of course, he would operate on her to save her life.)”

A memorial service is set for 3 p.m. Dec. 9 at the Self-Realization Fellowship Temple, 939 Second St., Encinitas, CA 92024.

Lisa’s Take on GH: Monday, November 26, 2012

Port Charles said goodbye to Edward Quartermaine today. After the church service, the Quartermaine’s went to the mausoleum to lay him to rest. AJ, who wasn’t allowed to go to church because he is on house arrest, said a few touching words and promised that he would make Edward proud and then abruptly went back to the house.

At the mansion, Diane Miller, who Edward had draw up his will, read it to the family. Of course, there were interruptions by Tracy, bickering, but Alice got 5% of his shares in ELQ, Monica also received 5%. He left 50% cash to Habitat for Humanity and 50% to Public Broadcast Television. Edward also left shares of ELQ to all his grand children and great grandchildren. No one seemed to be left out, except Tracy. However, After the others went to have lunch, Diane gave her a box that Edwaed insisted she gave to her. It had a jar of pickle relish with her mother Lila’s picture on it. Tracy looked in disbelief. Is this a joke? Or is there a hidden meaning that Edward is trying to tell her. It should be interesting to find out.

At the Church, Sam, Danny, and Spinelli sat behind and talked about his situation with Maxie and Jason. Spinelli gave his opinion that Maybe Jason is not coming back after all. Sam lit a candle and promised Danny she was not ready to give up on Jason.

Deadline is reporting that former “Days of our Lives” star Matt Cedeno (ex-Brandon Walker) has landed a recurring role on Lifetime’s “Devious Maids,” which stars Susan Lucci (“All My Children”), Ana Ortiz (“Ugly Betty”), Roselyn Sanchez (“Without a Trace”), Grant Show (“Melrose Place”) and Brianna Brown (“General Hospital”). Cedeno is said to be featured in the tweaked pilot, which was originally conceived as a possible series for ABC during last seasons development cycle, and will likely be upped to series regular if the show is picked up by Lifetime for a second season. Cedeno will play the role of Alejandro Reyes, “a successful recording artist. Back home after three long months on tour, Alejandro wants to lounge by the pool – while behind his back, Odessa and the new maid Carmen are maneuvering themselves for Total War.”

In Hallmark Channel’s new film “Help for the Holidays,” actress Summer Glau (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”) stars as Christine, one of Santa’s elves who is assigned the task of helping a little boy in Los Angeles as his family is in dire need of a wake up call. Eva La Rue (“All My Children”) and Dan Gauthier (“One Life to Live”) portray Sara and Scott VanCamp, the boy’s mother and father, whose Christmas gift shop, Holly Daze, is booming. As a result, Will (Mason Cook, “Spy Kids: All the Time in the World”) and his sister Ally (Izabela Vidovic, “Christmas Angel”) are often left unsupervised, with the exception of when Sara’s brother Dave (John Brotherton, “One Life to Live”) is available.

Enter Santa’s little helper, who interviews to be the kids’ new full-time nanny, while secretly hoping to bring happiness and joy back into the holiday.

“Television has seen many stars, but there will only be one Larry Hagman. Larry was a larger-than-life personality, both on-screen and off — a master showman and brilliant actor who brought to life a character that transcended the medium and truly captivated a nation.  Today, we mourn the loss of a friend, but remember a man who brought true greatness to his craft and a television character in J.R. Ewing that will never be forgotten.”
