  • Is Blackie Parrish (John Stamos) Blacklisted from ‘GH’?

    Earlier today a fan tweeted, "@JohnStamos @carlivatiron @valentinifrank #BringBlackieBack #GH," which attracted the attention of the intended parties, but the responses themselves were the least expected of all. Stamos, who portrayed Blackie Parrish on ABC's "General Hospital" in the 1980's replied to the tweet and said, "Sociopathic! You don't remember phone call in @valentinifrank office?" As confusing as the tweet appeared, it became less confusing when "GH" head writer Ron Carlivati responded to Stamos' tweet with, "Yes, I remember it well. But for some reason you seem determined to rewrite the narrative."

  • UPDATE: Debbi Morgan On Prospect Park Rumors: ‘Nobody Has Told Us Anything’

    When word came to light that Prospect Park was getting ready to announce it had decided to not move forward with either "All My Children" or "One Life to Live," as had been expected (The OnLine Network Announces First Season Finales of ‘AMC’ and ‘OLTL’), fans were gearing up for the worst, but what about the actors?

WOW!" the actress responded by saying, "U can imagine how all the cast is feeling being that we're still in the dark as well..." Morgan's comments are in direct contrast to her comment on Sunday, October 27, where she sounded more upbeat when she said, "Many R asking when AMC is coming back. Wish I could give a definitive date. All I can give U is what we're given. The Show 'Is' coming back!"

  • ‘All My Children’ and ‘One Life to Live’ Done?

    Earlier today TV Guide's Michael Logan tweeted, "Is #ProspectPark 'shelving' @allmychildren too? I'm hearing big announcement planned for this Friday. @TOLN @onelifetolive." The possibility of it happened wouldn't necessarily come as a surprise considering there has been literally no news about the future of either "All My Children" or "One Life to Live" outside of the early September news that due to the ABC/Prospect Park lawsuit over "OLTL" the company would be forging ahead solely with "AMC."
