As previously reported, soap stars Cameron Mathison (ex-Ryan Lavery, “All My Children”) and Jack Wagner (ex-Frisco Jones, “General Hospital;” ex-Dominick Marone, “The Bold and the Beautiful”) are set to star in the Hallmark Movie Channel Original movie, “My Gal Sunday,” which premieres tonight at 9:00 PM ET on the cable network.
If you tuned into today’s episode of ABC’s “General Hospital” you saw two huge reveals for the character of Brad Cooper, portrayed by actor Parry Shen. In one, it was revealed that Brad and Lucas Jones (Ryan Carnes) slept together after drowning their sorrows at the Floating Rib bar. In the other, it was revealed that Brad’s real father is Kim Wu from the 1980′s Asian Quarter storyline, which is famously remembered in flashbacks when a young Robin Scorpio (Kimberly McCullough) runs to the awaiting arms of her mother Anna Devanne (Finola Hughes). In fact, the scenes were recently aired when Robin once again reunited with her mother last year. In light of all the action and the drama, Soap Opera Network spoke with Shen about the huge storyline twists and turns that the soap was able to keep secret right up to the conclusion of today’s episode.

After Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis Davis) commented on her Twitter page earlier this week after a fan asked, “When will it be time for Ric to come home???” and the actress responded with, “shooting it this week ull see it next month,” fans have been left wondering if that meant Rick Hearst would be returning to ABC’s “General Hospital.” Today, Soap Opera Digest is reporting that the actor is indeed heading back to Port Charles.
Per the publication’s website, Hearst has begun filming his scenes as noted by Grahn and will first air on Monday, February 24, which just so happens to be the same day the daytime drama series celebrates its 13,000th episode.
As previously reported, former “General Hospital” actress Emily Wilson (ex-Ellie Trout) is set to appear in an upcoming episode of ABC’s “Castle,” entitled “Dressed To Kill.”
While the episode was previously set to air on Monday, January 27, an ABC rep tells Soap Opera Network that the episode has been pushed back and will now air on Monday, February 3 instead.
While he may no longer be portraying the role of Steve Webber on ABC’s “General Hospital” that doesn’t mean fans of the daytime drama series can’t join in the fun with actor Scott Reeves during the upcoming General Hospital Fan Club Weekend taking place from Thursday, July 31 through Monday, August 4 at the Sportmen’s Lodge Hotel and Events Center in Studio City, CA.
Reeves is scheduled to once again host “Nashiville Nights with Scott Reeves and Friends!” during the popular weekend. The event is scheduled for Saturday, August 4 from 9:00 – midnight. The event will include Scott and some of his special guests as they entertain fans with an acoustic show, pictures, autographs, snacks, beverages and more!
More details will follow in the coming weeks/months on how to purchase tickets and who else might be joining the actor on stage!
There’s so much excitement happening over at “General Hospital,” it’s tough to keep up!

But just what will this year have in store for the lovely lady? Read on to find out!
“Days of our Lives” may be losing actress, Alison Sweeney (Sami Brady) later this year, but an equally powerhouse actress may be swooping into Salem: Former “One Life to Live” actress Kassie DePaiva (ex-Blair Cramer)!

The news comes hot on the heels of yesterday’s announcement that “GH” has been renewed through the 2014-2015 season.
In a promo for this week’s “General Hospital” ABC highlights the mob war between the Corinthos family and the Jeromes. “In the mob world, where there’s betrayal, there will be blood!” states the announcer as guns are drawn by Sonny (Maurice Benard), Julian (William deVry), Morgan (Bryan Craig) and even Ava (Maura West).
