General Hospital
ALL THINGS RELATED

"Tainted Dreams," the new web series from the creative mind of “All My Children” supervising producer Sonia Blangiardo, which looks to provide a rare, realistic view behind the scenes of producing a daily scripted drama (show within a show - "Painted Dreams"), has added Bobbie Eakes ("All My Children," "The Bold and the Beautiful") to its cast. Eakes joins the recently signed Ilene Kristen ("One Life to Live," "Ryan's Hope"), James DePaiva ( "OLTL") and Tonja Walker ("OLTL") to round out an all star cast of soap stars.
It's been an eventful "General Hospital" Fan Club Weekend thus far and so far we've learned that Laura Wright (Carly Jacks) has renewed her contract with the ABC Daytime soap as the actress tells Soap Opera Network, "I just recently signed a four year contract." The actress joined the "GH" cast in November 2005.
Earlier this year, ABC's "General Hospital" released "Love In Maine," which was a corporate tie-in with Disney/ABC Television Group’s Hyperpion Books and the debut novel by the fictional "GH" character Molly Lansing-Davis (Haley Pullos). Unfortunately, upon release Connie Falconeri had all the credit until TJ (Tequan Richmond), Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) and Shawn (Sean Blakemore) helped Molly set the record straight on the soap. Five months since the release of "Maine," Hyperion Books has announced it plans to release the sequel to the novel as an eBook.
Shortly after it was announced that Kelly Sullivan would be departing ABC's "General Hospital," as a result of the soap opting to write her characters (Kate Howard/Connie Falconeri) off the canvas, the actress stated on her Facebook page, "I am not returning to 'GH' after August. This is not a contract issue, I have been written off the show.” It was unclear at the time whether August meant airdate or tape date. Things have since become clear as the actress has revealed on her Twitter page that she will be taping her last episode of the daytime drama series today, which means her last airdate will be sometime in August.
With filming scheduled to begin in and around New York City on Monday, July 29, "Tainted Dreams," the new web series from the creative mind of "All My Children" supervising producer Sonia Blangiardo and provides a rare, realistic view behind the scenes of producing a daily scripted drama, has added three more daytime stars to its cast and they are all formerly of "One Life to Live."
Anyone who follows “General Hospital’s” Jack Wagner (Frisco Jones, ex-Dominick Marone, “The Bold and the Beautiful”) on Twitter knows that he’s used the social media site to air a lot of personal thoughts over the past few weeks following the death of his dog, Stanley. The actor has opened up about loss and addiction, among other things. But this week, he’s taken his admissions to a whole new level by bashing ‘GH’ and the way the executives and writers handled the sudser’s 50th anniversary!
