    For more than 12 years Sean Kanan has been portraying the role of the flawed Deacon Sharpe on CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" and "The Young and the Restless," but for fans of "General Hospital" he is best known for his portrayal of AJ Quartermaine. Last seen in 1997 as AJ went toe-to-toe with Carly Roberts (now Carly Jacks) as played by Sarah Brown, fans were shocked to find the role recast with actor Billy Warlock. According to published reports, Kanan had been fired by then executive producer Wendy Riche because of issues relating to alcohol use.

    On Saturday, July 23, 2011, "General Hospital" held its annual fan club weekend event at the Sportmen's Lodge Event Center. Incidentally, in the year that followed many were left wondering if the 2012 event would ever come to be amidst all the drama and rumors surrounding the cancellation, reincarnation (through the Disney/ABC Television Group/Prospect Park Productions deal that wasn't) and ultimate demise of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" and the possible effect it would have on "GH" itself.

    On Monday, May 23, three days after news broke that Ingo Rademacher (Jasper 'Jax' Jacks) had been fired by ABC's "General Hospital," Soap Opera Network tweeted that we had exclusively learned that Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo (Brenda Barrett Corinthos) would be the next actor leaving the daytime drama series. On Thursday, May 26, just before the long Memorial Day Weekend, the actress confirmed our report when she revealed that her days with the soap were numbered via her Twitter page. Interestingly, the actress has been tweeting up a storm since revealing the news while keeping mum for nearly 3 months on her twitter account (it had previously been crickets since February of this year). Marcil Giovinazzo's confirmation follows months of rumors since she revealed in an interview with Access Hollywood Live back in March that she was on her way out.
