With the final days of summer upon us, many across the nation are gearing up to head to the beach or have one last BBQ before returning to the office or school to tackle responsibilities of the mind next week, with Labor Day being the official holiday of rest for the working class in America. Unfortunately, for those staying home on Monday, September 1, in order to catch up on their favorite soaps, you'll either be seeing a repeat of "General Hospital" on ABC or no soaps at all on CBS and NBC.
Last week "General Hospital" executive producer Frank Valentini revealed that there will be plenty of villains hanging around the denizens of Port Charles this fall and he wasn't kidding. While a show rep issued a "no comment" when contacted by Soap Opera Network, actress Robin Mattson announced on her Facebook page yesterday that she is returning to the daytime soap as Heather Webber in the near future. "Heather is returning to GH soon!" read Mattson's Facebook posting. Fans last saw Heather in February, when she was carted off to jail.
