Spoilers/News: Month of February and March Pt. 2

We now know that Kristen Alderson was offered, and accepted, a three year contract with GH - even though we all know that the standard is 13 weeks. It has also being said that Michael Easton was offered the same contract. No word yet on whether it was accepted. He is currently rumoured to be staying a minimum of 6 months.

Regarding Lulu, please do not fret! Addiction and metal illness are not the only family legacy that she will be reminded of. When ancient ties and feuds are resurrected, Lulu will also remeber that crime-fighting, ass-kicking and saving the world are also part of it.

Spoilers/News: Month of Febraury and March

Now that RC and FV have officially taken over the reigns, many are wondering what will happen, and mainly they are questioning the future of general hospital. Anyone who tells you that RC and FV are not trying to save GH are receiving the wrong information. They really want the last remaining soap to remain on ABC. It is being speculated that the past may bump into the future a la Dallas.

Maurice is very excited about where they are taking his character and he even tweeted that "Frank Valentini is the Jim Harbaugh (the head coach for the San Francisco 49ers ) of daytime. He is kicking ass"

Many are understandably a bit skittish about the arrival of the OLTLers, but RC promises that after their departure, your favourite soap will go in a direction you won't see coming. A fire will break out at the hospital

Spoilers: Long-Term Spoilers for the Month of Jan/Feb

I told you months ago that you had not seen the last of Alcazar. Who he's connected to may shock many fans out there.

Kristen Storms returns as Maxie and another return will leave tongues wagging. This person is still alive and ready to take their revenge. Look for a reunion that will split two fan bases down the middle (one of the actors involved is not thrilled with this one even remotely).

One major long time actress may be shown the door for storyline reasons. Wrapping things up is not an easy job. Cutting down on a great deal to keep the core only (with guests coming left and right).

News: SOAPnet's Demise

It is official. According to TV Guide Magazine, SOAPnet will leave cable and satellite systems on March 23 and will be replaced by Disney Junior March 23. As previously reported last year, Mickey Mouse made the decision to axe the soap channel in favor of a 24/7 preschool channel. According to Disney Channels Worldwide president and CEO Gary Marsh:
This marks the beginning of a sea change in the 'preschool plus' television landscape. The response to our Disney Junior programming block has been extremely positive.
I guess they haven't talked to soap fans. This news comes during the same week One Life to Live finally takes a bow after being on air for 43 years.


News: Tristan Rogers Returns

Grab your decoder rings, because Scorpio is back! TVLine's suds-loving scoopster Matt Mitovich just broke the news that Tristan Rogers will return to the General Hospital airwaves, as superspy Robert Scorpio in February.

With Kimberly McCullough, who plays Robert's daughter Robin, leaving the series, and Finola Hughes on her way back as mama Anna Devane, it's pretty safe to say Robert and Anna are coming back to help usher their kid off the canvas, however buzz is Robin's 'rents could be sticking around!

Video: Jasam Breathe

 I created this video for two reasons: First to show how in one moment lives can be changed for ever, and second to prove once again how much of an amazing couple Sam and Jason are. On their honeymoon they endured one of the worst possible tragedy that could happend to a couple; for a while they were shattered. They fought, bickered, and almost lost one another. But through it all they came out stronger because they believed in their love for one another. And this is what I want to you get out of this video. I really hope you enjoy it.
