— Daytime Confidential confirmed online speculation that General Hospital actress Kelly Thiebaud may be on her way out as Britt as contract negotiations have broken down. Thiebaud joined the ABC sudser in 2012 and was then revealed to be the daughter of villainous duo Cesar Faison (Anders Hove) and Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati). I’m hoping they manage to keep her around as Thiebaud has been a welcome newcomer to the daytime scene and it would make sense to keep Britt around because of her connection to the evil Dr. O – plus the Britt just did get back together with Nikolas (Tyler Christopher).
— Meanwhile, the popular soap blog is also reporting that Brandon Barash will soon be returning to GH as Johnny – leading everyone to speculate who will be joining him in prison… Please, please please let it be Sonny (Maurice Benard)!
— Speaking of which, Michael (Chad Duell) learning the truth about his adoptive father Sonny killing his biological father AJ (Sean Kanan) and how his mother Carly (Laura Wright) help keep this secret at Carly and Franco’s (Roger Howarth) “Hallowedding” was beyond epic. Michael disowning his selfish parents has been THE moment that General Hospital fans have been waiting nearly 16 years for. Could Michael finally drop the Corinthos from his name and take on the Quartermaine surname? Look for Michael to make a surprise announcement to his family on the episode airing on November 18! I was so disappointed when they opted to kill off AJ (again) this past year, but if this Sonny going down – finally – is the payoff, then it might just be worth it.
— Steve Burton told Soaps in Depth that he’s sticking around The Young and the Restless for another year: “I’ve re-signed for a year, and I’m very happy.” Burton, who left General Hospital in October 2012 first inked a deal on Y&R a couple of months later and first appeared as Dylan in early 2013. How do you feel about this news Y&R fans? Have you finally warmed up to Dylan and his place on the canvas as Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) and Paul’s (Doug Davidson) surprise/long-lost son?
