Oh, hell no! The General Hospital relish wars will escalate next month when Tracy Quartermaine — the witch-on-wheels played by Jane Elliot — learns that her nephew and arch-rival, A.J. Quartermaine (Sean Kanan), has been booked on The Chew to show off his Pickle-Lila recipe.

Only in Salem, kids, only in Salem. Days of Our Lives heartthrobs Eric Martsolf (Brady) and Galen Gering (Rafe) claim they had no problem shooting the soap's Magic Mike spoof airing April 23. But let's get real here. When you launch your career on Passions — as both actors did — you probably don't have much dignity left!
Anticipation is running high for Prospect Park's reboots of All My Children and One Life to Live — premiering April 29 via Hulu and iTunes — but nobody's more excited than the creator of both soaps, the legendary 85-year-old Agnes Nixon....
When One Life to Live returns, it'll come with a new feel to say the least.

Table for three? Right this way! ABC has announced that ousted General Hospital stars Michael Easton, Roger Howarth and Kristen Alderson, who left the soap several weeks ago due that contract mess with Prospect Park, will all return on May 10. No plot deets are available yet, but it does have us wondering who will remain on this gloriously over-stuffed show, especially now that the 50th anniversary craziness has peaked, and the Nurses Ball is a camptastic memory. What's to become of Laura and Scotty and Bobbie and Lucy? Is looney-tunes Brenda on her way out? Is Frisco too pissed to come back? And will Blackie Parrish ever get out of the slammer and return to Port Chuck? TV Guide Magazine got the 411 from head writer Ron Carlivati.
Daddy's back! In the stunning cliffhanger of Wednesday's episode of ABC's General Hospital it was revealed that Stavros Cassadine — the heartthrob baddie played by Robert Kelker Kelly — didn't die when he went down that bottomless pit back in 2001. In fact, he's still looking mighty damn fine and holding Luke, Laura and Lulu hostage on Cassadine Island! Are even more Cassadines coming? Is Helena really most sincerely dead? Head writer Ron Carlivati gave TV Guide Magazine the scoop on this unstoppable crime clan.<
Look who's unleashed her inner Scorsese! Emmy-winning General Hospital star Finola Hughes (Anna) is making her feature-film directing debut with The Bet, a multi-generational tale about the sweet, sad, landmine-filled quest for romance (TheBetMovie.com). The movie will have its premiere April 4 at a starry benefit screening — hosted by Kenny Loggins and The Young and the Restless ' Michele Stafford (Phyllis) — at the Bacara Resort in Santa Barbara, a city that played a crucial role in the making of film. The Bet, featuring an entire cast and crew of first-timers, is produced by the new Community Film Studio Santa Barbara (CFSSB), the world's first and only non-profit, all-volunteer, community movie studio. TV Guide Magazine spoke with the London-born Hughes about this thrilling — and incredibly ballsy — venture.
General Hospital celebrated a milestone Wednesday, marking 50 years on the air.
To commemorate the golden anniversary, the soap released a new official portrait.
Kin Shriner, Jane Elliot and Anthony Geary
Drinking! Deceit! Debauchery! And some of it even happened on screen. General Hospital was one wild and crazy place in the late '70s and early '80s under the command of the brilliant yet oh-so-lethal exec producer Gloria Monty. In honor of the ABC soap's 50th anniversary, TV Guide Magazine gathered three survivors of the era — good friends Tony Geary (Luke), Jane Elliot (Tracy) and Kin Shriner (Scotty) — for a raucous lunch near the GH studio. Shriner shows up at the restaurant in a bright cherry-red shirt, the exact same color as Geary's pants. "How weird is that?" says Shriner. "If we put your pants with my shirt it would look kind of clownish." Says Geary with a laugh: "I hate to tell ya, but we're both halfway there now." Elliot, for reasons to be revealed later, is wearing a large smock. Geary orders pasta. Shriner and Elliot get the fish tacos, with Elliot noting, "Kin, who has way too much time on his hands, called me yesterday to discuss in detail the fish tacos he was going to have here today." Soon enough the memories are flying. Who quit the show in a tiff over $50? Who got arrested on the way to work? Who had a steady stream of sexmates coming in and out of the dressing room? It's all here and lots more, so get ready for the full Monty!
