Ramirez Protects And Serves

MarisaRamirez.jpg

As GENERAL HOSPITAL's young Gia, Marisa Ramirez had a way of finding trouble. Now the current cast member of CBS' cop drama, BLUE BLOODS, is working to help others get out of trouble in the city where the show is produced.

"Trying to provide affordable and safe housing in New York City is not easy," she says. "So there are about 25 teams of 10 women each raising $250,000 to $500,00 to build homes for local single mothers [via a Women Build project for Habitat for Humanity]." Amongst those teams is a seven-member one from BLUE BLOODS, The Bricks & Sticks Chicks, which the actress is a part of.

"We have a make-up artist, someone from the wardrobe department, our script supervisor, and also myself and fellow castmembers Amy Carlson (Josie, ANOTHER WORLD), Vanessa Ray (Teri, AS THE WORLD TURNS) and Abigail Hawk," Ramirez says proudly. "I've gotta get some steel-toed shoes! We have no idea what we'll actually be doing, but we are excited and looking forward to it." With just weeks left until the Saturday, September 26, build day, the actress is fundraising for the BLUE BLOODS team. Click here to pledge your support.

For more from Ramirez, whose TV series returns Friday, September 25, at 10:00 p.m. EST, keep an eye out for her Keeping Track feature in an upcoming issue of Soaps In Depth.

I honestly couldn't be happier to be working with such wonderfully gifted people, all of whom who have been so warm and welcoming. I'm equally thrilled to be playing a character I've already loved playing these past weeks, with scripts that have been so wonderful, I'm excited each time I open a new one to find out what the writers have in store for me next, and alongside actors I have so much respect for. What a true, absolute pleasure it's all been!

"Thank you so much, all of you, for your tireless support of me and my work throughout all these years together," he continued. "I'm truly, truly touched by the overwhelming expressions of kind thoughts and well wishes by so many of you throughout all the social media outlets. As it has been throughout so many times in my life working on shows such as this, because of you all, my cup truly runneth over... Can't wait to see you all in Salem!"

GH Friday Recap: A Heart-Wrenching Corinthos Moment!

SonnyCarlyMorgan.jpg

Ava was already down in the dumps when Morgan visited her in the PCPD jail. He didn't come bearing words of support, though. Nope. He told her it was over between them! She was, understandably, hurt but wasn't convinced he was following his heart. "Say it!" she demanded. "Say that never hearing my voice, never feeling my touch, turning your back on me forever is what you want!" He didn't say those words exactly but he meant them when he said he wanted a fresh life with Kiki. Ava's heart broke as she told him that she wanted them both to be happy, so she promised that her daughter would never know what happened about their fling. After Morgan left, Ava collapsed in tears on her bed. Julian showed up and broke the news to her that he couldn't get the flash drive with her recorded confession that she killed Connie. Hopeless and emotionally exhausted, Ava accepted her presumed fate.

Morgan's roller coaster ride of emotions looked far too familiar to Sonny and Carly. Their son was in crisis mode and on the brink of crashing. He was in need of help, not just from them, but also from a doctor. Sonny was concerned how Morgan was going to react to what they had to say but agreed that he needed talking to. They were going to call Morgan, but he unexpectedly stormed in, hyper, happy and hopeful now that he officially broke up with Ava. "I finally feel free!" he cheered. Morgan's manic state had his parents very worried.

Carly carefully suggested he see a doctor because of everything he'd been through lately. "You think I'm crazy?" he asked. Sonny answered, "Bi-polar." Morgan fought their every word, insisting that now that Ava was out of his life, he didn't need a doctor; he only needed Kiki. Sonny laid out the hard and painful truth as a man who had been through every emotional swing Morgan was going through. Still, Morgan wouldn't hear it. "Everything is fine. I'm good," he smiled and left in a hurry.

Meanwhile, Franco gently told Kiki what Silas was going to tell her the day he was murdered. As Franco put it, "Morgan and Denise/Ava, they were doin' the deed behind your back." Kiki refused to believe it, that is, until Franco said that Ava admitted it to him. Kiki blamed Franco for not telling her, and then she had a light bulb moment: "Morgan slept with my mother and killed my father to cover it up." She stormed out and went back to Silas' apartment for the first time. There was a cheerful knock on the door. It was Morgan... and Kiki was not happy to see him!

Arraignment or not, Nina was still on a high after exchanging "I love you's" with Franco. Alexis told her that all she had to do was say two words to the judge: not guilty. Nina did do as Alexis asked, but then added enthusiastically, "Franco's not guilty either!" Alexis, the judge and even Madeline tried to get her to shut up and sit down. But Nina insisted, "You're prosecuting the wrong man!" And Ric entered as if on cue!

Nina's bail was denied and her case not dismissed. After she was taken to lockup, Ric told Madeline that he was arrested and that he had the document she wanted so desperately. But he had one question. He wanted her to explain, how did she get Silas' signature on it? Gotcha, Madeline!

Monday on GH, Kiki has a few choice words for Morgan, Maxie considers Dillon's interesting career offer, and Madeline's got some explaining to do! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

Geary's Dark Tale

GearyExit.jpg

Before leaving GENERAL HOSPITAL and Los Angeles for Amsterdam, Anthony Geary (ex-Luke) starred in a short film called The Obituary. The film tells the story of a struggling writer who pens obituaries for the local paper to make ends meet. But when he arrives at a man's home to collect information on a recent passing, he finds himself in a life or death situation of his own!

The Obituary has already been filmed, but the producers are trying to gather the money to distribute the film so that audiences can see it and perhaps even develop the short into a full-length feature film. You can visit the project's Indiegogo page by clicking here to watch Geary and the rest of the cast and crew talk about the film as well as see a short clip from it.

And then if you'd like to take part in a little moviemaking, you can donate to assist with distribution. Some donation levels come with rewards that range from Geary-autographed photos, posters and DVDs to producer credit or even lunch with the actors and director!
