Zamprogna's A Pop (Again)!

DominicLeslie.jpg

Congratulations are in order for GENERAL HOSPITAL's Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) and wife Linda Leslie, who welcomed their second child! Daughter Eliana entered the world on December 30 at 7:56 pm and weighing seven pounds, 14 ounces. "Mom was a champ," Zamprogna told Soaps In Depth exclusively.

The couple already has one daughter, two-year-old Anbilliene, and the whole happy family was back home the very next day on New Year's Eve. "We're home now," he reported. "In record time, maybe! The four of us spent the night in the hospital together. The only ones to sleep were Anbilliene and Eliana."

And while Zamprogna declares that "everyone's happy and healthy, thankfully," he also adds: "Li'l sis and big sis are competing for attention!"

GH's New Year's Resolutions!

SullivanBenard.jpg

There's always room for personal improvement, even if you're just a fictitious character in a made up town. We asked a few of your favorite GENERAL HOSPITAL stars what goals their characters should stick to in 2013, and here's what they revealed...

What should your character's New Year's resolution be?

Maurice Benard (Sonny, GH):

"He wants to work on his rage. He's starting to realize that the rage is not power anymore."

Julie Marie Berman (Lulu, GH):

"Make some important decisions before she's even faced with the question, like, what to name the unborn children they have the moment after they have sex. 'Cause it's not desperate at all. And it doubles as a HUGE turn-on. Wait... she already does that?"

Carolyn Hennesy (Diane, GH):

"Find Max and make it right. That was an atrocious way to part."

Robin Mattson (Heather, GH):

"To find a clean escape and a mighty good alibi."

Lindsey Morgan (Kristina, GH):

"Do a background check on everyone she knows."

Kelly Sullivan (Connie/Kate, GH):

"Connie is, "2013 is going to be AWESOME!" She's looking at 2013 as, "I'm going to be a new Pulitzer Prize winning author on New York's Best Seller List!" She wants to hit the ground running and kick ass!"

What is your personal New Year's resolution?

Julie Marie Berman (Lulu, GH):

"To release my debut album, 'SWAG Don't Pay The Bills, So...'"

Carolyn Hennesy (Diane, GH):

"Another year, no Botox. Keep it up, kiddo!"

Lindsey Morgan (Kristina, GH):

"I always make, like, 12 resolutions. This year, I need to be on time more. I'm one of those people that you say to be somewhere at 12, I'll be there at 12:01. Maybe, to be early instead so I won't stress out."

Kelly Sullivan (Connie/Kate, GH):

"Just to stop and breath. Breathing is good. And to take a look around and be present. Be a good friend and be a good person. Not take myself too seriously."

What's Connie Up To Now?

ConnieJohnny.jpg

You can bet Connie will find coal in her stocking Christmas morning!

Who needs a chubby man in a red suit who chuckles, "Ho! Ho! Ho!" when you've got a hot blonde in animal print who cracks herself up describing why her husband had no choice but to marry her? "The Kama Sutra. The CONNIE Sutra. Ha! I just thought of that!" she laughed, evoking a prickly look from Carly. Connie Falconeri truly is the Christmas gift that keeps on giving. That is unless you're that husband she speaks of. He was the guy lying unconscious under the coffee table after wifey-poo smashed a bottle over his head. That sinister look she had in her eyes while picking up a sharp pair of scissors, then turning to his body on the floor foretells something unpleasant when the show picks up again after Christmas!

At least Lucy Coe was in the holiday spirit. She made Sabrina, Patrick and Felix light up like the Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center when she announced that the Nurses Ball was a go. Something tells us, however, that there's a naughty little scheme cooking in that perfectly coiffed head of hers. And if it has her mixing it up with the Qs in their mansion, that much better! If there's anyone that can raise the "Quartermania" decibel level and kick it up a notch on the crazy scale, it's Lucy Coe!

Before we learn Johnny's fate in Connie's hands or what, exactly, Lucy has up her sleeve on Wednesday, December 26, don't forget that the episode that airs on Christmas Eve will be an encore presentations of the show that aired on Thanksgiving Day, which found the Quartermaines honoring their patriarch, and there is a full network pre-emption on the 25th.

Happy holidays to all... and to all, a good night!

GH Stars' Holiday Wish List!

XmasMo.jpg

Santa Claus is coming to town and GENERAL HOSPITAL is on his stop! If he knows the folks of Port Charles like we do (and we're betting that he does), that Naughty List of his must be getting pretty long! Should he decide to refrain from filling stockings with coal, we'll give him a hand at choosing the right gifts for the right people...

Maurice Benard (Sonny, GH)

  • What should your character get for Christmas?: Sonny would just love to have dinner with the people that he loves. The woman he loves, his sons, his daughter. That's all. That would be enough for him. If you could see Christmas through his eyes at that moment, you would see joy.
  • What do you want for Christmas?: I get up in the morning and just thank God for everything that I have. Other than the health and the well being of my family, there's nothing else I can think of that I want.

    Scott Reeves Checks Out Of GH

    Reeves.jpg

    Last night, Scott Reeves used Twitter to let GENERAL HOSPITAL fans know that he would soon no longer be playing the role of Steve. "I was let go from GH today," he tweeted, "and my last day should be in February sometime."

    On-screen sister Rebecca Herbst (Liz) tweeted her support: "I was so lucky to play his 'sis' but even more blessed to have him in my life," she wrote. "I'm thinking about all the endless possibilities he has to look forward to. He has more musical talent in his little finger..."

    Make sure to pick up the next issue of ABC Soaps In Depth for more details on Steve's exit from Port Charles!

    Anna And Faison Face-Off!

    FaisonAnna.jpg

    Is Faison's reign of terror over... or has it just begun?

    You know you're in trouble when the person you're in love with greets you with a blood curdling scream, while reaching for the nearest wall for balance so as to not fall to the ground and pray for lightning to strike you! Very long sentence but very true sentiment. That is what GENERAL HOSPITAL's Faison was faced with when Anna kicked down "Duke's" Swiss hotel room door, only to find the crazy man with an unhealthy obsession and not her ex-husband behind it. Oh, he's got plans for her, all right. It's gonna get ugly... and it rolls out in the most unexpected way starting Monday!

    Sabrina tried to will her meek little self some courage and confidence to get financial backing for the Nurses' Ball. She must have also been willing a half-naked Patrick to miraculously appear because, ABRACADABRA, there he was! Now THAT'S creative visualization at its very best. Maybe the poor girl should now visualize a hot oil treatment for her frizzy locks and a gift card for the Lancôme counter at the nearest Barney's. Then again, if/when she hunts down Lucy Coe (let's hear a loud Woo HOO!), maybe Miss C will recall her transformation from her own mousy librarian look to red-hot mama and do a little magic where magic really, REALLY needs to be done.

    Todd Manning dishing out parenting advice? Carly should have known better than to take it. She did... and it did not go well. What began as an apology to Michael for calling the police on A.J. turned into "oh hell, yea, I'm going to get in your way!" when he announced that he was going to work at ELQ with his bio dad. So much for Carly sucking it up to make amends with her son. But then a bitchy Carly is a fun Carly... and we love fun Carly.

    Don't forget, 2:00 ET and 1:00 PsT/CT on ABC. Be there!
