An Unholy Alliance Gets Ugly!

MickeyJulianAva.jpg

Ava is delusional. She somehow thought that being "rescued" from Sonny by Julian and Mickey would score her a martini and a quiet evening with Mr. Bubble. Oh boy, was she wrong! Mickey pulled a gun on her and threatened to pop her on the spot unless she told him what she had on Sonny. Julian played along with Mickey but then faster than you can say, "fuhgetaboutit," he got the upper hand and got control of the gun.

Mickey admitted that the cocaine they were dealing was laced with heroine to get the druggies hooked quicker. Julian wanted out and Mickey was, like, "yeah, right. Ha. As if." Mickey was shooed away, leaving the Jerome siblings toasting their success. Little did they know that Shawn had obtained security footage from GH's roof, which showed Julian and Mickey helping Ava escaped via a helicopter!

When Shawn left Sonny's office, Olivia walked in... and evicted him! "Good for her!" you say? Darn right! He fought her decision tooth and nail, until she finally admitted (rather loudly) that seeing his lying, cheating face every day was killing her. He said if he could take back that mistake, he would, only for Liv to come back with "you can't unscrew Ava!" Best response ever, right?

Jordan, meanwhile, snuck into Mickey's Metro Court room to search it at the same exact time Shawn had the same idea. They bickered. He pulled her into a toe-curling kiss. She slapped him. He went in for a second helping. And it was hot, folks. Meanwhile, Mickey was, of course, just steps away from the door, telling someone on the phone that he arranged to send Julian a message he wouldn't forget. Mickey then opened the door and... tune in Monday!

Patrick walked into a conversation between Sam and Silas and brought a polar vortex with him. Silas vehemently denied leaking private info to the reporter, which of course, Patrick didn't believe. Sam wondered if, maybe, Nina was behind that exposition. But how? Their private conversation was on the roof, which was only accessible by stairs. And Nina was confined to a wheelchair. There was only one way to find out -- security footage of the roof. After learning from a hospital employee that one of Sonny's associates had it, Sam knew it was time to ask Sonny for help.

Back in Silas' apartment, Nina was doing a happy dance (literally) now that her hubby and Sam split up. It was clear that her twisted mind was cooking up something nasty for Silas when she told Rosalie, "He owes me a baby." Later, Rosalie left and returned with a bottle of pills. Nina squished a tablet and mixed it in Silas' scotch and soda... and down his hatch it went!

Monday, Julian wants to collect from Ava, the effects of Silas' spiked drink hit and Olivia tells Carly in front of Franco that she will always have a thing for Sonny! Don't forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

AMC's Wittrock Gets FREAK-y!

Finn_Wittrock5408.jpg

While creator Ryan Murphy is remaining tight-lipped about the characters and story details surrounding the upcoming AMERICAN HORROR STORY: FREAK SHOW, he did recently tweet that a daytime alum would be joining the cast of the FX series.

"Thrilled to announce the very talented Finn Wittrock has joined the cast of FREAK SHOW!" he posted on-line.

ALL MY CHILDREN fans will remember Wittrock from his stint as Tad's son, Damon. The actor has also made a name for himself on stage with a critically-acclaimed turn in Death Of A Salesman on Broadway. Wittrock has worked with producer Murphy before, in the recent HBO adaptation of Larry Kramer's The Normal Heart.

EXCLUSIVE: GH Star Swaps His Wife!

ChristopherFamilySwap.jpg

Tonight's episode of CELEBRITY WIFE SWAP features a soap-star switcheroo, with GENERAL HOSPITAL's Tyler Christopher (Nikolas) swapping spouses with THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's ex-Ridge, Ronn Moss. For a preview of the drama, we went straight to Christopher himself to see how the week went!

"I had a blast," the actor reports to Soaps In Depth. "I just tried to be as zany and funny as I possibly could. I poked fun at myself the whole time and never took any part of it seriously. That was my approach to it, so I hope that comes across."

Although before this experience with the reality series, Christopher didn't know fellow soap star Moss well, he had five full days to really get to know his wife, Devin DeVasquez, who tried to loosen up some of his more rigid habits about fitness and diet. "Nothing goes in my mouth before I think about what it's going to do to me," he admits. "I tried to get the point across to her that it's more than about looks and my job — it's about living a longer life and having more energy and being around for [my son] Greysun.

"She tried to get me to 'live' a little bit," he adds. "It's not like I'm so rigid about it that I'm a 'no fun' person!"

And while his wife, Brienne, was living with Moss, Christopher learned to appreciate his spouse even more. "Sometimes you love each other but you can't stand to live with the other person because you have different habits," he says with a laugh. "We're not cut from the same cloth. We're two completely different people and we were raised different ways. Thankfully, for us, it works!"

Watch Christopher and Moss' episode of CELEBRITY WIFE SWAP airing Tuesday, July 22, at 10:00 p.m. EST on ABC or on ABC.com beginning the following day!

Nina Sets Her Scheme In Motion!

SilasNina(2).jpg

As if GENERAL HOSPITAL's Patrick hasn't been through enough, Nina poking her nose in his business is not what he needed... but that is what he got!

When Silas gets wound up, he's a testosterone-filled terror! He placed all blame of Rafe's death on Patrick and Obrecht, and he was going to make them pay! Spotting Obrecht in the hospital corridor, he went right at her, saying, "You and Drake are gonna answer for the blood on your hands!" You've never seen the usually high-strung Obrecht so cool, calm and collected, responding, "You failed your nephew. That's the simple truth." Ouch.

With the news that Rafe was the driver that ran Patrick's car off the road, Anna had some apologizing to do. The PCPD dropped the ball and that was inexcusable. He filled her in on the sordid detail of what was transpiring with Silas, only for the point to be driven home by Obrecht interrupting, saying that Clay was going public with accusations of malpractice. In order to soften the blow, Obrecht said that they had to get out there ahead of him and establish their own narrative to claim their innocence before Silas insisted on their guilt.

The wheels were spinning in the mischievous mind of the malevolent Nina. How could she get Sam out of Silas' life? When she saw Sam giving a comforting hug to Patrick, Nina knew the answer! First order of business was to listen in on a private conversation between Sam and Silas on the hospital roof. That, however, required her climbing out of her wheelchair and onto the stairs to eavesdrop in the doorway. And that she did.

Sam tried to calm down Silas, asking if going to war with Obrecht was worth having his and Rafe's name dragged through the mud. He snickered, "Are you worried about me going to war with Obrecht or that I'll make trouble for Patrick?" On the brink of tears, Sam went on to say that Patrick admitted to her that he thought about hurting Rafe on the table but that he didn't go through with it. Bingo! That's just what Nina needed! If she leaked that to the press, Sam would think that Silas was the culprit and that would be the nail in their romantic coffin!

There was a whole lot of commotion at Nathan and Maxie's apartment. When he arrived at his front door, the lock had been changed and his clothes were in a Hefty bag in the hall. No matter how insistently he denied calling immigration on Levi, she didn't believe him, so OUT you go Nathan. Evicted! But Maxie was blind to the truth -- Nathan didn't call the ICE, Levi did!

Meanwhile across toss, Spencer had this brilliant idea that his father, Nikolas, would reconcile with Britt if she were proven to be a "better specimen" than Liz. To that end, the lad organized a campers versus counselors competition. Sack race, three-legged race, tug-o'-war. His idea, though, was an epic fail when Liz got Nikolas' sympathy vote after it aggravated her gunshot wound. But Spencer had a new plan -- he'd run away!

On Monday's GH, Maxie has a shocking announcement, a reporter catches Silas off guard and Spencer's fate is terrifies Nikolas! Don't forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

Elaine Stritch Passes

ElaineStritch.jpg

Elaine Stritch, legend of stage and screen, has passed away at the age of 89. Best known for her work on Broadway in shows like Company and Show Boat, she earned many Tony nominations and even took home an Emmy for her more recent work on 30 ROCK as the mother of Alec Baldwin's character.

But daytime audiences might remember Stritch's turn as ONE LIFE TO LIVE's Wilma, mother to Thom Christopher's Mortimer and Carlo. When Alex tried to turn Carlo look-alike Mortimer into a passible version of her late husband to keep control of his empire, Wilma arrived in Llanview to find her son. In the end, Carlo was revealed to be alive, and Wilma admitted that she'd had twins and given up Carlo because she couldn't take care of them both.

Our sympathies go out to the friends and family of this show business icon.

GH Star Gets Scary!

MauraWestGal.jpg

Maura West (Ava, GENERAL HOSPITAL) is featured in a new horror movie called Come Back To Me, but she may not make it to the end credits alive! The film tells the story of a woman who begins suffering memory lapses and blackouts, then discovers that she's pregnant — but her husband is sterile! She sets up a hidden camera to keep track of what she's doing during her fugue states, and is shocked by what she discovers!

From the trailer, which you can see here, it seems that West's character, Eileen, has some kind of psychic abilities. Not that they seem to help save her life, if these clips are any indication! The film is adapted from the book The Resurrectionist by Matthew Guinn, and is written and directed by West's former AS THE WORLD TURNS co-star, Paul Leyden (Simon). Look for it in theaters, on iTunes, DirecTV and iN-Demand starting Friday, July 25... if you dare!
