Alicia Talks Courtney's Return!

Alicia_Leigh_Willis_487.jpg

Fan February kicked off with GENERAL HOSPITAL asking its loyal viewers which character from the past they'd like to see return for a special guest appearance and Spencer's mom, Sonny's sis and Nikolas' ex, Courtney, raked in the most votes!

"I was, obviously, so thrilled and moved that they voted for me!" smiles Alicia Leigh Willis, who played Courtney for five years before leaving to pursue other interests. "It was so overwhelming to go back, just the amount of love and excitement that I got because I hadn't seen anybody in so long. It was one of the most touching moments of my life. It was a beautiful reunion of kisses and hugs. It was really special."

The character of Courtney died nine years ago after giving birth to Spencer and then succumbing to a deadly virus. So this wasn't a reunion with her son but rather an introduction. "Although it's the first time Courtney has actually had a chance to meet her son, I feel like in some way she's always been there looking over him," Willis says. "This was a chance to finally tell him that, and it's at a time when he needs it the most."

Willis got a kick out of Nicolas Bechtel (Spencer), saying, "He's 10 going on 40!" Bechtel is a precocious ball of energy that not only charmed her, but also her young daughter, Simone. "Nicolas is incredible!" Willis says. "He has an amazing sense of humor, and he has such a good head on his shoulders. Simone was following him around like a little puppy dog. She followed him around the whole studio. When we had to leave, it was like the world was ending. She didn't want to go. It was very dramatic."

Courtney's visit was a quickie, but one thing's for certain, Willis wouldn't mind popping in and out again in the future. "Spencer needed her now, and I think it was important for him to know that she was there for him," Willis says. "I'm not sure what the future holds, whether or not Courtney will be coming back. I would love to work with Tyler Christopher (Nikolas) again. He's a good friend and I adore him. I would always be open to that opportunity."

Is Liz Out At GH?!

A rumor circulating on the Internet has Jonathan Jackson (ex-Lucky) returning to GENERAL HOSPITAL for a few weeks as a way to usher Rebecca Herbst's Elizabeth off the show. But before fans fly into a tizzy, the actress would like to nip this particular rumor in the bud!

"This is news to me!" Herbst tells Soaps In Depth. "I wasn't aware this rumor was circulating, nor have I heard anything about Lucky coming back to town for a few weeks." As for what's going on in Elizabeth's current storyline, Herbst shares with a smile, "All I can say is, it's gonna be interesting!"

With the reveal that Jake Doe is really the back-from-the-dead Jason, it's certainly not the time to be writing Liz off the canvas! So let's file this particular rumor under "F" for "False."

GH Friday Recap: 'Jake IS Jason!'

JakeLizBall.jpg

What would GENERAL HOSPITAL's Nurses Ball be without 1) getting a glimpse of Lucy in her undies and 2) a relationship catastrophe? This year's gala to benefit the treatment, prevention and awareness of HIV/AIDS was on its way to history repeating itself yet again!

Brad's evening began with a jumping-for-joy reunion with his BFF, Britt, who came out of hiding for one reason and one reason only -- to watch red carpet arrivals with him. With a half-gallon of ice cream and two spoons in hand, the besties poked fun at the dazzlingly dressed folks of PC, waiting -- hoping -- for a blooper, fall or a wardrobe malfunction. Maxie did just fine filling that order! Upon hearing of Spencer's accident, Britt ran to Wyndemere, gave the tyke a pep talk and told him to stop sulking and get his little behind to the ball!

After guests filed into the Metro Court ballroom, the show began. Lucy, looking as lovely as usual, kicked off the evening by introducing the nurses of GH, who welcomed the crowd with song and dance. Then, with a clap of thunder, the stage darkened and Obrecht appeared. Dressed in head-to-toe red, she strutted around the stage, bursting balloons as she sang "99 Red Balloons."

Lucy took the stage and shut her down faster than lanes on the George Washington Bridge and moved right on to the next act. Ric. He looked at Liz and told her to open the box Molly had given her moments earlier. In it, a diamond engagement ring. As a montage of his and Liz's beautiful times together flashed on a giant screen, he looked at her and sang, "[I Wanna] Marry You."

Suddenly, guests gasped as Hayden and Pete's wedding photo was projected behind Ric. Carly and Pete waltzed onto stage and, well, to sum it up, "outted" Ric's scheme. Both furious and humiliated, Liz ran out, and Ric quickly followed. He, of course, used his standard, "I did it because I love you" speech." This time, there was no way she was going to fall for his lies. That was it; they were finished, done, through, kaput.

Meanwhile, Lucy asked Brad up to the stage and save the party like he did last year. With the tempo jacked up a little, he finished Ric's song. The lyrics got the best of him because when he was done, he walked up to Lucas and proposed!

After her part in Ric's plan had been revealed, Hayden ran out with Jake close behind. She confessed everything to him and was even somewhat apologetic. Carly ordered both her and Ric to leave the premises or she'd have security throw them out! At the same time, a frantic Liz ran into a dressing room. She felt like a fool for trusting Ric again. But, more importantly, she realized that Jake's marriage to Hayden was a lie. That meant Liz could be with him. Nikolas did his best to calm Liz, but to no avail. Until, that is, he said those shocking words: "Jake... is Jason!" Liz froze.

Monday on GH, Spencer takes his pursuit of Emma too far, Anna and Duke don't see Lucy coming, and Magic Milo and the Magic Wands! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

Thiebaud Talks Britt's Return!

BrittReturns.jpg

Some things are worth risking jail time for, and one of them is to watch Nurses Ball red carpet arrivals with your bestie! GENERAL HOSPITAL's Britt, who has been in hiding since late last year to avoid child endangerment charges, shocked the socks off of Brad when she showed up at his door. It was the perfect return at the perfect time!

"It was good being back," portrayer Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) grins. "It was just a case of getting used to that [taping] speed again. I didn't have a lot of time to work on the material, so it was [a little] like the first time I set foot in there just trying to find my feet again."

For Thiebaud's beau, Bryan Craig (Morgan), a Britt/Brad reunion was the way to go! "People like seeing Kelly and Parry [Shen, Brad] together," Craig says. "People really like them as a fun pairing. It was a good idea that they thought of bringing her back for that and that she decided to go back for a day."

And it could be just the beginning! "It's like my family away from my family," she says, and one that she wouldn't mind visiting — and working with — again in the future! "I would love that. And I told them when I decided not to re-sign that I'd love to recur. But I don't know if they would do that."

Daytime Emmy Prank Rakes In The Dough!

Ellen DeGeneres and Matt Lauer launched this year's Daytime Emmy Awards ceremony with another installment of their ongoing prank war against each other, this time with DeGeneres using special effects to make it appear that Lauer was stripping down for the camera.

However, her challenge that any time an Emmy winner thanked Lauer in their speech, he would donate $1,000, raised some very serious money because by the end of the evening,16 people had thanked him. DeGeneres matched his donation with $16,001, so he one-upped her a bit more, donating $16,002 to charity. The money raised will be split evenly between UNICEF and Doctors Without Borders.

You can watch Lauer's reaction to the whole experience in the video above!
