DonnaMillsGH.jpg

Could Donna Mills already be back at GENERAL HOSPITAL taping as Madeline? Yesterday, television personality Sandie Newton, who contributes to Hallmark's HOME & FAMILY, tweeted a photo of herself with good friend Ilene Kristen (Delia) and Mills. Since we already know that Kristen has been taping some GH appearances, Mills' Madeline might be back in town, too! And with daughter Nina out of her coma, it's the perfect time for Madeline to return to the canvas... we're sure Nina has some choice words for the woman who killed her baby and put her in a coma!

We're investigating and will let you know as soon as we uncover any details!

"Dead" Ric Is Alive!

RicIsAlive.jpg

It was a ten-tissue day on Friday's GENERAL HOSPITAL, with more tears falling in Port Charles than on Wall Street circa 2008!

Elizabeth and Molly were hit hard by the news of Ric's death. Or, should we say, the kind of death that people on soaps succumb to, which is more like a playing possum, "just kidding!" kind of death. Understandably, Molly was a wreck. "My Dad is dead!" she screamed, throwing herself into Momma Alexis, who matched her daughter tear for tear.

Truth be told, Anna's idea for Ric to fake his death and go into witness protection until they found Julian's boss was really the only thing they could do to protect the people Ric loved. Not that Ric was happy with the plan. In fact, he was fighting mad that it was their only option. When Anna unzipped the body bag and he jumped out, he was one mad hombre. It was torture for him to lay there motionless while his daughter and the woman he loved wept in agony over losing him.

Part of Molly's grief was that she didn't get to say goodbye to him, so Alexis reluctantly brought her to the morgue to say a final farewell. Anna used the old "she shouldn't see her father in that condition" speech on Alexis to keep the teen from seeing that he wasn't dead at all. But, just like any/every wily teenager, Molly snuck in. Hidden behind a door, the very much alive Ric had to listen once again to his little girl fall to pieces. This time, it was he who couldn't stop crying! After everyone turned off the waterworks, he slipped on some scrubs, put on a surgical cap and mask and left, not to be seen or heard from again until... well, until storyline dictates!

Meanwhile, Liz was in her own fog, unable to shake her grief. She had vanished from her shift at the hospital, which threw Obrecht into a tizzy. Obrecht chewed Liz a new one, Liz sassed Dr. O back and when all was said and done, Liz got fired. Nikolas having seen on the TV at The Floating Rib that Ric was shot and killed, raced to GH to comfort and support Liz. Their warm, fuzzy interaction was spotted from afar by Britt, who got "that" look on her face with "that" wicked eyebrow. When Obrecht saw her daughter looking troubled, she asked if she could do something to help. Britt thought a moment and said, "Help me get Nikolas back." Uh oh.

Felix was drippy-eyed, too. Not because of Ric, but because of Sabrina, whose pain over her newborn son's death caused her to go a little bonkers the day before. What a good friend that Felix is. He cried for his BFF's heartache and was rewarded for his sympathetic soul with a bear hug from Lucas in a hospital gown.

Monday, Sonny learns of Ric's death and confronts Anna, Duke has it out with Julian, Rafe is caught in the act, and Patrick -- hold onto your seats Scrubs fans -- admits he thinks his marriage is over! Don't forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

GENERAL HOSPITAL star Maurice Benard (Sonny) will be appearing on the Oprah Winfrey Network series, OPRAH: WHERE ARE THEY NOW?, later this summer!

Back in 2007, Benard and his wife, Paula, were guests on THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW in an episode featuring the topic of bipolar disorder. Although the Emmy winner has been outspoken about the mental illness that both he and his character share, Benard rarely appears on talk shows... but who could say no to Oprah?

Now, Soaps In Depth has learned, OWN caught up with the Benards for a segment on WHERE ARE THEY NOW?, the popular series that tracks down the most memorable OPRAH SHOW guests for updates on their lives today.

We will let you know as soon as we get a date confirmed for the Benard family, but in the meantime, all new episodes of OPRAH: WHERE ARE THEY NOW? air every Sunday at 9 p.m. ET/PT on OWN.

Is Miller GH's New Jason?

MillerBurton.jpg

Ever since Billy Miller left the role of Billy at THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, there has been speculation that the fan favorite would be snatched up by GENERAL HOSPITAL to take over the part of Jason (previously played by Steve Burton, who is now Y&R's Dylan!). And last night, TV Guide's Michael Logan added some fuel to that particular fire by posting to Twitter: "Billy Miller. General Hospital. Done deal? This is what I'm hearing."

When contacted for comment on the possible casting coup, a rep for GH replied simply, "We don't have any info on that." Could the rumor be true? Is Robin going to succeed in saving Jason and bring him back to Port Charles with a slightly different face? Or could Miller be playing someone else? What do you think?

The Daytime Emmys have a host! The National Academy Of Television Arts & Sciences announced today that the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will be hosted by Emmy Award-winning comedian Kathy Griffin.

"I am beyond thrilled to be hosting what I'm told is the most important television event of the year," Griffin says. "Knowing that over 100 million people from every corner of the planet will be watching, I will try to keep my nerves at bay and deliver a great show. I can only hope that at the end of the evening, critics and fans alike will compare it to the experience they once had watching Neil Armstrong take man's first step on the moon. My only regret is knowing that this epic evening will distract millions of viewers from enjoying this year's World Cup. I apologize to FIFA."

The 2014 Daytime Emmy Awards will be held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday, June 22 at 5:00 p.m. PST, and the ceremony will be broadcast live over the Internet at www.daytimeemmys.net.

Nina Makes Herself At Home!

SilasNina.jpg

Oh, Nina, Nina, Nina. You're projecting this "sugar and spice and everything nice" kind of air but -- we add with a single raised eyebrow -- we have this sneaking suspicion that there's a little vinegar running through those veins.

Awkward! That's the feeling of every moment alone between Silas and his "not as dead as he thought she was" wife, Nina, on GENERAL HOSPITAL. He's sleeping on the sofa while she snuggles up in his bed. Alone. A fact she attributes to his romantic, gentlemanly nature of wanting to get to know her again after her being in a 20-year coma. Ha! She is either as naïve as a Disney princess or as manipulative as that princess' evil stepmom.

Silas has to fess up about his loving and rather healthy relationship with Sam sooner rather than later. If he's as chicken as all that, maybe something will bring up the topic in a more indirect way. There is one thing that ties him and Sam together that doesn't involve the need for contraception and that is Rafe. Could Rafe's newly discovered addiction to drugs be the catalyst for Silas' truth coming out?

Also on the unhappy home front, there's Ava. Sonny insisted she move into his spacious place until she has her baby... and then he's going to kill her. At least he gave her fair warning, right? And there's no way she can escape, considering he's got Max shadowing her like he was secret service on the POTUS. That might solve one problem for Sonny but it is creating another giant one. Olivia.

Olivia approached Sonny with hopes that they could get along because of their grandchild. And, frankly, she was slowly softening to his charms. Then the door to his house flew open and in walked Ava, shouting, "Honey! I'm home!" For a minute there, Olivia went silent. Yes, she did. If the news that Ava was moving in wasn't twisted enough for Olivia, then the other shoe dropped and she learned Ava was pregnant. Ava kinda got a kick out of the idea of ripping apart this once happy relationship. In fact, she looked rather pleased with herself. Olivia's reaction to Sonny's begging wasn't nearly as happy. "You go to hell!" were her exact words.

Three was most definitely a crowd in Maxie's apartment, too. When Nathan rushed out to answer his phone wearing nothing but water drops and a towel, all was fine. And we do mean fine! Maxie resisted all humanly temptation by keeping her eyes on him above the neck and expressed her supreme gratitude for the way he went out on a limb for her with the judge. Their eyes locked. And they stayed locked. Until Levi interrupted with a "What's going on here?"

After Nathan stepped out of the room to put on some clothes (bummer), Maxie told Levi how Det. Sexypants-less did her a huge favor. Not what Levi wanted to hear. She told him she decided she wanted to see her daughter and how Nathan, basically, lied to the judge to hopefully make that happen. Levi sensed there was something going on between his girlfriend and their other roomie. Although Maxie denied it, Levi was undoubtedly right.

Monday on GH, Nathan reacts to news that his sister/cousin is alive, Nina learns the truth about Rafe and a confrontive Morgan has it out with Sonny and Ava! Don't forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!
