And a couple of other quick GH blurbies.  

This just in!!  Alexis is set to run for DA and Scott decides to play dirty!  He finds out that Carly just might know something about Alexis' baby that he needs to know and seriously puts the screws to her to find out!!  (Pssst.  He threatens to have Michael taken away from her if she doesn't tell!!  What a DOG!!)

Jeffery Meek of "Raven" and "Search For Tomorrow" fame...most recently of "Who the hell is that hot guy playing Father or Is It Reverend Dade" fame.  As I understand it, FOITR Dade will also be presiding over Jax and Skye's wedding!  So we have not yet seen the last of him.  Another Coleman, perhaps??

WOW!!  Check out the very candid Laura interview in TV Guide!!!

Why Genie Really Left!

I Wub My Source!!

*sigh*  I'm so lucky.  *sigh*  Most people have sources who are cold, remote folks who work at ABC or on this mag or that.  I have absolutely the most loving, caring, generous sources on the block.  When my usual sources dried up a while back and got all stupid about giving out info, the real Sooper Scooper Troopers came through and anted up with goods.  Now, they take such good care of me, which lets me take good care of you.  {Now if those OLTL and AMC SST's would come out of hiding, we'd have it made!!}  Talk about "ask and you shall receive."  One of my most special sources heard that youse mugs were wondering what was going on OTHER than the J-B-S-C show (or rather in the remaining 15 minutes of the show each day) and delivered the most wonderful goodie bag of scoopies for my darlings.  Thank you, My Precious!!  You know who you are!!

Carly goes into mob moll mode and wades into a meeting of Sonny's rivals, telling them there's no way they're getting their greasy hands on one inch of his territory!  Jason is NOT pleased with her actions!

Jason comes to Courtney's rescue again and AJ is bummed that Jason saved her and he could not.

Speaking of relative-envy, NIKOLAS is the one to help Luke escape and that doesn't sit well with Lucky.

Why is the bride's side of the church so sparse at Jax and Skye's wedding (OK, you knew there had to be some Sax stuff in here because GOD KNOWS Skye's not getting any play now that Brenda's around!)?  It's because she tells Alan, Monica and Edward that they are UNinvited!!  But where are those Pine Valley folks??

Liz's fur gets in an uproar when Jason won't discuss his connection with Courtney.

Carly asks the good (and handsome - just who the complete hell IS that Rick Webber #1-looking guy?) Father Dade about the woman in the church...and Jax overhears!

It's not just Jason who is bailing Courtney out of trouble!!  Coleman also comes to her rescue!

The phone is NOT Courtney's friend in the future!

Scott makes a critical error when he lies to Bobbie.  He doesn't hesitate to use Sonny's death to his own advantage.  Lucky is out to get the D.A.!!

Ned and Alexis learn that they are having a healthy baby girl.

Carly finds Sonny despite Jason and Benny's best efforts.

Yep, Roy's in on it.

Felicia gets pushy about wanting to be in the thick of things, much to Roy's frustration.  

Sept 17, 2002

Darlings!!!  I just got a PILE of wonderful new Jax and Skye and Brenda info that I thought you J&B people might like to relish for a while!   

There’s a slight correction on the first J&B meeting.  She fills him in on the Alcazar situation and her situation and he lets her know that he’s pissed she stayed away (but understands why).  Skye interrupts them as he hears her coming in for some wedding night lovins.  Before she goes, Jax gives Brenda his cell phone.  Skye is taken a bit aback by the intense passion Jax shows toward her and responds in kind (not very kind if you ask me!!  Can we say “transference?”  Don’t smack ME, the messenger, Sax fans…it’s pretty doggoned obvious, from what I hear). 

After da lovin’s, Jax arranges to meet Brenda at her old cottage, reminding her, “Nobody leaves.” 

Jax cancels his honeymoon and tells Skye it’s just too dangerous with Alcazar out to get him. 

My funky little kitty in the pic isn't the only thing that turns up nekkies!  Jax catches Brenda en route from the shower to grab a robe! 

Speaking of Nekkies Brenda, I got some wrong info and want to correct it.  I was told that VM got the tattoo on her back after the birth of her son and that it had spiritual significance to her.  The info was half right.  It definitely has significance to her and means "peace," but she's had it for some time prior to the birth of her child and it was previously covered on GH with body make up. 

Anyway, back to the new future instead of the distant past. Jax just can’t stay away from Brenda and the week of the 30th, there’s a shootout at the cottage.  Alcazar shoots Jax and Sonny shows up and shoots Alcazar (both are only wounded).  

Brenda is FURIOUS with Sonny for using Jax as bait to lure out Alcazar (and probably even more furious that crack shot Sonny only winged him).  She goes to wounded Jax and tells him that she loves him and begs him to stay with her and not die, “Nobody leaves,” she says. 

The triangle continues for a while with Jax torn over his devotion to Skye and his passion for Brenda.  Alcazar is still determined to take down Jax and that poses a continued threat, especially when Skye begins to figure out what is going on.   

At this point, as I said in the previous column, contract negations have not been broached for VM, but the powers that be are into this story enough to consider a recast so that it may be told should she decide to leave.  All indications that it’s “so far, so good” with her return as far as she is concerned and she’s very happy to be there.   

Another correction that I wasn’t sure where it was going to fall until I got official confirmation.  It was rumored forever that Coleman would escort Courtney to Jax’s wedding, but that idea has been modified to “Courtney has a stalker and you think it’s Coleman, but it’s not, it’s really one of the guys who became obsessed with her when she was as stripper and Coleman saves her.”  The fans love Coleman, so Coleman is getting a meatier script!!  

Why, Oh Why is there no Liason info?  No other story info?  Pfft.  Go figure.  It's the Jax & Sonny & Carly & Skye & Brenda Show now.  You'll catch a tiny bit on Liason as they work on Liz dealing with Sonny's death (since she's the only one who doesn't know he's alive) as she comforts Jason and Carly.  You'll see a little Ned and Alexis stuff.  You'll even see a touch of Courtney here and there, but for the most part, one story (Anyone Alcazar) is the bulk of the show.  All Eggs One Basket Nes Pas?  There' s no Liason info because there's NO Liason info.  They are getting dragged out until November as predicted.  My Uncensored Column will cover this (don't read it if you don't want to be offended, trust me) later this week (didn't get to it last week...sorry).

Also YES!  I do know that a few renegade forces are reporting that MR will be doing double duty rather than leaving GH, but a source close to her STILL (as of yesterday) insists that she's leaving.

By the way, that was Judy Collins singing "Amazing Grace."  Hit Grokster, my loves.

Love you always, baby!

Not one god-blessed thing on AMC.  I have wracked my brain for something interesting to say about the show and I’m getting a big old blank.  There just isn’t one freakin’ thing about the show that interests me.  What sucks about that is that it’s my FAVORITE show of the three I’m able to watch.  


Don’t look for Florencia Lozano (Tea) to hit the mainland with Mr Manning.  Her last day to air is tomorrow, September 17th when Todd leaves her on the island and promises to send help back for her and for Ross.  Since Tea’s affections seem to change with the wind direction (OK, so MORE than the wind direction on that island, which seems to shift once a week…she shifts at least 2-3 times that often), I expect she’ll be either married to Ross or a coconut by the time the Coast Guard gets to them IF Todd remembers to drop the word that Ross and Tea are still island bound. 

We’ve been given plenty of notice that OLTL is being bumped in favor of a one hour, super hyped, hepped up episode of Port Charles on December 30th.  The line up will go from AMC, right to PC and on to GH with no OLTL that day.  There’s no word yet on what will happen for people LIKE SAGE who don’t normally “get” Port Charles in their happy cable company line up.  Maybe we’ll just get enough to make us hate our cable company more for not carrying it or maybe they’ll air an episode of CHiPS or something.  

Gary Tomlin, EP for OLTL is teasing us by saying “familiar faces” will be showing up in Llanview this fall, but won’t even give us hints as to who. 

Wha’?  ROXY switched Jess and Natalie BEFORE Allison did?  Is there any chance that this can be done in a good way and not an idiotic way? 

Bring on Luna’s ghost, honey.  Sage is READY!! 


BRAVISIMO!!!  I can’t say one evil thing about Monday’s episode of GH.  Even the people I despise were faboo. 

Yes, the rumors are true…it’s a toe dipped in the swimming pool to check the temp on a Courtney and Coleman union.  It’s going to border on a bit creep as someone seems to be stalking her, but they will definitely go to Jax and Skye’s wedding together and the powers that be want to see if they are going to work out. 

AJ will be away for three weeks to settle some legal woes for Edward while Billy Warlock tips off to film the Baywatch reunion.  While he’s gone, will Coleman make his mark?  Maybe a spark?  In the dark?  

Yes, sadly, Marissa Ramirez will be leaving GH in October to join the cast of “Miracles.”  She will last air in November.  Rumor is that there is no recast planned and with Jacob Young supposedly leaving in December and Elizabeth partying with the Big Mob People, will Coltin Scott be far behind?  That will be the last of the Cassadines or Cassadine relateds other than Alexis.  If we can get Helena back to wind up the attic story, maybe we can possibly NOT close an important chapter in GH history. 

Yes, Felicia is spared and does not fall into the Pit of Demise with Alcazar.  Don’t think that when all is said and done, she and her guurrrlllls are out of danger just because it looks like Sonny is dead.  

Contrary to early rumors, we scoopsters were fed some bad info.  Sonny and Brenda do NOT have contact at the safe house.  In fact, she never even knows that he’s there.  He listens in on her conversation with Jason through a vent as she begs Jason to let her go to Jax.  

Look for Jax and Skye’s wedding to be very intimate and extremely romantic on the 27th.  He only has eyes for her (for now) and the wedding goes off without a hitch…except… 

That there is a bevy of uninvited guests behind the scenes:  Alcazar and Brenda are in a life and death struggle over a gun when he tries to kill Jax.  Jason intervenes and almost takes a bullet himself.  Roy and Felicia are also there with Jason, waiting for Alcazar to make his move.  

AJ walks Skye down the aisle and Ned actually gives Skye his warm blessings. 

After the wedding, Jax surprises Skye with a lavish reception.  

The words of Ned’s toast to the happy couple have an impact on both him and Alexis.  Afterwards, they get some sage (smile) advice from John and Jane Jacks when the bridal bouquet lands smack into Alexis’ lap.  When they are alone, they share a close moment as they come close to discussing their future together. 

As they are preparing to leave for their honeymoon, Brenda carjacks the limo and it speeds away.  

Hey, on Sept 27th, you’re finally going to see that dog again!! 

Jax and Skye are about to share a passionate wedding night at the Lake House when Skye slips away to change into something more “comfortable.”  Imagine Jax’s surprise when Brenda says, “Congratulations.” 

Look for lots of Jax and Brenda action on the 30th.  He tells her how much he loves Skye.  She tells him that she has her mother’s disease and there is no future for them.  He makes love to Skye like mad, but his mind is on Brenda.  

Brenda will find out soon that she does NOT have the terminal illness and that her information of that was planted by Alcazar.  She and Jax will be frequently thrown together (imagine Brenda, towel from shower scenes) and yes, it will ultimately end up as Jax and Brenda with Alcazar and Skye working together to keep them apart.  How long the loves lasts this time will be totally dependent on whether or not Vanessa resigns her short-term contract.  Word is she’s waiting to see how the character is written and how her infant son fares with her work schedule.  Beyond that, it’s anybody’s ball game but you can rest assured it will NOT be a Sonny and Brenda pairing.  

Who’s in on Sonny’s fake death?  Carly, for one.  She meets up with Sonny and tells him how shocked she was when he was actually *in* the casket when Taggert tactlessly demanded it was opened.  Sonny tells her that he took a drug to induce deep sleep so he was out like a light during the funeral.  Jason knew and Roy was in on it as well.   

Michael and Courtney are devastated by Sonny’s “death.”  MONICA even attends Sonny’s funeral, probably for the same reason as Taggert. 

It’s after Sonny is “dead” that AJ decides to go for custody of Michael.  That won’t happen until he returns from his trip, so expect Sonny to be “dead” for a while.  {this part is rumor and subject to change} 

We’re hearing the same as you:  That’s it’s actually a well-manicured, Casadine hand that is at work in the destruction of the Spencer clan.  Yes, it appears that when Helena laid her curse upon Luke and Laura all those years ago, she finally got tired of waiting for fate to take over and wrangled their destruction herself!   

Nope, I don’t think Kim McCullough is returning to GH.  If she does, I think it would only be for a visit. 

Heard the rumors about Kale Brown (ex-Sam Rappaport on OLTL) coming to GH?  Turns out it was only part true.  Kale will be heard as an announcer who reports Sonny’s death.   

Nope, no honeymoon for the newest Mr and Mrs Jacks after Jax nixes the idea.  DENIED!! 

Watch for some great scenes with Carly handling some of Sonny’s business associates!   

Lastly, I spoke to the prez of Loren Freeman's (Elton's) fan club and honey, he's ALL OVER the idea of Elton as Alexis' Manny!!  (that's right, "Manny" instead of "Nanny")  She encourages everyone to write, write, WRITE to the powers that be!  Viewers are making a difference all the time and we can make this happen!  She tells me that he's not been released from the role of Elton, but has no upcoming scenes, so speak your minds, my little precious ones!!  But your pens where your mouths are, or something like that!  You can find out where to write by clicking here!!

And that, darlings, is that!  If I get more, I’ll print it! 

Take care
