Everything You Need to Know About Dr. Britt Westbourne on GENERAL HOSPITAL!

Dec 1, 2017 4:01 pm

By Chris Eades

With Britt Westbourne making another return to GENERAL HOSPITAL, some viewers might not be up to date on who she is and why some people might not be so happy to see her again! The character first appeared on GH back in September of 2012 played by Kelly Thiebaud, who is bringing her scheming alter ego back to Port Charles for more drama!

As soon as Dr. Britt Westbourne began working at General Hospital, she began crushing on fellow physician Patrick Drake, who was grieving the loss of his wife, Robin. Britt enlisted Nurse Sabrina Santiago to babysit Patrick’s daughter, Emma, so she could move in on the doc, but he started to develop feelings for Sabrina instead! Jealous, Britt tried to blackmail Maxie into ruining Sabrina’s career, but Frisco stepped in to defend his daughter and Britt backed off.

However, Britt soon got some help from her equally-devious mom, Dr. Liesl Obrecht. And it was also revealed that her dad was none other than legendary GH supervillain Cesar Faison! At her mother’s urging, Britt took the stage at the Nurses Ball to reveal that she was pregnant with Patrick’s baby, and Obrecht helped tamper with paternity tests to keep everyone believing her daughter’s lie.

During this scheme, Britt began to fall for Nikolas Cassadine, and finally confessed that her baby wasn’t Patrick’s — Brad had donated sperm to impregnate her. She gave birth to a baby boy she named Ben, but Obrecht abducted the infant, and Nik and Britt found the child with Faison on Cassadine Island. Jerry Jacks took Britt and others hostage until Robin cured him of his poisoning, and Britt offered to help Robin come up with a solution.

After the dust settled, Britt began a relationship with Nikolas, but then Obrecht blackmailed her daughter to get her out of jail. She threatened to reveal that Britt had actually stolen one of Lulu and Dante’s frozen embryos, making them the real parents of her son! Unfortunately, the truth came out after Nikolas proposed, and he dumped her (Lulu being his sister and all). Obrecht tried to steal Ben and urged Britt to leave the country with the boy, but instead, Britt called the cops on her mom and gave Ben to Lulu and Dante.

Britt resisted her mother’s attempts to make nice and tried to use Spencer to help win back Nikolas. The kid pretended to be kidnapped so Britt could look like the hero who rescued him. However, when Obrecht threatened to tell Nik the truth, Britt cut her off at the pass by confessing herself! So not only was that the end of her future with Nikolas, but he threatened to have her arrested! Looking to escape, Britt met with her parents at the docks where they were planning to leave Port Charles. However, when Obrecht decided to stay with Nathan, who had been shot, Britt left with Faison.

A year later, in 2015, Britt returned briefly to hang out with BFF Brad and snark at everyone at the Nurses Ball on TV. She also caught up with Obrecht and visited Spencer, who was suffering from his burns, then left again. What brings Britt back to town this time? Does she have information about Faison for the people looking for him? Or could she be up to something else?

You’ll have to stay tuned to find out! And for more GH news, keep reading the ABC edition of Soaps In Depth magazine!

GENERAL HOSPITAL Recaps —

Anna Loses Control!


Dec 3, 2017 9:00 am

By Soaps in Depth

After approaching Sonny about a partnership, Cassandra told Valentin she was developing a potent new drug. He in turn told Anna, who knew just how to use Finn... but later, the WSB agent insisted the doctor back down for his own safety. Nina, meanwhile, met with Cassandra and failed to hide her ulterior motives. Worried for his family, Valentin told Anna she’d better act fast or he’d have to, while Finn put a plan into motion without her permission.

Julian’s Released!

After Nora spoke for Liv and confirmed that her client had forced Julian to do her bidding, the issue was the hot topic at Alexis’ Thanksgiving — which blew up shortly after Sam and Jason arrived. Left alone with Bensch (who was still bonding with Kiki!), Alexis made a pass at him, but he didn’t believe she was over Julian. Alexis was tempted to drink... only to have Julian sidle up to her at the bar! Facing a retrial, he was sporting an ankle monitor and agreed they couldn’t reunite. Still, the connection between the exes was palpable.

Oscar Gets a New Lead

Robin showed up at Carly’s Thanksgiving dinner and rehashed her own return from the dead with Patient Six. This inspired him to visit Sam and tell her that, while he was definitely Jason, he would wait to fight for her and Danny until he had proof. To that end, he reviewed the case file on his 2012 shooting and asked Anna to help him find Faison, so she pointed him to Obrecht. Back at Carly’s, Oscar and his mother, Kim, joined the family dinner. When she recognized Patient Six as Drew — a former Navy SEAL she’d known — Oscar and Josslyn got ideas about his paternity


Jason Fought for Sam

Franco was upset when Jason found comfort in Elizabeth. Upon learning Robin believed Patient Six was Drew, Franco urged Jason to fight for his identity. Jason then told Sam he couldn’t accept her questioning him! Sam countered that she loved him, and asked why that wasn’t enough. Recommitted, Jason and Sam made love. Josslyn and Oscar later showed up at the door with a made-up excuse, and Kim showed up right behind them. Oscar was surprised to learn that his mother had tracked his phone, while Jason later confessed that there was something familiar to him about Kim.

Ava Gets Closer

Griffin wanted to spend Thanksgiving with Ava, but she got rid of him so she could meet with a shady cosmetic surgeon. After signing the paperwork, she decided to go under the knife that night... only to have Griffin show up with information about a class action suit against the sleazy doc! Disappointed, Ava let Griffin console her.

Secrets Come Out

With the truth about Man Landers revealed, a furious Quinn insisted Nathan and Amy confess on TV. Instead, Chet took the blame... and sales skyrocketed! Maxie and Nathan hid their baby news — which caused trouble at Dante and Lulu’s Thanksgiving dinner. When the couple finally told Lulu, Obrecht, Mac, Felicia, and Sam, everyone was overjoyed... even as the truth about someone else’s paternity remained in question. Lulu planned to contact Peter August about a job at Aurora, while Sam bonded with Nina over her situation.

Will Andre Come Home?

After an emotional Thanksgiving and a heated lovemaking session, Jordan and Curtis followed a lead on Andre. When they got their hands on the psychiatrist in Cuba, however, he refused to reveal what he knew about the Jason situation... and reminded them that the country had no extradition policy!

GENERAL HOSPITAL Spoilers 12/4/17 — Sam Chooses Andrew!


Dec 4, 2017 12:05 pm

By Chris Eades

Now that the truth about who is Jason and who is Andrew has finally been revealed, the real drama begins in these spoilers from GENERAL HOSPITAL! Sam has two men to choose between, and someone’s heart will be broken. Plus, Nelle has a surprise for Michael and Josslyn has a plan to help Oscar find out who his father is!

Andre was dragged back to Port Charles by Curtis and Jordan to clear up the mystery of the two Jasons, and now he’s locked up in a cell at the police station for his crimes. Franco, who helped keep the secret for Andre, leans into the prison bars to confront him. “I need a session, Doc,” Franco taunts. “In the worst way.”

Elizabeth’s world was rattled by the revelation of Jason and Andrew’s true identities, and she worries how she’s going to tell Jake the story of his father. Meanwhile, Franco is just worried that he’s going to lose Liz to Jason now that he’s back for real. Robin corners Liz in the hospital to give her a warning. “I’m here to ask you not to do that,” Robin cautions. What is Liz thinking of doing?


Michael is surprised when Nelle approaches him at the Metro Court bearing gifts. “I ordered you a Christmas present before we broke up,” she explains, reaching into a shopping bag. But does Michael want anything else from her?

Josslyn is eager to help Oscar discover who his father really is and has purchased a DNA testing kit so they can finally get to the bottom of this mystery. “By this time tomorrow,” she promises, reaching for the box, “you’ll have your answer.” But is Oscar ready for the truth?

Learning that he’s not really Jason was a massive blow to Andrew, who now has to face the reality that all of his memories are false and he has no idea who he really is. But Sam is sticking by her husband, reminding him that the memories they made with each other are real. “We’re in this together,” she insists. And out on the docks, Alexis urges Jason to be careful how he proceeds from here if he intends to take Sam away from her current husband and the family they’ve built together. “Please,” she begs, “don’t make her give that up.” What will Jason do next?

GENERAL HOSPITAL Star Kirsten Storms Shows off Her New Hair Color and Her Daughter's Attempt to Do Her Makeup!

Actress Kirsten Storms (Maxie, GENERAL HOSPITAL) was showing off her makeup technique on Instagram, but the real star of the photo was her beautiful new hair color! “Smokey eye,” she posted before adding, “yes, I lightened my hair.” And the results are just stunning


https://www.instagram.com/p/BcN5uJFh7FG/

Following some time away to recover during a leave of absence from GH, Storms returned to social media to show how she was getting back into the swing of things again with a new hair color, cut, and new piercings in her ears. Returning to work feeling much better, the actress also opened up to explain that she needed to take time off because she was battling depression. But now Storms is back in Port Charles and diving into a big new storyline as Maxie and Nathan are expecting their first baby!

Storms is a great mom herself, co-parenting her daughter, Harper, with ex-husband Brandon Barash (ex-Johnny, GH). Little Harper is getting ready to turn four in January, and it also looks like she’s preparing for a career in cosmetology! As you can see in this video Storms posted, Harper has crazy makeup skills. Now that’s a smoky eye! “My eyelids look beautiful,” mom says in the clip. “You said I look like a kitty cat?” And when Harper says she still needs some more makeup and asks what color she should use, Storms chuckles and suggests blue!


Harper’s styling efforts aside, Storms has always looked gorgeous no matter how she cuts or styles her hair. And over her decades in daytime, the actress has shown off lots of different looks, sometimes going long, other times super short. She’s also experimented with shades from platinum blonde to chocolate brown! Check out some of Storms' most stylish hairdos in the special gallery below!

anecdotes about the past.

In her interview with Voldemort, she say she's thrilled to have Tamara back. One gets the feeling though that she wishes Tamara were playing Carly as Jackie says she loved the mother daughter dynamic they have.

Rebecca Herbst Looks Back on Her 20 Years at GENERAL HOSPITAL! (EXCLUSIVE)
Updated: Dec 5, 2017

In August of 2017, GENERAL HOSPITAL star Rebecca Herbst celebrated 20 years in Port Charles, and while some of the photos in the gallery below take her way back, she remains as excited about her job in 2017 as she was in 1997. “I still look forward to coming to work every day,” Elizabeth’s portrayer confided to Soaps In Depth. “I still get butterflies in my stomach at night about memorizing my lines."

Over the past two decades, Liz has been married multiple times, had some kids with different guys, and been at the center of some of the biggest drama on the soap! (Most recently finding herself caught up in the mystery of the two Jasons.) And back in August, GH threw the actress a smashing anniversary party, so she shared some photos with her fans!

see her video here:

http://www.abc.soapsindepth.com/post...-burton-269680


"I love GH," Herbst enthused. "It just hasn’t gotten old for me. I feel the same as I did 20 years ago. “I don’t feel this major milestone or accomplishment has been reached... but I do know it’s something to be proud of,” she adds. “If I can look at it objectively, it’s pretty incredible that it’s been 20 years!”

And what a couple of decades it's been! Check out some classic pics from Herbst's history on GH in the special gallery below where she reminisces about old storylines and co-stars like Tyler Christopher (ex-Nikolas), Amber Tamblyn (ex-Emily), and Rick Hearst (ex-Ric)!

Meghan Markle Started Her Acting Career on GENERAL HOSPITAL — See the Video!

The world is abuzz with the news that Meghan Markle is engaged to Prince Harry, but some might not be aware that the brunette beauty has a connection to GENERAL HOSPITAL! The LA-born Markle has an extensive acting resume and is best known for playing Rachel Zane on USA’s SUITS, a role she began in 2011. She has also appeared in series like WITHOUT A TRACE, CSI: NY, 90210, and CASTLE, as well as the films Get Him to the Greek and Horrible Bosses. But way, way back at the very beginning of her showbiz career, Markle made an appearance as a nurse named Jill in the episode of GH that aired on Nov. 14, 2002.

In that episode, AJ was desperate to convince Courtney to give him a second chance to prove himself after she dumped him, and an ailing Brenda wanted Jason to take her back to Europe because she felt her condition was worsening. Alexis had an angry confrontation at the hospital with Alcazar, who she blamed for the death of her sister, Kristina. Markle's role as Jill was what is called an "under five" meaning she did have a few lines of dialogue as well as appearing in the background. You can see clips of her interacting with John J. York's Mac and Ingo Rademacher's Jax in the video below!

http://www.abc.soapsindepth.com/post...ospital-147566


Her father, Thomas W. Markle, worked as a director of photography on the classic sitcom MARRIED WITH CHILDREN, and also was a lighting director for some other series, including GH! Although according to the IMDb, his last episode aired in 2012, long before his daughter made her appearance.

Marc Anthony Samuel didn’t make his debut as Felix on GH until December of 2012, so he wasn't in any scenes with Markle, but the actor shared his best wishes to his friend on social media, tweeting: “Congrats to my friend, Meghan Markle, and Prince Harry. Such exciting news!”


Markle started her career in Hollywood as a model, and even appeared as one of the briefcase girls on the game show DEAL OR NO DEAL. And now she is engaged to marry Prince Harry, fifth in line for the British throne, in early 2018. From background day player on GH all the way to Duchess — that’s quite a life!

GH's Kimberly McCullough Shared the Most Amazing Baby Bump Photo!

Actress and director Kimberly McCullough (Robin, GENERAL HOSPITAL), gave birth to her beautiful baby boy Otis back in June. But as she neared her due date, the GH fan favorite shared her own absolutely amazing take on the infamous Beyoncé pregnancy announcement photo from Instagram!

https://www.instagram.com/p/BS1P-xMlA3M/

Who is Kimberly McCullough's Partner?

The actress broke the news of her pregnancy back in December of 2016 in an emotional blog post that chronicled what was a year of healing and regrouping after her confession in January that she had suffered a miscarriage and lost her daughter in September of 2015.

At the end of her post, McCullough revealed that she, her dog Jack, and the man whose identity she’s keeping anonymous, had moved out of Los Angeles and into Ojai valley. “It’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made,” she wrote, adding, “Two weeks before we moved in, I found out I was pregnant again. And although I no longer have the luxury of being naive, I can’t help but think the timing is just perfect. Despite all the politics and the horrendous election, this year has been such a blessing.”


Is Robin Pregnant on GH?

McCullough returned to GH in May to reprise her role as Robin Scorpio to help her mother, Anna, deal with her medical condition, and fans noticed during her scenes that the baby bump was already showing. Even though the show dressed the actress in baggy clothes and made sure to shoot scenes with props like large bags to obscure her bump.

“Loving the computer obstruction,” McCullough joked on Twitter of some hospital scenes that placed a monitor in front of her during scenes between Robin and Griffin. “Very subtle.” When a fan tweeted that they found themselves looking specifically to spot the baby bump, the actress replied, “Oh, it’s there!”

Then, in the Feb. 24 episode, Robin stunned her mother by informing Anna that she was expecting another child! So from that point on, the soap didn't have to hide McCullough's real-life pregnancy anymore and wrote it in by having Robin and Patrick welcome a second child, a son, Noah Patrick Drake

GENERAL HOSPITAL's Laura Wright Reveals How She Met Boyfriend Wes Ramsey! (EXCLUSIVE)

Carly’s relationship with Sonny on GENERAL HOSPITAL may be a little volatile, but her portrayer, actress Laura Wright, has found a fabulous new love with boyfriend Wes Ramsey! The two were co-stars back on GUIDING LIGHT in the early 2000’s, but hadn’t seen each other for years until the 2017 Daytime Emmys brought them back together!

“We knew each other back in the day,” Wright confided to Soaps In Depth, but we hadn’t seen each other or talked until we ran into each other at an Emmy party on April 26. I was joking around with Donnell Turner (Curtis) about the line at the bar and Wesley turned around. I was like, ‘Oh my God! What’s up?’ And that was it.”

https://www.instagram.com/p/BcSJnftAg5W/

Wright has been single for a few years after separating from her husband, John, with whom she has two children, Lauren and John. But the time was right and fate stepped in to bring her a brand new love! The actress loves sharing photos of her life on her Instagram, and made her new relationship with Ramsey public with a beautiful post just a month later, in May.

“There were times I was out with him and people would ask for a picture of me, and then they’d see him and react,” Wright explained. “One person was like, ‘That’s not your husband!’ I’m not married. So I thought, ‘I’m just going to end this.’ Plus, I’m big on social media. I’m an open book, so it was just a matter of time.”

Since that first introductory post, Wright has shared plenty of romantic photos of herself with her new beau on Instagram, and you can see some highlights in this super sweet video!

Wright and Ramsey were co-stars back in the day on GL, and now they’re castmates once again on GH with his recent addition to the soap’s cast as Peter August. Whether the two will share many scenes together in Port Charles remains to be seen, but stay tuned to find out!
