    Just read about the return of Jackie Zeman to GH again. But also read about someone from the past returning with ties to Sabrina and the Corinthos family.

    On the other side of things I just also read of yet another talk show for ABC. Madame Noire website has the story. In August ABC filmed a pilot in front of the Live with Kelly and Michael audience for a talk show starring Rev Run and his wife.

    The article does not say if this is another syndicated talk show or not. I wonder if this is a backup in case the Monique thing falls through.

    Cool news about Jackie’s return!

    Juan Santiago (Lily and Miguel’s son) is returning. Apparently, he’s Sabrina’s cousin or something. Seems like a bizarre return, but we’ll see how it all shakes out. The original actor is reprising the role. And he’s married to Rebecca Herbst, who plays Elizabeth on GH.

    Strange that Zeman hasn’t mentioned it on Twitter. Wonder if the new guy (Herbsts hubby) will hook up with Elizabeth, the slut nurse.

    According to several sites she did Tweet it. Here is supposed to be the Tweet:

    Jackie Zeman þ@JackieZeman 54s
    @carlivatiron @valentinifrank Congrats on all you are doing, especially the past week. #GH rocks. I’m excited to be coming back. Good times!

  • jonboy

    Hmmmm. I must have missed that tweet.
