Still no confirmation of Tamara’s return to GENERAL HOSPITAL. The latest edition of ABC Soaps in Depth carries an article other online publications have been stating of her “imminent” return, though there is still no confirmation from either Tamara or the show. Speculation is that she’s playing a brand new character…. That’ll remain to be seen. I’m only going to give an educated guess here and say Tamara won’t be returning to the show as another character, rather, as Carly. I don’t know about anyone else but I’m so sick and tired of known actors returning to soap operas as characters other than the ones they originated. I’ll cite Tamara’s 2011 return to DAYS OF OUR LIVES not in her Emmy Award Winning role of Ava Vitali but as Taylor Walker and how much of a fiasco that was. I still cannot watch DOOL and see Josh Taylor as Roman Brady without thinking of him as Chris Kositchek. GENERAL HOSPITAL has currently seen the return of long-time fan favourite Steve Burton who played stone cold Jason Morgan for twenty one years before leaving, then showing up on The Young & The Restless as Dylan McAvoy. Burton left last year and returned to his former role. However, that role is currently being occupied by actor Billy Miller. Burton has said he’s signed a three-year deal. Now we begin the whole “Story of Two Jasons”. Could we possibly be seeing the “Tale of Two Carlys”? There’s been next to nothing said by any of the soap-based media since the original report in September. Either one of two things is happening, 1) the report from Daytime Dirty Laundry was fake, or 2) Current Carly protrayer Laura Wright is leaving and Tamara is coming back, but they don’t want the news out quite so soon. I have the scan of the article uploaded to the gallery and the text added to the press section. To go each section please click on the links below.



As promised, I have a couple of press additions for you. the first is an article Tamara did back in April 2012 from Soap Opera Digest where she discusses her magical time with preparing for her play Tennessee In The Summer, plus her meeting President and Michelle Obama at the White House, her attending the Kennedy Center Honors and the Grammys. She also talks with pride about her grandfather. The other article is from ABC Soaps In Depth from this past July where she talks solely about her role in the play. Enjoy.

To Come: Tamara’s screencaps from her DAYS work as Taylor Walker.



Some new press additions for you. I have the latest edition of ABC SOAPS IN DEPTH where GH executive producer, Jill Farren Phelps, denies Tamara is returning to GH. Yeah Jill, be more convincing. I also have two other things that have been backlogged. I still have a ton of stuff to get up in the press section and the scans in the gallery but…. Enjoy. As usual, links in the articles lead to the actual scans in the gallery. However, if you want to see the actual scans, I’ll include the links there in post. Also, I’m currently working on getting July’s DOOL‘s screencaps and clips done and added to the site. Stay tuned.

Well, not sure what to think but according to internet buzz, Tamara is on her way back to GENERAL HOSPITAL….or not! According to a posting on ABC SOAPS IN DEPTH website it was a done deal. Now the post is gone and they’ve issued a retraction. Not sure what is going on but someone is up to some cyber hijinx. My hope? It’s true. I’d kill to see Tamara back as Carly.

UPDATE: Braun Not Headed Back To GH

UPDATE: According to a GH spokesperson, this is a false rumor and Braun is not headed back to GENERAL HOSPITAL.

Tamara Braun (ex-Reese, ALL MY CHILDREN; ex-Carly, GENERAL HOSPITAL) will be exiting DAYS OF OUR LIVES as Taylor in the coming months, and the Emmy winner already has her next gig lined up: multiple sources confirm to Soaps In Depth that she’s returning to GH!

Rest assured, Laura Wright fans. We hear that Carly’s current portrayer is in no danger of being replaced by her predecessor. Rather, Braun will be playing a new character when she returns to Port Charles this fall!

Of course, this won’t be the first past Carly to come back in the form of a new character. Sarah Joy Brown, who originated the role in 1996 before Braun took over in 2001, stepped into the stilettos of Claudia Zacchara in 2008. And Braun already has experience in playing a different character on a soap she’s already called home: Prior to her current DAYS gig, the actress played Ava for 6 months in 2008, even winning a Supporting Actress Emmy for her performance!

Further updates will be made to this post should things change….and we know things change.



I’ve scanned and added two additions to the press section. Both have been typed up and added to the press section and the scans can be found linked on the page to the gallery. The one article concerns the recast of Taylor, the other is a letter from an AMC viewer who is very disgruntled with the way the Reese and Bianca storyline is ending on the show. I can’t say that I disagree with anything that was said. I’m going to provide the links to the new additions, but I wanted to hilight the letter by Quin Hodge in Oxford, Miss. Here it is in its entirety:

Trying to make All My Children‘s Reese the enemy or bad guy, like she doesn’t care about Bianca or their marriage anymore, is one of the most insulting things the show could do. It is repeating the same pattern that Bianca’s relationships have followed too many times before. Someone always leaves her, and the relationship ends in a devastating way. We still remember how much Reese loves Bianca and how she would give up anything for her and the kids. She would never give up on Bianca’s love or their her family with Bianca! And, furthermore, to have all this happen through off-screen conversations and phone calls is really just a slap in the face. There is no logical reason for AMC to do that. Instead, just recast Reese. There is still time to undo this damage, and not ruin the only gay marriage in daytime TV, and show that AMC and ABC actually care about gay representation. Bring Bianca’s wife back to her and their family.

Quin Hodge, Oxford, Miss

I think the way both Reese and Bianca plus Tamara and Eden have been treated has been deplorable. The fact that Tamara and Eden were promised one storyline, but got another shows the reasons why they didn’t want to reup for more when ALL MY CHILDREN relocated to Los Angeles. Then Brian Frons, Julie Hannan Carruthers and the current writing staff at AMC wonder why Tamara has re-signed with DAYS and Eden signed with THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS. Can we blame them?
