Here finally is Thursday’s episode of GENERAL HOSPITAL. Sorry it took me so long to get it up but my on demand service was giving me hassles when I was trying to record and I didn’t get a good rendering when I clipped it up so I had to go back and re-clip and render. So I’m going to say it again, if anything Thursday’s episode again showed why Tamara’s return is wrong. Why? All during that scene with Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) when they were introducing themselves, I was yelling at the screen, “PANIC ROOM PANIC ROOM PANIC ROOM!” I’m so tired of seeing on message boards that Laura Wright is somehow some sacred cow. When Frank Valentini knew he had Tamara, he should have done the political chess game it would have taken to bring her back as Carly. To me Tamara has seniority because she came before Wright. Wright is not playing Carly, she’s playing some other character and it’s ridiculous to even think she’s not. I’ve tried to be as conciliatory as I can to Wright’s fans, but I can’t anymore and I’m tired of having to keep “the peace” and being politically correct. There just comes a time when common sense has to prevail and logic rule. Soap operas are solidly trying to keep relevant. Part of that relevancy is unless there is a really good reason to bring a former actor back, then have a good reason for it. So far I’ve not seen any reason for Tamara to be back as this Kim. Don’t get me wrong I love the name. That is my partner’s name and I love her dearly, however, “Kim” hasn’t done anything that remotely looks promising. Or as Joel said in one of his comments here, “Loving how incredible Tamara has been in the role of Kim Nero; it’s a new role for her, being a doctor, so it’s refreshing to see her in a role such as Kim! Hoping to see her developed more as the weeks and months go on!” I mean all he has to say is that “she’s a doctor” and “it’s an incredible role”. I love my girl hence this site, but it’s been four episodes and there’s nothing awesome about this character or even a hint of where this story is going. Again having her interact with people she acted with before is only compounding the issue of using that history of Tamara as Carly especially with the reveal that Steve Burton is indeed Jason Morgan, I’m thinking of the flashback they could have used when Jason came back to Port Charles back in 2002 to compound that history between Carly, Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jason. I’m thinking of that scene where Carly sees Jason at the Penthouse and jumps into his arms. I’m also still having the feeling this character is short-term. Sarah Brown lasted for almost two years as Claudia Zacharra and from the looks of “Kim’s” squirrelly behaviour, I don’t see the character lasting long. We as Tamara’s fans who would love to see her return to being Carly, let your voice be heard. In the poll I ran here on the site 66% of the respondents said they wanted her as Carly. Most of the message boards and comment sections I’ve read want Wright gone. That should mean something. It used to.



Here is today’s media. Sorry it’s so late but lots of things happening right now and couldn’t get to it till now. Hate to have to say it but I’m still not feeling “Kim”. So much of Tamara’s isms today reminded me too much of Carly. How she took Jason/Patient6’s (Steve Burton) face, her voice, some of the clumsiness. That was all Carly. For me inc clipping all this up I’m still wondering why they brought her back at all, and by the looks of it she’s going to be “Ava Lite” in terms of a bit like Ava her DAYS OF OUR LIVES femme fatale. Like before to view the screencaps click on the gallery link at the camera. The video will be embedded. For all other videos please go to the media section.



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.



Can I say this is totally like whiplash? So once more Tamara will be returning to a former soap as another character instead of the one she made iconic? Really? As much as I want her back on television on a semi-regular or regular basis, I certainly do not want her back in a replay of what happened on DAYS OF OUR LIVES where she replaced Natalia Livingston as Taylor Walker instead of returning in 2011 in her Emmy Winning role of Ava Vitali. According to Jamey Giddons Tamara will be playing a new role. I wish I had an eyes-wide-shock emoji right now. if GENERAL HOSPITAL wants her back she should be returning as Carly Corinthos and only Carly Corinthos. Article below.

Tamara Braun in Talks to Return to General Hospital

This soap is really seeing double.

If you think two Jasons will be confusing, try two Jasons and two Carlys…at the same time! I’m hearing from multiple sources Daytime Emmy winner Tamara Braun is thisclose to inking a deal to return to ABC Daytime’s General Hospital.

Relax, Laura Wright fans. I hear Braun will be playing a new-but-pivotal role tied to the upcoming “Tale of Two Jasons” saga. Braun won’t be the first ex-Carly to return in a new role. O.G. Carly Sara Brown also played mob princess Claudia Zacchara on the soap.
