I was once a huge fan of NLG, going all the way back to her Santa Barbara days, but the more I see of her on Twitter, the less respect I have for her. Whatever John Callahan's issues, a daughter has JUST lost her father. It's BEYOND bad taste to bring this shit up.

Even worse when you consider the man is not here anymore to defend himself.

I just...what the hell is the matter with her?!

As an aside, I know John Callahan is now remembered more for his AMC role, but his Craig Hunt on Santa Barbara (pre-AMC/Edmund Grey, obviously!) smoldered. And sadly ironic is that his character was once in a triangle with Roscoe Born's Robert Barr for the affections of Kelly Capwell, and now both men are gone.  😞

I understand what you're saying, and I agree that she can be VERY OTT (even though there's a LOT I agree with her on)...but I also think she has a point here, even though she's saying it as someone who (it sounds like) is merely speaking secondhand (which DOES make it seem more tasteless than if it was a victim themselves/on something that had been reported before) . For women who have been abused, especially by men who are famous, that's all they can think of when their names are brought up. It's why I didn't blame people for being uncomfortable with all the praise that Kobe Bryant got after his death...I cannot imagine being the woman who claimed he raped her, seeing all the love and support he got, knowing how many people didn't believe her or would try to sweep that story under the rug, and make women (and it was mostly women) who brought it up feel like they were evil. I totally understand that the tragic death of both him and his daughter complicates the narrative considerably, and this is the first time that I've heard anything like that about JC, but I just...I don't know. This is something I feel so strongly about, I can't help it (and Mackenzie Phillips didn't bring up her father's abuse until eight years after his death; she just wasn't ready when he was alive). And whenever I hear people say "now is not the time" or "why didn't they say something before"...well, in some cases people DO say something before, or try to say something later on, and they are STILL criticized for bringing it up it all. It becomes a no-win situation that seems designed to silence women, even though I certainly don't think that's everyone's intention (and definitely not you personally!). So while NLG herself/what exactly she brought up raises some questions based on her past behavior, at the same time, I get the spirit of it, too. 

But I realize I've gotten this WILDLY off topic, and I don't want to cause any trouble/get in trouble/get you or anyone here that I like and respect so much mad at me, so I'll stop here. Carry on, everyone!

No, @UYI, it's fine! I get your point, too. And death does not erase questionable actions. I guess I just question NLG's timing and the manner of which she posted this. It just struck me as extremely tasteless.

But, like you, I will end this here. Everything has basically been covered.  🙂

Back to your regularly-scheduled GH press/media talk!

My difficulties with NLG is that her way is the only way. She doesn’t seem to ever admit or even consider the possibility that what she thinks may not be the truth or the only way to see a situation. I am as intelligent and educated and experienced and world traveled as she is but hold very different beliefs. I would never totally discount her beliefs but would assume that she has researched and considered the issues. I would hope and expect that she would grant me the same respect.

The story about the initial pairing of Sonny and Brenda is showing up all over my newsfeed. Apparently, it's one of the things covered in Benard's book. Here's one article about it: https://soaphub.com/general-hospital/maurice-benard-reveals-sonny-and-brendas-general-hospital-beginnings/

One quote from MB that I found interesting -- and very telling -- was this: "In the beginning I told my friend Vanessa it wasn’t working for me. She could’ve told me to go to hell, but she chose to work her ass off, because she was so determined. I was very proud of her and the rest, as they say in show business, ‘is history.'”

Am I wrong, or is he saying that Vanessa did all the work? If so, then he's unwittingly made it pretty clear that he's always been a tool.

I can’t remember it verbatim but he wrote something similar in his book about when he first worked with Laura Wright so I think he lacks a lot of self-awareness. If his ego was already that big when he first started working with VM, I can only imagine how huge it got a few years later when he became a lead. I don’t really get it. MB seems to be pretty well-liked by his costars so maybe I’m missing something with him but he’s always come off as arrogant to me.

I've always found Mo graceless in things he says about female co-stars. I was no fan of Tamara Braun's Carly, but I remember him saying when she hadn't been in the role long that "if she can give me 75 percent of Sarah, I can make it work" (emphasis mine). I thought it was shitty. She was a young actress in a difficult spot, and her leading man essentially presented her to the public as a weight he might be able to drag uphill if everything lined up just right.

He also once blind-itemed either Angel Boris or Lisa Vultaggio, depending on who you ask, in an interview, talking about how he got paired with someone who didn't work for him, and so he just played dead until he got out of it. I guess they failed to give him 75% of Vanessa.

Now that's interesting, because IIRC he actually helped save her job when she first started in 2001, as JFP was thinking of letting her go early on. Maybe I heard the story wrong, I don't know.

And of course, his defense of poor Jennifer Bransford did nothing to save her from the axe, so his power only goes so far, I guess.

Agreed, it's just interesting to see when TPTB actually make the right decision even if someone they otherwise value considerably like MB vocally disagrees with them (especially since this during was the JFP/Guza/Pratt years). 

Now, it could have easily been an ego thing for MB, a way to have a screen partner who wouldn't overshadow him in terms of either popularity and/or acting ability the way VM or SJB could (the latter in particular in both categories), but it's still interesting to me regardless of his motivation behind it.

Yep.  That was the big thing to me too.  That really struck me.  It's another instance of these what I consider to be, highly mediocre men, being protected by the powers that be.  Matt Lauer also comes to mind.  I have no problem with what NLG said.  I don't care what anyone thinks about it.  that's too bad.

That seems a reasonable way to stretch the episodes. It would be nice if the flashback episodes went back more than a year or two, but I suppose then you run into problems with paying people who are no longer on the show.

Re: the 2001 situation, there's no real conflict there. He may have backed Tamara Braun over Angel Boris, deeming her (accurately) the one with more potential, but it wouldn't stop him from publicly condescending over her greenness and positioning himself as the veteran doing the heavy lifting. 

I think Benard does like working with less experienced actors because they're apt to be deferential and he can take charge of the scenes. An example: When Chad Brannon was new, their first scene together was Zander getting a visit from Sonny in lockup. They were sitting on either side of a table. MB did an unscripted bang on the table with his hand, in combination with barking something like "Look at me when I'm talking to you!" He did it to throw Brannon off his preparation and get a genuine startle response out of him, so the scene would be more "dramatic." An established actor would probably be pissed off at something like that. 

However, I've never really known how much to credit the story about Braun only being a short-term hire. At that time, there had just been big behind-the-scenes turnover, both executive producer and head writer, and a lot of info and spec were coming out of sites like SoapZone: story predictions, hirings and firings. Some things that got posted in those days became part of enduring lore, and it's hard to know if they had ever been solid info. 

His going to bat for Jennifer Bransford is definitely true, because I remember that one being well sourced. I agree with dubbel zout that she was fatally miscast.

I've hated him since the "Karen" days and I've never forgiven him for what he said to her regarding her childhood sexual abuse--"You must have wanted it".

I was going to post about the Friday repeats, but I was beaten to it. I wish they would air actually classic episodes from the 60's, 70's, etc. Like how ABC aired classic episodes of all their soaps in the interim between The City's cancellation and Port Charles' premiere.

I still lean toward thinking it was Vultaggio. I remember him giving a specific length of time he was paired with the actress, and it was a longer period than Boris was even on the show, let alone a romantic possibility for Benard/Sonny. Angel's run from first appearance to last was a brief four months (June to October 2001). 

But, of course, it's impossible to say. He was speaking years after both women were gone.

That had to be awkward once LV married JJ and he returned to the show in 2009! If I were JJ I wouldn't like having my co-star openly (or even not so openly) bashing my wife!

I always thought the public acknowledgement was about Angel Boris—that was the Summer of Sleaze, right? Everything was awful!—but it wouldn't surprise me at all if he had problems with Lisa Vultaggio.

His treatment pattern of young women is rather troubling, IMO.

The Summer of Sleaze was in 2006--the succession of of one night stands between Lucky/Maxie (well okay, the ONSes that resulted from their affair), Ric/Sam, Jason/Liz (resulting in Jake), and Dillon/Lulu (well, that was somewhat more separate), complete with defective Enduro condoms. Angel was on the show in 2001.

Because all of sudden ELQ were manufacturing condoms and everyone was using them, forgoing name brand ones, even Jason.

If anyone can find that quote of Benard's about the actress who gave him nothing, and he was in a chemistry-free pairing with her for [seven, eight, nine] months before he finally managed to get out of it, I'd love to re-read it. It can go to the "History" thread if we need to move this over there, since I know it's not current news. Not that there is much! 

I tried a number of phrase searches myself and couldn't come up with anything. I think he said it at an appearance in the mid-aughts. So it was definitely before Claire, either Kate, etc.  

I just remember a fan actually providing the date ranges for every possible actress people thought he could mean, and the conclusion was that if the number of months he gave was correct, and he wasn't misremembering how long someone had been there (e.g., four months of Angel Boris feeling like twice that), Lisa Vultaggio was the one who fit best. That also fits with reports of the Benard/Brown/Burton clique finding her subpar and one-note when they had to work with her a lot, before she got shunted to another corner of the canvas.

LV seemingly retired from acting when she married JJ. She hasn't had a role since Hannah.

It was Angel Boris. He may well have BI’ed it about Lisa V., who he, Sarah and Steve apparently openly mocked, but he openly discussed tanking the Angel storyline at fan events in 2001-02. It was the failure of that storyline, and his and the audience’s major embrace of Tamara Braun instead (widely rumored to originally be a temp Carly to kill the character after JFP ran Sarah off the show), which heralded the swift demise of JFP’s reign with McTavish. And I was then and still am absolutely for that choice, and for Benard tanking the Angel story because it and Boris were both awful from Day 1. Was it unprofessional, perhaps, but it saved the show from Jill and Megan. A sign of other worse behaviors? Sure.

It is funny - not ha ha funny, more a sign of the boys club mentality - that Maurice apparently already had primacy over Vanessa in late ‘93, because by all accounts it was Riche and Labine who saved his job around then. I may be off on time, but IIRC the end of that summer he was just the recurring heavy in the Karen story with a magnetic presence and charisma to burn. Labine came in in mid-late August and set to using him in a bigger way, which led to S&B. Vanessa had already been reasonably in the mix for maybe a year. But he was apparently instantly throwing that weight around, even though his IRL issues led to him struggling to keep the job.

I don’t think Maurice is an evil guy. I do think he has an ego and clear preferences, and maybe worse depending on some stories of behavior (I should add I’ve never heard a Callahan/MeToo-type story about Maurice Benard, ever). It’s clear since Sarah left that he prefers romantic partners in weaker positions of power or talent. Tamara he helped mold, but when she rebelled, got her own fanbase and wanted more for the Carly character he distanced himself. He only got behind the Bransford recast bc she was wildly unpopular and therefore could be kept under his rein as no threat to him. And LW is too strong and seasoned a presence, which is why they were kept apart for a long time, but now all her story is slaved to Sonny. Anyway, IMO a lot of this is typical soap/tv actor self-protection bullshit. Tacky maybe, but much of it harmless and typical. The Vultaggio stuff or some of Sarah’s own allegations are another story.

Do we know what classics they’re showing?

Ugh. That’ll save me 40-ish minutes. Even a nurses’s ball (minus Sabrina, of course) would be better. I could even handle a Carly-centric one if it was the episode with all three of the actresses.

Yes, and other actors build that up or are made to feel they need to be "good enough" to work with him. I remember an article about young Steve Burton's adoration because he thought Maurice was such a terrific actor and wanted to learn from him. As has been noted, he told young Vanessa Marcil "you suck" (or close to that) and that she had to get better as a scene partner. He has laughed about it/not denied that he said something to her about being a poor actress.  Maybe Burton has also learned about laziness from Benard? When he came back to GH while BM was playing Jason, he seemed to me to light up or at least be authentic and appear energized only in scenes with Kim McC and Becky Herbst.

Everyone hated that story, though. Everyone. If it wasn’t gonna go then it would go later and do worse damage before it was through. Benard wasn’t the first or last daytime star to tank bad or good story. I shed no tears for Boris losing her job.

That’s been Steve’s behavior since about 2003 - Kimberly, Becky, maybe Bradford Anderson or he’s already mentally back on the ranch. He’s far lazier than Mo IMO, who often tries and more often fails as a performer now bc he’s tired, overexposed and pushed past what he can now competently do. Only really good material makes him good now. Whereas Steve just doesn’t give a shit and hasn’t for years.

This has always been the case. No matter how shitty the writing (which, let's be honest, is the norm), but after Jason and Robin "made up" meaning, after her return in 2005, when Robin wasn't the Devil INCARNATE for having told AJ the truth, Steve always lit up and was more engaged in scenes with Kimberly. I swear, you could see his eyes just get more brighter.

This has always been the case. No matter how shitty the writing (which, let's be honest, is the norm), but after Jason and Robin "made up" meaning, after her return in 2005, when Robin wasn't the Devil INCARNATE for having told AJ the truth, Steve always lit up and was more engaged in scenes with Kimberly. I swear, you could see his eyes just get more brighter.

You just reminded me of how much I loved the progression of JnR after the AJ debacle. Like, it’s still surreal to me that we got an apology like not just, “Sorry.” But “YOU WERE RIGHT, SHOULDNT HAVE DONE THAT.” Still blows my mind. Who kidnapped the writers that day, I need to know, send them flowers and shit.

I was going to post about the Friday repeats, but I was beaten to it. I wish they would air actually classic episodes from the 60's, 70's, etc. Like how ABC aired classic episodes of all their soaps in the interim between The City's cancellation and Port Charles' premiere.

This is why I miss SoapNet. They used to do marathons of real classics, like when Alan tried to kill Monica and Rick or when Tracy withheld Edward’s heart attack pills while he lay on the floor begging. If ABC would show episodes like that, I’d be happy with having Flasback Fridays forever.
