Everything you need to know about this year's Daytime Emmys! Full
nominations announced Wednesday, March 20 on "The Talk!"
This stuff below is from the GH Fan Club email:
GHFCW 2019 - Let me start this off with a
clarification of rumors and just let you guys know where I stand with all this.
Every year the rumors start that this is our last fan club weekend. Well, I am
going to tell you just like I told the crowd last year at FCW.
This year we
are celebrating 44 years of GHFCW. We are the originals, we started this trend.
Now it has become all about something else. You will have to read between the
lines. That is just putting it plain and simple, and that is all I am going to
say about that.
We have people confusing us now with the GH Convention which
they moved to June. That cannot help us. One thing I always preach is, that is a
Convention and we are a small intimate group. I hope you guys know the
difference without me spelling that out.
There is a group that now takes the
actors except for the janitor all over the country, so that means you do not
have to travel out to LA anymore. Not only that they now use our slogan we are
GHFCW they are using GHFW which is very confusing to the fans. Our events are in
no way the same.
I have always said, I do this for the love of the show and
the fans. That is and has always been what is important to me. I have met some
incredible people along the way, actors, friends’ folks that have impacted my
life in a large way and maybe sometimes in ways I wish were different. But I
have loved every minute of it, and I love the people. The GH people, they are my
So bottom line is I am taking this one year at time now. Is this
our last year? It could be. I hope not but it could be. When we no longer sell
enough tickets to pay the cost of the events then yes, we will have to shut it
down. So that is up to the fans if we stay or if we go.
I understand you have
many choices, no longer are we the only game in town. But I hope that we have
built a loyal following that hangs in with us, not going to lie.
It is kind
of like living in a small town and you have the only Dollar Store in town and
then a Super Wal-Mart moves in. Where is the little man going to go? Probable
out of business. ABC has deep pockets for their conventions, the other group
well they have deep pockets also. Last year we gave over $10,000 to charity
after our event. So, there is no money left. We start over each year so to
speak. This year we will be raising money for a special charity and a cause
close to our hearts. More about that later.
We did this back in the day when
we had Super Soap Weekend and it went just fine. It actually gives everyone a
flavor they may like. I do and will always support anything ABC/GH does. Always!
So, there you have it. You guys come, we stay, you guys stay away we go home.
That is pretty simple I would say! Love to you all!
So now that is out of the way, lets get on to
more pleasant things like the GHFCW2019. July 25-29, 2016. Held in Glendale, CA
at the Embassy Suites Hotel.
Tickets are on sale for the Welcome Event
(always a fan favorite) on Thursday, July 25th and for the Main Cast Event on
Saturday, July 27th. You can get your order forms by going to our website
ghfanclub.com to download. I will also attach you a copy here for easy access.
We will have our full line up out shortly. It is going to be an incredible 5 day
back to back event weekend. Bringing back the Karaoke, Bingo with Wally is back
and just tons of other events. I hope you guys can try to make it. We love for
you to join us. If you have never been given us a try.
Hotel room block
should go up shortly and that sells out quickly so keep your eyes open for the

podcast, Steve Burton (Jason) hosted a lunch with Bradford Anderson
(Spinelli) and about 30 fans in a Glendale restaurant. Bradford said that they
were at an "undisclosed location in Glendale, CA." Burton laughed and then made
inappropriate remarks that many fans are calling racist. They are asking ABC to
fire Burton for his remarks, the same way they did Roseanne Barr when she
tweeted offensive remarks. So far, Burton has not apologized, nor addressed the
issue at all, and neither has ABC or GH. The remarks were edited out of the
podcast, but several fans, who were listening live,
saved a copy
of the remarks. Here is what Burton said: "And they're starting to serve the
food... You're gonna hear some ghetto clanks, there's the chicken and the
watermelon. I don't know what's going on here." Some fans thought he said "fried
chicken," making it worse.

“Baby Come to Me’ singer James Ingram has passed away at the
age of 66. It was his big hit duet with Patti Austin. If you are an old time GH
fan say like 1982, you will remember this hit song was used as the theme song
for the super couple Luke Spencer and Holly Sutton. A couple of the GH cast
posted on there twitter accounts praises for Ingram. “I remember singing his
songs during sleepovers in high school,” recalled Sonya Eddy (Epiphany) on
Twitter. And Marc Anthony Samuel (Felix) posted simply: “RIP James Ingram. Such
a beautiful voice.”

post: DONNA MESSINA Donna was a beautiful soul and to many of us she was the
heart of the GH family. She did my makeup every day for the last six years but
she was so much more than that. Donna often came to our event during fan club
weekend and I know many of you had the opportunity to meet her. As a way of
celebrating her life, a fund has been set up to benefit her three sons, Nick,
Antonio and Vito. All funds go directly towards their books and
