In and Out and In Again
PICTURE IT: This blog. One month ago. News that Rebecca Herbst was unceremoniously dumped by General Hospital made us feel all sorts of emotions--some of us were enraged, some of us were dejected, some of us were celebratory and all of us were worried about Cameron Webber's future on the show.
(I probably didn't need to recap that for you, since it went down a mere 30 days ago, but if soap operas have taught me anything, it's that viewers are wholly incapable of remembering things that happened even 24 hours earlier.)
But! She's sticking around after all. What? I know!
ABC isn't talking (yet), but Digest confirms Rebecca Herbst(Liz, GH) is staying! The fans have spoken and the show reversed its decision to write her out. Stay tuned.
YAY, for starters, but also...questions. SO many questions.
- Since when does ABC Daytime make GOOD decisions? This is startling to me.
- Was this all a publicity stunt? It couldn't have been, right? Especially since I don't think any of the...I'm trying to think of a polite way to phrase this. Especially since I don't think any of the burnout morons (that's diplomatic in a way, right?) at ABC have the skills necessary to make that happen.
- Will they actually, you know, write for her now?
- Oh em gee, are we going to have to sit through the (I'm assuming character-assassinating) story that was meant to usher her off the show, only to have the writing pull a "Hey, never mind all that, okay? Didn't happen" since she's not actually leaving?
