Vanessa Marcil Confirms She's Leaving GH

 Vanessa and her team tweeted this photo last night

Last night, Vanessa tweeted for the first time...and had some sad things to say:

@VanessaMarcilG my final days are near will miss maurice and cast with every cell of my being. should i keep Brenda"s thigh high stilletos??

Her account is verified on her official site and I've checked, it was her tweeting... ergo, the rumors that were out there forever are true. I have to give it to Raven again for this one. 

What is she doing after? 


working on an animated childrens show that i wrote with my sister and my son. GAGOO AND THE LAND OF CHOICES :)

Also:  
now im crying too will be selling brenda stuff. all money to my charity at an event in june....can you guys come? 8 hours ago

So, there it is....Vanessa will be having a fan event at the FCW. No final airdate is set yet. It sounds like it's pretty dang soon though.
My Thoughts? I'm pretty upset that we had a year of this "comeback" that ended up being one of the worst written 'stories' on daytime. I'm miffed she and Sonny married, only to leave after a "missing son" story that went no where. Now there's a script floating around for a new chick to be coming on the show, who will probably end up being for Sonny. Or Sonny and Carly will get together for the 900 time. 
Whatever. *sigh* Sorry for the S&B fans, at least you got a wedding, right?

Carrie said...

What a waste :(

I hope she leaves with Jax.

WASTE is right. WASTE OF A YEAR!

I'm not surprised about her leaving. She was given a failed storyline that fell flat.The writing was on the wall.The best moment was the raw emotion between her and sonny at their wedding when carly revealed her secret. I hope she gets a primetime show. I used to love her in a series staring james caan ( ?vegas- he was casino manager ).
The rumor I'm wondering about is the recent kelly monaco leaving question on twitter. Also wonder if JMB will leave early as raven keeps saying.

Rita Pita said...

Just please, please for the love of the big man make Alec jax's son, so we watch them leave with some happiness. I want Jax to have something to hold onto when he leave his daughter behind.

I highly doubt Kemo will leave GH. Unless of course the new writer doesn't have his face stuck up Jasam's a$$. I'm a fan of hers, don't get me wrong, but this baby story is really awful after Jake's death.

Vanessa was the best thing to happen to GH but Guza thoroughly ruined it. The highlights, in my humble opinion, were:
1. Brenda and Sonny reunion in Rome... the magic was stronger than ever
2. hilarious Jason-Brenda chemistry... loved the love/hate!
3. Brenda and Sonny 6-day wedding... great history, great acting, best wedding on daytime ever.
4. Brenda's history with Robin, Edward and others... a link to GH's glory days in the 80's and 90's.
5. Brenda brought sexy back to GH (still best looking soap actor ever!) and she brought GH history back

Having said all that, Guza ruined her comback, although Vanessa did amazingly well with what she had.

I could see her chemistry with Maurice Benard was slow to ignite again at first. For this, I blame Maurice for holding back. He said so himself in interviews. But once the wedding kicked into gear, the two were on fire. Yet Guza never wrote hot, sexy love scenes they're so good at??!!

Most of all, I give it to Vanessa and her incredible talent. Her emotion is always, always authentic. When she cries, we cry. When she's happy, sad, scared, depressed, nervous... it's always totally palpable. I heart Vanessa Marcil!

She also said some really sweet things about Steve Burton in her tweets . . . and how she wished they had more together.

Have you heard that Becky Herbst will NOT be the one portraying Liz when the Aiden reveal happens?? I really hope that is not the case. It would suck to have those scenes with JJ and TC with no Becky?!

kdmask said...

yes, BH is not there when the reveal goes down ;/ Boooo.


AND PLEASE don't make this a FREEKIN' fight about KELLY MONACO! good god.

Anonymous said...

thanks for the confirmation about BH, Karen - I really hate that.

Seems sometimes everything ends up being about Kelly Monaco, lol. Maybe there should be a new game . . . six degrees of kelly monaco where you link everything bad (if you are a LIASON fan)and everything good (if you are a JASAM fan) that has happened or will happen at GH to KEMO! LMAO

Nicky said...

I was excited about Vanessa's return as Brenda. She was one of my favorite characters. Sadly, things weren't the best. And it's sad they rushed a Brenda/Sonny wedding after so many years only for it to end this way. Disappointing. Hopefully w/ different writing, any return of hers in the future will be better thought out and executed.

Nicky said...

I totally agree w/ whoever commented about Jason/Brenda interactions. They were always amusing and entertaining.

Mamaspat Ole said...

So that magazine with her and Jax leaving was right.....sad I watched some when she first came back and the writing sucked......I loved watching her too on Veagas.

Norissima said...

I wish Vanessa all the best for her acting career and her future.
BTW she has one of the hottest TV hunks as husband :-).

Anonymous said...

She is the most annoying character on daytime. I am glad she is going and would be thrilled if they wrote carly and sonny back together the way things should have been!

I,M SAD THAT VANESSA IS LEAVING BUT I,M HAPPY THAT SHE CAME BACK AND I GOT TO SEE MY FAVORITE COUPLE HAVE A BEAUTIFUL WEDDING THAT I LOVED SO MUCH AND I KNOW THAT VANESSA WILL COME BACK TO THE SHOW FOR WE CAN GET OUR HAPPY ENDING FOR S&B

Good riddance! No offence towards VM, but I am disappointed in her comeback. Maybe this will allow us to keep Jane Elliott.

Mrs. B said...

That is a crime about Becky not being on for the reveal. That gal can't catch a break.

I too am disappointed in VM's return so i won't feel much pain when she leaves. I thought she acted very odd the first 2 months she was on (enter octamom laugh now). I too enjoyed Brenda & Jason more than anyone else with her. Love her with Robin just to show our not so often seen history. I am also saddened that once Brenda married Sonny we have only had one Brenda Jason scene since. Bummer.

Would be nice for Ingo & VM to go off into the sunset with Alec.

bumchickabowbow said...

Well...Boo. I do hope Alec is Jax's...soapy and it would really chap Carly's buns...which I like to see.

YAY!!!

I use to love Brenda and Sonny back in the day but bringing VM back this time around was a mistake! I loved VM on Vegas and I wish her nothing but the best. I'm giving a big BOOOOOOOOO to the fact thta RH won't be playing Liz during the reveal! While I'm not a JaSam fan I do like Kelly Monaco so her maybe leaving doesn't makes since especially with the whole baby storyline they've been shoving down our throats. I know they are wrapping up storylines since the end is nearing so I guess anything is possible. {shrugs}

I waited 12 years for Sonny and Brenda to marry, and wanted to watch them live happily ever after! I can't believe we got, like, 5 mins. of marriage, all of it with craziness going on, now she's leaving! I am seriously depressed, and would go see a therapist if I wasn't one myself (I know that therapists can go to therapy, but going because of Sonny & Brenda seems screwy, unless I could find someone who TRULY can understand my pain over this).

Karen, I am thinking the unthinkable (for me)--to give up GH, and all things GH (including this blog) before she leaves, so I don't have to get my heart broken again. With Oprah gone, this will free up almost 2 hours of my day, maybe this is something that I should do.

I was a VERY big sonny/brenda fan back in the day, so when she came back I was so excited, but I honestly didn't see the passion of this couple that I saw before. It may have been the writing, I'm not sure. It just wasn't there for me. I was very anti Jax/Benda, but know I feel bad for the character of Jax and want him happy with Brenda.
Boy, they did mess up a gem, not having Brenda and Jason on together more!!

Anonymous said...

It works!!

I must admit I won't exactly miss Vanessa as this Brenda. She has been unusually skitzy, frantic, kind of manic and all the mannerisms which once made her cute and fun, like that hearty sudden laugh, have gone over the top and become annoying. I'm not sure who is responsible--Vanessa or the writers or the directors. I liked her with Jax years ago, when Jax was this blonde adonis who was fun and romantic and so charming (none of which he has been for awhile now).

I've been practically crying over losing OLTL--some other network needs to buy it and air it, taking all the actors along (well, they could drop a couple...)
I absolutely love Clint as the lovable bad guy, the villian you love to love-and-hate. I like Kelly so much--she's best with John and even gives him a personality. Natalia doesn't do anything for him.
I love Ted King and am not quite hopeful where his story seems to be going--I so wanted him to give Blair a good bit of loving, be the guy who does right by her.

I noticed that measured speaking of Dorian and now that I know of Robin's back pain, can understand it.

I haven't hated the Fords, but won't miss them at all.
Nor Aubrey nor Cutter nor Deana, etc. I'd really like to see Vimal's wife go away and Vimal come back. I find her SO artifical and annoying. Vimal, on the other hand, was cute, touching, naturally appealing.

I really don't want OLTL to race toward the end trying to right all the wrong turns, put everyone into predictable popular couples fast, etc. One reason Kelly and John worked for me was that it was unexpected and spontaneous and they seemed so natural with each other. Unliked the somewhat forced 'romance' with Natalia.

Gee, it is nice to be able to post again.

ANTJOAN!! Give up my blogg?? SOBBING

marilyn said...

I so looked forward to her return - but if she must leave - give the fans some respect and get her with Jax before she goes - so if we have to loose 2 of the best characters they are together : )

GOOD RIDDENS!!!!!!!!!

My2Cents2 said...

GOOD RIDDENS! Her performance this past year has done GH NO favors.

Anonymous said...

Sorry Brenda has to leave. Poor Sonny.
I hope he goes back to Carly. I also
hope Liz & Jason get back together.
They were a great couple.......
I don't like him with Sam. She is the one that should be leaving.....I won't miss Jax..........

Anonymous said...

Honestly I think it was kind of selfish of VM to only bring the character back for a year...especially since it seems to have cost some their jobs and others their stories...Many were put on hold... Ingo, Tyler lost their jobs..and Becky almost lost hers. It also feels selfish because S&B fans did not really get their day in the sun. They were happy for maybe a week? Brenda stole the show for the past year..quite honestly I hope her character does not return again unless she is in it for the long haul. I was a Brenda fan. In the beginning but now find her character childish and annoying. I know I shouldn't blame VM because it's not her fault, however I feel she should not have returned if she knew she was not committed to the show..how different the stories would have been had she not taken up our screens for so long? Yes it is also the higher-ups with their stunt casting and the writers fault but I can't help but feel she is partly responsible for not committing...

My2Cents2 said...

She is annoying. She talks and snorts all at the same time.
She has no talent. They brought her back at a cost, let the betters actors leave or give them back burner stories, thus GH had begun its downhill spiral.
Jax is leaving with Brenduh, however he will be back the end of summer. She won't.

Anonymous said...

How could anyone say at least she came back for a year?
She is a horrible actress. I personally don't want to ever see her again.
LOSER.

I knew VM was only planning to stay for a year, but am sad to see her go now just when the head writer is changing and there's a chance for a better story. I, too, believe she has done the best she could with the writing given to her, but I have been disappointed with the way this story has played out for the characters. I will be very sad if they have her leave with Jax. There was a time for them to be together years ago. To have her come back, marry Sonny and then leave so soon with Jax would be a terrible way for her to exit. I'd rather have Sonny believe that she was killed by Anthony Zaccahra! I'd rather she disappeared and was never found! Sonny could raise little Alec and VM would still have an opening to return at some point. It would be totally disrespectful to her character as well as the relationship with Sonny to have her leave with Jax! It would be entirely unbelieveable, in my opinion. I know Brenda was always jumpy and a little fragile, but there were some great scenes of her being tough, adventurous and very capable of standing up and going after what she wanted! I'd like to see a little more of her old self before she leaves and some good scenes with Jason too! If there's any possibility that GH will be canceled in the next year or so, I sincerely hope that they bring back VM for the finale.

I always loved S&B together but the writing this time was silly. There have been times where I have you tubed the older episodes just to remember the old S&B magic. And I get upset because the writing and the chemistry just isn't the same. When Brenda told Sonny that he put Carly above all else, I actually agreed.
This time around it was like Sonny (or Maurice) was only half there and faking it. I know that the send off is this week, and I swear I am through with GH. Maurice in his protrayal of Sonny was so disconnected (like leave already.) Total travesty. Given how long we waited for an S&B reunion, the least guza et al. could have done was given it the justice it deserved. Wish she would have left after Ted King arrived (given the alcazar/lorenzo implications) and the new writer took over.

And am I the only one who was left puzzled by Brenda being with Jason and Spinelli all the time, to all of a sudden never seeing them together at all?

overall, so disappointed.
