Vanessa Marcil's Last Tape Date on General Hospital


She tweeted this: 


June 9TH! will be my last day on set. Thank you GH for a great year. best cast and crew in the world and in my heart forever. VMG  (@VanessaMarcilG)

So, there it is. What did YOU think of the "Year of Brenda"?? Can you tell me in 5 words or less? Personally? WHY BOTHER?? Half the time was spent in "Rome" doing stupid sheeze with people OTHER than GH cast. She did get married ..was it worth it? The reception sure sucked. LOL. Now, she's leaving.
Well. Thanks for the memories.
PS.  As a Skye/Robin Christopher fan I'm more than a bit bitter. LOL 
Just think, it got GH's ratings lower than OLTLs!! Not her per se...the WRITING of her character and that's a damn shame. VMG deserved better.

HUGE WASTE OF TIME

Wasted. Rather it'd been Skye.

can someone please tell me what happened to Lucien?

I personally would much rather it be VM, but done better. The middle part of her return was good IMO. The wedding for Sonny/Brenda fans, the Jason/Brenda sparring, the Brenda/Robin connection. Since the wedding I have not witnessed any chenistry with Maurice. Robin hasn;t even been around since she brought her "real" son home. Brenda had better leave with Jax or I will be really po'd. Sonny never deserved Brenda anyway, he only deserves one woman: That selfish wench Carly.

Good-bye, good riddance! In the past you were good, now you are just annoying.

Lucien was "given back" to the orphange or the foster parents I guess. I think that's what Suzanne said.

Woah!!! That picture! When was that taken? :) Her hair looks great! So healthy! :) Her hair on GH, that is extensions isn't it? It looks so dry. Anyway that sucks that she is leaving. :( What a waste. :(

It was a bust... there I did it in 4 words. haha I loved Brenda in the past, but I feel like this time she just acted like she was too good for GH. The scenes seemed forced and out of character and like she generally didn't want to be there. Maybe it's all the plastic surgery VM's had or the fact that her forehead didn't move for the entire year she was on. Sorry, but botox can kill a performance. Just sayin'

I thought the writing was horrible for VM! ABC allowing to bump 2 soaps to have reruns of Sonny and Brenda only made it worse because thats when it was good!! To much hype when bringing her back and it was a complete flop. All she did was screem cry and whine. The best part was scenes with her and Robin. Not sad at all to see her go!

I would have preferred Skye...Would love if they would bring her back to usher out Ingo..Carly would spit nails if Jax got custody and took Joss to live happily ever after with Skye...I could get into that story...Nothing against VMG but I am quite tired of the stunt casting and only bringing characters on for a short term...it doesn't help the show in my opinion. I wish they would put more focus into using the talented cast they have. A year was wasted on Sonny and Brenda...As a fan of them..I feel cheated that we got a wedding and a couple of days of happiness before They started tearing them apart...Complete waste...

Since they didn't keep Skye, I would have preferred this:
If they knew they were going to fire Ingo..they should have had her come back to Jax, replace Joss with Jake ( although I would have preferred no child written off that way but thats another story), had Brenda's kid be with Jax, then leave. It would have tied up a lot of loose ends. We would still have Jake..there would be no character assassination of Jax, we wouldnt have been cheated as S&B fans. I really would have preferred nothing as to what we got...

Complete Waste of a year. But knowing these writers, they would have messed up any story that would have been in its place.

i wish that the writing for brenda was better but I WOULD NOT CHANGE HAVING HER BACK FOR THIS PAST YEAR FOR ANYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!

Katrine said...

Complete waste.

I have always loved VM and Brenda and Sonny and I can barely force myself to watch the show. The bottom line is that is has been BORING. A whole bunch of who cares scenarios. Boooo.

bumchickabowbow said...

A waste of her time.

The s/l was very poorly executed. I hate how they wrote for her. I will, however, miss seeing her on screen. She was my first girl crush ;)

I believe I saw or read an interview that stated that what she wanted in order to come back was to work with Maurice more and a Sonny and Brenda wedding...

I just wish she would have committed for longer... I am not happy with the way the storyline played out...also I was disappointed with how rushed the wedding and breakup are going. I feel very let down...if she comes back again I would prefer it be to stick it out until the show ends or until Maurice decides to leave so S&B can leave together.

^^She was my first girl crush, too. LOL!!

There were a few bright spots but her return as a whole was a bust. As a die hard S&B fan, I appreciate the great moments we got. But the writing for Brenda was just horrible.

THEY BROUGHT BACK WRONG VETERAN. That's my 5 words.

5 words: abso-fucking-lutely the worst thing ever.

I hope she never comes back. I know she harps about how she loves to "visit", but GMAFB. Get over S&B - they're the most boring couple on daytime right now (and that's saying something!). I hope she never returns. Every time she comes back, it makes me hate her more!

I used to love brenda and the original lois.They were dynamic and had the modeling thing going on. They had their own lives separate from their men. They also had their eyes open as to who their men were. This is ridiculous , that only now Brenda is realizing the damage Sonny's life can do. She has gone through hell with him. Now she is in denial and completely irrational. She has always known the danger and his selfishness as a person ( Carly even talks about Sonny's selfishness ). He treats Brenda like an irrational no nothing shrew, and now she has become that.
Go VM, because the writing has ruined Brenda and was meant to do so. This is GUZA. No respect for women.

If I was Genie Francis I wouldn't come back for 2 days but AMC is having their old characters come back like Dixie and now Josh Fergie's old man shoot can't remember his last name lol
