O.K., so Frank Valentini (executive producer of GH) has tweeted something along the lines of: “omg you won’t believe who is showing up at the Daytime Emmys. A legendary soap couple will be reuniting (as presenters? I ask)”. So who will it be? My first thought was Genie Francis and Anthony Geary – perhaps Laura is finally returning from her doctor’s appointment! (;
But then I thought of legendary soap couples I would rather it be: Erika Slezak and Robin Strasser! (OLTL is coming back to television), Maura West and Michael Park (with an announcement that he is joining GH!), Chandler Massey and Freddie Smith (but that would hardly excite Valentini – just make my heart go a-flutter), Stuart Damon and Leslie Charleson (Alan isn’t really dead and is returning – these are my wishes, folks!), Maura West and Scott DeFreitas (Scotty D. is returning to acting and will be joining his wife on GH!)….

I immediately thought of Bo and Hope or Patch and Kayla, with both guys coming back to DAYS, but I wouldn’t expect Valentini to be tweeting about that. Maybe Sonny and Brenda? Vanessa Marcil’s new reality show is launching right after the awards telecast, so her showing up there wouldn’t be too out there. I saw a clip from the new show when I was watching Y&R on POP the other day, and it looks like fun. Donna Mills had named herself executive producer of whatever show she and the other actresses (Marcil, Lindsay Hartley, Hunter Tylo, Chrystie Pharrise, and Crystal Hunt) are putting together and taken it to the CW, without consulting anyone else. They were not happy.April 24, 2015 at 7:39 am #429016

Legandary Soap Couple?? Ron Moss and Van Hansis??April 24, 2015 at 12:50 pm #429018
In addition to this “legendary couple”, ABC Soaps In Depth is reporting that a CBS source relayed to him that a “HUGE” and “very exciting” announcement will be made during the Emmy telecast.
The twist: the news has nothing to do with CBS soaps, despite the bit coming from a CBS source.
So, what’s everyone’s take? One can only hope it’s the return of an old show…..April 24, 2015 at 12:53 pm #429019
CONFIRMED: Frank Valentini just confirmed on Twitter that Anthony Geary & Genie Francis (Luke & Laura, General Hospital) will reunite on stage at the Emmys on Sunday.April 24, 2015 at 2:07 pm #429020
I thought that was what it would be – hoping they will tell us that Laura is returning from her doctor’s appointment (;
I think it’s that Genie Francis (Laura) is returning to GH….April 24, 2015 at 3:18 pm #429021
You called it right away, Freeman, and LOL at the Laura doctor’s appointment comment. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Laura pop back into town for a bit. It’s been like a month since GH hired any big name actor, so they’re due for some news like this. Plus, the ratings have been in the toilet (along with DAYS’ ratings), so they may be throwing out a big return to get some viewers back on board.April 24, 2015 at 7:05 pm #429022
Well we have been hearing rumors that Anthony Geary wants to retire so my first thought upon hearing that rumor was the they have to reunited Luke and Laura before he leaves the show… This could be setting the stage for that, either by having them walk off into the sunset together or by having Luke die prompting Laura to return to town for her childrens sake, only to stay in town.
