178 June 28th, 2016 GENERAL HOSPITAL: Is Alexis Really Pregnant?

Courtesy/ABC

“Alexis is pregnant you sonafabitch!”  Those were the choice words uttered by Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) when he met up with Julian Jerome (William deVry) at the Metro Court Hotel bar.

Sonny cannot comprehend how Julian could let his pregnant wife stand trial for the murder of Carlos Rivera (Jeffrey Vincent Parise), when Julian was the killer! However, Julian was taken completely off guard by Sonny’s declaration and hearing that Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) is pregnant.  Something he did not know!

Meanwhile, Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) has rushed home (well, not exactly …  she called Parker, and then hung out in the park with Aaron) to be with her mother who was out of jail on bail.  When she tells Alexis she can see she is overwrought, Alexis says she’ll prove she is innocent somehow, but then adds that the whole thing is making her physically sick.  Morning sickness, anyone?

And even earlier in the episode, when Sonny came to Alexis’ house and finds Julian there, and after another heated confrontation, Julian makes an exits.  That is when Alexis admits she was trying to get Julian to confess.  But she also admits to Sonny there is something she has to tell him, which leads us into the key scene at the end of the episode.   Let’s also not forget at the beginning of the airshow, Julian considered strangling Alexis while she was taking a bath.

So, is Alexis truly pregnant?  Didn’t she go through menopause in a previous storyline?  Could she and Sonny have concocted this story to out manuever Julian to confess to the murder of Carlos?  Could it be that Alexis is really going to have Julian’s baby, and there will soon be a tiny Julexis baby running around in nine months?  Would an Alexis pregnancy be reminiscent of Reva’s on Guiding Light ? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

    Is a 55 year old woman pregnant? A woman who was seen going through menopause a few years ago?

    And Who would concoct a story that a 55 year old woman is pregnant and think that someone would believe it?

    This is ridiculous whether she actually is pregnant or if it was concocted to dupe Julian.

    I had forgotten about the menopause storyline, although you can still get pregnant as long as you’re not all the way through menopause. At any rate, Nancy Lee Grahn is right around my age (59), so it would be pretty unusual, as in worthy of national news. I’m sure it’s a ruse to protect Alexis, maybe she/Sonny got the idea because Sonny spared Ava when she was pregnant with his child. I was liking this storyline until now, but I’ll wait a bit to see how it plays out before I give up on it.

    Right, Becky. Our hormones are all over the place during menopause…..those eggs are very much alive. As I keep repeating, it’s rare, but it happens.
    My problem is: given the circumstances and the fact that she could probably still conceive, why not use birth control? Again, the writers make Alexis out to be a dummy who does not know her own body. I would think that a woman, who already has adult children, would not willingly want another one. I’d love to ask that of my GG. There was birth control 50 years ago, soooo…..
    As it is/was, Julian and Alexis are such lustful lovers, they threw caution to the wind; just as they did 40 years ago. But, she was an innocent girl, then.

    Michael (not Fairman) replied

    That was my immediate reaction as well. I get that this is another “twist” and ups the stakes, but, um, no.

    Celia replied

    That is exactly what I thought, as well, MB. It may be a ploy to mollify Julian…..make him confess.
    She’s 58, in real life. I don’t know how old Alexis is supposed to be. But, even at 55, having gone through menopause ( should be over snd done with, by now……factory closed!!), I ask, huh?
    In what universe????!!!!
    When Alexis had an attack of the ‘vapors’, I just KNEW the writing was going to take her down unchartered terrain. My sister said, ” C, are they going there?”. Yup, ‘they’ went there!!!!!
    C’mon, now…….how stupid is Julian to buy this stuff??
    What else will these geniuses concoct next ? It is not interesting. Pretty soon, we’ll find out Caroline Brady is pregnant with Victor Kiriakis baby, over at DOOL.

    I did not realize Alexis was 52. I thought she was 58, as the actress.
    So……forgive me if I seem to contradict myself.

    Melissa replied

    Yeah, that was my first thought. They had a storyline a few years ago about her having hot flashes and going through menopause with the support of her friend Diane. Now everyone is supposed to believe she’s pregnant!

    Celia replied

    Yeah, well, we’re supposed to forget ‘everything’ on soaps. They twist and turn stories, plot-lines, and characters to their convenience.
    I have always maintained that sex has no age limit. Sex does not stop at any age. But, I would assume it ‘eases’ a bit? Passion is passion….especially for women….men need a little ‘nudge’ much later in life. However, all they did was have sex….this couple was consumed by sex. Where did Alexis get the stamina? A woman of a certain age….having sex so much?
    So, it is only natural for a couple to make babies when so busy between the sheets, on the couch the table, the floor…wherever…..but Alexis? No way, no how will the writers make this REAL. It is laughable. Incredulous!! No eggs!! It is sooooo difficult to conceive at that age, even if she were ovulating. Goes against the laws of nature and biology.
    I want to throw up each time Alexis says, “….this baby.” She’s too old to have a baby. Unless artificially inseminated.
    My contention has not swayed…..I do not think any of us wants to be fed ‘bull’ and treated as morons.

    Celia replied

    I misspoke. I meant to say implanted with an embryo ( petrie dish) ….not artificially inseminated. Many an ‘older’ mother, in this world of scientific progress, has carried the implanted embryo of her daughter successfully for her.

    nancy dillingham replied

    Julian would be a fool to believe this nonsense–like the rest of us.

    Dylan replied

    Um…do 58 year old women generally get pregnant? I know Rachel did on Another World….and the show was cancelled two yers later. Alexis….pregnant?? Her on screen daughter is 42!!! Can soaps PLEASE stop with the absurd bàby stories? For real! This is not Passions! And Alexis is not a 500 year old Witch with reproductive capabilities! Did soap writers their training at a Lamaze class???? Enough!!!!!! Its absurd enough that Olivia is walking Around with Julian’s sperm donation on her breast!! It would be SO nice to see age appropriate stories!

    Celia replied

    Sorry, Dylan, but Lisa LoCicero was pregnant in real life. As I have already said, her pregnancy NEEDED to be written in. Many a woman in her forties has conceived and given birth the natural way.
    Nancy Grahn, absolutely not!!!!! You are correct. The only way a woman that age would carry a baby would be through a petrie dish.

    Celia replied

    PS.
    Nancy is 58, but Alexis is 52. I think it’s ridiculous to have put this pregnancy story in motion, I agree. But, getting pregnant at 52 ( very rare) is not out of the realm of conception. It is possible. As long as a woman ovulates, there is always a possibility.
    If Nancy became enceinte? Well, that would happen somewhere else in space. And, I doubt Nancy would want to be pregnant. Lol.

    Dylan replied

    How is Alexis 52? So…..she had Sam when she knocked it with Julian when she was 10?????

    rebecca1 replied

    Dylan, Sam is 36, Alexis had her at 16. Sam, 36. Alexis, 52. Once again, a 52 year old woman can get pregnant if she is in permenopause, and didn’t go thru menopause.

    Celia replied

    I was reasoning the same way as you, Dylan; until everyone here set me ‘aright’. sam is not 40 as Kelly M, in real life…..so, it makes sense; but, marginally.

    Abruzzfan replied

    Dylan – my neighbor (also a Nancy) is 54 and just going through menopause now. It isn’t typical, but she could have gotten pregnant at 52 years old.

    rebecca1 replied

    ummm, no Dylan. Ewwwww conveys revulsion and Alexis is attractive, intelligent and I believe 52 in the show (not 60). So, as I already said, if she experienced perimenopause and not menopause, then technically (even though in this case it’s just a ploy) she could get pregnant. And we’re watching a soap where rags and riches, priests and seductuve women and cops and robbers intertwine. I think there’s more “ewwwwww” in real life when 60-year-old and older men date 20 year olds…

    Dylan replied

    Rebecca I am a very nice guy. My opinions on soaps are not up for debate simply because I knowwhat I like to wàtch and see. You defending fictional characters to me is a waste of your time.

    Harry replied

    Jaybird, yes–my sentiment exactly. Julian is not the only who has askance washing over his face upon hearing Alexis is preggers, the viewers did too.
    Alexis may be the only woman to qualify for the Marie Calenders senior citizen discount and the Gerber Bay college fund at the same time.
    And even if this is just a ploy, the very idea that Julian would be stupid enough to believe it is suspending our sense of disbelief wayyyyyyyyyyy too far.

    Might as well ask us to believe that Monica and Tracy are pregnant–LOL!

    nancy dillingham replied

    And now I suppose we viewers will be asked to believe that Alexis fakes the pregnancy test Julian is now DEMANDING she take.
    Do TPTB/writers have no shame??? How insulting to the viewers can they be?

    Celia replied

    Hello, darling Harry.
    The average age for menopause is about 50….but, it varies. Believe it or not my great grandmother gave birth at 47. I can tell you it was more embarrassing for her grown children than it was for her. LOL. It is very rare to ‘drop’ a viable egg at that age, but it does happen. It’s hit or miss.
    We do not know what the case is with Janet Jackson….she may have bern implanted. If I remember correctly she announced that she needed bed rest and cancelled her concert tour? Or, she may have conceived the natural way.
    But, for a character who has supposedly gone through menopause, the chances are zilch.

    rebecca1 replied

    Hey Harry…we ARE talking about fiction here but in terms of real life, things, people, life stages…are changing. Again, I’m not saying it’s the norm but people are living to over 100 these days. Eventually that will be more common than the exception. There are women and men who have children early in life and die young or get sick or suffer accidents. Some too unsettled in their lives to be ready for the commitment and years of responsibility. There have been studies that conclude having children in mid age might have its advantages. i admit, I laughed out loud with the unexpected ploy about Alexis being pregnant but if she is early 5os in the show and only went thru perimenopause, she could still technically get pregnant. whether a woman could carry the baby to term would be challenging, but doable.

    Celia replied

    Hey, my darling Harry.
    I wholeheartedly agree with you, believe me.
    I do not know Alexis’ backstory. I am just commenting with my opinion, limited as it is, with menopause. I may be 29, but I know what to expect. I will not be this age forever.
    I am opining according to what I read on this site.
    I said, it is possible to conceive at the age of 52 ( very, very rare; but, it could happen), even during menopause, if the egg that is ‘dropped’ happens to meet and say “hi” to one little powerful swimmer, on its way down the fallopian tube. LOL. Women who are in the midst of menopause still menstruate. Not regularly, but they do.
    I had no clue Alexis had gone through ‘the change’. HaHa!! So, that’s on the writers not on Alexis. Look at me, Harry….defending Alex! Who ‘woulda thunk??’. Double LOL.
    I am just wondering, if the pregnancy thing is a ruse, will Alexis’s test show a false positive? Is she going to draw 2 red lines on the test; or print the word ‘positive’? Ha!

    rebecca1 replied

    I agree Jaybird. It’s just that “ewwwwwwww” to me conveyed repulsion at Alexis and the thought of HER being pregnant. And Alexus is my girl!;) so I rush to protect her. I must admit though I yelped abd laughed at how ludicrous the udea was; it’s beyond funny. But then I looked it up and had she not gone through menopause…I dont remember an episode stating that, it’s technically, though rare, for womwn who have given birth at younger ages to conceive evsn in their 50s. Rare, but happens…

    Harry replied

    Rebecca, they did indeed start a story line which broached upon the subject of menopause. Alexis was having hot flashes and Diane counseled her. They did not do a follow up on this story and just left it hanging.

    Harry replied

    and yeah, Janet Jackson is having a baby at fifty and I think it’s creepy for a lot of reasons including the greater possibility of birth defects in babies of mothers having a baby after 40, as well as the fact of having a senior citizen as a parent.
    This is NOT me being an ageist, it’s about me being a realist

    Harry replied

    Rebecca nd Celian; of course it’s fiction and I certainly understand the suspension of disbelief. If I didn’t, I would not be here.
    However, I do believe in the theory of memesis–art imitates reality.
    We all know Alexis is past the age of fifty and many of us remember her going through the first stages of menopause (the hot flashes).
    Then the writers abandoned that story and hoped us viewers suffered from short term memory lost.
    Here’s the rub–I think we would all accept Alexis’s pregnancy (or the suggestion of thereof) if someone–either Alexis or Julian or ANYONE would show some kind of surprise or a dubious nature about it. If someone would JUST mention the implausibility of it even occurring I would be happy.
    And before someone mentions that this is just a soap, I will be happy to tell you that once upon a time in a land called Pine Valley a character named Ruth Martin became pregnant while in her mid forties. No one ignored the age factor–Ruth was very sensitive about it and expressed her worries and insecurities. Joe Martn was also worried about becoming a father at this late stage in the game. And finally, Erica Kane made some really snarky comments about Ruth giving birth at her age–she was horrible as only Erica could be horrible.
    Suffice to say, if someone within the confines of this fictional terrain would at least address the age issue, I think all criticism would disappear and we could be on Alexis’s side. This is a real issue for many post forty women and GH had an opportunity to address it.
    I just wish the characters involved would at least talk about it.

    rebecca1 replied

    Harry, I understand what you’re saying and agree. There should have been many discussions of surprise. Alexis should have been the first one to question whether Julian would believe it IF she had gone thru menopause. Anna could have had that discussion beforehand with Alexis as they all hatched the plot to ask her if it was still possible. Julian should have reacted with disbelief and accused Sonny of trying to trick him, telling him that it was impossible. BUT…there are many times GH falls short on normal reactions. People come back from presumed death and after a few little expressions of joy life goes back to normal. Nicolas is presumed dead and Alexis doesn’t seem to even know about it even though she’s his aunt and they’re very close. People look at dopplegangers…John McBain, Silas, Finn and do a little doubletake and then move along like it’s normal. There are SO many unrealistic human reactions/non reactions fhat you’d rhink we’d be used to it but it does smack us in the face each time with how ridiculous it is.
    So I agree and yes, it’s frustrating. But we also know writers do play with history to suit their latest tale…and I stand by my original explanation. A woman can have menopausal symptoms for years…hot flashes and skipped periods. It’s called perimenopause. So if Alexis had all the above symptoms it doesnt mean that she already went thru actual menopause and yes, could be pregnant. Even then, a surprised reaction would have been the realistic way to go. If Sam or Molly, Christina finds out about the plan, I bet they’ll be the ones to question if it’s still possible. Now breathe…:)

    Elizabeth Steinhilber replied

    The remark about Olivia being ridiculous that she’s walking around carrying Julian’s baby around or however that was worded I thought you might like to know the actress that plays Olivia truly did have a baby when Leo was born that’s why she disappeared from the show for a while and realize she was pregnant and does have a baby

    Michael (not Fairman) replied

    I hear you, Patrick. I’ve no objection to passion on a soap, but sometimes I think the current writers don’t understand that it’s not automatically the equivalent of love. Romantic love can certainly—and most often does—include a healthy dose of passion, but that’s not the sum total of what love is, at least for me, and I’ve sometimes had the impression that these writers think otherwise: “if we show Couple X making mad passionate love, constantly, they can’t keep their hands off each other, then that shows the audience how much they’re in love, and we can move on to stories of how that love is challenged.” As a viewer, it doesn’t work that way for me.

    But then, execution isn’t this HW team’s strong point, by any means. This Alexis/Julian story, for example, has some potential—there are elements that in theory make it a potentially very dramatic story, and it probably sounded terrific when it was pitched in the writers’ room and looks great on paper—but what I’ve seen of it so far has not been dramatized in a way to make me do much but furrow my brow and try to make sense of what I’m seeing on my screen.

    There’s an art—largely a lost one, I’m afraid—involved in constructing a story on the screen in such a way that the audience invests, cares, and tunes in. It’s not enough to have a good (or even a terrific) idea: you have to execute it properly. Claire Labine knew how to do it; Guza knew how to do it (I didn’t like most of the Guza years, but it was because of the stories that were chosen, not the way they were executed); Carlivati knew how to do it (but lacked, at least during his time on GH, a certain self-discipline that’s necessary to write a soap effectively). These writers don’t, based on evidence so far.

    Beautifully stated, Michael (not Fairman).

    nancy dillingham replied

    So agree with you–TG, as I recall, criticized and ridiculed Claire Labine–but she was a great writer, in my opinion. I remember her wonderful stories on Ryan’s Hope–and she TRiED to do the same on GH–but “boseman” Tony Geary shot her down–he admitted as much in interviews.

    dmr replied

    It has been a painful thread of terrible writing and storytelling! Bring back Claire Labine and Wendy Riche from the ’90′s!

Alexis is a woman completely devoid of common sense when it comes to the birds and the bees, and worse yet, if she has actually forgotten that she’s already been through menopause, well, perhaps she’s developed early-onset dementia……and no, I am not being flip about the latter. It would be the only plausible explanation for this utter mess of a storyline, which is no laughing matter!

    Considering Alexis needs something to protect her and Julian is a sucker for even the thought of his offspring…I can see her finding a way to get him to confess somehow over the “pregnancy” and turning him in and telling him to his face that she lied like he lied to her…or is that too much to hope for?

    Too farfetched for him or the viewer to accept–another prime example of the writers writing characters into a corner (Julian) and trying to “redeem” them. Distasteful to the views and lazy, unimaginative writing. Stop insulting us, please!

    It seems to me that GH has had it’s fair share of farfetched, unbelievable stories over the years. So nothing new here. And we are still watching…and at times grinding our teeth, or fast forwarding. But what I think we can agree on is Alexis should dump Julian whether he confesses or not.

    I am just checking in to say that Tyler Christopher needs to stay gone…cause I am loving Nick Stabile in the role of Nikolas Cassadine…and he has amazing chemistry with Maura West. TC has been going through the motions since the mid 2000′s….and has so many phases where he phones it in to the point of laziness….but NS has fully committed to this material and is breathing life back into this stale character. NS does not brood and sulk in every scene the way TC did….and finally Nikolas is likable and charming again. Ava and Nikolas are the best part of GH right now…and NS has a way better vibe with MW than TC had going….so please ABC and Frank don’t try so hard to lure TC back. This has been an excellent recasting…and it would hurt the story to insert TC back in right now…cause NS is doing a great job. TC really shouldn’t play hardball with GH at the moment…way too many viewers are enjoying NS in his place and want his Nikolas with Ava.

Time to throw him off the Wyndemere parapet for a new improved version!

    Shay replied

    Nor am I, CeeCeeGirl…..Tyler never did it for me, either….. I was simply able to “accept” him in the role as a princely gentleman before he became that unappealing, greasy-looking reprobate!!!! To say I don’t miss him is an understatement. Oh, and was it not a relief to see today that Alexis is indeed not the chosen vessel for a miracle pregnancy, but rather that her much-touted nausea was merely a symptom of “Julexia nervosa???” (Perfectly understandable, given that those two certainly made me queasy……)

    Celia replied

    @Shay.
    Right, Shaybelle? I don’t know what Tyler’s attraction is.
    Now, Stabile is a bird of a different feather. Call me crazy, but I can overlook Nik’s ‘indiscretions’, for some unfathomable reason, when Stabile plays him.
    I am very grateful for the death of “Julexis”….these name combinations are not my thing…LOL.
    I was not looking forward to more heavy breathing from these two every chance they got.
    I am okay with Alexis without Julian’s influence. I love this new Alexis….unexpected!!!
    Nancy has proven her mettle as an actress to me. I have waited a long time for this.
    I like her newfound mode of dress. I hope to see, well-fitting suits in court and sexy outfits, out of court; including dresses, without too much fleshy extravaganza. The PTB are going in the right direction with this story. That should tamp your queasiness?? Sorry, couldn’t resist this pun directed (indirectly) to Alexis.

    Shay replied

    I hear you, “Celia!” Those cutesy, combo-names for coupledom never appealed to me, either……they are so over-used! Sort of like Alexis….sorry, couldn’t resist that one! LOL….You see, mia amica, I don’t believe she’ll ever be my cup of tea. I’ve seen this all before, chastened, supposedly older and wiser after yet another disastrous relationship hits the proverbial fan, and predictably enough, before long Ms. Davis is once again led by her loins to the next dirty, rotten scoundrel. It has happened so many times I’ve lost count. Hence despite a fresh attempt at sporting a more modest wardrobe, I’m not so convinced that she can put-to-bed her pattern of poor choices in partners nearly so easily as abandon her too-obvious taste for tartwear . In fact, I could well imagine her becoming involved with her own half-brother, Valentin, next…..unbeknownst to her, of course. but should this most corrupted of Cassadines slip into Port Charles undetected under the guise of the benign name “Theo,” ala Jerry Jacks’ example as “Mr. Brosnan,” then yes, I could very much envisage Alexis being the romantic dupe for a venegeful Valentin…..it really could prove quite delicious when you consider the possibilities!!!! My only hope is that regardless of her next amore’, we are not treated to the relentless rutting and rolling routine that Alexis approached so vigorously with Julian……that tawdry chapter in GH annals needs to be assigned to the ash heap of Port Charles history, never to be revisited! As for the new and improved Prince Nicky???? He seems much more of a chip off the old Cassadine in this current incarnation….I would love to see him interact with Helena…..how I hope her “resurrection” is just around the corner on “Iniquity Island.”

    Celia replied

    @Shay.
    Hey, there amica mia,
    Thanks for the heads-up concerning Alexis. I truly thought she went from man to man in the past because she was obsessed with her true, unrequited love, Julian…..That she could never find ‘satisfaction’ with any other.
    I will hold out hope. Perhaps, now that she is older and wiser, her choices in men won’t be so ‘precipitous’ and she will use caution. As far as fashion….. perhaps, her tastes will not be as ‘earthy’? LOL.
    Much, much more interesting and attractive to me is your possible scenario between Valentin and Alexis. As repulsive as it would be; that’s something that will keep everyone tuning in. However, it must be written by a delicate hand; one that will do such drama justice.
    I am all for it, Shay…..however, the end result should be that by some miracle, Alexis’ mother lied about her daughter’s parentage ( THE Cassadine).
    It really would turn my stomach otherwise. Ciao, bella.

    I was a sceptic at first when they brought in Nick. But I am really liking him with Ava. And also liking the re-fresh on Ava. They have been fun to watch. As much as Tyler has brought a lot to the role of Nicholas, he was getting too brooding, and same-old, same-old over the last while.

    IDK. The writers said something about this Julexis story being far from over. Having a baby would certainly tie them together. However, I’m not a fan of re-writing history. If she went through menopause, I hope she’s just faking it to entice Julian to confess.

    IF the writer’s purpose was to get me to hate Julian then they’ve succeeded. I like William deVry, but Julian has been backed into a corner with this evilness of late and I can’t see him being redeemed any time soon or way. And with that, the writers have succeeded in getting me to dislike them as well. They’re twisting characters into pretzels. SMH.

    OMG I hope not— this has to be some plan to try to guilt Julian into confessing, but as someone has already stated either way, true or not, it is about the dumbest plot device to come down the pike in a while.

    Honestly, don’t writers know how to create honest drama nowadays, without resorting to these cheap tactics. As viewers are we supposed to be on the edge of seats wondering is she or isn’t she?

    Come on. Ron C stuff might have been silly, but he wasn’t pretending to be serious, but J and S are serious which makes this so ridiculous— either Julian will see right through the ploy so why bother with it? Or he will buy it which makes the character a ruthless mob boss a clueless idiot who doesn’t know how a woman’s body works, Or beyond all logic we have to accept she is with child— which ever outcome it is, it is an insult viewers intelligence— imho.

    Well said, Mary SF. I’ve never been a fan of the “anything goes” school of soap writing because, well, it’s only a soap so never mind what we said yesterday because odds are it will all change again tomorrow.

    I think the writers have pretty much destroyed Julian and Alexis with this story so let the story come to its natural conclusion. No superfluous pregnancy, real or fake, to try to redeem them as a couple. Just end it.

    Julian always reminds me of the parable of the poisonous snake who’s freezing to death and convinces a naïve girl to pick him up and warm him under her coat. Of course he bites her and the girl is shocked because she was so kind to him. The moral of the story: You knew what I was when you picked me up.

    Time for Alexis to throw the snake under a bus and make sure he’s run over several times. End one chapter and move on to the next.

    Stories need a beginning, middle and end even on soaps. That’s honest drama. Expecting viewers to play along with the preposterous isn’t honest. It’s always a disappointment at the “end” that makes you wonder why you even bothered.

    And can the writers make Alexis look any more foolish than she already does? I feel sorry for NLG having to play the role of the stupid, too trusting woman who turns a blind eye to the evils of her man and then acts shocked when he turns out to be everything he demonstrated himself to be.
    And now she has to utter the lines,”I’m pregnant”?

    You’re right. No matter how this spins out it’s a terrible plot device. His guilt coupled with fear of his children’s certain disapproval and wrath should be enough to conflict Julian. He doesn’t need a baby on the way on top of that. Talk about overcomplicating things.

    Either Julian buys it and looks like a clueless idiot, as you said, or he doesn’t, and then Alexis and Sonny look like total fools for thinking he would.

    I’ll wait a little longer to see where this goes, but I’m sensing I’m going to end up feeling as though the writers must think I’m an idiot or a fool, too.

    I’m beginning to think Julian is not buying it. They’ve been together a while now.
    I would assume he knows Alexis’ bodily functions at “52″. My mother is 55…. The thought of her having a baby is ridiculous, not to mention embarrassing. I’d die, even if it were possible!!
    Julian pulled out a pregnancy test kit. So, he’s not that stupid, I guess. Did he run out to the pharmacy? LOL.

    nancy dillingham replied

    Yeah, the writers think we are all idiots!

    Rose replied

    I don’t think Alexis is pregnant. I hope not. But when your back is against the wall like Alexis right now, why not play the pregnancy card? It’s farfetched, but she has nothing to lose. And there seems to be something pretty naive about Julian when it comes to “family” matters, or is it his guilty conscience, or trusting Alexis at her word…he just might buy into it and confess. My spin and some others can’t be anymore strange than what the writers are giving us already.

    Celia replied

    You’re right, Rose….as I said, Julian is a man who’s been around the block a few times…knows women and what they’re made of.
    But, even if this pregnancy stunt is a ploy, it’s still foolish and inconceivable ( pardon the pun) to contemplate and/or suggest.
    This premise should not have been entertained to begin with. I hope the great mind who thought of it realizes how foolish this idea was.

I simply don’t understand why this woman is made out to be some sort of supercharged reproductive Energizer Bunny….as if Port Charles needs any more bambinos, let alone one birthed by a soap opera Guinness Book of World Records-styled mother! A much better fate for the neurotic Ms. Davis would be for her to give up on men altogether and open a feline sanctuary, because NOTHING says “crazy female” like a houseful of cats!!!!

    I am a city kid and always dreamed of having a horse so one day my mother bought me horse back riding lessons for my birthday. I was about eight, There I was in my spanking new cowboy boots and cowboy shirt and the riding instructor took one look at me and put me not on the beautiful quarter horses mind you, but on the old black pony whose tummy almost touched the ground. When the instructor told us students to all follow her to the coral for our first lesson, my pony promptly waddled to the barn and just stood there. He would not budge despite my prodding. When the instructor didn’t see the pony and me in the coral she came looking for us. She found the pony munching hay in the barn and me crying all over my brand new cowboy shirt.
    And she yelled at me and said I was not cut out for horse back riding.

    Hey there, CeeCeeGirl! I can only imagine the stories to which you are privy on the Vineyard…particularly from those of your grandparents’ generation!!!! I’ve heard a few choice tidbits from Palm Beachers (both young and old) with their own tales to tell of that clan at their “winter homebase,” not to mention the infamous “AuBar,”….suffice to say, they were absolutely abhorrent, and the only one who garnered any sort of admiration for having a modicum of manners and breeding was the late JFK Jr. Interesting. At any rate, I’ve taken a much needed break from GH…..I simply could no longer deal with the endless parade of colorless characters and sophomoric storylines….and this one with our much-debated Alexis really takes the cake!!! When I first read of it here, I knew I would have to eventually comment because it’s totally insane, not only for the very logical and well-reasoned points you—and many others, hellooooo, Harry!—-have already referenced, but just because this woman has become the proverbial laughing stock of Port Charles…..first we had to watch her make a mountain out of her menopausal molehill for months on end by carrying around her little portable fan to cool her constant hot flashes, next we were subjected to the ridiculous notion that she was a feminists’ fantasy of the post-menses-aged sex goddess, forever the insatiable slave to the overwhelming needs of her nether regions and always ready for another round of rutting with Julian as they went at each other like two crazed monkeys on crack, and oh, NOW she’s getting a miracle waaaay-over 50 pregnancy…why, because she’s such wonderful mother material she deserves yet another child to torture with her highly-questionable lifestyle choices???? Give me a break! Despite the obvious efforts to forcefeed the “Ms. Davis as a brilliant superwoman” meme to which Alexis apologists stubbornly adhere, the truth is rather that she’s a foolish, gullible and stupendously stupid female who continues to choose the most indefensible examples of worthless lovers because she is so desperate for male attention….how empowering is that, I ask you???? Has she learned nothing in her nearly 60 years on this planet???? (Rhetorical question, apparently…..) Personally, I was hoping JulesBaby would have strangled her in her so-beloved bathtub in that den of marital iniquity those two shared….it would have been so poetic for her to meet her end at the hands of her first (and last….) thug-amore’!!!!

    I have to agree with you about the EP. He did a great job along with Ron of reviving GH, and I loved his work on OLTL. But the cast is so bloated and the storylines so fractured, the show is becoming less and less watchable.

    I hope so Frank needs to go he is like JFP he gets personal soaps are a business you can’t get personal with the actors it reflects on the quality of the show. And is it just me or does Billy Miller look miserable?

    Whenever I see the word ‘regime’, I think of combat. You know, the military. A strict, structured cult.
    I know it’s silly, Harry. But, the first time I heard the word was in my ninth grade History class. The teacher was so mean….he yelled a lot and constantly barked the word “R E G I M E”. I jumped each time he roared it because he looked straight at me. Can you blame me?
    Are you he?

    since they didnt pursue the story (which i don’t remember) the symptoms described could have been perimenopause which I mentioned several times. If the writers wanted a rationale for even suggesting/lying about the pregnancy they’d be totally credible as one can still get pregnant during that stage.

    I’m remembering the storyline has her clearly going through menopause and not just being perimenopausal. If we are to believe she is pregnant than at least the writers need to acknowledge how this would be an unusual and unexpected situation for a woman in her 50s who was thought to have been menopausal. Julian should have not just been surprised but stunned. He should insist on going with Alexis to get a doctor’s confirmation given that Alexis could have drawn an extra line on the home pregnancy test. Btw, I love how he forced her to take the test but didn’t even know what two lines meant. Alexis had to tell him!

    Dylan…I don’t know u but I have no reason to doubt that you’re nice. I’m nice too. But you’re the one that responded to my statement-question regarding the “ewwww” factor, not the other way around. Your comment was directed at my reaction. You can feel whatever u want; I simply separated fact from fiction, so to speak:. You said Alexis is 60. The actress is not and Alexis is around 52. She CAN be pregnant (even though we were all shocked and realize it’a a trick) and she, Carly, Sam,Laura, Bobbie, Olivia all have children by murderers. As for defending fictional characters, stories, etc…that’s part of what we all do-discuss here. No one has to agree but we all give our views, which is what u do too.

    Harry, I’ve actually been enjoying the stories…sigh…must be beyond challenging to keep these shows going for so long and trying to keep as many fans invested in them as possible.Just in this microcosm of Michael Fairman we are divided…imagine if this site posted EVERY viewer’s opinion!

    Rebecca, I think we’re on the same page.
    My main quibble is that Alexis and all the parties involved will not even mention the age issue as they would if this were real life. At first I harbored some hope that someone, anyone, would address the issue of late pregnancy when Julian said to Sonny upon hearing about his wife’s pregnancy,”That’s impossible!” I thought for a fleeting moment that Julian was adhering to his basic female biology 101 lessons but that thought was quickly negated with Julian having a flashback of he and Alexis having sex in the tub. He uttered,”That’s impossible!” not because he thought Alexis was post menopausal but because he didn’t remember having sex with her four weeks ago.
    Either way, both scenarios are implausible, badly written and inherently suck

    It’s not as rare as everyone here seems to think. There are tons of what they call change of life babies in my family. Women who are in the middle of going through menopause and conceive. Precisely because the hormones are going crazy, sometimes your body kicks out multiple eggs so Twins and triplets are much more common when you conceive during perimenopause. It may not be wildly common but it’s not a one-in-a-million shot either
