114 February 3rd, 2016 GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nikolas and Hayden Say Their “I Do’s” In Super “Quickie” Vegas Wedding, And Then Someone Calls Out Hayden By A Different Name!

Courtsy/ABC

On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) and Hayden (Rebecca Budig) had their very “quickie’ Las Vegas wedding, which included Nikolas requesting Hayden sign a pre-nup before the duo said their “I do’s”.

And its not a bad deal for Hayden – Nikolas told her she would get $5 million dollars in the divorce settlement. When it came down to their alloted 2 minute ceremony, Nikolas asked the chapel officiating court jester and “king” for five more minutes for $500 dollars. But what was most heartwarming and touching was Nikolas’ speech that he prepared to say to Hayden, which fit perfectly with the couple’s shenanigans, double-crosses, and general mistrust of one another, no matter what they say.

Nikolas began saying what he was going to recite:  “It’s an old Irish blessing.”   Because he is a Cassadine of Greek descent, Hayden responded, “Not Greek?”  To which Nikolas replied:  “Trust me, this suits us better.”  Nikolas says the vows:  “When we steal, may we only steal moments together.  When we cheat, may be cheat all misfortunes.  When we lie, may it only be in each other’s arms.”  Hayden is blown away and realizes she has nothing to recite back.  After exchaning rings, very quickly the couple are married.

After it’s official, and as Hayden is leaving the chapel as Mrs. Nikolas Cassadine in the very last second of the episode, a man appears and calls out to Hayden and says, “Rachel?”

So, will we finally begin to find out who Hayden truly is?  What did you think of the performance of Tyler Christopher during the wedding and the reciting of those oh-so-perfect wows?  Is Hayden still going to double-cross Nikolas … or vice versa?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

    We agree! Tyler Christopher and Rebecca Budig have real chemistry. Aside from Robert and Anna, they are the most interesting couple in PC.

    ICAM, have always liked Hayden and her spark and she’s good for Nik who has always been rather reserved except when he’s near Hayden. Mama Laura…..get over yourself and remember how you and Luke started!! Have always been a fan of RB!! She’s one of the best in soaps!!

    nancy dillingham replied

    This couple is DEFINITELY not a Laura and Luke–nor does their storyline have the cachet of the Laura and Luke love story–pre-Fluke–and pre Tony Geary’s egocentric rants about Luke and Laura. Still a head scratcher to me!
    PS Has anyone heard anything about TG lately?

    Good premise, Evan. I am dory of a newbie….was Emily married to Nik? Hmmmmm. Sleeping with her dead sister’s husband? How original, right? Ewwww. Leave it to a soap!!

    Sort of

    Jonboy replied

    Gee,thanks for the spoiler.

    Tristan replied

    That isn’t true. There is no word that Hayden is Emily’s sister. Ignore.

    CeeCee replied

    You’re not funny. I really did not know if Emily was married to Nik when I posted. Now I do. The same premise still applies. So, don’t be a wise-arse, Jonboy and stop patronizing me. You are getting way too familiar with me for comfort. Very offensive. I sort of passed over it about the ‘hooker boots’ ….no more. Sam (Kelly) is not a hooker and neither am I. Get it?

    jonboy replied

    Okay Ms. Sensitive. It’s just an expression. There’s another name for them, too, but we won’t go there.

    Harry 1 replied

    Cee Cee, I am pretty sure Jonboy was kidding about the spoiler.
    It’s something I would have said. For instance, when people talk about Rosebud being the name of Charles Foster Kane’s sled, I like to call them spoiler bastard people.
    But of course I am kidding as I am sure JonBoy is.

    jonboy replied

    Thank you Harry. People are too darned serious anymore,

    CeeCee replied

    I asked my husband what the other name was, Jonboy. FM Boots. Yes?
    I guess I am sensitive. So, sorry. It’s just that I never know when you’re teasing. You are very hard to read with your one-liners. Very cryptic. I can read just about every other guy on these boards except you. So, I thought you were throwing jabs. Peace.

    Jonboy replied

    Actually it’s Throw Me Down and FM. And CeeCee, nothing you ever have read or ever will read from me is meant with hatred or vicious ness. Of course there’s Peace. I’m not going to dislike any person over a silly TV show.

    CeeCee replied

    Could Hayden possibly be this Susan, Paul was talking about, today? His daughter?

    GH has been on fire the last two weeks. This was another good episode with solid movement in the storylines. Jean and Shelly are getting the job done and the ratings surge since November back up that point.

    I am still loving the cat/mouse game with Hayden and Nikolas. The overall suspense of this twisted relationship and Rachel’s true identity is entertaining television. So many questions remain if their feelings are real or not or if she will bury him or not or if he knows what she’s up to or not. The Quartermaine’s getting back their company and the Cassadine fortune all rest on Hayden’s decision to screw over Nikolas or not via Tracy’s blackmail. Loved the little cliffhanger with some man calling out for Rachel and enjoyed the scenes with Hayden/Nikolas due to the hot chemistry between RB and TC.

    Loved the sly witty banter between Tracy and Laura. Enjoy seeing Scott drop up to inform Laura about Helena’s will reading. Can’t wait for that episode.

    I really like Nina and Franco together but it seems like they are putting distance between them on certain subjects which is a bad sign for their future. I hate the idea of Franco picking up the peices for Liz/Jake once Jason goes back to Sam but that’s where I see this headed. MS and RH have great chemistry and their characters make sense together so it’d be a mistake to break them up.

    Sonny and Ava are so much fun to watch together when they are fighting about Avery. They really make great enemies and giving them a child together was a smart move for the sake of entertainment.

    Reply

    Timmm replied

    I agree Jean and Shelly for the most part have done well.

    The problem I see is if Nick loses ELQ, so what! If he has five million dollars to shell out to Hayden, the Cassadines are still loaded with other financial fortunes!

    I was disappointed that Nina interrupted some father and son time with Franco and Scotty. Those two are great together!

    Cannot stand Ava but like you said giving those two a child to fight over has given us some really good drama!

    Reply

    Patrick replied

    Nina burgeoning sexual appetite was not enough

    I was so looking forward to father and son time…. when Scotty commented that he was taken with his son, Franco, expressing concern for a child, at his workplace

    was touching…

    CeeCee replied

    You’re right, Timmm. It is perplexing to me how Sonny and Ava throw punches at each other when they are both guilty of the same thing. One parent is no better then the other. I am sure both love that sweet, smart and alert baby, but, neither is fit to be a parent. It takes a lot more than love to rear a child; to instill ideals and goals not only verbally, but by example.
    I also love Scotty and Franco as father and son. I like their give and take, sort of affection.
    I mostly appreciated the fact that he knew he had to give the floor to Nina. Very sensitive of Scotty.
    I am somewhat disappointed in Franco for not being in tune with Nina’s needs, albeit I understand…..he’s a guy. Some women are not fulfilled unless they are blessed with a child. Obviously, Nina seems to be one of these women. I think Franco is presenting all these negative possibilities to Nina as an excuse and an escape. He has fears….question is: does he fear a future with Nina is iffy; or does he fear some other person , in the form of a baby, takes over the important part of Nina’s life? He’s jealous. Men!! Big babies.
    Poor Nina. I don’t like where this is going…muddy waters. Later, babe.

    Marie replied

    Little Avery. Love how vocal that little baby is. Cutest little outbursts at the most perfect moments. The casting agents found an actress in the making.

    Robyn replied

    ICAM!! I love Hayden and Nik!! But I would like Hayden to interact more with the rest of PC. In true mama bear style Laura is blind to her son’s murderous act and blames Hayden (his target) for all of Poor Nik’s sins!! I’m also intrigued to see what the future might hold for Curtis and possibly Hayden he didn’t seem real eager to be done with her once she paid him. Anyway I too enjoy seeing more of PC than just Jason, Sam, Sonny and Liz!!
    Hoping Hayden is somehow a Q….they need to build this family back up to be stronger as the Mob clan Corrinthos should not be the leading family on GH and Sonny has offspring everywhere!!

    Patrick replied

    ie: Laura (mamma bear style)

    if this is so…. ???

    then turn Laura… that’s all it takes…. take no prisoners… LIVE with no conscience.. POWER up the Cassadine reign… and command at the helm of ELQ with Nicholas

    she’s going to start boring me… quickly if she’s next to godliness and her moral fiber starts to stink….

    LIVE Laura !

    Patrick replied

    Traci has the time of her life !

    when Genie Francis was on Y&R as Genevieve… we saw traces of liveliness and daring… a fortuitousness…

    it was like watching Genie Francis come alive !

    alright already… a moral compass and center of any show… “must” have… a synergy of which to ascribe

    why should Laura have to threshold a steady steer of self righteousness

    go to the floating rib and haunted STAR…. have a drink
    go to the docks /waterfront and lose your furtive glances; steal abandon for awhile

    Laura had better be careful… she’ll get worse than Alexis

    I like Nick and Hayden together but this quickie marriage is stupid! This guy is royalty. Who does this for someone he may “Love” but really doesnt even know? [Redundant] And Hayden, its a win win, she makes Tracy happy and she gets FIVE million dollars! Who wouldnt do that? You know the marriage isnt going to last. BUT will the firecracker get her $? NO. Nick is filthy rich, 5 is a drop in the bucket for him but he will hold the Rachel identity over her head and she will not get a red cent! THEN, she will be broke and thrown out of the castle and have to start over and her character will be redeemed! Whew! Oh, another prediction, after this plays out, by summertime we will see Spenser back from school and he will bring Brita back to his daddy! You watch!

    Not was it just stupid but way over campy…..wish they had a more down to earth wedding but with Nik knowing she was using him and at at the alter humiliates her and dumps her…she passes out…all thinks its an act…but she is pregnant…she was originally planning to take Nik for millions and to get her hands on ELQ for whoever she is really working for but in the process had fallen in love with him…and i do hope Spenser brings Brit back!!!

    did she fake the passing out… to distract Nicholas from someone calling her Rachel?

    hey Timmm..
    Actually it is realistic..
    A great many have a Vegas wedding, quick and cheap ahaa!
    Not everyone has the big flash weddings..
    And it they needed to get married like yesterday to keep ELQ ..
    Anyways, I don’t believe the wedding is legal unless Hayden has a legal name change..

    And GH can’t waste money on a wedding, they need to pay Tristan!! lol

    Word is that ABC is dumping a lot of money into Julex’s wedding.

    And yet, it sounds as though they are pulling out all the stops for Alexis and Julian’s matrimonial “church” farce! If any couple deserves a cheap, tacky Vegas wedding, it would be this totally mismatched pair!

    Patrick replied

    OMG ! word on the street… they are bilking us… with a cache of a wedding

    pulling out all the stops…. for… ALEXIS !?!?

    NO

    I ask any one…. how can GH or these two actors remain interesting and continue to TRY TO make these two interesting for the duration?

    I just do not see IT

    with Julian, of course
    Alexis ?

    they are wasting budget; their is no longevity for this dismal coupling

    Harry 1 replied

    Ha! Shay, you are a wise acre.
    I am just looking forward to seeing Julian wear a shirt that isn’t a turtleneck.

    Shay replied

    @Harry1….Takes one to know one!!!! Haha….Seems we’re just two crazy turtleneck-obsessed individuals, difference being that you want to permanently strip Julian of his, whilst I cannot wait to place one on Alexis…by force, if necessary!

    CeeCee replied

    You’re right, su. Vegas quickie weddings are not as rare as one would think. Frankly that’s what Alexis and Julian should do. What a farce. Do you think Sonny and Company will be in attendance? Ha!

    CeeCee replied

    Look at it this way, Timmm. Everyone always complain that storylines don’t move fast enough. Well, this one rid. They’re married. Now what? When will Hayden pull the rug from under him? I am becoming bored, even with their VERY realistic, sexy love scenes. What more can they do?
    And su? You may be on to something. Maybe the marriage is not legal because Hayden is already married. And, Michael Easton is her husband.

    Why? I don’t get it! If this were my 100th jumping the broom; I’d want to keep it as inconspicuous and simple as possible. What the heck are these producers thinking? I mean, is anyone really excited in this fallacy?
    We went all out…But, gee, it was our first and only and I was 21. Who does that at that age?

    Timmm replied

    CeeCee, what a great point, no yim yamming around, to the chapel and lets move this story forward! Yeah, I was disappointed in their “Honeymoon” sex scene. The electricity wasnt there. Maybe that dude who called her Rachel threw her off? But anyway, to bad Jason’s story doesnt pick up speed like Nick’s wedding! Sam having that illusion that Jason was in the basement was horrible. Billy Miller looked bored out of his mind! Bye love.

    CeeCee replied

    Hey, Timmm.
    I always write in a hurry….mostly, I don’t check back. My comment below sounds out of place. The fallacy I am referring to is Alexis’ and Julian’s nuptials. From what I understand, it is supposed to be this grand affair. I could understand this wedding, which has been anticipated for so long, and took 40 years in the making, brought joy and excitement to an otherwise DULL storyline; then, yeah….I suppose this couple has its following. For once, as I said elsewhere, I’d rather see a young couple finally get its due….such as Maxie and Nathan; Brad and Lucas, even. Instead, we have breakups for the younger crowd., such as Lulu and Dante. Yes, by all means, let Alexis and Julian have their much-awaited-for life together, but, make it subdued…no frills and jujus; no fanfare. Ugh!! Luv-ya, Timmmy.

    Timmm replied

    I know we bounce around here and there but somehow we manage to get to the gist of things. I dont mind Julian and Alexis. They were interviewed somewhere else recently and they were so happy with their characters and their storyline. They are friends. Neither are married and flirt but seem more like they have a brother and sister thing going on. They love the new writers and cannot wait for their big TV wedding! They said it will be grand for todays daytime budgets but there will be drama. After all, they said its sweeps! Oh by the way honey, you had mentioned maybe having a younger couple like Nathan and Maxie marry and have a grand wedding. I heard they considered that BUT decided to save that portion of their budget to throw a BIG party off screen for Ryan Paevey when he graduates from acting school. BA-DAH!!! Thank you, thank you very much!

    CeeCee replied

    @Timmm.
    HaHa…you funny guy, you!!!!
    I enjoyed your post, by the way.
    Well, now…gorgeous Nathan has some competition. I am dire threat ladies here checked out the new doc!!!!! Watch out all you single ladies! And, gents!! Byeeee.
    Oh, Alexis and Julian brother and sister? I would never kiss either of my brothers like that! Ha.

    Shay replied

    @CeeCee……”No frills and jujus”…..LOL!!!! I hear you, and I’m with you….it would be quite one thing for a legendary couple on par with Luke and Laura or Robert and Anna to be accorded a “showstopper wedding,” since viewers have waited for years for both of these pairs to reunite, and thus, would be a true cause for celebration. The same could have been said for the recent remarriage of Patrick and Robin…..they certainly deserved the honor for their beloved “Scrubs” duo to receive a big send-off instead of that last minute, bargain basement affair for which they had to settle! Therefore, it is a bit of an insult—not to mention a real puzzlement—to blow the bank on such a banal set of characters. Quite frankly, the only audience segment I could imagine getting any kind of satisfaction from such a stunt would be grannies deriving a vicarious thrill from Alexis finally permanently landing her boytoy after all those repeated unleashings of her inner cougar….a bit old hat by now, to be sure! Given their excessive activities, I cannot even begin to think what new and exciting options could be left for their honeymoon at this late date! As for Maxie and Nathan having a big nuptial do? Now THAT I could envision, what with Ms. Jones’ background in event planning….’twould be the wedding to end all weddings….and how awesome of a “Mother of the Groom” would Liesl be? (And would Maddie try to break out of jail so she could crash the festivities and try to steal her sister’s thunder????) Lastly, I just know Dr. O. would insist upon serenading the happy couple…would it be the traditional old chestnut, “Oh, Promise Me,” or maybe something more contemporary? See? This matrimonial shindig would provide endless entertaining possibilities!

    Rebecca1 replied

    Once again the subject of Alexis and her age comes up in a post having nothing to do with her.

    I can’t wait for the wedding…of Alexis and Julian. Age has nothing to do with whether you have or want a big wedding…if it’s your first or third. It s a personal choice.

    Other than a handful of redundant posters who continuously pass judgment on what a woman should wear, how she should love, feel, behave…there are many people who are a tad more adult in their view of human beings and a lot less judgmental. Once again, love, sex, passion, goals, desires and everything else is not restricted to age.Other than the biological clock that truly does tick in terms of the ability to carry a baby…a grand wedding any age is just that.

    LOVE that Alexis is going to have the wedding she desires. As always with soap couples there’s no guarantee how long their union will last…but I’m rooting for them. They went from their initial attraction and immediate draw to each other after realizing their blast from the past… to bonding over Sam and Danny’s illnes; went through infatuatiion…yes…ageists…infatuation and lust can happen at any age…to a more settled, domestic relationship.

    Love can happen the second, third and infinite time around if you’re lucky enough to find it. And so nice have their children celebrate in their happiness…Inspires hope and testimony to live life to its fullest and with as much vitality as you can while you can…

    Soaps are all about makeups and breakups…endings and beginnings…first marriages like Dante and Lulu splitting (though I would have liked to have seen them work on getting their trust back before signing the papers), couples reuniting or finding new love. Alexis…As for budget…the money for a wedding should only be spent on a younger couple? Robin and Patrick already had their big event…so did Patrick and Sabrina…though obviously cut short. Luke and Laura, Sonny and Brenda…there hasn’t been too many festivities of any sort due to budget. But I have no doubt when Maxi gets married it’ll be a grand event…as it should be. Doesn’t mean Alexis’ shouldn’t. And by the way I doubt there will be many at A&J’s wedding as their arent many guests to invite other than family…so even though Alexis and a great wedding would be fantastic…i’m sure it will be a family oriented event. Nothing but elegant but small. Not, as a certain poster keeps referring to Julian in regard to Alexis as a ‘boytoy”…but an event between two ADULT people in love…regardless of which of them is older than the other. By the way, for posters who are so youth oriented…the notion that the woman shouldn’t be older than the man is a tad….backward thinking. A tad old-fashioned…Must be tiring living with such a stringent set of rules.

    As for Nicolas and Hayden? I haven’t liked one second of her airtime. Just don’t not into her character…much preferred him with Britt. The wedding was ridiculous…unless the old, evil Franco popped up from behind the scenes during James Franco’s portrayal…or Helene chose this time to be born again. Other than that the “camp” vibe didn’t work for me.

    Hoping this character gets more interestisng…Where’s Spencer! Miss him!

    CeeCee replied

    Good Lord. Enough with the preaching about Alexis and her age. preaching ain’t gonna change the fact that she’s hitting 60. My great auntie just got married for the second time. She’s 63….very private ceremony with only a few family member. It’s a SOAP, for goodness sakes. Give it up. Geesh!! Who cares.????!!!!!! And, who reads such long, drawn-out essay-like whatchamacallit on the same subject.? I am sick to death. Alexis this, Alexis that. Change the subject. WOW. BORING!!

    rebecca1 replied

    No CeeCee.. enough from you! Four out of five posts by you mention age. How do you defend your “wrinkled” comment about Nancy Grahan’s anatomy?

    And news flash…other than a handful of posters who cares what your “gran” aunt, parents or any of your relatives do…you and your family are not the moral compass…I’m so sick of hearing about your husband, travels, kids, your fluency in other languages, expertise in language and literature…this is a SOAP site! Take your judgment and your need for affirmation elsewhere if you can’t stay on topic and repeatedly insult characters…who play close to their own age..who are older than you. You sit there and lecture people and proclaim your right to be heard…then jump down others throats who you feel offended you.

    I’ve read your attacks to AJQ, jonboy, myself and several others. Cut it out. You want to be the darling of this site? Play nice with others and not just the handful you’ve befriended.

    Just as we shouldnt be criticizing others religion, race or sexual orientation…same goes for actors looks and age. There are those of us nearer to Alexis’ age than your age. And you STILL cant figure out that comments liked wrinkled and too old are offensive and naive.

    You want a reference to age? Grow up.

    rebecca1 replied

    Oh. Two more points CeeCee.

    Who cares that your 63 year old aunt got married in a small, private ceremony with a few family members? This is a prime example of what I’m talking about! Do you honestly think because that’s what your aunt did that all women of a certain age should restrict themselves to that because…why? It’s not age appropriate to have a bigger, elaborate wedding?

    As for long posts? You have written pages of redundant non-soap related soliloquys. You and your rhree or four buds use this platform to exchange messages that have nothing to do with GH.

    At least break up the monotony into paragraphs.

    maddiehayes replied

    ITA, a wedding is only interesting if it’s with a couple we’ve been LONGING to see get married. How many people have been waiting for Nick&Hayden? Are they really that popular? Really?! Well, I FF them. I love Nathan&Maxie, but even they are boring if we don’t get to SEE their relationship move forward and grow. Everything happens offscreen, they have no storyline. I get the feeling the show just isn’t that invested in them, and that’s a shame. They had an adorable love story (emphasis on the “had”). Evidently they’re gonna move in together, but still no engagement ring. What’s he waiting for?! Takes all the romance out of it.

    CeeCee replied

    @Rebecca1.
    No sweetheart, I do not attack . You do. I defend myself. Don’t bring others into it to boost your lost, dull-world cause. Let’s not forget how you treated su0000 (now, suddenly you treat her like your best friend). Let’s not even mention the insults upon Shay’s, Timmm’s , even Harry’s head which you have infilicted with your dowager-style condescendence. Jonboy thought he was being cute…..he implied that Kelly Monaco and I wore boots that only hookers wear. But, as yourself, it is ok to insult posters but not characters? I did not appreciate that inference. Since you so defende Alexis;, you think Miss Monaco liked that comparisons? I told him neither she, nor I were hookers. But, of course, as is your wont, you take things out of context and twist them. That’s your MO, oh sainted one!
    Do not give me grammar lessons. I always break for paragraphs. Who do you think you are? Just because there is no space between paragraph, does not mean it is not a new paragraph. Tell it to the number one University in the US to change its curriculum because you said so. You, who copies my writing style and phraseology. By the by, did you know about subject agreement?
    You live vicariously through a fictitious character, Rebecca. AJQ has the habit of demeaning my comments. He does this to other posters, as well….and, he has been called on it by more than one person. As yourself, he preaches. It’s his and your word and no one else’s. However, it is none of your business.
    You are a very envious woman, it seems. Have you nothing else to do, but follow me on these sites; pick on a comment and jump on it? You have insulted plenty of posters, madam….oops, ma’am, I mean….which is a shortened for. But, you even took issue with that.
    Sorry, I am on my way out. I am grown up and I went through pain which will last me a lifetime. Do not be insensitive and heartless.
    I could say so much, but, my parents have taught me to respect the elderly. So, I respect your person. Try to have a good night, Rebecca. Getting worked up over a fictitious character and immature me is not worth it. I will not reply to you again. I have told you not to ‘fill’ my inbox, repeatedly. I do not fill an entire page talking about Alexis as you do, or anyone else. I do not expect anyone else to read my posts excerpt the person to which it is addressed. So, if these kind people do not want to read my soooo uninteresting stuff, they do not have to. I love every single person on these sites. Even you, Rebecca. See, I am not a hateful person, but you spit venom , at every turn. You don’t even know me.
    Furthermore, do not accuse me of such….I love Nancy. It is the character with which I have a problem. I have modified my comments, with due respect to Mr. Fairman. It is he to whom I conform, not you Rebecca. If I say anything untoward, he will obliterate it. Ta-Ta.

    Harry 1 replied

    I am just going to say this–I have no use for Alexis and Julian and age has nothing to do with it.
    I don’t like that swarmy Julian. He killed Duke and then has the unmitigated gall to whine to Jordan that Anna was picking on him and being all “inappropriate” in front of Alexis and her daughters. Oh cry me a river, you pantie-waste, sissy! And Alexis–all these years of watching her moral posturizing to her daughters and she knowingly takes up with a man whom she KNOWS killed Duke, therefore breaking Anna’s heart. Jimmy cracks corn and Alexis doesn’t care.
    That said, I think a woman of any age can have the wedding of her dreams. I say more power to her.
    Rebecca is right when she says we have a double standard as far as age is concerned when considering the genders. I don’t think a woman being ten years older than a man is problem at all. In fact, many men and women would say it’s the solution! My problem is that Alexis is supposed to be a couple of years younger than Julian. William deVry takes really good care of himself and looks a good decade younger than his 47 years which only amplifies the age issue. I am the person who cannot ignore the elephant in the middle of the living room. That is my only bone of contention.
    I also think it’s hard to fathom that Laura is Nikolas’s mother knowing Genie is only a decade older than Tyler.

    Your attempt at twisting the truth is tedious CeeCee.

    You have repeatedly insinuated yourself into my comments for so long I can’t keep count…all the while claiming you don’t read them. You go back and forth with Shay with your smug, what you both tbink ob-so-clever posts to each other about Alexis and the actress herself, NG, make continuos digs about her age, sexuality (which you described as a sickness at “her age” because according to you it’s not appropriate or normal for her to have such a sexual desire…you have called her chest wrinkled. You stated in another post Kelly Monaco isnt aging well as her face looks close to 40…

    As for appearing in your inbox…if I reply that’s ahsre I’ll be. A thread is linked. However, I won’t even liztt yet again the on and on again offensive comments you and Shay repeatedly make…although I’ll admit your repeatedl veiled posts that you and Shay refer to me…with your shared “wit” each time you make a dig at age…referring fo how I react to it…is antagonistic. Please don’t feign innocence. How do I see them? Because I’ll be reading a thread and voila…they’re a constant…even if I haven’t posted in that section.
    However, my Shakespearean quote at the end of one of my posts was not addressed to you..and yet youu felt a need to correct my interpretation of the quote…in your usual superior manner…and went on to say it amazes you how people don’t undestand the Bard of which once again…YOU…are the expert. Except you…were wrong…as the quote has two interpretations and I used it correctly. And then Shay went on to clap her virtual hands in glee as she praised you for what she thought was you correcting me. But I digress. The point is stop the cloaked attacks on me and then try to turn it around. As for others…you correct them on their grammar, the definition of their words, etc.

    I noticed that you have started to appreciate the character Alexis a bit more. The point is it hasn’t stopped you from critiquing her “wrinkled cleavage”. (Lol, if you ever read this Nancy rest assured this viewer never noticed any such thing). THAT is insulting Nancy…not Alexis. Don’t you get that?

    And finally….I’m in my 40s. You have just referred to me as elderly. Hahaha.. sorry. In the midst of my disdain I have to laugh… And with that one word…elderly…I rest my case.

    rebecca1 replied

    Hey Harry…

    I just don’t see that Julian looks younger than Alexis…other than he is in amazing shape for ANY age. Face-wise Nancy-Alexis is adorable…though her style is a bit outdated in my opinion. And, we all know people who are the same age but one looks much younger, or the younger one looks older. It’s individual. In our GH couple, he’s supposed to be four years older. Ultimately, it just doesnt matter. Where age difference comes into play is Christina and her teacher, Ava and Morgan. And even then, as long as all are adults it’s personal preference. I think it’s in our nature to notice which one in a couple looks older, is better looking…how’d he or she get him or her…but at some point, even if we’re still wondering, lol, we hopefully realize the two are in love!

    I hear and agree with what you’re saying about Alexis knowing about Julian re Duke. And you probably know I loved Duke. But as someone else pointed out Duke was going to kill Jordan. And Jason has killed and everyone loves him. And Sonny. And Luke. And Hayden is probably in love with Nicolas in spite of herself, even though he tried to kill her. And Carly married Sonny even though he threatened her life. And kiki is sleeping with a guy who slept with her mother. Sabrina, whether someone likes her or not, is the epitome of good yet cares for Carlos even though she knows his crimes. Lol…all the characters are bankrupt in that way…but that’s the insanity of soaps. What bothers me more than any of the above is Michael forgiving Sonny. That was just the ultimate letdown.

    Cee Cee and Rebecca:
    Honestly, you both need to stop taking yourselves so seriously.
    Has it occurred to either one of that the reason you don’t get along is that you’re too much alike?
    This isn’t fun for the rest of us so I suggest that you both develop senses of humor about yourselves. Stop pushing each other’s buttons and stop reacting to the buttons being pushed. And then have a good laugh at your own expense once in awhile.
    Maybe the two of you can bond over your mutual love of Nina and Franco–a love I don’t seem to get. Yes, you can school me on the beauty of Nico while bashing my lack of vision in the process.
    I serve myself up as a sacrificial lamb for the sake of quietude, peace, but mostly, for the sake of fun.
    Isn’t that why we come here in the first place?

    CeeCee replied

    @Harry 1.
    Hi, Harry,
    Awwww, thank you for taking the time, dear friend. That gesture means so much to me….you are noble of heart.
    I really do not like to put myself in a defensive position, Harry, however, as I said before I do defend myself….once or twice. Then I stop. I promise you , on all that’s holy, I do not read what Rebecca has to say. Lately, at my husband’s suggestion, I just delete her comments as soon as they appear. I have feelings, Harry, and no matter how much thick skin we may think we have, her words can be very hurtful. I truly pity anyone who has the need to hurl such insults on another human being. I am not a character in as soap and neither is Shay.
    I never comment on what she says, unless it is in my inbox….that makes it personal. That, dear Harry, is the crux of the matter. She decided to make every comment Shay and I write, personal. No one forces her to read what Shay, su0000, Timmm or I write. And, as Shay intimated, there is an obsession where Alexis is concerned. I can separate The actor from the character. Some people cannot, I suppose.
    I do not go into tirades about a character I like to defend said character. Not only that, but she indirectly attacks my family and my innocent little babies. A very cold woman. She goes on and on as if she knows me personally. My family is my life; it is only natural for its members to be mentioned. Of course I will mention my grandmaman; she tells me all about the soaps back in the day and then some. She was the one to get me hooked on soaps, in the first place. But, Rebecca is offended by that and tells me to grow up. Oh, okaaaaay!!!
    I have told her many times to stay off my turf. Every comment directed to me or Shay attacks our intelligence and insults our person. Paragraph indentation and spacing? Really?
    I can understand Mr. Fairman’s staff monitoring and moderating our comments about the characters/actors, but , so should they moderate posters insulting fellow-posters. They do not do that because Rebecca gets away with every crass expression towards me and Shay and Timmm and su0000, ever written.
    She and I the same, you say? Ha! Not in a million years. I fess up to my insolence ( when necessary). She refers to us as ‘best buds’…..but, in a demeaning manner. That speaks of jealousy to me.
    I truly do appreciate your benevolent intent and gesture, Harry….I do have a heart as big as Texas and beyond; by the same token, I like to preserve my pride and dignity, my dear friend.
    Later, Harry, my hero.

    rebecca1 replied

    Hey Harry,

    I appreciate your message, literally anf figuratively. And I agree in theory.

    Couple of points:

    It’s difficult, frustrating (and a blessing, lol) that the only way any of us can communicate is publicly, so there is no way to attempt to iron things out privately or befriend people off this site. I was conflicted about even responding to your post because it could exacerbate an already bad situation. On the other hand, letting things go unsaid means I agree with your insinuation…that CeeCee and I are both at fault. I don’t agree other than yes, I’ve allowed my buttons to be pushed…

    CeeCee, Shay and I have been careful not to mention each other’s names while “talking” about each other…but I was and am quite aware when they do…I respond…and then they bond over their mutual “accomplishment.”

    Ironically the three of us were “friends” here…but turned during one event. I “dared” like the Nina-Ava baby episode. Thought it was horrific in the event but fantastically acted and gripping. CeeCee jumped on me and accused me of enjoying babies getting hurt…and thus it began…I thought her comment offensive and ridiculous. She continued on, I continued on the defensive. Shay thought it funny, “enjoyed” our argument which if someone cares to go back and read it’s there…she also found CeeCee’s husband oh-so funny because he insulted me via her…and told CeeCee so. I explained to Shay at the time that two people arguing is not ‘fun’ and that she only added to the antagonism by applauding insults. And that was the beginning. Shay and CeeCee bonded over their, lol, common enemy, me…..and went on to find lots in common.

    I detest isms. Racism, anti-semitism, agism. I have read posts that exhibited all of these from different posters which sadly reflects human nature. Doesn’t mean I can’t or shouldnt react to it.

    I notice several people have reacted to Nancy’s connents re Viola Davis.Some were in Nancy”s corner, others thought her comment racist. The point is it pushed buttons. Likewise a poster just mentioned the new doctor, hoping he wasnt gay. Again, generated discussion and anger. Same should be about agism. CeeCee and Shay repeatedly insult Alexis…and there’s ALWAYS an age reference. Her chest is “Wrinkled” and at “her age” shouldnt be shown. At “her age” sge se shouldnt be so sexual but she sbould be “knitting booties,” why are they spending money on a “granny’s” wedding. The jokes about her old cleavage…it goes on and on. There are women here who are mature.. I’m in my 40s. So yes, I find those comnents offensive…NOT because, as CeeCee has riduculously accused…because I’m “jealous of youth and insecure”…again, ridiculous, immature comment in and if itself”…but because it’s offensive to say women over 40 are basically less sexual beings who no longer look sexual and shouldnt try to be…and should be home knitting, shouldnt be acting giddy with love, should forgo a big wedding which is for the young, etc. These types of comments are as judgmental and stereotypical as racism, homophobia, anti semitism, etc. Saying we need younger characters on the show is not ageist; saying someone’s chest is wrinkled at her age is. Not to mention it’s Nancy’s actual body ..not a prop or costume. CeeCee gets offended at the drop of a hat. Jonboy called Sam’s boots hooker boots,..and because CedCee has similar boots she was all offended and put jonboy in his place. But she doesnt see calling someone old with wrinkled breasts as offensive?

    Since CeeCee and Shay don”t say my name directly, most posters, you included, wouldnt perhaps notice how many times they’ve slammed me…uness you were folliwing our stupid saga. Bur it’s there.

    Case in point, which I mentioned recently, my Shakespeare quote. CeeCee wrote to Shay to say I intetpreted it and used it incorrectly…Shay complimented her knowledg and how she jumped on my post. It was patronizing, intended to insult (by the way my interpretation was correct since there are several theories). I then got a message that ” times have changed since “yentas” went to school.” That post didn’t make the board here but arrived in my mail, so there we had an attempted age and possible anti semitic comment.

    Do you remember Harry when I pointed out to you ages ago rhe ageist comnents? You said you didnt notice…and then you did. You wrote to CeeCee and Shay about ir…and even noticed their attitude toward me

    There it is. In the scope of life beyond this is beyond unimportant. We all have problems..as all people do at some point in their lives. Not everyone chooses to discuss them publically. I dont need the aglta…but I’d rather read unoffensive comments regarding story. Insults toward a segment of the population, mature women, is not “fun.”

    As always Harry…you ARE fun and cool and one of the nicest posters out here…which balances things out.

    rebecca1 replied

    Wow! Lol…after reading yet another off-the stability chart post by “my friend” directed at me… the part where she writes that I attack her innocent babies tops the list. I am not qualified…don’t have the credentials…to even begin to address her thought process and delusional accusations. It’s beyond my scope…but frightening all the same.

    I’m enjoying the shared scenes between Laura and Tracy lately. I’m glad the writers are writing such scenes. I’m glad the writers didn’t immediately have the two ladies fighting like cats and dogs. I’m glad, for the most part, both characters are remaining somewhat civil toward each other. They may be arguing before it’s all over with, and if so, I’m happy the writers have opted for a slow build-up in the meantime.

    Hi, Amy.
    I know practically nothing about the ladies’ backstory. Because Laura and Tracy are both ex wives of Luke, were they at each other’s throats, or were they civil to each other? I love them both and it would be nice to see them in a healthy relationship with each other. I loved their exchange. I think it would also be so invigorating to see both without a man hampering their freedom, for the time being. Each getting to know herself.

    Marie replied

    Hi CeeCee. It’s hard to dislike Tracy since Jane is such a good actor and she plays Tracy to perfection. And from the beginning, Tracy was written to where whether or not you agreed with her actions, you at least understood how she came to be the way she is. Laura has always pretty much been written as a nurturing type of lady. Back in the day, Laura was given more stories where she could display an adventurous side as well as a feisty side if pushed. I will be thrilled if she is written that way again soon. There have been times when Tracy has felt threatened by Laura or Luke’s love for Laura. Tracy has lashed out at Laura sometimes or has done some tasteless things like demand she and Luke hold their wedding on Laura’s birthday. Laura has usually been the bigger person and treated Tracy better than Tracy probably deserved. If they end up not being civil toward each other in the future, it will most likely be because of Nikolas and ELQ rather than Luke baggage. Laura worked for ELQ in 1981 as the receptionist. Her desk was next to the elevators, much like how Rosalie’s is. Lila and Edward had a soft place in their hearts for Laura and Laura’s parents. In the late 70′s and early 80′s, Laura and Monica were close. Monica was almost like a big sister or maybe even like a step mom to Laura. After Luke raped Laura, Monica confided to Laura that she had been raped years earlier. Monica and Laura remained close even after Monica broke up Laura’s parents’ marriage. But I digress. My point is Laura and the Quartermaines (and Laura and ELQ) go way back. I can’t imagine Laura being downright mean to any of them unless she was in momma bear mode, desperately trying to protect Nikolas.

    CeeCee replied

    @Marie.
    Why, thank you so much, Marie, for taking the time to give me a little history on three of GH’s iconic characters. What a lovely synopsis.
    I think I can understand the dynamics binding these ladies together. I fell for Laura when she did her short stint at Y&R. She made such an impression on me; had to forget her.
    And, Tracy….you describe her to the letter; that is, one can’t help liking her, even against one’s will. I wish Monica would be more visible. I thought her ‘talk’ with Jason that one time made such an impact on me since Leslie and Billy had really not worked with each other before. They took to each other like white on rice….as if they had known each other forever. Good stuff. We need more scenes like that….
    Thanks again, Marie….good night.

    Concerning Jakey. Why does he think he hurt Sam? Poor kid did nothing to make her fall. I hope she doesn’t have loss of memory, because Sam would never lie about something like that. I do not like her much, but she strikes me as a good person, yes?
    I think Kristina and Parker are in love but are trying very hard not to eat the forbidden fruit. Later.

    CeeCee replied

    Everything you said, Jimmy, could fall into place. Hayden is running from something, we know that much. If she has been this high-powered Wall Street exec; ( was it Wall St. I can’t remember) and had left her position in shame, in her past life? Then, I find it quite implausible she would make herself so visible within the business world; especially Vegas, where internationally renowned tycoons and businessmen, in general, have multi-billion dollar dealings going on. They would recognize her…as we have already seen. That’s weird, as well, because Hayden should have known better.
    This alliance with Tracy was a last-minute ploy to somehow fit her in somewhere. I just think that TPTB had not decided whether to keep Rebecca on or have her die; ergo, the coma. Once they decided where and in what capacity to place her, this ELQ scheme was concocted.
    What we do not know ( and is basically the only thing which intrigues me about the storyline) is whether the revenge on Nik is because of her shooting or is it something from her past which either, or both, the Quartermaines and Nik/ Cassidines are involved?
    So, Jimmy, I don’t know if this plan of hers is all about the money. It may be something much more personal than that.
    But, as few of us agree, including yourself, this plot may backfire, if she is, indeed fallen for Nik. By the same token, as I said on another comment, revenge is a mighty powerful incentive; especially if it has been festering for years. Bye, my friend.

    And poor Nik, even though he’s in a bad-boy phase….he’s never had great radar when it comes to the women in his life, except Emily. Even this wasn’t perfect. Maybe this was because he was brought up alone by Stefan C and the servants on a Cassidine Greek island.

  15. Dylan says:

    Until I see SOME sort of motivation for Nikolas’ turn to the dark side…ANY type of motivation….I can not buy into any story he is involved in. These writers NEED to create a reason why Nikolas would suddenly be so vicious, money obsessed, power hungry, and just an all around douche bag. He had all the money in the world, with islands and compounds and homes and business interests all around the globe. And he would go batshit crazy over holding onto ELQ?? Which is a comparatively paltry holding considering his breeding. If I was writing it, Nikolas would have been forced to be evil and do Cassadine business maybe because Helena or her minions were holding Emily and Alan, or any number of deceased characters, threatening them with harm unless Nikolas did what they wanted. He could have played along, hoping for the ultimate release of the captors. Or it could have been faked, and Helena just faked footage of alan and Emily being held hostage, thus devastating Nikolas, and THAT caused him to become broken down and bitter. The reasons were SO thin and absurd and flimsy!! Helena threatening Nikolas with tampered ballot boxes? Really?!? This is a soap town where serial killers work in hospitals with children…where murderers run free and happy…where aliens have visited….etc, etc, etc. And Nikolas would suddenly hire a hitman to protect a secret to avoid a slap on the wrist for ballot box tampering? He could have easily bought off a judge. I will admit that there is chemistry between Nikolas and whoever she is, but after such a weak start, and a dragged out reveal as to who Hayden really is (it better be a historically connected doozy of a reveal, or just another letdown), I am just not on board. Also, seeing Nikolas being sexually aggressive bordering on violent is not appealing or appropriate. Some of the most important women in Nikolas’ life have been raped….his mother Laura, his friend/bed buddy Elizabeth, his dead fiancee Emily…and he always responded with kindness and compassion. To see him act like a desperate, lustful sexual predator is frankly disgusting. There are other ways to have Nikolas take his shirt off, if that is such a necessity. Hayden should have been Emily. Rebecca Budig looks enough like both the other Emily’s that they could have pulled it off. It would have allowed for a return to their epic style romance, rather than watching scene after scene of deranged couples like Sonny/Carly, Paul/Ava, Franco/Nina, Dante/Valerie, etc etc. Those kinds of couples bring the drama and the action, but that needs to be balanced by a good, solid, heroic couple we can root for in the midst of all the swirling chaos.

Rigging the election? Becoming a corporate raider to get control of ELQ after loving Emily? I like having a bad Cassidine lurking in the background to cause havoc once in a while, but not Nicholas. On the other hand, if he was always sweet Nik this gets boring, too. Oh well…what to do with him?

    Exactly. Nik’s transformation…his absorption into the dark side was too quick and too drastic. I mean, did he get hit on the head? No. So, as some of us said, on the onset of all this change, Helena has something to do with it. Either he has a demon chip in his brain, or he is someone else (possibly another Cassadine) having had facial plastic surgery. It’s right up Helena’s alley.

    Helena told Nik they were going down and Nik would lose his island castle, his way of life and Spenser would have no legacy..
    Nikolas is a Cassidine, he went into Cassidine mode to save it all..
    He put on his Cassidine DNA cap and went to work!!
    He did what any Cassidine would do to save the Cassadines, got hold of ELQ..
    Nik is not that dark but he is a cassidine! and its about time he takes his seat at the head of the Cassidine table, he is more than capable to do so..

    When Nikolas was in the process of taking over ELQ they said although his family are wealthy they are cash poor because Helena and the rest of them were spending all the money money on their schemes — I guess mad scientists and the like ain’t cheap. Anyway, said he wanted ELQ to ensure Spenser’s future. When the new writers took over suddenly the Prince has money again, so I think this is one of those stories that didn’t transition well from what Ron C had in mind when he had the Prince go dark and where these new writers want him to go. I blame Ron C for this because Nikolas kicked Britt out of his house in moral outrage for lying to him and a few months later the character was ordering a woman killed– it made no sense then or now– so unless at some point it is revealed the Prince was brainwashed by his grandmother his transformation from good guy to bad guy will always be a mystery.

    I can’t believe he was writen as wearing a white hat ..
    Nik needs to take his place as a true Cassidine!!
    I love it when he is the Dark Prince..

    Nikolas is still 2 sides of the coin..

    So now that Nick put a ring on it, Hayden has “conveniently”
    forgotten he had her shot…Love is in the air…PLEEEASE…..
    Preferred her character playing a grifter, smart & quick not
    allowing him to get away with what he did to her.
    Obviously she’s running from something or someone and
    she’d rather stay lost.. Not to mention Tracy, will throw her
    under the bus if she doesn’t deliver the ELQ shares as
    promised. So now we’ll also discover this marriage is null
    & void because Hayden isn’t her legal name, but she’s
    already married or somehow related to the new crime boss.

    Hello, sweet Fanny.
    Do you really think Hayden is being true and real? It is so hard to tell. I’d like to believe she’s playacting; yet trying to entrap Nik, line, hook and sinker. However, you may be right….she could be falling for Nik. But, human emotions are tricky. There’s a fine line between love and hate. At this point, Hayden is stuck between a rock and a hard place. Plus, she struggles with her own feelings. She is being pulled in three directions….herself and her feelings for Nik; her alliance with Tracy; and, her revenge on Nik. I would find it so cringe-worthy to even touch ‘that’ which tried to have me killed. Is she sucking it up? Or, does she truly love Nik. I suppose revenge is a potent poison. Later, Fanny.

    @CeeCee, Sweetie… I was being sarcastic when I said “Love is in the air”
    Reeeeaaaallllllllly. I dislike this incarnation of Nik & truthfully he is grossing
    me out, he’s all over Hayden like a live OCTOPUS!!! If I were her I’d sleep
    with one eye open. She’s simply running a scam, running scared… as you
    also mentioned she is having a tug of war with herself “EMOTIONALLY”at
    least when it comes to the Prince not so charming.

    @Fanny.
    I love that…”Prince not so charming.” How true. I thought I was the only one who felt repulsion for Nik. Believe me, I’ve ‘regurgitated’ a comment here and there about him, but my posts were annihilated. Lol.
    Other than being controlled by his grandmother as the reason he is such a baddie, I don’t know what his saving grace is. Later, my lady…..

    Hey, Fanny…TO HELL WITH ‘sleeping with one eye open’!!!!! OH, PUH-LEEZ!!!!! I think that Hayden needs to GROW A BRAIN, R-U-N to the hills as fast as she can and (most of all) A-V-O-I-D that humorless sourpuss Nikolas like the plague!!!!!! Just saying……….

    It will be interesting to see in which direction Hayden chooses next.

    I would also like to know because it was very unexpected, but at the same time perfect for their vows.
