She’s the mascot, the head cheerleader, and the all-around good sport for the entire Nurses’ Ball. She’s like Beyonce but with more dresses.”
Valentini on if we are done with all the surprises from GH’s 50th: “No. There are a few more this week, as well as after the Nurses’ Ball. This is what we’ve been doing for the last year. Ron Carlivati, head writer and I believe that the show should be fun and exciting and surprising. We want it to be like watching a live event – everyone finds out together what’s going to happen.”
