On the upcoming Monday edition of CBS Daytime’s afternoon series, The Talk, look for lGeneral Hospital favorite, Vanessa Marcil (Brenda Barrett) to mix things up with the ladies on the panel as they welcome guests that include: Actor Mark Feuerstein (CBS’ 9JKL); and for their “Top Talker” segment, television host Natalie Morales.

Marcil who will co-host the hour, tweeted her excitement stating: “Uh oh!!!!! I love me some @CBSDaytime See you Monday!!!!”

Next, Vanessa’s pal, and longtime screen partner, Maurice Benard (Sonny, GH) added, “Can’t wait!”  Later, Vanessa added a humorous Instagram pic of her man, MC with Marilyn Monroe, stating: “I will be talking about MC cheating on me w this blonde on @cbsthetalk starting Monday”

In addition, on Saturday, Vanessa tweeted to Michael Fairman that she will also be co-hosting on Tuesday’s episode of The Talk as well.

Marcil is no stranger to co-hosting either, having been a very special guest co-host on Soap Nation Live’s Daytime Emmy Nomination Special back in 2015.  You can listen to the broadcast here.

Will you be checking out Vanessa on Mondays broadcast of The Talk? Would she make a great permanent co-host? Comment below!

    Melissa, I was a die-hard fan of Sonny and Brenda in the 90′s! I would tape the show everyday (on VHS) and then rewind their scenes over and over again. I agree, her return (in 2010) was written very poorly. Unfortunately, I am not a “Carson” fan.

    Her “Battle of the Breadrolls” with Carly was pretty lame, not to mention, petty and immature!

    I still think Vanessa is one of the most beautiful women that has ever been on daytime. I would love to see her come back. I do not watch “GH” frequently, but think she would be a cast addition to “B&B” or “DOOL.”

    I always comfort myself with the thought that Brenda and Jax are on some tropical island, loving each other, free from the stains of Carly and Sonny!

    Nice sentiments, Jovin! Now, if only the viewers were “free from the stains of Carly and Sonny!”

    JK, I echo your sentiments exactly! I had initially left a short negative comment that was not published. And I actually agree with those who chose not to publish it because I was completely snarky. But my disgust lies mainly with the hosts of “The Talk” for the reason you mention… This is an unwatchable show for me as well.

    Aw, this is where Vanessa’s career jumps the shark! “The Talk” should be called “The Talking Over One Another!” It is so annoying and every time Underwood appears on my TV I want to shoot out my screen!

    My comment is not meant to offend, but, Underwood looks and acts like a drag queen. I can’t stand the show or any of the co-hosts myself.

    DMR, that’s how I feel about Wendy Williams

    Rhonda, YES, and both Wendy and The Talk (and The View) co-hosts constantly interrupt their guests while interviewing them.

    I could never connect with her character Brenda, she seemed so immature and annoying most of the time. I do like Vanessa tho, good luck with the hosting gig.

    Saw her on The Talk today. Had to change the channel–too many cringe-worthy comments made by Vanessa Marcil. She came across as insensitive, uninformed, and a little inappropriate at times.

    I feel like something has happened to her-she has seemed a bit “off” since her return to General Hospital in 2010. Her social media posts/comments are odd and it’s a bit of a turn-off. I felt that way when she returned to General Hospital in 2010, and I was a die-hard fan of Sonny and Brenda in the 90′s. Her acting was way off key.

    I agree. I saw a few snippets of The Talk and Vanessa did seem a bit off. I was never quite sure what point she was trying to make.
    And like you, DMR, I was an enthusiastic fan of Brenda’s back when she was on GH the first time.
    Maybe being married to Corey Feldman during his Michael Jackson moonwalking days traumatized her.
