Fans of ABC’s hit drama General Hospital will be able to submit questions and receive real-time responses from Emmy winner and fan favorite Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis Davis), who will be up on Twitter at @NancyLeeGrahn during the East Coast broadcast of the show on Thursday, June 7 from 3:00-4:00 p.m., ET.

In the episode tomorrow, Alexis is less than thrilled to find Kristina’s reality show “Mob Princess” cameras rolling when she wakes up.

Nancy Lee Grahn  is also nominated for a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series with ceremonies to be held live on June 23rd and to be seen live on HLN!

Now soapers, knowing the out-spoken, humorous, and honest Grahn, this is one tweeting event not to be missed!

    I am looking forward to this. I missed the first showing of “Mob Princess” (what day was it?). I can’t think of a worse way for a child to get back at her parents than invading their privacy and humiliating them like this. Nancy’s live commentary should make it all the more entertaining.

    Why tweet when general hospital is on? Why not do it after it’s over. The last thing I want to do is keep my eyes on other things while the soaps are on. I need to see this reality crap Christina is going to pull on her parents before I make a comment but I will say this again, There is no way a 18 year old daughter of mine that I will allow to blackmail me into taking over my home, her 18 year old ass would be out the door while I am holding the door open I would be preaching to her to get a job no more allowance, Who is supporting her now?

    Today when Alexis heard that Sam lost the baby, If I was Alexis I would have grabbed that camera that moron was pointing at her and hit that idiot over the head with it. Off to a bad start with this reality garbage.

    This is a really interesting plot twist if it is not carried on too long. Christina almost died because of Sonny, any number of times (most notably when he tried to kill Johnny with the car bomb). Alexis continues to support Sonny any # of ways. Ironically, he always gets on trial for crimes he didn’t commit, but she clearly knows he is guilty of crimes as bad or worse. Christina genuinely has reasons for her anger and blackmail that go far beyond the usual kids (wouldn’t having your father point blank shoot an unnamed cop in the chest even if he didn’t turn out to be your half brother do a number on you?)
    That they all still love each other is very soapy and very human. But it only remains human if there are some consequences for people’s crimes and behavior.
    The reality show is a neat device for both playing out those issues of guilt and forgiveness–Alexis is a mob lawyer and that she only thinks of that when she is embarrassed to have that said on tv might get her character back to the smart conflicted woman with integrity that she used to be.
    If Sonny is to stay on this show and have a role beyond setting violence in motion, then at some point he has to face what is evil about his life that he doesn’t want to see the light of day. I think his redemption if possible is more likely to come if he can see that Connie’s “crimes” are in reaction to his violent life and not just from craziness.
    And by showing how painful it is to have true sorry sensationalized, when the cameras kept rolling when they learned of Sam’s “tragedy”, Christina may have already learned a lesson, and maybe we as an audience can ask ourselves at what cost are we voyeurs to people’s real drama.
    OLTL’s soap within a soap fraternity row was sheer entertainment, and the way it was revived toward the end of oltl’s run showed all the glories and absurdities of the genre.
    This reality show within a soap has the potential to move character forward without the benefit of guns or car crashes. And it might be a context for commentary on our culture’s sick fascination with real people’s pain.
