    Susan M., I agree with all of your comments. I too, love Melissa Archer & the character of Natalie & always have. I remember the very first episode of OLTL she appeared in. What a great long story she head. She is gorgeous & I LOVE to see her on GH. They need a pretty redhead. MISS her & everyone on OLTL.

    gloria replied

    Susan, since she cannot belch/burp where we can all hear her she uses the word to make her point & make sure we all know how much she dislikes “MA”-which looks like she is saying she cannot stand her own mother but whatever, maybe she can’t! ha. We must assume she means Melissa Archer but dislikes her so much she cannot bear to write the name.

    Susan M. replied

    I think it is a very nasty comment and not very nice…. I don’t want to know what her foul comment means anymore………That’s all I have to say about this……

    gloria replied

    I don’t like your comments. Very rude.

    gloria replied

    I meant to Debi-not Susan M. Debi is rude.

    Debi replied

    I could care less if you don’t like the fact I don’t care for MA. She is a horrible actress, and her character was written horrible. GLORIA
    If you don’t like what I have to say skip my posts. I am entitled to NOT agree with you.

    Susan M. replied

    gloria do you know what BELCH means or stands for???? I would like to know..Not getting a response from the person who made the comment…Again BELCH HATES MA???????????????????????????????? What is this all about?????????? Would really like a answe on this one…I don’t understand those abbreveations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(BELCH) ??????????????? Hates MA(melissa Archer) How could you hate someone you never met!!!!!!!!!!! That isn’t very nice at all…It’s rude & crude……………..Can you answer my questions???? waiting for a reply….Thanks for your comment Gloria 0n 5/27 at 4:25pm…..

    gloria replied

    “could care” less? think you meant “couldn’t” huh Debi?

    Susan M. replied

    What a nasty remark on 5/28 on 4:56am …………This site is for soap fans to express their comments about the soaps.. Which you are not…………Melissa Archer is not a horrible actress !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And her character wasn’t written horrible either…Yes you are entiled to your opinion but you could have phrased it in a less of a mean way…………………….By the wat I read the ABC soap digest today and they are considering Natalie to pay a visit to John in Port Charles…It’s a GOOD POSSIBLITY….I f you dislike her so much I suggest you don’t watch it…Can’t wait to see NATALIE ON GH when it happens !!!!!!! This for Debi not Gloria………………….

    Susan M. replied

    Waiting paiently……..BELCH whats that mean????????????????????

    I think it means I’m jealous and bitter. LOL

    Christine replied

    Debi,

    Your are correct. You are entitled to YOUR opinion, but do you really need to say such nasty things here, on Michael Fairman’s forum? His forum is one of the few remaining forums where people do not resort to swearing and nastiness to both the acting talent and fellow posters.

    It is just my opinion, but in this instance, you probably should have just kept your “hate” for “MA” to yourself, as this has stirred up quite the hornet’s nest.

    Debi replied

    thank you. BELCH means vomit.
    anything else I can help you understand?

    Rusty replied

    Christine,

    You don’t have to agree with Debi, but she IS allowed to express her opinion as she chooses. From the only three posts I saw of Debi’s on this thread, not one of them contains swearing. Also, It looks to me that the nastiness is coming from those who are picking on her grammar and those who seem to be harassing her for an explanation of her comments (which seem pretty self-explanatory to me).

    And for those who couldn’t figure it out, BELCH was probably incorrectly spelled. My inclination is to think it was supposed to read BLECH, as in yuk.

    The only hornet’s nest that’s been stirred up seems to be coming from one or two people. I would write them off as having nothing else to do with their day but obsess on a comment they don’t like. Compare the number of their comments to the original poster. They are the ones perpetuating this ridiculous thread.

    Susan M. replied

    Boloney!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think saying you HATE someone is reaaly nasty in my book……………….Again, Yes she has a right to her own opinon.. But she prases it so crudely……………Could express her opinion in a nicer way… No the nastiness is coming from people PICKING on her… She lite the fire…..People don’t need to respond so nasty& crude.. I don’t agree with your comment RUSTY…..We have plenty to do with our time.. Do you?? If her comment wasn’t so nasty there would be no need to respond ….Don’t need nasty comments on this site….Why are you defending her ??? Yes her comments are NASTY………………….Saying you HATE someone is MEAN & NASTY…Especially if you know them or not………………..Dislike would have been a better word to use……….BELCH means VOMIT never heard that one ever..There are alot of comments to her post… People find it offensive and uncalled for…Yes it upset a lot of soap lovers….That’s the reason for all these comments…She was totally out of line… People should be careful how they words…They can be very hurtful…

    Michael Fairman replied

    Hi Susan M and Christine:
    Please stop using this website over and over about this issue. Again, as I have stated before t opinions are fine, when this gets personal and their attacks it has to stop. I love your passion for the soaps but please let’s all play fair on here! I do not want this site to digress into some hater message board. That is not the message I want to send to the soap community who come here. They want to read and know your thoughts positive and negative about the soaps, not about picking on each other. I hope you can understand my position.
    Thank you
    Michael

    Susan M. replied

    Yes your entitled to your own opinion as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone’s feelings or offend’s you…………………You have to be careful what you say… She is wrong on all counts………………………Defending her you are condoning it…And that person thinks they didn’t say or do anything.. Hate is a strong word………………………………………………………………..

    gloria replied

    First of all-I love this site, it saved me when I found out OLTL & AMC were cancelled. And Michael Fairman is to die for gorgeous, just sayin’.

    However, I do NOT love every character, every storyline, every day! Nobody does. Part of the fun of soaps is getting aggravated with stories/characters & venting about it (at least for me) I could strangle Carly on GH sometimes. I used to fast forward thru Spinelli/Maxie, they got on my last nerve. Some days I cannot stand Phyllis on Y&R. Sometimes it takes me a while to warm to a character & I love some more than others BUT I do not HATE any of these actors or characters.

    I also have the sense to realize that even if I am not crazy about someone, there are others who love them. So why be hurtful in an already hurtful world? There are all kinds of ways to express your opinion-negative as well as positive without being mean.

    If you truly “hate” a character/actor why even click on the darn story in the first place, just to write a “hateful” comment when you know good & well that most people on this site love the character/actor? I feel like we have been called to the principal’s office (by Michael) and it is embarrassing!

    So sorry Michael for any disrespect to you or any other posters. I love this site & feel like these posters are my friends & I look forward to visiting with them every day.

    Susan M. replied

    Sorry Michael it won’t happen again………Hopefully the person who started this get’s the message too… That’s Debi who started it with her not so nice remarks..I will not post anymore remarks regarding that matter…… It won’t happen again on my end……..Everyone stop with the remarks too.. I am…Let’s focus on more positive comments..

    Susan M. replied

    I like Melissa Archer and want to see her on GH with John …

  4. Shirley Miller says:

    Sounds like a very fun group of actors – I’ll be watching! Happy our soap actors are getting a chance to play on other shows. Maybe this means Melissa Archer/Natalie won’t be coming to General Hospital to join Michael Eason/John McBain. Anyone know???

    david replied

    Last time John had a telephone conversation with Natalie on GH it didn’t sound like they were getting along very well being separated. I fear it is a prelude to their breakup with John staying in Port Charles and Natalie never joining him, but I have no reliable evidence.

    Reply

    Shirley Miller replied

    I agree, David. I don’t feel that Melissa/Natalie will be coming to GH. They don’t seem to be getting along that well – as you said. If John loved Natalie and his son Liam that much, he would be going home to visit them more often. Also, I don’t remember John even asking Natalie how Liam was doing in that last phone call – does anyone else??? Thanks for your reply, David!!!

    Tali Smith replied

    Keeping my fingers crossed that she’ll come to GH! She told Michael Fairman in an interview once – “She’d be open to it!” Hope she still is.

    Reply

    david replied

    No, I didn’t hear John asking about Liam either. I am afraid the family of John, Natalie, and Liam died with OLTL, which is such a shame because they had so little time together. I would love Natalie/Melissa Archer joining John/Michael Easton at GH, but I suspect there are financial limits on how many actors can be employed.

    Susan M. replied

    I read the abc soap oprea and it said Natalie might pay Port Charles a visit..It’s not definite yet.. There’s a good possibilty it will happen…Don’t give up on Natalie & John getting together on GH…Read abc soap opera magazine…You will see what I’m talking about………………………………………

    I strongly agree as well Jolie belong together on GH>

    Susan M. replied

    Yes JOLIE belongs on GH……

    MBmomof3 replied

    Agreed! Their fans deserve to see a united John, Natalie and Liam. After OLTL went dark I imagined they eloped to Atlantic City to make it official. I’d be happy if TPTB did that. I don’t need MA on a GH contract (although I’d love that), just a happy ending. I DO NOT want to see John end up with anyone else after waiting so long for their HEA!

    I welcome Melissa Archer (Natalie) if she should ever come to Port Charles to be with Micheal Easton (John) & with baby Liam………………I don’t think OLTL will ever resume!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So I would look forward to seeing Melissa on GH if that would happen……………I miss OLTL and welcome them on GH……………………….Whoever they may be…..OLTL was the best soap in my book….OLTL was a heart-warming , emotional, they cared for one another.. Not many mobster stories on OLTL like GH does……..But GH is improving with those kind of stories….

    You are so right Susan. I would love to see Natalie and John with Liam on GH. He would make a great police commissioner.

  12. Vanessa says:

    I think Frank Valentini and Ron are cheeting the viewers by not having Natalie and Liam on GH. We didn’t get a reunion that we wanted until the end of OLTL and now they are not together. I hope they bring them together soon or it will take a lot away from John Mcbains character, “in my opinion.”

    Reply

    Susan M. replied

    I agree w/ Vanessa…………………..They left us up in the air with that story ..In my opinion they left a lot of the stories on OLTL’s last epoisode.. They left you wanting MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Half done stories which should have continued to fill in the gaps……………….I guess the writers did their best………………………Again it still makes me want more … It wasn’t a ending in a way it was a beginning………..

    I am writing to Frank V and Ron C to tell them both how I feel not that it will mean much because we have to remember what network they work for. I do think Melissa will be great in the movie.

    Can’t wait for this movie because Melissa and David are in it , I know it will be great because they are both great actors. Even though we miss you on OLTL,it will be nice to see you both in a movie .

    I would like to see MA’s Natalie on GH. It doesn’t have to be a contract role. But PLEASE DO NOT BREAK UP JOLIE family. The OLTL fans deserve their happy ending.

    Spoiler Alert: Spoilers indicate Melissa Archer will appear on GH for a limited, non-contractual appearance. Since she has stated that she is not interested in doing another soap, I would ASSUME that she will be there to resolve the relationship with John, one way or another. Michael Easton only has a 6 month contract – unless it is extended until the January 2013 bitter end. No questions – that’s all I know. You can find the information online at numerous spoiler sites.

That is what I read…………….John was on the phone with Natalie the other day but had to leave a message ..Didn’t talk to her personally…He said he didn’t want to lose her & to please call him back asap……………………I hope things work out and Natalie comes to Port Charles real soon….John needs is better half with him & don’t forget baby Liam…………………………………………………………………………………..

    I miss Melissa so much. I think Frank Valentini is nuts not to bring
    her to GH. She has so much charisma, beauty and energy and I’d definately
    watch GH if they brought her aboard. She & Tom P. look gorgeous together.

  21. Huge Fan says:

    Miss Melissa and Natalie. I think when John says he breaks up with Natalie, I’m probably going to just be done with GH. I have zero interest in John, Sam, Jason and Liz or whatever they’re trying to do or even in the vendetta he has put over his family. John couldn’t be a family man for 5 minutes.
