And this is why Ron Carlivati sucks with anniversaries.

Actually, RC is really kicking ass with this one, IMO. And whether you want to admit it or not, RS was a FIXTURE during GH's most popular & higest rated years. IMO, a 2 day guest stint is a really nice nod to another aspect of GH's "glory years".

I agree with Matt. RS was a fixture during those glory years and it always mentioned as a part of pop culture. Nothing wrong with being there a couple of days on an anniversary run.

Also think RC has been doing a great job with this anniversary. We are seeing a bunch of vets back in stories that actually fit with the overall show. Plots are not affected by trying to find reasons to bring back a returning vet.

Yea when I told my mom about Richard Simmons she just smiled this huge smile and laughed about how much she loved when he would show up on the show and it made her want to exercise since most of the women on the show would take his exercise class at the hospital (she's in her late 50's)

I had no idea Simmons was an actual part of GH for four years. When I heard about this casting news, I was confused.

Now, I get it. Score another one for Carlivati/Valentini!

I thought the same thing for awhile but I'm not so sure anymore. DAYS is in comparatively good shape right now. Credit where it's due, though - CarTini have done much more good than bad for GH. One thing they can't be accused of is not being properly schooled in GH history.

Co-signing this. Don't see a problem with it at all.

I know all about Simmons being part of GH years ago. I was a regular viewer back then and think having him back makes sense, especially with Laura's return. But this deadpan response to the news still made me laugh out loud.

i met him and got a picture with him at an It Get's Better event in LA. He's so tiny. My friend and I towered over him.

Ugh, I hate Jeff and Jordan. Please tell me they're not going to start invading ABC now. Stay at CBS!

No, they aren't coming on. That's just a pic Jordan posted earlier and it shows what Richard has been looking like lately.
