Ladies of General Hospital
My new job has taken over the time I once had to update the blog, but it has not however, taken me away from autograph signings and events. On January 31st, I headed down to one of my favorite venues, Uncle Vinnie’s Comedy Club, NJ’s home to the soap stars. I believe this was the third or fourth January event that Dino & Linda have held with a core group of leading ladies from General Hospital. This year, attending stars were emcee Laura Wright (Carly Corinthos), Maura West (Ava Jerome), Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones), and Emme Rylan (Lulu Spencer-Falconeri).
Events at Uncle Vinnie’s are always fun and stress free. This day was no exception. The venue was packed, but with four actresses circling the tables, the meet and greet went by fast. Emme & Kirsten were absolutely terrific, Laura was good at this point, but Maura was a tad grouchy. Autographs and photo ops were met with sighs and eye rolls. Not sure what she thought she was signing up for.
After the meet & greet, the ladies took the stage for the Q&A. Well, make that 3 of the ladies. Laura, who emceed the event, didn’t like that Kirsten had a higher chair, so she put it on the floor next to the stage and made Kirsten sit there. I found that to be quite insulting. Laura, who at this point had polished off a few too many Budweiser’s, just came across as rude and nasty, interrupting her costars’ responses and snapping at the fans. As I said above, I’ve met this woman at least a dozen times and never saw her act like that. For this reason, I was pretty glad when the Q&A was over.
Overall, another nice day was had at Uncle Vinnie’s Comedy Club. A huge thanks to Dino at UV’s and Linda from Coastal Entertainment for bringing in the GH stars for yet another great event. As for the ladies, I hope to see Emme & Kirsten back in the future.
