The Soaps: Tune In Tomorrow

The current #MeToo storyline on “General Hospital” recently was praised in the Washington Post newsletter “The Lily” written by Rebecca M. Bodenheimer. As viewers of “GH” know, the story revolves around Kiki Jerome, played by Hayley Erin, who is being sexually harassed by Dr. Bensch, played by James DePaiva. Bensch suddenly kissed Kiki, made unwanted sexual advances and threatened to ruin her hopes for a medical career if she didn’t consent to his bidding. “GH” used the tag #GHToo in a fictional story written by journalist Lulu (Emme Rylan) about what Kiki has been going through since she publicly brought charges against Dr. Bensch. Kiki also hired Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) to represent her. Kudos to “GH” for tackling this important subject.

SHORT TAKES:

Farah Fath, who recently returned to her former role of Mimi Lockhardt on “Days of Our Lives,” was thrilled to announce that she and her husband. Phil Galfond, are expecting a baby (no due date was mentioned). On social media, Fath, who lost her first baby at about 13 weeks, stated that she and Galfond are blessed with what the internet calls a "rainbow baby,” meaning a baby who follows a miscarriage or other infant loss. Fath also played Gigi Morasco on “One Life to Live” and was in the Hallmark TV movie “Murder, She Baked: A Plum Pudding Mystery,” starring Alison Sweeney, who played Sami Brady on “Days.”

Kate Mansi has returned to “Days” in her former role of Abigail DiMera, which she last played in 2016, before the role was taken over by Marci Miller, who has decided to leave the show. Miller helped Mansi get caught up on Abigail’s storyline prior to her return.

Also returning to “Days” is Arianne Zucker in her former role of Nicole Walker, which she left early last year. In the current storyline, it appears that Nicole may have been the person who killed Deimos. Zucker recently finished filming the second season of the web series “Ladies of the Lake,” appeared in the Lifetime movie “Web Cam Girls,” and took up ballroom dancing with her husband, Shawn Christian (ex-Daniel on “Days”).

Christopher Sean has announced his decision to leave “Days” and his role of Paul Narita, who he has played since 2014. On social media, Sean thanked his fans, and added: “I will never forget my days at 'Days.'" Christopher will be the voice of a character in the Disney animated series “Star Wars Resistance.”
