The words are a little confusing or shall we say, not set in stones yet, but Kelly Monaco (Sam McCall, General Hospital) has finally opined about her impending contract negotiations. She finally broke her silence after fans, including me, got worried that another re-cast might be coming in GH.
Soap Central reports that :
Monaco tells Soap Opera Digest that "there really was no doubt" that she would sign a new contract with General Hospital. The twice-Emmy-nominated actress explains that since she and the network had not signed off on the new contract by a set deadline, it was "standard procedure" for ABC to release the casting call. In fact, Monaco notes that General Hospital executive producer, Jill Farren Phelps, contacted her personally to let her know that the breakdown was being released. (Source)
So, I guess it’s all just standard procedure to scare the living wits out of us, Kelly Monaco fans. Well thanks a lot GH .
Even though Kelly already made a statement, there is still no firm confirmation that she’s staying. Something might happen between now and the day they start getting into the nitty gritty of contract negotiations. So until then, I’ll keep crossing my fingers. Jason and Sam are just starting their reunion albeit Jason’s state of mind. I and I’m sure the rest of JaSam fans would be outraged if a recast shows up in the middle of all this HOT reunion storyline.
