General Hospital News And Spoilers: Why Steve Won’t Do Interviews, Steve Burton And Bradford Anderson Reveal Their Opposing Beliefs, Doors Open For Steve, And Much More!

The soap opera world is mourning what many consider to be a legendary, fan-favorite character, on General Hospital.

When General Hospital news came out with confirmation of Steve Burton’s exit from GH as Jason Morgan, fans began to express their feelings surrounding the nature of his exit. Burton chose to not receive the Covid vaccine which goes against the Disney mandate.

Now that Jason Morgan is presumed dead, the news is hitting fans all over again. Perhaps the sting may not be as strong for some after going through losing Jason all those years back. But still, fans are sad and angry.

Steve doesn’t plan on going public with any detailed explanations regarding his firing from GH. In their recent That’s Awesome! podcast discussion, Steve told Bradford Anderson (Spinelli) and the audience, “I’ve gotten a lot of requests for interviews, but I don’t want to do them,” and continued, “I have no interest, dude. Because I don’t want division. That’s the bottom line.”

General Hospital spoilers reveal that in a recent podcast of That’s Awesome!, with Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson, Anderson revealed that he doesn’t agree with his bestie’s decision to not get vaccinated, ultimately leading to his firing from General Hospital.

Bradford and Steve’s friendship runs deep. They aren’t going to let differences of opinions get in the way of their bond. They have been friends for many years and although like most people, they have disagreements, they aren’t willing to throw in the towel on their friendship. Bradford tells fans, “We’ve been friends for a long time,” he disclosed, “but like all friends, we have disagreements. And I disagree with Steve’s decision. He knows that.” He continued by making things clear by stating, “But over our years of friendship,” he continued, “we’ve had plenty of discussions about, well, things like this and other topics and yes, sometimes we agree, sometimes we don’t, but at the end of the day we are still friends.”

Steve is well aware of the storm his decision has created among General Hospital fans, Jason fans particularly. He told Bradford, “I know people are frustrated, I know people are angry, I know all these things,” he said. “Just so you know, I’m OK.” Burton went on to explain that doors are already opening that he is excited about.

General Hospital news and spoilers reveal that Steve has zero interest in doing interviews upon his departure from General Hospital.

For those who think Steve has done something wrong or inconsiderate because misinformation has lead many to believe that Steve is contributing to the spread by not getting vaccinated. This is false. One can still spread and contract the illness, even while vaccinated. What the vaccine does however, is protect one’s self from more severe symptoms. Steve made a personal choice and although disappointing to see Jason go, Burton believes in personal, religious, medical, and all freedoms.

General Hospital News And Spoilers: Steve Burton Defends Kelly Monaco And Kelly Thiebaud In The War For Jason’s Heart

Earlier this week, General Hospital Blog shared some snippets of Steve Burton’s recent interview with Soap Opera Digest. In that interview, Steve revealed his feelings on Jason and Carly’s (Laura Wright) upcoming nuptials, and how this is something new for both Steve and Laura’s characters. He also revealed his thoughts on Sonny’s (Maurice Benard) big return to Port Charles, along with other pressing GH topics.

General Hospital news reports reveal Burton has also voiced his take on the war for Jason Morgan’s heart. It’s undeniable that die hard Jason and Sam Morgan, (Kelly Monaco) aka JaSam fans, aren’t too happy about, 1) his upcoming marriage to Carly, and more importantly, 2) his feelings for Dr. Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud). As history tells it’s story, fan wars over who Jason Morgan gives his heart to has always been a heated battle. Back in the day, fans were on either side of Jason and Sam (JaSam) and Jason and Liz (Rebecca Herbst), (Liason). General Hospital message boards and forums across the internet would explode with fans arguing over their favorite couple. The arguments would get ruthless, and many times, the Soapnet message boards would be shut down for the day by moderators.

General Hospital spoilers reveal there’s a new battle to be fought. This time between Jason and Sam fans vs. Jason and Britt (Brason) fans.

In his recent interview, Burton disclosed his feelings on the bashing his co-stars, Kelly Monaco and Kelly Thiebaud are currently enduring from GH “fans” who are on either side of the war for Jason’s heart. He said, “I get it. I’ve watched shows before where I’ve been upset, okay?” Burton said in an interview with Soap Opera Digest. “So I understand that people get upset over things, for sure. The thing that I don’t condone or like is that people were attacking both Kellys.” 

He added, “I’m not on social that much anymore, but I saw some bad things being said about Kelly Monaco, and some bad things about Kelly Thiebaud, and that’s when I check out. That’s when I’m like, ‘Okay, I’m not even going to engage or read this stuff.’ It is two real human beings that can be affected by those comments, you know?”

Steve is also empathetic to the situation. He disclosed that he too get emotionally invested in the characters and relationships of the shows he watches. He said, “My wife and I watched something on Netflix and something happened and I went, “This is the stupidest show I’ve ever seen! I’m not watching this! I can’t believe they would do something this dumb!” He revealed, “I was so invested that by that point, I go, “I get why people get upset!”… But then we finished it! You kind of settle down and go, ‘It’s a TV show. Get back to the freakin’ TV and watch the rest of it.”

When it’s all said and done, Steve revealed that the actors do not have “We are just doing our job, doing the best we can to tell the story that’s written, the writers, Chris and Dan, aren’t calling us going, “Hey, what do you think about this?”

PSA to our fans from us at General Hospital Blog: Please do not bash the actors just because things in the storyline aren’t going your way. At the end of the day, IT’S A TV SHOW! It’s not worth hurting those who portray these characters. They are human beings with feelings and actually spend time reading feedback online. If you’re a true fan, be a fan, not a hater.

General Hospital Spoilers: Steve Burton Dishes On All Things Jason Morgan, Including His Upcoming Marriage To Carly Corinthos

Steve Burton has portrayed the iconic right hand man, Jason Morgan, for 25 years. Jason has developed loyal bonds with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard), Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright), Sam Morgan (Kelly Monaco), Elizabeth Webber (Rebecca Herbst), and many others over the years. But his friendship with Sonny and Carly is legendary.

General Hospital news reports reveal Burton has addressed some pressing topics in an interview with Soap Opera Digest.

General Hospital spoilers reveal Burton elaborated on his feelings about Jason and Carly’s upcoming nuptials. Jason marrying Sonny’s wife is a touchy subject for most. GH fans aren’t crazy about the idea, knowing that Sonny is actually still alive. Regarding the fans, he admits that they “don’t really get it,” but clears the air with his statement. Burton discloses, “Look, what Laura and I care about is that we’ve had some amazing scenes. That’s what it comes down to for us,” the actor notes. “The overall story, if it works, awesome, but we’re finding something new for us, which we’ve never had, being on the show this long. That’s what’s intriguing to actors. And that’s what I think a lot of fans don’t really get, is that this is new for us, and this is cool for us because as actors we get to explore and do new things with new people and have new scenes and it’s pretty exciting.”

The story of Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud) and Jason’s romance died before it even got a chance to take off. When touching on his thoughts on the possibility of Jason and Britt, Burton reveals, “Jason and Britt are interested in each other, so that’s the wrench in the works, right? They’re interested in each other but then the business side of things comes into play. I think it works perfectly; it’s like a perfect storm of [a marriage] having to happen.” Jason wanted things to work out with Britt, and he genuinely cares for her. But right now his loyalties lie with Carly and the family business. Many fans aren’t happy with that. Fans want to me wow by Jason couldn’t just tell Britt the truth about what’s going on, and Steve Burton have his explanation. “​​A lot of Mafia guys had their affairs on the side, so anything’s possible, but right now, Jason’s doing it by the book, right? It just doesn’t behoove him, in a power transition like this, in a power struggle where there’s violence and all these things happening, to sneak around.” Burton continues, “There is one thing here to accomplish, and that’s the goal of showing a united front with Jason and Carly; this is the best way to do it. Gotta cut the thing off with Britt and move forward for the family. That’s the mentality. And we are on a soap opera, so please forgive me!”

General Hospital news and spoilers confirm that Sonny’s return to Port Charles will inevitably stir things up on many aspects and with many people of Port Charles.

It’s undeniable that Jason’s involvement with Carly and the business will be front and center in the story line, and as far as his romantic life goes, his upcoming wedding to Carly will take its toll on everyone they love. General Hospital rumors claim Sonny will arrive in the nick of time, and some say he will show up too little too late.

Stay tuned to see how things play out as Sonny gets closer to regaining his memory and reuniting with his loved ones. Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros) has basically set all of this in motion while the Corinthos family pays the price.

Michael Fairman Interviews Steve Burton

This Michael Fairman interview with Steve Burton is absolutely amazing. All the questions the fans have been asking since Steve left General Hospital have finally been answered. Many fans are disgruntled, confused, and even angry at what they THINK the facts are related to the entire situation. From Steve leaving GH to move to Tennessee, to then returning to soaps by joining The Young and The Restless, to the way Jason was written off; fans thought the worst of Steve and/or ABC. I sure hope ALL General Hospital and Steve Burton fans read this interview.
The rumors about Steve plotting to go to Y&R all along, or the executives at GH not offering Burton a compromise are untrue. Steve Burton also explains that Jason’s send off was due to lack of time. Time was running out and the writing team had to come up with something. It would be really great to stop reading such negativity from fans who think Steve was untruthful or that ABC just didn’t care enough to keep him. That is entirely not the case. In the interview, Michael asks Steve about the day he left. Steve explains how difficult it was emotionally and mentions that it was very hard on Maurice Benard (Sonny). This actually brought tears to my eyes. He also mentioned that it was very difficult leaving Kelly Monaco Sam), and that it is still weird not being able to see her everyday.
Michael Fairman also asked Steve if there were plans for Jason’s return to GH for the anniversary show. Steve Burton expressed that he would love to come back for the 50th, but since he is now on CBS he is not sure if that will be allowed. All this being out it the open, I hope fans and Steve Burton have closure now in regards to what really happened during and after the time of his exit. After all thins said and done, Steve did what was best for his family and his life.
