Vanessa Marcil Reveals How She Landed in the Emergency Room!


Sending good thoughts for a speedy recovery to GENERAL HOSPITAL star Vanessa Marcil (ex-Brenda) who took a spill on a motorcycle and ended up in the emergency room over the weekend!

“Getting my cast on in the Vegas ER after my motorcycle crash in the rain,” Marcil posted to Instagram. “Yes, the peace sign is parody.”

From the photo, it looks like the GH fan favorite was having no problems keeping her spirits up as she was fitted with a cast and a sling. And how anyone can still look that gorgeous while being treated in a hospital is beyond us!

Just a couple days earlier, the actress has shared a photo of herself on a Harley Davidson motorcycle racing down the highway. And when a fan on Twitter suggested she stay off motorcycles for a while, Marcil replied: “Got right back on. Those are the rules…”

Back in November of 2016, Marcil scared her legions of fans when she Instagrammed a photo of herself laid up in traction in a hospital bed (which has since been deleted), which she later revealed was actually just part of shooting her Lifetime movie The Wrong Mother!

On Monday, Marcil was out and about, co-hosting the Celebrating Women Event to benefit CreateHer network which supports women in business and women’s causes. Although in Instagram pics from the event, she was careful to always hide her left arm and cast behind whoever she was taking a photo with!

Check out some of the actress’ personal family photos (with no cast!) in the special gallery below!

We hope Marcil heals up quickly (and we wouldn’t mind seeing her back in Port Charles as Brenda, either)!
