When you want the truth, go to the source… which is what we should have done initially and belatedly did when an item we recently ran stirred up questions about the status of Kassie DePaiva and whether her popular ONE LIFE TO LIVE alter ego, Blair, might return to GENERAL HOSPITAL in the future. “It opened a hornet’s nest within a corner of the soap world with my fans,” shares the actress, adding that her followers would love nothing more than to see Blair move to Port Charles permanently!
Setting the record straight, DePaiva tells us that “my character was not invited to stay there, which I’m sure was based on story.” Which isn’t to say that somewhere down the line, that won’t change. “We’re not talking about Llanview anymore; we’re talking about Port Charles. If there’s not a place for Blair at GH, then there’s not a place for Blair at GH. I, personally, have no say in it whatsoever.” Should her phone ring, however, she’ll happily answer! “Would I like to come back and play? Absolutely!” she says enthusiastically.
