If you want Rebecca Budig to stay on at GH–as all of us here at Soap Cities do–sign this petition!
It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye
And it’s unnecessary. Writing Hayden (Rebecca Budig) off GH is one of the most misguided and frankly, inexplicable, casting decisions in recent soap memory.
Our good friends at Soap Hub have started a petition to convince TPTB at the ABC sudser to reverse their decision. Let’s all sign it and get this luminous light known as Rebecca Budig back on GH.
Just because she’s already taped her last scenes, doesn’t mean the show can’t bring her back, as Soap Hub pointed out.
The Proof Is In the Y&R Pudding
If you’re a Negative Nellie who thinks soap fan voices don’t matter, there are two things you should be aware of.
We at Soap Cities know for a fact that they do, one example of which is the fact that ABC is in talks to get All My Children and One Life to Live back on our screens in digital, broadcast, or both formats.
Second, Y&R recently announced the bizarre decision to let Greg Rikaart (a good friend of Budig’s, incidentally) go. Fan outcry–including a petition–ensued. Then news broke late this past week that he was making a comeback! We can’t see with 100% certainty that the show brought him back because of fans’ making their voices heard or the petition, but it does seem like an awfully big coincidence otherwise.
Before You Go: Did you hear that this GH fan is on his way to Days of Our Lives.
