I was going to write an article about how Sonny seems to have two lovely Italian ladies to choose from when I heard the news that Kelly Sullivan (Connie) is leaving the show.
It seems there will be no love triangle between Sonny, Olivia, and Connie. I was shocked. She was such an important character to the landscape of Port Charles for some time now. Connie was hugely entertaining and since she has been fully integrated I will admit she has not been as interesting.
The time came though for her to integrate, it was getting annoying her switching personalities back and forth. So, now that Connie will be out of the picture, I am assuming that Olivia and Sonny will be getting romantically entangled soon.
How will Dante feel about his mom and Sonny being romantically involved? Most kids dream of their parents getting back together, but I can’t imagine that Dante the cop will not want his ma involved with Sonny the Kingpin. Remarkably Sonny and Dante have been able to forge a relationship even though they are on opposite sides of the law.
Olivia has dated shady men before. Olivia had a red hot relationship with younger man Johnny Zacchara. However, his violent line of work was the demise of their affair. Will she be able to overlook Sonny’s line of work? Her feeling for Sonny have gone back a long time since they were kids. That kind of nostalgia is powerful.
Sonny and Olivia can both cook for each other. I wonder which one is the better cook? Perhaps they could have a cook off. Boy would I like to be invited to that.
Although General Hospital doesn’t comment about contract status, Kelly Sullivan has confirmed that she will be leaving in August. Sullivan took over the role of Kate in September 2011. Lisa LoCicero (Olivia) has recently signed a new contract with General Hospital. Although rumors have been flying that Sullivan and General Hospital could not reach an agreement regarding her contract on Facebook Kelly denied that by saying “This is not a contract issue, “I have been written off the show.” She went on to say, “I have no ill feelings towards any of the staff or crew connected to the show or the network,” she adds. “I will miss everyone dearly.”
Many fans commented that they believed that Sullivan’s work was overlooked when she did not receive a nomination for a Daytime Emmy. Surely they will be disappointed with the news of her departure.
Are you looking forward to a Sonny and Olivia relationship? Are you disappointed that Kelly Sullivan is leaving?
