Focusing On The Things That Keep Us Watching

CHEMISTRY

Definition

In psychology, the word “chemistry” is used when referencing natural mutual rapport between two or more people. When two people have “chemistry” they effortlessly feel a natural connection with each other, even if they’ve just met.

The term “romantic chemistry” refers to a natural mutual romantic attraction between two people which results from a mixture of physical attraction and natural mutual personality-based rapport.

A relationship must meet three criteria to qualify as having true “romantic chemistry”:

Mutual – One sided attraction is simply “attraction”, “infatuation” or maybe even “lust.” Once any of those terms become what both sides are feeling for each other then it is mutual and satisfies one requirement of “romantic chemistry.”

Effortless – “Learning to love someone” isn’t generally referred to as “romantic chemistry.” The whole idea is that there’s an effortless connection, a natural rapport between people which earns the special moniker. Two people who feel like old friends, even though they’ve just met, qualify as feeling this natural, effortless connection.

Sexual – “Romantic chemistry” without sexual attraction is merely “chemistry” or friendship. When two people feel “romantic chemistry” they not only feel naturally like old friends, but they also feel a sexual attraction to each other. The term “sexual chemistry” is used when referring only to the sexual component of romantic chemistry.

We also required a fourth variable in our test subjects: Longevity. Unlike infatuation or even mutual lust, true romantic chemistry doesn’t disappear over time.

Good morning, GHers!

I have to tell you that when I got home last night, I just could not post. I made the mistake of going on Twitter to see what the reaction was to the Jason scenes, and instead, it was as if the Jason scenes hadn’t happened. Instead, I saw pages and pages of reaction to the Sam scenes with Todd! Even Robin Strasser weighed in.

While I am thrilled that our Kelly Monaco continues to shine, no matter who she shares scenes with, and while I never doubted that Kelly would have chemistry with just about anyone, I was confused at the jumps some people took from noticing said chemistry.

Once again: In psychology, the word “chemistry” is used when referencing natural mutual rapport between two or more people. When two people have “chemistry” they effortlessly feel a natural connection with each other, even if they’ve just met.

Once I finally went on YT and watched the show for myself, I could totally understand what the whole hullabaloo was about. Certainly, the scenes shared by Kelly and Roger got and kept everyone’s attention. They did not fall flat. They did not bore. *cough JIZ cough* Kelly and Roger played well off of each other’s strengths and certainly off of each other’s characters. Give it up for Kelly, especially since it seems that our Port Charles will really be Port Llanview, and if our GH faves can’t play well off RC’s OLTL faces, they are in trouble!

*applause for Kelly’s mojo*

I want to make sure that everyone understands one thing: NO ONE IS MORE PROUD OF KELLY THAN I AM.

HOWEVER, where I seemed to get lost was where some people were seemingly “shipping” Sam and Todd, not just appreciating Kelly and Roger as actors.

Uuuummmm, for lack of a better reaction: WHAT THE DEVIL? (trying to keep it clean)

Todd Manning, a.k.a. Scum of the Earth, is the person who handed Téa’s dead baby over to Heather to leave for Sam to find, and took our living, breathing, Baby JJ out of the planter’s box, and out of Sam’s life, and into Téa’s, so that he could avoid being screamed at and hated even more (because he was already hated) by Téa. How heartless, cruel, vile, and UNFORGIVABLE is that?

Lest we forget, Todd “Scum of the Earth” Manning then stood there with Sam’s beautiful baby boy, and witnessed Sam grieve as she had to hand over what she believed was her dead baby to a nurse, all while crying that her baby should be with her; not angels.  All before he rushed Téa and Sam’s perfectly healthy baby out of PC and back to Llanview!

Since, Todd has heard from various PC residents that Sam had already lost a child, that she wanted this baby more than anything, and that her loss is devastating. He has also since seen Sam at her baby’s funeral, where nothing and no one could console her. What does “Scum of the Earth” do with that? Oh yes, he promised “to do whatever little thing he can to make it up to Sam.” 

Hey, Ass! There is no little thing you can do to make it up to Sam! All you can do is tell her what you’ve done, so that she can get her baby back!

Furthermore, I am not sure what he meant by “whatever little thing he can do” to make it up to Sam, when she basically had to beg for him to give her a job! I loathe Todd. I hated him on OLTL, but I LOATHE him on GH after what he did to Sam!

To see people who loved JaSam just a short while ago, and still love Sam, “ship” her with this lying psychopath who stole her baby and ripped her heart out, and still isn’t moved by seeing the gaping hole in her chest where it used to be, is just beyond understanding to me! This is not even to mention that Todd is a rapist, and Sam, the “rape victim” now knows this. As I am sure anyone whose life has ever been touched by rape, in any way, shape, or form, can tell you, a known rapist is someone who will always awaken all of the emotions they felt after their own rape. The very thought of it turns my stomach and gives me the creeps! It’s not something to be taken lightly!

WHO THE HELL COULD WANT THAT FOR SAM??? *screams in frustration*

And people are upset with Jason for what he’s done? GMAFB! Sam deserves better, not worse!

I will tell you that the day I stopped being a Young and The Restless fan was when they had Sharon, whose live child had been switched by Adam with Ashley’s dead one, become romantically involved with Adam. The day I stopped watching was when Sharon, then finally knowing what Adam had done, still chose to be with him. And Adam wasn’t even a rapist. WHO DOES THAT? WHAT KIND OF MOTHER COULD EVER FORGIVE THAT?

I could never support even the thought of having Sam paired with Todd! I can totally get behind Kelly being written as the lead we’ve always known her to be. I can appreciate that she knows just how to play opposite RC’s big boys in order to make the scenes stand out. I can even accept that as professionals, Kelly and Roger “have a natural mutual rapport.”

But I will not sell my beloved Samantha McCall Morgan short. She deserves someone who loves, protects, and cherishes her. Sure, not all of Jason’s actions have always fallen under those categories, but no one can doubt that he does. COMPARED TO HOW TODD HAS HURT OUR FAIR SAMANTHA, JASON’S CHARACTER FLAWS AND FAILURES ARE FREAKIN’ BLIPS ON THE SCREEN! I don’t care how angry we get about Jason sharing scenes with Liz (which fall so flat they don’t even warrant a mention), Sam will never deserve the filth that Todd will bring to her or Baby JJ’s life! NEVER!

I only wish that everyone would take all of the energy they put into talking about how disappointed they are in the way JaSam’s story has been crapped on, and use it to demand better for our couple! If everyone refused to take this lying down, and took a stand against Ron Carlivati’s recycling of OLTL 2011, things might have to change! I can only imagine the power behind a movement like that!

Things on the horizon look bleak and stormy for our favorite couple of all time. I wonder just how much of a beating RC will steer Jason and Sam through as he purposely heads right into the eye of the storm. I wonder if Bella Mafia can still serve as that lighthouse in the middle of the darkness you guys have so often told me it has been in the past. A lighthouse can only help if it helps those tossed around and lost choose to look towards the light to find their way. If they continue to stare into the darkness, the lighthouse serves no purpose at all.

I guess I need to decide whether or not Bella Mafia is still serving a purpose.

*wipes tears*

    Hi Angelique,
    I usually wait until I get home frm work to post but after this Blog how could I wait! Do not ever think that this Blog and your wonderful insights don’t matter! If it was not for GH BELLA MAFIA I would have walked away from GH allready! To have to witness the destruction of Sam and Jason has been to much! But because of HERE I get a chance to voice and vent! I take a deep breath and HOLD ON to GH because of this connection here! Please, everyone is going to spin this all from different perspectives! I think the negativity is just a way to deal with the frustration of watching GH lately! People are turning on Jasam together and separately! But that does not happen here! We come here to share about the BEST COUPLE ON DAYTIME EVER! RC has forced this angst between Sam and Jason! And what hurts the most is how he has written for the son they share together! This so was not what we wanted for them. Sam and Jason have a son together and don’t even know it!
    Regardless of how this s/l goes YOU remember this: I would have been lost w/o a Light and then one day I decide to come here just to look around NEVER did I imagine to find such a Jewel! It is a pleasure for me after a long day of life to visit here with all of you! The Joy here comes from you Angelique and I hope that will not change!

    June 28, 2012 at 6:27 am

    • Thanks for the early comment! And thanks for always being so supportive and encouraging!
      I am so glad that you can come here and vent and share your thoughts! I am also happy
      that Bella Mafia and this family we’ve created is giving you the strength to hold on –
      just like it is for me!
      You made me cry there at the end of your post – but they were happy tears!
      Thanks again!
      Hugs…

    Angelique!!! You sound loke you are abandoning ship!! Don’t!!! We or anyone else don’t want Kelly with Roger!!! She is now and forever Jason’s wife!!! RC is just trying to boost his OLTL characters. Sam would never be attracted to Todd. She will find her baby boy and Jason will go after Todd and Heather. Keep the faith sister!! You have been our guiding light in this storm we call RC! You guide us through to calm waters! Please don’t give up

    June 28, 2012 at 6:33 am

    • I will not abandon ship!
      I will be not this thing until we reach our destination or until everyone else has gotten off!
      🙂
      Thanks, Kathy!

    Wow so you are really fired up about this. Well hopefully I do not get banished for saying this but I Just watched yesterday’s epi. I can’t help it even though he stole our baby, I like or better yet I don’t hate Todd. Please don’t virtual choke me for saying that. I did enjoy the scene with Sam. KeMo would have chem with a blank wall. But not even for a second did a thought run through my mind that they should be a couple. Ill. Yuck. After tearing Jasam apart if the writers don’t put them back together I want a great guy for Sam. I don’t even want her with John – wouldn’t mind friendship with John but that’s it. I would want a nice, sexy, strong man for her that would do no wrong when it came to her. And for Jason to be jealous. But I choose to believe RC is not that crazy to keep Jasam permanently apart so I need not worry about that. The Morgan reunion shall happen

    Now for the rest of today’s show. Jason is an ass – he keeps pouring his heart out about Sam to the wrong person. It’s annoying as hell. The hug was so unnecessary, as much of his encounters and conversations with ole girl is. Spin might get F’d up. Seems like he got Olivia in trouble too. I hope he warns her that the crazy broad might be on to them.
    I guess AG is on his annual vacation I don’t know what the deal is with Tracy – guess a woman scorned…

    And I of course love Sam. I know I already mentioned her but the character and KeMo are just so awesome she is worthy of multiple praise.

    It will be alright Angelique. RC won’t go there with our girl. Now deep breathes. Good. That’s it. Ok, now close your eyes, count to ten and think happy Jasam thoughts

    June 28, 2012 at 6:39 am

    • Kathy glagowski

      Jason is an ass but really,aren’t most men at times!! He loves Sam so much and he feels so guilty!! I think he wants to believe her about the baby being alive. He does want to find him and bring him home to her. But that alone would not fix them. It would be a great bandaid but it wouldn’t fix them. Jason was not there for her,he couldn’t promise to love her child. Why? Is it because he couldn’t protect her and the baby was a reminder?who knows the reason. It was because RC wanted them apart so he could showcase HIS OLTL characters, John,Tea and Todd!!!and of course to put Kelly Monaco out in front. We cant give up on our favorite couple even though it looks bleak right now. Baby Morgan is going to be the beacon that brings his parents safely through the storm!

      • True that, Kathy!
        This is all RC’s fault!
        I agree with you that we cannot give up now, especially with Baby JJ out there!
        We’ll keep fighting…together!
        Thanks for reading and commenting!

        Angelique, love your posts so much. You give my Jasam heart hope! You kmow I was thinking about them as I always do(my daughter says I’m addicted) and I remembered when Jason wasgoing to prison to be with Michael. Sam took him to a cabin and he gave her a compass necklace,hesaid he would always find hisway back toher and that is. Thetruth! She is his true north! I forgot that in all my angst with the kiss etc. i don’t like toread spoilers butsometimes they pop up on my FB page and also Twitter. Your blog iswhat keeps me sane and yesterday I said. If. You’re upset then we are in trouble. So glad that so many of our family came out for a pep talk. The thing that really keeps me going is knowing baby Morgan is alive and that Jason is his father. That has to mean something thatRC let us know that!! I thinkhe isverycruel in his writing by keeping Jasam apart and putting other people in their way. Maybe the kiss will wake up Jason enough to fight for Sam and make Sam realize he feelings for John are attached. To herloss of the baby and not romance and be open to accept Jason again. He did her wrong and it wouldn’t be right for her to just forgivehim with one look of his blue eyes!!! Butto kiss another while still married is cheating and that’s what upset me so much. Sam is not a cheater,it cheapens their relationship. Of course we don’t know if its a peck on the cheek or a passionate one,we haveto see it played out. The Jiz kiss I believe is a dream on Liz’s part. I really don’tbelieve there will be any sex involved. Anyway keep the light burning for our favorite couple! I willbe at. The Jersey. Shore from7/6-7/11 and will. Watch when I get. Back. Home to CT. I will watch until then with stress ball in hand. Love you and all our BellaMafia family!
        Always,
        Kathy G.

        June 29, 2012 at 6:33 am

    • Thanks, love, for the encouragement!
      I agree that Kelly and Roger have chemistry, but I also agree that seeing them as a couple
      was not even on my radar.
      You will have to occasionally remind me that RC is not that crazy because I have my doubts! LOL!
      No matter what, we will keep holding on together!
      Thanks for your enthusiasm and support all the time!
      It’s like my morning coffee!
      You ROCK!

  6. jasam forever

    Hey Angelique,
    Love the details on Chemistry, Jiz fans need to read this because they so don’t know the meaning of the word! Kelly has chemistry with everyone, unlike other characters who seem to only have with 2 people on the entire show!
    Angelique I see your passion, but I too like Lara stumbled upon this page and I have since not been able to let go, you guys have become my online family… Bella Mafia is a safe haven in this chaotic time & ridiculous s/l. You keep us sane & grounded, focused on our beloved JaSam, maybe now is our turn to help you which I am sure we all don’t mind, we are family we have each other’s backs, even if it’s a small contingent of us, we never let each other down. I won’t let you give up just like you never let us give up.

    That being said, I too saw my twitter line light up about jiz and Sam & Todd. About Jiz most they were talking about how pathetic Liz is, which you all know my take on that character. I was happy to see Jason make a comment about finding the baby and putting his family back together. Even though he is portrayed as an ass I still really love Jason & JaSam. I didn’t see the need for the hug either & her telling him be careful, bitch please!

    YOU TUBE comments are ridiculous, I saw some on SimplyGH … WOW people never cease to amaze me. If you guys get a chance read the comments on SimplyGH for yesterday’s show. I read the comments some people made me so damn angry about Kelly not being able to match up to Todd’s acting skills & she should take lessons from a pro… if RH is so damn freaking good then maybe he should graduate from soaps, he is apparently too good for soaps! Then I saw a comment about Sam not having fans & basically she has to thank Jason for her fan base I was like WTH! I swear some people just talk because they have a space between their noses & chin! Ugh!

    It’s sad that we have to have GH characters face off with OLTL characters in order to secure a bid on THEIR show … GH! This OLTL thing is really getting out of hand for my liking. I hate Todd, always have on OLTL and as I said I hate him MORE on GH!!! I don’t care what little he does to help Sam, the only damn way you should be helping Sam is giving her back her baby. I really don’t like him at all. I hope Jason kills him for his part to play in Sam’s baby switch. I am so fed up of RH praise like he is the best thing that ever happened since slice bread!!! I want so much more for Sam, Todd Manning & Sam … you have to be crazy! Send him Carly’s way I don’t care I would never ‘ship’ them at all. I liked John on OLTL but I don’t on GH. I don’t mind him being friends/siblings with Sam but nothing else. You had your time for romance on PC, this is GH…

    Tracy/Anna – IMO I think they are too grown to fighting over Luke sorry but its gross. I would like to see Anna with John actually; weird but I like them together.

    I have my reservations about RC’s intentions towards JaSam I believe he is breaking them down so much that their fans are going to hate either character all so he could make room for his OLTL characters. JaSam fan base have been jumping ship all over the place which is really sad. As I said Jiz fan base its either they want them together die hard or they don’t want ‘this’ Jason for her. Not JaSam, its Mcbam, its Sam, Its Jason & now its Todd & Sam… WTH! I hate this; I don’t trust RC’s intentions at all.

    We are family on Bella Mafia, we don’t let each other give up, its JaSam forever…

    • kathydid53

      We are family!!I love that. We are Jason and Sam’s family too!!We want them together with their baby boy!I think Jason will finally see that Liz wants him!He’s going to feel bad about leading her on but he’s going to tell her he wants Sam and only Sam!!! I believe Sam wants him too!!!She didn’t seem all that angru when she told Todd about her husband and his part in the baby’s “death”. I think she let him believe divorce as a cover to get him to hire her.Hope so anyway. she shouldn’t be making any emotional decisions right now. She needs time to heal. right now she’s on the trail of her son. Get jason on that trail too! As for John—- he likes Sam but I feel he has more integrity than to be a rebound romance. I like him but not for Sam. As a friend like Carly is for Jason. I really think RC knows what the fans want and he isn’t going to keep them seperated for long. ):

    • TheNamesAnyone

      I know, I was on SimplyGH. I don’t know how Sam hate is even on there. SimplyGH is a Jasam Fan! channel. At least the videos posted there lead me to believe so. How did Sam haters take over the comment sections?

      I found this Angelique’s Blog from someone who posted a comment about this blog on there. I forgot who. But, I’m glad I did find that comment I’m loving the Bella Mafia family. I hope she doesn’t stop the blog she seems upset.

      June 28, 2012 at 1:20 pm

    • We ARE family, thank you for that. I am so thankful to have been adopted in to the fold. Let me ask; please don’t be disappointed in Tracy and Anna for fighting for love because of their age. if you haven’t yet, you will one day – almost overnight, realize youth is not only fleeting, but it has left the FREAKIN building! I suggest we should be disappointed as women of every age that any one of us would fight for, or even wast a moment of their precious lives on a Scoundrel who aside from his charming personality, is truly nothing more than a con artist, thief, user – looser, and I will never forget or forgive a rapist!

      • jasamforever

        I don’t know i just think they are reminding me of sam and liz in 2007 i hate to see women fighting over men. I am not a huge fan of luke like some but i really liked him with tracy. I don’t like the anna/luke pairing too much as i said something about her & mc bain i like. I don’t like how they have tracy fighting over luke like this making her seem pathetic.

        June 28, 2012 at 7:04 pm

      • @jasamforever, no need to apologize, anything that reminds you of Liz in 07 simply can’t be good! lol

        This s/l is really getting ridiculous and I think it will get a lot worst before it gets better… we have to hang in there … together!!!

    • Oh my, what a beautiful and heartfelt post!
      Thanks so very much for the kindness and support you are lending me with your words!
      I agree with you on so many things!
      I don’t trust this jerk either, but I agree that we must keep letting him know that
      we are breathing down his neck, and will not support his pathetic redo of his cancelled show!
      I was a little down yesterday, but I am most definitely not out.
      Together, as a Bella Mafia Family, we will hold on!
      Thanks for reading and commenting!
      Both mean the world to me!

  7. Lara

    Morning Everyone!
    Angelique, please, please, please do not give up!! I know everyone previously has said it, but this blog is incredibly important!! I can only speak for myself, but it’s become such a cathartic place for me. We watch our soaps as a form of escapism and unfortunately, the writers have deemed that instead of making us happy they were going to drag us through the mud for what amounts to be a neverending onslaught of despair! So your blog has become our new escapism! I look forward to your posts with excitement tantamount to a child’s because I know that I’m not alone, that you and so many others are feeling the same thing and we’ve really formed our own little ‘family’ of sorts right here. Having a place to come and honestly express our concerns, fears, and joys is the best therapy any of us could have asked for. I know the blog is for GH, but it’s also allowed people to open up and share bits of themselves with a community that I feel truely understands and appreciates them. The gratitude for which is so great that I don’t think there is enough words to thank you with.
    With that being said, your passion behind today’s blog is so true and wonderfully said! I did enjoy her scenes with Todd. I thought they were funny and I enjoyed watching him sweat! He was so nervous being around her that he was having a case of verbal diarrhea! Why else would he start spilling his life to her as she sat there looking highly confused (albeit amused)? But, through the whole scene not for once did I EVER think of them being together! You’re right the idea is repulsive and trust me I started shutting down everyone on the GH Facebook page who were suggesting it!! To think of hooking her up with the man that took the MOST important thing away from her is OUTRAGEOUS😡I think people mistook the rhythmic flow of their banter as some kind of foreplay, which SERIOUSLY it wasn’t! I just think the dialogue was written well and that Kelly and Todd (I don’t know the other guys name) knocked it out of the park! Like It4bama said, Kelly would have chemistry with a blank wall!!
    I know the status of Sam and Jason’s relationship is really bumming us all out! I have to admit when she told Todd yesterday that her marriage was falling apart, that hit pretty hard, but what someone opened my eyes to yesterday was that she really said that because she needed to sell it to Todd. And yes, we know the state of their marriage is in question and we can see their both grieving for each other and the baby, but a GOOD change IS coming, it’s just taking its sweet ass time getting here! I’ll share something that someone told me after I lost my son, when I was so done with all the, “I’m so sorry’s,” and the “He’s in a better place.” She said, “sometimes it takes the worst pain, to bring about the best change,” and honestly I think that, that’s what the writers are doing with Sam. We HATE seeing her grieve for yet another lost child and now for a husband that she no longer trusts, but with all that they are making her stronger and more forthright.They’ve really expanded her outside of Jason’s shadow and now she’s all over the canvas because they WANT her to be a lead like she was was meant to be!
    Angelique, YOU gave us the strength to HOLD ON and to NOT GIVE UP on our beloved couple!! Remember the Team meeting post?! As you were there for us, we will be there for you!!

    P.S- Thanks for the psychology refresher, I felt like I was in Med school again!!

    June 28, 2012 at 9:10 am

    • Lara, I just wanted to post once more to tell you that it has meant the world to me
      that you think us enough of a family that you would share your own personal loss with us!
      What a story of inspiration and hope!
      It’s people like you who make me type through lack of sleep, pain and general disappointment
      with what’s happening onscreen!
      There are no words to express that kind of gratitude, but I hope THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF
      MY JASAM LOVING HEART will do!
      Much Love,
      Angelique

    Hi partner, I love your blog today because I am having the same problem and struggling with what to do too. After yesterday and last night on twitter I am just about ready to throw in the towel. Before anyone jumps me, hear me out, I love my JaSam and I will fight for them to the end and I used to love my GH, but the key words here is used to, and my GH. Because you know what its not my GH anymore not since RC/FV took over it ceased being My GH that day. So I have to asked myself why am I fighting to save a show that is not even ours anymore. Besides a few actors left, what else is ours. The EP and HW, breakdown writers, make-up, music dept, everything is OLTL. And now we have to lose more of our actors just so they can bring on more OLTL rejects. You know I am sorry that OLTL got cancelled but this is our show and it is a slap in the face to the GH fans that have stuck with this show no matter what. They got to have their ending with their people and their history, but we are not ever going to get that because we now have their rejects and their stories on our show. I dare anyone name me one storyline on the show right now that was not on OLTL. This is all OLTL over again. What is so sad is these two delusional idiots believed their stories were so great when they were on OLTL that they have brought their old tired shit over here. What they don’t realize is the reasons their ratings were up at the end was because their fans were trying to save their show and that is why they tuned in. What they don’t realize is that if we don’t even recognize our show anymore, why should we the GH fans fight to save it. Why should we fight to save OLTL all over again, they ruined our show because they couldn’t get over losing theirs and that is total BS, I don’t know about you guys but I refuse to help them save my show just so they can turn it into OLTL.

      Now in the fall GH goes to 2pmEST!!That is the old OLTL time slot.I don’t like all these characters coming to our Gh eith but like it or not,they are here!!!I never watched OLTL but I read the soap magazines and I see the stories are the same. I too feel that the show is headed for the same fate as AMC&OLTL. I will continue to watch because I love Jason and Sam and I want to see them reunite with their son

      I for one, have watched OLTL (Not as long as GH.) I also like Todd, not this Todd, Victor as Todd. People might bash me in their heads for this. But! seriously! what character besides, Sam, Jason, Carly, Alexis, Spin, Sonny, Luke, Michael, Maxie, Robin, Patrick and Tracy are worth keeping? Lulu and Dante do nothing of interest. Liz, don’t get me started. Kristina, stupid and annoying. Steve and Olivia, barely gets airtime, same with Monica and Molly.(Which renders them to pretty much non-existent.) The rest are new extra characters. Or character that hasn’t been present in ages. So I’m not having a problem with them getting rid of characters that pretty much offered nothing to begin with. I haven’t been concerned with characters since they killed off Emily, Georgie, Alan, and Justice. Got rid of Ric. tossed out Lucky and Ethan. Face it this show hasn’t been GH in a long time. So many GH characters are missing, besides the ones I’ve named. If they’re keeping the characters listed, and they are. Then GH is pretty much here. Because, those listed characters are GH.

      When I found out OLTL was coming over I was happy. I thought the mix-up would create something new. I didn’t know we were going to get their writers. This is my problem! These fucking writers are ruining the show. I thought the writers would put the best of GH and OLTL to create this super soap opera. Instead they made it into OLTL 2.0 I encourge people to not be mad about OLTL be made about the writers. I say petition their asses to get new ones.

      I hear what you are saying and I feel the same way sometimes, I wonder sometimes if the ABC wants the writers to fail in order to get cancelled … i don’t know my thoughts run wild sometimes. I am just fed up of the OLTL s/ls characters on GH. So i feel you AB.

    • Hi, Partner!
      I know you are struggling with the same things, I saw your Twitter post that night, and cried
      with you! What a disappointment to see some JaSammers turn on the couple we claimed to fight for
      til the bitter end!
      I will tell you this, I agree with so much of what you said in both rants (LOL), especially the
      cheating part, but I just don’t think I can keep going without you! Your vids get me through insomnia,
      but they also get me through those moments of wondering if this fight is still worth it.
      I always walk away from your vids CONVINCED that they are!
      I am hoping that we can get through this together…as partners. Will you think about it?
      Please? With sugar on top? 🙂
      Love you to pieces!
      Angelique

    Ok that is my tirade about the show in general, now is my tirade about what they have done to my beloved JaSam. As I was watching some of my vids last night trying to get some inspiration to keep on vidding, because right now I am really struggling with whether or not I want to. If I decide not to vid anymore I hope you guys understand and don’t hate me. I will always love my JaSam, but you know what this sadly is not my JaSam I don’t even recognize them anymore. How do we go from the other day at the cemetery and saying that we always love each other to what we have to face next week. On twitter last night everyone was in an uproar about the McBam kiss next week and I don’t blame them. Sam just lost her son and is not with the love of her life because she holds him responsible for the death of her child, and she is mourning and hurting, but yet they have her and John kissing next week WTH.The Sam I fell in love with would never, ever cheat on her husband, because Sam is not a cheater. Even 06/07 when they had that awful SOS they were apart when they slept with other people, this time they are married. Its like my mom explained to me last night even a kiss if you or married and committed is cheating it doesn’t matter if neither one sleeps with someone else, kissing is cheating too. Now we know what is going to happen Jason will either see it or someone will tell him about it and he will either kiss or sleep with the Ho and we have SOS part 2 again and the first time was bad enough. But this time would be so much worse because they are married this time. So they have just made JaSam cheaters. Just so they can get their rocks off on McBam but lets face it this is where they were going from the start ever since they brought John to town just so they can recreate Caleb and Livvie from PC, I urge all JaSammers to boycott July the fourth and sen a loud message that we will watch this BS anymore until they give us back our JaSam. Sorry to go off on my tirade but I just had to get it off my chest. Unless I change my mind my last JaSam vid will probably be this weekend. Love all my fellow JaSammer and my partner is crime , but I just don’t know if I can go on.

      Oh gosh, et tu, @aproditebeauty? Before you throw in the towel, please read my comment below because it applies to you, too, babygirl.

      June 28, 2012 at 10:01 am

    • kathydid53

      Someone told me they thought the kiss was a dream that Jason has!!I hope this is right,because like you said Sam and Jason are not cheaters!!They are married this time. Last time in ’06,they were broken up. Liz was married though,Jason was drunk from seeing Sam. Hopefully he’ll have better restraint!!I actually don’t think he’ll cheat because he loves Sam too much and they are still married. Take a break from your vids for awhile. What’s the use in watching JaSam love right now,it only gets the true fans more upset because we are not seeing that love right now and don’t know when we’ll see it again. To me John’s only use is to bring the baby back. He is the Llanview/ Tea connection. and yes, I read he would be gone all summer,now I read he would watch fireworks with Sam on July 4th. A promo shows him and Jason on a plane. I think they are both working together to find Joe Jr. Hopefully John will tell Jason about where Tea found Todd with “her son” and get them both thinking and working together. This is probably wishful thinking on my JaSam part. but Jason did tell Liz he wished Sam were right because he would be out there looking for her son to bring him back to her!!! As for Sam and Todd!!!Get out of here!!! Kelly Monaco can play off anyone!!I do like Roger,he plays a great bad guy but Sam belongs with Jason!As for John, the writers are trying to recapture Caleb/Livvie and its not right,this is GH not the defunct Port Charles even though that’s where the story takes place. He is John not Caleb. They have chemistry because they’ve worked together before,it’s easy for them. He said so in an interview in SOD. She works well with everyone, Alexis, Molly,Sonny even the new Kristina. We will keep the faith and when they reunite with the baby you will make some awesome new videos!!!

      I agree with you 100% if we start boycotting maybe they will take us seriously. I call and email daily. I love Jasam and the writers have written them so OFC. They would never cheat on each other especially since they are married. I can’t watch them destroyed again. I stopped watching when Jason and Liz were together and they destroyed Sam’s charcter. It really pisses me off because we don’t know how much longer this show is going to be on and they are wasting valuable time. Jasam need to be reunited NOW with there baby. I will keep calling and emailing but I don’t think I can keep watching. I will not give them the ratings they need to keep destroying the greatest couple on daytime.

      June 28, 2012 at 4:14 pm

      • You said all the right things!
        We must not give them ratings for the destruction of our show! You are so right – JaSam
        would never dishonor their vows! Ugh!
        Thanks for being a reader, and for sticking to the commitment to call and email daily!
        I love to hear that!
        Keep it up, friend!

    Hi Angelique,

    I love Twitter, but it’s noise. You can turn it up or turn it down as you like. You’re always telling us to stay away from spoilers because they usually turn out to be false. Same goes for anything you see on these social media outlets. If I took what I see on Twitter for face value then Justin Bieber would be President and “Call Me Maybe” would already be on the top of the list of grammy nominations. IT’S ALL A LIE.

    I saw the show yesterday, and it didn’t even cross my mind that Todd and Sam would start a romance. I guess it’s because I know Todd from OLTL, but Sam is most certainly not his type. Not to bash my girl, but she’s not rich or refined or educated enough for his delusional ass. Todd knows he’s trash so he latches on to women who give him “polish” (even though we all know you can’t polish a turd). He would have totally dismissed Sam as soon as she walked into his office looking for job in street clothes if he wasn’t so guilt-ridden. IT’S ALL A LIE ON TOP OF MORE LIES.

    The only thing I saw online was from the youtube comments section where people were bickering about who was a better actor, KM or RH. It was the first scene they had a conversation, and yet people were already making judgements. Based on one scene??? Like you can compare RH’s near-mastery of comic timing to KM’s recent dramatic scenes that received praise even from some self-proclaimed “Sam haters.” Please. IT’S ALL A LIE, MY DEAR.

    Being lifted up to the status of ‘lighthouse’ or ‘a beacon of light’ may be a bit daunting and burdensome. That you question this just makes you humble and, therefore, worthy of such praise in my book. What I wish for you is that you not start second-guessing yourself. Take your own advice: stop listening to the noise. If it helps, then put blinders on to all social media for a while and keep running your own race. Remember that IT’S ALL A BUNCH OF SILLY LIES, and soon you’ll find yourself, in spite of your doubts, standing above it all. Shining brightly. 😉

    June 28, 2012 at 9:50 am

    • Hi, I decided to first type a quick note of thanks to you before I put my blinders on!
      I stay away from all of those spoiler sites, but the Twitter crap about Todd and Sam got
      to me because they were JaSam fans, and I felt it like a kick in the gut.
      You gave great advice, and I will try to take it and run my own race! (Superb advice!)
      Thanks again for reading and commenting!
      Hugs…

    Bella Mafia “Service a Purpose”!! At times its the “Only” Light we have!! Especially thru these rocky JaSam times!!!!

    I guess I need to decide whether or not GH is still serving a purpose “for me”. As I watch this JaSam story.. Im reminded WHY I was a “casual” OLTL’er.. Not sure that RC/FV tell stories that I enjoy to watch. *Sighs* I wish I could say that I think they’ve thrown all the crap at JaSam that they are going to. But I think far from it. 😦

    So for now… Im still watching… Just not enjoying so much!!

    June 28, 2012 at 10:31 am

    • LOL! You coined the perfect phrase! I was a “casual” OlTLer, too!
      Thanks for the encouragement and the support!
      I am not enjoying GH as much either. Hopefully it gets back on course!

    Angelique…please don’t let yourself get down, I can sense the despiration in your tone today, and I want you to know that I love this blog! I can’t wait to see what you are going to post daily and the insight that you are going to bring forth about all of the characters on the Port Charles canvas. I thought this episode was riddled with hope and had some great foreshadowing; I saw potential in the storyline to come in the future.

    Sam is following her instincts and she is right on the money–because she now has that superpowered motherly instinct! This week has been very productive for McCall and Jackal. Jason also took the time to emphasize in conversation with Liz that he can’t stop thinking about Sam saying that the baby she held at the garden shed was ‘not hers’, which remember Jason doesn’t deal in the abstract, he is very literal and he is focusing on that small detail that will ignite his search for their Baby. Jason’s instincts are starting to kick in and he is thinking that he would give anything to put ‘their’ family back together. All of this angst is going to lead to one very pointed conclusion–the discovery that the Baby is alive and that the Baby is Jason’s. Perhaps even this mission down to New Orleans will lead to John McBain saying somthing that will trigger Jason to think Sam was right at the garden shed. I keep thinking about how many problems Jason and Sam went through with her first pregnancy, remember she ran away–a couple of times. Then Sam moved out after the baby died, but they found their way back to teach other. Today Jason and Sam are seven years stronger, in love and bonded in a way that no other couple is on GH. I don’t think that this will end badly, our characters are too invested in each other.

    When the glorious event occurs that Sam, Jason and the Baby are reunited everything will fall away and become secondary; their nuclear family will be blissfully happy and hopefully spend some time in the cabin together bonding. I cannot see how the writers would bring us such a beautiful proposal, wedding and honeymoon(with the conception of the baby) and not allow for anytype of happily ever after–at least for a day or two.

    Have faith, I do.

    Hugs,
    Dawn

    p.s. I have a strong feeling that Jason will bring the Baby to Sam, or they will reunite looking for the Baby because he was not their for the birth. Perhaps he will even by privvy to the fact that he is the father–ok I may have gone to far, but a girl can dream, can’t she.

    • Kathy glagowski

      I like you thoughts! I was reading a tweet from Jasamfan7 that said Sam and John kiss on the docks! Someone else said maybe itwas a dream butthe tweet said it was in SOD magazine!!! Also that RC likes the Jason/ Liz relationship! I was so upset after reading that! Its crap but then I read your reply to Angie and it calmed me down a bit. Butyou said about the writers bringing us the proposal marriage and honeymoon! It wasn’t these writers! They don’t seem to care about that. They want their OLTL characters to shine and Jason to have the back seat!!! But my one saving grace is that we know the baby is alive and is Jason’s! That has to mean something or else RC would have kept the baby as Franco’s. That’s what keeps me watching! Somedays it watch with an emesis basin near by,other days a stress ball other days tissues but I watch and hope for the day Sam finds out her baby boy IS alive like she always felt. Like you I hope Jason is the one to bring him home.
      I too felt hope hearing him tell the ho that he wishes Sam were right ,he would search for er son and bring him back to her!!!

        People need to stop reading those magazines. The real spoilers are on General Hospital Happenings website. These spoilers are never wrong, seriously never. It said nothing about a kiss between Sam and John. However they will spend 4th of July together, and Jason would be jealous.

        June 28, 2012 at 5:06 pm

      Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts with all of us, but especially me.
      I am going to try to take my cue from all of you – and I will try to keep
      fighting for our couple!
      Thanks for all of the reminders about how much Jason and Sam have already overcome.
      They always found their way back to each other; of that you are so right.
      I am hoping for all of the things you are! Let’s hope RC gets his head out of his a$$
      long enough to realize he’s headed down the wrong path.
      Thanks again!
      Hugs…

    Angelique, don’t stop writing. This blog gives me hope when it seems that there isn’t any. I watched Sam and Todd yesterday. Sam did well but when I looked at Todd all I could see is a rapist, liar and baby stealer. How anyone could think of putting Sam with Todd is beyond me. I don’t like how this storyline is going. There is much buzz about Sam and John kissing and a replay of SOS. I was hoping that RC would not go there but allow the characters to grow and not make the same mistake twice. We shall see how all this plays out. BUT in spite of your doubts, you are a beacon during the storm. PLEASE CONTINUE TO SHINE YOUR LIGHT.

    We simply have to hold on! I have you guys here and the gals over at C&D that keep me sane. We have to keep fighting for Jason and Sam!
    I agree that Roger & Kelly have chemistry, but I dont think that Sam would ever fall for Todd!!!!!!!
    This is just another bunch of Jizzers trying to put Sam with anyone other than Jason. Well I for one refuse to accept Sam with anyone except Jason. (Well, I liked Lucky’s GV with Sam, now that was great chemistry!) Kelly Monaco is a sexy woman that has chemistry with everyone. Honestly she has more chemistry with Laura Wright than Steve and Becky have!

    We HAVE to hang on to Jasam! Please dont give up Angie!

    I think many of us stumbled upon your blog, or were referred here by friends of like minds (wink wink you know who you are) and we stick together. I read the blog as soon as it comes thru my IB, and pour over every word. You write what so many of us feel, dont loose hope. Dont let the Lizzard fans win, if we do then all that fanfare last year for Daytimes current wedding of this century will have been for nothing!
    We must fight for JASAM & fight for GH!

    June 28, 2012 at 11:00 am

    Angelique, We Jasam fans need you to be strong. I just started looking on this blog it would be a shame to see you give up. I didn’t know about Bella Mafia back in 07 during Jiz. Now, I can’t stop reading and posting. This site give me hope in my Sam and Jason. It’s gotten ridiculous with all these “Sam Haters” honestly they are jealous of Sam’s ability to demand attention without even trying. This is the one place where I can express my love for Sam and not be ripped into by obsessive Jason fans or Liz fans or Jiz fans.

      This blog makes me feel like I belong to something important I really look fwd to all the insights and I can’t stop reading as well. Here you don’t get rip to shreds by all fans!!! not only Jason or Liz fans. Case in point I spoke about Anna & Tracy too old to be fighting over Luke… Kathy Federico PoetfedericoDJ replied voicing her opinion about age. Honestly, that was so classy & respectful, could you imagine someone replying to that on twitter or youtube!!!! Kathy so classy & I appreciate your views. I love Bella Mafia & I would like this blog to stay around a long time, so we all have to be here for each other.

      You girls rock, love my online family (not sure if there are any guys who post, so if there are, girls and guys you rock!!) sorry if I got mushy or cheesy lol.

      It seems like we are in for a very emotional / eventful / rotten summer so we really need to be here for one another if we have to make it through this! Some of us made it through 2007 without the blessing of Bella Mafia, kudos to you but now that we have each other, we can do this together. We must unite as a strong jasam fan base (look at the delusional jizzers … at least we have something to look forward to baby JJ/Jasam loving each other & its not all made up in our minds).

      Come on … its jasamforever,

  18. Dear Friends,
    Please don’t give up, anyone! I am not posting,but had to come on, just to say we need our GH and JaSam to give us a break from reality. And it is so true, it’s a farce just now, with no resemblance to the show we all
    love so much, and especially our couple. But we cannot let these upstart writers destroy what we all have loved for so long. We must fight back and tell them, again and again what we know to be true, that Jason,Sam and their love story is the reason we have stayed thus far,and it is high time they fixed this mess. Perhaps I have no right to speak out, as I am not watching,just reading right now. Reality is my priority but I do still care, and having you all is such a blessing that I selfishly ask that you hang on and fight back. This blog, and you all, are more than “soap fans”. You are friends, and the story we are trying to save is worth our time and effort. Love you all………..Sarah

    June 28, 2012 at 1:50 pm

    • Sarah,hope you are doing well!!We are family!!I love this blog because it is a place to vent and share. Yes we must hang in there. I get so angry when I read these spoilers and blogs!what are the writers doing with our couple?They didn’t even let them be happy for a month!1they’ve thrown so much at them in such a short time just to showcase Kelly’s talents and OLTL characters? Well I’m sorry they could have showed Kelly’s talents in other ways without wrecking her marriage and killing her baby boy!!!. But hang on we must because the baby is not dead and he is Jason’s son so that must mean the writers will get them back together somehow!!!! We have to just hang in there!!

  19. An-gel-ique! and you too Aprodiebeauty, I’m about to pull a Cher in “Moonstruck” on ya’ll – give you a good SMACK and say,
    “Snap out of it!” You better shine your brilliant light, and You better keep working on those inspiring vids.!

    I’m no light house, but Let me shed my light on this subject! …”you cain’t be a beacon if your light don’t shine.” What the Hell (not trying to be clean, I’m mad and that’s when the grown up words rear their expressive little heads.) are you doing listening to those idiots who’s lights are so dim that would ship Tom Hanks and Wilson the soccer ball, just cos they both happened to be on that damn beach together?

    We know Jizers were in dyer need of the chemistry lessen but I’m afraid those delusional people were most likely not here and missed the class. In fact they are so clueless about “Chemistry” that they are porlly the ones who totally misread the situation and are spreading that dribble about Todd and Sam that has you so wrung out. They are as clueless about Character as they are Chemistry. because any one educated in JaSam Character, Chemistry and History, knows Sam is an exceptional PI, she is playing Todd! Don’t think for a minute the fact that Todd is a Rapist has slipped her mind! She is Driven right now (don’t think she even realizes) solely on instinct. She thinks she is diving into work and focusing on uncovering Heather’s Hidden Horrors in order to keep busy. Even she is yet to learn the light of her mothers’ intuition is the Captain of this “Ship”!

    Yesterday I got my first glimmer of light in this dark black sea, that this “Ship is sailing toward JJ, “So I can put our Family back together”! As much as I really Hate the RC regime and the OLTL Crap at nausea m, I saw a show full of glints of light yesterday. (like the , “diamond glints on snow” mentioned in the full verse of “Do not stand at my grave and weep”. (I did a vid to that poem cos I ship JaSam, just in case ya’ll were wonderin.) Okay, I decided to post it in case it helps you snap out of it. JaSam Do not stand at my grave and weep: http://youtu.be/2jYV0rtoDU0 via @youtube

    As much as we know Liz would jump on the Jason boat any time the whistle blows,*sigh we got a great confirmation that Jason is honing his fathers’ intuition and is singularly focused on Sam and ‘their’ family. If Sam cheats it will be a dream sequence or a friendly peck (perhaps on the cheek) that some evil bitch *cough like Liz cough, will run to Jason about and blow all out of proportion. But People hold on to your popcorn it ain’t over! Even if that happens, Jason is NOT hear me now, NOT ever gonna wind up with the Lizard unless he is intoxicated enough to see Sam’s face when he looks at her. Seriously guys, there isn’t that much “Skinny Girl Margaretta” mix on the planet!

    So I say, it’s third quarter, I’m takin the ball and runnin with it…wait were doing “Ships” today. Okay, I say, the storm IS passing, and even though there are always future storms to be weathered, the tide is shifting and we are using the diamond glints of the stars as our guide to sail toward the light house.

    If we can take a moment to write here to share our JaSam love and support then we should ALL take a moment to write RC. and let him know how we feel. You don’t have to be as long winded as I am, just take 15 seconds to tweet him EVERY time your JaSam disappointment crosses your mind. @carlivatiron (I just did, again)

    Kelly Monaco said: “It takes really hard work to do something you’re not comfortable with; to go out and really try and give it your all, ya know, it just proves that you can do anything!”. “Hard work, hard work pays off and that’s what I’m just trying to do, stay determined and ya know, finish something that you put your mind to do and go ahead and do it.”. Isn’t it comforting how smart women make us all look better?

    None of us have been comfortable, instead we’ve been uncomfortable to the point of anguish for a long time with our GH. and our JaSam story line. That said: All I’m trying to do is just stay positive, and finish something I set out to do…see this love story through! I can’t expect art to imitate life; and have the Morgans work hard at getting thru these difficult times, If I’m not gonna work hard and support them in my actions and do the work to make my viewership know..

    And I just have to say: My light shines on this love story because of the way Steve Burton and Kelly Monaco’ light has shown through it. For that reason, no matter the s/L I will never give up (unless they get fed up and leave, or RC runs it off the air). And happily there is enough “Skinny Girl Margarita Mix” on the planet for me to see this through.
    Love to you all. All aboard!

      Bravo,we can’t give up on our couple!!!! I always tweet Carlivati to let him know a loyal fans feelings. Steve and Kelly are great! I just want Sam and Jason back with their baby. They have been broken apart from other peoples lies!!!!!

      June 28, 2012 at 2:25 pm

      • @ Kathydid53 Vi ringrazio, grazi! *stands up strait, stretches forward and looks up an out toward the horizon.

        June 28, 2012 at 5:45 pm

    • Wow you took the words right out of mouth. Every morning I login on to Bella MafiA to read Andelique blog like it the gospel. Without your words of encouragement I would have stop watching GH like did when they destroy Sam to allow liason. The jizers talk about how Liz & Jason was robbed by Guza & Grain wolf whomever but it has be several writers & no of the was ever invested in liason as a lead couple just a only if Jason would leave mob life or it’s to damgergous excuses to never make then a real couple with depth only longing for each others & never realationship a real shot. That being said because at the end of the day Jason & Liz will never work unless that change Jason into something he’s not. JaSam is the prefect fit, like glove on the pitchers hand. Like nut on a bolt. Like peanut butter & jelly, like Kool & sugar. I could go on & on but the vision you have Angelique is so crystal clear it’s so easy for to get your thought across even the unwilling will see your point of view & not argue it. I love your morning post, don’t leave us JaSam fans in the dark. RC has his own agenda & It will fail miserable but your lighthouse clear our path through his agenda & keep our faith in tack for our wonderful fictional couple. That if we didn’t know any better we all would swear they are the real deal.

        Thanks so much for all of those kind words!
        Also for the encouragement on our favorite couple!
        I am going to try really hard to stay faithful and positive for all of you,
        whom I love so dearly!
        Hugs!

        June 29, 2012 at 5:12 am

    • Thanks so much, Kathy, for the encouragement!
      We should take Bella Mafia on the road and do some speaking engagements
      with all these motivational speakers we have! 🙂
      Oh, trust me, the chemistry lesson was not to be wasted on Jizzers.
      What got me in such a funk was not that camp – it was people in our own camp!
      I loved your spunk and encouragement! 🙂
      Most of all, I loved your use of Kelly’s thoughts on getting through something difficult!
      We can all learn something from that!
      Thanks, dear friend!

      • Angelique, you honor me and I am humbly grateful. *Would love to do motivational speaking!
        -As a life long outdoorsy girl and happy camper I have learned: Camp grounds are large, wide open spaces, and just cos other people are around doesn’t mean they are part of “your camp”. (some so lacking in honorable behavior they will steal your flashlight off of the charger at the bath house.WTH) So I say, don’t give them another chance or another thought. Mia Angelou said it best, “When people show you who they are, believe them, the FIRST time.”

        June 29, 2012 at 12:18 pm

  20. Please! Please! Please! DO NOT STOP WRITING THIS BLOG! It is the only thing that keeps me sane most days after watching GH. I may not post on every blog but I do read and enjoy it so much.
    Hell Kelly has chemistry with anyone she is on screen with and the Sam and Todd scenes did not disappoint, but for goodness sakes, Pairing Sam with that rapist; baby stealer; murderer? I think not. I would rather see her paired with Spin. LOL!
    I havent been on twitter much lately because I have had changes going on at work and to be honest, I am exausted when I get home so I dont have much time to get online and chat with all my fellow jasammers as I have in the past.
    I did love Jason saying to the irrelevant one that he would find sams baby and bring it back to her. Jason blames himself as Sam does for losing her baby, but they both will eventually realize it wasnt jasons fault because her baby isnt dead!
    Lets hope all the jasammers can hang in there and RC doesnt do too much damage to them that they cant work their way back together as we know they are meant for each other and their love can survive everything.
    Remember they both have agreed they still have that love and that is all that matters.
    PS: i do wish Jason would find someone else to confide in besides the irrelevant one…just saying.

    June 28, 2012 at 7:17 pm

    • Thanks, Carol!
      I promise to keep trying to keep finding at least a tiny bit of The Beauty of GH
      during whatever comes next.
      How could I possibly turn my back on our “family”?
      Thanks for being such a longtime reader and for commenting!
      Hope everything that changed for you was for the better!

    Angelique, thank you for your blog. I always read this blog to calm me and keep me sane. But I have decided to callit quits with all things general hospital at the moment. I read some recaps from the latest SOD and Reron has managed to do what even Guzanwas not able to do – make me give up on JaSam. Let’s face it, our couple do not cheat! Never! Reron’s concept of Jason and Sam is just not the Jason and Sam I had come to adore. He has destroyed my couple just to satisfy his hard on to relive Calivia! I won’t acce

    June 28, 2012 at 7:47 pm

    • I understand, Nik.
      Thanks for reading and commenting.
      Hopefully, we will all have a reason to love GH again!

    Hi Jasammers Beacons of Light! Thats why I come here! Today was a freaking fantatstic day! All because of GH BELLA MAFIA! Angelique do you see this all these heartfelt comments and its because of you and your insight! You stepped out on your own to start this and look at what you have done! We may not know each other but we are JASAM family!
    We may not always agree but we do agree on one VERY IMPORTANT THING WE ALL LOVE SAM AND JASON! Whether you are a long time fan or not there is just something about them always has been always will be! Because you wanted to share this LOVE with others is why GH BELLA MAFIA came to be! We are all frustrated and more! But the LOVE we have this fictional couple is what BONDS us! I said this before and I will say it again finding this Blog was and is therapy for me! All these insights today may me proud! Do you ever feel a little silly how invested we are about a fictional couple? Sometimes I do but most times I do not really Sam and Jason make me laugh,cry,smile,frown and more! They make my heart full in a good way! And whats wrong with that………nothing! Thank You Ladies……………remember we promised to Hold on no matter what!
    Heather you have to do what you think is best! But your special Talents will be missed your Videos blow my mind! You know my favorite! It is my comfort video when GH pisses me off which is everyday lately! But I will not “let go of my Jasam” I can’t! Promise me when they reunite you will do a Jasam music video like part 1 thru………….!
    Does anyone hear know how to do an online Petition? If not let us PROMISE to contact RC with at least a paragraph and let him know how we feel about Sam and Jason!Be direct just not rude! Ok Ladies! I am writing and slow mailing tonight! I am not a Twitter or Facebook applicant just not my thing! TEAM GH BELLA MAFIA!

      Awe alwaysaromantic you said it… Hear hear TEAM GH BELLA MAFIA… we will weather this storm together no matter what RC throws at us…

    • WOW!
      Thanks for that pep talk! I feel as though I am at our very own JaSam Pep Rally,
      and all I need are pink and black pom-poms!:)
      Thanks for being a longtime reader, and thanks for being such a strong voice of
      encouragement! It is deeply appreciated!
      Get to writing those letters, JaSammers! If they get one from each person that reads
      Bella Mafia next week, carefully and earnestly pleading the case for who JaSam is, I
      believe they will have to take notice!
      One week at a time, let’s fight like never before!
      Thanks AGAIN!

  23. beatrice

    Well you have helpped many of us, keep tune’n in to watch GH, but the freaking writers has decided they don’t care about what we want, they came in with a mission to ruin JaSam, and they are suceeding, it is hard to hold on when they keep pushing us down, there has not been one positive thing that has happened with our couple, it is crap after crap, i don’t know if we will come out on top, just as i am sure Sam will sleep with John, i am not sure our JaSam will remain married, i keep watching thinking ok this week is gonna get better, and wrong i am…we heard Jason say his not gonna give up on Sam but turns around, and tell his motel buddy, they are done, he his spending more time with Lizabitch than his wife, it is as if he can’t understand his the one that messed up and he has to keep trying until he get Sam to see he does love her and wants to wait for her for as long as it takes, i feel like my heart can’t take the disappointment i keep getting, of course i don’t doubt the love that is our couple, but the writers at this point is doing nothing to fix Jason, now when i see him i want ot slap the hell out of him, but i still see JaSam, i don’t see any one else for Sam, i have not seen the reason they should not be together yet…you would think we now have our baby we will have a nice family monment,NOT happening, it kills me to think of how tea is bonding with our baby, and it’s parents are slowly dying….i want Jason to kill Todd….one more thing, i think the people that want Sam with Todd, are the LiarSon fans, wanting Jason and Sam to end so their boring couple can take place.

    June 28, 2012 at 8:55 pm

    • kathydid53

      Agree Beatrice! We don’t know our couple anymore! They are not cheaters!! RC knows nothing about them! I wish we could get a petition to oust his as head writer. He’s like a spoiled child who wants his own way no matter what! He wants his OLTL characters front and center. He wants to recreate Caleb and Livvie,and to hell with JaSam. Well the baby is alive and is Jason’s son. What is going to happen there? I wont give up even though most times I want to!

    June 28, 2012 at 9:03 pm

  25. alwaysaromantic

    I am not going to give the writers what it appears they want! I am not going to “abandon Jason and Sams ship”! If I wrote a letter for everytime this couple has made me smile my hands would cramp up! Think about how much Joy in this crazy world Jasam has given us!

    June 28, 2012 at 9:08 pm

  26. Lara

    To all my wonderful ladies and gents (the more the merrier!) I wanted to tell everyone that please be wary about following the spoilers!!! There are a lot of inaccurate leaks being purposefully dropped just to ignite fury within the fan bases!! Also, the soap mags and even the episode summaries listed on your cable’s guide have had erroneous information as well. I remember reading in SID that Molly was the one who was going to tell Alexis about the rape and clearly we saw that Sam did. It also said that Monica would be helping Jason grieve the day of the baby’s funeral, we didn’t see that either. There have been other discrepancies that I’ve noticed, of course I can’t remember them all right now 😊So I just wanted everyone to know that we really just have to keep watching and see what actually plays out on screen. I too was holding on to the spoilers like a life line until I realized that instead of saving me, they were pulling me further and further away. I remember reading spoilers once that had me so upset I couldn’t sleep that night! We can’t let all the craziness being put out (whether true or not) hinder our united stance which is that we are forever and always a Jasam loving forum and we will not give up on them no matter what!!!

    June 28, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    • kathydid53

      Lara,thanks for the words of encouragement! I have been so upset today because of the spoiler sbout the kiss!! Thats still cheating and thats not who Sam and Jason are!!! Reron has really ruined them ,I dont see how they will ever get back even finding the baby won’t get them back from what RC has done to them. He wants his John McBain to be the hero,to hell with the fans!!! I really dont want to watch but I still will! I am on vacation from7/6-7/11 and wont see GH live. Ill DVR it so then I can fast forward through scenes I hate. I am trying really hard not to give up because I truly believe they belong together. I have to keep telling myself the are fictionsl characters! But Kelly and Steve make us believe they sre real. Thanks for helping me keep the faith

  27. rosejasam4ever

    Bella l wake up and read your blog everyday and today you had me in tears coz if you were losing hope then we are lost souls. I have not watched GH in a while as l was travelling but l read your blog to keep me updated about the happenings in PC. You have given me hope when l felt like quitting a thousand times, so please do not give up coz without your insight GH makes no sense anymore. I was introduced to this blog by Norma jasam number 1 fan and have been hooked since.

    Lets keep the faith people and hang in there for Jasam. I totally agree GH is not the same anymore our characters have been changed to the extreme. Am no longer excited to watch it as nothing captures my heart anymore.I miss the old gh and especially jasam as they were my reason for watching .

    We need to organize a petition and let the writers we are tired of this bs playing on our screens. @aproditebeauty do not give up on our babies, you have an amazing way of show casing their love just keep it coming love.

    June 28, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    • I am so sorry for having you in tears1 It was certainly not my intention! 😦
      Thanks for the encouragement and for being a faithful reader. I will try to stay
      as faithful! Much love!

    After finally accepting that there will be a kiss (was in denial for a while) I’ve been kind of dejected. How much more can jasammers be screwed over in what has got to be record speed? I tried to watch old jasam clips of the good times and that worked for a while but it wasn’t as long lasting as I’d hope. So I came back here. There are a lot of encouraging words but I’m still mentally f’d. I guess I’ll always love jasam but if things really play out on screen and it’s not nightmares/dreams then jasam will never be the same for me again. Knowing that is harder than me watching them go through this bs. They (and we) have come so far only to get hosed in the end. I’m damn near ready to throw in the towel; is it even worth it to go more rounds in the ring just to have RC trash the best couple there is, was or ever will be?

    June 28, 2012 at 10:20 pm

  29. alwaysaromantic

    It4bama: Yes they are worth it! For what you just said! How long have we Held On?! We can’t Let Go now! I have no idea what will happen! What I am hoping for and what will be 2 entirely different things! But what would be worse not to be a True fan and watch to see what DOES happen or to not watch and give up on Jason and Sam! I think a lot of us feel on the edge not wanting to stomach this betrayl any longer but we are Jasammers and we have to see this through! If GH Powers that Be have any sense at all they will right this wrong! BUT if they choose not to………… I will be upset totally disappointed that they destroyed the Best Daytime Couple ever! There will never be another Jason and Sam never! What SB amd KM bring to the screen is nothing I have ever witnessed before NEVER! They are fictional but boy do they make you FEEL!!! I will take my memories of them and so much more with me always,IF they (GH) decide to keep them apart! BUT if they do not and this angst makes them even STRONGER I WOULD NOT WANT TO MISS ONE SECOND OF IT! Can you imagine how wonderful THIS reconciliation would be especillay written correctly?Their Love scene on 9/29/2011( over 3million hits in less than a year) was under GW and he is still on there writing team! GH has been there for us for a long time we need to be for them now! What happens ,happens!

    Dear Angelique,
    This is my first time posting on your site, I am one of those people (which I’m sure there are plenty) which you would call as the quite ones that stay in shadows. but after reading your blog today, I said that’s it!!
    people like me need to come out in full force. After a long day, I love coming to the comfort of my home, and wrapping myself in blanket. and that my dear is what you are to us the Jasam fans! You are our home, our confort blanket and our sense of security!! You are what keeps our faith, our love, and power to fight. Like you and the many vidders out there, we appreciate and love all that you do for us. I’ve been a GH viewer for over 30 yrs. and Jasam fan from the start, they are the essence of what love truly is. We are a strong family, we won one battle before and we will this one as well.

    I know what is being tossed out there, especially from the other camp, these jizzers to me are delusional whack jobs ! they talk about love… What love? A freakin ONS that won’t go away…. What history? … He never gave her the time of day, only when she went chasing after him. someone mentioned that Kelly doesn’t have a huge base, again delusional, just twitter alone Kelly has three times more followers than her, heck Kelly has more that Steve. I can go on and on but I will need pages and pages….

    As for RC and company, I have to believe he can’t be stupid to not notice how off this s/l is, there is something that has stayed with me, on their wedding night, he told Sam, what he found with her he never found with anyone else… And that is “Home”. to me that is powerful. and that Angelique is what you are to us….Home.

    So I will continue to call each day, email, and write I don’t have FB page, but I am gearing to open a twitter account, (no idea how to use) just so that our voice can be heard, so I am calling out to Jasam fans out there that are like me, make yourself hear, and make our Jasam family more powerful than it is.

    And to you Angelique, like I told @Aprodiebeauty Chin Up, Boobs out, and the hell to them! our Jasam is going to come out of this stronger than ever ! Until your next blog !!! Ciao !!

    June 28, 2012 at 11:50 pm

    • Wow, Emanuela!
      *wiping tears AGAIN*
      Thanks so much for the kind words and the pep talk!
      I really do appreciate every reader, but I ADORE hearing from you all! 🙂
      You are right on so many levels. Jiz fans don’t scare me, it’s just when JaSam
      fans start turning on each other that I get a little crazy! LOL
      But you are right…CHIN UP AND BOOBS OUT AND TO THE HELL WITH THEM! HA!
      I LOVE THAT! Thanks again, friend!

  32. TheNamesAnyone

    HEY! EVERYONE! I WANT YOU TO READ THIS! HOPEFULLY THIS WILL CALM EVERYONE AND CREATE SOME TYPE OF UNDERSTANDING.

    PLEASE JASAM FANS CALM DOWN! THEY AREN’T BREAKING THEM UP. THESE WRITERS ARE DUMB BUT NOT THAT DUMB! IN FACT RC LIKES JASAM. I THINK HE IS JUST TRYING TO AVOID MAKING JASAM BORING LIKE JIZ. HOW DO I KNOW THIS? THINK ABOUT IT! WHY WOULD THEY MAKE THE BABY JASON’S? THEY REALLY DIDN’T HAVE TO DO THIS. NEXT WHY DID THEY KEEP THEIR BABY ALIVE AND NOT TEA’S? THEY DIDN’T HAVE TO DO THIS EITHER.

    PEOPLE STOP WORRYING ABOUT THE KISS. AFTER ALL JASON PUT SAM THROUGH. JASON DESERVES TO HURT. I MUCH AS I WANT JASAM. I REFUSE TO LET HIM HAVE THE EASY WAY OUT. EVERYONE HER SOUNDS LIKE SAM SHOULD JUST RUN AND JUMP INTO JASON’S ARMS. UMMM…NO!!! I DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU GUYS BUT I’M LIKING THE SUFFERING JASON. I KNOW YOU THINK JASON AND SAM BEING APART MEANS THE END. BUT THAT’S NOT TRUE. BECAUSE THEY HAD THE CHANCE TO CUT ALL TIES BETWEEN JASON AND SAM. LIKE JASON AND LIZ. GUESS WHAT…THEY DIDN’T. EVERYONE HERE ARE SOUNDING LIKE OBSESSIVE JASON FANS. YOU KNOW WHAT JASON CHEATED SAM TO. HE ROBBED HER OF BEING THE FIRST WOMAN TO HAVE HIS KID. SO, YEAH!!! I DON’T CARE IF SHE GIVES JOHN A KISS. BECAUSE, I KNOW THE END RESULT WILL BE JOHN/NATALIE AND JASAM.

    June 29, 2012 at 12:37 am

    • Thanks for trying to get everyone to stay positive on the fact that JaSam will be fine.
      However, to be fair, I think we get accused more of being Sam fans than obsesses Jason fans. LOL
      The point I think most of us are upset about is that we don’t want another OLTL storyline.
      GH deserves to continue to be GH, with its own characters, and its own way of telling stories.
      GH has never been like OTLT, where everyone sleeps with everyone else, and that’s okay.
      I know for me personally, it’s not okay for either Jason or Sam to be kissing anyone, because
      they are still married! I think Sam is making Jason suffer when all he talks about is Sam, and he
      is walking around like he lost his puppy. I think most of us are disgusted that all of this kissing
      will lead down another road that will keep them apart, and even worse: change who they are.
      I agree with you that they didn’t destroy their connections, but in a lot of ways, they are destroying
      the couple we have come to love and adore.
      Thanks for commenting!

      IA with everything you said. That’s NOTHING compared to what he’s put his wife \through for months. I love JaSam too, but i’m not gonna ignore his treatment of her and her pregnancy/child. Sam had to almost a year for him during jiz, and had no one, he hasn’t even had to fight a month yet, but has such a big support group. I’m sorry but he’s no victim in my eyes in this story. Unlike some others, I wont be a biased Jasam fan putting on rose colored glasses. Sam had her turn those years ago, now it’s his turn.

    Please don’t quit this blog. I don’t usually read or leave comments but for some reason I just felt I needed to tonight. I LOVE THIS BLOG!!! And I would hate to not have it to read every day, Especially in these trying times with our JaSam/Morgans. Your words about our couple and this show let me know that I am NOT the only JaSam fan out there still hanging on….. for dear life it seems. Thank you for always being so positive when there is so much negative being said out there.
