It has been reported that Steve Burton tried to work with GH to work less and they could not agree. His new job will allow him to work less and travel cross country to spend the majority of his time in TN with his family. I don't understand why people think he has done anything wrong. This is a job. People change jobs all the time. People make decisions that are best for their families. I miss him on GH too - but am happy for him that family comes first, and that he has a job to continue to support his family.

I agree. I have never watched anything but ABC soaps but I would like to see if he can play anything other than Jason.

He spent 20 years on one job, inside he was ready to move. That said, I really do believe he will be back to GH at some point. It is not HOME to him. Anyone that spends 20 years anywhere after the initial high of the change leaves the deep down homesickness for "his" job (character). I really believe that. I have seen it happen in corporate american more then once. I do hope that he does get some personal happiness out of it all.

I'll be slightly irritated if SB was planning to head to Y&R all along. But maybe his contract had some sort of non-compete that he had to wait out without announcing his true plans - hence the whole "I'm just moving to Tennessee" thing.

Still looking forward to seeing him in February though - he's performing with the GH cover band "Port Chuck" about an hour from me on Valentine's Day!

There probably was a non - compete somewhere in his contract. He probably waited the required waiting time or more likely the Young and the Restless did before they officially contacted him. Also, while a non-complete may be in the contract the reality is it is really hard to enforce. Let's face it, very few courts are going to side with the employee telling them they are not permitted to work in their current field. His contract was up, they could not reach a new agreement, he moved on. I wish him the best but I've no interest in the show. Heck, I didn't watch it when other ex-ghers were on it that I really enjoy. I feel for a lot of the ex-soap stars, there are very few daytime drama's for them to work in.

Okay, who wants to make a bet that Maxie gets pregnant by Spinelli and passes the baby off as LuLu's and Dante's.

Rumor is that Lulu's test results were mixed up and she'll be pregnant by April.

I can totally see that. In fact, I thought they might get pregnant after the New Years party as a happy accident, to make up for Maxie miscarrying.

What's going on with the whole Duke/Anna/Robert/ Robin thing?..I probably missed it but how did that all turn out? Last I saw Robert was lying on the floor with a needle through the heart trying to tell Anna that Robin was alive?...

I think that's where it ended.

The pregnancy story is disgusting. I keep tuning in for other stories on GH that aren't as upsetting.

I was thinking the exact same thing....I really hope it doesn't go that way, I'm soooooooo tired of those paternity scenarios. I see another "premonition" from Olivia of her seeing a baby with glasses and a pocket protecter.
