‘General Hospital’: Michelle Stafford Last Day – Official ‘GH’ Exit and Goodbye Party

General Hospital spoilers show that Michelle Stafford wrapped her run as Nina Reeves on May 10. That seems to be her last day at ABC studios. So, Michelle Stafford is officially gone as Nina. That places her final episodes in about a month. That’s plenty of time for her to find out Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) is lying to her. Some late-breaking GH chatter says that Stafford’s last scenes may revolve around this stunning reveal which sets up her temporary exit on the ABC sudser.

General Hospital Spoilers: Michelle Stafford Done – Final Airdate in mid-June

The latest GH spoilers indicate Nina Reeves will last be seen with Michelle Stafford’s face in the middle of next month. The cast and crew threw a bon voyage party for the actress on Friday. She got a cake that said “All Best Wishes Michelle! Love your GH family”. Standing at her side in the pics were Donnell Turner (AKA) Curtis Ashford who is a frequent scene partner with her. Also at her side were two she rarely (if ever shares scenes with).

General Hospital recent return Ingo Rademacher (AKA Jasper “Jax” Jacks) was there beside her. Also, on her other side was Jon Lindstrom (AKA Kevin Collins and Ryan Chamberlain). But no doubt there was a ton of other people there that just didn’t make it into the pic. Although some hint that Michelle Stafford blindsided the ABC soap with her exit, a source on set says this was a contract negotiation breakdown timed with a good offer from Young and the Restless.

GH Spoilers: Nina Reeves Half-Heart Necklace – Other Half Surfaces Soon

Official General Hospital spoilers for upcoming storylines promise that the other half of Nina Reeves’ necklace turns up soon. The big question is whether that necklace turning up reveals the truth that Sasha Gilmore (Sofia Mattsson) and Valentin are lying. Then again, someone might blab the truth. There’s also the question of who has the necklace. Could it be that the necklace is in the trust pledge of either Willow Tait (Katelyn MacMullen) or Harmony?

Surely, GH fans have never seen the necklace on Willow but it seems almost certain at this point that she’s Nina Reeves’ kid. The soap loves to set mystery parent and child pairings where they’re adults that hate each other. Remember Bobbie-Carly, Sonny-Dante, and Alexis-Sam? It’s a tried and true trope of this soap. Since Willow and Nina Reeves dislike each other so much, it’s a red flag they are bio mom and kid. And several know the truth now.

Michelle Stafford Leaving and Heading Over to Young and the Restless

Not only was this week the last day on General Hospital for Michelle Stafford as Nina Reeves. But it coincides closely with Gina Tognoni’s exit over at Y&R. She reportedly wrapped filming at the CBS soap the last week of April. So, depending on when Stafford heads over to start shooting at CBS, there might not be much of a gap for her character Phyllis Abbott.

But over at the other soap, it’s another story. Cynthia Watros (Lost, Finding Carter) debuts in summer as the new face of Nina. She won’t start shooting her first scenes at GH until June. Perhaps Michelle Stafford’s final scenes are her freaking out over the bio-daughter lie. Some chatter says she’ll drive her car into a tree and go into a coma. But the soap could go low key and just send her off to Paris to brood for a month. We’ll find out more soon now that Michelle Stafford is done at the soap.
