‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Kelly Monaco Exiting Rumors Not True – Sam McCall Stays

General Hospital‘s rumor mill has been filled with speculation that Kelly Monaco, who plays Sam McCall on ABC’s General Hospital, has decided to call it quits. Rumors began circulating when Sam first told Drew (Billy Miller) she was leaving and have continued ever since.  

The war between DreAm and JaSam fans on General Hospital

The fan war between Dream fans and JaSam fans has heated up lately on Twitter and may have led some to believe that Kelly had tired of her role as Sam. Well, her fans can rest easy as Kelly is not leaving General Hospital. According to a source “very close to the show has confirmed” that Kelly Monaco is not the leading lady the rumors have been referring to.

GH fans have enjoyed Kelly’s performances since she first arrived in Port Charles as the feisty con-artist Samantha McCall in October 2003.  In a 2013 interview, Ms. Monaco said of her General Hospital character, “Sam is a fighter, she’s an injured bird and she’s just trying to stay alive.”

Kelly and her leading men on GH

Like every other General Hospital character, Kelly has been paired with several of her male co-stars. First, it was with Jasper Jacks (Ingo Rademacher). Then, there was Hamilton Finn  (Michael Easton). Plus, she had a short stint with Dr. Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson). Sam had a steamy affair with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard), resulting in the stillbirth of their daughter on General Hospital.

But the fans were absolutely delighted when Kelly was paired with co-star Steve Burton (Jason Morgan). Their chemistry was off the charts. That made them one of the most popular super couples on General Hospital. At least until Jason’s disappearance in 2012. GH brought back the character of Jason Morgan played by Billy Miller. And the two connected and created “DreAm”. Miller is now Drew Cain — Sam’s ex-husband. 

What’s next for Sam on General Hospital?

Fans are very excited to see what’s next on Sam’s agenda. Now, she has decided to give up her sensible black pumps for her Private eye black boots and leather Jacket. Whether you are a DreAm fan or a JaSam fan, audiences are waiting and watching. So, what’s next for one of the 50 naughtiest soap opera vixens of 2009. We are certainly happy that Kelly Monaco has decided to stay and give us many more episodes with Sam McCall.
