Vanessa Marcil joins “Lipstick Jungle”.
We’ve heard all summer about the “conversations” going back and forth between Vanessa Marcil (ex-Brenda Barrett) and the powers that be at General Hospital. We’ve been all but assured that it’s only a matter of logistics until a deal is struck to bring her back to Port Charles for a little while. But SoapOperaFan has just learned that “our” Brenda will be a resident NBC’s “Lipstick Jungle” starting September 24th. Her recurring character is a music manager named Josie. (Her experience as the “B” in L&B records on GH must’ve sealed the deal, eh?) If I’m to be honest and not at all selfish, Vanessa seems like a perfect fit for the prime time sudser starring Brooke Shields, Andrew McCarthy and created by “Sex in the City” author Candace Bushnell.
Although ABC hasn’t put out an official statement yet, I feel fairly comfortable saying that GH’s loss is “Lipstick Jungle’s” gain. Who knows, maybe Vanessa will be able to moonlight?
