General Hospital Spoilers: Nelle’s Father Revealed as Frank Benson – Bobbie Discovers Carly And Nelle Are Step-Sisters

General Hospital Spoilers: Nelle's Father Revealed as Frank Benson - Bobbie Discovers Carly And Nelle Are Step-Sisters

General Hospital (GH) spoilers finally revealed the mysterious connection between Nelle Hayes (Chloe Lanier) and Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright). Nelle and Carly share a father – Frank Benson – but for one of them, he’s a biological father and for the other, an adoptive father. Nelle and Carly are step-sisters!

On Wednesday’s GH, it was out of the blue that Carly name-dropped the Bensons. We haven’t heard much about her adoptive family. Carly recounted for Bobbie Spencer (Jacklyn Zeman) her painful history with her adoptive father. Carly couldn’t decide whether or not to cut Frank out of a family tree photo project.

Carly said Frank ran off and left her and her adoptive mother Virginia Benson when she was three years old. Carly trash talked her adoptive daddy and Nelle didn’t like it all. Carly said that Frank “left them flat and never sent them a dime” then added that “he was sad and bitter “from what Virginia said.

It was the worst day for Carly to bang on about deadbeat adoptive dad Frank. Carly didn’t know it, but Nelle was missing her dad Frank in particular on Wednesday because it was the anniversary of his death. Nelle had to hear her secret step-sister saying bad things about him and was ready to burst in anger and frustration.

Nelle glared and paced while all this was going on and then once Bobbie, Carly and Michael Quartermaine (Chad Duell) left the room, Nelle picked up a photo of Carly as a baby. The big shocker there is that in the pic, baby Carly is holding the “Caroline” rattle that we’ve seen in Nelle’s weird little box of secrets.

So the reveal is that after Frank left his wife Virginia and adopted daughter Carly, he met and married Nelle’s mother and they fell on hard times. That’s why Nelle grew up poor and why Frank and wife number two were so financially desperate that they sold Nelle’s kidney which saved Josslyn Jack’s (Eden McCoy) life.

Nelle loved her father despite the tough life she had growing up. There is obviously much more to the story about why Frank and Virginia split up and why Virginia wound up raising Carly alone. All Nelle can see is that Carly is a rich bitch with a sweet life who’s trash talking Nelle’s daddy Frank.

Bobbie noticed Nelle’s strong reaction to the photo of baby Carly and called up a pal. Bobbie has a friend digging up dirt on Nelle’s past and all her secrets will come out soon. Will Nelle have a chance to finish her dirty work before Bobbie rats her out to Carly? We also know that Nelle and Michael can hook up – they’re not blood relations.

General Hospital Spoilers: Nelle's Father Revealed as Frank Benson - Bobbie Discovers Carly And Nelle Are Step-Sisters

Nelle’s real name must be Nelle Benson and Hayes is likely her mom’s maiden name or some other fiction. Nelle couldn’t come to town with the last name Benson or Carly would have figured it out by now. But that will be the stunner that Bobbie discovers that will blow this all wide open and Nelle will have some big explaining to do.

And how sick is it that Frank Benson sold his little girl Nelle’s kidney to save the life of the kid of his estranged adoptive daughter Carly? What a twisted sister situation this is but it does clear a path for Michael and Nelle to fall into a romance and it sure seems to be heading that way despite the mystery man in her life.

What do you think about this secret step-sister twist? Are you happy that Nelle and Carly aren’t mother and daughter and share no blood ties? Share your comments below and tune into CDL often for the latest General Hospital spoilers and news.

 



  • Christina Ortiz

    How does that make them step sisters? Who writes these articles lol

    • Kevin Pham

      i’m still hoping that LIZ and FRANCO article is not true, but those cringe looking pictures look legit ?????????????? ???????? ???? ???? ???? ????

    • ceecee

      Just what came to my mind as well lol

    • GH Watcher

      Exactly they would not be step sisters.Another made up headline lol. I want more scenes between Jackie and Chloe today was great acting by both!

  • PNutButty

    I still hate this story line

  • PassionQueen77

    Good. I just hope this storyline moves on very soon. Yawn!!

  • dorisnshipp

    Don’t like Nelle and dont want her with Michael period!

    • Elizabeth Healey

      I don’t like them together either and forget Michael forgiving her!

  • Storyline doesn’t make sense. How would Nelle and Josslyn be a perfect match then.

    • Lily

      You don’t have to be blood related to be an organ donor match. And no one said they were a perfect match. They just confirmed the blood types were the same and that Nell is missing a kidney. They would have had to do a surgical kidney biopsy to know if the organs were an identical match and that never happened.

  • whataboutpromblaine

    So Sabrina was killed off because what again. This storyline is so stupid. I really hope they bring in someone new for Michael. Although there’s no blood relation, it’s still too close to home. Besides, he’s already been in an incest like storyline which was gross the first time. No need to repeat.

    • Lily

      Michael isn’t going to want anything to do with her after what she did to Sonny comes out, and what she’s trying to do to Carly.

      • Christina Ortiz

        I disagree, he forgave Sabrina for cheating with Carlos and trying to pass the baby off as his not to mention trying to make Ava miscarry Avery.

    • Christina Ortiz

      I liked Sabrina,but she was no saint and her and Michael were boring together.Even though they dragged this story on too long I think its more interesting than Sabrina and I like Michael and Nelle better.

      • whataboutpromblaine

        I disagree. They had chemistry but the writing was and still is choppy. They struggled to flesh out both Michael and Sabrina. Sabrina shined when her claws came out I.e. when she was investigating Rosalie. Instead of having Sabrina go into nursing she could have been the shows real PI. That Carlos storyline was such a waste and didn’t even make sense. There was no reason for Sabrina to sleep with Carlos. She went years without so much as a thought of Carlos but the writers want us to believe she had a moment of weakness. Yeah ummmmm ok. Nelle’s storyline is a recycled 22 year old storyline that wasn’t good the first time.

  • Lily

    They’d be adoptive sisters, not step sisters. I don’t care about Frank or Nell. Get rid of her and forget about him. Put Sonny and Carly back together and let Bobbie figure out Nell drugged Sonny and set him up. If Sonny and Carly divorce again I’m done til marriage #6. Should have made Nell Jerry’s kid. That would have made more sense.

    • Kevin Pham

      yeah Nelle should have been Jerry’s kid ????????

  • Sthom

    Frank Benson is Carly’s legal father
    because he adopted her. He had
    a child in a second marriage, Nelle. That makes them step sisters ..although biologically not related at all. I am just glad Nelle is not Carly’s daughter..yah. Still don’t really care about this story. Feel sorry for actrice playing Nelle she did such a great job playing young spencer. The actice has potential. It is the storyline that most people seam to hate so far

    • Lily

      Carly is obviously much older than Nell, and never knew about her. Since she still referred to her mom as a Benson I don’t think the parents ever divorced. Or her mom just kept her married name in spite of it. My mom did. Nell could be a love child with a mistress who he never married, and since he kept a memento of Carly, the baby rattle, it could have made Nell feel like Frank loved Carly more than her, breeding jealousy. Add that to the fact that Frank apparently sold Nell’s kidney for money to Carly’s daughter, of all people, it could have made that turn into hatred. What I don’t get is why Nell would owe Frank, and why Frank would let her destroy Carly’s life. Frank left Carly when she was a baby, so why he would hate her now is anyones guess. And they’re adoptive sisters, not step sisters.

  • lovethosedimples

    What if Frank was one of Bobbie’s johns? What if he “adopted” his own daughter, unbeknownst to his wife? Now that would be a soapy twist to this story. Maybe even Nelle doesn’t know that she and Carly are actually half-sisters! Ha! So when the reveal goes down, Nelle gets a reveal of her own!!!!!

  • Sylvia Newcomb Foster

    I would like to see one of Sonny’s love interests come back and show interest in Sonny to make Carly jealous and for Bobbie to discover that Nelle is lying about her and Sonny

  • Michael James Bradley

    A couple days ago, Nelle was supposed to be John Durant’s daughter.
    This site really tries to cover every possibility with their ramblings.
    -Carly’s secret daughter
    -Bobbie’s secret daughter
    -One of the Jacks brother’s secret daughter
    -Carly’s secret step-sister
    -Another secret daughter of Jeff Webber maybe?
    -Nelle is a secret WSB agent trying to get the goods on Sonny?
    -Aliens!!!

  • MsA..BOIEE

    Im through, enuf said!

  • Cheryl

    Dont care for the Nelle story either. Would have been better written AS Michael’s sister would have been WAY more interesting sunce TPTB decide they Needed Nelle? Agree Would Rather have seen Sabrina and Michael!!! MICHAEL AND NELLE LOOK LIKE BROTHER AND SISTER

  • Lily

    They’re rarely right anyway. Typos probably don’t bother them that much.
