General Hospital Spoilers: UPDATE – Brytni Sarpy Off Contract, Bumped To Recurring Status

General Hospital Spoilers: UPDATE - Brytni Sarpy Off Contract, Bumped To Recurring Status

Recent General Hospital (GH) spoilers from several blind items swirling in the soap world hint that Valerie Spencer (Brytni Sarpy) might be axed from GH in coming days. The blind item from Soap Nation, that has also been seen elsewhere, says “Someone is said to be on their way out the door, some fans not happy with character?”

Other hints about the blind item list the character as newer on the scene but says fans have not taken to the character and that’s why the cut will come soon. GH fans have never warmed up to cousin Valerie since she came on the scene, tried to kill Luke Spencer (Anthony Geary) then bedded Lulu Spencer’s (Emme Rylan) hubby Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna).

GH showrunners tried to increase appeal for Valerie by embroiling her in the GH serial killer case, but that fell flat when Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) cracked the case making Valerie and Jordan Ashford’s (Vinessa Antoine) cop work irrelevant. There are other signs that GH could be winding down this character.

The writers have killed off the romance between Valerie and Curtis Ashford (Donnell Turner). Curtis’ character is doing well and fans love Donnell Turner. They’re moving him into a love triangle with Jordan and Andre Maddox (Anthony Montgomery) which leaves no room for Valerie. Recently, Valerie showed up out of nowhere in a ball gown at the gala.

She flirted with Dillon Quartermaine (Robert Watkins) but that could been a Hail Mary to see if there’s any shred of chemistry there. Dillon is fated to wind up with Kiki Jerome (Hayley Erin) so Valerie is at loose ends. Curtis and Jason Morgan (Billy Miller) have become the de facto new cops in town, so the girl in blue isn’t really needed.

Also, it looks like Brytni Sarpy has been exploring her options outside of GH since she’s had so few scenes to shoot. She appeared recently on “New Girl” and may already be auditioning for new roles. Of course, ABC has released no official word on the departure of the character or Brytni Sarpy and this is strictly a blind item and rumor – nothing is set in stone and this could be about someone else.

But given the lackluster fan support for the character, it seems inevitable that Valerie will continue to be back-burnered even if Brytni Sarpy isn’t fired from the show. What do you think GH fans? Do you want Valerie to stick around Port Charles or are you ready to see her exit? Share your comments below and tune into CDL often for hot General Hospital spoilers and news.

    Brytni Sarpy is a very fine actress, but the GH writers
    never devoted much time to developing this Spencer character. If it’s true she’s leaving; it’s their loss!

  2. PassionQueen77 says:

    I am not surprised that Brytni Sarpy is leaving the show. The writers didn’t pay attention to her character as Valerie Spencer on the show. I wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors.

  3. wide awake in sleepy eye says:

    It is somewhat inaccurate to say GH showrunners tried to embroil interest in Valerie by tying her to the GH serial killer case but it fell
    flat when Anna Devane returned. I LOVE Anna Devane [Finola Hughes]

  4. Don't Pretend Anymore says:

    The character of Valerie should have never been created. It’s not her fault. It was an un-needed, waste of a character and storyline.

  5. wide awake in sleepy eye says:

    Well said Rachel!

  6. Rachel Dalton says:

    I agree. Hell, they have had to rebuild a few characters over the last year because of how badly they destroyed their reputations. Elizabeth, Nicholas, Franco, Valerie etc… even making Anna go against her own principals when they had her shoot Carlos last year.

  7. Dinah S says:

    That is true. I don’t see her long term as they do not know what to do with her. I also think she doesn’t really shine as other characters do. I miss Spencer and Nicholas Cassidine but they are off the show. I believe that we really loved the dad and son. I even liked Britt in the end but they got rid of her too!

  8. Dinah S says:

    Yeah, I don’t really like Hayden either. I think i liked Valerie more than Hayden. I don’t know why they let morgan, britt, nicholas, emily, old jason, spencer and others we love go but keep Hayden on. I think they should give Tracy someone to love also.

  9. Dinah S says:

    I know that is so true. I really love Brad as he was a bad lab tech who was really trying to be good. He is so funny. I hope they bring him back!!! And Felix was funny but they killed sabrina and then it was hard i think for them to write for him. We are stuck with more people on the show we don’t like such as Franco. Liz should not have paired with him. I liked him better with Nina.

    Good I can’t stand Valerie please let her go boring she is wish they would bring Sabrina back loved the friendship of her and Felix miss both of them
