Brenda, Brenda, Brenda.
As confirmed by a rep for ABC, GH is welcoming Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo and Brenda Barrett back in a big way.
On July 17, SOAPnet will begin its 25-day countdown by revealing a different Brenda moment every day leading up to her return on August 11. The cable network will then run “The Best of Brenda and Sonny” marathon on August 15 starting at 3:00 PM EST, airing four classic episodes of the popular couple. The marathon will also include appearances by Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo (Brenda) and Maurice Benard (Sonny).
As for ABC, Sonny will start reminiscing about his long ago love on August 6 and will continue his trip down memory lane on August 9. Then on August 10, the day before Brenda finally returns, ABC will dedicate all three hours of its Daytime block to Brenda and her men, which Vanessa herself will host. Beginning at 1:00 PM EST, the love fest will begin with repeat episodes involving Brenda with Sonny, Jax (Ingo Rademacher) and Jason (Steve Burton). They will air in place of All My Children and One Life to Live. SOAPnet will also re-air those episodes later that night.
