“I haven’t been fired, I’m not on vacation”

When Elizabeth became a patient at Shadybrook last month, it resulted in less screen time for the portrayer Rebecca Herbst on “General Hospital”. Since then, rumors swirled online that Herbst had been fired or was in the midst of intense contract negotiations with the daytime drama series, among other alleged reasons for her absence from the screen.

In a Tweeter Herbst shut down some of the speculation on Friday, saying not only has she not been fired, but she is also not on vacation and does not have Covid. She said, “Well, hello…just thought I’d put a stop to some rumors that were going around: I haven’t been fired. I am not on vacation. I don’t have covid. My children do not prevent me from working. I also have no cramps (best yet). I hope you are all having a good weekend! XOXO”

An user tweeted in response, “So you joined the Space Force Reserve! (It’s like the Army Reserve, but for the Space Force. But then, you obviously already know that.)” This tweet generated a response Herbst’s “rolling on the floor laughing” emoji.

As of press time, Herbst’s original post has amassed over 1,400 likes, over 220 retweets and nearly 200 fan responses.

Prior to the Friday June 17 tweet, the last time Herbst posted on the social media platform was in mid-May when she said“I just finished reading all my sweet birthday wishes!! TY so much for the beautiful flowers and the dozens and dozens of cupcakes I was able to share with my GH family as well as my team at home And #12DaysofBecky was a fun walk down memory lane… TY from the bottom of my heart Herbst celebrated his birthday on May 12.

As well as crushing the rumor mill herself, Herbst was part of the official cast photo that was taken during last month’s taping of the show’s 15,000th episode which is currently scheduled to air. on Tuesday, June 21 after Thursday’s national preemption. Herbst was also pictured alongside his co-star Genie Francois whose character plays a central role in the overall plot of the special stand-alone episode when the town of Port Charles rallies around Laura Collins.
