Meredith Vieira to Return to ABC's GENERAL HOSPITAL, 12/14

In March 2003, multi-Emmy Award winner Meredith Vieira played Bree Flanders on ABC's hit drama "General Hospital." What was the profession of the character played by the host of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire"?

If you said "C, final answer" you are correct! Vieira played a high class madam, and on FRIDAY, DECEMBER 14, she once again steps into Bree Flanders' shoes when she returns to "General Hospital" (2:00-3:00 p.m., ET/1:00-2:00 p.m., PT/CT).

"I actually resurrected a character, Bree Flanders, that I played ten years ago. At that point she was a madam," said Vieira. "Now she's a Senior Vice President of a company, so she's definitely improved her lot in life. It strikes me every time I do anything with a soap opera – but just working with General Hospital -- so impressed with the actors, they're so good. They have to learn so much material on a day-to-day basis. You know, ten years ago I had a better memory than now, so I was a little intimidated, but it worked out great."

Bree Flanders has elevated her position from upscale madam, who once tempted Luke Spencer's girl friend to join her ranks, to Senior Vice President of Marketing for CoeCoe Cosmetics. Vieira's appearance also helps to usher in the return of fan favorite Lucy Coe, played by Lynn Herring, who also marks her return to "General Hospital" on Friday, December 14.

On April 1-2, 2013, as "General Hospital" celebrates its 50th Anniversary, "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" host Meredith Vieira will welcome two of "General Hospital's" fan favorites, Finola Hughes (Anna Devane) and Jason Thompson (Dr. Patrick Drake) as "Millionaire" contestants playing for charity to benefit Art of Elysium. "Millionaire" airs weekdays. Check local listings or go to http://www.millionairetv.com/ for time and channel.
