GH's Herbst Out!
A show rep confirms a Daytime Confidential online report that GENERAL HOSPITAL's Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth) has been let go from the soap she has called home since 1997. ABC issued the following statement: "Storyline dictates the exit of Elizabeth Webber this spring. The next few months promise to be a 'not to miss' story for the character. We at ABC and GENERAL HOSPITAL wish Rebecca Herbst nothing but the best in all of her future endeavors." Insiders say the news came as a shock to both the actress and her co-stars. Ironically, in the 1/11/11 issue of Digest, Elizabeth won our poll as "The Character Most In Need Of A Story in 2011," capturing 36 percent of the vote.
