Nearly two years ago, fans and castmembers alike were stunned to learn that Rebecca Herbst
) had been let go from General Hospital. The uproar over Herbst's ouster led the show to reconsider its decision.
Now, as 2013 is inching closer, rumors of the actress' dismissal are once again circulating.
This time, however, they are not true.
"Thank you so much for all your concern and support, but I have not quit GH, nor have I been let go," Herbst assured fans on Twitter.
The rumors of Herbst's firing seem to have started by the show's decision to write out her on-screen brother, Scott Reeves
). Reeves revealed just last week
that he's been let go.
"I have a heavy heart. My friend, @reevesforreal, who means so much to me, was let go," Herbst added. "I'm wide awake thinking about all the endless possibilities he has to look forward to. He has more musical talent in his little finger... I was so lucky 2 play his 'sis' but even more blessed 2 have him in my life.."
