ABC ‘General Hospital’ (GH) spoilers finds that star Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos) has a very special message for Kanye West. The actor admitted that he was concerned about Kanye’s mental health after watching a video of him during a campaign rally in which he talked about abortion and his personal issues. Here’s what you need to know.
Maurice wrote on his Twitter account, “As I saw a video of Kanye West it really saddened me. I don’t know the details, I have a gut feeling. From one Bipolar to another Bipolar, I truly hope you find your way.”
As many fans know, Maurice has been very open and vocal about his bipolar disorder and wrote about it in his latest book, ‘Nothing General About It.’
“I’m so proud of the book,” he said to Soaps In Depth in a new interview. “It’s just a brutally honest portrayal of my life — the good and the bad. And I didn’t want it to be anything else. I didn’t want it to make me look great. I just wanted the truth.”

“What’s funny is, about halfway through doing the audiobook, it made me realize I’ve been through hell,” he admitted. “When you’re living your life, you take it for granted. When you read your life, almost like a third person looking in, you go, ‘Damn, that’s a lot!’ There were three times during taping where I literally just broke down like a baby and started bawling.”
Maurice also gave a lot of credit to his co-writer, Sue Black, who helped him every step of the way. He says that if it weren’t for her, the book wouldn’t have come out as successful as it has.
“Sue Black, who was my partner in this, she knows how to write,” he raved. “We were already friends, so we just sat together for a year and a half. She’d have a tape recorder, and I’d tell her all my stories because I wanted to have my voice in there. And I talked a lot, man!”
Meanwhile, ‘General Hospital’ is expected to begin filming again this week, although producers are yet to make any confirmations. Production was suspended back in March to help curb the spread of the global pandemic that has been the coronavirus.
