While GENERAL HOSPITAL fans would love for Rick Hearst to bring Ric back to Port Charles, the actor is keeping plenty busy with new roles after relocating to Atlanta, GA — he just announced that he’ll be appearing on the new VH1 series DAYTIME DIVAS!

Just a couple months after revealing that he’d booked a role on THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, Hearst took to Instagram to declare, “Well, Atlanta, you definitely are showing me that relocation was wise. Just booked an arc to play opposite the multi-talented and stunning Vanessa Williams on the VH1 series DAYTIME DIVAS.”
DAYTIME DIVAS is a new series inspired by Star Jones’ book Satan’s Sisters: A Novel of Fiction that centers around the drama between five female co-hosts on a daytime talk show. It stars Williams, Tichina Arnold, Chloe Bridges, Camille Guaty, and Fiona Gubelmann as the hosts and McKinley Freeman as the producer of their show.
Details regarding Hearst’s character and his arc haven’t been revealed, but DAYTIME DIVAS isn’t slated to premiere until 2017, so there’s still time for him to share some info before then — Stay tuned!
