General Hospital Spoilers – Trina Robinson’s Paternity
GH spoilers reveal that there was speculation a long time ago that Trina’s father might not be who everyone thinks. That was confirmed when Portia and Jordan Ashford (Tanisha Harper) were trapped in the basement.
Portia knew that if she didn’t make it out, the secret would never come out. So, she confessed to Jordan about Trina’s real father. Of course, the secret still remains hidden. As fans know, secrets in soaps never stay buried forever.
GH Spoilers – Genetic Testing
In recent episodes, Portia found out that Curtis Ashford’s (Donnell Turner) father was diagnosed with schizophrenia. Viewers may recall Portia trying to get genetic testing done as Marshall Ashford’s (Robert Gossett) mental illness bombshell came out. Portia almost got caught talking on the phone with the genetic testing lab. However, she covered but the truth is going to come out soon.
General Hospital Spoilers – Why Portia Robinson Lied
General Hospital spoilers reveal that Kerr talked a bit about the storyline with Soap Opera Digest. Kerr was asked if Portia has known and been keeping this secret for nearly 20 years. I mean, it’s possible that Portia didn’t know who the father was and was in denial until recently. Kerr replied,
“I’ve had to ask myself that a few times. I’ve kind of been trying to add a bit of extra ‘happy, happy’ to it, like, ‘Oh, let’s not think about it, let’s not think about that doubt.’ That’s what I call it, the doubt that Portia has as far as whatever that secret is.”

Kerr also said that fans need to think about everything Portia was going through at the time of her pregnancy. She was probably in medical school when she got pregnant with Trina. There might have been family circumstances and stability issues that made Portia think that hiding the truth was better.

What do you think is going to happen when Portia’s secret comes out? Does she have a good reason for lying all these years or is her secret unforgivable?
