News Round-up: GH's Robin, Tristan Wilds, Wendy Richard

NY DAILY NEWS: Depressed Robin strays from the nest in GENERAL HOSPITAL
Robin kisses a stranger next week on GENERAL HOSPITAL," leading her to finally admit she is suffering from postpartum depression.

"She's at a random bar in Rochester, where she has met Brad the carpenter," says Kimberly McCullough, who plays the conflicted Dr. Robin Scorpio. "They go on a date and have a great time. Somehow they end up back in her hotel room."

Where, unbeknownst to Robin, her husband, Patrick, will soon show up.

"Robin and Brad do some soap opera kissing, but she freaks out before she has sex with him," says McCullough. "Patrick watches them kiss and leaves, but Robin doesn't know that."

Patrick heads back to Port Charles convinced that his wife had sex with young Brad. He confides in Liz, who compounds his fears by sharing that women with postpartum are more prone to have affairs. As Patrick is chewing on that, Robin comes home.

"She tells him the truth," says McCullough. "Well, she doesn't say, 'Oh, by the way, I made out with some random guy.' She leaves that part out. She says, 'I went to this bar and I made up this whole story about myself that wasn't true. I said I wasn't married and I didn't have kids. Obviously, something is wrong with me.'"

Wendy Richard's final message of hope
The EASTENDERS actress - who died from cancer last month - recorded a poignant documentary in November last year about her battle against illness, which is filled with messages to inspire hope in others.

In the documentary Wendy - who played Pauline Fowler over 21 years in the soap - says: "You're there to give hope and encouragement to other women going through the same thing. So even if you're just popping out to the shops, you want to look your best."

The documentary, titled 'Wendy Richard: To Tell You The Truth', airs tonight on BBC1.
