Ang “Tsismosang Pipi”
          Masasabing isang kakaibang kuwento ang “Tsismosang Pipi,” dahil sa pamagat pa lamang ay malilito na ang isipan ng makakarinig. Unang lumabas ang nobelang komiks na ito noong Nobyembre 16, 1955 sa mga pahina ng Hiwaga Komiks. Ito ay isinulat ni A. S. Vel (buong pangalan Antonio S. Velasquez) at iginuhit ni Alfredo “Fred” Alcala at (sa ibang pagkakataon) ni Teny Henson.

Anthony Geary (as Luke Spencer),
Genie Francis (Laura Webber), and
Elizabeth Taylor (guest character Helena Cessadine)
for the television soap opera General Hospital,
on the cover of People Weekly (November 16, 1981).
Picture Trivia
          The television series General Hospital, which started on April 1, 1963, is considered as the “longest running soap opera” in the United States. The husband and wife team of Frank and Doris Hursley conceptualized the soap opera that revolved around the events and circumstances inside a “general hospital.” Hence, the title.
          Do you know that renowned actress Elizabeth Taylor is an avid fan of General Hospital? For this, she appeared in one episode of the soap opera. This was on the November 17, 1981 episode during the wedding of Luke Spencer (played by Anthony Geary) and Laura Webber (Genie Francis). In the wedding, the guest character Helena Cessadine (Elizabeth Taylor) gave a curse. It was recorded as the “most-watched event in daytime soap opera history.”
