‘Madam’ Meredith Vieira Returns To ‘General Hospital’

10 years ago, former “Today” co-anchor Meredith Vieira guest-starred on the legendary ABC soap “General Hospital” as Bree Flanders, the proprietor of an upscale call-girl service. On Friday, December 14, Vieira will return to the program as Ms. Flanders, though since we last saw her Ms. Flanders has left the world of prostitution and moved into the world of cosmetics.

The appearance is part of a crossover with “Who Wants To Be a Millionaire?” which Vieira also hosts. TV Guide has the details, and an interview with Vieira.
