Vanessa Marcil GiovinazzoPeople Magazine's August 16th issues has a small article on Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo's return to Generel Hospital as Brenda Barrett.  There's a picture to accompany it and the girl still looks gorgeous.  I would assume it hits newstands Friday or Monday, but in New York we get things as early as Thursdays.  Plus, Marcil Giovinazzo was on The View today.  She didn't give much away in terms of story...just how she begged the show to take her back because she realized that being on GH was one of the happiest times in her life.  Contributed by Laura DeBrizzi
