Looks like the new primetime dramatic pilot from ABC formerly titled Venice, now called Westside, will include more former soap stars!

First came the news that The Young and the Restless Michael Graziadei (Ex-Daniel) has been cast in the Westside pilot, but today via Deadline.com, came the news that former General Hospital favorite Lexi Ainsworth (Ex-Kristina) has been cast, too!

Deadline revealed, “General Hospital alum Lexi Ainsworth has been added to ABC’s Romeo & Juliet-esque pilot Westside, about the haves and the have-nots of California’s most seductive city, Venice. Ainsworth, repped by Green & Associates, plays Nico, the teenage daughter of Lisa (Jennifer Beals) with a type-A personality. She will next be seen in The Bully Chronicles.

So are you excited for Lexi’ new role?  Do you wish she would return to General Hospital as Kristina Davis?  Does Westside sound intriguing to you?  Weigh-in!

I am so happy for her! Is this the same pilot that was first called Venice? I am glad they changed the name to something other than Venice because as we soap fans know there is already a Venice online soap!

She does look more like Mollys sister than the current actress playing Kristina but Lexi seems a little too busy to return to GH at least for now. Shes moved on and ive starting to accept this newest Kristina.

I don’t think this pilot will make it past the pilot stage. The premise seems pretty weak and NBC has a pilot with a similar plot but stronger cast

What’s the name of the NBC pilot that’s so similar?

Hatfield’s and McCoys
The show takes place in present-day Pittsburgh, with the blue-collar McCoys going to war with the wealthy Hatfields after a shocking death reignites their decades-long enmity.

And a few big names have been cast on that pilot in addition to some former soap stars.

Good for her! Always thought that they made a big mistake letting her go on GH. Glad to see she has so much going on now.

Not my first choice as a daughter for JB. I have a very strong feeling the pilot won’t air, but I hope I’m wrong.

GH Preview – Week of June 18, 2018

This week on General Hospital, as Carly (Laura Wright) is being drugged up with anti-psychotic meds at Ferncliff, it’s Jason (Steve Burton) to the rescue.  Carly’s bff finds a way to infiltrate the state mental institution. Meanwhile, Carly had been talking to Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), who says he will help her through her ordeal emotionally.  But is Carly really seeing Kevin, or is it just a figment of her imagination?

Elsewhere, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) seeks out her ex Julian (William deVry) as she tries to come to terms with the root cause of her issues with the men she chooses to be in her life.  Julian, who has gotten closer to Kim (Tamara Braun), now has a chance to try to help Alexis and make up for the ways in which he hurt her.  Could this be the beginning of the patching up of Julexis, or the final straw?

Sonny (Maurice Benard) has just learned that Mike (Max Gail) moved the body buried at Croton. Where did Mike take it?  How will this have future implications?

Here are more teasers for the action coming up on  GH:

MONDAY JUNE 18

Obrecht covers her tracks.

TUESDAY JUNE 19

WEDNESDAY JUNE 20

Michael confronts Chase.

THURSDAY JUNE 21
