Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) took to her twitter account last night to let her thoughts be known on the dismissal of her on-screen daughter, Lexi Ainsworth (Kristina) from General Hospital!

Nancy: “It is no secret how much I love Lexi, and how talented I think she is. It will also come as no surprise that I am sad about her leaving… and yes, tears were shed.

Very often things out of our control turn out to be the most perfect orchestration of circumstances that lead to even better experiences, that shape our lives in profound ways. As much as I will miss Lexi, I believe this will end up being a blessing for her. At 19, there are endless acting opportunities, and now she is free to pursue them. My TV baby is a beautiful, classy young woman with a fantastically, supportive family, and a bright, bright future. I’m so excited for her.”

As we previously stated, we wish the best to Lexi on all her future endeavors and can’t wait to see what the entertainment world holds next for her!

General hospital is crazy for letting Lexi go. Ethan and Kristina would have been a sweet love story. I wish Lexi all the best! It won’t take long for someone to snatch her up! Thanks for the article. 🙂

I totally agree! After falling in love with Kristina and Ethan via YouTube clips I was ready to start watching GH again (after almost 20 years) to see these two in a sweet love story. Now I know not to bother because it won’t be the same chemistry with a recasted Kristina. There is no Kristina without Lexi and I don’t see a point in watching a show that is clearly just phoning it in.

GH really? She’s 19 but looks younger. It’s a disadvantage right now on GH, but it will turn out good for her in the long run. She can be cast younger but work full hours now and hell, when she’s in her 30’s look 20’s , 40’s, look 30!

So glad she’s gone, her annoying acting was fast forwarded as soon as I saw her face. Her pairing with Ethan was horrible and silly, why would he be attracted to someone like that after being with the gorgeous Maya. The writers should give Maxi & Ethan a try, they’re both crazy and unpredictable, what great chemistry these two would create.

Lexi will missed greatly. She was acting the way TPTB asked and wrote the character Kristina.

I’m disappointed to see someone knocking Lexi on her looks — she is beautiful. Maya was so boring — I’d rather watch paint dry then watch her.

Lexi will go far and Mayannie will be flipping burgers.

Sorry to have disappointed you, no not really, Lexi maybe beautiful to you, but to me she looks like a troll. Yeah I’m sure she will go as far as her forehead will take her.

Are you saying that the actress that plays Maya can only flip hamburgers in her future and White Lexi will be this big star? Could those feeling be because the actress that plays Maya is Black? How can you tell what her future will be? Maybe because you think the actor that plays Ethan should be paired with a White woman and not a Black one. The character of Ethan should be paired with a woman and not someone who looks like they are 15yrs old as Lexi’s looked with him. As for someone flipping burger, is that what you do! This is just my opinion as was yours.

Emily, so sorry to disappoint you on your prediction for the character that played Mya (that she would be flipping burgers) but she is currently cast on Charlie’s Angels as o
ne of the angels

The powers that be had plenty of opportunities to write Kristina as maturing but they were lazy!

Both Lexi and Annie are beautiful actresses and neither will be flipping burgers as far as I am concerned.

Jack – I never said Annie (Maya) wasn’t attractive. I just stated that the Maya character was boring to me. Since the writers wrote her off the canvas I thought the character Kristina should have been written as maturing into a young woman rather than chasing Ethan.

Waltina – Race has absolutely nothing to do with my opinion. I don’t think Annie or Lexi will be flipping burgers at any point in their future. The character Maya was written off and now the character Kristina should be written off as well.

Jack
Jack

Emily- I never said that you did, I replied to your statement regarding Lexi looks, you think she’s beautiful, I don’t, it’s not a big deal, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Emily

miss C – I’m not disappointed at all. Maya or Mya as you incorrectly stated, whose real name is Annie is indeed on Charlie’s Angels. From what I hear the show is not doing well in the ratings. I think she should go back to GH and be with Ethan since he does need a real woman (black or white) and the writers sure know how to write for women, right? Carly — self-absorbed, Liz — needy, Robin — overbearring, etc.

Waltina Too

Just an FYI…Charlie’s Angels has been cancelled. Annie are you okay? Are you okay Annie? Welcome back to GH Maya!!!

I hope Maya will not be back, I found her character supremely boring and I felt like she & Ethan were forced on us. Personally I feel Nathan (Ethan) & Lexi (Kristina) have WAY more chemistry and I am sadden that she is leaving. I think this is a bad decision on GH’s part as Lexi/Kristina is popular with alot of fans and on the heels of the Megan Ward recast since I’m hearing they are planning to bring Krissy back aged, they are alienating more fans at a time so precarious for soaps. In any case I wish Lexi all the luck in the future and have no doubt she will be successful.

I HATE the character with a passion (especially paired with Ethan), but I never want to see someone lose their job. I wish Lexi all the best

Lexi Ainsworth will do extremely well. All the best to her.

How disappointing! Lexi and Nathan’s Ethina could have been a beautiful coming of age lovestory.

It’s a shame to hear of Lexi’s firing. She is super talented and I will miss her on my screen.

This was a huge mistake and loss for General Hospital! Lexi Ainsworth is Kristina and no one will be able to replace her. The ratings for the show will continue to go down if they do not bring this talented emmy worthy actress back to the canvas. She has great chemistry with every actor and actress on the show. Her and Nathan were the most exciting story on the show in my opinion and many others opinions. Also the Davis girls was so cute and fun to watch but without Lexi is just dosent work. Lexi as kristina was so important to the heart of the show you take someone as good and sweet as her out and you loose viewers. Please Gh bring Lexi back and let her just grow on the show theres no reason to let her go!!! We love her!!!

If she was fired because of the way she looks well that was wrong to begin with. Many women at kristina’s age are small and petite. Not every women has to have big boobs to appear older. Its not realistic for every women to be a barbie doll. The viewers want to see normal every day people of all shapes and sizes because thats the way the real world is. Kristina is beautiful inside and out. It dosent make scenes to send kristina away and bring her back a month later with bigger boobs and a rough edgey personality as seen in a circulating audition tape. No one is going to buy the switch. Lexi is kristina she portrays her perfectly!!

They are crazy for letting Lexi go! She is Kristina Davis, there is no replacing her, she made the role Kristina hers and hers only!
Her and Nathan of the best chemistry I have ever seen, I watch GH because of them!
They need to own up to their mistake and rehire her!!

I watch GH because of them! They need to own up to their mistake and rehire her!! Lexi is beyond beautiful and looks her age (19)! Grow Up GH!

I love Lexi also. But I think it’s time to replace her before she has a REAL RELATIONSHIP.It seems kind of greepy for someone Ethans age to be interested in someone so young. Not a day over 16. The girl that is going to replace her, will be perfect for the part. I wish LEXI very luck. I don’t think she will need it. She is very talented.

Sheila

Lexi is almost 19 and so is the character Kristina. Ethan is supposed to be 24 or 25 on the show; however, Nathan is 23 in real life.

ETHINA IS LOVE!!! The real Ethina is Lexi and Nathan.

Beyond beautiful???? I don’t get it. So glad that disgusting pairing is over.

You must be talking about Maya and Ethan!

Sheila

I’m referring to Kristina and Ethan!! It doesn’t matter if he’s 19 or 23 the chemistry between them is non exsistant. In real life Nathan would not look twice at that girl.

Sheila
Sheila

I know who you were referring to and I disagree a million times over.

The chemistry is absolutely there and it’s a shame that you don’t see it.

Why did you switch to Nathan when you were referring to Ethan? Sounds like you need to get your story straight.

steve

Because I said REAL LIFE!!! Get your eyes checked.

Kerry

LOL!, I agree with the Sheila/Steve comments. It’s so funny that some people think just because they believe that two people have chemistry we all should believe it. Lexi/Kristina & Nathan/Ethan have as much chemistry as a skunk and a porcupine.

Emily
Emily

That’s pretty funny; HOWEVER, Nathan’s real-life girlfriend Maria Aceves bears a STRIKING resemblence to Lexi Ainsworth.

HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM…………………………

I predict that Nathan and Lexi will be together in a couple of years.

YEAH BABY!!!! NEXI IS LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope Maya comes back, she’s Sexy, Hot & Gorgeous!!!! Mayan have Great Chemistry!!! Watching Kristina trying to force a relationship with Ethan was pretty pathetic and boring, I fast forwarded all their scenes together because she’s so annoying.

Yes, I hope Maya comes back to GH. She will help put the final nail in the coffin.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GH Preview – Week of June 18, 2018

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?
