So the cat is out of the bag, sort of speak! Ashley Jones has joined General Hospital as Kristina’s (Lexi Ainsworth) seemingly blackmailing professor Parker Forsyth!

For weeks, GH fans have speculated as to the gender of “Parker” as it could be a man or woman’s name, but according to Soap Opera Digest, Jones has been holding on to the secret.

The former Bold and the Beautiful star, where she has played Bridget Forrester on and off since 2004, related on her new GH gig: “They were so secretive about it that I’ve been scared to tell anyone. They made it very clear that (Parker’s gender) was a reveal and they didn’t want me to give it away.”

She added: “I’ve watched General Hospital over the years, so it’s just a pleasure to see all these people on set and in and out of the makeup room.”   So far, Jones has shot two episodes of the long-running ABC daytime drama series.

So, what do you think of Ashley Jones playing “Parker”?  Is your interest further piqued in the Kristina storyline? How do you think this will all reveal itself and play out? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

I had assumed Parker was a female, just from Kristina’s lack of male pronouns and, honestly, this is one of the only stories that has me truly interested on the show. I think it’s realistic for someone as young as Kristina to explore her sexuality, plus the added soapy intrigue of the professor/blackmail angle, and I’ve loved both Lexi and Ashley as actresses, so I’m sure their performances will be great. Seems like a great twist overall, but we’ll see if the writing team is up to the task as it continues.

I hope this doesn’t fade to the background like B&Bs lesbian story did. Since AMC died, a lesbian story has been missing in daytime! Hopefully this story will last longer & be well written!

Agree with you a million percent, Tay!

Yes, Yes, Yes……love Ashley Jones as Parker Forsyth and love the storyline!

Please have more air time for “Parker” and hoping she and Kristina get together….it’s wonderful for GH to bring us a fresh, interesting couple storyline….Brad and Lucas are boring…yawn, yawn, yawn.

Parker could help Kristina find herself while falling in love with her at the same time. I know Parker is married but this happens in real life.

More Ashley Jones, a.k.a. Parker!!!!

My interest is piqued. Bring it on! I’m not too particular about how this plays out, as long as the professor is not connected to any of the mob families or The Cassidines. However it would be cool if Parker had a past relationship with Hayden…

Meh, I’m sure this is a short-term stunt casting role. She’ll not be on contract.
A few episodes and she’s gone is my guess.

I rather hope so, primarily because I find the character of Kristina—as currently written—to be so sullen, unpleasant and annoying, that I cannot imagine any man, woman….or even beast….being remotely attracted to her.

Ashley Jones is a real “get” for GH. I hope her acting talent is well used. The storyline has great potential, especially if it is a character and issue-driven story about sexuality, and not merely sensationalistic. And Lexi Ainsworth as Krissy has the talent to make it work, along with Ms. Jones.

Interestingly enough, it is already bringing out the homophobes on another site. So, certainly it has caught the viewers’ attention. I just hope discussion on this board about the story remains respectful, non-judgmental, and non-discriminatory.

Is it gonna b a lesbian act cause Kristina s aid she had to sleep with a professor to get a passing grade?

SZima

As I recall, Kristina said she propositioned the professor, but didn’t sleep with her.

It was a surprise for sure, at first it didn’t sink in and then, wham, it did. That puts a different twist on things, should be interesting to see how it unfolds. Kristina sure is in a pickle tho.

I am just so happy that Lexi is back on GH that I don’t care what her story is. That said, this is a great twist that can go any direction. She will be great!

I just want GH to return to its roots! GH was about the lives surrounding the hospital. They steered away from it and made me lose interest , while having mob stories are interesting and have a majority of actors surrounding those story lines, I’m happy to bring in Dr. Parker. I welcome her with open arms!

Tim

If Parker is gay she will be GH’s first lesbian character in a major role,although I seem to remember GH having a lesbian character back in the 70’s or 80’s

Ryan

I never watched GH to see normal daily issues play out. I’m probably one of the minority in regards to breastfeeding in public. I say cover yourself. It’s not about anything other then just plain old modesty for me. As for same sex relationships, I see enough in daily life that I just don’t care to see it on tv. Consider me over it!

I am truly beyond thrilled that Professor Parker is a woman and not a man and they have got a proven talent like Ashley Jones to play the role. One of the best storyline decisions and casting surprises in years on this show. GH really honestly needs this type of dramatic, angsty, juicy, soapy and game changing story telling. I am over the moon right now that it is a popular legacy character like Kristina they are putting in this position, whom is full of connections and tied to several core families, and not some unknown unconnected newbie like a Darby.

Lexi Ainsworth is such an excellent young performer and proved in the past she can handle heavy storyline material so she’s got the acting chops to pull this off. We have no idea what Kristina has been up to these last three years cause she’s been offscreen and we’ve have only heard stories about all these bad breakups with a string of boys so there is plenty of room for this to be a believable logical twist.

A lot of buzz has been building in the last few weeks about how Kristina has never used the words “he or him” when talking about Parker to Sam so it looks like people were on to something with that. Molly, Alexis, and Sonny have also brought up “the guys or the boys” but at no point did Kristina ever really confirm or deny anything. I can’t wait for Monday’s episode!!!!

Tristan

Agree, 100% Nice that this site isn’t generating the homophobia implicit on another site where you recently posted. Enjoyed your post there, as well. It was needed.

Love the potential for this storyline!

Never cared for this particular actress when she was on B&B….Jennifer Finnigan made a far better Bridget! As a matter fact, between that particular recast, Stephanie’s late life discovery of love of pantsuits and the total remolding of the program as “The Brooke Logan Show,” I finally just said an exasperated thanks, but no thanks! That was over a decade ago!

Hi Shay, I had to go “Back in Time” [Great song by Huey Lewis and the News!] in order to speak with you. Apparently your problem has become mine since I was NOT a Sabrina fan. A poster who you are well aware of is breathing down my back and I dont know why? Well, actually, I do, she is jealous that you, Cee Cee and I have a good relationship here. This is only based on our feelings and the sweetness that we share. I feel the same for Jim H. He is a nice guy with a great sense of humor and I love reading his posts and replying to his opinions. That said, this women who has an ax to grind, she took a major swing at me and I swung back and MF took down our conversations! I understand this site has an obligation to keep peace. This is about soaps and it shouldnt be personal. BUT, this women has made it personal. She should be put on notice. I see now where she is trying to recruit new posters that have come out of the wood work because of Sabs death to agree with her and pin them against me! What the F! I am a nice guy who is passionate about my soaps. My anger is towards the character not the actor! This women who Cee Cee use to tangle with is unstable. She is a bully. I notice now when I post something, No MATTER what I say she says the opposite and then her new flunky chimes in against me! OMG, I feel as if I am in high school. I am sad that MF wouldnt publish my rebuttal against my stalker BUT I will move on and see what happens. I NEVER have replied to her BS in the past. When she attacked me, I had to speak up. Its America, right! Bye Shay, thanks for hearing meow out! [I hope this gets published!]

Sorry to do this, but it’s like an earworm that just won’t go away (even after reading the article and comments) — the phrase is “so to speak” not “sort of speak.”

Ah, there, I can move on now.

Both sides now hurt her physically and politically. Her character incite is going to be very destructive unintentionally, emotionally-stent, and self-perpetuating in the future. Let’s hope!

GH Nurses’ Ball 2019 Part One: Nina’s Red Carpet Arrival Commentary And Locking Eyes With Jax

On Friday’s first installment of the 2019 GH Nurses’ Ball episodes, it was red carpet time in Port Charles as all of the most famous and infamous residents got dressed to the nines and to impress.

This year, Nina Cassadine (Michelle Stafford) is back for her on-camera hosting duties covering the arrivals on the live-stream, but is joined by Crimson’s New York fashion editor, Sydney Val Jean played by guest star Chandra Wilson of Grey’s Anatomy.  And as you’d expect, these two fashionistas battle it out at times on the carpet for attention.

Throughout the arrivals, and through this episode, this one really belonged to the talents of Michelle Stafford, who through her comedic, romantic, and dramatic timing, made for some of the best moments.  In a surprise, when Nina begins to choke after interviewing Peter (Wes Ramsey), Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and Lulu (Emme Rylan),  she excuses herself and ends up outside where Jax (Ingo Rademacher) appears and offers her some champagne.  The two seem to be clearly smitten with each other! Nina accepts his drink, and thanks him, and then goes back inside to her hosting gig, while Jax looks very intrigued by Nina.  Previously, Nina gave a major kiss to Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) when he appeared on the red carpet.

Some of the more shocking …. or interesting red carpet arrivals included: Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) showing up with Sam (Kelly Monaco) on his arm, and then getting into words with Sonny (Maurice Benard), who tells the cult leader that family means everything to him and that there is nothing he wouldn’t do for the people he loves.  Shiloh is convinced Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) will come back to “Dawn of Day”.

When Anna (Finola Hughes) and Finn (Michael Easton) stroll down the red carpet, they get distracted when a dapper Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) shows up, clearly intent on wooing back Anna, to which Anna looks caught by her feelings for both men while Finn is pissed at the game’s Robert is playing.  Later, Finn confronts Robert about his ring.

Everyone was shocked when Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) showed up arm and arm with Ava Jerome (Maura West).  We later learn that this is an attempt to smoke out Ryan, who Ava believes will show his face at the ball.   Lucy (Lynn Herring), the hostess with the mostess, comes up with a plan to get Kevin away from Ava, not knowing they are not romantically together and tries to, perhaps, rekindle their romance up in a Metro Court hotel room.  Meanwhile, Scott (Kin Shriner) wants to get Ava away from Kevin, so he heads up to Lucy’s room with Ava to show her and to catch Kevin and Lucy together, but we don’t know what they saw when the door opened!

Photo: ABC

Meanwhile in Toronto, Canada, Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Laura (Genie Francis) come to realizing they have been tied up and there is a gas leak in the cabin.  Laura realizes Ryan is trying to kill her in an explosion just as he was supposed to have perished in at the fun house years ago.  It appears Ryan set a trap for Laura and Curtis and fled the scene.  The two extricate themselves before running from the cabin just as it blows up!

Back at the ball other notable couples have arrived from: Chase (Josh Swickard) and Willow (Katelyn MacMullen), to Michael (Chad Duell) and Sasha (Sofia Mattson), to Franco (Roger Howarth) and Liz (Rebecca Herbst), to the GH nurses crew.

The episode ends with an announcer telling all the guests to take their seats as its just about showtime!  And of note:  Is the opening title sequence music changed to a new theme for GH, or is it just for the Nurses’ Ball episodes? That’s one of the buzziest questions today.

So, what did you think of the red carpet arrivals?  Michelle Stafford’s performance?  Jax meeting Nina? What do you think will happen next with Ryan?  Comment below

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Oscar’s Memorial Brings With It Remembrances By Those Who Loved Him

On Monday’s emotional episode of General Hospital, Ned (Wally Kurth) and Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) summoned family, friends, and loved ones to honor Oscar Nero (Garren Stitt), since he just past away due to his battle with brain cancer.  Oscar had his own way he wanted everyone to mourn his death and Ned and Olivia carried out his wishes.

When everyone gathers together, Ned and Olivia announce that Oscar wanted this to be a celebration.  After everyone arrives they sit picnic-style and some get up to speak to remember the amazing young man that Oscar was.  It turns out to be Michael (Chad Duell) who starts the tribute by saying that Oscar was brave to date his intimidating sister.  Next, Cameron (William Lipton) touches on his journey to friendship with Oscar.  Joss (Eden McCoy) finds the courage to go next and remembers how she had a crush on Oscar and how he wasn’t easy to talk to but how she was intrigued because he was mysterious. She then tells show she eventually fell in love with Oscar, and how she will never forget him.  When Drew (Billy Miller) gets up next, he breaks everyone’s heart by stating that he will be eternally grateful to have known his son and will always carry him in his heart.

Next, Ned asks everyone to follow him to the meadow.  Once there, Ned and Olivia hand out seeds to the attendees.  Then, Ned and Olivia reveal a plaque dedicated to Oscar, as everyone throw up seeds that land in the grass for it to grow.

Finally, Kim (Tamara Braun) speaks. She talks about how she raised Oscar on her own, and how after she learned he was sick, she brought him to Port Charles so he could meet his true family.  And with the analogy of the seeds, she says it helped Oscar blossom and how it enriched his young life.  In a heartbreaking moment, she thanks Drew for giving her son courage and being his dad when he needed it, and to Joss for being her son’s first love.  Kim hopes that Joss will come back to the meadow often and think of him.  They share an emotional hug.

Later, after Drew thanks Ned and Olivia for putting this all together for his son, Sam (Kelly Monaco) finds him and tells him he was a great father … and is a great father.  He wants to make sure that Scout knows he loves her.

Back at the meadow, Sonny (Maurice Benard) finds Kim in tears alone at Oscar’s plaque. He tells her he understands the deep pain and void she is going through, but she has to hold on to how Oscar touched so many lives.   Once Sonny leaves, Kim in tears looks up to the sky and says she’ll always love her baby boy.

The episode featured touching performances by Tamara Braun, Billy Miller, Eden McCoy, and William Lipton, who all carried the Oscar dying storyline so beautifully along with Garren Sttit.  Additional kudos go to Lisa LoCicero and Wally Kurth, who as Olivia and Ned, kept Oscar’s memorial moving forward, and were also emotional throughout.

So, what did you think of the episode and the performances? Are you sad Oscar is gone?  Comment below.
