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!

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?

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

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!!!!

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.

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!]

Love love loved it…. What a shock! And great new writing and subject matter! GH has pulled it off again for being the most interesting and EDGY soap on the air! Bring it on… Kristina discovering that she may be a lesbian has my vote!!!

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!

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Franco Looks In The Mirror … And Believing He Is Drew Kisses Kim

This week on General Hospital, viewers have seen that when Franco (Roger Howarth) awoke from his mind-mapping implantation  (thanks to Shiloh and Dr Cabot) he woke up saying that he is “Drew Cain”.  Thus, as far we know, Franco now carries the life and memories of Drew from 2012 and back, and as of now, has no trace of Franco’s memories.

When Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) and Drew (Billy Miller) try to make Franco understand in his confusion what transpired,  Liz brings a mirror to Franco to see his face, which makes this all the more terrifying for him.  Liz insists to him that she is wife, but he tells her that he is sorry but he does not recognize her.  Franco insists he is going to leave town and Drew asks him to please stay put, as Liz promises that they can reverse what happened to him.  But can Liz really promise that?

Later, Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) fills Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Steve Burton) in on what happened and how Franco now was implanted with Drew’s memories, which leaves them stunned.  That means Franco, who is one of the people Jason loathes most in the world – now believes he is Jason’t twin brother.

Meanwhile, as Kim (Tamara Braun) and Julian (William deVry) prepare to leave Port Charles for Manhattan and start live anew, (so Kim can not be haunted by her life in Port Charles from the recent death of her son, Oscar) things are about to make a shocking turn … for her.

Back at GH, Liz is upset when Franco decides he must get out of his hospital room.  Liz is scared he will just skip town knowing he feels he has no ties there.  Drew reassures her that because he is a version of him, the pull will be way too strong for him to exit Port Charles.

Courtesy/ABC

Kim is now at the hospital getting ready to turn in her resignation letter and runs into Franco.  He recognizes her and calls her “Kim!” You can tell he is quite smitten with her.  Kim is not sure why Franco is acting that way.  She announces she is leaving Port Charles to which he says he is going to come with her. She sees he has a hospital ID bracelet on, so she thinks something has happened.  Just then, Franco tells her about the first time Drew Cain and her met up! This shocks Kim  … and the next thing you know … he moves in for a major kiss and lip-lock as Drew and Liz look on.

Breaking News

Constance Towers Returns To GH As Helena Cassadine … But Just How Does She Appear?

Now, any General Hospital fan knows that if there is skullduggery and evil going down, Helena Cassadine (whether dead or alive) is usually somehow involved when it comes to the lives of certain people in Port Charles.

And … some major storyline news from TV Line reveals that on next Monday’s August 19th episode of the ABC soap opera, Constance Towers reprises her role as the evil one herself … Helena!

Apparently, look for Helena to appear in a flashback with none other than Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) and about Drew Cain’s time in Afghanistan.  That scene might hold a key to just what Shiloh wants now that he has implanted Drew’s memories into Franco (Roget Howath), thanks to Dr. Cabot’s work.  But could what is revealed also relate to the story that will see Billy Miller (Drew) exit the canvas later this month? Stay tuned.

Viewers last saw Helena alive in story until November of 2016, but then she was part of Jake’s hallucinations that were a part of the chimera storyline that climaxed at the Nurses’ Ball back in May of 2017.

So what do you think Helena’s presence in a flashback will reveal? And, who is ultimately having that flashback? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Kelly Monaco Addresses Billy Miller’s Departure From GH

In a post via her twitter account, General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) shared her heartbreak on her longtime scene partner, Billy Miller’s (Drew) exit from the ABC daytime drama series.  This was the first time that Kelly addressed the situation in a public forum.

Miller came on to GH back in 2014 as Jason Morgan, following the departure of Steve Burton, who then wound up on Y&R.  When Burton returned to GH in 2017, Miller’s part was then turned-in-to, Jason’s twin, Drew Cain.

Through a great portion of Miller’s run on GH, he was paired romantically on -screen with Monaco and the duo were, and have remained, one of the most popular duo’s in daytime.

Monaco expressed the following in her message: “I feel like I have to address this situation. #BillyMiller ‘s untimely departure from #gh. Honestly, I can not come up with the words to describe how I feel about this decision… a decision that may not be what our audience thinks to be true. I’m heartbroken… more to come.”
