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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Peter’s On Ice, But Is He “Dead” Dead?

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital provided more to the back-story of what Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) did with Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) body after Finn tussled with the guy and Peter fell down the stairwell and hitting his head on the wall, to his supposed death.

In story, Liz became worried when thinking back to how she suggested to Finn – and that they carried out –  putting Peter’s body in a freezer in the sub-basement of the hospital.

As she recalls their plot (to keep Peter’s body from being discovered until they have time to move him permanently), Anna  (Finola Hughes) is on the move of the hospital and uncovers a hidden service elevator that might just take her to the sub-basement, where she could discover Peter’s lifeless body.

But hold the phone! While we know it was revealed that Wes Ramsey departed GH, could it be that Anna could discover the freezer with no sign of Peter in it? Do you really think his reign of terror is over given that he is Cesar Faison’s bio-son?

Share your thoughts: Do you think Peter is really dead, or will the character come back to haunt everyone and try to get revenge on all who tried to stand in his way of Maxie and his child? Comment below.
