Former OLTL & GH Favorite Kristen Alderson Makes Life-Changing Move: "Good-bye L.A. And To A Beautiful Chapter In My Life!"

After playing Starr Manning in New York City (since she was a little girl on One Life to Live) and the moving to Los Angeles to play the more grown up version on General Hospital, and then taking on the role of Kiki Jerome after the Prospect Park/ABC dispute, Kristen Alderson has decided to leave tinseltown, and head back to her home on the east coast.

In January of this year, Alderson announced she decided not to renew her contract with General Hospital wanting to experience life, and move on to new adventures. Today on her Twitter account, Kristen said to her fans and followers: “Goodbye LA & to a beautiful chapter in my life. I’ll always love you @duelly87 thank you for being my best friend.”

Thus speculation began from Alderson’s fan on social media, if she and her longtime boyfriend, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael Corinthos) have broken up.

Breakups hurt no matter who ends it. She got me through a bad breakup and I hope she knows I’m here for her too! Maybe we CAM drown the pain at Shake Shack soon. Bring mom & Pooka too!

I have been checking their twitters every day to sorta see what was going on, and was shocked today when I read her tweet about leaving LA! My husband thinks I am crazy ,to be checking tweets from people I don’t even know, but I feel like I know her and Chad. I have watched her since she was 6 or so every day in my living room, and then watched and laughed at all the videos she made with Chad, and I have to say I thought it was a Cinderella story “happy ever after” thing, and was shocked… Read more »

I know! I watched a few of their videos too and they were adorable together! The videos were fun, funny and they were so in sync with each other. Surprised at their split…but I tend to think her move back to New York might be career related too. Seems like she gave herself time to find something else and nothing materialised. Just a thought….

Yes, Rebecca I was thinking the same thing yesterday. Last week she tweeted that she took a “test”, maybe she wants to be a news anchor, or maybe it was a screen test she passed, she did not say but, I am sure she will be great at what ever she does.

Your too naive! Chad was young and inexperience. Kristen was a test. He passed and moved on. He is out trolling now that he has some experience under his belt and will hook up with the new Miss America that was recently added to GH. Just watch!

No, not naive, just wishing some people could make it work in this world. I have had my share of heartache, and the world is in a bad place now, so just some wishful thinking for a fairy tale ending for once. There are too many divorces and break ups. Now that I am older I see the wrong I did and wish the best for the younger generation. No, not naive at 56 years of age! I have a grandson who is 17 and is falling in love and I worry about him. As far as these soap stars,… Read more »

Kristen has grown up to become a very attractive young woman and a great actress. I loved her on OLTL (RIP) and GH, and miss seeing her. Wish her nothing but the best in the future. I’m very confident she’ll land on her feet and be just fine, both career and relationship-wise.

I watched Kristen and Eddie grow up on OLTL and love them both. I feel like they are my children. (At my age, I can say that about a lot of people.) I wish her nothing but the very best in her future. I hope she and Eddie continue acting.

I really liked Kristen on GH, and thought Kristen & Chad had a wonderful relationship. They seemed so much alike! I think her tweet is mysterious, and without a further comment from either of them, I’m not sure if they broke up or are just living on opposite coasts for awhile. Maybe Kristen just needs some time and space to regain her balance; Chad seems quite content with his job and house. Whatever is happening, I wish both of them peace of mind and happiness.

Kristen is a great talent and still miss watching her everyday. I will never forget the times she sang on OLTL, especially her duet with Cassie DiPaiva, “All That Jazz”, and “The Sun Will Come Up Tomorrow”. Best wishes to her!

This young talent will resurface again. I think Miss Alderson should stage work. So many of our favorite NY-based serial actors earned their chops on the stage, so she would have many mentors and connections.

Kristen is a very sweet girl and is genuinely talented. I hope that she gets cast in a play in NYC. I saw her in My Big Gay Italian Wedding a few years ago. She played a part that was extremely different from Starr or Kiki. She was quite good and very funny.
She’ll be okay. She just needs to regroup.

I wish her all the best. I know a lot of the fans feel like Aunts and Uncles to our Starr and Kristen because she grew up in front of us. I don’t know what prompted her decision but I hope that we will see her as a working actor again soon. Xoxox! Love you, Kristen!!!!

So sad to hear about her and Chad. I hope whatever her next adventure is it makes her happy. Wishing her well and thanking her for years of lovely performances. Just wish she could have gone out as Starr rather than Kiki, but will always remember that great final scene she had with Roger which brought all of us OLTL fans great closure.

Kristen will forever be our “Starr.” Plus, I’m extremely happy that she was allowed to grow into such a beautiful young lady on One Life to Live instead of being aged by the Network. That was one of the best decisions ABC and One Life to Live made.
You’re in my prayers, Kristen.

i applaud your decision and wish you the utmost best life has to offer. We (OLTL viewers) watched you grow up and I am confident that whatever you next choose to do you will excel! Thank you for endless hours of entertainment as Starr and laterals KiKi! Your New Hampshire fans love you!

I think Kristen was right to leave GH, and I also think she’s right to leave L.A. behind at this point. The Kiki character never clicked, and the way ABC and GH handled the OLTL/PP debacle left a bad taste in everyone’s mouth. The whole disaster of bringing those OLTL actors over and then refusing to let them go at any cost was a big mistake, and all about the ego of the showrunners. You notice Roger Howarth is the only one left, and is playing a recast character who is a bigger bust than Paul Ryan. What a shame.… Read more »

As so many others have stated, I, too, watched Kristen grow up on OLTL. Her talent continued to grow through the years, and she realized while at GH that there are many more opportunities out there for her to shine. Her singing skills equal her acting skills so, who knows, she could end up on Broadway! And you can’t blame her for wanting to go home. I wish her all the best, no matter where her talents take her.

Kristen, you were the heart of OLTL along with the rest of the cast and we will miss that show so much. But if you are coming back here to the east coast (Phila, NY) I am hoping you land an excellent job, because your talent is so wonderful. You are the best and don’t let anyone else deter you from your goals. Love you.

Have loved watching her 4 so many many yrs. She was so spectacular on OLTL, & continued 2 b just as awesome as KeKe on GH. I was thrilled that she & Chad got 2get her off the show 2, & was sorry it did not work out 4 them. I really miss seeing her smiling face & gr8 acting every day on TV. I hope she finds what she is looking 4 back on the East Coast & is truly very happy. I do hope & pray we have not seen the last of her acting in the future.… Read more »

GH’s Kirsten Storms Shares More Details on Her Brain Surgery and Recovery

On Sunday, Kirsten Storms (Maxie, General Hospital) posted a follow-up message on her Instagram account to her friends and followers on how she is doing following her brain surgery, and to answer any questions that may be out on there; so she decided to share further details.

Storms expressed: “First, thank you for all of the well wishes I’ve received over the last few days. 🥰 Little bit of info for those who are wondering.. I spent the last few years having random health issues that I disregarded as side affects to my medications or just something I was experiencing due to age. When I went to get an MRI for some severe neck pain I have been experiencing for the last few months (I assumed this neck pain was also causing my frequent “migraines”) my amazingly thorough orthopedist ordered an MRI of my head just to be on the “safe side” – even though that isn’t his area of expertise.  Truly a great doctor.  That’s when we stumbled upon a rather large, very full of fluid, cyst that was attached to the lower portion of brain. I feel very fortunate that my situation wasn’t more serious and that I had a wonderful neurosurgeon who immediately knew how to fix it. I’m not gonna lie, brain surgery had me nervous, but I’m immensely thankful to my family, friends, and incredible “work family” who have been supportive, kind and loving during a time when I’ve been feeling a lot of emotions. Work is a great place to be everyday and for the 2 months leading up to my surgery I found a lot of comfort being around the people I’ve worked beside for so many years. I’m excited to get back to it after my recovery. (Yes, they shaved a portion of my head, so please no comments if you don’t like my hair. It’s temporary.). Again, thank you to everyone for sending positive vibes my way. It’s not gone unnoticed. ♥️

Fun fact: I now firmly believe the new plates in my brain will give me some sort of special ability. Fingers crossed I can suddenly knit a sweater in 1 day. Ooo maybe 1 hour. 😮”

Please continue to send well-wishes to Kirsten via the comment section below as she is on the mend, and we look forward to her return to GH when she is recovered.
