GENERAL HOSPITAL: Kristina Opens Up About Her Sexuality!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

Last week on Friday’s General Hospital, Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) finally revealed her thoughts on where she is at with her sexuality in a frank conversation with her sister Molly (Hayley Pullos).

It begins when Molly questions Kritina as to when she was planning on telling her parents that she’s gay.  Kristina says she is actually confused and doesn’t know if she is gay, but that she is questioning her sexuality.  She even discusses her bad relationships with her past boyfriends, when it is brought up by Molly.  Kristina thinks she is bisexual, but she worries what Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) will think if they were to find out.  Later, Molly asked Kristina to tell her more about her feelings for Parker (Ashley Jones).  It was clear she is smitten with her professor!  In addition on last Thursday’s episode, Kristina had finally admitted to her parents what happened at college, and how she failed her class and then was suspended, because she came on her professor.

In tears, she says it was a stupid stupid mistake. Sonny does not left her off the hook so easily, and admits he’s disappointed in her, because of the opportunity they gave her, but that he will ensure she gets back into school in the fall.  However, Kristina doesn’t want to go back admitting she feels lost, and she doesn’t know who she, or where she’s headed.   And fast forward to Friday’s episode, Sonny had Max investigating the professor Kristina became involved with thinking it’s a man.  Sonny wants Max to send the guy a message.  He has no idea that Parker is a woman.

In the latest edition of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Lexi Ainsworth related her thoughts on Kristina questioning her sexuality: “General Hospital has always been really great about touching on subjects like this, socially revelant issues, and this is a huge one. Everyone is talking right now about sexuality being fluid, and there are many people who have come out and said that they’re not just attracted to one sex: they’re attracted to who they’re attracted to, whether it be a man, woman, transgender.   It doesn’t matter: love is a universal thing.”

So, do you hope GH makes Kristina bisexual?  Do you hope she will turn out to be  gay?  Do you hope the show explores Parker and Kristina’s relationship?  What did you think of the scenes between Kristina and Molly, and Kristina and Sonny and Alexis on last week’s GH?

I do not mind about Kristina opening up about her sexuality, I do mind how it is done.. There is no solid drama, no intense moments, no gripping story, it is lame. It is a huge part of a person’s life for her/him to find their true selves and their struggle getting to that point.. The story is absent of the journey.. It is rushed, put together as a show piece and not a stable. GH is LAME .. the horrible breastfeeding story is an embarrassment to people’s intelligence / lame the Caisimon story is either a very lame comedy… Read more »

I agree with you 100%. Everyone couldn’t wait to get rid of Carlivati but they made a huge mistake. At least Carlivati kept it interesting and you could see that everything was headed somewhere. They should have just given him a co-writer to ground his stories a bit more, because, towards the end, they were getting a bit bizarre. But there is nothing worse in my mind, then these stories that seem to be going nowhere because the writers haven’t figured out what they want to do. There is character assassination left and right. Is Julian good or bad? We… Read more »

Hi su0000 Oh my gosh, I’m in total agreement with you on every point you made!!!! haha ha #GHISLAME GH is always lame. I have it playing in the background, and these days, I rarely will look up and watch it…I listen to it like it’s radio. So many show piece events, Morgan’s bipolar, Tracey and her medical issue, Nathan and this Claudette chick, what the hell….where’s the real drama?!?! What happened to GH, you are so right, what do you call them, the Queens of Snooze? GH definitely needs fresh and younger writers, new blood, not old daytime blood.… Read more »

Agreed, Jeremy…you always make good points.
I think that Claudette ( I knew before Claudette was personified), will be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. She will materialize in PC and that will be he end of Nathan and Maxie. There is a little order in this chaos…LOL.
I knew since the ‘glove’ in the tux incident that Maxie and Nathan were headed downhill. TPTB do not want Nathan and Maxie together anymore.
Let’s not even talk about Morgan. Ugh!!
New blood?? Oh, boy, Jeremy…careful now. You will be called an ageist. LOL.

@ CeeCee, yes, I do realize my wording wasn’t exactly what I was attempting to say. I suppose what I meant to say was that these four remaining soaps, and for me as a view, I watch DAYS and listen/watch GH, new writers to daytime should be considered, we see recycled stories over and over and over from the ‘seasoned’ daytime writers. Why not allow, any NEW writers to get in there and give us something new to talk about, new adventures, new mysteries, GH is lacking in adventure and mystery.

My dearest Jeremy. Again, my attempt at sarcasm failed miserably. LOL. I agree with you about this, but in past posts, each time su, I or anyone else even mentioned the word, ‘ young ‘ or ‘new’, we were labeled ageists. I cannot blame the fans, i do understand thrir devotion to the vets. But, it is a vicious circle….there needs to always be room for younger actors. Sadly, for Days, some of the youg ‘gang’ are failing ….however, they must start somewhere. Trust me, my friend. I found nothing wrong with your writing.

You go, girl, SuzieQ. Love your post. What TPTB are doing is beating around the bush. Make her gay, already!!!! I think Kristina is old enough to know herself….this vacillation is not doing it for me. I think she just worries about how her parents will handle the fact that she is gay; or what her friends will think, and/or eill they drop her as a friend. I do not like the lingering of “she MAY be gay”. I could be wrong, I do not know. But, two of my very best friends are gay. These guys have known how… Read more »

I agree. The Crimson story and the breastfeeding kind of idiotic- I don’t care if Kristina is gay bi or straight. I miss Ron Carlivati’s writing and when they canned him they said he was doing other projects- what projects- Ron, where are you and when can we hear from you? Why is there no money in budgets so we can’t have on-location and regulars get bumped to recurring- I mean, hello, the number of commercials has steadily increased over the years. I would pay for Netflix of Hulu or whatever if they could come up with a good soap.… Read more »

Her sexuality is probably fluid because ABC wants to test the waters, get a sense how viewers are going to react– if positive, Kristina will be gay; if negative she will figure out she is straight after all. Making the character sexuality fluid sounds progressive on the surface of it, but in the end they might be just covering their butts in case there is a homophobic backlash at making a legacy character homosexual– making her fluid gives them a way out that doesn’t involving killing the character off like Days did when they lost their nerve to support a… Read more »

Love this reasoning, Mary….very sound. Is Kristina gay,mstraight, or bi….dense on the viewers’ reception. So en pointe.
I believe the same thing will happen to Paul on Days. Considering how Will Horton’s gay character went ‘down’ (pun intended), TPTB do not want the same backlash from fans. So, they will ‘straighten’ Paul out. Bunch of hypocrites, Mary.
Smart post, Mary.

Exactly, Liz. We know they exist; but will the network be ok with it, as you stated.

I know that Mary SF would not make such a statement without thought. She knows exactly what she’s talking about. And, we are in agreement.

And it was just a cardboard kiss–no drama, no real story–the state of GH, unfortunately. We don’t care about any of these characters because we don’t “know” them.

Your theory doesn’t hold any water. GH already has 3 openly gay characters, 1 of which is a legacy character (Lucas). Sure, they only get a fraction of the screentime as other characters, but they still exist!

Mary SF
Guest
Mary SF

Having token gay characters two of which are merely recurring and not woven into the fabric of the history of the show is not the same thing as making a legacy character from a major family openly gay and having that story front burner and permanent. Yes Lucas is a legacy character and is gay, but after his coming out story he was written off the show and only came back recently and right now he might as well be a priest because after Ron left any or all realistic depictions of a gay sex life went out the window.… Read more »

Mary’s theory is very sound, Gh 1000. We are talking about a completely different person here, different gender, different personality. Kristina as gay, or bi is a new concept for fans….having known her forever as being into boys/men. We are not in THE MIDDLE AGES here…we are aware they exist. However, as Mary, i do believe TPTB have their BIG BROTHER eye opened wide. ‘They’ do want to test the waters….’they’ do want to see if the fans will conform or condone. It never is as cut and dry as you think. And, do not ever ridicule/underestimate another’s post. State… Read more »

Just because they exist doesn’t mean that ABC is 100% on board. I bet every time there’s a gay kiss, wedding or whatever the comment line goes nuts. Everything they’ve been doing lately is pandering to the few vocal viewers so I don’t doubt the testing the waters theory.

Gh1000

ABC, across the board and compared to NBC and CBS, is very progressive when it comes to LGBT visibility. There is LGBT talent on the news and the talk shows, there are LGBT characters on GH and in their primetime programming. Why would the execs at ABC hestitate to show a bisexual character?

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

Is that why Days killed off Will?….because the soap is so progressive? The only gay character left is Paul, whom I believe, will be ‘ungayed’. At least, GH has an on-going romance between Brad and Lucas. How long this lasts remains to be seen. They could break up as any other couple. Days completely disintegrated all gay characters. Paul only showed up, recently. It was ‘assumed’ he was around. Besides, you said the theory of Mary’s ‘testing the waters’, held no water. But, now you agree. I am glad you see this now.

My point is that this storyline just got started. It’s too early to make judgements on how well the story is going to play out. Maybe they are testing the waters out, Kristina’s character has never been fleshed out anyway (semi-spoiled mob princess isn’t very deep). Why not take a breath and see if the the scripts, the acting, and the chemistry can create a good story?

Melissa

I really like that they are exploring Kristina’s gender fluidity. I just wish it were with a peer and not a professor. They are introducing a power dynamic that is sometimes abused on college campuses. Plus Parker is a married women which makes Kristina a potential home wrecker on top of everything else. I would have liked it better if Kristina found herself attracted to someone in PC closer to her age. Valerie perhaps?

And in what was otherwise a good storyline, there was the preposterous idea that Max could get from PC to Middletown and immediately dig up info on Molly all within what must have been an hour! Kristina saw Sonny should not have confronted Kristina until the next day at least. It’s just bad storytelling.

@ Nancy, maybe Molly didn’t sleep with TJ, maybe she said she did because of the conversation with Kristina beforehand, maybe Molly mislead everyone, to conform and be like everyone – which would be out of character for Molly to do, but hey, it’s possible, if we didn’t SEE that scene happen, it’s a possibility that Molly and TJ didn’t go all the way. If Molly & TJ did have sex, I believe after the few years dating and being together, the show would have shown bits and pieces to show the maturity levels of both characters and the evolution… Read more »

I have no problem if she is straight, gay or bi…my problem with GH is these stories are not well connected to other stories or characters…it seems the writers have trouble connecting dots and they fall all over the place…instead of connecting Kristina to a current cast member like Kiki they just add another character to the show like Parker-their little affair is off camera…thats how they seem to write much of this show…instead of working in the characters they have they just add someone new to move their story…like Maxie and Nathan-instead of having maybe Valerie as his ex… Read more »

I totally forgot about her and now vaguely remember a pretty blonde little girl from years ago – who was her mother and where did she go? What about Kevin Collins is he 86’d as well? I would be very much in favor of a Dallas inspired it was all a dream and revive AJ Quatermaine, Connie Falconari- love love her and not as the perennial victim Sage- also Alan Qartermaine, Helena, Tony and bring back Johnny from prison and way more Kathleen Gatti -fire her from the hospital and turn her back into pure evil genius.

True, jimh, but that is the nature of this soap, none more so than when Ron C. was in charge of the stories. I had hoped that there would be a tendency away from that habit with a new writing team, but there is still too much heresay, off-camera action going on. Having said that, am I the only one who thinks that Parker’s main squeeze should have been Lomax? What a delicious dilemma that would have created with the animosity already stirred by Alexis and her legal posturings against the mayor. Can you just imagine how furious she would… Read more »

Hard to develop a story when they only cover it 1x every 3 weeks! If you are going to do a story like this then dive in (no pun) or don’t do it at all. It is very frustrsting @ GH when they write half-assed stories while other characters are seen almost daily; Sam/Jason/Liz overstayed its welcome! I would love to see this storyline front snd center or at least give It more airtime.

I applaud our GH writers for writing a story, one that doesnt get told everyday. I like how Kristina openly admits she is confused about how she feels and her younger sister is there to reason with her. I like how this story is being treated as a social issue where one could and does ask him or herself, am I gay or was it a passing faze? Often times the debate is, are we born gay or is it a lifestyle you adapt to. I dont know that answer. Some people who are gay know it VERY early on… Read more »

No way would I want to see Kristina written as bisexual—that will only send out the message to viewers that she doesn’t really know what she wants and that is unhealthy. If they make her out to be gay, that’s great. If they choose to go in another direction, I will be fine with that too but not exploring bisexuality. That one I wouldn’t buy.

I don’t see why being bisexual or not or whatever a person is has anything to do with soap drama..
It is so commonplace that nobody is shocked by it..
The younger generation has no problems with any of it, it is of their world..
Older people my see a story about it as being sensational, but really much to do about nothing in this 21st century..

there are many urgent happenings in our world to take preference over someone’s sexual preference, that even bringing upfront is totally oldfashioned lame.

The whole story line is not going to work mainly because the actress is not capable of the acting chops it requires.

The guilt trip Sonny laid on Kristina was laughable.

Do I hope Kristina is gay or straight? That she has a relationship with Professor Parker? Does it matter?

Meredith Baxter did and by the way she would be Excellent as Monica’s new galpal and I miss her on Y&R and still hoping she returns after nursing Kelly back to health.

Kristina has been offscreen for three years. Nobody really knows what she has been doing ever since she left. There is plenty of room in that long time span for the writing team to make this a beleivable twist. A lot of girls in her age range tend to go through sexual fluidity and just cause you thought you only liked boys in your teens doesn’t always mean you will feel the same when you become an adult. She could have been experimenting with her sexuality while she was away for these three years and finally felt something strong in… Read more »

Love to see where the Kristina and Parker storyline goes. These two could be another super couple of daytime, but might need to change to an older actress for Kristina. Lexi Ainsworth seems way too young for the professor. Where are the Otalia fans? Tired of only seeing the male gay storylines.

You writers are obviously not aware of this, but many of us would simply like to be able to watch a tv show and enjoy love relationships as they were naturally intended to be. Why do you think we want to see men kissing men, women kissing women. There are many people who feel that a person has the right to live as he chooses – however – that doesn’t mean that it has to continually be blast into our faces or into our homes. Come on- give me a break!

I might be in the minority but I thought two people in love was the way “love relationships were naturally intended to be.” I’m a gay man who has known he was gay since his teens so that is natural to me — Your argument that the GH gay relationships are “continually blasted into our faces” doesn’t really hold much water: Lucas and Brad are rarely on together and are basically celibate at this point and the current Kristina/Parker “story” has barely been featured until the past week. I can’t speak for other viewers but as far as I am… Read more »

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly passed away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a Fighter, and an Idealist, and an Advocate”; Nancy Lee Grahn Gives Masterful Performance In Special Episode

When you combine superb direction, writing, production, and acting in a special episode of a daytime drama, viewers can see and understand the thought and care that went into it.

This was more than on display during Thursday’s highly-anticipated ‘Alexis-Centric’ episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Alexis’ portrayer, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, on General Hospital.

In the story, symbolism was apparent and used for dramatic impact and it worked beautifully throughout, and best of all, Nancy received a script worthy of her immeasurable talents, and showed us once again why she remains one of the gold standards of our genre.  If you have not seen the episode DO NOT read any further as it contains spoilers.

It begins with an emotional Alexis looking at her mother’s watch which was still frozen from the time of her death.  While playing one of her mother’s records very loudly, she recalls Mikkos Cassadine kissing and dancing with her mom as a young Alexis (Natasha) looked on from the staircase.  When Sam asks her about it, Alexis shares that she sees the watch as sort of a representation for her own life being frozen over the last three years; which has included Alexis’ battle with booze taking over her life and her being disbarred, when being a lawyer was the way she identified herself and what gave her purpose.

Overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden, Alexis hightails it to Kevin’s office for a therapy session knowing she is going to Pentonville in the morning to serve her sentence.  She says she does not know who she is anymore.  Then, Kevin asks her how she spent her day thus far.  She flashes back to lunch with the good men in her life, Finn, Valentin, Jax and Ned.  Valentin tells Alexis she is proud of her for honing up to her mistakes.

Back at the therapy session, Alexis she was an attorney who stood for something and her life has derailed, and that she was a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate.  She knows she has to find a purpose in prison to make it through the three-year term and asks Kevin to help her find one.

Kevin wants to go back to when she was a little girl and her memories that are flooding back to her of Mikkos and her mother.  Just then, the younger version of Alexis is huddled in the corner of Kevin’s office, an image of her from the past.  Alexis tries to come to terms with her father and the choice of dangerous men and relationships that have marred her own happiness  … recalling Julian holding a knife to her throat like Mikkos did to her mother. She says he was one of the toxic men in her life, but Kevin reminds her all of the men in her life were not toxic.

Alexis starts with Ned as one who was good for her saying he was always stable, but she ruined that by recently sleeping with him and putting a wedge in his marriage to her long-time friend, Olivia.

We then flashback to earlier in the day, where Alexis ends up in an almost confrontation with Olivia.  However, Olivia tells her she misses the Alexis Davis she used to be and to get her back.

Now back with Kevin, a guilt-ridden Alexis relays she feels responsible for Neil’s death.  Kevin interjects she is not, nor what happened with Julian.  When Kevin attempts to bring up Mikkos again, Alexis rejects it and is angry that he is making her problem about daddy issues; like so many other women.  She vehemently shouts that the men in her life do not define who she is.

Then, Alexis flashes back to hurtful memories she has buried of a young Natasha witnessing Mikkos calling her mother a “greedy little bitch”.  She recalls it was on Christmas Eve and that Mikkos stopped by to give them gifts. That is when he presented her mother with the watch.  However, things took an ugly turn when he tried to leave, and she threatened to tell Helena all about her and Natasha. Next, Mikkos slapped her and that is when the watch shattered. As all this was going down, a young Natasha watched from the stairs and was horrified that she couldn’t stop her father from beating her mother and remembers how helpless she felt.

However, Alexis reveals to Kevin she thought this would be the last of Mikkos coming by, but he returned on New Year’s Eve and her mother took him back into their lives.  Alexis is beside herself that she could not protect her mother, but Kevin reassures her to remember she was just a child.

It is then we come to the crux of the story.  Alexis looks over in the corner and sees her younger self crying. She goes to her younger self and tells her nothing that happened was her fault, and that their father was damaged and cruel. She tells the young Natasha this shouldn’t have been her burden to carry alone, and that she deserves to be happy. Then in the moment of strength and coming full circle, Alexis introduces herself to the young Natasha, “I’m Alexis Davis, a fighter, an advocate, and an idealist … and I will take care of everything from her on out.”  In that moment, Alexis embraced herself, and forgave herself, so she could move on with her life.

Alexis then flashes back to earlier that night, as the Davis girls gather for a faux graduation ceremony so Alexis could see Molly in her cap and gown and they hug. Back in her session, Kevin remarks that Alexis has repeatedly defined herself as a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate, and reminds her she has three daughters who have those qualities, and that all she needs to be is Alexis Davis.

Then, we get a heart-warming montage of Alexis though the years in honor of Nancy’s 25th anniversary with GH.

As the episode concludes, it is the next morning, and Alexis enters Pentonville and enters her jail cell. There she meets her fellow inmate, who is studying law books to prep for her upcoming parole hearing. Alexis introduces herself as “Alexis Davis” and as someone who can help her.  We then go back to her mother’s watch which now begins ticking at Alexis’ home.  The show fades to black.

Kudos to Daytime Emmy winner, Phideaux Xavier for his outstanding direction, head writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and script writer, Scott Sickles for the thoughtful episode, EP Frank Valentini and his production crew for putting it all together, and the one and only Nancy Lee Grahn for a performance that will be remembered as a classic.
