GH's Constance Towers on Valentin and Helena to Liz – the line she could not say!

Constance Towers, the evil Helena Cassadine from General Hospital guest-starred in last night’s Soap Opera Mystery Theatre at the WGA with All My Children’s Jacob Young.  Thus reuniting Helena with one of her former Lucky Spencer’s! On-Air On-Soaps caught up with one of our favorite people, and asked Constance if Helena’s latest escapades has legs, and when does she think the baddest Cassadine of them all, Valentin, will make his way to the Port Charles canvas.  As many know Valentin’s debut (Actor, Matt Borlenghi) was delayed to make room for James Franco’s guest-star turn, and seems to still be  on the back-burner.

Towers, “She is back with a vengeance.  There is a little more of an arc to do it this time.  We hope the Valentin character will come in soon.  We have been serenading his entrance for quite awhile, but he hasn’t made it yet.  That character will be probably the only person that Helena is truly afraid of. ”

We then asked Constance, how on earth does she get through the scenes where she is spouting such venom at the fragile Elizabeth, Becky Herbst? Towers responded, “It’s hard. She is one of the sweetest people on this earth, and there was only one line I refused to say because she is truly pregnant in real life, and that was turn to her and say, “I hope the Gods are smiling and you will die in child birth.” And I turned and I said “Even Helena is not that poisonous.  I can’t say that,” and so I didn’t. “ And she and I laugh a lot in rehearsal. I throw things in, and sometimes I keep them in.  The other day Helena says to Elizabeth, “You have three little urchins by three different men, and you are not married to a single one of them. You are really ripe for Welfare”.  They right me in interesting ways, and the writing is terrific at GH.  They give Helena a sense of humor and they also make her vulnerable. I think a villain who is vulnerable is very interesting to watch and play.”

We can’t wait for more Helena debauchery! Stay tuned!

I can not believe TIIC would pen that, with the actress being pregnant in real life. They are truly disgusting, I’m sorry – I think that is awful and KUDOS to CT for having class enough NOT to say it.

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.

GH’s Kirsten Storms Reveals She Is Recovering From Brain Surgery

On Friday afternoon, General Hospital’s Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones) took to her Instagram Story accompanied in the car by her best friend, Emme Rylan (Ex-Lulu, GH) that she just underwent brain surgery.  In the video, Storms was in a neck brace.

In her message to her fans and friends, Kirsten shared: “I’ve not really spoken about this much, or at all, actually.  But, less than 48 hours ago, I had brain surgery, hence the neck brace.  It was on the lower portion of my brain. Emme is taking care of me until I get to my at-home nurse. It has been an interesting last couple of days.”

Kirsten went to clarify what kind of surgery it was, revealing: “What they had to drain and remove was not cancer. I want to clarify that right now before the Internet, goes crazy wild with rumors about this. I had a very large cyst that had split into two and the doctor said it was so full, the pressure was very noticeable when they opened up my skull.”

Now that the pressure is relieved from her brain, Storms will be healing and taking time off from work at GH, expressing: “I will be on the mend for the next several weeks. I will be back at work when this is over with.”

Share your well-wishes for a safe and speedy recovery to Kirsten via the comment section below.
