Congratulations are in order to the beautiful and talented duo of Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones) and Brandon Barash (Ex-Johnny) of General Hospital! According to a story that just broke today via PEOPLE magazine, the couple were married back in June, and Storms is pregnant with the couple’s first child, a baby girl!

Barash told PEOPLE why the decision to keep everything hush-hush until now: “We kept things quiet because of everything that can go wrong during the first trimester. Kirsten did have a rocky [time] and we were in and out of the hospital.”  The pregnancy came as a surprise to the couple because of Kirsten’s battle with endometriosis.

Barash revealed, “We talked about wanting to have kids and Kirsten was told she could try hormone therapy. It was pretty bleak as far as the probability of her being able to get pregnant … but then we got back from a trip to Amsterdam and discovered we were expecting. We calculated that we conceived the baby in Tony Geary‘s (Luke’s) guest room!”

Brandon is very excited to welcome their baby daughter into the world! “We’re having a little girl in January. It’s been the most amazing couple of months of our lives.” 

Talk about life imitating art, since Kirsten’s Port Charles alter-ego, Maxie Jones has been pregnant and giving birth on the show too!  Send your well-wishes and congrats to Brandon and Kirsten here!

Congratulations on your marriage and impending parenthood. you were very smart to keep it a secret a special time like this should be cherished and enjoyed and given Kirsten’s medical issues this was a very smart move. I wish you all the best and long happy life.

Oh my god never did I think they were married. But then I don’t follow the coupling
on that show or really any other. Just so surprise they’d be married.

All the best to a talented couple.

Kirsten did a great job today in the labor scenes. I imagine a real life pregnancy made those scenes more interesting to do. I miss Brandon. Please bring him back, GH.

“I need an outfit….” as they were heading to the hospital how Maxie is that.

her hair was a little out their… curly brown and blond ringlets…. oh well.

Awww…congrats to the happy couple and their little “Maxiccara!” Oddly enough, I always found Storms’ portrayal as pregnant to suspend belief because she remained so perky, petite and perfect (unlike Britt who moves and totally behaves like a whale of an expectant mother….) Guess the joke was on us all!!!! Just hope they don’t name the baby “Georgie!!!” LOL…..

Patrick
Patrick

LOL….

that’s so Funny…. the part about Britt.

quite frankly… I was more invested in Britt’s… than Maxie’s pregnancy… I guess… cause we “know”, and/or thought we knew the outcome with Maxie… it wasn’t going to be hers…. from the start….

Ok… lambast me about Britt’s storyline… but… I wanted her to bond with this baby… and she, as a person…(her questionable… parents…) Britt’ was discovering her self… and questioning her being…. so… it all fit in my story, that Britt… play this all out from her point of view.

and let the chips fall where they may…. her fallout, comeuppance. Britt’s involved with ‘her” baby.

Shay
Shay

As someone who never was anti-Dr. Westbourne, I am actually enjoying Britt more and more, and it’s not simply because of her priceless relationship with the “mother of all mutters”….although it certainly helps!!!! Once we were treated to the “Britch’s” backstory, I found her to be intriguing and far more interesting than when she was simply this one-dimensional villainess with no explanation for her agenda/behavior. She obviously has a very damaged psyche, and is desperate for a road to redemption. At this point, it is hard to see that just becoming a mother will accomplish this objective, because it appears that the paternity issue will not be a long-lasting mystery. Too bad, as I would love to see her baby bond and win Patrick’s heart away from “Sabrina the Teenage Stalker.” At any rate, I do hope that she will be able to wriggle out of her current legal problems, further develop her character and form some healthy relationships. Lastly, I would love to see her dubbed with a new nickname…the current one’s getting really old…speaking of, LOVED Anna D.’s disapproving reaction to that distasteful moniker during last week’s conversation with Felix. Pure class!!!!!

Patrick
Patrick

Britt.

“…She obviously has a very damaged psyche”

you said it perfectly.

how better to get involved with a story.

Kelly Thiebaud made this story… much more multi- faceted.. and multi-dimensional for Britt & the audience.

Britt’ mother… added personal intrigue… big.

Britt and Nicholas… pairing in the wings? who wouldn’t? Yikes!

props to Kelly Thiebaud again…. Jason Thompson and Tyler Christopher. Big.

mother/daughter duos are FUN, Interesting, and you cheer them on… Root…

a nice turn from the Patrick/Sabrina twist

she’s a keeper…. newbie on the rise.

Patrick
Patrick

perhaps “Maxie” should name “her” daughter… Tiara….

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GH Preview – Week of June 18, 2018

This week on General Hospital, as Carly (Laura Wright) is being drugged up with anti-psychotic meds at Ferncliff, it’s Jason (Steve Burton) to the rescue.  Carly’s bff finds a way to infiltrate the state mental institution. Meanwhile, Carly had been talking to Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), who says he will help her through her ordeal emotionally.  But is Carly really seeing Kevin, or is it just a figment of her imagination?

Elsewhere, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) seeks out her ex Julian (William deVry) as she tries to come to terms with the root cause of her issues with the men she chooses to be in her life.  Julian, who has gotten closer to Kim (Tamara Braun), now has a chance to try to help Alexis and make up for the ways in which he hurt her.  Could this be the beginning of the patching up of Julexis, or the final straw?

Sonny (Maurice Benard) has just learned that Mike (Max Gail) moved the body buried at Croton. Where did Mike take it?  How will this have future implications?

Here are more teasers for the action coming up on  GH:
