GH's Kirsten Storms On Exit Of Julie Berman, Jack Wagner, Maxie's Pregnancy & The Nurses' Ball!

General Hospital is getting ready to celebrate with its fans next week when the show turns an astounding 50 years old!  Access Hollywood caught up with one of the fan favorites in Port Charles, Kirsten Storms to talk all things Maxie in front of the camera and behind the scenes.

One things that is certainly difficult for Kirsten, is the departure of her GH closest pal Julie Marie Berman (Ex-Lulu), who filmed her final scenes with Storms.  Kirsten told  ‘Access’ on Julie’s exit: “I actually got to have Julie’s last scene with her, which was so emotional. We could barely look at each other. It was great. She started a few months after I started. So I really do feel like my entire General Hospital experience has been with her. I feel lost without her now, but I know we have a great actress coming in (Emme Rylan) to pick up for Lulu and we’re just going to keep going with the story lines.”

Kirsten also has gotten the opportunity to work with her on-screen bio-dad during GH 50,  soap icon, Jack Wagner as Frisco Jones.  Fans have loved Kirsten and Jack’s scenes together since his return to GH.  Kirsten related,  “I love working with Jack. I was definitely nervous when I first worked him!  My mom watched him on Melrose Place when I was growing up. But he’s amazing. Talking to him, he has had a lot of crazy life experiences, and we have been able to put some of that stuff in to our scenes with each other.  And, I love the dynamic between Kristina Wagner (Felicia) and Jack.  It’s been really cool to see them together.”

As far as keeping the secrets to the upcoming Nurses’ Ball, Storms revealed, “Our boss Frank Valentini (GH EP) strikes the fear of God in all of us! (Laughs) They have been going to a lot of lengths to change the cast names on the scripts, so it doesn’t get out with who is coming back, but we all respect the show.  So we are all doing our best to keep our lips shut about things!”

The big question though remained! Will Maxie tell Spinelli she is pregnant with his baby? Or, still give it to Dante and Lulu and pretend it’s their child she has been carrying?  Kirsten expressed, “I don’t know if we are going to get the resolution that everybody is hoping for.  I think maybe some fans may be satisfied,  and I know some people are going to be disappointed, because there are people on both sides of this situation that want Maxie to tell the truth, or don’t want her to.   I have no idea what is going on, and they have not told me.  I hope I get to keep it.”

Now below, watch Kirsten’s video interview with Access Hollywood, then let us know, if you hope Maxie tells Spinelli that the she is baby is his, and she gets to keep it? Or, do you want Dante and Lulu to raise the little bundle of joy?  And, have you enjoyed the emotional scenes between Frisco and Maxie?  Weigh-in!

Yes! Spixie should raise their own baby. Spin wants to be a father and deserves to know he is going to be one!

Jack and Kristen have had some of the best father/daughter scenes iv ever seen lately on a soap. Hope J.W. makes future visits to the show if not staying but it would be better if he could and would stay but ill settle for occasional visits which is better than nothing. I feel Maxie will at the last minute decide to keep the baby. Maybe Ellie, instead of possibly going Britch on us, will learn about the baby and tell Spinnelli which doesnt necessarily mean he’ll dump Ellie for Maxie…at least for awhile.

Maxie needs to tell Spinelli the truth, they belong together anyway. Lulu and Dante will get a child somehow.

I agree that Maxie treated Spinelli terribly. BUT she was young, fickle and didnt know who she wanted. Now she does. She has learned along the way and now is carrying hid child, the child he WANTS to have. You and I both know she will keep the baby, and when he finds out its his, Ellie will be history. She loves him but they have a fundamental difference in wanting children. This choice along wirh religion and money matters jave ruined many couples. Better they find this out now than later. We will see who is right. Maxie is… Read more »

Kirsten – I miss you as Belle. This is: currently: my favorite story-line. Jack Wagner, is impressive. His stoic, delivery.. is sexy! he’s leaving it to us… viewers… what to think about Frisco. and it’s sizzling… to imagine… well, maybe not… ie: a matter of choice… however… it’s catching to respond. you can see… the chemistry… the understood LOVE… Felicia and Frisco.. have. the underlying schematic… he’s “restless”, for adventure… and not entirely about Love.. settling down. sounds obvious… but…it’s a mother’s trial… she’s not undone by knowing LOVE w/ another. Mac.. is that good guy… like Spinelli… that I… Read more »

Love her! Maxie and Kirsten Storms are just the best. Her scenes with Jack Wagner were some of the most memorable for GH 50th Bring him back full time!

Hope Maxie & Spinelli get back together & keep the baby. Also love to see Frisco back. Hope he stays or at least comes back from time to time.

On a negative note: hate the Roger Howarth,Michael Easton, Kristen Alderson situation. I love Todd, Starr & McBain. I heard that PP was impossible to deal with. Doesn’t surprise me. I love both shows but this is a lose/lose way to resolve- or not resolve this issue. Now we have the GH actors being forced to play different characters while OLTL re-casts the roles.

I want Spinelli and Maxie back together also! Since he wants to have children in the near future and Ellie doesn’t want to have children at all!

Frisco if he wins her back, will go charging off to save the world and leave her again. Its what he does, and who he is. He loved his girls but he left them for Mac to raise and be a father to them. Its not biology that makes a parent, its the one
in the trenches, there day in and day out, being there. Frisco is the dasing, romantic, still sexy bad boy

I think Felicia should stay with Mack! Frisco can’t stay in one place for very long! He never did. Mack alway’s has Felicia’s back! He is true blue ! He adores her & Maxi, who he raised not Frisco. Felicia told Mack & Frisco that she loves them both! Who will she pick to stay with??? I think she will pick Mack!

Maxie will give up Jackal Jr. & the truth will be revealed @ the most inappropriate time after Dante & Lulu have had some quality bonding time with the new baby. That’s how soaps work. Sidebar: hope one of the 3 departed/returning actors will be the missing Q heir.

I’m really tossed up in the air about the baby that Maxie is Carrying. So we will just have to see how it turns out..I’m actually on both sides. However when Maxie had her Sonogram and Spinelli accidentally walked in She was just about to tell him and Ellie walks in (So uncool)

Yes she needs to tell Damien it’s his baby. And she should keep it!

I think Brit will grow a conscious and tell that she implanted herself with Dante and lulu’s embro. And maxie tells the truth about her baby. So donte and lulu get there baby and maxie gets to keep hers.

Nolegrad

I think Britt is having LuLu and Dabte’s baby from one of the embryos so LuLu will get a baby and Macie will keep hers.

I am so hoping that Maxie will tell Spinelli, and that they become a couple and get to raise the little girl.

I love Maxie,she should tell Spinelli,but not get back with him.She treated him like a dog,but when he met Ellie,she wanted him back. Britt should tell Dante and LULU that the baby she’s carring is their’s.I hate her,will Patrick’s wife ever return.

Dominic Zamprogna On His Return To General Hospital: “So Great To Be Back With My Family!!”

The big surprise on Monday’s General Hospital in its first episode back amid the coronavirus pandemic, featured in it none other than Dominic Zamprogna and his return to the show as Dante Falconeri.

In it, viewers see Dante still struggling from his PTSD while at a WSB facility in Geneva, Switzerland at the top of the episode.

We later see Dante writing a letter to his mother, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), that he just saves and tucks at the end of his bed, never meaning he as he says to send it, in order to keep his family and loved ones safe from him.

Zamprogna was last seen on GH back in March of 2019.  Dominic originated the role of Dante back in 2009 and had stayed with the series for 9 years before deciding to previously exit the show.  Over the last several months, Dominic has been public about wanting the opportunity to work with his GH co-stars again and how he missed them,

After today’s episode of GH aired, the series Twitter account, tweeted: “Welcome Home” to which the actor expressed: “Thank you!! So great to be back with my family!!”

This sets the stage for Dante to get well, head back to Port Charles, only to find the love of his life Lulu (Emme Rylan), involved with another man, Dustin (Mark Lawson), or who knows what else may be on the horizon.

So, what do you think will happen next for Dante? Glad Dominic is back on GH? Comment below.

Exec Prod Frank Valentini On GH’s Return with New Episodes: “There is a Bang and a Surprise and a Twist”

Monday, General Hospital will finally be airing a new episode – the first in months due to COVID-19 – which had previously shut down production of the show.  Now with safety protocols in place, GH will become the first ABC network show back on TV with original installments.

GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini spoke to ABC 7 Los Angeles’ entertainment guru George Pennacchio on the legacy soap opera’s return and picking up the story where things left off.

Valentini offered up for Monday’s episode: “The very first few seconds of the show, I think, will blow a lot of the audience’s mind because there’s a big surprise that we inserted in.”

Meanwhile, viewers know that their is a major custody case going on for Wiley/Jonah, and that Mike’s (Max Gail) battle with Alzheimer’s could wrap in the coming months if the story continues as it had before the shut down.

However, Valentini shared that fans have some very exciting things to look forward to on GH: “There is a bang and a surprise and a twist and it’s going to be a lot of fun.”

In addition, Pennacchio reports that the GH Nurses’ Ball will return sometime in August, which usually airs in May, but didn’t, because of COVID-19 this past spring.

As to how GH will handle the love scenes, the kisses, and the intimate moments between characters which are a staple of the genre during the health crisis, Frank expressed:”Physical intimacy is limited.  We’re going to leave a lot more to the imagination.”

So, what surprises do you think are in store as previewed by Valentini when GH returns with new episodes? Comment below.
