Could it be she is taking time off to promote her new show? The thought of her being ill bothers me. Doesn’t she tweet?? I don’t know how so I can’t check.

I certainly hope her anorexic is off eating a sandwich somewhere and getting acting lessons. She is hideous looking and a hideous actress.

Seems you have a slight character flaw. In light of that you have no right to judge Kirsten or anyone else for that matter.

Get better soon Kristen.Maybe we all should give the actress replacing her a break. I think she is doing a good job.Hopefully Kristen will be back soon.

I didn’t mean to bash the actress. It is just that the character of Maxie is very self absorbed, but in the Kirsten’s familiar hands, she is quirky and endearing, with a stranger behaving that way, it loses the endearing quality. I don’t think anyone but Kirsten could pull off that character – remember prior actresses did not play Maxie this way, and I know that I never cared for Maxie until Kirsten took over. It didn’t hurt that she reminds me of a younger Kristina Wagner.

I agree that not to bash the fill in girl, but Maxie is not Maxie without Kirsten. I have to wonder tho, if they are aware of how long she will be out “sick”, I tend to think “sick” is another word for rehab. If that is the case, I sent the best thoughts for Kirsten to find the help she needs and look forward to her return on GH.

Thoughts and prayers to Kirsten during this difficult time. She is missed on GH. No one can take her place as Maxie Jones. GH may as well send her character to New York or somewhere because the recast doesn’t fill her shoes. Get well soon.

Kirsten, you are so sweet and no one can play Maxie with the heart and sole that you do. But on a personal level, you are missing your family and your brother and you need to fix your friendship with Farah. Too many stresses for such a young and talented young girl. You need to release some of the stress which I’m praying will help to ease your endometriosis. God bless you and get well soon.

Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’ Acquired by Fox in the U.S.

Great news for fans of former GH star Vinessa Antoine (Ex-Jordan).  The Canadian legal drama, Diggstown, in which she stars has found an American broadcasting home via news today that Fox has acquired the series.

Fox has picked up twelve episodes for seasons one and two of the drama.

In Diggstown, Antoine stars as Marcie Diggs, a star corporate lawyer who reconsiders her priorities and moves to work in a legal-aid office after her beloved aunt takes her own life following the pressures of a malicious prosecution.

 

The series explores issues of social injustice among other topical matters and universal themes. The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics, and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice. They work directly in the community to find justice for their varied clients. Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.

Deadline broke the news of the acquisition, which will help the network during the Covid-19 pandemic and production shutdowns, to have programming ready to go while other shows continue to get up and running.

No word yet on when Fox might air Diggstown in its primetime line-up.

So, excited to see Vinessa in the legal drama when the show airs on Fox? Comment below.

When Martin Met Jackie (AKA All My Children’s Tad and Jenny) on General Hospital

If you caught Monday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC daytime drama snuck in a ‘wink-wink nudge-nudge’ to viewers of the once dominant ABC daytime soap opera line-up.

Since Kim Delaney was announced as coming to GH to take on the role of ace investigative journalist, Jackie Templeton, longtime All My Children viewers noted that she at some point could be reunited with her former All My Children TV brother, Michael E. Knight, because they are both now in Port Charles.

Courtesy/ABC

The one time Tad and Jenny Gardner of Pine Valley got re-acquainted on yesterday’s episode when Martin interrupted a conversation between Jackie and her son, Chase (Josh Swickard).  When he did, Jackie looks at Martin and says, “Do I know you?”   She looks as though she is trying to place exactly where she knows that face from, and from there the two eventually share their first one-on-one scenes as their new soap alter-egos.

In the moment, Martin wants Jackie to investigate what happened to his mother, Florence, and reveals to Jackie that his bio-brother is Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober), which perks up Jackie to probably do some digging.

For many, it was great to see Michael and Kim together again, and here’s hoping GH can capitalize on it in future scenes.

So did you enjoy the nod to All My Children history on yesterday’s GH between Jackie and Martin aka Jenny and Tad? Comment below.

General Hospital to Incorporate In-Story ‘GMA3: What You Need to Know’ Jackie Templeton & Sasha Gilmore Interview

In a crossover of sorts, on the upcoming, Wednesday, January 27 episode of General Hospital, the daytime drama series will bring the characters of Jackie Templeton (Kim Delaney) and Sasha Gilmore (Sofia Mattsson) to its true lead-in, GMA3: What You Need to Know, but in a fictitious way for a revealing and explosive interview.

The scene is set in the Metro Court in Port Charles, and Jackie, the ace reporter and journalist has some tough questions for Sasha during their sit-down interview.  The in-story tie-in helps promote both shows in the ABC afternoon line-up.

Soap Opera Digest, who first brought the news of the mash-up in their latest issue, revealed that the moment is “being played as a remote segment for the ABC news and lifestyle program.”

However, there will be no one from GMA3 appearing on the Wednesday episode.

So what do you think will happen during the Jackie/Sasha sit-down? Comment below.
