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.

With a name like “IHateSoaps” I wonder why you are even looking at soap blogs!
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.

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And … make sure to wish Nancy a ‘happy 25th’ via the comment section below.

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.
