Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) took to her twitter account last night to let her thoughts be known on the dismissal of her on-screen daughter, Lexi Ainsworth (Kristina) from General Hospital!

Nancy: “It is no secret how much I love Lexi, and how talented I think she is. It will also come as no surprise that I am sad about her leaving… and yes, tears were shed.

Very often things out of our control turn out to be the most perfect orchestration of circumstances that lead to even better experiences, that shape our lives in profound ways. As much as I will miss Lexi, I believe this will end up being a blessing for her. At 19, there are endless acting opportunities, and now she is free to pursue them. My TV baby is a beautiful, classy young woman with a fantastically, supportive family, and a bright, bright future. I’m so excited for her.”

As we previously stated, we wish the best to Lexi on all her future endeavors and can’t wait to see what the entertainment world holds next for her!

General hospital is crazy for letting Lexi go. Ethan and Kristina would have been a sweet love story. I wish Lexi all the best! It won’t take long for someone to snatch her up! Thanks for the article. 🙂

I totally agree! After falling in love with Kristina and Ethan via YouTube clips I was ready to start watching GH again (after almost 20 years) to see these two in a sweet love story. Now I know not to bother because it won’t be the same chemistry with a recasted Kristina. There is no Kristina without Lexi and I don’t see a point in watching a show that is clearly just phoning it in.

GH really? She’s 19 but looks younger. It’s a disadvantage right now on GH, but it will turn out good for her in the long run. She can be cast younger but work full hours now and hell, when she’s in her 30’s look 20’s , 40’s, look 30!

So glad she’s gone, her annoying acting was fast forwarded as soon as I saw her face. Her pairing with Ethan was horrible and silly, why would he be attracted to someone like that after being with the gorgeous Maya. The writers should give Maxi & Ethan a try, they’re both crazy and unpredictable, what great chemistry these two would create.

Lexi will missed greatly. She was acting the way TPTB asked and wrote the character Kristina.

I’m disappointed to see someone knocking Lexi on her looks — she is beautiful. Maya was so boring — I’d rather watch paint dry then watch her.

Lexi will go far and Mayannie will be flipping burgers.

Sorry to have disappointed you, no not really, Lexi maybe beautiful to you, but to me she looks like a troll. Yeah I’m sure she will go as far as her forehead will take her.

Are you saying that the actress that plays Maya can only flip hamburgers in her future and White Lexi will be this big star? Could those feeling be because the actress that plays Maya is Black? How can you tell what her future will be? Maybe because you think the actor that plays Ethan should be paired with a White woman and not a Black one. The character of Ethan should be paired with a woman and not someone who looks like they are 15yrs old as Lexi’s looked with him. As for someone flipping burger, is that what you… Read more »

Emily, so sorry to disappoint you on your prediction for the character that played Mya (that she would be flipping burgers) but she is currently cast on Charlie’s Angels as o

The powers that be had plenty of opportunities to write Kristina as maturing but they were lazy!

Both Lexi and Annie are beautiful actresses and neither will be flipping burgers as far as I am concerned.

Jack – I never said Annie (Maya) wasn’t attractive. I just stated that the Maya character was boring to me. Since the writers wrote her off the canvas I thought the character Kristina should have been written as maturing into a young woman rather than chasing Ethan.

Waltina – Race has absolutely nothing to do with my opinion. I don’t think Annie or Lexi will be flipping burgers at any point in their future. The character Maya was written off and now the character Kristina should be written off as well.

Emily- I never said that you did, I replied to your statement regarding Lexi looks, you think she’s beautiful, I don’t, it’s not a big deal, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

miss C – I’m not disappointed at all. Maya or Mya as you incorrectly stated, whose real name is Annie is indeed on Charlie’s Angels. From what I hear the show is not doing well in the ratings. I think she should go back to GH and be with Ethan since he does need a real woman (black or white) and the writers sure know how to write for women, right? Carly — self-absorbed, Liz — needy, Robin — overbearring, etc.

Just an FYI…Charlie’s Angels has been cancelled. Annie are you okay? Are you okay Annie? Welcome back to GH Maya!!!

I hope Maya will not be back, I found her character supremely boring and I felt like she & Ethan were forced on us. Personally I feel Nathan (Ethan) & Lexi (Kristina) have WAY more chemistry and I am sadden that she is leaving. I think this is a bad decision on GH’s part as Lexi/Kristina is popular with alot of fans and on the heels of the Megan Ward recast since I’m hearing they are planning to bring Krissy back aged, they are alienating more fans at a time so precarious for soaps. In any case I wish Lexi… Read more »

This was a huge mistake and loss for General Hospital! Lexi Ainsworth is Kristina and no one will be able to replace her. The ratings for the show will continue to go down if they do not bring this talented emmy worthy actress back to the canvas. She has great chemistry with every actor and actress on the show. Her and Nathan were the most exciting story on the show in my opinion and many others opinions. Also the Davis girls was so cute and fun to watch but without Lexi is just dosent work. Lexi as kristina was so… Read more »

They are crazy for letting Lexi go! She is Kristina Davis, there is no replacing her, she made the role Kristina hers and hers only!

They need to own up to their mistake and rehire her!!

I love Lexi also. But I think it’s time to replace her before she has a REAL RELATIONSHIP.It seems kind of greepy for someone Ethans age to be interested in someone so young. Not a day over 16. The girl that is going to replace her, will be perfect for the part. I wish LEXI very luck. I don’t think she will need it. She is very talented.

Lexi is almost 19 and so is the character Kristina. Ethan is supposed to be 24 or 25 on the show; however, Nathan is 23 in real life.

ETHINA IS LOVE!!! The real Ethina is Lexi and Nathan.

I’m referring to Kristina and Ethan!! It doesn’t matter if he’s 19 or 23 the chemistry between them is non exsistant. In real life Nathan would not look twice at that girl.

I know who you were referring to and I disagree a million times over.

The chemistry is absolutely there and it’s a shame that you don’t see it.

Why did you switch to Nathan when you were referring to Ethan? Sounds like you need to get your story straight.

LOL!, I agree with the Sheila/Steve comments. It’s so funny that some people think just because they believe that two people have chemistry we all should believe it. Lexi/Kristina & Nathan/Ethan have as much chemistry as a skunk and a porcupine.

That’s pretty funny; HOWEVER, Nathan’s real-life girlfriend Maria Aceves bears a STRIKING resemblence to Lexi Ainsworth.

HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM…………………………

I predict that Nathan and Lexi will be together in a couple of years.

YEAH BABY!!!! NEXI IS LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope Maya comes back, she’s Sexy, Hot & Gorgeous!!!! Mayan have Great Chemistry!!! Watching Kristina trying to force a relationship with Ethan was pretty pathetic and boring, I fast forwarded all their scenes together because she’s so annoying.

Daytime Emmys To Remain Virtual For Upcoming 2021 Ceremony

With an uncertain situation of when live events can get back to normal, or as they have been in the past prior to the coronavirus pandemic, The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced today that it plans on keeping next year’s Daytime Emmys award show virtual, to allow for the 2022 awards cycle to stay on track.

In fact, all of NATAS’s award ceremonies including: the News and Documentary Emmys, Technology & Engineering Emmys and the Sports Emmys will also remain virtual next year.

The Daytime Emmys became the first major award show to air a virtual presentation that others followed back in late June of this year and aired on CBS.

In a statement, NATAS chairman and CEO Adam Sharp expressed on the organization’s decision:“The current timetables articulated by manufacturers project mass availability of vaccinations for the entire U.S. population by mid-summer 2021, potentially permitting a return to more traditional in-person ceremonies later in the fall. However, we have determined that delaying our 2021 events to possibly allow for a compressed calendar of in-person Emmy ceremonies late in the year would result in unacceptable delays to our awards cycle for 2022. Instead, we have decided to remain “virtual” in the format of our ceremonies for 2021 while relying on a substantially pre-COVID awards calendar. In so doing, we believe we will be best-positioned to return to a full, on-time, traditional schedule of in-person ceremonies in 2022.

The dates currently under consideration for the 48th annual Daytime Emmys which would be via two or three nights of presentations are: a combination of dates from Friday, June 25, Saturday, July 17 and/or Sunday, July 18.

For those entering the competition, the entry deadline is February, 17, 2021 with  the nominations not to come till May or June.

So, what do you think about the Daytime Emmys going virtual again for 2021? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Port Charles Learns a Bomb Caused the Explosion as Lives are Forever Changed

This week’s General Hospital has reminded us all of why we love daytime drama and why GH possesses some of the finest performers in the genre.

Wednesday’s episode featured several emotionally-charged and gut-wrenching moments as loved ones find out the fate of several people in crisis, or have to deliver terrible news in the wake of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib, which already had taken the lives of Dev (Ashton Arbab) and Dustin (Mark Lawson).

Courtesy/ABC

As we begin, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) has a passed-out Lulu (Emme Rylan) in his arms and brings her to Portia (Brook Kerr), who sends her for tests.  And in true soap opera fashion, just as Lulu was presumably going to tell Dane she still loved him and wanted him back (following Dustin’s death) … he never heard what she had to say.

 

Laura (Genie Francis) fills in Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) that Dev did not make it, and then Liz decides to tell her son, Cameron (William Lipton) the heartbreaking news while he is recovering from his injuries.  When she does, Cam is overcome and devastated as his mother holds him in her arms.  Meanwhile, Carly (Laura Wright) is filling-in Trina (Sydney Mikayla) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) about Dev’s untimely death.

Later, with Laura present, Portia tells Lulu’s loved ones that she has a cerebral contusion, and that there is a a traumatic brain injury which has caused swelling on the brain.  Laura and Dante look on devastated.  Portia then says they have already rushed Lulu to urgent surgery.

Julian (William deVry) is with Ava (Maura West) at Wyndemere.  She is attempting to hide him there, while he figures out his next step after planting the bomb.  However, Jason (Steve Burton) shows up looking for Julian now that Sonny found out that a bomb caused the explosion that ravaged the Floating Rib.  From that point on calls are made to ensure Sonny’s family is protected as a mob war is about to go down. Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jason believe all roads lead back to Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober).

Jason leaves Wyndemere before spotting Julian; leaving a distraught Ava to come down hard on her brother … he has two choices…  leave Port Charles, which she will help him do, or stay, and if he stays, she will not help him or be a part of his life.  While they are discussing his next move, they learn Lulu is now in critical condition from the bomb.  Ava tells Julian in no uncertain terms that everything he has done has come with a cost.  Jason shows up at the Corinthos home where Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is not happy about any of this, finds out along with Carl,y that Jason believes he was the target at the Floating Rib.

As Liz is struggling to hold it together with Franco (Roger Howath) having brain surgery, she speaks with Scott (Kin Shriner), who did not know of his son’s tumor.  She shares with Franco’s dad that Franco is worried he will wake up a very different person.  Liz is told Franco is out of surgery, and is in tears over his hospital bed.  She prays he will be alright and Franco wakes up!

Portia tells Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Laura, and Dante that Lulu is out of surgery but in a coma, which Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) points out is normal in these situations. Dante goes to sit by Lulu’s bedside and begs her to wake up.

Courtesy/ABC

Then, in devastating news for Laura, Lucas (Matt Trudeau) gives her the real 411 on Lulu.  He tells Laura that Lulu’s brain started swelling the minute she hit her head at the Floating Rib, and that her injury got worse the longer she was not checked out.  Laura achingly realizes Lulu was so worried about Dustin that she never was immediately checked out for head trauma.  Lucas lets Laura know that Lulu’s recovery could take a very long time, if she recovers at all.

Heart-tugging performances throughout the stellar episode were given by: Dominic Zamprogna, Genie Francis, William Lipton, Rebecca Herbst, and Maura West in very intense and dramatic scenes.

So, what have you thought of this week’s episodes of GH? The fate of Lulu? The performances from yesterday’s airshow? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
