UPDATED: This afternoon ABC released this official statement welcoming Hayley Erin to the cast as the new Kiki Jerome, “As many of you know, Kristen Alderson has decided to leave General Hospital and start a new professional journey. As a member of our ABC family since she was six years old, we will miss Kristen and wish her only the best in her new ventures. As a result, the role of Kiki Jerome will be recast with Hayley Erin.  Hayley will start appearing as Kiki in late February. Please join us in welcoming Hayley to our cast.”

In addition, Kristen Alderson in a very classy move tweeted “Congrats @HayleyErin !!!”  Below is the original story we posted from this morning when the story first broke.

News this morning from Daytime Confidential’s Jamey Giddens has that General Hospital has found their Kiki Jerome  in actress Hayley Erin!  The role had been vacated since Daytime Emmy winner Kristen Alderson elected to not renew her contract, and depart the series, and the daytime landscape for now.

Soap fans recognize Hayley from The Young and the Restless where she played Abby (daughter of Victor and Ashley) from 2008-2010, before being replaced by Emme Rylan, who she will now also work with over at General Hospital, since Emme plays Lulu Spencer Falconeri in Port Charles!

What do you think of the choice of Hayley Erin as the new Kiki? Share your thoughts below!

wow! that sure didn’t take long………………….

She doesn’t have big shoes to fill. It’s almost like creating a whole new character since Kristen Alderson was so terrifyingly bad as “KiKi.”

Many of us like Kristen and have watched her on OLTL since she was six years old. This new actress and the direction they take the character might be great and I’m open to that…but Kristen and her warm, friendly, earthy portrayal will be missed by many of us who enjoyed seeing her in Port Charles.

I like Kristen and will miss seeing her everyday. She will be missed. Since the role was created for Kristen I wish they had just written KiKi off of the show.

LEO! Why are you trashing actors again?

Dan you can’t trash an actor who was thrown into a bad situation with the network. The character did not catch on because RH is still on the canvas as Franco and it just didn’t mesh to have Kirsten hanging on no matter who you called her character. The recast should have been done with the characters becoming other people..most assuredly in this case. They have more for the character to do and it just wasn’t working having Starr as a pivotal character other than Starr. She needed to be released and the character needs to move forward. All for it.

Oh, come on, Leo; that’s a bit of an exaggeration, don’t you think? She didn’t charm me as Kiki the way she had as Starr, but “terrifyingly bad”? I didn’t see that. Sometimes characters just don’t work, despite the best efforts of all concerned; I’d put Kiki in that category. I’m sure the new actress is happy to get the work, and I wish her the best of luck (I think she will need it, if Kiki continues to be such a dud).

Niki

Wow…not sure what show You’ve been watching…but Kristen has ALWAYS been a Great Actress…first as Star Manning OLTL….and then as Kiki….it was strange at first that they brought her to GH…hook her up with Michael…as Starr Manning…then back shortly as Kiki…and hooked up with Morgan…then back to Michael…but since she has been Great on GH…and will be missed

Mary

I absolutely LOVE Kristen playing the role as KiKi. She’s my favorite actress. I’ve known her from One Life To Live. And she actually had very big shoes to fill. Haley just is not made for the roll. She’s nothing like Kristen….. I wish you luck Kristen! But you will be dearly missed by many!!! GH just isn’t the same….

AMB
AMB

Sorry, but I have watched GH for a long time. Loved Kristen but do not like Haley. No hard feelings, GH is a top notch soap with incredible top actors and actresses in this field.

Doey Bird
Doey Bird

I don’t see her fitting in the role. First of all, Haley totally reminds me of Portia de Rossi in Ali Mc Beal. Secondly, she’s too old to play the Kiki character. and she just doesn’t have any chemistry with anyone else, especially Morgan and/or Michael. Sorry, she just doesn’t do it for me.

Lou Piikes
Lou Piikes

Hooray!!! Kiki is getting a new face. I hope this means she is getting a personality makeover as well.

su0000
su0000

I hope!!!
she will be using her given name- Lauren Katherine Jerome
… using the name Lauren..

the name Kiki is what helped killed the character..
she needs a grownup name, one that doesn’t sound like a stripper, to give her some class.. ”Lauren”

Laurie
Laurie

Well wonder why they didn’t start calling her Lauren on the show w/KA if that’s what helped kill the character. They could’ve written this character so much better. I hope they realize that and change it.
I thought the soaps were about to do major cuts?
Well good luck KA. She always did a nice job at OLTL. Too bad for the PP mess & she wasn’t able to stay Starr on GH. But congratulations to Hayley! She’s a very pretty young lady. She looks a little young to be playing someone who’s been married to Morgan, divorced, shacked up w/Michael and now maybe shacked up w/Morgan and raising her sister, her mom’s infant baby as Avery’s mommy and daddy are both in prison for murder-different ones each! LOL. But welcome aboard the crazy train young lady!
(On a bizarre note, GH now has 2 former Y&R Abby’s. This young lady and Emme Rylan (Lulu) What are the odds?)

Timmm
Timmm

She is very pretty. I vaguely remember her on Y&R. I hope she can act and I hope they give her a new personality, a new love interest, and drop that god awful name, KIKI!

Chrystie Delancey
Chrystie Delancey

Agreed on all counts, though I remember her better when she did an episode of KING OF QUEENS called “Mama Cast.” She played a young girl who was hired to act as part of a family to sell model homes. Carrie (Leah Remini) played the “mom.”

Allie
Allie

Exactly the name needs to go “Kiki” ugh! I hope the role becomes more interesting. If we are Changing actresses get rid of Ava’s mom ! Yikes?

Timmm
Timmm

Too late! They should have called the new girl Kathrine, Kate or Kathy. Dumb! Ava’s mom is horrible BUT she was a well known soap star from Ryan’s Hope? I dont get her.

RichCD
RichCD

Really surprised they kept this character, given how bloated the cast seems.

Harry
Harry

Agreed. I understand why they had to hastily create Kiki. (stupid, stupid name–eve worse than Mimi and Gigi). But with the adorable, unique and talented KA out, why keep this character around at all? Kiki is not really needed.
Today’s GH wasn’t bad, but there were so many characters that it was hard to follow and therefore, I found myself losing interested.
And why oh why when all 100 of the storylines are approaching their climatic peaks, do they trot out Heather? I could see if it was a slow news day in Port Charles.

su0000
su0000

Hi dear Harry!
I have absolutely no problem keeping up/following along lol
I want to help you keep up..
I suggest you purchase and take Gingko Biloba 🙂

GH rocks!!!

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

Oh I think Heather is going to be causing some real havoc for Nina now that she knows Franco likes her. She hates her son so Nina is now a pawn to be used against her son. Lol, Nina wouldn’t get any mama love from Heather even if Franco was in Heathers good graces. If she loves her son no one’s good enough and has to be eliminated. If she hates her son than why let him be happy…I was glad to see Nina back. I’ve grown to like her.

Shay
Shay

So true, Harry. If this less than scintillating character were not integral enough to pull out all the stops to keep Alderson on board, then why even bother with a recast? A housecleaning of GH’s considerable deadweight is definitely in order—I’m STILL waiting for Sappy to go bye-bye—-so this latest “addition” is indeed puzzling. You are also correct about the use of too many characters in today’s episode….it was quite the mishmash. I could understand the dual prison scenes, and even the way too drawn-out Fluke drama, but could have definitely done without the return of Nina….she has NOT been missed by this poster!!! Me thinks that her new friendship with Heather—which was totally expected at some point since all roads that lead to a nuthouse end with the BLT Queen’s reappearance—is being utilized to make MS seem more tolerable, human and sympathetic….in comparison to that off-the-wall whack-a-doo, Webber, that is. (It certainly won’t do the trick for me…..I just want the insufferable CrayClay gone for good….the sooner the better! And it would be fitting for her “Mommy Dearest” to be the one to accomplish that feat….I do so love Donna Mills as Madeline!)

CeeCee
CeeCee

What’s wrong with Mimi and Gigi? LOL. I bet you make fun of my nickname in private, don’t you, Harry? You can blame my parents for that. I had nothing to do with it.
But, Harry, ….”Don’t Go Breaking My Heart”. (kiki Dee and Elton John) LOL.

Jeremy

Things just got interesting! I didn’t see this coming. Personally, I feel the character of Kiki was stuck in the mud since she showed up in Port Charles, and that the role didn’t warrant being recasted. However, I’m open to a new Kiki and, welcome Hayley. I sure hope the writers use Kiki in effective and active ways…and give her a decent storyline of her own.

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

I wouldn’t be surprised if they put Morgan and Kiki back together. Wondering also if they’re going to keep her as the good, earnest Kiki…or revert her back to her manipulative beginnings….

3barbee
3barbee

I still laugh about the fact that Kiki is Star, and Franco is her dad, Todd. They changed their identities in about a week. ….and Nina is Phyllis. ….Too funny.

Monica
Monica

I totally agree! I will always see Kristen as my beloved Starr from OLTL. The writers of GH clusterf#%@`d her character as well as ToddFranco’s from the beginning. It’s a shame bc I loved their original characters. Although Todd is talented and making that role work, unfortunately, for KA, KiKi’s character didn’t revive.

Now, it is convoluted and it has never set right with me how the same ppl in the same series changed names and dynamics with a little hair dye! Lol! As far as the new KiKi, I’m not feeling the replacement at all! I am sure she is a fine actor, but she is no KA! Get rid of the character, the fork has gone thru the meat, it’s done. Please move on without yet another unnneeded role.

Jeremy
Jeremy

I really hope that Kristen Alderson (ex-Kiki) will have a final scene with Roger Howarth (Franco), in the way where Jonathan Jackson (Lucky), and Tyler Christopher (Nicholas) did when Jonathan last left GH.

Obviously, Kristen has fabulous screen chemistry with Roger, and it would be so nice to see them share a final scene, with a bit of Starr and Todd somehow orchestrated into the scene. That would be a nice touch, and a nice sendoff to the loyal OLTL fans, where Kiki and Franco…could say Todd and Starr in a clever way or, do or say something that fans remember from their father/daughter days on One Life to Live. I hope we see this reunion as Kristen departs in February.

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

That’s a nice thought, Jeremy. They really do have great chemistry and he was her “father” from the start. Bittersweet…

Chrystie Delancey

These “loyal OLTL” fans have gotten MORE than their fair share than many other “loyal” fans of canceled soaps. OLTL fans (I was one of them), got to see a few of their beloved characters live to see another day. Not only that, but they also got a chance to see their show try to make it online. So forgive me if I sound insincere, but I am tired of hearing about the “loyal OLTL” fans. It was ad nauseam back when OLTL and AMC were canceled and then they were put on life support for a little longer.

By my recollection, “loyal OLTL fans” got a whole lot more than the “loyal” fans of:

GUIDING LIGHT
AS THE WORLD TURNS
LOVING/THE CITY
SANTA BARBARA
SEARCH FOR TOMORROW
RYAN’S HOPE
PASSIONS
SUNSET BEACH
ANOTHER WORLD

I am not including PORT CHARLES or ALL MY CHILDREN because they kind of got the same treatment as the “loyal OLTL fans” with their characters and/or show getting another life online, with PORT CHARLES being a spinoff of GENERAL HOSPITAL.

If having some touching farewell scene between Kiki and Franco means that much to you than I suggest you create a Fantasy Soap league or something. Just let Kristen Alderson finish her scenes and then the next day they say “the role of Kiki Jerome is now being played by …” and call it a day.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

ill wait and see her performance and what direction the writers take the character before i make an opinion on her but please call her Lauren…lol

Jeremy
Jeremy

Definitely, jimh, good call. I don’t know Hayley’s work, as I’ve never watched CBS soaps. With that said, I’m hope she will do something unique to make Kiki or Lauren, more appealing and relatable. First and foremost, the writers have to make that happen. I just remembered when Kristen originated the role, and there was this commercial where she said, “My friends call me Kiki”… maybe her (Hayley Erin) new friends will call her Lauren as you and others hope for, too. “Kiki” will need a job, and if Kate were around she’d insist that she go by Lauren. Maybe this is in the works, where Kiki will mature and want to be taken seriously and use Lauren instead.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Lauren is such a beautiful name…why name a character that and not use it…i might have tolerated the name Kiki had the character been ten years old?

Jeremy
Jeremy

Maybe… the character is growing into her own and, will prefer to be called, Lauren. We shall see when Hayley assumes the role and, the character’s journey continues.

I hate it when soaps, especially GH makes changes in their cast. I realize ppl want to move on with their lives but it takes so long to get use to new faces. Like Jason, I really would love to see Steve Burton return to GH. Don’t like the new one or that anyone knows who he is yet. The plot line is being dragged on too long just like with Luke. I am a dedicated fan and will always keep watching, even though I have to deal with the changes!!! Maurice Bernard, I’m soooo happy you decided to stay, but not sure how they are going to get Sonny out of jail, lol. You’re pretty hot, your wife is a lucky woman!!!

Chrystie Delancey
Chrystie Delancey

I understand what you are saying, but it shows just about anyone is replaceable. But also, it shows how horrible or insecure the writers/producers are when they have to keep recasting a role.

Look at it another way. The whole entertainment industry are cowards because they keep “rebooting” movies and TV shows. Do we really need another ODD COUPLE? They are too afraid to come up with something new. It is very rare when they do take a chance and come up with something new.

As for TV shows, if you do not cut it within the first maybe TWO episodes, you are canceled. The ratings system needs to change. There needs to be an overhaul on all of it. Thank goodness for good, scripted cable dramas in a world of cheap so-called “reality” shows.

And I can’t agree with you more on Maurice Benard. A phenomenal actor but how are they going to get Sonny out of this one? Must be it was someone wearing a “Sonny” mask or AJ faked his death … again. In any event, I am sure it will be another LAME, recycled plot point that explains it all away.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Key word, RECYCLED.
I so agree with you Chrystie. Trying to revive old TV shows usually fails. HAWAII 5-0 is the only one that piques my interest….my grandfather says so…LOL.
I like your descriptive vocals on the mourning of past soaps…humorous, quaint and to the point….albeit, I do miss OLTL. Sorry, the repetition must really be grating on your nerves.LOL.
I was going to make another not-so-pretty comment about our Sonny. But I am going to prove to myself that I have some restraint. So, I will desist.
I love your candid views, Chrystie!

Monica

Christy Boyle…YES and well put. My sentiments, exactly! Keep it movin but leave the actors be..

kiki was a boring character no need to recast

Pen

That is YOUR perception, and you do not speak for everyone. Nor does anyone but the writers know what story they have planned. There are many viewers who like and are interested in the character of Kiki Jerome; just because you aren’t doesn’t negate that. Your rudeness exposes your narrow-minded scope.

gloria

I agree Pen. I have always loved the character of Kiki, even the name is cute! I don’t & haven’t ever understood the negativity towards this character! She is so kind & level headed, I love the way she handles Ava & she is sweet with the new baby. She is also related to Julian, Lucas, Sam & Danny & a great daughter to Silas. I hope they will develop her family relationships. I am so glad they are recasting but I will certainly miss Kristen & I hope they keep the name Kiki! Lauren is an old name now, reminds me of Lauren on Y&R.

Linda

I enjoyed Alderson as Starr on OLTL. However, Kiki is just a minor character on GH. I think Alderson is a good actress. Anybody who disagrees should watch the OLTL videos from the mid-90’s until OLTL was cancelled.

Robert

I loved her as Abby, can’t wait to see her work her magic as KiKi.

Iakovos

Maybe a cast change will allow for a changes in the character, too. I had high hopes for Kiki but it seems she is superfluous in Port Charles. all the dubious parentage and shenanigans by those in their 40s makes any bad girl Kiki seem annoying at best. I guess we shall see!

Dee

refreshing!

su0000
su0000

Yes! refreshing!!
One thing about soaps-
actors come and go, often..
I like new faces, new personalities, and seeing them preform..
I have a good feeling that Jamey Giddens will be a new and different Kiki and hopefully the horrible name of Kiki will be dropped and she will be noted by Lauren Katherine Jerome using the name Lauren..
there is much in a name that gives a personality and her being Lauren would greatly help the character, for sure..

((Kiki sounds like a street girl or stripper)

KM

I’m not a Kristen Alderson fan but I’m going to defend her here. The character was either working or not working. The problem is in the writing. Recasting the role isn’t the answer.

KA handled her exit with a lot of grace and class. I’ll always think highly of her for that.

Cartini on the other hand look like total jerks.

I feel a little sorry for the actress taking over the role. The character was conceived and poorly written. Only a matter of time before she meets the same fate as Kristen Alderson and other RC creations like Britt, Felix and (coming soon obviously) Sabrina.

Jimmy
Jimmy

I couldn’t stand her on Y&R, she was so whinny and annoying, I MUCH preferred Emme Rylan in the role. And I honestly don’t see the need to recast Kiki. She isn’t a central character, she doesn’t have much in the way of story, and the cast is already bloated enough as it is. I don’t see the purpose for the recast, and quite honestly, I feel like they could have found someone much better to play the role.

Jenn
Jenn

I hope a recast means a new direction for the character.

davidevansmith
davidevansmith

Would definitely have preferred Kelley Missal taking the role, and I think the PR on that move would have been received better, as Missal was another talented OLTL alum who most viewers enjoyed (from what I’ve read). It would also keep the spirit of the casting alive since Kiki was pulled out of the bag to salvage an OLTL actress on our screens.

Whatever. I barely remember Hayley Erin, she seemed rather green on Y&R and I only remember a handful of scenes… hard to believe she lasted 2 years on Y&R. Hopefully she brings some fire. Lots of powerhouses around the GH set. Particularly Maura West.

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

I love Kelly Missal but I’m not sure she would have relocated to CA. I believe she’s still in college in NY.

davidevansmith

Oh snap! I didn’t even think about that. You’re right. But I think she should just figure it out and commute. LOL. I’m extremely selfish and stubborn. Who needs a college education anyway?

Rebecca1

Lol…maybe she could do both and transfer to a college out west. She really is insanely good.

I am going to miss Kristen Alderson as Kiki. I hope Kristen is the new Hope Logan on The Bold and The Beautiful, that’s the big rumor out there now.

Nope, she’s categorically stated this is not true.

Chrystie Delancey

Maybe so, but I think we have ALL heard that line before (Billy, cough cough, Miller to GH); (Steve, cough cough, Burton to Y&R); (Michelle, cough cough Stafford to GH) and on and on.

Victoria

I lived her on Y&R and would love to see her back in the role of Abby. Emme Rylan just isn’t working for me.

Jimmy
Jimmy

Emme Rylan is no longer Abby on Y&R, she plays Lulu on GH now. The actress who currently plays Abby is Melissa Ordway. And even if Hayley Erin wasn’t joining GH, there’s no way Y&R would bring her back because they’d have to re-SORAS Abby and make her younger for Erin to play the role again.

dolores

will miss Kristen, have watched her grow thru One Life to Live and to GH – the script writing for the character was not as strong as it could, and should, have been…I thought she played the part well transferring from a tough girl to one with feelings…..hopefully, since they are taking the time to re-cast, they take the time to give the character strength in dialog and relationships…Kristen did a great job with poor material….good luck to both actors on their new paths….

Melissa
Melissa

This recast is completely worthless. Kiki is NOT needed on this show. She’s been a horribly ill-conceived character that has brought absolutely nothing to the table. A complete waste of skin.

su0000

Kiki/Lauren is needed..
She is the daughter of Ava and Silas and entwined with the Corinthos brothers..
With new Kiki we have no idea as to what direction the character will go..
I’m looking forward to what is planned for the new kiki/hopefully Lauren ..

Pen

Let me know when you’re in the writers room to make these decisions, and I’ll stop laughing.

jaybird369

Melissa…y-e-s…THANK YOU!!!!! I don’t even know why GH even bothered to recast the role of Kiki at all. The current GH cast is already crowded and bloated enough already!!!!! POINTLESS RE-CASTING PERIOD!!!!!

Jeremy
Jeremy

Yes, Melissa and jaybird369, I’m in total agreement with you both.
The recasting of Kiki is pointless, the cast is totally too heavy. It’s time for “make sense” cuts, not additions. The show could be so much tighter, and for me, I feel that the show…is all over the place.

johnny

Wow great casting Gh. I remember Hayley Erin from The Young and The Restless as Abby Newman. She is 20 years old and beautiful too. She will be terrific as the new Kiki Jerome. She is a wonderful actress, I wish her the best of luck. I am a big Kristen Alderson fan, and I will miss her very much as Kiki.

Mary SF
Mary SF

Well I’m surprised they recast this soon, usually soaps like to give some time to go by before recasting, unless the character is smack dab in front burner story, which at the moment Kiki wasn’t. I honestly thought they will have her leave town with the baby in order to keep the baby safe from Fluke, so I guess this means they must have plans for the character— it is risky recasting so soon, so we will have to wait and see how it works. But like others I wish Kiki would use her real name of Lauren– it is such a pretty name, where Kiki sounds like the name of a tropical drink

mike
mike

never liked her on Y&R but that could be because she was good at playing a spoiled brat

CeeCee

I will miss Kristen with a bleeding hear….I really and truly will. When OLTL was so “rudely removed” from my TV screen, it felt so strange ….I know it’s corny, but, It is what it is. I missed everyone from that show.
Then, here were three of those spectacular performes on GH, which was the main reason I started watching.
However, life and characters go on…LOL. So, if there had to be a recast, TPTB could not have made a better choice. I remember Hayley well as Abby Carlton/Newman. She is so beautiful and can act. ….a far cry from the present Abby.

Obviously, Kiki’s story is yet to be told. I am still hoping that she is Nina’s ‘lost’ baby. Also, her story leaves a few doors wide open. …that is; for Silas, Maddie, Ava, and Nina….with a sprinkle of Nathan, Liesl and Lord only knows who else.
I know that many of GH fans do not want to see Nina back. Personally, I cannot wait for her resurgence. As a mentally stable Nina, her life will just get started. Michelle will shine as Nina…..with Franco by her side.

Again, good luck, Kristen….I await seeing you again, ANYWHERE, with bated breath….

Shay

“I know that many of GH fans do not want to see Nina back”……You talkin’ to me, CeeCee???? LOL…..

CeeCee
CeeCee

Not necessarily you, my loveRly, Shay. LOL. but, there are MANY who do not like Nina. I am not too crazy about the character right now, but I love Michelle Stafford. Always have. I am waiting for her return so that I will not bite my tongue when I say……”she’s maahhvelous, baby”…..later, friend.

CeeCee

Shay, you may be on to something about your “pet”, Grossalie” …. I want her to be Sonny’s daughter with Helena….LOL. Far fetched? Not in Port Charles, it isn’t.

Shay
Shay

CeeCee….You are so obsessed with Sonny’s admittedly prodigious record of impregnations, that you imagine each and every stray who wanders into Port Charles to be a product of his loins!!!! LOL. While one certainly can never discount the debauched don as a prospective baby daddy for Grossalie, I’m thinking this low-rent miss may be of Zacchara or Lansing (Trevor, that is….) extraction. She has that New Yawk connection, so those options make sense from a geographical perspective, although there are countless other possibilities to be plucked from Port Charles’ past. A Smith, Barrett or even an Eckart (Fluke)???? But a Cassadine???? I simply cannot fathom such a guttersnipe emanating from any male belonging to that line of aristocracy…save for the most insane and unsavory of members. (Meaning, maybe Stavros forced himself on some unsuspecting tart?…..) Stranger things have happened……

Andrew
Andrew

Was always a fan of KA on OLTL but couldn’t warm up to her Kiki on GH. I think it will do KA a world of good to do something not soap related for awhile (at least it seems like that’s the direction she’s going from what I’ve read).

Kiki has had some good history with Michael and Morgan and it would be a shame to jettison that. But she’s got to do more than just be someone’s girlfriend. Hopefully they’ll find a direction to go with her with the recast.

I am happy with a recast.. .I agree with many others.. Kristen needs to move on and this character was not a good character for her.. Looking forward to a new actress. Have never seen her before..

On other notes.. don’t you just luv GH.. great episode today.. wow.. what other soap could have soooo many characters in the slammer/mental hospital.. Great writing and stories.. Glad to see Nina back and with Heather/Diana!! Awesome..

Fast moving and good stories .. bravo GH writers.. You keep me watching!!

Well not a soap, but it sounds a lot like a few primetime shows: ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK and PRISON BREAK. Ha! Ha!

Adam Newman

Noooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
There is only one girl who can play Kiki and that’s Kristen Alderson. I think the REAL REASON that Kristen left is that they were going to make some changes to Kiki. Now they’ll probably do stuff to her like hate Franco, becoming a rival to Michael, and lots of more stuff. This wouldn’t happen if they just made Kiki into a good character, instead of changing her. Nothing against the actress, but it would have been better to do a murder mystery of Kiki and do a Who done it storyline. Here are the list of suspects if they went down this route
Jason/Jake
Michael
Franco
Fluke
Rose
Nina

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

There’s not one person on that list that would murder a young woman for no reason…with that list even with a reason…except psycho Fluke. If I must find another…Jake…at Helena’s command. But thus far he seems to be able to fight the conditioning to a certain degree…and I see no reason why Helena would even give the order.

Shay
Shay

Are you kidding me??? “Grossalie” will do practically anything if the price is right….she eagerly and gleefully performed nearly all the nefarious deeds Nina requested and has already practically prostituted herself with Michael….now she’s on Helena’s payroll to do God only knows what….Plus, we still have yet to know what freak show of a family connection she has to Port Charles. She’s probably the illegitimate spawn of some don or arch criminal, so killing could be in her blood. However, you’d think a savvy, sophisticated woman like Mrs. Cassadine would have at least recruited a classier “honeytrap” to dupe the Quartermaine heir. “Unrefined type,” indeed, Queen Helena!!!

Kiki
Kiki

Actually here’s what might happen!
Nina: She might go crazy, and try to kill Kiki, thinking its her mother or Ava. Franco might take the fall so Nina might go to jail
Rose: She had sex with Michael, and they might have a cat fight that might lead to Kiki’s death
Jason: Kiki might get in the way of one of his missions, and he might kill her. And when its revealed that he’s Jason, Michael might put him on the same list as Sonny and Carly.
Michael: During Kiki and Rosaline’s cat fight, Michael might have to harm Kiki for his new girlfriend.
Fluke: He might do that in revenge for something
Joselyn: remember when Michael accidental shot a woman, maybe Joss might try to kill Franco, only to have Kiki get in the way, and her “claim” that he killed Kiki when he tried to kill her creating a interesting storyline.

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

Lol…nope. Not a one….crept maybe Fluke. This is all moot anyway since we have a new Kiki. And I don’t think Rosalie is a murderer.

Charday

Please, let this character just go away forever. Also, was really enjoying GH until Franco returned this week.

Chrystie Delancey
Chrystie Delancey

Oh, AMEN to that last part!

For me it has become “be careful what you wish for” because ever since Roger Howarth was back as “Franco,” I have regretted wanting him on GH. And, as much as I loved Robin Mattson when she interacted with “Todd,” I am so over her lately that it makes me want to cry. I think they have wrung out every drop of her craziness and there is nothing more for her to do to shock me.

the only actor, who should have been hired… is Kelley Missal, ex-dani , OLTL

tit for tat in the same arena as , but still an underling, like her mother, Maura West, Ava

these two together, would have sizzled

Kelley Missal would have stratosphere’ Kiki/Lauren… with sizzle tease and bite

theres no taming Kelley Missal… she would have wreaked havoc in Port Charles

like mother like daughter
and too hot to handle from the Corinthos’

I just imagine how KM would have been the ingenue, ala Jenn Lilly’ Theresa, of Salem… and she of Port Charles

just acting their hearts out… mind, body, and soul

fun to go with the possibilities

hey Patrick..
Kelley Missal is on the east coast in college..
I doubt she would have dropped out of college and relocated to CA. to be Kiki ..
so, we have another soap actress Hayley Erin to be Kiki (gawd I hope they call her Lauren) and she will do well. I think there will be a good noticeable change..

Perhaps next year GH will bring on Kelley Missal, I would like that too..

I hope they call the new character Lauren, too!

Shay, Shay, Shay. I guess my attempt at sarcasm failed miserably.
Yes,Helena is a blue blood, literally, at this point; she is dead, as far as I’m concerned. But, I digress. The crux of the matter is that aristocrats are crazier than Berserk, the Viking.
Throughout history, aristocrats/royals have been known to have a few screws loose. From Haakon, the Crazy, to Otto, the Mad Monarchist. And, their illegitimate offspring were littered hither and yon.
Helena and her crew are no different…well, perhaps not Nikolas.
You are right. Who’s to say, Rosalie, the guttersnipe (lol,,,I have not seen that word since OLIVER TWIST), was not fathered by any of the Cassadine’s crazy men?
Helena is too old to have given birth to Rosalie, anyway. But, that would have been some plot twist, no?

On another note. When Helena was at the pier in full view, I was amazed to see what great legs she has, for a lady of a certain age. I don’t blame her for showing them off. Later, I hope….depending on the power lines.
We are expecting 60-70-mile-hour damaging winds in Southampton.

Not at all, CeeCee….I did get your stab at sarcasm….I was just carrying it on a bit further, because your, um, “preoccupation” with all things Sonny never fails to amuse me!!!! You really have quite comically captured his essence on numerous occasions! You were also very spot-on about all those randy, insanity-tetched royals of yore and how they scattered their seeds far and wide…LOL. Hence, while I can totally picture some inborn-crazed Cassadine cornering a chambermaid and having Grossalie be the result, I still somehow suspect that her origins are more humbly-based in the Bronx…or some other NY borough???? Just a vibe I get from her….I definitely think she sprang forth from the illicit union of an as-yet unnamed smarmy mafioso and smoldering mamacita. The question that remains is just which one…LOL. Having said that, I do agree about Helena…..love or loathe her, she is most fit and fettle for a woman of her maturity…….and icy elegance personified!!! I love her mink-clad couture and diamond-encrusted accoutrements….perfectly fitting for her role as a high-class Cruella DeVille! (CT’s masterful portrayal as this cunning character is such a departure from her usual roles….I first encountered this actress as “Clarissa” on “Capitol,” and there she was a totally different form of female…..a salt-of-the-earth-mother and as good a woman as they come….quite the contrast to this current crone of an arch-villainess!) Having said that, I hope all is well tonight in Southampton….I saw the weather map which indicated you were getting a wickedly windy winter wallop, though perhaps not quite as frightful as first expected….seems Boston and R.I. will be bearing the brunt of this storm. But take care and keep in touch, all the same!

Hi, Shay,
Yes, we were very lucky…the “blizzard” was not as frightful or as intense as expected. We did not lose power, thank God. But, it is very frustrating listening to the same cr@p over and over on TV. Everything is preempted.
I am not sure if you have ever visited NYC, and all its boroughs. But, there has always been a great misconception about the Bronx. There are parts of the Bronx that are very well-kept…such as parts of Pelham Bay and into Westchester……mainly Italian, and Irish heritage, albeit most are ‘migrating’ to Scarsdale and points North. The county gets a bad rap because parts of the South Bronx have ‘gone to pot’.
Manhattan proper is very safe (sadly since 9-11) ….I love the hustle and bustle. My parents have offices on Wall St., so, to me it feels very safe.
As far as Rosalie is concerned, what exactly is her purpose? And, how convenient for La Grande Dame to have such access to her. What is Helena holding over her head? What has Rosalie done? I doubt TPTB know themselves…..they think of “stuff” as they go along.
So, because Rosalie has such easy access to Michael (sexually or otherwise), she is the best candidate to keep an eye on him, per se.
I am continuously taken aback by the ease everyone falls into bed with anyone and everyone. I never pictured Michael with Rosalie. I guess I am too old fashioned, even at my age. It seems that no one has any pudor……namely, one, over-the-hill mama, Alexis. ‘Tis no wonder her daughter follows her lead. …no bashing, people…it is just my opinion. What can I say? Blame it on my upbringing.
Later, Shay…..

CeeCee….Good news indeed that you were spared the worst of the blizzard…I listened to a radio host who hails from “Long Island” and he said that the snowstorm was pretty much par for the course….as in what he grew up with most winters, and not all that out of the ordinary. As long as everyone remained safe is what really counts! I know exactly what you mean about the endlessly imposing special reports….in this day of digital designations and wall-to-wall news networks, it hardly seems necessary to pummel people with the same, monotonous info minute-by-minute, and on every single channel….does that mean you missed Tuesday’s GH??? If so, it wasn’t all that remarkable….more maddening Fluke identity teases being tossed out at a snail’s pace, Helena still swanning about in her fur-clad splendor, confabbing with Fluke and menacing her “Soldier Boy,’ Sonny and Julian continuing to plot and play as “besties,” blah blah blah. This mega-storyline has now officially gone from being completely compelling to just beyond boring! About the only new wrinkle was Silas bringing the adorable Avery to visit her jailbird mama, Ava…rather heart-rending, but I just want them to get to the denouement of who’s Fluke sooner rather than later…..it is past tres tedious to watch this convoluted mess day after day, no matter how bravura a performance AG is providing the audience. Basta basta!!!! (And if it turns out he’s the result of a split-personality/psychological lapse, then I will feel forever cheated….this malicious miscreant must be of real flesh and blood, and apart from the original person of Lucas Lorenzo Spencer!) As for my New York references, yes, I should have singled out “South Bronx”…my bad. Of course, one must keep up to date with all the different boroughs and their developments, since some previously less-regarded areas have become re-gentrified and “hot” again, thanks to the astronomical real estate values. Anyway, what I was getting at, is Grossalie seems to be a hardened, low-rent city gal through and through….to me she simply screams out as an issue of a wiseguy and his wench….I just cannot figure out which one! I even thought of Joe Scully (father or son) as additional possibilities. It would appear that she has scant higher education or social graces, which should she have been born of Cassadine blood, I would think she would have finagled one way or t’other……it doesn’t make a lot of sense that she would have a biological link to the aristocracy, yet no leverage from the secret of keeping it to herself. Instead, she was first working as Nina’s glorified slave and now as Helena’s lackey. I’ve also considered that perhaps Carlos is her father. His age has never been firmly established…but he certainly looks to be in his 40’s! So Grossie could have been the result of his teenaged fling, not unlike Sonny and Olivia’s Dante….and speaking of the currently not-so-dandy don, maybe his ne’er-do-well father, Mike C. the Gambler, is responsible for Ms. Martinez’s existence. He already… Read more »

I wish Kristen Alderson well and agree that she was classy with her tweet. She was great as Starr Manning because she was given the opportunity to grow and develop the character instead of the SORAS manure.

The problem with Kiki, for me, was that either the writing and/or the acting was just too much like Starr Manning. I get annoyed when actors are cast for different roles, but they do the same schtick. I love it when an actor can mesmerize me and I forget I am watching an actor, but a character.

The thing about Kristen’s portrayal of Kiki that I will NEVER forget (because it was so hilarious) was when she jumped into the water to save Michael. She did not jump in like someone who knew what she was doing. She jumped in spread eagle instead of diving in or going feet first (like Roger Howarth did later in that episode).

Hey, everyone. I am new here and only planned to read, but after reading all the comments here, I really want to add my two cents. I am 45 years-old, and my name is Kiki, and I can assure you, I am not a stripper, a call-girl, or a phone sex operator! LOL! I work for a non-profit animal shelter…not in the sex industry I was named for my paternal grandmother who was a breathtakingly beautiful woman born in 1920. She had poor health from early in life, but went to college, married, and raised a family. She was a loving and gentle grandma until her much-too-early death at age 62. I know the focus of this article is on the new Kiki, but I just wanted to add my own perspective about the name! When I think of the name Kiki, I think of myself, of course, but also the lovely, gentle, and compassionate grandma I loved. The stunning woman who still turned heads in her older years. The woman who encouraged my love of nature and animals; who took me to church; who sang me french lullabies; who encouraged my love of reading and learning. She was a gourmet cook; an artist with sewing, embroidery, and knitting; a beautiful singer; devoutly religious; superbly well-read; and extraordinarily compassionate. I can promise you, neither she, nor I, had (or have) any problems being “taken seriously” in life, either because of the name Kiki, or any other reason. Just a thought on the name Kiki. The name doesn’t make the woman who she is. Who a woman is makes the name. P.S. I wish both Kristin Alderson and the “new Kiki” all the best!! I loved Kristin as Kiki, but I felt her talents were wasted in a lack-luster role. I know she says she isn’t, but I can’t help but hope she is the new “Hope Logan” on B & B!

Hayley bears a striking resemblance to Emme Rylan, in my opinion. Kind of wish they’d gone with a brunette. But in any case, she seems like a very capable actress. Will miss Kristin as I’ve watched her grow up, but I wish her luck in future endeavors. She had a great chemistry with Roger; it’ll be interesting to see how Hayley and Roger interact on camera.

This is so upsetting….this girl is not good enough she has big shoes. I love Kristen Alderson. If she leaves I will serious Stop watching the show. That girl doesn’t even look anything like Kiki. I am in love with Kristen Alderson and she will be missed. They should have just write off Kiki.

ABSOLUTELY hate the new KiKi! Maybe if you would have left her with darker hair or something, but putting her as a blonde and making her larger than the petite Kristen Anderson, just feels wrong. I don’t mind that GH changes the character, but pick someone who fits the role.

Absolutely agree – the scene where she found her dad (Silas Clay) was overkill and bordered annoying which is unfortunate b/c Michael deserved better. Perhaps the new writers can make his death a hallucination….

Does GH’s Margaux Have A Connection To Someone In Port Charles? If So, Who?

This week, General Hospital viewers saw that the ABC daytime drama series is teasing a potential pairing of Drew (Billy Miller) and the new district attorney in town, Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Hendrickson), after the two characters run into each other at a concession stand at the cancelled baseball game.

As fans of the soap genre know, Miller and Hendrickson also played former love interests on The Young and the Restless as Billy Abbott and Chloe Mitchell.

During Hendrickson’s first #AskGH live Twitter Q&A when asked: “Is your character connected to someone on the show?”  Elizabeth responded: “As of now Margaux is new to town … but you never know, there may be some connection that has not be revealed yet :)”

That tweet has left fans speculating if perhaps Margaux, has an ex in Port Charles, is tied to a major family in someway, or perhaps has some legal trouble past?

Recently on GH. when Chase (Josh Swickard) arrived on the scene as the new cop (following Nathan’s (Ryan Paevey) untimely death), it was later revealed that he was actually the half-brother to Finn (Michael Easton).  And as we know in the soaps, connections are usually the key to more long term success in a role, rather than being just a standalone character, but there have been exceptions.

So, who would you like to see Margaux have a connection to on GH?  What do you think will happen with her character? Comment below.
