If you followed Kirsten Storms ( Maxie) of General Hospital last night on her fun twitter page, you may have gotten some clues as to whether or not Storms is getting set for her big return to the soapland!  As many know, the beloved and talented Storm, took a medical leave from the ABC soap several months ago and had been temporarily replaced by actress, Jen Lilley.

Now Kirsten tweeted, “Handled some bizzznaaas today. being a grown up is tiring…AND I DON’T EVEN HAVE KIDS!”

Then Storms fans and followers began to question what she meant by her tweet where she next indicated to them,  “You will be happy with this news. (and good guess btw) ….I ‘m trying to give you as many hints that I can without getting in trouble….sssshhhhh.”

Are you excited if Storms is finally on her way back into the action of Port Charles, just as new EP and headwriter, Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati are taking over the PC ship? Let us know!

I’m decdicated to Kristen and (Maxi) because of my commentment to the show. But I will tell you something, her replacement has had to be the one of the HARDEST and MOST SIGNIFICANT in daytime history, because of HOW the role is played. Actress, Jen Lilley. has been remarkable bringing the kind of energy to the character that Kristen does. In fact yesterday, I was on line and I had to STOP and look up to the T.V., because Jen Lilley soundes so much like Kristen. Dorothy Lyman was the 1st Opal on AMC and then Jill Larson took ovver (22years ago) and she was able to enact, sound, and give the same kind of presence to role as Dorothy, all the while, while making it her own, so not to MISS Dorthy, who brought such a uniqueness to the role. Jill should have taken home an Emmy in the 22 year’s. It’s not fair, the same ole same ole being nominated. By the way, that voice Jill uses as Opal, so did Dorothy use when she had the role. Both of those women went to ths same High School and are the same age. Too bad GH cant make Jen Lilley, Maxi’s long lost twin…. that would be something.

I agree with everything you said. Jen is doing good but there no one like our Maxie. Hurry back Kirsten. You always crack me up.

I cannot wait for Kirsten to come back to GH. The story lines lately have been pretty bad. Kirsten is a great actress and she brings something to the show. Jen Lilley had some big shoes to fill and unfortunately she is no where near the level of Kirsten. She is quite annoying trying to act like Kirsten. It would have been better direction for her to bring her own to the role. I cannot even watch her scenes. As soon as she comes on, I have to fast forward through it. Which is too bad, because I really enjoy Spinnelli and miss his scenes because I cannot watch her.

If this is true, welcome back Kirstin. Your replacement did a good job, but you are the best.

I think that Jen Lilley has done an OUTSTANDING job in portraying Kirsten’s, Maxie, as true to form as humanly possible– but we are all looking forward to the day that Kirsten reappears on our screen as Maxie Scorpio Jones!

I may be in the minority, but I prefer Jen Lilley in the part. Her chemistry with the rest of the cast is off the charts and she brings a vulnerability to Maxie that is both heartbreaking and a joy to watch. What she’s done with the character is taken her from ditzy ingenue to neurotic adult and I’ll miss her when she leaves 🙁

This NuMaxie did a great job. But its time for KS to come back and be written as a women with ‘issues’ not as such a scatter brain.

Lilly has done a good job replacing Kirsten, but I can’t wait for Kirsten to return, she is perfect for the role of Maxie.

And so is Lilly. That girl is so good that U can almost forget she isn’t Kristen if you are JUST listening and not watching. It happened to me. I had to STOP what I was doing and look at the televison screen. That has only happened to me once before with a replacement.

I would love it if Kristen can come back soon. She is one of my favorite GH characters. However, I have a feeling that the change in mangament and writers has caused issues,. That might be the reason for the absense of Lucky , Luke and Robin’s characters leaving GH. I hope that the writers will see that this is indeed a bad move as all of these actors have made the roles and characters who they are and NO other actor as been able to replace them.

Kirsten posted on her twitter page that she will be back on GH at the end of the month.

Happy 57th Anniversary Today to General Hospital

ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital turns 57 today, and remains the current longest-running soap opera on the air.  GH debuted back on April 1, 1963.

The show was created by the husband-and-wife team of Frank and Doris Hursley.  Originally, the soap was not given a name of a particular town in which the drama of the hospital was set in.  However, that all changed in the 1970’s when GH was set in Port Charles.

GH expanded from a 30-minute show to a 45-minute show on July 26, 1976 and eventually went to a full-hour where it has remained back on January 16, 1978.

Throughout its decades on the air, GH was the impetus for two spin-offs; Port Charles, (which aired from 1997-2003) and primetime’s GH: Night Shift (2007-2008),

The show went through many ups and downs over its history, but things changed dramatically for the better, when by the end of the 1970’s and facing cancellation, ABC brought in executive producer, Gloria Monty to steer the ship.  Monty created supercouple Luke and Laura played by Tony Geary and Genie Francis, and opened the show up with exciting location shoots, and from then on GH has remained a firm mainstay in the daytime line-up.

Today, Frank Valentini is the series executive producer, and the soap is co-written by the head writing team of Dan O’Connor and Chris Van Etten.

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital. Felix says give it two weeks and she will do something to mess things up.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

Scene after scene, Kelly Thiebaud has lit up the screen and put the “feisty” back onto the ABC soap opera.  As an actress, Kelly can go from the heavy drama, to the comedic, to the sexy, all with ease.

In the March 30th issue of Soap Opera Digest, Thiebaud said of her return:  “Frank Valentini reached out to me the beginning of the year and mentioned that the writers wanted to bring me back for a bit.  I said,’Of course, I will,  I would love nothing more than that!”‘ I just really connect with Britt and have a blast playing her.”

So let us know, have you been enjoying the return of Kelly as Dr. Britt Westbourne, thus far? What do you think Britt is up to? Comment below.
