Kimberly McCullough takes to Twitter to address her decision to leave GH!

The news that Kimberly McCullough (Robin) the long time beloved favorite of General Hospital has opted to not stay with the series in 2012, has sent some shockwaves through the soap industry, because it signifies another huge loss of talent for GH as it battles to stay on the air, and because the genre is losing another one of its finest performers.

This afternoon, McCullough to to her Twitter account to address her decision to leave the series and to say “thank you” to her many fans and followers

Kimberly tweeted, “Thank you for your tweets. I have read ALL of them. I wish I had words for the type of gratitude I feel for all of your support for so many years.  Personally, I feel like it’s the right time for me to pursue my dream of directing episodic TV as well as writing and directing feature films. I am heartbroken as well. To leave Robin, a character that is a huge part of myself and my life.  GH is my family and you (the fans) are like my extended family. I hope you will come with my along the journey. I’ve enjoyed getting to know so many of you.  If if wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t have been able to make NGFL, a film that ultimately gave me the courage to leave the nest and step behind the camera.  In the coming months Jason Thompson and I will pour our heart and soul into the story that is given to us.  I can promise you that much.  Everything else is out of our control. I am sad too, but I intend to make the best of it.  Again, thanks for the love and opinions and support. I appreciate it more than I can ever express. Stay tuned.”

Jason Thompson (Patrick) also took to his Twitter account to post his sentiments on the imminent departure of his long time scene partner and dear friend from Port Charles tweeting:  “As Kimberly McCullough always does with grace, dignity, heart and courage.  To you, the fans who have supported us for years..with love, thank you! As we do everyday..we’ll put everything we have into what’s next.  It goes without saying that it won’t be the same without my better half. But I couldn’t be more proud of Kimberly! xxoo”

Hankies! This is so sad! Let us know your thoughts as it looks like this is the end of Scrubs!

Now, I know, GH is going off the air for sure, it cannot survive losing both KMc and JJ months apart with no other veterans to come back to our beloved soap. It is losing its legacy. So long!

This is truly a devastating blow to the GH canvas. I wish Kim all the best, but it’s truly heartbreaking to see her and Jonathan Jackson, two actors who many have grown up watching — and who, themselves have literally grown up on GH — gone. Between McCullogh and Jackson’s exits, it feels like GH has just lost a leg, and this further speaks to the rumblings of “the writing on the wall” for GH’s potential cancellation :(. If this was an issue of storyline for both of them, I feel the writers really should have worked with these actors… Read more »

I pray that they don’t kill the character, I love both Robin and actress Kimberly McCullough, i wish her the best, but seriously I don’t think I can take it if they kill the character of Robin. So heres hoping they do something believable enough for us fan to take. I hope Kimberly isn’t retiring from acting, this is just so sad.

i have been a fan of kimberly since she first stepped onto the gh canvas – she is so talented & such an awesome actress – gh is losing a big chunk of their talented staff!!
i know she will do an excellent job in whatever the future holds for her – she will be missed big time!

Wow. Not good for GH. I guess her contract is up and she didn’t want to stay till the end. They’ll probably kill off the character in a mob hit meant for Sonny. This means less hospital stories, more mob.

Brenda, Jax, Lucky, Robin………sad to see what is happening.

I won’t be watching Robin die and Patrick move on to someone else. Emma belongs with Robin. They could write Robin and Emma off in a way that when GH ends, She and Emma can reunite with Patrick.

While I am excited for Kimberly from a professional standpoint, I am heartbroken over the loss of such a talented actress on GH and its implications for Scrubs and the character, Robin Scorpio. I personally don’t see GH lasting much longer on ABC and it would have been nice to see Robin and Patrick ride off into the sunset together when the show ends or potentially goes online like I hope OLTL will. But, now it seems like they will kill off Robin and I would not be surprised if GH goes air shortly after that. I will miss Kimberly… Read more »

I am devastated at the thought of GH klilling Robin. I find it an insult to me and the actress. JJ said that they were keeping Lucky alive because he is important. I feel Robin and Kimberly are just as important. Robin was a life line to many who suffered with HIV/AIDS and to just end her life so Patrick could go on hits me wrong. GH could have Robin AND Emma missing and presumed dead. I don’;t want to see Patrick’s new love interest which SID is already pushing with ROBIN’S baby, a baby Robin always wanted. Sorry but… Read more »

Soaps on ABC are dead and they are not coming back to life. Kimberly, in an act of self-preservation, is simply leaving a sinking ship before it goes under. Very sad.

The show ran successfully for years without Jon J. & Kim M., I don’t see why they still can’t. Nothing special about them.

I read that they are indeed killing off the character of Robin Scorpio-
Drake. He HIV status is being upgraded to AIDS. By killing her off that closes the door to her returning in the future. Couldn’t they just have her being guilty of killing of Lisa Niles and send her to prison until they can bring back Kimberley.

However with all this being said I also believe that ABC is going to take GH off the air.

I wish Kimberly all the best with her new path in life, she has been on the show since being very young, she will be missed. She has shown us the different acting roles that she has played, very much talent, miss you already, I have been a long time General Hospital fan for many years.

I dont mind that Robin is leaving. I mind if she is leaving and killing off the character. That is bothersome. If she didn’t drop in but every 3months for 2 days, she could check into GH, that way if she career didn’t work out, she could come back as Robin, and not be some lookalike, twin, or some other ridiculous character.

I heard that Robin is presumed dead in a mob related explosion therefore if GH survives and she wants to come back, she can.

She can’t leave soon enough for me, she was a better actress at 5 then as an adult. Seen her in other series also. I hated when they brought her back. There is no chemistry between Her & Patrick (Jason). Never was a believable pairing.

I will really miss Kimberly McCullough. I wish they would find another pretty and talented star like her so that viewers don’t lose the character of Robin Scorpio. I really wish Kimberly McCullough would stay.

I love you Kimber. I will follow you wherever your stardom takes you because I love you very much. I wish you would reconsider your decision and saty on GH.

Why did the character die? She could have just been off the camera. There aren’t many whole families left in GH.

Since the first time you came on as that cute little daughter of Anna and Robert I was hooked. I used to take care of a little girl on chemo with ringlets like that. She didn’t make it. The fact that you did let me believe that angels like that would go on. You have to do what you have to do but your loss is the “jumping the shark” episode for me. Take care and make lots of memories with your family. Blessings.

I have been watching GH since my teen years and now I am in my 40’s. I have watched many soaps but I can truly say that Robin Scorpio-Drake (Kimberly Anne McCullough) is/was my favorite character in soap opera history. There will never be anyone like her. Her character will be missed. I am still fighting back tears. I wish Kimberly infinite success in all she does.

GH’s Kirsten Storms Shares More Details on Her Brain Surgery and Recovery

On Sunday, Kirsten Storms (Maxie, General Hospital) posted a follow-up message on her Instagram account to her friends and followers on how she is doing following her brain surgery, and to answer any questions that may be out on there; so she decided to share further details.

Storms expressed: “First, thank you for all of the well wishes I’ve received over the last few days. 🥰 Little bit of info for those who are wondering.. I spent the last few years having random health issues that I disregarded as side affects to my medications or just something I was experiencing due to age. When I went to get an MRI for some severe neck pain I have been experiencing for the last few months (I assumed this neck pain was also causing my frequent “migraines”) my amazingly thorough orthopedist ordered an MRI of my head just to be on the “safe side” – even though that isn’t his area of expertise.  Truly a great doctor.  That’s when we stumbled upon a rather large, very full of fluid, cyst that was attached to the lower portion of brain. I feel very fortunate that my situation wasn’t more serious and that I had a wonderful neurosurgeon who immediately knew how to fix it. I’m not gonna lie, brain surgery had me nervous, but I’m immensely thankful to my family, friends, and incredible “work family” who have been supportive, kind and loving during a time when I’ve been feeling a lot of emotions. Work is a great place to be everyday and for the 2 months leading up to my surgery I found a lot of comfort being around the people I’ve worked beside for so many years. I’m excited to get back to it after my recovery. (Yes, they shaved a portion of my head, so please no comments if you don’t like my hair. It’s temporary.). Again, thank you to everyone for sending positive vibes my way. It’s not gone unnoticed. ♥️

Fun fact: I now firmly believe the new plates in my brain will give me some sort of special ability. Fingers crossed I can suddenly knit a sweater in 1 day. Ooo maybe 1 hour. 😮”

Please continue to send well-wishes to Kirsten via the comment section below as she is on the mend, and we look forward to her return to GH when she is recovered.
