    I’m happy she’s doing well, but I’d rather have Jen Lilley still be in the role as Maxie Jones.

    Jen Lilley did a good job after being put in a very tough position, but Kirsten Storms is Maxie to me, and I’m glad she’s back. Looking forward to seeing her back on the air!

      I think she did too. I am happy to see KS back, I am sure that JL knew it would happen. I don’t like to see any of the actors out of work and I hope JL finds new work soon. She did a great job.

    So Maxie is back on the canvas by September 5th, I am thrilled that KS is back in the role. Currently it seems that Jason is on to something. I believe Maxie’s husband Matt will be out of jail soon too. I really think this new investigation will show that Ewen is the real Lisa murderer. I am looking forward to this so I hope it happens. Maybe Lisa knew who Ewen was and that he was not a Dr. at all. If you watched recently Ewen did get upset and did tell Kate to stop calling him Dr. We shall see. The show has been great, all fans should keep watching because it is getting better each and every day. The writting has been fantastic along with the acting. I am so happy with the direction the show has taken. I cannot wait for more.

        LOL, I was only kidding. It is just fun to throw crazy story ideas around. I love playing fantasy soaps like others like to play fantasy football.

    SO happy to have Kirsten back! Don’t mean to badmouth Jen, but she only kept the character on screen….she never was Maxie to me. I know she tried but I just couldn’t see her as Maxie. (Never saw Jennfer Bradford as Carly either.) I can start caring about Maxie again and can’t wait to see what she gets up too! Love me some Kirsten!

    Thank You!!!! Dead weight needs to leave.

      Wow.. Karen.. that is not nice at all.. as a new watcher to General Hospital, I loved Jen and thought she did a great job and will miss her much. I remember Kirsten for many years as Belle on Days of our lives.. She was good.. but was not too impressed with her on her reality show..

      Try not to be a bully and insult Jen and call her “Dead Weight” .. She was not dead weight. She is a young talented actress that was in a tough situation and did well stepping in for an actress that left the role due to an illness…

        Okay spokes person for jen, opinions are like buttholes, everybody has one.

        TS, I agree with you. I’m glad to have Kirsten back, but Jen was talented and at least kept the character alive while she was gone.

      Not sure if you read or watch any of Laura Wrights interviews. She is such a great person and she really supports her fellow castmates. Whether they are veteran GH actors, newcomers and even the OLTL veterans that have come to GH, she is a cheerleader for all. She happens to mention the many bad comments that she sees on comments from FB to MF and others. I know she does not like to see negative comments made about her colleagues. I will never know if she would see you comment or if Jen Lilly would see your comment but if any of them ever did they may remember who you are and not care if watched or didnt watch GH. The economy has hit the entire country, this entire world for that matter and no one wants to see someone else to lose their job. A true fan of GH would be saddened to see any actor on the show to lose their job. Maybe you are dead weight at your job and they should get rid of you.

        Boo Hoo Hoo Cry me a River!! Then I guess I’m not a true fan, especially with all the stupid writing going on over there. Maybe you should let laura & the other girl speak for themselves.

    It’s true that absence makes the heart grow fonder. I never cared for the character of Maxie but Jen Lilley made her unbearable! Maxie was never as whiny as she was when played by Lilley. Storms brings that bit of bitch and vulnerability, that while annoying, is so much better than Lilley’s version. Welcome back, Kirsten!!

    Best news ever. I love Kristen as Maxie. I have missed her.

    Yay for Kristen!!! 🙂 I feel happy and joy since she was gone in late last year.. Maxie go back to becomes Maxie Jones once more Maxie Hunter and need go after Damian Spinelli played by Bradford Anderson(he’s not my related,ok…LOL)..

    NO-ONE can ever replace Ktristen. I am so happy that she is back? Time for Maxie and Spinelli to get back together.

    So glad to see that Kirsten is back. Now that we have grown to love Jen Lilley, they need to give her a new role. Thanks Jen Lilley for playing the part.

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?

WATCH: 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Winners Virtual Interviews

This year’s 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were back on television for the first time since 2011, and back on CBS.  Due to the times we are living in the throes of the coronavirus pandemic, the usual kudofest, honoring the best in daytime programming, had to move from its originally scheduled live event to a virtual one.

That also means for us at Michael Fairman TV, the usual backstage “Winner’s Walk” interviews conducted immediately following some of your daytime drama favorites big wins also had to altered for this unique year.

So we had our own, if you will, “Virtual Winner’s Walk” albeit without the walk and without the glitz and glamour.  That being said, it all felt much more intimate as we spoke immediately following Friday night’s broadcast with these newly crowned winners:  Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott); Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Heather Tom (Katie Logan Spencer); who tied One Life to Live’s Erika Slezak (Ex-Viki) with the most wins by an actress in Daytime Emmy history with 6,  Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Bryton James (Devon), and Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’, Eva Larue (Ex-Celeste).  All four of these conversations were emotional, candid, and touching.

Over the weekend, we caught up with Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series winner, Tamara Braun (Ex-Kim Nero, General Hospital) for another heartfelt chat on her second all-time win in the category, and Outstanding Writing Team in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, who won this award for the fifth time in his career as he shared how much he learned from his late legendary parents and Y&R and B&B co-creators: Lee Phillip Bell, who was part of the In-Memoriam tribute on the telecast, and the late Bill Bell.

Each of these interviewsare also posted on The Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube.  Make sure to “subscribe” to the channel for more celebrity interviews and features.
