In a oh-so-cute and endearing interview today, real life lovebirds General Hospital’s Kirsten Storms (Maxie) and former GH star, Brandon Barash (Ex-Johnny) along with their baby daughter, Harper were the very special guests on TRadiov’s Soap Box with Martha Madison and Lilly Melgar!

During the episode, Kirsten and Brandon discussed how their relationship began as friends and blossomed into a romance when the timing was right for both of them after both finding themselves single at the same time.   They also discussed how they take turns with baby duties  in taking care of Harper, and that one of the things they love about each other is they laugh a lot together and have a good time!

Later, Brandon discussed how he became involved with Muscular Dystrophy Association as a National Celebrity Ambassador.  And the duo reveal they were home watching the recent Daytime Emmys and what a train wreck of a red carpet presentation they thought it was when watching the four millennial social media hosts attempt to interview the soap stars.  Brandon’s comments certainly hit home, and all of us without question, would agree upon!

Watch Kirsten, Brandon, Harper on Soap Box after the jump! Then share your comments below!

Loved watching SoapBox today with Kirsten and Brandon on as their guests. I don’t think some people know just how much of a big deal it was to see Kirsten and Martha in the same room together, much less talking and laughing as they were doing. I wish they would have spoken about their time on Days of Our Lives and their experiences (Kirsten leaving, Martha taking over, the backlash, etc.), but I understand they only had so much time and I felt like they had so much to cover. Brandon and Kirsten are adorable and my God, did they… Read more »

Absolutely love Kirsten Storms, she is just a wonderful actress. She has an unbelievable amount of range and over the years has shown that rare ability to get you to like and root for a character that is flawed and at times undeserving. Brandon is a great actor as well. His portrayal of Johnny was always so layered and nuanced. He always made just the right acting choices. His talent is sorely missed on this show. As much as I love Kirsten, I just can’t watch her scenes with Nathan. She deserves so much better. I’m sure the actor is… Read more »

I agree, and Storms has more chemistry with a Chia Pet than she does with Robo Vacuum. I think she should have been paired up with Patrick–instant chemistry, instant angst and instant internal conflict. I miss the tormented Johnny–miss him tickling the keys with soft refrains of Chopin. What they could have done with this character and how they failed both Johnny and the viewers. Sigh. But onward and upward. Kristin and Brandon have so much charisma, that I would imagine would get a second hand high being in the small room pictured above with just those two. And that… Read more »

GH shouldve brought Johnny back and paired him with Maxi…if Dr. Mutter can become C.O.S. of G.H. then Johnny couldve become a cop…he couldve also learn he was really the son of Dr.Mutter if she needed one…Madelyn couldve easily taken the baby from her right after he was born and given him to Anthony, who was her lover at the time, to raise for whatever reason…or Maxi shouldve been paired with Patrick…here Maxi agonizing over thinking she killed Robin, Patrick and Maxi comfort each other and find themselves falling in love, getting married just as Robin returns…the great drama that… Read more »

Jim, you’re hired. You should be writing for GH. (Dr. Mutter? HA HA!). I haven’t seen GH in awhile but last time I saw Maxie with Robocop, I found myself rooting for them. Why? Three reasons: 1. My expectations have been lowered. 2. 2. They have turned Levi into a walking plot device who is so horrible that Robocop can only look grand by comparison and 3. Kristin Storms is magic-she has chemistry with everyone. I like the scenario you mapped out for Maxie and Patrick–the actors and the situation would be so ripe with possibilities that the scenes would… Read more »

I think Ryan Paevy’s acting has greatly improved as I’ve mentioned in previous posts…and I think he and Kirsten have great chemistry! I’ve gotten quite used to him and I think he’s a standout as the “house hunk” with the heart of gold. I hope they keep Ryan in this role. He’s starting to seem…clipped lil sentences and all…a natural. As for Kirsten and Brandon, they seem down-to-earth, intelligent and great together. I’m always relieved if I get a good vibe after reading or seeing an interview with an actor/actress I like. If I don’t like him or her…it interferes… Read more »

Thanks so much for sharing this Michael! I have loved Kirsten and Brandon’s chemistry since 2008. I even predicted they would make a good off-screen couple in 2010. Good to see that I was right. So happy for them and their lovely family. I wish them all the best.

They are so cute together, I want Brandon to be the new Adam Newman on The Young and The Restless. He is sexy, charming and a wonderful actor.

Dear Brandon & Kirsten, I am a 51 yr old lady living with Muscular Dystrophy! I am thankful to Brandon for all he does for MDA. I also gave a small donation to his Muscle Walk, the first year that I decided to form Team Quirkiestroh a Muscle Walk team in Houston, TX. I had contacted him through MDA corporate, and he had the office mail me a autographed copy of pages of his GH script! Thank you Brandon, that is something I’ll cherish for the rest of my life! Keep doing your good work for MDA. Maybe one day… Read more »

Oh Susan…that was such a nice note. I do hope there’s a way for Michael (Fairman) to pass along your sentiments to Brandon. I’m sure it would be rewarding for him to read your appreciation. Best to you!

EVERYBODY thinks they have an absolutely beautiful baby, Even when others may look at the child and think, oh my!!!!! But Harper is a gorgeous baby. She is without a doubt a Gerber baby. But then again, how could she not, with the mommy an daddy she has?

Kirsten is daytime’s Carole Lombard – she can make you laugh, then break your heart within a NY minute. GH has never given her the ‘star status’ she deserves on the show and this ridiculous pairing w/ Kato Kalin the house guest who never leaves, is just so wrong – he’s god awful. She needs a Clark Gable… Nathan will do for now, but he’s not comparable as an actor.

I always thought they had great chemistry, and I hoped their characters would get together on GH. I adore them both.

GH’s Kelly Thiebaud Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

In heartbreaking scenes on last week’s episodes of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud) gets the news she has feared for quite some time – that her battle with Huntington’s disease has progressed even further than she imagined.

The moments were all played with devastating perfection by Daytime Emmy winner, Kelly Thiebaud, who has GH fans know will be departing the ABC daytime drama series soon.

In story, Austin (Roger Howarth) set up a consultation with a Huntington’s Disease expert, Dr. Talone. When the three meet to discuss Britt’s case, she learns that symptoms she thought were stress from being on the run a few years ago, and when she was in prison, were the early manifestations of the disease.

After Dr. Talone examines Britt, she reveals that Britt now has the signs of stage three Huntington’s.  As for her prognosis, Britt will have ‘significant cognitive impairment’, and while she was anywhere between five to fifteen years in her lifespan, it could be as soon as eighteen months when Britt will need assisted living and full-time care.

When Dr. Talone exits, Austin offers to stay with Britt, but she asks for him to leave her office so she can be alone.  Once by herself and overcome with the news she received (and looking at her framed medical license and business card which says that Britt is Co-Chief of Staff of General Hospital), she finally loses it and tears up her office.  Cody (Josh Kelly) comes upon her, when she is left holding the necklace she found in Peter’s possessions which are the diamonds of the Ice Princess.

Britt is in tears and tells Cody that when she found out her father, Faison had died, she thought it was finally over. However, his reach extends far beyond the grave! Britt is in disbelief that she wasted so much time seeking his approval.  Cody tries to calm Britt down by telling her she is worth loving.  Britt remarks, “Even with what’s been passed down to me?”  Cody is confused and thinks she is talking about the necklace which now makes Britt believe that Cody was only into her for the diamonds.

Later, in the most gut-wrenching and emotional scenes, Britt confesses to her mother, Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) that her disease has progressed. Obrecht wants to get her to a specialist in Toronto, but Britt says she just met with her and she informs her mother she has five to fifteen years to live – and a year and a half before she may require full-time care.  Obrecht promises they will fight this. An overcome Britt asks her to just stop because she doesn’t need a doctor … she needs a mom.  The two embrace, but Obrecht cries Britt deserved a better mother than her. Kathleen Gati and Kelly Thiebaud were extremely touching and effective in these scenes.

When looking at the totality of the arc of this story that played out last week, and the understated and beautiful work of Kelly Thiebaud, it is without question Michael Fairman TV gives our Power Performance of the Week honors to Kelly.

So, what did you think of Kelly’s performances as Britt learns what she will now be faced with in the years ahead and the aftermath? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GH’s Kathleen Gati on Liesl Learning Britt is Sick: “This Was the Most Painful and Profound Episode I Have Filmed in 10 Years”

This week in a preview of a heartbreaking episode of General Hospital, Liesl (Kathleen Gati) will learn her daughter, Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), now has developed symptoms of Huntington’s Disease and its progression is making Dr. Westbourne very sick.

In story, look for Britt to confide in her mother, noting that that the disease is beginning to overtake her body.

Liesl’s portrayer, Kathleen Gati shared with Soap Opera Digest (in their latest issue on newsstand now), just how mutter will react to the news.

Gati expressed: “I have to say this is the most painful and profound episode I have filmed in 10 years.”  Kathleen has played the role of Dr, Liesl Obrecht since 2012.

She goes on to say, “Liesl puts her doctors hat on to give hope to herself and to Britta, encouraging her that they are both well-trained doctors and can find a way to help Britta.”

However, that’s not what Britt wants to hear.  She needs her mother, and the support and comfort from her, at this devastating time in her life.

Kathleen shares it’s at that point that Liesl realizes she needs to stop all the medical talk and just be there for her daughter.

So, are you looking forward to the scenes between Britt and Liesl?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
