In a post on her Instagram account on Friday night, General Hospital fan favorite Kirsten Storms (Maxies Jones) posted a photo of herself about to get her cut-off.  But what is even more important is that Storms confirmed she is already back taping brand new episodes for the summer on the set of the ABC daytime drama series.

Storms post stated: “Maxie’s short hair returns to #GH … and so do I.”

The return of Kirsten is very key to the summer storyline involving; Nathan (Ryan Paevey), Claudette (Bree Williamson), and Griffin (Matt Cohen).  In Storms absense former Days of our Lives cast member, Molly Burnett (Ex-Melanie Jonas) had temporarily replaced her.

Look for Burnett to debut next week on GH, with Storms returning to her role on-air in August.

So, excited to hear from Kirsten and that she is back taping at GH?  What do you think about Kirsten going back to Maxie with shorter-do? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Any Kirsten is good Maxie

Maxie is my favorite character on GH, and a big part of the reason is the layers Storms brings to her. I’ll miss her during her absence, but I am very happy she is feeling better and taping again.

Ditto, Lucky. I love her bubbly-self. She is the type of character whose personality charms and engages the viewer. I would think this is how Kirstin is in reality.

I love Kirsten/Maxie and happy that she’s back. Always loved her short sassy hair.

Hope Burnett’s stay is a short one! There is only one Maxie Jones and it’s Kirsten!! Hope she’s feeling better

What about Robin Richards? I heard fans say she the one and only Maxie Jones.

Ces

Never heard from those fans. Not that memorable to me.

I loved Robin Richards but Kirsten has done an amazing job filling her shoes

Hey, Ces.
I like Molly, but yes, I do want Kirsten back.
I think Molly slid into the Maxie role somewhat awkwardly. Too bad Molly won’t be here long enough to make the role her own.
I must admit, it felt kind of weird seeing Molly as Kirsten. I was one of “Melanie’s” avid fans. But, the facial expressions, the gesture, the dress even, just were not Kirsten. Two completely different personalities, and it showed.
I liked her purse, though. LOL. I have the same RLL bag ( larger version), with the cork motif at the top.

The less of Molly Burnett the better. I can’t wait til Kirsten fills my screen again. I love her so much. The other one? I pass. (See I can be kind when prompted. LoL)

How do we know that Molly will do a crappy job as Maxie. Tuesday’s show is Molly’s first day as Maxie right.

Ces

Well, she was crappy on Days and likes to chew scenery so probably will be an annoyance on GH too.

Molly Burnett is like nails on a chalkboard to me.

I like the shorter hair on her and it is probably easier to do with her busy schedule.

I hope she is well and we will keep her and dismiss Tyler!

I’m very interested in seeing Molly Burnette take on the role. While I’m not a fan of her character on days she doesn’t seem I’ll fit for the part. I loved Jen Liley as Maxie. I almost wanted her to stay. Glad Kristen is doing better and back at home in her role.

robbie

Always thought Jen got a bum rap in the role. But I’m glad this absence will be brief

short absence,short hair-lol

Harry

I know, right? I do like the actress (despite her annoying habit of utilizing vocal fry when she speaks) but I am puzzled by the constant assurance that she will be back when she has yet to leave the screen. We get it, we get it. KS will be back even though she has not quite left yet.
I am not sure why her extremely short absence has to be covered so much or even why they are bothering with a recast during this short period of time. Maxie easily could have gone off to Seattle to be with baby Georgie for some kind of medical emergency.

Melissa
Melissa

Benefit of doubt — maybe they didn’t know how long she would need to be gone? But overall agree, much ado about nothing.

nancy dillingham

Agree with you, Harry! Lazy planning by TPTB–ditto for Nikolas “story line” which is so very dull–and nonsensical.

Celia

Confucius say: she who cuts hair shows signs of rebellion. LOL.

I am hoping with KS taping again already with no sighting of Molly Burnett yet means Molly will only be on for two weeks at the most. A month will be too long. I look forward to seeing KS new shorter do. I liked her hair long, but short and sassy works so well for her.

Tammy

Maxie is always cute … even when she’s frustrating.

Tammy

It’s really sad that people are putting down Molly &she didn’t evergreen have her first airdate. She’s only on for the month of July & filing in for Kirsten who needed the medical leave.
It just shows how petty those who insult her really are.

Harry
Harry

It’s mean, Tammy. I agree. Folks act like these temporary actors are strike breakers or something.

Tammy
Tammy

Exactly.
We’re just lucky to have an established actress play Maxie for what was only a month since she’ll be back soon.
Someone on FB wanted Burnett to dye her hair or wear a wig.
Why can’t people stop being so nitpicking.
We can get over reanimation but not a temp actor change.
Yikes!

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

I agree, again, Harry!

Celia

I loved Molly on Days. But, she is so different from Kirsten….I think this is why fans are somewhat taken aback. Will she live up to the task?
I believe that as an actress, Molly should be able to prove her mettle regardless of the role.

tskyent
tskyent

So happy she is feeling better. She deserves to be happy

Jenny

Wasn’t too impressed with Molly today, but it’s hard to replace another actor. I just hope all this drama with Claudette does not happen till Kirsten is back on! She is the only one that can play this part that will be coming up! Drag this out a little bit, all of us won’t mind

Celia
Celia

Hi, Ces.
Thanks for replying. I don’t see your comment on this board, but I did get it in my inbox.
Lol. Glad you liked my bag comment.
You mention Nick Stabile….oh, yeah, Ces!! My very first comment regarding him was that I had hoped he would take over the role of Nik Cassadine permanently. I was never under the influence of Tyler’s ‘charms’. Never took seed with me.
I say this at the risk of getting backlash, as Tyler is a fan fave. It’s a matter of taste. In his case, not palatable for me.
So, it’s nice to hear you feel the same way about Stabile. The more, the merrier. LOL.

I feel so bad Cuz here I am waiting for them to take her offor to get better and they already had. They look so much alike I kept wondering maybe there going to keep her on after all Cuz she got better. I feel so bad I didn’t recognize the two. So sorry too the real Maxie Cuz u are great and I lobe ur character on the show. I’m glad u will be back and hopefully u quint have to leave anymore Cuz u are loved so much. Sorry and thanks. Can’t wait to see u again on the screen.

General Hospital Receives Honor From Ruderman Family Foundation

General Hospital was one of five television shows that has been named and honored by the Ruderman Family Foundation for their accurate depictions of people with disabilities.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the soap received the recognition for the casting of Maysoon Zayid who portrayed Shilohs’s (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) lawyer, Zahra Amir.

Zayid is an actress and disabilities advocate living with cerebral palsy. In addition, Maysoon is also one of America’s first Muslim women comedians.  Zayid said landing on GH was a “lifelong dream,” after finding it difficult to land roles due to her disability.

Along with GH, the foundation’s seal of authentic representation went to: Netflix’s Tales of the City and Raising Dion, and BBC/HBO’s Years and Years and Audience’s Loudermilk, great company for the ABC daytime drama series to be included with.

Jay Ruderman, president of the Ruderman Family Foundation expressed in a statement. “By giving credit where credit is due in Hollywood, we hope to inspire a broader, longer-term, industry-wide sea change when it comes to authentically casting actors of all abilities.”

In addition, Frank Valentini, executive producer of General Hospital stated: “Our goal has always been to provide stories that are authentic and relatable for our viewers. Having the opportunity to welcome Maysoon Zayid onto the show was exciting for us. She is an incredible talent and was a perfect fit to guest-star as Zahra Amir. It takes all kinds of people to tell a story; especially those that are rich and entertaining enough to resonate with our audience.”

Networks To Preempt Daytime Programming For Donald Trump Impeachment Hearing Coverage

Just as your favorite soaps are kicking into high gear for November sweeps next week, comes the news that due to the House public impeachment hearings on President Donald Trump, daytime programming will endure several pre-mptions starting with the first two on Wednesday November 13th and Friday, November 15th.

CBS was the first network to announce their plans for their extensive coverage, and according to the Washington Post all other networks have followed suit.  By this move by the networks it gives the hearing some extra weight and exposure to the American voters and viewing audience.

So far, leading network coverage for CBS will be reportedly anchored by Norah O’Donnell and for ABC George Stephanopoulos.

On Wednesday, the hearings begin at 10am EST, the second is scheduled for Friday beginning at 11am EST.

William Taylor, the U.S. diplomat in the Ukraine, is scheduled to testify Wednesday and on Friday Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, is scheduled to testify.

The networks are expecting big numbers for covering the hearings, as they have in the past for impeachment proceedings and hearings.

No word yet how the soaps plan for you to see the episodes that don’t air at their regularly scheduled times, or if it shifts your soap viewing schedule by several days.
