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!

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.

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

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.

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’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.

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

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… Read more »

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

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

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.

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

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
Guest
Harry

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

Tammy
Guest
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!

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.

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

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… Read more »

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

Courtney Hope Gets Marriage Advice From Her Y&R Co-Stars Ahead of Her Wedding to GH’s Chad Duell

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.

Please share your well-wishes to Courtney and Chad as they embark on their life together via the comment section below, and let us know what you think of the marital advice given to Hope from the citizens of Genoa City.
