Over the weekend many fans of General Hospital, and long time fans of Kristen Alderson were shocked by the news that the young actress who started her soap career at a very early age at One Life to Live as Starr Manning has decided to step away from her current role of Kiki Jerome on GH!

Tonight, Alderson let her followers know on Twitter that an explanation into her decision to depart the daytime drama is forthcoming when she tweeted “Sending out A TON TON TON of LOVE. Posting a video very very soon to explain everything. A tweet is way too small to show my appreciation.”

Look for Kristen to wrap up her time at GH in the coming weeks, and for fans to get some insight as to why she is stepping away from the role.

So, are you looking forward to watch and hear what Kristen has to say? Comment below!

What is there that needs to be explained?

KiKi was one of the most annoying characters in recent memory and Alderson’s acting is the kind of bad acting you only see in horror and B-movies like “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes” from the 1980’s.

I was thinking that…she could be Hope and play opposite Scott Clifton-Liam again…he played her high school teacher on OLTL and now can play his lover???

I really hope not. I can finally enjoy B&B now that Hope is gone.

Im very curious to hear what she had to say and really hope this is her own decision and one not prompted by the powers that be at GH. Altho I can’t say I blame her. Kiki’s storyline as of late has been diminished to almost nothing so no wonder she wants to leave. I wish her all the best! I had the pleasure of meeting her Chad and her mom and the fan event last year in LA and she’s the nicest person. Actually they all were!! Hope they leave it open in case she decides to come back.… Read more »

Hope they leave her storyline open so she can return if she changes her mind.

She’s a lovely person and fine actor who deserves for 2015 to deliver only the best of everything. I do hope she’ll stick around daytime, which is her home, where her heart truly is and forever will be. Just as they say about the South in Southern boys like me who have moved on to other pastures, so too can it be said of this soap opera favorite: You can take the girl out of daytime but not the daytime out of the girl. She’s still young, obviously restless and bold, beautiful inside and out, with many days of her… Read more »

This young lady has made some awesome strides in her young life. To say I will miss her is putting it mildly, but I wish her well in whatever the future holds for her.

I have mixed feelings here…was hoping Ava named the baby Tiki so she could introduce her daughters as Kiki and Tiki who laer date brothers Micky and Nicky…lol…you need a video to explain everything?…Guess its sooo 21st century…lol…didnt care for Kiki so the character wont be missed…watched K.A. grow up on OLTL…maybe 6 months from now she’ll return as Starr or yet another character if not LAUREN…maybe she moves in with Delia or runs away in horror when she learns she is nutty Ninas offspring…id run away too…lol…K.A. probably wants to try her luck in primetime or simply take a… Read more »

Yes, I am interested in everything she has to say, such as, what direction her life is taking. I miss her already. I was ten when I first started watching OLTL, with Gran. My grandmother actually introduced me to all my soaps, except GH. She did not watch. She still does not….she has her own reservations about the show.
Harry mentioned that Kirsten should take over the ‘Summer’ character at Y&R. That is a great trade-off….if not, I wish the soap gods would deliver us from Abby, by recasting.
Luv-ya, Kristen…best to you, always……my boy loves you, too.

Strangely, I was hoping she and Morgan would get back together and raise Ava’s baby. They have more spark than Kiki and Michael.

Hope she’s branching out to try nighttime or film. Though its not her fault I loved Starr, hated Kiki.

Me too. I will always have a soft spot for Starr, but Kiki was very ill-conceived. Hope KA has great things in her future.

Have watched her grow before our very eyes on OLTL and now GH. I had the pleasure of meeting her and Chad at GHFCW this past summer and wish her well in her future endeavors. They were both so sweet and kind to all the fans. As I told her when we talked about the demise of OLTL – the pain was like losing family and speaking for myself still miss my one life family very much.

I still so shocked over this but i cant wait to see the vid.. I had been wondering why she hasn’t been posting anything about it..esp. when Chad did…I adore her so much..i started watching OLTL as a teen because of her and was so excited when she went to my fav soap..but i cant blame her at all for leaving since they have yet to really ever give Kiki a S/L..the aftermath of Michael& the baby is the most in a very long time..i’m so excited to see where her career goes tho..she is a beautiful kind amazing actress..my… Read more »

While I wish the actress all the best; unfortunately, the character of Lauren Kiki Jerome just did not “take off” so to speak, IMO. Kristen always seemed to be used as “filler” in many storylines, to help try to push the storyline or give the actress some airtime. Maybe she will continue on with her singing career.

She seems like a very sweet person. I liked her on OLTL until Starr had a baby. Then I thought that the actress looked and acted too childlike to handle the storyline or maybe it was just bad writing. She has been working since she was 6 years old! I hope she takes some time off for herself – maybe travel or go to college. She must have missed out on a lot while she was working all of those years. I have trouble understanding how a parent could facilitate a child working full time since the child was 6.… Read more »

Gonna miss you a lot. Been watching you since you started on OLTL. It’s been a long journey and I am glad I got to watch you grow into a beautiful woman and great person. Wish you well on your new journey.

Even though I’m not the biggest Kiki fan around, I am slightly disappointed to see Kristen leave. I believe the character was under used and just never clicked well with the audience. The Kiki character never really had a storyline of her own and always seemed to be involved in everyone else’s business. I strongly believe that if Prospect Park hadn’t made the decision to reboot OLTL, Starr would have blended in well with the rest of the GH characters and probably would have been more accepted then Kiki. With that said, I wish Kristen all the best in the… Read more »

I didn’t watch OLTL, so her coming to GH as Starr was my first time to see Kristen on a regular basis. She’s a good actress, and I liked her as Starr. The character of Kiki never seemed to take off. Wish ABC and Prospect Park could put on their big boy pants and work out their issues, so Todd, John and Starr could return to the roles that people know them as. Especially since PP doesn’t seem to have any intention on doing anything with OLTL anytime soon. But I have a better chance of getting elected president than… Read more »
