Kristen Alderson On Her Final GH Scenes With Roger Howarth: "Roger And I Were VERY Happy We Had Those Scenes Together."

Courtesy/ABC

Monday marked the final episode of Kristen Alderson in the role of Kiki Jerome on General Hospital.   As viewers know, Alderson decided to exit the series and the role will next be played by Hayley Erin.

In her final scenes, Alderson acted with her long-time scene partner, Roger Howarth (Franco). But while Kiki and Franco are not biologically related on GH, when on One Life to Live, and early on during their time on GH, Alderson played Starr Manning, and Howarth was Todd Manning.  This was prior to the Prospect Park lawsuit entanglement.

As a nod to their time when they were on-screen father and daughter, the GH writing team wrote-in that while Franco was still suffering the effects of LSD, he spoke to Kiki as if he was his bio-daughter, and even talked about the difficulties he has had in his relationship with her mother.  But he wasn’t referencing Ava Jerome!   One Life fans know it was Blair he was referencing.

After the scenes aired today Kristen tweeted: “Roger and I were VERY happy we had those scenes together. Thanks @carlivatiron & @valentinifrank #shorty”   She also tweeted:  “Now I think today is really my last air date on @GeneralHospital … Thank you again for all of the overwhelming support & love.”

Ron Carlivati clarified on Twitter that when GH knew Kristen was exiting the show, they wrote-in the scenes between her and Howarth!  The head scribe tweeted: “We rewrote them after we found out Kristen was leaving. Her scenes in this episode were originally with Morgan. #GH

And in a beautiful and emotional moment at the end of the episode which felt like Howarth saying his farewell to Alderson, he said in a speech: “You’ll find something that you love to do and do it. And don’t ever marry a man unless you trust him.  Most importantly, believe in yourself.  I want you to have an OK life.  I think you deserve that.”  Alderson’s Kiki then says, “You don’t have to do this.  I’m not saying goodbye forever.”   To which Roger replies: “Maybe you are.   So just in case  …  goodbye.  You’ve been a gift to me.  I won’t forget you.”   It was Howarth at his best!

What did you think of the scenes between Kristen and Roger?  Were you sad to know this was the final airshow of Kristen’s?   Share your thoughts on the final moments below!

That was indeed a beautifully written and acted scene. It was very bittersweet and a farewell gift to OLTL fans who still miss their show.

I actually did cry, Judy. The dialogue between Roger and Kristen was from the heart. They have shared such closeness as Todd and Starr….such life-lasting friendship, and perhaps as close as a father-daughter relationship two actors working together could possibly share.
It was so sad to see their loving exchange; to hear the affectionate praise for each other. Their mutual respect was palpable…I was moved beyond words. The scene was real and honest ….I was present in the makeshift hospital room.
I feel as if I’m losing a friend…watching Kristen/Kiki standing in that doorway as she bid her ‘last’ farewell to Roger/Franco was so touching, my heart broke.
Bye, Kristen….you will be missed so! Luv-ya, girl. All the best.
I do hope Roger stays for the duration.

Hey, Mr. Fairman? Could you consider installing a “like” button in here similar to the one on Facebook? I don’t want to litter your comment section with a bunch of “I agree Jim!” or “Well said, Shay!” or “You are right on, Rebecca!” comments.
That said, I really like Cee Cee’s post. It’s eloquent and poignant and worthy of the aforementioned scene.

kevin

Yep! I appreciated the multiple levels that the dialogue was reflecting: Franco & Kiki; Todd & Starr; Roger & Kristen. The emotion was genuinely heartfelt, certainly – nice work again, Mr. Howarth. Best wishes following your dreams, Kristen: “Go get ’em, kid!”

I LOVED the scene and it was such a great nod to OLTL. I rewatched it a few times!

deldiva

It was awesome and sooo beautifully delivered from a “father” to his “daughter”, recalling their relationship they had since she was a very, very young girl. It was obvious that RH meant the words even though they were written for him and the tears were genuine. I cried too for it ended a long, long loving relationship between two actors that have spanned the time. And yes, I agree with Magic, I, too, loved that scene/moment and it was an fantastic nod to OLTL.

Because I have watched One Life to Live and General Hospital from inception, I knew those farewell scenes were written for Todd And Starr, and that poignant moment reflected everything I knew about them from the moment she was born to Todd and Blair on One Life to her exit as Kiki Jerome. Howarth is a brilliant actor, in my opinion in line with the likes of Deniro and Brando to name a few. Give him the break he needs and let him shine! Kristen, you will be missed!

Leslie

It was brilliantly written and acted. I watched OLTL for over 40 years and still miss it so much. I so hope that Kristen returns someday. I will miss her.

Shari

Ditto! One of the best Exit Scenes ever! I cried my eyes out watching Todd & “Shorty”

Queenmfb

I know that’s right!

Patricio

It felt in someway a final goodbye to those characters on OLTL. It was we were saying goodbye the the final Cramer woman.

Denise

I teared up watching this scene! I realized that Franco was channeling Todd in these scenes, and I was watching the last scene thru blurry eyes. I watched Kristen grow up from a little girl, have a tv daughter and lose her. She was wonderful as Starr and it’s only the mess with prospect park that turned her into Kiki, which unfortunately never connected with the fans. I will miss this beautiful actress but know she has a wonderful future, and I can’t wait to see her in other things!!

Mrs B
Mrs B

Kristen has been around a long time and is a pro. Maybe it was the name KiKi that just never quite “fit in.”

Shannon B

I was outright crying! Both RH & KA were so good and it reminded me all over again of how much I still miss OLTL. Loved that Rin & crew did that for her

M

I wanted him to say “Go get em’, Shorty” at the end instead! They may have been portraying Franco & Kiki, but we were watching Todd & Starr….& then at some point Todd & Starr became Howarth & Alderson exchanging their goodbyes/best wishes. I loved it. I wish they would have had more screen time together. I cried.

Conni
Conni

Me too!! I was so hoping for that!

Patricio

The Shorty comment would have been great! Roger felt that in the bottom of his soul!
Great comment, M

Beth

Even if he could have said something like “Don’t ever let anyone call you short” to get around any potential difficulties with Prospect Park.

Yes, Yes!

My gut told me that was her final scene. I’m glad the writers did that for Kristen & Roger. It was just really sweet. When she blew him that kiss, I was like, “Even if it’s not her last day, that’s her last moment with him.” It really was so good! Good job Ron & Frank!!

Lynn

I loved that scene! I cried, rewound, re-watched and cried again. So glad RC wrote that in.

This was one of the best scenes and such an emotional one for those of us who go back to the early days of OLTL. What great actors but more importantly, what great friends these two are. I hope whatever she is leaving for is worth it! Loved her ever since OLTL!

Barbara Breen

I loved Franko’s (Todd) & Kiki’s (Starr) scenes together today. I kept thinking about thier many years of history together. Since she was a very little girl. I couldn’t help but have tears in my eyes. Father and daughter for ever.

The writing on this show often frustrates me, but these scenes were gold. They were good if you didn’t know the actor’s back ground but still paid tribute to a relationship that many of us still miss. Kudos Ron and thank you.

You could tell that it was their final scene. It was such a touching tribute to the both of them, their chemistry as father & daughter is evident (One life to live). The small tear out the corner of Roger’s eye was genuine and heart felt, I was sad that I will not see them together in this special way. I’m a long time OLTL fan from when Kristen first came on the scene. I will miss her & wish her the best in her next project. xo

I loved it and I got it. I knew exactly what Ron was doing. It’s his love and genius of soaps that’s gives us the joy of what’s left after the genre’s decimation. It’s time for Vicki and/or Dorian to check in at GH. Maybe as patients or donors to the hospital…something. Everyone else had their moment. Or one stint of Erica Kane…selling something, lol.

Rose

Erica could help Lucy resurrect her cosmetic company. Add a little glamour and humour to a very dreary Lucy and Port Charles.

I watched the scenes with Roger & Kristen. ..thought about it and realized it was a farewell for all of their time together – so I watched it again. I had tears in my eyes. I love those two. I’ll miss them together. I wish Kristen so much success and Roger, please don’t ever leave us! I was thrilled when you came over to GH.

Carole

Never fortunate enough to have children, but I felt the way others are saying they felt about all this. Watching her grow up from a terrific child actor to an even more wonderful young adult actor. It feels like my tv daughter is going off to experience the World. As it should be. I grew to like her as Kiki but yes, she will be Shorty in my heart. The scenes were wonderfully written and acted.

Jeremy

As a GH viewer, I loved this episode with scenes with Kristen and Roger, back in the day, my Grandma would watch OLTL and in the other room, I’d watch AW. Anyways, I really enjoyed the crossover of Blair, Todd and Starr on GH briefly a few years ago, and I was really hoping Kristen’s last scene would be with Roger and, somehow would incorporate the OLTL characters, intertwined into story with Kiki and Franco. Thank you GH for giving Kristen her final scenes with Roger, they were so deep and full of history between this two actors and their working relationship. What a send-off for Kristen. At this moment, I wish the role of Kiki wasn’t being recast.

Patty
Patty

It was fabulous! You could feel the love, warmth and respect between Roger and Kristen. It was obvious, even with Roger’s eyes welling up that he was speaking to Kristen. A wonderful, unforgettable moment! Sad to have Kristen leave after watching her grow up on OLTL, but it usually happens sooner or later. I wish her all the best and I hope to see her back in something soon. It would be wonderful to hear her sing again! She’s beautiful and talented!

Audrey

I will miss Kristin Alderson so much. I watched her on OLTL since she was a tiny little girl and then on GH. I hope Kristin will join GH again one day after she explores other things. She is a wonderful actress!! 🙂 Roger and Kristins last scene today made me feel sad because I knew it was the last time I would see her unless she returns eventually. I dont blame her though, she has been on soaps for many years and she is a young woman. Go get ’em, Kristin!! 😉

Rose Polacek
Rose Polacek

Thank you Roger and Kristen for the walk down memory lane today. I am still saddened by your departure Kristen. I will miss seeing the two of you sharing scenes. Kristen you look so much like my daughter Emma who passed away over 6 years ago. She had the same spunky fire for life that you brought to the roll of Starr and Kiki.
Hopefully today was just saying see you later someday. Maybe Roger and Kirsten can have their own prime time show some day as a father daughter investigation team that would be great. The father daughter chemistry is there to make any show you two would do together a success.

Joe

Kiki and Franco, bah….let’s face it folks, it was Starr and Todd and we love them and miss them. Kudos to the writers and to Alderson and Howarth. All gave the fans, at long last, what we really wanted from them … to have Starr and Todd, if only in parting.

Rose
Rose

It’s too bad there wasn’t a parting like this for OLTL. It’s still unfinished business. Or maybe…we can only hope something will rise out of the ashes. Hope springs eternal, especially if you’ve seen as many come back to life on GH.

Melinda

I agree with you Rose. So much unfinished business and so many storylines left hanging.. Viki and Clint, Tea and Victor, John and Natalie as well as Todd and Blair. To put it bluntly it sucks!

I have watched these scenes twice already. Roger and Kristen did some amazing work in these scenes. These scenes were a great farewell for their fans. I have always loved their onscreen bond these two actors have shared and I will miss seeing them onscreen together.

Done excellently and righteous…

Such a beautiful way to end her time on General Hospital! She couldn’t have left with a better ending!! The two of them together, made an ending that will be remembered forever!! A (on air) father daughter relationship that will last a lifetime (no one will ever be able to replace the love that had for each other on the set of OLTL or GH).

Two wonderfully gifted actors, who have such warmth and friendship between them that we all got to share in it. I will miss Kristen, wish her the best, Roger I hope you stay on GH for a very long time!

I loved the scene at the end of the show today with Franco and Kiki. It brought back the sadness I felt whe One Life to Live went off the air. I knew Kristen Alderson was leaving I just didn’t know when. I could read between the lines though that this either was her last scene with Roger Howarth or her last scene altogether. I wish her good luck I’m whatever she does.

Elizabeth Bongard

As soon as the scene started, all I could think about was Todd and Starr. What a great tribute to both the actors and the characters they portrayed for so many years.
One year when I was at Disney’s Super Soap weekend, I had the opportunity to meet Kristen Alderson when she was very young. She was a joy to meet.. A very humble actress.
I have watched, recorded , read abut GH, since the first episode April 1, 1963 and I’m still a fan. When OLTL started , I became a fan and was very sorry to watch it disappear from our lives. How lucky were to watch not only these two actors but many more..Thanks for the Memories.

Denise

I thought the scenes between Kristen and Roger were so moving and OLTL watchers knew that was Todd and his Shorty up there. Bravo to these two great actors who were blessed to have spent their last scenes together!❤️

Seriously??? I cried like a nany!! I have watched both Todd, franco, (roger howarth), and Starr. Kiki, (Kristin Alderson), since her day one debut!!! I may be 56 yrs old, but I have been watching OLTL and GH since grade school, thanks to my Grandmother Lucy, when I came home from school and I amso happy that I did!!!!! Ple contcontinue actacting Kristin,!!! Wishing you all the Best, but sorely Missed!

I have enjoyed watching Kiki on GH and Roger….watched them on OLTL….and I will follow her on B&B…which I have watched from their beginning…..she will do awesome with the character of Hope….she is really good…..and the scenes between her and Franco were very touching and he is awesome also……she is a precious girl. GH is my all time very favorite soap, I have been watching it since 1965….love most of the actors on that soap…

This was some of the best writing we have seen in a long time and a thoughtful nod to who Kimi and Franco have been to each other. It was good even if you didn’t know the bsck story…but for those of us who did..exquisite! ! And Kristen and Roger were there ever amazing selves!! Thank you to all for a proper finish for these awesome actors!!

I’m getting teary again just reading this. It felt real, not like acting. Too bad there wasn’t a picture of Blair on the table next to the bed. See, Ron! After all the fluke stuff it was good to see you take a time out and write something with substance. Best to Kristen, and thanks to Roger for this moving scene.

Melinda

The scenes were incredible! It was such a gift to those of us still mourning OLTL. I’ve always loved, loved, loved Todd (Roger’s version of Todd) and Starr and how she always brought the best out in him. Good luck to Kristen Alderson on her future endeavors.

Bring ’em on! PP was such a disappointment, not only for dropping the ball on AMC & OLTL but for what they did to the plot lines and characters while they had them. I didn’t watch AMC but, as far as I’m concerned, OLTL ended with its next-to-last episode on ABC. That gave me all the closure I need and, apparently, all we’re going to get.

“…I’m not saying goodbye forever.” To which Roger replies: “Maybe you are. So just in case … goodbye. You’ve been a gift to me.”

The RH and KA scene was gifted! Gifted actors and writing! Not only was it “Todd talking to Starr” it appeared it also was Roger talking to Kristen. It is a difficult departure for those of us who have watched KA grow up. Kristen I know your STAR will continue to shine.
It’s to bad that they (the writers) never took the time to develope “Kiki” maybe KA would have stayed a while longer.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alexis Breaks Three Years of Sobriety, Carly Locks Up Nelle, Nikolas & Liz Continue to Reconnect

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, after downing a drink at a bar, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) held off on a second one, but unfortunately and sadly lost her sobriety of three years.  When she called people in her life to come get her out of the bar and home,  no one was available, so she called none other than her ex Julian (William deVry).

And it was Julian to the rescue, who also took the legal eagle to an AA meeting. The car ride between them was not all pleasant, especially when Alexis went down memory lane for a moment and recalled when Julian held a knife at her throat.  After the fallout with Neil (Joe Flanagan), she wondered why she ruins all her relationships … consistently.

CourtesyABC

Elsewhere. Michael (Chad Duell) is trying to get Nelle (Chloe Lanier) to sign and authorize the heart defect surgery on Wiley.  Michael said they  need both parents signature on the consent forms and Nelle is refusing to sign.  When Carly (Laura Wright) finds out she is ready to handle Nelle and goes up on the hospital rooftop to confront her.   Once there, she tells Nelle this is her chance to get people over to her side by signing the consent to let her son have the surgery he needs.  Carly also tells her that Wiley is her leverage.  If she lets her son die, she has nothing to hold over everybody.  And still, after all of that, Nelle refuses to sign.  So, resourceful Carly locks Nelle in and up on the roof so she can’t leave!  Will Nelle come to her senses for a few seconds and sign the papers?  Previously, Nelle told Michael her kidney surgery basically ruined her life, so she does not want to do the same thing to their son.

Courtesy/ABC

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) is worried about Cameron (William Lipton) and so she sets him up with a therapy session with Neil.  Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) happens by the hospital after getting Ava (Maura West) squared away with Franco (Roger Howarth) for his portrait painting of her in the art room.  He runs into Liz and she shares her concerns for Cameron, and how familiar it is to he,r and how traumatized he must be – having two incidents where he was basically kidnapped within a years time.  She bring up how when she was raped when she was younger that Emily, Lucky and Nikolas were there for her.  Are Nikolas and Liz growing closer again?  Are Ava and Franco?

And … leave it to Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) to get what she wants …. and what she wants is to hit the hay with Julian, after Julian hit her up late after dropping off Alexis.  Is he on the rebound from his car talk with Alexis? Or, is she just so into Britt for some fun?

So, were you upset that Alexis drank? Do you like Britt and Julian hooking-up? Will Carly get Nelle to sign the consent forms  for Wiley’s surgery? And, are you intrigued by a redux of a Liz and Nikolas romance? Comment below.

47th Annual Daytime Emmy Ceremonies Canceled Due To Coronavirus Pandemic

There won’t be any “And the Enmy goes to _” come this June, where NATAS had originally scheduled three nights of award presentations honoring the best in daytime programming at the 47th Annual Daytime Emmys.   The three-day event was slated for June 12-14th, at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena. California.  Deadline broke the story of the decision to postpone daytime’s biggest night, for now.

NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said of today’s decision: “These were extremely difficult decisions to make, but at the end of the day the health and safety of our event attendees and staff must remain our paramount concern,” NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said of today’s decision. “We are closely monitoring public heath authorities’ guidance, seeking feedback from our awards communities, and evaluating the flexibility of our venue and production partners as we plan for the future in this unprecedented context.”

 NATAS chairman Terry O’Reilly said on the change” “Given our concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided that we will not be staging the 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards in Pasadena this coming June.  As there are so many unknowns right now with the flow of information changing on a daily, almost hourly, basis, it would simply be irresponsible to move forward with our annual celebration of excellence in daytime television at this time.”
