General Hospital


Lexi Ainsworth and Ashley Jones Written Out At GH, But Is It Permanent?



Pristina fans were in an uproar all last week following key episodes in the love story and same-sex romance of Kristina Corinthos-Davis (Lexi Ainsworth) and Parker Forsyth (Ashley Jones).

In story, the duo decided to head to Oregon after Parker was dismissed by the university and lost her job, and Kristina wanted to leave town with her.  Of course, Alexis’ (Nancy Lee Grahn) disapproval of their relationship didn’t help matters.  According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest, the characters will remain off the canvas for now, and for the foreseeable future.

Interestingly enough, Ashley Jones came back to GH in August to reprise her role, while currently Ainsworth has been filming episodes of TNT’s Major Crimes.  Earlier this year, Lexi Ainsworth also picked up a Daytime Emmy in the Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series category.

Neither Jones or Ainsworth has made any official comment on social media this past week as to their status with GH, and what the future may, or may not, hold.  However, Ashley Jones answered a fans tweet inquiring as to if Parker will be back? She replied: “Time will tell (hopefully sooner than later)…hang tight;)”

So, how do you feel about the Pristina story being written-out? Do you hope Ashley and Lexi return? Comment below!

I am 100% sure they will be back. And that this is due to schedule conflict as Nathan said it. It will be interesting though how will they bring them back. We all hope is for holidays family dinner, somehow? Anyways Pristina fans will continue to support and be loyal to these two characters and story that we love so much!

I don’t want Parker or Kristina written out of General Hospital. Yes, I want Lexi AND Ashley to return to General Hospital. At this point, they are a couple and I want to see them together on the show traversing the landscape as do other “soap” couples. They have a steadily growing global Fan base. What is it going to take for this couple to get equal treatment? Pristina’s love story and budding romance makes for the drama that brought me to watch General Hospital in the first place. This couple has earned the right to have ample screen time and a True Romance, great writing and to be valued for all they bring to the show. Ashley and Lexi both shine in their respective roles and when I see them together as Parker and Kristina, it is magical!

I’m sorry but this story needs to go! The pairing is HORRIBLE. And no, not because theyre lesbians….the pairing just doesnt work…not rootable, no chem, look like mother and daughter

It’s gotten me to the point that i was happy to see them go, and i LOVE Lexi. But just no. You can bring Lexi back but please make it minus parker

totally agree

I totally agree



I totally agree also. Christina played the role better as a straight actress better than a gay one. The story line with Parker is trash. I disagree pairing Val with Christina is extremely horrible. I feel if u are going to play as gay characters u should start off that way. Gh is a well known soap and should already know to cast that way. Drop the Chris and Parker horrible ….


Agreed, Sam. It’s all about the pairing. The ‘blahest’ couple next to Sam and Jason.
I definitely to not mind gay couples on soaps or on any show; not in this day and age. It is their right as human beings…just not these two. No gravitational pull.
Furthermore, bigotry has nothing to do with it, if this is what’s implied. It could have been a straight couple; I would say the same thing….as I say about many straight couples on the soaps I watch. No electricity!!!!
So, please, to those who want to make this about homosexuality on soaps?…..let’s not go there. It’s offensive, at this point. We all have our opinions. But, everyone on these sites is not bigoted, but very respectful on this subject.
Whatever ” equal treatment” means, needs an explanation, with all due respect.
This has nothing to do with sexual preference….that thinking is archaic, in my book……it has all to do with performance. Ashley and Ainsley have failed miserably in the love department.
Let’s try different actresses, if/when they return.

I apologize for confusing Lexi’s name. So sorry!

Thank you, Celia, first for understanding my humour and secondly for explaining it to others. Maybe I should’ve been more direct to begin with though, since it’s a serious subject that doesn’t seem to get a fair deal.

You probably haven’t seen my reply to Kristi because it’s stuck in moderation, but I already explained my stand to her. I would hate to think I caused a rift between posters, especially since I could’ve been more clear to begin with.

As for GH and it’s failures to sustain quality material for the gay community, we can only hope it gets better, and when it does there will be less people who lack a sense of humour.


agree with you, too.

Lexi Ainsworth used to really impress me. Maybe it has been the writing this go round, but she has come across as mean, hostile, judgmental, shrill, annoying, and self centered. I shouldn’t expect anything less from the spawn of Sonny!! However, I thought the writers were going to take a different path, one that is more current. That of a young girl who was bitter from experiences with men, and decided to take a tumble with a woman, but then ultimately get back together with a man. THAT is edgy and topical and controversial. I know many people of both sexes who have “experimented”, realized it wasn’t their thing, and went back to the opposite sex. The character Ashley played came across as a very unappealing older professor who liked to Mack on her young students. I am not upset at all at them being written out. The show is kind of firing right now on a lot of cylinders, and their story was mostly a throwaway afterthought anyway.

Applause, Jovin.

“That of a young girl who was bitter from experiences with men, and decided to take a tumble with a woman, but then ultimately get back together with a man. THAT is edgy and topical and controversial”. I’m not sure whether to laugh or cry at your commentary on these matters. Do you honestly think women who have had bad relationship/s with a man/men just decide on a whim to give lesbianism a whirl? I’m a lesbian with a large, predominantly straight, circle of friends. 80% of these have had at least one bad experience with a man. Many have had several. Never have I heard any of them say, “Oh, you know, I’ll give vagina a try today!” And why on earth would you think doing so would be “edgy and topical and controversial’? If GH had of gone in this direction it would have done nothing more than follow in the footsteps of other TV shows. You know, the TV shows that actually believe lesbians are lesbians because they all have bad relationships with men. I love men. I have a great relationship with my father and brothers, my best friend is male. But despite that, rest assured, I don’t wake up and think, “Oh, I’ve had some bad relationships with women, I might try me some penis”. Bemused!

Well put, Jovin, and thank you for your remarks on my post, too!

I just read all of the comments and one thing folks have not mentioned is that we viewers were not privy to watching Kristina fall for her English professor.
Too often on GH, important events, integral to the story at hand, happen off camera. We saw this with Silas crying on and about his wife Nina, whom we had not even met yet. Maybe if we had been part of the Parker/Kristina story since it’s inception we could be more enthusiastic. I think it might have been interesting to watch Kristina watch her English professor lecture on the great Romantic poets while looking all love lorn. In real life, students often fall in love with literature, and by extension, they fall in love with their professors. This happens. But we viewers should have been involved in the process–watched and felt the romantic and sexual tension before anything happened.
It was written poorly, and I think that is part of the reason why this storyline failed to resonate with viewers.

@ Harry I very much enjoyed reading your post. Although the s/l resonated with me, I can understand why it didn’t for others. Firstly, for the very reason you highlighted. Second, limited screen time. Less than 45 minutes is simply not anywhere near enough time to present a story to the GA. Morgan’s s/l received more air time and he’s dead. Third, haphazard storytelling-some good writing but then some damn awful writing. The s/l needed to move forward from 2016 and it simply didn’t. If the showrunners intend moving forward with this s/l they need to fully commit, otherwise leave the storytelling to showrunners that actually care.

I completely DISagree with both of you. #Pristina are a pair now.

Well, glad this pair IS off the show.

“Mack on young girls”? Just the fact that you would write something so wildly inaccurate shows that your opinion cannot be taken seriously. Parker, with very little screen time, has been played to perfection by Ashley Jones who has been on tv for quite some time.

Well, prepare, because they WILL be back.

What an injustice TPTB have done to whatever plausible story there could have been. So poorly written from beginning to end. Provided no motivation whatsoever for the character Kristina that Lexi plays. And they have written the teacher/professor character so horribly that no one could possibly fathom her motivation either. And no they are written what is “expedient” to allow Lexi to do another part. Fie! And it leave an all-so-familiar bitter taste in my mouth. No thought of the viewer at all–once again. My TV has been on sometimes during GH time slot, but I find myself not caring whether I look at it or not. I do make sure that I watch when Genie Francis is on. She’s the only character I truly care about at the juncture. Not good sign for the show. Viewers can take only so much. 🙁 🙁

Correction: “And NOW they are WRITING . . . “

I disagree with your assessment on the writing for the most part. In 2016, despite limited screen time for Pristina, GH managed to create an organic, richly layered and beautifully crafted love story between two women. The writing was so, so good! The dichotomy between “sense” and “sensibility” is one of the lenses through which their relationship was (and continues to be) explored and, from a personal point of view, I loved every minute of their complicated relationship. It would have been a true testament to their commitment and understanding of a queer woman character had GH continued to explore these characters as both individuals and as a potential couple. Instead, nada!

Fast forward to 2017 and it would be an understatement to assert that the writing and direction has been rather hit and miss. GH’s continued ambivalence to the Pristina relationship is regrettable to say the least. Neither character has been integrated into the canvas, neither are involved in major storylines with other major characters, and their individual story’s exists only within the confines of their relationship. This is reflected in a lack of screen time and a lack of character growth/development. Don’t get me wrong, the chemistry remains and I’m still invested but, despite some lovely scenes and good writing in parts, the repeated dialogue, change in story telling direction (last 4 episodes of their storyline are without question rewrites), fastest lesbian u-haul in the history of television, double standards (Grava love scene and passionate kissing versus no Pristina love scene and cotton wool kissing), etc…have all left a sour taste in my mouth.

General Hospital should seriously get their shit together, or leave the queer character storytelling to others. The actresses deserve better. The fandom deserves better. Queer women deserve better.

I have to say Laura’s bores the heck out of me, too. She adds nothing to the show at this point. Yes, I loved her at one point. But she’s so dour all the time…and I mean all the time…just doesn’t hold my interest when she’s on. I do love Kevin and I think he’s wasted with Laura at this point. (though he’s never on…not sure if that’s his choice or the producer.)

I really wish they’d just focus on Jason’s return at this point and the circle of characters that will be effected by him. Everything else just seems like filler at this point and takes away from the one good story they have going.

Genie Francis is the most versatile actress on soaps. So much talent.
I have admired and loved her since she first joined General Hospital.
I understand your devotion, Nancy.

I also agree with your take on this subject. Regardless of my 50 plus-year- old mentality, I am open minded, not unfavorable to gay storylines. I welcome all subject storylines.
However, I agree with the majority of the viewers.
Ashley and Lexi did not come through as a true couple to me.

Different strokes for different folks.

I agree also

Rebecca, I could not disagree with you more.
Laura is NOT boring, Well, not to me, anyway.
I like her as this lean, mean fighting machine.
However, she deserves her own story.

Harry…I wrote you a response that didn’t post…basically we’ll have to agree to disagree on this. (LOL..we’ve done it before! 😉 I’m just not enjoying Laura this time around. I loved her back in the day…she was the epitome of hearth and home and warmth…the solid foundation for Lucky and Lulu who eventually cracked. Great story lines revolved around her and she brought her A game. But her return, while nice, isn’t the reason I tune in. Her character doesn’t draw me in. I’m much more interested in the two Jasons…I’m loving Anna and Finn, Nina and Valentin, I even enjoy Amy more than Laura because she’s at least fun! (ooooh, I can feel other posters cringe in disbelief as I write that.)

Sigh. Give Laura a good story…have her on more than an occasional day to fret…which is all she seems to do…and maybe I’ll get back into the character. I do love Kevin and he, too, is barely on. So, the momentum is lost. She’s constantly finding excuses not to be with him and when they are together it’s off camera. Just holds no interest for me.

Could change. Everything does…

I totally agree. They definitely look like mother and daughter. It’s also troubling that a college teacher would be sexually involved with a very young student.

Lexi is 24/25 and a graduate student, who has been married and divorced. She’s not an 18 year old freshman. Let her grow up.

To Amimom: She is not a grad student. She was expelled from undergrad studies and dropped out of her PCU courses.

Dr Helen Ruth. Did you watch their scenes? I believe you didn’t. Kristina was aged, as they regularly do, and is a graduate student, or at least was until the she withdrew from business school to be with Parker. Kristina stated it very clearly in recent scenes, not two weeks ago.

Total agree on this one they look like mother and daughter.

Amimon, do you mean Lexi the actress or Kristina the character is 24/25 years old and is a graduate student?
Because if it’s the former, I have to point out that she never received her undergraduate degree. She was expelled and then later dropped out.
In addition to their age differences, I have to point out that Kristina comes off as psychologically damaged. It’s hard not to shake off the feeling that Parker took advantage of the situation using her status as a professor, not to mention th 20 years or so she has on the poor girl.
While I do think Alexis is being ridiculous trying to to interfere, I totally understand why she’d want to.
On a shallow note, I don’t see these two enjoying any kind of chemistry. For me, they’re kind of dull.

They do not look like mother and daughter. Only someone that does not want,to see their story would compare two,consenting adult women in love to incest. They are gorgeous together. Stop with the fetishizing of lesbianism.
It is disrespectful. Do you think Sonny and Emily lookes like father and daughter? Even,if so, ill bet you never put that comment anywhere. Or Morgan and Ava….mother and son? Please spare me.

This is not the dark ages. There’s 14 years difference in age. They’re both consenting adults. Sexual relationship did not commence when teacher/student.

Agree completely

Totally agree

ITA, Sam. I didn’t think any pairing could have less chem, or be more boring, than Michael/Nelle. But somehow Kristina/Parker are worse.

Here I was hoping that Kristina and Parker would get really close and then have Parker’s ex come to Port Charles in the form of Crystal Chappel! I hope Lexie comes back as Kristina! Love her! Otherwise Days could use a new Stephanie Johnson!

Totally agree, looks like mother and daughter….

Agree with Sam’s post. Awkward as heck pairing. They very much looked like a mother and daughter. Yuck!

This^^^^. Part of the reason why I stopped watching the show consistently.

Totally agree!

I have never been a fan of this couple…for ALL the negative reasons listed. It never made sense that a much older woman would be the least bit interested in an extremely immature young girl.
Do NOT bring Parker back.
Bringing Kristina back is fine, but either put her with a woman closer to her own age, or have her decide she likes men after all.

By far the BEST soap country on daytime.. Beautiful actresses with massive chemistry & also telling a wonderful realistic May December relationship story.Hey haters, May December relationships really do exist! Where were you all when there was Sonny & Brenda, Luke & Laura (Laura was a teenager & raped by Luke!…Kris is an adult), Ava & Morgan, Ava & Griffin

If they come back, bring Parker back with an actress much closer to Kristina’s age, please!

I completely agree. Parker way too old and looks like her mother. It’s a terrible storyline and makes no sense. Parker looks like a pedophile with Christina. Yuk!

I was so grateful this storyline is being halted. I have been riveted by Lexi’s acting in the past, but paired with Ashley, she looks like a petulant teenager, not a woman in love. Neither actress is cast right for this storyline. Frankly, they look ridiculous together. It just does not work at all.I have same gender couples as friends of mine. Each couple looks like a plausible couple. Kristina and Parker just don’t. Cut while you can.

In the real world ,teacher would be jailed,no matter she over 18,and it like mother daughter.,at pair her with someone her age,

Haha! In what country? Both are adults! Kristina is a graduate student, not in high school. Parker is a professor in a different department. GH really needs to do better research. It is not against any school policy for teacher student relationship if both are in different departments. Nor would anyone be jailed unless sex between two consenting adults has become a crime and no-one bothered to tell me.

Krisit, you’re right of course. They aren’t breaking any laws.
That said, think how we’d feel if Parker were a man

I doubt it, Sandy. Kristina is not a minor. Two consenting adults….no jail.
However, that’s not even the point, albeit, I do understand the resentment.
I think what turns many off is the homosexuality part of this, which to some makes it sordid.
If that’s the reason, then we need to get off our high horses.
As I said; personally, this couple did not do it for me…and, not because of the gay factor.

Replying “yuk” makes your foolish behavior so evident. Your opinion has no basis in objectivity and therefore is void. I hope they return to Port Charles and stay.

Janet Hernandez, please refer to the dictionary to educate yourself on the term pedophile. Terribly irksome when individuals use a term that is not applicable to a situation. Furthermore, your “yuk” commentary is woeful!.

Rhonda, I’m not sure what you’re implying with the ‘man’ comment? Worse if it was a man? Both should be viewed the same in my opinion. FYI, I would have no issue with a 25 woman and a 40 old man. Nor would I have any issue with a 25 woman and a 40 year old woman. Love is love. Both are consenting adults. There is no impropriety in either relationship.

@Rhonda….If Parker were of the opposite sex, there’s no question misandry would be reigning supreme on this thread. We’d be getting lectured chapter and verse on older men in senior positions who inflict themselves upon innocent young girls…especially in an educational/collegiate setting where the power dynamic is so skewed toward those in authority.

I am 100% sure they will be back. And that this is due to schedule conflict as Nathan said it. It will be interesting though how will they bring them back. We are all hoping is for holidays family dinner. 🙂 Anyways Pristina fans will continue to support and be loyal to these two characters, actresses and story that we love so much.

The age difference happens in real life ..and on General Hospital ..all the time…with heteosexuals..


Dont like the pairing at all.

I agree. No chemistry

I disagree. They have great chemistry.

Agree. I’d love to see her paired with Valerie, it has the added bonus of giving both a little more storyline. It’s the circumstances of Kristina and Parker’s start that I don’t like. She was her teacher and is a lot older.

Kristina and Valerie are friends and will never ever be anything more.

First Lucas and Brad, now Kristina and Parker. What is GH trying to tell us?

Are you suggesting GH is trying to tell us they have too many characters to write for, Alberto?

LOL, 4ever….as usual I did not miss your sarcastic humor. I love you for it. You are a joy to read.
We both know what Alberto means. But, I hope TPTB are not ‘disintegrating’ gay couples because they’re gay. I would not accept that.
It looks that way, though, does it not?
Let’s hope it’s a temporary absence… I said, different actresses, please.
I’d like to see Lucas and Brad back. This couple had that ‘je ne sais quoi factor’…..especially Brad.
He has that comedic ‘thing’ about him without even trying. I don’t know; to me he looks like he has a perpetual smirk on his face….you know, what I mean? It’s like he knows something no one else does. Humor is a quality which should be employed here and there….not just to break the monotony ( Sam, Jason, Michael etc.), but for comic relief. Any drama teacher will tell us that. And all playwrights have exercised this ploy since forever.
Perhaps we will see him soon, especially since a few have intimated he may be related to Oscar? Am I wrong? Is Brad a Wu? Not too well-versed in GH.

Far too many!!

Ridiculous question! You know very well what Alberto is imaging! Given your question, are you suggesting LGBTIQ representation doesn’t matter? Or is it that you simply prefer to have an “ignorance is bliss” policy on such matters? Or perhaps you’re simply stupid and devoid of any emotional intelligence?

With all due respect, Kristi, if you were familiar with 4ever’s writing, you’d know he jests. You are new, yes? I do not recognize your name. I suppose it does take a keen intellect to read between the lines. Ha!!
Now, you may attack me with an arsenal of offensive words, but, we do not insult each other here. Those who have continuously done so, in the past, will eventually suffer backlash.
You dare much by assaulting others’ intelligence. Not nice!!!!!

Both stories terribly written and not believable for one moment. If I were a gay couple, I would find myself screaming louder that any other viewer of these mockeries of any true or real-life similar situation.

You’ll get over it, Celia!

Val and Kris have great friend potential and that is all.

K byeeee!!!!

Hate them and kristina is an immature brat. not sad at all

Love wins. Take your hate elsewhere or at least try to add something of value to the conversation. And name calling says more about you than the fictional character Kristina played by Emmy winner Lexi Ainsworth.

Wth? Can take people not liking the couple so you resort to insulting real people? Newflash! Kristina is NOT REAL. But yes she’s horrid despite lexi being a good actress

Please separate the character Kristina from the actress Lexi.
Kristina is the brat Hannah is referring to not Lexi.

Lexi, not Kristina plays one of the best privileged brats on daytime, that’s why she won.

I never insulted anyone. And I know Kristina is not real thus my original post which says FICTIONAL CHARACTER. See? I can post in ALL CAPS too. (This is a reply to Hannah.) Kristina is a great 3 dimensional character.

Beautiful nuanced performances and phenomenal chemistry. It would be utterly remiss of GH to lose Emmy winner Lexi Ainsworth and Emmy worthy Ashley Jones, and truly heartbreaking for the #Pristina fandom. The storyline should continue, and we believe it will, with a focus on their relationship and character development. Ashley Jones and Lexi Ainsworth deserve better. The fandom deserve better. Queers women deserve better.

I see no nuances in the performances; the actors can’t write their own material, for heaven’s sake. They are “bound” by the lack of substance in the writing they are given. Pity the poor actors! I do!

I wholeheartedly disagree with your assessment of their performances. Conflicted Parker is one hot mess, and confused Kristina desperately trying to navigate her sexuality… well, an Emmy win for this role is testament to how strong her performance really was. Another thing, irrespective of problematic writing, I’ve seen many a performance where actors have shined in roles. Writing most certainly does not dictate performance in all cases. I’ve addressed your criticism on the writing in a reply to your many other negative comments.

My question was meant to be humorous and as a way for Alberto to not shy away from stating the obvious. I think it wouldn’t hurt to say point blank “GH seems to be not caring to write for same-sex couples” just as you seem to go for the jugular. If you see my username and know anything about the storylines on DAYS, including the usage of gay characters, you would realize there was no harm intended with my post. I think it’s good for the soaps to be microcosms of everyday life with fair representation for all.

Yes, we can agree that “GH seems to be not caring to write for same-sex couples” – let’s leave it at that.

In all honesty, i couldnt care less. These are two recurring characters that was a horrible coupling to begin with, theyre cringeworthy to watch together. Dont get me wrong i really love Lexi but if we have to deal with Kristina/Parker to have her, no thanks

I agree, they just look like mother/daughter. Its not right. don’t need her and I think Ashley jones is not so great in that role, and I bet her x wife reported her. Good.

“Cringworthy”: a succinct summary.

Brava !!

Agreed, Shay, if it had been a male professor having an “eye” for a female student, regardless of being of age or not; the backlash would have been ten times worse.
Khristi is right when she says both men and women should be held by the same standard.
However, society does not “spin” on an even keel, does it? No fairness. I truly believe that the double-standard will be here for a looong time.
It will take another two generations to see some balance.

I hope so!!!

Pristina is a beautiful storyline that should continue. We need to see Parker meeting the rest of Kristina’s family. It’s nice to have representation on daytime.

Name ONE way in which this storyline has been “beautiful”! Lol. Of the many adjectives we can use for this, beautiful is not the first in my mind!

LOL Ur hilarious!

two people… found each other… despite the vast “differences” your mind is shut

two consenting adults.

LOVE is beautiful.

I am going to miss this story. I thought .. through all the schmuck that Steve Burton and the Corinthos dullard clan… are

I would at least have this adult story to lean on.

But not that kind of “representation”!

Emily…In what way is their story “beautiful?” I’m seriously curious as to what you find beautiful about it. They’re barely on, they’ve never been a couple, they had one night and they’re constantly discussing if they should be together. Other than that, Parker sounds like she’s talking to a student or a daughter. There’s been no bonding, no shared anything except one night and some flirtations off camera when Kristina was her student. Beautiful was Romeo and Juliet. LOL…Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (they WERE a beautiful thing to watch!). Krissie and Parker? So no.

I thought for sure.. that Shelley and Frank were going to flesh out this story. the one story… that is relevant to the audience… should have played out.

dag! it’s two lesbians who are 15 years apart.

both consenting adults.


i’m saying this mostly @Jovin.

when this story first broke… months ago… it was met with everlasting appeal

Hate to break it to ya haters but they will be back

No hate here…only opinion-minded fans, Shanna. I never use the word….how can I hate someone I do not know?
You and others like the coupling….your right to do so, but you must allow others to express theirs. All good….no hard feelings.
I think many of us, just oject to the way the story was written, and with the fact that this love affair did not generate any simpatia for the performance. My opinion….asked for, and given.

@Francesca Bruno.
Hi, Francesca,
I agree. I love Genie ( Laura). I loved her on Days and Y&R….and, now, I love her on GH.
I hope Kevin proposes again….she looks so happy…at last !!

I don’t like this story at all. Having a teacher and student in a sexual relationship is wrong regardless of the genders. Glad to see the story leave the screen.

You’re right. I am a teacher and the s/l just perpetuates all the sensational, unfortunate stories that have played out on the news. I don’t like it.

They aren’t student and teacher. They never were when they were together. Get the facts correct. Start there.

Really hope to see Kristina and Parker back on General Hospital. Love the chemistry between these two actresses. Lexi Ainsworth and Ashley Jones are incredible together.

They will be back….there’s more story to be told.

Pristina better come back! Fans fought all year to get beautiful, talented Ashley Jones back. GH made an exceptional change in Parker & Ashley brilliantly showed many layers of Parker. This is a realistic S/L. May December relationships are all over! Anyone who is against them b/c of age, are idiots. I’ll send at least 10 friends who have been married 20+years & with age spans 15 yrs or more!! Age is for wine & cheese Not matters of the heart

I have never been one to be the alarmist but after watching how they made Brad a total criminal so that they could conveniently write the couple out and now Parker and Kristina. So in addition to the scandal of them being gay we have to punish them. I’m not surprised. All soaps think they are so progressive when they introduce a gay character. Some soaps just stay away from the topic altogether but most soaps take the plunge and work hard to get the gay characters into the mainstream. Then the midwest reacts and they suddenly have to punish the gay characters. While DAYS gets props for keeping the gay characters in the forefront, they were doing the same thing by having Will have sex with Gabby so they could question the reality of his gayness. Then the reality set in that he was gay. They married him off to Sonny and then BAM they killed him off. He’s coming back now a couple years later. Sonny and Paul were supposed to marry and move into their “happy” life. Of course… they can’t be happy because Will is coming back. Again props for not avoid the reality of who their characters are. Y&R is walking a tightrope with Mariah and Tessa. They are still keeping Tessa with Noah. And Mariah is left wondering if something is wrong with her because she has feelings for a woman. We need to stop making gay characters a victim. Not every gay person struggles with AIDS or wanting to sleep with the opposite sex. Marrying them off is putting them into the heterosexual norm. They are not heterosexual. I’m sorry that this is the truth. They love who they love. No need for shame or denial. Bold/Beautiful took on the transgender story and then just dropped it in the middle of the game. The only show that at least shows their gay characters is DAYS but there is always a serial killer or crazy psychiatrist who wants to change them into the alleged societal norm. How about a story where two women or two men can become a super couple and face issues like alcholism or adultery or adoption or something that every day people face. I know dramas are here for drama. But I would like to see the representation show these gay characters with some sense of inner strength. They are out there. As a gay man myself I am tired of seeing every gay representation, both day time or night time, presented as indecisive or uncertain. There are proud and strong people out there who are not ashamed of who they are. Okay my pulpit service is over…..back to your local programming. Sorry Kristina and Parker are leaving. I guess Steve Burton was upset about gays taking over his air time. LOL – yes that was a joke folks …

Well said Mateo. Soaps need to be held accountable. Excellent post.

And you have every right to be tired of this mockery of a gay relationship. And I agree: let them show a gay couple with inner strength as you say and let them face social issues in a realistic way. I agree with you wholeheartedly.


Excellent post!

Again, Mateo, your “account” and so carefully, well-phrased thoughts, soar!!

Pristina’s fans are sure they’ll be back soon. We love them and will always support them no matter what. Now that they’re finally got together, there are more to tell. Their SL deserves to be continued.

This storyline has been doomed from day one. Had no problem believing Kristina could be gay/bisexual/whatever she’s labeling herself as these days. But the choice of Parker as a girlfriend?? Nope. Krissy has “daddy issues”, not “mommy issues”. Her falling for another female student while away at college would have been more credible.

Hopefully this will be a case of Kristina taking a break while Lexi does her prime time stuff and then she will be back. Don’t really care if Parker comes back or not. I thought Kristina and Valerie were a better match anyway…. even if Valerie still says she’s straight, at the moment.

@Satan…On the contrary, I’ve long maintained that this character has screaming “mommy issues!” Kristina’s choice of Parker as an object of affection clearly demonstrated that she required a far more stable, nurturing and comforting maternal figure than the one she had at home, otherwise she would have been “experimenting” with plenty of ready and willing female collegians that fell within her own peer group had she been so inclined ! Furthermore, from the get-go, I’ve found Krissy’s suddenly shifting proclivities rather perplexing and disingenuous….no one was more boy crazy than the teenaged version, not to mention, the simmering sexpot that was previously portrayed by the alluring Lindsay Morgan….This character had numerous crushes, boyfriends and even a marriage to Trey. Me thinks the showrunners simply wanted this sensational storyline too much and thus, failed to provide the more likely and consistent portrayal of the willful, spoiled and decidedly-heterosexual brat that this character has always been in the past. That consideration, along with the return of Krissy’s frequently surly and immature persona ala Lexi, made this entire scenario a total miss in my book. I’m actually glad to see her departing Port Charles for the time being…whether she ever returns—-be it with or without Parker—-really is beside the point from my perspective…I just hope that if we again see this character, it’s in the form of a less grating and more adult-like recast!

Awesome, articulate, appropriate!!!

The role is Lexi’s so she will not be recast. If you look at the date at Kelly’s vs. the showdown with hwr mother you can see how well Lexi played those contrasting scenes.

Valerie enjoyed playing gay a little too much, IMO. And they look great together

I agree, robbie. I (as I’ve laid claim to on several posts) really did think Valerie would be a good match for Krissie and said so before they even went there.. Unfortunately, they haven’t utilized the beautiful actress who plays Valerie and as such haven’t given her a relationship…I just thought this would be a great way to get her on the canvas and showcase these two actresses with a natural chemistry.

Yes, robbie. They looked so good together and acted so naturally, I almost forgot it was staged for Parker’s benefit.
That’s what I’d like to see. I am not saying to make Valerie gay ( albeit, not a bad idea), but introduce a light-hearted relationship….and then slowly go into the depth of social issues—the struggles gays face etc. I think Parker and Kristina were just slammed into each other too soon. No breathing room.

I agree, Satan. Kristina has always had daddy issues (not “mommy”. the only issues Molly and Kristina had with Alexis was her push to make them excel…her strive for what they saw as perfection) …In terms of love, Kristina felt rejected by Sonny, unloved, second best (as did Morgan) since they both felt they were in the shadow of Michael. Kristina’s issues with Sonny were so emphasized, which is why they showed her going from an abusive relationship with Keifer to an unrequited infatuation with Nathan…and her manipulative cries for attention. So, to suddenly do a complete turnaround was a bit out of the blue…but, still…one that could be believed. Personally, I’d find it much more plausible if she were bi…she was so boy crazy (to negate that part of her seems unrealistic.)

I just can’t stand her with Parker. I’ve never been so turned off by a fictional couple. There’s just nothing about them that works for me…I just fast forward thru them.

I fast forward through most heterosexual couples.

They really need to come back and soon. GH messed up
last year let’s not do it again. #Pristina has chemistry that is on fire. They
are magical together. Honest attraction, connection and chemistry.
Tired of them being treated unfairly when the others get much more screen time.
They should both be on contracts and maybe the fandom wouldn’t be disappointed
again. Age shouldn’t matter to all the haters look at Ava/Griffin, Ava/Morgan, Sonny/Emily
Luke/Laura, Sonny/Brenda. I think you get the HINT.. #Pristina fandom has skyrocketed and
we waited long enough for them to be together ONSCREEN. Ashley and Lexi are nailing every
scene. Bring them back very soon..

Where are those scenes? The ones TPTB have presented have been scant and lacking in any substance whatsoever.

I feel like GH dropped the ball again on this coupling. Definitely want Ashley and Lexi back as Parker and Kristina a/k/a #Pristina. Love is love and as long as both are consenting adults, age doesn’t mean a thing. For those who complain by saying she was Kristina’s professor, nothing happened between them when they were teacher/student.

Storyline needs to go! There is no chemistry between the two.

I don’t understand why GH was pushing this storyline. Brad and Lucas relationship was enough. Parker having a relationship with Kristina was inappropriate. Why couldn’t GH bring back the young man that Kristina had a brief relationship with earlier in the year.

I agree I would rather see Brucas

Helen H, one gay couple was enough? The gay couple that nobody sees? Yes, I can see that representation is plenty enough with Brad and Lucas! Let’s bring back the young man so that EVERY Port Charles resident actually seen in the canvas is heterosexual, and the enough gay couple off the canvas. Settled!

Hannah, why are you agreeing with Helen? The one who is advocating that Brucus is enough, off the canvas, rarely-if ever-seen?

@Hannah…I think many of us would agree we would rather see “Brucas!” They made a much more interesting and enjoyable couple because we were already familiar and engaged with them first as individuals. Lucas was a beloved character born from GH legacy families and his compelling, poignant backstory was one with which longtime viewers were previously apprised, thus no “filling in of the blanks” was required where he was concerned. And Brad? Whilst his initial predatory behavior was admittedly a bit off-putting in the beginning for some of us, he eventually became a fan favorite for his comically sly chicanery in the hospital lab and his sweet, heartwarming friendship with the equally snark-loving Britt. (Bring her back!) By the time these two guys “got together,” we felt a separate affection for each character, so their relationship was one worth championing. On the other hand, there is this highly difficult version of Kristina who has forever been a handful and not easy to love dating way back to her earlier years in Port Charles….whether she was crushing on unsuitable boys, ignoring her schoolwork or just being generally rebellious, she was eminently unlikeable. Returning her character to Port Charles in the form of that same charmless and willful adolescent was a big mistake and served to play into the extremely inequitable appearance between herself and the “older woman,” Parker. Moreover, Krissy’s unappealing, juvenile behavior made many wonder why such a well-educated, worldly woman like this professor would even bother to waste her time and effort on such a silly, sullen little miss who still comes off as a spoiled child despite her supposedly now-adult status. It seems to me the personality traits of each of these characters probably contributed as much of a role in the perception of a “mother-daughter” dynamic between them as did their actual physical looks. When these considerations were combined, they simply made for a very awkward and unconvincing pairing of two people, period.

Pristina left for Eugene, Oregon not Portland,
They will be back…fandom will riot as we’ve waited longer than other fandom for their favorites to return . No fandom has been more disrespected than Pristina… prejudice against same sex & May December relationships

I thought Kristina and Val had way better chemistry than her and Parker– that aside I thought the pairing deserve a shot on screen– so much of hers and Parker’slove story took place off screen while Kristina was away at college Soaps still tend to make gay themes a single story line instead of incorporating gay characters as part of the fabric of the show–

Yes, Mary….weren’t Val and Kristina fun to watch???? Breath of fresh air. Parker is all about doom and gloom. Completely different way of thinking. Her aura s**ks.
Furthermore, at the risk of being labeled ageist, which is soooo redundant, the age difference has everything to do with it.
As Shay so poignantly brought out, Kristina has “mommy issues”, ergo the need to ‘glue’ herself to a mother-figure in Parker.
I find Parker extremely dull, prim and proper which negates her actions, as a teacher.
Again, this has all to do with the writing….it was as different as night and day with Valerie….light, harmless “girl-talk” looking like it could have developed into something else.
I cannot blame those who feel that Kristina and Parker were sent packing because of the gay storyline, albeit the couple brought nothing to the table.

How can Kristina and Val have more chemistry in a few minutes on screen together than Parker and Kristina? It is laughable how people are trying to justify their dislike with fictional information.


Typing something in caps doesn’t mean your comment has credibility.

Seriously! How could you possibly argue these characters added nothing to the GH canvas when you readily admitted, in writing, that you fast forwarded through their storyline? This would be difficult to make a judgement, right?! I also find it remarkable that you fast forwarded “EVERY DAY”! If you actually watched the show, highly implausible, you would have full knowledge that both characters and their storyline were given very limited screen time. 5-10 minutes per week-at best. I repeat: at best! The mind boggles!


….nothing to get over….it’s a soap; I have a sense of humor and a life!!
Go Yankees!!!! Yeah!!

It shouldn’t be that boggling Kristi. I barely ever fast forward and I suddenly find myself doing it through the relentless discussions about Morgan between Sonny and Carly (which I originally defended finding their grief very realistic). Now, they just cut into airtime with redundancy when the much more interesting story is Jason’s return. As for Parker? I fast forward her immediately. I just simply find the storyline boring…and the couple cringe-worthy. Not because of age, not because of gender…they just come off as mother/daughter, teacher/student when they’re together. Their “vibe” is different, their conversations are uninteresting and center mostly (and repeatedly) on whether they should be seen together. When they’re not discussing that they’re discussing Kristina’s schooling or lack thereof. Spending moments of one’s life watching them is the definition of wasting time.

@ Rebecca1 It is indeed mind boggling to comment on something if you’ve fast forwarded through it. If you don’t like the s/l, that’s perfectly fine, but to comment when you’ve not watched hardly makes someone’s opinion valid. That would be like me saying, “I didn’t watch Wonderwoman but it’s shite”, then expecting my opinion to be a true measure. I would expect an intelligent reader to differentiate a valid opinion versus one that is null and void.

Hi Kristi…not so. I and anyone else who fast forwards has obviously watched enough of a particular story to know they don’t like it and have no interest in it. It would follow that the decision to fast forward was made AFTER coming to that conclusion by initially watching the story line in question and seeing enough to know they’re not into it/them.

I can see getting annoyed if you feel that a character (s) represent a life choice that is important to you…and if you feel that these characters in particular are being dismissed because of who/what they represent. As has been mentioned, many are not against a same sex relationship…they’re just not interested in these two, nor am I. As I’ve said, I don’t feel the chemistry or enjoy their time on screen.

Believe me I’ve been quite outspoken against ageism…I abhor it. I am very quick to react to comments about “too old” etc, etc…so I understand feeling strongly about a character (s) that, though fictional, represent a a segment of people in real life. But while there are a handful of viewers who express anger and complete distaste for same sex couples, I think the majority who don’t like this couple just don’t…like this couple! So, it’s not like you saying, “I didn’t watch Wonderwoman but it’s shite…” because we DID watch…and then fast forwarded. And by the same token if you feel they haven’t been on long enough for us to feel that way which prompts some to fast forward, I’d say it’s the same amount of time it took for you and others to like them.

I think they need to let Kristine come back because she is Sonnys daughter. If they choose to pair her with another female partner it needs to be someone closer to her age like 25 just a little bit older instead of 45 or 55. Parker look as if she should be paired with Alexis instead of Kristina. Now Parker and Alexis would make a great storyline Alexis is available!

Amen on the Alexis suggestion….her track record with men is soooo hideously pathetic, perhaps it’s time for a past-midlife shifting of the old sexual gears, eh????

It is so inspiring to see Alexis out of the boudoir for a change.
Let us leave her clothed for a bit.

I was getting pretty tired and disgusted by the character’s behaviour. I am glad she’s out of that hole.

Changing a male bed partner to female may do the trick, Shay.
Can they teach an old dog new tricks?

maybe Alexis is secretly attracted to Parker and thats the real reason she objects Kristina seeing her???

Um, no. Alexis is NOT GAY. Lol. And she will be back with Julian

Alexis is not gay, and she’s gonna be with Julian

Khris, Hannah…of course, you’re right. Alexis is not gay, she doesn’t need to “shift her ‘old’ sexual gears”…just the same Alexis bashing from the same poster. However, if she WERE gay, LOL, as Steelesimmons said, she would look great with Parker! 😉

HaHaHa…..good idea, Steelesimmons. You and Shay ( one of the most colorful descriptive and stellar poster/fan on these sites, LOL) could discuss this issuev from here to kingdom-come…..her favorite subject is Alexis.

I know because it is so hot when your lover holds a knife to your throat. *Eyeroll*

I love Kristina and Parker. I believe their love story is something daytime needs. Love is love. An age doesn’t matter. GH please don’t waste chemistry or talent. Lexi and Ashley shine and I want to see it. I have no doubt they will return. # pristina.

If I hear the name Parker one more time, I think I will scream!! Good riddance!! Pair Kristina with Valerie!!

Parker. Did you say it out loud or in your head and then scream?

It is spiteful comments like yours which keep other posters from expressing their views.
You do not own this site. It is an open forum… the intro states ( paraphrasing)… ” …how do you feel about Pristina being written out?….”
So, why are you objecting to what is asked of us?

I’d rather hear the name Parker than Morgan!

Timmm, Agreed!!!!


More Lucas and Brad, STAT!

I do not care for either one..,

No loss to GH!!

Big loss to GH.

Sorry but they lacked chemistry…Parker was a snooze…Alexis should had an affair with Diane-that would work!!!

60 year old women do not suddenly become lesbians. Alexis likes her partners to be bad anyway

First…i dont think either is 60 yet…and second, i have seen some women come out over 60…it does happen!!!

I agree they lacked chemistry and the acting part not genuine it was very boring to see them as a couple.

I agree

Jim…that is so funny…lol. And EVEN MORE INTRIGUING!!!!! AW, HELL YEAH!!!!!


They were/are a stupid couple..
All they did was have Alexis freakout on them, that was the plot.

Parker and Kristina were never a love story.
The never had a deep heart wrenching connection, they were very bland.

A lesbian cougar and a young cub and still their story was empty.
The age difference was never brought upfront, the old lesbian taking an exploring young inexperienced coming out lesbian under her wing was never explored.
The whole of their story was empty.

Su hath spoken…and, I agree!! You go SuzieQ.

In what universe is late 30’s old? Your homophobia is showing…..

suOOOO…really? an “old” lesbian? Ashley Jones who plays Parker is 41 in real life. Whether she’s that age or a bit younger on the show I don’t know but that is not old unless the person perceiving her is a teenager. I

She’s old ER than Kristina. Yes. That’s not what makes them cringe-worthy to some. I personally think, and feel, it’s because Lexi LOOKS like she’s 12, even though in realtiy a 14 year age gap isn’t unrealistic. If Kristina was played by another 20-something year old actress…say Kelly Thiebaud back…(back in 2012) Kelly was 26 when she appeared on the show…the pairing wouldn’t look or feel odd. So, no…it’s not about a “cougar” or “old” lesbian and Kristina. It’s more a matter of the interaction and appearance which makes them rather uncomfortable to watch. (for some…I realize there are those who like them together.)

This pairing was never going to get any screen time — neither one was a mobster, violent, or integral to supercouple Sonny/Jason.

I am so enjoying these, short, arrow-sharp comments…Jimh, Timmm, Tom, Alan, Jay, 4ever ( did I miss anyone?–mainly the male-species, LOL). To the point, as always, Alan. Bravi, everyone!!

I don’t care about the age thing, the teacher/student thing, or the disapproving mother thing. I looked forward to their storyline and I sincerely want to see more of Parker and Kristina. Hell, why not have some of GH take place in Oregon? Just give us, the people, what we want.

What the hell is the problem with trying to tell this story? It seems the few attempts that were made all got shuffled so we really haven’t gotten far with these characters in the story. Don’t know why there would be any kind of problem because all the shows do it now. Everyone realizes it’s 2017.

You are right, of course, James. At the risk of sounding repetitious, it does seem that gay-stories are truncated at the knee, as it were; too often and too soon.
But, honestly? I really think that most objected, still do, to the pairing, not the story.

Most objected to the pairing, Celia? You mean the homophobic GA? Hate speech is everywhere on social media, particularly rampant on fb. Yes, there is some ageism commentary, yours included, I note in one of your posts you consider the age factor problematic despite both being consenting adults and willing participants. But what you and other members of the GA fail to recognize is that this pairing is hugely popular. Negativity on twitter (the benchmark of social media) is minute, and Twitter impressions (again, the bench mark of social media), from every corner of the world, across a 4hr period, are 1 million+ when their storyline is airing. Ratings (the ultimate benchmark) improve astronomically, again when they’re in an episode. Add to that, if the pairing wasn’t popular the s/l would not have been revisited 3 times. Ashley Jones returned due to her own popularity and the popularity of this pairing. She has said as much in interviews. They’ve also consistently polled in the top 5 couples for daytime television. Ashley Jones also consistently polls in the top 5 actresses and Lexi Ainsworth consistently polling in the top 10. There have been problems with the storyline moving forward in 2017 and the lesbians seems of little importance-that’s on GH! But do not confuse this with issues of negativity for this pairing. A little research goes a long way!

Hi, Maya,
Thank you for your reply. I’d like to make clear that I do not participate in Social Media…..I am not on Facebook, I do not have a Twitter account etc. I consider such things “dangerous”.
MF is the only forum to my liking and of which I am a part.
I do not think I have said anything derogatory about the age factor between “Kristina” and “Parker”. What I did say is that age does have a lot to do with it when it comes to generational views. I should have expanded my interpretation.
But, love is love. We cannot help with whom we fall in love. I have said the same about heterosexual couples on soaps. SOAPS: key word here. So, why me? MAYA? Hmmmm.
Yes, most objected to the pairing….this is what I ‘heard’ when reading the comments. Are you telling me how/what to think? LOL….
All I have said was that the pairing did not stir the senses, as it were, for me. It was a ‘dormant’ relationship……stale….no fervor…one night stand and gone the next day, returning with this great love of the ages? C’mon….terrible writing. I believe this is what most here are saying.
no malicious intent here.
Then, of course, there are the gay-bashers and bigots. I am not one of them. …barking up the wrong tree, perhaps?
Not once did I say mother/daughter. You are confusing me with others.
Furthermore, I do not pay attention to statistics concerning homosexuality or heterosexuality—not interested—not my thing. ….just as soap rating-reviews do not interest me. I pay no attention to such….
I do believe that people should live their life as they see fit.
I must have said this a billion times. I am a straight, married woman….and, two of my best friends are gay. These guys have been my friends since grade school….( one of them is godfather to my little boy)…, your “sermon”, LOL, is directed towards the wrong person.
Stay well…..great post. Very informative.

@Celia You consistently preach the need to respect the opinion of others, yet you insult me with sarcasm and suggest I wrote a “sermon”. Like you said to another poster, “You dare much…’. Yes, a little sarcasm in response to yours.

You also imply I am perhaps lumping you with the “gay-bashers and bigots”. If I felt that was the case I would have simply stated it. Full disclosure, I tend to give people the benefit of the doubt, but I do wonder why you feel the need to consistently state in several of your posts that you’re not in this category.

“The age difference has everything to do with it” is what you stated. Enough said.

The main issue I have is that you repeatedly make blanket statements as if they’re fact. You stated, “MF is the only forum to my liking and of which I am a part”. Your opinion is one thing, but you consistently make generalizations as if it applies to “most people”. Most people are not opposed to this s/l. Most people do not believe this pairing lack chemistry. MF (no offense Michael-I love this site), is not exactly rampant with commentary, but even in here there are a diverse range of opinions. There is also clear witten evidence of the popularity of this s/l and this pairing on numerous other major forums. Stepping outside the bubble of MF and exploring social media forums, reading data research (twitter iterations, ratings etc…) would provide you with some further insight. That, of course, is entirely up to you.

Irrespective of anything else, expect to be called out if you continue to make generalizations without any evidence, particularly if there is clear evidence to the contrary.

I don’t think Christina and Parker “left the building” because of a problem telling the story. I just think the majority of viewers aren’t taking to these two as a couple. Of course there’s no way of knowing unless they actually did a survey but even on this site there are many, including me, who find this coupling uncomfortable to watch. And I’m ALWAYS an advocate of individual choice and have no problem with age difference AT ALL…but these two, as written, just seem way off the mark. Perhaps if they’re written differently IF they come back together they’ll win over more of the viewers…but the way they were currently portrayed Parker really DID come off as the teacher…in every way. A kid and her initiation. Maybe if it was done for that purpose alone…as Kristina becomes aware of her attraction and this is her first foray into same sex relationship it would be more palatable. After all, many a boy has had his first experience with an older woman.

But as far as chemistry? It just wasn’t there. I cringed when watching them…as they whirled by in fast forward motion.

For those who say they don’t have chemistry are wrong. I love pristina. No! Don’t bring someone else in as Parker. Ashley and Lexi are perfect for this storyline. I just hope they don’t get rid of it because of haters!

I find the two of them to be a complete snore – no chemistry…no loss.

My parents had an age difference between them they were married for over thirty years my sister and husband had an age difference they were married for over forty years age has nothing to do with love as long as the two are consenting adults who are we to judge. Nathan Varni announced on Twitter that the Pristina storyline is on hold for now while Lexi is filming on Major Crimes after that Parker and Kristina will be back on GH my wife was once my teacher and she is older than me stop the hate love is love don’t we have enough hate in the world with a bigot homophobic idiot in the White House

Definitely want to see this pairing back! Ashley and Lexi are incredibly talented and play their roles with class and sensitivity. This is a very relevant and realistic story line. It resonates with many and should be told! I love GH but sometimes they play to much to the outrageous and unrealistic fantasy stories and not enough real life!
Here’s hoping Parker and Kristina make their way back to Port Charles before Thanksgiving and decide to stay!!

Parker and Kristina’s story is similar to a lot of people. Age is not a factor. You don’t HAVE to be with someone your own age to make it work. Look at a lot of celebrity couples as examples. Pristina does not have to follow some perfectly laid out plan. This is what makes it a soap. The fact that the actresses can convey a paragraph of dialog in one look is real chemistry. Ashley and Lexi have it in spades. They’re both straight, and took on these rolls knowing that they might be hated not for their acting, but for their characters. They feel your love and hate toward them because of their ‘age difference .’ All we ask as fans and those who’ve walked in their shoes, is to not attack the actresses personally.

Great post, Amimom. I appreciate and respect your logic and your explanation without insulting anyone for having a different view from yours. Kudos.

Kudos, Amimom! “The fact that the actresses can convey a paragraph of dialog in one look is real chemistry”. This!

Pristina needs to come back to GH…..ASAP! Lexi and Ashley have such great chemistry and they have such an awesome SL on GH. It needs to continue. Hope they come back and their SL continues right were it left off, soon 🙂 #Pristina

Ashley has been a great addition to GH. A proven soap vet who has more than earned her spot on the canvas. This couple is bringing a global audience to GH via their online YouTube videos. If you want to run a show, you gotta bring in new viewers, and this couple is dong just that. Happy for Lexi that she has the prime time gig, but bring Pristina back ASAP.

No loss…AT ALL!! Over the storyline

Oh, Lord!!

I hope they bring them back. GH is writing about modern drama. Both of these ladies are great actresses,so I hope to see them return!

I am glad GH is writing Kristina and Parker off. Parker was too old for Kristina and she was her teacher. Kristina has always had relationships with men and all of a sudden she’s gay and hooked up with a mom figure? That doesn’t make sense. GH should have had Kristina experiment, enage in some rebellious stuff but instead we got bratty Kristina and mommy Parker. No thank you. This story was poorly cast and poorly written. I’m glad GH is cutting their losses. Now if they’d only do the same thing with Nell!

I did not care for the storyline or the pairing of a young girl with an older woman. It was disturbing to me. I am interested in the Steve Burton return to GH…those segments have my attention. The actor brought me back to the program.

It is disturbing to me that a female is having sex and children with a male that she believes to be someone else because he is an imposter.

Thank goodness! I hope Parker is gone for good. She was awful.

I wouldn’t mind Kristina back someday. But, hopefully, if she comes back, she’s less cruel and mean-spirited. Then GH can pair her with Valerie. Those actresses had chem.

Val and Kris have friendship “chem” in the 3 minutes of screentime they had. Plus, why did Val kiss Kris without even asking. That is very offputting. Parker and Kris had chemistry since day one. Just watch the picnic scene.

I really wish people would stop staying that Parker is to old for kristina age is just a number it doesn’t matter as long as 2 people are happy together that all that matters I really love the hole Parker and Kristina story line and I hope that they come back a Happy couple

LOL…just to clarify there’s a Rebecca and me, Rebecca1. I do agree with you, Rebecca, that age doesn’t matter when it comes to love (as long as both involved are of legal age/consenting adults) however I disagree about this couple. They didn’t work for me, at all. Not once. Would rather see Kristina with Valerie (who, ironically, I mentioned would be a good match for her before the show went there with the “pretend” kiss.) Just thought since they just put Valerie on the back shelf and we haven’t seen much of her that she might come out as bi…

Get some one closer to her age not her teacher for goodness sake, gross me out, but don’t get rid of her,character , this story could help so many people

GH’s Dominic Zamprogna Opens Up on Concerns that Dante Was A-Goner: “There’s Any Number of Ways Comas Can Go”

When Detective Dante Falconeri was shot by a Pikeman henchman, and Jason (Steve Burton) was revealed alive and well, it put actor Dominic Zamprogna in a coma, and a bad one in soap terms, at that. For awhile there, it was touch and go for Dante.

The good news is Dante pulled through and is now back to his old self, and just in time for Dominic Zamprogna’s 15th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, which is June 22nd.

Dominic spoke to Soap Opera Digest on his milestone, and reflected back on the fan response from earlier this year when it may have appeared he was exiting the show for a second time.


Zamprogna shared, “It’s nice to hear you say that people were worried about me – when I went into Frank’s (Valentini, EP, GH) office and he told me I was going into a coma, I started to worry about me (laughs)!”

From working on GH for a decade and a half now, Zamprogna has seen his fair share of comas, and in fact, his then on-screen wife, Lulu Spencer Falconeri was written off the show having never awakened from her coma.

Photo: ABC

“There’s any number of ways comas can go,” said the popular GH star. “People joke, ‘Oh, you’ve got easy work.’ And it’s like, ‘Yeah, as long as it’s an on-screen coma! I don’t want to be in an off-screen coma, because then I’m not on the show!” But honestly, that means the world because we all care what people think about us, you know? And if people are happy to have me around, it feels good, obviously. I’d be lying if I said it didn’t.”

So, are you glad that Dante is still alive and kicking? Did you think the show might write-off Dante after he was shot a few months back? Is it time, as Dominic head towards his 20th anniversary with the soap opera, for the powers-that-be to bring Lulu out of her coma? Should Dante and Sam (Kelly Monaco) eventually tie the knot? Comment below.

General Hospital


You probably needed the hankies during today’s Wednesday, June 19th episode of General Hospital, for it marked the return of fan favorite John J. York to his role as Mac Scorpio.

This was to be York’s first episode back on-screen since he underwent treatment for two blood cancers and revealed his health diagnosis and battle publicly back in September of 2023.

The scenes involving Mac gave viewers all the feels, and it looked as if reality and the soap blurred, especially in York’s scenes with his on-screen children, Maxie (who Max raised) and grandchildren, Georgie, James, and Bailey Louise, and wife, Felicia (Kristina Wagner).


Since Mac was out of town supposedly down in South America helping a ‘friend’, some things have changed, including Spinelli (Bradford Anderson). having moved in with Maxie and the kids, to which Mac does not disapprove.


In the meantime, Cody (Josh Kelly) is a man in conflict when he has second thoughts about not telling Mac he is his biological son.  When James shows up Maxie’s with Cody in tow, he lays his eyes upon the just-arrived-back-in-town Mac. The two share pleasant “hellos.” Later, back at the Quartermaine stables, Cody tells Tracy (Jane Elliot) the long and winding road story of not knowing who is father was for most of his life. Cody shares he finally found his father in Port Charles, but his father doesn’t know he has a son. Tracy thinks Cody now has a chance to re-set some things and should come clean.


Meanwhile, Felicia keeps getting calls from Maxie while she is work at General Hospital and does not pick up. So, Felicia is unaware that her husband is back. Eventually, Felicia arrives at Maxie’s and is in for a big surprise when Mac appears and the two hug and share a kiss.

After the episode aired, and seeing the reaction from GH fans, John J. York took to his account on X. York expressed, “WOW!!! I’m just so humbled by your warm, kind and gracious words as Mac returned to PC! Your support has been monumental! I have a feeling, things are about to get interesting!”

So, what did you think about Mac’s homecoming on GH? Were you touched just seeing John J. York back in action on the ABC soap opera? Comment below.

General Hospital’s Jophielle Love Talks On Violet’s Emotional Scenes with Finn, the Loss of Gregory, and Taylor Swift

During General Hospital’s recent episodes surrounding the death of Gregory Chase (Gregory Harrison), who succumbed to complications from ALS, many in the cast delivered touching performances; including Jophielle Love (Violet).

In story, Violet learns of her grandfather’s passing when she comes home from school and her father, Finn (Michael Easton) sits her down to explain that Gregory passed away in the middle of the night. Violet’s reaction was one of devastation and tears.

Michael Fairman TV caught with Jophielle on the red carpet at the recent 51st annual Daytime Creative Arts and Lifestyle Emmy Award ceremonies, where she was a nominee for Best Original Song for the song she co-wrote, “Shine.” The track was first heard back on a December 2023 episode of the ABC daytime drama series and is currently available on Spotify and other music streaming platforms.

When talking about the departure of Gregory Harrison, and Violet’s reaction to her grandpa’s passing, Love shared, “Well, I was very tired from the taping of the three-day wedding, so I already had the tears in me. I knew that I was always going to see him (Gregory Harrison) in real life, but I was also very, very sad he was leaving the show. He was such a delight to work with.”

When Violet saw how difficult it was for her on-screen dad, Finn, to cope with with the death of Gregory, Love shared, “It’s hard for Violet, but Michael and I, we still see each other and he’s always happy (in real life). But, those scenes were hard. I was comforting him.”

Receiving her first Daytime Emmy nomination as songwriter was a thrill for Jophielle: “Well first of all, I was jumping up and down and Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) came and told me while I was on set. I was just so excited.”

Since pop superstar, Taylor Swift, started at a very young age as a singer and a songwriter, does Love see herself as a mini-Taylor? Jophielle emphatically stated, “I’m a mini Me“.  As to what she thinks of the record-setting Swift’s music, and if she likes her work. Love shared, “Yeah, yeah … so, so…”
