Well, daytime just lost of the most talented young actresses to come down the pike in years!  General Hospital’s Lexi Ainsworth (Kristina) who had been rumored to have been let-go by the show, confirmed tonight via Twitter that yesterday was her last tape day!  The Daytime Emmy nominated actress shared her heartfelt thanks to her fans, and set the record straight.  Here is most of her tweet!

Lexi:  “Sorry it seems that I wasn’t responding I was asked by Jill and again by Mitch the publicist not to say anything, but since it appears to be officially out there I will confirm I shot my last episode at GH yesterday. It’s been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life and I wouldn’t trade one second of it even the not so great parts for all that I’ve learned to prepare me for the next phase of my career. Want to THANK each one of you from the bottom of my heart! Soap fans are the best and I’m so glad to have been part of its legacy.

I wish I could have a tweet fest but believe it or not my landlord told me I had to be out of my apartment by tomorrow. So I’m moving but only to storage since I’m going to be 5 weeks on location for this film, which is another thing I’m so thankful for and wouldn’t have gotten to do this if things hadn’t worked out the way they did.  I promise to tweet to you during my down time. Well, I love you all and I am still rooting for GH to beat the odds because you all deserve to see the talents of all those amazing people for years to come! I want to thank my cast-mates, all the wonderful people in hair/makeup and wardrobe for an amazing last day! Beautiful flowers and balloons, & food but especially the love & support that I feel overwhelm me so with that …Good night but not Good bye ;)”

On-Air On-Soaps wishes Lexi all the best to her new successes, and can’t believe that GH would let her get away or write her off!  Stay tuned!

Just another reason for me to leave this sinking ship of a show. Can’t believe OLTL is leaving the air while GH gets to stay when these are the types of horrid decisions they make.

WAS SHE NOT NOMINATED FOR AN EMMY? Okay, yet another stupid decision. I’m giving this until the end of October and if it doesn’t get any better, I’m done watching. I get more frustrated every day and I thought bringing in a new head writer would fix these problems GUESS NOT.

This is all Jill Farren Phelps’ doing. She has a cookie cutter mold of what teenage girls or female soap characters in general should look like and if you don’t fit into that mold, you’re out, no matter how talented or Emmy worthy you are. She did it to Genie Francis concerning her weight and she’s now done it to Lexi because of her petite frame. I’d love for the fans to make enough noise to at least get that harpy fired once and for all and maybe then, General Hospital will stand a chance to stay on the air… Read more »

So sorry to see this great young actress leave GH. The Ethan/Kristina storyline appeared to be making strides in the right direction. Would have loved to see that romance…a little purity, a little romance would have gone a lo,ng way. I enjoyed watching Kristin mature as well as how her friendship with Ethan was developing slowly into a romance (pehaps). Things move to quick sometimes from meetng someone to sleeping with them without even knowing the person’s last name.

WTF????? I loved her with Ethan – what the hell are they thinking ? Oh yeah, right, I’d forgotten for a little while with Garin ………..they don’t think..sigh, I thought maybe that had changed.

There are times when I realize I might like being free of soaps and their un fan friendly ridiculousness.

Unbelievable………..un effing believable.

SO pissed.

I am beyond disappointed in GH for letting Lexi go. This is the nail in the coffin for me. I don’t plan on watching GH past Lexi’s last air date. I refuse to watch JFP sexpot recast in the part that Lexi originated and made her own. They should be ashamed of themselves!

I’m not sad that she’s leaving. GH is truly F’N up these days. Let her go and do something worthwhile. While they’re at it, let Molly go too. They already let go of Morgan. Let the show concentrate on Michael and in the end, I hope his character gets shot and killed for good.

isn’t it interesting that the NuKate is 10 years YOUNGER than her character and she replaced an actress playing her age (and closer to Maurices)?? NOW they say Lexi’s “too young looking” to play her own age? Seriously a F’up business, imo. If Lexi didn’t have the acting chops I’d get it, but she does.
This show deserves to die.

So incredibly sad. She is better off. I was willing to start watching GH again if Lexi’s Kristina and Nathan Parsons’ Ethan were finally coupled like they should have been.

Now — I hope GH goes down in flames that are visible from space.

ETHINA IS LOVE and TPTB screwed it up horribly.

She should come to Days and be Maggie’s granddaughter. Give Melanie some competition. Need more Hortons.

I just read Nancy Grahns post on Lexi she is from my hometown so I have special feelings where is this gossip that she was not pretty enough or the males on the show felt weird because she was so young? Boys it is called acting but she is a shining star and because I do feel GH is on it’s way out she probably is better off. Just for the record Hilary Swank was fired from Beverly Hills 90210 and she has two oscars on her mantle. Good Luck Lexi my little OKIE!!!!!

That’s what I’m sayin!!! I don’t think the guys are to blame — it’s all JFP.

Lexi is much better off! GH will be cancelled sooner than later! Love you Lexi!!!

She’s so talented, and has great interactions with the cast. I didn’t care for the character to be honest lately but she’s not beyond being taken in a different direction that is more appealing and less desperate. GH needs to keep all it’s actors that we’ve come to know with the show not fire them and put in a bunch of new bee’s.

Will miss you , Lexi. Certainly you are talented enough. Must have been a financial decision. Hope you will move on to bigger and better opportunities.

This was a huge mistake and loss for General Hospital! Lexi Ainsworth is Kristina and no one will be able to replace her. The ratings for the show will continue to go down if they do not bring this talented emmy worthy actress back to the canvas. She has great chemistry with every actor and actress on the show. Her and Nathan were the most exciting story on the show in my opinion and many others opinions. Also the Davis girls was so cute and fun to watch but without Lexi is just dosent work. Lexi as kristina was so… Read more »

You and Ethan were awesome and I’m 57 years old so I’ve watched GH since the 60’s. They are idiots. This new Kristina is hard edged and I am not a happy camper.

Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson Share Disagreement with Each Other Over Vaccine Mandate; Will Continue ‘Stone Cold and the Jackal’ Shows In 2022

On the latest episode of their That’s Awesome podcast with Steve and Bradford, released over the Thanksgiving holiday, General Hospital’s Bradford Anderson (Spinelli) and Steve Burton (Ex-Jason Morgan) took some moments to address how Steve’s decision to not adhere to the ABC and GH Covid-19 vaccine mandate (which caused the two-time Daytime Emmy-winning star to be let go from the show) would affect their live shows, podcasts, content moving forward, as well as if it has caused a riff in their friendship.

When addressing listeners of the podcast, Anderson shared the the two would continue on with their projects, but that he disagreed with Burton’s decision to not follow the GH vaccine mandate.

Bradford expressed: “If you know us, and know are brand, if you will, it’s built on friendships, and like all friends, we have disagreements.  I disagree with Steve’s decision and he knows that. But over are years of friendships, we have had plenty of discussions about this and other topics, and sometimes we agree and sometimes we don’t, but at the end of the day we are still friends.”

Steve added: “We usually don’t get into decisive things on the show.  Look, I have a right to believe in what I want, and you have a right to believe in what you want, and that’s what makes this country great and we have never been about division.”  In addition, Steve was clear that he has not agreed to any interviews at this time on the subject of his exit, and that he is already moving on, sharing: “I am just grateful for my time at General Hospital and the people and the friendships I have made there, especially with the fans.  I have had an incredible life. Listen, I’m OK. I’m at peace. I ‘m moving forward and I am excited about it.  Like I said in my video, when one door closes, multiple doors open, and that’s what happened already.  I’ve gotten a lot of requests for interviews that I don’t want to do, because I don’t want division … that’s the bottom line.”

Look for Anderson and Burton to hit the road in 2022 and continue with their successful Stone Cold and the Jackal live comedy show and appearances.

Steve Burton Confirms His Exit From General Hospital

Steve Burton has spoken and after so much speculation, the two-time Daytime Emmy-winning star has confirmed he is out as General Hospital’s Jason Morgan.

In his post on his Instagram account on Tuesday, Steve shared that he was let go by the ABC daytime drama series due to their vaccine mandate and that even though he applied for medical and religious exemptions those were denied.  Thus, he has to exit his role.

In story, viewers saw on Monday, that Jason is MIA from being under the rubble of the cave that collapsed in Jason’s attempt to apprehend Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his post, Burton shared the following: “I know there has been a lot of rumors and speculations about me and General Hospital and I wanted you to hear it from me, personally. Unfortunately, General Hospital has let me go because of the vaccine mandate. I did apply for my medical and religious exemptions and both of those were denied, which, you know, hurts, but, this is also about personal freedom to me. I don’t think anyone should lose their livelihood over this. But with that being said, you know me. I’ll always be grateful for my time at General Hospital I love it there. I grew up there. I grew up with some of you, so I will always be grateful and I believe when one door closes multiple doors open. That’s always been my perspective, so I am excited to see what the future brings. ”

Steve went on to say, “Maybe one day when these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan. That would be an honor, and if not, I am going to take this amazing experience, move forward and be forever grateful. I have got to say, that I am forever grateful for your love and your support over the years. It means so much to me. Thank you. I don’t know when my last airdate is. It may have aired or it might be tomorrow or the next day. I am not sure. I want you guys to have an awesome Thanksgiving. I know it is hard, maybe, in this type of situation to be thankful or grateful, but we have so many things to be thankful about. Being grateful really is the key. Love you guys.”

The popular actor began his run as GH’s Jason Quartermaine back in 1991. Later in 1995, after a car accident he had a major personality shift and became Jason Morgan. Burton went to Y&R to play Dylan McAvoy for a four-year stint from 2013-2017, before heading back to his home at GH.

A source close to the show told Deadline that Burton’s last tape date was October 27th.

You can watch Steve’s video announcement below on his GH departure.

Ingo Rademacher Wraps His Run as General Hospital’s Jax

During today’s Monday, November 22nd episode of General Hospital, Ingo Rademacher made his exit as Jasper Jacks.

The actor who is out at the ABC daytime drama series for not adhering and disagreeing to the GH and ABC Covid-19 vaccination mandate, saw his character written-out when Jax shared his final scenes with Laura Wright’s Carly and Cynthia Watros’ Nina.

In story, Jax ran into his ex-wife Carly and informed her he was leaving Port Charles immediately to deal with business in Sydney, Australia.  He adds, he is not planning on coming back to town with this sentiment.“I’m kind of on the outs with everyone in Port Charles right now.”

Things are not be left on good terms with the exes, when Carly spouts, “You know, Jax, I thought I made it clear … my life is none of your business.” After some back and forth about their daughter Josslyn (Eden McCoy), Jax says that he is, “Happy to stay out of your life.”

Later, Jax visits Nina at Charlie’s Pub, and warns her to be careful about getting even more deeply involved with Sonny (Maurice Benard), and she deflects that there is anything going on between them, and telling Jax that her and Sonny don’t have a future together.

Rademacher’s Jax is now off the canvas of the series.

So, what did you think of how GH wrote out Jax and Ingo’s exit from the show? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
