Here is some great news from General Hospital!

Daytime Emmy winner, Lexi Ainsworth (Kristina) is making a return to the ABC daytime drama series.

According to Soap Opera Digest, Lexi will return on-air later this summer.

When we last saw Kristina she left Port Charles with Parker (Ashley Jones).

What will bring Kristina back to PC? Will Parker be far behind, or will she not?

Wait – isn’t Brytni Sarpy also coming back as Valerie? I say that Kristina will return without Parker (which is good) and will explore her prior flirtation with Valerie.

This is exactly what I was thinking, too. Both come back at separate times, but they both pursue something within time.

With Dante gone and the search ongoing for a new Jordan, Valerie might be fulfilling some PCPD duties, as Chase can’t do it all.

Chase hasnt done anything yet!

One can hope. I thought they were a better pairing than Krissy and a woman old enough to be her mother. Even if they were only pretending to be a couple.

Well, in the tradition of Sonny & Carly and Dante & Lulu, I think another Corinthos/Spencer pairing is a Most Unholy idea!

I hope she get to stay longer then 5 minutes, every time they bring back, they put on the back burner instead writing a good story line for her. Chase would be a good match.

Hope Parker is left behind.!!!

Very glad Lexi is back but I wish Ashley Jones would come with her as Parker. It could happen down the road/

And I thought GH couldn’t get any more boring. Apparently I was wrong. Bad acting does win out. Every daytime actor has gotten an Emmy so it’s not a big deal any more.

That’s not true. I don’t think Kristin Storms has won an Emmy and we all love her.

I am proud to include myself as one of the many Pristina fans who have emailed, tweeted, and all out shouted loud and proud that we want Ashley Jones and Lexi Ainsworth on the air, online, and on-screen at General Hospital. These are 2 amazing actresses with too compelling a story to tell from a closet in Oregon. For over 50 years, soap operas have been a source of entertainment and enlightenment especially in regards to real life issues; medical/mental problems, political climates, sexuality, corporate avenues, etc. Now we have the LGBTQ community up in arms for the same amount of coverage and exposure as we’ve expected from many male/female power couples in the past and present. To the powers that be Frank Valentini and Nathan Varni, you’ve made a small gesture in saving whatever faces you have. Care to try your luck and make another one; bring back Ashley Jones WITH Lexi Ainsworth on the air, online, & on-screen at General Hospital.
These 9 months have been hell for a lot of passionate people because of the lack of respect for the soap opera vets, and the countless FV and NV pets/newbies crammed down our throats, and I’d like to think that time has ran out of Frank Valentini and Nathan Varni. But for right now, I’ll take a small victory and finish by saying, ‘My name is Tom Beavin and I am a soap fan.’

Tom, I was not going to respond to this particular Michael Fairman’s blog until I read your thoughtful,insightful and well written response. However, here is my problem with the Parker/Kristina story line. We didn’t see these two fall in love, we didn’t see Kristina crushing on Parker in the college classroom. If we saw it develop and flourish, then maybe, just maybe, we’d be supporting Kristina all the way. But what GH is doing as of late is pushing the PC story plot point ahead of character development. For instance, we meet a beautiful woman named Terry who is a transgender and before we meet her, we are privy to a rapid Sparks Note introduction to her delivered to us by Lizzy, who knew Terry in middle school. We aren’t allowed to get to know Terry before we know that she is in transition. Today, GH had a whole segment devoted to the Me Too movement. Do not get me wrong—I am all for the Me Too movement but using it as a plot device came off as preachy and boring. In fact, I fast forwarded through the whole thing. What I am trying to say is if the writers are going to tackle a PC topic, they must do so in such a way as to put the character first, and this particular plot device later. How to do it? Check out Bianca coming out to her mother Erica on AMC. Or Cindy, telling Stuart, the love of her life, that she has AIDS, To deliver effective story telling which incorporates PC issues of the say, the viewers MUST first care about the characters involved. Otherwise, it will not work.

harry..well said…its why im tuning out once Nelle;s story ends…the late Agnes Nixon would had written the Me2 thing as someting to remember and think about…GH is in a terrible state…too much focus on Parking Lot Peter…

Hopefully they will do exactly that with Valerie and Kristina

Harry, I agree with you re character development.

Beautifully expressed, Harry…..I, especially, love your comparisons to my other favorite soap (AMC), now defunct.

Nothing gets developed anymore Harry! Frank just pushes a social issue to try and get press and then he doesnt follow up on it. However, they did a nice service with the Kiki movement. The words were good and the scenes were shoot with some imagination. Where was Liz?

Holding onto Franco’s leash. I wonder if the poor man gets to go to the restroom alone? At least he was willing to help Jason get Carly away from Dr. Frankenstein, without Liz’s permission. Am not a Carly fan, but no one should have to be subject to what he was doing to her. I was surprised Nurse Ratched didn’t push for a lobotomy, she hates Carly that much.

Thanks everybody! And now I am opening my umbrella. Why, you might ask? Because I am about to say something which is politically incorrect, and and I want shield myself from the incoming rotten tomatoes. Ava talking about her Me Too movement had me laughing. Because with Ava you just know she was on the other side of the Me Too movement. In fact, while Ava was delivering her Me too memories you just gotta know that simultaneously somewhere in America there is a group of men who worked in an art gallery talking about their own Me Too moment. And the star of their Me Too moment? Yes, you got it-Ava Jerome.

No tomatoes here, Harry, rotten….or otherwise!!! You have ably nailed the very essence of that voracious predator of male flesh, Ava Jerome! Just as you aptly called the prior situation, which I also attempted to applaud, echo and expound upon given your previously well-put thoughts. However, my honest critique apparently was deemed not acceptable, even though my view of the storyline and the return of the particular character was strikingly similar to most here and was far more about the who, than the what. Ditto for CeeCee’s “aura” remarks…which were spot on!!!!

The ME TOO movement gets watered down by weak history. Take Les Moonves, 20 years ago he said something that was unacceptable TODAY and all the Libs want his ass! BULLSHIT! Did he drug someone? Rape them? Kill them? NO! Why cause trouble in this mans life? Albeit, a fabulous one, he does have a wife and kids, leave him be!

I’ve never liked Kristina and couldn’t care less if she comes back. You wanna bring someone back, start with Genie Francis.

Agreed

Can’t stand that snippy, snotty Kristina, and hope she leaves Mama Morgan in Oregon. I also didn’t like Valerie before, so guess I’ll be liking her a lot less, when she hooks up with Krissy.

Thanks, Violet. I was beginning to feel very lonely in my dislike of Valerie. I didn’t click with her since day one and the affair with Dante certainly didn’t help endear her to me. Instead of her, how about bringing Brandon Barash back as sexy bad boy Johnny Zacchara. Make him a nice guy now if they have to…it’s working for Julian. Cheers!

Soaphound, they can bring Johnny back any way, shape or form. Love that guy?

That’s pretty much it….in a nutshell!

I thought I was the only one who didn’t care for this character-she’s the female Morgan, a petulant, spoiled brat. NO. THANK. YOU.

Oh dmr, what is it about Sonny’s biological kids..All are self-centered, all are impatient narcissists…where do you think they get it? At least Bryan Craig was a sexy,talented actor whom I occasionally miss. But I don’t miss the character.

There is an old country song that fits these Corinthos kids, which includes Molly, called, Its Hard To Be Humble When You’re Perfect In Every Way.

True but better than snobby Molly!

I also want Genie back! Guess she is still smarting about the many times they have shafted her.

Genie was mentioned today, Soaphound. That’s a good sign, right? I hope so…..Miss that beautiful face a smile!!

If I were Genie, I would not return UNLESS they offered her a contract! Enough of this back and forth bull crap!

Yeah, T…..that’s exactly what needs to be done. Poor Genie probably feels in limbo—-neither here nor there.

Well, hmmm…. I was thinking that maybe Lulu gets in contact with her mother only to discover that Kevin did not visit her in Paris as he claimed. We saw a man in a straight jacket through the bleary, blurry perspective of a overly medicated Carly, who bore a strong semblance to Kevin…or Ryan. Who was that man in a straight jacket?

AMEN!!!!!!

No big deal, I hate her character lol.

I really can’t pin-point the reasoning, Gerry, but I didn’t likevKristina either. I thought dhe had a very negative aura.
I liked the previous portrayer so much!! I don’t remember her name, but she was on when I started watching GH.
She had flair, and a well-defined personality

Not interested in her character-she is as boring as Morgan

All I can say is thank you soap gods! Best news I’ve heard out of GH in a long time!

For Michael’s funeral?

I hope Parker comes back to because I would rather see Valerie with a hot guy.

Valerie and Chase would make one gorgeous couple!

Trevor St. John Announces His Departure from The Young and the Restless

In a shocker, Trevor St. John revealed on Tuesday that he is leaving the cast of The Young and the Restless and his role as Tucker McCall.

The popular actor took to his account on X and in a series of posts said his “thank you’s” and bid farewell to the top-rated soap opera.

St. John shared, “As you well know, Tuckers come and Tuckers go, and so the cycle continues… this Tucker is in his go phase… I thank each and every member of the wonderful cast, the crew, the directors, the producers and production staff, and CBS/Sony for the great experience from day one to the last. I feel so fortunate to have played such a terrific role.”

Trevor continued: “Most importantly, I want to offer my heartfelt gratitude to you the (Y&R) fans. THANK YOU!” Tucker might be gone for the time being, but I’m not going anywhere. I’ve got projects in the works, and if you haven’t seen my film, A Good Enough Day, it’s now available to stream for free on Tubi!”

The news of his exit comes just two years shy of his time on The Young and the Restless.  St. John made his Genoa City debut in September of 2022 as the new Tucker, last played by Days of our Lives, Stephen Nichols (Steve). The role was first played by actor William Russ.

No word from St. John or Y&R as to when his last episode will air on the top-rated soap opera.  In story, Tucker is losing his company to a takeover by Audra and Victor, while Ashley is finally getting help she needs after her personality split.

So, what do you think about Trevor’s departure from Y&R? Comment below.
