Class and grace and one of the best young actresses in Hollywood are just sum of the words we would use to describe the previously Daytime Emmy nominated, Lexi Ainsworth.  Yesterday, the soap world found out that Lexi would not be returning to the role of Kristina Davis when General Hospital brings home Sonny and Alexis’s daughter for summer storylines and beyond.

Lexi took to her Twitter account to share her thoughts on not returning to Port Charles by simply stating, “Thank you guys for all your support but I won’t be reprising the role of Kristina. I loved her but I’ve also loved being free to do film.  I enjoyed meeting Frank Valentini  & I know you will love the new Kristina that he has found.  I learned so much from my GH home & want to grow further.”

Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis), Lexi’s former on-screen mom also tweeted yesterday, “I’ll comment on “new” Kristina after Lexi has commented.  I can tell u that Lexi is cool with it. Waiting for Lexi to tell u herself Lexi’s already got offers 4 many primetime projects.  She didn’t want 2 sign contract. & Kristina contract role. IMO she made right decision.  My sweet and brilliant Lexi has commented with class and dignity. Enough said.  In a few years, I will be begging Lexi for a job in a movie as her grandmother.”

Well she is a Okie girl how could she not be smart! You do know the old saying Fool me once shame on you fool me twice shame on me! I would have had mixed feelings about coming back with the way it was handled and she is young now is the time to branch out. Good Luck!

There we have it, Lexi did not want to come back, and I certainly understand her decision, since she has already moved on, and I wish her much success in her new endeavors. I also wish Lindsey, the new Kristina, much success in her taking over that role. I look forward to the new storylines involving Kristina. It was very nice of Nancy and Lexi to tweet the fans about this – thanks ladies!!!!!!

i love lexi but if GH wanted an actress on contract and lexi didn’t then i can understand the shows decision, but like Nancy, i’m team Lexi and as long as she’s ok with it then as a fan i’ll respect that.

Lexi is a true class act! Unlike TPTB at GH and ABC, she wants to keep her fans in the loop. I applaud her candidness and will be a Lexi fan forever!

I’m glad that there has finally been some resolution to the question of whether or not Kristina (and Lexi) would be back.

I wish Lindsey Morgan all the best but I still won’t be watching. GH has never confirmed that Lexi was even let go (ie fired). I can’t support a show that continues to disrespect its viewers.

I WHOLEHEARTEDLY AGREE WITH NANCY. SHE’LL DO FINE IN HER NEW JOURNEY. SHE’S NOT ONLY A FANTASTIC ACTRESS, BUT, SUCH A CARING YOUNG LADY. SHE’LL GO FAR IN HER FUTURE, AS SHE IS A STRONG ONE. NANCY IS SUCH A WONDERFUL PERSON HERSELF WITH ALL THE SAME REASONING ABOUT LEXI, I’M SURE THAT LEXI KNOWS THAT WE ALL LOVE HER AND WISH HER THE BEST, AND HOPE THAT SHE CAN KEEP IN TOUCH WITH HER FANS ON FB, AS WE WANT TO BE SURE THAT HER JOURNEY IS A HAPPY AND SAFE GIG FOR HER. AS ALWAYS, MARY

Doesn’t sound like she’s moved on or she wouldn’t even be speaking about GH or the recast. It’s not her role anymore she doesn’t need to tweet about it.

Lexi knows her fans wanted to see her back on the show and she was courteous by keeping us updated.

That’s why she tweeted about it.

She’s better off far far away from GH.

Thanks!

Passions fans remember that in story, Kerr’s character Whitney was in a relationship with the character of Chad (Donn Swaby and later, Charles Divins).  Chad was believed to be Whitney’s half-brother, but later it was revealed to not be the case, and the duo ended up tying the knot.

Since Passions, Kerr has been seen on Hawaii Five-0, Westworld, and True Blood to name just a few TV appearances.

So excited to hear that Brook is coming to GH? Who do you think she will play and be involved with in story on the soap? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Lucas Gives Wiley To Michael; While Willow Learns the Devastating Truth

Friday’s episode of General Hospital, brought the highly-emotional moments viewers had been waiting for all-week long; following the year and a half reveal that Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Brad (Parry Shen) engineered a baby switch with Willow’s (Katelyn MacMullen) dead baby, Wiley being passed off as Michael (Chad Duell) and Nelle’s newborn, Jonah, and Jonah being raised by Brad and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) as Wiley.  Now with the truth out, it was time for two of the heaviest beats of the story to be played out.

When Willow comes to at the hospital with Chase (Josh Swickard) by her side, needless to say she is dazed and freaking out that Nelle took Wiley.  Chase tells her he has some things to tell her and it’s not going to be easy to hear. Willow braces herself and then Chase tells her the story of the baby switch and how her baby died a SIDS death while at Brad and Lucas’ and then how the babies were switched.

In a heartbreaking and powerful performance from Katelyn MacMullen (yes, she is our pick for “Power Performance of the Week”), Willow struggles to come to grips with the truth and starts to realize all of Brad’s machinations, as she thinks back to herself how could she do that to her son … to trust him with Brad, only to have the little infant die.  The devastation played by MacMullen, whose Willow, now must realize her baby never lived the full and happy young life she thought, was gut-wrenching.

Meanwhile, in yet another top-notch performance, William deVry (Julian) showed the pain and the need to unburden himself as Julian talks to his sister. Ava (Maura West) and spills what happened.   He goes so far to admit to Ava that he knew what Brad had done. Ava cannot believe he did not go to Sonny (Maurice Benard) right away with this Intel, but Julian just could not do this to his son, Lucas and rip the baby from his arms.  Julian says he will face-off with Sonny and not leave town, if it comes to that.   Ava says they have to come up with a way to silence Brad … before Brad gives up Julian’s part in the whole baby cover-up.

And in yet another masterful performance, we have to give it up to Chloe Lanier.  Who can play Nelle and spin stories and the tears so well, that if you did not know this pathological liar you would think she is telling the truth. When in opposing holding cells at the PCPD, Nelle lays it on about Brad so that the guard can hear them. She blames Brad for being the instigator in the baby switch and taking advantage of her – a distraught new mother, confused and dazed on the route where the baby switch happened.  It works! Brad is moved to a different cell and thinks look very grim for him.  Nelle smiles through her crocodile tears!

Then, in what we all knew had to happen, and even so, was still as heartbreaking as ever; Lucas spends his final moments with Wiley as his father in the kitchen at the Corinthos’ along with Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) and Carly (Laura Wright).  Lucas starts to tell his mother and sister, all the things Wiley needs and likes, such as having a story read to him.  All of this brings the tears as they know Lucas has to give the child back to Michael; who has been robbed of a year and half as the baby’s rightful father.

Michael tells Lucas they will work this out, so Lucas remains a constant in Wiley’s life. He also tells Sonny and Sasha (Sofia Matteson) he feels so badly for Lucas, but they tell him to be happy for this chance to have the son he grieved for.   In the end, a tear-filled Lucas hands Wiley to Michael as everyone watches on in sadness for one father … and joy for the other.  Ryan Carnes was poignant in the scenes; as was Chad Duell.

So, what did you think of the performances from Friday’s GH featuring Katelyn, Ryan, Chad, William, Chloe and Parry? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Michael Blasts Brad As The Truth About Wiley Comes Out

FINALLY! On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, Lucas (Ryan Carnes) memory is jogged just enough that he clearly remembers Brad’s (Parry Shen) shocking words before their car crash; where Brad confessed that Wiley was Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Michael’s (Chad Duell) biological son.

At the Corinthos home, Lucas stands up and announces to Michael that Wiley is actually his believed to be dead son, Jonah. Carly’s (Laura Wright) mouth drops and then she takes over getting to the root of the truth of the baby switch.

Brad is cornered and left with no choice but to fess up. He explains how Wiley died when he was no longer breathing, and how he was driving with him, when he ended up on the route where Nelle left Michael to die in the car he was driving (Michael recalls this bit of Intel in a flashback).

Then, Brad explains how Nelle appeared with her newborn baby and claimed the whole thing was engineered by Nelle …  and how he was so upset and panicked, that he went along with her plan.

Michael lets Brad have it for all of his lies and machinations, and the pain it has inflicted on so many people for over a year and half.  How on earth could he do that? Carly also lays into him.

Meanwhile, Sasha (Sofia Matteson) has urgently called Chase (Josh Swickard), who leaves “Wiley” and Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) behind, and heads to the Corinthos’ where he hears the whole sad truth about the baby switch.

With Chase gone, Nelle goes looking for “Wiley” who is with Willow, and the two get into a major throwdown catfight.  Nelle comes out the victor and goes to get her baby ready to leave town with her son.

So, what did you think of how the truth finally came out?  What did you think of Michael’s tirade on Brad? What do you think will happen next? Comment below.
