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!

I REALLY LOVED LEXI AS KRISTINA. SHE’S A WONDERFUL ACTRESS AND WISH HER THE BEST OF EVERYTHING. ALREADY ENJOYED HER ON PRIMETIME A FEW MONTHS AGO. WISHING HER TO HAVE MORE PRIMETIME WORK, AS SHE IS A DOLLBABY. MISS HER, BUT, IF THAT’S WHAT SHE WANTS TO DO, MAY GOD BLESS HER AND KEEP HER SAFE.

Good for you Lexi! I am glad to know it was your decision, I think that will help some fans accept the new actress. You and Nancy are both class acts and I look forward to seeing your future endeavors. 🙂

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

Lexi is better off not going back to GH.

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!

Jessica Tuck Returns This Week To General Hospital

There will be a Cassandra Pierce sighting in Port Charles, which means one of the best actresses we know, Jessica Tuck, will be back on your screens this week on ABC’s General Hospital.

Tuck, who became soap-famous for her role as Megan on One Life to Live from 1988-1992 and then went on to primetime television roles returns to the canvas as the evil Cassandra, a role she debuted on GH back in 2017.  Viewers last saw her pop during Michael (Chad Duell) and Sasha’s (Sofia Matteson)vacation.

But this time look for Tuck to mix-it up with GH icon Genie Francis (Laura) in some major showdown scenes, when she holds the mayor and Curtis (Donnell Turner) at gunpoint on the Haunted Star.  Will these two be able to get the on-the-run villainess locked up for good? Don’t necessarily count on it.

Of course, a man who both Cassandra and Laura have an interest in bringing down, Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) plays heavy into the story. But will Cassandra do a double-cross of a double-cross? Who else may get a dose of something potentially lethal that she has been concocting?

Jessica told Soap Opera Digest that when she found out she would be working with Genie Francis; “I was like Woo-hoo! Hot diggity!  I mean, like many people, I have been a fan of hers forever and ever and ever.  It was fun to meet the person behind the character I’ve gotten to know.”
