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.”

We wish Lexi all the best on all her upcoming endeavors and we are sure we will be seeing her on many television and motion pictures projects in the future!

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.

Class act & a bright future.

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. 🙂

I DITTO ON THAT ROBYNNE. SO HAPPY THAT IT WAS HER DECISION. I’M SURE SHE’LL BE JUST FINE, JUST LOOK AT HER AND WATCH HER ACTING, IT’S FANTASTIC.

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 wish lexi all the best in her future endeavors……………………………….
i am so glad that she is letting everyone know that she had the opportunity to came back to gh but she chose not to…..

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

A class act and a very talented actress!!

Lexi I will miss u forever but u have a great future ahead of u. Thanks for giving ur blessing 2 like the other actress

Lexi is better off not going back to GH.

I can’t wait to see her star shine!

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!

LOL!

I’m a HUGE Lexi Ainsworth fan and can’t wait to see her career blossom!

She will be missed on GH but I think she made the right decision to move forward!

Did they really make much of an effort to ask her back?

Happy late bday lexi . i didnt know but i hope my fav had a great day and a good thanksgiving ahead TTFN

happy bday late bday lexi TTFN

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Brook Lynn and Chase’s Wedding Reception Brings a Beatdown for Dex

On Friday’s, May 17th episode of General Hospital, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) and Chase’s (Josh Swickard) wedding reception was the focal point as the touching celebration for the newlyweds got underway.

Sonny (Maurice Benard) was seething over seeing Dex mingle with the guests. With Dex becoming a cop, and ratting him out to Anna, previously Sonny feels betrayed by his former hit man. However, Sonny’s growing paranoia and mental stability is in question, in particular, because he has been off the proper dosage of meds for months now.

Later, when Sonny sees Dex talking with Gio (Giovanni Mazza) about serving in the military, and later chumming it up with Cerullos, he is about to go postal.

Outside the ballroom. Sonny confronts Dex about chatting it up with the Cerullos, who he says are his people. He warns Dex to stay away from his family. Dex says he was invited to the reception.

Next, Sonny calls Dex a snitch, a spy, and lets him know he is “lucky to be breathing.”  Sonny issues Dex a warning to stay away from his family, or he may not be breathing much longer.

As Sonny turns to walk away., Dex grabs him by the arm to try to reason with him and to and say he’s not his enemy. However, Sonny throws a punch. In the pickup, Sonny continues to bloody and beatdown Dex, until Jason (Steve Burton) arrives on the scene and restrains Sonny.

Kristina (Kate Mansi) walks in on the moment. She sees her father is yelling that both Jason and Dex are traitors. Sonny screams that they are both dead and he’s going to put a gun to their heads.

In happy news, Brook Lynn and Chase finally begin their wedding night when they jump onto of their bed in their honeymoon suite. Chase says now they have a great wedding night, which will be followed by a great honeymoon, and that will be followed by their entire life together. They share a kiss.

So, what did you think of Sonny’s explosive words and actions against Dex and Sonny? Will Kristina figure out what is going on with her dad, once and for all? Comment below.

A source informed Soap Opera Digest that stories created by the co-head writing team of  Mulcahey/Korte team will air through mid-summer. However they added “There will be more news to share at a later date as to the composition of the new writing team.”

In addition, eagle-eyed soap fans have seen that in recent episodes former co-head writer, Chris Van Etten has been credited, as he is reportedly a breakdown writer with the show.

Soap Opera Network is reporting that Korte has assumed the head writing duties solely on her own at the moment, while Buzz blog initially reported Mulcahey’s exit.
