Fans of ABC’s hit drama General Hospital will be able to submit questions (#askgh) and receive real-time responses from Kristen Alderson (Starr Manning) who will be up on Twitter  (@krisalderson) during the East Coast broadcast of the show tomorrow, Thursday July 19th from 3:00-4:00 p.m. ET/Noon-1pm PT.

In tomorrow’s episode, it’s a big night for Starr Manning at the grand reopening of the Haunted Star. Todd and Blair (Roger Howarth and Kassie DePaiva) attend together as her proud parents and Starr takes to the stage to perform (“Just Like That” written by Rie Sinclair).  Family, friends and her love of music are not the only things making the evening so special for the young woman who has recently endured so much loss.  Starr is finally ready to find love again and she and Michael (Chad Duell) proudly announce to their friends and family that they are a couple.

So get your questions ready for Kristen and tweet away!

Ugh. All the focus on Starr was one of the reasons I tuned out to OLTL.

She was one of the many reasons I tuned out too. I’m praying that her singing will only be an occasional blip on the show. Now if MamaBlair had sung, I would have enjoyed it!

She is one of the reasons I have tuned out of GH lately. Too much focus on newbies and not enough on our GH actors.

Why????????? I see nothing wrong with Starr…She grew up on OLTL……And I like her character..I think she is very sweet…..If you tuned out on OLTL because of Starr you missed a lot of good stories on OLTL…You missed all the other actors & actresses..By tuning out for just one character…David you missed out on OLTL by doing that….Each character gets a turn to be in the spotlight…They focus on each one of them….As I said each one gets their turn to be in the spotlight…

I DONOT LIKE STARR ON GH. SHE WAS ONE OF THE REASONS I LOST INTEREST IN GH, when the CHANGE and cross overs started. I kept the show on EVEN if I (was not )at home to support the show and the ratings, BUT I am not at home to see it, and have to view it on line. I just didn’t have the burning desire to tune in and see Starr, who was being giving a HELLAVA lot of air time. Personally, I didn’tcare for her on OLTL, but that was her show that she started on and was… Read more »

I can’t understand how one little girl can cause so many people to turn off general hospital, If I felt that way about One person on any show that I watched and stopped watching because of that person it would make no sense, because there are other people living in Port Charles. there have been several people on general hospital over the years that I can’t stand like franco, Lisa niles, all the mobsters, but I kept watching, So what is the problem? Is it because she is from One life to live? I like her I have no problem… Read more »

There have been some brewing issues that you haven’t been involved in on here, so I’m wondering, is everything ok, down in paradise there. Please Advise.
And to answer your question (above) No, I didn’t see the (thread-your wrote) or are you saying threat (not sure) about Erica Kane.

Unless you a Neilson ratings participant with a Neilson rating box, you don’t have to keep your TV on to support ratings. The only ones that count are the participants with boxes. Their data is then transmitted to Neilson. When they say that a show has 2 million viewers, it doesn’t mean that 2 million people are transmitting data to Neilson. It’s only a small number- like 25,000 who are transmitting data. Those 25,000 represents the over 100 million TV sets in the US. It sounds like it doesn’t make sense but it is scientfic. It’s like an IQ score.… Read more »

One of the reasons I believe they brought her on she and her brother were moving to California already and they were looking for a love interest for Michael. I am just glad they kept her as Starr and not brought her on as the new Kristina which had been rumored. I know a lot of people are upset about the crossovers I do not have a problem with that. Over at Y&R MAB has brought faces that were well known from other soaps and made new characters that is a lot more jarring to me. I think her and… Read more »

I love Kristen Alderson and I am pleased they brought her to GH. When OLTL was cancelled I was upset and missed Kristen being on screen. She’s a great actress so long as the writers give her a good storyline! I like some romance thrown in, I get SO sick of the mob storyline! It’ s a soap opera and the viewers I know want to see romance. Bye the way, I do not like the pairings of Molly and TJ or Taylor and Rafe. They should switch them around.

General Hospital Alum Annie Wersching Dead at 45

In very sad news on Sunday, actress Annie Wersching, who starred in the series 24, Bosch and Timeless, and portrayed Amelia Joffe on General Hospital, passed away this morning from cancer.  Annie was only 45-years-0ld.

Deadline broke the news of Annie’s death.  In a statement, Wersching’s husband, actor Stephen Full, shared: “There is a cavernous hole in the soul of this family today. But she left us the tools to fill it. She found wonder in the simplest moment. She didn’t require music to dance. She taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. ‘Go find it. It’s everywhere.’ And find it we shall. As I drove our boys, the true loves of her life, down the winding driveway and street, she would yell BYE! until we were out of earshot and into the world. I can still hear it ringing. Bye my Buddie. ‘I love you little family…’ ”

Wersching’s first major role came as Amelia Joffe on General Hospital.  She played the role from May to September of 2007.  Amelia came to Port Charles to seek revenge on Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) and wound up lovers with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).

Later, she went on to star as Renee Walker in Seasons 7 and 8 of 24.  She also appeared in The Vampire Diaries, Runaways, Extant, and The Rookie.  One of her last roles was in Star Trek: Picard which came two decades after she made her screen acting debut in an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise.

Annie is survived by her husband and children children Freddie, 12; Ozzie, and Archie, 4.

Share your condolences and remembrances for Annie in the comment section.  But first, check out some scenes from her time on General Hospital below.

Kelly Thiebaud Opens Up on Her Exit from General Hospital, Taping Britt’s Tragic Death Scenes, and Parting Thoughts on Co-Stars

Just a few weeks ago on the January 4th episode of General Hospital, viewers were left devastated when Dr. Britt Westbourne succumbed to a fatal poisoning after a confrontation with ‘The Hook’.

While it was revealed that Daytime Emmy winner, Kelly Thiebaud, was exiting the ABC soap opera at the end of 2022, many thought the story would see Britt leaving Port Charles to deal with her declining health due to Huntington’s Disease in private, in order to keep the door open for a possible return down the line.  However, that was not meant to be.  When a report from Deadline surfaced back in August of 2022, it indicated that Kelly was returning to her primetime role on ABC’s Station 19, which caused some confusion and rumors of just what would Thiebaud’s ultimate status be with the daytime drama series.

Now, in a very special exit interview for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Kelly chats with Michael Fairman and clarifies what led to her decision to leave her role as Dr. Britt Westbourne.

Talking with Fairman direct from London, Kelly, who won a Daytime Emmy in 2022 for the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, reveals how it came to pass that GH would kill-off the character of Britt by becoming another victim of ‘The Hook’, and more.

During the conversation, Thiebaud shares her thoughts on working with her former GH co-stars including: Steve Burton (ex-Jason), Parry Shen (Brad), Kirsten Storms (Maxie), Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Cassandra James (Terry), Roger Howarth (Austin) and Josh Kelly (Cody), as well as some of her favorite memories throughout her run on the series which began in 2012.

Kelly took the character from being the manipulative ‘Britch’ as an interloper in the romance of Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Sabrina (Teresa Castillo), all the way to becoming a well-loved character to root for.

While, GH viewers witnessed Britt’s shocking death scenes, Kelly weighs-in on taping those moments, as well as Britt’s emotional goodbye birthday party, and having the opportunity to portray a character who was trying to navigate her life, while suffering from the effects of Huntington’s Disease.

In addition, Thiebaud gives a very special ‘thank you’ and shout out to the fans for their enduring support as she looks forward to new roles and new adventures ahead.

Denise Crosby Makes a Return to General Hospital

After a major fallout with her parents, Carolyn (Denise Crosby) and Jeff Webber (William R. Moses), Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) was devastated, in particular because they concocted a plan to make her forget all about the tragic situation earlier in her life. That being, when Finn’s (Michael Easton) late wife, Reiko, fell down a flight of steps and eventually died after she struggled with Liz.

Apparently, the story is not over, when Denise Crosby reprises her role of Carolyn beginning the week of January 23rd on General Hospital.

Talking about her return in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Crosby previewed, “She (Carolyn) wants to make a connection with her daughter and try to make amends for something that is almost impossible to make amends for. She knows it could go really wrong, but she can’t live with herself if she doesn’t take the shot.”

Something tells us there is more to the story of why Carolyn could have returned to Port Charles? Any thoughts?

Let us know your theories about Elizabeth’s mother upcoming return to Port Charles in the comment section below.
