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.

I like her & her singing…………Everyone gets their turn..They are giving Luke & Heather a lot of attention…Focusing on them a lot also….Everyone gets their turn….. I can’t understand all the complaints about Starr!!!!!!!! (SZima)….I like GH with OLTL crossovers..Because I miss OLTL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No singing from her OR Mama Blair. Blair is better, granted, but NONE good enough!

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 like SHORTY!!!!!!!!!!!

This my opinion…And you have yours…

your right about shorty susan m

Wow Kristen must be a veteran already acting alongside Kassie and Roger. I love my Manning family. Kristen u need 2 convince ur lovley dad Roger aka Todd 2 a) confess to Tea and Sam bout the baby switch b) get mom dad back 2 gather come on Shorty u need 2 do something lol c) Get Roger Howarth on Twitter we love him esp hes crazy ringtone for Heather . Cant wait Love u Kristen

She was the reason I started watching GH again

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 a cast member of. If a person tunes out on GH because of Starr, (here’s the difference) they feel Starr has invaded their space (it’s their fav show/ she’s not a memeber /doesn’t belong). NOW, tuning out on OLTL because of Starr, (was) not really necessary because that was her (environment) WITH….. an expectation as a viewer to see her when we tune(d) in. There was NO expectation to see her on gH. I like the young lady (Kristen), and the character is just ok. As I said long ago, U can find the character of Starr on ANY soaps, (it’s not such a unique character that it needed to be on GH). As far as her singing is concerned, the girl is not the best of singer’s. The only song I like that she sang and sang her heart out was the finale song of OLTL, otherwise the rest were blismal, and I HOPE and PRAY she doesn’t start that singing cramp on gH. Her Mama Blair, I like Blair, but not crazy about her voice either, although its a bit better than Starr’s. It’s Blair/ Kassie’s style, more than the voice that I don’t care for.

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 with her, Is she my favorite from oltl? NO, but it will not make me want to stop watching. Hey 1loveabcsoaps, did you go see that thread about the emmys and Ericka Kane?

No Barb, and I’m just seeing this post. I don’t know HOW I looked over it in my inbox, lol. I have been asking for you. Are you ok? How’s your health? 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. The average IQ score is 100 whether you test 1,000 people or 100 million or 500 million people. You have to get a good representation of the population which is too complicated to get into here but the behavior of a small number of people CAN represent the behavior of large numbers of people.

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 Chad Duell are beginning to click so I don’t see the problem.

I dont see them together and since its business that Buddy cant be there well its just another soap try romance.

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: Alexis Mourns Gregory Then Has a Showdown With Ava

On the Wednesday, May 29th episode of General Hospital, Alexis was having quite the emotional and trying day played to perfection by two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn.

In story, Finn (Michael Easton) stops by to see Alexis, who is reeling from the news of Gregory’s (Gregory Harrison) death. Wanting to talk about Gregory and to be there for Finn, Alexis listens to what happened when Finn found Gregory passed away in his bed. He then admits he drank a third of a bottle of bourbon sent as a gift from the Cerullos as part of Chase (Josh Swickard) and Brook Lynn’s (Amanda Setton) nuptial celebration.

Alexis says it makes sense that he drank, as he just went through a tragic loss and so he had a reason to break his sobriety. He says it doesn’t excuse what he did. Alexis tries to help Finn forgive himself. He knows she suffered a loss and is mourning Gregory, too.  She admits she wanted to drink, but she has not had one. She thinks it might be a two-a-day meeting kind of thing for them for a while. Finn says, he won’t drink again. She says, “For now.” They remain there for each other through their struggles.

Later, Diane (Carolyn Hennesy) comes by and Alexis apologizes to her for not being able to attend the reading of Gregory’s will, but she has a feeling he made her literary executor. Diane sort of confirms it. Alexis says she on her way to visit Ava (Maura West).  She regrets now, not being at Chase and Brook Lynn’s wedding, as she never thought that would be Gregory’s last day on earth.

Armed with what Fergus Bryne (Lane Davies) told her, Alexis heads to Ava’s gallery and accuses Ava of hiring Fergus to get her disbarred. Ava smugly admits she was very happy to watch her life implode after what she did to her late brother, Julian and how she threw him away.

Courtesy/ABC

At that point, Ava clearly tells Alexis she blames her for Julian’s death and that Alexis committed perjury and she has no one else to blame but herself. Alexis fires back that Ava will regret filing that complaint that helped get her disbarred.

It seems like more and more people have a reason to be angry and want payback against Ava? Could it be that Ava will be murdered? Are the rumors floating around that Maura West could be exiting the show possibly true, or is this all just a tease? What did you think of Nancy Lee Grahn’s performance in this episode?

Johnny Wactor’s Co-Worker, Anita Joy, Speaks Out For First Time Since His Fatal Shooting and Saving Her Life

Those who knew Johnny Wactor (ex-Brando Corbin, GH) were well aware of what an upstanding man he was. As tributes poured in when news that the General Hospital alum was shot and killed by one of three car thieves, they all spoke to his qualities as a human being.

Over the first 24 hours since his passing, the public learned Wactor lost his life putting himself in front of a female co-worker when confronted by his assailants, following their shift at a downtown LA bar. The thieves were attempting to steal his catalytic converter from his vehicle.

Now. Wactor’s former co-work, Anita Joy, has spoken out for the first time via her Instagram account of what happened on that fateful morning and her remembrances accompanied by photos and videos with Johnny.  As many now know, Johnny died a hero.

Anita began, “I’ve needed to take some time to collect myself and my thoughts. I was with Johnny in his last moments and I’m here to be his voice after such unimaginable events. His story is in this post as it happened, please swipe through the top photos and read it. Early Saturday morning (May 25) after our bartending shift Friday night at Level 8 in DTLA.”

“He was killed senselessly by a coward who reacted without care of the gorgeous life he was taking,” Joy shared.  So, I’m angry, I’m sad and I’m all of the feelings and once … but above all, I am here for Johnny’s justice. My friend of 8 years went from laughing together, working side by side, leaving our bartending shift and walking to our cars, to him dying in my arms in the street of DTLA in the dark hours of 3am.”

She went on to say, “Everything happened in an instant. I’ve come to describe it as a glass of water that gets tipped over and you’re scrambling to grab it and save it from spilling out completely but it just runs through your fingertips and is gone.” Joy said that she and Wactor, “cautiously approached the men questioning what they were doing, at first thinking the car was being towed.”

“We were no threat and Johnny kept his cool as he always did, simply stating that it was his car and for them to leave. Hands open to his sides in peace, Joy recounted. “Johnny was between me and the man who shot him – as I heard the shot ring into the night, he forcefully tumbled back into my arms as I grabbed for him I shouted, ‘Hunny, you OK?’ And he only responded, ‘Nope! Shot!’ Joy went on to say that she and Johnny “toppled onto the street” where she was trying to hold his body up as she was screaming for help and screaming at Johnny to “stay with me.”

Next, Joy details that a security guard named Bryan ran into the street and phoned 911. Anita wrote, “I’m so thankful for Bryan showing up, trying with all his might to save Johnny. My only peace is that I was him and this didn’t happen to him alone. My other peace will be seeing these awful men brought to justice.”

Speaking on Wactor’s character, Joy added, “Johnny had this incredible ability that was truly just his genuine nature – to make anyone and everyone feel so special in his eyes. No matter how well you knew him, he treated everyone like he truly cared about you. He lit up any room – you couldn’t not smile around him. His energy was magnetic and pulled you in so effortlessly – you were safe with him. He treated everyone with love, respect, compassion and he really ‘saw’ you.”

“He was beautiful, goofy as hell, full of work ethic and values, he never put people down, even when joking, he never made you feel unsure of yourself – he knew how to be hilarious in such a positive way and it just made him that much more lovable. It just filled your heart to be around him,” she recalled.  Johnny made you love him instantly,” Joy added. “Absolutely one of the best men I’ve ever known. I’m so grateful to have been a part of his world and him, mine. My heart is shattered with his loss but I believe l have gained the best guardian Angel out there.  I love you Johnny Wacky.”

Anita then addressed the crime that took Johnny’s life and how Level 8 did not provide parking for its late night shift workers.  Joy explained, “These criminals need to be caught – Level 8 needs to provide parking for their late hour staff as they originally promised- This cannot be something that isn’t responded to with action, it needs to be addressed in a manner to prevent anything like this ever happening again to the best of their ability – Level 8 needs to contribute to Johnny’s family to honor and respect him for all the hard work and effort he did for them.”

Speaking on GoFundMe page that has been set for Wactor, Anita spoke about Johnny’s family, expressing, “They are on the other side of the country and it’s going to be a lot on them emotionally and financially to get Johnny home to them.”

What do you think about Anita’s account of Johnny dying in her arms after shielding her from the thieves who were trying to steal his catalytic converter in his car? Her remembrances of the man she became friends and co-workers with? Comment below.
