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.

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 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 Flips The Switch In Sonny-Centric Episode Featuring Standout Performances

On Monday, in honor of Maurice Benard’s 25th anniversary as Sonny Corinthos on ABC’s General Hospital, the daytime drama took a look at what life would have been like if Sonny had not fallen in to a life of crime and in the mob. The standalone episode featured the return of Dominic Zamprogna as Sonny’s eldest son, Dante.

But in the twist on ‘soap-reality’, Dante was now the ascending mobster in Port Charles, and Sonny was a sergeant in the police department in Brooklyn married to Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCicero).  It all beings when Sonny remembers being 18-years-old and that fatal day when he shot Vincent Marino.  The young Sonny is played by Maurice’s real-life son.   Sonny then dreams of what would have happened to him if he never pulled that trigger.

Sonny is now a by-the-book cop, who visits his son Dante along with Olivia.  When they get there, Dante is now married to Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is his trophy wife.  Dante is working for the Jerome family – enter Julian (William deVry) and Ava (Maura WestO – and we quickly learn that “Jason Smith” is the hit man who works for them.  And, wouldn’t you know?  Seems like Ava and Jason have a “thing” going on … sealed with a kiss.

Now disturbed by his son’s life of crime, Sonny goes to the PCPD to talk to the police commissioner, who is now Anna Devane (Finola Hughes).  In the story, Anna is very inward, depressed, and more.  We find out that her daughter, Robin died of complications from AIDS in the 90’s, in which Anna has never recovered from.   We also learn at the PCPD that Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) is the current District Attorney.

Carly (Laura Wright) enters the scene, and she is still married to A. J. Quartermaine.  Sonny takes a liking to her and vice-versa.  We later learn that Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is back working for the DEA and Dante has gone undercover to bring down the Jeromes; so the entire territory is under his control.

Dante and Sam have a major falling out, as he is excited by the power he will have once he rids the Jeromes out of his business.  Sam has had it. She doesn’t want to dress like this, be his trophy wife, or have this kind of life. When Dante walks out, an upset Sam is alone with Jason, and the two connect.

In the conclusion of the episode, Dante shoots Jason on the pier, a scene which Sonny walks in on.  Sonny and his son struggle for the gun, and once again Dante is shot, just like in the original version of the story years ago, but with the twist of the struggle.  Olivia comes running onto the pier and sees Dante shot, and yells at Sonny the signature line, “You shot your own son!”

CourtesyABC

At the end of the dream, Sony goes back to the mark in time where he decides whether or not to pull the trigger on Marino with Mike (Max Gail) and him looking on at the young version of himself.  In the end, Sonny still pulls the trigger.

The episode featured stand-out performances by: Dominic Zamprogna (how great was it to see him again, and to see him play Dante’s dark side), Maurice Benard (who illustrated the other side of Sonny, more reserved, and delivered a heartbreaking speech as Sonny to Dante about his life being abused, and the choices he made), Kelly Monaco (who showed a woman unhappy with the outward shell she had created and been a part of), and Finola Hughes,who gave us a different look  at what life would have been like for Anna had Robin been taken from her years ago.  Additionally, it was nice to see the entire cast deliver in support of making this episode work in the ‘flip the switch’ sequence of events.

So, what did you think of the Sonny-centric episode? Who was your favorite in it?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
