Who says the soaps don’t have top notch performances? Well, TV Line each week comes up with their choice for Performer of the Week and this week they chose Katie LeClerc of Switched at Birth for top honor!  HOWEVER, guess who was in the running and made their Honorable Mentions?  None other than the Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones) of General Hospital!  Kirsten was also in good company with another Honorable selection in Jes Macallan of Mistresses!

As for Storms, what a surprise and treat it has been over the last few episodes of the ABC soap to see sisters Maxie and Georgie in scenes together which carried heavy emotional weight for Maxie! 

TV Line related about Kirsten’s performance: “Kirsten Storms delivered a major punch to the gut when her beloved character Maxie was both treated to and haunted by a surprise reunion’ with her late sister Georgie. Through sobs of joy and sorrow, Maxie was forced to face some unpleasant truths about her recent questionable actions (she’s currently carrying her own child, but passing it off as the unborn baby of her best friend), and appeared to come out the other end of the otherworldly visit better for it. Storms turned in a performance that evoked sympathy for her selfish alter ego, no easy feat indeed.”

So what do you think GH fans … did Kirsten knock it out of the park? Did you enjoy the scenes between Maxie and Georgie? Were you surprised?  Share your thoughts … and congrats Kirsten!

Can’t wait to see more scenes with Georgie & Maxie! It was so good seeing her again.Georgie is just there to help her sister. Give her the courage to tell Dante and LuLu that the baby she is carrying is hers ! And that their baby died. Looks like a good chance Spinelli & Maxie will get back together.

I love Kristen Storms as Maxie and she did an excellent performance on the surprise visit of the ghost of her sister, Georgie. I loved the chemistry between them as sisters and hope Georgie will pay more ghostly visits to Maxie on GH!!!!!!

LOVED those scenes and I wish they would bring Georgie back. Maybe Frisco put her in hiding to protect her or one of his enemies took her after making it look like she died. I’d take Georgie any day over Ellie or Sabrina. Much richer character with a great history!

Definitely heartbreaking and wonderful “come to Jesus” scenes with Georgie! Awesome job Kirsten!! I was just waiting for Georgie to say not to worry, because Brit is carrying Dante and Lulu’s baby! so much for wishful thinking

She was excellent!! She had me in tears with Maxie! Hope how soon she and Spin reunite and raise their baby!

It will be a journey for Spin and Maxie to get back together..
Spin has love and is committed to Ellie Trout, and he will not dump her and run to Maxie, Spin would not do that..
Ellie will need to let spin go..

Ellie’s purpose on GH is to be with Spin…
So unless she will be leaving GH, it will be awhile before Spin and Mixie reunite..

If spoilers/rumors are to be believed, Ellie is kidnapped and possibly killed . That def would open the door for a Spixie reunion.

Kirsten did knock it out of the park!!! She is a fantastic actress and I know that those were real tears in her eyes when she saw and talked to Georgie. It was a wonderful episode, and I really enjoyed watching it!!!

I hope Maxie tells Lulu and Dante about the baby being hers and Spenelli’s very soon. I know Lulu and Dante will be devastated, but I think there’s a twist there just waiting to come to light. I think Britt’s baby is actually that second embryo and this will be discovered soon after Maxie tells the truth. Am I close???

Which only begs the question – Why was Georgie killed off the show to begin with?

Clearly Maxie only does well when her sister is around.

I adored the scenes btw Maxie & Georgie. Why, WHY, WHY can’t the writers find a way to bring Georgie back? Such a waste. Another casualty of the incredibly destructive Guza Regime.

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

Courtney Hope Gets Marriage Advice From Her Y&R Co-Stars Ahead of Her Wedding to GH’s Chad Duell

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.

Please share your well-wishes to Courtney and Chad as they embark on their life together via the comment section below, and let us know what you think of the marital advice given to Hope from the citizens of Genoa City.  

You can check out the video below, and then take a look back at our interview with the duo on the red carpet back at the 46th annual Daytime Emmys Awards.
