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.

First let me say,my criticism of the writing,direction of the show notwithstanding,she is a phenomenal comedic actress,she is the real deal,she is worthy of the Emmy next year for this alone….there are still some parts of this show that still captivate me..this is it!!! Congrats to K.. …….

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.

Kim Delaney on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “All They Have To Do Is Ask, and I’m There”

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.

TONIGHT: Kim Delaney Stars in Lifetime’s ‘The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’

Make sure to catch General Hospital and former All My Children and NYPD Blue star, Kim Delaney (Jackie, GH, Ex-Jenny, AMC) tonight on Saturday, February 20th when her highly-anticipated Lifetime movie debuts beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST which marks the cable network’s 400th original movie.

In The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, it tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island.

After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle, Hannibal) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long.

Delaney’s film, executive produced by Deborah Norville, is based off real life-events that transpired in the early 2010’s where the crimes were never solved.

In an interview with 98.1 WOGL Radio’s Glenn Kalina, Delaney shared: “There is hope in the film… but you also want an answer… what happened to all of these girls?  My character just was relentless trying to find her (daughter) or find answers where she was.  They found a bunch of other bodies, and what they learned was that they were all escorts… and then they learned there was a possible serial killer.”

Check out a promo for the movie below.

While only GH remains, viewers still loved seeing many of their favorites perform in the streaming event, ABC Daytime: Back on Broadway, from Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, which featured footage from those events that ran from 2005-2011 in front of a live audience in New York City.

The 2021 online event, which kicked-off on February 11th and streamed for four days, featured new content with daytime favorites including: Susan Lucci, Cameron Mathison, Anthony Geary, Kelly Ripa and more, plus performances from the past benefits, and an original dance performance from Finola Hughes (Anna Devane) on the set of GH.

John Dietrich, who directed each of the ABC Daytime Salutes Broadway Cares concerts, wrote and directed the stream. It was presented in partnership with ABC Owned Television Stations’ websites around the country with support from Good Morning America and The View.

According to Broadway World, in total, the ABC Daytime Back on Broadway event raised $130,565. The streaming total includes a matching donation of $50,000 made by Broadway Cares supporters The Dream Alliance.  Now, when combined with the seven-year run of the annual concerts, the ABC Daytime stars have raised $2,020,565 for Broadway Cares.
