    She best be for Sonny or Nathan..
    Sonny and Nathan need a real woman, something new and exciting and great sex.
    They both need some strange..
    I’m ok with her being with either one.

    It would be helpful to know how long she will be staying on, not knowing one can’t really detect who she will be tagged with or what/who she is..

    (( Most likely she’ll be fixing Ava’s face..

    I liked Martina and Sonny. She was hot and could act.

    Oscar’s Mom could be Vanessa Marcil “Brenda”. Or Parker, the English professor.

    How awesome it would be if Brenda (Vanessa) returned!!

    I can’t stand Parker. And Krissie…who has turned out to be beautiful…looks like her daughter. It’s just such an awkward pairing! Even the way Parker talks to her sounds motherly or as a teacher…

    I think this actress coming aboard, who I’m not familiar with, might be a good fit for Parker. If not as her wife, then as a love interest.

    But I do agree, Rose, and StephMcB above, that perhaps she might be Oscar’s mom.

    Still. Why???????????????? Traded Lucy, Mac, Felicia, barely see Kevin and Laura, gave Hayden the boot..only to bring on Parker and this new person.

    They could be good stories, but it’s still sad to have let go or diminished the roles of so many beloved characters in the process.

    Speaking of Parker–why trot her out yet again? More than a little disconcerting to see a teacher with her former student again. Flaunting the lack of balance of power and promoting illicit and illegal behavior in the face of the spate of teacher abuse of their students that has been in the news in recent years–seems so totally inappropriate, at the very least.

    James R. Poissant replied

    Yikes—I hadn’t thought of that one!!!

    Shay replied

    Thank you, Nancy…I’ve already alluded to this obviously unbalanced personal dynamic between these two characters…whether it be that of professor/student or one smacking of Krissie’s “mommy issues” with her pining for someone much more mature than her own years, it’s indeed sick…This plotline fizzled the first time it was attempted and to revisit it now will only invite more criticism.

    Rebecca1 replied

    Well to be fair, Nancy, the teacher/student stories in the news are about underaged students…kids. Kristina was in college when she met Parker so though they seem/look like an odd fit, it’s not illicit or illegal.

    Jimh replied

    There is also rumor Steve Burton’s new character is his father…earlier someone thought Brenda was coming back as his mom…why dont i even care???

    I think she’ll be tied in with Steve Burton’s character. Can’t figure what capacity she’ll have on the canvas but I bet it’ll be good.

    This is bogus! No offense to Korot, who is a great actress but why not keep Rebecca Budig instead! You cannot tell me that there was no more story to tell with Hayden! This is a big disappointment!

    Nothing in this article indicates how long she’ll be around. I’d bet anything that this is NOT a contract role, thus much cheaper.

    Steve replied

    She might have a glorified day part like they gave to Jennifer Bassey and James dePaiva

    Soaphound replied

    I agree, Phil. It borders on insulting to boast about new characters or actors when they’ve let so many good ones go already.

    Max Daddee replied

    Totally agree with Phil and Soaphound; there’s no need to bring her on. Very disappointing to see Rebecca go and a newbie brought in. Good grief, what are these writers thinking. There was so much hype when we were told Hilary B.Smith was joining GH…got alot of people excited and her role all along was intended to last for a few day. Viewers shouldn’t be confused with puppets or fish being thrown bait.

    Phil replied

    Especially when you consider the connections Hayden had to the canvas! Alla Korot is a soap vet, but Budig is also and there was so much more that Hayden could have done. I hope they are not planning on bringing Budig back as Greenlea(sp?) I did not watch AMC and I want Hayden!

    Do we know if it’s just for a few days or longer? This show really doesn’t need any more fringe characters

    Parker’s wife.

    Allan reminds me of an older version of Lexi Ainsworth, so Parker would certainly have a “type”.

    Oh how I loved her as Jenna!! Another World was SO good circa 1990-93! I hope she plays someone connected to others and not some throwaway role. Off the top of my head I can’t think of anyone. Hopefully, she will NOT be involved with Sonny in ANY way whatsoever. But the show is kind of top heavy with women in that age range…Carly, Sam, Liz, Olivia, Ava, etc. Soaps have very little success creating and integrating new characters these days. I will hope for the best as I like her.

    I second that — what a shame to hear they’re hiring yet another newbie while letting a fan favorite go. It’s just so unfair!!

    Amen, Susan. I don’t give a fiddler’s finger about more newbies. Enough already!

    Have a good one, Soaphound.

    Yes! I need more Griffin in my life.

    nancy dillingham replied

    Speaking of Griffin–a bit disgusting to see him with Ava today. TPTB have really failed that character. To have him speak of “grace” to Ava was just as repugnant as seeing Sonny in the chapel invoking the name of God. Ugh! Shivers!
    To have him “succumb” to Ava’s “charms”–just like that! Again, unbelievable and again disgusting.

    I like her. She is pretty. I remember her vaguely from Night Shift. People will bitch that its ANOTHER new character, use Bobbi, Felicia, ect but I’ve given up on “Classic GH”, Frank ruined that dream!

    Reply

    Shay replied

    Not necessarily, Timmmbo….although I am no fan of newbie characters, I can at least applaud the fact that this actress hails from a defunct soap that many of us fondly remember and that its name is not “AMC” or “OLTL,” as is the usual case!!! With all the wonderful daytime dramas that are no longer on the air, the pool of available players from those said shows is practically endless, and as such, it’s refreshing to see that GH has finally found a place for someone who has not been a fixture at ABC for decades on end! Now we can only hope that the character will be worthy of this lovely lady’s talents….

    Timmm replied

    I see your side to. However, I long for the GH characters of yesteryear! SOME of which are currently on the show!

    Shay replied

    Oh, I hear you on that account, Timmmbo….but apparently the showrunners don’t—-no matter how frequently and loudly we send the message! I was actually being a bit pointed in my observation, since it was simply a relief to see someone…anyone…arriving in Port Charles from a different soap “world” (no pun intended….) other than Pine Valley, Llanview, or even Genoa City, for that matter!

    Hey…as long as Alla Korot’s upcoming GH character doesn’t get horribly sucked into the CONSTANT Sonny/Carly foolishness…then I’m good.

    Hey…just saying……….

    Jimmy replied

    Thank you. I resent so much that they killed off Alan because he and Monica should be the matriarch and patriarch of GH, but instead Sonny and Carly have claimed that position because it seems that major story always revolved around them and their horribly dysfunctional relationship.

    Case in point: Sonny promised Carly that he wouldn’t lie to her ever again, and what does he do? Lie about Sam shooting him. The CarSon madness will never end.

    jaybird369 replied

    Jimmy…aw, yeah, man. Sonny is nothing but a pathologically lying, murdering and cowardly LOWLIFE!!!!! Oh…and you’re right…the Sonny/Carly MADNESS will never end!!!!! Beyond sad.

    Have a good one.

    They should a GH drinking game for new characters that are brought in and then disappear very quickly.

    Hopefully her character and story will be short term because GH does not need anymore long-term characters, especially when they recently let Rebecca Budig go just as Hayden was becoming a much more likable, relatable and well-integrated character. We finally got to meet her father and see the character come full-circle with owning up to her past, and now she’s gone – with a terrible “disappearance” twist as an explanation for her absence to boot.

    After news of RB & RWP being fired, who cares? I’m not a big fan of hers. Saw her at a public appearance when she first started on AW. She and Ricky Paul (whatever his last name is) wer bashing Connie Ford, which I thought was in very poor taste. Lost all respect her then and haven’t cared for her since. GH would be better off spending its money elsewhere…like in gett RB & RWP back on the canvass!

    Jillie replied

    So they get rid of RWP and then bring in a new one? Like I said earlier WTH!!! Why did they bring back Palmer? That is one of the most boring storylines I have seen. I loved the pairing of Kiki and Dylan; they made an awesome couple, but no we are going to get Palmer and Kristina shoved down our throats. Watching the 2 of them act together is like watching paint dry!

    Alla Korit is totally playing Susan Morgan (Jason’s Bio Mom) . She is alive and wil eventually fess up to having given birth to triplets (Steve Burton, Roger Howarth, Billy Miller). This will make fireworks with Monica, and reunite susan w/Scotty. All of this might not come out till Feb. but I’m afraid, they are pulling a Dallas stunt. “like Bobby in shower” Steve Burton will be the jason in the bed and Billy Miller will come back later as one of twins. Morgan is the one in the hood, and he made a fist cuz he wants to make Ava pay for what she did to him. Nikolas ain’t coming back yet, remember Spencer can’t return to studio until next summer, (cuz Nickolodeon show). And I predict Billy Miller will leave show by Nov. And thats when the worst news will explode, Jill Farren “killer of soap shows” will come back to exec produce…And she will fire every actress over 40 on the show. And then kill off Monica like she did to Stuart Damon for turning 65.
