86 March 20th, 2016 GENERAL HOSPITAL: Kristina Opens Up About Her Sexuality!

Courtesy/ABC

Last week on Friday’s General Hospital, Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) finally revealed her thoughts on where she is at with her sexuality in a frank conversation with her sister Molly (Hayley Pullos).

It begins when Molly questions Kritina as to when she was planning on telling her parents that she’s gay.  Kristina says she is actually confused and doesn’t know if she is gay, but that she is questioning her sexuality.  She even discusses her bad relationships with her past boyfriends, when it is brought up by Molly.  Kristina thinks she is bisexual, but she worries what Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) will think if they were to find out.  Later, Molly asked Kristina to tell her more about her feelings for Parker (Ashley Jones).  It was clear she is smitten with her professor!  In addition on last Thursday’s episode, Kristina had finally admitted to her parents what happened at college, and how she failed her class and then was suspended, because she came on her professor.

In tears, she says it was a stupid stupid mistake. Sonny does not left her off the hook so easily, and admits he’s disappointed in her, because of the opportunity they gave her, but that he will ensure she gets back into school in the fall.  However, Kristina doesn’t want to go back admitting she feels lost, and she doesn’t know who she, or where she’s headed.   And fast forward to Friday’s episode, Sonny had Max investigating the professor Kristina became involved with thinking it’s a man.  Sonny wants Max to send the guy a message.  He has no idea that Parker is a woman.

In the latest edition of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Lexi Ainsworth related her thoughts on Kristina questioning her sexuality: “General Hospital has always been really great about touching on subjects like this, socially revelant issues, and this is a huge one. Everyone is talking right now about sexuality being fluid, and there are many people who have come out and said that they’re not just attracted to one sex: they’re attracted to who they’re attracted to, whether it be a man, woman, transgender.   It doesn’t matter: love is a universal thing.”

So, do you hope GH makes Kristina bisexual?  Do you hope she will turn out to be  gay?  Do you hope the show explores Parker and Kristina’s relationship?  What did you think of the scenes between Kristina and Molly, and Kristina and Sonny and Alexis on last week’s GH?

    I do not mind about Kristina opening up about her sexuality, I do mind how it is done..
    There is no solid drama, no intense moments, no gripping story, it is lame.
    It is a huge part of a person’s life for her/him to find their true selves and their struggle getting to that point..

    The story is absent of the journey..
    It is rushed, put together as a show piece and not a stable.

    GH is LAME ..

    the horrible breastfeeding story is an embarrassment to people’s intelligence / lame

    the Caisimon story is either a very lame comedy or a complete fail at drama / lame

    Dante and Lulu is a complete boring mess / lame

    Duke’s son entering to do what? be Anna’s new son/whatever is uneventful, no drama, simply thrown together in a hurry with little direction / lame

    Jason and Sam are just for show, no drama no intruge, no anything but a lot of talk and it is lackluster stale / lame

    All the stories are a bundle of not much of anything going nowhere / lame

    If GH does not get new writers that can bring life back to GH, to make it must see intriguing stories, to give us stories that make sense and grab us in, to turn GH back to GH, then GH will fall lower than it can come back from..

    I agree with you 100%. Everyone couldn’t wait to get rid of Carlivati but they made a huge mistake. At least Carlivati kept it interesting and you could see that everything was headed somewhere. They should have just given him a co-writer to ground his stories a bit more, because, towards the end, they were getting a bit bizarre. But there is nothing worse in my mind, then these stories that seem to be going nowhere because the writers haven’t figured out what they want to do. There is character assassination left and right. Is Julian good or bad? We don’t know because the writers haven’t decided? Is Nathan a lyer? Well, the writers don’t know what to do with him so I guess now he is. It’s pathetic.

    Hi su0000

    Oh my gosh, I’m in total agreement with you on every point you made!!!! haha ha

    #GHISLAME

    GH is always lame. I have it playing in the background, and these days, I rarely will look up and watch it…I listen to it like it’s radio.

    So many show piece events, Morgan’s bipolar, Tracey and her medical issue, Nathan and this Claudette chick, what the hell….where’s the real drama?!?! What happened to GH, you are so right, what do you call them, the Queens of Snooze? GH definitely needs fresh and younger writers, new blood, not old daytime blood. I hope GH can turn around, right now, it is sinking.

    I love my DAYS OF OUR LIVES, and, yes, it does have it’s problems, however, I’m glued to the screen; I watch it!

    Jeremy, can’t believe that I am in agreement with su0000 again, for the SECOND time (breathe again, Nancy!–lol) on almost all of her points.

    CeeCee replied

    Agreed, Jeremy…you always make good points.
    I think that Claudette ( I knew before Claudette was personified), will be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. She will materialize in PC and that will be he end of Nathan and Maxie. There is a little order in this chaos…LOL.
    I knew since the ‘glove’ in the tux incident that Maxie and Nathan were headed downhill. TPTB do not want Nathan and Maxie together anymore.
    Let’s not even talk about Morgan. Ugh!!
    New blood?? Oh, boy, Jeremy…careful now. You will be called an ageist. LOL.

    Ghlover replied

    Then why don’t you guys post on the Days board? GH is not lame, i dont waiste time watching lame shows and if you are guys get so excited about it that you are posting on the GH board; they are doing something right.

    Jeremy replied

    @ CeeCee, yes, I do realize my wording wasn’t exactly what I was attempting to say. I suppose what I meant to say was that these four remaining soaps, and for me as a view, I watch DAYS and listen/watch GH, new writers to daytime should be considered, we see recycled stories over and over and over from the ‘seasoned’ daytime writers. Why not allow, any NEW writers to get in there and give us something new to talk about, new adventures, new mysteries, GH is lacking in adventure and mystery. Helena’s reading of the will, what a joke that was, mysterious in some ways, perhaps, but it’s nothing deep, it’s really not executed well. And we yearn for adventures, these “show pieces” are just that, here today…gone tomorrow. That doesn’t make me want to invest. Right now, I see more potential in DAYS OF OUR LIVES, and that’s just my personal opinion to others on this blog, not you CeeCee. Nice hearing from you again, love reading your other observations and thoughts, too.

    CeeCee replied

    My dearest Jeremy.
    Again, my attempt at sarcasm failed miserably. LOL.
    I agree with you about this, but in past posts, each time su, I or anyone else even mentioned the word, ‘ young ‘ or ‘new’, we were labeled ageists. I cannot blame the fans, i do understand thrir devotion to the vets. But, it is a vicious circle….there needs to always be room for younger actors.
    Sadly, for Days, some of the youg ‘gang’ are failing ….however, they must start somewhere.
    Trust me, my friend. I found nothing wrong with your writing. I enjoy reading your comments immensely.
    Everyone is entitled to say whatever he/she has in mind( within borders, of course). When I disagree and give my opinion, I hope I do it civilly and not make the other poster feel less than. That is a terrible feeling.
    Thank you, Jeremy, for your kind words. Nothing you said was improper or lacked decorum, of any kind.

    CeeCee replied

    You go, girl, SuzieQ. Love your post.
    What TPTB are doing is beating around the bush. Make her gay, already!!!! I think Kristina is old enough to know herself….this vacillation is not doing it for me. I think she just worries about how her parents will handle the fact that she is gay; or what her friends will think, and/or eill they drop her as a friend. I do not like the lingering of “she MAY be gay”.
    I could be wrong, I do not know. But, two of my very best friends are gay. These guys have known how they felt since they were tweens. They just knew. It was scary for them; but they were young kids. I was even bashed as a girl, being their friend, as we got older. I remember kids, jokingly calling me a fag-hag. Very hurtful and not so funny, for my friends.
    Perhaps i am generalizing….i don’t know; everyone is difference. I duppise what’s good for one person, but not the other.
    I do agree with you, though….this storyline is choppy…..no beginning. I don’t know what would be better….to delve into her past for clues; or be done and just give her a gay storyline. I would enjoy that more than this, is she or is she not?
    As I said elsewhere…iI agree again; all the stories are MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING.
    GH is a patchwork of dis-jointed stories, right now.

    Suzy, your description is spot on BUT it sounds a lot like RC’s work. He would write in Tweets. Seriously, he would drop a bomb with no warning and no follow-up and thats what your accusing the women writers of doing with Kristina. I think that story and Anna’s are the two best right now.

    Oh, Lord, you crack me up. This visual is your best one, yet….a tossed salad with only lettuce. Good one….great way of describing boring.
    I must say, though….GH is not boring me too much, yet. I am looking forward to a few plots.

    Peggy replied

    I agree. The Crimson story and the breastfeeding kind of idiotic- I don’t care if Kristina is gay bi or straight. I miss Ron Carlivati’s writing and when they canned him they said he was doing other projects- what projects- Ron, where are you and when can we hear from you? Why is there no money in budgets so we can’t have on-location and regulars get bumped to recurring- I mean, hello, the number of commercials has steadily increased over the years. I would pay for Netflix of Hulu or whatever if they could come up with a good soap. If I spoke spanish I would start watching the telenovellas I think as they look pretty interesting.

    Her sexuality is probably fluid because ABC wants to test the waters, get a sense how viewers are going to react– if positive, Kristina will be gay; if negative she will figure out she is straight after all. Making the character sexuality fluid sounds progressive on the surface of it, but in the end they might be just covering their butts in case there is a homophobic backlash at making a legacy character homosexual– making her fluid gives them a way out that doesn’t involving killing the character off like Days did when they lost their nerve to support a legacy character being gay long term.

    CeeCee replied

    Love this reasoning, Mary….very sound. Is Kristina gay,mstraight, or bi….dense on the viewers’ reception. So en pointe.
    I believe the same thing will happen to Paul on Days. Considering how Will Horton’s gay character went ‘down’ (pun intended), TPTB do not want the same backlash from fans. So, they will ‘straighten’ Paul out. Bunch of hypocrites, Mary.
    Smart post, Mary.

    CeeCee replied

    Exactly, Liz. We know they exist; but will the network be ok with it, as you stated.
    I do believe it is exactly as you describe it.
    I know that Mary SF would not make such a statement without thought. She knows exactly what she’s talking about. And, we are in agreement.

    Timmm replied

    Brad and Lucas kiss. That didnt cause any stir.

    Reply

    nancy dillingham replied

    And it was just a cardboard kiss–no drama, no real story–the state of GH, unfortunately. We don’t care about any of these characters because we don’t “know” them.

    Gh1000 replied

    Your theory doesn’t hold any water. GH already has 3 openly gay characters, 1 of which is a legacy character (Lucas). Sure, they only get a fraction of the screentime as other characters, but they still exist!

    Reply

    Mary SF replied

    Having token gay characters two of which are merely recurring and not woven into the fabric of the history of the show is not the same thing as making a legacy character from a major family openly gay and having that story front burner and permanent.

    Yes Lucas is a legacy character and is gay, but after his coming out story he was written off the show and only came back recently and right now he might as well be a priest because after Ron left any or all realistic depictions of a gay sex life went out the window. The three gay characters on right now are so sanitized to be PC and PG they cannot offend anyone because their sexuality isn’t being shown at all, and when it was there a back lash.

    Having gay characters exist on a soap but not showing every aspect of their gay experience including their sex life while claiming they support the gay community is like a KKK member saying he is not a racist because there is a black family in town. But yes, like you, I do credit GH for acknowledging the existence of homosexuality and other forms of sexuality, which is more than Y&R does, but I still see Kristina being fluid is not a sign of modern thinking but merely network brass playing it safe.

    nancy dillingham replied

    I can’t “see” them!

    CeeCee replied

    Mary’s theory is very sound, Gh 1000.
    We are talking about a completely different person here, different gender, different personality.
    Kristina as gay, or bi is a new concept for fans….having known her forever as being into boys/men.
    We are not in THE MIDDLE AGES here…we are aware they exist. However, as Mary, i do believe TPTB have their BIG BROTHER eye opened wide. ‘They’ do want to test the waters….’they’ do want to see if the fans will conform or condone.
    It never is as cut and dry as you think. And, do not ever ridicule/underestimate another’s post. State your premise without being rude, thank you.
    Enough with the biting, sarcastic remarks by some of these posters.

    CeeCee replied

    I meant condemn, not condone.

    Liz replied

    Just because they exist doesn’t mean that ABC is 100% on board. I bet every time there’s a gay kiss, wedding or whatever the comment line goes nuts. Everything they’ve been doing lately is pandering to the few vocal viewers so I don’t doubt the testing the waters theory.

    Gh1000 replied

    ABC, across the board and compared to NBC and CBS, is very progressive when it comes to LGBT visibility. There is LGBT talent on the news and the talk shows, there are LGBT characters on GH and in their primetime programming. Why would the execs at ABC hestitate to show a bisexual character?

    CeeCee replied

    Is that why Days killed off Will?….because the soap is so progressive? The only gay character left is Paul, whom I believe, will be ‘ungayed’.
    At least, GH has an on-going romance between Brad and Lucas. How long this lasts remains to be seen. They could break up as any other couple.
    Days completely disintegrated all gay characters. Paul only showed up, recently. It was ‘assumed’ he was around.
    Besides, you said the theory of Mary’s ‘testing the waters’, held no water. But, now you agree. I am glad you see this now.
    I do agree with you about the bisexuality storyline. You are right; it does seem that TPTB are hesitating….afraid to touch it.

    Patrick replied

    Meh…

    they are playing it so safe… on all outlets

    student/teacher crush

    Love “is” a universal thing

    Fluid : never heard this term before… used to describe something that can change easily or that changes often

    so.. this certainly let’s Lexie and the production “value” off the hook… should an uproar.. commotion rally

    I DO, however, do not mind… Love is a universal thing… which I appreciate coming from the younger generations… “Thank You” which is simply putting any and all sexual attraction… together.. and… whatever floats your boat…

    YES ! I laud this… because the (older) MEN in office are having to yield and recognize the younger generations MINDSET…. YES ! I love that they are responding vocally and with enthusiasm… that sexuality is just that… stimulation in all it’s form be acknowledged

    the thing that makes me LAUGH ! what do I care what Sonny thinks ????

    will this be done to prop his character… and bring him in to the 21st century… as being “cool” relevant… and sensitive ?

    barf on any thing Alexis might wanna echelon her stance

    nevertheless… I commend ABC / Disney / GH for traversing this arena… that exploring sexuality… is a lot more commonplace

    I SO hope… even if she never couples with; Kristina… that Ashley Jones… is given more material… to feature her talents… she’s a sublime actress… and has a natural screen presence to mine… DAYS !!!! here’s your new Sami

    it would be a good thing for Kristina.. to experience her feelings right here… in Port Charles… ????

    I know when I left home… to go to college.. is where I came out… even to this day… would I dare traverse openly … in my home town ??? !

    Lexie Ainsworth … do a bang up job… take no prisoners… be accountable… for the VALUE of character

    Great post, Patrick. As a gay man, yourself, I do appreciate your input. Beside the point that each is an individual.

    Gh1000 replied

    My point is that this storyline just got started. It’s too early to make judgements on how well the story is going to play out. Maybe they are testing the waters out, Kristina’s character has never been fleshed out anyway (semi-spoiled mob princess isn’t very deep). Why not take a breath and see if the the scripts, the acting, and the chemistry can create a good story?

    I really like that they are exploring Kristina’s gender fluidity. I just wish it were with a peer and not a professor. They are introducing a power dynamic that is sometimes abused on college campuses. Plus Parker is a married women which makes Kristina a potential home wrecker on top of everything else. I would have liked it better if Kristina found herself attracted to someone in PC closer to her age. Valerie perhaps?

    And in what was otherwise a good storyline, there was the preposterous idea that Max could get from PC to Middletown and immediately dig up info on Molly all within what must have been an hour! Kristina saw Sonny should not have confronted Kristina until the next day at least. It’s just bad storytelling.

    And speaking of Molly, why did she have to sleep with her boyfriend–in such an “off-hand” way, off-camera (!)–a big “meh”!

    Jeremy replied

    @ Nancy, maybe Molly didn’t sleep with TJ, maybe she said she did because of the conversation with Kristina beforehand, maybe Molly mislead everyone, to conform and be like everyone – which would be out of character for Molly to do, but hey, it’s possible, if we didn’t SEE that scene happen, it’s a possibility that Molly and TJ didn’t go all the way. If Molly & TJ did have sex, I believe after the few years dating and being together, the show would have shown bits and pieces to show the maturity levels of both characters and the evolution of their history, the making love scene could have been done tastefully and been a great tribute to these characters who took their time until it felt right. But, I’m not convinced, Molly in some ways, is her father’s daughter, she could still be a virgin!

    I have no problem if she is straight, gay or bi…my problem with GH is these stories are not well connected to other stories or characters…it seems the writers have trouble connecting dots and they fall all over the place…instead of connecting Kristina to a current cast member like Kiki they just add another character to the show like Parker-their little affair is off camera…thats how they seem to write much of this show…instead of working in the characters they have they just add someone new to move their story…like Maxie and Nathan-instead of having maybe Valerie as his ex we now learn its someone named Claudette so it looks like a newbie will be introduced to move this story along while other character like Scotty get nuttin-his daughter Serena couldve been the teacher involved with Kristina and thats what they should had done…tied Kristina to a legacy character and gave kin Shriner more story involvement.

I would be very much in favor of a Dallas inspired it was all a dream and revive AJ Quatermaine, Connie Falconari- love love her and not as the perennial victim Sage- also Alan Qartermaine, Helena, Tony and bring back Johnny from prison and way more Kathleen Gatti -fire her from the hospital and turn her back into pure evil genius.

    True, jimh, but that is the nature of this soap, none more so than when Ron C. was in charge of the stories. I had hoped that there would be a tendency away from that habit with a new writing team, but there is still too much heresay, off-camera action going on. Having said that, am I the only one who thinks that Parker’s main squeeze should have been Lomax? What a delicious dilemma that would have created with the animosity already stirred by Alexis and her legal posturings against the mayor. Can you just imagine how furious she would be to discover her woman was stepping out on her with the daughter of her latest nemesis? Oooh, that would just be toooo good!!!

    Hard to develop a story when they only cover it 1x every 3 weeks! If you are going to do a story like this then dive in (no pun) or don’t do it at all. It is very frustrsting @ GH when they write half-assed stories while other characters are seen almost daily; Sam/Jason/Liz overstayed its welcome! I would love to see this storyline front snd center or at least give It more airtime.

  8. Timmm says:

    I applaud our GH writers for writing a story, one that doesnt get told everyday. I like how Kristina openly admits she is confused about how she feels and her younger sister is there to reason with her. I like how this story is being treated as a social issue where one could and does ask him or herself, am I gay or was it a passing faze? Often times the debate is, are we born gay or is it a lifestyle you adapt to. I dont know that answer. Some people who are gay know it VERY early on and only struggle to find a way to let the rest of the world know. Kristina dated boys before Parker but did she do that because that is the written “Rule” or has she changed her preference? I hope this story stays true and isnt turned into a joke. Sonny will not be mad, Alexis is a women who believes women make their own choices and do what is best for them! I agree, no one should be inspired by peer pressure! Sonny has bigger fish to fry in Morgan and Kristina’s issues are low in comparison.

    No way would I want to see Kristina written as bisexual—that will only send out the message to viewers that she doesn’t really know what she wants and that is unhealthy. If they make her out to be gay, that’s great. If they choose to go in another direction, I will be fine with that too but not exploring bisexuality. That one I wouldn’t buy.

    I don’t see why being bisexual or not or whatever a person is has anything to do with soap drama..
    It is so commonplace that nobody is shocked by it..
    The younger generation has no problems with any of it, it is of their world..
    Older people my see a story about it as being sensational, but really much to do about nothing in this 21st century..

    there are many urgent happenings in our world to take preference over someone’s sexual preference, that even bringing upfront is totally oldfashioned lame.

    su0000 replied

    furthermore–
    I liked the way RC portrayed Brad, Felix, Lucas as normal everyday guys living their lives having fun romping in bed or shower, watching the Golden Girls,having love problems, and simply living their lives as all of do.. No big hoopla made of made it.

    So far, I find the story rather boring, but it is creating an interesting convo here

    People don’t identify as bisexual because they “don’t know” or “can’t decide” what they want. Bisexuals aren’t indecisive, they’re attracted to both sexes!

    Whatever the outcome of this story, Lexi has made me a believer in how well she is playing Kristina. I wasn’t overly impressed when she came back to PC, but she has risen to the occasion in this emotional role.

    The whole story line is not going to work mainly because the actress is not capable of the acting chops it requires. I know a lot of people like Lexie, and I’m certain she’s a very nice person, but I have never been a fan of her as an actress capable of a meaty story line.

    In just this episode and the one before it, she stepped on another actors lines 3 times ( if you’re paying attention you can tell because they were still finishing their sentence while she was already talking, so it was very noticeable and distracting), forgot her lines twice ( again, if you’re paying attention, she repeated herself back to back making no sense) and her fake crying went on for a bit before tears actually started so it just came across as immature whining.

    Until she becomes a better actress, and not just a nice person, she’s never going to be able to sell the story line no matter how good or bad the writing is. I can’t become invested in a story if the acting is a distraction. Because the story line involves other heavy hitting actors, even Molly is doing a great job, it is even more noticeable that her skill is not up to par.

    Oh, thank you, clh! I totally agree with your assertions…..I was one of those not at all enthused to see this actress back in the role of Kristina! In addition to her shortcomings in the drama department, I just don’t find her one bit likeable in the role….the character comes across as mean, nasty, self-absorbed and hostile, often almost evil. There is nothing admirable or endearing about her to create any sort of feeling of interest or empathy where her situation is concerned, unlike say, with the previous example set with the beloved Lucas. Personally, I just want this character to go away, and I don’t care if it is with man, woman, animal, vegetable or mineral. Just go now….please!

    Yes, we discussed this before, Shaybelle.
    We both agreed early on, you and I, the other actress was so much more affable. I loved ‘that’ Kristina.
    Presently, this one has BRF. Her attitude gives off negative vibes; arrogant; snarling!!

    The guilt trip Sonny laid on Kristina was laughable. I wanted Kristina to tell her father to get off his high horse and ask if “everything he’d done to make sure she went to a good school” included murdering AJ Quartermaine.

    Do I hope Kristina is gay or straight? That she has a relationship with Professor Parker? Does it matter? The gay characters they already have barely get any airtime the way it is so unless Kristina hooks up with a lesbian mobster she ain’t get any more screentime than Lucas and Brad. As for GENERAL HOSPITAL touching on relevant topics — touching on topics is about all they do because then they have to get back to focusing on Saint Sonny and the mob.

    I don’t trust this writing team to do this story any justice based on Thursday’s episode alone: Franco leaving Leo in a laundry cart and walking away to take a phone call was beyond ridiculous and how dumb do they think viewers are to believe that a printer would print each page of a magazine separately instead of in tabloid format for binding? I’m assuming CRIMSON is along the lines of VOGUE so its page count is probably around 100 pages without ads so if we assume each box contains 500 pages and the number of issues printed was 100,000 that means the printer would’ve had twenty thousand boxes of single pages and never once called to confirm something like that. Sure. And what about the issues for subscribers? We’re supposed to believe that the printer thought each page would be mailed out separately? The only thing missing from this mess was Carlos and Sabrina rushing back to Port Charles and collecting pages so they could start a college fund for baby Rivera…-

    Today’s breastfeeding scene was absolutely asinine.
    Nina, Maxie, Carly, Alexis and Olivia all strip down to their bras tit flashing, really? that is more than lame.
    It is also stupidly embarrassing for intelligent viewers to witness that tity display, sheesh
    I’d bet we will never see the men flashing their dicks !! .

    It wasn’t cute, not funny, not sexy, just embarrassingly stupid, sigh ..

    Way more cool and interesting and dramatic to have Monica dip in the ladypond. Meredith Baxter did and by the way she would be Excellent as Monica’s new galpal and I miss her on Y&R and still hoping she returns after nursing Kelly back to health. Perhaps part of the reason this story is so slow is the woman who plays the professor was given time off to have a baby and Valenti agreed??

    Wow, Peggy……the fact that Kelly is alive did cross my mind. But, her mother taking care of her did not. I like the premise.

    I would love it, and thought they opened the door when they said nobody on the ship died.Now that Phyllis and Billy and cozying up, Kelly couldn’t show up at a better time- although this all will delay until May sweeps I suppose. I am not buying Victor’s attorney determined to throw the case against him- I guess it is certainly feasible, I thought he was more principled and this makes him just another sleazy attorney so perhaps… Since Y&R is casting a female prison nurse I am guessing Victor is convicted and then he and the nurse carry on- and I do like that idea. It was nice to see Monica but her face appears so swollen and round I am guessing she and Bobby Spencer have the same dermatalogist?

    I don’t see ABC as having a problem with gay stories or characters. Sam Champion, Robin Roberts, Modern Family, The Real O’Neals, they fired the Grey’s Anatomy actor for homophobic slurs- I think they are way ok with diversity and that is great. Now sink some more cash into the soap’s budget, return at least one more soap please, and we are good.

    I would love that too, Peggy. No one on the ship died. Now, I remember. Jack also, does not have any memory of what happened. He just assumed he killed Kelly. Good one, Peggy.
    I like all your observations.
    Something really weird Phyllis said made me snicker. After macking out with Billy, hot and heavy, she said…” We need to stop, this is not us”. Really? That is exactly who they are!! Yuck!! As I said so many times before, I do not recognize this Phyllis, nor this Billy. Ahhhh, well !!
    I, too, am glad to see more of Monica. I would have liked to see her more in scenes with Jason ( who, in my opiniom, has become Sam’s patsy), but, it is what it is. Sam says, “jump”, jason says, “how high”.
    Lol, Peggy. I refrained from saying anything about Monica’s ‘transformation’. I do hope the swelling goes down. Alas, I think this is a permanent look. A few wrinkles add character and tell a life story.
    Speaking of Bobby, where is she? With Luke? Lol.

    The effects of carbonic snow on the faces of female residents of a certain age in Port Charles? Is this another Cassadine curse? Let me just say that I hate Shawn, the pregnant girl on Y&R and I do not understand budget concerns take actors off contract then two days later they announce a new actress coming on board. Paul on Y&R has no Cassadine facial freeze and his colorist is excellent.

    CeeCee replied

    @Peggy.
    LOL.
    I know this is a GH site….but, Shawn is there for a reason. She may be INTO Nick, or she’s after money. Whatever it is, she is the to break up Sage and Nick, somehow.
    Pal looks good…has been wearing a hair piece/ transplant for years.
    The GH ladies; Finola, Genie, Michelle, Nancy, Laura, Jane, Kathleen…..they all look beautiful, naturally.

    Paul, not Pal….there, not the….
    GH (I forgot Lisa and Carolyn…beautiful ladies).
    Lisa is gorgeous ….

    Kristina has been offscreen for three years. Nobody really knows what she has been doing ever since she left. There is plenty of room in that long time span for the writing team to make this a beleivable twist. A lot of girls in her age range tend to go through sexual fluidity and just cause you thought you only liked boys in your teens doesn’t always mean you will feel the same when you become an adult.

    She could have been experimenting with her sexuality while she was away for these three years and finally felt something strong in her interaction with Parker. It would be coming out of nowhere if it was Carly, Liz, or Sam who were suddenly having romantic feelings for the opposite sex cause we’ve seen them every day for the last three years but again Kristina is still young and her onscreen history with boys is a small sample size and she’s been away long enough for a change to be realistic.

    Kristina’s romantic history doesn’t amount to very much with the opposite sex and in two cases ended in tragic deaths so she’s never had a good healthy relationship like her sisters have had. Keifer didn’t just physically beat her up more than once but left her with some deep emotional scars in the way he spoke to her. Kristina had an obsessive crush on Ethan but he never returned the feelings so that was child’s play to me. Trey married Kristina under false pretenses and that was another unhealthy relationship/crush that was very short lived. She demanded that the marriage be annulled when she learned about his misdeeds. Joe Scully asked his son try to help him get revenge on Sonny by using Kristina so Trey ended that reality show and told her he wanted to be with her. Joe Scully even kidnapped her at some point when he realized his plan didn’t work out so more trauma for Kristina.

    I really like this storyline and feel like the writing’s been good. Jean Passanante wrote two very popular and award winning gay storylines on AMC/ATWT so I have full confidence in her getting this right. They have got the right actress and the right character in this position with Kristina being a legacy character with tons of connections in town. It wouldn’t impact the canvas if it was some newbie with no ties in town.

    The decision to make her bisexual/lesbian woman makes for great soapy drama and lots of angsty conflict and it’s something fresh and new. The remaining four soaps don’t have any gay female characters as it’s only been gay male characters. I don’t remember GH ever telling this type of story with a female so again it’s something we haven’t seen before. I am thrilled they brought Lexi back for this story and are giving her very meaty material to play out cause she’s got the acting chops to pull it off.

    Love to see where the Kristina and Parker storyline goes. These two could be another super couple of daytime, but might need to change to an older actress for Kristina. Lexi Ainsworth seems way too young for the professor. Where are the Otalia fans? Tired of only seeing the male gay storylines.

    You writers are obviously not aware of this, but many of us would simply like to be able to watch a tv show and enjoy love relationships as they were naturally intended to be. Why do you think we want to see men kissing men, women kissing women. There are many people who feel that a person has the right to live as he chooses – however – that doesn’t mean that it has to continually be blast into our faces or into our homes. Come on- give me a break!

    I might be in the minority but I thought two people in love was the way “love relationships were naturally intended to be.” I’m a gay man who has known he was gay since his teens so that is natural to me — Your argument that the GH gay relationships are “continually blasted into our faces” doesn’t really hold much water: Lucas and Brad are rarely on together and are basically celibate at this point and the current Kristina/Parker “story” has barely been featured until the past week.

    I can’t speak for other viewers but as far as I am concerned I would much rather see stories about love regardless of gender than witness more mob violence and shootings.
