    Could it be she is taking time off to promote her new show? The thought of her being ill bothers me. Doesn’t she tweet?? I don’t know how so I can’t check.

    I certainly hope her anorexic is off eating a sandwich somewhere and getting acting lessons. She is hideous looking and a hideous actress.

    I would like to see you on stage going what she does, She is an Actress, What you consider hideous and what she does for a living is two different things. You can’t see passed your nose. It called ACTING.

    With a name like “IHateSoaps” I wonder why you are even looking at soap blogs!
    Seems you have a slight character flaw. In light of that you have no right to judge Kirsten or anyone else for that matter.

  24. Jenlvogel says:

    I didn’t mean to bash the actress. It is just that the character of Maxie is very self absorbed, but in the Kirsten’s familiar hands, she is quirky and endearing, with a stranger behaving that way, it loses the endearing quality. I don’t think anyone but Kirsten could pull off that character – remember prior actresses did not play Maxie this way, and I know that I never cared for Maxie until Kirsten took over. It didn’t hurt that she reminds me of a younger Kristina Wagner.

    I agree that not to bash the fill in girl, but Maxie is not Maxie without Kirsten. I have to wonder tho, if they are aware of how long she will be out “sick”, I tend to think “sick” is another word for rehab. If that is the case, I sent the best thoughts for Kirsten to find the help she needs and look forward to her return on GH.

    Kirsten, you are so sweet and no one can play Maxie with the heart and sole that you do. But on a personal level, you are missing your family and your brother and you need to fix your friendship with Farah. Too many stresses for such a young and talented young girl. You need to release some of the stress which I’m praying will help to ease your endometriosis. God bless you and get well soon.

    Its been longer then that ,I believe its been close to 6 months,at this time kirsten isnt coming back , I think she is still very sick.jenn lilley is going to stay and be maxie,and I like the job she is doing keeping maxie kicking till kirsten gets healthy again.there has been no word on how k s is doing at this time,but the illness she has is a tough one to get over,you can be sick for a very long time.i hope she gets well soon.her character (maxie) is in good hands for now.

    We’re so use to Kristen, but the other young lady isn’t a bad replacement. She plays the role with the same zest, and energy, and that was not an easy feet to do. And she has not done bad, picking up Kristen’s voice and sounding somewhat like her…

    I agree ,that poor girl jenn lilley is getting so much hate mail ,how stupid is that ,at her facebook page a while back I got on some guy or girl for really putting her down ,well I let the writer have it .I keep telling jenn lilly to get that ass off her page and finaly she did ,she is so sweet she takes the time to post back to her fans and I like that.and I like how she is playing maxi.taking over a role of someone else is hard ,she doing great .I also told her that if ks comes back that ron and frank have to find a way to keep her on gh.shes a spitfire and I like that .
