    Again I agree, was thinking the same thing that she is the new Starr Manning. She’s really pretty and it would be awesome!

    I don’t like her it seems like OLTL is trying to put too much of the shows stories to the youth. I don’t want OLTL to try to become something different they need to sick to the families. Hiring some singer who probably can’t even act just because she is almost famous is a really had move. I am still supporting OLTL and Prospect Park though and I am still eagerly awaiting April, 29.

    It looks like they are sticking to the families from what iv read on who is returning. This singer might b the new starr but whoever she is im sure she’ll be connected to the families in some ways. But she just better know how to act.

    She looks like a more badass, no-nonsense Starr who could keep bratty younger brother Jack in his place. But as Starr or not im just hoping she can act as good as she can sing. ill give her a chance b4 i judge. But will this all work out…? What sounds good so far doesnt mean a thing. its more about the stories than anything else. And like all soaps some of these stars can still quit, or be fired. So ill wait and see how it all comes together April 29th. Now once again there will be 6 soaps and hopefully this will be part of the turnaround 4 the genre. Which soap we decide to watch or not, lets be gratful we still have them around with us.

    Replayed video: Song not as good as i thought the first time but she might appeal to the younger teen crowd. As 4 acting i cant tell…so ill judge after i see the first few episodes…

    Not good news at all this woman looks like she is a bad actor and has been brought on to help with ratings. I can already tell I’m going to hate her.

    They should reveal that Irene was behind Cole and Hope’s disappearance too.

    A producer from OLTL is on Twitter and says that Jessie is NOT the new Starr Manning. Since she’s supposed to play an aspiring musician could she be Tina & Cord’s rock star daughter Sarah aka “Flash”?
