@Supramom2000-NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! I just do not want to believe that they would let Lexi go. I wonder who the others are? Male or female? If it is female, d list, one of the actors, I would hope is the actress that plays Abby. I would have no problem with her leaving the show.
If Lexi is out is it possible this may be to "make room" for the Gina Soleito character that is supposedly "on deck"? Personally I'd rather they scrap any story line that calls for another infusion of crime based businesses. Sad if it's true because she's got talent and has a very appealing presence...
Supramom--Thanks for the info. I'm disappointed by the news about Lexi. She's a cutie-patootie. You said a b lister and 2 d listers will be out. I agree with you Jasam, Abby can go. Dominic Zamprogna (not a b lister) can go. Molly can go. Matt (despite me thinking that he looks HOT with the beard) can go. I know Spinelli will be on a lotta people's list, butI'm on the fence about him.
Remember, I read this on Daytime Dish - so it is still completely unconfirmed. If any of it is true, I would guess between Abby, Shawn, Max, Diane for D listers. For B, maybe Olivia, Steve, maybe Anthony Z?
Ravenbeauty has been saying there will be many layoffs starting this fall.
Some new stuff direct from Daytime Dish - so remember, some are false and misleading, some are speculation, some are partially correct and some are correct.
The Lady in White and NuDoc were lovers in the past.
The LIW is Laura's child.
NuDoc will be Lulu's therapist and Lulu will have a tough time with him.
NuDoc knows Steve's secret.
NuDoc will use Liz to get at Steve.
Steve will also know the Lady in White. It's possible he was her doctor.
Franco drugs Sam while she is taking a shower after hot sex with her husband. I know she will be left extremely vulnerable tied to a bed shortly after but i'm not 100% certain yet if she was raped or not. I'll be back to confirm.
Jason and Shawn are annoyed with Carly's antics.
Olivia is worried about Lulu's drinking. Lulu fake being happy of her engagement to Dante.
Lucky and Dante talk about marriage and Dante later has doubts.
Steve is faced with his criminal past and his old partner in crime.
Sonny and Kate share a kiss.
Patrick, Robin and their friends are kidnapped by armed men.
Mac and Alexis go on a real date.
Kristina ask Ethan to be with her or let her go.
These are direct copies from DD, thus the grammar errors and typos, etc.
Okay guys, here are the newest ones from WUBS:
**OK-- here we go. The Lady In White? May be Laura's daughter, twin of Nikolas. Yep...you heard me. That's the stuff going around. That's why she hates Laura, slashed her pic etc. Now, some say she'll look like Siobhan to further throw off the scent.
**Sam's brother Danny will come around-- and not be who we thought he was. This will tie into her "Who's My Daddy" story. (Promised now for YEARS and never happened).
**Franco rapes Sam, she'll be PG and she won't know if it's Franco or Jason.
**Steve had something to do with the Lady In White--OR drugs but will be tied to the new doctor. There's a wild rumor he saved Jake and knows where he is. NOT sure I believe that one.
**MY rumor about Siobhan/twin may be coming true! See below!
**Lexi Ainsworth is out (Krissy)...and Molly is going too--RUMORS remember
**multiple people are out. You name them, they may be out.
*JJ is out
Oh, I hate hearing of the potential of LA leaving, and now maybe Molly too? I don't want the Davis coven disbanded! Alexis needs ALL 3 of her girls.
Thanks Supramom. Not happy about Lexi and Hayley. Definitely don't like
where they're going with Sam/Jason/The Pest(my term for Franco)...
Just mixing in a bit of new spoilers. Credit goes to ABC Hotsheet, WUBS, and SID.
♥♥♥♥♥♥ SPOILERS! SPOILERS! SPOILERS! ♥♥♥♥♥♥
*Jason and Sam are off to Hawaii to enjoy their honeymoon ... and they're not alone. Yes, Franco has followed them and he plans to deliver a special wedding gift to the happy couple. This can't be good news for them.
*Back in Port Charles, the sexual tension between Carly and Shawn is rising. But when Michael spots the two of them emerging from the panic room, will word trickle back to Sonny? And how will he react?
*Kate has a twinge of jealousy over Olivia and Sonny.
*Lulu is still reeling from Dante's near-death. This week, she copes in a few different ways. For one thing, she gives Dante her answer to his marriage proposal. But she also threatens to fall into Spencer bad habits when she starts drinking to get her mind off what's happened.
*Patrick can't believe his eyes when he sees Dr. Lisa!
*Speaking of the Spencers, Tracy gets a shock when she sees Luke has returned. Will these two pick up where they left off, or has too much changed between them? And Tracy's not the only person who might not welcome Luke back with open arms. Which of Luke's sons is holding a grudge?
*Liz lashes out at Lucky after she realizes there is no hope for their future.
*Luke's home with gifts for all!!
*All this, plus Michael refuses to step down from a major piece of mob business, plus Spinelli and Matt help Maxie commemorate BJ's birthday.
Thanks Jasam-they talk about "long hot summers"-I think we're in for a "firey fall". Hope your "break" from GH is "restful"...
Thanks guys for the spoilers.
I am confused by something I read at Wubs. Please forgive my ignorance if this is common knowledge, and I didn't pay attention earlier:
Quote: "I said it before, and I'll say it again--this bait and switch of Garin Wolf is getting hysterically funny. We know Guza's a producer still-- and boy, does it show. The ELQ offices? So promising to go in another direction. Then, it's all of a sudden gone. Michael decides in a nano-second he has to get into "Daddy's Biz" and is off to the coffee warehouse where he sits and I guess..er..smells the coffee?" End Quote
Is Karen joking, or has Guza been a producer all along, and I didn't know it? Can anyone help?
@Swan-I think my break will be a long and relaxing one.
@SupraMom-Thanks for the tidbits.
@Tealita-I am not sure about this but I posted a couple of weeks ago on this thread that I felt Garin was not actually writing the show although his name is listed on the credits. I am not sure what is going on. Part of me feels TPTB want to ensure GH is off the air, so they are pretty much hand holding whoever the writer is and advising to write the worst storylines possible, so that GH does not increase in viewers and instead decreases. That way they can always justify cancelling the show. The writing of the show seems to have gone back to Guza's style which is hate for women and the same characters shown on a daily basis, and MOB, MOB, MOB.
Jasam/Tealita-You both are hitting on something I posted here a little while back when I said I felt GW was being "restrained" from what he really wanted to do. If, this is in actuality, what is happening then we are looking at a GH that is being dismantled from the inside for TPTB's own selfish purposes. GW will end up being a convenient "scapegoat" for us to blame when it should be Guza getting the blame along with Phelps, Frons,
Sweeney, Disney etc...I would stop watching but then that would mean I'm giving up and for the sake of cast and crew I refuse to do that. My own sense of loyalty to them and their situation...
I got into a snit and stopped watching for about a week. But you gotta figure, I've watched this show for 37 years. I watch out of nostalgia, mostly; for all the characters i loved in the past. But what I don't understand, is why GH still thinks they need a ,"killer," to write the show into the toilet. To us, it's a forgone conclusion that this is GH's last year. I've accepted it. Now write something decent.
I posted recently that maybe Garin would "write" the show until the cancellation was announced and Guza would return to end the show "he loves and knows better than anyone else"
Lexi has not been fired. Let ABC know you love Lexi. She is doing an independant movie!!
shilo0854-Thank you for the tidbit. I want to see LA continue in this role.
Will call ASAP.
These spoilers and the rumors about Lexi and Haley leaving make me not want to watch Gh, however I am greatful to you guys who post them! I really hope they don't go that route with Sam being raped, a rape story on a soap is powerful when it doesn't happen so damn often, especially on a show like gh where rape stories post Liz's aren't written properly. Take Michael's for example, it was written horribly and there was no follow through with after, it was just brushed under the rug and something like rape should've changed Michael and it didn't he still wants to be Soprano Jr. I do think Steve and Kelly have the acting chops to pull it off, but I just don't feel its necessary to go that route again for the umpteenth time.
I agree..they blew the jax was raped story, the blew the michael was raped story, they blew the maxie and lulu were nearly raped by Logan story - why would we believe they will do this justice.
My GUESS...sam has sex with jason and then is raped by franco, leading to a pregnancy. because of her health problems, they cant do an amnio so the story will be is Sam carrying her love child with jason or is she carrying the product of her brutal rape. The story will be how they feel about the pregnancy and my guess again is that the show ends with the paternity reveal that Jason finally has a child of his own to raise.
And SERIOUSLY how many times are they going to put sam in sexual peril. I totally agree that kelly is physically alluring, but I hate that the writers keep going there with her without making some effort to address Sam's feeling on that score. Bill Monroe looked like he was going to rape and kill her, Jerry sold her to a sex slave ring, manny went after her that way - its disgusting. As for Danny, if they go there I am going to be so pissed. Sam has a dad she doesnt know and I think her adopted father is still on the lamb. If they want to make a brother going after her kind of story, why not just give one of them a child instead of saying the death we WITNESSED ON SCREEN didnt somehow happen? Cmon. Im sure when people get disgusted and tune out to all this darkness the haters will say its because of JaSam and Sam specifically and yet I dont see one thing in those spoilers that appeals to me (a fact that has nothing to do with characters or pairings but the lame ass writing.)
The story will be how they feel about the pregnancy and my guess again is that the show ends with the paternity reveal that Jason finally has a child of his own to raise.
Jason Morgan had a child! His name is Jacob Martin Spencer.
GHH's Shirley is saying Lexi is not out, that it all stems from her leave of absence to do a movie. I'm also hearing Ethina are still endgame, but maybe delayed.
GHH and Daytime Dish are both saying that Robin is going to go missing off the boat and be presumed dead by everyone but Patrick.
I heard things are going to get bad again for Liz and that she does not think of Matt romantically.
Also, I heard that the rape story is to set up Jason's personality change.
Shirley also has a rumor that Kate did have a baby (as someone here speculated) and it is Spinelli with Trevor Lansing.
Abby warns Johnny about the coming retaliation from Sonny and thus the end of Mabby.
Oh Jinkees! Is Jason going to develop Michael's rageaholic personality? I hope not, I can barely stand him as is, I don't want to have to watch Sonny, Michael and Jason ALL be rage monkeys.
I read something a rumor over on another board about the gal who plays Star on OLTL coming to GH as a recast of someone... anyone have any ideas of who or heard this yet?
Thanks Supramom, for the spoilers. I'm glad you made sense out of the spoilers coming from the Daytime Dish, which I wasn't able to. And thanks for the good news about Lexi. I wuv Kristina. But the rape story? They can shove that! Yuck. Is Jason's personality going dark, or as everyone hoped, will he turn a little Q?
@Tealita- We are talking about GH, so of course Jason is going dark. What other choice does he have? All I want to see more Q's, and it would be nice if Jason was a combo of both Morgan and Q.
Honestly these directions are simply depressing and I'm getting to the point where I'm dreading watching. Next thing I know I might be commenting on a beheading taking place in the hospital and the evidence ends up getting tossed off the roof to land God knows where. Anyway, thanks for the "goodies" everyone-or should I now refer to them as "baddies"?...sigh...
4 Real that wasnt a crack because he NEVER had Jake to raise because they made that decision from the start not to have jake become a morgan. I also consider michael to be sort of a son, but again he didnt really get the opportunity to raise him given that I think he only had him for about 6 months. A JaSam baby will be the first child he will - barring death - that he will get to raise from birth to adulthood.
Swan I agree this is depressing
EET,,,I never thought it was a crack. JMO,,every time Frons interfered in pushing his agenda whether via Courtney or Sam meant that Liason was given the shaft including Jason being apart of Liz's pregnancy and raising his son. It is not necessary for you to respond to my comment...Thanks
So guys, it looks like Lexi is leaving. GHH is saying they think she has been let go. Another Daytime Dish post says she is out and a new, older actress will be brought in.
@mipeony-Yes, I did recently hear the rumor of the Starr character from OLTL coming to GH as a recast. The recast character would be Kristina. Just a rumor that it will be her though.
@Supramom-Yes. The rumors that Lexi has been let go are not dying down but only growing stronger. Ravenbeauty put up a little tidbit yesterday that although people will deny a recast is or has taken place, it actually has, as they want to take the character in a more mature, sexier direction. It has Lexi written all over it. If Lexi is gone, so am I, from GH, and not returning. I have waited for a long time for Kristina and Ethan to get together with the current characters, mind you. It would not only be this decision that I would cause me to permanetely leave GH, but the rape storyline rumored between Sam and Franco, the fact that Robin will be assumed dead, coupled with I can't stand any of the new characters such as Abby, Delores, temp recast for Maxie, and NuKate, and I am not a Dante and Lulu fan, The Quartermaines along with Alexis have dissapeared again. There is nothing left to interest me. Apparently TBTB do not care what viewers opinions or wants for the show are.
On one good note, I happened to be scanning channels last night and turned to Soapnet in the wee hours of the morning. Lo and behold they are actually showing older episodes of AMC, OLTL, and GH. I don't know the years they are showing for AMC and OLTL, but for GH, it is when Skye was pregnant and Alexis was receiving chemo, Jason and Sam were trying to get back together but Liz had just found out she was pregnant, and Michael was a redhead, and Ric! I will definately record these GH episodes. Soapnet should have been doing this all along.
Jasam-This "news" regarding LA is distressing to say the least. While I don't mind KA coming over from OLTL, I was thinking, since they've seemed intent on bringing on the Soleito family from Tracy's past, they would cast the character of Gina with this younger actress. I'm also on record as not in favor of the direction they are going with Sam and Jason, as well as Ethina. I am sad for you, as much as I am sad for the Liason fans, and, as you know me,
we minority D&L(Lante) fans as it looks as though the show is being reduced to rubble. Whatever happens, please try to stay in touch and at least "pop in" with spoilers and to say "Hello."
I've enjoyed coresponding with you since I "got on board" here. You've always been kind to me...Take care...
@Swan-You are a gem! I will not go far. I will still post the GH spoilers. My daughter still watches GH so she will keep me informed. Although Kristina and Molly are her favorites. She asked me the other day if GH had a soundtrack. I thought that was too funny, because I have to say, their music selection has become really good. If only the rest would follow suite.
JaSamForever,,,Your comments about Kristina/Ethan remind me so much as to how pissed off I am that Liason was never given the chance to be out in the open instead of constantly stalled and forced apart in order for Frons to push his own agenda's. I have been waiting and campaigning since 1999 for GH to write for my couple! Yes, I left GH back in the winter of 2008 after they broke up Liason, Skate, JoLu, and the killings of Alan, Emily and Georgie lost the show 1,000,000 viewers in 2007. I will read Perkie's GH recaps and an occasional Liz scene on YT, but that is the extent of my watching GH. The "agenda" driven BS in firing RH and then killing off Jake and not allowing one of the shows lead to not be able to ever raise his son has truly ticked me off and I see why you're wanting to turn off GH after the news of LA being fired and the Sam/Franco junk.
The one difference I see is that there doesnt seem to be another popular alternative to Ethina. The have ethan walking around a castle alone every few days and Kristina gets to be background fodder for the JaSam wedding. I think everyone is either angry that they havent gone forward with ethina because they are fans OR they are ambivalent. Conversely choosing between Liason and JaSam was going to piss of one sizable fan base either way and a choice had to be made. Im sorry for you and the other Liason fans truly that it didnt go your way, but Im personally happy that they went with jaSam, even if I am UNHAPPY with the writing for my couple.
Where I would agree there is agenda is in the firing of both women. For whatever reason frons phelps guza and perhaps wolfe has a definition in their mind of what is beautiful and anyone that doesnt meet that standard seems to be endangered of being fired or back burnered. For some reason it seems according to rumors on the web that tiic do not think becky,nancy, megan or lexi are "beautiful". What I dont get is this, lets assume for a second they are right (which I dont think they are, but for the sake of discussion lets assume they are) ...SO WHAT? Does EVERY woman on a soap have to be gorgeous. Isnt part of what makes a soap interesting that the characters resemble america - whether that means having minorities on the show or same sex characters or older characters or heavy characters or characters that just arent classically beautiful. I look at say my group of people that I hang out with or my face book friends and they definitely are not all model material. I certainly am not. If I had to rate all my friends, some would be potential model material but some of them would be way at the other scale based solely on outward appearance. And if they are going to hold the women to that standard, what about the men. I dont think bradford anderson is someone I want to see naked in playgirl LOL. nothing against bradford, I just dont think he is as hunky as say brandon barash or steve burton and yet I love the character of spinelli. So if tiic recognize that bradford has just as many fans as brandon even though brandon is more of your typical soap hunk and they are willing to write for him, why not write for the female characters regardless of what they think of their sexual desirability? But then again who am I fooling, the only time women on this show get story is when they get shot, raped, kidnapped, or otherwise attacked or when they are grieving the man that they love being shot. What happened to the promised alexis story? what happened to the sams dad story? Ethina? those were the stories I wanted to watch not franco raping sam and ethan finally confessing his feelings to fake Kristina.
EET, I agree.
EET-You make an extremely important point (at least in my view) about "looks" being used to define what a character does or doesn't do within the fabric of a daytime drama. That TPTB seem to prefer a more "mature" Kristina says to me that:
#1)They would rather have the "Whole package" already available to "plug in" as it were in LA's role and #2) They have a distinct lack of knowledge, talent or time (take your pick) with regard to actually "writing" for the actors who have created these roles. That LA is younger, I have come to believe, should not be an impediment to her being in a romance with NP's Ethan. If the story was sensitively written, you would have so many people clammoring for this type of pairing and GH would reap the rewards of demographics and viewership. Alas, if rumors pan out, we'll never know what could have happened. But that's the thing we've come to expect from this bunch. On a personal preference, I know that some don't see DZ as attractive by soap standards in his pairing with JMB. I think that's exactly why he works (for me), in this role, because he strikes me as visually "real". If he was, say a "body" like any of the Ford brothers over at OLTL, yes, it would be lovely to look at, but not as believable.
But that's me. ...
@laison4real-I definately understand your frustration and can see your point of view. I have always sensed TPTB do not really favor or care for Becky for whatever reason. That to me is why she is always being shafted.
To also add a comment to what EET posted, as the saying goes, "beauty is in the eyes of the beholder." I think each of the women mentioned are beautiful. Not to be mean, I personally don't think Laura Wright is anywhere near beautiful, but she is a strong actress. Apparently TBTB have a reason for utilizing her at every chance on GH. I think there are reasons other than beauty. If I am not mistaken, Ethan and Kristina were to be somewhat of a replica to Luke and Laura. Genie Francis was extemely young when she started at GH, and all the while her character was married to Scotty, and then the relationship with Luke. There was a wider gap in the personal age differences between Tony Geary and Kin Shriner. Lexi is only has a 4 year age difference between her and Nathan Parsons. So to me, the whole idea for a recast under this generality, is ridiculous. I also hate that Lexi may feel somewhat "inadequate" because of her small stature going forward. The rumor that I have heard, which is with a grain of salt, is Branford Barash is against a possible triangle between Kristina, Johnny, and Ethan. He has expressed he feels Lexi appearance is too young and has been adament about not being on board. Apparently this is the direction they were taking the story. ( I would assume, Johnny would become interested in Kristina, and Ethan would start to have a strong reaction and decide he has had feelings for Kristina all along. This is just my idea of where the story may lead).
So it's official Lexi is out at GH, she just confirmed on twitter not too long ago, I can't believe they would let an actress with her level of talent go because she looks young, at the rate GH is going, I'll be watching it online right after the never should've been cancelled OLTL. I wonder which asshat (excuse my language) was responsible for this decision and what kinda statement they'll release and if it will be similar to the crap spewed in the statement they released when they tried to fire Becky.
*Jason and Sam's honeymoon is facing an unforeseen threat ... and we're not talking about Franco. ...Okay, not JUST Franco. He's still there, stalking Jason and Sam and setting up his next predatory move. But the bigger problem for Jason and Sam this week is the hurricane that is bearing down on them. Hurricane Carly. Yes, look for Carly (and Shawn) to invade JaSam's tropical paradise.
*Jason continues to have fugue episodes.
*We've seen hints of it in recent days, but this week, it's official: Lisa is back! And if you thought the coma would make her kinder and gentler, you're in for some bad news. She's even crazier (and deadlier) than ever before. And when the Scorpio-Drake families gather to celebrate, they have no idea Lisa is about to strike.
*With Luke back, the Spencers are in turmoil again. Look for a father-son confrontation between Luke and Lucky this week. In fact, Lucky's in for quite a few conflicts as he and Elizabeth clash big time. Has Lucky's downward spiral cost him the woman who's been there for him the longest? And could Luke and Tracy be finished as well?
*Steve can't keep his past buried much longer.
*Spinelli wants to explore Wyndemere.
*Sonny tries to juggle the twin demands of fatherhood -- can he keep Michael from getting in too deep with the mob -- and his own personal life. With Sonny and Kate getting closer and closer, will his dangerous lifestyle once again be an obstacle?
*Kate, Sonny and Michael end up in the panic room with the drugs.
*All this, plus Kristina gets the most shocking news of her life.
@GHteenybopper-I just saw this on Lexi's FB as well. This is some straight up bullsh**, and I will be calling the comment line and sending snail mail as well. Lexi states she taped her last scenes for GH yesterday.
Jasam-Thanks for the "tidbits". This is such sad news and I didn't think it would hit me as hard as it has. I guess your daughter may not be watching anymore. Unless they put Molly on more. The way they're going the younger fans they covet won't tune in because they can't relate to who and what they're seeing. LA will land on her feet and come up smiling.(Her film deal is proof of that.)...till next time...
Ill add this too - one thing I dont think tptb understand is the next generation of viewers is YOUNG female girls. YOUNG female girls would LOVE the idea that it is possible for kristina to get a guy like ethan JUST like young girls loved the idea that someone as young as laura could land a savvy nightclub owner.
When I was 11 I wanted to marry Shaun Cassidy or Andy Gibb, but while I may not understand celebrity, I certainly understood "too old". I had crushes on school teachers, my guitar teacher, the junior high school kid that mowed our lawn etc. etc. Laura coming along appealed to me in part because of all those impossible crushes. Sure middle american moms might not like it at first, but thats why the story should go slow, should refrain from being too sexual and should stress kristina a. communicating with her parents and b. her age (not just by saying it, but also by having her working or other characters saying to alexis and/or sonny dont forget shes an adult just because she LOOKS young, where would you at that age? kind of thing) Those aspects were key in the luke and laura love story - remember they didnt sleep together ONCE while they were on the run together so we saw them as a couple for a long time without them being intimate or sexual. If they did ethina they way they did l&l, parents wouldnt balk, but GIRLS would eat it up with a spoon just like young girls love the girl on twilight dating a guy 80 billion years older than her.
Jasam--Thanks for the spoilers. EET, you are absolutely right. Younger viewers, and the stories they want to see, bring life into these shows. I like good teen stories, and I've said that before. Like MANY here, I got hooked in high school. I'm sad and pissed about the Lexi news.
Off topic: is anyone having trouble changing their avatar? I haven't been able to upload a new one for a while. I'm afraid to delete the one I have for fear of having nothing.
Um yes on the avatar. I tried to replace my sam/kelly in a white wedding-esque dress to one of my davis girls in a charlies angles pose and its a avi Ive used before but no luck in uploading it. BUMMER.
Oh EET, Andy Gibb and Shaun Cassidy. Be still my beating heart! LOL
I am sad about Lexi. I truly think she has wonderful chemistry with NP. Why would you fire an actress when their story is about to take off?
Raven has alluded to the fact that there would be a HUGE firing this fall. I still wonder if MB is out. To be honest, I don't feel like his storyline since Brenda left has been that great. I'm blah about Sonny and Kate. I don't dislike nuKate, but I adored MW. The spoilers for Sonny have been minimal to be honest. I feel like the writers are setting Michael up to take over.
I cant imagine jason allowing that. Michael vs. Johnny?? Johnny would eat michael for breakfast.
AG/SC - I knew I adored you for a reason!!! We shared dream boyfriends LOL
I just think young girls LOVE the idea of a young girl/older guy story. I STILL wish I knew how to make a move when I was just shy of 15 because there was this super shy boy on the block that I thought was SOOO cute and I knew he liked me but he was almost 19 and it was clear to me that he was debating if he could get away with it. He would take me out dirt biking or he would teach me how to drive in the undeveloped sub across the street and then suddenly things would get a little to quiet and he would freak out and say he had to go home. If I had a time machine I would go back to me at that age and tell myself to pull a Kristina and chase him the way K chases ethan. LOL
And like you said, I dont think ANYONE likes Ethina because its lukes son and sonnys daughter or their would be more lante fans. The fan base is solely because of the chemistry. It IS just like skate. People liked skate because of MW and Mo's chemistry, not because viewers were clamoring for sonny to romance some gal from bensonhurst. If that was the case, again, Solivia would have become popular when kate was dating coleman.
EET-Loved your sweet little tale of teen "unrequited love". Sounds like TPTB could/should take a page from your "history"! Maybe you could start your own forum for "stories for soaps from our own experiences". Someone on the writing teams could snitch one and "weave" it in to the fabric of the shows that are left. Of course, we'd probably have to assume they'd mess it up...On second thought, forget I said anything about this. Just write your own. You should reap the rewards, not those who are decimating GH(or any other soap for that matter)...
Swan LOL I dont even know if its "my" story...I think ethina works because the teen in love with the older boy is fairly universal. Maybe its not the boy down the street, but its the rock star or the teacher or the neighbor or the mentor...and usually I think it amounts to nothing and probably shouldnt amount to anything BUT watching it play out in fantasy is a totally different thing. I think young kids would eat it up so the idea that viewers will tune out because of lexis apparent age is just silly. To me, if anything, her youth is an asset..as someone mentioned on the main pages its akin to luke and laura or even robin/stone or robin/jason and of course original sonny/brenda - all uber successful pairings. I think the rumors that tiic are doing things to purposefully sink gh is sounding more and more legitimate.
@Swan-Yes, my daughter is very dissappointed with Lexi leaving the show. She is 13 and so relates to Molly. They are both bookworms. Also, she also has a crush on Nathan Parsons and was living vicarously through the Ethan and Kristina storyline. This is normal and to be expected at her age. I started watching soaps around 8-9 because my babysitters watched it. 12-13 is probably the age, alot of girls start watching soaps so to attract their attention, you need a storyline they can relate to. With Lexi gone, and I am hearing Molly too, who on the show is left for her to relate to?
Just putting an opinion out there. I really want Lexi to exceed elsewhere, but if another soap such as DOOL would be interested in Lexi and or Haley, and maybe even snatching NLG, that would be a smart move on their part. I remember when Rick Hearst was on DOOL years ago. I used to run home during high school to watch DOOL. It was a must see TV for me. DOOL was so good back then but once I started college, I stopped viewing the show. Since the DOOL 2.0 I watched a couple of episodes recently. I honestly did not really care for the young actors/actresses on the show. They just did not grab my attention. As I said this is just my opinion, as I really don't know much about the current landscape of DOOL. But they could really snatch up a lot of GH viewers.
I will miss LA as Kristina. I definately love the Davis girls as they are, and if some of the other rumors are true, I won't like KA from OLTL as Krissy if she comes on. If we end up with JPL as a recast Dillon, we had better not end up with FF in any way, shape, or form because if that happens I will turn off my beloved GH I've watched since the late 70's and never watch it again.
