Maya will make her Port Charles debut on March 31. According to the article, Maya will be romantically involved with a Spencer (Think the one with the funny accent!). No word yet on when little sister Zoe, who is rumored to be slated for Michael (Drew Garrett), will make her way to town.

Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin February 11, 2010 WOO HOO. I think this is great news. More Q’s, added diversity, and a love interest for Ethan. Sounds good to me. Log in to Reply Ravennite613 February 11, 2010 Wow I was getting worried that TPTB changed their minds. She is stunning, let’s hope that the casting dept continues their successful track record. Poor Michael the boy is never gonna get any Log in to Reply JackieG927 February 11, 2010 First off, read the title and started laughing my butt off. God bless Designing Women. Second, she’s very pretty. I agree with the above poster in that they hopefully actually use her in a storyline that’s worth something. I’ll even go as far as to add "a storyline NOT involving the freaking mob and Sonny "I Can Do No Wrong Even When I Shoot My Own Son and Blame It On The Fact That He’s A Cap" Corthinos. I know at some point it’s gonna cross paths but a girl can dream right? Log in to Reply josser February 11, 2010 How about her as a love interest for Lucky? If she’s in medical school, she’s in her mid 20s. Ethan is supposed to be 19/20. Too bad GH couldn’t create a role for Victoria Rowell as a Ward. I’d love to see her fight with Tracy for control of ELQ! Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens February 11, 2010 First off, read the title and started laughing my butt off. God bless Designing Women. *** :p Glad you got the reference! I was just about to say, if the PC police took offense, blame ME, not Jillian, I changed her headline. LOL Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 February 11, 2010 Her and Ethan, Naw, LOL. But I can’t wait because GH has been lacking in the diversity department around forever. Log in to Reply discodan February 11, 2010 I kinda wanted some Ethan/Kristina action… I originally thought that Maya was gunna be Lucky’s distraction… Log in to Reply ladyofthelake February 11, 2010 She"s pretty. PC needs the Wards around. Wait, wouldn’t Zoe and Michael be related. I’m not sure who these Wards would be related to, they are Edward’s granddaughter"s or great granddaughter’s? I forget. Log in to Reply rebecca February 11, 2010 I think she is there for Lucky, not Ethan, Ether way it should be good. Log in to Reply troymcclure February 11, 2010 She is pretty. I hope she can act but I trust the GH casting dept which is the best in the business. I want her with Johnny, they would be hot together. Log in to Reply ghOLTLDaysfan February 11, 2010 OK I know that Maya is Justus’ daughter but who is her mother ? I assume Zoe ain’t Justus’ since that would make her michael’s cousin right ? Log in to Reply Miry February 11, 2010 I am VERY excited to finally see some color on GH again. She is pretty… I just hope she can act! … & I am not sure about Ethan. I am going to need her to be paired with someone I actually care about, like Lucky or Johnny. Log in to Reply Mobb Ish February 12, 2010 I’m hoping Sonny has a bi-racial son somewhere in the world and he comes and snatches her up…Hopefully she will be NOTHING like Lily Winters! As a black man I have no problem with her dating out of her race, just don’t make her Lily plz GH or I will never watch this show again, no matter who Sonny & Jason are Mobbing On! Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott February 12, 2010 Great to see some ethnic diversity in Port Charles. Hate the title of this article though. I didn’t watch Designing Women (I was a Golden Girls Queen) so I didn’t get the wink. Log in to Reply FaisonFanInTexas February 12, 2010 Wow, she’s very pretty! I can’t wait for her to come on…we need people not related to Sonny! LOL Log in to Reply LovesDog February 12, 2010 I see Black people. I hope she gets with Lucky.

Why couldn’t her vajayjay be Malcolm X?! Log in to Reply shede80 February 12, 2010 Its about time why don’t they put her with Lucky come on GH take some chances Log in to Reply BigDede February 12, 2010 BLACK PEOPLE!!! OMGoodness, I get to turn on GH and see someone who actually looks like someone in my family Now I keep reading all these rumors. I originally read Lucky would be running around her than I read (please let it be true) she was going to hook up with Johnny. That she was going to help Johnny when he gets hurt. Johnny has to get away from Booblivia, get him with the sista. Also Maya isn’t Justus’ daughter. Maya is suppose to be Justus’ sister’s daughter. Zoe is her half sister. Zoe is her father’s daughter by another woman. Zoe isn’t related to the actually Ward/Quatermaine family. According to what Edward said when he was talking about the Wards. It’s just like when Keisha came. She was the Ward’s cousin but she wasn’t related to the Ward/Quatermaine side. Log in to Reply troymcclure February 12, 2010 I wrote this on another board but pairing someone with JJ’s Lucky isn’t easy since he looks like he is 12 (and I LOVE JJ) I’m still hoping that maybe initially she will be testing the waters with Ethan and then move on to Johnny since I believe Ethan and Kristina will be the go to pairing for Ethan. Log in to Reply Bourgeois Nerd February 12, 2010 Oh, goody, more Qs for the next serial killer to murder! And they’re young women, so it’ll be extra-graphic. (I wish I wasn’t being more facetious than I am.) Log in to Reply BigDede February 12, 2010 She looks like the kind of girl who would slap Lucky if he starts with the crying. Log in to Reply purplebraids February 12, 2010 AHHHHHHHHHHHHH Log in to Reply sb_fan February 12, 2010 Ok…I’m very excited to hear this. I love GH but they are seriously lacking when it comes to people of color. (Lainey, Kelly, anyone?) Log in to Reply keanna February 12, 2010 WAIT A MINUTE!!!!!!!!!!! First, GH is getting a new opening and now we are going to have black people on the show. Hell has frozen over. She is very pretty, and I agree hopefully she can act. Let’s hope they actually use them. But I am not worried GH has knocked it out of the park lately in their casting. Log in to Reply tallytofu February 12, 2010 LOL at the headline for this post. Love the Designing Women reference! Now let’s hope the writers actually USE the new Ward girls. Log in to Reply Eleonora87 February 12, 2010 [quote=BigDede]She looks like the kind of girl who would slap Lucky if he starts with the crying.[/quote] LOL Dede i love this comment. His crying is too much already Log in to Reply THEBEST February 12, 2010 She’s beautiful, but we’ll see. She’s black and a Quartermaine. That doesn’t fair well in PC. Log in to Reply Mione134 February 12, 2010 Ethan should be paired up with Kristina once Keifer goes away. Give this beautiful woman Lucky. He deserves some fun in his life. Log in to Reply TC irene February 12, 2010 Let’s hope GH actually uses her the last time they said a Black woman was going to be on GH it was that broad who did nothing but shave Franco and had just enough lines for us to know she was British. Anyway, Lucky has a history with the Ward family as they were tight with the Laura and the Spencers so I hope she is for Lucky instead of this fly by night Spencer Ethan.Plus won’t Liz just drop a brick if Lucky has his broken heart mended by a woman this gorgeous. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 February 14, 2010 As a black man, I am all about them bringing some black folks back into the fold, but I am STILL waiting to see more of Monica, Bobbie, Tracy, Helena and Diane…..and LESS of Lulu, Maxie, Sam, Robin and Patrick!!! By all means, bring on the black people, but give me more of the people I actually WANT to see, and less of these annoying-assed characters that I have been waiting for Bob Guza to completely FORGET about!!! To hell with giving soap characters amnesia, can we give the head writer amnesia?????? And speaking of characters that we need to bring back–WHERE the hell is Laura Spencer??? One of her son’s has turned into the biggest man-whore in Port Charles, the other one is having a nervous breakdown, and her daughter has turned into a crazy little bitch that does nothing but yell, scream, make threats and try to intimidate people!!!! She needs to come back and issue out ass-whoopings to her kids……Joe Jackson-style!!!

Yes, Laura needs to come back and give some butt whoopings to her kids and to Luke too. Guza is a hack and needs to be in the unemployment line. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 February 15, 2010 Siomonstuart2003—I appreciate the shout out, and I am glad you like my style. I don’t believe that Guza should be fired, but some of his decisions do confuse me from time to time. Even with all of it’s flaws, I will still take GH over AMC and OLTL ANY DAY of the week…. Log in to Reply Revafan001 February 15, 2010 Hold on i’m confused.. on the Soap Central Family tree for the Q’s/Wards and it says nothing about a Maya or zoe… Log in to Reply FaisonFanInTexas February 16, 2010 Revafan That doesn’t mean they aren’t coming NOW! You know how they add characters to the family tree! LOL Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
