Who Should Starr Manning be Paired With on General Hospital?


Soap fans love their couples and we here at Daytime Confidential are no exception.  The moment news broke that Starr Manning (Kristen Alderson) is on her way to Port Charles my DC podcast co-host Regan Cellura and I began discussing which GH'er we’d like to see her paired with.

Regan doesn’t want to see a Michael (Chad Duell) and Starr pairing, but I think the idea is intriguing. Primarily, because of the drama it would create between their parents. Then we started thinking of other GH characters Starr could be paired with. Johnny (Brandon Barash) and Starr immediately jumped to mind. Our discussion continued, with names such as Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) and Matt (Jason Cook) popping up. It will be interesting to see how Ron Carlivati works Starr into Port Charles,  but we’d love to hear your thoughts! 

Who would you like to see Starr paired with on General Hospital?

    I can see it now: Michael knocks Starr up, intensifying Blair and Carly’s feud and suddenly making them both GRANDMOTHERS to the same child. And the look on Carly’s face the first time some baby calls her “GRANDMA”!!! PRICELESS!!!

    Considering Kristina was told over and over she was TOO YOUNG for Ethan, then Micheal is the only choice. All the other men are older than Ethan. Starr is the SAME AGE as Kristina!!

    It’s pretty ridic for her to be paired w/anyone because she shouldn’t be in Port Charles, she should be in Ireland w/Cole Thornhart, who she just admitted loving and her daughter Hope. Not shtuping a mobster, the son of mobster, a crappy excuse for a doctor or the worst and most annoying character to infiltrate this soap in the last decade.

    Honestly, Kristen Alderson is one of the worst actresses in daytime and I wouldn’t wish her on anyone. I was hoping and praying that they would recast her. I can’t believe she is coming over. The actress who played Daniella was way better.

    So many men, so little time for Starr… but I definitely think she is going to be paired with Michael. No way are they going to pass on Todd/Sonny and Blair/Carly rivalries…

    I just don’t think Kristen Alderson is a very good actress, sorry. She was best as a supporting player during The Tale of Two Todds. Starr Manning was ruined the moment she was forntburnered, saddled with a poor ‘Romeo & Juliet’ knock-off romance and a child before 20 years of age! I really enjoyed Starr when she was six but Kristen Alderson cannot drive story or effectively emote. Her attempting to cry this past week on OLTL was cringe-worthy. The gentleman who played James out-acted her in today’s episode. The actors that played Crazy Hannah and the recast of Cole acted circles around the poor girl. I suspect that when Starr gets to Port Charles she will be paired up with Michael. What else is there to do with her? I hope that she mainly counsels her far more interesting parents.

    @Dyllan – Kelly Missal (Danielle) is a very good actress.

    Starr & Michael gets my vote, their new couple name can be Marr, not to mention Todd would not want Michael anywhere near his daughter and Blair would not want Michael with Starr either and Carly would not want Starr with Michael, Sonny would probably be happy for Michael, and Starr’s daughter Hope and Josslyn can be playmates

    I actually thought the girl who plays Dani was a better actress than KA. And I agree that Eddie would of been a good Morgan.

    I guess if I had to choose I’d go with Michael.

    Starr & Ethan as a couple, that would certainly be very unique and interesting especially since Ethan is Luke’s son and considering Starr is Todd’s daughter, Luke and Todd would then interact, and then Ethan he can actually bond with Starr’s daughter Hope considering Ethan has 2 nephews Cameron and Aiden, so Ethan would bond with Hope almost right away and Starr would then interact with Luke, Lulu, Lucky, etc.

    Or Starr & Johnny imagine if they became a couple

    Anthony Zacchara and Todd Manning would interact, and Todd would definitely not want Johnny with his daughter and Anthony would not want John with Starr Manning of all people

    Anthony would even try to kill Starr

    Not to mention Starr would interact with Anthony Z if her & Johnny became a couple

    And Blair would interact with Anthony as well

    But Starr her best option right now would be being with Michael Corinthos III in terms of storyline-wise

    The most obvious choice is CD’s Michael. All of the others are too
    “mature” from a chronological standpoint as well as “life experience”. (Even though she is a parent to a young daughter.) If Spinelli were 5-7 years younger it might work, but as currently written he has no real
    “family”/core ties in PC that would play out for story. If NP is leaving as rumored that pairing would be a non-starter… 0:)

    I, too, would like to cosign alexisfan’s quote. Pairing Starr with anyone older than Michael would be crazy, IMO, when you kick off a stellar actress because she isn’t old enough (read: sexy) to play these guys’ love interests.

    Ick, already…..

    What are these comments about Starr and Sonny. He is old enough to be her father, and I dont think thats even a joke or a funny thing to say. Sonny would never do that and its yuck to even think about.

    One more OLTL character that I would love to see on General Hospital from One Life to Live is Aubrey Wentworth/Christine Karr, Terri Conn in General Hospital because I believe that if Aubrey the character of Aubrey that is came to Port Charles to start over again, Aubrey can really make a life for herself in Port Charles starting anew somewhere else away from the memories of Joey and Rex, and with Aubrey in PC, she can find real true love here with any one of the men like Lucky, Jason, Ethan, Johnny, Steve, you name it the list goes on, not to mention I love Terri Conn

    Aubrey is an ex-gold digger, ex-con artist, so with her in Port Charles Aubrey can work at Kelly’s or even at the Metro Court Hotel

    Aubrey and Carly look so much alike, what if Aubrey is Carly’s half-sister on her dad John Durant’s side of the family, John could have had another daughter and that daughter being Aubrey

    Not to mention Aubrey has some similarities to a young Carly

    I’m not voting for any of these men because I don’t want to see her with any of them. She’s only 18, maybe 19 now so she’s way too young to be involved with Spinelli (late 20′s), Johnny (30+) or Matt (35+) and Michael at 19 is totally messed up and was just in a relationship with a woman more than 10 years his senior. Ethan is closer to her age than any of the men listed but I don’t think he’s her type and NP is leaving the show. This is the same problem we had when Kristina was on the canvas and in the same age group. Other than Michael there are no young male adults on the canvas.

    The Sonny and Starr thing is gross, and I have to agree giogio, they’re not funny. Maurice Benard has a daughter around the same age as Kristen, he would quit before he’d have to do that and the writers aren’t that twisted. I don’t like Michael but he’s the only one in Starr’s age range that would be suitable to pair up with her, I don’t know how they are going to figure in Hope in Starr’s stories, but he’s way too immature and too much of a John Gotti jr. wannabe to be involved with someone with a young child, plus Michael and Johnny seem to be into cougars lol

    Okay, who in the world is Kristen Alderson and why is she coming to GH? I have never watched OLTL and have no desire to see an oversaturation of OLTL actors to GH especially at an an expense of someone at GH. So it is okay to fire Lexi and then turn around and hire Kristen? zunfudgeunbeliavable. I can understand Ted King coming back to GH as he has roots on the show.

    Kristen Alderson is decent, but she was indeed left in the dust on a daily basis by Kelley Missal and this past week by both Meghann Fahy(Hannah) and Van Hughes(NuCole, who was exponentially better in the role than Brandon Buddy and would’ve made me actually miss Cole when he was shipped off had he been playing him back then.)

    I could care less. A better question would be: will she the only female character on the canvas not drawn to the loving arms of a serial killer or other mobster goon?

    Starr and Michael have Romeo and Juliet potential with neither one of their families wanting them together but still having them drawn to each other in the process overcoming obstacles to be together like Carly, Sonny, Todd and Blair

    Molly would make a great babysitter for Starr’s daughter Hope

    Todd and Sonny can have a confrontation over Starr and Michael

    Blair and Carly can also have that same confrontation

    I think you all are totally missing the mark. There is only one man on GH with whom Starr would be a natural match. Their spiritual and sexual chemistry would be unmatched. They would immediately be proclaimed the best supercouple in soap history. That man is Edward Quartermane :) 8)

    It might be interesting to see Starr with Johnny, but he has shown a penchant for older women, so I don’t think he would like this whiny teenager any more that he did Kristina.

    If she could clean-up Spinelli’s act, that might work out OK, but she’d probably be just as annoying as he is.

    I see nothing coming of a Matt/Starr pairing. He should stay with Maxie/Kirsten Storms when she returns.

    I’m sure they will pair her with Michael…if they do, maybe they will both stink so much together they will be written off the show. Don’t like either one of them!

    I agree that Micheal and Starr would make an interesting romantic pairing. They sure as hell could bond over their ‘fathers’. I also think Spinelli and Starr would make an awesome dynamic duo (non-romantic). Think of all the mischief those two can reek.

    I know it won’t happen but I want her to stay single. I wouldn’t mind her with Michael though. They have a lot in common, both come from a dysfunctional family and are attracted to danger. Michael is just the type of guy that Starr goes for and he’s age appropriate for her unlike Johnny (I don’t think she would date Spinelli or Matt since they are not emotionally unstable with a violent side).

    [quote=Dyllan] The actress who played Daniella was way better.[/quote]

    I thought she was terrible, her acting mainly consisted of screeching and yelling.

    I can not wait til Starr hit PC. As well as Blair and Todd and John. Inlike some I dont think its bringing GH down I think it will help lift the ratings lets remember that OLTL had better ratings than GH. Alot of that was Because the Mannings. I hope they pair Starr with Micheal. Both have had to grow up fast and know what its like coming from a not so normal family. I would love it if they brought Eddie on as Morgan as long as they dont try to involve him with starr now that would be gross. I just cant wait and after watching the promo I know its going to be great.
