HomeTagsComings & GoingsKirsten Storms’ Mom: “She is Returning to GH The End of This Month” Jamey Giddens June 22, 2012 Comings & Goings, General Hospital 28 Comments Gotta love the mamas! General Hospital star Kirsten Storms' mom, Karen Storms, has confirmed her daughter is set to reprise the role of Maxie with the family's hometown newspaper, the Orlando Sentinel. She is returning to ‘GH’ the end of this month actually in her role of Maxie. She’s happy and excited to be back,” Karen Storms said in an email Friday afternoon. Kudos to Jen Lilley, who has done an amazing job as Maxie during Storms illness-related absence. In addition to stepping into Maxie's designer pumps, Lilley had to endure countless taunts and mean fan antics on Twitter and other social networking sites — which was totally uncalled for. Here's hoping she lands something special really soon. In the mean time, I am tickled crimson to have Storms on the way home to Port Charles where she belongs! Thanks GAlexander22 for the tip via Twitter! 28 Responses sassysdreams June 22, 2012 YEAH!!!!! THAT’S FABULOUS NEWS!!!!! :party: :party: :party: :party: :party: Log in to Reply doodleynoodle June 22, 2012 Welcome back, Kirsten! Log in to Reply soapjunkie88 June 22, 2012 AWESOME!!!!! Finally. Welcome home, Kirsten. :love: :love: :love: Log in to Reply stubz June 22, 2012 YES!!!! SO EXCITED! Love her portrayal as Maxie! Jen Lilley did a good job though. Log in to Reply Mel_O June 22, 2012 Could not have come at a better time. Now that Maxie’s living with Patrick I REALLY hope they go there with them (romantically), and maybe even do a love triangle with Elizabeth thrown in. Can you imagine how soapy that would be? ETA: Way better than what they have her (Elizabeth) doing with Ewan. Those two have no chemistry at all! Log in to Reply TV Gord June 22, 2012 I hope Lilley didn’t find out about this through the media. Log in to Reply giogio June 22, 2012 Maybe they can recast Jen as Maxie’s twin sister. Like Jessica and Natalie on OLTL. That could work. She was really good. I feel bad she’s leaving, but happy Kirsten is ok. Log in to Reply keanna June 23, 2012 Happy Kristin’s doing great, but I liked Jen as Maxie, hope Frank and Ron hire her for another role. Log in to Reply BellaDonna June 23, 2012 Can’t happen soon enough. It’s just too bad that Jason Cook is already gone and Maxie is going to be stuck with Douchebag, Jr. Log in to Reply SoapyBitch June 23, 2012 I like this addendum to Dirty Soap. Have Kirsten (I always have to scroll up to see if I am spelling it correctly) and her mother reconciled? And for that matter are she and Farrah Fath on good terms again? I hated how they just dropped the one compelling part of Dirty Soap. One of our “characters” is sick and looks like death hunched over. Let’s have her disappear and not mention her again. I expect that from soaps, but a “reality” show… Log in to Reply DaysFan23 June 23, 2012 Noooo! I want Kirsten & Jason Cook to come back to Days as Shawn & Belle!!!! Log in to Reply pumpkin June 23, 2012 WOW—I am so on a different page to everyone else here. I am familiar with Kirsten S as Maxie. But, I found her really annoying. Like watching someone with constant movement. I found the second Maxie a better actress. I think perception is also effected by how long a fan has watched a show. I returned a few years ago. I am not longtime viewer with no interruptions. I just hope she does not use the annoying kid’s voice and mannerisms. I am trying to be open that she will do more mature acting. Like I said I will keep open mind. I am also sure the show knows what they have to do legal wise. Sorry but I can’t help but think that.

Kirsten and Farah are on good terms. Jamie – Has Kirsten confirmed it?

And for that matter are she and Farrah Fath on good terms again?[/quote] I’m pretty sure the drama between her and Farrah Fath was scripted for the show. They weren’t on bad terms at that time. They were even tweeting each other months before Dirty Soap aired. No idea about her and her mother tho… Log in to Reply ahanshew June 23, 2012 I just looked at Kirsten’s twitter timeline and someone tweeted her that story and her reply was “Huh?” This does not sound good.

I feel bad she’s leaving, but happy Kirsten is ok.” Bethany Joie Lenz had a short term role as clone Reva (don’t get me started) on Guiding Light. They liked her so much they brought her back as Michelle Bauer. Log in to Reply The_Moustache June 23, 2012 WHY tho?? Log in to Reply SwanQueen59 June 23, 2012 twb6yz-I remember that “happy accident” that brought Bethany Joie Lenz (now Galliotti/”One Tree Hill”) to GL. Loved her in the Michelle Bauer role with PAS as Danny Santos. As for the “confirmation” of KS coming back to GH, I almost don’t want to believe it until I see something that says she’s taping scenes from those who see her on set. If true, congratulations and welcome back! :bigsmile: In addition, I’d love to see them hang on to JL and have her create another role that she can build from scratch… 0:) Log in to Reply GG78 June 23, 2012 UGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH !! I can’t stand Kirsten Storms as Maxie. She is a horrible actress. I hope they write her and that F’n idiot Spinelli off the show. Enough time has been wasted with him. Log in to Reply GG78 June 23, 2012 Kirsten Storms hasn’t improved as an actress since the time she was on Days. She still acts like an ANNOYING & CHILDISH teen, not a woman. Log in to Reply The_Moustache June 23, 2012 bring back Robyn Richards. she is the REAL Maxie. not KS or JL!!! Log in to Reply Jon June 23, 2012 Robyn Richards sucked in the Kyle story! That’s why she got canned! Log in to Reply Steph570 June 23, 2012 I really want to do a happy dance about this, but I’m worried it won’t pan out again. So I’m cautiously optimistic at this point. I love KS and miss her so much, I think she would do good with RC’s style of writing. She has awesome comedic timing so I hope they give her lighter stuff for awhile and I’d love to see KS’s Maxi interact with Todd somehow. Maybe she could work for him now that Crimson was sold to Todd. Log in to Reply Cyberologist June 23, 2012 I liked Robyn Richards as Maxie then Kirsten’s portrayal “pre-Spinelli” esp in her & Lucky’s drug storyline; never cared for the ditzy blond in that over emphasized Betty Boop voice she became however for her & her fans its good news. I’ll continue to FF through her no big deal. Log in to Reply Lonesome Rhodes June 25, 2012 So excited by this news. I love Kirsten Storms so much. She has been really missed as Maxie. I hope all this turns out to be true. I can’t wait for ABC’s official announcement! Log in to Reply Celestefan June 26, 2012 This is still not true! She is actually in talks to return to DAYS this fall as Bell. Kristen’s estranged mom is only spreading rumors to sell a story. Log in to Reply Jaelyn_96 July 1, 2012 She and Farah seem to have made up because they tweet to each other And she must have made up with her mom because she tweeted he’d mom was taking cAre of her. Love kirsten, can’t get use to Jen. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
