A social media spat erupted on Twitter earlier today, between Days of Our Lives newcomer Jen Lilley and General Hospital's Kirsten Storms, both of whom have portrayed the immensely popular character of Maxie Jones.
Lilley tweeted that her new Days of Our Lives character, Theresa “could kick Maxie’s ass with one hand tied behind her back.” When a fan brought the tweet to Storms' attention she tweeted back “Maybe her Maxie. But not mine.”
At some point, Storms' former DAYS and Dirty Soap co-star Farah Fath got in on the drama, which saw, among other things, Lilley claiming she is the reason the character of Maxie wasn't killed off. Read the exchanges after the jump!
The moment Maxie (Kirsten Storms) lost Lulu (Emme Rylan) and Dante's (Dominic Zamprogna) precious cargo on General Hospital and wound up impregnated with Spinelli's (Bradford Anderson) spawn, we knew the end result of Maxie's lying would be Spinelli finding out about his impending fatherhood. Maybe the reveal will happen after the little whippersnapper made his or her appearance, but either way, every Spixie fan is on pins and needles for this baby to reunite Maxie and Spinelli. Add Ellie's (Emily Wilson) resistance to ever birthing a child of her own into the mix, and that girl stands zero chance of ever breaking down a single Spixie soldier. READ MORE
Secrets abound in Port Charles, but what lines will Ellie (Emily Wilson), Sabrina (Teresa Castillo) and Felix (Marc Samuel) be willing to cross to get to the truth? Ellie digs into Maxie’s (Kirsten Storms) baby secret, while Sabrina and Felix try to prove Britt (Kelly Thiebauld) isn’t pregnant with Patrick’s (Jason Thompson) baby. Watch the General Hospital promo after the jump!
The celebration of General Hospital’s first 50, glorious years gave me the opportunity to have a little chat with scene stealer Kirsten Storms (Maxie). At the recent Paley Center event, Storms and I chatted about her exiting pal Julie Marie Berman (ex-Lulu), returning friend Kristen Alderson (formerly Starr; soon-to-be a new character) and Maxie’s two dads, Frisco (Jack Wagner) and Mac (John J. York).
Storms also reveals if she’s filmed with Emme Rylan, who recently started airing as Lulu, and shared some sage words Jane Elliot (Tracy) shared when Berman departed the role.
Daytime Confidential: I know you’re really good friends with Julie Marie Berman. Those final scenes the two of you had together were simply amazing.
Kirsten Storms: It was so horrible.
DC: Now we have a new Lulu. Have you filmed with Emme Rylan yet?
KS: I have, yes, a lot over the last few days especially and she’s a great girl. I know she came from a couple of soaps, so I had mad respect for her when she started. Jane Elliot said it perfectly when I was talking to her about Julie leaving, it’s not that I miss her as Lulu; it’s just painful that she won’t be there for me at work. My work life is around hanging out with her for the most part, getting into trouble, doing those sorts of things with Julie. READ MORE
