Oh no! It says she'll be on for months. I hope KS is ok! That's a long time. Do we know, was KS filming for the JaSam wedding? I'd miss her if she weren't playing Maxie in those scenes. But other than that, can't say she's driving/involved in a lot of stories. Wish they could have sent her to Paris for Crimson for the time KS is out instead of a temp recast. Oh well! Hope she gets better quickly.

AntJoan said...

NO ONE ELSE CAN PLAY MAXIE, KS is an original!! I LOVE her as an actress, and wish her a speedy recovery.

My2Cents2 said...

NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What is wrong that she needs soo much time off??? Probably needs to eat & rest.

Speedy recovery.....I ADORE you!!!!

LindaV said...

Gee, I hope it's nothing serious, but 2 months is a long time. She is just adorable and perfect as Maxie and I will miss her.

My2Cents2 said...

Let us know if you find out anything about her illness.

Anonymous said...

Probably rehab...That would be one to two months...most illnesses don't have time stamps.

Mamaspat Ole said...

I loved her when she played on Days her and the girl that played Gigi on OLTL were best buddies on Days togethor.

Love4dogs said...

I liked her on Days. Personally, I liked Robyn Richards as Maxie, but alas, they took her in a new direction. I wish KS no ill will and I've grown to like the NuMaxie, don't get me wrong. Just think they grew her up overnight.

I hope she's not seriously ill.

My 2cents2...I agree...she could use 10 lbs.

My2Cents2 said...

To say 'rehab' isn't nice.
Until we have confirm reports, let's assume between her day jobs she is worn out.

Isn't her show on E about to premiere??

Anonymous said...

When they don't say what’s wrong, it’s big. Kristen is prob. in rehab. Remember when Liz was out for 2 months, they told us what was wrong with her.

sonya said...

Oh no! I hope she is okay. :(

Andrea R. said...

Shame on all of you assuming Rehab. Could be anything. Could be to help a family member, could be surgury she just found out she'll need. So many people hate on others about being thin, but heaven forbid you mention someone put on a few lbs and most bloggers jump our behinds. Some don't realize those gals may have chronic illnesses or just plain great metabolisms.

My2Cents2 said...

THANK YOU Andrea!!!

I couldn't agree more with you.
Why do people like to start milicious gossip??

kdmask said...

I think that if KS wanted people to know, she'd get the word out there. The show didn't tell us about Becky's illness details, her hubby tweeted them. After he came out,the show did issue something.
She will be on "Dirty Soap" soon, and I would think doing PR for that show.
I'm just sad she's gone so long. I sort of wish they would have put "Maxie" on assignment in Paris or something

My2Cents2 said...

Your right Karen, I would have rather seen her on assignment in Paris than to do a replacement.
Though Becky's replacement 'resembled' her, I didn't like the character switch.

I don't see saying she needs rehab as malicious. It takes guts to get help when you have a problem. Rehab could also be for a food disorder such as bulimia or anorexia...it doesn't have to be drugs. The time away fits rehab...and if a spokesman doesn't come out and say what...you can bet it is some form of rehab for some addiction. If it was a some health illness, they would just say what it was.

Love4dogs said...

For the record, I am not hating on her because she's thin. I said she could use 10 lbs. The camera supposedly *puts* 10 lbs on, so if that's the appearance of 10 on that she doesn't have, then yes she's thin.

Hey, it's a lot easeir (in most cases) to put ON 10lbs than take OFF 10 lbs.

And again, I do hope she is not seriously ill.

Adora said...

Is taping for Dirty Soap finished? Could this somehow tie into that show? I am so sad to imagine her gone for any period of time, she really can't be replaced. I, too, wish they would just send her off on business. I will be wishing her a rapid recovery, no matter what the problem is. She's easily one of my favorites.

My2Cents2 said...

She is very thin.
You would have to be blind to not see that.

I would LOVE to be that petite!!

I am sure it is nothing more than with her new show premering, she has taken time off, or she is just plain exhausted.

Hopefully its nothing serious that would require a surgery!!!!!

Bren said...

I wish Kirsten a speedy recovery. She has made the character of Maxie so unique that it is difficult to imagine someone else playing her.

There are lots of "bitchy/bad girl" roles on soaps. But what differentiates many of them is how the actress portrays them onscreen. I like the fact that KS plays Maxie with some vulnerabilities as well as with comedic quirkiness when called for. Even though I loathe the character of Lulu, I enjoy their friendship when written well. (I guess they are actually "frenemies"?).

Whatever the illness or issues are, I will wish her well.

My2Cents2 said...

Is there really another Maxie out there?? NO!!! Nobody could do what KS does as a character!!

LindaV said...

RR was a good young Maxie, but Kirsten to me is irreplacable. Hate to see her gone now that Spinelli is back. I wish her well.

My2Cents2 said...

Hey.......there's an idea....
write Spinelli off too!!!!!!

Patsy said...

No,No No, hope she's well soon. I just love here a Maxie

My2Cents2 said...

Maxie, as silly of a storyline she has had these past 2 years, is one of the best actress's on this show.

If she is truly sick, I hope for a speedy recovery.

If she is out to promote her new show, then selfishly I want her back!

Kasey said...

There's no shame in going to rehab, if that's where Kirsten is. I agree the timeline makes sense and given her history of DUI and mandated AA meetings, it makes sense. Of course we can't confirm it but it's not "mean" to speculate that that's where she is!

My2Cents2 said...

There is no shame in rehab, however, if that isn't the reason the actress is out, then people shouldn't make statements or suggestions of such.

Anonymous said...

If you have listened to her voice over the last 2 weeks of episodes, you might assume that she is having throat problems. She hasn't sounded like herself.

Anonymous said...

Ugh.. I dont like the temp for maxie or the new kate.. They need to bring the original kate back.. As for KS, get well soon purdy gal.. We missing u already

Anonymous said...

Whatever the reason that Kirsten is out, I hope she has a speedy recovery. Whether alcoholism, drug addiction or eating disorder they are ALL diseases and need to be treated just like any other illness. I wish her all the best and hope she comes back REAL soon. I have watched the NuMaxie and I don't like her at all...no offense to her, but Kirsten just can't be replaced. She owns the role of Maxie...case closed

My2Cents2 said...

Or perhaps KS is out for a completely different reason, unknown to any of us. (Which is what I believe)

Hopefully she is starring in a movie, spending time with her new show getting it promoted, or other positive things for this talented actress.

GH with all these contracts coming due, really have no choice but to honor the actors requests now.

maybe a boob job

My2Cents2 said...

'maybe a boob job'

LMAO!!!! Very well could be!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

She is sick. She is not in Rehab! She does not have an eating disorder.

Anonymous said...

Boob job would have been scheduled, not out of the blue

Anonymous said...

SHE HAS A BROTHER THAT WAS DEPLOYED...I HOPE AND PRAY HE IS SAFE AND NOT THE REASON FOR HER being gone

My2Cents2 said...

This leave of absence was scheduled. That is why she can't be sick.

Her brother was going to flight school. I didn't think he was going to Iran.

Anonymous said...

She may be thin because she is sick!!! She may be depressed about her brother. I mean please!!!!!! Rehab and all the other stuff is just spreading rumors and childish. She may want her health issues kept private..Oh and a leave may have been scheduled for surgery or whatever. Doesn't have the be rehab!!!! Get well Kirsten - We will miss you!

Anonymous said...

OMG! what is the big freakin' deal! Some of you guys act like no one in television or Hollywood has ever gone to rehab. It's human nature to speculate when not given information. there's no need to get all defensive over whether she's in rehab or not. no. We don't want to believe it's true but it's realistic in this day and age and especially in their line of work. So..take a deep breath and relax.

My2Cents2 said...

NO Anon, YOU take a deep breath and relax.
You and your 'brilliant' thoughts!

Anonymous said...

I know she said in the past she had a problem with alcohol and had a little legal problem over it but straightened herself out because that's when Lindsey lohan and Britney spears got into a lot of problems and she didn't want to go that route but she could have slipped and wanted to get help. Whatever the case hope she gets well soon and that it's nothing major!!!! We miss you! _

Anonymous said...

I refuse to watch General hospital scenes w/o Kirsten
The new gal seems nice but she ain't Maxie. Kirsten is period. If she is officially replaced. Bye-Bye, GH!

My2Cents2 said...

Anon...No she ISN'T Maxie, however, there are alot worse on the show.
I watch her. She does a great job.
One of the best replacements in a long time.

Anonymous said...

She did get a dui a year ago roughly, rehab(most likely as a court requirement) would make sense. Doubt its any eating problem, she still had her cheeks. I didn't used to like maxie, but since her sis died they've made her nicer, and the temp does look like new kate from the right angle. Never liked kate but the old one was better.

My2Cents2 said...

She got a dwi in 2007.
Quite a while ago.

drtyspo44 said...

Sorry to be judgmental but anyone who is envious of Kirsten's body type is ill. Kirsten definitely needs to put on weight, being thin is one thing...but when your chest bones and shoulder bones are convex you are no longer thin, your sick looking. Why not be more like a Nadia or Jenna? At least that way people can see you. I was a judge fan on Kirsten as a child star, I cringe to see her smaller at 27 then she was at pre-pubescent 13!

I love Maxie {kristen Storms}!! Throughts and prayers are with you.

Anonymous said...

Kirsten Storms does a much better job of portraying Maxie. Maybe they should reconsider sending her character out of the country until her actual return.

Anonymous said...

I love love love Kirsten *~* I hope she gets well soon. I hate recast the new girl is already on my nerves! I fast forward through her whole story. It's so irritating hurry back Kirsten

Anonymous said...

So it's been confirmed by her sister in law that she has endometriosis. Lots of prayers for her!

Anonymous said...

I saw on Dirty Soap tonight that Farrah Fath was talking on phone to someone that knew Kristen she was really worried about her even though they are not talking to each other. But I don't remember who it was but they told her that Kristen had Endometriosis.
Watch Dirty Soap tonight if you want to know more about it.

OMG!! If she does have endometriosis...What a big F'ing brat!! BABY!!

Anon....how did you end up on this board if you DON'T watch soaps?

Anon.....sorry about your dad.
How horrible.

Anonymous said...

Just had a hysterectomy due to Endometrosis and until you have walked in someone's shoes don't judge them! It is extremely painful!

Anonymous said...

I guess endometriosis is different for everyone. I've had it for years & even had surgery to remove what they could. I've never missed a day of work because of it. I'm not sure this is the total story. I do like KS as Maxie & wish her the best & can't wait for her return (soon, hopefully!)

Mamaroni05 said...

It said to see kirsten is off, but its good that she is getting help for whatever it is she is going thru. I love her and her character, and i just started watching her new show on E....and shes amazing!:-) Shes so pretty and seems like alot of fun, im not too fond of her "friend" Farrah, in my opinion she needs to leave Kirsten alone! I know they were friends back when but people change and thats ok!Dont put more pressure on Kirsten she has her own issues!:-) get better soon i miss you sooooo much on GH as i'm sure everyone does<3

My2Cents2 said...

mamaron...Farah is jealous of Kirsten. That is why the hate is so great toward her.

Phyllis said...

I certainly hope if she has a drinking problem that she gets help. She is a beautiful, talented girl and I love her as Maxie on G.H. Noone can ever replace her on G.H. and I look forward to her return.

My2Cents2 said...

She does not have a drinking problem.

She has endometriosis.

Anonymous said...

It is endometriosis, which is a 'female issue.' For goodness sake, stop with the ridiculous judgements.

Depending on the severity, she could lose the ability to bear children in the future.

Hopefully, this will not be the case. Please give her a break.

LG said...

KS is adorable as Maxie--we can only wish her the best no matter what is going on in HER life (emphasis HER.) JL isn't bad, as replacements go. At first I didn't like her, but I think the she has gotten more comfortable with the rhythm of Maxie's patter and she's doing a much better job capturing Maxie's essence. We'll just have to enjoy her as much as we can and then cheer when KS returns!

Anonymous said...

Whatever her real illness is I wish her a speedy recovery. I also want her to know her true fans are behind her 100%. Kirsten don't listen to the BS being said. People always make things sound worse than they really are until the truth is announced.I know when you are ready you will announce to your fans the truth behind all this. In the mean time remember we love you and no one can take your place. May god be with you and comfort you through this.

Anonymous said...

Shame on all of u who think u r So superior with no flaws for picking apart Kirsten and why she is ill
This condition in some cases can be severe especially if medical attention was pushed off because the signs weren't apparent. I am the same age as Kirsten and I can put myself in her shoes if there was a queson weather or Not I could have children. That alone could cause a serious depression Which is a whole nother ball park
God forbid any one make a mistake 1 time in the public's eye.

My2Cents2 said...

What are you talking about Anon??
Other than Anon, who stated that KS was in drug rehab, nobody was disrespecting KS. I see only positive comments for her.

Anonymous said...

The person who called her a spoiled brat for being upset about endometriosis is ridiculous! I'm truly sorry for your dad but that is NO excuse to reply like you did. No matter how bad anyone has it, someone has it worse, but that doesn't make the battles they are fighting any less important. She's young and this disease could mean she can't have children. That's a lot to take in at any age, especially that young. Though there are treatments, there are no cures and she will probably have to have surgery (hence the long MIA from GH). Get well soon KS

Anonymous said...

She is a young girl who probably wants kids in the future. She was prob told she would be better off having a partial/total hysterectomy. That decision alone could cause her to need time off to think. They DO get vacation time...ask Tony Geary! For all we know, she may have already had surgery and needs time to recover. I would not wish this on anyone, esp if they've never had kids. My niece has this & she's a dr and it knocksher out of work as well. Don't judge others bc one day you may end up on the receiving end.

Anonymous said...

Is it possible that an eating disorder, which sometimes leads to fertility problems, can also lead to endometriosis?

Anonymous said...

That definately does not lead to endo, no one actually knows what causes it. I have it myself. Its very painful. Each person has a different situation. Mine could not be removed i have to deal with it the rest of my life.

Sheri said...

Having had many, many surgeries, which ultimately ended with a hysterectomy at the age of 30, Endometriosis is a very serious illness that causes much pain and other bodily issues. It is not related to eating disorders, or drinking or anything else. It is s serious condition MANY women suffer from.

That said, let's chill with the hating, enjoy "Dirty Soap" (thank you Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos)and pray for a speedy recovery for Kirsten Storms. Until you have walked in her shoes it is not your place to judge.

My2Cents2 said...

I want to know if Dirty got picked up for another season. This season should be ending soon.

traylene said...

Geez will this girl never leave GH. She is aweful. Secondly Kate's new replacement sucks too.

Anonymous said...

My husband and I tried for 6 years to have a baby, I couldn't because I had severe endometriosis. I bled constantly and became severely anemic. I was in horrible pain and had to have a total hysterectomy before I was 30.
Each person's case is different and there are laparoscopies that can relieve the pain for some time but it's not a curable condition.
I hope they can take care of it simply and she gets better soon!!

Carolee Faith said...

I hope Kirsten is back soon. The show seems off with out her in there. I also miss her in Dirty Soap where I first saw that she was ill. I hope she takes care of herself. I hope she is back soon. She is missed a great deal. Get better.

Seems like she had a cold for a long, long time~ maybe cocaine was the problem!

Anon..keep your negative, untruthful opinion to yourself please.

renegade_killerbee said...

She has several DUI under her belt. And she has been dating a rock singer. Best best is is she is in rehab for drug addiction.

My2Cents2 said...

She has 'ONE DUI' under her belt.
NOT several.

Also, I am curious why there is no word from her agent. Can you tell me where you read this information? I would also like to read it.
