Thanks for the welcome, I really enjoy the posts and seeing if others are feeling the same as I am. I guess our time ( my girls and I) with soaps is going to be over now, too. I just know they won't watch now. I also grew up watching GH and AMC with my Mom, I loved sitting with her watching them and feeling everybit as grown up. I gave up AMC when I became an adult but stuck with GH, Nowadays all I wonder is WHY. But yeah, I loved nothing more than watching soaps with my mom and being part of her grown-up world for 2 hours a day! I thought I was soooooo cool!
Shh don't tell anyone but my big bad Marine son likes GH. He'd die if I told his friends that he likes to keep up with what Sonny & Jason are up to. Although bless his heart keeping up with Sonnys women makes his head spin.Now Kristins... Is it just me being sick in the head or did Michael look at his little sis in a unbrotherly way the other day. I know they are only adopted bro & sis but still....I got the creeps watching that. I think these to might bring life back to the show, but I still want to see the good ole folks... the Q's. Tracy & Luke, Lucky, Liz...
I'm hoping Michael's reaction to Kristina was just shock at how she grew up. To him, it doesn't feel like a year has passed & the last time Michael saw her was preteen Kristina. I'm hoping him calling her a babe was more about the shock of the last time he saw her, she was just a kid & now, she's grown up (in his mind).
I cannot believe how a mature intelligent woman, the DA for crissakes, can be so blind when it comes to Kristina. This is not her first teenager, and she's been around them in the court systems too. She knows what's going on in PC, but heaven forbid her little angel be part of anything. All's she'd have to do is take a good look at her face when Kristina is explaining something. There is such a thing as looking too innocent. I'm afraid she's going to have a rude awakening. It'll probably Sam then Sonny who bring things to her attention and of course she won't believe it at first.
Actually, Kristina is the first teen she's had to deal with on a personal level. She didn't raise Sam. They didn't meet until Sam was an adult, but being the DA, she'd have seen enough of how teenaged girls manipulate adults. Just the way Maxie & Georgie worked Mac would be all she needed. No one did big innocent eyes the way Lindsay Letherman did! But, I think Alexis's reality check is going to be a big frying pan full of runny eggs right in her face! Everyone in town will see it before her. I think it'll be Carly who straightens Kristina out. Just because it'll have to be someone Alexis would hate to owe & that's Carly.
She is just a brat. How can Alexis know what she is really doing when she isn't aorund? I mean yeah it all looks good when Kristina has all these textbooks around, and yes she gets good grades (however, she could be short of a genius, it does happen), but if she isn't a genius, then how can this kid have the time to study , get the grades she gets and really terrorize the town? Just a thought.
Another example of inconsistant writing, although some teens are book smart, but have no common sense. Alexis is an absentee mother but, she's also practically had a lojack on Kristina from birth. She's stifled & smothered her for all these years, without ever really paying attention to her. Kristina's had no preparation (her father might've if Alexis wasn't so paranoid about how much time she spends with him) for how to deal with the temptations that are out there. Alexis just took it for granted that HER daughter wouldn't do those things. She's always looked down her nose at Carly's parenting skills, but pretty soon, it'll be Carly taking her to task for Kristina's bad influence on Michael. I for one, will be cheering Carly on.
ME TOO!!! I can hardly wait.
Since when did Sonny not have visitation? I thought it was just since Michael's shooting. That's only been a year...? Where did that storyline come from?
The big question is when did Sonny's rights to the kids come back? Remember, he signed away his rights after Michael got shot. What, did they forget to get it notarized or something?
It's never been official. Carly has told him that he can see the boys. Don't think Alexis has done the same.
Alexis never made him sign away his rights to Kristina. She's just always (even before Michael was shot) made it difficult for him to see her. Always screwing with Kristina's schedule & not telling him when things were & rather than fight with Alexis about it, Sonny just gave up, which is stupid. Until Michael was shot, Sonny fought Carly tooth & nail for whatever time he could get with the kids, but he only really fought Alexis in the beginning. The saddest thing is that Kristina probably would behave a lot better if she spent more time with him, because he at least pays attention to his kids. If Kristina didn't have Jason keeping an eye on her, Sonny probably wouldn't know anything about her at all. Alexis lives in the same house as her & Jason knows more about that kid than she does.
One would think that Kristina is related to Claudia by her recent actions. She continues to see Keifer even though he slaps her around and is a total jerk to her brother. Her accusing her mother of running Claudia off the road when she herself thinks she caused the accident was ridiculous and a continuation of her showing no respect for her mother.She's totally self-serving, like her father, and will give up anyone at any time to suit her purposes. She is becoming totally obnoxious and unlikeable.
She is suppose to be some sort of great smart mature student and comes across as an idiot in real life matters. Yes i can do without her non honor roll behavior.
I thought it was just me not liking her. I am actually surprised that she even has friends/boyfriend based on her immature and ignorant behavior. She may be "book smart" but she certainly isn't "street smart".
Her "friends" & "boyfriend" are just like her. Keifer's daddy is someone the head of the country club sucks up to more than he does Edward. You're all forgetting that "mother of the year" Alexis didn't raise her kid. She tried to make her a clone of herself. She decided Kristina's life for her, without ever letting Kristina be herself or even figure out who she really is. As for Kristina staying with the abuser, that's in her DNA. It's what got her grandmother, Adela, killed. Yes, Kristina is selfish & spoiled. Alexis has a lot to feel guilty for. She spends more time at work than at home, she gives more attention to her job than she does to her children, & she's deliberately kept Kristina from having a real relationship from her father. All of that combines nicely to make her turn a blind eye to all the stuff Kristina's done. And, now, Kristina's in real trouble because of it.
Yep. What she said. It would have been interesting though if they made Kristina more Cassadine ruthless than spoiled mob princess. She has that DNA as well.
Yeah, well I think a little bit of it is showing with her standing by & letting her brother take the fall for something she already thinks she did. It's really sad to see how much pain this kid is in. She's had to be little miss perfect her whole life & it's finally taking it's toll. I think it's why she's so angry with her mother about the affair with the mayor. Here's Alexis the perfectionist DA, expecting her daughter to be a perfect carbon copy of her, even choosing her college for her. Then, the kid finds out her mother was sleeping with a married man, while she herself was married. Not to mention the fact that Kristina is old enough to know now that Uncle Jerry was a certifiable whack job. Maybe the kid is fed up with the double standard of you have to be perfect because mommy's too busy to deal with a normal adolescent girl, while mommy gets to do who & what she wants, damn the consequences.
I am not liking the way Alexis is being protrayed here. I don't believe that the Alexis we know would expect perfection from her daughter and be totally responsible for the way Kristina is today. That is the problem with aging the kids, none of this was seen, we just have everyone's word for it. It seems that yesterday even Sam wanted to push all of this off on Alexis. Sorry, not buying it. I have yet to see a scene between Sonny and his daughter. That fact isn't helping the situation. I have always liked Alexis and feel that she is being written into a corner without any basis for doing so.The show is becoming too one dimensional. A character is either good or bad with no in between. If Kristina is messed up, and she totally is (all of her scenes have become FFwd moments), then one person has to be at fault. Not the way real life is.
I agree with you about Alexis, she should not have to be put into this storyline with a negative spin. And how dare Carly, acting so self righteous with her. And about Kristina, what a disrespectful child she is. And if bitchy Claudia goes after Michael, (the current storyline looks like it is going that way) then no more GH for me. I felt bad for Claudia when she and Sonny found out about baby boy Corinthos; but I lost sympathy for her the minute she vowed to exact revenge upon the same child she is responsible for putting in the hospital. I hope Sonny finds out very qucikly all her dirty little secrets (wishful thinking), and put Claudia and the rest of us out of our misery. One more item, she threw John out of the room, I hope he gives her the cold shoulder for some time to come. Claudia deserves whatever wrath Sonny brings upon her, and I'm hoping that is soon!!!!
I want Kristina to go get help from Helena . I do not see Christina or any of Alexis's kids having a relationship with Nicholas. I like the way Sam is explaining how to raise a teenage girl to Alexis.
I love NLG, but the fact is the writers have trashed Alexis & this is what's left & what NLG has to work with. I have my own theories about why they are wrecking such a great character. But, as for aging Kristina. They put no thought into it or reasoning for her being like this. The behavior of the spoiled "mob princess" doesn't go with a child who has no relationship with her mob daddy. It also doesn't go with a child who's seen & lived through so much. Look at her childhood. She watched a "murder" when she was a small child & then, was gaslighted by the "victim", she was kidnapped & watched her mother battle a terrifying & very serious disease. These things, in combination with Alexis' sorted love life would not produce a teenager like Kristina is being written. And, with the almost smothering way Alexis was when Kristina was small, she wouldn't grow up to be the life of the party. She might be frustrated & want to break out & do something crazy, but not the way she's been doing it. Unless they are planning a bipolar storyline involving her, it makes no sense for her to be almost like 2 different people.
Amen. Hopefully, she'll stay lost in Mexico for awhile. I know it's too much to hope for that she would come back with a different attitude.
She might. This experince might (should) grown them up a bit.
I have to complain once again about Alexis' parenting skills & her instincts about men. How can a woman who was raised with Stavros & Stefan, by Mikkos, be so incredibly stupid about men? And, Keifer's not even a good con artist! At least, Jerry was an accomplished con man & Ric actually believed his own lies. The fact that he's Mr. Harvard & she's sucking up to his father has blinded her to what a creep he is. That he conned Molly is one thing. She's been sheltered her whole life from roaches like him, but Alexis has been among the very worst of humanity her whole life. There's simply no excuse for this brat to be able to bullsh*t her the way he has. The worst part is she's going to blame whatever that beast does to Kristina on Michael & Jason will have to beat the truth out of him in order to save Michael, or on top of everything else Keifer's done to her, Sam will have to guilt Kristina into telling the truth. Meanwhile, Sonny, who knows the signs of abuse, will suspect Keifer & will fight with Alexis as she defends the punk. Once again, poor Nancy Lee Grahn. This has to be so difficult for her. Alexis, who was once so smart & saavy, is reduced to a mindless twit, being led around by the nose, by an 18 year old spoiled brat who's using her daughter for a punching bag.
Which is why I am about to strongly dislike her AGAIN!!! Just when she was starting to grow on me. Hey Diane, find yourself another road dog. Alexis ain't cool enough no more to hang with you. JMO
I know! Alexis pissed me off so bad yesterday. No one likes this kid. If Jax and Morgan can see, what is her problem?! I've been thinking the last two days how clueless these girls are. Alexis should be ashamed of herself. Kristina didn't want to belive Sam, Jason & Michael about Jerry, and she kept looking at Jason like he had horns or something. And Molly. I know she's been sheltered. She's what 8 ,9, 10? But everybody she was with yesterday was telling her that Kiefer was a bully and she kept saying, "No he's nice. He's Kristina's boyfriend." Give me a break!
Hey, ya'll realize what a tangled web is going on here? Kristina and Molly are cousins and sisters. Molly and Morgan are cousins but its like they're brother and sister because Kristina is Morgan's sister too. Wow. Imagine if Lila had lived. She would have been Kristina and Molly's niece, Kristina's sister and Molly's cousin. These kids have Cassadine, Corinthos, Lansing and Spencer blood. They could turn out to be a very screwed up bunch, just by genetics alone.
Very disappointed that Alexis is being so gullible. It's very unlike her since she tends to trust no one.The only excuse for Molly is that she's a little girl and she's flattered by all of the attention that Keifer pays her. Kristina is just unlikeable. She doesn't believe the people that she should trust, Jason and Sam. But she hangs on every word of Keifer and Jerry. She's totally irresponsible. She has no problem letting her mother take the fall for her. I'm tired of hearing that she's expected to be perfect and live up to Alexis' super high expectations. She's mouthy and obnoxious enough to have told her mother to get off of her back. Yesterday, between Michael's stubborness over coming home and Kristina just being a jerk, I was hoping the Jerry would show up and shoot them both.
Well, it just ticks me off to see all the progress Michael's made & how hard he's trying to control a disorder that he shouldn't even have & all his progress is going to be thrown aside on the word of that creep. Thankfully, he'll have at least 2 people who'll believe in him--Carly & Jason. Neither of them will give up on him. After the stupid way he handled Jason's news today, I wouldn't count on Sonny to realize the truth when it's staring him in the face.Sam was right in everything she said to Alexis today. She was right to remind Alexis & Kristina that what Kristina did was not just joyriding in the car without permission. The fact that she actually had to remind Alexis that a baby died as a result of Kristina's actions is sad. But, I'm beginning to think that Alexis has a strong disregard for other people's children anyway. Especially Sonny's. It's like she resents the fact that he has children with other women. First, she drove Sam into a miscarriage & now, she's trying to make nothing out of the death of yet another one of Sonny's kids at the hands of the dead child's sister. Considering Kristina's mixed up emotions right now, Alexis' coldness regarding what happened could be detrimental to Kristina's emotional health. Not to mention her thinking Keifer's the be all & end all & that Michael's the cause of all of Kristina's problems. I love how truly clueless Alexis is, that she actually believes Kristina's problems started with Michael waking up. The sad thing is Sam & Jason know more about what's been going on in that kid's life than either one of her parents. The only thing Alexis cares about is Kristina getting into her alma mater. It's just very sad that she's gotten to this point.On a positive note, it's about time nuKristina shared some scenes with her dad! It was worth the wait. She did well with MB. It was just as natural & smooth as his bonding with the other new Corinthos kids.
Yep and shoot Jason for not kicking Michael's azz for being stubborn about going home after he (Jason) done got shot by Jerry, trapped under a building, had sex with Sam while injured, etc. And his azz got the nerve to say he's not going home. Oh hell to the no!!
That kid is AJ & Carly's son through & through. Everytime he tries to do the right thing & really believes he is, it ends up causing a disaster. This one was so AJ in logic. I think I caused the death of my unborn brother & put my mother's life & the life of my unborn sister at risk. Everyone thinks I'm hopeless. The best thing for me to do for all of them is to run away. Never did it occur to the kid that his running away could cause more problems. He should stick to being the spoiled heir to the Corinthos & Quartermaine empires & leave the noble acts of sacrifice to the real criminals like his father & Jason. They need all the points they can get with the man upstairs.
It is way past time for uncle Jason to put that boy over he's knee. No not mom or dad...Jason, because he is the one stuck chancing that boy down.While the woopings are being giving out lay a hard hand on Kristinas butt too!!
Say that mygoodness! Say that again and again and yet again!!
I've been noticing things about Kristina that have sent up red flags. I think there's more to Kristina's behavior than just being a spoiled brat. I also think Alexis is about to get the shock of her life. She's always thought Kristina was just like her & worked so hard to make her a carbon copy. But, watching Kristina's behavior & her reactions to things, I think she is very much like her father & very little like her mother. I think that kid is suffering from bi-polar disorder just like her father. Her mood swings & outrageous behavior everyone's blown off as average teen behavior--that's also signs of bipolar disorder & it's one of the reasons that goes undiagnosed in most teens. I'm afraid her dating Keifer is also one more symptom of it, as well. Sam's right. That little girl is going to have a serious meltdown. The worst part is that Alexis could have prevented it by letting Sonny be in her life. It's because he hasn't spent any quality time with her that Sonny won't recognize it until it's too late. Alexis has known that bipolar disorder is an inherited disorder from the time Kristina was a small child. After learning that, she was a fool to keep Sonny away from Kristina & as Sam said, "it's going to come back & bite Alexis in the a**."
Excellent point LJ. Maybe during one of her bipolar fits she'll haul off and smack some sense into mommie dummy dearest. And the next time punk 'a' Keifer raises a hand to her she will do a quadruple kick em where it hurts. After she accomplishes those two things, I hope Mommie DD gets her child the help she needs. JMO
Yeah. Isn't it sad that the only people that seem to have any sense on that show are the kids? Kristina will probably figure out what's wrong with her before any of the adults. I'd love to see her kick Keifer where it hurts the most. But, I'd also like to see Claudia find out what's really going on with her & beat the hell out of Keifer herself. Since the only way they can even try to redeem Claudia right now would be for her to come to terms with the fact that it was an accident & that Kristina is truly sorry & feels awful about it, I'd like to see her take a special interest in Kristina because of how alike they are & figure out what Keifer's doing. Because if Claudia handles it herself instead of hiring someone, it might actually get done right & he might actually get the point. There's also the wild card of Jerry, who's always snooping around, watching people & eavesdropping. Because of his fondness for Alexis, Jerry may just do away with Keifer the minute he sees that guy raise his hand to Kristina.But, as for Kristina's bipolar behavior, I have a feeling it'll get alot worse before her mother comes out of her fog. Are we sure Alexis stopped the medical marijuana?
If she did stop maybe she should start up again. She had more sense when she was high.
I loved Jax's reaction when Alexis started blaming Michael for Kristina's behavior. He more or less said that it's a convenient excuse & that just because she noticed it from when Michael woke up doesn't mean that's when it started or that he's responsible for her behavior.What boggles the mind is that she actually thinks Jax is going to agree with her. Michael's his step-son. He's living with Jax now & Jax knows Michael a hell of a lot better than Alexis. She's truly an idiot. She thinks she's being generous by allowing Michael supervised visitation with Kristina. Never mind that fact that Kristina's the only one he hasn't lost his temper with & he IS Kristina's brother, whether Alexis likes it or not. I just hope Jax continues to stay on Michael's side as Keifer sets him up for something.
One thing bothering me is that a while back Alexis couldn't be BS'ed...she wasn't the type of women a person even her child could "pull one over on". Now Alexis is being tied around that girls finger & she looks stupid. I don't like it. I want the strong Alexis back.
It's sickening! Everytime I see her acting stupid, I feel so sorry for Nancy Lee Grahn. She is such a smart, strong woman. It must be especially hard for her to see what a moron Alexis is turning into. She will ignore Sonny's instincts with regard to Keifer & kiss the brat's rear end even though being what Sonny's been through gave him a radar to spot abusers instinctively. She'll continue to encourage her to see Keifer especially if Claudia agrees with Sonny that Keifer's bad news. She probably has that same built in instinct as well. Alexis has been a complete fool in the whole Brianna Hughes thing from the very beginning, as well. The first thing she should have done was appoint the case to an ADA. Then, instead of hiding her one night with the mayor, she should've held a press conference & announced that is why she handed the case off. That would've prevented Andrea from using it to frame her. She was a moron in how she handled her kids during that time, too. She had no idea that it would be out in the public domain in this day & age? She didn't think the girls' classmates would taunt them about it? How much more moronic will she get?
OK-Something about th eaccident I have been thinking about and please if anyone else has any other ideas, PLEASE let me know, or if I have missed something.SO, the car Kristina was driving had Claudia's paint on the REAR driver's side. Ok. But supposedly she ran Claudia off the road. Never once did I noticed that in the sequence this was happening that a car hit Claudia or make any contact with her vehicle. Also, at the spped in whcih they were travelling tehre was no way that Kristina could have driven off without A) spinnig out based on the location of the paint) B) rolled herself again based on the location of the supposed impact and speed. Now I am no CSI, but the more I thought about this the more that Also, is there any way that someone could have planted the paint (ie Keifer) onto Kristina's car, afterall he did "help" her "cover it up". I wonder if the writers are leaving out details.Again, if someone has any other information taht could help me underftsand this I would appreciate it.
That's true. The car never hit Claudia because she swerved to avoid it and ran off the road.Sam knew it was Kristina because the car was warm, not because she saw any paint, which she would have seen if there was some. Possible she missed it, but I don't think so.I don't think they remember what they write anymore.
When the accident first happened, they said the car didn't actually hit Claudia because she swerved to avoid it. I can't help but wonder if the writers make notes when they write these scripts or if they write the script & promptly forget it. At the time, Kristina had pulled to the side of the road & Keifer pulled up behind her & she told him she was afraid she hit someone. He took her home in his vehicle & came back & got her car. I thought at the time, the accident happened when he was driving & he just let Kristina think she did it as a way to control her. They never went into details of time of accidents, just that they were all on the road in the same general time frame. From the aerial shots, it's a very long road & none of them recall seeing each other on the road at the same time. I know that I can recognize family members' cars when I pass them on the street. I would think they'd notice a familiar car on the road, so I'm going with my original assumption that neither Michael nor Kristina was responsible for the accident, whether it's that creep Keifer or creepier (but oh so much fun) Jerry are responsible.
And they won for best writing.....
Something not right with that...its my all time fav show, but GH hasn't been good let alone great enough to deserve the award. Sorry just being honest.
I like how at the snobby school with all the rude kids Micahel told Kristina it was a little weird that Keifer gave her a private cell phone. At least he is sort of aware of what is going on with her, when he isn't self absorbed anyway.
Totally agree. I think he is starting to grown some Jasonism; that is he's starting to show the ability to figure things out that others may overlook. And one can only hope that maybe that he may grow out of that self absorption stuff.
SInce GH is going Gossip GIrl -esque with having the kids attend private prep school, here's what I'd like to see. Kristina is in the girls' bathroom and overhears the popular Jr & Sr girls making fun of K for dating Kiefer. They say Kiefer can't date anyone in his own grade or anyone who is an upperclassmen because they won't put up with his obsessive stalkerish ways. He even tried the cellphone trick with them blah blah blah. Once K realizes the rest of the school doesn't think Kiefer is as cool as K does, and that her social status is suffering, that she is basically a laughingstock, she will dump him! Kiefer doesn't take the dumping well, starts to get a little violent, and Domte comes along and kicks the crap out of him!
Ditto to every single word Angel.
I don't watch Gossip Girl, but I like your idea!!!
