Kristen Alderson leaving General Hospital – bye bye Kiki Jerome!
Well, it’s officially the end of the road for Port Charles’ hot young couple Michael Corinthos-Quartermaine and Lauren “Kiki” Jerome, as actress Kristen Alderson has not renewed her contract with ‘General Hospital’.
After a lengthy soap career that began on ‘One Life To Live’ when she was only six-years old, the talented young actress made the decision recently to leave the show (and it WAS her decision, as tweeted by real-life boyfriend Chad Duell, who plays Michael). At only 23-years old, she has a lengthy career in front of her.. and I wonder if she will make the move to another soap?
‘General Hospital’ and ‘The Young & Restless’ appear to be swapping actors lately (“we’ll give you a Jason Morgan for a Nina Clay.. and take a replacement Jason Morgan while we’re at it!”).
The departure of Kiki will put two handsome half-brothers back on the market – Michael and Kiki broke up when he found out how much she knew Sonny and Ava’s involvement in AJ’s shooting, and while it looked like she might rekindle things with Morgan Corinthos (the steamy impulsive kiss in the hospital), alas, it is not meant to be.
That leaves the mysterious Rosalie Martinez.. she was interested in Morgan, but ended up seducing Michael – it started at Nina’s request, but was ultimately her own decision. Now that Michael is focused on the new clinic, he will need to hire staff.. and Rosalie happens to be a physical therapist in need of a job. These two will definitely be crossing paths in the near future..
As for Morgan, it would be great to see him embark on a fresh new romance with someone his own age.. and who isn’t in Pentonville right now!
