Word from an ABC higher up points to the possibility that Lexi Ainsworth and Ashely Jones could be back in Port Charles
Don’t Count “Pristina” Out Yet!
It certainly has been quite the roller coaster ride for GH’s Kristina ( Lexi Ainsworth) and her former-professor-turned-lover Parker (Ashley Jones). The duo exited the GH canvas last month, bound for Parker’s new home base in Oregon, after she was given the boot from teaching at Port Charles University when their relationship came to light. However, we may not have seen the last of this couple’s controversial yet sizzling storyline, according to a tweet by ABC exec Nathan Varni and reported by our awesome friends at Soap Central.
“We had hoped to continue the story longer but one of the other actresses booked a big show. Pausing for now but hope to continue later,” Varni said on Twitter in response to a fan query.. Ainsworth is slated to appear on TNT’s Major Crimes; however, we naturally assume that Varni’s word carries a lot of weight and is a veiled answer in the affirmative.
Picking Up Where They Left Off
If the characters do come back to Port Charles, what does their future hold? For starters, chances are slim to none that Parker could regain her position at the university given the circumstances of her departure. Kristina’s relationship with mom Alexis (Nancy Grahn) is strained, and her career prospects seem up in the air since she quit school. It surely will be interesting to see how and where these two end up if and when they again grace our screens!
Controversial Storyline Reaps Praise, Criticism and an Award for Ainsworth
Whatever fans might have to say about the same-sex, big-age-difference romance between Kristina and Parker, and it has indeed been divided between harsh criticism and high praise, the talent of the two actresses who bring the characters to life can’t be overlooked. Indeed, Ainsworth won her first Daytime Emmy this year in the category of Outstanding Younger Actress (she also was nominated in the same category in 2011) largely for her work in this storyline, and for her character’s fiery and passionate portrayal.
Jones, meanwhile is a two-time Daytime Emmy nominee for her role as Megan on Y&R, has guested on many TV shows and has appeared on the big screen as well.
Soap Cities hopes to see these two talented ladies back in Port Charles soon!
