General Hospital has been missing one of my favorite Port Charles residents since she left Port Charles. Maxie left town to “find herself” after she lost custody of her daughter to her ex, Spinelli. After learning that Spinelli and his girlfriend Ellie would be moving out of Port Charles to follow Ellie’s career dreams, Maxie decided it is time to clear her head. She informed family and friends that she needed time away to find herself and grieve.
What did this mean for Kirsten Storms? It meant that the actress left GH for a brief time for her maternity leave. Kirsten gave birth to her first child with husband Brandon Barash (Johnny Zacchara). This evening Kirsten Tweeted letting fans know she will be returning to work next week!
Just spoke with @valentinifrank Very excited to return to work next week. I wonder what Maxie has been up to on her vacation….
