General Hospital (GH) already has one same-sex couple. Lucas and Brad. But don’t be confused if you can’t remember them. They’re sort of invisible. There’s also Felix, but he’s only allowed to be supportive – and celibate.
Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) trying to blackmail her professor into a good grade – that’s Daddy’s little girl! – prompted her to come out, but her love life hasn’t exactly lit up the world since. Parker (Ashley Jones) is older, and was Kristina’s teacher. Ethics violation much?
Now comes a suggestion: What about Kristina… and Valerie (Brytni Sarpy)? Valerie and Kristina’s first kiss was supposed to be just a fake to make Parker jealous. But what did Michael Jackson teach us about how a “lie becomes the truth?”
If “Valina” (“Kriserie?) were to become a thing, how would fans feel? Over 10,000 shared their opinion!
No, cry 55% of you! This pairing comes totally out of nowhere. Sure, Valerie hasn’t had a lot of luck with men since she’s come to Port Charles, but that doesn’t automatically mean she’s into women now!
If Valerie just attaches herself to Kristina because she’s tired of being rejected, that’s just asking for heartbreak down the line – for both of them.
They pass the chemistry test, counter 23%, and that’s all that matters when it comes to a soap opera couple.
They wouldn’t be the first odd couple in Port Charles. At least, unlike Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly (Laura Wright), they won’t think they hate each other. And they sure make more sense than Franco (Roger Howarth) and Liz (Rebecca Herbst).

Let’s see how this develops, hedge 21% of the audience. Nothing much has really happened yet. It might work, it might not. Give it a chance. In other words – it’s a definite maybe from the minority vote.
