General Hospital spoilers say that when Kristina Corinthos (Lexi Ainsworth) gets a new love interest over the summer, it’ll be another same-sex romance. Some GH rumors tease it could be gabby gossipy nurse Amy Driscoll (Risa Dorken) that pairs up with Kristina. General Hospital spoilers for summer from Soap Opera Digest promised that Kristina would get a hot romance and would continue to explore her gender fluid love interests. That rumored romance could be with Amy. Here’s why it could happen and why it would be amazing.
#1 Kristina and Amy live together
Did you know that? Recent General Hospital spoilers revealed that Kristina and Amy are roommates, so they’re already near one another. That means Kristina and Amy spend a lot of time together and, let’s face it, Amy is strikingly beautiful. There’s also the fact that Amy is close in age to Kristina, unlike Krissie’s last lady lover Parker Forsyth (Ashley Jones), who was way too old for her!
#2 Kristina hinted at her crush recently
Kristina works at Perks, the coffee shop owned by Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard). New General Hospital spoilers showed us Krissie stopped by Kelly’s and saw Amy with Nathan West (Ryan Paevey). Krissie said she was there to “check out the competition.” What she might mean was Nathan is her competition for Amy – and was not talking about the coffee at Kelly’s. That was a big GH spoilers hint.

#3 Amy and Nathan will not hook up
General Hospital rumors have teased that Amy and Nathan will couple up, but that doesn’t seem likely. Nathan is not a cheater. Nathan and Amy are bonding over the Man Landers advice column she’s writing using his pic as the fake author, but business is all that’s happening. In fact, GH spoilers reveal that Amy will play a key role in Nathan luring his wife Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms) back to town.
#4 Amy’s GH crush rejects her
As handsome as Nathan is, General Hospital spoilers say he’s not the guy that Amy has her eye on. Dillon Quartermaine (Robert Palmer Watkins) is Amy’s real crush, but he’s with Kiki Jerome (Hayley Erin). Amy and Dillon are working together on their Port Charles high school class reunion, but GH spoilers predict when Amy flirts, Dillon will shut her down, and Amy’s feelings will be hurt.

#5 Kristina will comfort Amy
General Hospital rumors hint that when Amy’s down about Dillon rejecting her, Kristina takes a chance on romance and could make a move on her beautiful roommate. If so, no doubt Amy will be stunned but also flattered that Kristina is crushing on her. A first kiss could lead to a stunning new romance. Kristina already told Sonny how cool Amy is and how much she likes her roommate – and soon there could be more!
Kristina with Amy is a bold choice for GH romance
While General Hospital spoilers hint at a possible romance for Kristina and Amy, there’s a chance there could be a backlash. Some fans don’t like Nurse Amy and won’t want Kristina tangled up with her. However, many other GH fans want Kristina back in a romance. Pairing Amy with Kristina would be a bold choice for the ABC soap. First, because it’s a same-sex romance and, second, because Amy is a non-traditional beauty.

Risa Dorken slams back at body shamers
Of the roster of General Hospital cast members, Risa Dorken is one of the few that looks like a “real woman.” She’s beautiful but not stick thin as so many soap actresses are these days. When Risa posted a pic of herself in her GH scrubs, some Twitter trolls called her fat. Risa slammed back and said, “I happen to like the way I look. It’s other people who have the problem with it.”
Risa posted a lengthier response on Instagram to body shamers saying, “My body is curvy, always has been. To me, curvy means so much more than “fat.” It means powerful, strong, feminine, beautiful, and human.” Good for Risa for hitting back. She is beautiful and carrying a few extra pounds doesn’t matter.
"I happen to like the way I look, It's other people who have the problem with it. -Amy Driscoll, #GH On a real note: My body is curvy, always has been. To me curvy means so much more than "fat." It means powerful, strong, feminine, beautiful, and human. As a young girl I always thought I was like everyone else. It was only when ADULTS pointed out that I was "different"….fat. At the time I truly wasn't, But I matured and went through puberty before other girls. Wouldn't it be amazing to raise girls thinking they're perfect how they are?! To build confidence ?! But the constant reminder- the whispering in the halls, how I looked in the same outfits next to other girls, when I got in trouble for wearing certain things, what I saw on TV… it all took an affect on my psyche. Now as a 27 year old, I am learning to fall in love with my body. I work out 5 days a week, I watch what I eat, and the truth is… I'm healthy! But I also Laugh a lot, make a difference in my community, and I'm a daughter, sister, aunt, and soon to be wife. I am more than what the public decides is "beautiful." The dialogue on women in the world is definitely changing, but we need to stop the comparisons, stop trying to define "Normal," stop defining a shape or characteristic as unhealthy, and just be happy. I'm so proud to play a character that's fun, flirty, and sharp-tongued, like so many powerful women I know. Truly honored to be a source of light… and forever grateful that this little girls dreams came true. ???? #selflove #sizematters #curvy #bodypositive #bodypositivity #gh #generalhospital #abcnetwork Photo by the fabulous Jim Warren.
