    SON hasn’t posted them yet.

    Kristen Alderson isn’t much of an actress but I can’t not be happy she won. I just wish she would have won on One Life to Live.

    Happy for Julie Marie Berman and Kristen Alderson!

  • Melanie P.

    I noticed that when Kristen won, she was actually thanking most of her OLTL co-stars instead of GH for which she won. Anyways, you could tell she was so shocked and excited to win.

    KA cannot act!

    She was good as a kid on OLTL but when she hit the teenage years she just got worse and worse to me.
