    "Thank you all so much for your support and loyalty. You are my life long family and I cannot express how much I appreciate each of you. You have really made my experience here on 'GH' a wonderful adventure. I wanted to fill you all in on the details and try to answer some of your questions.
    I am not returning to 'GH' after August. This is not a contract issue, I have been written off the show.
    I do not have any information on potential Daytime opportunities.
    Lastly, I have no ill feelings towards any of the staff or crew connected to the show or the network. I will miss everyone dearly.
    Love, Kelly"

    Good luck to a wonderful actress. However, as is GH PTB wont, they took the character too far.
    She should have been nominated for an Emmy. After all, she carried the show for months, but, unfortunately, her storyline was mangled and TPTP took the character over the top to parody. And then they just dropped her storyline entirely. I'll bet she is sorely disappointed--as I am, the viewer.
    I guess the poor actress is plain tired.
    Here's hoping she will find a wonderful "fit" on a wonderful show. She deserves success

    Im sorry to see someone lose their job but i am thrill that she is leaving. The entire kate/connie story was crap from beginning to end stop watching for a long time because of it. Bring Vanessa Marcil back for sonny

    I think this is directly related to the horrible snub Kelly got by not being nominated for an emmy. If any actress deserved an Emmy more for their character portrayal and acting ability, Kelly should have won. The believeability of the DID issue was great.

    Please no Vanessa Marcil, that love story is played out. I am tired of the crying and Sonny apologizing for his life to her. That story has ran its course. Olivera all the way.

    Although I didn't care for the story. I do believe Kelly Sullivan did a great job playing a person with DID. She differently deserve to had won an Emmy for her roll on GH.

    I meant Olivia

    Darn! I was thinking her and Nikolas could hook up. I believed the actors would have such great chemistry.

    Best of luck Kelly! You're one of the most talented actresses on General Hospital. To be able to successfully play a multiple role (which is a lot of work and you pulled it off wonderfully) and keep General Hospital interesting is a major accomplishment. GH won't be the same without you and is most likely on the same road as AMC and OLTL. I know your talent will take you far so hang in there girl!

    Kelly, maybe you should go the same route as Steve Burton and get a role on Young and the Restless. That show could use a great actress since Michelle Stafford is leaving and there is a shortage of love interest leads for Jack Abbott, Nick Newman, Adam Newman, Kyle Abbott, Billy Abbott etc.....
    Just a thought.
