Bestinau got that-
“If you’re wondering…”
General Hospital viewers can see Maxie wearing an extra accessory, if you like, in Port Charles, and the character’s portrayer, Kirsten Storms, told her fans why. Along with a photo of her with braces, the ABC favorite stated: “[A] lesson I learned recently… I will be wearing this brace on the show and I thought some of you might be curious as to why I am rocking it. †
Apparently, while taking the trash out, Storms tried to swing a heavy trash bag into a dumpster, but the momentum that followed caused the bag to spin at an injury-inducing speed. The cords then got tangled around her fingers, to which she admitted, “Hey, I didn’t say this was my best moment,” then explained, “If you’re wondering, yes, the trash bag will try to put your fingers in the dumpster too. .”

Her middle finger was hit with the most damage and Storms revealed that her ex-husband and father of their daughter Harper, Days of our lives actor Brandon Barash (Jake) said, “It was karma for all the times I knocked him out.” The co-parents joked some more about her accident when Storms shared: “When I told him I’d called him names in my head many times, he replied ‘And look what happened to your brain’.” For those who can’t remember, the actress had to take some time off last year due to a brain injury, but continued to joke in response to Barash’s comment, “He may be on to something.”
In the end, we’re glad Storms is doing well and hope her finger heals in no time – plus, join us as we send the day star a happy birthday today!
