Rumorville:  Gossiping Pens has an article up claiming that Kirsten Storms (Maxie) will be leaving at the end of her contract (last appearing in early 2014) and that Michelle Stafford is on her way to General Hospital:

"While it hasn’t officially been announced yet, we can be the first to exclusively reveal that some BIG changes are coming to ABC’s General Hospital. We were right on the money when we told you about the exit of Brandon Barash (Johnny Zacchara) and we’re right again when we’re telling you that GH’s next exit will be that of Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones.) Coincidentally, Barash and Storms are dating in real life.

So just when will Kirsten be leaving the soapy show? We’re hearing sometime around the end of the year, although her on-screen exit may not happen until early 2014.

This leaves room for Michelle Stafford’s saucy new GH role. Yes, that’s right. Michelle Stafford, who recently announced her exit from CBS soap The Young and the Restless, is switching networks and will join the docs over at General Hospital.

So far there’s no word on when Stafford will actually appear on the canvas over at GH, only that her character will have some sort of connection to ugly-ducking turned swan nurse Sabrina Santiago, played by Teresa Castillo.."

Both women have denied the rumors via twitter:

Kirsten Storms, "Can't wait to get back to work this week.....since I'm (here we go again) NOT leaving General Hospital"

Michelle Stafford, "Men who start gossip have a small pee pee #fact"
