REBECCA BUDIG ON GH STATUS

I’ve had a lot of people reach out to me to ask me if I’m coming back to the show; I get texts, like, once a week, asking me, ‘Are you going back to GENERAL HOSPITAL?’ In fact, Alicia [Minshew, who played Kendall on ALL MY CHILDREN during her stint as Greenlee] has texted me three times saying, ‘Are you lying to me? Are you going back? Are you back on the show?’ So, Alicia thinks I’m lying to her and that I’m back on the show [laughs]. I’m like, ‘I’m not, Alicia! I swear, I would tell you!’ ”

A Sequence for Liberating Your Soul

My name is Alicia Crysta Easter, which means “noble anointed one of dawn.” (ostre was a Germanic goddess of spring.) I am the daughter of Cynthia Geneva Lawson and granddaughter of Eleanor Cecilia Lawson. I am a yogi, Black woman, teacher, podcast host, candle designer, liberator, Black joy beam, writer, facilitator, lover, sister, and friend. I stand on the shoulders of the 10,000 ancestors who came before me, and I do not take my presence here lightly. I am honored to be a pair of shoulders to stand on for those who come after me. My ability to fully claim who I am came through the practice of yoga.
