Kimberly McCullough was introduced to followers of the TV soap, General Hospital at the age of seven as the daughter of World Security Bureau (WSB) agents Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) and Anna DeVane (Finola Hughes) on September 6, 1985.

She has been one of the few soap stars to have aged in real-time. She is 33 years old and has been on General Hospital for 23 years with stints of 1985-1997, 1998-2000, 2001, 2004, 2005-2012.

She was the only soap character living as an HIV-positive.

It was announced three months ago by General Hospital on November 21, 2011, that McCullough would leave the show in early 2012 to pursue her long-time dream of being a director.

Exactly three months to the day, February 21, 2012, “Robin Scorpio” died on General Hospital in a laboratory explosion where she was trying to save some lab work medicines that would save Jason Morgan from his headaches.

She will be missed by the soap world.

*Remember we told you a few days ago that Actor Brian Austin Green and Actress Megan Fox were engaged?

Well, apparently they don’t like long engagements!

Nobody thought that Megan Fox would ever get married. But she has left the single life for the married one.

The Transformers star secretly and quietly married longtime boyfriend, Brian Austin Green, in a ceremony late last week in Hawaii.

The couple met on the set of the sitcom Hope & Faith.

The marriage is the first for both. Green has an 8-year-old son with actress Vanessa Marcil formerly of General Hospital, Beverly Hills 90210 and Melrose Place.

Green is 36 and Fox is 24. They had a fairly large wedding but there was alot of security to keep fans and the media away if they somehow found the location out. All guests were told not to say anything about the time, place, date or location upon accepting their invitation.

Green is best known for his role as David Silver on the TV series Beverly Hills, 90210.

He and Fox are said to be spending their honeymoon at the Four Seasons Hualalai Hotel where the wedding took place.

Bowersox said she hopes to perform at a benefit concert for victims of the tornadoes in the fall after the American Idol tour wraps up in September.

The tour will make a stop July 27 in Columbus for a concert at Nationwide Arena.
