Dear Soaps,
I hear that Alicia Leigh Willis wants out of General Hospital. Is that true? &#151 Cassie

Dear Cassie,
Willis has been starring as GH's headstrong heroine, Courtney Matthews, for more than three years. That's usually about the length of time it takes for a young performer to get the urge to scratch that "contract's ending and prime time's a-calling" itch. Reportedly, Willis wants to try her luck outside of daytime, as departing actress Tamara Braun (Carly) is about to do. But our very-inside sources tell us we should "debunk the theory" that Willis will make a fast getaway in the next few weeks. Please feel free to ask us this question again when pilot season rolls around next January.
