ex-ATWT , Kelly Menighan forever lauded

it took me a long…. long …. long while to get over her as a recast… because of how much I loved Melanie Smith ( 1997-1982

who didn’t love As the World Turns

just one heck of a complete picture… where all walks of life totally encompassed this best of show

Kelly Menighan along with her mother… Susan have always been 2 of my favorite core characters

it was a lovely article in the latest SOD issue to feature a blast from the past.

she’s divorced from Jon Hensley. whodathunk. be that as it may… she has picked up the pieces of her life and MOVED

couldn’t be happier.

PS : I most love how all actors from the long ago past… are just so endearing in how much care – they learned – to respect daytime. knowing full well , like the audience that it was a big arena in which all had to contribute. what class, unity, and love… with all that much more passion that just ignited

it is so nice to hear her laud , respectfully, how much she learned from the cast… and points out Dr. Bob… mom Susan, and Lucinda Walsh… just to drop HUGE names who helped along the way.

she lovingly spoke about Hal Munson

Take Care “Emily”

Ms. Kelly Menighan… be well

At least the people who attended the Creative Arts Emmys dressed for the age & weight they ARE versus the age & weight they want to be.

Mary Beth Evans–so richly deserving. Such a beautiful, fulfilled, loving life she seems to live. Good on her. And it shows in her lovely, expressive face.

DAYS Kate Mansi Learns The Ropes Of Directing A Multi-Cam Soap In New DOOL App Series

She has won a Daytime Emmy for her stellar performances as Abigail Deveraux, but now as many know, Kate Mansi has been spreading her wings as a director behind-the-camera.

Mansi follows on the heels of such fan favorite actresses as: Alison Sweeney (Sami, DAYS), Heather Tom (Katie, B&B), Cady McClain (Dixie and Rosanna Ex-AMC and ATWT) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin, GH) all who have eventually gone on to direct daytime and primetime episodes  of noted and successful series.

In the new DOOL app four-part series, From On-Stage to Behind-The-Scenes with Kate Mansi, the talented young actress learns the rigors and demands of working behind the camera in the fast world of daytime drama from Days of our Lives‘ director (and another Emmy winner) Sonia Blangiardo,who mentors Kate through the process.

The series talks about the current movement of having more female directors getting opportunities and be recognized for their work in film and TV, and the challenges a soap opera director faces every day: from dry block, where they work with the actors, working through their shot lists, and the ensuing problems that can arise in any production on the day to day.  But in soaps, the pressure is really on, because there is not much time to re-shoot things and to get them right.

It’s a Wrap For DAYS Galen Gering As He Shares Special Message To Fans: “I Hope You Know How Thankful I Am To Have Had You At My Side”

Today is a bittersweet day for longtime daytime favorite, Galen Gering.  While on Wednesday; he is celebrating his birthday! (Happy birthday, Galen!), he is also finishing up his last day at Days of our Lives as Rafe Hernandez; a role he has played for the last ten years-plus.

In a heartfelt posting on his Instagram, Galen shared special thanks to all of his fans who watched his during his run in Salem.

Gering expressed: “Thank you all so much for the incredible birthday wishes. I’ve always seen birthdays as a day of reflection, an opportunity to look back at where I’ve been and where I’m going. So, it’s oddly befitting that today also happens to be my last day at Days. Man…I have such great memories from the last 10 years. Onscreen I’ve fought for marriages and fought evil twins. I’ve put people in prison and been imprisoned. And offscreen, I’ve made friendships that I will have for a lifetime. All the while, I’ve been so fortunate to have the love and support of the greatest fans in the world. I hope you know how thankful I am to have had you at my side. With that said, the journey continues and I hope to bring you along for the ride. Thanks for the memories Days of our Lives. Like sands through the hourglass… Love Y’all”
