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

Judith Chapman Confirms She Is Back On DAYS And As Leo’s Mom

Exciting news DAYS fans, those rumblings were true! Judith Chapman will be playing the trouble-making Leo Stark’s (Greg Rikaart) mother on Days of our Lives.  And that reunites Chapman with Rikaart as mother and son.

As soap fans know, they played Gloria and Kevin Fisher on The Young and the Restless for many years together.  Now they will be playing a new mother/son dynamic duo in Salem. But, just what kind of twisted relationship might they have, since Leo has given clues that she was a bad mom?

Soap Opera Digest revealed that Judith will play Diana.   Her first airdate will be on January 29th.  DAYS fans know Judith from her time as Angelica Deveraux from 1989-1991, and most recently when she returned to the show for the 2018 Halloween episode doing a guest-turn as Angelica AKA Satan in Hattie’s (Deidre Hall) nightmare.

Chapman confirmed her arrival on the Salem scene in a tweet today, stating “And I don’t have to keep the secret either Mitch Sandusky! What a GREAT way to start 2019… More articles to come in TV Guide Magazine and Soap Opera Digest… and to be reunited with my TV son.

Diana will have a past with John Black (Drake Hogestyn), which could cause trouble for John and Marlena’s wedded bliss.

So, excited to know Judith will once again tear up the soap-screen, but this time back on DAYS? Comment below.
