The book being published by Simon & Schuster will touch on Chrishell’s Kentucky upbringing, which included periods of homelessness and family’s addiction struggles. Stause will also write about achieving her dream of being on a daytime soap when she landed first on All My Children, as well as her relationship to Justin Hartley, with the message of “how to stay resilient and positive no matter how many times life knocks you down.”

Chrishell also shared on her latest project: “I have always loved writing and it is an honor to be able to tell my story in this way. I’ve had such a crazy life journey and in the process of finding my voice, I’m hopeful I can inspire others along the way as well.”

From Netflix Selling Sunset, to Days of our Lives; Jordan, to Dancing with the Stars, and more, this book should be one to read for Stause’s many fans.

I like Chrishell, I do not watch Selling Sunset but know her from AMC and Y&R. I’ve liked her even more since she was treated so horribly by Hartley. However, although it does sound like she’s had an interesting life journey so far, isn’t she a bit young to be writing a “memoir”?

Well, I’ve read the memoirs of Eric Braeden, Melody Thomas Scott, Jeanne Cooper, Kim Zimmer (my favorite of the books), and Susan Lucci…. but I’ll be passing on this one. I don’t like premature autobiographies that represent relatively short careers and I didn’t care for her work on Y&R. But I’m sure she has a fan base that will enjoy it. More power to ’em.

Justin…dude…be afraid. Be very, very afraid…

I’ve loved Chrishell from her AMC days & now in Selling Sunset, so I’ll be reading her book.

I used to watch this is us, but stopped after S1 bc of all the maudlin drama. After what her ex did to her, I’m glad I stopped. He’s overrated, rude & what he did to her – divorcing her by TEXT – is unforgivable. I’m happy she can move on, but I’ll never watch him in anything he does. I’m a forever fan of Chrishell.

I bet Justin Hartman will be interested in this book. She will certainly describe what a wonderful husband he was.

I can’t wait to see what she says about Justin Hartley Never liked him as Adam either.

Agree. He’s just a pompass ass!

Watching Selling Sunset. Love this show can not believe Justin Hartmann let her know about divorce by text. What a loser. May not watch This is Us again. He is a bad example of a man.

Plus, a couple of my Broadway friends and a very well known Czech actress (Hana Vagnerova).”

According to Jacob, the production start date is April 1st. He added on the premise of the film, “It’s very Agatha Christie sort of ‘Knives Out’ without having a hundred million dollars to shoot it, but still will be a lovely film nonetheless.” Young said the plan is to finish all principal photography by April 17th.

At the beginning of the latest episode of General Hospital star, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos) State of Mind series, he delivered some heartbreaking news with a purpose.

Kyle Oldham, the daughter of former All My Children star, Lee Meriwether (ex-Ruth Martin), who previously made a guest appearance on Benard’s show, returned for a new interview which will be coming soon.

During their conversation, Oldham shared that her beloved mother has Alzheimer’s. Sadly, according to Benard, Kyle also revealed she has been diagnosed with the disease as well.

Maurice expressed, “We talked about her mother and having Alzheimer’s and it was an amazing interview. And then Kyle said, ‘I gotta tell you something. I have Alzheimer’s.’”

Apparently, Kyle has agreed to come on State of Mind, periodically as the effects of Alzheimer’s take a hold of her to help educate others. “We decided that she was gonna come in … she was gonna call me and tell me as she progresses,” Benard shared. “She was going to come in again so the audience could see with their eyes what Alzheimer’s does to someone.”

Benard’s guest for this current episode of State of Mind was Vernee Watson (Stella, GH), who along with Maurice, was part of the Alzheimer’s storyline on the ABC daytime drama series that saw Mike Corbin (Max Gail) eventually pass away.

As for Lee Meriwether, not only is she known for her role on AMC, but also for her roles as Catwoman in Batman: The Movie, and The Courtship of Eddie’s Father, and for the television series, Barnaby Jones, the New Andy Griffith Show and The Munsters to name only a few.

In soap operas, Meriwether was cast in The Young Marrieds years prior to her time on All My Children where she replaced Mary Fickett in the matriarchal role in the Martin family. She played the role from 1996-99, 2002-03, and 2007-11.

Meriwether’s daughter, Kyle Oldham, has been an actress and spokesperson herself through the years. She appeared on The Price is Right for over 14 years until she couldn’t anymore after going through multiple surgeries in her adult life.

You can check out the full episode of State of Mind with Maurice an Vernee below.
