How many web series is she in? I’m just asking because if she can find all this work in web series, then it must be more profitable than being on a soap opera.

What sponsorship/ financing are her shows getting? Really now.

I’m looking more forward to The Grove than V4 if that’s possible. Sounds fantastic, especially since our girls are starting off solid together. All their problems are from outside the relationship, not within it.

I agree with Bell, I would love to see Molly Burnett as part of this series as well. I have grown to love what she has done with the character of Melanie on Days and think that she would be a lively addition to the Grove. Can’t wait to for the return of Venice season 4. Congrats Crystal and Michael, best wishes to you both.
