I didn’t either. I was looking in the article for a reference to “adoption” or “surrogate.”

She must have been pregnant in her waning days on Y&R but didn’t look like she was expecting.

I like her but I’m not buying this sentence in the article: “Many have considered Collins work in her final storyline before her exit to be some of her finest work.” Collins is a good actress but the writing for her was so horrible when she left that I can’t believe anyone would think this is her “finest work.” This is not a criticism of her acting but a critique of the quality of the script she was given.
