Ingo Rademacher Sues ABC Over Vaccine Mandate

Photo: JPI

Former General Hospital cast member, Ingo Rademacher is once again making headlines.  The fired actor, who had played Jasper Jacks aka Jax, on the ABC soap opera, is now suing ABC over its Covid-19 vaccine mandate.  Ingo was terminated from GH after failing to comply with its mandate.

According to TMZ, Rademacher filed documents in Los Angeles Court on Monday, saying he was terminated in early November for refusing to get a vaccination shot, which he calls a violation of his right to privacy under the California Constitution.

Oh, dear. Seeing as the Supreme Court decided in 1905 – yes, 1905 – that vaccine mandates were constitutional, and that this week the current Supreme Court declined to overturn a vaccine mandate for healthcare workers in New York State for religious reasons, this is going nowhere. Just a headline-grabbing move.

When are people going to realize it’s a shot NOT a vaccine. How many vaccines have you taken in your life that you have to keep taking over and over and over? NONE. Calling it a vaccine is just blurring the lines. If the media would post a study on natural immunity vs the shot, I think the country would be shocked.

Betsy-MEDICAL definition of a vaccine is biological preparation used to stimulate body’s immune response against a disease. MEDICAL definition of a shot- hypodermic injection. GET THE MESSAGE?

“Vaccine = a substance used to stimulate the production of antibodies and provide immunity against one or several diseases, prepared from the causative agent of a disease, its products, or a synthetic substitute, treated to act as an antigen without inducing the disease.
“every year the flu vaccine is modified to deal with new strains of the virus””

“Shot = an injection of a drug or vaccine.”

The shot is the means by which the vaccine enters your body.

You are very misinformed.

Thank you for a dose of intelligence on here!

JJ- you and I have a very different idea as to what a dose of intelligence is.

We get a flu shot/vaccine each and every year. Children get booster shots after their initial vaccine shots. It’s normal and it’s how it works.

Hospital workers can not keep up with Covid admissions due to unvaccinated people dying. They have no natural immunity! You were fed lies by tv and radio news people! You he vaccines are working so get one! Signed an RN of 23 years!!

Religious exemption??

Well, I never knew Ingo was especially a religious guy, but I’ll take his word for that I guess. Which particular religion is he claiming?? Because for the record, I seem to recall Pope Frank and many recognized leaders of the Protestants, Mormons, Jews, and Muslims all speaking favorably of the vaccine. Some even literally calling it a “godsend”.

Same with the Buddhists & the Hindus, from what I recall.

If Ingo’s claiming to be a Satanist, that would certainly be news to me, but if he is…. just get the damned shot already.

So that pretty much covers all the religious bases I can think of…. Hell, even if he worships that bloated Orange turd (as many of the folks claiming these “exemptions” do) then surely you know that HE got vaccinated, right??

He’s about as religious as The Flying Nun. Wait; was she religious? I read an interview with him from a few years ago when he said he wasn’t necessarily against vaccines; just wouldn’t want to give them to an infant. Something to that effect. Now he’s all about conspiracy theories and “freedom” to infect others. I think he was also anti-mask because that, too, is about being “controlled.” Which of course didn’t stop his wife from making them and him promoting them; they’re still selling on their website. I see a future cult leader in the Senate… And, yes, he’s a Trumpster.

Christian scientists don’t believe in human science and medicine. I understand Steve Burton is a Christian scientist, but if it didn’t work for him… Good luck trying to go up against Disney…

That’s what I think he’s going up against Disney… does he not realize Disney owns ABC?
He won’t get very far with this lawsuit

I agree with you 100 percent

Steve tried medical and religious exemptions I’m thinking that when the pope says ok get vaccinated the religious exemption is kinda put the window… funny how everyone else pm staff at abc Disney had no problem following the rules…

If Rademacher is truly concerned about his “right to privacy,” may I suggest he crawl under a rock somewhere? Please note: I am not mandating this — I know how much he hates mandates. And what gall: to trot out the tiresome standby, “religious exemption.”

Love this!!!

Thank you, Que4u!

I have a better suggestion, he can take his sorry behind back to Australia and never come back if he is being controlled.

Andre, I definitely like your idea!

Ingo is a man child plain and simple! Boohoo I have to get vaccinated or lose my job! Give me a break. Hope you aren’t wearing your seatbelt because that’s a mandate as well

The 10 commandments tell you to love your neighbor as yourself and getting vaccinated is the way to do that so this religious exemption excuse is a bunch of crap.

❤️

He is very misguided. I hope his children do not contract the virus due to his idiosy.

Good for you Ingo, sued the pants out of them!!! It’s your body, it’s your choice!!! I can’t even watch soap opera’s without them playing the political card!! I’m so done with GH!!

Agree

He’s acting like a privileged spoiled brat, that things didn’t go his way so now he’s going to try to sue to get money he’s no longer making since he was fired. I think he’s burned that bridge and he just needs to move on!

Way to go Ingo! We must all fight this intrusion into our lives and freedoms. Don’t give up. You are a rarity in your business

Frances- Ingo’s rights STOP when he is endangering the health of others. Each of his co-stars has the right to refuse to work with those people who are not vaccinated. Ingo KNEW he would be let go by GH if he did not get vaccinated.

Oh, give me an effin break!!

I think he is right! Don’t get me wrong I got the first two shots and a booster but that was my choice and my health was bad. It was my choice, as it should be his choice!! Their going to ask him to explain his religious beliefs in America? He will win this lawsuit and. It have to act he’ll be able to retire and surf the rest of his life!!

I am confused… I read his firing was due to “unkind remarks’ he made regarding/about a (transgender) cast member – Which is it? If he did make said rumored remarks, I personally find his comments totally uncalled for and offensive – but to add insult to injury and sue ABC/DISNEY over the vaccine mandate (which is their RIGHT) I’ve heard enough from him. Steve Burton also opposed the vaccine mandate and I respect his decision (do not agree with him) to accept the consequences associated with mandate set by ABC/Disney. I love the Jason character and hope that Steve returns. As a watcher of GH for over 50 years, I have a vested interest in this Soap and its characters and agree with the ABC/Disney mandate to protect cast members and crew.

He and Steve were both let go because they didn’t comply with the vaccine requirements. The other issue you refer to was that Ingo posted a “meme” with a picture of Dr. Rachel Levine, who is a transgender woman, that called her a “dude.” The purpose? To state she’s not a woman for some idiotic political point he was trying to make (He shared that “meme” from a post by a bigoted right winger.) He got a lot of push back for his despicable decision to post it from many of the other GH actors. Cassandra James, who play Terry, is a trans woman and called him out, as did Nancy, Laura, Eden, Maura, and others.. but he wasn’t fired for it. As said, he was already let go because of their vaccine requirement, same as Steve.

Isn’t it funny, Rebecca1, how people’s true character gets exposed in spite of their best efforts to whitewash it… He’s suing Disney over a “principle”? As Jeannie Bueller said, “Yeah right. Dry that one out and you can fertilize the lawn.” He wants an out-of-court settlement he can retire on, since the next 20 years he planned on playing Jax have apparently been sidelined, or worse.

I hope he wins his choice his body we have rights

Shelly Dietzler-just as Ingo’s co-stars have the right NOT to be required to work with someone who is not vaccinated.

THANK YOU!

You don’t have rights when it can effect other people’s health.

Anti vaxxers either don’t see it that way, don’t believe in the severity of COVID or just don’t care. This ‘my body my choice’ argument is not valid. I can get the virus when exposed to someone who has it. I can’t get pregnant by being around a pregnant woman. COVID is highly contagious, and the variants, even more so.

The absolute truth about all of this is that right wingers only adopted this anti-mask/anti vaccine cult mentality right around mid April 2020 when statistics showed that COVID was killing more black & brown people than it was white people. Now there are a number of reasons for that. Most of them come down to economics and which populations (generally speaking) are likely to have better access to health care and healthier diets (look up “food deserts” if you need clarification on that one). There’s also the fact that darker skinned people have a better chance of being deficient in Vitamin D – which is naturally absorbed by the skin from sunlight. And while Vitamin D is NOT a cure for Covid (despite what the snake oil peddlers claim) it IS a boost to the mortal immune system in general, and it’s probably a good move for anybody to take Vitamin D supplements in the winter months, when that big yellow natural source isn’t really present in many parts of the world.

So like most by-products of the Trump fiasco, this is deeply rooted in bigotry. That’s not to say that Ingo or Steve are racists themselves (though Ingo has been called out for other forms of bigoted hate recently) but they have bought into these idiotic doctrines that are spread by the same crowd who marched down the streets with their Tiki torches shouting “Jews will not replace us” and other hateful dragonshit.

Ingo, Steve and the other anti-vaxxers do have their rights. So since these viruses are so contagious and deadly they can just stay isolated at home. Not fun but everyone has to sacrifice to get through covid as best we can.

Keep those donuts coming as you become a fat pos now work on keeping your immune system healthy! Yep the government helps you so much knock it off ! Now Ingo go find a job and quit making lawyers richer ! This has and always will be about the money ! Follow science how well did Fauci fight it help the gay community when the aids virus went nuts? He is a dwarf whose goal is to make himself richer and more powerful ! Get smart take care of yourself ! If this so called vaccine was the answer then why is Washington exempt??? Use the brains god gave you read everything you can on helping your immune system !! You know that thing God gave you!! Smarten up!!

Kay…Good idea to always work on keeping your immune system healthy, The White House has been consistent and informative with their almost daily covid messaging including wearing masks, social distancing and getting vaccinated. Along with updates on the frequent changes of a virus that keeps mutating and is really infectious. And hard when not all persons and some states aren’t doing what they can to stop the spread. I like and respect Fauci.

I know devout people of faith who are refusing to get the vaccine for religious reasons. I think they are wrong but I believe its their right to refuse and we shouldn’t trivialize their sincere beliefs. I also believe a company like Disney has the right to require its employees to be vaccinated. His role as an actor requires him to be on a closed set in close proximity to other actors and staff and possibly act in scenes where social distancing is impossible. I don’t think he is going to win.

He’s using the religious exemption, as many are, to first get out of the mandate and now, to sue. Hes been spewing conspiracy theories and screaming “medical freedom.” He simply didn’t want to take it, and, yes, that’s his right. And it’s a company’s right, particularly during a pandemic in a country with 800,000 deaths, to require a vaccination for employment.

Well, I should have seen that one coming, shouldn’t I? Good grief, what a wuss this guy has turned out to be. Just get the freaking shot, dude.

It’s hilarious! Let him go back to Australia with this nonsense he’ll see that he gets nowhere! Just goes to show how far this country bends over backward to accommodate right wingers.

I’m so proud of him for standing up for what he believes. That mandate is total BS. I hope he wins!!! The country has become so brainwashed by the media they can’t see what’s happening right in front of their faces. Wake up!!

Ingo can stand up for what he believes in. What Ingo CANNOT do is endanger the health of those people around him. California and Federal law both make it clear that COVID is a threat to the health of all Americans. As for the mandate, you and Ingo have two choices: either get vaccinated OR stay away from other people.

He can choose not to be vaccinated, but the show has a right to do what they feel is best to protect their cast and crew. Exercising his right doesn’t mean that there are no consequences for his choices. Steve Burton, although I don’t agree with his stance, has handled his exit with much more grace.

Which amendment of the Constitution guarantees a TV job at Disney Co?

Good for him! He should have been fired for his insensitive social media posts, not for doing as he chooses with his own body.

Bill-no sympathy for Ingo on getting fired for refusing to get vaccinated. Ingo can do what he wants with his body but Ingo cannot endanger the health of people around him. I hope Ingo has a long and happy life away from people.

Well, thats it for Ingo at GH! Why not hire Danny Boaz who recently played Chance on Y&R?

Backing you 100 percent this whole thing is nothing but for financial n political gain…absolutely illegal…anyone needing religious exemption letter contact me…I commend you Sir for standing up for God!!! Now us the time to put on the armor of God!!!

I’ve known my Former Employer a lot longer than you have, and while I’m obviously not usually endorsing him, I’d bet any number of souls that he would want you to trust the scientists. Didn’t he give them the brains to do their jobs, after all?

Perhaps this (along with all the freakish weather lately, and other things) is meant to be a wakeup call to you mortals, because you disregarded the mission he gave to those naked folks in the Garden of Eden to be good stewards of his creation.

Believe me, I was there – wearing a snake suit – so I know what he said!

Pamela -ingo standing up for God!?! That is absolutely the silliest comment yet! Next in line for silliest comment “put on the armor of God”.

YOU have read the recent United States Supreme Court ruling on vaccine mandate? The Court leaves in place the vaccination mandate for New York health care workers. Do you honestly think the Supreme Court won’t side with Disney on its vaccination mandate?

FYI -I seriously doubt that YOU ARE LEGALLY ALLOWED to grant a religious exemption letter that will be bc accepted by Disney and other corporations.

I am sad this issue of being vaccinated or not has come into our daily escape, aka “our soap”. I am vaccinated and now don’t know how i would feel if either Jason or Jax came back… sad… i just want to watch my soap.

He’s a selfish, childish POS. Not only is he ok with increasing the chance of infecting his coworkers, but then he can’t even accept the consequences of his choice.

After the way ingo has been treating fans of daytime, and anyone who doesn’t agree w him 100% I can’t imagine that abc Disney or hallmark will want much to do with him… I did not believe he thought his angry words would endear him to any fans… let alone Disney fans! Abc Disney I hope you are not being dragged into his one person war against science and his coworkers

Well said, Que4u! Like-minded Fox’s Tucker Carlson interviewed Rademacher, which solidifies his standing as a loon (aka vax denier, truth denier, conspiracy theorist).

What a creep. There’s no coming back from this. His inability to face the consequences of his actions is astounding. Who would have thought that such a big prick would be so afraid of a little prick?

Go Jax I hope you win and get your job back. Include Steve Burton so we can have Jason back too

At this point it’s more likely that the entire show (and all of TV) will be shut down again soon, as rapidly as this new Covid variant is spreading around.

Timing couldn’t be worse…. Helliday season, and not a damned thing on TV but sappy Xmas movies, followed by two months of reruns in Jan/Feb.

And that’s WITHOUT a shutdown. Put a new covid lockdown on top of that, and it’s going to be one HELL of a boring rest of the winter & spring.

I’m immortal, so the virus can’t get me…. but the resulting boredom of another shutdown definitely will.

The Young and the Restless and General Hospital Actress and Writer, Meg Bennett, Passes Away at 75

Meg Bennett, who had played Julia Newman and later became a writer for the top-rated daytime drama, The Young and the Restless has died at the age of 75.  The news comes from her family who shared that she lost her battle to cancer back on April 11th.

Daytime fans remember fondly, Meg’s portrayal of Victor’s (Eric Braeden)first wife. Bennett joined the show in 1980, after her first soap stint for two years in the role of Liza Walton on Search for Tomorrow.

Impressed by her story notes, the late Bill Bell, then head writer of Y&R, had Meg doing double duty acting and writing on the show from 1983-1987. When he decided to write off the character of Julia, he also wanted Meg to stick around as a writer.  Not only did this begin a whole other daytime career for Bennett, but she was not done playing Julia either. Throughout the decades, Julia would still come back to Genoa City for a visit. Most recently, Y&R fans saw Julia in 2018, and again in 2020.

Bennett also appeared on Santa Barbara and was a writer on that show as well from 1991-1993. She played the role of Megan Richardson. It was next that Meg had her longest writing stint coming to ABC’s General Hospital. Meg wrote for GH from 1993-2011.

In 1995, Bennett won her first Daytime Emmy for writing and her personal life changed after falling in love with nine-time Daytime Emmy winner, former GH head writer, Bob Guza Jr. In addition, GH also utilized Bennett for her acting skill when she was cast as the villainess Allegra Montenegro.  Meg and Bog Guza were officially married in 2004 and purchased a home once owned by Boris Karloff and Gregory Peck.

Additionally, Meg wrote for The Bold and the Beautiful 1987-1989 and later served as a executive story consultant to Brad Bell from 2002-2004.  She also wrote for Sunset Beach, Generations and GH: Night Shift throughout her writing career. She went on to win five WGA Awards for GH and Santa Barbara.

Meg is survived by her husband of 19 years, Robert Guza Jr., two stepdaughters, four grandchildren, a brother and a sister.

GH’s Finola Hughes Chats on Her Lead Actress Daytime Emmy Nomination, New Directions for Characters in Port Charles, and Anna’s Love Life

In four out of the last five years, General Hospital favorite, Finola Hughes (Anna Devane), has almost become a perennial nominee having once again scored a Daytime Emmy Nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Lead Actress for the upcoming 51st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

Hard to believe, but Hughes won her one and only Daytime Emmy back in 1991, and has amassed a total of 11 Emmy nominations during her enduring daytime drama career. As those who have watched GH know, throughout any calendar year, you can find numerous stellar performances by Finola that could be tops on any Emmy reel.

Michael Fairman TV chatted with Finola during the 10th annual Daytime Emmy Nominations Special to get her reaction to landing in the field of six fantastic women vying for gold, what scenes went on her now Emmy-nominated reel, what she thinks of how GH is shaking things up under new head writers, Patrick Mulcahey and Elizabeth Korte, and the future of Anna’s love life. Here’s what she shared below.

What scenes did you wind up submitting that landed you in the running for the Daytime Emmy in this year’s Lead Actress category?

FINOLA: The whole Charlotte (Scarlett Fernandez) shooting and the accident and that whole thing. Then, talking about that with Sonny (Maurice Benard), and then a bit of the breakup with Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), and then finding out that Valentin had lied.

Who helped you put the reel together?

FINOLA: One of our producers at GH, Michelle Henry. We have these amazing producers. They’re sort of the unsung heroes. They’re in the booth all day when we’re shooting. They do this wonderful thing where they earmark something, if they think that it’s been a good performance. So, they just have this sort of little list (that helps come Emmy time). So, that’s how that worked with Michelle.

Photo: ABC

Now you’ve had a string of recent Daytime Emmy nominations. Do you think GH is  writing more for your strengths in the last several years?

FINOLA:  Yes, and I think it’s become stronger recently. I think writers really take the lead sometimes from an actress or an actor who’s going through something or moving through something in their life. Maybe, that’s they were just seeing, you know, different layers and colors and so they started to write to that.  I’m not sure. It certainly felt like I’ve had some things (material) that resonated with me.

What I have loved about Anna is that she is very complex. She often wrestles with herself over her past as a double agent, or certain guilt that she carries around. It’s interesting when the lines are blurred for her and things get messy.

FINOLA:  I do well with complex and I like messy.

So, what do you think about the nominees in the Lead Actress category with you?

FINOLA:  They are great. I don’t know Annika Noelle (Hope, B&B) very well, but I hear she did wonderful work and she sent me a lovely message. Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke, B&B) I obviously reached out to, Tamara Braun (Ava, DAYS) reached out to me, and Michelle Stafford (Phyllis, Y&R) and I just got on the phone last night and congratulated each other on our nominations, and of course, Cynthia (Watros) is here with me at GH.

Photo: JPI

You do like do like the fashion of it all for Emmy night, correct?

FINOLA: God, I I live for it. I’m as shallow as that. I might play some complex on television, but I’m that shallow in real life.

So, do you go by the trends of what to pick out to wear for a red carpet, or you just kind of go off what you think looks good on you?

FINOLA: I do like the trends. I really like the fact that the sleeve is having a big moment right now since the film Poor Things. It sent it into the stratosphere.

It’s been 33 years since you won your last Emmy. Do you think you’re a better actress now than when you were even 10 years ago?

FINOLA: I have no idea. It feels like a game of golf always for me, because get on set, like today, I was doing some work this morning and I just doubt myself.  I’m like, “Did I really bring it?” I do think I’m harder on myself now than I was when I was younger, because I really didn’t know what I was doing at all.  It’s a very hard question to answer. I feel like it’s different, but I’m constantly in battle with myself as to whether something works or not.

Photo: ABC


What are your thoughts then on being Emmy-nominated, at times, for more than three decades?

FINOLA: At this point in my life, I just find the whole thing encouraging and extraordinarily sort of affirming, and sweet and lovely. It’s extraordinary to even be acknowledged. That’s the truth.

Currently, on-air, Anna is taking a harder line with Sonny. There’s been a shift.

FINOLA:  Yes. That’s been really interesting. I was talking about this with Steve Burton (Jason), and we actually were working together today. We found like this level between the two of us when it comes to Sonny. It was just really like another whole level as to what I’m doing. I think what’s happened is people’s roles in Port Charles are becoming delineated, you know, where there’s less gray. It’s like we’re sort of moving into areas, right? All of us. That’s kind of great because then you’ve got the hospital, you’ve got the police station, you’ve got the mob, you’ve got the Quartermaines you’ve got Curtis’ nightclub, and so there’s these different areas. Then, your character becomes very specific.  I had those scenes with Genie Francis (Laura) that aired the other day, and it makes sense that we are sort of waking up because unfortunately Sonny’s going through something which we don’t know about, but he’s not behaving well. So, therefore we are like, “If he would do that, then we need to wake up to that Sonny has always been like that.” But, it’s not true. Sonny hasn’t always been like that. We still deal in the gray, because we are searching for the gray in ourselves, which is interesting. And then we have to make a decision, such as, “Where do you stand? Who are you actually?” I think posing those questions to the actual characters is kind of interesting.

Photo: ABC

Now, who’s going to be the man in Anna’s life?

FINOLA:  Well, I want to do some more stuff with James. Obviously, James and I text all the time about how we’re not working together. We all know what Valentin’s up to. However,  Anna doesn’t quite know.

I was originally thinking they might put John “Jagger” Cates (Adam Harrington) in a romance with Anna?

FINOLA: Oh, I know. I love Adam. He’s so wonderful, and so is Charles Mesure (Brennan). Obviously, Laura Wright (Carly) has been working with the two of them as well. They’re both looking like they are in love with Carly, so what can I do?  I’ll just take the leftovers. However, I’m hoping that I get to play Valentin. The thing that’s interesting is that he’s a Cassadine. His father has now passed on, so he’s now at the front of the wagon of the Cassadines. It’s in his blood. So, I don’t know what they’ll do.

Photo: ABC

What was our family’s reaction when you told you are an Emmy nominee? 

FINOLA: We had just taped three days of a very big event on the show. I was really tired yesterday and I was sort of laying down pretending to take a nap, as I never can nap in the middle of a day. Then, Frank Valentini (EP, General Hospital) called me to say that, Cynthia Watros and myself, had been nominated for Lead Actress. So, I actually got up and I walked outside and my three kids were sort of wandering around doing kid teenage stuff. I sort of told each of them individually. I was like, “I got nominated.”  They actually said, “Congratulations!” So, I think it actually resonated through the haze of online extravaganzas that teens are looking at it.

Make sure to check out the 2024 Daytime Emmy Nominations Special from this past Friday night below, where several of this year’s Daytime Emmy nominees stopped by the Michael Fairman Channel to share their reactions and more on going for gold come June 7th.

Now let us know, are you happy Finola was nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Lead Actress in a Daytime Drama Series? Who do you hope Anna winds up with romantically down the line on GH under new head writers, Patrick Mulcahey and Elizabeth Korte? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

‘Knots Landing’s’ Donna Mills and Joan Van Ark Reunite for Los Angeles Ballet Season 18 Gala

The women from the the cul-de-sac at Seaview Circle, stepped out last week as the Los Angeles Ballet celebrated its season 18 gala with ceremonies at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills.

The evening was hosted by LAB staunch supporter, Donna Mills (ex-Abby, Knots Landing, ex-Madeline, General Hospital).  The Emmy Award-winning actress met up with her dear friend and former on-screen rival and co-star, Joan Van Ark (ex-Val, Knots Landing, ex-Gloria, The Young and the Restless) as well as her daughter, Chloe Mills, on the red carpet prior to the start of the evening.

This year’s LAB gala honorees included: Academy Award-winning filmmaker, Emmy, and Grammy nominated composer and pianist Kris Bowers, plus accomplished attorney and Los Angeles Ballet Board Chair, Jennifer Bellah Maguire. The honorees each received Angel Awards for the extraordinary contributions they have made to the arts, LAB and the city of Los Angeles.

Los Angeles Ballet is known for classical, contemporary, romantic and neoclassical ballets, for pioneering new works and for presenting relevant works by many of today’s most innovative dance-makers. LAB’s original production of The Nutcracker is an annual holiday favorite for Los Angeles residents and regional, national and international visitors.

Led by Artistic Director Melissa Barak, LAB performs in multiple theater venues across LA County including The Broad Stage in Santa Monica, Royce Hall at UCLA, Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center, Pasadena Civic Auditorium and Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. As part of its mission, LAB wants to expand people’s knowledge of and nurture a love for ballet.

Longtime fans of Donna Mills also know that when early in her career she was a dancer. In fact, when she got her first soap opera gig as a nightclub singer named “Rocket” on Secret Storm, Mills was shocked.

In a 2015 interview with Smashing Interviews Magazine Donna recounted, “I’m not a singer. I was a dancer. Why they chose me to be a nightclub singer, I have no idea, and I actually sang on the show.”

So, glad to see Donna and Joan stepping out together in support of the Los Angeles Ballet? Miss Knots Landing’s Abby and Val? Let us know via the comment section below.
