Kelly Sullivan Previews Her Role In Tyler Perry’s New Series, TOO CLOSE TO HOME!

General Hospital (Ex-Connie) and The Young and the Restless (Ex-Sage) Kelly Sullivan has been busy since departing the world of daytime.  She is about to be seen in the new Tyler Perry primetime series, Too Close To Home on TLC.  The show makes its debut on Monday August 22nd at 9PM ET/8PM CT.

In Too Close To Home, Sullivan plays a single mom named Bonnie, who is the oldest of three sisters.  Bonnie work in a diner as waitress and has four kids.  However, she lives in a rundown trailer park in Happy, Alabama.

Bonnie’s other sisters include: Shelby (Brooke Anne Smith) who is addicted to drugs, and middle sis Anna (Danielle Savre} who comes back to Alabama following her involvement with a sex scandal in Washington D.C!

Sullivan told TV Insider on her role: “Bonnie and her family represent the forgotten ones, people who have been dealt a really rough hand in life, people who don’t have a voice. And that is a big part of America.”  She added, “This is a story about what happens when the s–t hits the fan—and who bounces back and who can’t handle it. It’s real and it’s raw.”

As to how soapy Too Close To Home is? Kelly teased: “Oh don’t worry! Everybody in Happy has their skeletons—and when they are revealed, it is spine-tingling.”

Below watch Kelly talk the difference of working on a daytime soap vs working on the nighttime series and more with the cast at the media screening in Atlanta.  Then let us know if you are looking forward to seeing Kelly in her new role on Too Close To Home?

I watched and will watch the next episode. I have always liked Kelly and thought she was good in her role as a trailer park mom to her sister’s kids.

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Thank you General Hospital. Honored to be part of television history not only on this show, but to be among the first actors back to work in town post-Covid. The set always felt safe, and I was proud to be in front of the camera in such a strange time  Thank you for everything.  Stay soapy.”
