    ex-ATWT , Kelly Menighan forever lauded

    it took me a long…. long …. long while to get over her as a recast… because of how much I loved Melanie Smith ( 1997-1982

    who didn’t love As the World Turns

    just one heck of a complete picture… where all walks of life totally encompassed this best of show

    Kelly Menighan along with her mother… Susan have always been 2 of my favorite core characters

    it was a lovely article in the latest SOD issue to feature a blast from the past.

    she’s divorced from Jon Hensley. whodathunk. be that as it may… she has picked up the pieces of her life and MOVED

    couldn’t be happier.

    PS : I most love how all actors from the long ago past… are just so endearing in how much care – they learned – to respect daytime. knowing full well , like the audience that it was a big arena in which all had to contribute. what class, unity, and love… with all that much more passion that just ignited

    it is so nice to hear her laud , respectfully, how much she learned from the cast… and points out Dr. Bob… mom Susan, and Lucinda Walsh… just to drop HUGE names who helped along the way.

    she lovingly spoke about Hal Munson

    Take Care “Emily”

    Ms. Kelly Menighan… be well

    At least the people who attended the Creative Arts Emmys dressed for the age & weight they ARE versus the age & weight they want to be.

    Mary Beth Evans–so richly deserving. Such a beautiful, fulfilled, loving life she seems to live. Good on her. And it shows in her lovely, expressive face.
