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?
