    Hopefully she will get a bigger storyline soon. I would rather find out more about her past and mother than Deanna’s. No offense to the actress playing that role, but with OLTL being canceled, i would rather see more Destiny than Deanna.

    Congratulations to Shenell. She is a terrific young actress – so natural. She has so much more to offer than she was given a chance to show. Yet another character that we will not be able to see grow and develop even further. I have loved every scene she was in. I am so glad she is being acknowledged by BET. I hope another soap picks her up, as she has alot to give I am sure. I may be hoping against hope, but I am keeping my fingers crossed that somehow OLTL and AMC will be picked up by another network or cable channel. They all deserve this, including the wonderful Agnes Nixon, who I am sure will not let (her babies) these two great soaps go without giving it all she can. The icing on the cake would be another network or cable channel picking up the soaps, and the ratings go through the roof, which I have no doubt would happen. Take that Frons and Pratt.

    This is totally surprising. Her acting has always been a controversy amongst the fans. While she is indeed cute and spirited, she does appear to be a novice. Her scenes never ring true to me. She has never moved me to tears. Occasionally I would chuckle over some of her lines. The writers never gave Destiny a worthy story, the whole Greg story was a huge mess. I hope the actress goes far, I just can’t believe she is getting nominated for an acting award.
