I remember being in Atlantic City once when I was 18 or 19 and a sea of people were screaming and pulling their hair because I was there. It was weird. Nobody deserves adulation like that. I tried to explain it to my kids once. I said ‘Mommy used to be kind of cool kind of like a Britney Spears.’
I’ve always loved interior design.
Most of my actor friends don’t believe it’s possible to let go of it and be happy and for a while that was true for me. For the first two years I ached every day. And I had such bad dreams. But then I made the decision to start working on my little shop and all that went away.
I would stay on but ‘General Hospital’ honestly doesn’t seem to want that relationship with this character at the moment. They want little short doses during sweeps periods.
