I'll tell you what. I'm going to level with you. It's been a very hard few weeks. A LOT has been going on. When the time comes to talk more about it, I will. I promise.
Right now all I can say is it's about to get really, really intense on the air shows. And it's worth watching. It's like nothing I've ever acted or been involved with story-wise before.
I totally understand that the character of "Kelly" drives some people crazy. But please remember, I am just the actress.
I'm glad to occasionally be given the opportunity to entertain you, whether it's on Y&R or elsewhere. And if you love the character or hate her, it's all good. Maybe just don't tag me when you hate on her, please, because my work means something to me. I hold the characters I get to create close to my heart. Maybe that's "over-sensitive" of me but I don't know how else to be without turning into a hard woman. And I'm already tougher than I want to be.
Daytime TV has been very, very good to me and I am so grateful for everything it's given me. And daytime fans have been beyond amazing. I can always count on you.
As for comments and stuff: it's a free country. I don't want to tell you how to feel or try and control how you act on social media, but please try and remember I'm a real, live, human being on the other end of some of those unfriendly comments. That's all. Just please try and remember that. Because I do. I know you're all real, live human beings. That's why I have never passed on my social media to a company or even a PR person. It's always me. Always. Maybe that's foolish but I enjoy the connection. If there's one thing I understand, it's loneliness.
Believe it or not, I really do.
I don't wanna lie to you about anything but I also don't want to jump the shark and ruin a cool storyline. So it's best I don't say anything until you see it for yourselves and make up your own mind about what it means.
It's a mystery, and nothing's worse than someone telling you what happens before you read the book.
As for me, the actor, the person who plays "Kelly," I feel like I have a broken heart. Is that because I'm too close to "Kelly" or too close to my work? Do I care too much? Maybe. Probably. I don't know. But I guess I'm just that kind of actor.
And that's all I can say.
