NEWS: Kimberly McCullough, Sean Kanan, Sian Blake, Daytime Diversity

Kimberly McCullough
General Hospital star Kimberly McCullough writes revealing year end blog, including having a brain cyst and losing a baby at 22 weeks
"My heart was so full and then it broke," wrote McCullough (Robin on GH). "I had lost my baby girl. It was too much. I didn’t need to learn this lesson. I wasn’t interested. But I wasn’t in control. These things happen and no, I don’t believe they happen 'for a reason.' I’m still processing, still healing, but anyone who has gone through it knows, losing a baby at 22 weeks is tragic. One thing I am proud of however was that I allowed myself to be happy and to relish the moment. I sat in all that goodness and I can recall those feelings (when I’m having different ones) and hope that it can be like that again."
