Nah, Melissa Reeves gets bashed because she baited folks with her personal beliefs and then couldn't stand the heat when it got to her, her forehead lines are simply a means to an end for those who dislike her.
Plenty of actresses have aged naturally or at least subtly on camera. The Jackie Zeman was never a great beauty and she changed her look, even if just her hairstyle and style, frequently. She just getting overdone fillers and aggressive Botox. It's very little actual surgery.
Robin Strasser has moved to Thousand Oaks, California, she closed on a house that has a curved staircase and a pool and several mature oak trees in the backyard, in June. She's shipped the Dorian Lord portrait out west.
She's rented out her Upper East Side townhouse:
I had to watch the Bobbie and Luke goodbye scenes. The last moment where Tony Geary quietly tells Jackie Zeman he loves her (and vice versa and yes I mean to use their real life names), was beautiful and showed that the chemistry they always had as brother and sister never, ever dimmed.
So Wendy disclosed publicly that Big Kev has beat her? Gosh, that's awful.
Wendy's been living in her house in New Jersey for years now, I think after the TV show started she moved into a proper house - and it's very nice but also surprisingly normal. Wendy is very proudly from New Jersey, the other week she was saying that she really needs a drive thru bank, a drive thru McDonalds etc, she couldn't imagine living in NYC.
It took some patience for me to get to when the show kicked into high gear - from episode 6 through 10 the show was just excellent. It was uneven prior to that. But it's definitely worth watching, the first season ended up being extremely satisfying - there was a solid, clear arc.
It isn't known how many episodes Dame Joan is in for the second season, but judging from the filming schedule 2 or 3 episodes at least seems certain. They're still filming the season so she may have more filming to do.
Ugh, that is so sad. Wendy has said on Howard Stern that Big Kev "knows how to put her in her place" and knows how to "handle a woman like her"...and it's no secret that he cheated on her when she was pregnant with Little Kev. It very well may be that the show is Wendy's escape from that kind of domestic misery.
Wendy's after show for her last episode of the season featured some tears - sometimes it seems like Wendy can't believe her luck, other times it seems like there's something sad going on behind the scenes with her, who knows!
