Adopted a daughter in 1989.
Lost two major roles in the last minute: in 1986 she was promised the role of Stephanie Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful (1987) by Gail Kobe who she knew from Guiding Light (1952), but William J. Bell opted for Susan Flannery instead. And in 1993 she was about to join As the World Turns (1956) but the character never came to life as head writer Douglas Marland suffered an untimely death.
Adopted a son in 1991.
