Did You Know?
There were many guidelines [in 1950s soaps]. This was way before Women's Lib. You could NEVER get divorced. That is why so many leading men died. In order to further the story you had to kill off the guy because it was a woman's medium. You killed off the guy and then the heroine married somebody else. If you were a leading man you never signed a long term lease.
First husband was actor Michael Thoma
, who appeared in the series Fame
(1982) and Eight Is Enough
(1977). Second husband, Joe Patti, married since 1967, was a jazz drummer now retired.
