In 1980, Bell unsuccessfully auditioned for the role of Maggie Gioberti, but the producers thought she was too old to play the part. In 1984, she auditioned for the role of Maggie's mother Charlotte Pershing, but this time the producers thought she was too young. See more »

A BRILLIANT SHOW
7 December 2002 | by ejdawg76See all my reviews

I love this show, i started watching it last year on soapnet and i absolutley love it, i taped every episode and i still watch it everyday. Angela, Richard and Chase when in scenes together have great chemistry. The cast is incredible, Abby Dalton as the psycho daughter of Angela and Margaret Ladd as her looney but very intelligent other daughter Emma are brilliant in their roles. Also stars Susan Sullivan, Ana Alicia, Laura Johnson. I can go on and on, i wish i watched this when i was younger but i was 3 when it started. I highly recommend watching this show.
