They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but we wonder what good is a picture when you can’t recognize the subject? Above is a snapshot of a future star of soaps but can you guess who this buttoned-up cutie grew up to be?
Star Of The Soaps
Obviously, this young lady (now all grown up) is either currently starring on, or is an alum of one of the four remaining daytime dramas – The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of our Lives, General Hospital, and The Young and the Restless – but that’s probably not much of a hint.
So try these on for size. She is a New York Times Best-Selling Author, a reality television star, and a former Dancing with the Stars competitor who took to the floor with Maksim Chmerkivskiy by her side. She is also the developer of a skincare line.
But just who can she be? Is this a photograph of Denise Richards (Shauna Fulton, BB), Lisa Rinna (ex-Billie Reed, DAYS), Kelly Monaco (Samantha McCall), or Michelle Stafford (Phyllis Summers, YR)?
Rinna’s 2012 literary effort, Rinnavation: Getting Your Best Life Ever, was a New York Times best-seller and she is, of course, well known for her participation in Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. And yes she did indeed participate on Dancing with the Stars. However, she isn’t today’s featured star.
Sure Monaco was apart of the inaugural cast of Dancing with the Stars. And she did star in a reality series (E!’s Dirty Soap) and appear opposite Mr. Chmerkovskiy. But her partner on DWTS was Alec Mazo – Monaco’s work with Maksim was done on the set of General Hospital.
Stafford’s skincare product line – Skin Nation – is said to be organic, gluten-free, and certified cruelty free by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). But her work in the cosmetics industry is the only thing that this YR favorite has in common with today’s mystery child.
Richards has been a regular on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills since 2018, and her 2011 memoir, The Real Girl Next Door, was a New York Times Best-Seller. She competed on DWTS in 2009 – alongside Maksim – but wound up being the second celebrity eliminated. Her skincare line, CBMe Beauty was launched on May 1 of this year.
So, if you hazarded a guess that perhaps the future star of soaps seen in the image above was Denise Richards, then you were absolutely correct!
